    Come on.. What did you say to make her laugh so hard??

    Absolutely delightful.

    To capture such emotion in a shot takes true talent.

    Wow, she is so cute. Nice styling (sure, it’s Marni, what else? ;-) and above all her natural smile. Dear working-at-Marni-beauty, you do a good job on your appearance.

    I love the necklace (thought it was enameled copper at first)

    Her shoes and the fact that she is wearing pockets though she has hips.

    I wish I could figure out how to pull off dresses with pockets without looking so frumpy.

    Love Marni, but look would work better with the higher heeled version of this Marni shoe. it would help enlongate the look.

    It has an interesting and intellectual look to it; a mix of preppy librarian with urban hipster style. The sweater set and skirt length are very conservative but her knee high stockings and chunky shoes add a little twist to the ensemble.

    I love it. I think she looks gorgeous.

    Contagious smile! None of that stoic pretentious nonsense.

    I personally loved the way she buttoned her cardigan, but I have to say that in this instance it’s the girl that makes the clothes, not the clothes that makes the girl.

    I am WILDLY, UNNATURALLY inspired by this look. The pieces are simple but amazingly classy and refreshing when put together. My question is – does fabric make a big difference in this look? If I copy the pieces but in regular, cheap stretch cotton, would I look horrible? I guess I won’t know until I try…

    It seems going by the comments that many don’t realise she’s dressed head to toe in Marni … It’s not chic vintage finds … It’s MARNI! That’s the labels style … & if you’ve got a few thousand $$$ spare then it can be your style too …

    The toe in stance again. And, I gather it is morphing to “the stance”.

    I see it as child-izing the person standing, often sophisticated otherwise.

    In the meantime, the lovely and vibrant Marni lady lilts, except for the toe routine.

    Simple and beautiful! Another example of how details, that work together, make a simple outfit shine.
    The dress and cardigan taken separately don’t look particularly exciting, but the shoes, necklace and those socks, pull the look together. Beautiful!

    The clunky shoes and knee socks make (made) her look frumpy.
