On the Street.... Outside Grand Palais, Paris

Comments on "On the Street.... Outside Grand Palais, Paris"


Blogger Dapper Kid said ... (8:15 AM) : 

That dress is beautiful, and the gladiators provide a nice contrast. Love how the wind makes the dress flow in the photograph!! I also really like the dress of the lady on the far right, although I'm not too keen on her shoes.


Anonymous Becks said ... (8:16 AM) : 

Love the dress with those shoes <3


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:18 AM) : 

love it - so so beautiful.

damn but you need a skinny little frame to pull those dresses off though don't you?

she looks amazing.


Blogger elsais said ... (8:26 AM) : 

Is this Irina Lazareanu?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:27 AM) : 

fantastic! the light, the movement, the colors, the composition. a beautiful photograph before one even focuses in on the clothes.


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

Wow! This is one of the best pictures you've taken recently!

I love those people in black smiling, the white gorgeous dress combined with the roman style sandals, the wind, the gesture, the woman in the short pink dress, the light. Life! Summer!


Blogger emily said ... (8:47 AM) : 

omg, i'm really impressed by this outfit and the perfect photograph!

Those are the most amazing gladiator sandals i have ever seen. Please tell me you asked her where she got them! Her dress is beautiful to.


Anonymous rachel said ... (9:08 AM) : 

so fun and pretty, makes me wish I was there instead of the rainy midwest today! my only sad comment is I wish more lovely clothes these days had pockets - at least a tiny hidden one somewhere - so we wouldn't have to see all of these ugly, clutched cell phones. somehow it ruins the magic of a fantastic shot like this - grounds the moment in reality when it could have been more dreamlike without the phone. :)


Anonymous amo_italia1114 said ... (9:20 AM) : 

what makes me smile about European women is their hair...there is no flat iron, curler, or hours worth of work put into perfecting every strand..they find beauty in the hair's natural state, normally leaving it flowing in the wind or tied up into an imperfect yet gorgeous ponytail...
besides that, i would love to own the floral dress and also the shoes of the woman in black


Blogger pika said ... (9:20 AM) : 

beautiful. the dress isn't too bad either.


Blogger The Happiest Activist said ... (10:00 AM) : 

There are too many chic Parisians in this's blinding! I love the loose tie around the man's neck.


Blogger Miguel said ... (10:01 AM) : 

Very ece photo... I like her dress, specially her sandals, very lovely sandals.


Blogger Supercalifashionista said ... (10:06 AM) : 

The gladiators with that flowing dress is truly breathtaking.


Blogger -h of candid cool said ... (10:07 AM) : 

great capture


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:21 AM) : 

the gladiators are actually a nice juxtaposition with the flowy dress. and the shoes of the woman in black behind her are fierce.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 AM) : 

Love the contrast between the dress and the gladiators :)
Is she Irina?


Anonymous lord sessa said ... (10:46 AM) : 

Who is this angel? Although the face is not shown,she projects an ethereal joy...And the shoes are fantastic.Same with the light,flowing dress.


Blogger Edward said ... (10:50 AM) : 

Even though Irina is the main focus, I love that everyone in the photo is equally stylish and it looks so nonchalant and effortless. Great job Sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:52 AM) : 

When I'm in Paris, I see people dressed as how I think people should dress. I mean everyday people in everday places: the streets, the parks, the metro--walking, on scooters, on bicycles. There is a uniformity there, which is conservative even, but I like that too in a way, because transgression is not so much an issue. Even plain clothes cops dress cool. I would love to see some of this on your blog. Workers, students ... there is a variety of people in Paris. Have you thought of going into the tenth or the eighteenth? I know your audience is very much interested in top down fashion. Still, there is more to show than just models at events. Show us a little of what people are wearing in Paris today. I'm sorry if this comes across as criticism. It's not really. I would just like to see your take on a wider variety of people.


Blogger K.B. said ... (11:13 AM) : 

Not hot on gladiator sandals in general (except on hot gladiators), but I like the fun, floaty dress. But really -- I'd like to see more of the little black dress just behind it. Such a teasing picture, half-blotting out something of interest!

So far, I'm not impressed with the outfits from Paris. I though they were ahead of us, but I'm not seeing it here. Gladiator shoes are getting pretty tired looking.


Anonymous Isa said ... (11:32 AM) : 

Love this photo ... the movements, the light, the people's smile !!
And the dress also !

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:59 PM) : 

They all look happy, yes...and the photo is lovely, of course...but doesn't the center girl look like she's in one seriously expensive nightie? And I wish, I wish, I wish those stupid gladiator sandals would go away already. They're like the Uggs of summer 2008!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:01 PM) : 

Is this Irina Lazareanu AND Leigh Lezark in the same photo? Fabulous.


Anonymous style slicker said ... (1:04 PM) : 

a beautiful full length floaty dress with gladiator shoes.........PERFECT!!!


Blogger Tea Lady said ... (1:05 PM) : 

You have to have long thin legs to pull off those gladiators! She does it beautifully. An amazing dress. I too love the dress on the far right. what a pretty girl. The shoes are wrong though.


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

very effortless and chic...another amazing photo sart. job well done


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:17 PM) : 

OK, the composition of this photograph is beautiful but I don't see even one sartorial statement in it to like. I really don't get it.

I love this photo!! I have nothing intelligent to say!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:00 PM) : 

Part of why I love the Sartorialist is the fashion mugshot format. There is a sense of exposure the subjects relinquish to Scott in that format. While this is a perfectly lovely picture, it doesn't grab at me like his typical photojournalist style.

amazing gladiators.
fantastic photograph.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:40 PM) : 

I simply can not get enough of this picture. The interplay between the people in it and their clothes, the gestures, the light, the perfect way the woman's face is framed by the raised arms. It's tremendously inspiring for so many reasons. Incredible, thank you!


Blogger nicolasonline said ... (4:09 PM) : 

Both dresses are beautiful, summery, fresh, and des robes très Parisiennes, they obviously are the focal points because of their play with light, wind, etc... But looking at this photograph, the man in black has the classic black elegant look which is thrown together and not "try-hard" to look cool... the way he's standing and position of his hands add such beauty to picture as a whole... just thought it was worth mentioning!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:19 PM) : 

Flower child dress plus gladiator sandals is a thrilling sweet/savory contrast. Very Penelope Tree. To see how contrast can fall flat, look to the baby doll dress/elf boots on the right. Most unfortunate.


Blogger J said ... (4:20 PM) : 

i love it. almost like a french-bohemian wedding!

I thought this was Irina Lazareanu too, although it's funny that I thought I could recognise someone without even really seeing their face! Still, is it?

Great shot. I'm not sure about the extremely high gladiators, but I think I could be won over.

the shoes are such a wonderful contrast to the dress

Great dress. But all I can think about is how thin she is :o

what a glorious photo. love the balance of the people in black on the left with the girls in flowy white and beige on the right. i'm also intrigued by the gentleman's clothing. what is he wearing around his neck? his jacket looks amazing.

I wish you saw groups of chic, interesting people like that every day. I mean, don't you want to be friends with them the second you see them? All so well dressed, so happy, so engrossed in each other. I'm so loving that pink flapper dress--it's even more fascinating than the floral in the center. And the guy's tie and his shoes are so unique!

This is an amazing photograph, on so many levels.

omg! love it, so beautiful. love how the wind has blown the fabric such that it allowed for a perfect shot of those sandals! wonderful. and the far edge of the dress looks torn... ?? even better! the whole shot just looks so "spontaneous".


Blogger lily said ... (4:45 AM) : 

The best accessory they all have is their amazing smile, and despite that sophistication and chic, the simplicity of being just a bunch of friends enjoying the moment and the sun..

It makes me feel good just to look at that lovely snapshot of life.

Thank you for that Sart.


Anonymous Samantha said ... (5:38 AM) : 

It does look like Irina Lazareanu! She looks gorgeous. I also love the girl in the tiered dress on the right. Cute.


Blogger helen said ... (6:03 AM) : 

love this photo really captures a moment, but i have to say the gladiator sandal is one of my least favourite of the current trends.i feel there is something so uneffortless about them and true style i feel should LOOK effortless even if it isn't. i agree also that the black booties don't work with the pink dress.

Gorgeous dress! Gladiator sandals are okay, not too crazy about them. The pinkish dress on the right is really nice too but yea the shoes really don't work. But a beautiful photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:34 PM) : 

Fantastic how her dress jumps out so you have no choice but to wake up and follow that movement. And then to catch the energy of the rest of the picture as well!

Pretty sure it's not Leigh Lezark in the background though.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:44 PM) : 

That's Peter Oquendo on the right, he manages the Dior Homme in LA and used to work at the New York Store. He's like a big teddy bear. And I think Leigh Lezark is framed by Irina's hands? Cackling like a maniac!
