Garance In Her New Prada Shoes, Paris

I had a great laugh the other day in Paris. Garance had recently written a very tongue-in-cheek post about how to be shot by street style photographers.

Well, when she broke out her new Prada shoes (the ones that everyone wants but very few have), she fell into her own trap. It seemed that her every step was snapped by at least three photographers. Don't get me wrong, they weren't interested in her....just the shoes.

Do adore her shoes and she looks great from the back.

Blogger Amy said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Forget the shoes! (which happen to be in every single magazine right now) It's Garance!! I saw her in Paris a year and a half ago during fashion week because I happened to be traveling there, and I have never seen a more ravishing woman. This was only augmented by the fact that she was beyond kind and humble when I embarrassingly went up to her, paused her conversation with a friend, and confessed my adoration of her and her site. If I were the photographers, I'd be like-- "what? she was wearing shoes?" :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:16 PM) : 

This is just too hilarious...:))

They look beautiful!

(i really like that back pack too)


Blogger comme fraiche said ... (1:19 PM) : 

Those shoes are a camera magnet as your photo shows. I think Garance wanted to make sure her theory on being photographed was correct.

Those Prada shoes are simply AMAZING! I would have also been sitting on the pavement to get a good shot of them!

For the first time ever I got snapped by a street photographer in NYC last Friday. It was an oldish guy (maybe the one with the bike). I didn't look as good as Garance.


Blogger kathrynnova said ... (9:29 AM) : 

it seems that fashion blogging and street style photography has turned into one big huge prada ad campaign.
