I love the ensamble, truly I do. It does, however, remind me of the first week of spring quarter in college when the students are wearing their new spring clothes when it is still too cold. Oh, but she looks fab!!! Jorge from WPB
i love the way she’s working big shoulders by pairing them with a simply cut dress in a striking and unusual print. The jacket is fabulous, i like the cuffs and the black leather gloves are a perfect detail. she looks great!
Im I the only one who thinks her legs look like stumps in those boots? I think this lady is beautiful, but the combination of bare legs plus gloves just doesnt seem appropriate for the weather, let alone the flimsy summerdress.
Boots without stockings is an interesting choice; the flesh tone helps balance the black and the wild print. A risk on a cold day, but it works with the rest of the look. I also like the touch of the gloves.
So very pretty…it is a shame there is not a leaf on a tree! I am afraid there is a long way to go before she is warm in this dress!! Exacting style nonetheless. Time for you to head to Sicily…it is so much sexier and warmer…I would love to see this dress without the jacket because I am sure it is not meant to be so covered up!!
Paris is bleak. Thank God for the fashion, the gorgeous women, hot men and perfect croissants!! All I can remember is my little school Lycee Lamartine during the winter months…I was never so cold. I bought a pink dyed denim jacket with fake pink fur underneath it and wore it over my spring dresses ….just cuz it was dreary and I liked color! Guess global warming hasn’t had an effect yet!
How did she pull off such a forceful look and still appear sweet and approachable? I love the color of her dress and how it’s paired with the black. I’m really admiring the shiney black boots that make your legs look as if they’ve been inserted into a bucket, find it playful and charming, I guess.
I rarely comment on your posts, but I had to stop and express my admiration for her dress. The colours just bring to mind everything wonderful about a spring garden coming into bloom–pansies and crocus and irises.
If it’s so cold that you must wear a jacket, scarf, and gloves, then it’s probably too cold to sport bare legs. However, she is wearing a lovely, floaty dress, and I can understand her wanting to usher in the spring!
Christine Centenera, she’s an Aussie fashion journo (nice to see her flying the hypercolour flag in a Josh Goot). I still love the leather skirt look from last year but that’s just more me, I suppose. I think some stockings would balance this a bit, but what I love is that it’s not too trendy – you’ve got the platforms and the shoulders, but they’re incidental to the DRESS. Give us a smile, though, love!
I think this ensemble is beautiful, strange and brave — the finely sculpted shoulders a pair of the few I’ve enjoyed “big”; the dress at first glance I thought was a piece of liquid floating art superimposed — but, speaking of art, why am I reminded of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”?
This is a great combination although I was a bit disappointed to hear she’s an Australian just as I was getting excited about Parisians getting into Josh Goot. A great demonstration of Josh’s fluid looks anyway
Trust me – when her boots hit the pavement, the clouds couldn’t have parted fast enough…and that Parisian sun shone like it has never before. This is STUNNING. “Blade Runner” melded with delicate tulip petals. Again, nothing short of perfect.
Amazing! I JUST LOVE HOW THE STRUCTURED HARD-LOOKING JACKET MIXES WITH THE FLUENT BRIGHT DRESS AND AT THE SAME TIME HOW THE DRESS GOES RIGHT INSIDE THE BOOTS (YELLOW TOO) THAT, LIKE THE JACKET, ARE STRUCTURED AND HARD. WOW!
(I have to say im not a fan of the dress, she looks hot)
Beautiful Josh Goot dress on Christine who always looks great albeit weather inappropriate (tank + scarf, gloves + bare legs)! I believe Josh created the prints by pouring colours onto his pc scanner and having the pictures made up on fabric! Very striking effect on a grey Parisian day anchored nicely by the black on-trend (read, chic but everywhere!) jacket and YSL booties.
This season, I loved all the EDITRIX and Voguettes wearing Balmain jackets with their shades of BLACK leggings, jeans, leather pants, etc. This Aussie girl BLEW them out of the water with her FRESH TAKE on a gorgeous black jacket. She KILLED IT AT THE TRENCHES & PITS on a European gray day. "Parisian Look" is the trend this season, but she's ahead of the trend! THANKS SART.
wow, super super super!!! that is one example of how to look like in a high end fashion magazine without looking like you had simply copied the looks of hig end fashion magazines! bcause her style looks genuinly like her`s!
i kind of love how she doesn’t really let the weather dominate her style choices (like the nyc pic late last year). at the same time, i think its crazy and wouldnt do it myself because i would without a doubt get ill!
either way, im glad to see a stylish aussie woman grace the pages of the sartorialist, and even more excited to see a beautiful dress by an australian designer featured so prominently.
Not sure who the jacket is by, but she was photographed wearing it in the March 2008 Australian Harper’s Bazaar. So she had it Before Balmain’s Spring 2009 show…so you would have to say she was in style beofore the other international editors. Go Aussie!
This girl definitely has some fashion sense. The combination of black and those wild and luscious colors is just outstanding. I love how the black leather jacket and ankle boots compliment the dress. MARVELOUS!
