    love the red patent. The contrast of texture is really beautiful in this outfit; the wool houndstooth, the ruffle shirt, leather strappy shoes, and of course, the bag. love it.

    She is adorable! She looks petite, and her clothes are perfectly proportioned for her. Love the ruffled blouse.
    Only her legs and feet look a little bare compared to the rest.

    Love her hair pulled back a little to the side. Beautiful colors … lucky Paris!

    I’m rather enjoying the Henri Cartier-Bresson Marseille background setup in this and other images..

    See Bresson’s Marseille shot here:

    Gorgeous photo– I love her hair and makeup. But that’s a hounds tooth coat, not checked.

    What a beautiful little lady! Such a lovely photograph too. The autumn leaves contrast beautifully with her black and white houndstooth.

    Ooh get her! This is a very elegant outfit I think…

    Great photo. Love the thin light and leaves on the gound. Very autumnal. Scott, you really know how to cast a mood! I like the whole ensemble here. Great shoes. This beautiful young lady has a Spanish look going on. She’s also rocking it in New Romantic ruffles. I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I really like the colour of her hand bag. It is entirely appropriate.

    Coats and open-toed flats :(

    Otherwise a great outfit.

    And that’s as articulate as I get, when terribly excited about an ensemble.

    This is a charming picture! The girl is in overal looking very sophisticated and at ease at the same time, and the setting is most adorable as well.

    Why am I the only one who feels unsettled about her bag and outfit combo. All the pieces are fantastic, but for me, The bag just does not work with outfit; the play on volume is not present, it does not contrast the look enough……
    I must be a total sourpuss. She is STUNNING and it looks as if Sart channeled a pure mid 50′s moment.
    Great shot S.
    Your prissiest fan,

    I love the bag, too. That is the kind of bag I would have like to see on the young lady with the hat.

    Fantastic! She’s dressed up like a lady without being fussy.

    This is going to be very picky of me, but if her handbag was fire-engine red it would pop even better against the black and white than the burgundy bag she’s carrying.

    Those strappy shoes with that coat! I am not brave enough for that, but she looks wonderful!

    I love this picture with the background. It reminds me, not visually but atmospherically, of the parts of Funny Face in Paris.

    the line of the trees and the “extras” in the background….like you staged it.

    I wonder if that bag is new or vintage….It looks like the latter, no?

    One must be very careful when one uses the word perfect.

    Everything, including the pic: perfect.

    For some reason the last two images are a bit blurry when enlarged. Anyway, she’s gorgeous from head to toe.

    This photo reminds me of a picture of….Lisa Fonsagrives? by Avedon.

    Anyway it’s very “Funny Face” after Audrey H. gave up on empathecalism!

    Silly me, I didn’t mean Fonssagrives by Avedon! I meant Penn! She was Mrs. Penn after all.

    Oh so sorry. It’s late where I am.

    i think the coat over powers her but check out the blouse she has on underneath and the shoes. now, that is a classic way to be trendy and sexy.

    houndstooth…does add to anything here. great shot. i forget how beautiful the garden gets.

    Houndstooth !

    I had forgotten how much I love houndstooth.

    And the total look is magnifique.

    The photo too, of course.

    Love how you’ve framed this with the autumn trees on either side! That and the red bag are nice splashes of color against the black and white. There’s something so chic about a red bag!

    What a fabulous photograph, as well as a great look. And I adore the vintage bag – its color and structure are great against the volume of the coat and the ruffles.

    The black checked coat is outstanding but I was rather looking at the frilly details of the blouse underneath. I think it’s because I’ve been looking for a white blouse that looks like that myself! *smile*

    Love the outfit, except for the shoes. If the heels were an inch taller and without the strap in the middle it would be a 10 out of 10.

    don’t love the heavy coat with sandals, but if she paired the coat with boots or even just black heels or flats it would look much more together.

    This is true a true autumn beauty, Paris is magical at this time of the year as you can see the backdrop of nature plays perfectly with the color and boldness of the young woman. It is just spectacular how she is positioned, her feet, the color of that purse really comes out! Chic and timeless in Paris
