Love that she is reading a book. Great photo!!
November 3, 2011 at 8:15 am
What an awesome coat, and she pulls it off so well, so badass!
Gotta love a girl that reads.
November 3, 2011 at 8:22 am
what wrong with this pic! feet up on chair!!!
November 22, 2016 at 1:43 pm
That’s part of what makes her look so relaxed.
November 3, 2011 at 8:23 am
Love the photo!
I love how comfy and *out for a bite on Saturday* she looks, and then there comes the fur…and tennis shoes.. Something about her is so profound in the simplest way..
November 3, 2011 at 8:28 am
beautiful, moody shot. beautiful woman. nice one!
November 3, 2011 at 8:34 am
gorgeous fur coat!
November 3, 2011 at 8:38 am
She looks like a glamorous bear enjoying aspects of the human life – reading, eating, relaxing. Love it!
November 3, 2011 at 8:40 am
Beautiful. Did she know you were photographing her?

It’s a blasphemy to read a book & listen to music at the same time: must be a mediocre book

she is a dream.
November 3, 2011 at 9:11 am
Do I see creepers there… I love those… I still don’t know why I don’t have a pair in my closet. I guess I didn’t find the right ones yet. Any suggestions?
Amazing fur coat!

This is so picturesque. A simple moment from a woman’s normal life, yet her decandently beautiful coat sets her apart from the rest.
November 3, 2011 at 9:25 am
Chic — and loving that the paperback is tattered and in well loved condition. :) And her loafers in the foreground! (great juxtaposition w/ the cozy cover – faux(? I hope) fur. )
November 3, 2011 at 9:27 am
A true moment of grace, beauty and charm…
November 3, 2011 at 9:28 am
super fur coat ! foxy fox :)
November 3, 2011 at 9:29 am
That fur coat is out of control! Love it!

Wow she just looks so cool. I like the chill shoes paired with the glamorous coat.
November 3, 2011 at 9:37 am
such a great coat and look. send a raven about her to everyone you know..
November 3, 2011 at 9:42 am
I love the composition of this shot. The faux fur jacket, the ipod earbuds, the tattered book, the food containers and cigarette package on the tray, and her kicked back pose… It all adds up to a great story shot. Love it!
November 3, 2011 at 9:43 am
i NEED a fur coat
November 3, 2011 at 9:45 am
A true moment of grace, beauty and peacefulness…

love this image!
November 3, 2011 at 10:43 am
Stunning photo! It looks so natural…I have to wonder if you asked her to take the photo first because she seems so at ease? This coat is the perfect autumn hue.
November 3, 2011 at 10:44 am
Love this photo, especially since it seems that she is totally oblivious that you are taking her photo
November 3, 2011 at 10:46 am
Love the coat! Beautiful pic!
November 3, 2011 at 10:48 am
We never had an update on your custom made shoes Scott or did I miss it?
November 3, 2011 at 11:05 am
omg i love this that jacket!!!

November 3, 2011 at 11:37 am
love the fur
November 3, 2011 at 11:38 am
Cool…But I hope you asked her if she wanted her photo taken.

They argued at the cafe
her companion left in a huff
so she put her feet up on the empty chair
put the earphones on
and opened a book
snuggled in fur
she still felt cold
November 3, 2011 at 11:45 am
That coat is absolutely gorgeous! And she looks amazing and she is so into her zone that it doesn’t even look like she is aware that her picture was taken. She is indeed stunning and stunning without even trying. I love it!
November 3, 2011 at 11:55 am
I love her fur coat.
November 3, 2011 at 11:58 am
That coat is SO different and, well, she pulls off the look extremely well!
November 3, 2011 at 12:08 pm
these photos are beautiful. unbelievable
November 3, 2011 at 12:13 pm
got the same fur but never wear it.hope to sit somewhere once in it sometime!!
November 3, 2011 at 12:17 pm
the first dope photo in about three months. finally.
November 3, 2011 at 12:22 pm
very cozy pic and balanced look.Fall perfect palet.LOve the wall color mixing with the outfit. Coat is h&m i believe.
November 3, 2011 at 12:25 pm
She’s pretty fierce, kind of a big deal!

Fur coat, cigarettes, deli lunch (looks like Le Basket). At least she’s not reading a Kindle.
November 3, 2011 at 12:31 pm
Beauty in fisrt degree
November 3, 2011 at 12:37 pm
oh this is beautiful
i love the contrast between the new clothes and ipod and the old tattered book that she is reading
lovely photo overall
November 3, 2011 at 12:45 pm
love the elements visible..it makes the photo
November 3, 2011 at 12:46 pm
Is there anything better than a fur coat? My black faux Uniqlo one is my go-to for glam… I’m curious to learn how many men you’ve seen this season in fur, or perhaps mixed-medium, some fur trim on their coats?
November 3, 2011 at 12:48 pm
Amazing shot !
November 3, 2011 at 12:49 pm
One Of Your Best..Love it
November 3, 2011 at 1:02 pm
The fur coat screams “I’m soft to touch” in this photo.
November 3, 2011 at 1:11 pm
she’s all right. i like that she can read.
November 3, 2011 at 1:13 pm
So lush! I’m gonna wear my fur more this winter.
November 3, 2011 at 1:16 pm
One must always look fabulous, especially when sitting outside with a tray of deli snacks.
November 3, 2011 at 1:26 pm
Looks like she’s stacking (simultaneous reading and listening from her earbud) in a modern, glamorous way.
November 3, 2011 at 1:40 pm
Great shot – she was either really hungry or her partner is off to pay…
November 3, 2011 at 1:41 pm
very ny chic, salad then cigarette
November 3, 2011 at 1:56 pm
Greats, fantastic moment ! I love it!
November 3, 2011 at 1:59 pm
Is she a model ? She looks so cool and stylish ! Love the association of the fur coat and the creepers !

I say this every time I post I comment. But this really is one of my favorite photos. Like so many of your great photos there is a story as well as great style. As Marcel du Chump noted above as one potential version. Just so wonderful. Thank you.
November 3, 2011 at 2:28 pm
I don’t understand the comments about her feet up on chair. She’s lovely, the coat is fabulous, but what makes this photo especially nice for me is that it’s refreshing to see someone reading a book instead of a text message.
November 3, 2011 at 2:36 pm
The only thing better than a gorgeous fur coat is a woman so casually wearing a gorgeous fur coat :)
November 3, 2011 at 2:41 pm
This is Cate Underwood,ukrainian photografer and model and she is very beautiful girl)
November 3, 2011 at 2:56 pm
Awwwww. What a cute model.
November 3, 2011 at 3:02 pm
I follow fashion and am a huge fan of this blog, but am very sad to see her fur coat glorified in the comments about this photo. Animals who are killed for their fur suffer miserable lives. As a compassionate community, I just ask that we consider our choices and the impact we can have for good or bad. We’re all connected.
November 3, 2011 at 3:08 pm
J’aime beaucoup l’allure de cette femme, naturelle et pas du tout recherchée.
L’ensemble est absolument magnifique!
November 3, 2011 at 3:10 pm
I hope that’s not real fur (boo if it is).

BTW…some time ago I bought the book ‘City Of Shadows: Sydney Police Photographs 1912-1948′ after you have mentioned it on your blog.
It was just perfect for my last post…thanx for being so inspiring!

November 3, 2011 at 3:45 pm
She looks so calm, cool and unconcerned with what’s going on around her. She’s in the zone!
Fur is such a popular trend this season. I wore my faux fur vest. It’s the perfect accessory to spruce up a look.

Two containers and two forks. Who was with her? The photographer?

it’s not just about the fur jacket..i think the burgundy walls just like a link between all the elments in the picture,it just complete the whole image..and with that book and that zone that she put her self in…i love the whole thing ..amazing one
November 3, 2011 at 4:52 pm
I know this spot! It’s a deli with a little patio you can drink on. Cheapest beer in the city!
November 3, 2011 at 5:22 pm
I’d like some of them cigarettes… oh, and she’s ravishing
November 3, 2011 at 5:23 pm
That coat is so Margot Tennenbaum!

November 3, 2011 at 5:28 pm
This scene makes me evoke those little happy moments that make life so enjoyable. I wish I could jump into the pic to join her! Plus, I love the vintage-looking fur jacket.
November 3, 2011 at 5:41 pm
WOW! LOVE THE STYLE OF THE GIRL!
November 3, 2011 at 5:53 pm
gorgeous fur coat!!!!
November 3, 2011 at 6:33 pm
She looks like a novel character…

@Davide-The Royal Tennenbaums. Wes Anderson film. Gwyneth Paltrow played Margot. Black eyeliner and polo dresses, barrettes. Very preppy-glam.
November 3, 2011 at 7:08 pm
is this possible that this coat is from H&M ‘cos I saw one there strangly similar !!!!
oh my dior
November 3, 2011 at 7:19 pm
she looks so classy
November 3, 2011 at 7:41 pm
this is just too awesome
wonderful! she really pulled this look off well :)
November 3, 2011 at 8:25 pm
I love that she doesn’t seem to care, fur and all.
November 3, 2011 at 8:48 pm
She is a casual and gorgeous woman!

November 4, 2011 at 4:31 am
This has Margot Tennenbaum all over it!
November 4, 2011 at 6:18 am
This must be a Russian girl, she’s reading a pocket book. Its design is familiar to me.
November 4, 2011 at 6:41 am
It is not just a book. It is an old, used book with rough edges, being read by a lady in fur. With a plastic pack of salad before her.
This is so self contradictory and thus interesting.
Kisses from (the most self-contradictory country of the world, at the moment, that is…) Greece!
P.S. Lately I am having many so-called Sartorialist moments when on the street and cannot stop spotting interestingly dressed people all the time… Pf, wish I had talent for photography and some spare time…
November 4, 2011 at 7:35 am
November 4, 2011 at 7:49 am
It looks like she’s holding the book upside down. Don’t like her nose, dirty background and russian boyars style fur.
November 4, 2011 at 8:00 am
I wonder if she put on that coat because she knew she was going to be sitting outside reading, smoking, and didn’t want to get cold? It’s obviously fake fur, so relax.
November 4, 2011 at 8:52 am
I really like this Hopper-style photo! Congratulations!
Imperfect but sublime
November 4, 2011 at 9:15 am
Look closely: her beauty is not negated/diminished by that knob on her nose.
Sublime imperfection personified, this is.
November 4, 2011 at 9:54 am
Those plastic lunch boxes so discount this picture!!
November 4, 2011 at 12:26 pm
The fur is not real, it’s from H&M. I have the same one and it is the most soft and cozy thing ever!
November 4, 2011 at 1:04 pm
This fur coat reminds me of the 80s fur. Maybe I should get my mom’s from the closet. Although I have a feeling it will just eat me up in it’s hugeness.
November 4, 2011 at 1:21 pm
she actually really looks warm and comfy.
November 4, 2011 at 1:42 pm
The only thing missing from this photo is a glass wine!
November 4, 2011 at 5:03 pm
THOSE SHOES, if only…

November 4, 2011 at 10:30 pm
Cool and calm.. a wonderful photo!
November 5, 2011 at 1:00 am
omg i am in love with this vibe. laid back – but want to be noticed – but still chill look
November 5, 2011 at 5:14 am
Gorgeous coat on a gorgeous girl. My girlfriend has quite a few fur items. It’s a pity that she doesn’t wear them more often. I think people assume that they’ll be stigmatised for wearing fur (because it’s perceived as barbaric to kill animals). I think wearing fur is as natural as eating meat. And the truth is that most fur items out there are bought at charity stores anyway, so the animal has been dead for decades. I love fur – wish I could find a way to wear it as a guy.
November 5, 2011 at 5:50 am
Parfaite la photo, spontané, elle fait rêver.
November 6, 2011 at 5:51 am
Gorgeous. And such a wonderful moment to catch. I am not sure what i like more, the photo, the fur coat or her lovely angular face.
November 6, 2011 at 5:54 am
My goodness what snipey comments on a wonderful photograph of a compelling individual—*love* the bump on the nose, makes her so strong and unique, not just another pretty fashion face with the perfect figure, and oh, those shoes! Are they Prada? So fabulous. (and, NOT heels)
November 6, 2011 at 7:10 am
I love that she is reading a book (and a real, dead-tree book at that!).
November 6, 2011 at 7:01 pm
amazing. she’s stunning!
November 6, 2011 at 7:43 pm
loving the casual look imposed on the fur due to the surroundings
November 7, 2011 at 1:35 am
With book and tunes…great fur!
November 7, 2011 at 4:33 am
What a beautiful girl and style!

November 9, 2011 at 5:48 pm
Fabulous. I love it. I hope it’s a dead cuddly creature and not the fake crap.
November 10, 2011 at 3:49 am
Reminds me of a Hopper painting.
November 11, 2011 at 2:15 am
très jolie et naturelle
November 14, 2011 at 6:44 pm
Here’s an idea: how about NOT glorifying fur.
November 18, 2011 at 11:44 am
Oh so perfectly nonchalant
November 25, 2011 at 11:34 am
oh my… <3 fallen in love once again.
November 30, 2011 at 3:14 pm
On a recent shopping day, I saw a similar (or isn’t it the same ?) faux fur coat.
I wanted to buy it but felt like it wouldn’t suit me or that people would stare at me in the streets like (“Omg, she killed her own puppie !” or “Geez, she looks like a grizzly !”).
Then, I dropped by your blog and found out this picture of that beautiful girl.
I don’t know what but something definitively happened and I told myself, “You’re gonna get back to that store and if the coat is still there, just grab it”.
I went in today and guess what ? Not only, it was still there BUT it was on sale !
It’s purely an anecdote story but really, thank you ever so much, Scott for showing me how to be more daring and just following my instincts.
Wish you and Garance a wonderful time in Morocco xx
