  1. WOWOWOW. This is perfection. So much emotion & range. That photo where she’s crying is literally screaming at you. You can actually feel her pain.

    Just incredible.

    • No. This looks bratty and non-aesthetic. Grace, beauty, etc, should be higher priorities than emotional self-expression if fashion and style are the general purposes. Emotion can be wonderful, but it can also be self-indulgent.

      • “NO”? What do you mean “NO”?

        Its called an opinion, and dont try to sell yours as a fact.

        • I said no because you were wrong on two points of fact: the photo where she’s crying did not literally scream at me, and I did not “actually feel her pain.”

          Setting aside your factual error and turning to opinion, do you disagree with the idea that it is self-indulgent, in a fashion context, to prioritize emotional self-expression over grace and beauty?

            I am wrong on MY OPINIONS? Sure sure….

            I wont even justify my OPINIONS any further with you.

            By the same token, get over yourself, you sound like a pretentious ass.

  2. Emotional self-expression has value in the context of fashion and style only when accompanied by grace and beauty which are the higher priorities. This is not an anti-emotion position, nor even a matter of opinion really. Suppose Jacqueline Oloniceva had been photographed displaying her own innovative engineering blueprints, without grace or beauty and with an unattractive look on her face. That would have little value in the context of fashion and style, not because intellectual matters have no value in fashion but because whatever value they have comes after, not before, the higher priorities of grace and beauty.

  5. Also this is a portrait series, so it’s about her, right? Her attitude is part of her style in this.
