Agree with the other commenters who say she isn’t quite pulling the shorts off. Maybe it’s just the camera angle.
Gorgeous girl–stunning face, hair and body–but this isn’t doing it for me. Especially the smoking…. Ick.
She has looked better in other photos that have been taken of her–seems like she isn’t quite hitting the target with this outfit.
This outfit has the makings of a chic outfit. With longer shorts, or slacks, this could be one of the cutest outfits she’s worn on here. BUT when she puts on the short shorts, it ruins the whole aura of chic-ness. Missed the mark for me.
The shorts don’t work with that jacket, I don’t think. You’ve got a bare two inches of shorts showing underneath the edge of the jacket, which seems too skimpy. Also, if it’s hot enough for shorts like this, then why the jacket?
LOVE how that jacket comes off as delightfully sassy on her, and wow has she got a pair of legs that go on for days! Not entirely sure how I feel about the shorts but I do think the watch is an unexpectedly pleasant departure from the usual chainlink ones we’ve been seeing for seasons.
Shorts and high heels are a bit intimidating for a daytime outfit, unless everyone else is wearing it. She would be perfect if she was in Rio or somewhere in the Cote D’Azur.
Lots of good wishes from Santiago, Chile!
there is something beautiful about an outfit where details are considered, things like color, texture, proportion, finish and most importantly – fit. though she is a lovely girl, between the shoes and the “shorts” some of these details could have been better considered.
She’s beautiful but harsh at the same time. Her shorts drag at the front and her legs look cold! The jacket is exceptional, the watch is cute but overall there’s just something not right with the whole look. The shorts are bad and maybe the shoes are too . . . . . or do they just look wrong because of the shorts?!
You anti-smoking folks need to back off. Check yourselves before you wag and point. For those with a beef about the shortness of the shorts…Too short for exactly just what? It makes you look. She carries it off and if drifting into the realm of objectifying is where your eyes go correct that.
She is wearing the upmarket version of the Singaporean female’s getup.
Her shorts are not too short. If you can’t take this, be prepared for a heart attack upon landing in Singapore. We wear tank-tops, short shorts plausibly shorter than this and yes, flip-flops.
She looks extremely fine to me. The bows on her shoes and the kooky watch that I have seen before somewhere on this site make me smile. Her dazzling smile doesn’t hurt either.
you’ve done it again!A small fire (like her red jacket) of comments about some appropriate inches..If i had to dress Julia Roberts to “Pretty woman” today i would dressed her like this.The magic of her indubitable beauty is instantly disappearing because of the fact of she use it in this way.
She looks great but she looks like a model or actress or something. Shorts that short are more of a London thing definitely as Kate Moss always wears them. But when Kate Moss, other celebs, and certain more hoity-toity, rich ‘bedheaded’ girls that never brush out their hair wear those short shorts around London they usually wear it with a baggy top and possibly a jacket/blazer, and usually with flat shoes.
A British magazine I read once said is that flats with short shorts take away from the ‘streetwalker’ type of effect. LOL
Also I can’t imagine wearing shorts that short around NYC because the creepy guys on every corner are sure to be yelling out every nasty thing they can think of! LOL I could never do it! A lot of things in London have changed over the many years but that kind of harassment isn’t really rampant, thank the good Lord!
I think people are forgetting that 1.) it was fashion week last week, when this photo was taken. I doubt she was wearing this to buy groceries. People dress far stranger for shows.
2.) It was 80 degrees in new york last week. I doubt she’s cold.
3.) She looks freaking amazing.
Hmmm… I have to give this one a big pause. She is absolutely gorgeous, but I don’t think the shorts do her enough justice. No camera illusions here. The lens does not lie these shorts are far too short. You can clearly see where the line of her hamstring ends and her glut begins in the first photo.
1. A mid-thigh length short would have complimented her sport coat and connected nicer with her stelletos.
2. Nill points for the cigarette. Hot in the 60′s, but this isn’t MAD MEN
3. I am digging the watch. Makes a nice conversation piece.
I think people are missing the point when they’re critiquing this girl for the length of her shorts or her bad habits. This was during fashion week, a time when people wear multilayered tutus and stuffed animal hats if they feel like it (Nicki Minaj). she looks great, she has personal style, and whether it would look good “for everyone” or “For you,” isn’t the point. it looks amazing on her. I’d like to see more of it.
She looks SASSY! I like it. I could never do that, but she just looks so wonderful! Like she knows that she looks amazing, and daring and that she has the guts to go out like that and know that every guy wants her! Very cool and brave! I am very impressed! Plus it really is an amazing composition with that great jacket, and I love cherry and black and white.
I like the outfit. She’s gorgeous beyond belief. I didn’t expect those short-shorts paired with that heel which made the outfit interesting. For me, the jacket reigned in the outfit visually and provided a nifty balance. More importantly, she’s wearing it all with confidence and seems comfortable with it. There’s nothing more beautiful or sexy than that.
It makes me sad that people are missing the point here: what could be a dowdy Chanel jacket paired with hot pants is deliciously unexpected. thats what personal style is about! She needs the heels for the proportions- it seems unfair to call her a streetwalker… Also doesn’t hurt that she pulls it off with aplomb and is GORGEOUS. Scott: let’s hope you have more of her! She’s got that “something.”
Everything about her is that she is saying I don’t give a F—. You got to love it how she freaks this fit with such confidence. Leave it to a Chanel bag and some heels to do that for you. The watch sets it off though.
I still find it so odd that this has become some sort of anti-smoking chatroom place. This is not a website about health. THis is a website about FASHION. She could be playing the violin for all I care. doesn’t reflect on the clothes. why are people writing about this like thesartorialist is about judgements of people’s PERSONALITIES???? Alessandra there, she is fashion. i LOVE it.
dang, she’s hot! i love it when women pair mature and sophisticated pieces like a quilted chanel bag or tweed, with things youthful like short shorts, or tie-up stilettos. what’s better than sexy w/ a library card?

My coder is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
