My first thought was, you might be disappointed with the paucity of pictures herewith. My second thought revealed another aspect of these photographs I didn’t realize at the time.
More than any other of my weekly collections showing women sauntering or running down the streets of Paris or the village near our house, these three show such distinctly different personal styles that it makes them, to my eye at least, immensely interesting.
I see these women quite often, and the pictures truly do reflect their personalities. One is always in flowy, dresses and tops; the other more “strict” and close to the body, very often poured into her jeans; and the third, an artist, dresses with a child-like whimsy.
Their vestment choices vary only with the fabrics as the seasons change, not with the shapes. Oh yes, and the shoes — rarely a toe in sight after October.
The blue nail polish is on the toes of a young woman who just passes under the 40-year-old cut- off bar set by the creative director of makeup at Guerlain (see Tuesday’s post — July 20th) who suggests that after that age one should eschew blues, greens and other colorful flights of fancy in favor of a rich ruby.
