quite impressed by how she wears that beautiful skirt and not to mention the colour combo with the shoes.

Love the structural elements created with the use of contrasting colors in that first shot’s outfit.

OMG! Does it ever end, now you’re planting people about Hong Kong too! These women all look fab, I noticed them long b4 I noticed what they were wearing!

The final photo looks like a bunch of trends thrown together. Also her hairstyle does not go with her outfit.
The other ladies look very nice.

The lady in photo 2 has a coat that looks somewhat strange.It looks as if the tayloring i not yet finished.The belt must be a stirrup strap.Cute lady though. The woman with long hair and a trench has nice shoes.I only wish the color or her trench would be different. The pretty shoes now somehow stay in the shadow of the coat.

I love the simplicity of her look and how she wore socks with her ankle boots.

Weird question, but where were these taken? I see an outdoor escalator, something you couldn’t pull here in Minnesota.

really smart the third one!!

First of all, that last lady has amazingly gorgeous legs. Ok. Secondly, im loving the black and navy clothing that you can wrap around yourself and cuddle into (inc. the background people too)

These are all great. I especially love the second photo – the dress is beautiful, that folding of the fabric and the looseness of the belt. Love it.

beautiful coat at the top, great lines and proportion

Love the color combo in the last photo: gold and black and white, but the woman looks uncomfortable. Could it be the length of her skirt?

Photo #1: the Bauhaus woman, Klimt hair and great modernist lines everywhere especially in the background. Very inspiring!

Love the third lady! I’m head over heels in love with those Dries shoes.

Top pic = FRUMP.

I want to comment on the lovely lady in the grey coat.
Fabulous fashion forward coat (looks like Marni): check!Super hot trendy shoe-booties: check!Sleek, neat grooming: check!
So why does she not look perfect? These same elements would look amazing on a leggy broad-shouldered woman, but on this lady’s petite fame it’s just too much.
The coat swallows her small figure in shapeless folds and the booties only further visually shorten her already not long legs (further worsened by ankle socks peeping over the top of the shoe). The lesson here I think is to wear what’s right for your body, regardless of what the editors are bruiting. I recognize that this season seems to be all about long legs, but there are surely better proportioned pieces to be had in the range of collections available to a woman with access to the Stella McCartney show.
The lady obviously has tremendous style and has taken care with her choices, but she has unfortunately chosen pieces that, in my opinion, do not flatter her individuality.

I saw the second lady in Paris. She looked absolutely amazing – even more so than in the photo (but it’s a great photo!) which is why I remember her. And that coat! I was in love with it at first sight.

#1 – Christabel Pankhurst, is that you?

I want to love all of Stella McCartney’s work, but only about half of it appeals to my aesthetic.
I do think she tries hard to work with shape and construction and fabric in great ways, even if I wouldn’t wear the stuff.

I’m always amazed how well turned out the Japaneese and Chineese young women are. There was one I saw in Paris at Hermés buying bags. She was so beautiful and bautifully dressed without all the logos that most of them wear.

In response to amed studio – I mentioned earlier that I had seen this same lady in Paris (2nd lady, grey coat)and that she looked great. Do you think it’s possible that the look doesn’t photograph well on her? I’m very petite myself and one of the things that I noticed about her (she was wearing the same coat) was that she was wearing a coat that I would never dream of wearing because of my proportions and she looked fabulous. She was also very graceful so maybe that helped too. Anyway just a thought. But I think anybody if they saw her in reality wouldn’t dream to change a thing.

Beautiful looks, specialy the 3rd one!
October 25, 2007 at 10:50 pm
The last women’s skirt is FANTASTIC.
October 25, 2007 at 11:46 pm
I think one should wear booties with caution, particularly with bare legs. The fact is it’s not an especially flattering style on most people.
October 26, 2007 at 10:44 am
The woman in the last photo is a true sartorialist. Personal style like I’ve never seen. The pop of color underneath the black cape is very modern and fresh and the confidence she exudes makes the look that much better.
October 26, 2007 at 1:45 pm
Those shoes in the last picture are dreadful. Looks like orthopedic, feels like heels?

Love the woman at the top, I scroll through your blog every day, and each time I do a double take of her…and I have worked out what it is, she looks like she’s been transported from a bloomsbury set party, and has that face reminiscent of Virginia Woolf or Vanessa Bell – quite amazing!
October 26, 2007 at 3:26 pm
Wow, all very chic! I do wish the last one–the blonde–had been nervy enough to go with the natural skin tone on her legs, instead of that awful pinky-orange bottle tan. This way, her legs appear to clash with the otherwise fabulous yellow skirt.

#1 – I love it all. Clothes, hair face. Probably one of my Top Ten posts.
#4 – I dislike this for many reasons. Perhaps it’s just the blue-ishness of her shoes complementing the orangeyness of her legs, but it would be nice if they were a color closer to her complexion. And I am not sure how old she is but somehow this look does her no favors.
October 29, 2007 at 11:44 am
the way the whole outfit is matched makes the yellow skirt so wearable =) impressive~
October 29, 2007 at 3:29 pm
love love love it all!
October 29, 2007 at 5:41 pm
has somebody been chewing on her skirt?

3rd woman: natalie joos, is that you?
