love the way she’s wearing the scarve with the coat…. really modern.
February 18, 2009 at 9:18 am
I love it..Scarf tucked in to the belt loop of her Trench, smart & chic!
February 18, 2009 at 9:22 am
ooh – love the drama of the scarf and the navy/white and browns combination.
February 18, 2009 at 9:23 am
Completely fabulous! this instantly brought a smile to my face. the hat has panache and makes the whole outfit. Great photo, Sart!
February 18, 2009 at 9:29 am
i never would have imagined the proportion of that huge scarf on her tiny frame working yet, it’s impeccable.
February 18, 2009 at 9:31 am
her scarf is perfectly placed. the hat completes this very city- chic look.
Your pictures are better when you take them in NYC. Don’t know why that might be.
Maybe the light, maybe you know the place beter, maybe you are happier at home…

It’s catch our attention!
I really like!

Who is she? She looks JUST like my Parisian friend who’s visiting New York? Though she mostly wears black.This is lovely!
February 18, 2009 at 9:43 am
i wish i could see more of the coat but wow what a scarf. love the trench belt tied over the scarf.
February 18, 2009 at 9:49 am
It’s all about proportions. She’s petite and she’s accentuated that with the bulk of her accessories. I love that hat. Very elegant and mysterious at the same time.
February 18, 2009 at 9:51 am
This one may be your best NYC photo ever.
It’s because of the way the person is captured in this photo. Not JUST because of her (beautiful!) outfit.
I like this one. I think you should make more ‘moving’ / ‘action’ photo’s just be one step ahead of all the other million Sartorialist-related-blogs. (Of course, I’m not telling you what you should do….just an idea!! :))
Keep up the good work.
February 18, 2009 at 10:03 am
She looks terrific! Seriously!! Fantastic choice…Her hat and the huge scarf, the lovely trench with the high heels…she matches but it looks natural…great job.X
February 18, 2009 at 10:04 am
Wow, I’m always afraid to pair a hat with a big scarf, but this looks amazing. She totally pulls it off, and I love the scarf tucked into the belt – genius.
February 18, 2009 at 10:06 am
Fantastic colours and textures… I do, however, think the pieces overwhelm the lady.

I am inspired.

February 18, 2009 at 10:20 am
Huaaauuhhuuu!!! That’s style!
February 18, 2009 at 10:22 am
Definitely one of your best photos ever. The oversized scarf works on her small frame (probably because it is tucked into the belt and therefore conforms to her body) and the hat covering her eyes is just downright sexy! I think I’m in love…
February 18, 2009 at 10:23 am
This is one of the most fantastic outfits I have seen in a long while, she’s like a sexy, alluring, spy!
February 18, 2009 at 10:31 am
She rocks it so beautifully. Love her shoes!
February 18, 2009 at 10:32 am
wow…that’s a woman who knows what she’s doing. It doesn’t get any better this. well done!
that’s a lovely scarf- really makes the outfit
February 18, 2009 at 10:41 am
Surreal – I <3 all, the combination of cloth, colors.. the gaze shaded by the hat's shadow..the indigo leaves on the scarf..the voulmes..and again the motion & the dynamic feeling within
February 18, 2009 at 10:58 am
Wonderful scarf. These things can be found only in NYC, maybe this is the reason why the photos looks better when taken in the city!
wow… very chic!
February 18, 2009 at 10:59 am
it looks so stylish!huge scarf, and caramel colored trench – fits good!
February 18, 2009 at 11:00 am
ABSOLUTELY STUNNING!I love it.
February 18, 2009 at 11:14 am
She is so petite like a smaller Audrey Hepburn. It is hard to tell if her feet and waist are exceptionally small, her hat and scarf are exceptionally huge or all of the above. She does look smart though!
February 18, 2009 at 11:32 am
This look seems like it’d be hard to pull off, but my goodness does she do a remarkable job! The hat and scarf are giant in proportion to the rest of her body. It would be neat to see this outfit with a slimmer-fitting pair of pants to really accentuate the comical-but-charming oversized proportions of the hat and scarf.
February 18, 2009 at 11:39 am
Very well put together.
February 18, 2009 at 11:43 am
I never knew navy and brown could go so well together, they complement eachother alot in this outfit.
February 18, 2009 at 11:44 am
I love love this. I would love to have this ensemble for myself. Beautiful shot!
February 18, 2009 at 11:54 am
It shouldn’t work, but it certainly does. She can really pull it off.
February 18, 2009 at 12:04 pm
February 18, 2009 at 12:11 pm
Well, I actually think she’s overwhelmed by the scarf in particular. Not so much the size, but the pattern. And the hat doesn’t help either. As a small woman, I find this slightly cautionary!
Hadley Gets Crafty
February 18, 2009 at 12:17 pm
Oh, how I want that scarf!
I have the hardest time finding hats of that sort. She’s one of the few women who looks stellar in a hat taller than her face.
February 18, 2009 at 12:22 pm
i think i need to move to new york…sigh
February 18, 2009 at 12:25 pm
February 18, 2009 at 12:26 pm
Very harmonious colour combination and lovely scarf.
February 18, 2009 at 12:31 pm
wow. amazing photograph sart, theres so much motion and power in it. plus, that is one incredible scarf.
HOT DAMN! That woman looks good.
Is this that lady who wore the great green leather jacket a while back?
February 18, 2009 at 12:34 pm
February 18, 2009 at 12:37 pm
Great scarf,i think all focus on it and Fedora hat.
February 18, 2009 at 12:48 pm
perfect. gorgeous. amazing. her hat, her boots, her scarf and the way she wears it. really cool!
February 18, 2009 at 12:50 pm
I have to disagree with most of your writers. Did she just escape from the upholstery shop? She is dwarfed by the amount of fabric, the huge print, and the oversized hat. I don’t think it works at all.
February 18, 2009 at 12:54 pm
I love the movement in this photo.
February 18, 2009 at 1:02 pm
She’s WEARIN’ that hat, baby!
February 18, 2009 at 1:13 pm
God, that is glooooorious.
February 18, 2009 at 1:14 pm
WoW…love everything about this pic, specially the proportion and the movement!
February 18, 2009 at 1:25 pm
Waou waou waou!
February 18, 2009 at 1:27 pm
ahhh….. this outfit is to die for! i want it so bad, i just love how she paired the scarf with the jacket, so very modern. love this pic too.
February 18, 2009 at 1:47 pm
dont love the baggy pantsbut i love the oversized scarfpractical and cute
February 18, 2009 at 1:50 pm
Not sure it fits the category of scarf or throw, but I’m with everybody else—it’s mighty fabulous. I’d look twice, three times, and tell her she looks smashing.
February 18, 2009 at 2:01 pm
She knows how to wear a hat. It’s situated atop her head just right. She knows how to wear a scarf. That humungus swath of fabric is wrapped and cinched with the belt just perfectly. The colors look great, the shoes look great. She must’ve looked in the mirror before leaving and cooly and confidently thought, oh yes, this works.
February 18, 2009 at 2:16 pm
Navy is such an under-rated color on women. I’ll take it over black any day.

February 18, 2009 at 3:03 pm
somewhat towelesque but fabulous! Great shot
February 18, 2009 at 3:15 pm
Aside from the utter chicness of the woman, the light in this photo is fantastic. Well done.
February 18, 2009 at 3:24 pm
the scarf is hot like fire…
February 18, 2009 at 3:26 pm
Love the proportions! The hat gives her sass!!
February 18, 2009 at 3:33 pm
The hat combined with the giant scarf is just perfect.
February 18, 2009 at 3:39 pm
February 18, 2009 at 3:44 pm
that looks like an awesome big warm scarf
February 18, 2009 at 3:52 pm
on paper, i would mock you for over-accessorizing.. in motion, this is surprisingly effortless and fresh.
February 18, 2009 at 3:58 pm
May hats be coming back as seriously as the big scarves have already done!
February 18, 2009 at 3:59 pm
February 18, 2009 at 4:08 pm
wow! it’s just perfect!
February 18, 2009 at 4:12 pm
I would love to see the pants without the coat covering half of them. They look very interesting. I love the overall outfit, but it works so well because of her petite figure. The contrast with the huge scarf and the small waist are eye catching
February 18, 2009 at 4:22 pm
That is absolutely gorgeous from head to toe, the oversized scarf tucked in the trench, the hat, the pants, the boots, just amazing!
February 18, 2009 at 4:34 pm
So beautiful outfit! It’s simple but well mixed!! Gorgeous!
And i love the hat!
February 18, 2009 at 4:59 pm
the milk chocolate hat and beautiful large floral redefines how casual can truly be fabulous.
February 18, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Stunning – I love it all. The hat, the neatness of the jacket, the wide cut pants, the boots and THAT SCARF!!! the colours and proportions are so great.
February 18, 2009 at 5:58 pm
I would wear this in a hearbeat!
February 18, 2009 at 6:02 pm
Oooohh! Aaaaaahhh! Very nice! Lovely combo indeed!!
February 18, 2009 at 6:24 pm
THAT IS ME!!! i didn’t even see you taking my pic!!!
kidding. i just WISH i had that outfit.
February 18, 2009 at 6:29 pm
What a beautiful woman, not to mention original in her taste (while still being tasteful). The hat and shoes are especially stunning, though I love the scarf and coat as well. They make for a fantastic shape.
February 18, 2009 at 6:36 pm
February 18, 2009 at 7:20 pm
I like it. A lot.
It IS oversized but somehow it works and that’s all part of the charm. It’s one of those photos you can look at over and over. The muted tones of that very tailored trench, the pattern on that lovely, billowy blanket of a scarf.
Most of all, I love her face – the shadow of the brim covering her eyes.
She’s like a modern Girl Friday with Bogart in her wake.
February 18, 2009 at 7:21 pm
Wonderful, really. The weight of the large bag keeps the top half – the hat and huge scarf – from being top heavy. Very, very nice.
February 18, 2009 at 7:34 pm
oh man. Wow, so great.
DAMN I love it.

February 18, 2009 at 8:03 pm
wow! she looks fabulous! i love the hat, scarf and shoes–this is a case of the accessories making the outfit (or what i can see of it anyway).
February 18, 2009 at 8:32 pm
Now that’s style. That scarf is perfect and a very nice touch tucked into the belt. The dark wide pants and dark shoes are perfect. Also just a great shot with the shadows beneath her.
February 18, 2009 at 8:47 pm
so far the most impressive image i’ve seen of someone in nyc.

February 18, 2009 at 8:50 pm
Stunning!and i love that she tucks in her scarf to avoid the wind–thats a great idea.
February 18, 2009 at 9:09 pm
she’s like a fashion forward..
February 18, 2009 at 9:13 pm
Is this the lady Julie Ragolia that you shot in May 2008?
February 18, 2009 at 9:15 pm
that hat is fantastically perfect! it’s hard to rock the brown shoe/navy pant combo without looking dowdy, but that scarf sure did the trick!
February 18, 2009 at 9:29 pm
This is all about shape!,It reminds me some japanesse influencers!, the pants, or what can i see about the pants are great!
look out for the giant scarf attack
February 18, 2009 at 9:41 pm
There’s a pretty girl somewhere under all that scarf. Sorry, I see the scarf. Then I see the girl. She probably had to tuck it into her belt so the wind wouldn’t catch it and blow her away.
February 18, 2009 at 10:00 pm
I love this look! The accessories (hat and scarf) definitely take this look to the next level!
February 18, 2009 at 10:03 pm
What a great shot; I love the movement. I don’t remember where I first saw the trick of tucking scarves into belts, but it has the ability to make an outfit really different and special!

February 18, 2009 at 11:13 pm
i’m wondering if maybe the ‘scarf’ is actually a blanket? it looks maybe just large and bulky enough…but it’s PERFECT, whatever it is. i love this chick.
February 18, 2009 at 11:15 pm
Oh I loveeeeeeee this look…..
February 18, 2009 at 11:46 pm
she looks like Boccioni’s sculpture
February 19, 2009 at 12:08 am
I’m completely besotted by that scarf!!
February 19, 2009 at 12:25 am
i just love this. love it! she looks so chic and feminine without looking as if she is trying too hard or wants to be a barbie. the essence of cool.
February 19, 2009 at 1:37 am
I LOVE IT!
I want those shoes and I wish I could wear that hat!
Her scarf is the size of my blanket, my goodness she carries it very well. Elizabeth.
February 19, 2009 at 1:44 am
oh, beautiful – one of my faves ever. Incredible silhouette, from *that* hat to the boots. And then, after you recover from the chicness of it all, you look closer and HOW GORGEOUS IS HER FACE!! Love it – especially in motion.
February 19, 2009 at 2:10 am
I loove this. Seeing a petite woman striding out and making a statement is marvellous. As a small woman I am so afraid with fashion – cautious that I will look like I am playing dress ups in my mother’s wardrobe, worried about how everything seems to “hang” rather that “fit”. Yay her.
February 19, 2009 at 2:31 am
nice but…cant you post those pics of teen vogue-sarah kuhn from style.com? love, love, LOVE her looks.
February 19, 2009 at 3:14 am

i love this look very much! very nice!!
February 19, 2009 at 4:05 am
love the way she’s wearing the scarve with the coat!!!! :)
February 19, 2009 at 4:19 am
this is actually something that i would wear, believe it or not. I love the way she has worn quite neutral colours, it works really well for the winter in NYC.
i cant wait to visit there to see all the fashions.
February 19, 2009 at 5:25 am
Nice Post. Thanks for sharing and keep posting more new info.

February 19, 2009 at 7:12 am
Hmm. That ain’t a scarf it is a freakin’ blanket. LOVE the shoes though.
February 19, 2009 at 7:37 am
once again i thought what an incredible talented photographer (manual and artistic) you are.i love your site not only for the stylisch people you find but also for the stylisch way of showing them in the right spot.thank you.
February 19, 2009 at 8:03 am
i totally agree with Jack Daniel: your photographs look best when there is ‘movement’ in them. that really makes the difference.this picture is awesome. it’s full of life.
February 19, 2009 at 8:21 am
February 19, 2009 at 10:59 am
She and the clothes are beautiful, but I think she’s a bit petite to carry off such a voluminous scarf. I love the colours together, and she has a gorgeous face.
February 19, 2009 at 11:31 am
This is an AMAZING shot!
February 19, 2009 at 11:34 am
I’m still trying to figure out how large that scarf really is. A blanket perhaps?
February 19, 2009 at 11:40 am
nope… too much.. i love the scarf,i love the shoes, the trousers… but it´s too much. first: the hat should go. that would do wonders. also, i think she looks too slefcouncious. it´s as of she´s looking for feedback, and that reflects in her outfit.. too much. but one thing, sart: i don´t like these staged photos of yours. shoot real people, come on! not semi interesting norwegian models, like the other day. please!!!!!
February 19, 2009 at 2:00 pm
Inspiring. This outfit had my mind reeling of how I can recreate it with my own wardrobe. She looks so elegant and has that je ne sais quoi that is so hard to achieve. Incredible. Beautiful shot too..perfect motion to capture the feel of the outfit.
February 19, 2009 at 2:18 pm
sieht fantastisch aus, looks fantastic…

February 19, 2009 at 9:30 pm
an iconic modern image, perfection of shape + light + shadow + colour. i shan’t forget it soon.
magnifique, sir; i tip my hat to you.
February 19, 2009 at 10:05 pm
She look so smart girl…I love the scarf,and that hat is so fab on her..She looks great on her outfit..Nice post..=)Hope to see you on mine too.
February 19, 2009 at 10:15 pm
she owns this so well. the brown hat is hard to pull off she does it marvelously.
the volume at the top and bottom oh her silhouette just accentuate her small waist.
February 19, 2009 at 10:51 pm
this scarf is amazing. who is it by? i want one!

really like the combination of the scarf and coat. the hat is very cool- she’s got that “don’t mess with me” attitude goin’ on…
February 20, 2009 at 2:21 pm
This is so dramatic. Like shot out of a Frank Miller movie or a scene from Dick Tracy. Bold indeed!
February 20, 2009 at 5:44 pm
If you want a scarf like that I know where you can get one. Off of the back of your grandmothers rocking chair. It’s called an aphgan!

Great photo!!! My question….is this just some random New Yorker? It looks great and her fashion is incredible. Love the suede fedora with the vintage rose colored jacket. Very soft and romantic colors. Very in right now. Great photo again!!! XOXOhttp://www.ahauteaparty.blogspot.com
February 21, 2009 at 11:58 pm
Beyond description! Everything is so put together. The look is flawless. One of my top ten Sartorialist looks ever!

Wow, so chic, she is literally creating style.

lovely! beautiful photo, and a classic emsemble that looks fresh and smart. I love the scarf!!!
February 23, 2009 at 1:55 am
this has to be the hottest woman ever……some women just have an air about them….they can pull off anything….this woman is getting away with alot and it’s sexy.
March 1, 2009 at 3:20 pm
wow, i really love that scarf, and those shoes, and that hat. I’d like to look so great myself!
March 2, 2009 at 4:34 pm
i love the sense of movement in this photo.
March 3, 2009 at 2:39 pm
Scott, this is a masterpiece.
March 8, 2009 at 5:43 am
Love the way she’s wearing the hat! In a time when alot of people are wearing the trilby off the face, she looks great wearing it in the classic 40′s way. Bring back more pert hats!
March 19, 2009 at 7:56 pm
I never would have guessed that the world’s largest scarf on one of the tiniest of women could look so chic. She looks like a writer in the late 1930′s who would send Dorothy Parker into anaphylactic shock.
March 22, 2009 at 10:14 pm
Can’t remember if I commented on this already, but this is perfection in navy and brown.
July 30, 2009 at 11:00 am
…. and yet it seems so easy… Perfect! ps – ever thought of visiting Lisboa (Portugal) Mr Scott?
July 30, 2009 at 9:21 pm
owww i just love her! such a strong look i love the navy and brown the scarf and trench are lovely together…that scarf ow that scarf…i can imagine her stromping around the city in that..shes fabulous.
February 4, 2010 at 10:02 am
