    Isn’t that the girl from the Banana Republic ads? Jessica something or other? I would kill for her hair.

    I really love the combo of the white coat and leopard bag! I never would have thought to put these together. I have to wonder if the legs and toes aren’t a bit cold, though.

    Is that Jessica Joffe? She looks lovely, although her hair looks a little lighter than normal? It’s a gorgeous contrast to the white, though!

    You always find the best gingers. I officially want red hair. :)

    She got the proportion of skirt and coat just right, and the slingbacks give her so much leg. I love the splash of red in the toes and lips. I like the touch of animal print.

    THis picture is especially interesting as this girl illustrates how to use animal prints with discression, while the girl directly behind her is covered in it. (Though I do think I like her total outfit…)

    And you can’t beat the expression on her face. She exudes confidence.

    I personally like the gal behind her too (sans hippie pants) leopard skin and red go so well together…maybe next time with a skirt and heels?

    ow – i’m freezing just looking at her bare legs and feet!
    but this is the best picture of her that i’ve seen – which is saying a lot since she has worked as a model.
    the black sleeve is distracting me though – i’m sure the contrast is very nice when the coat is off, and keeps the shoes from being too spring, but i think i would have preferred the black to peek out at the hem, rather than the sleeve.

    I don’t like her shoes, but the rest is great. Minimalistic coat and a bit eccentric handbag are nice combination.

    She “owns” her beauty and clothes. I sympathize with the comment that the black sleeve is out of place, but I think the irregularity of it personalizes her look in a way that nothing else she is wearing does, and enhances her air of confidence.

    Ooooo I like it!
    My mother always said that any women with class does not wear animal print…however, a small accent to an outfit (such as the bag), looks rather exotic.
    Had I seen her on the street yesterday I would have been horrified by the bare legs though, and probably completely distracted from the loveliness of the ensemble, (It was snowing in the NYC off and on all day)..

    Odd that Jessica Joffe looks so stiff in the Banana ads, but much more beautiful in real life, as she frequently appears in the party pages. Maybe you should be shooting for BR, Sart! You’ve absolutely captured her. I love the color of her hair against the coat and combined with the animal print. Did she and Genevieve Jones (in the leopard coat?) coordinate? Anyway, It makes a nice composition!

    …It trips me out that people even think about the woman in the picture being cold. Who cares if she’s cold? She dressed herself! In fact, I think she looks HOT. Her shoes probably hurt her back and feet, and maybe her underwear’s riding up, and her bra’s digging into her side, etc…Who cares? Would we rather see her in some velour sweats and Ugg boots? Fashion hurts!

    here’s what Oscar had to say…”Good manners are not about dressing—a man can be dressed in the most unfortunate way and be a perfect gentleman—it’s just a shame that we’re losing a sense of decorum. People live life at such a quick pace now, but it really doesn’t take any extra time to do things in a proper way. Maybe it’s easier to put on sloppy pants and a sloppy shirt and a pair of shoes that haven’t been cleaned. It takes effort to have your pants pressed, your shirt neat, your shoes shined.”

    I find it amusing that commenters have focused so much on the impracticality of wearing bare legs in the winter rather than the impracticality of wearing a pale coat in the city. Obviously, any woman who wears a snow white coat in a dirty urban environment cares not for such prosaic matters.

    I’m more intrigued by the photo’s juxtaposition of the lady’s luminous cat-like stare and the ocelot print bag (it’s ocelot, not leopard; and btw, the young lady in the background is also not wearing leopard – that’s cheetah). It’s almost as if she carries the bag as a token of her true form, like Miss Kitka on Batman.

    One final observation brought on by the lady’s somewhat striking resemblance to Tilda Swinton, and meant to cast no aspersion on the lady’s character: If there were an episode of C.S. Lewis’ Narnia tales that took place in modern New York City, isn’t this what the White Witch would be wearing?

    She’s perfect, even if she does have a driver.

    That coat has wonderfully clean geometry and efficiency. There’s a “Snow Queen” vibe to her that is very appealing.

    The juxtaposition of her bag against the background faux fur is amusing–king of the jungle-ish.

    I think she looks really angry. If I passed her on the street and she looked at me like this, I might cower in fear.

    Clothes are great though. I would switch out the open toe shoes for some tall light-colored boots, but only to keep my legs warm.

    Just a fantastic coat. It’s tough to find a coat that’s so well cut. And she knows how to balance colors…. the light color in her bag is perfect with her hair… the dark color in the bag is perfect with the buttons on the coat. The whole thing is great.

    I support you, sart, in keeping all of the good comments. People don’t get to be jerks to strangers just because they are strangers. This blog is to inspire us and make us happy, not a place for us to knock of people who dress in a way we find unappealing.

    I go bare legged in the winter all the time and the truth is that it’s not as bad as people seem to think it is. If 30F winds are whipping at your calves, they’re gonna feel the same whether you have a thin layer of clothing over them or not. The most important thing is to keep the torso and the head warm.

    Sart, I love the fact that this woman looks as if she’s peering out at you from a planet entirely populated by fashionable, tall, women. The woman behind her (those jeans are beyond wonderful), the lady in the black (could be ‘meh’ but also could be perfect, she’s out of focus), and the woman in the short coat behind. It’s like she’s looking out from fashion planet saying, “I’m from here, where are you?”

    To anon 3:43 – perhaps you haven’t figured out the quirks of google, ’cause I’ve left plenty of non-positive comments that have been published. The only one that wasn’t had to do with a pair of pants that were unfortunately baggy right under the rear, and I used a rather impolite term to suggest what might be in there.

    To rebeccavelwhatever: Ocelot? Ocelot?!?! Please tell me you are kidding. and I thought I was a nit-picker.

    jessica m. I suppose you could call me a nitpicker. It’s an insult you could lob at anyone, really, anyone with a pronounced eye for detail.

    And I mean, really: ocelot is not that obscure of a pattern. And there is a definite difference between it and leopard. I know this, I’m almost positive Sart knows this, so I’m not going to feel bad about pointing it out, just because you happen not to.

    I had just finished shooting someone for my GQ page uptown and was walking back down Madison Ave and happened on the DG store opening
    I had my camera so of course I was going to take to photos but I think I have proven I don’t really care who the people are – I had no idea who this girl is and it doesn’t really matter to me.

    don’t forget that because I am an editor at GQ and i get invitations to these things all the time but I rarely go.

    This woman has received a lot of responses, and many of them are indicative of some sort of envy in those commenting.

    It is 100% undeniable that this woman is stunning. The last thing I thought of when seeing this photo was her bare legs. Her style is nice- classic with a twist, uptown mixed with downtown- but look at this woman. You can feel her presence through the photograph, she exudes sophistication, intellect, complexity, confidence. Maybe she is or isn’t these things, but she is absolutely captivating regardless.

    She is almost hypnotic.

    Meh….sure it’s a great look, just boring to me. White coat. Fab bag. Anyone can do that.

    I think the lady in the background deserves a solo picture instead. Great attitude to pull off an outfit like that.

    boring…style comes from one’s unique response to the constraints of your climate, city, your particular life — this girl has no such constraints. she can just take a car, buy/borrow another dress. true style is basically unattainable to rich fashion types because there’s no such thing as necessity in their lives.

    i always think it’s so funny when the comments here pertain to the weather conditions. “flip-flops in the snow? say it ain’t so!” that kind of thing.

    it never ceases to amaze me how concerned others are for the health and well-being of their fellow man or woman. well, either that, or for “the rules” — apparently when god (or your divine entity of choice) created the world it came with a set of guidelines as to what could be worn when and only in certain combinations.

    in either case, there’s an awful lot of tsk-tsking going on and i just have to laugh. i read them and i think diana vreeland must be rolling over in her grave.

    Ocelot and Cheetah.

    “Leopard this, leopard that!” Come on…if this is Fashion, then you need to know the basics at least, or call it “animal-print” and let it be…but this is an insult to the animal fur that’s lauded by fashion houses when 2/3 of the people worshiping it can’t tell the difference between each fur.

    Anyhow…her face does it. Cuts clean, makes a point, a really strong point. The red-blonde hair with the pale skin and the red lips and the green eyes…just makes the world go round.

    Oh my Sart, how did you get this composition? The handbag, the girl in the back with her animal print coat, the dark skin against the white skin making the white appear whiter like in those old paintings. You won the lottery on this one.

    this is absolutely stunning and very individual. she obviously has a very magnetic personality and a great deal of confidence and you can see that in the photo. the ONE thing i would have changed is the colour of the strap on her leopard bag. The light purple to me seems very disruptive, although it may have been better in real life. I think a black or dark purple chain would be better.

    another socialite. cringe. o:k so i admit it the girl is attractive. but she has the means to make the most of her looks. born into privlege. I hear she’s intelligent, but come on she went to boarding school and some elite college. every job she has had was given to her because of where she comes from. i hear she’s writing a book about an artist and deprivity. Yeah right if anyone knows anything about being deprived it is definately not her. boring—i cringe again.

    why do you put up so many reasons not to be inspired

    i had no idea who she was when i took the photo and if you just look at the image then WHO she is should make no difference

    this is why some people can never be happy – they put too many obstacles in front of themselves

    Funny that the outfit looks like it’s from Banana Republic. She did those ads, but you know she would never be caught dead wearing Banana Republic. I’ve seen her on the street a few times, and the only time I ever looked twice was because she was about 90 pounds, and 5 foot 10.

    Doesn’t show in the picture, but you have to trust me. Poor little rich girl.

    I do so love her hair and skin. Wouldn’t Waterhouse have delighted in her! I haven’t read down the comments to see other responses to this, but what fabulous timing in having the woman in the brilliant flares and animal print coat echo the bag. Or did you direct this one, Scott? It doesn’t appear so!
