Glamorous Girl - Just off
I run into this young lady here on the Rue Saint-Honoré while coming from Colette for some 'retail therapy' - more like getting deeper into debt - and she informed me that she had just arrived in Paris that morning of the fourth of March on her way to the shows but graciously agreed to pose for me and off she went.
"New Yorker," she later informed me but I already knew that even before she opened her mouth. There's something about New Yorkers that instantly catches my eye - all thanks to The Photodiarist. Now I can spot a New Yorker a mile away - the big hat, the big black shades, the red lipstick...the 'all-black everything' capital of the world. It's that simple.
