Now that's how you add some color to a fall wardrobe!

A "painting -photo" again.
Great shot!

great color. particular woman.

That's Monica, she's from my hometown Ålesund in Norway! I think she's a designer now. Great shot of her!

Green?? Was it her eyes?


Blogger jen said ... (4:55 AM) : 

she is amazing!


Blogger daniqueconijn said ... (5:35 AM) : 

FANTSTIC hair!!!!!!!!!!
(sorry no other explanation suited)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:59 AM) : 

Her hair is absolutely gorgeous, and not only the colour. And the little red stripes in the jacket--perfect.


Blogger ad said ... (6:59 AM) : 

her hair looks like a prada garment...fantastic sense of colour, great jacket !


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:11 AM) : 

She makes me think of the women in Toulouse-Lautrec.

But...where is the green?


Blogger birdkiddie said ... (7:14 AM) : 

I love her look. The hair is fantastic and the trousers on her hips... And that beautiful self confident expression in her face. She´s gorgeous and the photo aswell.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 AM) : 

LOVE THIS!! It's so simple but exactly on point. The hair, the jacket. She looks great!


Anonymous fashionholic said ... (7:46 AM) : 

amazing hair!!! what a cool woman!!


Anonymous lucas said ... (7:52 AM) : 

She must have stayed hours in the hairdresser to get this look. looks beautiful.


Anonymous Swedish girl said ... (8:03 AM) : 

WOW, she`s just fantastic!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (8:10 AM) : 

She looks amazing! That is a beautiful photo!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (8:16 AM) : 

Wow - so dramatic! She's fabulous!


Blogger Lucy said ... (8:18 AM) : 

now that is statement hair - and this is even greater because she's not 22 (when anyone can have crazy hair) - doing it when you're that bit older is more of a big deal

mind you, I always see a lot of 40 years plus ladies with very obviously dyed red hair in and around Paris


Blogger smallcitystyles said ... (8:34 AM) : 

I love the gray outfit. It perfectly accents her beautiful red hair. It is more than just hair. It is an accessory!


Anonymous Madamesnob said ... (8:40 AM) : 

That shade on hair...

Un sorriso,

Everything about this pic is so danged sexy I can't even handle it.

It's one for the book, Sart!


Blogger Christina said ... (8:47 AM) : 

breath taking!


Anonymous Ellen said ... (9:06 AM) : 

That's awesome. Her hair is incredible! Jealous!


Blogger Chloe said ... (9:14 AM) : 

I love this look so much. And that she's of rather indeterminate age. Hair so red is usually reserved for the young and reckless, but she pulls it off with class and aplomb. Nicely done!


Blogger simplyolive said ... (9:16 AM) : 

what a beauty!
and i love the jacket!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:24 AM) : 

Chasing the fall blues away with some red! Love her!


Blogger Heidi Lament said ... (9:31 AM) : 

Such an amazing contrast. That jacket is perfect.


Blogger Sonia Levesque said ... (9:31 AM) : 

A healthy dose of punk here...
I love it!

I think I have found my new haircut!

Amazing. A prime example of style through-and-through.

I like the subtle red stripes in her jacket... where's the green?


Blogger Paula said ... (9:54 AM) : 

I've never seen someone wearing red died hair like that, she makes it look very classy.


Blogger Nora said ... (10:33 AM) : 

oh my yes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:53 AM) : 



Blogger Sempre Libera said ... (11:05 AM) : 

Wow, that color! And it's in the jacket, too -- really gives the otherwise soft and cozy fabric some real fire. Well done.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:08 AM) : 

She looks like Bjork's cousin from NYC. Love Bjork, love this lady's look.


Blogger FREEBIE CITY said ... (11:10 AM) : 

i will be honest and say that i am ambivalent when it comes to extreme hair colour for working professionals (anna piaggi is a mighty exception). maybe due to such a close reference to youth or just adding a sense of freedom to admittedly, the very constrained professional world. then again, free it's one thing but when working in such an image driven environ, hair colour says alot. i've seen some awful dye jobs emerging from the best salons and it has cost people gigs.

however, her colour selection does work and well. it compliments her face, eyes and and personality. i wonder if she had it done over at christophe robin cute cute place.


Blogger Adam Osgood said ... (11:11 AM) : 

I love the variegation in her hair. Amazing!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I love EVERYTHING about her.


Blogger Emma said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Great shot! I love the contrast between her hair and her coat/the background.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

I love how the red hair brings out the red detail in the jacket.

I'm in love with her hair.

I just saw this woman- she is extraordinary looking.

now why can my hairstylist never get my hair some great color like that??

Beautiful shot Sart!


Blogger Iheartfashion said ... (12:19 PM) : 

WOW, she defines "flame-haired"!

Blogger Laguna Beach Trad said ... (12:25 PM) : 

This is a very autumnal photo, Scott. I love the red and grey contrast. David Bowie pops into my head when I look at this picture.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:32 PM) : 



Anonymous Adam said ... (12:39 PM) : 

Her hair is like fire! But a great match to the windowpane in her jacket. There's something about redheads that make the rest of their outfits so vibrant. (refer back to the Sept 22 pic of the woman on the BMX bike).
Amazing pics.

Love; Love the hair! It completes her :p

that jacket looks like an old a good way =)


Blogger Alexandra said ... (3:14 PM) : 

I love that hair. I cannot stop looking at it and feeling sad that I could never, ever pull off something like that.

Sooo beautiful!


Blogger Anne G. Sandberg said ... (3:16 PM) : 

That´s Monica. She is an norwegian designer. She makes the most fantastic folkloristic clothes!

She is just amazing! Surely the best accessory she has available. Adorable.


Blogger Sarah B. said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Diana beat me to it: it's another painting photo. Brilliant! I love the hair, it looks like flames.


Blogger Asian Models Blogger said ... (3:32 PM) : 

The hair color and skin tone go together very nicely. And I love the entire look on her. Totally confident and chic.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:00 PM) : 

This is an amazing woman...chic, classy and vibrant...I love the way that she contrasts the "jazz and drama" of her hair with a muted wardrobe. She doesn't overdo the drama...just enough to entice


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

I would love a series of this woman. Is she as spectacular in motion as in that photo?

The absolute BEST find yet of yours. She's amazing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 PM) : 

This is my favorite photo of yours Sart. Well done.

Stunning. Breathtaking. Surreal. Masterpiece!


Blogger Deja Pseu said ... (4:57 PM) : 

Incredible shot, Sart!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:18 PM) : 

i immediately thought of 'The Devil is a Woman' then couldn't remember if that is the title of a film, song or book? (help me someone!) her hair is fabulous and a work of art - reading some of the previous comments - anyone who can pull off dramatic hair color that successfully should be applauded and celebrated, not criticized and derided. her clothes are subtle under-statements, the way the shrunken wool jacket curls around her torso and arms. i would have loved to have seen her shoes or boots... Thanks for another treat, Sartorialist, you're the most interesting social commentator on the web.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:49 PM) : 

Sart, did you see this in Cathy Horyn's blog? Cool.

At Versace, which was last night, I saw Emmanuel Alt from Paris Vogue. It was our first chance to speak all week. I told her Scott Schuman had done a nice picture of her on his blog The Sartorialist, and that he had called her “the impossible Emmanuel Alt.”

“What does ‘impossible’ mean?” she asked.

“It means hard to beat,” I said.


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

The Devil is a Woman is a 1935 romance film by Josef von Sternberg, adapted from the 1898 novel La Femme et le pantin by Pierre Louÿs. The film was based on a screenplay by John Dos Passos, and stars Marlene_Dietrich. (wikipedia)

Sart! You must find her again and interview her. From comments we now know she's a designer named Monica from Ålesund, Norway.

Did she make that marvelous jacket? Where can we buy her clothes? Does she have a website where we can see more?

I love your shots and check here daily but never post... until now. Seriously, this is one hell of a shot. Brilliant!


Blogger Thomas said ... (11:18 PM) : 


Such a great shot. I would have never imagined a woman her age could pull off such a style.

Definitely my favorite photo I've seen on here


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (11:21 PM) : 

Such virve, confidence, texture, style. Stunning. How does one achieve those incredible highlights that are in her hair?

This just feels quintessential Paris to me - gorgeous woman, gorgeous hair, unbelieveably chic.

She's like a phoenix rising from the ashes of her clothes.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:20 AM) : 

I like they grey in her jacket,which looks a bit like it´s homemade .Looking closer-is she wearing extremely low waist slacks? The belt is awfully low.The color of her hair is artificial and so it is.A smile instead of a grin would be better.


Anonymous andrea said ... (9:20 AM) : 

I very much like the jacket. Also her attitude.


Anonymous Procrastinator said ... (9:26 AM) : 

yes yes yes. Sublime.

BUT WHERE CAN I FIND A JACKET LIKE THAT? Simple, strong, subtle, rich, relaxed... I am posessed.


Blogger Pumpkin Man said ... (10:33 AM) : 

Wow!!! That's awesome red hair!! She looks amazing with that hair color and very few people can pull that off. Attitude, baby!


Blogger FREEBIE CITY said ... (11:12 AM) : 


this sounds so silly but did you take this picture near beaux-arts? i think i sat next to her at rick owens' show.

i caught her --well just hair--in one of my photos. how odd.

if she isn't a headturner....
i would put her in a shoot for italian or french vogue,
even more so because she is a little more mature.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:43 PM) : 

I can't see this picture anything other than art with her red hair against the various shades and hues of grey / black.

A comment on style - what I find surprising is her flame red hair, which to me is a very feminine / dramatic touch to her look is supported or paired with a rather masculine jacket, with masculine dark colours.

A juxtaposition of hot and cold, woman and man, feminine and masculine.

This outclasses everything. In the world. Ever. It's the new Mona Lisa. It's done. We can pack up. Go home. It's a wrap. The pinnacle of an era. Centuries from now, when all designers and collections will be long forgotten, this image will live on and be revered by generation upon generation as one of the wonders of the world. If I had to choose something to send into space that would represent the very best of human civilization it would be this picture. If there were an oscar for fashion, this would win best picture, best performance and best costume design. I think I made my point.
