Fantastic. I begin to fall for classic plaid shirts. I love the long cardigan underneath, love dark jeans, love the belt, love sunglasses. But this woman can probably wear anything… Beautiful woman.
March 2, 2008 at 5:27 am
nothing short of fabulous.
March 2, 2008 at 5:36 am
God I love this women! Something about her is just so radiant!!! She’s a real breath of fresh air…you know? Love EVERYTHING she wears…Does anyone know what she actually does for a living? Would love to see more of her!
March 2, 2008 at 5:40 am
wow amazing shot, love the sunnies & the way she wore that cardigon…
March 2, 2008 at 5:51 am
Beautiful photo and lovely use of blue tones. really sets off her skin.
March 2, 2008 at 6:11 am
Truly amazing photo. Not only the girl herself, but the weather, the atmotsphere, the clothes..
Again with the bright klein blue to contrast, this is something I need to pick up myself, so inspiring! A hint of colour to an otherwise dark outfit.. Much needed in dull Sweden.
I didn’t truly like the jean colour, would’ve preferred it black or light denim. Or at least not that undefinable dark blue/green kinda Diesel tinto.
Thank you Sart, for doing what you do best.
March 2, 2008 at 6:12 am
great combination! I love that cardigan
March 2, 2008 at 6:23 am
I believe this girl has been featured on this site before, no? I remember her for her fabulous haircut and dazzling smile.
I love the blue plaid shirt – it serves as a good accent to the comparably sombre colours of the other pieces.
March 2, 2008 at 7:08 am
Wow that’s very stylish, i like it a lot.
March 2, 2008 at 7:11 am
March 2, 2008 at 7:45 am
We’ve been seeing a lot of plaids from you. I love it.
I, for one, cannot believe how slender she looks with so many layers. It’s also a really put-together layered look, as I can see every layer in its order, neatly arranged at her elbow.
Do you think such layering can achieve the very slender effect only on a very thin woman? Or is this sort of look an art that bigger woman could attain to?
Her hair just perfects the overall ease of the outfit. I really like this.
March 2, 2008 at 8:17 am
March 2, 2008 at 9:22 am
What a joy! She looks really casually well put-together. She is totally and gloriously French in her Charlotte Gainsbourg way. Ravissante!
March 2, 2008 at 10:19 am
This is exactly the kind of look that appeals to me most — lean, confident, intelligent. Love the coat and the jeans, love her attitude.
March 2, 2008 at 10:25 am
March 2, 2008 at 10:40 am
oh my god.. she’s unbelievable, incredible, amazing..this is one your best photos so far, Sart!perfect outfit, confident attitude and what a SMILE!
french women are unique.
March 2, 2008 at 10:44 am
i love how well the layers blend together! this is what i call a perfecr outfit; night or day, rain or shine, you can go pretty much anywhere and look stylish in this look.
March 2, 2008 at 10:48 am
I don’t like very much this model…
March 2, 2008 at 10:50 am
What a stunning smile, beuty!
March 2, 2008 at 10:57 am
She’s absolutely beautiful.
March 2, 2008 at 11:04 am
I love what she’s wearing but the vibrant smile makes the picture.
March 2, 2008 at 11:14 am
perfect smile and style. this blue gives her skin a beautiful tone. anybody else would look pale.
March 2, 2008 at 11:18 am
i really love everything about her! the shot, the pose, the black on blue, the sunglasses, the smile, everything!
March 2, 2008 at 11:21 am
Sart your shots are getting better and betterthe light in this one is amazing!may i ask what camera you use :)
so gorgeous. Wow!And that smile..
Love the blue and black colour combinationAnd the best piece of accessory that she wore.. her bright smile
March 2, 2008 at 11:30 am
I really love this outfit. I would totally wear this.
March 2, 2008 at 11:38 am
This is just COOL.I love menwear on gorgeous women.
March 2, 2008 at 12:01 pm
wow!!! thats all I can say. I wish I would see these people in the streets once in awhile. Just Beautiful, the layering, the long blue plaid dress shirt, that brings alive the entire ensemble. It is so relaxed her outfit, all the way up to her hair, so effortless, yet sophisticated.
March 2, 2008 at 12:08 pm
WOW. I saw this photo and literally went hand to mouth – she looks incredible. I NEED that flannel.
She is absolutely gorgeous.
March 2, 2008 at 12:22 pm
wonderful energy. this look would be nothing without that smile.
March 2, 2008 at 12:40 pm
wow. perfect. love the sleeves and proportions.
The most gorgeous smile!
March 2, 2008 at 12:43 pm
Love her hair, her sunglasses, and her beautiful attitude.The outfit, not so much. The plaid shirt and the belted sweater are already looking too trendy to me.
March 2, 2008 at 12:46 pm
perfect blend of cas chic!
March 2, 2008 at 12:54 pm
Gorgeous.The jacket is superb. It’s plain but it accentuates her tiny frame and the arm length is perfect. The blue and the black work really well. Normally, I’m not a fan of those two colours together.Only thing I’m not sure about is the wash of those jeans.
March 2, 2008 at 12:58 pm
What a beautiful smile and wonderful ray bans!
March 2, 2008 at 12:59 pm
Great photo – makes you want to be there talking to her.
March 2, 2008 at 1:16 pm
Stunning! Love everything about this photo, but most of all…her smile.
March 2, 2008 at 1:17 pm
March 2, 2008 at 1:25 pm
beautiful pic sart! i love how she adds a touch of color in her subtle and chic outfit. And her smile! gorgeous
March 2, 2008 at 1:43 pm
Fabulous!And I love the fact that this picture has such a life!love her blue blouse
Blue Floppy Hat
March 2, 2008 at 1:45 pm
That is one amazing lady…and great as her outfits may be, the best part of her appearance is easily that smile, and her insouciance.
March 2, 2008 at 1:51 pm
March 2, 2008 at 1:52 pm
Another capture where I don’t really notice what she is wearing because of her beautiful smile! Love her wistful hair and the sunglasses.
March 2, 2008 at 2:04 pm
She’s back and she is really just fabulous!
March 2, 2008 at 2:06 pm
it’s funny, that whenever i see someone with this type of face, they’re usually very happy looking.she’s beautiful.
March 2, 2008 at 2:08 pm
Im always excited to see Yasmin on here.
March 2, 2008 at 2:12 pm
She looks absolutely incredible.
March 2, 2008 at 2:27 pm
classic, understated, beautiful. I love the layers, and the belt.
March 2, 2008 at 2:28 pm
i pine for this balenciaga coat.
love the ray bans. a nice alternative to the now massively popular but nonetheless chic, wayfarers.
thumbs up sart.
March 2, 2008 at 2:53 pm
I’ve been an absolute fan of hers since first seeing her on your site–she always looks so good but also very natural. She’s a total inspiration. More pics of her please…:^)
March 2, 2008 at 3:16 pm
on the street? this isn’t right before or after a fashion show?i think it is. please fairly represent these glamorous people in their glamorous life. don’t make us feel like they look like this when they run to the corner store to buy milk.
March 2, 2008 at 3:28 pm
Yasmin’s back! Love the cobalt and black. And of course, the hair.
March 2, 2008 at 3:45 pm
Loving how such a simple belt completely makes this ensemble.
pretty kitty publishing
March 2, 2008 at 3:57 pm
This look gives grunge a tailored appeal. The hair is fun. An easy, chic look for a long, lean, lady.
March 2, 2008 at 4:08 pm
she’s an understated gorgeous
March 2, 2008 at 4:15 pm
My favourite indigo!
March 2, 2008 at 4:16 pm
so, so fabulous. her personality shines first and then her beautiful hair and smile and then the way that the clothes compliment her body and aforementioned personality. <3
March 2, 2008 at 4:26 pm
Sleeve placement, jean fit, shirt pattern, belt width, jacket length, ringlet drop… Fab!
March 2, 2008 at 4:30 pm
i really want to comment on this girls outfit and the photo, but i’m out of words.
March 2, 2008 at 4:44 pm
Gorgeous neck!I’m pretty sure the shirt is a Berangere Claire, very hip in France lately.
March 2, 2008 at 4:47 pm
March 2, 2008 at 4:52 pm
So totally refreshing!Incredible: this blue -a trendy color- is brought back to amaze with ingenious use of layers to create a perfect balance of confidence, ease, and great creative sense. Yasmin deserves more credit than some other figures that merely buy and wear whole outfits, loosing all sense of whim or even charisma. Yasmin makes easy to understand the difference between “consumers” of fashion, and a real fashionable self.
March 2, 2008 at 5:03 pm
she’s so beautiful! i love her!

March 2, 2008 at 5:29 pm
luv the flannel and specs!
March 2, 2008 at 5:37 pm
Love the girl, the colors and the picture.
what a beautiful name, beautiful sunglasses, and the blue.just amazing.Who is she?
March 2, 2008 at 5:48 pm
i love blue+black !
this woman’s hair always looks so great. PLEASE ask her to do a sartoria-list!I’m really liking the return of plaid.
March 2, 2008 at 5:56 pm
March 2, 2008 at 5:59 pm
I love this photograph, and her outfit.
March 2, 2008 at 6:00 pm
Second woman in a plaid shirt…Is this the next big thing?
March 2, 2008 at 6:18 pm
March 2, 2008 at 6:24 pm
o, she’s so cute, and you captured her enthusiasm perfectly, great shirt, glasses…and anything in paris is obviously wonderful.
March 2, 2008 at 6:52 pm
I love the shots of this woman! In fact, I was just thinking of her because I’m wondering if I should chop my hair off like hers. What a great cut and smile!! She’d look amazing wearing anything.
March 2, 2008 at 7:00 pm
…and my heart melts. Wonderful photo.
this is a beautiful woman! her hair tumbles perfectly in the breeze
March 2, 2008 at 7:32 pm
I was just thinking of Yasmin Sewell today, as I’m headed to the hairdresser on Tuesday to give my curls some life! It’s amazing how she can make everything work for her body and lines… love the lumberjack shirt and grandpa cardigan with a lovely ladylike coat!
March 2, 2008 at 8:05 pm
this makes me want a plaid shirt and a long cardigan like NOW.
March 2, 2008 at 8:44 pm
I love the black jacket with pushed up sleeves. I have seen this done many times and it mostly just looks sloppy. This is effortless and very cool.
March 2, 2008 at 8:53 pm
I love this shot – the plaid shirt takes me back to the ’80s but in a good way!
March 2, 2008 at 9:27 pm
Gorgeous. Sigh. I wonder if it’s possible to look similarly stylish if one is working with Gap and Banana Republic rather than Balenciaga.
March 2, 2008 at 9:31 pm
This is a fun and light look, because of her smile.I like that the layers are fitted, casual but not overly fussy. This is a very flexible look.
March 2, 2008 at 9:35 pm
This is Yasmin Sewell: the buying director for Browns, however, it is rumoured that she is to launch her own fashion and retail consultancy business…
March 2, 2008 at 10:14 pm
BTW: she is not french!
March 2, 2008 at 10:19 pm
March 2, 2008 at 10:20 pm
March 2, 2008 at 11:02 pm
It’s beauty blog :D
March 2, 2008 at 11:07 pm
Great photo! A perfect way to wear a belted cardigan. Love the sleekness of her coat, the scrunched up layers at her sleeve, and her hair..
March 2, 2008 at 11:29 pm
HOT HOT HOT! I love how everything she’s wearing is so well put together! Love it totally :)
March 2, 2008 at 11:37 pm
love this whole look – from the hair to the plaid. what great layering!?
March 2, 2008 at 11:46 pm
i want to be her friend.
March 3, 2008 at 12:01 am
the layering is fabulous!
and the cobalt blue really stands out against all that black.
March 3, 2008 at 12:08 am
love her automatically. such a jubliant face that easily transcends into her style.
March 3, 2008 at 12:15 am
Damn her, she always looks beautiful! The belt at the waist paired with the partly open cardigan might make others look pregnant, but she still looks fabulous. Love the long curving lines of the coat and the casually pulled-up sleeves.
Her smile is downright gorgeous.
March 3, 2008 at 12:21 am
Wow! Absolutely stunning!
March 3, 2008 at 12:39 am
There she is!! I was hoping you’d get a picture of her.She’s absolutely radiant and always an inspiration.
For Anon. 5:36: She was a buyer for Browns London.
March 3, 2008 at 12:44 am
I love that look!!!
When “In Barcelona”? :D
March 3, 2008 at 2:38 am
she is australian, originally, and a buyer for a London department store, i think
March 3, 2008 at 2:52 am
Yasmin’s not French-she is Australian(but lives in London and is/was a buyer for Browns?) One of the things i love about Australia is we represent such great diverse styles – the beach babe “Elle” look, the fashion forward Yasmin’s and Cate B’s (but maybe not so much the “yobbo” ugg boot look!!) Anyway, such a lovely happy looking woman-with a great eye for fashion!
March 3, 2008 at 3:46 am
The ol’ flanny, very Sydney-western suburbs, circa 1975 (well, it never really went out of fashion). They’ll be laughing their guts out in Blacktown! Perhaps Yasmin is embracing her Australian heritage?
March 3, 2008 at 5:43 am
I’m sure that this is Yasmin Sewell, buying director for Browns Fashion. She is of course English. Great sunnies, even better smile.
March 3, 2008 at 6:07 am
Oh she is a beauty! I love your work, Sart. I also think it’s awesome that you approve all comments before they are published. I used to run a streetstyle-blog, and when we noticed that not all people are very nice, and that the internet may be a cruel place, we had to enable the comments application. It feels like the time for all the small streetstyleblogs is over, but your work is so great, it won’t die out
March 3, 2008 at 6:27 am
She’s an Aussie by the way.
March 3, 2008 at 7:15 am
What I really like is the way she handled sleeves. Both the coat and shirt are great. Although I would work a bit more on the neck. Why not put the shirt collar over the coat?
March 3, 2008 at 7:18 am
I love the way this woman is dressed! :)
Bon Baisers de Nice
March 3, 2008 at 7:29 am
not sure if this has been said already but it’s yasmin sewel and she’s a buyer for browns in london (or was last time i heard!)….also….she’s not french, she’s australian!! yay for the Aussie contingent :)
March 3, 2008 at 7:46 am
I am glad that Spring is almost here. My winter has been so flannel, cashmere and merino wool bakari. This is a great photo that just oozes Spring. In this photo, black has never seemed so full of the life of spring. Brill photo.
March 3, 2008 at 7:49 am
She looks amazing the shirt and jeans are both ACNE – the jean I think is the LUV – the best cut ever!, and the jacket Balenciaga
March 3, 2008 at 8:17 am
GOSH! I love this look! I like how she belted the cardigan, rather than buttoning. The combination of colors is just wonderful! The splash of blue and plaid is done right, with just a little bit of sleeve showing. And most importantly she’s equipped with a beautiful smile. She’s absolutely DIVINE!
Lovely job Sart!
March 3, 2008 at 8:45 am
I love the jacket. Anyone know who it is by? I’ve noticed here recently and remembered how nice Browns fashion was when I emailed them about a product. You don’t find that too often now.
March 3, 2008 at 9:39 am
it’s simply chic.
March 3, 2008 at 9:52 am
Casual and sexy simultaneously. Very nice.
March 3, 2008 at 10:06 am
Hah, she’s not french, she’s australian!..yasmin sewell, former buying director of browns of london. agreed, she is gorgeous with a fantasic sense of style.
March 3, 2008 at 10:40 am
Yasmin Sewell always looks gorgeous, without being a slave to trends. Can’t wait to see what she’ll do post-Brown’s.
March 3, 2008 at 11:41 am
I love all the lines,so well fitted. I love her coat. I bought those same glasses last month.
Laguna Beach Trad
March 3, 2008 at 11:56 am
Great photo, Sart. She is FIERCE!! I love the long coat, the denim, the sunglasses, and especially her amazing smile. She looks very happy. Well done.
March 3, 2008 at 1:23 pm
YASMIN!!!I’m hoping my comment had something to do with the shot. ;)I missed her.
March 3, 2008 at 2:35 pm
March 3, 2008 at 2:49 pm
Sart : awsome picture…I wonder what kind of shoes was Yasmin wearing with that outfit??
March 3, 2008 at 3:21 pm
Uhg. I don’t know, Sart. Great photo (as usual), but I have to be honest, I didn’t like this look in the 80s, and don’t much care for it now. I see absolutely nothing original here. And all the FAWNING!OMG, it’s really off putting.
March 3, 2008 at 4:50 pm
completely in love with this look… the blue plaid pops perfectly, love the cinched high waist and rolled sleeves.
March 3, 2008 at 4:57 pm
You always capture people at their best and most beautiful!
March 3, 2008 at 4:59 pm
beautiful, all colors and shapes fit so well
March 3, 2008 at 6:00 pm
I love plaid! I would love to be able to emulate this look…
March 3, 2008 at 6:14 pm
I am very proud to say that this chic lady is an Australian.
March 3, 2008 at 8:58 pm
March 3, 2008 at 9:14 pm
I simply cannot get over how adorable she looks.
March 3, 2008 at 9:28 pm
She’s not french, I’m pretty sure she’s actually an Aussie. At least she used to work in Sydney…
March 3, 2008 at 10:13 pm
My favorite in months..
March 3, 2008 at 11:06 pm
Parisians do casual chic best….effortless. lovely.Love u Sart!
March 4, 2008 at 2:52 am
yasmin sewell is a buyer yes? she always looks great but im very surprised plaid is STILL around…
March 4, 2008 at 3:46 am
How wonderful…so understated and classy. And she doesn’t look like she’s trying too hard – she’s just naturally fabulous.
I have to say, I’m not usually a fan of plaid, but I’m definitely loving it in the looks that you’ve been showing us, Sart. I might have to go out and buy some flannel! :)
March 4, 2008 at 3:47 am
It’s so funny that everyone says she looks so quintessentially French, because she’s actually Australian.
From Sydney, in fact.
March 4, 2008 at 4:49 am
Not French…but Australian!!
March 4, 2008 at 6:03 am
She is fantastic, I love the hair
March 4, 2008 at 6:38 am
Gorgeous! Great photo full of energy!
March 4, 2008 at 7:58 am
March 4, 2008 at 10:03 am
@seeker 2:49 pm — I wondered the same thing and there’s a sart photo of her full outfit here http://www.style.com/fashionshows/blogs/sartorialist (See the postings for March 1). Her boots are as chic as the rest of her look.
March 4, 2008 at 11:00 am
Amazing photo !! This woman is so radiant !Very Nice ! She’so chic and natural !
Bizz de Paris of course !
March 4, 2008 at 12:19 pm
Thanks whyioughtta , 10.03.a.m,not so mad about the whole outfit though…nevetheless, she looks gourgeous
March 4, 2008 at 3:37 pm
This woman could wear burlap and look good.
March 4, 2008 at 6:49 pm
Each layer must be paper thin to pull off such a slim look, even the rolled up sleeves don’t look bulky, maybe its the lighting, maybe its her, I guess i’ll never know.
March 5, 2008 at 1:20 am
is there any chance you can put australian in the title. people don’t read the comments and think she is french. you did after all point out the next photograph of the gentlemen was american.
March 5, 2008 at 7:31 am
the girls got style…love this simple look…the shirt makes it pop! gosh Yasmin has great hair! FAB!
March 5, 2008 at 1:12 pm
Haven´t been commenting for a while, cause nearly all the comments are just so awsome,awsome and where do you get this and that.Kinda sick of all the praising comments.As if everyone thinks the same way. This lady is a refreshing pic. Looks like she is really enjoying herself and why not ,the sun is shining and she isn´t over- or underdressed.
March 5, 2008 at 2:23 pm
she left school at 15, has been buyer at browns for several years and now she is setting up her own fashion consultancy business. very powerful woman, fashion-wise.
great smile. she is an inspiration.
browns is a unique shop because as they pride themselves to buy only what they really like. i look forward to explore their bridal section.
March 5, 2008 at 11:16 pm
March 6, 2008 at 1:12 am
Thank God, one other person didn’t like this 80s flannel look – I am not alone! (I wonder if they’re Australian too, and if this hatred of flannel is merely cultural cringe?) I suspect no-one would be raving about this outfit if this woman was not tall, thin and beautiful. What makes it is the gorgeous smile.
March 6, 2008 at 4:21 am
she’s australian, i think, her name is yasmin sewell. shes a buyer for a store in london
March 6, 2008 at 5:12 pm
The plaid print and the blue of her shirt just makes this outfit pop. Absolutely beautiful smile and hair which sets of your pic amazingly.
March 7, 2008 at 2:54 pm
Her hair and smile are amazing… and that’s my mother’s name :)
March 7, 2008 at 9:53 pm
WOW! just… WOW! this woman looks like she actually enjoys life…great photo.
March 9, 2008 at 8:35 pm
it reminds me of something natalie imbruliga would wear. if her and daniel johns had had a daughter, this is what she would have looked like :)
March 10, 2008 at 11:03 am
There you go, guys. The article is a bit old (i.e. she’s now left Browns, etc), but this gives you a good idea of her style:
Ah, yes, us Aussie’s taking over the fashion world, city by city!
Eat your heart out.
March 10, 2008 at 3:30 pm
this is at the Chloe show!!!?isn’t this her
March 11, 2008 at 1:46 pm
This beautiful lady is Yasmin Sewell, a buyer for Browns in London and the epitome of chic in my opinion.
March 11, 2008 at 2:49 pm
Ah, Yasmin Sewell. Great combination. The colour of her jeans suits the dark blue section of her plaid shirt. Also, the shirt’s sleeve that peeks out a little bit from her blazer/coat gives just that right amount of zest to spice up this whole combo.
March 12, 2008 at 3:32 pm
this is just beautiful! no better words come to my mind. I would only like to see the shoes too, so I can have a complete image of how this beautiful woman looks:) I hope to get a short description. (and that wild hair and wide smile, beaut..) CeeMarie
March 14, 2008 at 9:08 pm
she’s not french she is australian
March 15, 2008 at 7:31 pm
yasmin is a dream come true. she has left browns where she was buying director and now launched her own creative consultancy business. watch this space as she shoots for the stars!
March 17, 2008 at 12:00 am
Not only is she gorgeous (obviously with an amazing, inherent sense of style) but she’s a really lovely girl. Must be her Aussie genes…
March 20, 2008 at 8:44 pm
These sunglasses are Ray-Ban clubmaster. I’ve got me pair of those beautiful sunglasses for less at http://xsunglasses.com/
