Meeeeerci! luv it.

aklily, this is anything but simple and casual doesn’t do it justice.
Check the pants, the shirt layering, the scarf, the…
I mean, if she didn’t study this then she’s got some natural gift of glamour.

She blogged about her scarf on Oct 15: “Ou un foulard 2007 doublé d’un petit châle 2002 fait qu’on l’arrête dans la rue.”
Stopped in the road, for real! But I don’t know if it was simply the scarf/shawl remix.
Or was it, Sart?mltt

Wish I knew who made the pants with the pleats down the center … The fringy scarf is feminine and that smile is outstanding.

I’m sorry to dispute fellow commenters above, but I don’t find anything at all simple or effortless about the lady’s extraordinary sense of style. The combination of elements, colour, pattern, shapes, tailoring, draping, and proportion displayed here is extremely sophisticated and obviously very well accomplished. The unusual cut of the drop-pleated trousers alone would take a paragraph to adequately assess. And the two different scarves (one mesh, one an ikat print – look again) worn interlayered over sailor stripes is nothing short of brilliant.
The bag is perfect – big enough to look like ‘now’, but not so monstrous that it will soon look like ‘yesterday.’ Wouldn’t we all like to see her shoes?
If, as the post title indicates, the lady is indeed an illustratrix, I would not be surprised to find that her artwork displays the same uncommon subtlety and attention to detail seen here in her dress sense.

October 17, 2007 at 10:36 pm

October 17, 2007 at 10:39 pm

October 17, 2007 at 10:55 pm
This is how I want to look 10 years from now! If that happens I would have made my self a true woman.
October 17, 2007 at 11:11 pm
i want those pants.
October 17, 2007 at 11:12 pm
Love her! Great shot, great look.
October 17, 2007 at 11:45 pm
lovely with that smile & scarf!!! perfect fall attire.
October 17, 2007 at 11:57 pm
She looks wonderful. I think I need to go to Paris again to learn how to wear a scarf just so.
October 17, 2007 at 11:58 pm
I absolutely adore her scarf, it really matches her bright beautiful smile.
October 18, 2007 at 12:06 am

October 18, 2007 at 3:49 am
This seems to be an excellent background for everyone.Clearly the woman has spent time in dressing.One does not just pick all those pieces of clothes by accident. Colorful!
October 18, 2007 at 3:52 am
Work that Balenciaga look baby!
She looks lovely ;-)

October 18, 2007 at 4:02 am
I just fell in love with her and her style.
October 18, 2007 at 4:13 am
SOMEONE is ripping off balenciaga f/w07!
October 18, 2007 at 4:15 am
Thank you for another shot of a glamorous, stylish woman smiling! I just can’t understand the penchant for beautiful women to look so surly as in the ‘intimidation’ picture below. You look gorgeous! Enjoy it!
October 18, 2007 at 4:36 am
cute look with the scarf and the happy smile, she expresses the way i feel when im walking outside in the fall!lovely!
October 18, 2007 at 4:47 am
LOVE that Balenciaga scarf.. would kill for it ;) (not really but almost.haha..)
October 18, 2007 at 4:57 am
now this is a great scarf
October 18, 2007 at 5:58 am
One word. Balenciaga.
October 18, 2007 at 7:10 am
i wonder what shoes is she wearing¡¡
October 18, 2007 at 8:12 am
Her inspiration was Balenciaga?! I love it.
October 18, 2007 at 8:18 am
Ok…I’m neither psychic nor french but I swear I’ve seen this exact photo before. The reason:
I adore everything about this look and when school was out in Texas last Monday I described this look to my sister – for whom it is perfect.
Was it on the style.com site for a while?
October 18, 2007 at 9:05 am
She is beautiful. What a fantastic smile – great shot!
October 18, 2007 at 9:10 am
Hiiiiii, Garance ! (she’s perfect)

Oh wow! She is absolutely beautiful. I love the way she added the scarf (Hermes?) to an otherwise very masculine outfit. Gorgeous!!
October 18, 2007 at 10:48 am
Wow Amed, you sure are good at describing what you think of the outfit and her persona, I am impressed!
About the picture, I have never seen such trousers cut like that, inspiring!
October 18, 2007 at 10:59 am
October 18, 2007 at 11:25 am
this is absolutely wonderful.
October 18, 2007 at 11:28 am
This outfit may seem effortless but I guarantee it was thoroughly thought out. Parfait.
October 18, 2007 at 12:01 pm
Effortless but stylish. That’s how casual should look.
October 18, 2007 at 12:38 pm
Balenciaga-esque!! love it!
October 18, 2007 at 3:16 pm
Beautiful picture and look, but too balenciaga-esque to deserve all this praise for originality
October 18, 2007 at 4:24 pm
She looks so comfortable with herself – adorable! The scarf is ZARA.Beautiful.
October 18, 2007 at 4:51 pm
I love her scarf! And she wears it in such a beautiful way!
October 18, 2007 at 5:04 pm
thank you so much for the link, her blog is great!
October 18, 2007 at 9:07 pm
That scarf has the most delicious dabs of colour, set-off by the subtlety of the rest of the canvas! More of us should be dressing like that – making our bodies works of art.
October 19, 2007 at 7:28 am
she says on her blog that her pants are from Bershka, but they are a few seasons old.
October 19, 2007 at 12:37 pm
I am tied of seeing people write: “This is how I want to look when I am older” or “This is how I want to look in 10 years”. It’s rather a back-handed compliment. (You look good for an aging person!) So just say they look great and shut up about the rest.
October 19, 2007 at 6:04 pm
So fresh and classic… Chic and beautiful smile!
October 20, 2007 at 2:36 am
she looks so confident and comfortable! Beautiful!The scarf is ZARA.
October 20, 2007 at 5:44 am
I love everything about her, the beige pants, the striped shirt,the beautiful scarf and the open, true smile…she shows that class comes from feeling good within…
October 20, 2007 at 5:52 pm
wow, she clearly took the last couple issues of teen vogue to heart. (If you’ve read them, you’ll know what i’m talking about.)
October 31, 2007 at 10:29 pm
Love love love. Balenciaga in real life proper nomad in real life. i know what I’m wearing tomorrow.
November 3, 2007 at 11:27 am
Wow, I love this one. The tree lines lead you right to her lovely smile.
November 3, 2007 at 10:10 pm
I LOVE this photo and I love this lady. She is perfecty unself-conscious and flowing in a self-conscious, posed world. Very nice. Thank you
November 4, 2007 at 1:35 am
This look, the fashion, her smile, is forever.
August 3, 2012 at 1:24 pm
Where the story starts? :)
August 12, 2012 at 2:49 am
This is your most beautiful photo. She radiates a heart-warming smile. Her natural posture and body language is a genuine expression of warmth.
She looks awesome!
August 28, 2012 at 10:23 am
garance needs to tell us where she found that striped top! and is that a strip of cotton wrapped around her waist, or a layered shirt?
garance, you are just lovely.
September 7, 2012 at 2:19 pm
She has a lovely open face, great photos and great style. She actually even resembles you. You are right, she is to be admired for being able to take pictures in those high heels!
I hope that one day you will come to the LIF (Lima Fashion Week) Week in Peru! gaining fame and great designers each year!
November 5, 2013 at 3:07 am
Well, what is there left to say? It’s Garance! (Sorry, Scott; both your blogs makes me feel like i can use first names).
Pleasts over the thighs on pants are not common.

Garance Dore is timeless. Love her. http://www.girlinmenswear.com
