kinga


On a street where everyone is vying to get discovered for their street style savvy, Kinga, from Hungary, stood out because she clearly wasn't trying. I met her at Pret a Manger near St. Martins College of Art. She's an absolutely delightful girl. I shoot in film & usually just do one or two shots & hope for the best. I took three, and then truly couldn't decide. Perhaps the one I left out was the best. I have no idea what she was wearing. It seemed immaterial to her, too: the essence of good style is just putting on whatever feels right, and then not giving it another thought.

She is absolutely stunning. I like the tan and the grey together. Cool leather jacket, and i like how it has the knit sleeves on the inner side.

I love this, she looks so effortless and cool (for want of a better word).

Fresh and effortless...love the photos and what she's wearing--whatever it is! The colors of her clothing are so soft and beautiful.

Isn't she a runway model?! She looks VERY familiar. Great shot, great outfit.

She's not - 'just' a sociology student. And very very nice. She looks so familiar to me, too. I don't know why. But I agree: great outfit, great look, and thanks re: the shot but Kinga really did all the work. She posed so naturally I could have sworn she was a model.

HI! I really like your pictures, and found this one absolutely stunning! You really found a perfect model for you, her beaty is so expressfull and has a really "easy" feel to it. I quoted the last line from your text in my (newly started) blog. Hope you don't mind, here's the link (summerblog.tumblr.com)
