The image seduces, in the first instance, by its color, but actually shows countless striking elements that together produce a great effect.

We have the old car, in contrast to the implicit attitude and quirky wardrobe message model. It seems obvious that the photographer did not intend to show an androgynous character, but a sexy woman whose sensuality, paradoxically, is accented with supposedly "male" elements like mustache (arched, flirty), the bow tie and jacket leaves glimpse a regular underwear, which is not properly lingerie. Black stockings held by suspenders, covered, in turn, by nylons, which could mean a message related to the essential and primary power of femininity. This ambivalence in the image contrasts (old / new, masculine / feminine, sensuality / modesty) offer more than just a powerful visual effect: a message about the power of the occult, of suggested, as in the real life, where what really matters is not visible in the immediate.

The photo is perfect in terms of framing and lighting, with particular focus on the expression of the model. Magnificent use of lights. A photo worked from the stage.

Please, excuse my bad English.

Everything is wonderful, just the color of the shoes bothers me. If they were red it would be perfect!

when you can't see somebody face to face on a conversation is hard to know when you are being sarcastic or not. i love sarcams so i usually use sarcasm tags as <sarcasm>sarcastic comment</sarcasm>

Sarcasm isn't funny if you state it bluntly :D
That's why sarcasm works, 'cause it's usually subtle.
