    Her outfit is so effortless. I also love how she can totally pull off the all-black-in-the-middle-of-summer look.

    I agree with the person above, it’s so effortless. But the simplicity is always welcome. It doesn’t look like a typical summer look, but give the woman a break, it’s been chilly, cloudy and rainy in many places in Europe. I’ve just came back from Copenhagen and i saw so many girls wearing long dark coats, boots and scarfs, for God’s sake. Summer?!?

    This is my former headmistress and Dita Von Teese rolled up into one person. Great that she can wear all black and look so conservative with a subtle underlying sexiness!

    Very modern and very retro at the same time

    I love her hair–so “come una volta,” with the very modern tshirt and pouf skirt.

    She looks great, but I think her hair has a lot to do with how cool she is.

    She reminds me of Deita Von Tese(sp).I love this type of look. This look is very good for those of with hourglass figures.

    her hair looks like a profile silhouette…

    She’s divine, effortless. If your haircut pulls your look together, isn’t that the definition of style?

    The shoes are perfect! While the rest of her outfit is demure, the shoes give off a come hither vibe.

    for sure the hair makes this an outfit, a look. it confirms that she has style and is not just wearing comfy cotton separates with pretty shoes.
    this means she is really bringing something of herself to it, is so much more than a mannequin.

    She looks beautiful – her hair is stunning. It perfectly suits the style. Great shot – she looks elegant and pensive.

    this seems like the highest and best use of prada – on a real woman, with a real life, looking great.

    simply olive, you have got to be kidding…
    i’ve been perusing this blog like an addict this past weekend; and, i have to say that this woman is the definition of sartorial. she hit mark with class, style, fit, attitude, feminine, ageless, and sexy all at the same time. i can’t be believe you would be negative about her look. bravo to the sartorialist for finding her and sharing her.

    Her hair makes me think of 1930s style — Stefania Sandrelli in the movie “The Conformist.” And yet she carries it off in a completely uncontrived way. Lovely.

    This is how my mother dressed in Naples in the 1960′s, very catholic. Nice to see the pendulum of chic has swung back!

    I'm proud to call her one of my dearest friends, my Italian sister.

    Lucia's effortless & refined chic comes from within.

    Ti voglio un casino di bene, Lucia!
