This woman is so beautifully dressed. well done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:57 AM) : 

Such a great look. I love the sharp V that hits exactly at her natural waist, and then the slight flare of the blazer at the hips. It's very flattering while at the same time being interesting and even trend-conscious (the wide legs, the masculine cuts). I've seen a lot of similar ensembles that weren't as effective because they didn't take into account what cuts would and wouldn't be flattering. Of course, it helps that she has a great figure, but still--this woman is the antithesis of a fashion victim; she just makes it all work so well for her.


Blogger pretty kitty publishing said ... (12:58 AM) : 

For some reason, this look reminds me of the model Lauren Hutton.

Is this a vintage look, or a vintage-like look?

The color combinations are subtle. The peeptoe shoes are classy, too.


Blogger On Your Left said ... (1:01 AM) : 

Love love love it. So effortlessly chic. That blazer completely makes the outfit.


Blogger cassaundra said ... (1:26 AM) : 

how very sexy & chic.

i love these two colors together.
i don't think you would get the same affect with black and white.
on such a beautiful day in paris, it works.

sart, you always capture someone in the perfect setting.
this is a favorite.


Blogger Prêt-à-Porter P said ... (2:23 AM) : 

yes very chic


Blogger citizen said ... (2:48 AM) : 

Classy. I like how the jacket is fairly long but seems to fit her shoulders.


Blogger cbkphotos said ... (2:52 AM) : 

i love the wide pants with the cropped sleeve jacket!!
just a modern twist on a classic look

love those sleeves.


Blogger Rambling Hal said ... (3:17 AM) : 

Wow I absolutely love this. LOVE IT.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:02 AM) : 

Makes me think of Giorgio Armani. Very beautiful. Very nice shot.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:43 AM) : 

perfect example of wearing an oversize-like blazer when you're not 1,70m tall.


Anonymous Carlo said ... (4:55 AM) : 

I definitely agree with everything that has been said here so far. I especially like the rolled up sleeves, which give this sophisticated look a "practical" appearance - I can very well picture her doing a good job (if that is not overly interpreted!?)

Also very much like the setting of the pic. This massive greenish Door as a background with the colors and pattern (!) she is wearing >> great!

one of my favorites!

Thank you


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:26 AM) : 

love how she just folded up the sleeves of her jacket.. dont usually like matchy-matchy tops and pants but this is well done


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

Effortless. You just can't buy style!


Blogger Klokka said ... (6:11 AM) : 

beside the point (being the grace and beauty of the lady and her outfit), but i do love the doors behind her..


Anonymous Amelimelo said ... (6:13 AM) : 

Chicissime as we would say in French


Blogger Gabriela said ... (6:29 AM) : 

This is a great outfit and greatly worn. It is as simple and casual as some of the men’s wear that I admire, but it still has a very feminine touch. The jacket is beautiful, very subtle, great cut and very special grey-pearl-beige-pale pink color; she did a very nice thing with her sleeves. Her hair looks very nice, also very well cut; I just hope she won’t use that black thing in her wrist to tie her hair in a pony tail later. I wish I could see the shoes, they must be pretty. And last, but not least, the door in the background is gorgeous!


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

This is so painfully good, I can't believe I let myself get so old and fat! I have NO chance of recreating it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 AM) : 

Really chic. very Style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 AM) : 

the tailoring of this blazer is fabulous.. the way it hangs off her body, slightly oversized, boyfriend and sleeves rolled up = epitome of chic, in addition the colour is so subtle.


Blogger SageVanity said ... (6:55 AM) : 

i love this outfit!


Anonymous Addy said ... (7:17 AM) : 

It's a very chic look. Tres Parisienne.
A hint of 80s but softer... well done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:07 AM) : 

The pushed up sleeves... the vest... the slightly popped-collar... TOO 80s. I'm not liking this one.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:08 AM) : 

sooooo 80s :(


Blogger odilean said ... (8:15 AM) : 

linen and denim always look wonderful together. this combination is a little unexpected--the sparkly denim with just a beige oversized blazer. it is wonderful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:16 AM) : 

Interesting. 80's-style blazer (unstructured, no lapel, sleeves rolled up) and 70's pantsuit-style trousers. It works. Retro chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:20 AM) : 

She saunters to the swing
Whisping through the windows
Her slacks slip-slop on
Vee-toed sandals, Elegance she is
She is elegant, elle-eg-ant

Now we're talkin! So well dressed it looks effortless yet chic. So Moi's style.


Anonymous kim said ... (8:34 AM) : 

Love this. Casual chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:36 AM) : 

Most important of all...her elegance, she is really a lady!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

What a stunning woman!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (9:11 AM) : 

I agree, very very chic!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (9:47 AM) : 

That jacket is superb. Love the soft folds of the material and its slightly masculine/minimal look. Beautiful.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:50 AM) : 

now that's what i call a peep-toe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 AM) : 

I think it needs a piece of jewelry or a bag. It seems a bit two-dimensional and flat to me.


Blogger landis smithers said ... (9:59 AM) : 

i just want to see her in motion.

that outfit is all about movement.


Blogger trapiello said ... (10:23 AM) : 

It´s great!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 AM) : 

I agreee with Pretty Kitty; the jacket has that worn-in softness that vintage pieces sometimes have. In my view, that's the main advantage of buying quality. A well-made garment ages better. Love the pictures and the peep toes!

Blogger cad-a-rama said ... (10:39 AM) : 

I find this a bit dull.
She looks like an elegant flight attendant. Bring back the pink and orange!


Blogger La Terpette said ... (10:39 AM) : 

Love this outfit! All she's missing is a cloche hat and a long cigarette holder and she'd be right out of a vintage poster.


Blogger Miss Coryn said ... (11:18 AM) : 

Very beautiful. I admire this ensemble very much.


Blogger suzannemarques said ... (11:47 AM) : 

i'm digging the masculine look with the pants & jacket. someone said lauren hutton.. i thought katharine hepburn


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 AM) : 



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

High waisted pant with vest and blazer? Nice. Even the peep toes work well here.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:18 PM) : 

I dont even know where to begin. Absolutely flawless. The hair, the cut, colors, shoes, fabric, texture, its all here and it look completely effortless.


Anonymous sat said ... (12:29 PM) : 

yep, very classy cut.

but where are the india pics? :)

Cute toes!

Love the pants and V neck!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:02 PM) : 

Very nice except for the spot on her lapel.


Anonymous lei said ... (1:11 PM) : 

beautiful line- punctuated by the subtle release in the peep toe.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

My mom wore this back in the 80's.

It takes standing outside L'Eclaireur waiting for about 10 minutes, et voila, there's your shot.
You're still the man, but this ones to easy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:29 PM) : 

Wonder how many years that woman spent at the Bianca Jagger Academy of Transcontinental Chicness?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:27 PM) : 

My computer screen is a bit fuzzy today but I'm loving the texture mix with the pants and the vest (is it a vest?) as well as the jacket. Also love the peep toe shoes with the masculine clothes and the very deep neckline- she still looks very feminine and elegant.


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

I don't get it. Why all the compliments?

I'm seeing Ann Taylor work-a-day clothes from the 90's. What exactly is she wearing—some kind of vest-like jumpsuit? Mmmmmmm… very chic.

Also, no one else thinks the plunging leotard neckline over a breastless chest is a poor choice?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

Got FM today. Morris Day and Prince? What a surprise - great profile!

You're right...c'est la classe!


Anonymous John said ... (5:49 PM) : 

modern and fantastic though there are slight 80s references that i love with the rolled up sleeves and shoulder pads. excellent look.

effortless and the suit? vest and pants anyway are divine!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:13 PM) : 

Those pants make her legs look really long.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:31 PM) : 

Classy, cool, non-trendy. C'est parfait!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:04 PM) : 




Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:06 PM) : 

It is amazing that none of those individual pieces are particularly exciting, but together they make such harmony. This look is what I call timeless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:33 PM) : 

Something about that tiny peek of toe is incredibly erotic.

I like that she wears little makeup to carry on that sense of cleanness, minimal lines, etc.


Blogger thesearchforchic said ... (8:39 PM) : 

Perfection. But what is that BAND on her hand I keept seeing all the time in Paris??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:14 PM) : 

clean lines and a great silhouette. the geometrical detail near the waist adds just the right dose of interest and the blazer is a perfect complement to the whole outfit - 100% chic!


Blogger Liz said ... (9:30 PM) :
She looks so natural and elegant.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:36 PM) : 

Oh wow, this is one of my favorite photos I've seen her. I absolutely adore this. Her clothes are so reminiscent of Marlene Dietrich, but with a very modern twisty. Pure class.


Blogger T said ... (10:58 PM) : 

i like the texture of the suit. i also like how comfortable, yet chic, she looks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:08 AM) : 

thanks for posting this. i remember seeing this on and was hoping you'd post it here! the whole look--clothes, hair, pose, and all--is absolutely flawless.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:01 AM) : 

soo chic and yet so easy. this is what i call effortless elegance


Blogger flying-cat said ... (8:20 AM) : 

Interesting texture contrasts - two different textures of blue, shiny jacket against matte suit. Something you don't always think about.


Blogger clarisse said ... (9:07 AM) : 

may i ask who she is?

from the neck up she looks like a 50s chinese pin up. (she reminds me of my mom, really) and i really like the jacket.

to whoever talked about the plunging leotard neckline, it's pretty clear it'd only work if she had no chest. i love her!


Blogger The Market said ... (11:05 AM) : 

great look.


Blogger meemo said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Amazing. I love everything about this outfit.


Blogger Ellen´L said ... (4:27 PM) : 

Very serene and elegant!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:38 PM) : 

The single break on the trousers are perfect.


Blogger lorrwill said ... (12:39 AM) : 

I am so addicted to color combinations like this right now. I love the fluid-unstructured line done perfectly here. Everything fits proportionally. A very, very nice balancing act indeed.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:25 PM) : 

Oh so CHIC mademoissele!!! I LUV Oversized long blazer, where can I get one in the US? Other than Topshop and shipping cost is US$20...ouchh... Her blazer looks like the one model Irina was wearing with her thigh high boots. Very YSL !!!


Blogger discothequechic said ... (10:22 PM) : 

oh the shapes!
the tailoring of the trousers and the fantastic blazer; very YSL.


Blogger jana said ... (9:11 AM) : 

this is ne of the reasons why i keep coming to your blog. the pics like this - they look beautiful but are from this world...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:02 AM) : 

i loove this.. the fit of the trousers are great.


Blogger just anotheR said ... (4:23 PM) : 

notice how she's not wearing any accessories! not even a watch! i'm amazed. i can't help but echo that "YSL" sentiment. the le smoking was made for a woman like this!

Hum ... So elegant lady



Blogger AnastasiaC said ... (4:57 PM) : 

how did I miss this?? she's stunning...reminds me of Armani in the 90's but without the harsh hairstyles the models sport...this girl is soft and very feminine!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:58 AM) : 

WOW!!! This reminds me of Greta Garbo for some reason.


Blogger A Vintage Blog said ... (8:51 AM) : 

this is just perfect.


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

Total effortless chic: think Armani, intellectual, feminist, and a drop of working mother. Are the blue pants and top a one-piece? Love how she is showing a bit of skin with the top, but is otherwise concealer. The peeptoes make the look more feminine. The hair looks almost Hepburn inspired, and the tan with the blue compliments her lovely hair and skin.


Blogger Melissa said ... (3:09 AM) : 

perfection!! the look exudes masculinity from the slouchy jacket and pants but offset with the low cut top makes it such a sexy look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:27 PM) : 

Such a refreshing departure from those long-haired blinged-up Asian beauties! This is a lady who uses subtlety to the greatest advantage. Her hair is also inspiring.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:14 PM) : 

The comments, and I've read every one, are enlightening. I lodge #100 because, inter alia, the lady deserves to attain the coveted "Sart Century Mark." (100 or more comments - I just coined this with Sart's acquiessence).

The clothing flows like a light breeze: not over-bearing, but felt and appreciated. Dress the way you want to be treated: she will be treated very well.


Blogger Mylinh said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Tres chic. Great pants, fantastic length. I like the way she rolls up her sleeves too. Is the lady of Vietnamese heritage? She looks like she might be Vietnamese. And the blue colour of her pants could be what some have referred to as either Chairman Mao Blue. Although I can't be sure.


Blogger charlotte74 said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Utterly stylish - the beige and black are so elegant, and love the lenth of the jacket. That plus the wide trousers make it so louchely cool. I do think it needs really fantastic quality tailoring to work.


Blogger Days In the Shade said ... (10:42 AM) : 

This look is intelligent. I love how comfortable it looks. This woman could go anywhere and do anything in this. But I wonder, can curvy girls pull a look like this off?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:12 AM) : 

At first I couldn't decide if I liked her outfit. But she looks comfortable in her clothes (her body language says it), and people don't dress like this anymore, so her individuality shows through, and she is a Yes. Nice setting, too.


Blogger la femme said ... (12:26 AM) : 

very extreme chic... especially in front of those beautiful doors.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:10 PM) : 

beige is not flattering next to her skintone.

Make this jacket a fab red, and lipstick of the same shade, and this would be a beautiful stylish woman.


Blogger ValeriaVine said ... (8:01 AM) : 

You have managed to capture her stillness. Very beautiful.
