    Love the whole style of the first lady. Tough hair and glasses, super cozy and roomy knitted pullover and then the delicate skirt. Just love it.

    These skirts were everywhere during the various fashion weeks. Wonder if hers is Rag and Bone. In any event, they make for beautiful photos.

    I'm not usually a skirt wearing female, but these skirts make me want to run out and buy one to wear. I have a feeling when one puts it on dancing has to happen!

    Perhaps you should buy Garance a long pale skirt, Scott, these are beautiful! I believe she wrote that you didn't like the look.

    Such a delightful surprise and so appropriate as the daffodils are in bloom. I think the zipper on skirt 2, needs to be fixed. It breaks the fluidity…

    Reminiscent of goddesses…..timeless grace, elegance, as delicately colored and textured as if from nature. If there was more of this gentleness and sensitivity to inspire people in the hard cold cities, would the world be a better place? I tend to think so…….

    It is a lovely look for the tall and lean. Long white skirts create a proportion issue that is critical…go ahead…try to imitate this look. NOT so easy as it looks…kind of like leggings..either it is perfect or you are a victim…

    What a magnificient photo. You can see the silhouette of a dancer who would delight us with an arabesque in any moment. I love it.

    it's a romantic look, and i like the first photo and outfit – she was meant to be photographed on that particular spot – but these sunglasses on her remind me disturbingly of michael jackson (as he would have liked to be, presumably).

    that gorgeous grey angora sweater..isn't that a stella mccartney?
    the first photo is just framed so beautifully, the grey of the sweater between the grey of the trees..
    the white skirt highlighted against a white road..
    silver shadows contrasting with silver shoes..
    cool( greys/silvers/whites) and ethereal.

    I think the woman in the first photo shows how amazing this look can be. The soft textures are wonderful. I also like the look in the second photo but the first one is my favorite. I prefer the look in these two photo's over the first one of the girl in Milan.

    Much too pretty and floaty and diaphanous for the city, in my opinion – I can't help thinking about dust and dirt, it's wrecking my head!!

    Those skirts are beyond ethereal. This is my favorite new feminine touch of the season — they put a woman's body on a pedestal, outlining & hinting without overpowering or upstaging. Beautiful.

    No matter how other street photographers try, i dont see in their photographs what i see in yours almost always, Authenticity. You capture the person’s spirit, personality, feel and dare i say it – love. a bit deep for a tuesday morning here in New Zealand, but… its true. Love Love Love “The Sartorialist” Peace.

    Hello – and thank you! This photo looked so good even small on the screen when you took it – and now after a little while it looks even better.

    For those who like the jumper: hey yes! There is a lot in it to like. It's a great Russian young talent who has just created his little brand: Forget-me-not.

    These jumpers are seriously the best.

    Have a nice week!

    I especially like the first. I like the contrast of her dark hair and sunglasses with her light sweater and skirt–the top grounds the bottom. The skirt looks so delicate, almost ethereal. The sweater adds visual, as well as physical, warmth.
