Wow, so many comments and although people have approved of the shoes, no one is really thinking of their construction. I have always wondered why some women shoes are so expensive when they are just straps of leather. The construction of these is exquisite, comparable to those men’s shoes where the entire upper is one piece of leather! I know Louboutin (sp?) sometimes makes them; I would like to know whom the shoes are by. Jorge from W Palm BEach
Great pose. She looks effortlessly well-groomed – that’s so chic. The jacket is sharp but there’s something about the pants and shoes that bothers me. At first I thought i didn’t like the length of the pants but that’s not it, i think the shoes are too heavy, maybe some high heeled sandals with wide leather straps would work better?
wonderful trousers! great line, perfect shade of beige, tailored fit! the jacket, umh… a bit too much of shoulders pads (jajaja, I know they're back in fashion and everything, but…), they make the whole look a bit stiff…
and the shoes. ok, they look good on her. but she's tall & thin, with great legs. yet I cannot help thinking that a pair of classic decolletes would have been at least as cool.
I’m not sure if I’d ever wear those trousers, but it suits her great! And I think the jacket has a really nice cut, it’s nice to see the little stripe detail on the sleeve :) The necklaces are just amazing, I’d love to have some of those!
I’ve never ever liked cropped pants — I think only if you’re a thin 9 year old girl should you be allowed to wear cropped pants — they’re like UGG boots to me — a big Glamour Don’t — they never work and they make everyone look much shorter by cutting the line of one’s leg — and then there is the need for a very high heel just to make the legs look normal. She’s really an obviusly chic woman — but even in those high heels her legs still look rather stumpy to me. And I’m not sold on the shoes, perhaps another pair from her closet?
These trousers are nothing more than the dreaded capri pants, and in khaki, no less. They are just a tad sexier than mom jeans. Even though she’s probably quite tall, her calves are hacked in half by those damn clam-diggers. This outfit would not be out of place in a Macy’s mall in Secacus.
Dear Mr. Schuman, I can’t shake off the feeling that lots of people you photograph are in fashion industry. That’s all nice but it would be perhaps more interesting to see some people that actually make living doing something different and still manage to sustain interesting personal style. I don’t want to disregard your concept but it’s much easier to look fabulous for someone who just hang around clothes all day long. And then – it’s a bit like circle – fashion writers write about fashion people that talk about fashion writers. Yawn. Please keep it more real:)
I think she looks terrific, apart from the hair (hate that ubiquitous too-long, blonde-streaked fashion editor look). It surprises me that I love the pants, because I really don’t like cropped pants of any kind. I think that the shoes and the necklace balance each other beautifully, and her height and lean frame suit the suit. :)
I have to agree with the minority; this is not a good look. The pants are wrong, and the shirt is wrong (is that a mans tank top?). She is very beautiful but this look just does not come together. A dark chocolate blouse, long pants and a different shoe and it would be a knockout.
She looks amazing, but I think this outfit is a perfect illustration of the fact that in fashion, it often simply comes down (sadly) to THINNESS. I mean, try picturing this outfit on anyone with even a *molecule* of bust, hip or belly, and it would look like a completely lame suburban-mom outfit circa 1987. (It doesn’t hurt to have a $600 coif, either… (-; )
Contrary to the popular opinion here I don’t fancy those shoes that much. To underline the conflict between the tailored but informal look I think that some decent sandals might actualy make a pretty exciting composition here. I like the color comination a lot.The overall look is very subtle yet super elegant. Notice all the details: rolled sleeves, lift up lapels, asymetric jewelry. It all smells to me a tiny bit like Gianni Anelli’s touch
There is a 50% chance that this woman is a fashion editor because she just looks absolutely fabulous! Chic, modern, polished, everything about this look is fantastic. The length of the pants showcase those gorgeous shoes perfectly and the fun necklaces add life to the whole look. Perfection!
No; sorry, but in almost all professions where suits are obligatory, this wouldn’t fly. I can’t get that out of my head…when I buy a suit, its because I need a suit. I think most people are in the same position, so I don’t get too much of a kick out of uber trendy modifications that only work for people in fashion, in Paris, in art, etc.
Lets not forget that most people that wear suits are in conservative professions and love to take them off at the end of the day!
I’m all for playing with the traditional suit–but with limits. I could never, ever get away with these pants.
On the other hand if they were full length, I could for sure wear this outfit on a more casual day.
The necklace would have to go and the blouse would have to be dressier on a formal day, however.
Nice and sharp figure, I do not really love the pants length, eventhough it is in fashion these days it doesn’t look elegant. And the shoes are heavy for the look. I agree on the white high heels sandals ideas. Nice picture though.
