Her outfit is fine, but really, this woman scares me. I can't even explain why. I think I have to disagree with your "sartorialeste of the year" evaluation.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (4:33 AM) : 

Oh oh oh my!

If only all the woman of her age would dress like that...the world would be a better place.

I would advise longer coat or shorter skirt/dress, beside this quite ok


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:46 AM) : 

Well, she has great style but also a great body!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:44 AM) : 

Exquisite! I'm twenty years old and I honestly think that I have just fallen in love.


Blogger Jennifer said ... (6:56 AM) : 

love the black, the navy, the cream. the fishnets. the stance.
of all the hermes bags, that one, especially worn shoulder style, does not work with this outfit or her style as it appears to be in this picture.


Blogger whyioughtta said ... (7:58 AM) : 

Beautiful from the top of her head to the tips of her toes.

Love how the coat is not a trench...but has a slightly trenchy feel.

the europeans are so far ahead of us, so much more elegant, more interesting.

Looked at this photo for a while then noticed what title you gave it: "Sartorialeste of the Year Nominee"


Tried to figure out what made me stare at her so long. The fishnets? The skirt that's not short but hints at short (err, or makes you wish it was shorter so you could see more of those legs)? The cocked head? The promise of a whisper from her ? The backdrop of motorcycles any of which would be ready to whisk her away without question?

Damn, girl! You got it going ON.

Thanks, Sart

P.S. Thanks in advance, too, for all the photos you've promised to shower us with in the coming days.

C'est magnifique!! Where can I buy that beautiful updated trench?


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (9:06 AM) : 

Wow, she looks fantastic! The hair, the coat, the dress, the shoes. She has a great style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:07 AM) : 

Absolutely beautiful! I love the legs.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:34 AM) : 

So classy and yet terribly modern. The dark blue trench and the fishnet stockings give her such an attitude ! Simply amazing...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

Love the legs


Blogger looksinto: said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Stunning! She is beautiful. The wide fishnets particularly caught my eye - they lend a rich pattern to what could be a pretty everyday outfit.

To me, they convey her European milieu - it seems as if very few women here in Mid-western America embrace fishnets as a wearable hoisery outside of costume parties. It's annoying because they are so feminine.

Thanks for the great Milan pictures!

This lovely Lade is truly elegant. Adore the total look of her!


Blogger The Spicers said ... (10:54 AM) : 

What a gorgeous full-skirted coat, chic stockings, and beautiful hair on a woman of a certain age. Love her look!


Blogger Pret a Porter P said ... (11:28 AM) : 

I agree


Blogger G said ... (11:40 AM) : 

She is my new fashion idol.

I love my America, and I love our casual vibe. But sometimes our casual translates to sloppy, and we do it because we're afraid to look old if we dress like grown-ups. I saw three women the other day on the subway. From the rear I thought they were about 18 or 20, but when they turned around they were all at least 45. The incongruity between their clothes and their faces made them look like hags. They had good shapes, obviously, so if they had been dressed like this woman, they would have looked fab. So I am seeing that dressing like a grown-up is really the way to look smart all the time, the real cool. It's wonderful to see women who look like women, not trying to be teeny-boppers. This goes for men too. My girlfriends and I are always swooning over some foxy guy who walks by in a suit. 35 year old guys in sneakers, ring collar t-shirts & Dockers? I'm over it. I'm even over it if you're 25.

This lady is glorious. She's inspiring me to be less casual, get back to high heels & showing some leg. It looks nice and you know what? Men love it and who am I to not want male attention? It all ends soon enough. And fishnets are going on my shopping list!

Thank you Scott, for this blog, it really encourages me to joie de vivre!

Simply Catherine Deneuve in Belle de Jour.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:59 AM) : 

Fantastic!!! If this beautiful woman put her outfit together herself she should seriously consider a career as a stylist. Everything is just so and though she has made some very fashion forward choices she doesn't appear to be trying too hard.


Blogger blushing apples said ... (12:26 PM) : 

I dont usually like that type of thights, but here she made it look refined, by the whole outfit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:45 PM) : 

So Italian, So Milano, So fabulous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:09 PM) : 

Very beautiful--the coat is amazing.

Scott, when do you plan to post your SartoriaList? It is April...


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:33 PM) : 

Really? I think she looks very chic, but not anywhere as interesting as some others you have posted. Classic? Yes indeed, but why is it unique?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:41 PM) : 

Have to agree. The sort of woman one wants to be seen with in swanky restaurants and bars. It's nothing to do with age, I'm not even sure it has to do with sex, it's just pure chic. Her look is fantastic. Disregard the comment about sex. A stunner no doubt about it.


Blogger Pillole Di Moda said ... (1:45 PM) : 

who is she? i am italian and she looks familiar..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:29 PM) : 

I don't think it's about the individual articles that this person is wearing, but rather it is about the confidence and overall attitude she exudes that gives her great style.

The fact that she doesn't care about what we're all saying is what validates her style -effortless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:49 PM) : 

I´d like to dress ando look like her when I grow up...simply fab!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 PM) : 

ugh!!! i just loveeee this blog! please never delete it; different aspects of the world's beauty would go unnoticed if you did. keep up the good work!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:13 PM) : 

give this women a milkshake or three


Blogger Ephemeralthing said ... (3:55 PM) : 

Perfect, well, .... very elegant combination of colour hues.
Like a breeze.


Blogger The Vintagent said ... (4:10 PM) : 

That's a Marni coat, in the lovely blue-grey they've been making this year - my wife has a similar one, the fabric feels rubberized, but silky, and it makes great sounds as she moves.

I love the fishnets, they really are the unexpected accent which makes her outfit exceptional. You can buy every item of her clothing off the rack, but it took some wit to put it all together.


Blogger Mrs Fashion said ... (4:21 PM) : 

Please can we vote for our Sartorialestes of the Year?

she is a woman who isnt afraid...she looks amazing, so stylish, classic with a hint of sexy - very inspiring!

"Sartorialeste of The Year Nominee"




Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:44 PM) : 

i'm almost speechless. she is heaven on earth


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:24 PM) : 

Very chic woman, indeed. Although I must admit that I don't see what is so outstanding about this one.


Blogger Knitizen K said ... (5:54 PM) : 

I love that you chose a mature woman as your Sarorialeste of the Year Nominee. Great style, and she projects a confidence in herself that translates as true beauty. Bravo Sartorialist!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 PM) : 

My Goodness...

if I spotted this lady in the street - looking just like this - I would think about her all day...

Scott.... you have the Rock of Eye... for more than a cut of cloth.

She is perfect. The ahir, the figure. The coat. The tights. The shoes.

The Look.

11/10. Wow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:17 PM) : 

I adore the attitude of your blog and the fact that you cover all ages, shapes and sizes. Thank you for seeing the best in everyone. Breath of fresh air.


Blogger The Federalist said ... (8:46 PM) : 

I am 23 years old. Cannot tell her age but will guess she is my senior; I must say that this is the most attractive woman I have seen in a while. Seriously, just an iconic woman any man of any age will find beautiful.


Blogger Asi Mod said ... (8:51 PM) : 

I love that her dress is longer than her coat and you can see the hem peeking out from beneath. It looks so 1960s and retro.



Blogger MARIA H said ... (8:54 PM) : 

Self asured femininity!
That is only for a refined few.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 PM) : 

Very Graceful and she makes it work though on someone else that longer skirt shorter coat would look sloppy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 AM) : 

An Italian Charlotte Rampling! And yes, a nominee.


Blogger Peter said ... (12:35 AM) : 

I have to agree about the nomination. But I wouldn't give it to her outright, need to see the other nominees first!


Blogger Miss Shades said ... (2:11 AM) : 

the colour of her coat/dress is amazing.
the whole photo has such a beautiful colour scheme.


Blogger Eastern Aisle Credit Solutions, Inc. said ... (3:37 AM) : 

she has a gorgeous outfit, but there's just something lacking..


Blogger Stratos Bacalis said ... (5:32 AM) : 

She's a finalist for sure! I'd love to see more like her!


Blogger Cut of cloth said ... (5:55 AM) : 

This woman has timeless sex appeal
She has a look of Catherine Deneuve
Very French Italia Moda


Blogger Iwantajobinfashion said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Stunning coat length. I am not impressed with her fishnets though. They always seem a little desperate to me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Here´s a prediction. The new millenium high style will come from over forty men and women, and not from the younger ones.

When I am truly moved by a sartorial creation (I mean real emotion not just mere preetyness), it´s always the individual work of a full grown person.

This lady is beyond any age-trend frontier.
She has created a piece of territory and she reigns over it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:50 PM) : 

I adore the whole look! I spotted the same look this past Winter whilst shopping in Glasgow- though the woman there wore a lovely beret and had a toddler clutching at her coat!

My thoughts were "Smashing! What a great look for a young Mother!"

Kudos to you for such a great site!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:04 PM) : 

Sart, I adore you. You are a true gentleman and you really know style. She is magnificiant. I do agree with Girl Spy re: women in their 40s and 50s who have great bodies but dress like teenyboppers here in America. I am in my early 50s and let me tell you, it is damn hard to find clothing out there that allows one to express one's self without looking like the newly wed or the nearly dead. This woman looks like a strong, classic, elegant, WOMAN. What adds so much to the class of her outfit is her face and her hair. I'll wager she has none to minimal make-up on and her hair is well taken-care of,but not over-dyed or styled. Not like here in the US where we have to constantly be affirming that we have breasts or ass to others, that our femaleness is hooked into our feritility and youth,not our age and experience and confidence. She affirms her femininity to herself, and therefore affirms herself to the world. What a relief to see her here. My faith in you is renewed, because you obviously understand real women, unlike most of the US, which is obsessed with fertility, breeding, youth, and NO CHARACTER. Look at her face. THAT IS what makes the outfit...not the other way around. Bravo, Bravo BRAVO. xoxoxoxoxoxo, Sart, from a sexy, confident, strong 50+ real woman.


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:12 AM) : 

This is the kind of style I pictured on the woman from 4/21; elegant, modern, timeless, seductive.


Blogger Karen Morgan said ... (10:20 AM) : 

Perrrfection! The trench is perfectly fitted, the hair is like a lion's main, the bangles, the fishnets and the pumps are pulling all the planets and all eyes into her forcefield. Fierceness.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:57 AM) : 

what a simply beautiful blue..

unfortunately, this problem of people dressing in a slack street style is prevalent in australia too, especially men who wear tight coloured tshirts, dirty sneakers, and hoodies well into their 30s, before giving in to bland chinos and polos in their 40s and on.
it's a pity that we've followed the american route rather than the european one (though it's no suprising given omnipotent US culture). we having also followed that other american trend of getting fatter, which of course does neither health nor fashion any good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 PM) : 

tres elegante
When I grow up, I'm going to be pretty-powerful like her. the fishnets, the trench, the ice stare


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 PM) : 

Of the year? You must be kidding, try of the DECADE. Wow. A "10"
Helloooooo Mrs. Robinson. Seriously, if you have her contact info I'll fly to Italy tonight just to have an espresso with her.
