I love and hate everything about her. She would be in front of me a the icecream stall. She would be walking ahead in the dusk on the pier with her sister in law. She would be putting the beach bags in the back of the car at the end of the day and take so long to leave the car park. She would have the best night at a seafood restaurant with all of the family. She sould not get up until 10 am and I would see her putting the milk bottles out when I came back with pain au chocolats and nectarines.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:59 AM) : 

She is perfect to me -- perfect amount of makeup, color, accessories, freckles, eyebrows, pale fingernails. This is a look from which everyone could learn and take a piece!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:00 AM) : 

"refreshing" look too


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:03 AM) : 

Lovely! Poster-vintage-nautica-very cheerful.


Blogger maggieescargot said ... (7:10 AM) : 

i love the head scarf. it looks great on her blonde hair!
the bangles give the outfit a very very good touch. shame we couldn't see the red of her and the background.

i would personally pass the stripey black and white top.

haven't been here in a while. things are lookin' fine mr satorialist! :D
see you in another 2-3 days/week.

loving the ocean in the background of these shots.


Blogger Rice and Beans Vintage said ... (7:33 AM) : 

Oh my gosh, she is amazing! What classic beauty and a pure wonderful smile. Great photo, completely refreshing.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:59 AM) : 

Great picture! Like the outfit, especially the way the trousers button up, and her use of multicolor bracelets and the scarf to finish up what would otherwise be a predictable color selection. Love the pose also- very pin-up and fun. Hope you are having a wonderful visit, even though you are working. Jorge from West Palm Beach

Very female. Love red lips

So fresh, sassy and at ease.


Blogger cat minoki said ... (8:15 AM) : 

Beautiful woman, great expression,
but I ´ve come to the conclusion that
this year I am not into stripes.

refreshing look.

Comme elle est belle!

So French!!!


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

what a beauty.


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

A glowing beauty, dressed for summer! Every detail is charming. Subtle nails and makeup, dazzling smile, arty jewelry, pulled back hair--this a great way way to liven up the classic top.

I would love to see the length of these pants. Cropped with sandals? Long and wide with heels?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:13 AM) : 

love it, love it. esp the stripey top with the print of the scarf on her head; she makes it interesting but still keeps it clean. i wish i could see more of the bottoms -- pants? shorts?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:15 AM) : 

i love how the sun is caressing her cheek, her beautiful smile and
timeless style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:17 AM) : 

She looks so fresh and all ready for the summer. I wish you had a full length photo. I would love to see the pants that she's wearing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:23 AM) : 

this is maybe the best pic ever on the blog. the reason- her unabashed beautiful pose. "I"m lovely!" she says. "And I love it!" No pretending to be shy or cutesy little girl stances. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy for this woman. I wish we all felt like her!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:25 AM) : 

She looks really natural! It's not about her clothes, it's about her, she's fresh and natural with a big smile!! I like it!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:27 AM) : 

So cool, this woman could have been a model for Matisse- the Femmes Antillaises series--

And very South of France: the stripes, the Fitzgerald era high waisted pants and the Provencal/African head wrap, the perfect skin! Very inspiring Scott, merci!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 AM) : 

So fresh, so vibrant, so stunning! Love the head scarf and jewelry!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Nice top and pendant. But shouldn't she use a rather large pendant?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 AM) : 

The picture of the woman just makes me think of holiday. Very cute outfit on a very cute woman : )


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:59 AM) : 

Postcard perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:00 AM) : 

She's beautiful! I love the printed scarf with the striped top, as well as the chunky ring and bracelets with the delicate necklace. Great lipstick color, too.


Blogger Unknown said ... (10:29 AM) : 

The lipstick...gahh love the lipstick.


Blogger l u c y. said ... (10:30 AM) : 

So chic!
Her skin is so lovely and I heart her bracelets.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

i haven't any sartorial comment regarding this ensemble. but,killer smile! happiness and the beach -what more is needed.


Blogger Gratistotal said ... (10:40 AM) : 

Its the first summer look


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

Gretchen looks beautiful. So Coco Chanel at Deauville!


Blogger miznyc said ... (10:50 AM) : 

I love everything about this shot - the composition, her stance, her smile, her red lipstick, her accessories but I *covet* that ring!


Blogger Carolina Lange said ... (10:53 AM) : 

Beautiful smile!


Blogger Cheryl Houston said ... (11:06 AM) : 

She is stunningly beautiful! Love the scarf in the hair, the natural makeup, her jewelry! I wish I were there!


Blogger LOVE AESTHETICS said ... (11:10 AM) : 

Im liking that the black stripes are thicker than the white ones, im very into striped shirts atm, and trying to find as much different kinds as possible, there are more kinds of black white stripes than I initially imagined

Joie de vivre radiating off the screen! :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:29 AM) : 

Adorable! This is so timeless & classic it could be a snapshot of my Grandma at the shore or yesterday. Love it!!!


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

She's much more than a breath of fresh air. She's a moist tropical storm of deliciousness. Will you look at those freckles, please? I'm in love.


Blogger Luiza Sauma said ... (11:32 AM) : 

lovely shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:50 AM) : 

i like that everything about her is simple - hair color, make up, and her light & neutral nail polish.
i don't think this look would be the same without the lipstick, her tan, her jewelry, and that smile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:53 AM) : 

Beautiful photo! Love the vibrant lips, headscarf and bangles...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:56 AM) : 

Wonderful! She's got a fresh, modern take on a 50's movie star thing going on. I wish I could see how she's knotted the scarf around her head - I've tried this many times times but can't quite get the knot right.


Blogger okso said ... (12:00 PM) : 

she could be a peasant from the 16th century in such a contemporary way. beautiful, all of her, the stance, the lighting, her accessories, her smile, so earthy.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:06 PM) : 

aww, she's beautiful. i love it. she looks like something out of a picturesque seaside postcard.


Blogger LittleMexicanGirl said ... (12:10 PM) : 

ooooh! She looks gorgeous! the waist band of her pants (were they pants??) and her head scarf look 1940-ish


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

che bel sorriso! What a smile!


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

this photo makes me smile. she looks comfortable in her skin. love the bright colours in her scarf, ring and lipstick.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:23 PM) : 

she's so naturally beautiful


Blogger Hillary said ... (12:33 PM) : 

This photograph fulfills a little hole in me where beauty and happiness and the feeling of being fully alive reside. I can't tell where the beauty of the photograph ends and the beauty of the subject begins.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:34 PM) : 

Iconic image - looking at her in her trim striped shirt, print scarf like a blossom over her ear, the jewelry, sailor fly - and the sheer adorableness of her pose - I feel happy just to look at her. Her look is simple, personal and witty. Wow!


Blogger Cassaundra said ... (12:38 PM) : 

what a beautiful girl!

she looks so lovely posed up in stripes by the sea.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:42 PM) :

gorgeous photo, gorgeous girl. sart you make my day.

thank you


Blogger Sharona said ... (1:39 PM) : 

Well, she's just beautiful. And her accessories bring a great, bohemian kind of feel to her "sail away" top and pants. Brilliant! And she's beautiful.


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

This shot is GENIUS! You have truly mastered your craft. Well done, my friend--may you continue to inspire us all.


Blogger Keli Lissolo said ... (1:51 PM) : 

The shirt, pants and red lips evoke a timeless and classy look while her scarf, ring, and bracelets add a bit of hippie fun. It is the confident smile and carefree pose that bring the two styles together beautifully.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:55 PM) : 

i´m speachless. shes just gorgeous!


Blogger Angie said ... (1:57 PM) : 

For those of you who sew (or who have someone to sew for you), HotPatterns has a pants pattern with exactly this front waist detailing. No affiliation, just a happy customer who hopes to make these pants next month!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:02 PM) : 

Perfect shot! Perfect ring. Perfect combination of bracelets. Her lipstick. Her beach-ready look. She's absolutely glowing like no one else I have ever seen on this site. Well done!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

I'd love to see a full length of this... those look like great pants. I've been thinking a lot about the black and white striped shirt lately. Gorgeous. Wish I was there!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:23 PM) : 

So lovely. I had exactly the same shirt about 20 years ago.


Blogger Jamie Welsh Watson said ... (2:35 PM) : 

Oh so beautiful and sexy! Love the sea as a backdrop too. Reminds me of Marilyn Monroe and Gwen Stefani from her "Cool" video.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:46 PM) : 

Scott evokes Scott...Fitzgerald, that is. Gretchen would fit right in to the Riviera of the 1920s. A great shot of a classy lady. Cheers.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:10 PM) : 

wow! it reminds me of Gauguin - don't really know why :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:10 PM) : 

Body Language. Her pose says such positive things about her attitude.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:23 PM) : 

wow..she's gorgeous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:47 PM) : 

beautiful, she looks like a heroine from a book. or a film. I really like the way she wears etnic accesories, not too much, just enough to point out her etnic origin. lovely.


Blogger Jonathan said ... (3:59 PM) : 

I love this look on women. Reminds me of the golden age of Hollywood when it was less about thin and skin and more about style.


Blogger Miss Cavendish said ... (4:02 PM) : 

Absolutely lovely: the high-waisted nautical trousers, the scoop-neck stripes, the lipstick, the scarf, the gorgeous beachy light.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:36 PM) : 

Just goes to show you what good, red lipstick can do for a girl. Awesome!


Blogger norawoah said ... (4:37 PM) : 

Quelle joie de vivre!


Blogger sarah said ... (5:50 PM) : 

I'm in love! And have a new way to wear my scarf when summer comes to the Great Lakes. Timeless, beautiful and NO PLEATS - she's a woman after my own heart.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:54 PM) : 

this is such a great shot! it makes you feel happy straight away. i love her ring.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:05 PM) : 

it's lovely, but what do the pants look like? surely that's an important detail for the sartorialists in all of us!


Blogger wideyed said ... (7:25 PM) : 

STUNNER! 40's beach chic+million dollar smile=priceless!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:51 PM) : 

She strikes me as an old-school pinup girl, and that seems like the most modern thing possible!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 PM) : 

i want her to be my best friends fun cool mother. Perfectly fun and happy and sexy, and in a non-degrading way for once!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:36 PM) : 

OH my god. what a ray of sunshine.


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

Such a joyous image.

The best example I've seen recently on your site of a woman wearing the clothes and not vice versa.


Blogger mareGa said ... (11:24 PM) : 

Question: Is it titled Hyeres Femme because you're assuming she's from France, or because the way she dresses is very French, or what we would expect from a French girl? She's a journalist from Harper's Bazaar Kazakhstan. (OK, given, she doesn't need to be from that country because she works there, buuuuuuuuut...) [just asking.] Answer please.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:20 AM) : 

i love her and love you for catching her spirit.
its so refreshing and powerful. this picture puts a smile on my face :)
thank you!

She's so beautiful and refreshing looking! I love the bandanna.


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

Every single photograph you have shown us of Hyeres has been a stunner making me want to book my flight right away!

Everyone looks so healthy, fresh, lively, and interesting with glowing skin and perfect hair and strong bodies.

This is how I want my Spring to be!


Blogger The Spicers said ... (11:25 AM) : 

Love the sailor pants and ring!


Blogger Yi said ... (11:27 AM) : 

She looks almost like a vanity fair cover shot.. if only she was famous. Bright and Breezy comes to mind with this picture. I can't wait for summer to come to London!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:16 PM) : 

Wow. Her face is flawless and the outfit is just divine in its simplicity. I don't know if many people could wear it as well. Just looking at her smile and the whole photo makes me happy.

Thank you for this, Sart!


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

Reminds me of Sophie in Maugham's The Razor's Edge, with all of the cleverness and charm, and none of the tragedy.

I also agree with the first poster


Blogger Miriam Parkman said ... (4:42 PM) : 

That´s the way to look on the beach! She's very beautiful, personally and funny.


Blogger bomb.ass.ting said ... (8:28 PM) : 

The first comment by anonymous was the most unnerving kind of thing for me. I don't understand what you were getting at and it's really scary the more I read it, cause it's stalker-ish and disturbing. ANYWAY, gosh does she ever look cute. I love her skin color it's so healthy and with her features it's very exotic altogether. She kind of looks like she's doing a fashionable gypsy look.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:36 AM) : 

er i think what the first anonymous means is that the woman looks happy and relaxed that they can't help but be envious lol


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:39 AM) : 

To me she represents France. She look exactly like I expect French people to look like. The Highwaisted pant is a difficult garment to wear without looking weird. She looks amazing!

Like she should be in a magazine.


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

I love it. I call this look with her "naughty nautical". I hope to dress like this for the rest of the season.


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

reminds me of Sade : )

The headscarf brings it all together.

She's beautiful; something about her is reminiscent of Josphine Baker's vivacity and joie de vivre.
I want to marry her.
