    LOVE the second dress…
    And the hint of brightness in the first one, so refreshing.

    that subtle orange at the sleeve gives the outfit a nice POP! and definitely keeps things interesting

    She is wonderful, isn’t she? Love the orange tights, but the smile…it’s sublime.

    love the splash of orange in the first outfit


    March 4, 2009 at 6:41 pm

    The top outfit is perfect. And she looks so interesting, as a person. I like the second one too, but the top one is the one.

    I love how she has kept the number of pieces to a minimum, yet comes across as striking due to the superb use of colors and patterns.

    The combination of black and color is so effortlessly elegant and chic. Italian women cease to amaze me with their color choices this winter, especially purple against their usual black canvas..

    Closet Couture has a story on purple in Milan this winter:

    oui very chic! intended from top til toe. but with a smile and laughter so sweet and fresh…ooh beautiful.

    So cute! I’ve noticed at the end of a bunch of runway shows in Milan that my lasting thought is how adorable the deisgner is! (i.e. Miuccia Prada, Alberta Ferretti) Something about those Italian women…

    Lovely. Like the bold patterns and beautiful faces.

    I love the tights on both of these ladies. Yay tights! Yay taking it past black!

    But honestly, if I go to the store and have nothing to choose from but horizontal stripes … yikes. There’s a window for horizontal stripes that goes from infancy to about twenty.

    Love the purse in the second photo. Love the necklace and the buttons in the first.

    I heart her hair. Wish I had the guts to be able to pull it off.

    that’s brilliant. i love how her outfit draws your eye vertically until you hit the susprise pop of orange of her tights – such a genius ensemble!

    stunning. there’s something very delicate but bold about the way she chose her outfit. it’s simple but telling.

    I love her looks. I don’t know why it should be, but winter clothes are so much more chic than summer clothes.

    why are the backgrounds black? are these studio shots? for what purpose?

    that first skirt is amazing. international resolution for all women to own a few blazers?

    LOVE these outfits so much! I'm in love with that 2nd dress (Balenciaga?) & coat, just gorgeous!!! A pop of colour with an otherwise black-outfit is just perfection!

    Adorable woman, adorable combinations. Give her parents the keys to the city for producing such a marvel!

    Top pic is blk & wht re-imagined skillfully. I'd wear this in a heartbeat.

    Bottom pic is blk & navy really nicely done. I'd wear this like tomorrow.

    Beautiful, very stylish…she looks gorgeous in both outfits, but i particularly love the second one…

    quel effect in the first picture with the orange. I still prefer the second picture, it’s very fresh.

    Both are beautiful and meet exactly my taste.
    The background is also great.
    Look like studio-photos

    I like the combination of color and black. Something different than what those swedish (girls) people are wearing: completely black, which I don’t like.
    If you wear allll black, it’s always good. And therefore not very risky. I have more respect for people who are combining colors. It’s extremely hard to combine colors and look very well at the same time.

    Those orange tights are spectacular! Thank you for showing a great example of using color to add excitement to an outfit!

    i love both these shots – she has great style and really knows how to wear clothes and be photographed. Reminds me of the very good observation someone made the other day about knowing how to use one colour properly, rather than mixing lots of colours at the same time; i’ve been thinking about that a lot.

    Red, white and blue, my favorite color combo!
    And I love the shinny shoes!

    Love the beads in the first photo and the way the beads match the battons on the coat.

    The skirt in the first pic is mesmerizing. Who did it?

    All else that she’s wearing with it makes it look even cooler. The big plastic beads and buttons with the patent clutch are a symphony.

    ABSOLUTELY adore the bottom outfit. that dress is amazing – looks fantastic against the black-drop

    I love the look of colored tights with a neutral outfit for balance. If your legs are good, why not? Michael Kors was wrong when he advised against colored tights. Maybe he thought others would wear it with matching clothes, in which case I agree. But he didn’t say how chic it could look when worn this way. I love wearing my red Wolford tights.

    Hey Scott, what’s the word on that dark background? Can you fill us in?
