Wow this is got to be favorite ever post!!!! I read everyday. This woman is just so beautiful, and she rocks a style tend to I rock. She does it with sincerity and pleasure, so it doesn’t look like overstatement. I am really getting a lot of joy out of this one. THANK YOU.
not a big fan of this look. the first thing i want her to do is put out the cigarette. the shoes with those skinny jeans just looks out of proportion. then on top you have this puffy big collar jacket, i don’t think it works. and the bag has too many ginormous studs all over it, distracts from her tiny frame. beautiful woman but would look much better in something else.
I’d be sure to turn an ankle in those YSLs, but I admire her for braving the streets of NYC in them! Or maybe she’s just waiting for her car? She’s super-chic, with the low-key makeup and dusky purple fur combined with the grape-colored shoes.
I find this look is an example of ‘so wrong, it’s right.’ A fur chubby, a gaudy bag and sky-high hooker shoes done in cheap materials or worn with less insouciance would undoubtedly be an eyesore. But here it looks cool and chic – quality and attitude make the fashionista.
Now, this is an ultra-trendy look that will probably look silly this time next year when the cri has a new dernier, but for the momemt this lady is rocking with the big girls.
FIERCE. And I don’t care what anyone says, that bag and those shoes are perfect, perfect on girls like this. Love her fur too. You can’t just buy things because they are obscure, and if you have the money I doubt you care who else has it.
I’d love to see a photo of her and Terry Richardson together. I’m laughing, thinking of him in jeans and plaid flannel. On the other hand I had been asking myself, is she fashionable (copying the Olsen twins) or stylish (expressing a personal outlook)?
Yes, to walk in high hills like this purple beauties is a sport mastered by the ones that persevere in the practice of walking in them (on a regular base) like moi. If you stop and indulge in flip flops and flats you will be punished by the lovely creatures and out of revenge they will hurt. The best is to walk with them all the time, this particular purple model is an ideal trainer shoe because of its good quality nature and the big platform.
Advice: To buy cheap shoes is dangerous you can even loose toe nails! and have back problems…, expensive shoes are engineered in a way that makes it easy to walk long distances with them. I have run for my life in YSL, Manolos and Prada and they saved me.
i think she looks great. awesome to see cool girls uptown with the downtown look. wish there were more of us…sart- keep up the good work- would love to see more of these looks shot around 10021. rock on homegirl. xx
Maybe I’m just partial to softer looks, but this screams “expensive escort” to me. And not in a good way. I don’t find her look edgy; instead it seems to tap into the rather tired vein of fashion that likes to troll through cultural seediness and add luxe fabrics in order to make it “fierce.” -Sofie v.

well said sofie. i love heels, but hate being held back. does overt sexiness (in which i too have been known to indulge) have to be the only attractive form of power for women?
the powerful and chic businesswoman’s uniform is a tailored suit and heels. she looks powerful, which is sexy, and vice-versa. which came first, though? it seems the power that exudes from her clothes is in the sex appeal. the alternative power symbols, such as shoulder pads, are less socially appealing. clearly, there’s a world of options in between, but you get my point.
heels are a prime contradiction to “form follows function.” they’re not actually powerful, they’re hindering. they might make us taller, but even the most seasoned stomeper can easily be unsteadied. while people aren’t typically thinking “look at those heels. i could easily knock her flat on her ass” it’s a subliminal signal of delicacy and weakness, which is safer and less intimidating, wherein lies the appeal.

High-quality leather doesn’t change the physics of a high-heel. I like to feel like I could hop a fence, dance all night, and otherwise get into trouble, and that would never happpen for me in heels like that!
OMG first of all, how does she look like an escort? She’s covered from neck to ankle…i don’t think hookers are that covered up…second, whats up with all the hating on the heels? if YOU can’t walk in super high heels thats OK but if SHE can thats cool too…I personally would die if i didnt have my 5 inch heels AND my flats, and could it be so simple as she just liked the shoe? and lastly, it annoys me to no end when people say that someone is copying an celebrity…why is that she’s copying them? She could have been rocking this look for years, the only difference is that they have a paparazzi problem, and if you going to any fashion capital: NY, Paris, Milan, Tokyo you’ll see that their style really isnt that unique and that tons of girls dress in the same style that they do
the bag is timeless the heels are dangerously atractive the color s no bad the whole thing should be beta but this ll go why not stop being so borin olsen are olsen the thing is that they look comfy and cosy there s no any of them here anywaay
