    That dress is beautiful – I love the detailing (Is it lemon too?) I really like the simple femininity of this look.

    I love that she manages to balance consistency in her hair and silhouette with tonal and textural variety…she’s figured out a way to make what works for her not look the same every time. brava!

    Must say,she really dresses elegantly-has her very own style.She is so slim and chic and her hair looks fine.The tan is the only thing that´s worrying me.

    About how tall would you say she is, Sart?

    Damn, mama! Now that’s too hot!

    I gushed over that first picture when you posted it way back when but this one is equally as stunning.

    Beautiful lady! I fell in love with the second look. I suspect this trench coat is by Lanvin? Love it!

    She is incredibly stylish … the epitome of style and class. Her figure helps a lot, her handsome face is a huge plus but it is her amazing sense of style that is unique.

    She has a beautiful face and great taste, but she is frighteningly thin. I’m sorry, but I find this a little disturbing.

    She such feminine style. Both looks are beautiful!

    Possibly one of the best dressed journalists on the planet? I love the classier version of fishnet hose in the fall shot. Gorgeous legs–wish I had legs like that.

    I never get comments that a subject should stop eating a sandwich

    but people seem to feel comfortable telling someone to start eating a sandwich

    comments regarding a subjects weight will not be posted on this blog.

    Is she related to Matteo Marzotto,
    the CEO of Valentino and a Sart

    Stunning! She could quit her job as a journalist as she has a full time job making the rest of us feel inadequate. :) Absolutely lovely, Sart!

    I’d say she is such a handsome woman. looks so strong for ‘beautiful’.

  21. I too noticed the hemline. Spot on! The tonality also flatters her. Also, I love the detail in the bust as an alternstive to today’s tent dresses. Such confidence is wonderful to see.

    I like that she looks both strong—long arms and large hands—and feminine. I like the way the ridges make the fitted dress more forgiving & the short boxy top is just right: I have seen this shape used to good effect on petite women too.

    It is nice to see a lady professional with a mane of beautiful hair…short hair is always chic but theres no ‘rule’ you have to go short…brava

    My goodness, her muscles are well-toned.. I couldn’t help but that’s what struck me first.. By the way, I love her summery dress.. particularly the cut and the details..

    It looks beautiful the way she matches all the colors: hair, skin, dress, and the yellow-lime jacket!

    This woman is probaly chic every day and how lucky is she to be so tall and have such small feet.

    Fantastic, I love how each outfit in the two images invoke the seasons they were taken. The lushness to come from winter to spring and then the vibrant burst from spring to summer. Lovely.

    this is age appropiate sexiness.

    I believe it was Coco Chanel who said that a hemline just above the kneecap is the most flattering length. Am I right to cite this, fashion scholars?

  33. Lly

    June 20, 2007 at 11:19 pm

    she have a nice body, and so the both clothes dressed her well, as you said “a woman for all seasons”

    loved it!

    Dearest Sart,I love your comments re: sandwich eating, etc. Thank you for voicing this social inequity so elegantly, leaving everyone’s sensibilities intact. A true diplomat, sir.

    As for this lady, she is just that–a lady. I have great admiration for her style and her immense individuality. As always, xoxoxo

    She looks very ladylike (getting to be a rarity these days) AND stylish AND age appropriate AND chic. Both outfits are very flattering to her proportions (fashionably slender but still healthy looking in my opinion) Most of all she looks confident and comfortable. Gold star!

    Seems to perfect in her choice of colours-brigther matching her tanned skin in summer, darker for fall/winter. leaves a great impression.

    She is exactly the type of elegant woman I’d like to be when I am a woman! thank you for showing us all these looks really inspiring, your blog is really cool.

    beyond the fact she looks great in both outfits, I am rather curious how old she can be. I guess around (perhaps over) 40.
    She looks great!!! It seems that she takes care of her body. Looking at the pics, I honestly say If now i would have got overweight, I would stop eat my sandwich! Respect on such ladies!

    I appreciate that you would rather comments about weight not be posted. That is a sensible idea on many a level. (Even if I didn’t approve, it would be your perogative regardless!) But perhaps you could please show some photos of larger men and women from time to time (would be truly revolutionary to treat them as any other photo and not mention that loaded phrase “plus-size” or even “real women”!). I would like to see if stylish outfits are possible for all different body shapes.

    I don’t mind if you don’t want this comment posted, but please could you consider the suggestion? You seem a very thoughtful person so I am hoping you will carefully consider the matter.

    Many thanks.

    Other posters have got it right –elegant, feminine, and yet also strong. The shoes are also beautiful! I love metallic shoes– I hope they stay in style for a long while still. and I like how these match her bracelets.

    Great style. For the question on the relation to Matteo Marzotto, I think she’s the wife of Gaetano, one of Matteo’s cousins.

    Bravo for the editing unnecessary and downright rude comments! This blog, as I understand it, is about a celebration of individual style as you see it and then in turn sharing it with us.

    It just so happens that you have an amazing eye that so many of us enjoy seeing and discussing in a respectful manner.

    This woman was fantastic the first time we saw her and seeing her now shows that we didn’t just see her on her one good day.

    Every day is good for her.

    Very Charlotte Rampling!

    Opinions please…

    As a twenty-two year old I am wondering if this kind of styling can work for someone my age, or am I going to have to wait a few more years to be able to pull off such a look?

    I am so captivated by this lady…now and when you posted the first photo of her. It can’t be rude to stare in this case!

    I am sorry but I think this lovely woman looks frightful in the yellow bolero and that beige dress. Neither the color(s) nor the styles suit her. She looks great in the second pic however.

    Albertina Marzotto is the wife of Gaetano Marzotto, has three children and had worked with his husband for a while in the past. Last year she gave lectures on design and fashion at the University of Venice. The organizators of the event presented her as “a goddess of style”.
    This says a lot, I think.

    I admire this woman’s style, but I do not like the latest outfit as well as the first. It is the color and somehow the cleavage/neckline is not so flattering. Maybe too round or something. She’s still fabulous nontheless.
