There is not one thing that I don't love love love about her…She is a great example of how the fit should look for baggy trousers,the whole look is a perfect balance of styling and no other hairdo would work so wonderfully for her. The glasses, watch, and shoes rock! This is a keeper :o)
Everything about this is beautiful. What makes it special, for me, is the gold tones of the watch, necklaces, belt buckle and of course, those gorgeous shoes. It is always details like this that soften such a masculine look and haircut. That and the exquisite cut of her jacket, the oversize but neat pants. These details are what make this so fabulous.
*****This look is similar to the look of "On the Street….Yasmin, London", from Oct. 9, 2009. Usually I wouldn't comment on the surface element of a look, choosing instead to be inspired by the energy and individual style… That said, this look, the gigantic pants cutting off at mid-calf does NOTHING positive for these women. They look like, Dorf, the character made famous by Tim Conway. I still love the energy here, but it looks like a well-styled, modern 'Dorf'.
10:02, They're moccasins, not Oxfords. As much as I fell in love with the shoes for their print, the fuzziness and shaping does rather make them look like bedroom slippers. If only they were a slightly more shaped form, or a smooth print instead of actual FUR…
Anon 11:18 AM, I don't know what you're seeing but from the perspective of a hot-blooded Italian male let me tell you that there's nothing feminine that's bestowed upon a woman who wears masculine clothing. Alessandra is playing on her androgyny and she does it well. Just leave it at that.
I think this woman is divine. Whoever above said that the pants are at mid-calf and cut her off…I don't agree. The pants are closer to ankle-length. Whilst I wouldn't wear this look in pants, myself, I love te way taht she has styled this look. Lovely.
Anon 11:20: Tim Conway! I loved him on Carol Burnett. I guess we are another generation. That is why we wouldn't pick her look for ourselves. I think she looks cool and put-together, while being comfortable. She is lucky to be lanky to pull it off. With another 20 pounds she'd still be considered thin by most people but the outfit wouldn't look as interesting. Things to steal: "matching" a leopard print with black and khaki solids. And the rounds of gold from her glasses, continuing down the front of her top with the necklaces. However, every time I see a woman with her toes pointed in, I can hear my physical therapist, chiding, "turn your knees out!!!!" Just wait, girls, it will get you later in the lower back.
i could jump up and down over this one. usually don't like animal print of any kind. too something……not sure what. pretentious? LOVE the khaki pant, tee and jacket w/ the flat leopard shoe. the medallions at the neck and short hair and glasses. she's good! would ike to hang with her.
Wonderful Alessandra! We've seen another shot of her with rolled up, wide leg trousers (I think it was jeans) and it's unexpectedly chic. Those medallions are not easy to wear, yet with them she managed to amp the cool factor of that simple look tenfold. Che bravura.
I know I will be crucified for this one, but other than the tailoring (which would be a wardrobe option for ANYONE with the right income), there isn't much special to speak of regards to her style. I've seen much more enigmatic personal style on this blog alone. I'm sure she's a lovely person, but I don't think her clothes are worthy of these accolades.
I love it all. I'm not as crazy about her shoes as others – and not because of the print, but because they look too big – almost bedroom slipper-ish. I think a ballet flat or Todd loafers would look better.
Everything about this picture is so right, and yet it's more than the sum composite of its parts (which are certainly chic on their own). It's the playful toe-in of the right foot, the elegant wrists offset by the wide belt, and the straight-faced elegance. It makes me want to raid my father's closet and pray the snow melts overnight.
