The lady in photo 2 has a coat that looks somewhat strange.It looks as if the tayloring i not yet finished.The belt must be a stirrup strap.Cute lady though. The woman with long hair and a trench has nice shoes.I only wish the color or her trench would be different. The pretty shoes now somehow stay in the shadow of the coat.
I want to comment on the lovely lady in the grey coat.
Fabulous fashion forward coat (looks like Marni): check! Super hot trendy shoe-booties: check! Sleek, neat grooming: check!
So why does she not look perfect? These same elements would look amazing on a leggy broad-shouldered woman, but on this lady’s petite fame it’s just too much.
The coat swallows her small figure in shapeless folds and the booties only further visually shorten her already not long legs (further worsened by ankle socks peeping over the top of the shoe). The lesson here I think is to wear what’s right for your body, regardless of what the editors are bruiting. I recognize that this season seems to be all about long legs, but there are surely better proportioned pieces to be had in the range of collections available to a woman with access to the Stella McCartney show.
The lady obviously has tremendous style and has taken care with her choices, but she has unfortunately chosen pieces that, in my opinion, do not flatter her individuality.
I saw the second lady in Paris. She looked absolutely amazing – even more so than in the photo (but it’s a great photo!) which is why I remember her. And that coat! I was in love with it at first sight.
In response to amed studio – I mentioned earlier that I had seen this same lady in Paris (2nd lady, grey coat)and that she looked great. Do you think it’s possible that the look doesn’t photograph well on her? I’m very petite myself and one of the things that I noticed about her (she was wearing the same coat) was that she was wearing a coat that I would never dream of wearing because of my proportions and she looked fabulous. She was also very graceful so maybe that helped too. Anyway just a thought. But I think anybody if they saw her in reality wouldn’t dream to change a thing.
The woman in the last photo is a true sartorialist. Personal style like I’ve never seen. The pop of color underneath the black cape is very modern and fresh and the confidence she exudes makes the look that much better.
Love the woman at the top, I scroll through your blog every day, and each time I do a double take of her…and I have worked out what it is, she looks like she’s been transported from a bloomsbury set party, and has that face reminiscent of Virginia Woolf or Vanessa Bell – quite amazing!
Wow, all very chic! I do wish the last one–the blonde–had been nervy enough to go with the natural skin tone on her legs, instead of that awful pinky-orange bottle tan. This way, her legs appear to clash with the otherwise fabulous yellow skirt.
#1 – I love it all. Clothes, hair face. Probably one of my Top Ten posts.
#4 – I dislike this for many reasons. Perhaps it’s just the blue-ishness of her shoes complementing the orangeyness of her legs, but it would be nice if they were a color closer to her complexion. And I am not sure how old she is but somehow this look does her no favors.
