    I love the different textures: loud textures against the black makes everything subtle. And I especially love that ruffly, wrinkled, coiled look; she’s even got them in her hair!

    And it looks like there’s a slight breeze to show how the outfit can move.

    Her facial expression goes well against the background.

    I can’t see everything going on here in detail but it looks great overall, particularly all the contrasting textures- the fringe at the hem, the ruffled whatever-it-is, the woven pattern on her top, the bag, etc. I’m always going on about texture and here we have it. Nice hair and boots, too. Good style.

    I can’t see what she’s wearing, I’m struck by that intense face. Wow.

    I like the way the ruffles in her coat complement the ruffles in her hair.

    Unusual layerings, black on black. Very interestingly gothic. I’m a fan. Her lack of jewelery brings out the somberness of the whole look.

    Love the textures and layers of black (it will never die!). Gossamer dress fabric, diagonal bag hardware. Great for the season and her street. She looks chic and working, not like a pack-mule or fashion victim. Well done.

    I love the frill collared jacket (i think that’s what that is? The shoes, the double bag, and woman are beautiful. They just all go to gether well. I just wish I could distinguish the polka dot shirt from what looks like a thread frayed skirt (which I would really like to trim off).

    Interesting.

    wow. she’s perfectly together and cool. wish i could look like that. love the boots, the top that does tricks, but not too many and her bags. hair perfectly up and undone and out of the way for the talented shirt.

    its hard to tell since its all blac, but it seems like the mix of textures in person is what makes the look

    Wow – she’s got this season’s look down to a t. I love her vest/gilet – that’s great piece where’s it from?- i love her bag and she’s got perfect legs for those boots. she looks great.

    her hair is perfectly coiffed – and I love the uniform black look. she looks severe in a good way.

    love the..”what is that comments” on the page..because she looks good..but we can’t pick out the articles she’s wearing. very spacey overall.

    Yep, we likey. The silhoutte and proportion are so good, the little booties perfect. I also like the amount of arm and kind of matching amount of leg that’s bare. And she has a “I don’t suffer fools…” look that’s always good!

    interesting..
    all the same color in different texture..
    Even her hair matches the little patch on her shoulder bag in brown.

    I also notice what she’s holding in hear hand gives a more vividness to this look.

    Gorgeous girl. She looks perfect from head to toe. The vest (if that’s what it is) looks like something Rick Owens might do, and the heels look as if you can actually work in them. Nothing frivolous. It all looks functional and beautiful.

    i tend to find and an “all black” a bit blah, but THIS is different really. i love the many textures happening in the ensemble.
    don’t fancy her shoes much..i think that killed it for me a bit
    this is so a look i would wear ~~the sleeveless leather thing and her BAG(!!)
    i LOVE her hair!!
    a very well put together outfit !! the whole effect of it is absolutely gorgeous~~*

    She composes her look with the right amount of disaffection. It says I live by rules, but my list is short. The look is dynamic since everything matches in color but not in shape or texture. She looks intriguing and slightly rebellious… –HB

    September 10, 2008 at 6:12 pm

    I really like this one!!! I like the fact that, at first glance, it seemed to be the standard all black ensemble, then you notice the fabulous textures & shapes. Very, very cool.

    i agree with magstermash about bold texture with neutrals, monotone.

    and i like that ske keeps her hair and makeup simple. is her hair very short or is it pulled back?

    I love the way the photo is composed. Cheers to her also for not dressing like a shlub (sp). It is very tempting to take the – jeans, sneakers route especially in creative professions.

    I like how femininity and toughness are combined in different ways throughout her look.

    And is that vest thing leather? and who makes it? I want.

    Exquisite. Pity about the modelly bit with the legs: a natural pose is so much more appealing. Ditto the tippy-toe picture in pink from several days ago.

    It does appear to be the accepted form here to compliment everyone, but dear me. Pop along to Camden any weekend and you’ll clock identikits of this look everywhere. They’ve been there for over twenty years.
    Dreary, uninspiring and done to death.
    Sorry, just an opinion.
