    It was such a beautiful outfit, it’s really a pity for the socks! The whole combo now sucks!

    I’m hearing Joni Mitchell, “Blue.” And also Carly Simon on her Torch album, singing “Blue of Blue.”

    I usually dislike the bobby socks trend but here I really do like it. I think it stops her outfit from being too serious. It could creep up on matronly but those socks add a touch of whimsy that show she knows how to have some fun with her clothes.

    Shes so polished and elegant, the little white cotton anklets really throw me. And not in a good way.

    love everything about this look / the wearer’s beauty, down to her crossed ankles.

    you’ve photographed her several times.. and i see why.. she’s stunning!

    Classic look, and I love the twist of the loafers and socks. Beautiful!

    Eleonora’s sense of style is great but I prefer when you catch people being natural, smiling, laughing, so tired of all these perfect pouts and pigeon toes, girls get real!

  16. Fashionthroughtravel

    October 31, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Wow! She looks amazing, I love this shade of blue and the fabric creases on the sleeves!

    Blue never looked so good. She looks amazing. x

    it’s funny for easily you get used to the way things are without even noticing – as the image was uploading I was subconsciously expecting to see a cigarette in girl’s hand and was surprised to see otherwise. is it just me or do you as well feel that cigarette is a casual friend of slim young fashionistas?

    beautiful blue!

    she could do without the white socks with those heels but otherwise a great look

  21. whitebrickwall

    socks with sexy pumps..It’s a fashion statement!

    it’s funny how easily you get used to the way things are without even noticing – as the image was uploading I was subconsciously expecting to see a cigarette in girl’s hand and was surprised to see otherwise. is it just me or do you also feel that cigarette is a usual friend of slim young fashionistas?

    The socks are not really on my taste but I love the skirt and the shoes!

    Oooops, accidental double comment, my apologies!

  28. Rob

    October 31, 2011 at 9:36 am

    Love how she pops from the background and how the busy passers by frame her beautifully. Great capture. Are those shoes Christian Louboutin I wonder? Beautiful!


    October 31, 2011 at 9:41 am

    Incredible! I love her face! And what an outfit, wow!

  30. Aida

    so beautiful. blue is the color.

    I love this bag and her prada sunglasses

    How sultry even with those playful white socks. The midnight blue is so decadent!

  37. Johnny

    October 31, 2011 at 10:11 am

    Not really in love with those white socks, I guess a pair of nice black leggings would have served her much more!

  38. Larissa

    She’s a beautiful girl!

    I wish I had the courage to wear a blouse like that.

  41. She loves her socks and I love her for that

    October 31, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Ah. Some folks don’t dig the socks-with-great-shoes combos that we see so often on your blog. But I do. And I love it. Gimme more.

    This lady looks like (or is) that mysterious lady you photographed sometime ago; the one wearing a salmon colored suit with the socks-and-heels combo? And almost disappearing into the wall behind her.

    I called her Mystique then. It’s her mole that gives her that aura.

    love this entire outfit probably costs a fortune, no jewelry needed

  43. ETC...

    What a great look! Love the bag…

    Beautiful blue, but socks are ugly with heels

  46. debbie

    Sorry, the socks have GOT to go.

    Socks: detracting from beautiful people’s natural good looks and otherwise impeccable style since 2010!

    She wore blue velvet
    Bluer than velvet was the night
    softer than satin was the light
    from the stars…

  56. Charikleia

    October 31, 2011 at 11:40 am

    As much as I like this photo, I have to point out my dissenting opinion on the outfit in two points:

    1. Bag colour & texture (similar to the dress but not the same)
    2. Stockings with the shoes (not as thin as I would like them to be)

    Otherwise blue velvet would have been amazing.

    Kisses from Greece!

    I love the blue bag… that’s my favorite color!

    Amazing photo, and love her look. The blue is gorgeous, and the sock in her heels so unexpected, yet nice


  59. Caitlin

    October 31, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    This outfit reminds me of a grown up sophisticated version of the swingy velvet dress with lacy ankle socks I used to wear as a little girl. The socks make the outfit hers, not just a beautiful dress with heels.

  60. Spirale Rouge

    October 31, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Socks ?! …Not really a good idea in this case!

  61. Audrey

    October 31, 2011 at 12:54 pm

    Just one of my favorite spots in Paris! She looks stunning and I love that she wore white socks with that stunning outift! What a gorgeous look.

  62. Breanna

    October 31, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    She has a striking face. Love the nuances to the shade of blue in her outfit.

  63. Fernando

    October 31, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    The socks ruined the whole outfit; without the socks the ensemble would be terrific!

    Wow, she looks amazing. I love the socks with those fabulous shoes!

    i adore this outfit. she looks absolutely lovely.

    Fitting inn.

  67. une chatte grise

    October 31, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    I think Taylor’s right about this one–without the socks, the outfit would look matronly (beautiful color or no); with the socks, it looks playful and retro.

  68. Kacie @ A Collection of Passions

    October 31, 2011 at 1:14 pm

    I really can’t decide what I feel about the whole socks with heels thing… I kind of like it here….

    October 31, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    i like her outfit and the drama on her face! nice shot, as always!

  70. Style Croissant

    October 31, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    GREAT picture, I love how she stands out from the small crowd and of course that velvet blue dress is breathtaking, I love the silhouette it gives her.
    And it really makes me want to wear socks with a dress it makes it so cool and preppy, perfect for daytime.

  71. juanita

    October 31, 2011 at 1:33 pm

    What a great outfit and she looks sensational by WHY, Oh WHY has she gone and put those silly socks on? Please leave them off next time!

  72. Rosie

    October 31, 2011 at 2:14 pm

    that is a colour and a half

    or maybe three quarters!

    Could do without the socks but those blues and those textures…I want that outfit to be what my bed looks and feels like :)

    October 31, 2011 at 3:11 pm

    Oh la la! Le velours bleu et les chaussettes!!!!
    She is so beatiful in her blue velvet and white socks.
    Je me demande si elle sait a quel point elle est unique!!!

    Takes a special girl to pull this look off!

  78. working socialite

    Those socks saved the outfit from being beautiful, but slightly matronly and makes it all hers, amazingly whimsical and totally fabulous!

    Allison (October 31, 2011 at 9:07 am) you took the words right out of my mouth. I much prefer seeing the more natural shots rather than the model-like posed ones.

    For example:

    Normally I like socks and heels but I’m not really feeling it this time. The rest of her outfit is lovely though.

  87. martine

    October 31, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    Beautiful. Its unique, simple, and the fact that she doesn’t feel the need to define the waist and wears the socks shows confidence. That blue velvet is riveting. Thats why there is a song and a movie about it, I suppose!! But the best thing are those sleeves. I just love them!!!!

  88. Name*

    October 31, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    I absolutely LOVe the look on her face. Its so much more natural then the “smile for the camera!” It has dignity. What a great pose and expression!

  89. Aga

    LOVE IT!

  90. Martine

    October 31, 2011 at 5:15 pm

    @ Johnny; There is no such thing as nice black leggings. Leggings are always gross. I can’t really see someone with good taste like this wearing leggings even on laundry day.

  91. Sarah

    October 31, 2011 at 5:52 pm

    I love socks with stilettos but I don’t like that these socks are white. The rest of the outfit however, whew! Beautiful. The proportions are perfect and I lovelovelovelove her beauty mark!

    Very beautiful… This blue style is so elegant. Amazing look.

    She looks so beautiful and classy.

  95. Alida

    October 31, 2011 at 6:49 pm

    I’m not sure that I’ve ever seen velvet used like that, where it is voluminous around the upper body (i.e. her sleeves). EVERY time I see it, it’s form fitting, and I hate it because it adds so much weight to a person, but done like this is great! Thanks for posting!

  96. bombom

    October 31, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    she’s so soft..i won’t call it perfect but her eyebrows kinda work in front of camera..

    Gorgeous “Blue Velvet”, “Betty Blue” Quintessential 1980 French movie moments am reminded on ohhh and “Diva” with the blue room and roller skating girl, thanks for reminding me and bringing that blue into now with a gorgeous photo.

    I really love how she wore socks here! It stops the outfit from being too prim and proper

    Lovely blue dress! everything is amazing!


  103. Sydneysider

    November 1, 2011 at 6:49 am

    She is the only girl in the world who could pull this look off. And she does. Hands down. Even if you don’t like / understand the socks, it’s the total effect here that is the point. She makes the look young and fresh, with a sense of humor. That is what makes it – and her – sexy. Gold.

    November 10, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    I actually love the socks! They bring a certain amount of playfulness to the ensemble-If she had worn black leggings or dark stockings underneath, She still would have looked gorgeous, but a little too predictable and like she was heading to a funeral. She is stunning and the outfits she wears really bring out her ethereal, otherworldly beauty.

    She always looks beautiful and I like her style, but it all seems too contrived, like she gets ready for hours just to go get photographed.

    So cool, so chic. It would be too formal without the socks.
