Paris Fashion Week SS 2011....The Dress and The Braid


I'm not sure what I adore the most about this girl.....her cinched-at- the-waist dress, her gorgeous (very complex looking) braid, the grown-up, classic handbag or her espadrille wedges. Mostly I think it is a combination of everything.

  2. I can't wait until my hair grows longer so that I can do fishtail braids like this, my favorite! Her dress is exquisite too, I love the crepe paper look of it.

  3. @Elena- it is so pretty, isn't it. Although I think she would look amazing in pretty much anything :)

    @Lorena- oh golly, I think I would need an instruction manual to do this braid! It looks so complex- I used to have difficulties just plaiting my hair the "normal" way, let alone something like this. And yes, her dress does have a little crepe-papery feeling about it!

  12. I love the fishtail braid! @Vanessa, it's actually not as hard as it looks. There is a very comprehensible youtube video out there. And yes, the dress is amazing ;-)

  14. I love the fishtail braid! needs to be used more often. she pulls off that dress effortlessly, it could easily look silly on someone else.

  15. I adore her beauty. Her face, her body, her stance. But I think that beauty comes from within. And of course, it's a lovely dress, too. But I think you're right that she would look gorgeous in most anything.

  16. @everyone: hey everyone- thanks so much, I am really happy you like these photos! They are probably my favourite that I took during the men's fashion week in Paris :))

    @The Original Swedish Blonde, @Maya, @ richlilpoorgirl- you guys are great! So it is called a fishtail, fishbone braid??? I will have to google this youtube clip. @Maya- yep, I think you would have to be careful with what you were wearing- it could look slightly odd with the wrong outfit me thinks.

    @Agnes Szucs- correct! Beauty does come from within and isn't necessarily conventional. Some of the favourite girls I have photographed and/or want to photograph have sticky-outy ears, gaps in their teeth, large noses etc. I love that beauty can come in all different forms, ages, races etc.

  17. Ahhh wow the fishtail braid is so pretty. This makes me think twice about cutting my hair short recently. But then again it looks waayyyy too complex for me to master.

    Anddd pretty pictures as always :)

  25. These pictures were posted over two years ago but I just can't help commenting on it!
    Everything about them is just so beautiful!

    This girl is absolutely gorgeous and she looks amazing in that textured looking dress. I love the way it drapes around her. It looks stiff but soft at the same time, like a piece of paper that's been wrinkled and crumbled in a ball before being smoothed out again.
    Somehow, it just hangs so elegantly and create such a pretty shape.
    Adding on to that is the amazing fishtail braid (tied with a simple hair tie), that very classy bag, and those funky espadrilles!

    Love love looooove <3
