    She’s one of my favorites! Love the gathering on the back of the jacket.

    She’s as beautiful and stylish now as she was twenty years ago. I don’t think I’ve ever seen better fitting pants on a woman.

    The ever fabulous Ines. Short hair, statement sunnies and long long legs. Elegance.

    I like how the blue of the jacket picks up the blue stripes in the pants. I’m not a fan of white pants (hard to keep clean, tend to add pounds), but the blue striping on these is nice. Wish I could see this from other angles. I’m curious to see what the front of the great little jacket looks like.

    Fun accessorizing – that appears to be a simple stack of Indian bangles.

    She is a beautiful woman and looks completely at home in that ensemble. I’ve never ever seen a picture of Ines where she looks bad. Not crazy about the sunglasses though–way too big for her delicate face.

    Ack, I can’t like this. Although she is an extremely beautiful woman, I think she has managed to combine every one of my fashion faux pas’! White trousers with a white top (I can only presume)? Oversized shades, aaargh and I dislike the cut of the jacket and find the bag boring! No no no!

    When someone talks about “French chic” it’s images like this that come to mind. A classy and harmonious ensemble, without being too “done.” Two thumbs up from me.

    Great shot, Sart. She looks beautiful!

    Scott – I beg your forgiveness for what follows… I think her jacket and bangles and hair and glasses and smile look bewitching and hot. But, as a man over 40, who loves life, his wife and the wonnderous beauty of the tapestry of life, I must also simply say, sorry, she has a really great rear-end.

    Okay, let the barbed male-pig remarks start flowing.

    I am sorry.

    But I speak the truth…

    I believe that she suffers from the same problem as I…when we smile our glasses, even if they are not oversized, rise off of the bridge of our noses!!! Or maybe I’m just trying to find a way that I have something in common with the fabulously chic Inès!!!

    An stunning, iconic woman but if I did not know whoo she is I’d say the bag is too dark and heavy for the summer ensemble.

    I’m so sick of this look. Every day at work…I look at this. Perhaps you should come to the Merchandise Mart in Chicago to take pictures.

    Honestly, would this exact same outfit be receiving so many comments if the person wearing it wasn’t “known”? What is so special or remarkable about this look? For me, the simple fact that she is smiling is the best aspect of this photo.

    This is the first time I have not hated the sight of an armpit bag. I thought they were gone for good. Hope she doesn’t start something..

    this the definition of “chic”… the whole look looks unstudied, simple, somewhat carefree and refined at the same time…

    I love those trousers! Can anyone identify them, please? ^__^

    I love the peplum-ed navy jacket and the red bangles. A cute, yet chic “nautical” color choice. :3

    That’s it a common enough look doesn’t detract from the charm. It’s not screaming ‘look at me’ which is what I sometimes think (sorry Sart) of some of the Milan pics.

    And. Bangles! Layered Indian glass bangles like the kind I used to try on as a kid (parents from India). What fun. I’m gonna do that. Get a nice straightforward jacket in a good color and add Bangles!

    She looks just as beautiful as ever. We should all wish to age as perfectly as M. de la Fressange (she’s over 50 years old, isn’t she?!). I’m in awe.

    Smiles are so underrated. She looks gorgeous.
