    LOOK at that stunning smile–it’s all I can see! I can tell she has a huge, gorgeous, contagious laugh.

    I’d choose an other color for the bag.

    Other than that…NICE CAPTURE!

    She is adorable! That smile is the best. I’m loving the brown, and those shoes so work- funny how that little bit of color in the shoes unifies the entire look.

    How lovely she is! And what a halal student bag. Note to designers: we students need trendy and durable bags that can fit and bear the weight of laptops, books, stationary and other miscellaneous handbag trinkets that can live in the darkest corners and pockets of said bag for months at a time because we know that ONE day that YSL nail pen/extra shoelace/untouched academic diary/8 different coloured highlighters will come in handy.

    Sart, these last several images, starting with the affable and awesome Carine Roitfeld, are simply inspiring and energizing. All stylish and beautiful individuals, with smiles so infectious– and not a hint of pretension (or silly pigeon-toe stance!).

    Thank you Sir for brightening my dreary day!

    Everytime I read your blog and see your pics I am inspired again by fashion. I used to live in Paris and loved the way we dressed there. Now i am working a corporate job where my clothing has become more of a uniform in my life, not a pleasure, boring and predictable! Thank you for reminding me of all there is out there, everywhere, in the world.

    I love that gleeful, unabashed smile! And the naturalness of the shot. The coat, dress and bag (and that’s a big bag) look great together, and the shoes and helmet seem to fit not only her outfit but her overall demeanor. Like her jewelry, too. Nice.

    I really don’t like this look.I don’t see any “Significance” in the outfit, other than it looks like she may have had on heels but then changed into sneakers to get on the subway. Its natural but careless. I don’t like it and I want to know exactly what the photographer thought when the picture was taken???????

    I agree with all the positive comments; in addition I want to add that I’m jealous of her legs, because at first glance, the shape of them made me think she was wearing heels. Alas no, she just has great legs.

    Love love love the blue of that dress! And the way she wears it with sneakers….even more feminine somehow.

    Nice attitude, absolutely and I love her dress and every item looks cool but, I guess I woudn’t go with a brown coat and a brown maxi bag at the same time…Anyway, she looks glorious…such a beauty!

    Love it. I particularly like the way she plays multiple lines starting with the 2 necklaces, the v-neck of her shirt/dress and the lines of the trench. Although nothing looks expensive, it all looks very comfortable without being frumpy- I would venture perhaps she has worn these pieces many times. I seem to recall Hogan made shoes like these. Again, the worn-in look makes this very soft and attractive. Jorge from W Palm Beach

    What a relief to see realistic shoes on a European woman! Maybe I won’t feel as self-conscious wearing the shoes I need to wear walking miles on hard, city streets next time I go. Seeing European and Asian women tottering around on heels just to look stylish is demoralizing.

    I think youcan find shoes like this at Camper most seasons. The big rounded collar on the coat is the same as the trenches Marni did about four or five years ago. LOVE it.

    Simple shoes (the brand) are also great for looks like this. Made out of recycled and organic material they make a statement. They have the cutest boots too. This is my favorite way to dress. Looks effortless.

    Anonymous, she’s out of Bocconi, the leading Italian business school: you don’t wanna be too “original looking” n there. She’s done a good job for the context.

    How could someone so young have such elegant, tasteful and simple style ?

    Its pretty much perfection .
    I love everything shes put together here and the colours are an impeccable blend

    The obvious quality of the bag and coat make it clear that this isnt a look that comes cheap
