It works so well on her. A single pearl earring glistening brightly. Why wear two, when one has such impact?Paired with the deep blue turban, the olive green cloak, the slightly parted rose pink lips and that wistful over-the-shoulder glance – she has a look that street style photographers would clamour to snap. Sadly for the image makers, hers is a portrait that cannot be caught through a mechanical lens.
The ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ was painted by Johannes Vermeer in 1665. Despite being created at a time when ‘cavalier’ style was in vogue, the aesthetic of Vermeer’s girl is pertinent to the fashion world this season…because the single earring is trending.
