    She looks absolutely stunning! The dress is so elegant. It looks like a large scarf that she successfully manipulated – twisted and turned – into that wonderful dress!

    Nice volumes. I see from your Milan photos that the pigeon-toed pose has started to vanish! Finally. One of the people who post here commented on my blog that a certain reporter made a comment about the pigeon-toe pose on her column in NY Post and attributed the origin to my comment on your post about the Le Figaro editor! I wish I could take credit but it was surely coming seeing all these grown up women standing like little girl blues in their most adult get ups! Bravo once more for your great pics Sart!

    Recently, it seems like these wonderful hairstyles are really completing the outfits – and this is no exception. I’m also enjoying the really strong boots against the looseness of the dress.

    All black still looks damn good! I love that dress. Is it a dress with a wrap incorporated? Love the rough edge, goes perfectly with the boots. She looks fabulous!

    She’s a beautiful girl, and that dress looks great on her, but I wish she had broken the goth black with a different pair of shoes and in a different colour. That would’ve done it.

    Wow those boots. She looks like she’s doing a glamourous take on goth/biker girl. I love the top.

    This is a great example of modernizing classics. This woman has taken black and used many interesting shapes and details that keep it from being boring or age-y. I love that her dress reflects the current trends (sack dress) but does not make her look like a fashion victim. The dress has just enough shape that it keeps her from looking like a bag lady.

    The wedged boots w/ buckles are also eye-catching. I’ve been looking for motorcycle boots that won’t make me look like a hard-core biker chick if that makes any sense. These boots are perfectly “hard core” without making this women look like she’s off to a rally and they look like they’d be quite versatile.

    I really want those boots!

    dear sart,

    please tell men.style.com that they have to allow for your pictures to be enlarged by clicking (like you have done on your site). it’s such an addiction once you get used to the detail…

    thanks so much for the amazing work!

    What a difference form last season. Goth allure rules the dames of yesterday. So many dark warriors (bataglia for la Bataglia).

    I think she needs a pattern or color pronto. Anyhow I prefer her former look. Not very much like her…where are the sexy legs and shoes?

    Hey Scott,

    When in Italy, can you find out if any of the Italian designers are outsourcing to China. I have heard that many are using this country to get a bulk of their RTW stuff to market.
    I heard a nasty rumour that Armani has a tuxedo factory humming along nicely in Shanghai .

    Wicked boots.

    I am sorry, but I dont get the fraying at the hem — or lack there of.

    Why did I bother to bring along a needle and thread to finish up my 4-H entry in the car on the trip to the county fair? I could have been setting trends WAY back! :-)

    Those are of course the uber-cool Louis Vuitton boots that I would kill for. And she has nice hair, too. Thanks for this photo Sart, I am going to the hairdresser’s at the weekend and was just looking for something that might inspire me and I’ve finally found it.

    She’s relaxed and ready to move, spiffy boots and all. The all black is fine with me, presented in such a carefree stance
    .
    I hope the bangs can blow in the wind – they’re my only frowning point.

    Giovanna looks thrilled to be posing for you. As well she should be, after all your divine shots from last season!
    I also like how you captured her in the background of one of your Style.com photos giving you the peace sign. Props!

    A few of you aren’t happy with the hair, but I love it. The bangs give it some kick. I’m tired of seeing long hair for the sake of long hair… I like that she’s done something a bit different with it.

    And, the outfit is just perfect.

    I adore absolutely EVERYTHING about this girl’s look. The soft, yet beautifully shaped dress, the kick @ss boots, and her hair! Her hair is stunning, and to me, it pulls her look completely together…the icing on the cake.
