    Paris wins.
    She is more daring than her Milanese counterpart, but the Milano style is a safe play.

    She looks charming. A great expression and a lovely captured moment. The coat is arresting too, and while the sneakers could easily look eccentric they look just fine here.

    i usually think of Parisian style as more predictable and Milanese more daring…the chucks are admittedly overdone but that day-glo orange coat is electric!

    Fabulous coat…I love the orange for dressing and she looks marvelous with the hair style and the coat…I would change her shoes however…

    I was going to suggest you add a picture to this series representing some sort of typical NAmerican student apparel.

    But then I realized that said picture would probably look fucking haggard.

    Nice shots.

    This is the perfect illustration for wear ONE item that pops, and make everything else be the mat and the frame. The trench is something that dominates the outfit, yet it does not dominate her as she has a v strong look, starting with the hair and the lack of makeup, she exudes confidence. I am a bit split on the white sneakers, but I guess they work if you are a student and are walking those Paris streets all day. Quite frankly, other than heels, I dont know what else she might wear for her lifestyle if she is, indeed, a student. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    i’ve been wearing my chucks for years. don’t love them with tights. just don’t. but the orange coat is fantastic. love the grey tights with it as well.

    Love her hair! really suits her beautiful face. I wish more people with long hair would style it into up-dos; i know it’s a lot of effort but it looks so great – it makes your hair into unique face framing accessory. Think of Audrey Hepburn as Holly Golightly – would she been so charmingly seductive with her hair loose down her back?

    I think the shoes make the outfit. They are appropriate for what she is (a student) and, along with her hair and expression, give her a very definite visual/cultural reference (Amelie). Heels or boots would be pretentious and impractical.

    The orange is great, and I’m really intrigued by the hair. I wish I could see the back.

    Maybe the colors don’t look like they did in person, but I think the coat is too darned bright. If it were just a little less neon it would compliment her rather than overpower. Parisians usually choose good colors for themselves and this is close but for me a miss. Also, white shoes of any kind with dark tights/hose make me shudder. She’s still awfully cute.

    At first I thought “ugh, I can’t believe it – white sneakers, in Paris?”. Then I noticed they were Converse AllStar, so all is well (and sylish)! She is quite adorable, and I love her hair! The orange coat is fabulous!

    Her hair shows off her cute expression; looks like a great style for those of us who cannot french braid!!!

    So, what do you think she is looking at? It’s like she’s waiting for a building to fall on her.

    The coat and the hair couldn’t be any more perfect together.

    Love it! I found this beautiful pumpkin-colored cashmere walking coat in a vintage shop years back. Had the lining re-sewn and buttons reattached several times, then my dog chewed the collar (RIP). While no replacement can match it, a similarly colored orange coat helps make Midwestern winters more bearable. I almost look forward to them, actually!
