That Coat- Looks 1 & 2





Trying to look great for a week of shows is more than a little daunting on a limited budget, especially for a young fashion editor.

I think this young lady did a great job of putting together two very different looks.

It was cold all week, so it was smart to work her looks around her coat since it was the item most people would see anyway.

I also like how both versions accentuated her long legs, but again, in very different ways.

    Here is me gushing about another coat. I do love them, and this one is wonderful. I like the nice a-line. I also really like the long gloves and the bag.

    Awesome. Her legs are the first thing I noticed.

    (Is the person behind her – second photo – waving at you?)

    She looks fantastic. I much prefer looks that do not take layering to the extreme. Clean and simple is so much more striking IMHO.

    She is gorgeous, and her legs are miles long… personally, she does look everyday chic, and I would admire her outfit if she walked by me on the street, but to attend fashion shows, she looks a bit underdressed. However, I reserve judgement since I haven’t seen what she was wearing underneath her coat.

    I have this coat! It’s from Victoria’s Secret. They also have it in red.

    you know i saw a coat just like hers, and i debated getting it.

    she looks beautiful both ways. lovely hair & smile.

    i like how she layers tights & socks in the 1st shot and how she holds her gloves in both shots.

    I am almost positive that it’s Susan Cernak from Elle magazine. I could be wrong. Sart?

    i love the simple elegance of the first look. especially with those kicky forest shoes! i also have bag envy.

    Her look is about proportion. I love the weight and balance that is going on here, in addition to texture. (And how smart to get another shot of BC in the background of the second pic.) :)

    hannah, are you sure it’s from VS? it’s a fairly popular style; i have a very similar one by Guess.

    Lovely coat, and it’s amazing how she kept the layering subtle. Wearing knee socks without looking twee is tough, but she found th perfect way to pull it off.

    Wait a minute; isn’t that Bill Cunningham in the background? Is he waving at you Sart? What’s with you two?

    And, more to the point, I am really enjoying your commentary lately. I know it is a hectic time and I appreciate your using this breather to explain what caught your eye and why you think an outfit works. It is also wonderful that you are pointing out that it isn’t just $$ that makes good style possible.

    I do believe the photographer waving in the background was the gentlemen on the steps of the tents you posted a picture from last week. He was behind a beautiful girl and your first thought was “Funny Face”

    4 Stars for that look and for you Sart to show it to us..man these Fashion Editors get prettier every day…hope that’s not a pre-requisite to getting that post nowadays..

    I also have to say because the buttons start so high up and stop abruptly give the illusion of it being much longer.

    She’s hot!!

    Okay, and I get a kick out of Waving Charlie in the ‘pants’ photo background …”hey Sart, are you shooting me or the ’10′ in the great coat?”

    This shows how you don’t need a million pieces of clothing to look good … a few simple, elegant quality pieces can go a long, long way (as long as those legs? Maybe not!!)

    Has anyone been able to track down who makes the bag?

    Wonderful coat. If a coat could make my legs look that good, I’d wear it all the time too.
