    nice!
    Do you think urban architecture plays a role in sartorial expressions?
    I say it does! I can not imagine this look in a “one story tall, totally spread U.S. city”, “strip mall” kind of thing.
    Only a good backdrop makes believable this type of expression.

    When would architects will take the role of cultural revolutionaries?!

    so chic. not so effortless but very studied. Why Not? Fashion is a subject and a sublime artform. She dresses up to go to war!

    Often people complain about how thin models are. Wonder if anyone would think Emmanuelle here looks too thin or whether she just looks like she should be served on a plate she’s that delicious!

    Yes, she looks great. Again the simplicity of all black is wonderful. Is she wearing open-toed booties? I can’t quite get into open-toe for autumn, but the subtlety of this pair is good.

    Again, amazing shot Scott. Love of course the peep toe high heel oxford platforms. Phew, that’s a lot to say about a shoe. What’s that bag she’s carrying? The short trench, the leggings and those shoes, INCROYABLE!

    The shoes–with the expanse of naked ankle–make it….

    Her shoes are exquisite. In them the platform, the lace-up, open-toed slingback and pump merge. I’ll bet she can wear them anywhere…

    Excellent work, Scott. Your shots from Monday in Le Jardin des Tuileries, featured at Style.com, are simply incredible. The autumn leaves. The Parisiens. Awesome.

    She’s very chic-always in pants or jeans, perfect balance to Carine’s feminine skirts. They are STARS!

    Wow, she’s incredible. It’s not what she’s wearing; it’s her cheekbones, long legs and how her hair brings out the expressiveness of her eyes.

    loving the granny shoes on the long slim legs and somehow the leggings here are not as obnoxiously trendy as usual

    She’s gorgeous. I also LOVED your new pics on style.com, especially the one of Ines de la Fressange, who looks for all the world like a 23-year old Audrey Hepburn. She’s actually 49! And Carine Roitfeld is over 50! Incroyable!

    I love those shoes!

    I hope this isn’t the start of a leggings thing.

    It’s one thing to see a model with nice legs wandering around without her skirt on, and another to see super-sized Middle America doing it!

    i don’t know whether to love her or thate her — ditto carine. i am roughly the same age as they are and frankly you can just kill me now. this isn’t aging with grace, this is aging without aging. there’s got to be a secret room somewhere with portraits of these two women with wrinkles and sagging jawlines. and if you’re not old enough to get that reference, you’ll never understand how simultaneously painful and pleasureable this photo actually is.

    Utterly perfect. How do they manage to look so perfect day in and day out? I much prefer their style to that of the American Vogue girls.

    With respect to positively the same dame’s comment. I am nudging their ages and I am sick and tired of negative limits and attitudes. I am about their size and build yet feel constrained by bourgeoise comments and “good taste” guidelines recommending beige and tasteful draping that remorselessly place ceilings not only on (all) people’s appearance but thought patterns and aesthetic expression. I am sure that if you minutely scrutinised these photos (which I have not) you would find so called flaws . These women have used skill and probably steely determination to concentrate on creating a positive image. They are aesthetically skilled. This is what they do for a crust. We must applaud their efforts and take heart, we are all of us in the gutter but some are looking at the stars. (Oscar Wilde)

    What I really love about your pictures is that people are so human:) I have nothing against models, but on a runway they look kind a…not real. But looking at pictures of yours it’s like – fantastic. I wish I could see people who dress like that more often on the streets of my city.

    PS that naked ankle part – sooo beautiful!

    I don’t like the tights…

    Otherwise, she is adorable.

    and if you’re not old enough to get that reference,

    Positively… I don’t think understanding your reference is a question of age, more a question of literary proficiency.

    She looks fabulous, and if she is 49 – good for her, but you know it wasn’t attained with a lot of hard work, pain and skill.

    such a great look , especially with the minimalist background as a frame ….
    I can’t believe she’s 54 !!! wow , awesome

    shiny blue black — yes, right. but to demonstrate how unliterary i am, i had in mind the old film, which i am fairly sure lives on only in the minds of the truly, er, mature, and in my garbled fashion i meant only that one must be old to understand the envy and respect i feel toward someone who looks that darn good at that darn age.
