Nothing is out of place nor reaching. Everything about this sartorial ensemble says ‘I am COMFORTABLE, relaxed and stylish’. Gorgeous and curvaceous woman just embracing life.

Sorry, the cigarette just doesn’t do it for me. But then again it *is* France, not California. :-/

Perhaps she’s not French, but when I saw this one I thought: ‘soooooo French!’

this combination is fantastic… i love her shoes!!!
May 2, 2008 at 6:37 am
i love this look..tough & feminine at the same time, and for someone who’s very self-conscious of her legs, it’s the only way i would wear a skirt.
May 2, 2008 at 8:48 am
sexy hot mix..love her face

I like all of the elements of this individually, but when put together the effect is droopy… maybe if her hair were softly pulled or brushed back it would work for me….

Love the “New hippie” style. Her attitude, it´s easy but misterious…
May 2, 2008 at 12:03 pm
Vaguely Byronic: she looks like she might be “mad, bad, and dangerous to know.”
May 2, 2008 at 12:14 pm
Those handsome shoes.
May 2, 2008 at 12:16 pm
I love this. This woman and the grey-blue woman from yesterday look so uncontrived yet so perfectly put together.
May 2, 2008 at 12:27 pm
God I love this! this is my ideal! Unfussy & easy but so chic…
May 2, 2008 at 12:34 pm
This is me! Black, comfy, cool.

To me personally, her dressing weighs her down. She has thin long and slender legs, wearing those makes her look short. Its just sloppy i think.
All the women portrayed in this series are exquisite and radiant not just in their natural beauty and razor-sharp styles, but there’s such a strength of individuality in each and every one of these women that transcends a mere impression of fashion into such as an impression of the individual.

Surprised to see so much black for Spring (and is it still cold enough for leggings there?), but I love the proportions of her outfit.
May 2, 2008 at 12:53 pm
i love it.
May 2, 2008 at 1:08 pm
I love this, too. As someone else put it, a perfect mix of femininity and toughness. And usually I despise leggings! So many women could wear this outfit.
May 2, 2008 at 1:39 pm
I’d like to know who makes those shoes! i want them.
May 2, 2008 at 2:15 pm
May 2, 2008 at 2:18 pm
I am in love. I am such a sucker for monochrome done right.
May 2, 2008 at 2:33 pm
I love her shoes! and her face!
May 2, 2008 at 2:47 pm
This is a lovely picture and a lovely woman, but, on a side note, I do wish shorter hair would come back; the long locks on everyone these days are threatening to become a bit ‘uniformy’. You know?
May 2, 2008 at 2:52 pm
Masses of great hair-wish she would wear it in another way. An interesting mix of a skirt? and leggings,the shoes kinda fit the wholesome.

In california people drink green tea through collagen-filled lips and botoxed faces. There is a difference between being healthy and appearing healthy. So, no it’s not california, it’s france. Freedom does exist in france and not just on paper.
May 2, 2008 at 3:24 pm
I want to be in the south of france. Instead, I am in Memphis Tennessee.
May 2, 2008 at 4:32 pm
I wish I could see more of the top.
Unfortunately, the jacket sort of “kills” it.
That skirt is great, provides some texture into this simple look.
May 2, 2008 at 4:46 pm
I love her hair and the outfit is great, but i really, really don’t like the leggings.
May 2, 2008 at 7:01 pm
Her shoes are from Zara…Fall collection, but still in stores. I have the same btw.
May 2, 2008 at 7:06 pm
i’d like to comment on that california comment– you mean “L.A.” … not california. i’m in san diego, originally from northern california, and definitely do not see people like that in “this” california. :p
May 2, 2008 at 10:10 pm
I’m so happy to see a woman who isn’t stick thin on here. She’s lovely.
May 2, 2008 at 10:45 pm
“Dreamers” style. I love the girl in that movie. This lady/girl has an essence of her to me. The slight inward turn of her left foot is kind of sexy. A little vulnerability amongst all that black. Maybe she’s just Audrey from Encino hangin out in France, grabbing a smoke. You never know. Thank You.
-h of candid cool

o to have her hair
May 3, 2008 at 12:08 pm
The shoes are Derek Lam (Spring 2007?) I have them…they are fantastic.
May 3, 2008 at 1:09 pm
i love the new proportionsin her outfit.very chic. not everyone can pull this off.
May 3, 2008 at 2:25 pm
…and by “L.A.,” to the San Diego native above, you mean “Beverly Hills.” I live in L.A., but believe me, on my side of town there is no Botox. It’s the media’s fault for implying to the rest of the world that Beverly Hills and West Hollywood represent all of Los Angeles, so I don’t blame anyone who believes it. But it’s sad that the un-surgeried, un-wealthy artists, immigrants and families who populate much of the city (including my lovely neighborhood) are assumed not to exist! Oh, and on my side of town, all the hip artsy types smoke. Here’s to health :)
May 3, 2008 at 3:12 pm
gorgeous shoes. like the jacket and the texture of the skirt (as someone else said) but it could’ve been shorter. she looks great – very comfortable. is that a hint of repressed laughter hovering around her lips and jawline?
May 4, 2008 at 2:36 pm
Hmm.Too much black, and in a too unstructured form…
I can’t say I like this too much.
May 4, 2008 at 11:00 pm
This is the perfect French woman to me. The cool, the eyes, the hair, and yes the cigarette.
I love the entire outfit.

May 5, 2008 at 5:30 pm
I like her a lot.
May 5, 2008 at 7:07 pm
LOVE this look! Very understated, but very, very chic. She looks like the sophisticated version of the high school goth chic! That jet dress is stunning! The shoes are great as well!
May 5, 2008 at 7:35 pm
P.S. I couldn’t tell how gorgeous her face was until I blew up the picture! She is VERY Italian looking, very beautiful. She kind of reminds me of Monica Bellucci! I actually like the leggings, and I usually ABHOR legging that cut off below the ankle. She pulls them off, however. They look perfect with the flowing skirt with frayed edges and modern day pilgrim shoes.

So christianne, obviously you know nothing about California or the people who live here, but you are right that “there is a difference between being healthy and appearing healthy”. In California, about 8% of women smoke; in France about 27% of them do.
This girl is lovely and seems confident and comfortable with herself, and her outfit is individual, interesting, and flattering.
Personally, I like seeing fabric move on a body and welcome some of the softer clothing we are seeing lately. I bet she is just as pretty in motion as she is standing there posing for Sart.
May 6, 2008 at 5:37 pm
love, love LOVE everything about this. EVERYTHING!
May 8, 2008 at 3:07 pm
I didn’t think smoking was still in vogue. I thought it caused cancer where ever it was done. Nice outfit and pretty girl however.
May 10, 2008 at 7:37 am
Dig the shoes, lose the tights!
May 14, 2008 at 12:18 pm
I’ve seen those shoes in Zara stores
July 30, 2008 at 6:18 am
They are Derek Lam shoes.
September 14, 2011 at 12:55 am
The sun causes as much cancer as smoking, and yet no one gasps when people are tan. She looks amazing. So pretty.

It could have easily been me. ;-)
