    Beautiful and classic with some edge. The scarf and cut of the coat are lovely. Love those shorter bell sleeves on a coat paired with long gloves!

    I must retell this short story. I was in the gym at the University of Maryland when I overheard a classmate recalling his weekend in Manhattan. "It's the best place on earth" he recounted. "The tail- Oh man, it's not like LA girls, man. They're… classy. And smart."
    Thank you Sart for capturing these beautiful women that give our city its depth. Thank you women for giving our men something to work for.

    Great scarf: it livens up the outfit. I like the classical cut of the coat too. It feels like a modern version of an old Balenciaga shape…

    What a wonderful photograph of a beautiful and stylish woman. She is dressed in separates which has become a standard for me. I believe one can pull off a much richer look if you really know how to put them together. The flash of color, via her scarf, closes the deal. The scarf was a perfect way to bring out her delicate features with the dark hair and very little makeup. She doesn't need makeup, how fantastic is this? As I add to my Spring/Summer wardrobe piece by piece, you never fail to inspire me through these photographs. Thank you Scott!

    Love the scarf-adds just enough color to the look, but doesn't distract from it. Also the shorter coat sleeves are an interesting switch from a traditional winter coat.

    How do I really adore – when classy, beautiful, chic woman looks like a LADY!!!
    Sometimes, I do regret that women nowadays (often) forget about that – how adorable was Grace Kelly / Jackie Kennedy-Onassis way of feminine expression…. instead of showing all physical attributes and being focused on how to emphasise them all the time…

    It's a nice portrait, but I honestly can't see her outfit, other than the scarf. She's very attractive, but if we're talking fashion here, I need a clearer view. Not saying it's a bad pic, just that I can't see the clothes, accessories, etc.

    So how did she tie the scarf? I tried doing this today with an enormous silk Delvaux scarf, and it just kept slipping out. Either it was tight and too small or big and poofy but constantly slipping apart. Does anybody have a link to a scarf-tying site?
