What's the name of that Indian henna tattoo on her hand?


Blogger Steve said ... (8:50 AM) : 

Love her hair with the red hue, matching glasses.
She looks great in black, ... how can you go wrong with such a gorgeous model


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

I want that hair cut; it looks so good in summer.
Black is classic.

I want to look like THAT this summer!! :-) Tarynn


Blogger Dan said ... (9:47 AM) : 

This is a nice slihouette but the matching button-strap detail (what is that called?) gathering both the sleeves AND the shorts is too cute-not in a good way. It almost gives a childish look to the outfit- like she's wearing a playsuit or something (which I guess she is, in a way). I'd say one or the other would be preferable to the "matching set". While I've seen this detail on sleeves many times I don't think I've ever seen it on shorts. I like it on these- not as bulky as the sleeve treatment.


Blogger Mike and Vic: LDRS of the CHI said ... (10:14 AM) : 

this is so simple....III love it!!! the henna tattoo adda a really childish element to a beautiful adult look. very cool.

Love the hair, glasss, and outfit. However the body is frightening. She needs curves.


Blogger JB said ... (10:33 AM) : 

What's her number...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:47 AM) : 

Love it! Love it! Love it! She looks so sexy, yet sophisticated!


Blogger Han said ... (11:06 AM) : 

Niceee! Love her sunglasses.

When I first saw her hand, I thought that it was veiny and disgusting, but then I took a closer look and it was actually a nice henna! haha.


Blogger bakingwithplath said ... (11:18 AM) : 

She looks so gorgeous in her simplicity.


Anonymous puffin said ... (11:31 AM) : 

The henna tattoos are called "mehendi"-- pronounced
'me' (as in "many"), 'hen' (like the bird), dee (with a soft 'd.')


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:39 AM) : 

I love the look, esp. in LA, but I hope she's just really young and not too, too thin from dieting. Maybe it's just the way she's standing. Ach, LA freaks me out. Anyway, she's gorgeous and has a lot of style.


Anonymous kagitsune said ... (11:51 AM) : 

I love how her henna tatoos really enhance an otherwise super-simple outfit. Just really completes it. :3


Anonymous amanda said ... (12:02 PM) : 

nice hair...!
really nice hair cut and colour...


Blogger ricola said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Quelle belle fille. Beautiful hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:30 PM) : 

Her healthy haor really makes this great. Not fan of fringes but I love hers.


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

Being an avid reader of your blog, and being a young 20-something in LA, I'm stoked that you finally posted a few pictures from LA recently.


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

Love her look, love her attitude. she looks like New York in LA.


Anonymous C.Goodbeard said ... (1:33 PM) : 

Is that the same girl that posed with Superman on Hollywood Blvd a while back??

I heart her.


Blogger J. said ... (1:53 PM) : 

So very sexy. She looks effortless. I love her jewelry and henna tattoos. They go so perfectly with the outfit.


Blogger cami falcão said ... (2:20 PM) : 

anything would look good on her, she has attitude. love skinny girls like that, very pretty.


Anonymous mimi said ... (3:35 PM) : 

**would have loved to see the hair pulled back off her face.
hate that she bites her nails (or used to)-love the way the shirt opens in the front **


Blogger TheShoeGirl said ... (3:39 PM) : 

Love her.
Summer, please don't go away!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:10 PM) : 

She looks gorgeous, and I agree that her hair is just outstanding. Regarding the sort of playsuit look to her outfit that someone commented on...she's at the pool! I think it especially goes well there. Perhaps if she were out to eat or something it might look a bit off (but maybe not).

Although LA as a city isn't my favorite, this shot is refreshing over the usual city shots in that there are sunny skies and and you can tell she's outside! Just lovely.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:09 PM) : 

Now are those tattoos just for fun or did she just attend an Indian Wedding?



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:29 PM) : 

she looks like a girl from New York visiting LA, who has great clothes but not in the way of LA style. it looks great


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:52 PM) : 

i loooove this look. it's so fresh and slightly edgy. :)


Blogger B. FLY AND THE CITY said ... (6:09 PM) : 



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:09 PM) : 

her henna tatoo and fringy haircut makes the look. i really like the sleeves, but i think black is too severe for the sunny poolside. if that were an all white outfit, it'd be perfect. black makes her look uncomfortably hot.


Anonymous Pierre-Jean said ... (6:20 PM) : 

Wonderful, like a picture of Slim Aarons. Goodbye


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:23 PM) : 

superb photo and outfit. This girl exemplifies the LA vibe...fashionable, laid back and confident. It's so funny to hear New Yorkers putting LA down. Ahhh, jealous of the sunny skies and laid back attitude. It's ok. We still love you. p.s. here's a time you visit LA, explore more than just Beverly Hills and Hollywood Blvd. and you will get the real LA experience.. cheers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:15 PM) : 

She looks great. Her outfit is so simple chic and it fits her small frame so well. The glasses fit her face really well and the hair is to die for!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:28 PM) : 

People need to expand their thinking about LA fashion! What most people see are people from Hollywood and the Westside tanorexics ... the eastside of LA - Silverlake, Loz Feliz,Eagle Rock, Echo Park - is where you'll see a more eclectic style


Blogger reddog said ... (7:44 PM) : 

my wife is going to love this site. she is studying fashion right now.


Cyber Monday


Anonymous Lauren Irene said ... (9:16 PM) : 

I'd say she looks super-LA. The only part that might make her look more NY style (but not myself) would be that she's wearing all black maybe. But I think the black looks especially good with her shade of hair.


Blogger dez.fair said ... (9:29 PM) : 

her bangs are super heavy, she's really cute


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:40 PM) : 

does anyone know the maker of that romper??

i really think it's one of the best i've seen this year..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:35 PM) : 

Wow! does anyone know who makes those glasses?


Blogger Joleen said ... (12:00 AM) : 

this really reminded me of chanel somehow, but otherwise very pretty look and i love the hair!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:08 AM) : 

she is a local l.a singer /scenester

i think she is a real beauty. it's really hard to distinguish l.a or ny look anymore. everyone looks similar which is good for L.A


Blogger Just an Observation said ... (12:09 AM) : 

very filmesque photo ....kind like Quentin T. movie character.

love it


p.s. have a good vacation

CC Sheffield is one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen, she could make any outfit look desirable.


Blogger OndrejS said ... (3:22 AM) : 

Very sexy, great look. I so wish summer would stay longer this year... I know skiing is great and all... but you only see girls like this in summer. At least in our hemisphere...


Anonymous Pierre-Jean said ... (3:56 AM) : 

Great, like a pictures of Slim Aarons.Goodbye


Blogger Grégoire said ... (6:09 AM) : 

The picture looks like a HedKandi CD cover! Simple but perfect and sophisticated!


Blogger Gabriela said ... (6:13 AM) : 

She looks like a taller and brunette Scarlett Johanson!


Blogger The Man Who Knew Too Much said ... (6:47 AM) : 

Wow, she looks stunning. Simplicity is key (especially in the summer).

great hear and tatoos!


Blogger cassaundra said ... (10:47 AM) : 

i quite like this look.

her tatted hands are a nice touch, too.

Isn't that C.C. Sheffield?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:22 AM) : 

Hey Sartorialists!
Is this the same girl posted sitting with spiderman not so long ago? The two girls looks super similar and kinda have the same henna tattoo thing happening.. any way both are amazing!
Woo I'm hesh!


Blogger S said ... (11:28 AM) : 

Perfect, sophisticated, young, cool. She's awesome, and I love how you photographed her all-dark look against the amazing pool jewel blue. Fantastic!


Anonymous jessica said ... (1:28 PM) : 

i love the henna with the hipster-y look.
i can't wait to be in la in a few months for a long weekend!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:30 PM) : 

Aside from the cute hair...

Am I missing something??


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:36 PM) : 

Its funny that people keep saying she looks New York. Why, because she is wearing black?? The skimpy shorts, the perfect trendy hair, huge shades extreme skinnyness, the henna, the super blue pool with the palm trees.... she could not be more LA. The shot looks like a cover of LA magazine. But it looks good on her.


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

what a great look, not to mention black is one of my favorites for chicness ;)

'designing your life'


Anonymous Julian from LA said ... (6:59 PM) : 

pretty much anytime it's the summer, LA runs as fashion king, and in the winter, fall, and spring, the award goes to NYC, but this girl looks 100% LA, which is a FANTASTIC city for fashion, but if you don't know the cityscape, you'll never know where to find it.

LA is a city where people avoid being in public, but crave attention. The hottest people with the greatest clothes are in secret clubs and behind tinted windows, but every once in a while one of the elite slip into the public eye and haute coutour is revealed.


Blogger Maggie May said ... (9:12 PM) : 

i love how she is knock out gorgeous and has cellulite.

her hair is the whole deal.


Anonymous jef said ... (10:46 PM) : 

Damn, that's real hot! And the pool's nice too!


Blogger Angie said ... (11:30 PM) : 

Beautiful, but I have to disagree about the hair being a great summer look. I've had bangs in the summer. Not fun at all. It looks ridiculous wet and even worse windblown from a convertible. Not to mention the sweaty forehead. But, it looks stunning on her of course.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:15 AM) : 

Wow, I just looked her music up based on another's comment. It's really good, really. Lovely girl and that's hair tdf!


Blogger thwany said ... (1:44 AM) : 

love the hair


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:24 AM) : 

she makes me want a fringe! amazing shot.


Blogger JohnQSmith said ... (3:36 AM) : 

I think this is the silk romper from Armani Exchange... If not, A|X has something very similar.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:48 PM) : 

A few people have said "go outside of Hollywood"-- forgetting or not realizing in the first place that the crowd at the Roosevelt poolside is filled with Silverlake/Echo Park/Downtowners...many of whom sport as indie an LA style as you will come by. CC lives in Echo Park. Cheers!


Blogger comtedamour said ... (2:42 PM) : 

tell me why one would wear black by the pool...great way to get hot. and the outfit and glasses look very 80's to me. sorry...


Anonymous Jenn said ... (4:19 PM) : 

I love this look! Her hair, sunglasses, everything looks great. Her bangs are perfect.


Blogger Miguel said ... (7:26 PM) : 

So lovely. She looks just like my girl who's just started college. Really nice.


Blogger Yarnhog said ... (7:39 PM) : 

Blast from the past. I think I had that same outfit as a teenager--circa 1984. Love the henna tattoos!


Blogger peter said ... (9:54 PM) : 

looks like a good southern baptist

fly her to london


Blogger Jesse said ... (5:17 AM) : 

It seems to me that she is not trying to say anything.

And it is that thing exactly, that make her look as lovely as ever.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:11 AM) : 

This is one of the most beautiful pictures i have ever seen.
She's like a silhouette,
the way her outfit contrasts with the background is mesmerizing.

This must have been the one Jim Morrison was singing about.


Blogger Melissa said ... (2:26 PM) : 

I can't stop staring at this photo! Everything about it. The body makes the outfit. Her butt makes the outfit! I want to look like this outside everyday!


Blogger miss shoo said ... (9:18 PM) : 

She embodies summer!

Indian Henna Tattoo: "Mehendi"

Nice picture! Love the contrast of the blue of the pool and the black of the outfit. Nice sunlight.


Blogger Vintage and Stardust said ... (9:21 AM) : 

Love this look -soo cool! She looks like a girl who could say: " baby, your're too sweet for rock n' roll..."


Blogger Missy's Got Fighting Blood said ... (10:55 AM) : 

I'm mad because I'm gonna go outside today and NOT look like this.

I'd love going to work, even at a sucky job, if I had her style, look, hair!


Blogger Maegan said ... (2:30 PM) : 

hot! great colors too.

Her name is Fahrani, she's a model from Indonesia.

Ooh! I love henna! She must have stood out wearing black by the pool.. Love her fringe and sunglasses


Blogger Minniti said ... (5:29 PM) : 

i think the romper is Daryl K from last spring season. she's hot, period.

Very LA summer chic.

sorry if im wrong coz she looked like her a lot

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:42 PM) : 

This girl does not look new york at all. this is very l.a. you cant say angelenos have no style because every neighborhood has its own personality and many designers are inspired by our natural laid-back casual chic look.The city of beautiful people. PERIOD:)

I'd marry her.

Blogger Julie K said ... (5:46 PM) : 

Arizona, not Indonesia.

She's an actress/party promoter originally from Arizona. Cool as can be, actress and party promoter called CeCee Sheffield, did some hosting work for Nylon mag online and was in an LA band tho not sure if that's still the case. She is/was also a cobrasnake favorite.

Imdb her


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 PM) : 

She reminds me of Isabelle Adjani, only with lighter hair. I normally don't like the idea of wearing black in summer, but this works.

hi im c.c. sheffield just saw this and read the comments. um im not fahrani, no i met the satorialist from my friend karina she said met her friend from nyc and bring some clothes at the roosevelt pool. he was nice didnt know about his site until i took a look afterward. i was also in he spidey pic and everyone kept talking about my brusied shins. sartorialist you are an amazing photographer, can you send some pics of me and karina? xo cc


Blogger samuel.b.parker said ... (4:15 AM) : 

LA hiptser but i dig it


Anonymous angelinadefelice said ... (1:39 PM) : 

i'm confused by c.c.'s comments...i always imagined the sartorialist's photos to be rather "happy accident". I believed he wandered the fashionable streets of the world & happened upon the beautiful people with fabulous style & shot them then & there... why did karina ask cc to "bring" outfits & meet her at the pool? was this a photo shoot of the traditional variety or an impromptu session? i'm such a fan of this bog...please tell me my initial assumptions were correct!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (9:33 AM) : 

that photo was shot specifically for GQ to give the feel of LA but the rest are "found images"
