The shoes with taht asimettric paltform are amazing!


Blogger Unknown said ... (9:12 AM) : 

What a great red shade for autumnal outfits and the shirt dress is an absolutely great piece and the way she combines it with the greyish tights is fashion advanced. love, FashionLifeCoach

lovely red shoes
the whole outfit is amazing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 AM) : 

the red shoes!!!!


Blogger Lauren said ... (9:18 AM) : 

Both of these women have such poise. I love both of their outfits but especially the woman in red - she looks utterly original. Who matches their makeup to their red dress? On paper it wouldn't seem to work, but she has the elegance to carry it off. Beautiful.

Lovely picture. I love the way her coat and shoes pick up the red of the London bus. Was that strategically placed Scott?

Vita and Virginia! Brunettes wear red so perfectly.


Anonymous Key said ... (9:59 AM) : 

Gorgeous, stylish women! I wonder what is beneath the raincoat?

To Lauren who asked "Who matches their makeup to their red dress?"... well, it's not a new concept, I've been doing it all my life.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:59 AM) : 

Relaxed, yet striking.


Blogger Angel said ... (10:14 AM) : 

I love those Gray Textured tights.. and over the red. My love for hosiery and tights on women go way back, not sure why, but I think its so feminine. Very nice find.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 AM) : 

love that grey hat, how very Kramer vs Kramer; autumnal ladies, love it x


Blogger Susannah said ... (10:19 AM) : 

She looks like a ballet dancer minus the over-developed calf muscles and turnout. Beautiful!


Blogger rere said ... (10:22 AM) : 

I don't think the red is a dress. it looks more like pants looking at the hemline, Which would be even more amazing.


Blogger rere said ... (10:23 AM) : 

I think the red is a pants jumpsuit not a dress, but still amazing.


Anonymous argone said ... (10:24 AM) : 

Très élégantes ladies ... j'adore le chapeau.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:41 AM) : 

Love these young women and their unique style. Everything but the bags. Macrame?!? And the black or grey whatever-it-is. But I love the clothes, colors, and shoes although most of all the women themselves.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 AM) : 

sandals with tights... I will never understand/like it. It's all over these days. What do you think?


Blogger Noumia's papers said ... (10:45 AM) :

Looking a bit gaunt, but what an exquisite hat!



Blogger Unknown said ... (10:58 AM) : 

I'm trying to figure out where on the strand this is as i can't picture any trees on the strand. The only place would be towards Aldwych but then the church isn't in the background.


Blogger said ... (10:59 AM) : 

love the simplicity of it all played up by their still understated accessories.

these girls need some jewelry from Rossmore!


Anonymous The Photodiarist said ... (11:01 AM) : 

The red dress, red shoes AND red lipstick! OUTSTANDING.

Wonderful what a splash of warm color can do for an ensemble.

Stylin out!


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (11:19 AM) : 

macrame bag 1969

mushroom hat 1970

longer skirt lengths and slight platforms thicker heels 1972, 1973.

envelope bag, silk blouse, mini and trench, ealy 80's.

the only item whcih fast forwards it to 2010 is the nude beige cropped ankle boot.

Yes the red dress is of course is a bold colour, though it has a really soft cozy impression with the great tights & macrame purse.

Love the suede shoes.

I love the composition of the photo, the big blob of green behind them, the red of the bus complementing the red of the dress. I like the women in tan better.

That red dress and those shoes are KILLING me with their cuteness.

Love the curly hair on both women. Those red shoes with the grey tights--LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!


Blogger kukla said ... (3:08 PM) : 

Yesss, to the woman in red. So theatrical but not silly and somewhat modern. I love when women embrace nostalgia in the current interpretation. I can't. I just follow Celine like a herd animal:)


Blogger Bianca Le Mouel said ... (3:25 PM) : 

The woman in red is gorgeous! She is exactly what I want to look like and she doesn't have the "it" anything!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 PM) : 

Today I'm settling for this shot.

I'm having a day when I can't seem to get inspired by anything. I like the calm, reassuring, uncomplicated looks of these ladies. I'm in the mood for it.

What an immense contrast with the M. Jacobs shots.

It's not that I don't like that new collection, but when I think of all the stress that went into it: 'it's got to be this, it's got to be that and most of all, it's got to be done in time!' I just get tired thinking about it. It's a tour de force and the comment 'Marc does it again' is appropriate.

But, like I said, I'm just not in the mood for it.

I'll settle for these English dames, a pipe, a fire and a detective story right now.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:06 PM) : 

Rust is such a great fall colour works wonderful with the dark grey tights. I hope she wears matching manicure too, either grey or rust


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:08 PM) : 

The shoes are the only clue to the present era. The shoes are a dead give away - its 2010.


Anonymous Sian said ... (4:12 PM) : 

Great red outfit indeed but I find the red/orange eye make-up a little too much. And orange eyeshadow always make you look like you were just crying your eyes out.


Anonymous Dana said ... (4:16 PM) : 

That gorgeous woman again! I love her red outfit. She's gorg.

Great picture! I'd love to see some detail of the make up the lady in red is wearing and the lady in beige, I've never seen someone wear accesories so gracefully! Well done!

WOW, everything about these two is beautiful and aesthetically correct!

Both look incredible - and the outfits compliment each other so well. Tamara (in the hat) is an incredible stylist, so I'm not surprised to see her looking so chic. A masterclass!

What great composition. Both ladies look so beautiful and classic, and their outfits compliment each other so well. Tamara (in the hat) is an incredible stylist, so I'm not surprised to see her looking so effortlessly chic. A masterclass!

looking at this photo seems to take me back in time. they both look so beautiful.

The Lady in red is Valentina Ilardi Martin, the editor in chief of amazing GREY Magazine,


Blogger Diana said ... (11:54 AM) : 

Love the knitted tights with the chunky shoes, and the color combination is gorgeous!
I'm trying to decide how I feel about the macrame bag...Part of me feels like the contrast makes it interesting, and part of me feels like it just doesn't click. I wonder if a leather satchel-type bag, or traditional purse would sit better with the rest of the look.
Overall - both women look stunning and totally original.

Lovely picture. I love the woman dress on red because she resembles a quite unique sophisticated look. She carried the dress perfectly. I also envy the shoes that the girl (with the raincoat)is wearing, quite an impressive fashion sense of style.
