    Love the YSL shoes! Love love love the fierce attitude!
    Dress in purple my friend!

    Maybe I would choose a less obvious bag; more obscure bad ass bag. This balenciaga V3 is so Disney.

    Yes, the shoes. Love the shoes. However when I opened the photo, the coat really stands out – such a subtle colour and so beautiful.

    with her petite size, those shoes look like gigantic muppet feet. purple mary janes are cool idea with black, but i am sick of that trandy and ridiculous YSL platform.

    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.

    Nice photo. Very, very sexy. Delicious. Normally I am not a fan of leggings or tight denim, but I think the look works for her here. It works for me, at least. Well done.

    If she had blond hair, she’d look like an Olsen twin. Love, love, love the jacket. And I don’t care if the bag is considered ubiquitous or passé.

    Normally I’m one to roll my eyes at all the played out designer items that women can pile on but those YSL heels do not die . They’re just too good.

    Agreed the look is widely circulated but I know who this girl is and she’s one who started it out anyway.

    It looks like YSL wanted to make higher heels than Christian Louboutin ;)

    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 don’t mean this as a criticism, but, who can wear shoes like that? Where do they go? What do they do? I suffer in my 3 inch stacked heels…

    To the point, she looks amazing.

    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.

    Hmm – she looks great but it’s not individual … she has just completed copied the Olsens – piece by piece … even the cigarette! She does look good though.

    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.

    No one has mentioned that she looks like a lady just, err, coming off the, uhh, “night shift?”


    There’s a mention of high end accessories in this outfit but it’s one that can be replicated most anywhere…although I’m not sure why.

    Wow, I’m mean. Must say that the purple is nice-like, though.

    The color of that coat really flatters her face, it brights out her lips and cheek color so nicely.

    The shoes: no no no! The proportions look very silly on her frame.

    The whole look screams “fashion victim” to me. I’m not one for the runways–sure I love them, but on the runway. I don’t like a copycat look in real life, down to the last detail.

    These shoes also look painful. No one can lie and tell me they’re not.

    Maybe they’re contributing to the way she is hunching…

    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)?

    I think she looks great, if you have the attitude to Work the look or any look for that matter, I say go for it.

    I am biased, I love Balenciaga and those skinnies.

    well the shoes have a crazy platform on them so they’re probably not as uncomfortable as they look.

    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.

    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 agree with Emma. shoes that high with a platform isn’t that hard to walk in. I have a pair like that and I do just fine.

    Sure, the more you walk in heels, the more you get used to them–but why bother? Men don’t have to do that to their feets or backs, so why should women?

    If you want to look taller and thinner, lose some weight, streamline your clothes, and wear a reasonable, under 2 inch heel.

    About more expensive heels: YSL heels are out of almost the entire world population’s price range, so I don’t think of that as a particularly useful solution to the pain of heels.

    Flats shouldn’t be an indulgence.

    I’m tired of the pictures of so many heels, because it creates the perception, like fashion mags and TV, that thats what women *should* wear because that’s what they *look best* in.

    Fight it! I’m not saying throw on bulky running shoes, but cute flats or small heels can be just as chic as these purple monsters.

    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.”

    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
