Creo que esta seÃ±ora es espaÃ±ola, y tiene la gran suerte de poder comprar todo aquello que quiera en cuanto a marcas de vestir. Aunque la imagen no refleje todo lo que ha sido, sabe muy bien como hacer uso del concepto “una mujer bien vestida”.
Oh my god! She is totally spectacular! I adore the coat (looks like Lilith)and the harmony of her scarf and her hair is stunning.The fact that she is of a “certain age” makes her all the more appealing. She rocks! And she looks so at home and good in her skin. Very European. One of my all-time favorites. Magnificent………
The incomparable beauty of egocentric aging… I’ve no idea who this woman might be, but she’s an outstanding example of someone supremely confident of who she is, the impression she means to leave in her wake. I’m certain that her presence commands attention wherever she goes. I hope that when you publish your book, it contains a good representation of such people–men and women whose faces, carriage and personal style map their lives.
love her look. the coat left open to show the scarf fringe. love the scarf not bundled around her neck. keeps her warm without bulking up the narrow coat. colors incredible with her hair. like the brown w/ the grey. love the short pant and heavy boot (probably for comfort and warmth) but adds style and heft to the bottom half. she looks like a natural at making her cool weather clothes attractive.
Everything about this image is so powerful…the gigantic crinkled coat, the oversized scarf and those shoes that seem out of character but somehow they work..her rigorous hairdo, the dark lipstick and the amazing strength you can see in her eyes…this image is truly hypnotic.
Im 95% sure that this lady is Eloisa Bercero, a Spanish lady basically known for her love to fashion, the huge amounts of money she spends on it and for being one of the very lucky and few regular customers of the haute couture ateliers. the Spanish newspaper âEl Mundoâ did a great interview with her some years ago where she showed part of her incredible collection of vintage and current haute couture clothes.
This shot is A-MAZING! Speaking from my completely clueless American image of Italian women–this is what I envision. There is something so incredibly bohemian chic, in an unstudied way. Did she give a lot of thought to this when she got dressed that day or is this is just how she dresses without giving it much thought? What a a great shot and a beautiful woman.
How wonderful to discover the existence of Eloisa Bercero, whether or not this is the lady herself pictured. I googled her and was just charmed. Such a lovely discovery. If this woman isn’t Ms. Bercero, then she is lucky to be mistaken for her!
Actually her name is Ana and she own a boutique in Paris. She is very sweet and one of the most vibrant people I know! I can’t believe Scott got her to stand still for long enough to take this picture! :)
This is the most beautiful photo I’ve ever seen on this great site. I’m actually holding back tears looking at it here at work. I agree with the other person who said it is rude to call her granny though. Woman of a certain age is a much better descriptor. She doesn’t look any older than a lot of the men that are featured regularly on this site anyway. But her ageless style, her confidence, is awe inspiring. Sartorialist, more women of a certain age, please!
This image of ageless chic inspires my first comment to your site. I hope you will continue to include images older women who do not bow to style but use it as a language to express themselves. It’s so tiresome to always be inundated with the beauty of youth when that is only one aspect of style. This woman speaks to me. Thank you!
I love the picture: the way she dresses and the whole entourage is what make this image so powerful. very nice shot! I like the look, but I will try to imagine that those boots work with the whole style… at the moment I can imagine plent of better boots.. by the way, she’s amazing!
This is pear-shaped if I’ve ever seen it. The only thing is, I think she probably has quite thin hips. There’s just too much bulk! If the scarf or jacket (not both) cut-off at the waist this would be a winner.
This is completely breathtaking. It’s almost Dickensian, but at the same time speaks of Miuccia, Limi Feu, everything modern. I don’t have the words to properly describe it, but it must be said that the look on her face is the most amazing thing of all. Bravo.
Finally, a charming, chic women with lots of style and … silver hair… fabulous… as I am also in the same age bracket I suspect this wonderful woman occupies, I appreciate seeing what can be done when stilettos and leggings are not really a good choice.. keep more of these divine, creative women in the “list”. I love your work and gain courage with each months displays..
The Silver Fox Lady II. I thougt the beauty of the old photo, (by the way, Would you put the two of them side by side?) was the look in her eyes, and the arch framing he figure, but there is no arch here, just her, and this photo is as stunning as the old one.
I would love to meet her in person. She must be something
Thank you for posting this! I, too, have refused to color or cut my hair and wear it, gloriously grey, in this same style! Ditto for the red lipstick! You photo of this lovely lady strengthens my reserve to ignore those who advise me to “update” my look. I say this is a classic!
This could be my favorite of yours. It is truly inspiring to see a woman of her age being more stylin' than most teenagers I know. The detail, both effortless and not, is stunning.. her pants for instance, and that gorgeous oversized scarf. Truly wonderful.
Sometimes Italians take the style purity thing too far and it becomes austere and unbecoming. She looks a little too much like a WWII refugee. The outfit is cool but I would advise softening the hair (a few tendrils) and trading out the drab scarf for something with some color (geranium pink, or perhaps coral). Now that I’m over 50 I find that color near the face really perks things up.
