I love this photo for a number of reasons:
1. This is an example of wearing trends(extreame versions) straight off the runway and making them work togeather.
2. I love the color of her skirt. I can not get enough of that shade of green. I think that shade is called kelly green(?).
3. How lucky is she to have such a small waist.
4. I love those Nicole Richies. In my city people have taken to call all extra large sunglasses Nicole Riches.
5. Stat is such a talented photographer.

The dress looks like a piece from McQueen’s Fall 07 collection and she pulls it off nice- casually.

What a beautiful female form on this young lady. The outfit hasgreat elan. I love the contrast of the simplicity of her outfit the messy Bardot-style hair. She is beautiful. Subtle allure is always more sexy than blatant advertisment. As always, xxoo

I love this shot, one of the best yet! I don’t even know what to admire first: the skirt, the shoes or eyeglasses. Everything put together so well and with such a great sense of style! And, of course, the picture itself is a little work of art.

I just love the mix of the luxe skirt and casual tee.
June 26, 2007 at 7:07 pm
ahh im in love! i am craving a skirt like that right now.
June 26, 2007 at 7:18 pm
wow, what a chic look. it echoes of early autumn but it works so well, even in late june! i love the shape of the skirt, so flattering. and the way it’s paired with that t-shirt, its surprisingly elegant yet relaxed.

She looks like a sweet little human tulip, from the structured skirt to the little pinched pout. It has a whimsical feeling without being immature. A new way to do summer!
June 26, 2007 at 7:39 pm
This is heaven.
June 26, 2007 at 7:42 pm
I think that shade is called kelly green(?).
Actually Kelly green usually is used to describe a bright, grass green. I’d describe this color as Pine, forest green or hunter green (YMMV depending on your monitor).
This is a nice look, regardless.

Perfect shoes for the dress.
June 26, 2007 at 7:54 pm
awesome balance of structure and textures!

The exaggerated puff of the skirt nicely defined her slim waist and gorgeous legs.

Terrific dress, like both the skirt/top shaping/fluidity and the elegant colors; pretty woman.
With the toe-in stance (when will this die out?) and the glasses, I think of Lolita, but did even Lolita toe in? Lollypop missing.Not to pick on this lady, as a fair percentage of females photo’d on the Sartorialist over the past months do this; I just don’t get it.

GWENETH!?but only better
June 26, 2007 at 8:49 pm
sexy. she makes this work and she’s managed to pull this off WITHOUT looking twenty pounds heavier than she is!
good on her:)
June 26, 2007 at 9:05 pm
Must. Have. That. Skirt.
June 26, 2007 at 9:18 pm
That’s the shade of green I really like.. And that skirt’s interesting.. Something that I could pull off??
June 26, 2007 at 9:19 pm
Is that an Alaia skirt? Love the outfit.
June 26, 2007 at 9:26 pm
Just impeccable style!
June 26, 2007 at 9:38 pm
this is an absolutely perfect way to bring a silhouetted shape to the streets without the pretense. the pumps add just the right amount of weight to proportion such a robust skirt.
she looks cool, comfortable and stylishly collected.
….as she should, just a stones throw from such a fashionable house.

Egads! The attempt at dressing down the (wonderful) skirt falls flat.
It’s some combination of the sheer shirt with not enough bra support underneath and the shoes.
Would have liked to see the clutch though. It’s really hard to go wrong with a clutch.
June 26, 2007 at 10:29 pm
this is really fantastic — the skirt is so structured and has a rather extreme shape, so it could easily upstage the wearer, yet in this case it doesn’t. She totally WEARS this, and I love that she paired it with a simple t-shirt and minimal accessories, simple hair and clean make-up. This would be nowhere as lovely if she loaded on even one extra trend — this way it is modern and classic at once. Also, this is a great example of a savvy woman wearing the trends that perfectly suit her figure. Love it, can’t you tell?

This high waistline of the skirt flatters her body,but at the same time it does the opposite to her legs.Maybe the shoes are too heavy.The way her hair hangs natural the shoes needen´t be so sturdy.
June 26, 2007 at 11:07 pm
this is gorgeous–I love the casual hair and t-shirt with the high design and strict structure of the skirt. fab waist.
June 26, 2007 at 11:10 pm
I am really liking the exaggerated fit & flare shape of the skirt. And that grey slouchy tee looks so cozy. And the killer heels rock too!
June 26, 2007 at 11:28 pm
she looks like gwyneth a bit…nice shoes!
June 26, 2007 at 11:30 pm
she looks great, that skirt is awesome.
June 26, 2007 at 11:40 pm
The shoes, The sunglasses, The clutch, The skirt+T-shirt/dress, The colors, The bracelets, The necklaces.
Perfect. This is what I call a look cut out of a fashion magazine and working out extremely good in real life.
Although there is one point I have to question about this, the womans smile/face gesture.
Sart, this is another fantastic shot!

that skirt is a knockout. it IS the outfit. love how she paired it with a T. perfectly understated. it lets the skirt work it’s magic. there’s no competition within the look. smart woman!

Ah ! My heart skipped a beat when I saw this photo. It’s beautiful. The structure and formality of the skirt paired back to the t-shirt. Pulled off flawlessly. An amazing photo.

divine….absolutely amazing, her hair with it. just the right amount of pouf volume, the perfect combo of casual and dress, i want it now!

So carefully and beautful stile, but the hair solely washt.My Cutwalk
June 27, 2007 at 6:11 am
Does anybody have any idea where that beautiful skirt is from?
June 27, 2007 at 7:59 am
I can’t add anything new to what has already been said – she’s wonderful!
June 27, 2007 at 8:23 am
So chic she makes me wanna cry. This is what many Paltrow wannabees yearn to look like.
June 27, 2007 at 9:51 am
The gold bangles, the tulip shape, the tissue tee: all work beautifully to evoke casual cool. She’s got a great eye and sophisticated sense of style. Love it!
June 27, 2007 at 9:53 am
talk about hard to pull off – kudos to this lady for going for it and balancing that statement skirt beautifully.
June 27, 2007 at 10:08 am
This is Julia Von Boehm, stylist for French Vogue. She’s wonderful. You can see her personal style comes through in her work.
June 27, 2007 at 10:29 am
who makes the skirt…i want one too!
June 27, 2007 at 10:36 am
So beautifully structural – reminds me of vintage Balenciaga or Christian Dior’s tulip line. And as asian models said, a great example of a full skirt that sets off her waist and legs w/o at all making her look hippy.
June 27, 2007 at 10:47 am
she looks awesome. period.
June 27, 2007 at 11:02 am
I love this and I am inspired
June 27, 2007 at 11:43 am
I think that the skirt is absolutly fantastic, and it looks great with the simple gray tee.
simple, yet oh so sophisticated.
June 27, 2007 at 12:23 pm
it’s unbelievable how wondrful she looks! wonderful photographer and good style combination works!
June 27, 2007 at 12:55 pm
Couldn’t be more perfect.
June 27, 2007 at 1:40 pm
It´s so great to see extreme yet simple options outside a fashion editorial.She makes the combination work for her.
It would be so nice to be a lot of girls dressed so nice, instead of the everyday same-olds we usually see.

bellycapelli says: i don`t know why but these shoes just don`t work for me. ich mag sie nicht.
June 27, 2007 at 3:32 pm
as usual, people forget that alaia’s high waisted skirts have to be worn with either very short knits or a ‘body’ so you don’t get the wrinkled t shirt effect. i am shocked by the lack of knowledge of the comments( well, it does look like a mcqueen skirt but that mcqueen skirt might come from somewhere else…) and how easily people get impressed when the outfit is not straight from h&m. cute chick though.
June 27, 2007 at 5:03 pm
I think that is julia von boehm, carine’s ex-assistant
June 27, 2007 at 5:40 pm
Absolutely amazing skirt and top. She looks cute but with an edge too it that really makes the look. There is one but… weirdly, I don’t like the shoes. I say weirdly because in their they should suit the outfit but somehow they look too chunky.
June 27, 2007 at 6:29 pm
Beautiful shoes with an impressive effect on her legs. The color of the skirt adds much charm to the casual/chic look.
June 27, 2007 at 7:19 pm
the scirt is great!
June 27, 2007 at 9:33 pm
Nice look, though I agree with what anon said about Alaia’s and the wrinkle effect.

alaia’s high waisted skirts “have to” be worn with short knits or a body?
Who says? You, anon 3:32?
Glad fashion and what people wear is a democratic endeavor and not a dictatorship.
Plenty of people on this blog like what she is wearing and recognize quality, whoever the designer.
June 28, 2007 at 4:50 pm
im in love with her shoesluv luv luv
June 28, 2007 at 10:58 pm
kinda looks like she’s wearing a melted funnel… she’s a beautiful woman though and carries it with confidence.
June 30, 2007 at 7:36 pm
god I want this skirt. so bad.
July 1, 2007 at 2:43 pm
This looks is faultless, the shirt, on many would look ridiculous, but on her looks impeccable and sher carries is perfectly, and love the combo of it with the casual, grungesque tee, perfect!
July 2, 2007 at 12:48 pm
of course it’s alaia and of course this is a picture of Julia VB Carine’s ex assistant
