Not often you see a lady of a certain age carry a balenciaga bag, AND makes it look chic, how is that possible?
She is amazing.

So you’re saying older people can’t carry something and make it look chic?? Get a life!

Love. Sleek, all black. Love
blue floppy hat

How do they all manage looking so good? I love the slouchiness of the clothes and bag which don’t take away from her elegance at all.

of a certain age?? what is that? more than 25?
November 18, 2006 at 5:43 pm
Yeah, really dislike it when people refer to “women of a certain age,” which implicitly salutes youth as THE measure.
Not meaning to mount the PC soapbox, but would people refer to “men of a certain age,” in other than an ironic way?
Woman here looks great. In some ways it IS better to be young; but sometimes age is besides the point…

This “lady of a certain age” still enjoys carrying her Balenciaga bag.
The woman in the picture does indeed pull of the whole look quite well.

Love the balance of masculine and feminine, here. Strong face, hair, pants, watch, shoe, stance, just right.
November 18, 2006 at 7:18 pm
This woman has a lot going for her even without the clothes.
I like the watch on her wrist. I don’t know about the shoes. Somehow they seem a bit off. Not that I can think of what kind of open toed shoes would look better.
I also like the ease of the shirt with the pants.

I’d also add that it’s a great picture. The long tall woman with the street posts in the background!

But she’s Susanna Cucco!!! the art director of Les Dieux du Stade. Of course elle est très chic!

How old is a “lady of a certain age?”
November 19, 2006 at 5:09 am
I love this look; it’s right up my alley. I think it’s a nice example of what’s called the “new minimalism”. It’s amazing what the “proper” basics can do.

Oh I like this. Unmistakable style, that overused word chic certainly comes to mind. Minimalism at its best.

she’s very chic – a masculine edge but she still looks very approachable

OMG, the shoes, the shoes, the shoes!!!!!

As a woman “of a certain age” myself, I will say that I wouldn’t trade being older for being younger on any day whatsoever. The gift of confidence that comes with age is a powerful accessory.

I don’t think The Sartorialist meant it in a negative way when he refers to her as “a lady of a certain age”.
November 20, 2006 at 11:11 am
She looks fantastic! Love her short sleek hair, which matches her sleek, simple, clean style.
November 21, 2006 at 2:52 pm
stunning- love you S.

I find this woman more striking than any other woman on the current scroll… as Coco Chanel said, if there is no woman, there is no dress. A minimal palette is perfect for this Modigliani muse – and the tan feet, what glorious life does she lead?
November 29, 2006 at 8:35 pm
She looks amazing. Like an elegant greyhound.

If it weren’t for the shoes, I would have thought . . Wow, this is a chic man!

She does indeed look wonderful. Very elegant, and very modern. Oh, and I see nothing wrong with the wording ” of a certain age”. She is not young, and that is what the poster meant. he could have written “mature” or whatever else, but there is no reason to be offended if offense is not meant. And anyone that doesn’t wish they were young is a either liar or else not yet 45 yrs old. Its especially cute when young people say they look forward to aging!
This woman looks marvelous, even though the girl next to her in the American Apparel commercial, who is not elegant, or even dressed, is healthier, and more attractive, and likely happier. But she will grow old too.
