    Love the happy faces but I prefer this lovely woman when she wears more colour, like that wonderful purple dress from a while back – more memorable and individual.

    Love her smile and attitude. The golden rule, as ever, is simplicity. Less is more, especially regarding makeup.

    He seems like an alright guy, too, despite the floppy hat. Haven't seen those shoes (LL Bean?) in a while! And, remember the V-neck T-shirt discussion? I said crew-neck all the way; in this case, definitely (a tighter crew, even).

    She looks so happy, and that is what I like in this shot…there's only so many scowling teens one can take (being a scowling teen myself). Very nearly bought an oversized trench in a vintage store yesterday, but feared it was a little 'OTT". Will now go back to said store and buy myself that trench. Thanks. :)

    Every time I see a photo of Franca Sozzani she looks happy and satisfied – other fashion editors are often too serious, glum, bored looking, but Ms. Sozzani always shines!

    She has killer legs, every time I see a photo of her, i always admire her legs.
    The guy in the hat is the "homeless guy" you mentioned in your book, right? and he works for …Ralph Lauren (sorry, if i don´t remember well):-))

    She looks like such an angel as to float away if you do not hold on to her. Makes one wonder what the light moment was at the time. I dig the gents jeans (brand?), the curly beard, and his dock shoes…a very comfortable, sorted look

    I love Franca, she is amazing. Bare legs look so chic with high heels in summer. I love the diamond bracelet on her wrist and the beige trench. Her hair is always perfect. But most of all, she has a contagious smile.

    Franca is such an inspiration for me. If you know her, pass this along! Italian Vogue is a gift to women, her all-inclusive attitude, embracing all shapes, nationalities, and heights of women. I am especially thankful to her for Vogue Curvy, what a sweet relief to see women celebrated for who they really are and to see them comfortable with that. I also truly enjoy the philosophical aspects of Italian vogue, who else can mix fashion and philosophy? Why can't we get a clue here in the states?

    It is true: To smile brings out the best of you…and after that you see very well and relaxed dressed people. For me Robert Rabensteiner of L'uomo Vogue is one of the best dressed man around.

    omg HER SMILE!! she's just radiant here, I love it when she looks so happy, it makes her look even more elegant (if that's possible). Her bracelet is just amazing, it shines just like her hair!! A true inspiration for what a woman should be. How I envy her smile!

    Her blonde on beige everything is nice.

    I have to agree about the "Jed Clampett" hat and am questioning the t-shirt neck and denims.
    Take him away from front row and the editor of Italian Vogue and you basically have someone dressing very sloppily.
