    She is russian. If I remember she is a buyer. Typical Russian glam chic

    Normally I wear something close-fitting on top with my wide leg trousers to give a sense of balance, but the cropped jacket and vest make such an interesting shilouette.
    Too much makeup, though. I think she’d look younger and prettier with more natural neutral tones.
    but lovely none the less.

    You’ve posted this woman on your site a number of times before. I just don’t get the obsession with her.

    she really knows how to work a look that works for her. I love the wide trousers, i think that shape is really great on a lot of women it makes the legs longer and the silhouette more lean and languid.

    The trousers she wears in the second picture really help to elongate her legs and also the fit of it is flattering. :)

    I really like these phrases that you have, like “abstract inspiraion” and “personal silhouette” they sum up all these things that ive been thinking for years but could never come up with a word for.

    i like how she has a certain way she likes to look, and is able to maintain that silhouette but with different clothes. it’s good to see someone who adapts fashion to themselves instead of adapting themselves to fashion.

    the fur piece is beautiful, also i love how it has pockets.

    Now that’s what I like. How her pants are a big loose and you can still see her figure. Just amazing.

    I like the wide pants in the second picture. The first picture is flawless. She kind of looks like a younger version of Beyonce Knowles’ mother.

    This silhouette was all the rage a few years ago in the Argentine tango circles in Paris and Brussels. The wide-legged pants (hemmed to skim just above the ground when wearing high heels) would swish as the dancers moved. Very elegant.

    I thought of Beyonce in the first pic.

    Great clothes. Hair colour doesn’t do her complexion any favours, nor the make-up. (Yeah, cos I am such a fashion icon, at home, with my lap-top with my sweat pants on ;) )

    It's lovely to see this kind of glamour! Maria's dress code is more sophisticated and mature than her age requires, but somehow it's quite a refreshing style that would look outdated & "trying too hard" on anyone older. This girl's elite look demands to be noticed. So sexy, so chic, so femme… I'm so tired of seeing young ladies wearing tight jeans, paired with chunky heel, and the must-have boyfriend sweater. Enough, grow up, and learn how be a lady again!

    The second outfit is just about perfect. I love the cropped jacket and those perfectly tailored pants. However, I keep staring at her eyes – why would such a beautiful young woman take make-up pointers from Liza Minelli?
