    She seems pretty, but pretty shy for a professional model.

    Love the material but does the cut of the coat leave something to be desired? Looks a little floppy to me or perhaps it’s just the way she is standing.

    Love her look, love the raybans, want those pants, but real fur is so tacky. It grosses me out just looking at this picture. (If its somehow fake fur, thumbs up, but it looks scarily real.)

    I looked at this and thought, Of course! Everyone needs a chinchilla sweater.

    Love the arch of the eyebrows above the Wayfarers; those plus the mouth give Ms. Stam a somewhat skeptical expression I find charming.

    There’s something touchingly vulnerable about this photo of one of the most beautiful models working today, caught when she knows she’s not looking her best. Without the hard armour of professional glamour, she does seem rather withdrawn. If there are two sorts of successful mannequins – flashy showboats who are always ‘on’, and quieter performers who ‘bring it out’ when the cameras roll – Jessica appears to be one of the latter.

    The broadtail jacket and uber-trendy bag are in fact the only clues that she’s not just an ordinary pretty girl, since we can’t see any of her statuesque figure. Ordinary pretty girls don’t have access to such pricey apparel, but they all have access to dark glasses, wooly tams and stretch pants.

    I think the nonchalance with which she wears the luxey swag makes a look, but the (vintage?) grey fur seems a bit too mature on such a young girl. I’d rather see something like a beat-up Lee Stormrider paired with that gazillion-dollar bag.

    Great pose, it has movement. Sart, was she walking when you took the picture or was she pretending to be walking?

    I love how the toughness of her black hat -which she wears in a very interesting way-, scarff and sunglasses contrasts with the innocence of her angel hair and rosy skin. Lovely!

    fabulous short coat, but i must say you are shooting an awful lot of models and celebrities on the street these days… how about some more normal stylish people sart? i find that anonymous people on the street are much more “fresh” and have an element of intrigue as opposed to these famous faces. otherwise the site is great :)

    That jacket is not very flattering to her incognito look, she looks like stuffed animal who survived a laundromat, be a little less evident. She is a cool model but obviously no taste… and by the way that balenciaga hand bag is so “pasado de moda”!

    to sart at 7:12–let me first define celebrity. celebrity the state of being well known. what celebrity’s on the front page you ask. jessica stam, jessica joffe. the majority of people as stated in their comments know who these people are. they are well known, therefor according to the correct definition of celebrity, this makes them celebrity’s. second let me state i am a little shocked you work in fashion and photography and did not know this was jessica stam. either thats pretty cool or are you for real. not sure what to say to that one. will just have to keep reading. till then don’t get so bent out of shape over peoples comments, freedom of speech is what makes this world and blogs for that matter so interesting.

    Maybe Ms. Joffe is a celebrity but I didn’t know who she was when I took the shot – that easy

    as for the models, I when I owned the showroom I helped cast shows for some of the designers and we were able to get a lot of big name girls (for free or trade of clothes) but I had to go through so much begging and dealing that I have become really burned out on the whole “star model” thing.

    I alternate between feeling bad for them and being annoyed by them so if I do end up shooting a model it is an honest opinion not just a grab at shooting a pretty girl.

    Oh please.

    I have read this blog for almost a year and a half and see a definite shift in your choices in subjects.

    It used to be more average person fashion snaps but now you feature editors and retailers that may not grace any tabloids but definitely are celebrities in the fashion world. Carine, Sarah Rutson, all the men’s wear guys.

    You have shot plenty of well known models as well. Agyness Dean, to name one.

    To say that you don’t know who they are and that they are just pretty girls doesn’t seem honest to me. The shot of Agyness from the shows appeared on other sites and I know that she is followed by a herd of of photogs at the shows. You may not have know who she was but you knew that she was famous enough to warrant lots of attention.

    Again I say, if you are given whatever free clothing and accessories you want, how much style is that really?

    More interesting “real” people and less “celebrities”.
    That should be a resolution. The name game is ridiculous.

    my god people, give the guy a break. whatever your assumptions are, you’ll never really know what’s what. whatever’s running through the sartorialist’s mind.

    and you speak as if he is in great debt of you and “must do” just to satisfy every opinion you people have in mind. after all, he is a person not a saint, even if “you say” that he is somewhat changing his perceptions, it will and forever remain his right. after all, he is not bound to have the same visions as he had before.

    oh and well, i think that stam is a worthy subject, i also think that it sucks that “famous” people are left out on these things, and are being judged. just cause it seems that they have the better hand at everything. but it definitely doesnt mean that they shouldnt earn recognitions for the simplest things.

    The fur is known as karakul. It is a stunning material…on the lamb’s body that it belonged on, not as a fashion item once the animal is butchered. I nearly succumbed to buying a karakul coat once, and after researching further, realized how sickeningly cruel the harvesting of this type of fur (any fur) is. We have too many options today to resort to doing this to hapless living beings for mere clothing.

What I love about this pic is that it took me awhile to realize who she was, and I like the fact that at first she looks like another pretty girl, but with style. It is also nice to see a model understated, it’s refreshing. As for the fur, I don’t wear fur, but this is a great pic, coat and all. Don’t change a thing Sart!

    Jessica Stam is definitely one of the best working models today. Totally recognizable and gorgeous even just walking down the street. A true beauty.

    Some one said earlier “no more famous people.” How about no more people who can walk into a store and say “I don’t care what the price is, just put me in some thing chic.” True style can’t be bought. Sart, I love your photos, and yes the rich look great, but honestly, so would I if I had the amount of money that they do. Plus it’s a little tiresome seeing the same Botoxed faces in leggings, high heels and carrying the IT bag.

    How about some more “real” people with real style. Like the man that you sat and had coffee with; that was a wonderful story and photo, and in all honesty, he had on some great clothes! Or the old woman with the coat that didn’t think she was beautiful. Or the two college students from sometime last year.

    Stam looks great, not because she’s famous or rich, but because she’s stylish. I have a hunch that she’d be wearing that exact same outfit on a college campus (maybe not fur or Fendi) just going to class.

    When I hit “comments” I was expecting to see a deluge of scoldings about the fur posting-but there were so few!

    Sart, I know you are not the fashion morality patrol, but PLEASE reconsider posting shots of people wearing fur. By now, we all know the sad story of what happens in the fur trade. To wear (or endorse) fur is declasse, not to mention an open admission that you support such a brutal industry.

    Fashion has evolved so much since the days when fur may have been a necessity; now there are so many fabulous alternatives to fur. I’m not saying you have to go organic, but why not take advantage of (and responsibility for) the tremendous influence you have now Sart: give the fur a rest!

    Seriously – some of the people on here are unbelievable!

    Most fashion models have amazing style, they need too – it’s all part of the job. Getting free things has nothing to do with it like someone mentioned – is Marc Jacobs in their bedroom in the morning styling them? NO! As for Agyness, it’s quite obvious she has a unique style & it’s generally not free stuff from the designers … They dress themselves, they have style … Whether stuff is free is irrelevant.

    As for Jess, she looks great .. she has a super nice personality & people need to lighten up – fashion is meant to be fun, it’s not meant to be serious.

    Also, as for Jess being a celeb? Well, perhaps to those who follow fashion but if you go to the depths of Texas or Louisiana etc.. would anyone recognise her name? Doubtful!

    Love the coat, and the 1950s-ness of the ensemble. She’s like a modern Monroe.

    I don’t have a problem with fur. I also wear leather shoes and eat meat … it’s all the same thing, really. People should leave Sart alone.

    well… she has this kind of “i dont really care what you think of my clothes” look, which make the entire outfit more applealing to us. its nothing about the clothes but something about stam’s attitude and demeanor… it just screams cool!!

    Not so much Monroe; more Grace Kelly, maybe, if you’re getting into that.

    Well I’m in London and would never in a million years have recognised this girl or her name. She looks cute. And she’s slouching.

    The best thing about dressing in the city is not having to try so hard every minute. What people call “effortless glamour” is both those things – less effort, but still choosing the right pieces to throw on. And trust me, it looks very different from your average person in the line at the supermarket in their nasty old sweats and some pastel top that makes them look like a cube. Obviously. Whoever complained earlier in the comments that she looks like any college freshman has, I think, missed the point completely! (And it doesn’t cost a lot of money, either, effortless glamour. Why does every look have to be “innovative,” as whoever said, taking this girl to task for wearing plain old Wayfarers and a beret? I’m living in berets this season. Sometimes style is precisely in something being a classic and the wearer feeling really good in it.)

    The black/silver thing here is beautiful and the fur catches so much light – great to photograph, whatever your ethical stance on fur.

    “Well I’m in London and would never in a million years have recognised this girl or her name”

    Being in London has nothing to do with it. Anyone who follows fashion would recognise her & most would be able to name her.

    Most fashion models do not have amazing style. They are taught that by the kind folks at their agencies. They are being crafted into a product that will sell. Try looking at them at the testing level.

    They may not have Marc Jacobs in their bedrooms styling them, although Agyness may have Gareth there, but they do have piles of free and fantastic clothing. You can hardly miss.

    Models are used because they are good clothes hangers that show off the garments to their best. You can put a paper sack on them and want to buy that sack. Real people have to work harder.

    People that have style, real style, have it at any price level and at any stage in their personal development.

    Love the whole look! I want her bag, her hat and also the scarf! But I don’t like the coat. It seems too tacky to me.

    I like your site but many of the comments are made by apparently shallow, callow youth whose only culture consists of the brand. And they are so puritanical: anti-smoking, and anti-fur (in lieu of a real moral life). They are always patronizing when you show an older woman (that “certain age” tag) which just reveals conceit about their youth. I laugh to myself when I think of them turning fifty–and that will happen sooner than they think.
    It must drive you mad, all that pointless “where can I get that bag?”
    It’s enough to make me want to take up smoking.

    Who is Jessica Stem???? I honesty don’t care about her, but I do care about clothes. Isn’t the point of this blog about celebrating fashion in all its forms regardless of the wearer? (plus have you ever considered the fact that Sart might be deliberate in his choices – it is always better to err on the side on the conroversial than be bland!)

    My first instinct was to like this outfit – she looks very striking, and I always love grey. So what if she’s a model?! Does that mean she’s not human? Can’t have personal style?

    As for the fur debate, I agree that killing endangered animals for vanity is cruel, but what about vintage fur? Vintage anything is good for the planet. …And what about animals which are considered vermin, such as rabbits in Australia (overruning the native animals), and ditto for Australian possums in NZ: they are also considered vermin.

    And as for style: YES YOU CAN HAVE IT ON A BUDGET!!! I manage to buy designer on sale or in charity/thrift shops or vintage boutiques where I do a lot of shopping. It’s all about being creative and imaginative so that I can afford to have the occasional splurge on a fabulous, and yes, expensive item.

    So whoever whined, “I’d be stylish too if I had pots of money” I say, cease with the sour grapes and consider other options (ie, as above).

    I’ll get off my soapbox now.

    Stam is one of the people who puts my country on the style map! The wintery outfit is striking, but I’m most drawn to her face in this shot. Lovely.

    There seem to be a rather serious debate on wether or not Sart. should be posting pictures of celebrities. The whole idea of TheSartorialist is afterall, to spark inspiration and document stylishly dressed individuals, regardless of how well known they are or who they’re wearing. I know some people who, despite wearing designer clothing and toting the ‘It’ bag, just comes off tacky and NOT chic/stylish. Jessica Stam may be a well recognized face,but her casual easy-going chic-ness is so well captured in this shot that I think if it was some other face under those dark sunnies, Sart would still have photographed her.

    It’s funny that even with those sunglasses on, Stam’s lips and eyebrows are so her that it would be hard to think she was just another girl walking down the street.

    she has the most amazing face, her arched eyebrows and big feline eyes :)
    i love the raybans and the hat.. very warm and simple, but quite elegant.

    from the neck up, she looks fantastic. the fur coat spoils the look, especially since it has to be real.

    i definitely agree with anonymous@3:58PM, whoever is seen in theSartorialist, irregardless of whether famous or not, gotten any help from stylists/designers or not, the utmost point is if he/she “sparks any kind of inspiration” for that specific point in time.

    How do you do for shoot models ? In the street, just meet them or with a rendez-vous ? Because you shooted a lot I think. I've seen in your book – I don't know how many you've got, I didn't know you before I've just to have this one for my birthday ! – Milla Jovovich, Jessica Stam, Ai Tominaga and Coco Rocha ! If I could meet a lot in the street..
