    I have been gazing on this excellent photograph and have concluded that she can literally go anywhere in this outfit, that I love linen, that I love her hair, that I love her left eye. The necklace is not an ornament, but
    her authority. The hell with tatoos; one magnificent necklace can get you all the way through life.

    She's Spanish though, and fantastic at her 74 years old. Eloisa Bercero style has always been fantastic.

    I'm not usually a fan of jumpsuits, and I'm not sure if I like this one (is it chambray?) but there is just such a sense of timeless elegance in this photo.

    One of your best photos yet. The jumpsuit, the Victorian choker,the nonchalance. And what a face. What is she pondering??

    Love the black and white photo. Such a serene look. Interesting: mature woman, watch band, necklace, stance (hands in her pocket). Don't like the mannish haircut. Like the texture of her outfit, interesting buttons, and the wrinkles give it character.

    See, I dont like the whole jumpsuit trend, but I like it here, as she breaks the verticality of it with her sweater, which is much more substantial than just a plain belt. It helps that it is made of what looks like old linen, yet with good stitching and vintage-looking buttons. Overall it feels like a very utilitarian outfit, counterbalanced by the cameo (thats what they're called, right?) and I love the wristband of her watch. Jorge from WPB

    A stunning image.

    I do like how the sweater around the waist breaks up the linen jumpsuit (?). The accessories are stunning too, simple. There is power in simplicity. And the popped collar and rolled up sleeves works too.

    Great necklace, I almost feel like her pose could be immortalized in the cameo.

  37. Anonymous

    August 25, 2009 at 10:26 am

    Yes, I love it! The she has aged so gracefully. Not in the sense of fading into some conservatism but staying current and expressing depth of experience
    through simple but sophisticated means; the cameo,
    double watch band, knot in the sweater sleeves, subtle texture variations.

    Very fine portraiture Scott. Could you please post a color version as well?

    I love this fabric (I'm guessing it's linen, so light and airy and easy to wear), I love the military-style upper half (so flattering!), and I love her feminine necklace. I wonder if the legs taper down at the bottom or not and what kind of footwear she's got going on. Also, she's kinda rocking the popped collar, and onesies are just so much fun to wear.

    This is definitely an outfit I would wear. Thanks for the inspiration.

    She's the kind of woman I aspire to be. Unfortunately I live in Dallas, Texas where this kind of natural and original beauty is totally unappreciated and considered threatening.

    Mesdames et Messieurs,
    Awfully sorry, but I think a couple of precisions are needed here. To begin with, I am not a Spanish but an Armenian lady, and actually I am only 64! The same one that appeared on other photos by the amazing Scott Schuman: Parisian of certain age/ The Lady in denim jumpsuit, Paris/The Silver Fox/Sand, Grey and Stone.
    Wish all of you the best of luck.
    Thank you, dear Scott, and congratulations!

    They are not one, but a thousand worlds apart one from another!

    This woman totally dispells the myth of the dowdy, frumpy granny. She looks modern, chic, and above-all, timeless. I love how she paired the classic cameo pearl necklace with the very now linen jumper. The pop of the collar and the oh-so effortless sweater wrapped around her waist add a personal touch. And, making this an even more fascinating look, is the woman's face itself. So noble, so patrician. Veristic but elegant. Brava!

    Her face is real. For me, that is more powerful than a jumpsuit or a necklace or any accessory. I look forward to a time when women remember that nothing is more attractive than reality and stop Botoxing themselves and all that other stuff that just erases your humanity and your individuality.

    This woman is beautiful because she is herself.

    OMG! This is the most stylish woman ever. I remember her from a recent photograph in a marvelous coat. She obviously loves linen! She is what the French call "Jolie Laide" – not conventionally beautiful but strong and striking. I hate all-in-ones but this was made for her. And I'm loving the formal necklace with it. Was she wearing espadrilles? Love her double-strap watch a la Hermes.

    I would love to see the color(s) of her garments, but I can also see why the b&w works so well, i.e. It emphasizes the texture more.

    Look what she's done with the accessories! Without them we have a plain jumpsuit, but with tied sweater and necklace it's perfect class.

    This picture is so well accepted by everyone, that I feel really belonging to the very small minority writing my opinion. The picture itself is fine, I do like her watch and the way the sweater is tied loosely on her waist. Yet somehow, I feel strangely sad and I don´t know why.

    Whilst aesthetically this picture is beautiful – I also feel it's kind of heavy. I don't know how to explain it, but all the greyness, the textures of her clothes, the dark background- just seem to bog me down.

    I LOVE the necklace though.

    Yes, yes, yes….bring back the days of Georgia O'Keeffe and Anna Magnanni when beauty was from the inside out, fearless, unapologetic.

    Anonymous: That is precisely what I was thinking. There is something about a strong woman with a little age. Georgia O'Keefe comes to my mind, too – as well as Jane Goodall. I like to see real faces – not botoxed, overly made-up ones. I do not care for her jumper however. A strong face can also register as a bit masculine. The pearls are lovely and soften her face. The jump suit is a bit too manly.

    Good photo. Nice necklace. Stylish lady.

    I still don't understand why people want to wear a jumpsuit. It is not very practical…

    Dear Scott
    This photo is so stunning it took my breath away. One of the very few advantages of growing older is that one comes to know through years of trail and error what really suits one's body and personality. This lady has it down pat.

    Gorgeous photo! Probably one of my favorites of yours so far. The textures and tones here are wonderful. I like the neck piece with this outfit. It's an unexpected and unforced combination. She's very comfortable and relaxed with herself. Very nice.

    Sart, please keep asking women of a certain age to have their photos taken by you. Those of us who are in that age group eagerly watch for pics of women with style.

    Thank you for your beautiful work.
