    I think this look is great on her because her height allows her to have so many layers at all different lengths, including her hair, so it segments her body in a very flatering way…

    As a picture it’s a jaw dropper. Splendiferous. Her look is totally happening too. I get an updated Annie Hall vibe (the buttoned up blouse, the layers), mixed with a fifties pin-up do and a Mary Tyler Moore smile (and newspaper). Yet the sum is very now and very crisp and very alive and very lovely. Makes my day. Thanks.

    Now THIS is a truly stylish and creative take on “comme des garcons” (as compared, say, to that little Parisian blonde in the schoolboy outfit of a week or two ago). Love the tights. I wonder if maybe French women are a little too invested in the idea of being pretty and feminine to really work this idea? (not trying to start a nationalistic debate here–just wondering. Really.)

    Adorable! Love the nautical colors, and the way the soft fabric of the skirt softens the look. Also pleasing is how well the horizontal (sweater and bangs) and vertical (skirt and tights) lines work together. The newspaper inconspicuously tucked under her arm gives the ensemble an old-fashioned feel. Very nice catch, Sart!

Normally I wouldn’t love this kind of haircut but I think it gives the otherwise classic clothing the edge that makes it all come alive. I somehow think if she’d had boring hair, this whole look wouldn’t have the same impact. Bravo Scott, very well done!
