Just lovely, I love the oldfashioned look, she looks likes she’s playing a part in a movie..
October 13, 2011 at 8:00 am
That is absolutely STUNNING and other-worldly! Amazing…
October 13, 2011 at 8:01 am
Simply a dream. I love this picture !
October 13, 2011 at 8:02 am
ahhhhh – sigh – a fairy tale……
October 13, 2011 at 8:03 am
Fantastic! There IS hope for society!
October 13, 2011 at 8:04 am
Very dramatic! I love her hair and the colours and textures she has chosen. The umbrella is very cute.
October 13, 2011 at 8:06 am
my gosh!!! it’s wonderful
October 13, 2011 at 8:08 am
Wow. Is she real? The flaming red hair and velvety dress.. she’s mesmerising!
October 13, 2011 at 8:11 am
Oh! Her hair is magnificent, and the lipstick is perfect!
Love hear hair!
October 13, 2011 at 8:14 am
Semplicemente meravigliosa, il viso come di porcellana, l’ombrellino parasole…. quasi una dama a passeggio per i giardini di Versailles
October 13, 2011 at 8:15 am
How good is that hair with that dress? She’s like a painting.
October 13, 2011 at 8:17 am
October 13, 2011 at 8:18 am
Intriguing mix of delicate romantic look with spicy flavour – red hair. Perfect!
October 13, 2011 at 8:19 am
she looks beautiful, nice :)
The life after
October 13, 2011 at 8:21 am
This is so beautiful!!! Perfect!
Oh wow. This is the first shot in ages that has really taken my breath away. I love how this look is at once dramatic and refined, and while being based in antiquity, is entirely applicable in a modern-day surrounding. Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful!
October 13, 2011 at 8:22 am
I’m in serious awe. And she has my hair color!
October 13, 2011 at 8:23 am
Is this real? Stunning.
October 13, 2011 at 8:27 am
Oh my God! She is absolutely to be adored! She is Ms. May in the middle of October!
October 13, 2011 at 8:30 am
How stunning. A surprise to see her donning the red lipstick against her beautiful red hair, but she works it! Are her shoes velvet, too? What an awesome lady.
October 13, 2011 at 8:31 am
this hair!!!! WowWowWow
October 13, 2011 at 8:33 am
This woman has a beautiful skin! I love the color of her hair and her hairstyle. Thanks to the green velvet dress and his style she seems to come from the past. Also reminds me of Mary Poppins. Beautiful shot!
October 13, 2011 at 8:34 am
I LOVE the colors! Her hair and her dress are divine!
October 13, 2011 at 8:35 am
Totally from another age! Gorgeous. And so well spotted.

Hmmm, methinks our Sartorialist had a “Midnight in Paris” experience on this latest trip to the City of Lights! Maybe the sequel is “Noon in Paris?”
October 13, 2011 at 8:37 am
Mmmmmm…looks like a costume to me!
How amazing, I’m just completely blown away. I wouldn’t say that it’s a flawless look, but it’s so inspirational and intriguing!
October 13, 2011 at 8:39 am
She looks like she is out of a movie- what a stunning beauty!

thank you for your blog and beautiful pics;
October 13, 2011 at 8:48 am
Wow, elle est tellement belle !! J’adore sa robe <3
What a lady!
October 13, 2011 at 8:51 am
How lovely! She looks like she just time-traveled from another era. I especially love her creamy pale skin with that beautiful finger-wave red hair!
October 13, 2011 at 8:55 am
Wow! Awesome 19th century chic :D Go the velvet!
She transports me to another time! The dress, the hair color, the parasol are all so strong, could be almost overpowering on their own; but she looks so at ease and they blend together so seamlessly on her. Wonderful!

Could have been the inspiration for Art Deco artists in Paris at first decade on 20th century, I love it especially the hair colour
October 13, 2011 at 9:00 am
such a beautiful portrait.
October 13, 2011 at 9:01 am
What we wouldn’t do for her complexion – I guess that’s the prize for carrying an umbrella around all day!
October 13, 2011 at 9:03 am
This is a beautiful picture. She looks like someone from a different era.
Lovely, just lovely.

October 13, 2011 at 9:06 am
Left me breathless.
Gorgeous, love how she looks in the camera
October 13, 2011 at 9:07 am
She’s so elegant. I would want to get to know this woman’s life!
October 13, 2011 at 9:08 am
It seems like if she was in another era! Amazing!
Wow. She looks like she belongs in the garden. She should be a permanent fixture there.
October 13, 2011 at 9:09 am
Wow! Stunning photo!

October 13, 2011 at 9:10 am
Such a decadently beautiful look. Adore the rich colors, her beautiful hair, and that demure parasol.

October 13, 2011 at 9:22 am
THIS is an amazing photo. She is quite a capturing beauty.
October 13, 2011 at 9:23 am
I imagine this woman is happy and feels the world in a deeply beautiful way as she passes through it with awareness.
October 13, 2011 at 9:27 am
Lovely. Elegant and lovely.
October 13, 2011 at 9:28 am
Beautiful photo, beautiful outfit. I love the contrast between her fair skin and red hair.
October 13, 2011 at 9:30 am
This lady looks like an apparition from another age. Emerald green, pale skin tone and red hair, she could be Odette de Crécy, the character in A la recherche du Temps Perdu written by Proust….
October 13, 2011 at 9:34 am
Breathtaking! Everything works so beautifully together and I suddenly have an urgent need to own a parasol.
Do people dressed like that walk down the streets? (only in Paris?!). And you manage to spot them?
She looks amazing! Needs guts to have this kind of REALLY retro style (with the whole lot, makeup, parasol, shoes etc.). wow.
Kisses from Greece!
October 13, 2011 at 9:40 am
what a dream.
Yes, she does look very John Singer Sargent! Love to see a woman carrying a parasol! Well spotted.
Are you kidding?? I love this! I envy you so much living in a place where you can get to see this on the streets on a common day…
October 13, 2011 at 9:41 am
Beautiful! Love the finger waves…
October 13, 2011 at 9:54 am
October 13, 2011 at 9:59 am
Love the parasol and the set!!!! So elegant!!!
October 13, 2011 at 10:01 am
yes, she looks like a painting, enhanced by the fact that the photo is set up like an old fashioned portrait, the nackground flowers are impressionist!

Agreed, very beautiful, I love the Pre-Raphaelites.
October 13, 2011 at 10:33 am
This one literally made me gasp. The light on her skin is beyond lovely. It really is Madame X. Even looks like her right shoulder strap was off the shoulder and was pulled up at the last moment the same way Madame X’s was redone in the face of controversy.
Well done, John Singer Sartorialist.

Stunning! Amazingly beautiful.
AH, So perfect for the Tuileries…. stunning, who is she?
WHERE did she find those Velvet purple shoes?
Thank God I’ve lived in Paris, so while I am inspired and angst-ridden for the aesthetics of Paris at least I am one of the lucky ones…..
Now living in Las Cruces, NM… need I say more?
Merci for your Blog!
October 13, 2011 at 10:36 am
I love her red hair. Auburn eye brows.. red lips. It makes her face stand out since it compliments the green and blue tones of her dress.
Mary Poppins gone elegant… Love it!
October 13, 2011 at 10:44 am
Looks like a fairy tale! Really admirable how much effort she put into this outfit!

October 13, 2011 at 11:29 am
This looks too magical to be real! And is she really pulling off a skirt under a dress?
This photo took my breath away.
October 13, 2011 at 11:30 am
So lovely! Love her look from head to toe!
October 13, 2011 at 11:31 am

October 13, 2011 at 12:20 pm
It is inspiring how she creatively and effectively encompassed herself to become living breathing art.
The colors are an a lovely mix!
October 13, 2011 at 12:28 pm
I think that this is perfect. These days, untouched skin is kind of precious.
October 13, 2011 at 12:30 pm
this is one of your best photos and best subjects!

The contrast betwee th colour of the hair and the dress makes everything so unreal.

October 13, 2011 at 1:04 pm
All we needs is Renoir with his paints, brushes, chair, and easel – and we’re set.
October 13, 2011 at 1:06 pm
This woman is so softly beautiful. I knew it was Paris before looking at the words (do they sell longer-lasting lip products? I should stock up there). I love everything about this look, including the two contrasting skirts. The garden setting adds a touch of magic. Incredible photo–yet again. Thank you for giving us an aesthetic break in this too-crazy world.
October 13, 2011 at 1:13 pm
Thank you for showing somebody dressed really beautifully with no intention to irritate. Elegance and romance are never out of fashion, this photo proves it.

This fine lady in this gorgeous outfit takes us back to 19th Century. Classic, elegant, and vintage style really resurface from time to time.
October 13, 2011 at 1:27 pm
Perfect description of her! She looks gorgeous and that hair!

oh my gosh seriously this is not real life! she’s like a movie! so elegant and beautiful and old-world !! I LOVE it!
just amazing! I just read an article about the 19th century french architecture. I’m sure she fits within such atmosphere.
October 13, 2011 at 2:11 pm
One of your best. But then, the subject matter is perfection!
October 13, 2011 at 2:12 pm
She really looks like in a painting!

October 13, 2011 at 3:33 pm
Dante Gabriel Rossetti would have killed for a chance to paint this woman.
I am also mesmerized at how she manages to make this silhouette seem timeless and playful.
October 13, 2011 at 3:35 pm
Beautiful. I love her dress!
October 13, 2011 at 3:38 pm
She’s Eve la Plume, I love her so much….I meet her every summer at Summer Jamboree! She’s perfect.
IS THIS IT? models review
October 13, 2011 at 3:41 pm
Wow, so marvelous… I loved simply EVERYTHING. :)
October 13, 2011 at 3:51 pm
STUNNING, she is a complete vision, like a dream!
I would love to paint her.
I live in Paris near the Eiffel tower, and there is a woman here who wears the most enormous and complex hats with incredible multi layered furs, and luxurious swishing clothes.
She is as ethereal as the light, she passes in a waft of glamour and perfume, and then she is gone. I have even followed her to see if I could paint or photograph her, as she is SO amazing, but I can never follow her for long, she disappears!
Do you know who I am talking about?
Have you ever seen her or photographed her?
I wonder of any of your Paris connections know her.
I often see her near Ecole Militaire.
October 13, 2011 at 4:03 pm
so vintage love the total look!
October 13, 2011 at 4:21 pm
Oh, indeed! I adore John Singer Sargent!
October 13, 2011 at 4:30 pm

As soon as she popped up, she honestly took my breath away. I didn’t even have to scroll to see her whole outfit! What a fantastic woman.
October 13, 2011 at 5:36 pm
Between her romantic, vintage style and the pathway and flowers receding into the distance it’s as if she stepped out from the past and like in all the best dreams we who glimpse her beauty are left with a feeling of longing.
(I suppose in a perfect dream I would be as the suited man in the post above, walking my bike alongside her.)
October 13, 2011 at 5:45 pm
stunning hair colour, absolutely stunning shot
October 13, 2011 at 5:46 pm
oh my god!!this is stunning!she looks like she’s out of a book or an old film!
October 13, 2011 at 6:02 pm
Frankly, if I saw her on the street I would be curious but not impressed. But this photo is an excellent example of how important your work is – that the everyday can be transmuted into art, that the beauty in life can be revealed!
October 13, 2011 at 6:25 pm
Eve la Plume :D she’s a burlesque dancer and she’s stunning!
October 13, 2011 at 7:46 pm
She’s Eve la Plume!!!
Amazing burlesque dancer…!!!
On youtube there’s a lot of her shows!
October 13, 2011 at 7:51 pm
It’s is such an inspiration to see such a vision of elegance achieved using quirky preloved elements, but of course the real work of art is her hair. She wears her personality on her sleeve and it is lovely to see!

Absolutely breathtaking. It might be her makeup, hair, or porcelain skin but her grace and poise is what should be compared to a john singer sargent painting!

October 14, 2011 at 3:53 am
I like it!
as i typed in your url, i was thinking how your posts of late have been of trendy “fashion” people (not that there is anything wrong with them!), and i was hoping to see a photo of someone completely unique and inspiring. as soon as this photo popped up, i gasped. she was exactly what i was hoping for.
October 14, 2011 at 4:47 am

I can’t stop coming on this blog, the photos are so beautiful. Specially a picture like this one. Everything looks perfect here, the model, the facial expression, the background…and it’s a time-travel, this photo could have been in sepia (but it would be a shame, the harmony of colours is too stunning here).
October 14, 2011 at 7:20 am
I had exactly the same impression (about Sargent). I saw other pictures of her on her website; honestly Scott, you’re the only one who makes her look like a living painting of John Singer Sargent. What a great gift you have!
October 14, 2011 at 7:39 am
the best picture ever
October 14, 2011 at 7:50 am
Can I use this picture in my blog?
October 14, 2011 at 8:52 am
This is awesome! Feels like she just popped out from another century.
October 14, 2011 at 9:31 am
Such beautiful colouring. Simply gorgeous… Although I do worry about her vitamin D levels.

Oh,absolutely John Singer Sargent! Madam X in the flesh. (And now I have the Rufus song stuck in my head!)
October 14, 2011 at 1:52 pm
Its sad that I do not see more of this in real life. Just beautiful.
October 14, 2011 at 1:57 pm
this is just stunning…she took my breath away for a good minute.
October 14, 2011 at 1:58 pm
This image is just perfect. She’s like a living piece of art… fragile, vibrant, beautiful. Surreal! Thank you, Scott, for capturing this moment and for sharing it with us. I am amazed at your gift yet again. Cheers!

This clinches it, however: I am buying myself a parasol.

Wow, what a vision. Sigh… so beautiful. She does look like a lady from a painting.

October 14, 2011 at 10:13 pm
how I love this outfit, this woman, this pose! How charming to find someone like this in ordinary life (although I do still think Paris is special, I guess).
October 14, 2011 at 11:40 pm
Omg that is so pretty i love it!
October 15, 2011 at 12:26 am
Oh my goodness, you are spot on. She’s absolutely a Sargent. Looks like she walked out of the canvas for a spot of vitamin D.

is she for real?!!

For me.. she is the whole reason I ADORE the Sartorialist. To think she would be walking around Paris, for only the Parisians to enjoy.

A gorgeous look from an era gone by!

Wow….she does appear to be a living portrait/painting (and a most lovely one at that).
October 15, 2011 at 10:53 am
I like her finger wave. I was actually thinking about trying that with my own hair just the other day… she is lovely.

Wow! Talk about stepping back in time. She’s beautiful! The epitome of feminine.
October 15, 2011 at 7:15 pm
as much as I think she is stunning, the whole look is just too costuming for me… doesnt scream fashion at all….
October 16, 2011 at 12:26 am
simply wow! love the entire look – the best ever you’ve photographed!
October 16, 2011 at 12:38 am
Lovely. It looks like a painting, but with more life. Wow.

Wow – she’s absolutely stunning! Just goes to show that interesting is always more beautiful than conventional.

This is Eve La Plume! The most famous burlesque italian performer! She actually has a very personal style which is between the Marie Antoinette period and the XIXth century . You can also feel it in her shows. She also designs her own clothes. I am not surprised to see the photo has been taken in the Jardins des Tuileries, it perfectly fits her. I must also add she is a great collectioner of antic clothes and a lover of Montmartre and Toulouse-Lautrec : you can feel this just by looking at her as she looks like from an other era :).
Thanks a lot for this pic capturing her beauty.

she ‘s Eve la Plume, a famous italian burlesque dancer.

I love her hair & makeup, however I can’t help but feel that she just walked out of broadway/dance practice or something.
Beautiful girl nonetheless.

This is stunning. Absolutely stunning. I want to know her story. She looks so unexpected and alive and vibrant.
October 16, 2011 at 10:40 pm

wauw absolutely stunning! and she realy looks like a John Singer painting. love it!

I love that she makes vague period references – as if from different films (but she doesn’t try for a specific period ‘look’). She makes herself modern and old at the same time. Very romantic – like she stepped out of the cutting room of a period movie studio.
October 20, 2011 at 4:29 pm
Stunning outfit from head to toe, and a beautiful girl to go with it.
October 22, 2011 at 4:20 am
She is a work of art.

She does look like a painting sprung to life. Even her parasol and makeup are on point. Stunning!
February 2, 2016 at 5:48 am
She’s a faerie…
Like a being from another world.
