      Ha! Agreed. I think it’s her striking eyebrows and defined lips. So stunning without having to try too hard.

    Lovely haircut, lovely lips, lovely eyebrows, and lovely, relaxed style. A silk blouse, slouchy blazer, and necklace = effortless chic.

    Beautiful and elegant look but the cliche smoking pose in this day and age?

    Everything about this picture is perfect, from the way her hair falls, the lipstick color she is wearing and the clothes she is wearing. Love it! An absolute good reflection of the french je ne sais quoi.

    She reminds me of Emma Watson!
    Her accessories are unmistakable for a woman – especially the hair tie!

    Scott, do french women really still smoke so much? I wonder why? Great look, minus ciggy.

    Sh’es quite beautiful and I love the brows…. but could do without the glamorizing of cigarettes…

  44. Christina

    December 17, 2012 at 12:10 pm

    Shockingly lovely. What is “so french” about it? the cigarette?

    • Matias

      December 17, 2012 at 6:51 pm

      What`s french about her? That you can easily imagine her eating good portions of cheese and drinking lots of wine every night without losing her sex appeal….I am sure she would like that line!

  45. Nika

    December 17, 2012 at 12:14 pm

    love the hair, love the make up, love the eybrows, love the arm candy, love the angle of the photo – sooooo wish that stray hair on her jacket and arm was not there!

    This has a classically cinematic feel for me. She’s gorgeous, and her look is refined and sophisticated without being “groomed.” Unlike some other commenters, I like the stray hairs on the jacket–they keep the look human and unfussy. After all, there are few things more boring and unappealing than “perfection”!

  58. berenger

    December 17, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    I don’t really get this. She’s a good looking girl, quite smart with nice textures, but not really remarkable for me… There is nothing here that can compensate for the fag, not for me anyhow. Very pretty but a bit average otherwise.

  59. JV

    December 17, 2012 at 2:06 pm

    Flawless. Every detail. Especially the eyebrows. Gorgeous.

    Just wanted to add, can we can it with the “OMG smoking” comments. Christ on a crutch. We get it, you don’t like smoking. TONS of people smoke. Tough shit.

    • berenger

      December 17, 2012 at 3:59 pm

      Please do not tell me or anyone else not in collusion with bad manners to ‘can it’. Millions of people find smoking disgusting, and they are free to comment, just as you are. I’m surprised Scott allowed such rudeness on his blog.

      • JV

        December 18, 2012 at 2:31 am

        I’m not telling, I’m asking, hence the “can we” at the beginning of the sentence (although I admit to forgetting the question mark, oops).

        It’s pretty obvious at this point, 5+ years into the blog, that the photographer is not put off by people smoking, at least not enough to avoid shooting and posting pictures of them. People smoke. Some of those people are quite fashionable. The two are neither mutually exclusive nor inclusive. In light of this, I don’t see the point in voicing, over and over, one’s viewpoint on smoking.

        In conclusion, damn what a gorgeous and fashionable girl in this picture.

    ENOUGH of the pics of smokers!!!! I am sick of the photos glamorizing smoking. I am boycotting your site from this point on.

    • Justin | The Sartorialist

      December 17, 2012 at 11:26 pm


      Smoking, like many other choices we face in our lifetime, is such a divisive subject at times. There are many ways this could go, and many things I would offer on the matter, but I would challenge you to explain a little further what about this picture is glamorizing smoking?

      As a photographer, you are often times an artist, reporter, communicator and many other people in one. Should Scott not record the images of those that have made an individual choice just because affinities are split on the topic?



  85. Jane with the noisy terrier

    December 17, 2012 at 10:04 pm

    When I was in Paris this summer, I was disheartened to see so many young people smoking (the over 30 set seems to have wised up.) Which makes me sad when I see an image on a blog (that is followed by so many young people) that evokes responses that glamourize smoking. My father died of lung cancer. I will never stop crusading against smoking.

    • Justin | The Sartorialist

      December 17, 2012 at 11:34 pm

      Hi Jane,

      It is true, there are tons of youth world wide that have picked up smoking. I have a disclaimer but I’ll save it until the end. But, when you look at an image of a smoker, you have to define your own experience. You and many other readers have defined it as something you don’t like to see because of your experience or overall inclination. Someone might view it neutrally, and another may think the image is glamorous and aspirational.

      My point is that, this is a beautiful girl smoking a cigarette. She exists. Scott photographed her. You get to interpret the picture. Scott decided the young lady was interesting, but you get to decide how it feels.

      I’m a former smoker, and it disappoints me that some people are weak enough to be influenced by photos of smokers. However, the choice to smoke is inevitably more than just an attempt at obtaining “cool points.”

    love the look!

    Can do without those anti smoking fanatics.
    In this politically correct world, is it okay to discriminate and be offensive to smokers??

    If you don’t smoke, good for you but let others do what they want in peace.
    What give you the right to judge other people?

    PS. I don’t smoke and never will but respect people who do! It’s none of my business either yours!

  94. Shella

    December 18, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    She looks great – but I also feel strongly that (for me) the look is totally spoilt by the smoking.

  95. Rebecca

    December 18, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    You have such a phenomenal eye for detail and bring your readers such realism.

    I love that her face is perfect. Her makeup, flawless. It looks as though she put effort into using eyebrow pencil, perfecting her lashes and dabbing her lips for the perfect stain.


    There is strands of hair and lint on her coat, her hair is disheveled and her blouse looks like it belongs to a pajama set.

    This is, to me, the epitome of the “I just had night of pure passion. I have only the clothes that I pick off the floor and the makeup in my purse. Time to take to the street for tantalizing fresh air, coffee and a cigarette” look. This is sex appeal.

    But the stray hairs are driving me nuts – I feel the need to offer her a lint brush…

    For some reason she reminds me of a character we’d see in the earlier seaons of Sex & the City. Maybe it’s the hair and bold lip paired with a cigarette.

    My sister and I looked like this in the 80s. (Well possibly not quite as beautiful). I was looking some old photos recently and noticed the lips and brows on display. Then I saw the girls in a Bryan Ferry video from the early 80s–”Don’t Stop the Dance.”

    That amazing mixture of cool but casual, that you think is unachievable unless you were born & raised in Paris. But then you notice that her shirt is actually from H&M, and that helps, just a little

    The descent of your royal blue, the descendants of your salmon blazer with sun yellow piping or the last cigarette, you used to state you were ending your affair with tobacco. The style is a performance, much as the dandy is the character in which employs such tools, to project the performance of the kindred spirit. The aesthete, the character of fabric industry, the mistress of carefulness, the lackadaisical whisper of the cigarette and the mindless awe of my lens onto you. Tranquillement en admirant la fille…Oui:
