    I do love grey. Navy suits it well.

    Immaculate as always… I guess it’s only fair now that she pops a picture of you on her site!

    I agree with sidneyschaefer… Graceful Garance… A beautiful woman.

    too safe & expected….i'm all for simplicity but looks like a gap ad

    Sigh. I do wish Garance would adopt me. Maybe some of her effortless elegance would rub off on me in time. A girl can dream, can’t she?

    Garance Dore! Some people might think this is boring, but I don’t think they get it. She looks extremely gracefully. I adore her and her blog.

    I love the texture and hand of a boiled wool or walk coat. the grey and navy look natural together.

    Aaah Garance. It’s great to see the person behind the blog, and she’s incredibly stylish ! Her scarf looks amazing, this navy colour…

    I can’t stop looking at those shoes. The shape of the toe, the heel –perfect walking-around shoes.
    And the lady is a natural beauty.

    Like her shoes, nicely worn in. I always imagine people in eternal pain wearing shoes that are too new. Great ensemble that doesnt have to cost a lot of money! Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Her hair is what really makes this look work. Even though the jacket is pretty unstructed, it would look weird with boring pin straight hair. She really carries herself so well, and it does not appear at all that she is putting on a show or posing like some others. She seems so naturally graceful. Wonderful lady!

    Her blog is great. I’m so glad it’s also in English now.

    As for what she’s wearing It’s very elegant and easy and utilitarian. I particularly love the boy shoes and that coat.

    She’s really lovely and comes across in her blog as equally lovely on the inside.

    Breathtaking serenity. I’m reminded of what Almasy said about Katharine in the English Patient – K’s clothes always at ease on her. Beautiful shot.

    I would love to see a photo blog that’s full of fashion photographers taking photos of each other. No joke. More often than not, I find the photographers much more interesting than their subjects.

    Ah, Garance… Her blog too leaves me on cloud 9.

    Your photographing her is like Renoir & Monet painting together!

    I make it a great day by starting off with you Sart and the lovely Garance! A match made in heaven.

    I will be moving to Paris soon and I hope to run into Her Chicness on the street.

    As lovely as her pictures. What I love the most about her is that she takes pictures of subjects that have a similar appeal to her. She usually avoids the over-processed, too done up look.

    What do you call that type of sleeve? There is a coat by Opening Ceremony that is cut that way. She’s lovely, this lady.

    Merci pour ces aperçus de Garance, Mr Sartorialist.
    Despite the fact she talks a lot about style, and sometimes of hers, she never shows it on her own blog, certainly for ‘shyness’ (maybe I would rather use the word ‘pudeur’ in french).
    We readers must be all glad to see that she is as stylish as her photos, texts and drawings.
    (I have absolutely no clue how she manages to get this sweet ‘halo’ of light crowning the head of her models, but she seems to carry it on her head…)
    Apologies if my English appears to be dysfunctional!

    my boyfriend looked over my shoulder while I was looking at this photo and said, “Who is she? She looks French…”

    I looked at him amazed.

    A style so beautiful and defined that someone who has not much idea about it can look at a photo and see it. Gorgeous.

    You’re very romantic when your hair is down. You should do it more often, practical or not.

    By now this shot is a few years old, so I want to ask if Ms Dore still wears this coat? I’m rather envious of its beauty,warmth (I assume) and its adaptability. Tres belle e tres chic… (I hope that’s correct French).
