The Lady and the Rant
October 12, 2007 at 12:50 am
Cute, intelligent and eccentric – a sartorial trifecta!
October 12, 2007 at 12:51 am
I love her glasses- so trendy.
October 12, 2007 at 1:02 am
this girl really is just so gorgeous. they way she wore her outfit was brilliant, in the most unsuspecting way.
October 12, 2007 at 1:16 am
LOVE her. I just found a vintage pair of red heels like that today. Makes me wish I had those glasses, too.
October 12, 2007 at 1:30 am
Those shoes… please, someone, tell me where I can find them!
October 12, 2007 at 1:35 am
love her! :) she’s my muse for today. :)
October 12, 2007 at 1:47 am
my goodness!that girl is adorable
October 12, 2007 at 1:56 am
Love this! Would never consider the jacket with that skirt. Well put together and accessorized from the hair to the shoes (great shoes!) Brava!
October 12, 2007 at 2:22 am
i was going to start listing what i love about her…. gosh, what don’t i love?!
October 12, 2007 at 3:04 am
that’s nice! humor full for her young age and the show she was attending. love the shoes and the gilet. perhaps the skirt isn’t that flattering.
October 12, 2007 at 3:09 am
I really like her! I think she is simple but amazing at the same time :)
October 12, 2007 at 3:12 am
October 12, 2007 at 4:16 am
I simply love her hair and the glasses. Perfect.
October 12, 2007 at 4:39 am
i love the glasses and the shoes in particular but in general the whole outfit just works! very librarian-chic
October 12, 2007 at 5:59 am
Those shoes are wonderful, and they keep this outfit young and fun, but she should be careful with how the vest flares out along with the skirt – because a total slumping shape will give anyone a bit of a dowdy silhouette.
What material is her vest by the way ?
October 12, 2007 at 6:03 am
i LOVE her glasses. Great photo.
October 12, 2007 at 6:21 am
yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
October 12, 2007 at 6:25 am
nice hair. original glasses. great
October 12, 2007 at 6:27 am
Sleeveless+Full skirt = New proportions = Yes!
October 12, 2007 at 7:08 am
I absolutely love this outfit!
October 12, 2007 at 8:00 am
She is adorable I love her!
October 12, 2007 at 8:02 am
How lovely she is! I absolutely adore her glasses!
October 12, 2007 at 8:32 am
this is incredbily perfect!i love it.
October 12, 2007 at 8:33 am
Cool girl and style in deed: great attitude and choices.This is one of those images that vindicate your vision of the power of the anonymous style. I do think you have different audiences, and I like the mix between industry (style.com) and this your original site. People are just difficult to please when being open to interpretation. I appreciate the openness.

As I was not present I might disagree with you. She has that Lisa Loeb vibe going on, intellectual-nerd-cute thing, but the akward stance throws me off. She could be a thinner Ugly Betty but I do like the red shoes.
October 12, 2007 at 8:58 am
I actually like the look on the lady in back. The Margiela black dress and the sandal & socks combo looks great on her.
October 12, 2007 at 9:00 am
she’s really pulling off the geek chic look–i’m loving the big nerd specs!
October 12, 2007 at 9:34 am
Like the shoes and the cool/nerdy glasses and hair. However, I never want to see another adult try to look “adorable” by using that pigeon-toed pose. Also, what’s with the mangled stuffed animal vest?
October 12, 2007 at 9:58 am
Coolest?Look at that gilet…horrible?And what about the glasses?No, no, no…
October 12, 2007 at 10:17 am
That’s not cool!
She looks like my grandma’!!
At least no cigarette!
October 12, 2007 at 11:06 am
I love those red shoes. The rest of the outfit…meh. I know it is intentional, I know it is ‘fashiony’ and is playing with proportion, texture, and aesthetic expectations and all that. But the horizontal lines hit her in all the wrong places, the sweater vest looks like I rescued it from the bottom of my three year old’s dress up box, and to top it off, the skirt is obviously difficult to press, because it is so wrinkled. I can appreciate the effort, just not the result.
October 12, 2007 at 11:40 am
Already wearing a Prada vest, even! Super cute.
October 12, 2007 at 11:46 am
its the hair and glasses. definitely. and even though im unsure about the skirt and vest, she pulls it off superbly. ooh i think i want to be her
October 12, 2007 at 12:10 pm
ooooh,i covet the red shoes….
October 12, 2007 at 12:19 pm
She’s very cute. It’s not everyone who can manage those specs! Love the shoes, the dark wall behind her. The people in the crowd are interesting, too.

October 12, 2007 at 12:41 pm
wow. i’ve never seen anyone pull off Nana Mouskouri-style glasses this well! bravo!
October 12, 2007 at 12:44 pm
really cool. i love that shirt i love the hair and the glass…everything really!
October 12, 2007 at 12:53 pm
wow, what does that say about the prada show?
October 12, 2007 at 1:29 pm
i love when women wear kooky little glasses like these. i think it takes away from the “pretty” just enough. so smart.
and i totally dig the ruby slippers!
October 12, 2007 at 1:48 pm
I like the shoes and bag…
But Woah! That is a dowdy outfit, very aging with those glasses. I just hate it, even if it is trendy. Sorry.
October 12, 2007 at 1:49 pm
Cool woman! How do you get your “objects” to be so present in the photos?
October 12, 2007 at 1:53 pm
There are the red shoes.They are cute.But that´s about all that´s cute in this picture.The girl with the white dress has made a bad mistake wearing black leggins with Donald Duck shoes.Not very fashionable nor esthetic .
October 12, 2007 at 2:03 pm
i luv this one!!! finally one person view that ‘the coolest’ means really the coolest. to be really comfortable in yourself. period.no agyness, no kate, no frills. straight punch. if i could score, this shot alone would give you an a+ on my list, sartor.
October 12, 2007 at 2:22 pm
one of the few women I would want to emulate.
October 12, 2007 at 2:25 pm
Another great shot.
I love the glasses and the shoes.
She has such a guileless air about her.
October 12, 2007 at 2:30 pm
I really love this look, especially the glasses. I always want to get quirky glasses, but haven’t found any that I like. I also have a pleated skirt like this that I haven’t worn in a while. This may help me pull it out of the closet.
October 12, 2007 at 2:31 pm
She was my favorite in Style.com pictures. I love everything she is wearing and the way she is wearing it. Definately the coolest young lady of the fashion week. And she is not trying too hard…
October 12, 2007 at 2:37 pm
I lovelovelove red shoes…and sadly own not one single pair. To add red shoes to an outfit is like a sweet, sartorial wink.
I need to wink more.
October 12, 2007 at 2:47 pm
i love her whole outfit from head to toe!
October 12, 2007 at 3:39 pm
i have to stop worrying about how and with what i will wear my red pumps. she schooled me!
October 12, 2007 at 3:49 pm
Yes, she has a very cool style!
October 12, 2007 at 4:01 pm
She’s my new style guru
October 12, 2007 at 4:11 pm
that’s soo prada !!gorgeous!!geek chic….
October 12, 2007 at 4:12 pm
Overall, I like the ease of her look — I can see why you call her “cool”. The shoes are gorgeous, but I’m not sure about the vest — it looks like fun fur. I’m also digging the woman with the black shoes and socks combo behind her.
October 12, 2007 at 4:24 pm
wow! this is truly stunning! She’s so young, yet she looks so mature, intelligent, very fashion conscious and aware of her self image. Great image, great outfit!
October 12, 2007 at 4:53 pm
I found this site a long while ago. I love the pictures and I learn sooooo much! It is helping me find some of my own style.
But I have to admit that I am stymied by this picture. Is it me? Do I need more training? More Sartorialist?
This young lady seems out of proportion – the vest length with the length of the pleats on the skirt make her look wide in the “saddle bag” area. The sleeveless top combined with the texture on the vest seems top out of balance with the length of the skirt. The color choices seem disparate to me but that is purely personal taste.
So I guess I better study here some more to make sure!
puzzled in the “hinterlands”
October 12, 2007 at 5:19 pm
Although I don’t like that vest, she has a great personal style. I also like her skirt, her shoes and her hair!!As Sart said, a cool young lady indeed.
October 12, 2007 at 6:24 pm
that’s my style! cute-ladylike-librarian-chic. love her shoes, hair and glasses!
October 12, 2007 at 6:45 pm
I want her shoes!
October 12, 2007 at 7:10 pm
Yes, very cool!!
October 12, 2007 at 7:50 pm
Lovely, but why do so many of your female subjects insist on posing pigeon-toed? A bit affectatious, if you ask me.
pretty kitty publishing
October 12, 2007 at 8:33 pm
The footwear in this photo is weighty, heavy, and spunky. The idea of the nerdy glasses with the red Mary Janes is a fantastic move. And the texture of her vest compliments the sheen of her skirt. This is a smart, sexy, bookish look.
October 12, 2007 at 9:39 pm
I like her vest!
October 12, 2007 at 9:52 pm
i love her shoes!
October 12, 2007 at 9:56 pm
October 12, 2007 at 10:17 pm
Those shoes are AMAZING. Her whole look is lovely. She really knows how to put an outfit together.
October 12, 2007 at 10:36 pm
she epitomizes prada.
October 12, 2007 at 11:35 pm
Has the girl on the right had such a hurry to Prada´s that she pulled her dress the front side to the back or what? Obviously the hurry was real cause she forgot to pull her socks up and comb her hair too.
October 13, 2007 at 12:24 am
I love it, the shoes, the glasses and THAT jacket/vest thing – amazing… and somehow perfectly comical!
October 13, 2007 at 1:14 am
a little bit quirky, yet demure.
she looks excellent & i think i’m in love with the glasses.
October 13, 2007 at 1:30 am
The shoes. The glasses. I wish I knew her.The vest? Not so much. But still. Love it.
October 13, 2007 at 4:09 am
Personally, I find that lady in the background wearing Margiela quite enchanting.
October 13, 2007 at 6:39 am
The shoes, the shooooees! I’m in love.
October 13, 2007 at 8:46 am
Can anyone tell me who makes those black shoes on the woman to the right in black? I could actually walk in those shoes.
October 13, 2007 at 10:26 am
Geeky femme! Perfect!
October 13, 2007 at 11:12 am
hello?open your eyes!that is awful!ok, the shoes are nice, but the rest – no way.
October 13, 2007 at 1:13 pm
Her colors look so refreshing because she is standing in a sea of black, white, and grey.
Without that, she would look drab and dowdy.
October 13, 2007 at 2:32 pm
Refreshing to see some “new” silhouettes & proportions & colors this season and she really is the coolest embodiment of that.
I’m sick to death of micro-minis and black leggings (well, black in general — and I wear a lot of black).
PS — One can buy very stylish and comfy dance shoes of this type (and color!). Have a cobbler put rubber soles on them. Not expensive and classic design.
October 13, 2007 at 2:38 pm
It’s all about the shoes in this photo!
Ruby reds on a girl trying to look even more girly then pumps on porcelain and then peep toes…with socks!
Gotta love it,mltt
October 13, 2007 at 5:41 pm
October 13, 2007 at 8:20 pm
I think she’s too hippy for the skirt but otherwise I like her look.
October 13, 2007 at 9:53 pm
I like the shoes, and I like the “nerd-chic” look of the hairstyle and glasses. However, I don’t think either the skirt or vest are flattering on her.
October 13, 2007 at 10:12 pm
My favorite part is the little bruise on her right leg. It says, “I’m real”. Lord knows, that’s the statement I pretend I’m making when leaving the house in a skirt over a bruised shin! That is the sort of thing that makes her cool, but not “too cool”. A good thing.
October 14, 2007 at 4:40 am
is that prada?
October 14, 2007 at 4:50 am
she’s so great.
October 14, 2007 at 8:01 am
To be honest, she looks like a dork.
October 15, 2007 at 6:35 am
seems like a grown up miss sunshine
October 15, 2007 at 8:31 am
So age-less her look and style. The lady in Margiela and the black socks? So obviously following the runway look.
October 15, 2007 at 11:30 am
The drop-waist pleated skirt!Also Margiela woman’s black socks
October 15, 2007 at 3:44 pm
this is dowdy-chic…
October 15, 2007 at 3:45 pm
this is dowdy-chic, n’est pas?
October 16, 2007 at 2:45 am
I like her style; she has a nonchalant air about her. Her glasses are cool and proportionate to her face. I think we have the same face shape. I wear small, rectangular glasses and I think they’re too small on me.
October 16, 2007 at 5:55 am
Fashion is biting its own tail. The nerd is no longer a nerd, he/she is trendy. What about the good old “style never goes out of fashion”? The Sartorialist has become a freak show.
October 16, 2007 at 9:37 am
Give her the credit. She has an air of self-assuredness. A distinct look of her own that day, in the midst of the fashion chasers.
October 16, 2007 at 1:18 pm
Will she marry me?
Oh ya, PPS: pretty pleated skirt.
October 19, 2007 at 5:04 pm
Isn’t this the same beauty that he photogrphed with her hair flowing and she wore knee soxs with green heels
October 8, 2011 at 5:26 pm
She has great style. She also faces the challenges of dressing for her somewhat thick in the middle body.I certainly hope she is watching her diet so she can continue to be a healthy and happy person. A great job of hiding what needs to be hidden, and spot lighting her assets!
June 15, 2012 at 10:04 am
i think she looks horrible, the skirt its too big, the hair its not cute, she wants to look like as she was a little girl, im sorry but i really hate it. i really like the picture but i dont like the outfit.
