    i understand that’s how we ladies are supposed to be doing our hair this spring. i don’t think my hair can actually do that.

    but i reaaly do need to own that coat.

    Wow –I love it all!
    She demonstrates how one can wear a coat with volume over wider-legged pants. And Kudos for her for forgoing the Gumby legs –that is, the pants are not overly long.

    This is every straight-haired girl’s dream. Or it’s mine anyway, except maybe it’d be red.

    I agree she looks 20 years older in the profile shot, but straight on she looks like her age, which I imagine is relatively young.

    Same beautiful gal as in your January 22 post. I love her smile, not to mention her almost inimitable style! I could never pull off that hair! :)

    thin grey stockings contrasting with gorgeous ysl sandals aren’t really in the same league as the german-tourist-in-greece look, are they though?

    you know last time you shot her i wasn’t too sure about the hair .. but i think i like it.
    she looks stunning, feminine and confident.

    i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again ..

    This woman could be the poster child for the anti-hair-straigtening-irons campaign that should be launched. She looks delicious!

    Very daring, but she pulls it off. I love what she has done with her hair.

    love that her pants are actually hemmed. it seems strange to me that lots of gals are risking ruining expensive fabric dragging it on the ground. Seems so decadent…not getting it. but she seems cool and crazy sane.

    the hair is fine – sure, go for it but why the hair salon “jaws of life” clip?? those things are the white girl equivalent of pink foam rollers out in the supermarket. bad bad bad way to keep the hair in place.

    use pins. use plastic forks even but please, lay off the jaw clamps!

    I was going to say silly hair but the front view shows very, very pretty tendrils at the side. It’s just too high. Horrible shoe arrangement. Wonderful coat.

    the outfit is cool, yes, but the hair is what totally gets me. i love women that go crazy with their hair. tight, neatly combed coiffs can be so boring. go teased, go bedhead, go nuts. that’s hot! something about the less you appear to care the better :)

    Seriously cool because she’s not overdone. She comes across as someone with both brains and kindness.

    Love the coat, the shoes, the pattern/texture of the pants.

    One can only speculate about the outfit under the coat, but her hair especially reminds me of a retro theme in British fashion of late-60s-early ’70s, i.e. in films like “Mary Poppins” and “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang”; and in “The Prisoner”; or for a more recent reference she reminds me of Hayao Miyazaki’s animations, especially the last one. Brilliant, and nice photo with the washed-out background making the hair glow.

    It works for her — but only because she’s less than 30 years old, with a fresh, rosy complexion. On anyone else it would just like like “that crazy lady with waaaay too many cats.”

    She looks much older in the first picture. At first I thought it was two different women. Wasn’t she in a previous post ‘that hair’? How do you get to picture same people over and over again? Are your photo shoots pre-arranged?

    Are you sure she’s not a model who just came from a runway show with her “stage hair”?

    If she was a model she’d be about half the size, wouldn’t she? And I’m glad she’s not, she’s gorgeous.

    I think that hair would flatter many people. And it crtainly doesn’t age her at all. Not unless she really looks like a ten year old.

    Here we are six years later and she still looks current. Love her.
