Does this have anything to do with a certain memorial service at St. Paul's?

"...Oh, it's a jolly 'oliday with Mary..."

Lovely picture - love the way the light through her hat makes for a veil that isn't there. I think she would wait for me if I had to go far away...


Blogger Wallace Chapman said ... (5:25 PM) : 

great image. Might even work better in b&w - echoing Jerry Schatzbergs pics of 60's behind the scenes Dior :)

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

the shadow of hat on her face, cold lokking eyes, bright skin and red lipstick...that all make a very aristocratic lady of her, like from the movie "Tredowata"


Blogger Miss Ruby said ... (6:09 PM) : 

Wow, what a fantastic photo. Love the hat!

The shadow of the hat gives her such a mysterious look- so sophisticated! Her lips are so well shaped too!


Blogger M. Barberena said ... (10:18 PM) : 

Lovely. I see her as a murderess in a film noir.


Blogger Eugenia Woods said ... (10:26 PM) : 

Super dramatic. I'd love to see her eye makeup-the copper looks cool!


Blogger Jasmin said ... (10:27 PM) :

Blogger Anna said ... (10:32 PM) : 

There's a Tilda Swinton quality to her. If Swinton wore red lipstick...


Anonymous Bonnie said ... (10:34 PM) : 

I wonder what the red eye makeup looks like without the hat shadow...


Blogger Jonathon Pedrozo said ... (10:39 PM) : 

Oh yeah thats my colour!



Blogger KC said ... (10:50 PM) : 

this photo is so dramatic. reminds me of those old hollywood movies.


Anonymous loolah said ... (11:18 PM) : 

A wonderful picture in so many ways - the lines and shadows, that bare section of lower face.

It also opens up so many questions about that beautiful woman. I think that's what you're so good at.

There's something a bit set about her mouth whereas her eyes are softer - a combination which intrigues, makes you want to know more about who she is. Not what job she does, editor of somethingorother, but who that person really is behind the hat.


Blogger Sweet Confessions said ... (11:55 PM) : 

the contrast of her skin and shadow it's great, love it!!


Anonymous Theobroma said ... (12:09 AM) : 

Allure, mystery, drama, intrigue -- a dash of darkly compelling urban noir, captured in the brilliant light of day. Wonderful.


Anonymous escalante blogger said ... (1:05 AM) : 

Cool hat. But it may be more attractive when the color is pink.


Blogger J.Ro said ... (1:06 AM) : 

Makes me wanna watch 'Four Weddings and a Funeral' again.

Blogger Liz S said ... (6:38 AM) : 

I feel like I should say great stuff about this photo but for some reason I am finding it distracting--or at least the shadows from the hat on her face are.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:51 AM) : 

sometimes a lady is better without a smile.


Anonymous Dana said ... (8:05 AM) : 

Great photo! Beautiful woman. So jazz age. She looks a little like the main character from Masterpiece Theatres "Love for Lydia" or like Anais Nin. That hat and collar are amazing. Swoon big time!! What a woman!


Blogger Davidikus said ... (8:44 AM) : 

Great hat & very nice use of the shadows. It was probably very tempting to expose for the background and give the whole picture an air of darkness but you (or the camera) made an interesting choice of exposing for the face: the shadows remain subdued instead of very black and we can see her expressions).

Very atypical. I like that.


Blogger Marie said ... (9:12 AM) : 

Love how the eyes work with the hat (though if she taken it off she'd have looked as though she had conjunctivits, or terrible insomnia. Just sayin') and mouth. The shadow the brim casts over her face bridges her makeup kind of perfectly.

Anonymous StyleAnywhere said ... (9:38 AM) : 

i love the photo! and there is elegance and authority in her face and fashion! beautiful!


Blogger 82Brute said ... (9:49 AM) : 

My grandmother's family owned one of the first ever hotels in Atlantic City and she grew up there during the Golden era. She was a real beauty in her day. This photograph brings her to life for me. She has the perfect face for this look. It's an incredible shot. I'd love to see how she put the rest of the look together.


Blogger Kate said ... (10:59 AM) : 

Love the picture and especially the shadow but not sure about her eye make up. Love the lippy though!!


Blogger Johanna Urban said ... (11:03 AM) : 

Love her.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

There were so many fashion types around St Paul's yesterday for the memorial, and frankly most of them looked very odd in the 'real' world. However, she looks elegant and stylish, I wish more had looked this good.


Blogger Elena Vasilieva said ... (1:08 PM) : 

gorge photo and that hat is super fab



Anonymous Danielle said ... (2:06 PM) :

Blogger MJCK said ... (5:59 PM) : 

Per-fect picture! She has the mystery of a Kees van Dongen painting.


Anonymous mabelmabel said ... (7:49 PM) : 

Love her look: timeless, stately, elegant, supremely self-conscious sans apology.

She is multi-lingual, chooses her words carefully. Know I'd hang on her every word.

This is why I follow the Sartorialist.

Mysterious. And beautiful.

Incredible, I actually love her lips...they remind me of a canoe strangely...

All the best


Anonymous blessedbabe said ... (10:56 AM) : 

I love the shadows falling exactly in an angle on the nose with the focus on such a well-done red lip. I just can't pull off a red lip as well as she does, but I guess like here, the secret is to make it matte.


Anonymous Philippine said ... (6:48 AM) : 

mademoiselle Chanel?
