Blogger Emily said ... (5:43 PM) : 

What's the big insect-looking thing near her bag??


Blogger mimi. said ... (5:45 PM) : 

She looks like Andy Warhol


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:46 PM) : 

La Lanphear is simply HOT!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:47 PM) : 

Let's acknowledge the giant beetle. I hope its a purse accessory. Without it the bag would drag.


Blogger theheadcrusher said ... (5:48 PM) : 

what's that beetle thing on the right side of the photo?


Blogger måsh måsh said ... (5:49 PM) : 

she always looks so good without really trying


Blogger The Concrete Commentator said ... (5:51 PM) : 

love her hair, and the bag is great! is that a a crab claw i see on the right near her bag, or am I seeing things?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:51 PM) : 

great pic, but looks like she's about to get robbed by that freaky lobster claw thing


Blogger Virginia M Byers said ... (5:51 PM) : 

what is that giant but in the corner?


Blogger Pappelschnee said ... (5:53 PM) : 

She reminds me of Robyn (Swedish singer)... Very 80's, so cool.


Blogger KD said ... (5:54 PM) : 

Black is always great! It gives a nice contrast with the white hair and all black.

By the way...what's the thing next to the bag?


Blogger Adriana Ximenes said ... (5:55 PM) : 



Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (5:56 PM) : 

She is supercool!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:56 PM) : 

A classic look done really well.
Slightly worried by whatever it is disappearing out of the right of the photo.. what is it?? an over-cooked lobster? some kind of giant London cockroach? Does she know it's there? did anyone tell her??


Blogger Jim said ... (6:00 PM) : 

a modern day remake of Breakfast at Tiffany's (must be the Ray Bans) 48 years later, fabulous!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:01 PM) : 

what is that scorpion thing at the bag!??!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:03 PM) : 

It's the female counterpart of Andy Warhol. Beautiful!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:04 PM) : 

I'm slightly confused by what looks to be a black lobster claw near her bag ...


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

Is it just me or has a stag beetle flown into the picture close to the camera, it doesnt look to be attached to the bag!!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:10 PM) : 

Kate is not that old! Maybe early 30s? I think this photo/angle makes her look older... she is beautiful though.


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (6:15 PM) : 

She looks gorgeous as always, but I'm intrigued, what's that black insect/thing on the right of the picture near that amazing bag?


Blogger Emmet Garage said ... (6:17 PM) : 

it reminds of Andy Warhol..the hair and sun-glasses....good job!!- emmet


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

lovely cockroach


Blogger Sam said ... (6:17 PM) : 

andy warhol?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:20 PM) : 

She is lovely but what's that next to her bag? it looks like a black lobster :-$


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:21 PM) : 

it looks like a giant ant is attacking her bag from stage right. what is that?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:22 PM) : 

Mysterious pulled off by the platinum do and studded purse. wow.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 PM) : that a giant beetle hanging off of her bag?


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (6:24 PM) : 

hello my long lost twin....?
this coat is STYLISH, in a word. wish we could see her shoes, but i can imagine they're fabulous.

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:52 PM) : 

Please Sart: What is that lobster thing?!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:29 PM) : 

Dear Sart,

I adore this picture but most of all I love the comments concerning this picture!

Could you please tell us the (I can imagine brilliant story of the giant black lobster?)

Thank you Sart, keep up the good work!


Blogger The Sartorialist said ... (7:33 PM) : 

i have no idea what it is but we were very close to the British Natural History Museum....and the McQueen boutique


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:52 PM) : 

she looks great as usual...seriously when people have style...what can you do...:)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:12 PM) : 

This is the first time that a Sartorialist fashion pic contains a sense of beauty and menace. Almost Hitchcockian. Yeahoo for the bag bug :) I foretell a directional fashion sense here.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:25 PM) : 

Platinum Blonde – Ambition.

All you need is a studded handbag and your done.

And maybe a hint of retro sunglasses.

Nothing more nothing less.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:45 PM) : 


LOL... That is funny... Her statement seems to be: Remember the lobsters - On the brink of extinction!

But i love it. Carrie put an accent on her weddingdress with a bird and Kate wears a lobster. Great.

A bientôt,


Blogger Peter Miszuk said ... (9:08 PM) : 

haha its all the beetles i took from the mulberry store the night before! oh i was obsessed with the bedazzled beetles!


Blogger Peter Miszuk said ... (9:16 PM) : 

Mullberry is all about the beetles, I think I had about 15 that I, left throughout london!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:18 PM) : 

london fashion is so intriguing !!
please post more photos of london fashion.


Blogger George A. said ... (9:45 PM) : 

Definitely Robyn!


Blogger DP said ... (9:51 PM) : 

the answer to the crustaceous riddle is inside the parcel and judging by the looks of it, she keeping her deal close.


Blogger John B Pritchett said ... (9:58 PM) : 

The giant claw is trying to steal her bag! Get away damn claw!!!


Blogger indigo warrior said ... (10:07 PM) : 

Hasn't anyone heard about the giant insects that are replacing miniature dogs as the accessory du jour? I heard Paris named hers Eeeewww.

I love the convertable-ness of her jacket - the whole bottom zips off right? I've been wondering how the whole giant hardware look works with these bags - everything else needs to be pretty understated huh? I'll have to go to Tarjay boutique and see what's going on. Great look.


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

hot damn!!

I wish I was this lady's assistant.

Someone rescue Gregor!


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:00 PM) : 

I love that bag and also her hair cut. She looks adorable


Blogger augusta said ... (11:56 PM) : 

her hair is awesome.. but that scorpion thingie is freakin me out


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

Please Sir,

Can we have some of London....



Blogger diane said ... (12:15 AM) : 

Sart, this is my favorite post ever! Could not stop laughing at all of the funny comments. Thank you so much. Great!


Blogger The Voguette said ... (12:17 AM) : 

her studded bag is superb - but ... is that a scorpion eating it?!!? lol.


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

Oh, Sart, I hope you were a gentleman and saved her from this would-be purse snatcher of a beetle. He must have been a tricky sucker, not to mention terrifying, what with his ability to suspend himself in midair. But we all believe in you.

Sart to the rescue!


Blogger allison said ... (1:40 AM) : 

her hair is brilliant!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:47 AM) : 

i may have solved the beetle mystery!

the ladies at posted these pics of the mulberry presentation (in london), where very similar looking critters were used as decoration:

i'm thinking kate was there and snatched one as an accessory!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:49 AM) : 

Who is the bag by? That is my question.


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

I love her hair! I wish I could carry such style.


Blogger A. said ... (2:11 AM) : 

I love this photo, her hair, smile, glasses ... :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:25 AM) : 

She looks great !
Love the contrast between her hair and her outfit 's colors...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:39 AM) : 

who is her bag by?! i love it. <3


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:39 AM) : 

I see this beautiful photo and my weariness for black goes away. I remember why black is so indispensible and always so freakin' chic. Love it, just love it all over again.
The Andy Warhol-esque hair and shades are cool too.


Blogger Breathless said ... (3:50 AM) : 

All I can see is that freaky beetle.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:04 AM) : 

Where can I find that bag?? Who is it by?? i love it!


Blogger Maria said ... (4:27 AM) : 

hahaa this is such a surprising picture!


Blogger Mercurialblonde said ... (5:06 AM) : 

That is a scary scary bug. I hope she made it out okay.


Blogger Unknown said ... (6:30 AM) : 

Nice photo, and lovely smile...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:45 AM) : 

Someons can tell me who she is?
I have seen her in many street fashion shots. She always looks great. I suppose she is an editor,
isn't she?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:49 AM) : 

is this robyn the singer?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:26 AM) : 

Love the outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:33 AM) : 

After you took this photo, did the giant charred insect take a bite out of her? just curious.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:22 AM) : 

It's a Mulberry Bug.., I assume she went to the Mulberry party on Monday..Bugs all over the place..


Blogger Raul Bonatiu said ... (8:43 AM) : 

my favorite lady!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:55 AM) : 

Insext-infested Bag aside, this look was possible-to-excellent any time over the past 30 years. And that's what makes it so good.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:24 AM) : 

Andy Warhol??


Blogger Shadan said ... (9:39 AM) : 

ultimate *chic*


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:08 AM) : 

Major girl-crush. I love it when you post pics of Kate. My favorite are Chelsea after the rain and this one, because of her smile and the crazy pincher reaching out to snatch her Mulberry.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (10:33 AM) : 

The Mulberry bug is a little distracting but lends the outfit a touch of the surreal.


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

You take a picture, and it turns out that a mystery object appears in it. Scary! Just like in "Blow Up".


Blogger so said ... (11:10 AM) : 

the first thing i notice, is obviously, her great hair.
the second thing...and i had to refocus my eyes a that giant insect creeping into the frame. is it part of her bag??
or some joke-ster trying to be amusing??


Blogger Stephanie Clayton said ... (11:27 AM) : 

I'm having so much fun reading all the beetle comments- hilarious! This is my favorite post ever. I love it, creepy bug & all!


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

She is SUCH a gorgeous woman--even prettier in person and BEYOND sweet to work with! LOVE to see her still looking so fierce!

kate, always great!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:33 PM) : 

Who is she?


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

She always looks good. Love the coat but I especially love the creature from the black lagoon bogarting into the shot.... She's smiling, unaware that she's about to get eaten up!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:13 PM) : 

without her hair, she's nothing.


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

Ladies and gentlemen, we have only this picture, but what we've seen speaks for itself. London has been taken over - conquered, if you will - by a master race of giant style ants. It's difficult to tell from this vantage point whether they will consume the captive British or merely enslave them. One thing is for certain, there is no stopping them; the ants will soon be here. And I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords. I'd like to remind them that as a trusted arbiter of style, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their underground sugar caves.


Blogger xtinamarie said ... (2:50 PM) : 

it's my hero! kate lanphear, style director at elle!

and i somewhat resent michael's comment that she was "more mature" even if he meant it as a compliment.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:55 PM) : 

That is kate lanphear. Gorgeous as always.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:00 AM) : 

I love her hair and her sunglasses, but then you all pointed out the bug on her bag, and now I can't see anything else. Eww.


Blogger alice said ... (2:48 AM) : 

Great photo Sart & even better comments I laughed so much. Evenso she looks scared, ummm London... make that just cold.


Blogger Yvonne said ... (7:36 AM) : 

Queen Kate with the hair, ray bans, the stud bag and the smile...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:06 AM) : 

As a biologist, I have to say I love the crustacean touch on her bag........... : ) A whole new take on accessories in the same color palette.

But I definitely couldn't pull this accessories look off, even among my biologist friends.


Blogger CW said ... (10:33 AM) : 

The bag saves the outfit from being dull.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:43 AM) : 

For goodness sake, its just a garden variety bag bug. We see them all the time here in New Zealand. Make great pets.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:20 AM) : 

The look is nice, but not amazingly unique or stylish or beautiful. Don't you see plenty of girls walking around the city looking like this? I do (I'm in Sydney). Nice but not incredible...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Sart, please explain the stag beetle.


Blogger Joana said ... (2:42 PM) : 

Kate, she's the best. Such a great style she has, and I would kill to have that hair :)


Blogger ten thousand things said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Great pic and comments! Looks like the beetle's being held by someone standing next to her rather than attached to her bag though...


Blogger Adora said ... (9:22 PM) : 

That constrast with her hair and outfit is so chic. Love it!



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



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:39 PM) : 

why does everybody make the same coments? "uh what is that thing..."
it is terribly dull

Who is Kate? I'm new here, but would love to see more photos of her. Yes, the claw....hum.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:46 PM) : 

Love the bag! Is the black creature attached to the it?


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (12:04 AM) : 

What a riot! I've read the posts and I'm not the only one who thinks there's a big black crustacean creature trying to grab her bag.

Sort of takes the attention off her cool pose. But it's memorable!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:42 AM) : 

Beetle aside, this is so London right now.


Blogger josephine said ... (3:19 PM) : 

Kate rocks a black and white palette like nobody I've ever seen.
