    This woman stops to rest a second and becomes a master’s painting. Everything is right, from the shoulder cap on the fur vest, the interest of the vest lacing, the central and almost dominant scarf, to the gathering of folds on the lower sleeves, to the complexity of the pants, all of them bright gray sky colors. Her hair is wonderful with the vest. Beautiful photograph.

    Brilliant use to layering and textures to bring out the details in an otherwise bland colored outfit. She made grey so chic.

    all the grey is beautiful. i am coveting her white shirt, the light grey scarf, and the trousers.

    Fur again! I do enjoy seeing these younger women wearing fur – and her long hair juxtaposed against the grey fur makes the contrast even more apparent. It’s also another example of grey on grey, which we seem to be seeing more of.

    Interesting look! What a great vest! Goes great with everything else. The colors remind me of the ice storm we have here in Upstate NY…kind of ‘cool’.

    nice shot, nice palette of colours, nice girl, wonderful hair: is she a professional model? I mean: is it her own style, or someone chose the (great)outfit for her?

    Firstly noticed the beautiful tailoring on the trousers. Then the grey palate – lovely. I also really like the fold of the fur and the folds of the scarf, the different structure of them both. A beautiful outfit.

    Although really nice, This seems a carefully planned look, for some reason, it doesn’t have a carefree feel to it at all. I wonder what perfume she is wearing, you know she has every detail down.

    I absolutly adore the slouched mens pants. It alsol looks like she is wearing some ssort of white collared shirt underneath the fur vest which makes it seem like a good outfit to wear to work; when in work all she needs to do is take of her vest and she has a fairly simple ansamble.
    Great look and somewhat practical!

    When asked if he believed in God, Orson Wells answered, “Of course, who else?”

    If asked if I believe in this woman, in everything that appears to my eyes when I see her fabulous beauty and fabulous choices in fabric, drape, color, in her strong animal presence, etc, my answer is, most assuredly, “Yes, of course, who else?”

    Thank you, Sart, and to you young miss, for this vision of loveliness. It’s going to be a good day now, I can tell.

    “Why is she wearing her hair like that” ….. a very unusual way to look and walk around looking like that…..somehow it does not bother me, however I cant help but stare at it ….I don’t think that is always a good thing.
    Will give her credit for putting the whole look together that most people would not be able to pull off.
    Thanks Sar!

    first of all i must show my appreciation to you sartoralist for showcasing all of your beautiful photos. honestly, seeing the effort of so many people brightens my day! on to this young woman….flawless. she remnds me of classic armani ads. 80′s and early 90′s armani is my total inspiration ( and i’m 22 so go figure!) she just looks strong, confident, independent, and elegant.

    Love the look, but, at the risk of sounding priggish, can’t abide the fur.

    Worse, to me, when only a few skins are involved, as the animal is more immediately evoked…

    Absolutely love the trousers Sart!! Excellent color. But have to agree with the others who don’t like the fur. She looks like she knows what’s she’s doing, but it may be overkill. All else about this outfit is perfect. Don’t even mind the hair

    She does have kind of the look of the Old North or the Steppes with that vest. I like everything about her appearance and this photo except the outdated notion that wearing real fur is okay. More better fakes, please.

    Every couple of months one of your pictures interests me so much that I make a local copy for inspiration. As a male who loves tailored clothing, all the pictures I have thus far are of men. This is the first women I’m adding to my collection. Yes, she’s very beautiful–but more important, she has just great style. Well done.

    if this getup was in black or some other tacky color I could have sworn she’s Russian. It’s a very grown up look she’s got on.

    Sart, whenever you take photos of stunningly beautiful women, I have a hard time deciding if I like the look because of the fashion, or because of the woman. So, why do I like this?

    Oh well, my vote is “yowza!!”

    Oh, and I’m glad to see fur making a comeback, the PETA-patrol notwithstanding!
