Mcqueen suitRED BIRKIN BAGOoooh la la…she’ probably wearing 5 – 10,000 dollars worth of stuff but she doesn’t really look it. It’s understated chic though….i guess that’s a good thing.
November 8, 2006 at 8:28 am
Sexy, but boardroom appropriate and of course great for lunch and shopping at Barney’s!She’s got it all!
November 8, 2006 at 8:38 am
Me encanta ¡parece una española en NY!

the legs, the heels, the silhouette . . . . . and then, when you’re still reeling, the knockout blow of those dimples in the middle of that luminous skin…

That woman could finance a house with the cost of her outifit.It’s classic investment banker, power suit type. This is what Condaleeza Rice wants to look like evey morning. This woman looks ten times better though (nothing against Condaleeza, of course).

so nice to see mcqueen’s tailoring in action.
November 8, 2006 at 9:31 am
If you’ve got the bod, McQueen has the…well, in this case, suit. Absolutely fetching!
November 8, 2006 at 9:41 am
What a classy look. Makes me want to tailor my own suits and get some sexier heels!
positively the same dame
killer! a head-to-toe knockout, and the way that skirt fits her is outrageous. how long do you figure it took her to get a cab?
November 8, 2006 at 10:08 am
Pencil skirt and heels – fabulous!
November 8, 2006 at 10:13 am
Now that is a great looking, beautiful, and classy woman! I would love to know more about her.
November 8, 2006 at 10:22 am
Great shot! Gorgeous woman looking fab – that suit! I would have liked to see a less UES-predictable bag than the Birkin, though. Picky, picky…(of course, I’d be happy to give the Birkin a nice new home – my home)
November 8, 2006 at 10:31 am
Lovely. Good to see a shot of a woman in a suit for a change.
November 8, 2006 at 10:51 am
Beautiful and classy. I love it.
November 8, 2006 at 11:04 am
Once again, classic elegance prevails…and with the sexy black pumps, possibly Jimmy Choo or Manolos, Fabulous! The splash of red completes the outfit! Love it!
November 8, 2006 at 11:49 am
I wish I could look that good when I go out on the town
November 8, 2006 at 12:26 pm
I love that the red of the bag stands out so much. I bet she carries it every day.
beautiful outfit , love the cut , love the color …. great pic Sart !!!

November 8, 2006 at 1:10 pm
Oh, my. This is what I’d like to be when I grow up. She uses neutrals well, and the Birkin gives a great pop of color.
November 8, 2006 at 1:20 pm
what a sexy powerwoman… like it alot.
November 8, 2006 at 1:46 pm
She is taking some chances standing in the middle of rush hour traffic . . . but she is certainly doing it in style. Alexander McQueen is quite simply phenomenal! I love his clothes!
November 8, 2006 at 2:13 pm
thanks for featuring a woman of color. I see so many of them with amazing style every day. they can wear color in ways that their paler counterparts could never pull off. i’d like to see more black lady style on here. you do a great job with the harlem sartorialists, now get up there on a sunday and let’s see some big hats and bright suits!
November 8, 2006 at 2:58 pm
A great look! And even though the suit is very conservative, it still shows off her beautiful legs! (*not a sexist comment, really! … I’m just an envious woman.*)
November 8, 2006 at 4:55 pm
WOWEEEEE!! I would drink this woman’s bathwater… Simply stunning tailoring and styling, the suit being a perfect compliment to her figure. It is wonderful to see a latina or woman of color, dressed to the nines, appreciated in this blog. Kudos, Sart!
November 8, 2006 at 5:26 pm
um, that’s a birkin-style bag, but it’s not the hermes birkin.
November 8, 2006 at 5:40 pm
looking again at that bag — now i think that it actually is hermes. the proportions are odd, though. did hermes come out with a new size in the birkin? sart, you were at the show — was there a new model?
November 8, 2006 at 5:45 pm
I agree with anon 2:13 Sart. It’s too bad that more black women haven’t been featured here, although the last few days have been great.
And I also like to see everyday stylish creative people more than the professional fashionistas or very rich. But they can be fun too.
November 8, 2006 at 6:22 pm
This is absolutely perfect. My favorite pic yet. She is absolutely gorgeous.
November 8, 2006 at 6:39 pm
Two words: Sex ay
It’s like a Pussy Cat Dolls Powersuit.
November 8, 2006 at 6:46 pm
gorgeous! love how her skirt fits so nicely!!
November 8, 2006 at 7:15 pm
brava, what a fantastic suit, she looks fantastic – less fashion-y than so many women on this blog, but just as chic and stylish.
positively the same dame – it looks like a birkin to me… albeit one with the flap tucked in (the most practical way to carry one) and a little over-full….please elaborate if we’re all wrong though!
November 8, 2006 at 7:38 pm
To positively the same dame 5:26 pm; It’s Real.
November 8, 2006 at 7:52 pm
she is what i want to be when i grow up.
November 8, 2006 at 8:14 pm
gorgeous silhouette… look at her legs, the way they look with those heels…
November 8, 2006 at 8:20 pm
To anon 8:22-Newflash-the bag alone is worth 5- 10 grand!ka-ching, ka-ching!!!
November 8, 2006 at 9:10 pm
Who is she!
November 8, 2006 at 9:30 pm
A Queen Bee in McQueen!
November 8, 2006 at 10:23 pm
Now that’s why we live in NYC! Sexy, modern, strong…and gorgeous. And hailing a cab no less.
God I love New York.
November 8, 2006 at 10:30 pm
Love the suit, the shoes, the red bag, her hair. Love it all.
November 9, 2006 at 2:30 am
I really like the fact that she’s wearing the down payment on a house, but doesn’t look ostentatious; she just looks great. I always have to work the other way, trying to make those flea market jackets look like a million bucks!
November 9, 2006 at 3:46 am
yes, you’re right — i thought it might be some new hermes hybrid — a sort of cross between the gaultier and 35mm birkin, but it’s just full and therefore pulled a bit wide, making it look a bit blocky.

Perfect. This proves how much impact a great below-the-knee pencil skirt can have.

November 9, 2006 at 9:56 am
the look would be nothing without THE bag.am happy i see red bags everywhere, i’m still carrying my huge red celine from last spring!
November 9, 2006 at 10:46 am
You have to love a woman in a fitted knee length skirt and high heels. Few things are more attractive than that!
November 9, 2006 at 12:24 pm
Obviously a woman to be reckoned with and she’s doing it in heels and a hubba-hubba suit. Fully engaged and engaging…. mommies let your girls to grow up to be this chick.
November 9, 2006 at 1:40 pm
some looks are better than others and some are just one step above. This fantastic lady, together with the gentleman with leopard gloves and the couple “grey&green at tiffany’s” , is definitely part of the “superior” group!!!
November 9, 2006 at 2:21 pm
Absoloutely gorgeous. Radiant. Beautiful. Wears her clothing elegantly and with ease. I would love to see more of her and her style. Photos like this would only enhance this blog?
Who is this dynamic looking woman?
November 9, 2006 at 6:34 pm
it’s not so much the clothes as who and how you wear it…. this woman could be wrap in a burlap sack tight and still look splendid…why, with that bod, the hair, skin, smile….everything about her exudes sensuality and that it’s powerful….. really, what a change from all the other ladies portrayed here….no offense, but not many carry themselves the way this one does….
Quelle chique!! (I don’t know whether that is spelled right, but that is what I thought when I saw the photo) That is so classic chique.

Her name is Crystal McCrary Anthony. She is a lawyer and an author. She co-hosted The View on Friday, November 10. She also co-hosted My Two Cents on Bet J. She is very stylish lady.
November 10, 2006 at 1:31 pm
With regards to the comment from annonymous 6:34 PM
maybe she would not carry herself in such a wonderfull way if she wasn’t getting the self assurance and confidence you feel when you wear those clothes / accessories…
November 10, 2006 at 6:58 pm
WOW, what a woman!
November 11, 2006 at 1:05 am
Sexy, yet no nonsense utilitarian chic. Less is more at it’s finest. So NY!!
November 11, 2006 at 10:15 pm
This is her website. I read Gotham Diaries, the book she co-authored with Spike Lee’s wife. Ms. Anthony is also ESPN NBA Analyst Greg Anthony’s ex-wife. She is the kind of woman I want to marry, beauty, intelligence, humility, etc.
November 12, 2006 at 6:54 am
CHIC. That is all.
November 14, 2006 at 7:16 pm
This is uncanny! I’m working on a post by her right now!! I’ll link to this post..
November 15, 2006 at 4:05 pm
She is the standard by which all women should use as an example of tast, elegance and style.
November 17, 2006 at 12:05 pm
Crystal McCrary Anthony is the epitome of elegance and class! More post like these!
November 28, 2006 at 10:35 pm
Crystal is funny, down to earth, so sexy, highly intelligent, incredibly articulate and looks like a million dollars. I LOVE her on “My Two Cents” nd now I’m motivated to read her two books.

I really like the look on Ms. Anthony. It is professional looking, but yet sexy. It looks very good on her.
May 23, 2007 at 12:51 am
If my eyes don’t deceive me this is Crystal McCrary Anthony. She’s an Attorney/ Television personality/ Producer/ Author, wow that was more slashes then I thought it would be. Could you see the excitement as I wrote that out? I am so madly in love with this woman and the aura she exudes, a beautiful, intelligent, sophisticated, stylish black woman. Who says Claire Huxtable is a fictional character?
January 9, 2010 at 10:04 pm
She's BEAUTIFUL! And yes, I have to agree. Claire Huxtable at her finest. Werk!
August 15, 2011 at 1:09 pm
Not enough words to describe how SIMPLY beautiful she is. The only showing is her face, hands and 1/4 of her leg. I have found my wife and she hands down surpasses the young women out here
