right in the middle of traffic sart? This is such a good shot! i love how crisp looking her collar is with that tie, its like shes say “guys this is how you wear a suit…”
thanks for this!
February 13, 2008 at 9:35 am
anyone know who makes her bag?
love the glasses, tie and material.
Fab-u-lous! I love this. Love it all. The charcoal colour, the masculine edge, the tie, the shortened trousers, the sexy corporate specs. She is amazing!!
February 13, 2008 at 9:37 am
Confidence, poise, beauty…wow.
February 13, 2008 at 9:38 am
I think this is my favorite ever! I love the loose hair with the crisp suit. Fantastic! And, yes, I agree with Andrew. This is a great shot.
February 13, 2008 at 9:40 am
Very, very good!
February 13, 2008 at 9:46 am
Looks as through it were taken straight from a Brooks Brothers Black Fleece advert. Incredible.
February 13, 2008 at 9:52 am
I love this look. I was trying to decide if I could copy it, but I think I am too short. I think you’d need long legs to pull this off. I’m just 5’3″ and not especially thin, so I think I’ll just have to admire it on her. Great shot!
February 13, 2008 at 9:53 am
This shot is an inspiring way to start my day. The combination of the loose sexy hair, and tailored modern suit (and, of course, the pylon) really make this look one of the best yet.It’s the short trousers that seals it for me.

Fabulousness speaks louder than words. Simply amazing. Although she’s dressed up in a very masculine clothes she looks very, very feminine. I think it’s her poise, self-confidence and beauty that shout: I’m 100% lady. FANTASTIC!!!
February 13, 2008 at 9:56 am
this is gorgeous. everything about it is perfection!
I would wear a suit everyday if it looked like this.Amazing.
February 13, 2008 at 9:57 am
One of your best. Tailoring par excellence. She looks good and she knows it.

February 13, 2008 at 10:03 am
A “Working Girl” for the noughties – she looks too good to be true. Fabulous post. I wonder what she does/who she is?
February 13, 2008 at 10:10 am
She’s a goddess. Beautiful.If she’s not a professional model, then I’ll eat my hat.
February 13, 2008 at 10:16 am
I just love the combination: formal outfitt ÷ wild hair
February 13, 2008 at 10:23 am
February 13, 2008 at 10:30 am
Wow – this indeed looks like a shot from a mag spread. Another impressive piece.
February 13, 2008 at 10:31 am
love it- so midtown
she MUST work for Thom Browne.
great though not a fan of the bag.
February 13, 2008 at 10:42 am
She has to be a model – you don’t see those kind of outfits in any real corporate environment…Fabulous!
Fantastic!! Think I recognise her from the Tom Brown section of Men’s Bergdorf… Shows in her style (which I think is her signature look!)
February 13, 2008 at 10:53 am
Lovely! She is the kind of being that makes NYC the kind of city everybody longs to live in, all about being free…
February 13, 2008 at 10:59 am
If this ain’t love, I don’t know what is. Amazing.
February 13, 2008 at 11:02 am
definitely a model.definitely one of my favorite shots ever.
February 13, 2008 at 11:11 am
imagino este look masculino e um underwear of silk.excelente foto
February 13, 2008 at 11:23 am
I think when you are shooting models who are professionally dressed (meaning, it is not their own street style) is it misleading not to identify them as such. I doubt very much that anyone minds, or cares, but it would be the more honest thing to do.
February 13, 2008 at 11:24 am
what an amazingly feminine way to wear a suit! everything is perfect from the slim tie, to the pant lenght, to the heels, bag(which I love,by the way)and glasses. I love it. Also, the location of the photo is great.
February 13, 2008 at 11:30 am
February 13, 2008 at 11:38 am
Very sexy, very editorial style – how DO you find these lovely people?
Mind you, I think this would be a tough look to wear in a corporate environment though (consulting/ banking). Which is a shame obviously…
February 13, 2008 at 11:47 am
I’ve been visiting this site for two years or so, and I’ve never felt compelled to comment until now. All the details are pulled off so well – the earrings, the hair, the glasses, the button down collar, the tie bar. Does she have a black cardigan underneath the jacket?! Oh man, that’s even better.
I would weep with joy if I saw this on the street.
February 13, 2008 at 11:54 am
I love this. I have been looking for a great suit for so long. It’s very difficult to find a nice women’s suit. That jacket is perfection. I want that bag too. Who makes it?
February 13, 2008 at 11:56 am
Love the masculinity going on here, esp the button-down and the tie-clip
February 13, 2008 at 11:59 am
wow. just, wow.
February 13, 2008 at 12:13 pm
Very nice Nicole-Kidman type look.
But I hope you didn’t miss yesterday’s opportunity to capture the snowbunnies (and hares) of the city! I saw some very creative combo with big snow boots. There’s nothing like fashion against a stark white city backdrop.
February 13, 2008 at 12:14 pm
Divine. Just divine. Everything: the colour combination, the textures the playful juxtapositions, the trouser length, the exquisitely well-cut jacket, her pose, the composition of the photogoraphy, and THAT HAIR.
I am in love. Sart, you have made a straight man out of me.
February 13, 2008 at 12:26 pm
Oh My God! How you keep from having a heart attack or weeping uncontrollably (with joy, with joy!) when you find these people is astonishing.

February 13, 2008 at 12:31 pm
effortless and cool
February 13, 2008 at 12:33 pm
This is PERFECT. This is what I wish I could look like everyday!
geek chic .. but with a little more chic than geek. i adore the glasses.
the shot itself is just gorgeous.
February 13, 2008 at 12:34 pm
I´d leave the tie out were I her. Just below the sharp eyeglasses the look is a bit too fierce. Maybe the jacket is just a bit too tight. Otherwise a good pic.
February 13, 2008 at 12:42 pm
actually, the suit looks a little tight to me.
February 13, 2008 at 12:59 pm
It’s a nice suit but does it suit her? Not sure if this colour goes well with her skintone and haircolour.
February 13, 2008 at 1:03 pm
So THAT’S how you do it! I love this…it’s a traffic-stopper. It’s great to see a tall woman who is not afraid to wear what we used to call “flood-waders”. Whatta gal. Those wacky scientist glasses; the “Father Knows Best” tie! Incredible!!!
February 13, 2008 at 1:16 pm
So many times I see photographs on here and think – if the guy or gal wasn’t so good looking then you would not have looked twice. She is undoubtedly beautiful and has the great long legs etc but the way she is living this – that is really beautiful
February 13, 2008 at 1:20 pm
OMG THAT IS HOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT! I’m so wearing that to my next job interview. She’s got my haircolor too, which is nice to see. :) Like the glamorous model version of myself.
February 13, 2008 at 1:24 pm
gorg! a traffic stopper!

Annie Hall meets Marlene Dietrich Meets 2008. Smart AND Sexy. The “anti-Rapper’s girlfriend” look for any woman who wants to be desirable and respected.
February 13, 2008 at 1:36 pm
Scott– Is this one of those Brooks Brothers boy’s jackets you mentioned in the past?!
February 13, 2008 at 1:38 pm
She looks spot on Thom Browne. This girl looks so familiar.
February 13, 2008 at 1:40 pm
This woman has nailed all of the details! Tie bar, pearl earrings, button-down collar, and a nice pair of strappy-black heels; beautiful… Subdued, yet glamorous.
February 13, 2008 at 1:43 pm
I think the outfit (and the woman) is gorgeous, but to me the pose seems very contrived. In general your subjects seem more natural or playful than this to me.
February 13, 2008 at 1:44 pm
sart – your best shot so far!!!! Love the girl, the outfit and the scene
February 13, 2008 at 2:00 pm
FINALLY, a woman shown on your blog wearing something I actually like.
February 13, 2008 at 2:05 pm
Absoulte perfection. The embodiment of a modern woman in 2008. No frou- frou, no clevage – so refreshing!This vision could not be any chicer – such an example of sleekness and strength and fashion.
February 13, 2008 at 2:07 pm
Now this I like!
February 13, 2008 at 2:17 pm
for anon 11:23she is not a model, she works a Bergdorf Goodman
March 25, 2018 at 10:30 am
She was a model. Celia Ammerman. She was a contestant on America’s Next Top Model.
February 13, 2008 at 2:31 pm
she shows no need to show skin and look sexy.she looks DANDY!
February 13, 2008 at 2:38 pm
Brilliant…and inspiring. When girls do the masculine corporate look they always mix a taint of that sexy secretary thing to it but this woman does not and I simply adore everything, including the fact that she left her hair as is…perfect.
February 13, 2008 at 2:41 pm
So feminine with no pink or bling.
Her dark dark eyes bring he richness to her pale complexion.
February 13, 2008 at 2:44 pm
Love. It. All.
February 13, 2008 at 3:09 pm
Not over-enthusiastic. Great shot, but:She is not real-life. Like a male impersonator.Even in rags she would look divine.The jacket definitively is too tight.
February 13, 2008 at 3:17 pm
wow..what a brilliant shot! love the outfit..very androgynous..she can definitely pull it off!
February 13, 2008 at 3:22 pm
love everything, but her choice of the shoes and the bag is simply amazing. they complete the look very nicely.
February 13, 2008 at 3:32 pm
Somehow I’m not believing you just happened upon this woman in the street. Perfectly groomed, not a hair out of place, photoshoot makeup, and the pose.
February 13, 2008 at 3:45 pm
Now this is more my style!!! Love, love this! And, I love that you’re in traffic!
February 13, 2008 at 4:06 pm
She looks so sleek. Absolutely gorgeous!
Does anybody know where her beautiful bag is from?
February 13, 2008 at 4:12 pm
This is a return to your form Sart. I’d been missing it there for a couple of weeks, but this is a great shot. Keep up the great work.
February 13, 2008 at 4:24 pm
Guaranteed to bring any corporate conference to a screaming halt.
February 13, 2008 at 4:31 pm
she just means business.
February 13, 2008 at 4:46 pm
This is definitely not an effortless shot, regardless whether she has had previous modeling experience, she looks too posed to the point that it has to be a contrived shot. Sart, are you trying to fool us and make us believe you have not pre-arranged some of these photos. Like I know, straight up, some of the people you have used somehow mysteriously show up again and definitely for the sake of honesty, and for the people you service here, using shots like this, makes most readers here doubt the legitmacy of you attempts to find real style. Please help us, not become lazy and accept more editorial shots like this, whether it was planned or not.
February 13, 2008 at 4:51 pm
BTW, the bag is Elliott Lucca, a great, affordable brand that I check out every season. I love that she’s doing style without spending the big bucks.
February 13, 2008 at 4:55 pm
Would it be ungallant of me to send her a Valentine?
February 13, 2008 at 5:15 pm
February 13, 2008 at 5:21 pm
unbelievable. totally nailed the androgynous look, which I’ve never been of fan of. Until now. I’m chopping and cuffing all of my dress trousers.
February 13, 2008 at 5:30 pm
If this _is_ Thom Browne, he should abandon men’s fashion. This is brilliant.
February 13, 2008 at 5:34 pm
for anon 4:46she is very much a “real person” and the shot took no more than a few minutes with no prep work – this shot is totally real but I do take it as a compliment that you think it is to good to be real. actually the guy from the “mixmaxed” post was shot about for steps to the right of this young lady
i think it is quite clear that the reason I run into some of these peiople more than once is because we run in the same circles or go to the same fashion shows etc.O was in the fashion business for 15 years before I started this blog so this is just my life
February 13, 2008 at 5:35 pm
Marc, It would *be* gallant to send her a Valentine.
I really, really love this. It’s fabulous and just a little bit edgy whilst not being edgy at all. I want to copy her.
February 13, 2008 at 5:59 pm
Excellent! What excellent style!Bravo!
February 13, 2008 at 6:24 pm
The best in a little while, what a beauty, great shot, great look. I am in love…again… :-)
February 13, 2008 at 6:25 pm
She is clearly a superhero in her daytime disguise! I love it!
February 13, 2008 at 6:31 pm
Yep, this is totally it. What a treat.
February 13, 2008 at 7:01 pm
“makes most readers here doubt the legitmacy of you attempts to find real style.”
Speak for yourself, please.
Sart, this is probably one of my favorite of your shots. She pulls off the suit perfectly while still maintaining her femininity. I wish I could meet a woman like this.
February 13, 2008 at 9:09 pm
I imagine that since this photo was posted, a lot more men may find themselves wandering into Bergdorf’s…
February 13, 2008 at 9:54 pm
Scott, a long time reader with a first time comment – this look, and your photo, is simply stunning. It’s a dull, dreary (and dateless) Valentines day in Sydney, and yet you (and this lovely young lady) have put the spring back in my step!
I cannot find one negative thing to say about this look; mind you, I can’t criticise any of the photographs you’ve ever posted – there is nothing more attractive than someone dressing in the manner of, and being comfortable with, their own style and flair; all your subjects display those characteristics.
Please keep it up!
BTW, any plans to visit Australia? Every time I’ve been in NY and hoped to run into you, you’ve been abroad yourself!
February 13, 2008 at 9:55 pm
Ill-fitting, creased suit? Not so much. Glasses, cheekbones, bag, and pose? Magnifique!
February 13, 2008 at 10:58 pm
Good job, Scott!!! I love-love-love this look. A look that’s definitely stood out from the other women you’ve photographed… She translated the look of a modern woman very well… a good blend of masculinity and femininity! *Wasn’t she cold though? It’s freezing here in NYC…*
February 13, 2008 at 11:14 pm
S E X Y.
February 13, 2008 at 11:32 pm
This is a beautiful woman. I feel that she could stop traffic in any city…even one in Kentucky.. Its easy to have a wonderful picture such as this, when your subject is so stunning. Besalt!
February 13, 2008 at 11:35 pm
I don’t know. I’m just not feeling this –or getting it– as much as everyone else here seems to. To me this looks quite costumey. I also think the jacket looks uncomfortably tight, especially across the chest.
February 14, 2008 at 12:03 am
i think this is one of your best shots ever sart! where do you find these people?!? she oozes sex appeal b/c she’s not afraid to look different. the glasses complete the whole look and bring it to the next level. fantastic!!
February 14, 2008 at 12:23 am
amazing….i just recently bought a suit and this is totally the look i was going for…what an inspiration!
February 14, 2008 at 1:13 am
Wow, she is something else!
February 14, 2008 at 1:25 am
Hmm, hate to put a damper on how great this picture looks but I think the suit causes a belly to be formed.
It’s not that obvious, or so I would imagine, in real life.
Everything else is wonderful.
February 14, 2008 at 4:00 am
Unusual combination of suit, bags and shoes. This is the sort of woman who inspires me to get dressed with a little creativity in the morning. AMAZING!
February 14, 2008 at 7:41 am
definitively she looks like a model!! but her outfit is amazingly perfect :-0) that’s the way a “wokers girl” should look at work…she looks cool, feminin, stylish, professional!
February 14, 2008 at 8:21 am
An absolutely beautiful shot, she still looks feminine as well
February 14, 2008 at 8:26 am
Jacket 2 sizes too small. Trousers 1 size too small. If she hadn’t been wearing blusher and lipstick, I would have taken her for a guy.
February 14, 2008 at 9:32 am
REALLY COOL PIC! RESPECT to master!!
February 14, 2008 at 10:17 am
Sorry for some comments, but this can’t be a fashioon shot : there are some little defaults and imperfections that show the “reality” of this lady : the not perfectly fitted suit, the creases in the shirt…
She is aa absoluterly beautiful young lady, perfectly grommed with no doubt a naturally perfect skin and model-like silhouette. And like others she must not be real corporate worker, because her garment is not a corporate garment but a fashion like interpretation of corporate clothing ans superbly done, mostly due to the contrast with her wild hair
February 14, 2008 at 11:20 am
An advertiseing whit Nicole Kidman?
February 14, 2008 at 12:02 pm
she shows you don’t have to show skin to be sexy. She’s a dandy!
February 14, 2008 at 12:51 pm
I love Jessica’s comment. That must be the story behind this!
Thanks Sart, you nailed it.
February 14, 2008 at 1:30 pm
i love it! it looks like she raided her little brother’s closet and stole his church clothes – makes me love it even more!
February 14, 2008 at 2:22 pm
oooh, a Kentucky girl.
suit is cute, she has fabulous hair, but she looks like one of the girls from ANTM.
February 14, 2008 at 3:09 pm
Oh my God, she’s perfect.
February 14, 2008 at 3:57 pm
Here’s a look that takes a certain woman to pull off! Amazing shot – she’s perfect.
February 14, 2008 at 4:52 pm
I’m pretty sure she works for Thom Browne. I saw her at his show and in his showroom. I have no clue what she does though…She looks lovely, but I could never pull that off with my body type.
February 14, 2008 at 5:06 pm
this photo must not be from this week. It has been freezing/slushy/nasty around NYC lately.
February 14, 2008 at 7:21 pm
This is a case of the clothes and poise definitely making her that much sexier.
positively the same dame
February 14, 2008 at 8:50 pm
February 14, 2008 at 9:12 pm
I love this woman. The smarts, the confidence, the posture and the expression!I can only hope I’ll be able to walk down a street with that much carefree confidence and control:)
February 14, 2008 at 9:54 pm
Good call Jessica 6:25, she’s a Lady Clark Kent!-Olivia
February 14, 2008 at 10:27 pm
since seeing this photo i’ve seen quite a few copy-cats on other street style blogs, though none quite as successful as this one.
February 14, 2008 at 10:30 pm
She is indeed a Kentucky girl and not a professional model. I went to college with her and am still friends with her roommate.
February 14, 2008 at 11:53 pm
I was attracted to this photo because she reminded me of Peta Wilson in La Femme Nikita – one of my all time favourite shows. A few people commented her jacket was tight; one person that it gave her a belly. Was the I the only one who wondered if she could be pregnant? Because if so, she’s has got some style for a pregnant lady!
February 15, 2008 at 3:39 am
great great great… perfect combination, the colour, the tie, the glasses, the bag… oh my!
February 15, 2008 at 11:17 am
“The trendy nerd”, love it!
February 15, 2008 at 1:06 pm
February 15, 2008 at 2:32 pm
I have seen her at Bergdorfs and if she ever spoke to me I’d go into debt buying from her.
Then there’s that blonde with the big smile on 1 behind the sunglasses counter. I blush whenever she says hi.
February 15, 2008 at 3:19 pm
I think the glasses are what really pulls it all together so well!
February 15, 2008 at 3:25 pm
Thom Browne ad, anyone?
February 15, 2008 at 5:03 pm
I always think androgynous dressing is sexy this outfit, hair, glasses is very.
February 15, 2008 at 7:52 pm
i love this shot – not only is she beautiful with amazing hair and cheekbones but i love her ‘office’ look!! and man, she stops that traffic – great shot Sart!!!
February 15, 2008 at 9:25 pm
Fab!! the ONLY way Thom Browne should be worn.
February 15, 2008 at 9:33 pm
i love the look but for all the wow-ing, she purchased the suit and i’m pretty sure it’s thom browne for brooks brothers.
the fact that she’s pulling it off is great and it is very realistic, love the tie, but i think in the composition, it has less thought than a lot of the other outfits that are on this site.
what i love so much about this site though is that you see people who really consider what they put together as opposed to following some laid out pattern like the one brooks brothers has in its advertisement. even the glasses are out of the ads.
February 16, 2008 at 1:06 am
for whoever asked, I believe the bag is marc jacobs.
February 16, 2008 at 1:46 am
thom browne for women?
February 16, 2008 at 4:49 am
February 16, 2008 at 12:38 pm
My favorite post of all time. Is that a Thom Browne? Amazing.
pretty kitty publishing
February 16, 2008 at 4:24 pm
Love the idea of this look, however, what about that fit? The tie clip and the pose are brilliant, though!
February 16, 2008 at 4:45 pm
smokin hot woman!
February 17, 2008 at 5:00 pm
This is so freaking cool! The boyish style against the girlish hair and accessories is Perfect. And extra points for the glasses.
February 17, 2008 at 10:23 pm
I want to look half this good in a suit! Great shot!
February 18, 2008 at 7:31 am
I have a question: is she a real woman or a model?Sorry if this has been commented on before, but I didn’t have the time or patience to read all the previous posts.
February 18, 2008 at 10:24 am
I think she looks spectacular. Tres belle…….
February 19, 2008 at 9:08 am
There is nothing sexier than a stylish woman wearing a suit. Kudos on such a wonderful shot.
February 20, 2008 at 3:09 am
She is the good reason for which a sicilian man could leave the Island
February 26, 2008 at 12:17 am
Very sexy, very editorial style – how DO you find these lovely people?
Mind you, I think this would be a tough look to wear in a corporate environment though (consulting/ banking). Which is a shame obviously…
February 26, 2008 at 11:04 pm
I love the look, however I feel like this pant length could only work on somebody very tall with long legs, which she obviously has.
The tie and the pant length is what make it difficult to wear in a real corporate environment; it makes it too much of a play on a men’s suit. Very lovely nevertheless and could work for someone in a more professional but creative environment.
February 28, 2008 at 4:25 am
It looks amazing and her glasses add to her general aura
March 2, 2008 at 7:58 am
She reminds me of Daryl Hannah in Splash
June 3, 2008 at 8:10 pm
She is like Daryl Hannah
July 14, 2008 at 10:08 pm
I think Thom Browne would approve.
September 9, 2008 at 11:42 pm
She definitely works at Bergdorf in the 3rd floor of the Men’s Store in the Thom Browne section. I used to work with her there!
March 5, 2009 at 1:16 am
Good ole Celia, I wondered where she got this shot from. She’s always had this appeal, even back in high school.
March 6, 2009 at 3:17 pm
Her name is Celia, and she’s on the current cycle of America’s Next Top Model.
March 10, 2009 at 1:55 pm
ha I knew it, she is on ANTM! well, she looks great in this shot.
March 18, 2009 at 3:53 pm
She is the best dressed ANTM contestant ever! She always looks so put together and so expensive looking. Love her!
April 8, 2009 at 4:42 pm

Celia Ammerman , what a fantastic girl and person, she is really helpful at the store, awesome personality.
December 27, 2009 at 7:30 pm
In.Love. She rocks this suit better than most guys.
January 8, 2010 at 10:25 am
Was flicking through the book and came across Celia. She was the reason I watched ANTM, I have a massive girl crush on her, which has just intensified seeing this gorgeous picture of her, wish i could pull off this look!
January 27, 2010 at 9:53 pm
she's from ANTM.forgot what cycle it was but she was on America's next top model.
February 4, 2010 at 7:17 pm
Perfection… with serious specs appeal
February 11, 2010 at 1:42 pm
It's Celia from America's Next Top Model. Love her style!
August 18, 2010 at 8:12 am
-america's next top model
i saw her..
August 22, 2011 at 12:30 am
Celia Ammerman, truly a fashion virtuoso, she has one of the greatest personal styles I have ever seen!

Usually I don’t read post on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to take a look at and do so! Your writing style has been surprised me. Thank you, quite great post.

Prettiness speaks louder than words. Simply amazing. Although she’s dressed up in a very masculine clothes she looks very, very feminine
