Languid Lanvin

I was looking at a mannequin pose from the 80s on an online acquaintance's Flickr post (a Janet Suzman from the Lazy Lizzie collection by Rootstein), and I loved the form's attitude so much that I used it as a reference for a fashion sketch. I wanted something equally languid but modern, so I sketched a runway look from Lanvin's Spring 2011 show. I'm happy with how it turned out - it's a loose version of how I used to paint in watercolor (done digitally here in Painter). Plus I needed a break from all that portrait painting I've been doing of late.
