Blogger wongkamying said ... (9:36 AM) : 

Classic with an edge, i like it! How romantic!


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (9:44 AM) : 

WOW! I know you feel proud of this shot.. You should be! This is one of my favorite shots of yours. I want to matte and frame it. Love her expression, her hair, and I really like how you focused the camera with the tile in focus. It feels sooo vintage! Superb.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:48 AM) : 

A different sort of composition for you(?)--full of soft curves in the architectural details, the rug, the subject's coat, her hair; even her hand shoved in her pocket adds to the feeling.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:49 AM) : 

so french


Blogger Pixienish said ... (9:54 AM) : 

Beautiful - down to the shiny patent surface on her boots.


Blogger Mo said ... (9:58 AM) : 

i love the shape of that coat, and the shoes just complete it perfectly


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:58 AM) : 

This photo is *superb*. Face, hair, dress, posture, setting. This is pure brilliance.

French fantasy...


Blogger Hemaly said ... (10:11 AM) : 

The look is lovely. Very parisian.


Blogger tal said ... (10:17 AM) : 

It's a beautiful image, but I'm still trying to decide if I like those boots...


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (10:21 AM) : 

Her pose is so demure, so French.
I am enamored with the entire ensemble.
I live in a hot climate where good street style is nearly nonexistent. Therefore, these photos of people actually dressed for the day really speak to my fashion spirit.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:25 AM) : 

Tres tres tres bon! The boots are amazing - I bought them recently for dirt cheap, for Michael Kors (find them online at Jildor Shoes). She rocks this look. And you rock the angle.


Blogger Brian said ... (10:31 AM) : 

Those boots could walk all over me!


Blogger Maria said ... (10:33 AM) : 

she looks very confident, I would be too in her outfit :D


Blogger so said ... (10:35 AM) :

I love her boats but more her coat!!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:03 AM) : 

absolutely gorgeous. what a wonderful coat. and she wears it so well!


Blogger norawoah said ... (11:07 AM) : 

What a great silhouette! I love that her boots look so modern, her coat is classic and her bag is vintage looking, and yet they all work together.
Ils vont bien ensemble!


Blogger Linnéa said ... (11:12 AM) : 

I want those shoes!!


Blogger Milo Beloved said ... (11:27 AM) : 

This is dripping with class and charm, but I could think of some better shoes for it.


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

Can we please retire that style of shoe? They're tacky.


Blogger Held said ... (11:43 AM) : 

i was there last christmas!
lovin Paris!


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

coat's nice. but wouldve been a generic french chick without the boots.
the boots give the edge.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:57 AM) : 

French fashion, never wrong. I want to wear that coat! And I absolutely LOVE the background!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:03 PM) : 

Dark eye, dark hat, dark boots, wonderful hairdo...
Golden background and extravagant floor make it match so well with the name of the photograph (countess of Castiglione was an extrordinary, 'blazing' woman...) Great!


Blogger pve design said ... (12:04 PM) : 

She looks happy and a bit naughty, in a good way like she just had a wonderful lunch and is ready for a nap.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (12:10 PM) : 

Love the boots and her attitude!


Blogger - said ... (12:33 PM) : 

Damn French and their great sense of style. Ugh, adore the jacket.


Blogger yesnoyes said ... (12:37 PM) : 

Too chic for her own good!

So elegant!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:17 PM) : 

Parisian women def have a great sense of style. I can't believe that you just find these people in the streets.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:38 PM) : 

Fashionable footwear is de rigueur, and she clearly got the memo! Those boots are killer!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:50 PM) : 

Boots are Michael Kors, just bought 'em last week. They have a thick rubber sole which makes them suprisingly comfy too.


Blogger Rock'n Roll Ballerina said ... (7:36 PM) : 

What a beautiful photo! Love the colors and the attitude of the woman. I love your photos. Super blog!! Keep up the great work of art!


Blogger John Danner said ... (8:42 PM) : 

This is so great.

Can't imagine seeing someone looking this great...just seeing it in motion.


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

The coat is lovely. The pose well, it's memorable but not really necessary because the coat speaks for itself. I don't think that i agree with the footwear but I appreciate the contrast they offer to the coat. I get it.

Also, thank you for getting back into showing a mix of types of people. She's not so conventional and that is great!



Blogger Ciao said ... (9:49 PM) : 

I love it....just great!


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

Michael Kors High-heeled Doc Martens! I bought them a couple weeks ago for 75% off! the comfiest shoes in the world and instantly breath some edge into any boring old outfit. love it!

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

i think she tries too hard to look good. there's no natural flow.


Blogger secondvurss said ... (11:27 PM) : 

i really like her shoes- very smooth...


Blogger Daisy said ... (11:31 PM) : 

I want hair like her...but red.

gorgeous picture as always Sart

Beautiful Photo!


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

killer boots and love the back in the coat, the silhouette is great. i dont like that the bag is brown though, would have been better in black.


Blogger Phamtastic said ... (1:38 AM) : 

How do these people even develop this unbelievable sense of style? It seems as if they are born with super powers. Even children are well-styled.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:06 AM) : 

Put it on the cover of your book. Amazing, dreamlike. Work of art.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:24 AM) : 

Love her grey balenciaga coat!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:28 AM) : 


A lovely image and so natural in Paris.

Merci, Zoé


Blogger STUDIOPHOTO1 said ... (4:40 AM) : 

I love the comments about a "so french" look, believe me reality is not always like that, but this is interesting the way you see France or you imagine France, you can find this in NY or Berlin even Bruxelles , but anyway this is nice , remind me the idea about America and NY that we had when we were young, I mean in France. Something mythic, the French glamour, Paris capital of fashion.America the country where you arrive poor on monday and where you are rich next saturday..
Concerning the pic, love the Annick Goutal tiles under the "mistress" shoes of this glamourous young lady. Very 1920- 1930 mood, could be Cartier Bresson atmosphére!
Thanks Mr Sarto ...


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

"so french" veut simplement faire référence au passé, à l'image de la ville de Paris et de sa la parisienne chic. Evidemment le style est unniversel , mais pas les influences


Blogger JP said ... (7:21 AM) : 

very sleek, S&M boots!

I second studiophoto1, the floor is an amazing stage


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:41 AM) : 

thanks phillipe for mentioning this elaborate, romanticized, 'so french' view of parisians, or "french" people in general. just bc it is a 'good' stereotype, it doesnt change the fact that it is a stereotype and these are inherently reductive.

paris is a place of incredible diversity and a range of style. there is no one french 'look.' perhaps those within the fashion community share a love of fine labels and couture, yet i think if you were to venture into immigrant communities, you would really see the inequity that lies there and also appreciate a different and equally valuable notion of 'style'...


Blogger J.A.F. said ... (7:41 AM) : 

Love the proportion and the styling, those bangs!


Blogger Hek said ... (7:43 AM) : 

This is a gorgeous shot!


Blogger Lia Martins said ... (7:55 AM) : 

Her sphinx look is kind of fascinating - just like "decipher me or I devour you".

And I love her bag, too. And her hair, and her boots, and her coat... xD


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:56 AM) :

What a beautiful coat and those boots are amazing.


Blogger Baybay Mama said ... (12:13 PM) : 

It looks like a time warp but in a beautiful way. I love the whole outfit!


Blogger zuccotto said ... (1:10 PM) : 

Love the photo.
Love the coat.
Don't love the boots.
Hope she doesn't drive with her hair like that.


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Most posers are ordinary posers. But this lady really takes the effort to pose in a original way.

Good picture!


Blogger LRB said ... (1:43 PM) : 

I love everything, especially the back of that coat!


Blogger Bea said ... (2:06 PM) : 

I like the way she looks!! So French!! What about her eyes?


Blogger Baeloclaudia said ... (2:44 PM) : 

Well inspired and good pose!!!

Gorgeus boots!!!

I wouldn't need anything else with a coat like that!

Some great stuff this week Scott!

Love the shoes


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:52 PM) : 

holy shit this is an amazing shot!! there is something old world glamour about her but at the same time her boots are pretty modern.

love everything!

this shot should definitely go in the book!


Blogger August Clothing said ... (5:05 PM) : 

Love the drape at the back of the coat, and what a wonderful backdrop for her. It's like you caught her window shopping and she only noticed she was being watched when the shutter snapped.


Blogger said ... (5:23 PM) : 

She's lovely, so Fresh French! Not a fan of those boots. What I'm really in love with here the that whole setting! Delicious!


Blogger Yeo Peng Peng said ... (6:31 PM) : 

boots on their own, not a great deal .. coat on its own, not a great deal either .. but put all together on this lady, on the beautiful mosaic, romantic lighting, with only one eye hynotising the camera .. it's wow! love this pic


Blogger Aziza N. said ... (7:10 PM) : 

Je crois que c'est la photo que je préfère parmi toutes celles prises à Paris. Encore une fois cette lumière, ce style et cette pose!


Blogger Unknown said ... (7:44 PM) : 

I want those boots!


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

How fabulous this photograph was taken at what I think is the Paris main retail location of my favorite parfumeur - Annick Goutal. The store is tiny but completely mirrored so comes across like a 40s Hollywood jewelry box.


Blogger Carl said ... (8:21 PM) : 

Nice pose. She is doing her damn thang! I don't like the back of that coat. I can't help but think "back fat" or a place to store stolen goods. She sorta reminds of of a sexy thief coming out from the store behind her. Anyway, Great pic.


Blogger david said ... (8:31 PM) : 

this is shaina...and she's a new yorker (and lovely). ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:18 PM) : 

i really love the double buckle topping the ankle boots. non-functional but perfect. the back drop to the coat adds a subtle flair to the lines.

nice. super nice.


Blogger SparkleQueen said ... (10:42 PM) : 

Cool outfit and a very nice background to go with everything!



Blogger Jen said ... (10:58 PM) : 

what a perfect photo! Those boots! That background! So perfectly French!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:01 PM) : 

Elle est tres jolie!! What a terrific blog you've got! The photos are endlessly gorgeous to look at! I'll definitely vote for the Sartorialist in he blog awards! :)


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

I just had a very weird moment. This girl looks exactly like me, but with better clothes... and I literally went, "WWHhhaaa?" thinking that I had somehow posed for this picture without remembering it.

Wishful thinking.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:48 AM) : 

That coat is by Rodnik and sells at Barney's in New York.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:37 AM) : 

Unfair. Everything is better in France.

I love the outfit especially the coat and the way it had been created. Very creative and the girl is so chic in her pose.

Blogger Thomas said ... (2:42 PM) : 

i love her pose!


Blogger Jola said ... (3:23 PM) : 

A funny thing... so many people "wow!-ed" about her being so French while someone mentioned that she is a New Yorker:) and that she actually wears stuff by American designers.

So i am thinking to myself that it is not an excuse "I don't dress that well because I am not French". In fact, it is about some kind of consciousness that makes you dress in a certain way.



Blogger Tiger Fodder said ... (8:48 PM) : 

The whole look is fantastic. The boots are perfection! WOW!


Blogger ChristannChanell said ... (9:59 PM) : 

I love it!
She is beautiful!
and the pose....DIVINE!!


Blogger daltonmc said ... (12:46 AM) : 

The upper part of the outfit has that "timeless" quality about it, but those boots. Ugh...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:49 AM) : 

So French ! So Paris ! So chic !
Except the lady's from New York and she's wearing Michael Kors shoes and a Rodnick coat...


Blogger Lyralie said ... (4:47 PM) : 

The KORS Michael Kors - Mogul looks very similar to her boots.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:13 PM) : 

I am in love with this photo!!! Inspired and in love! The lights, the store fronts, the woman and her fabulous French style and the tiling on the floor. Just gorgeous all around!


Blogger Starck Mad said ... (12:33 AM) : 

Don't know what is more gorgeous, the tiled floor, or those shoes!
You're killing me with these gorgeous photos.

As if Cecil Beaton hit the streets!!

1920s chic! Love the beret and boots!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:37 AM) : 

That coat is so unique! i love the way they have placed the volume in an usual place on the back? Weired, but it seems to work, especially with her pose!
And amazing boots... i need me some of them!

The coat is tantalizing! It's like a long come-on that I don't want to end.

I love that everybody thinks she's "so French"! She's actually an American model named Shaina Danziger from Kansas! She did my lookbook last Fall. She's with the Muse agency in NY. She's SO sweet and the girl can seriously make shapes...amazing poser!
