    clean. strong. uncomplicated. simple yet punchy. his aviators and watch really stood out thanks to his taking the simple and nicely fitted route.

    Hey, that’s mister Persol / tight white tee.
    Still rocking the tight white and nicely working the shades.

    The contrast is fun and interesting between his minimal elegance and those hyped Balmain shoulders…

    That’s a quite good photo that questions fundamental fashion concepts and maybe deviances.
    Male and female acceptation of exhuberance in style too, for example.

    Very well done.

    I really can’t decide how I feel about the Balmain jacket. Honestly, I like it but know that it is completely over-done. Women need to put those in their closets for 10 years, and when they become suburban moms it will be useful again. Because
    1. Their daughters be the hip girls.
    2. They will remember and remember their youth.

    He’s amazing. Why is he always on her arm? Should be on mine, or me on his. Very handsome man.

    Although… She is rockin it. It just seems like they don’t quite fit… together.

    I don’t like coordinating looks for couples by any means. But I think you should at least look like you’re both going to the same place.

    Oh well, maybe they aren’t.
    In any case, together good, amazing separate. Or maybe I just want him to myself.

    OMG I have never seen that Balmain jacket on a normal person!!! That one is my favorite, I was soooo pissed that it sold out on in less than a day. it makes the jacket seem a tad bit more attainable to the rest of us, even if its just a tad.

    He is simple perfection – crisp, casual and striking. In contrast ( not to say that contrast can’t be terribly interesting) she looks fussy, a bit over done. Perhaps if she wore the jacket with a simple white T…. to my mind it’s just too much of an otherwise good thing.

    Love the gentleman, nice twist on a classic colour combination and a siple jeans and sweater look. Yes, he pulls of the white jeans very well, i like his manly watch too – a Rolex?? The lady – i’m sorry oo many trends on one body. The Balmain jacket is everywhere – for a reason, it’s fun and different – but i think it looks better fastened. I don’t like it with he leather leggings and dangly earrings, personally i think the jacket looks better dressed down and so do tight leather leggings-neither is happening here. The gold bracelet, ok, it’s a pet hate of mine, but don’t mix gold and silver unless you’re Pam Hogg…

    He looks fabulous. Simple and clasic and elegant. She is beautiful, but I’m not feeling the outfit. The balmain + the broaches + the earings + the bracelet is completely overdone. I’ve yet to become a true fan of that jacket. There was one picture I saw on here where someone puled it off. Otherwise, the jacket makes you look like you have a humped shoulder.

  57. sarahn

    April 3, 2009 at 8:46 am

    I might be the lone dissenter, but these Balmain jackets just look ridiculous. So obvious and costumey.

    Even in a casual outfit, the accessories really make the gentleman look put together. The white jeans are so stylish.

    Obviously Anna dello Russo lives for fashion, and can wear anything. Still, I often feel she’s overdressed and wearing ‘it’ items rather than expressing herself. I know she’s a collector, and has access to everything, but this jacket, as beautiful as it is, is overexposed already. George Cortina looks natural and chic.

    Yeah, he’s cute. But her – she’s amazing. I never thought anyone could carry off that combo, but she does it. The pants are perfect for the jacket, and the blouse. . . well done.

  71. Wanderlusting

    April 3, 2009 at 3:42 pm

    HE, though, looks fabulous – maybe because he is in contrast to her but really, this is why NOT following every trend and relying on simple, classic looks will always stand the test of time.

    the strong hard balmain jacket contrasts beatifully with his soft fresh look but I wish she had worn something simpler underneath to really show it off. theres too many things going on with her outfit

    Hmmm… A heavy, black, 19th-century-inspired military jacket with exagerated shoulders and ornate stitching from Balmain… worn over a Givenchy white top with a fancy collar… festooned with more Givenchy- baroque pendants on the chest… all over tight black (looks like)leather pants…

    A bit too much no? Especially since she wore it during what appears to be a sunny, spring day.

    Ms. Anna always looks good. Even though I don’t like the Balmain jacket she does rock it as well as Michael Jackson AND Sgt. Pepper did.

    Mr. Cortina is really the epitome of Euro cool. He always looks like he’s on his way to his yacht.

    They look like they’re going to different events.

    I know it is a Balmain jacket, and I should love it, because everyone else apparantly does, but I think that jacket looks like something she stole from someone who works at the circus. Just because it has a name or brand does not always make it a beauty!

    The more i looked at this picture the better and better it looked. At first I dont know how nice it was to see them two together. Separate they would look just great. Together her jacket gets iffy. But separate it is more understandable. He just looks awesome, impeccable. Individually she looks great too.
    Then I started thinking why not? Fashion is about expressing who you are, and it is not discriminating. Two people with two very different looks might have very different opinions and thoughts, but to see them together with those smiling faces I think its just wonderful! It makes me feel good after a while! Great pic!!
