Blogger Callie Grayson said ... (8:35 AM) : 

love that coat!


Blogger - said ... (8:42 AM) : 

très chic!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:01 AM) : 

This mish-mash of fur is not working for me (nothing political, i'm not anti-fur and i think re-cycling old fur is a good thing) but that clutch is fantastic and i like her large ring worn over gloves. French women do chic detail like no-one else!


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

Now this is a very striking look. First of all, the wonderfully androgynous head--this could be a beautiful young man, or a handsomely mannish woman. And this impression is oddly intensified by the jacket, which--instead of looking cropped, with 3/4 sleeves--looks as though it were too small on the beautiful young man. Then we notice the architectural clutch, and especially the chunky ring worn on top of the glove. A self-presentation that seems designed to raise questions, to disturb assumptions. Reminding us that fashion is both a matter of conformity AND invention/difference.


Blogger Evelyn said ... (9:16 AM) : 

i like the purse.


Blogger agus said ... (9:31 AM) : 

What a beautiful woman! Perfekt!
I like pictures on this blog :-)
Greetings from Poland


Blogger InStudio Blog said ... (9:33 AM) : 

I like the short length of her jacket and the ring over the glove. When I was little, I thought that was SO glamorous and I might start doing it myself.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:38 AM) : 

Being a Brit, where there is a huge anti-fur brigade, I probably shouldn't be confessing to this - but, I absolutely adore that jacket.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:44 AM) : 

I love how the jacket and bag use the same "patchwork" concept in different materials. Great photo, ditto Argylian, Florence. More creative mixing.


Blogger 恵理 said ... (9:48 AM) : 

What an amazing face! The clothes are just an addition, though a very stylish one


Blogger diane said ... (9:50 AM) : 

She really does look very elegant, doesn't she? The minimal makeup and slicked back hair are what completes the look for me.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:55 AM) : 

beautiful fur and clutch!


Blogger Mo said ... (9:55 AM) : 

i love that clutch, it looks so sculptured


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:04 AM) : 

hummm,… :S, fur doesn't work for me... the coat has a nice cut! Like the hair though! everything else looks to easy…


Blogger Laura said ... (10:12 AM) : 

Such a stunning woman! And what wonderful gloves. Such the perfect color of grey.


Blogger N said ... (10:21 AM) : 

harmonious contrast


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (10:23 AM) : 

I like her handbag, and the ring she is wearing looks interesting.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:24 AM) : 

W O W !


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

Oh. the bag!


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

The ring over the glove - genius.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:10 AM) : 

Bellissima!!such elegance! :) mmm,mi piace davvero.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:33 AM) : 

I'd be really curious to see what the watch she was wearing underneath the glove looked like. Don't suppose you got a detail shot of it, did you Sart? Even covered up by the glove, you can tell that big, solid square works with the clutch and patch jacket.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (12:09 PM) : 

Although I don't think she can take off her other glove, with the ring on the top.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (12:32 PM) : 

yes, the ring on her glove is excellent.


Blogger Mirka said ... (12:46 PM) : 

the bag is awesome!


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

I love her!


Blogger Duchesse said ... (1:17 PM) : 

I keep looking and looking at the calm confidence and good will in her face. A zoom view shows crow's feet. Why do so many women botox this character away?
I like the playfulness of her fur.


Blogger Bedlam said ... (1:31 PM) : 

love this coat and purse, great look


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:42 PM) : 

Perfect androgyny! Elegant, edgy, and chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Love the material & color mix: fur jacket, cashmere gloves, metallic clutch. The wet look of her hair is making this look complete.


Blogger Michael Joseph Owens said ... (1:53 PM) : 

Fantastic bag.


Blogger Laguna Beach Fogey said ... (2:08 PM) : 

My goodness, Sart, this is a splendid shot. She is quite beautiful. I love her hair. Not only is she wearing a wonderful fur coat, but she has taken off a glove to reveal black-painted nails. I feel strangely drawn to her.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:47 PM) : 

i love her clutch, her ring and hairstyle (although her hair looks like it was "sculpted"?)
i don't know how the jacket fits into any of this.
but what matters is that she has a beautiful face without makeup.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:59 PM) : 

She's a lovely woman with "I know stuff" eyes and an elegant bone structure (note her bare forearm), but I wish her hair was a little softer in style, lighter in color.


Blogger Unknown said ... (2:59 PM) : 


j'adore your blog<3


Blogger anonwomen said ... (3:17 PM) : 

She makes it look so effortless. She is so comfortable in her own skin

I love the beautiful clean face; love the mix of the browns in the fur with the grey sweater and gloves. I love how soft and easy the fur is, Alber manages to make a fur coat light with a great 'throw away' attitude.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:21 PM) : 

The only thing that bothers me here is the peek of her sweater sleeve on her left arm (it seems to be pushed up on the right arm. I would have preferred sleeves short enough under the coat not to show, also so that one can appreciate that her lovely grey gloves are long ones.
As for the ring, I've noticed little girls' gloves with a "ring" sewn on one finger. Solves the problem of taking off a glove with a ring over it...


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

bela faccia, great face. and smiling. all the rest is an accessory. faces make the look great


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:09 PM) : 

I like everything about this, especially the oversized clutch!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 PM) : 

you cannot go wrong with Lanvin


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:40 PM) : 

She's disturbing, stunning, steely, soft...just like the fur, the ring, the clutch, the gloves.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:51 PM) : 

That women is fabulous. Another incroyable photo.


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:21 PM) : 

her face is utterly timeless. it's like she could be wearing anything else below the chin and she'd look equally stunning. what a life, simply born with the perfect accessory.

(and then, of course, bonus cred for the amazing clutch, ring-over-glove, and the enormous watch it looks like she's wearing under the glove. badass.)


Blogger JP said ... (5:29 PM) : 

she looks like a young Marella Agnelli


Blogger Nei said ... (6:42 PM) : 

trés chique!!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:09 PM) : 

i think the coat is margiela. absolutely love this look.


Blogger August Clothing said ... (8:16 PM) : 

She doesn't look like she pulled that look out of a magazine, or off of a runway. It's all her, including her beautiful face. That is what personal style is all about!


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (11:49 PM) : 

I'm not a fan of fur, but I do love that fierce clutch she's holding!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:17 AM) : 

She looks like very elegant and comfortable. Good shot!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:04 AM) : 

It makes me miss my lost glove thin enough for me to slip my ring over. I ADORE the clutch, it's Amazing, and the long sleeve peaking out from beneath the coat is a chic finish.



Blogger Hanna and Daniel said ... (4:12 AM) : 

Where did she get that hair do? That's a brave one. And it suits her in some kind of weard way.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:54 AM) : 

The cropped sleeve, the clutch, her hair - love it all.

Most intrigued by what that watch looks like UNDER the glove...

Especially with the ring OVER it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:24 AM) : 

I don't like the layering, with that long sleeved shirt poking out over the gloves. I think it would be better with just the long gloves disappearing under the coat.
Ring detail is fantastic though, and I wish we could see that watch!


Blogger Barbara said ... (5:32 AM) : 

I love her androgenous face and gentle look but the jacket and bag leave me unimpressed. Love the gloves with the ring - it probably doesn't fit without the glove!! She's a really nice person - it's all in her eyes....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:06 AM) : 

What an excellent comment "... simply born with the perfect accessory"

She looks to be wearing no make up......


Blogger Shaynuh said ... (7:23 AM) : 

I love that clutch! Its so resin and edgy!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:35 AM) : 

This lady has a really sharp look going on! From the hair to the harsh rectangular shaped patent clutch, but the fur jacket just softens it all out!

Great find!



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:32 AM) : 

She looks straight out of a different era. It's really chic, but completely effortless at the same time!

LOVE it!


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

She is beautiful....


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:25 PM) : 

I know her !!! She is the director of the Lanvin shop in Monaco and, of course, the Fur and the Clutch (and everything eslse) is from Lanvin collections :)
Thanks for all the comments about her and our brand (I work there too !!!)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:08 PM) : 

The coat looks like something someone made in Home Ec. Not good. I'm, frankly, shocked at the approval here. If the woman weren't so chic and no one knew who the designer was.... Well, it looks Thrift Shop. And, not a good Thrift Shop, either. One in Cincinatti.

I do like the gloves, the jersey shirt, her hair and most of all The Smile.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:08 AM) : 

the one stand-out for me is her hair! only 1 in 1000 women would be so brave!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:02 AM) : 

I love it when men and women cut their hair short and away from their face to accentuate their face. This woman took it further and is wearing little or no makeup. The face tells the story, not hair style, makeup or designer glasses. Rather than stand back and admire, you are drawn to them.

And, hey, cavemen wore fur because of necessity and where would we be without the cavemen? Did I really say that?? LOL!!

Anyway, the gloves and the ring nail the outfit. It's nonchalant and chic.

I bet she would make a great dinner partner.


Blogger O!Lightning said ... (9:07 PM) : 

my god she is SO beautiful!


Blogger cat said ... (4:30 PM) : 

the gloves and bag cought my eyes, very sophistcated


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

Details :
CLUTCH+ RING + knitted gloves are perfect.
I would prefer she weras the watch on her gloves. It would have been awesome.
I like this mix and match of couture and casual wear.
I guess she is iatalian: regarding the hairstyle, the furcoat...
Congratulations Lady
Brigade de la Mode Paris


Blogger Anya said ... (6:48 AM) : 

It would have all looked so manly without the fur coat that added a soft edge.

And that clutch to to die for..


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:53 PM) : 

i would do anything for that bag.


Blogger maiah said ... (9:12 PM) : 

there are a lot of lovely things happening in this image but i just can't get over her gorgeous grey gloves. perfect length, and thin enough to wear a stunning cocktail ring over. i love it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:29 PM) : 

She would give good counsel; we would enjoy our tea.
