    J'adore this look! Menswear is so awesome on women…makes me think of amazing ladies like Marlene Dietrich and Diane Keaton. Especially loving the hat and the oxfords…

    She looks kind of scruffy, but then check out her nails, and you realize she's groomed. Love the bag though.

    I would love all of these pieces as separates. I think on her the proportions are making her look much shorter.

    She sure looks like someone I worked with in the 90s. Dale – is that you?

    I'm not crazy about the jumpsuit, or the overall proportions. Love the hat, shoes and bag, though. The jumper looks like pyjamas to me….

    blue collar jumpsuit i'm in to it. in fact, i'm so all over that, that i'm doing it.

    to be honest, i think the combination is a bit weird. i don't think it's too flattering.

    Masculine(the coat,the shoes)/Femenine(the bag)
    Worker(boiler suit)/Bourgeois(the hat)
    Nature colors(blue,green,brown)/Urban image
    and perhaps a smile and a homage to the marvellous Jeanne Moreau in "Jules et Jim"(Truffaut,1961)

    the color palette of this whole outfit goes together so nicely, and oh boy that hat…

    love the browns and blues.

    Awful. Looks like she's put on a pair of pyjamas and her boyfriend's accessories. Why are some London photos so bad? London has great fashion.

    This looks like her dog or cat got out early one morning and she didn't have time to change before running out on the street in search of it.

    I love her style, especially the bag … but I don´t like the blue & green combination (in my opinion)

    Not. Trying too hard for irony.

    I have no idea how, but she really knows how to pull off that tartan jumpsuit! It would probably look hideous on anyone else.

    Not seeing anything flattering about this ensemble, it looks like an effort made that I am not quite understanding. However, I do like the pieces just not as one look.

    Looks like a YSL downtown bag (since someone asked). God bless Balenciaga and YSL for keeping bag styles in their line for a few years so that they don't "expire" one season later…

    I could appreciate many of these pieces separately, but she's attempting too many menswear-inspired pieces simultaneously. Subtlety is key.

    As someone else said, she is probably the only woman who could pull this off. Diane Keaton looked fabulous in menswear back in her Annie Hall days, and she still looks good today. But I doubt if even Diane could handle a jumpsuit as well as this lady does.

    I think she has to decide whether she wants to look masculine or feminine. Androgenous she isn't, not with the zip unzipped. Right now she looks like a harlequin. Maybe she just needs to comb her hair and ruffle the hat.

    The combination of the jumpsuit and the coat is so unexpected!!!!!It looks like she just woke up and didn't worry too much about what to wear. It's a different style. I liked this daring combination!!!

    major props for trying, but missed the mark in my opinion. i would have preferred pajamas a la D&G S09. everything else looks fab, though, and i appreciate the concept.

    I love this woman! it's not easy to dress in this way. The risk is loosing the "feminine". But not in this case. A look for "a few happy".

    I like this look + the individual pieces: the jumpsuit, coat, accessories and I like the tartan fabric – all in all it looks comfortable and fun…

    Awful. I wouldn't walk my dog in this. Its this sort of fashion I don't understand, what on earth makes this nice that some are saying they love it? Seriously? The jumpsuit thing doesn't really fit and its just old looking. The whole thing is just confusing to me.

    I love this… surprised it's getting such a hard time. I mean, should she have had the same shoe-boots every other woman does here? This is true personal style, not following a trend.

    Lose the bracelets and it works. The groomed nails are absolutely necessary for this to work. What about a sleek chignon for the hair? Tied with a flower perhaps?

    I love her quirkiness. I love that she dresses for her age and for her life today.
    You know she will be an elegant womenin the future. Perhaps feature in someone's favorite vintage photographs in the decades to come ?
