    Too much going on from a sartorial perspective, but the typical Parisian café furniture makes this pic a French classic. The modern Robert Doisneau?

    I love this! Whenever I go to Paris I always try to dress like Oscar Wilde. I mean, you're in Paris, right? And the mismatched socks are a great accent.

    How can this colour-blind mix of colors & the ethnic element (the scarf) & the feet with independent thought and taste not result naif? She get it. She's valiant.

    Such a richly personal look, especially the worn, weathered leather shoes and messenger bag; she's clearly been loving them a while and they've got patina. The navy fedora is a unique topper, and that scarf! Also dig the mismatched-color but coordinating-patterned argyle socks.

    It's like she took the classics and tilted them sideways. Neat.

    I also think she's trying too hard.
    I like the top part of the outfit and the bottom part of the outfit on their own, but together it's too much. And I don't like her scarf. It's too bulky.

    March 11, 2010 at 4:16 pm

    I love the colors, the patterns, the hat, the shoes, the socks, the scarf….
    Also some observations, as an American living in France:
    She is sitting outside, when it is devilishly cold in Paris, the only reason to do so being that one is an inveterate smoker who cannot finish a salad without a cigarette.
    She has a coffee at the same time as her salad, which means she is not French (one does not drink coffee with food, but after).
    If she is indeed the artist Tracy Emin, then she looks incredibly good for her age. Kudos for that.

  101. Atuana

    March 11, 2010 at 4:20 pm

    Now here's a girl who enjoys getting dressed in the morning. And it's so appropriate that she's about to eat a yummy-looking salad–because she obviously relishes life. Love her Julia Roberts hair!
    My one concern: that scarf is so beautiful, and I'm afraid she's going to splash dressing on to it…

    She should be proud of such an individual style, the restaurant should be proud of such a beautiful collection of items on the table, and you, Scott, should pat yourself on the back for this wonderful caricature of France – note the wine and perrier bottles in the back!

    Sart, I have to say this is a fantastic shot. I don't frequent your blog to see technical photography. Instead, I view to see creative people pushing boundaries without looking foolish. This woman's style stands out and is definitely avant-fashion to me. The socks don't match, the shoes are missing laces. It's all over the place, yet it works. That is, the outfit is something being worn by a regular person on street that gives one insight about the person's personality – not some fashion insider wearing something outrageous.

    Bellisimo el sobrero, la cita que lo rodea (de un color levemente más claro) le da una elegancia especial. Me gusta mucho el detalle del saco acorde con las pintas rojas de las medias. Los zapatos, simple y sensillamente, perfectos!

    this style is much more London than Paris; I wouldn't be surprised if this character is English.

    I love this photo, but it makes me want a salad avec un petit baguette so badly that I've been depressed all day. Mainly because I am not in Paris or Parma…

    Sweet and exuberant. But the hat does not fit; it's too small for her, and thus makes her look like she does not really know hats but figures a hat equals fashion so, OK, she'll wear a hat. Maybe this means she "tries too hard," but I applaud the risk of trying too hard, which is more honest than pretending you haven't tried at all.

    The shoes of the girl are the protagonists, i believe. It's a beautiful shot and image, as it shouts parisian enough.. I like the androgynous socks and old-looking shoes, which are weirdly matched with the girly (unnecessary for some people) tights. I also like the playful mood of the little dress underneath, the red jacket and the geometric-printed scarf. The only thing i don't like is the bag on the floor, which actually betrays the not-real-moment, but the i-have-well-prepared-it one.. (and what kind of woman – even an artist one) would have left her bag unattended on the floor???!!!!
    Sorry for long comment, it's just that it really triggered (positively of course) my view!

    This outfit excites me as does the whole photo. Her beautiful face adds that element of clean structure.

    I want that bag and those shoes though!

    Lets put "some" colours together…not enough. I would call her "little bit confused".

    What a beautiful woman. I love her unabashed use of color. Her Fedora is her crowing glory. Her very worn shoes are some how regal, she can pull anything off!
    And look at her messenger bag lying there in the background, fantastic!

    Ugh, it's far too random and hipster looking. It looks like she threw on random clashing garments.

    Wow, this is amazing. The way she turns her feet, her face in concentration, everything about her screams art. Amazing photograph, makes you want to pull out your mismatched socks and fedora and go for it.
