    i’d encourage her to get some jewelry up top to balance out the boots, but that is just me.

    great boot, the catch the eye! also I like the combination of the denim jacket with a short over-jacket… I usually wear the denim jacket under a long coat, so this is definitely inspirational :)

    Wow, she makes dreary old London look sunny and bright! Love the overall effect, but the best accessory is that knowing smile of hers! Yes, she knows she looks great!

    Wow! she’s beautiful. I love the textures, the wool blazer, chambray shirt under, and the studded shoes. She makes something very masculine – double-breasted, peak-lapel blazer feel very powerfully feminine.

  32. Maria

    February 25, 2009 at 7:53 pm

    she’s doesn’t seem to be wearing make up and her hair is simply pulled back… everything is simple except for the boots and that is the best part! she doesn’t need anything else, like jewelry. the layers are enough on top.

    The smooth material of her gray jacket and the refined sleek designer shoes are counter-balanced by the casual jean material of her shirt. It’s like a yin-yang effect.

    The girl behind doesn’t look that bad. I probably would have gone for a longer coat but I like the shape and colour of her shoes, like the colour of her jacket and everyone needs a big scarf in london right now.

    DB + Denim + Gucci Boots = Very, very well done.

    I love the simple details: the cuff of her jeans, the classic-shaped bag, the subtle show of denim and tee shirt underneath, the simple hair.

    Very chic and very French, no? A Paris street shot almost.

  77. crowsfeet

    February 26, 2009 at 11:32 am

    Obviously her feet don’t touch the ground – she has each one in a glass of champagne. Her clothes are very very lovely, but she is so beautiful she’d make a wet burlap sack look good. She is a study in effortless grace, in contrast to the woman behind her, who looks like she is pleading with her brand new boots to please not flip her face down onto the pavement.

    Love those boots! And yes, you can wear a double-breasted jacket open as long as it fits like this. I wish she had worn little bit of makeup. It would not have spoiled her fresh-faced look, it would be like adding a frame to a beautiful picture.

Not so much!! The fit seems all wrong to me and i’m not loving the boots. Might look better from the front though.

    Denim jacket + wool blazer… Wow, I might have seen this combo tenths of times before but now I finally got inspired to take the step! – at least conciously (and, for once, graciously).
    Um, guess the nipped waist helps if you don’t want to look all stuffed up.
    PS. Garance should absolutely make a “Shop Your Closet” article about it! Wait up, I’m going off to check if she already did ;’)
