    She looks really fab in those pastels, not an easy colour to pull off…I’m also in love with her earrings…
    Great bag too, makes the look a bit more fierce …

    It’s a very pretty look, but this woman doesn’t project a sweet, feminine image and I’d have liked to see her add an element that reflects her seeming ballsy confidence. Perhaps the sunglasses were meant to do that, but right now round glasses are too trendy to be meaningful.
    Or could be she thought that the classic cut of her clothes–and the structured bag (Choo?)–were enough to offset the girlishness of the pink. To my eye, at least, the pink’s in charge here. She needs a signal of “good bitch playing girly girl” to really make this work for her.
    Great shot, though. And despite the seeming negativity of my comments (frankly, I’m seeing myself in her) I give her props for capturing my attention.

    Great match indeed-
    I totally love soft(pale)pink
    And grey is always difficult to match with-so-Well done!
    The bag and the earrings give a touch of fashion style-
    The result is not fashion and not to classic, perfect balance!good*

    I love the way she way able to pull off a mixture of textures. So pretty in pink and grey makes her look sweet yet gutsy by using strong accessories like her dark glasses and rich brown leather bag.

    Its a combination not many could pull off but she did it flawlessly.

    pink and grey are a really strong combo, but I agree a darker grey would have created a bit more drama. Or perhaps if the scarf was a different fabric, a silk, it would break it up. Georgous proportions.

    just a side note, do we really have to be on the phone all the time?

    Gorgeous and luxurious. So rich and effortless looking. If there’s one key to French dressing, it’s that the outfit may have taken hours to pull together in front of the mirror, but it never looks like it did.

    She’s so riche, I just love it.

    I don’t like the bag, though. The hardware, specifically the rings, looks dated. Still, I’m nit-picking. The over all effect is smashing. I’m DYING to know what shoes she’s wearing. I’m going to guess chocolate Louboutin flats with her pants EXACTLY the perfect length.

    i love her clothes, but the lips, hair, and sunglasses ruin the look for me. the lips should be something classic…..maroons, browns, etc. the hair should be up. and the glasses should be more boxy and BLACK

    but the shot itself is fabulous

    sart, youve captured her movement well. she could by any kind of a modern day woman

    I think all Parisian women seem to look quite lovely.

    However, I do agree with the earlier comment about removing the label on the scarf! I thought I was the only one with this pet peeve! It sorts of distracts from the perfect look and quality of the fabrics and the outfit. It’s like forgetting to take the label from the sleeve of an off-the-rack suit jacket. Even if the scarf is cashmere or has washing instructions, you should assume it is “dry clean only” and remove the label.

    The combination of grey and soft pink is perfect.

    The Problem is, the combnation is much to soft for her. Stronger colours would match her face and hair much better, and would give her a fresher appearance.
    Same for accessoires.

    One person already stated it, a silk scarve f.e., in her colours could break it.

    I agree with “Anonymous(first)” : the outfit is great but with more unexpected sunglasses (or none) it should have more personality. It seems to have been arranged by a professionnal stylist instead of the woman who wears it. Very nice shot.

    I liked the colour-combo (pale-pink, pale-grey and honey-yellow together with the darkbrown leather) however… I didn’t like the buttons on the coat; they should have been another colour or material and I also think (sorry!) that the complete look was a bit too much ‘rich housewife out shopping’. In other words, I didnt find the look particulary interesting or inspiring. But like I said, nice colours though. And I would not say no to that nice soft leather bag… :-)

    I’ve always liked pink and gray, even as a kid. As I got older though, I thought it was too cute to pull off well. Nice to see the combination in a smart-looking outfit. Thank you.

    Clearly from this shot, it’s not what colours one wears, but how it is worn.

    I’m not a fan of pink and when I do wear the colour, it is only with hesitation first, then reluctance. But I’ve always loved seeing grey and pink together.

    This lady accented the cool pink and grey with a warm touch of chocolate brown. (=

    Personal p.o.v: While I’ve been seeing texture, patterns, layers, cuts and accents more on your site nowadays, the colours on this lady (that caught your eye) is a breath of fresh air; maybe it’s because I respond stronger to colours and that I’ve been waiting for something lighter amidst the heavy and sombre tones of winter. Thank you.

    She reminds me of Jemima Khan. The look would’ve worked with a grey, a camel or even a black coat imo: yet this pale pink (just as pale icey blue) makes it stand out. Love the two-tone scarf.

    not to be contrarian, but I actually like it that she left on the label. It adds a bit of nonchalance – just like the uncombed curls. Otherwise the total look becomes too precious.

    Fully agree with liza101.

    Also, I’d say she needs something dark – in addition to the bag and the sunglasses – to offset the sea of light pink and light gray. The tan scarf (is that a part of the gray one) doesn’t help anything. A black shirt or darker gray pants would look good.

    On the other hand, her complexion is dark enough to draw attention to her face, and away from her generally-light-colored outfit.

    very nice color combo. something for women to consider. as a man, not in my bag of goodies. but what i do wear often is a perennial favorite: grey and brown. i remember many years ago GQ published (a letter I believe) and noted that grey & brown were "ok" and that the Duke of Windsor make i "acceptable". Since then it's been in my arsenal. here is think is another complementary color set.
