it’s kind of shocking when you look at her face (a bit janis joplin) and realize that she’s not young. the outfit – there is nothing particularly youthful about it, playful though, with the gloves, perhaps that’s why we attribute it to youth – made me think she was younger than she was. good for her! interesting contrast to Renata (i remember your first post about her, how if nothing else she has an authoritative stare /air of confidence that made her remarkable, something to that effect).
I have got this coat too. It’s Mui Mui A/W 06/7 and I’m a librarian! The coat is wraparound like a dress with the tie forming a bow at the back, but I like the way she’s wearing it here. I’m glad I have seen this picture of her looking great in it,as I was in two minds about it.
