Pants: Margiela for H&M
Street Beauty: Andreea Diaconu @IMGModels between castings and fittings in Midtown. Wearing Isabel Marant and J.Crew.
It’s a bit hard to shoot street style in the winter - people are just trying not to freeze and bundled in scarves but Andreea still glows (and her hair is covered up!) She has a solo editorial in the current Vogue Paris.
Happy Woman in Greenwich Village
I photographed this woman today. I really liked her hat and sunglasses but her signature leopard fur coat is great for the winter. I was a bit hesitant to ask but she was quiet happy once I said so and said it was the first time someone told her they liked her outfit on the street. : ) I am blanking at her name at the moment, I feel bad. Maybe Donna or something like that. But her son is going to email me and I’ll email her a photo and/or send her a print. I wanted to take a close up photo of her face but she said no. I think she looks amazing! And that smile makes everything 100 times better! This is around Thomas or Sullivan Street and Bleecker. She’s live in New York City but not Greenwich Village.

Eva Chen (@evachen212) “editor, writer, shopper, new yorker” on Astor Place this afternoon (night!)
It is getting cold in New York! I just did some errands today and some street style snapshots. Luckily I bumped into Eva Chen! She looks cool as usual! I swear she was just in California! Such a busy lady! But super nice.
Eva is wearing a hat from New Zealand (possum fur! hehe), jacket from Topshop, vest from Adam, a sweater from Zara mens, pants from Phillip Lim, and shoes from Isabel Marant! Her bag is Hermes of course.
I just realized I didn’t ask her anything about beauty which is one of her specialties - I’ll just focus on style for now : ) I am quite simple and like to wear black but I usually wear the same three pieces. I like the different textures Eva is wearing - she looks pretty hardcore but still super cute : ) I think it’s a perfect balance of wearing layers and New York black in the cold weather but still being super utilizable.
I just learned Eva is now freelance at Teen Vogue and Elaine Welteroth is the new Health and Beauty editor! Eva is now running all over town all the time! I kept on thinking she had just gotten off work but it was only 4/5 pm and it’s just getting quiet dark in New York now. She will probably receieve this tweet/tumblr notification before she gest home : )
Anyway Eva is a great editor and she has her own tumblr of course where you can ask her beauty, health, and fashion related questions! http://evachen212.tumblr.com/ (also linked above)
I shot her once during NYFW as well. I have yet to post that photo. I was just too excited about this one and it fits the new cold weather now. I wanted to keep photographs from Sandy at the top of my blog for a while because that is important in life as well — here’s a link to it.
Thanks so much Eva! Hope you can reblog this!
PS: This post went WAY longer than expected! I’m seeing Carine Roitfeld talk at the FIAF tonight! Sold out but there should be some standby tickets as well. Can’t wait! X
Outside of Alexander Wang FW12. A lot of people took her photograph. She was identified in one of the blogs, I forget her name but she is a new stylist or editor from China or something along the lines of that. She is so well put together without trying to hard - perfectly chic. I saw her in Soho the other day!
Update it’s Mega Meng Meng. Thanks.
Looking good on Union Square.
What material is her jacket?
After Karen Walker - This was a very common look around NYFW FW12 - fur collar or coat, a bright piece, a print, maybe mix in something sporty. Layers. Can anyone identify her and what she is wearing?
