    She looks fantastic! Great material on the skirt. And the colours are carried through and blended without making them look too much. Fab shoes, jacket, belt, bag…

    Best of all, she looks super-stylish while looking very comfortable and relaxed (emphasised by the detached expression on her face and her pose).

    i’m a bit ambivalent about the strong 80s silhouettes running through virtually every show this season, but she does this look quite well. a strong shoulder, fitted pencil skirt and plenty of saturated colors. my favorite part of her entire outfit is her belt – it’s a very innovative way to wear it.

    March 19, 2009 at 11:34 am

    Beautiful!
    all that blues and deep red with the structured black and gold details (the shoe, the belt!, and the bag).
    A beautiful eccentric style..

  26. Debbi

    Love the way the different blues and the different textures (shiny shirt and skirt, nubby jacket) work together. The belt is amazing!

    this is the first photo that has made me gasp out loud upon the page opening. i think the tights are a little much, but maybe the boldness of all of that blue is what really makes this outfit stand out.
    and i’ll ring along with the other commenters about that belt. d-i-e.

    I saw this photo on style.com and I loved it so much I wondered why you didn’t post it here…guess we were thinking the same thing.

    I’m an avid black lover, but it’s wonderful to see a woman playing with a different color palette. It’s eye-catching even if subdued. Also, her play with various textures, shapes, and proportions is quite nice.

  33. junglesiren

    That midnight blue is great on everyone. This skirt is fun. Weird that it has pockets but I do love them. The belt is interesting. I’ve never seen anything like it although Donna Karan did some stuff a few seasons ago that had hardware that was similar.

    I’m not a big Chanel maniac and never really loved the ubiquitous chain, quilted purses or those jackets. I don’t love this jacket (whether it’s Chanel or Forever 21 – not being an aficionado I really can’t tell) but this girl is so sexy and her rockin’ savoir-faire keeps it from looking so Chanel precious.

    It all works…but what is really hot here, is the woman. You don’t know if she’s gonna kiss you or sock you in the nose.

    so good! everything’s perfect – the colours, the textures the proportions, the accessories – i agree with Jack Daniel the belt is awesome – and the best thing is with her casual assuredness she makes it look effortless. I want to be a Parisienne too….

    in my opinion it looks abit abstract in a good way. I love the way she made her skirt it presented.

  43. travelbug

    March 19, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    What first pops are the contrasting shades of blue. I have to get used to it…

    Why are her shoes cut off? They look like they might hold the whole look together.

    My second big thought is that the proportion of the outfit is wrong for HER proportions. She’s long-waisted and everything she’s wearing accentuates that. The camera angle and cropping might be doing that too.

    But the deconstructed Chanel theme IS cool.

    6/10 a bit matchy matchy. the jacket itself looks great. muted flagrance. would’ve been nice for it to be the star, as it looks a bit lost paired with similar palettes.

    What I like is that its somehow a great mix of refined yet edgier/funner: the belt is whimsical; the shoes are badass; the combination of textures and colors is anything but staid; the hair is loose and wild.

    Its how I would dress for a business meeting if I thought I could get away with it. Maybe I will one day…
