I love the coat and the shoes.
October 7, 2009 at 5:10 pm
Loved the shoes!

Do anyone know where that bag is from? x
October 7, 2009 at 5:25 pm
Am I seeing right–navy with black accessories? Love the modernly classic combination.

The coat is like a decorative wrap and the shoes are the exclamation point. This understated elegance is recession-proof.
October 7, 2009 at 5:34 pm
Her legs !!
October 7, 2009 at 5:36 pm
She's gorgeous, and so casual about it too…I just love how she stands out from the bright background of fall!
October 7, 2009 at 5:37 pm
I love the golden trees behind her & the warming smile in the second shot.
October 7, 2009 at 5:38 pm
The autumn leaves and just beautiful. The lady is too.
October 7, 2009 at 5:42 pm
I remember this lady from other photos of yours… Grate style. So elegant.
She styling! Killing them with those shoes.
October 7, 2009 at 5:46 pm
Such a classically chic mix played up perfectly by her warm smile!
October 7, 2009 at 5:55 pm
Perfect! And I love when people acutally SMILE when their picture is taken. She's lovely.
October 7, 2009 at 5:56 pm
Classical but very sober, a real lady. Like it ;)

Wow! Great legs. And she seem so comfortable. This is what I like the most: when you feel comfortable, you seem to be very secure of your own style.
October 7, 2009 at 6:22 pm
Perfect time for me to see this photo. I was thinking about selling my black Kelly but I am inspired once again. Now I just need some fierce heels to freshen up my look.
October 7, 2009 at 6:27 pm
To the above poster…the bag is an Hermes Kelly Bag. :)
October 7, 2009 at 6:29 pm
I love the genuine smile-very beautiful!
October 7, 2009 at 6:35 pm
she has great legs!
October 7, 2009 at 6:39 pm
This woman looks wonderful! I love the classic clothing and bag (plus stud earrings and double-wrap watch), with the surprise of the edgier, trendy shoe. While I love looking at photographs of fashion types captured out and about during the shows, sometimes, even when they look great, they're also so up-to-the-minute that they're sort of…fashion victimy. (Gio is an exception! As is this lady.)
This picture is inspirational for us mere mortals: It suggests a way to mix one fantastic, trendy item with things we already have. The magazines are always telling us to do this, but they can never SHOW us how to do it, because they always have to feature trendy new clothes to attract advertising. It's great to see an example of classic style that also looks modern and nonstuffy. Plus — killer stems never hurt!!
October 7, 2009 at 6:43 pm
her style is simple and confident LOVE IT. Oh, and i love those shoes. She makes it seem so effortless.
October 7, 2009 at 7:07 pm
I love those shoes!!!
She looks elegant & effortless. I'm assuming most of it has to do with her personality shining through. Perfect.
October 7, 2009 at 7:09 pm
Absolutely beautiful pictures! Awesome shoes, classic outfit, and beautiful woman! (Especially her smile.) And the background is excellent as well.
October 7, 2009 at 7:48 pm
I loove the first photo!
October 7, 2009 at 8:18 pm
Oh, it's fall in Paris…romantic. And her blue dress is quiet nice.
October 7, 2009 at 8:25 pm
I love the comfy sophistication of the vestements with the krazy sexy chaussures! Does anyone else find this a liberating, newer trend of the aughts in women's fashion – that extremely hot shoes can be worn with nearly any outfit? -SS Portland, OR
October 7, 2009 at 9:07 pm
what a well dressed lady. does she work in fashion?
October 7, 2009 at 9:09 pm
she looks lovely, classy. i have those dior "sex and the city" shoes in black- my favorite pair! i like how she wears hers here with something simple- makes the shoes really stand out.
October 7, 2009 at 9:36 pm
I love her outfit: blue on blue that's comfortable and loose. I have hated almost all takes on the bondage shoes but this looks sexy and beautiful. Inspiring sartorialist!
October 7, 2009 at 10:07 pm
I love it. It's very classic, but the shoes really kick it up a notch.
October 7, 2009 at 10:09 pm
Those legs stand out more than anything…lucky gal!
October 7, 2009 at 10:26 pm
The shoes win for me!
October 7, 2009 at 10:40 pm
eh. great shoe, great glow, great smile, but a bit secretarial, no?

I think I own a pair of those same shoes :)
October 8, 2009 at 12:35 am
the shoes are great…but her smile's the best! :) beautiful woman!
October 8, 2009 at 12:39 am
Lovely. Chic. I can see why you couldn't select just one picture.
October 8, 2009 at 1:13 am
October 8, 2009 at 2:28 am
Ah! I have those same exact shoes!!! Love how she paired with the elegant classic & almost office-like outfit!xx

So very very beatiful…thanks, sart, for this picture!And good to see such an inspirational and stylish woman, how refreshing!

A natural and beautiful woman and I am LOVING everything about her ensemble…the blue colours, cut, bag and of course the SHOES! Elle est bien dans sa peau.
October 8, 2009 at 8:29 am
Svelte…..also a great smile
October 8, 2009 at 8:42 am
sophisticated and OH those SHOES!
October 8, 2009 at 8:44 am
She's beautiful..stunning smile, which is rare for fashion week photos.
October 8, 2009 at 9:07 am
Such serenity in this woman! It goes in pair with her styling…
What an enchanting smile.Giulia
October 8, 2009 at 9:43 am
Sorry to say, but I find most fashionistas icy and somewhat snooty. This woman however; appears to be the total opposite of that.. Her smile is so inviting even though initially one might think: snob! I like this pic a lot…
October 8, 2009 at 10:26 am
very nice smile!
October 8, 2009 at 10:57 am
Yes, many have made the same points I would, but she is an example of classic but modern. The shoes need the quietness of everything else to strut their stuff and she's got it down. I'm glad you had two photos so we can see how beautiful her smile is in the second while showing her cool in the first. A favorite set of pics, for sure.
October 8, 2009 at 11:23 am
I love her, I hate the shoes.
Maybe it is because I don't follow fashion so much.
But I like this blog because the pictures are inspiring.
October 8, 2009 at 12:16 pm
Great series of pics, Scott.
October 8, 2009 at 3:11 pm
looove her sweet smile :)
October 8, 2009 at 3:40 pm
these photos are incredible, please check out my blog http://blog-isthenewblack.blogspot.com xoxox

Quite frankly, I find the combination of her friendly smile, wonderful legs and high heels extremely erotic..

Love that she took off the dark glasses and smiled for the pic. I would've done the sane. Anybody find it hard to talk to or connect with people while wearing dark glasses?
October 8, 2009 at 9:16 pm
Gorgeous! Head to toe….
October 8, 2009 at 10:08 pm
I LOVE HER SHOES!
October 9, 2009 at 12:10 am
This is just too plain to me. Plus brown shoes mixed with black purse mixed with black bracelets? I can't get down with that.

Beautiful legs. She also projects a gentle spirit.

Have you photographed her before? She looks so familiar but I can't remember what I have seen her in.
October 12, 2009 at 10:14 am
shala…..werq it girl !!!
October 12, 2009 at 5:41 pm
Even though it is more posed, I like the second shot much better. The smile and pose are way more attractive, relaxed and inviting.Plus I am developing a peeve about people texting. There is something about fashion and style that has to do with the present moment in a particular space that texting does not participate in.
October 13, 2009 at 8:32 am
nice shoes/bag/sunglasses, watch and coat…but the shoes are the first thing i noticed…so fierce with a classic outfit..
October 14, 2009 at 7:38 pm
wohoa is that a smile?
October 16, 2009 at 3:29 pm
Shala is soooo stunning. More Shala. More Nicola. More Genevieve. Please!

I believe those are the Dior Extreme sandals. I have a good leather knock off of that style.

I LOVE Shala Monroque. She is my fashion inspiration!
February 12, 2010 at 9:11 pm
This woman's elegance does not come from her clothes. It comes from within… You either have it, or you don't…She would look equally chic in a burlap sack. And that's my two cents!
June 1, 2012 at 6:39 pm
Well, HELLO! Lovely, and so casual about it all. I bet she never complains that her feet hurt – because I bet they never do. Love you!
