Judging by her look of confidence (which I like I lot), you'd think she'd be wearing something classy. Can't stand that look which screams lazy to me as nothing goes with anything. The skirt makes hes hips large whereas I'm sure it's because of the shape.
Oh! Her scarf! Just beautiful. I knit myself (you admired my scarf at the signing in Dublin – didn't tell you I'd made it myself, too shy!), would love to do something like this, it's very clever. Who said blue and green should never be seen? And I love the way it picks up the green in her blazer and the tiny bit of blue in the plaid on her skirt. Rockin.
I feel a bit as though the skirt is wearing her. The blazer and button-down combo is clean and classic but the proportions of the skirt are just overwhelming. I do tend to agree that because this young woman is "beautiful", we can more easily ignore what doesn't work stylistically.
Well, I just don't get it. All the clothes look too big, the scale of the plaid in the skirt is enormous, and that scarf looks like someone just learning to knit worked on it. Don't let me start on the shoes…. Oh! And those hideous shoulder pads. Never want to see them again! The only redeeming feature of the figure standing there is the face.
The world of fashion is extremely difficult for me to understand. I think she looks wonderful in this outfit. However, if I tried to wear something like this, I'd get laughed at and told it's not stylish at all. Perhaps when I stand in beautiful Paris with nothing else to do that day it might look good on me. For now, though, A&E, Abercrombie, Hollister, ect is the fashion statement. Which, I can't stand to buy a tiny top for fifty bucks, so I fail at this category, too.
hmmm. I'd like to hear The Sartorialist's comments on this one. She's lovely, but all the clothes are large – they would all look better paired with trimmer items. I'm also surprised by how 80s this looks in a dowdy way.
she's gorgeous, so she could where a shopping bag and look great. and all the individual pieces are lovely. but everything together is too much. she's drowning. especially, I feel, if she actually put the scarf on, it would be overload central on such a petite lady. the coat, the blouse and the leggings with a smaller skirt or the skirt and the blouse with a smaller top… etc…
This picture left me in some kind of 'shock and awe' – in the end I agree with a lot of the other comments: the clothes are very unflattering and the redeeming feature is her outstanding beauty (and figure…)
while the clothes may be a bit unflattering, i think she was able to pull off a chic look in general. nothing seems to fit well or is exactly proportional but she still looks self-assured and confident which is what any great outfit should do for the wearer.
love the proportions on this one. The largeness and masculinity of the clothes just makes her look more delicate. so confident too. would love to wear this and go teach and see the look on my students faces..
i love this outfit. she looks stylishly comfortable. she took some risks and is having fun with fashion. every look doesn't have to work on every person. how boring. actually. this looks like something i would wear! i even have a ring like that.
I absolutely adore this shot. If I look at it long enough I could say that the skirt isn't properly tailored–but it doesn't matter. The way she carries the outfit is just so lovely. It's casual, modest, quietly pretty, and the mix of textures and patterns and colors makes it so intriguing. It's an outfit very much her own, and if I saw her on the street I would look twice and think how fantastic she is! I love fashion.
my first time commenting. have been following for years. She's amazing! Sop beautiful without ruining it by following the dictates of fashion. The pictures from fashion weeks made me tired. Individually some of them captured personality and individuality but taken collectively they spelled conformity. She on the other hand says, beauty is what she makes of it. Not in the eye of the beholder, not in the pages of a magazine, but at the heart of her creativity and fierce intelligence.
This looks too studied! Her hair and make-up are too perfect. It seems a stylist went out of her mind and just hĂˇd to create something new. Sorry a girl with that body and looks shouldn't look like her grandmother!
This lovely girl is so refreshing. She is not selling sex which too many young women have learned to do automatically. And when they sell themselves as sex objects they become that: objects. They lose their special autonomy.
But this girl keeps her integrity and her own inner life.
She reminds me of the beautiful heroine in Tarantino's new movie. Whomever did the costuming for that character was out of this world. I can't really describe the quality – it's something kind of heroic and "standard issue-y"
I canNOT understand the people who read a blog about individual style and then feel compelled to post comments complaining that the individuals' style is too . . . individual. Then, of course, they go on to offer suggestions on how the other person's personal style could be "improved" — i.e., made to conform.
What I love about this look is that it seems to completely ignore fashion, and that is wonderfully refreshing – fashion is great as a way to express beauty, not as a comandment. Of course, I agree with many comments on the fact that, stunning and skinny as she is, even a potato bag would look good on her. Average women tied to natural rules, as me, usually can't ignore fashion that easily
she looks like a little annie! you almost want to take her in and offer a hot cup of tea and a warm fire to sit infront off. nonetheless- i love this look. she looks warm and lovely, and that skirt is KILLER!
