The shoes are a bit too aggressive for my liking, although I guess simple pumps might look a bit twee with the femininity of the whole look. The hair is great; nice to see a classic symmetrical bob, not one of these ubiquitous angular Victoria Beckham-copycat cuts that often don't suit the girls they're on.
Yes very dramatic, very lovelyâ€¦ but the pedant in me must say flaxen haired she is most certainly not! Raven haired yes. La fille aux cheveux de lin was a blond, i would image a silvery strw blond at that. lol! As always i love your photos
I always find images of black clothing difficult to admire on screen or in print. Especially in this pose as it's too hard to see what she is wearing, the textures, the draping or if it even fits her properly.
Apart from the horribly distracting charbucks cup (in a Paris park no less!) I like the photo anyway.
For me, this shot is about the black. Obviously! But, it's great how she mixes busier pieces like the top and the shoes in with the solid black of her hair, shades, and skirt. It makes the look fresh and gives it an edge.
She looks great! Who cares what brand of bean she is sipping?
She is about the best thing in the good old U.S. right now. Great look and great style. Oi Mr S. looking foward to your book deal in L.A. next week. Think I'll roll up from the L.B.C. for that one. Safe flight my son.
While everyone commented on the very obvious element (i.e., the shoes), I am rather surprised that no one commented on the lovely symmetry between the shoes and the blouse. The repetition of the dot motif is a little too studied to be purely accidental. Beyond that, the almost piano-like gloss of her black skirt and black hair (repeated in the light bouncing off the sunglasses), along with that perfect tangle of limbs leaves me wondering why all the fuss about the shoes when there is so much else to get excited about here. [For the record, I will state that I am a bona-fide shoe fanatic myself.] There is also the great joy of looking at a picture and seeing someone who clearly knows that she is aware of seeing and being seen.
I literally can not wait till I am older and can pull of this look. She can pull of all black with studs on her shoes without looking like a goth. SO chic. Perhaps the coffee, sunglasses and phone equal it out. The french do it so well.
As I read these comments about her cup. Hey, our fault why do we have starbucks at all in Paris if we are going to complain about an American girl liking it.? Different culture, so she is right to take if she likes. When I go to NY I NEVER take Starbucks.Am always looking for my coffee and food. Great shot Sart!
Wow, who can even SEE that cup amongst the awe-inspiring beauty of the leaves, the light against the contrast of her chic black. She's fabulous from her head to her toes. It's true that cliched-cup has become the new cliched-cigarette.
Someone I recognize!!! Leigh Lezark will always have a special place in my heart. I've always loved her style. Although this isn't a favorite outfit for me, she looks great — and I love her shiny blacker-than-black hair. Who cares about the cup?
I don't understand how leigh lezark is so beautiful. she is truly ethereal and I love how she uses what she can to communicate her ladylike edginess in her style. she is one of my style icons! that blouse is wonderful. and thanks scott for the contrast in this photo, really nice against the greens.
I didn't know about this girl, upon googling her up, I discover she is a pretty cool customer, the kind of gal I would like to be friends with. I like that she dresses all in black, that is her niche and she is unapologetic about it. I wish to see more pictures of her, now!
