i remember seeing this post over at style.com – i rather preferred the 4th photo of the lady with that gorgeous grey coat (it is so incredibly covetable) for me this is just not at all appealing aesthetically. although i love textures and it looks like theres so much that would be lovely to feel and touch i doubt any woman would take too kindly to being petted by a complete stranger :-P
sartorially it’s just not a style i can appreciate
And yet I’m so much more interested in the woman behind…the rope-like scarf, the towering platforms, the 80′s bag. She’s got this whole Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego vibe that thrills me. Perfection.
um, can see why they are stylish,i mean, they are not wallflowers. but none of it works for me. i like big accessories, but the rope is silly to me. love the black shoes in back. hat and outfit too. the rope too big for me. lady in front, too much.
I love how some people wear animal skins–not, that is to say, fur, but the delicate pad of a shoeboot under those poufy trousers looks delectably feline. I think it’s easy to go your whole life finding the sleek feet of a cat who’s otherwise a fat, silky persian unquestionably graceful, and never translate that quality into human fashion. This brings an accessibility to nature.
I think this woman looks fabulous, and so does the lady behind here. Seeing the two of them together is what makes this photo awesome.
As a side note, I have to say that I’m not a fan of the disapproving comments which some people feel entitled to leave here. This isn’t a “Rate the Outfit” site, and posters who nitpick each outfit to death should realise they’re taking the wrong approach … these photos are about individual creativity, and celebrating the fact that all around the world there are people with the means to express themselves so vibrantly. We should all be empowered by that.
She reminds me of my mom in the 70s, except my mom would’ve had big, floaty Diana Ross hair. I like the bright clutch, nails and lips with the mellow colors of all else. If I were going to wear a harem jumpsuit and a fur, this is how I’d do it.
Look at the woman behind the fur lady. Those shoes! And that rope scarf. What is going on with her? I know it’s Paris, but where was this taken? Were you going in to a show? I would love it if that is just her attire for a regular day!
Incredible! A mature Gwen Stefani, perhaps? I’m seventeen, and am terrified of even attempting this new trend of hareem trousers, despite constant assurances that at my age I could pull off most things. Yet here she is, and instead of going for greys and blacks and the neutral palats and silhouettes which women over thirty are encouraged to embrace… and she looks better than I could ever dream of looking! I love the fur, and although I do wish it were faux… she seems like an all or nothing kind of woman, doesn’t she? I don’t think fakes would especially agree with her, and they would sort of ruin the lavish decadence going on here… And to cut myself off from an animal rights tangeant; love the cuffs, love the lip colour , love the bag on the girl behind her, and am intrigued by the rope/necklace worn by the irl behind her.
I thought “Russian”, too. But Cossack-run-amok with the tucked voluminous pants, boots, and gold braid on the belt. It looks peculiar, and it can’t be that damned cold. Too heavy and too drama queen for me.
This picture brings me mixed feelings. I love it and hate it at the same time because it is both wonedrful and overwhelming. Agree with the above commentor, this looks so Russian! Or is it already this cold in Paris?
What a look! Just to make such an effort (but yet look so amazingly casual) should be rewarded. She looks like an Icon… and the shades are really completing it all… must also say that the women behind looks very interesting!
If you had waited to take the photo 5 more seconds you could have captured the woman in the back whom everyone seems to agree, is the more fashionably daring of the two in the picture. They both have a rope theme going though… new-age bondage perhaps? Her orange money bag reminds me of a sack filled with gold. I like it!
This for me is the story of the off-kilter pair of pants (genie pants for the lady in front; and what look like deconstructed drop-crotch trousers for the lady in the back) and the rope detail (in the front lady’s belt and around the back-lady’s neck). Quite odd but cool.
Oh here we go, let’s wait for the “I hate fur” comments. I wish you wouldn’t post any fur pics just to avoid those comments, but I understand that you have to. I agree with other commentators, lady behind this furry person deserves her own pic. I have never seen a rope as pseudo-jewellery! Wow.
Now the look behind her? Is rope the new black? Asian designer(lest anyone think this is me being insensitive, designers instill a sense of the place they are from in the designs)? It’s got that feel about it. I love hats, very nice fedora.
people here said she looks russian… nooo way!!! Russians wear furs only when it’s freezing outside… when it’s -20′ C it is the best way to keep warm… i would say that it’s totally american style to wear fur when the weather is not so bad!
I love the look of the woman in the fur coat, and NO, she doesn’t look like Madonna. Just a beautiful blond woman.
All these comments like, “I hope she’s not wearing real fur” and “I hope it’s not fake fur” are boring and stupid, especially when they come from persons who eat meat and use leather. Let people have their choice and stay out of it. Just focus on the total look, and don’t impose your morality on the rest of the world, okay?
yes it looks interesting but i wouldn’t say it’s very pretty…. the pants are very mc hammerish, and i find the dead animal coat quite hideous. plus with the belt and the loud handbag… the whole thing looks too busy.
This is Miss Baba at her very usual best at the SS 09 Vuitton show,i have seen her a looot of times and if u guys think this look makes u comment , u should see her w her huge pink or yellow, very colourful anyway … fur, on a more than vintage bike , huge sunglasses bigger-than-life accessories, w everyone stopping in the street to watch..ahhahaha…. such a memorable image……even if u don’t notice her at first…. hard not to, lol…. , u hear speak from far far away and u know that that crazy mix of french and english ( i think she’s australian )can’t be anyone but her. really like this woman !!! individuals are hard to find and she surely is one !! can hardly wait to see what she’s pulling out next ! :)
That is the appropriate blog for anybody who desires to search out out about this topic. You notice so much its nearly hard to argue with you (not that I really would wantâ€¦HaHa). You undoubtedly put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just nice!
