The Interview Suit, New York

She asked if I could take the picture quickly because she was going to a big interview with LVMH.
I’m sure all of us here at The Sartorialist wish you good luck!

    Cute interview outfit. Somehow all the elements of this outfit would normally have the potential to look matronly, but she made it work in a young way.

    I think just then slim fit of everything keeps it looking professional but not matronly. I really love that jacket! and I hope that getting approached by the sartorialist gave her an extra boost of confidence before her big interview.

    Nice outfit. Nothing matronly about it IMHO. Do you think the LVMH interviewer will mind the Hermes (or hermes-ish) bag?

    The bag is defenitly a dream of mine! I feel for her, looks so nice!

    She looks so good! The collar on her shirt is so nice.
    What is LVMH short for? Louis Vuitton, but hat is MH then?
    Hope she got the job. She has a very good karisma throug the lens.

    How can someone who needs a job afford a Hermes bag?

    Wish you would have got a full view, I wanted to see her shoes…Ahhh I remember going to LVMH interviews and trying to get the outfit right, it may be sad but what you wear is soooo important. I think she looks great, very LVMH-ish. And good point, I would not have worn Hermes to LVMH but as long as it is real, then I guess it is OK.

    LVMH will be lucky to have her…that is one chic young professional.

    The interviewer will also notice her Damier portfolio. She’ll strike just the right note, IMO.

    She looks very nice and professional. A white blouse is always good. A classic and in her case it is beautifully matched with the jacket and all.
    Good luck!

    Being snapped by The Sartorialist? It must’ve been her lucky day – of course she got it! (I hope…)

    Now that’s a french collar right there. Nicely put together. Androgenous? I would have loved to see her shoes and the whole ensemble. Could be hermes-esque, or the real deal. It sure is the POP here. But is that an LV folder? Loving the totality of this one. And the smile, cant beat that! Hope she bagged the position!

    I would have advised NOT carrying the Hermes Kelly…though, I guess the Damier portfolio, may balance things out. Allegiance is key, but, then again Delphine Arnaut has been seen many a time carrying Hermes. Either way, I hope she got the position.

    I love the shirt. I have to buy a white shirt. Where can I get one of those?

    Perfect 10!! I love the high collar Victorian blouse and little black jacket on top.

    LVMH = Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy.

    It’s the parent company of LV. It also owns (part of) Marc and Marc Jacobs, Moet Hennessy, and a host of other luxury goods.

    I think it was smart for her to wear another super-classic brand to an interview with LVMH. Wearing, say, a speedy, or something similar would have made her not that original, not that brave and kind of a sycophant. Her kelly is way mellow too, because it’s a souple. Love this. I hope she got the job. Certainly augers well that you got her on the way, Scott.

    There is always talk about the proper sleeve length for men, is the same true for women? If so how does the interviewees length rank? Did she get it right?

    I like the pearl esque buttons of her shirt, and especially love the stand up collar (is that what it’s called?) Like the ruffles on the cardigan too. And very smart girl to bring her LV portfolio with her!

    Buckle your bag, woman! You want your potential employer to think you’re someone who dots her i’s and crosses her t’s! (But I hope she got the job.)

    I thnk this is the only occasion where wearing a Hermes Kelly could be construed as being subversive!

    I hope she got the job! I love the high collared white shirt, slim fit of her jacket and pants, her Kelly bag and Damier portfolio. What kind of shoes was she wearing?

    That shirt is divine – love the buttoned-up look. She looks extremely stylish.

    I keep checking back to see if maybe she posted to let us know she got the job. Sart, if you find out, would you please let us know? I really hope she got it…

    Her outfit screams CHIC…and the Kelly bag is a great way for her to avoid the temptation of wearing ONLY Louis Vuitton to an interview AT Louis Vuitton!!! (In other words, avoiding the cliché).
    Good job!!!
    I would hire her in a second. (and I am sure the bag is real)

    definitely. walking in with anything LV monogram print would be a shot in the foot as far as i’m concerned.

    oh wow, that blouse!! I am becoming obsessed with high collars for women right now and this is just perfect….

    I agree — if she went to the interview in head to toe Louis Vuitton it would definitely look more like an attempt to suck up than anything else. So I fully support carrying the Kelly! It’s beautiful anyway!

    Of course, with a Kelly bag, you can do no wrong. But I like the outfit. I’m of the old school, however, and still would wear a skirt suit to interviews.

    I love the masculine, stiff, buttoned-all-the-way plain white shirt with the tailored, ruffly, belted feminine jacket. I hope she finds this and posts about how the interview went!

    Hermes wouldn’t have been my bag of choice (esp. when applying for a job at LVMH) but as some one on here said, that damier portfolio did balance things out.

    You can tell she tried so hard…especially with the H bag and damier port.

    It is a perfect suit for her, especially the white blouse reflects her personality well. When you have acquired new skills, it is important to know where to find job openings to put them to work, and i hope she will finds her position in that company

    Aw, this was a very nice post. In idea I want to put in writing like this additionally – taking time and precise effort to make an excellent article… however what can I say… I procrastinate alot and by no means seem to get something done.

    I have no doubt that she’s got the job, she’s so well dressed , and with a very expensive bag
    I wonder what place in LV she was planning to get …
