She’s beautifully put together, and it’s a great outfit.
I do wish, however, that you would branch out from this sort of “casual glamor” style that you are so fond of. Obviously outfits like this are great looking but I think there’s some elitism in the types of looks you exhibit – not in terms of price point, but in terms of the lifestyle that demands the sorts of looks you show. Obviously it is your chosen aesthetic and you are entitled to that. I just think it would be interesting to see what you think of as chic for the less socializing among us.
That the scarf is layered so as to be longer than the trench jacket is an eyecatching detail. There are so many contrasts in texture with this look that give it a “rich” appeal. The amethyst teardrop earing is a nice detail as are the similarly hued hose.
Wow, this is gorgeous. I think grey is one of the most underrated of colors, and this is simply stunning proof (the black background makes her stand out like a jewel to boot). It looks like the earrings may be picking up the purple as well–nice touch.
I love the subtlety of the colors she is wearing – the grays and violets look astounding with her blue eyes. She looks so beautifully overcast…or like she got caught up in a huge ball of denim dryer lint, but fought it off with her courageous femininity and came out looking ridiculously chic! I mean this in the best way possible.
i agree about seeing a more average person’s outfit, and maybe at least being a little more selective about which of the dressier people gets posted. but in fairness, you do showcase that more casual look sometimes.
Gray and brown not only team beautifully (a cool/warm yin/yang) but are eachartful moderators of any color you pair them with separately: brown/purple starts my motor running, while gray/purple are peaceful, even sleepy together. Brown/yellow feel like nature, but gray/yellow make a rich impression. Brown/pink: sexy, but grey/pink: romantic.
And what a small amount of purple or violet was required to make it the subject of this color story …
I love it…because the look actually looks really busy but purposeful. I love the pop of color in the belt, and the shoes are killer. I would drop off a bag if she can though, although both of them look pretty full. iTs a great play on neutrals.
Love this look: the grey is gorgeous, and her understated makeup perfectly matches the look. The touches of purple and blue liven the look, and the fabulous tights make her gentle shoes stand out. The fur adds a touch of class, while the bow is more feminine. A great play on something that might be more business-y.
to mdahl: obviously you haven’t been a sartorialist reader for too long. the sart DOES post photos of other kinds of styles, not only of ueberfashionists. I appreciate the fact that he is capable of noticing that not only the rich and beautiful have a sense of style. Ok, this look is a bit over the top, but she IS russian, and you can’t deny that she looks gorgeous. and even if i don’t walk around with two ysl bags (couldn’t even afford one) i do enjoy looking at photos of people who do. have a look at the archives.
I like the way she plays with different shades of grey. And a plus for white tights. In general I think of white tights as a very serious cliche, but this time they work perfectly fine with the rest of the outfit.
There’s too much going on. I like the different materials in play and how she contrasts shiny with matt and sheen, but it doesn’t work. If she was standing normally with her body directly forward, it’d be even more noticeable. One barely notices the ruffles on her shirt because of the scarf and her outfit makes her body look disproportionate (neck uber long, uper body is barely there) and that pose does little for that skirt and her lower body length. It’s a shame because everything individually is wonderful (except the front bag).
You can tell shes a stylist of some sort, her hair is perfect, I wonder if its all hers. I like the tights, I think it would look great without them too, and I love that high waisted skirt and the belt, she is wearing all my favorite colors. Her eyebrows bother me though, I don’t know why.
You who comment that there is “too much”, just reflect that this is a woman on the street: coat, scarf, extra bag – all into the closet when she goes inside. I see her adjusting the belt to cover that little square inch of blouse, and looking pretty complete, together and … pretty, in the blouse, belt, skirt … a romantic look for a romantic=looking woman. (Who no doubt also carries off a mini and boots with no effort.)
regardless of what is on her, the overall effect is pure elegance. this entire look as a whole is genius. alot of girls would pair this with sheer stockings or even re-arrange some other pieces and do black tights, but the legs just bring it together. seamless…. this type specific look definitely shows a mean and MASSIVE closet…
I love this look not in spite of but BECAUSE her skirt is tight, she has two big designer bags, and she’s rocking the super high-maintenance long highlighted hair. LOVE IT! And I actually do like the pale stockings.
She is great looking.Russian women love to dress so that they are noticed.Both YSL bags are great and the jacket and the belt and the dress.The color of the tights and shoes could be a bit darker. Well,anyways,there is not much more to be said.
