    I love that she's bundled up but can still shows off her legs. If I had her legs, I'd do the same!

    the cropped and rolled jeans not only show off the shoes, but make the whole outfit perfectly gamine.

    You know about the Japanese shiver therapy? Wear very little on your legs which causes shivering and so builds up muscles (= slim legs). Slightly masochistic, but if we want to look that good the only way to go, I guess.

    She has legs to beat the band but the proportions are all wrong with grown up high heels. This intense leggy look is something we shall look back on and know we had it wrong.

    Perhaps on young girls with little shoes. But that's it.

    A newer take on what has become THE silhouette in womens fashion. Shorter jeans on longer legs accentuate their length even more. Jardin des Tuileries is where it's at!

    I do love the tights and shoes. She is gorgeous.

    I love her style but Scott please, can we NOT have smoking depicted in your photos? Like it or not, people look to you as an arbiter of style. Depicting smoking as chic and sexy is dangerous and irresponsible. Smoking is deadly. Images like this must have the tobacco companies licking their lips. I'm sorry to sound off like this. I am an avid reader of your blog and I love your beautiful photos but the smoking thing really rankles. PS I'm a reformed smoker. My husband still smokes, having taken up the habit at 13.

    she's not wearing her coat as a dress, her skirt underneath the coat is just tiny.

    she has a wonderful look of confidence about her. both outfits look great.

    I might then be one of the few who do not like this pictures… I find the girl…I do not know… too "average"… I do not feel as if she wears a miniskirt with a jacket, but as if she has forgotten the skirt… I can't find a better way to explain it…!!
    And I would have liked the second outfit if she hadn't worn the hoosiery? I don't know…I do not like these outfits!! I have to say… one of the rare outfits at the sartorialist that i haven't enjoyed, anyway…

    I just love the Addidas Chile 62s in the background. I'm still devasted that mine fell to pieces from overwear and that they are no longer made in my size…

    Oh and both girls look stunningly stylish, although I can't help thinking that full length jeans would suit the second better than the cropped pair she's sporting.

Depicting smoking as chic and sexy is dangerous and irresponsible. Smoking is deadly. Images like this must have the tobacco companies licking their lips."

    Sigh…how many times do we have to go through this? Scott is a street fashion photographer. These are not photo shoots, they are "slices of life"… as it is. He doesn't say, "here hold this, it'll look good" and hand them a cigarette. He shoots people as they are, and the fact is, people smoke, so once in a while there will be pictures of people smoking. What I find more disturbing if your need to "censor reality" by making it seem as if nobody smokes. You'd rather he put a big "censored" bar over the cigarette? ridiculous.

    Lovely shots – but I want to raise the issue of wearing such a short skirt in Paris (and I wonder – is it the same elsewhere?) outside the cosseted high fashion world. It. is. IMPOSSIBLE. The hassle you get on the street in Paris in a mini-skirt is ridiculous and totally alienating. Much safer to just wear jeans or below-the-knee skirts. Misogyny still rules, and I'm afraid you're fair game in a mini-skirt.

    Thats pretty insane. Women in the USA wear short skirts, and short shorts all summer long. No one bothers us. I HATE covering my legs, and wear shorts or skirts, always above the knee (I like the look of long skirts, but they make me look shorter) and usually well above mid thigh. Sure you get the occasional yell, but so what? You must live in a very, very bad neighborhood indeed. Even in Chicago no one bothers me. And i am certainly not hideous. In most college towns you will never see a covered leg on a younger woman in nice weather. Besides, if you are afraid of assault, that usually happens regardless of what you wear. Its more likely to happen if you are looking intimidated, or like you don’t pay attention to surroundings. So don’t worry, wear short skirts if you like same as everyone else.
