Carolina, WOW!!!!! If I were a woman, and there are moments I question if I am, I would wear Herrera based simply on seeing how fantastic she looks from day to day. I have seen her walking around the Upper East Side close to her Boutique, and she always looks incredible! Kuddos!!! Carolina do menâ€™s wear!!!
An eternal beauty. I have seen her out and about in nyc many times over the years and she is the epitome of the truism that “simplicity is the key to elegance”. As always, I love your work and blogsite.
In a very very brief interlude at a ‘fashion’ college in the south an anomaly I know……. as the new chair in fashion i had the dubious honour of selecting a fashion hero/ine for a glittering prize given by the said college my first choice was Carolina Herrera one of my staff new/worked for her in a previous life this seemed more than a coincidence at the time Fortunately I found out pretty quickly that this turgid school of fash… no I cannot call it fashion … of clothing…… was definitely not the place for me However the town offered more its people were welcoming from the bell boy to the president of the school It was a hot and sultry and beautiful place like Carrera it held a mystique a sense of place of being IT was incredibly beautiful this shot is a small reminder of what might have been achievable at a different time and place
Sexy, intelligent, so chic that it hurts to look at such a splendor…the one we call, “Carolina”…cha cha cha. Have loved her for years, never ceases to inspire or amaze me. But someone please tell me, has my dear Carolina had a facial surgery touch-up?
Love her clothes. She is a godsend to Renee Zellweger and any other woman who wants to wear chic, ladylike, flattering dresses that are well cut and fashionable, and always have something interesting going on that rewards the viewer’s attention, but that never overwhelm the wearer’s body or personality. I think of her as a feminist clothing designer: a designer who really values the *woman* as a person and makes clothes that frame her personality and style and movement, instead of turning a person into an object. I wish there were more designers like her who realize that women want to look beautiful, and sexy, and still have some dignity at the same time (i.e., nothing too see-thru, no necklines that plunge to the crotch, no leg slits that risk an Ashley-Judd-at-the-Oscars blooper).
I love this! What a gorgeous woman and role model. I just got my first Carolina Herrera dress, a gift from my aunt, and I feel beautiful and special when I wear it. As much like a lady as I probably have ever or shall ever feel. A wonderful feeling!
ItÂ´s nice to see a mature woman for a change. I like her skirt a lot,it is just the perfect lenght and she has beautiful legs plus shoes to go along with it.I donÂ´t fancy the blouse so much and maybe she has a bit too much make-up on too.
You always get to capture the most stylish of the crowd! Either you’re just really lucky, but you’re also a fashion insider now so you should know where to hang out:P Carolina always looks so dignified for her age,fresh and graceful. I would love to wear one of her flattering dresses.
Well, if what I’ve found by googling her name is accurate, she was born in 1939.
Cosmetic surgery or not, I think she looks fantastic for her age from both the neck up and the neck down.
I think this outfit is absolutely perfect. She looks modern and up to date. I only wish some (OK, a LOT) more women would try to achieve this look rahter than going for the “mutton dressed up as lamb” horrors that abound.
she is so very stunning, but also, i must commend mr. sart because the whole photo is really lovely. did you scatter the leaves on the ground just so, in colors that would accent her deep red shoes and pedicure, and her champagne-colored hair? did you purposefully frame her right beneath those bending branches? the whole picture has such a crisp, fresh fall feeling. i really do need to know where i can get that skirt. and shirt, and shoes. and relaxed poise. really, those shoes are killer.
Absolutely beautiful and elegant. It shows, what a simple white shirt can do. Many women tend to forget about it too often. I personally adore wearing dress shirts, with trousers — for the office — or skirts like her — in the evening. It gives a bit of a masculine touch, that can be dressed up or down, and always radiates a basic elegance. Supposedly, this is what menswear is all about…
I have to admit she looks elegant enough, no question. But if I lived in a building where I saw a designer walk by each day, I’d prefer someone who changes it up, to designers like Lagerfeld and Herrera who only ever don their signature look. I can understand why they would I guess, it’s just fun to see something new.
And it’s interesting that Wintour’s staple hairdo was widely viewed as in need of a freshening – but that is not the reaction to CH’s monochromatic scheme. I guess because she is a [arguably, as the above poster mentioned] designer, whereas Anna is more about the whole industry? i mean, I dunno.
Oh! And if anyone’s seen that new awful (hence highly addictive) show, Gossip Girls, about the Park Avenue crowd? One character is a designing woman whom they’ve dressed in the Carolina uniform, even the hair.
