    I really like the way her wool jacket is tailored but that it's slightly too big for her.
    And I also really like the contrast with the patterned silk shirt peeking out from underneath.

      Good observation. Her expression may be eother melancholy or fatigued. Considering it would be three-quarters or there-about through the fashion shows, it may be the latter! I’m far more captivated by her enviably fine bone structure than her outfit, high quality though it is.

    I have been following your blog since the very beginning. And I am enthusiastic about almost every picture.

    But there are always some that stand out for me. This shot? Definitely one of those. – Her style, her expression.

    Have a nice day in Milano.

    I seems to me it would be excruciatingly difficult to live in Milan. Every day would be spent trying to "keep up with the fashion Joneses". From your photos, that would be hard.

    It's hard to believe that everyone in Milan dresses like this. How about a photo or two of middle class or working class Milan? Are they equally fashionable in a less couture way? Just wondering.

    Black, white, blue, ochre, red, tan; this shouldn't work at all.

    The fact that it does says one thing: intelligent dressing. The way the tan ankle strap casually waves at the ochre in the blouse – eeesh, I wish I'd have thought of that. Also love how the red bag marries the black and the navy.

    It's truly very interesting to me how some people absolutely love a style and some people just don't. I've read many comments about this shot that express the former and I am decidedly with the latter. I do not like the shirt peeking out from under the jacket; it's too busy and incoherent to me. However, I really like how subjective it all is. Subjectivity allows for personal style, because we don't all like the same things and that's pretty great.

    When one is physically beautiful, it is easier to get away with…anything.
    I love everything she is wearing, but the blouse seems like a forced effort to give the outfit a little "edge".
    I don't think it works. It upsets, detracts from, the jacket whose fabric is exquisite, and too heavy for the blouse. Maybe the blouse with a belt and a tiny cardigan? Or with black capris and ballet slippers?

    I love this … a little classic, a little playful, somewhat serious but a little careless, mostly reserved with a wild under-streak. The shoes, though, are critical.I wonder if there would be any way to work this without the stratospheric heels?

    Wow. Thats a wonderful outfit. Im amazed at how well she put this together. not very many people could do this at all. The fact that she wears this with such confidence and ease just adds the cherry on top.I have seldom seen such skillful styling.
    Now I have never been to Milan, but I am sure that people there are just people. Wear what suits you, and you will look good. I wear my old Levis and favorite Jeffrey Campbell boot( I love everything he makes), t shirt and leather jacket when I travel. I bring clean t shirts and undies with me, but not much else. If they didn't like, they can kiss it. No one has ever complained yet.
