    Youve captured through a single photo the definition of elegance.

    She is radiant! I love that you have an eye for women and men that carry themselves so naturally. The clothing is beautiful and highlights who they are not the other way around as is often the case in most magazines/fashion sites. Also, the majority of clothing you show can be worn by people of all ages (except maybe that backless dress on 6/28). Thank you for reminding me why I love fashion.

    Hang on, I’m having a Mrs. Robinson moment…

    OK, how about:

    - Thank you, Mr. Bond! It has been a long time… I would not have recognized you.

    - Yes, ever since I gave away my cello, I practice on zees scarf.

    - A hole in my tunic? (titters) You Americans are so amusing.

    And last but not least:

    - I’m 58 and Hot. Any Questions?

    she truly is; she reminds me of the lady a while ago from Lauren I believe, who was wearing aviators and a wool suit. Her ensemble is Parisian culture 101-wow…

    Love it — that tiny flash of red at the waist, the flawless posture. Lovely.

    Was she a ballerina? Just look at the way she stands…so graceful. And with the hair pulled back, the flowy skirt, flat shoes, and her svelte body, she really looks like one. I wish I could look like this in 40 years.

    I think maybe you should keep your eyey out for women with bodies that are harder to dress… for instance— short-waisted women who areoverly top heavy, or women who are actually fuller but appear 10 pounds thinner due to their outfit…

    What elegance. I wish I knew her secret – it’s indefinable.

    Wonderful! I love it when you show me what the fashion can look like off the runways, outside of the glossy magazines, and in this case, well above the age range those mediums focus on. Thank you, Sartorialist!

    She looks a little like an older version of the very stylish Sarah Jessica Parker.

    Welcome back to NYC. Gorgeous weekend ahead. Enjoy!

    She looks like one of those ballet teachers that used to be a professional and now owns her own studio. Very beautiful.

    If I draped a scarf like that over my shoulder, it would look like a blanket. It is her beautiful carriage, her grace and – I hate to say it – her reed-thin body that allow her to get away with it. She really could carry off a hessian sack.

    Down with prescriptive fashioninstic comments. Lets appreciate the NY looks for what they are – individualistic – down to the very last hairpin.

    She looks great. Let’s face it – to be this thin at this age and have a good sense of style with it is fool proof. The trick is to stay THIN.

    Interesting how so many of these comments are about the woman’s AGE, not about her style. Which is simple and elegant. So can we please get over the “age” thing?

    Simply proves that great style is ageless

    This graceful lady, of impeccable taste, defines ‘elegance’.

    What a incredible and personal style…who cares about the age, is not about that. Why that stupid obssession with people’s age or thinking how “i’m going to look in….”
    Get over about the age thing and try to see what is important about her and the picture
