Love this whole ensemble. Maybe it's just because I, too, wear mostly black all the time.

it's not easy to be outstanding with a black ensemble, but I think she did it. Bravo!
Just one word: Wow!

She is a little bit out of this word but still, great picture, great autumn!
October 16, 2009 at 9:52 am
She looks great. So adorable. Almost like a doll. Absolute perfection. Oh, and I LOVE all the fall colors and leaves changing around her, it is like the cherry on top for me.

October 16, 2009 at 10:02 am
I think she's trying too hard.
October 16, 2009 at 10:03 am
Aah the sheer top, the flaxen hair, the large glasses, the vertiginous heels. A funereal beauty, and utterly sublime.
October 16, 2009 at 10:04 am
Really??? Starbucks… in Paris. Someone needs to educate this woman's taste buds.
October 16, 2009 at 10:07 am
WoW, I just love the contrast of her skin and her black outfit!

October 16, 2009 at 10:13 am
autumnal chic. great shirt and big sunglasses.
October 16, 2009 at 10:23 am
HMMM! The hair a bit goth, the shoes a bit fetishist naughty. As some else one wrote; a secretary with a "dark side"?
October 16, 2009 at 10:25 am
Love that shoe! The whole outfit is haute but the shoe is sexy as hell!
October 16, 2009 at 10:26 am
Hey I know her. The DJ.

Hello Leigh Lezark! Fancy seeing you here!
gorgeous studded shoes. she may be all black, but she'll definitely stand out!
October 16, 2009 at 10:45 am
Love the Starbucks (and the outfit)
October 16, 2009 at 10:47 am
she can drink all the starbucks she wants, i'll always love leigh lezark…

(It's not often I feel the use for capitals.)
Is that blue nail polish? I love it. Matches the blue black hair.
Beautiful arms and hands too. Agreed the cup she's grasping ain't so cool, but I love the way you've caught her with her hands splayed, weblike on it.
October 16, 2009 at 11:04 am
Beautiful – absolutely, stunningly beautiful.
Everything about her looks right to me. Her hair is gorgeous, her complexion looks fabulous and I think she chose her clothes and shoes perfectly.
Audrey Hepburn came immediately to mind.
It would be Paris too wouldn't it. Where else but Paris.
I've fallen in love!
October 16, 2009 at 11:11 am
Oh, no! Someone is carrying a large paper Starbuck's cup in Paris! This should not be!
October 16, 2009 at 11:14 am
Great shot with wonderful lighting. Her black ensemble sets off the her complexion (and the foliage).
October 16, 2009 at 11:24 am
I still don't know who she is. But she always looks really interesting.
October 16, 2009 at 11:30 am
The shoes are a bit too aggressive for my liking, although I guess simple pumps might look a bit twee with the femininity of the whole look. The hair is great; nice to see a classic symmetrical bob, not one of these ubiquitous angular Victoria Beckham-copycat cuts that often don't suit the girls they're on.
October 16, 2009 at 11:31 am
Fabulous!!! Love everything…especially her hair!!!
October 16, 2009 at 11:38 am
Great hairstyle! Seeing your pics of Paris, I'm missing this city. It's the city of my dreams…
October 16, 2009 at 11:45 am
The hair is so amazing. Black hair always looks so shiny. It does look a little wig-y but that is just due to having an amazing cut color combo. Love it.
October 16, 2009 at 11:46 am
I love this shot! Her black ensemble really stands out against those autumnal colors. I want everything she has on, from her shades to those fantastic shoes! Perfectly chic!

She always looks so immaculate, can't believe I didn't see her around Paris during fashion week :(xx
October 16, 2009 at 11:51 am
THE SHOES !!!!!!!!
October 16, 2009 at 11:53 am
I like her hair quite a bit. The shoes look so sweet with those pretty fall leaves.
October 16, 2009 at 11:57 am
Can Americans take it easy with the super-sized Starbucks cups when they are in Europe? Jeeez
Yes very dramatic, very lovely… but the pedant in me must say flaxen haired she is most certainly not! Raven haired yes. La fille aux cheveux de lin was a blond, i would image a silvery strw blond at that. lol! As always i love your photos
October 16, 2009 at 11:58 am
awwww i love her top.
October 16, 2009 at 12:00 pm
Love love love the shoes!
October 16, 2009 at 12:25 pm
The dress and shoes are Dior!
October 16, 2009 at 12:34 pm
Doesn't she get cold? I don't know what the temperature was in Paris today, but not warm enough to walk around in something like this?
I love this whole look! The look is soo strong and powerful!! Great look!!
October 16, 2009 at 12:53 pm
i'm in love with this.. she looks soo soo chic.
October 16, 2009 at 1:14 pm
…in love with her hair…
October 16, 2009 at 1:26 pm
a delicate other worldliness firmly planted on earth.
October 16, 2009 at 1:28 pm
October 16, 2009 at 1:31 pm
as an aside: even if it wasn't leigh — she's still clearly american. no parisian would be caught dead carrying a cup of coffee.
October 16, 2009 at 1:40 pm
Flaxen hair?!I like her delicate blouse – a good antidote to the tough-girl shoes
October 16, 2009 at 1:48 pm
Those heels are rock star!
October 16, 2009 at 1:51 pm
What a great shot. Love the stark contrasts between her all-black theme and the Autumn colours. Love it!

October 16, 2009 at 2:09 pm
LEIGH LEZARK! Love her. Her still is so chic, now…she looks lovely.
Funnily enough, she went to my school…
Love it. Her skin tone is perfect with all of that black.
October 16, 2009 at 2:11 pm
Being that she only wears black, you might call her a one trick pony, but she does it better than most and always looks great, so in the end I can't hate. She's hot. All the time.
October 16, 2009 at 2:23 pm
Great look! Stunning.
October 16, 2009 at 2:27 pm
sleek and black…love everything!
October 16, 2009 at 2:46 pm
I always find images of black clothing difficult to admire on screen or in print. Especially in this pose as it's too hard to see what she is wearing, the textures, the draping or if it even fits her properly.
Apart from the horribly distracting charbucks cup (in a Paris park no less!) I like the photo anyway.
October 16, 2009 at 3:03 pm
What a lovley picture!
October 16, 2009 at 3:17 pm
Dark from hair to toes. She makes it so chic. Love love her shoes. The laces-alike, the studs, the embellished heels. Fab
October 16, 2009 at 3:28 pm
she is so striking in all black.
Those are some big feet!
Love the glasses & the hair cut/color, though.
October 16, 2009 at 3:32 pm
Absolutely chicfashion as the ultimate way of expression, ultimate as maximum way that one can communicate of oneselfsee you at L.A. ;)

October 16, 2009 at 6:30 pm
She's beautiful! She looks like a character out of a film! Love her shoes!
October 16, 2009 at 6:37 pm
Love the way the hair frames her face, and the glasses totally complete the outfit. Class.
October 16, 2009 at 6:56 pm
For me, this shot is about the black. Obviously! But, it's great how she mixes busier pieces like the top and the shoes in with the solid black of her hair, shades, and skirt. It makes the look fresh and gives it an edge.
She looks great! Who cares what brand of bean she is sipping?
October 16, 2009 at 6:59 pm
October 16, 2009 at 7:05 pm
I love the hair and the glasses. And I'm not a fan of platforms, but the details on those shoes are amazing. She is so naturally fab and chic and radiates style!
October 16, 2009 at 7:15 pm
Leigh is just amazing, and those shoes! UNREAL!!!xx
October 16, 2009 at 7:42 pm
She is about the best thing in the good old U.S. right now. Great look and great style. Oi Mr S. looking foward to your book deal in L.A. next week. Think I'll roll up from the L.B.C. for that one. Safe flight my son.
October 16, 2009 at 8:04 pm
I like how her top is sheer which makes the outfit look more chic than anything else. I love the entire outfit!!
October 16, 2009 at 9:35 pm
OH YES that top is fantastic. She's so chic it hurts!

October 16, 2009 at 9:54 pm
While everyone commented on the very obvious element (i.e., the shoes), I am rather surprised that no one commented on the lovely symmetry between the shoes and the blouse. The repetition of the dot motif is a little too studied to be purely accidental. Beyond that, the almost piano-like gloss of her black skirt and black hair (repeated in the light bouncing off the sunglasses), along with that perfect tangle of limbs leaves me wondering why all the fuss about the shoes when there is so much else to get excited about here. [For the record, I will state that I am a bona-fide shoe fanatic myself.] There is also the great joy of looking at a picture and seeing someone who clearly knows that she is aware of seeing and being seen.

October 16, 2009 at 11:29 pm
Amazing. she seems soo calm.

She looks like a dark-haired Anna Wintour in her youth. Killer outfit!

so classy. her shoesss!!
October 17, 2009 at 7:03 am
Starbuks in Paris. A crying shame. !!!!!!Could not focus on the shot at all. Come to France and enjoy our culture ..that includes coffee also…
October 17, 2009 at 7:11 am
What a shame with that cup in her hand and that in Paris!!!!
October 17, 2009 at 7:16 am
Thats how we know the Americans.Starbucks in the hand. Great shot, but that paper cup a big NO NO . Its Paris you are in.
October 17, 2009 at 7:22 am
No French would be caught carrying a Starbucks outdoors. Come to think of it indoors also. Girl you are in Paris . Please try some of our wonderful coffee and even from a proper cup…..
October 17, 2009 at 7:28 am
Can't see anything but that awful cup….. shame and it in Paris.
October 17, 2009 at 7:32 am
Great hair. Really a lovely shot.Sadly, it's those cups that let you down.
October 17, 2009 at 9:06 am
October 17, 2009 at 9:39 am
I loveeee her. she's sooooo soooo sooo gorgeous. adore her lustrous black do. it's always impeccable. those shoes are amazing.
October 17, 2009 at 9:43 am
"Leigh Lezark also guest appeared in season 2 of Gossip Girl. She appered as a party guest in episode 20." haha, that;s how cool she is
October 17, 2009 at 11:05 am
October 17, 2009 at 11:08 am
I literally can not wait till I am older and can pull of this look. She can pull of all black with studs on her shoes without looking like a goth. SO chic. Perhaps the coffee, sunglasses and phone equal it out. The french do it so well.
October 17, 2009 at 11:23 am
As I read these comments about her cup. Hey, our fault why do we have starbucks at all in Paris if we are going to complain about an American girl liking it.? Different culture, so she is right to take if she likes. When I go to NY I NEVER take Starbucks.Am always looking for my coffee and food. Great shot Sart!
October 17, 2009 at 11:43 am
Xcuse me but I love the shoes and the hair… I believe these are her most attractive features in the pic…
October 17, 2009 at 11:50 am
This look is already a little tired
October 17, 2009 at 1:20 pm
Wow, who can even SEE that cup amongst the awe-inspiring beauty of the leaves, the light against the contrast of her chic black. She's fabulous from her head to her toes.It's true that cliched-cup has become the new cliched-cigarette.
October 17, 2009 at 4:11 pm
A Parisian shopgirl on a break?
The ensemble is trés chic. The shoes are like pieces of archetecture — like La Tour d'Eiffel!
October 17, 2009 at 5:29 pm
This is ab-so-lute-ly fabulous!
October 17, 2009 at 6:46 pm
Someone I recognize!!! Leigh Lezark will always have a special place in my heart. I've always loved her style. Although this isn't a favorite outfit for me, she looks great — and I love her shiny blacker-than-black hair. Who cares about the cup?
anon @ 11:50am : black-on-black is tired?ok.
October 17, 2009 at 6:51 pm
oh god i love her.

I don't understand how leigh lezark is so beautiful. she is truly ethereal and I love how she uses what she can to communicate her ladylike edginess in her style. she is one of my style icons! that blouse is wonderful. and thanks scott for the contrast in this photo, really nice against the greens.
