This is the way to wear a scarf. Hallelujah.
January 3, 2007 at 9:41 am
goodness, i cannot get enough of these boxy coats. i must have one!
January 3, 2007 at 10:02 am
Wow. Wow. Wow. She looks fantastic.
January 3, 2007 at 10:18 am
I l o v e that look!! I don’t know how this pattern is called in English, but I have a coat with the same one and now I wished mine would be just as big or BIGGER? Never mind, I love her coat and the XL-scarf with it. She has such looong legs. Edgy look! *love*

Delicate bones, bold print. Nice contrast. I’m new to this sartorial thing but I’m starting to get the proportion groove
January 3, 2007 at 10:43 am
the boots are just gorgeous
January 3, 2007 at 10:48 am
I agree. The size of the pattern works. The shape of the coat also helps to balance her figure. Maybe I would have colorful tights or gloves.
January 3, 2007 at 10:49 am
Simply beautiful, there’s not much else to say.
January 3, 2007 at 11:32 am
This silhouette is perfect! And she has such a radiant glow.
January 3, 2007 at 11:59 am
She totally looks like Sarah Jessica Parker, or is it me?? Wow, I am a little worried that she is so thin, but a very nice take on the houndstooth coat indeed.
Would anyone dare mix color with this?
January 3, 2007 at 12:09 pm
love the contrast between the black boots, trousers, scarf and the beautiful coat.
what does “DVF” stand for?
January 3, 2007 at 12:25 pm
LOVE the entire look–BEAUTIFUL GIRL.
January 3, 2007 at 12:56 pm
The print is a take on the original houndstooth pattern. I think it looks great. It is hugely coming back in style. BUT her legs… Her legs look like my arms and they are wrapped in black tights. I would be afraid to see those limbs sans hose. Gosh…what is going on with these girls!?!
January 3, 2007 at 2:25 pm
I love love the giant houndstooth pattern. I also like her boots! good job…
January 3, 2007 at 3:08 pm
How do you get your legs that skinny?
All jokes aside, she looks fantastic.
January 3, 2007 at 3:22 pm
she is gorgeous. lucky you there wasn’t a lamppost that hid her. are there actually boots that fit thin [I mean super skinny] girls?
January 3, 2007 at 3:41 pm
Have you thought about shooting outside of Conde Nast? you would get some GREAT shots there.
January 3, 2007 at 3:51 pm
Could she be any skinnier?? Beautiful coat…DVF’s last collection was a tour de force.
January 3, 2007 at 4:05 pm
I cannot appreciate this look on someone her age. Looks like someone got into granny’s closet
January 3, 2007 at 4:31 pm
The girl is extremely pretty and the coat – although so characteristic – doesn’t dominate her but accentuates personality. I love it! :)
She looks like a gorgeous ad for a Sydney department store: David Jones. The herringbone pattern is their logo.
There are those who can carry off large patterns with ease. There are those who can’t.
Here is an example of one who can.
January 3, 2007 at 4:54 pm
I don’t usually like to comment on people’s sizes but I do hope she plans to eat a little more in 2007. Other than that (and I do apologize for that), she looks really, really fabulous.
January 3, 2007 at 5:22 pm
January 3, 2007 at 6:14 pm
Look at them legs, wowza.
January 3, 2007 at 6:19 pm
Striking! She looks like a petite girl with massive style! Love the 60′s vibe!
January 3, 2007 at 6:23 pm
Wow, this is the slightest woman yet. I can’t look at her clothes for wondering how she’s staying vertical. New Yorkers need to eat!
January 3, 2007 at 6:39 pm
January 3, 2007 at 7:33 pm
Great! Looking good, young miss.This is a healthy and happy animal. Thanks for that, Sart. – JCH
January 3, 2007 at 7:54 pm
The oversize shape of the jacket really emphasizes her skinny legs.
I think you are right about a larger pattern.
January 3, 2007 at 8:04 pm
aside from skinny legs, did anyone notice how pretty she is? she’s adorable, and i love her whole look. so cute! at first I thought she was SJP.
January 3, 2007 at 8:11 pm
its a beautiful coat!!! I loved the houndstooth pattern for years now – its a classic!but I agree with the others – her looks like painfully thin!more curvy gal pics pls!!
January 3, 2007 at 8:22 pm
beautiful coat, awesome boots…but the first thing I noticed how skinny she was..though thats fabulous too.
January 3, 2007 at 8:23 pm
one day I’ll know my houndstooth from my herringbone:-)
January 3, 2007 at 9:51 pm
I love the combination of the oversize top silhouette with the ultra thin legs.
January 3, 2007 at 11:45 pm
What great proportions! Her legs go on for days.
January 4, 2007 at 12:22 am
January 4, 2007 at 12:39 am
great combination…and somehow she gives off a presence like she looks this good everyday…
January 4, 2007 at 3:39 am
She is beautiful and pulls off her style perfectly – coat, scarf, boots, makeup – a class act. But the contrast to her extremely, extremely skinny legs is almost too brutal for my liking. Is this a look that appeals more to women than to men?
January 4, 2007 at 5:21 am
Ages searching a coat with that pattern…and still haven’t find it! :(
January 4, 2007 at 5:35 am
wow. simply gorgeous. beautiful and chic.
January 4, 2007 at 5:41 am
She looks amazing … I actually find it disgusting that posters feel they have the right to criticise her weight … if she was overweight nobody would dare state that she should lose a few pounds so how the hell can anyone say, “I do hope she plans to eat a little more in 2007″ … this blog is about fashion, not about critiquing peoples weight – you don’t know anything about this girl … think before you judge.
January 4, 2007 at 6:57 am
Fabulous well balanced well put together look. Love the huge houndstooth coat. But like many others here I also worry about her obvious emaciation. Too thin is not good.
January 4, 2007 at 8:31 am
In Sweden, these coats are sold EVERYWHERE, Zara, H&M, VeroModa, GinaTricot – which is all the cheap chain stores. There are also dresses, tops, cardigans, hats, everything in that big houndstooth pattern. Of course I grabbed a coat when it first came out. But now I am sooo sick of it! Would never ever wear my coat.
And yes, It looks like that girl has to put all her energy into standing up straight. Take it from someone who looks and does the same.
January 4, 2007 at 9:48 am
In response to Anonymous who posted at 5:41 a.m., I have to admit that when I first commented on this look yesterday, I also made mention of this young woman’s thin sticks and how she obviously needs to eat a sandwich. But I immediately regretted it when I realized that a) one of my closest friends is easily as thin as the girl shown here and she eats about 4 times what I do – she’s just naturally skinny with a fast metabolism – and I know how it cheeses her off when everyone assumes she’s got an eating disorder and b) another friend was photographed for the Sartorialist earlier in the week and told me how hurt she was by the insensitive comments people posted about her facial expression, looks, etc. and that had she known her photo was going to be posted on a public website where anyone could comment on it, she would never have agreed to pose. Both of which make me feel compelled to remind people – myself included – that many of the people shown here do, indeed, read the site, so erring on the side of kindness (or at least tactfulness – and again, I am as guilty of being snarky as the next person) is probably the wiser – and nicer – thing to do. The problem is, the whole point of this site is to showcase and then disseminate people’s style and fashion sense, and a person’s height/weight/bearing, etc. does play into all of that, especially in the case of a photo like this, where it is all about proportion, and the proportions are so extreme. I’m not sure if there’s a solution, but I just wanted to bring it up, as it would be a shame if people stopped agreeing to be shot for the site because they were worried they’d get slagged off by strangers.
January 4, 2007 at 11:02 am
Houndstooth is the new black. Love.
January 4, 2007 at 11:41 am
I think it’s admirable that you came back on & re-posted … It’s so easy to critique people especially when it comes to weight … we now seem to live in the anti-thin world these days … I love this blog but whenever someone thin is fetaured on it they get ripped apart whether male or female … i work in the fashion industry & many of my friends are models – male & female … if you’re a 20 year old female pushing 6ft – chances are you’re going to be super skinny … this doesn’t mean you have an eating disorder … i’m super thin & probably eat more than any other person i know …. i think people have to realise that thin DOES NOT equal eating disorder / body issues … this is america, so surely we are all free to look how we please …. thin or overweight!
one last thing – a couple of my friends have bn featured on here … the last one being back in summer … although the comments were pretty nice, he (yes, he) got slated for being to thin … remember – the ppl who are photographed read this site so maybe some ppl have to be a bit more tactful … criticise clothing – fine! criticising weight – not fine!
January 4, 2007 at 1:18 pm
ok, i’ve been friends with this girl for a long time and first of all: you look gorgeous, sweetie! (and yes, she does look that fashionable and fabulous on a daily basis!) secondly: this shouldn’t be a forum about her weight. she’s a ballerina, she takes good care of herself and she looks amazing!
January 4, 2007 at 2:24 pm
I also think it is great that fashion 60 re-posted.
I often have a tough time deciding what posts to moderate but I often let some posts that are a bit controversial get posted b/c I think it creates a great discussion and I’m very proud that the discussions are usually very tastefully done.
I am also glad that we police ourselves a bit and we almost always get to hear two sides of an issue
finally I agree that we have to be aware that a very high percentage of the people I shoot end up seeing the post – we should be mindful of that. lets not make the comments personal.
I have a great audience!!
January 4, 2007 at 3:32 pm
Love the look!
January 4, 2007 at 3:54 pm
Did it occur to everyone who thinks she is way to scinny, that it might be natural?? She might have a very fast metabolism, as I do. Perhaps she is a model a needs to walk everywhere and stress to go to work and castings.. Would you comment on someone beeing to fat?..
Apart from this, she actually pulls of a pattern that I’m sick of. I’ve sen it to much. But she looks amazing. :)
January 4, 2007 at 5:00 pm
Well, when I’m wrong I like to own up to it.
On this same note, I think it’s ironic that everyone is commenting on this woman’s size (too thin) and I’ve seen other posts on today’s photo of the woman from Miami (with geometric bag/asymmetrical skirt) criticizing her for choosing a skirt that makes her thighs look too big. We really just can’t win with this body image thing, can we? I feel like everyone in our society is so conflicted about this issue.
January 5, 2007 at 12:20 am
So, she is a dancer. Ballet, her friend says.
I dated a girl from NYC Ballet once upon a time. One of the healthiest women I ever met. I can still see her in a bikini, in my mind’s eye. Unforgettably beautiful. The gods smiled on me when they brought her into view.
No wonder this girl looks like a healthy and happy animal. All those classes and rehearsals everyday, doing what she loves with her body, while she can. So her job demands and keeps her thin…and strong, agile, graceful, and smiling too.
January 5, 2007 at 8:58 pm
does anyone know where i could find boots like those?
January 6, 2007 at 3:24 pm
beautiful!!! except for that scarf!! it looks like it is ready to swallow her. i don’t understand this big scarf look, especially on slim or petite women.
January 6, 2007 at 8:00 pm
what’s her name? I’m in loooove.
January 7, 2007 at 7:32 pm
OMG, she looks gorgeous
January 8, 2007 at 8:22 am
Is it hopeless to try and track down the coat at this late date? I’ve been googling like mad, but still no luck. Any hints? I’m totally converted on houndstooth… wish I had seen this picture 4 months ago!
January 8, 2007 at 8:05 pm
this woman basically screams chic, or at least the clothes do, esp that jacket
January 9, 2007 at 6:53 pm
She is drop dead gorgeous. I love her, and I’m a heterosexual female.
And her proportions: wondferful. Beautiful.
If I were a ballerina, I would play up my ballerina-ness, as she has. Her coat is covetable; the way she has thrown the large scarf over her shoulder is chic; and her legs are adorable!!!
Large scarves: they are warmer, and easier to manipulate.
Largeness on petite proportions: skinny doesn’t mean petite, and skinny and tall together is gorgeous. People shouldn’t be afraid to emphasize their traits as opposed to trying (hopelessly) to make them “blend in.”
January 10, 2007 at 8:13 am
She is a beautiful young lady, concerned about how thin she really is under all those top layers! Her legs are a sure indicator that the rest of her body could be in some severe malnourishment state.
Perhaps, we should be less concerend about what one is saying about our “fashion sense” and pay more attention to the needs of our physical being! She looks like she needs to spend some of the dollars she is spending on fashion and use it instead on good nutritional choices/health care.
January 21, 2007 at 3:54 pm
ah j’adoree le pied de poule c’est le must de cet hiver
