    Amazing coat, amazing shoes and beautiful sunglasses. The casually styled hair make this work so perfectly.

    She looks breathtaking.

    Just fabulous – right down to the strand of hair trailing behind catching the light. A really beautiful picture, reminds me of Bonnard.

    Love the color, movement and strappy shoes. Is she a black lady bug or the Little black riding hood ?

    I love it when women run on heels. The pinnacle of being feminine and strong at the same time.

    Gorgeous movement and shape. The angle on her legs is so odd it just adds to the coat and shoes.

    personally, i loved how she contrasted the chic billowy coat against those uber-sexy heels.

    i think ‘em heels are from Bottega Veneta, no?

    i’m currently living in memphis and for some reason all the women here who attempt to wear a shoe with any sort of shoe end up looking completely trashy. however, this woman pulls it off quite wonderfully.

    Her outfit is really cool! The coat is incredible, and the shoes are amazing, she really is a good example of the Parisian chic. The perfect detail, the sunglasses.

    Marvelous coat–the shot of her-in-movement gives a great sense of its shape.

    She looks great.I like her hair,cause it is a bit messy and allows her pretty face to be seen.The coat is real modern too,I only wish it were a bit longer.She has great legs but the proportions are not quite right here.Fancy and elegant shoes too.

    You captured it at the exact moment of movement that perfectly displays its shape and line.

    lovely! i heard that when women wear heels, they are putting three times their body weight on the balls of their feet. so for her to be running on gravel… wow!

    I love it when women run on heels. The pinnacle of being feminine and strong at the same time.

    I think it’s the pinnacle of ridiculousness. Women don’t “run” in heels. They do a strange little bouncy fast hobble.

    She looks lovely, and this is a gorgeous photo, but if she makes it through the day without breaking an ankle, it will merely demonstrate the pinnacle of being feminine and extremely LUCKY at the same time. Strength has nothing to do with it.

    What a lovely photograph. The sunlight on her hair, the Monetesque purple and pinks with the razor hedge, and then of course the movement in black — really wonderful, like a symphony.

    Love those shoes too.

    Thank you for another beautiful photograph.

    Brilliant capture! Very Parisian, very fashion editorial staff running to the show.

    Don’t you just hate the white pebbly dusty path at the Tuileries? I feel like I need a pedicure after I walk through that stuff.

    Is this the same Teen Vogue editor who was on The Hills doing that photo shoot with Whitney’s little sister?

    (I can’t believe I am asking this, but I keep thinking this woman looks really familiar, and this is the closest I can get to placing her.)

    (i’m disturbed at how other’s find it necessary to find negative comments to make: “break her ankle”? are you kidding me?)

    anyhow, it just amazing me and makes me smile to know that there are people out there creating beauty like this young lady does seemingly without any effort…GREAT FIND SART! thank you

    She’s probably rushing off to get the 8th Harry Potter book for the twins ;)

    She has a great coat and shoes though… Miranda would approve.

    I cannot believe how easy she pulls the heels off. I’m at Nordstroms today agonizing over pumps that have a 2 inch heel because I don’t think I can handle any higher…how does she do it? She looks amazing!

    Is it impossible for a woman to be so well-balanced that she just might be able to run in heels? While I am no expert myself, I have seen many women do it. It may not have anything to do with strength, but it has everything to do with balance, grace, and coordination.

    The women you see hobbling also just might have blisters due to ill-fitting shoes. Haha.

    Ah, divine combination!

    I have a similar coat… higher collar, though. However, I admire this fearless demoiselle for her heels.

    I prefer lower kitten heels and slacks. Cycling around the city has its disadvantages, and should I affect the same outfit, certain body parts would definitely suffer from the wind chill factor…

    “Is this the same Teen Vogue editor who was on The Hills doing that photo shoot with Whitney’s little sister?”

    I was thinking the same thing! It really does look like Lawren Howell. I kept coming here to check if anyone said it was her. Glad someone else thinks so!

    Oh My- But this is amazing!!!! So chic and simple. The Balenciaga heels paired with the coat is so genius.

    Lola – yes, someone else that was thinking the same thing as me!! And even better, you know her name!

    Now, how can we find out if it was The Hills editor or not? Can anyone confirm?

    Folks, any negativity was directed entirely at the poster who said that a woman running in heels is “the pinnacle of being feminine and strong at the same time,” with which I strongly disagree. I’m aware that this is an entirely subjective point of view on both my part and that of the original poster. I’m free to disagree with her and to voice my disagreement (unless Sart tells me not to).

    As I said, I do agree that this woman’s outfit is lovely and that the photo is a beautiful capture. How can I make it more clear than that?

    And, no, I have never seen a woman running in heels this height look graceful. In a still photo, sure, but not in person. It always looks awkward and restricted to me. The perception of grace is subjective, too, you see. :)

    The rapidity of her movement:

    The delicacy of her features:

    Wrapped in the floating volume of this jacket:

    Pointed upon the most elegant of sandals:

    Accented by a strand of loose hair:

    A great look! And a wonderful photo!
