thank you for this beautiful picture and the story behind it. i wish beauty would more often be seen as something having to do with life and a more complex meaning than just mere surface.

the outfit is tranquilo and very pretty.
November 19, 2008 at 10:16 am
I like that.

Thank you for including the story behind the gorgeous hair.
I just adore this blog.
November 19, 2008 at 10:31 am
This story makes her look more beautiful!Thanks for sharing this to all of us.
November 19, 2008 at 10:32 am
cancer…? she’s the epitome of true inspiration!
The story you tell serves as a lesson in the way of not judging by appearances.
It´s so usual that we think that a woman has a charmed life just because she´s beautiful. There´s more to people that meets the eye.
She´s gorgeous and the outfit is so light in a winterish way.
Beautiful! Her story is so life affirming!

She looks beautiful!Love the mix of greys.
November 19, 2008 at 10:55 am
Beautiful hair Scott. you’re right!!..:She looks fantasctic and the picture is really nice, quite revealing…lovely, seriously.X
November 19, 2008 at 11:02 am
lovely!, lively!, just beautiful!
November 19, 2008 at 11:10 am
mmm, she looks great!love her coat!;)
November 19, 2008 at 11:24 am
what a lovely young woman. and her story inspires me to perhaps keep my long hair, too.
November 19, 2008 at 11:26 am
Oh yes, it IS life. My grandmother had very long grey hair which she worn in a bun. During a long illness, the hospital nurses cut it off, because they were tired to care for it. She cried and begged them not to do it, because she’ll die if it’s cut. They told her not to be superstitious. She faded away and died soon after that.

i had cancer at 16 and lost my hair. my parents love my hair long now, makes me look healthy to them. but i like it short, too, makes me feel stronger. susan looks gorgeous, tough as nails, and glowing. love this post.
November 19, 2008 at 11:40 am
What a beautiful story! The first thing I noticed about her was her gorgeous hair, too!
November 19, 2008 at 11:41 am

everything about her screams beauty and life.
Great shot, sart :)

My first thought was beautiful hair,even more so now!Great story Scott. Tks.
November 19, 2008 at 11:46 am
oh, what a wonderful dress!
November 19, 2008 at 12:00 pm
she’s really beautiful! and the story just amplified her beauty.
November 19, 2008 at 12:03 pm
Before I read the caption I was completely taken with her hair and her smile. She looks great!
November 19, 2008 at 12:06 pm
Wow, this look speaks LUSH
November 19, 2008 at 12:21 pm
Love her outfit, and her hair is gorgeous. Thanks for including the story!
November 19, 2008 at 12:22 pm
amazing really beautiful
November 19, 2008 at 12:23 pm
What an inspiring story to the photograph. Funny how I was totally focused on her hair the moment I sent my eyes on her photograph, only to gasp in awe at the knowledge of it as a ‘sign of life’ for Susan. It really isn’t just about appearances. I love the draped jacket over the dress with the lace ups; the grey tones work together so well.
November 19, 2008 at 12:26 pm
I love the unusual little bag she’s clutching.
I agree with acasi – if I glimpsed this beautiful girl on the street I would probably think, ‘Oh, I wish I looked like her, everything would be so much easier.’ Not necessarily true.Thanks for sharing her story.
November 19, 2008 at 12:42 pm
a lovely girl showing appearances can be deceiving- as someone else said it would be easy to assume she has a charmed life, free of worry.
November 19, 2008 at 12:44 pm
Beautiful story and she looks lovely. Wow.
November 19, 2008 at 12:57 pm
a great ensemble, and her hair looks really healthy and pretty
November 19, 2008 at 12:59 pm
Yes!! I love this one. I really like the hang of the dress and the subtle reflection of colour in the check of the jacket. Good accessorizing (hate that word…) as well, all very classic and muted but completely harmonious.And yes, her hair is incredible. Her story really does make you appreciate her beauty even more.
November 19, 2008 at 1:02 pm
Her “Signs of Life” as a reminder of her triumph over a terrible ordeal is inspiring. More than a beautiful woman! She remains me of a young Beatrice Dalle, Sophia Coppola and Carine Roitfeld all at once…
November 19, 2008 at 1:03 pm
what a beautiful story .. makes you become very shhhhhhh….(index finger to the mouth)
Love her dress – the colour is amazing …grey but not boring !
November 19, 2008 at 1:05 pm
November 19, 2008 at 1:11 pm
wow. she’s lovely. and so young to have fought cancer.
November 19, 2008 at 1:18 pm

I love her hair, her smile, her story, her clothing, this photograph,this blog, and those ADORABLE shoes.

What a beautiful and strong woman.
November 19, 2008 at 2:31 pm
wow! she is so beautiful and full of life!i cant believe she had cancer, she looks so young!you go girl!
November 19, 2008 at 2:41 pm
how utterly gorgeous.
i’d die for hair like that.
and that story made the picture all the more meaningful.
November 19, 2008 at 2:52 pm
She looks like an amazing person inside and out thanks to that gorgeous smile and from what you’ve said. I think hair is an extension of how you feel emotionally, so no wonder hers is beautiful.
November 19, 2008 at 2:59 pm
What a captivating smile. That dress is beautiful, too.
November 19, 2008 at 3:14 pm
what a beauty and a beautiful story! wish her all the best!

Amen to Acasi’s comment this morning (“It´s so usual that we think that a woman has a charmed life just because she´s beautiful. There´s more to people that meets the eye.”)
Gorgeous hair and dress…
I was def. taken by her hair and her style is classy beautiful. Thank you for sharing her story.
November 19, 2008 at 3:23 pm
awww what a beautiful story..we should all appreciate our good health!
November 19, 2008 at 4:25 pm
GORegeous. Great story.
She’s perfection. Her hair was what first caught my eye too! I love her whole balanced outfit, and how the French are light on cosmetics.
November 19, 2008 at 4:37 pm
I really love your pictures, although its mainly fashion, it brings the uniqueness of individuals around us to me eyes. And somehow, you always capture the moment, putting a new perspective in my eyes
November 19, 2008 at 4:43 pm
She is beautiful both inside and out.
-h of candid cool
November 19, 2008 at 5:23 pm
o wow! that is incredible.good for her, that she fought the battle and won!it’s so interesting what you can find out about people when you take the time to talk to them.
November 19, 2008 at 5:24 pm
you know now that im looking at it, i wouldnt mind having that dress.
November 19, 2008 at 5:31 pm
at first she looks amazing and after reading her story i’m sure she’s really amazing.
November 19, 2008 at 5:54 pm
This young woman has really lived! She is very beautiful and not ‘precious’ about it. See the scars on her knees? I bet as a child she fell out of trees and off her bike and got her clothes dirty.
Now as an adult she is happy to show us her natural beauty. Her inner warmth really shines through.
November 19, 2008 at 6:17 pm
thanks for sharing.the story makes her more beautiful.

great story. looks like she’s living life to the fullest in super chic style.

A very nice post, including the background story and all the affirmative comments about her having successfully battled cancer at such an early age. This is a beautiful seasonal palette. I like everything, particularly the coat and shoes and that fabulous ring, and the folds created by her belted dress. She looks wonderful!
November 19, 2008 at 8:04 pm
gorgeous…but not mu style
November 19, 2008 at 9:22 pm
Beautiful hair, lovely story, great picture.
November 19, 2008 at 9:36 pm
I love it when you give us a back story, and I particularly appreciated this one… She is all the more beautiful and strong for what she’s been through, and to win the fight and come out looking like that? Wow.
Tick and Play, Meu.
November 19, 2008 at 9:52 pm
the flow of her hair til her dress and gesture is just right. lovely.
November 19, 2008 at 10:14 pm
I have that skirt in black- it’s Reiss, I wish I had seen it in gray though- like it so much more! What I would do for hair like that!
November 19, 2008 at 10:40 pm
My Aunt [she married into the family] died of cancer when I was only 10 years old [12 years ago] and she always used to touch my hair after she lost hers and told me how beautiful she thought it was. After her passing I made a promise to donate it. Well 3 donations later I’m growing it out for a fourth time because I know how much joy it brings to women being able to regain that part of their lives.
The story so over powers the image, thank you for sharing it.
fabulous hair. fabulous story. fabulous fashion sense. this photo makes me love this blog almost more than i already do! :)
November 19, 2008 at 11:41 pm
There is a great representation of ebb & flow in her look. Truly, an inspiring outfit and photograph.
November 20, 2008 at 2:26 am
Wow, she is incredibly stunning, her smile her eyes…such joy in them! What a lovely story, and an amazing outfit to match: love the dress & coat! Just gorgeous!
November 20, 2008 at 8:51 am
You have broken the belief that a picture is worth a 1000 words… your very brief story exceeds the photo… truely she was beautiful without your comments.. with? whew…
November 20, 2008 at 2:49 pm
November 20, 2008 at 10:08 pm
amazing story. she really has a beautiful hair :)
November 21, 2008 at 2:29 pm

November 21, 2008 at 10:15 pm

November 21, 2008 at 11:28 pm
way to beat cancer!she is insanely hot.
November 22, 2008 at 1:48 pm

November 24, 2008 at 10:30 pm
She’s stunning, with the story and without.
Take more pictures of her!! I’d love to see her hair complementing other beautiful outfits!
November 24, 2008 at 11:25 pm
Love the outfit, she is very photogenic.
November 25, 2008 at 5:07 pm
I had cancer last year and can understand how she feels about her hair. When mine came back it was even curlier than before and is taking a long time to grow, but I am definitely going to let it!
November 29, 2008 at 12:38 am
Wonderful post! I’m happy to hear that she’s healthy. Her hair looks gorgeous!
November 29, 2008 at 8:17 pm
she’s radiant from the inside. Beautiful eyes, beautiful hair.

A great picture and a big girl !!
May 1, 2009 at 11:38 am
The girl did touch my soul when I just saw her picture, I thought her is the most brilliant girl I ever saw in the blog. And I got to know why after I read the daily down there. The shine comes out from her heart, just like a angel.
Tell you that I also lost my hair during the treatment of cancer, and I got it back, and my smile too.
Thanks for your picture to let me know there is someelse that just like me. Love you.
June 23, 2009 at 6:26 pm
