    Can’t see and anjoy the clothes for smelling the cigarette smore.

    Sorry Scott – that’s the truth – although I know you won’t like it.


    I feel the same about that the way you did about mentioning anyone’s weight.

    It’s a very cute outfit, but panty hose in the summer???

    I don’t see anything special about her outfit really. She is just a very, very beautiful woman, and it’s a fantastic photo to boot.

    I don’t only love her outfit but also the expression on her face, the color of her and the cigarette on her hand (not that I’m promoting smoking, it’s bad for your health)..

    I fail to see this one Sart. While others may praise this for chic simplicity, I see a bore coupled with a disagreeable metallic bracelet. If it wasn’t for the cigarette and that glare of shy annoyance I would wonder what made you stop.


    June 28, 2007 at 11:44 pm

    Why isn’t she holding her bag?

    Did you tell her to put it down, Sart?

    Yes, she has a cigarette. Yes, people smoke. Yes, it’s bad for the health. Yes, they know it. Yes, it’s their business. No, it’s not the photographer’s business. Get over it people! Stop shooting the messenger every time you see a cigarette (and you are most welcome to post on an anti-smoking blog.)
    And poster 9:07: it’s downright chilly in Paris right now….

    Jaaaysus, Americans, relax. Publishing a picture of a girl smoking isn’t PROMOTING smoking… You’re being over-sensitive now. Stop focusing on being so politically correct and just enjoy life like the Europeans!

    Ps. Love the glasses.

    I find it very annoying that lately commentors have been focusing more on habits such as eating or smoking than on the fashion itself. It’s very condescending.

    I absolutely love your work, Sartorialist.

    Oh la la! What an amazing looking girl. And this is a great photo too.

    But can we give it up with the “I hate the smoking” comments? If they didn’t smoke they’d all be inside then Sart wouldn’t get to take their picture. Since when was being all judgemental about someone else’s personal choice stylish anyhow????

    Fabulous look! The dress, the tights, the shoes and the glasses make her look so chic. Is it a cigarette? If so, it’s the only thing i didnt like it. Nevertheless, it’s a perfect look for the “summer” here in DK.

    Yeah, she’s smoking a cigarette. Get a life, people!

    It’s tough to balance out a bulle dress. The tights take the summery print to a more serious, arty place.

    Choice of shoes is key to this look. The seamless blend and rounded toe lengthen the leg to make for a slim look despite the volume in the dress.

    Am still on the hunt for the perfect round-toe, chunky heel black pump myself! (Need one I can walk in as well as look fab in).

    Have I mentioned lately that yours is the best fashion site on the whole WWW, Sarto? Well it is.

    She really only seems like a refined hipster. She is cute, but the cigarette? the tights? the nearly pretentious expression? Frankly, it doesn’t inspire me in the slightest.

    People. Shut up about the cigarette.
    Also. As we redheads are a rare breed, few understand a unique dilemma that all redheads face. Yes, our pale skin is so lovely and charming on our faces, our arms, our porcelain backs… but somehow, a pair of glowing white pins sticking out the bottom of even the most perfectly selected frock will ruin the whole look. Give her a break; stockings are our only option when we want to wear a dress!

    Very beautiful picture. And I love the cigarette, although I’m not a smoker. But it makes a hand look so sexy. Come on, we’re all aware it’s bad for health, but it IS sexy all the same.
