    Such elegance for daytime. Are the slacks part of a jumpsuit? The trend is the blouse this season. This look connotes elegant modesty.

    The perfect harmony in colours shows class. The back ends of the belt show originality.
    Althought you cannot see the shoes, good choice the very high heels, elongate the body.
    Pitty about the cigarette – smoking is not trendy anymore, huh?

    omg at first it looked a bit awkward cause I am in Turkey and it's night right now in here :) But the truth is the blouse is really beautiful and also such a beautiful picture that the contrast of the taxi's colour and the lady's clothes makes the photo more beautiful:)

    The muted powdery colours just look wonderful together. She looks a bit frail holding on to the taxi and the cigarette… It must be the exhaustion from too many shows.

    Dear Sartorialist:

    Thanks to your photographer's eye and composition, you could shoot anyone on the street and everyone writes, "I love it!" and "Beautiful!" Are they talking about the picture or the subject?

    All I see here is stooped posture and a sad nicotine habit. (In Europe and Asia and in other eras, a cigarette can add a stylish touch, but in modern North America, especially in glaring sunlight, it seems even sadder.)

    Her flowing outfit could work on a body with the right posture, carriage, and attitude. This woman needs clothing with more structure and crispness.

    just finish that smoke before you get in!

    she does look amazing. i'm loving this re-visiting of 70s business woman glamour that's happening right now. and the spring 2011 runways were filled with 70s inspired clothing. love it.

    I have to agree with other commentors that other than the smoke, everything else is really nice.

    I really don't think a huge cloud of smoke coming out from a nose is sexy in any way…it just looks like her nose is burning up.

    Comments about smoking range from dull to arrogant.

    No one cares about your boring judgments toward smoking. my opinion, based on aesthetics, is that its a nice photo, her outfit is good and the smoke adds to it.

    @ YogaSpy: Everyone comes from different cultures, different cities, different fashion lifestyles, or many encounter anti-fashion every single day…

    Not all people reside in New York, or in Italy where you see "sprezzatura" and Italian men style at their best…

    So many people may come for the first time on Mr Sartorialist's blog and they can sum up the outfits presented in one single word, than just over-analyze everything.

    Dear Sart–
    Please do not be put off taking shots of subjects smoking/holding cigarettes.
    As a former smoker I find it disgusting, but it's not your job to sanitize the scene.
    If that's what you capture, you have simply chronicled reality.

    I agree with everyone who says that the anti-smoking comments are tedious and redundant. It's just a cigarette, for God's sake.

    Amazing how people who do things like drive gas-guzzling SUVs or eat themselves into a stupor on processed foods have the gall to comment on the health risks or pollution surrounding second-hand smoke. Seriously?

    Anyway, back to the outfit – I love this look. Reminds me of Katharine Hepburn.

    Enough of the cigarette lectures people, it makes you sound like this woman's mother. There's nothing worse than hypocrites who yell at everyone else for smoking and then refuse to look at their own slovenly, bad habits.

    Gorgeous picture-this woman cuts a striking figure propped up against the taxi. The muted colors add to the elongation of her body. The smoke is suspended in mid-air, adding an ethereal element.
