    I love this. I always think doing up the top button somehow makes a powerful style statement on a woman. It’s very Rag and Bone. I like that she looks classic and not hipster here and I think she achieves it by selecting a good quality shoe. Very smart. Thanks for the inspiration!

    comme des garcons indeed. The socks and shoes are particularly inspired. Very well done and you don’t doubt her femininity for a second.

    I think this look mainly works because she has such a beautiful face! Despite being dressed in a very masculine way it is extremely clear that it’s a woman. I’d like to see this look on someone slightly curvier, to create even more of a juxtoposition.

    I can not love more this outfit. Its a school boy from the 60s, its a beautiful feminine girl from 09.
    I dont know why, maybe because of the smile and the innocence of the whole look, it made me think of alex in clockwork orange.

    It really is the hair that sets off this look for me: very feminine with a messy boyish tinge. I think she is stunning!

  27. Paul Walters

    February 2, 2009 at 11:12 am

    And yet, so unlike the boys in all the right ways! Terrific. Her look is almost like a tongue-in-cheek statement that while she may be dressing in a similar manner as “the boys,” she oozes femininity. Gorgeous girl.

    perfection! but i think it’d be more difficult to pull off for a curvy girl (especially in the chest area). her stance and expression are pure effortless cool and sexy… possibly one of my favorite posts EVER!! (especially because it’s so classic)

    Gender-bender outfits usually strike me ugly and forced, or disingenuous… but this girl is so sexy and feminine that the conservative boy’s clothes make her even MORE feminine and sexy.

    There is a teasing, tongue-in-cheek quality to her look coming from the juxtaposition of her sweet and girly face with the boyish get-up. Clever.

    My attention went straight to the shoes.. and I’m wondering, are they boy shoes? or girl shoes? did she go to a shoe store and picked those from the men’s department?… Maybe they are her brother’s shoes… ok, I’m obsessed with the ‘how’ of the aquisition of the shoes… did she say anything to you when you took the photo? :)

    really great chic!
    it works because she’s a really beauty and the contrast between the way she makes her hair and the strict silhouette of her slim legs. she’s got the look meg ryan still wants to have…

    please go on loke this!

    I'm really fascinated by this style, because although it's really boy-ish and doesn't show anything sexy, it's really interesting and fits the situation; I mean, it's a lovely day outfit for work&school. I don't like: the so tight shirt collar and the white socks in view. But I like: pullover's colour (intense), the jacket's buttons, the hairstyle, and shoes. It's a pity we can't see the bag.

    Her ”boyish” style reminds me of a seducers story in.. The art of seduction by robert greene.

    There’s something extremely sexy about her outift, its very charming.

    I like the contrast of colors between her socks and her shoes.
    Her socks really matches her shirt.

    Definitely very interesting style, I’d even say it could be an androgyny style. There are so many masculine and feminine characteristics mixed in the outfit and her look. Perhaps because I’m also Parisian that this style works for me.
