nice caption too sart…luv the backdrop..keep it up..
very Bianca Jagger back in the day!nonchalant tailoring. great pic!

This woman is so beautifully dressed. well done!
March 13, 2008 at 12:57 am
Such a great look. I love the sharp V that hits exactly at her natural waist, and then the slight flare of the blazer at the hips. It’s very flattering while at the same time being interesting and even trend-conscious (the wide legs, the masculine cuts). I’ve seen a lot of similar ensembles that weren’t as effective because they didn’t take into account what cuts would and wouldn’t be flattering. Of course, it helps that she has a great figure, but still–this woman is the antithesis of a fashion victim; she just makes it all work so well for her.

For some reason, this look reminds me of the model Lauren Hutton.
Is this a vintage look, or a vintage-like look?
The color combinations are subtle. The peeptoe shoes are classy, too.

Love love love it. So effortlessly chic. That blazer completely makes the outfit.
March 13, 2008 at 1:26 am
how very sexy & chic.
i love these two colors together.i don’t think you would get the same affect with black and white.on such a beautiful day in paris, it works.
sart, you always capture someone in the perfect setting.this is a favorite.
March 13, 2008 at 2:23 am
yes very chic
March 13, 2008 at 2:48 am
Classy. I like how the jacket is fairly long but seems to fit her shoulders.
March 13, 2008 at 2:52 am
i love the wide pants with the cropped sleeve jacket!!just a modern twist on a classic look
March 13, 2008 at 3:08 am
March 13, 2008 at 3:11 am
love those sleeves.
March 13, 2008 at 3:17 am
Wow I absolutely love this. LOVE IT.
March 13, 2008 at 4:02 am
Makes me think of Giorgio Armani. Very beautiful. Very nice shot.
March 13, 2008 at 4:43 am
perfect example of wearing an oversize-like blazer when you’re not 1,70m tall.
March 13, 2008 at 4:55 am
I definitely agree with everything that has been said here so far. I especially like the rolled up sleeves, which give this sophisticated look a “practical” appearance – I can very well picture her doing a good job (if that is not overly interpreted!?)
Also very much like the setting of the pic. This massive greenish Door as a background with the colors and pattern (!) she is wearing >> great!
one of my favorites!
March 13, 2008 at 5:26 am
love how she just folded up the sleeves of her jacket.. dont usually like matchy-matchy tops and pants but this is well done
March 13, 2008 at 5:43 am
Effortless. You just can’t buy style!
March 13, 2008 at 6:11 am
beside the point (being the grace and beauty of the lady and her outfit), but i do love the doors behind her..
March 13, 2008 at 6:13 am
Chicissime as we would say in French
March 13, 2008 at 6:29 am
This is a great outfit and greatly worn. It is as simple and casual as some of the men’s wear that I admire, but it still has a very feminine touch. The jacket is beautiful, very subtle, great cut and very special grey-pearl-beige-pale pink color; she did a very nice thing with her sleeves. Her hair looks very nice, also very well cut; I just hope she won’t use that black thing in her wrist to tie her hair in a pony tail later. I wish I could see the shoes, they must be pretty. And last, but not least, the door in the background is gorgeous!
March 13, 2008 at 6:44 am
This is so painfully good, I can’t believe I let myself get so old and fat! I have NO chance of recreating it.
March 13, 2008 at 6:46 am
Really chic. very Style.
March 13, 2008 at 6:47 am
the tailoring of this blazer is fabulous.. the way it hangs off her body, slightly oversized, boyfriend and sleeves rolled up = epitome of chic, in addition the colour is so subtle.
March 13, 2008 at 6:55 am
i love this outfit!
March 13, 2008 at 7:17 am
It’s a very chic look. Tres Parisienne.A hint of 80s but softer… well done!
March 13, 2008 at 8:07 am
The pushed up sleeves… the vest… the slightly popped-collar… TOO 80s. I’m not liking this one.
March 13, 2008 at 8:08 am
sooooo 80s :(
March 13, 2008 at 8:15 am
linen and denim always look wonderful together. this combination is a little unexpected–the sparkly denim with just a beige oversized blazer. it is wonderful!
March 13, 2008 at 8:16 am
Interesting. 80′s-style blazer (unstructured, no lapel, sleeves rolled up) and 70′s pantsuit-style trousers. It works. Retro chic.

first time in your blog, fantastic !this woman is perfect!have a good day!
March 13, 2008 at 8:28 am
Now we’re talkin! So well dressed it looks effortless yet chic. So Moi’s style.
March 13, 2008 at 8:34 am
Love this. Casual chic.
March 13, 2008 at 8:36 am
Most important of all…her elegance, she is really a lady!!
March 13, 2008 at 8:55 am
What a stunning woman!
March 13, 2008 at 9:11 am
I agree, very very chic!
March 13, 2008 at 9:47 am
That jacket is superb. Love the soft folds of the material and its slightly masculine/minimal look. Beautiful.
March 13, 2008 at 9:50 am
now that’s what i call a peep-toe.
March 13, 2008 at 9:56 am
I think it needs a piece of jewelry or a bag. It seems a bit two-dimensional and flat to me.
March 13, 2008 at 9:59 am
i just want to see her in motion.
that outfit is all about movement.
March 13, 2008 at 10:23 am
March 13, 2008 at 10:36 am
I agreee with Pretty Kitty; the jacket has that worn-in softness that vintage pieces sometimes have. In my view, that’s the main advantage of buying quality. A well-made garment ages better. Love the pictures and the peep toes!Jorge from West Palm Beach
March 13, 2008 at 10:39 am
Love this outfit! All she’s missing is a cloche hat and a long cigarette holder and she’d be right out of a vintage poster.
I find this a bit dull.She looks like an elegant flight attendant. Bring back the pink and orange!
March 13, 2008 at 11:18 am
Very beautiful. I admire this ensemble very much.
March 13, 2008 at 11:47 am
i’m digging the masculine look with the pants & jacket. someone said lauren hutton.. i thought katharine hepburn
March 13, 2008 at 12:12 pm
High waisted pant with vest and blazer? Nice. Even the peep toes work well here.
March 13, 2008 at 12:18 pm
I dont even know where to begin. Absolutely flawless. The hair, the cut, colors, shoes, fabric, texture, its all here and it look completely effortless.
March 13, 2008 at 12:29 pm
yep, very classy cut.
but where are the india pics? :)

Love the pants and V neck!
March 13, 2008 at 1:02 pm
Very nice except for the spot on her lapel.
March 13, 2008 at 1:11 pm
beautiful line- punctuated by the subtle release in the peep toe.
March 13, 2008 at 1:21 pm
My mom wore this back in the 80′s.
March 13, 2008 at 1:24 pm
It takes standing outside L’Eclaireur waiting for about 10 minutes, et voila, there’s your shot.You’re still the man, but this ones to easy.
March 13, 2008 at 1:29 pm
Wonder how many years that woman spent at the Bianca Jagger Academy of Transcontinental Chicness?
March 13, 2008 at 2:27 pm
My computer screen is a bit fuzzy today but I’m loving the texture mix with the pants and the vest (is it a vest?) as well as the jacket. Also love the peep toe shoes with the masculine clothes and the very deep neckline- she still looks very feminine and elegant.
March 13, 2008 at 3:13 pm
I don’t get it. Why all the compliments?
I’m seeing Ann Taylor work-a-day clothes from the 90′s. What exactly is she wearing—some kind of vest-like jumpsuit? Mmmmmmm… very chic.
Also, no one else thinks the plunging leotard neckline over a breastless chest is a poor choice?
March 13, 2008 at 3:43 pm
Got FM today. Morris Day and Prince? What a surprise – great profile!
March 13, 2008 at 4:04 pm
It’s … nice.
March 13, 2008 at 4:25 pm
This is who I aspire to be.
March 13, 2008 at 5:11 pm
You’re right…c’est la classe!
March 13, 2008 at 5:49 pm
modern and fantastic though there are slight 80s references that i love with the rolled up sleeves and shoulder pads. excellent look.
effortless and the suit? vest and pants anyway are divine!
March 13, 2008 at 6:13 pm
Those pants make her legs look really long.
March 13, 2008 at 6:31 pm
Classy, cool, non-trendy. C’est parfait!
March 13, 2008 at 7:04 pm
OLD SCHOOL GLAMOUR VIBE!!! Sickness!
March 13, 2008 at 8:06 pm
It is amazing that none of those individual pieces are particularly exciting, but together they make such harmony. This look is what I call timeless.
March 13, 2008 at 8:33 pm
Something about that tiny peek of toe is incredibly erotic.
I like that she wears little makeup to carry on that sense of cleanness, minimal lines, etc.
March 13, 2008 at 8:39 pm
Perfection. But what is that BAND on her hand I keept seeing all the time in Paris??
March 13, 2008 at 9:14 pm
clean lines and a great silhouette. the geometrical detail near the waist adds just the right dose of interest and the blazer is a perfect complement to the whole outfit – 100% chic!
March 13, 2008 at 9:30 pm
STUNNING….wow.She looks so natural and elegant.
March 13, 2008 at 10:36 pm
Oh wow, this is one of my favorite photos I’ve seen her. I absolutely adore this. Her clothes are so reminiscent of Marlene Dietrich, but with a very modern twisty. Pure class.
March 13, 2008 at 10:58 pm
i like the texture of the suit. i also like how comfortable, yet chic, she looks.
March 14, 2008 at 1:08 am
thanks for posting this. i remember seeing this on style.com and was hoping you’d post it here! the whole look–clothes, hair, pose, and all–is absolutely flawless.
March 14, 2008 at 7:01 am
soo chic and yet so easy. this is what i call effortless elegance
March 14, 2008 at 8:20 am
Interesting texture contrasts – two different textures of blue, shiny jacket against matte suit. Something you don’t always think about.
March 14, 2008 at 9:07 am
may i ask who she is?
from the neck up she looks like a 50s chinese pin up. (she reminds me of my mom, really) and i really like the jacket.
to whoever talked about the plunging leotard neckline, it’s pretty clear it’d only work if she had no chest. i love her!
March 14, 2008 at 11:05 am
March 14, 2008 at 12:09 pm
Amazing. I love everything about this outfit.
March 14, 2008 at 4:27 pm
Very serene and elegant!
March 14, 2008 at 10:38 pm
The single break on the trousers are perfect.
March 15, 2008 at 12:39 am
I am so addicted to color combinations like this right now. I love the fluid-unstructured line done perfectly here. Everything fits proportionally. A very, very nice balancing act indeed.
March 15, 2008 at 4:25 pm
Oh so CHIC mademoissele!!! I LUV Oversized long blazer, where can I get one in the US? Other than Topshop and shipping cost is US$20…ouchh… Her blazer looks like the one model Irina was wearing with her thigh high boots. Very YSL !!!
March 15, 2008 at 10:22 pm
oh the shapes!the tailoring of the trousers and the fantastic blazer; very YSL.
March 16, 2008 at 9:11 am
this is ne of the reasons why i keep coming to your blog. the pics like this – they look beautiful but are from this world…
March 16, 2008 at 10:02 am
i loove this.. the fit of the trousers are great.
March 16, 2008 at 4:23 pm
notice how she’s not wearing any accessories! not even a watch! i’m amazed. i can’t help but echo that “YSL” sentiment. the le smoking was made for a woman like this!

Hum … So elegant lady
March 18, 2008 at 4:57 pm
how did I miss this?? she’s stunning…reminds me of Armani in the 90′s but without the harsh hairstyles the models sport…this girl is soft and very feminine!
March 19, 2008 at 1:58 am
WOW!!! This reminds me of Greta Garbo for some reason.

March 19, 2008 at 8:51 am
this is just perfect.
March 19, 2008 at 11:08 am
Total effortless chic: think Armani, intellectual, feminist, and a drop of working mother. Are the blue pants and top a one-piece? Love how she is showing a bit of skin with the top, but is otherwise concealer. The peeptoes make the look more feminine. The hair looks almost Hepburn inspired, and the tan with the blue compliments her lovely hair and skin.
March 21, 2008 at 3:09 am
perfection!! the look exudes masculinity from the slouchy jacket and pants but offset with the low cut top makes it such a sexy look.
March 21, 2008 at 3:27 pm
Such a refreshing departure from those long-haired blinged-up Asian beauties! This is a lady who uses subtlety to the greatest advantage. Her hair is also inspiring.
March 21, 2008 at 7:14 pm
The comments, and I’ve read every one, are enlightening. I lodge #100 because, inter alia, the lady deserves to attain the coveted “Sart Century Mark.” (100 or more comments – I just coined this with Sart’s acquiessence).
The clothing flows like a light breeze: not over-bearing, but felt and appreciated. Dress the way you want to be treated: she will be treated very well.
March 23, 2008 at 11:12 am
Tres chic. Great pants, fantastic length. I like the way she rolls up her sleeves too. Is the lady of Vietnamese heritage? She looks like she might be Vietnamese. And the blue colour of her pants could be what some have referred to as either Chairman Mao Blue. Although I can’t be sure.
March 23, 2008 at 5:08 pm
Utterly stylish – the beige and black are so elegant, and love the lenth of the jacket. That plus the wide trousers make it so louchely cool. I do think it needs really fantastic quality tailoring to work.

This look is intelligent. I love how comfortable it looks. This woman could go anywhere and do anything in this. But I wonder, can curvy girls pull a look like this off?
March 26, 2008 at 6:12 am
At first I couldn’t decide if I liked her outfit. But she looks comfortable in her clothes (her body language says it), and people don’t dress like this anymore, so her individuality shows through, and she is a Yes. Nice setting, too.
April 4, 2008 at 12:26 am
very extreme chic… especially in front of those beautiful doors.
June 3, 2011 at 8:01 am
You have managed to capture her stillness. Very beautiful.
July 26, 2012 at 2:57 am
Love the fabric of the suit, I wonder what is it. The neckline is amazing and chic too, pity it only works with small breasts..
September 10, 2012 at 10:47 am
LOVE IT !!
This look is so relaxed its practically horizontal
…and the girl is simply exquisite
