She looks fantastic! There is something slightly unexpected about an open-toe shoe with a warm jacket, and I love it.
This is a qualm I used to face in NY when I was going out at night to meet friends in the colder months. I was brainwashed by my midwest mom that I could never wear an open-toe in cold weather, but secretly I knew that it must be possible! It’s great to see it during the day in this case!

Appropriate footwear would make the look.

This outfit is attainable rather than aspirational (that said, I have no idea how much this particular coat costs). The general gist of it, however, is casual style and it’s very nice…even with “skinny jeans.”

The YSL Muse in Ostrich…that looks really expensive.
Is that Amanda Brooks? Her eyes are piercing. Meanwhile I like the jacket but then immediately saw the open-toed shoes. They’re chunky enough for the jacket but not the right season.

She looks cute for September, but last week it was 7 degrees some mornings in New York and therefore looks ridiculous. Bare Hands? Bare Toes? Ugh.

It always annoys me when someone dresses for winter up top and sports bare feet as if it’s mild weather below.

I luv Amanda’s outfit. Very Chic!!!!

I find her outfit a bit too mix-and-matchy, and considering how cold it was during Fashion Week, I wonder if that coat alone kept her warm? Liked the jacket though- it looks very plush and well made.

Perhaps Tods could throw in some stockings for this miss? Great look but those toes have got to be froze!

i do like her top underneath the jacket
February 14, 2007 at 11:13 am
I love the jacket! And the shoes, but not for that kind of weather.

Amanda Cutter Brooks looks fabulous as usual! And as for the open toe shoes: fashion SHOULDN’T be practical. So what if she’s freezing? She looks great!

Open toes is winter is just stupid. Just like wearing a Parka in July. Your midwestern mom had the right idea.

Loving the outfit, but the open toed shoes make it look a little off.
February 14, 2007 at 12:38 pm
Great style. She looks absolutely gorgeous.
February 14, 2007 at 1:30 pm
this girl must have been freezing with those open toed shoes
February 14, 2007 at 3:06 pm
I have that bag!!
I agree that the shoes are not for NY weather right now.

I just wanted to say Happy Snowy Valentine’s Day Sart! from NY! lots of kisses!
shes looks great and I love the jacket so gorgeous!!!
February 14, 2007 at 4:19 pm
As I said before, she looks great, but she could still look great with the right shoe for that kind of weather! If she had the shoe for winter she would be looking fantastic!

I gather from the comments that this person is a fashion personality? Those shoes really anchor her in fashion victim territory. Good fashion often reflects the capacity to think out-of-the-box. But this looks more like a feeble attempt to say “look at me.” Pity, because as lovely as she is, she doesn’t need such gimmicks.haapi

Wow, love that jacket.
Tend to agree with the shoe comments – have heard that the past few days have been less cold (but was this an older pic?), but even so, I struggle with season-inappropriate clothing.
You feel like saying, “Yes, you look fabulous, we’re all looking at you…but now put some woolen socks and gloves on! Please!”
February 14, 2007 at 6:24 pm
The coat and the sweater look great. All she needs is a nice pair of boots.
February 14, 2007 at 9:45 pm
She looks wonderful but…golly…that’s an expensive outfit.
February 14, 2007 at 10:23 pm
I loose interest fast!
February 15, 2007 at 10:08 am
La veste doublée avec des escarpins ouverts.. Il faut avoir beaucoup de classe pour l’assumer… Le jean est superbe, l’allure folle…
February 15, 2007 at 11:48 am
The shoes makes it.
February 15, 2007 at 2:20 pm
I would love this if I didn’t know that it was freezing when she wore those shoes! I hope she only had to hop into a nearby car.

everything’s too matchy, like her shoes, purse, and the jacket are all brown. not too crazy about this look, although her white top is simply fabulous.

My midwestern mom also believes in wearing holiday-inspired sweaters with “seasonally appropriate” embroidery. God love her. ;)
Some people don’t mind cold extremities. For instance, I often don’t wear gloves in the winter, leaving my fingers exposed. I really don’t see the difference. And before anyone says it, my coat doesn’t have pockets, so I don’t shove my exposed fingers into them to get warm.
If we’re going to give props to 20 year-olds who dress like grannys and 75 year-olds who dress like kids or like leopards, then can’t we give her a break on the shoe choice? ;)

I think she looks really good. Put together and matching in a cooler way than we are use to saying, it isn’t matchy it just matches. Which is actually a little refreshing considering how unpopular matching has become (I don’t personally like matching, for the record, but it works on her). About the shoe choice, I think its moot. While she must have been cold when outside, she obvioulsy wasn’t trekking far from her chauffered escalade into the tents. AND my theroy has always been that I never feel particularly warm despite bundling up, so if I feel better in something that isn’t *completely* seasonally appropriate, why not?

love this pic
February 18, 2007 at 11:50 pm
Can anyone tell me who makes that bag she’s carrying?
August 11, 2007 at 1:29 pm
kristy, it’s YSL.

If her hair were pulled back, it would make the look sexier.
