Remember the old days when catalogues like Talbot's featured drawings instead of photos? They always had this certain pose, elegantly long limbs, graceful necks. She reminds me of one of those fashion drawings. The proportions here are just perfect. I'm particularly smitten with the 3/4 sleeve and her long black gloves. And her short hair. And…the whole thing.
It's interesting how sometimes women can get away with showing a hint of leg between a tall leather boot and a coat, whereas, other times, they're labeled a "dominatrix"–take Condoleeza Rice, for example. I think this woman pulls it off by balancing the sexy elements of her outfit with very lady-like ones. She displays both confidence and elegance. Bravo!
Compare to Kate Middletons outfit yesterday….same page, different countries. interesting. Though i must say this woman, who look to be older than Kate, managed a much fresher and more stylish look, while still retaining than proper and polished look.
