    Can someone be so kind as to tell me who this woman is? I have seen her all over the place.

    I love the hint of high fashion. I find everyone’s taking Prada’s runway show too literally and wearing the prada shoes with the prada dress with the prada socks, etc, because they don’t really know how to put themselves together. She looks like someone who doesn’t chase trends but rather takes what she loves from the season and incorperates it into her own innate sense of style. bravo!

    I love the hint of high fashion. Although this season Prada’s collection was stunning, I find people have just been wearing the Prada dress with the Prada shoes and the Prada socks, etc. This woman doesn’t seem like someone who chases trends but rather can take something like the beautiful ombre skirt and incorperate it into her own elegant sense of style. Bravo!

    Needs a longer jacket but the texture on the dress’ hem is a wonder!

    The jacket length and skirt detailing make her look fresh and approachable, totally at ease.

    Franca Sozzani is the single most brilliant and innovative magazine (Vogue Italia, L’Uomo Vogue, etc) editor in the world today (Sorry Ms. Wintour). She is smart, nice, classy, friendly, innovative, professional, loyal, responsible and chic.

    Is her skirt from the same people as the Jacket of the lady on the right in ‘On The Street……Via Della Spiga, Milan’ (an earlier post)? They are very similar in concept – both lovely!

    Does anyone know who makes them?

    Apart from that, I’m not a fan of her hair, but I do like the longer sleeves over her wrists, under the coat.

    Very understated and sophisticated. I would love to see the rest of that dress!

    I agree, lee d!

    Whoever said this collection was unwearable or only for fashion victims, here’s a big “screw you” from Ms. Sozzani!

    Camel is the dominant hue tying it all together. A very rich look.

    See?

    These are not pixel wasted! Francesca speaks volumes (without them having to be J. Crew’s catalogues).

    Anna Piaggi, on the contrary, is like a three-hour long trombone solo. Lovely if you are a trombone enthusiast, but a lot of noise to the rest of us.

    Just curious, but why all the women in substantial winter coats with no pantyhose? I guess it’s either black or bare these days, but as a matter of warmth and practicality, they’re not all that bad.

    the skirt is prada! probably the mostly worn designer at fashion weeks and the most amazing (my opinion) collection for f/w 07.

    This is why I love the Italians. When they dress well, it just looks elegant, and right. I compare her relative conservatism to the bizarre proportions of the Parisians in your other posts and shake my head. She embodies that little used word, “suitable”.

    More twinkle toes from a grown woman.

    I might like her (well, sure) and the photo otherwise.

    How very refreshing to see a woman who isn’t wearing those ubiquitous black tights/leggings. She looks like a person of genuine style, not a trendoid. This is one of my favorite looks I’ve seen on the site so far. And I like how simply she wears her hair, in a style somewhat surprising for a woman of her age.

    I love this. Its classic and understated with a touch of imagination and color. Not too much, just right.

    I love the clothes but I must admit I have a problem with the hair, it is too girly and it makes the face look very old. Thank you for a great blog, I love it when you comment on your pictures!

    She is an utterly remarkable woman because she is utterly unpretentious. What a wonderful photo. Thank you.

    I can’t believe how graceful she looks! She always brings something new to the outfits one sees every day, she completely stays out of the trend, looking even better. She looks so calm and at ease, that makes her look so elegant and classy. Her face looks wonderfuly natural by the way, much better than those people wearing tons of makeup!

    I think this woman is very, …very, ..very.. elegant!
    She has a unique way to dress so specialy chic.
    not in a formal behavior or looking sooooooo hard to be fashionist , and involved by this mad wordl of fashion
    she has a particular way to be elegant and simple, just great weather to be in a supermarket or in a runway show
    I want to be like her!
