I love that she is wearing so much color! The purple dress is to die for, and her green skirt and button down has such a preppy feel to it and at the same time the gold sandals and necklace just make it more sophisticated. http://www.cardigansandcouture.blogspot.com
Love, love the green and purple together!

How daring…Love the first dress
I love the necklace on top of the bow on the shirt. So chic!

September 28, 2009 at 10:13 am
I love that someone out there is wearing some colors instead of just black or white all the time =)

Again, you and Garance appear to be on the same page! Takes a great eye to wear color like this.
September 28, 2009 at 11:00 am
She looks gorgeous. It's like she sucked the color out of life! fantastic…
September 28, 2009 at 11:01 am
i love that she embraces colour and doesn't wear only black and shades of black haha.

Love the purple dress, the colour and the texture are wonderful, plus she is just so cute:)http://loveyourfabulousself.blogspot.com/

HOW DOES SHE DO IT?! Both looks are so effortlessly beautiful.
PS. I want that purple dress!

the second outfit especially is just stunning. fabulous use of the color kelly green.
September 28, 2009 at 11:42 am
very eye catching and beautiful–I'd rather not use the word fierce, but she is that and more.
September 28, 2009 at 11:43 am
She has a lovely smile, nice legs, beautiful hair. Love her dress – curious as to what kind of shoes she was wearing with it. The second outfit is colorful… but boring.
September 28, 2009 at 11:44 am
I also find her low heels very refreshing.
September 28, 2009 at 11:47 am
i really like the fact that she wears so many colors!the purple dress is amazing!i don't like the way her hair looks, i don't think that the haircut is very flatering for her face.
September 28, 2009 at 11:52 am
green and violet seems to be amazing…
September 28, 2009 at 11:58 am
She's wonderful, always looks great.

September 28, 2009 at 12:25 pm
Yes!!!The EMPRESS of color.I'm especially infatuated with the green/ periwinkle, violet -like a breath of fresh air. She looks equally lovely in that really interesting purple dress!

wow I love blue and green for fall and that purple dress is just amazing!
September 28, 2009 at 1:11 pm
I'm not crazy about the hair, but the colors are fabulous!
September 28, 2009 at 1:16 pm
I have always loved Milan! No place like it so fashionable and so convenient for shopping. Love the colors too! :)

Love that she's wearing strong colors! And the purple dress is faboulus! She looks great!
September 28, 2009 at 1:53 pm
Italian women exude a particular earthy-chic-humor that is so appealing. She's approachable…very unlike some of our American fashion editors (ahem).
Fantastic plum dress, BTW.

that circle dress is amazing!
September 28, 2009 at 3:03 pm
That purple dress- wow!
September 28, 2009 at 3:59 pm
Simply breathtaking. These photos, and those of Garance Dore yesterday, are going to inspire my fall wardrobe. Not so much black and tons of jewel tones. Beautiful. Particularly the purple dress!
September 28, 2009 at 4:15 pm
Fabulous in every age…Just beautiful
September 28, 2009 at 4:27 pm
That purple dress slays me – beautiful!!!
Just goes to show you that if you've got style it really doesn't matter what age you are.
September 28, 2009 at 4:47 pm
MITICA franca! Love her style..
September 28, 2009 at 5:33 pm
Essential Italian fall style, down to the slim gold sandals. Mama Mia! That's for me …
September 28, 2009 at 6:58 pm
Now THAT is how to age beautifully.

I think the second outfit ages her, whereas the purple dress makes her look incredibly vibrant and sexy.
September 28, 2009 at 8:03 pm
I LOVE the purple dress!!!!! Where can I get that dress? firstname.lastname@example.org
September 28, 2009 at 8:08 pm
…no, not Sarah Jessica Parker in 15 years! Madonna now!
September 28, 2009 at 9:02 pm
I love the first dress. The color and construction are great.
September 28, 2009 at 11:02 pm
That blouse is the loveliest color.
September 29, 2009 at 12:20 am
September 29, 2009 at 12:36 am
It is Comme des Garcons 99S/S dots dress. really love it!
September 29, 2009 at 3:40 am
She is fabulous. Simple, yet perfect.
September 29, 2009 at 6:27 am
Magnifico! Timeless, ageless Italian style
September 29, 2009 at 6:34 am
The purple dress…with the contrasting dark green belt and watch – absolutely wonderful.
September 29, 2009 at 8:46 am
I adore that first dress especially
September 29, 2009 at 10:14 am
LOVE the color and look of the dress! Beautiful!
September 29, 2009 at 10:44 am
The colors of her clothes & her style would be really perfect if she'll be proud to wear her wonderful hair grey :-)
September 29, 2009 at 10:55 am
I've never thought her hair was flattering but her clothes and style are perfection–as is her smile, so refreshing!

oh my goodness! She's gorgeous! And I love her bold choice in colors! (that dress is divine…) Lovely, lovely lady, indeed.
September 29, 2009 at 12:57 pm
There is something about her masculine undertones that make her able to pull this dress off. The dress itself is not the eye-catching detail. The color is fetching but, the virility of her arms, versus the softness of the hair supported by the sturdiness of her legs is HOT!!!!

I love the top dress. She looks like a mermaid!
September 30, 2009 at 4:08 am
She is great, so inspiring!
September 30, 2009 at 6:34 am
Great to see her finally wear color – after so many years of black! The Marni purple dress is hot!
Time for a a hair cut too!
September 30, 2009 at 7:03 am
Both looks are truly awesome. I LOVE that first dress. I want to see that dress in my closet.
October 1, 2009 at 3:17 am
I love the dress, of course. The second outfit is unexpected with the green skit as a "neutral" staple piece – one would normally wear brown, black or tan… but green!? I'm seeing a lot of that green in Europe lately- jackets especially. And purple, too…
October 1, 2009 at 7:28 am
I feel like taking all the dull clothes out of my wardrobe- superbly inspiring colour!
October 1, 2009 at 10:44 pm
love the fushcia dress…I'm a sucker for a nice geometric print :)

I wish women of a certain age here (in Australia) exuded such happiness and radiance. I'm thinking many women turn bland and conservative to fit in, but then they wonder why they disappear from been seen as beautiful?!.. Wonderful body and dresses with comfort, femininity, and class. The 'Queen' indeed!
October 4, 2009 at 10:57 pm
never doubted Franca's taste and style, elegant, chic and yet she manages to make it look casual. she's great, and she sure didn't miss this time. excellent choice of bold color the first!
October 17, 2009 at 8:55 pm
That purple dress is killer! The green dress and baby blue top is genius.
November 1, 2009 at 6:37 pm
HAHA she looks like Dee Snider
September 18, 2010 at 2:26 pm
This woman is divine. So older women can still be sexy!!!
December 26, 2014 at 5:39 am
That woman can dress.
