    I could not breathe when this came up! I try to rock that look with these 3d glasses that I popped the lenses out of. I love the way she pulls it off with style and grace! Tres chic!

    I like the clothes, a lot actually. But those glasses made me bust out laughing. A little too “Roger Moore” pour la moi.

    Amazing photo. Love her skirt and stance; so uncompromising but shy!

    The layering and colour combination works really well, with the browns and reds and tan-gold reflecting in her hair.

    What’s with this trend of otherwise beautiful people wearing decidedly uncomplimentary eyeglasses? Is it a revolt to chic or a tribute to Terry Richardson?

    She’s beautiful, yes. However, I dislike the glasses, scarf, and jacket as they make her appear like every other hip young 20s. Despite the appearance of the glasses being daring and outrageous, you can find them on every 10th person’s face you walk by today. Same with the scarf. From the waste down though(hat, tights, skirt[and i'll include the turtleneck])and her perfect pixie cut- I’d say exquisite.

    Yes yes yes! Yes to the brocade, yes to the patterned wool jacket, and yes to that thin-striped scarf that so delicately balances out the patterns, textures, and weight of the other fabrics. That hat is just icing on the cake!

    The woman of my dreams! Her glasses are way sexy – and a brilliant move on her part b/c upon intitially viewing the photograph, the viewer’s eye is immediately drawn to her flawless face – which is undoubtedly the most perfect part of the day.

    I love the versatility of her look – It melds together perfectly, and if she wants to place down her sweater, she is still rocking the outfit.

    The glasses and the haircut are a homage to YSL!! They are ingenious and totally inspired and would’ve justified a feature. But then, the jacket, the scarf, the skirt and that hat. I’m positively drooling! This will be one of my all time favorites, for certain. Thank you very much, mr. Sart.

    Hmmm.

    I like this (said in a Simon Cowell-esque voice).

    Not sure why, but it somehow works.

    Though not sure how i would feel if she was actually wearing the hat…

    Love it. Not a haircut for most people but it works on her and I love when people can pull something off that the rest of the world just can’t do. I like the glasses too. From the neck up she’s a female YSL of the 1970′s.

    Now, as for the hat…. I’m glad it’s not on her head, I think it might put a flaw on an otherwise flawless look.

    As long as she actually needs glasses, I love those. But as an essentially blind person without my glasses, I hate it when people who don’t need glasses where them. And the trend bothers me a bit because if I didn’t need them, I wouldn’t wear them. Either way the rest of her look is fabulous and I would rock that any day.

    I like the whole outfit, very well done. But the glasses have got to go: I wear “nerd chic” glasses like those (been wearing them for years already) and whenever I see someone wear glasses like those, just for the sake of wearing them, it highly annoys me, especially since now nobody believes mine are prescription and think I’m falling into a trend.

    Imagine her without the glasses, something would be missing. I saw these former geek-glasses a lot lately and didn’t like them in the majority of cases. She has the right face though, it is not eclipsed by the glasses, but they make it interesting. So I admit in this case, they make the look!

    Also, I’m always grateful for girls, having short-hair-cuts. Not every girl should have short hair, but a lot of faces could be more unique and less boring.

    I checked the comments to see what the hub-bub about the glasses would be. On her, because she is young and gorgeous, everything looks wonderful. But for us people who wore those glasses in the 70′s-80′s, they just dont look good. I wore my big ol’ tortoise glasses because I thought I looked pretty and cool and that’s what people wore then. Now I cringe when I see pictures of myself. I guess I’ve turned into my Grandma who rolled her eyes when I went out and bought some cool retro 50′s cat-eye glasses that I thought were the bomb.

    This is why I love having a wardrobe of mostly neutrals, because you can keep playing with combining your stuff in new, interesting ways. She did a great job with the closeness of the color values, the textures & weights of fabrics (mostly thin)and last, the proportions which I think are near perfect.
    The glasses? Well, just because you can, doesn't mean you should…

    I don’t get the glasses either. Mostly because I had to wear adult glasses as a child (big fat head that I had) these merely take me to a traumatic place. Trauma isn’t interesting.

    The rest of her outfit, now, is fab through and through.

    It would be interesting to see her without the glasses. She certainly has a lovely face, and I think the glasses enhance it. For me they draw attention to her flawless complexion and sensual lips.

    I love that she is wearing no makeup and her hair has just a fantastic cut then becomes low-maintenance. Everything suits her perfectly.
