It's good to see a belt on a coat that was not necessarily designed to be belted!
In the past few years (since Christophe Lemaire took over ?) Lacoste has systematically produced some of the greatest advertising campaigns on the market. The theme, the ideas, the light, the photography, the models, the styling: every thing has just been perfect. It has completely transformed the image of the brand. Has it been Ellen Von Unwerth all along?
I'm going to be a contrarian and say that I think it's a beautiful coat, but the belt just looks awkward to me. I think the coat's material is too thick to be belted. She's clearly slim-waisted but the bulky coat bunched up is just unflattering, makes her look heavier than she is.
thats virginia smith from american vogue, she's married to patrick robinson (GAP). i used to intern at vogue- her style is very michael kors, all-american and not very interesting, although i found her to be one of the most likable people in the office
