London calling

What’s not to love about this shot: there’s the framing and composition by Mr Newton, which has an odd sense of symmetry and harmony between the red handbag and red telephone booth, the greys of the dress and the silver of the armour on the poster next to it. There’s the gorgeous subject of the photo. And then there’s the ease with which a pinned-under bob translates to a street-style look. Who would have thought that such a retro, Betty Draper-esque style would marry so well with a pair of tough aviators?
