Stop it! She must have just walked out of a Vogue shoot, right? Are those leather shorts she is wearing? WOW!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

She looks great but the bike is definitely just a prop for the photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:41 AM) : 

wow she's gorgeous, is that a candid shot or did you set it up? you don't often see girls like that wandering about on the street, and that bike looks too big for her....

Nothing I love more than seeing a girl in heels with a bike! Loving those leather shorts.

Killer shoes.

Lovely :-)


Blogger clarapeix said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Hey! the girl is trying to steal a bike! ;-)

She has already put her bag on it, but she obviously doesn't have the key to unlock it... and I'm pretty sure her shoes are not appropriate for biking...

Mr Schuman your love for girls on bikes will lose you one day ;-)

great pic, as always.

Not her bike I guess,love the super high heels and the bag is a big love.Oh just the perfect trend color bag!

That's a very stylish take on traditional biker style: leather and boot(ie)s.

Completely chic... but was she riding the bicycle? It's a bit of a contradiction - or maybe those are leather shorts and not a mini skirt?... Regardless - a beautiful woman and a lovely photo. :)

Beautiful accessories! The jewellery, sunglasses and magnificent bag!

Everyone else mentioned the shoes already :)

Love the shoes, and she is so pretty and always well put-together. And for people who commented that one cannot ride a bicycle in shoes/heels like that, yes one can because I've done it many times... safety issue is then a whole other story.

How is it that she can wear those shorts in the cold? And I wonder how the Birkin is going to stay on the bike once she cycles off...great outfit though.

Just gorgeous... I am a huge fan of Olivia's fashion sense. The girl can dress. period. And she's beautiful! Great shot!

Shoe Snob, that is Olivia Palermo - a NY socialite and very much an American :) I doubt she was actually going to ride off on a bike, much less in heels but it is a striking picture none the less. And she is fantastically beautiful and stylish.

Wow, she looks amazing.
I would love to own those shoes :)
Great photo!

it's just a tad hard to believe that Olivia would be riding a bike that looks like that...hmmm.


Blogger I like Her Style said ... (10:35 AM) : 

I do love this look from the cute jackets to the leather shorts to those AMAZING shoes with lace and bows. Can I just say her legs look perfect? maybe from cycling in heels, if so then I should give it a try :). I also love that she is monochromatic to allow for her purse to stand out.

Beautiful shot, although it must be posed, there's no way I could even walk in those heels let alone ride a bike, but kudos to you Scott for taking such a beautiful photograph nonetheless

I love love love that bag...

Not extremely interesting if you ask me. It's all perfect, new and trendy. Beautiful yes but...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:48 AM) : 

I assume this is a posed pic. Does she actually ride a "boy's" bike in those sensible shoes and that mini, along with her h bag?
Now that I have that off my chest, she certainly looks good.


Blogger Ice Vergara said ... (10:49 AM) : 

She's reminds me of a modern Audrey Hepburn. Classy and green! What everyone should do.


Blogger S. said ... (10:53 AM) : 

I ride in heels all the time. It's actually easier than riding in flats. Your foot slides off the pedal in flats.

That being said, I doubt it's her bike.

For everyone who doubts about cycling in those heels, come to Amsterdam see it and believe it. Dutch girls do it all the time ;)
She is gorgeous by the way!

She is remarkably darling in person, and always impeccably styled! :)



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

I will second those who say it is in fact very possible and almost easier to ride a bike with a moderate heel.

But she doesn't look like she could stand getting a chain grease stain or a scuff on the Birkin. I mean, there is no where for her to hang the bag on the bike; no basket or panniers. Scott, come to Austin and see how us real girls do it. I ride 4 miles to campus every day with a proper leather bag clipped on the side of my bike. It's not a Birkin, but then Birkins are not meant to go on a bike!

oh come on, this picture is just so FAKE! like her. Please keep it natural, that´s the cool thing about your photos....

Another proof of the fact that you can ride a bike and look awesome at the same time.

Wish we had more of that in NYC.

She should fasten the Birkin to the bike otherwise somebody will snatch it!
Great shot.

She's absolutely smashing. Would she like to borrow my mountain bike?

The money shot of this beautiful lady is the one of her actually riding the bike. Still, this one ain't bad for a set up.

Blogger Camila said ... (11:49 AM) : 

I think it looks a little staged as well.

That being said, the fact that it is a mans bike and she is wearing heels doesn't mean it is impossible for her to use it. I have borrowed bicycles from men wearing heels that hight (at least) and I have been perfectly fine every time.

Very much doubt that this is real though, looks like she needs the key for the lock...

Well, got it: She has a good personal trainer, AND (more important): She is rich. But I definitely do not like her arrogance, and if she chose to ride a bike, she would have gone for an expensive one (like the one designed by Lagerfeld)... In short: This pic is a fake.

Fabulous photo BUT #1) There is no way she riding a bike (any bike) in those heels. #2) A woman with that sense of style like that....heels, Birkin bag would have a killer bike....not some old road bike. #3) That's a dude's bike! No way is that her bike.....just posing. Great legs though!

And we're off to a great start!

The bike is almost as cool as the bag, which is almost as cool as the shoes, which are almost as cool as the skirt and jacket and glasses, which are nowhere near as cool as those legs..

How come the shots which include bicycles are always so fine?

Olivia on a man's bicycle in those heels?!

The (gorgeous) bag posed just so.

This photo has really taken something away from this blog for me as it is - as everyone has pointed out - fake.

We love seeing whoever you photograph whether 'famous' or random people on the street as we can appreciate you capturing their natural style and inner beauty shining through. Not so here..

Ah well one blip on an otherwise sublime blog! : D

Love you Sart!


Anonymous Jacqueline. said ... (3:02 PM) : 

1. Is this Oliva from "The City?" Because this would explain quite a bit.

2. I notice the bike is still locked. I'm guessing she was just holding on for stability, and not about to scoot away?

I love Olivia and during Fashion Week, I never saw her looking anything but gorgeous in the flesh. That said, I can't believe this was actually her bike (she was at every show so had to have had a driver) - so a staged shot I suspect.

That said, to all the commenters who doubt the possibility of riding in heels - I will add this: I live in Cambridge and it's MUCH easier to cycle in heels than to walk in them (in fact I usually only wear heels when I can cycle to my destination). The trick is to put the balls of your feet on the pedals, rather than where your arch sits (that's just a broken heel waiting to happen).

The shoes! The shorts! The bag! The hair! I love it all.

Olivia is so beautiful! I love her hair, her cheekbones which are accentuated so nicely by her shades. Her shorts are chic and those heels are to die for.


Blogger S. Alice said ... (4:17 PM) : 

That's an amazing outfit. Congratulations to her if she canride in those heels.


Blogger knitlit kate said ... (4:37 PM) : 

j'adore the heels and the bag, but where is olivia's helmet? if anyone could wear a bike helmet and still look gorgeous, it's her!

p.s. hope she has a key in her birkin for that big lock...

I am glad others picked up on the "staged" feeling this picture has.

I love your site, more than anything I love the pictures you take of people who do not go out knowing you will take their picture but dress as they do because they love to do so.

That is what inspires me to be more creative in the way I dress.

I love her style...

I don't care what anyones says. Staged or not staged this is one beautiful photograph. And who cares if its cold when you are wearing such hot clothing!

great shot and beautiful girl :)

This is Olivia from that reality show "The City" on MTV. She's the one everyone loves to hate. This shot is definitely staged. I know for a fact that this girl would NOT be riding a bike.
So disappointed.

Olivia is stunning!

If only her TV personality was as lovely as her shoes. Shame.

Dear skeptics:

Riding a bike in heels is not only possible, but actually not terribly difficult. I've gotten around my college campus for two years now, biking in heels, with my much-less-splendid leather bookbag on one shoulder and my smaller purse on the other. It confuses most guys, but the good ones love it.

Is she really famous? London is way too cold right now to be wearing shorts... was she sporting goosebumps as well!?


Anonymous Rachel said ... (5:38 PM) : 

This leaves me breathless for two reasons.

1. Olivia is divine

2. Those heels & that bicycle looks more dangerous than riding without hands! (But maybe equally as fun!)


Blogger The Genetic Mule said ... (5:45 PM) : 

Olivia is a trendsetter so I wish she would be the first to buck the Frankenstein Shoe trend. This is surely a fashion phase that we will have to look back and laugh at. It is a beautiful shoe that belongs on a shelf. Not on a human woman. Shoes should not be visually heavier than a woman's entire upper body.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:55 PM) : 

She looks gorgeous, if improbable. I agree—she's definitely stealing that bike. Or maybe balancing against it so she doesn't fall off her shoes onto her luscious Birkin?


Blogger Couture and Crayons said ... (5:55 PM) : 

Style and skills. Love her.

I've no doubt it is possible to ride a bike in heels but this photo just looks so fake I can only roll my eyes. She's beautiful, yes, but I do not like this photo on this blog.

Obviously I'm in the minority.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:10 PM) : 

For someone who dresses with style The bike does let it all down, so ugly! And not step-through lady style, suggesting perhaps it's not hers... Cycling in heels is easier than it looks though those pedals would ruin her shoes. Also how is the bag staying on the back, no occy strap in sight...?

She should get a bike though, a sleek step-through with a basket, then we would all believe this.

Aww, you guys are bursting my bubble saying this shot is staged, and the girl isn't English! I was just thinking how great it was to see a UK photo more than holding it's own against the Milan, Paris and NYC shots!

But I see what you mean, and I guess that dirty lock isn't going in the Birkin when she unlocks it, right?!


Keep it real Scott! That's what we love...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:22 PM) : 

I would love to know if she really was cycling off on this bike. I do think it's possible despite the outfit but I think she looks very ill at ease with the bike so have my doubts. Amazing shoes. Beautiful bag.

so chic! love it
