    Wow, the jacket is a winner, Rick Owens maybe? I anticipate a lot of comments on the elastic waistband, I would have perhaps covered it with a dark tie or something, perhaps in the same tone of gray as to avoid breaking the line of the shirt/pants. But that’s just me. Beautiful woman! I bet she has tons of gay male friends who take her out to show her off; I know I would. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    Cute smile, the lines of the outfit flatter her figure, black jacket and this fabric all look nice together, even the pajama-look is working here. But… MUST it be jumpsuits again? WHY jumpsuits?

    This looks good from a distance. Up close I’m not crazy about the elasticized waistband nor the print itself, and for some reason the shoes have a slightly comical look, with their one or two painted toenails peeking out. Great jacket and bag, and a good overall look- I just think a few details could be improved upon.

    Brilliant. I love the silhouette. She knows her body is in perfect shape for the look, but plays coy with the billowy pant. The photo itself is amazing, as well.

    The gathered ankles do bring attention to the shoes, don’t they. I love them and hope someone here will know who makes them. And where they are on sale as I have very little budget for clothes and shoes right now.

    A gorgeous woman, and I am absolutely coveting her jacket and shoes.
    But I cannot get my head around the jumpsuit trend. They are so impractical and, to my eye, have a tendency to look like children’s pajamas.

    My only criticism is about the elasticized legs; otherwise it’s a cute look, and I love her impish smile. she’s got something going on that we can only wonder about.

    She’s invited to my next pajama party.

    I love these shoes too. Especially the creamy colour matchs very good with the grey overall in contrast to the jacket. The fabric of it seems very light and flatter the elegance of her walk.
    I am a big fan of this blog, I got the link by (Dresden)and (Berlin)
    which are my favorite fashion blogs here in Germany. You know them?

    Love this – she looks great.What a perfect little jacket – one of those wardrobe staples you keep forever. I like her shoes and the fact her bag is nice and discrete. The best accessory – her beautiful smile.

    The dowdiness of a jumpsuit is gone with the presence of a blousy cuff, , which draws attention to her thin and pretty legs. Wouldn’t be near as good without the jacket. I’m jealous of a climate where you can wear leather in September somewhere other than on your shoes!

    I LOVE the print on the jumpsuit!!! I agree that a belt or tie at the waist (obi perhaps?) would be just perfect… but she is so cool and refined – for a jumpsuit look even!

  17. Anonymous

    September 15, 2008 at 12:04 pm

    Ahh, the photo is so cool!! The smile, the head-tilt, the way she’s caught in mid-step! Was this posed?

    I love the silhouette, but I bet it would be just -spot on- if the items had some color to them instead of a greyscale palette. Though she wouldn’t echo the background in that case…

    It’s interesting the way the grey zebra print and the leather jacket and the heels look very urban on their own, but something about the fit of the clothes makes me think of a beachy, sarong-type outfit or something else with gypsy touches.

    I am wondering how tall she is that she can manage the loose and breezy items and the cropped bottoms like that and still look so elongated–maybe the heels and the high waist and the long hair contribute to that effect, or maybe she’s just eight feet tall.

    Such an enchanting shot!

    She’s lovely – looks a lot like Thandie Newton.

    Jumpsuits on the whole = shudder, but…she does carry it well. That said, I’m not a fan of the print, but do like the line of the leg (complimented by the elastisized cuff). Also love the shoes.

    I would recommend this for no one but her. She’s the first person I’ve seen look good in a jumpsuit. And, dadgum, as much as I would recoil in horror at this jumpsuit in a shop, she looks quite lovely in it.

    Great shapes on her, I love where the elastic hits her waist, and it looks likes a cozy mix of leather and (probably) jersey.

    Not a fan of the print though — makes me wonder if these are kids’ pajamas.

    the configuration of the face is the scaffolding by which any combination chosen by the young lady wld be entirely validated. Not to say she dosent look like the shit but she strikes me as someone who cld wear a black bag and make it look good. thus the jump suit’s great; i do like the print-but i think its a tad dour. the juxtoposition with the jacket works to a degree but isnt particularly striking. its the detail of the face that kills me. Striking Lady.

    Ah,French Connection – so hit and miss! I personally love this jumpsuit from FCUK and almost bought it when I had the chance on sale in August…but on me, it was TOTAL pjs. On her, with the jacket and shoes, it’s just witty and chic.

    The look as a whole is a winner and she looks great in it. The only problem I have with it, is that if you were to remove any element of the outfit (i.e. the jacket or the shoes), it would look as if she were running outside in a pair of stylish pajamas.

    I don’t think that this looks that great, sorry. Adults dressing like children is not sexy, it’s infantile.

    If you’re a grown woman you need to accept that you are not romping around the McDonald’s playroom, no matter how much of a rich bohemian you fancy yourself to be.

    The sloppiness and wrinkles adds to the overall pruniness of the look.

    Here we have a case (as in many pictures on this blog lately) of a gorgeous creature dressed not so gorgeously. But because she’s so damn fine it doesn’t matter that she’s wearing her jammies out in public. You forgive her. Who could do otherwise? Look at that smile!

    I would LOVE to love this look, but I’m around baby clothes all day and I can’t get ‘ONESIE’ out of my head. I think if this were in some type of silk or shiny fabric in black or a deep jewel tone it would be more like naughty bedroom wear, but all I see are animal print pjs with a leather jacket :( She is rather cute though.
