    Such long legs!!

    Proportions: her legs are elongated to the max by wearing the leggings with the top as short as it can decently be. The booties and heels further accentuate the effect. Did she cast her coat aside for the photograph? Everyone in the background appears to be wearing jackets! Jorge from WPB

    I’m not sure why but I really don’t care for this. It’s a very nice silhouette – I’m just not a big fan of the slashes.

    Oh this is absolutely magnificent! She looks dark, hard ans yet so fresh! The dress, the shoes and the hair reminds me of Swedish singer Robyn. And just look at her clutch, her nail polish and the ring on her finger. If I ever doubted that less is more, I’ll just look at this lovely pic and it’ll convince me that less is indeed more!

    I don’t like when the top is so short that it gives a “I forgot my pants” look.

    So I don’t know if she cut this herself but if she did KUDOS! I have not seen anyone cut and slash thier clothing and pull it off with such class! Love it!

    i love the striped top peaking through the slits in her sweater. i also think the length is just perfect enough to work with the tights..of course, great legs don’t hurt!

    Nice, but only if you’re a size 0. Add hips and a butt into the mix and this would make the “How not to dress” list. I love the slashing though. May have to do that on one of my shirts.

    i like her sassy way of styling a sweatshirt/leggings silhouette. she kicks it up to the next level with her ysl platform booties and i love the little splash of color in her manicure!

  22. Jack Daniel

    March 10, 2009 at 10:30 am

    Is she also wearing those YSL Tribute Platforms?

    I like her outfit. But again, you can’t go wrong when wearing all black. It’s too easy to wear all black because you’ll always look good.

    Now can I get out my beadazzler and scissors? I know, the beadazzler is the one extra thing that no one over the age of ten really needs, but things seem to be going over the top in that way that only a bad economy can send them. I love it when people realize there really isn’t anything to lose. She looks fantastic!

    I love the slashing. It reminds me of 17thC doublets. And what a lovely young woman.

    The sweater seems to be pulled down here, but I wonder if it stays down as she moves about. For some reason, it bothers me when someone wears leggings, and the top doesn’t cover the derriere (even if the person has a lovely one).

    I like the all-black, the knit slashed-top and the boots. But as some have mentioned, I would have preferred the top to be longer. And Jorge is right… where is her coat? Because I’m in Paris as well and can attest it’s not that warm!

    Not everyone looks good in all black. I look terrible when I’m not wearing colours- it’s because of my skin tone. She looks awesome, though cold.

    She looks fresh. Maybe a bit cold. Little makeup, nice simple and lean look. Lovely YSLs. Much better than that Balmain jacket. Still can’t get over it (shudder).

    I kind of like the slashed sweater with the stripes underneath. I think it would also look good like a vest – that is, a long, sleeved, striped T shirt underneath.

    I also like the fact she is not wearing jewelry around the face – though I can’t say the same for the fact that she in not wearing a bottom…….

    For the love of god. Leggings aren’t pants. Completely ridiculous. The sweater is lovely, but I’d be much less distracted if she were wearing slim black denim pants or something.

    The woman is naturally beautiful but appears to be without make-up as well as without much fashion guidance. The outfit is too plain. If it were not for the stretch pants/tights one would think she’s attending a funeral.

    Everything she’s wearing is perfect.

    Le seulement problem est c’est tres froid au Paris….et je pense que si j’ai le meme ensemble, je mouriai de froid!

    Seriously, add or subtract three inches to the sweater and i think it would look perfect. At that length it just looks like she forgot the bottom half.

    all the black on black is very chic, especially the shoes, and then the crew neck top with the slashes gives it an edgy, grungy feel that i like. i also like her bright red nail polish and simple band on her finger. leggings as pants are great, as long as you have lean legs and the material is resonably thick.

    love this outfit.

    Add mine to the voices calling for pants on this lass! Black tights do not give one license to go out with one’s bottom literally hanging out. It’s just poor taste.

    Anyway, the slashes resonate with me; I did this myself to an old shirt this weekend. Slashing brings visual interest to an otherwise plain garment.

    Great legs! And I love how she looks plain, yet not plain and how the red nail polish stands out against so much black. She reminds me of Gwyneth Paltrow. Oh if I could pull this off! I like the hair, too.

    She could add a very short and sleek skirt to the outfit and it would look more tasteful. It would look less like she’d forgotten to put on a skirt or pants.

    without a doubt, this girl has AMAZING legs (how are all these woman not models with such incredible figures?!). but i have to join the “tights are not pants” bandwagon.

    perhaps if the jumper/pullover was a little longer, it would be ok. but it is daringly short to wear with just tights! surely black skinny jeans would have sufficed?

    beautiful face though, love the minimal makeup, shoes are killer, but the poor dear looks a little cold!
