The dress on the left is absolutely perfect. Their shoes are great too from what I can see.


Blogger Sartorial Vancouver said ... (5:03 PM) : 

That is terrific - to have someone close to share a love for style.

The shimmery tights look amazing!


Blogger the november princess said ... (5:11 PM) : 

I love how the bottom two both posed the same way, with their legs raised slightly.


Blogger Nikki said ... (5:12 PM) : 

They gray shoes and white necklace add such a nice layer to the all black silhouette!

The first picture recalls Dante Gabriele Rossetti. Great !


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

The top picture is kind of Sart does Diane's wonderful. The girl on the left looks like she should be in a movie, her hair and the lace dress make her look ethereal.


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

The sisters and friends are absolutely beautiful. I admire their sophistication, although I wish they would add a little color to keep it lighthearted. I'm also not a fan of the pidgeon-toed stance.

the twins have such a different look, exotic

I really have no idea what's going on in Paris since I left but I had never ever seen black so widely spread! Maybe It wasn't a misfortune as I could apprehend at one stage for I miss certain stores/shops/museums but since I'm "blackophobic" to the extreme!


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

absolutely gorgeous!

legss on thatt


Blogger Wanderlusting said ... (6:35 PM) : 

I love the first two - and love the second too. Big Love all around.

I love how the first twins (I've seen them before on here) keep to their romantic, Victorian styles (Velvet vest on one, lace dress on other) but still march to their own beat as individuals.

And the second pair - well they do look like they are going to a funeral, but they will be the best ones there! Love the silouhettes!

x0x0 Lusty


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

love the choice of hair style in all four looks


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:42 PM) : 

Quelles jolies mesdamoiselles!

Is there something in the water in Paris that makes the women so chic? There are chic women in other cities, of course, but they're not quite so ubiquitous.

My only critique is that I wish the girl on the left in the first picture would do something else with her hair. Her hair is so heavy that paired with such a light (weight-wise) outfit, it kind of throws off her proportions. And she looks like she's trying to hide behind her hair and she doesn't need to -- like her sister, she's gorgeous.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:47 PM) : 

just... AWESOME. nothing much else to say. awesome, awesome, awesome.


Blogger said ... (6:48 PM) : 

The four of them are lovely as they can be!!!


Blogger lauren baluyo said ... (6:55 PM) : 

Wowow these photos are amazing! I'm loving that girl with the lacey black minidress and patent boots, combined with her curly, radiant hair! HOTNESS.

Btw Scott, I remember seeing you around my campus, FIT, awhile back...but was a bit "star struck" to say hello. haha... great seeing you in person though!


Blogger Brigadeiro said ... (6:57 PM) : 

Oh, absolutely love this! Makes me miss my sisters even more :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:58 PM) : 

The second photo is reminiscent of Martin Munkasci's, Boys running into the surf at Lake Tanganyka. The clothes are negative space; utterly flat and geometric; cutouts from the landscape. It's a powerful effect.


Blogger PageAndLeaf said ... (7:02 PM) : 

oh god, loved the hair and the shoes of the girl in the first picture on the left side. the "black" sisters are simply gorgeous.


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

The silhouette of the girl with the white necklace is so very cool and elegant at the same time.


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

How lovely! Both pictures absolutely charming, they've raised my spirits. The 1st two look like 21st century pre-raphaelites (and I hope no one thoughtlessly suggests they straighten their hair this time) and the 2nd two look like 21st century heroines from Victorian novels.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:24 PM) : 

The best part is, you just KNOW these girls swap clothes and accessories all the time. Sister = instant double wardrobe!

For the girl on the left in the first pic, I love the shoes with that amazing lacy dress (although I'm curious what people have to say about the length). I'm not sure what the weather was and exactly how practical this outfit is, but . . . perhaps her long pretty hair can keep her warm. :) Her sister is also really rocking that vest.

As for the sisters in the bottom picture, I love how the girl on the left just seems to radiate bubbly light, while the one on the right has a very demure, subtle-but-undeniable presence.


Blogger mythri said ... (7:46 PM) : 

love the coat in the second picure


Blogger Bex said ... (8:03 PM) : 

Love the two in the 2nd elegant!!


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

The friends really match : the way they both wear black but different shades, different accessories: great exemple of how black can be personalized into something that allows to make the difference

Blogger Magpie said ... (10:38 PM) : 

I adore the elegant, echoed curve between the suede shoes and the cut of the amazing coat. Way to go, girl on the right side!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 PM) : 

The two friends have an incredible gothic-chic look, but the sister on the left needs to wear some pants, leggings... anything. She has lovely legs, but that is a *top*, not a dress. O_o


Blogger mm said ... (10:47 PM) : 

love the first photo. i find the contrast thee childlike outfit with the long hair and bare legs against her sisters more grownup look with the trousers and ladylike purse really interesting.


Blogger Jinsol said ... (10:52 PM) : 

OMG it's the twins(sisters?) with gorgeous hair! I loved their hair. Good to see that they kept it long and nice.


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

Both mademoiselles are equally stunning. Makes me miss my sister.


Blogger pepastyling said ... (11:13 PM) : 

Really evocative and artistic photos, congrats Sart!
That curly hair is a poem.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:15 PM) : 

Oops I was only commenting on bottom pic.

Above pic: I wonder if they know they ebb and flow with each other. One's hair's loose and the other's tied back. One's legs covered and the other's isn't. One wear's jewelry and the other doesn't. Very complimentary.


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (11:46 PM) : 

The second shot is lovely. How can you not love black? How? I love how long and lean they both look.


Blogger CW said ... (11:46 PM) : 

Top photo - Both girls are in 60's chic but the one on the left could use a handbag, while the bag for the sister on the right is out of period.

Bottom photo - Are they morticians? Are they novice nuns? Did these young women just came from a funeral? The look is too stark.


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

stunning, fabulous twins the make the olsens look like yesterdays news


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

Aaaaah, the infamous model twins and their curly hair!!! I love them both, classic beauties, they came straight off a painting.
The second sibling couple is just awesome. Fantastic!
To have a sister is the most unique and wonderful thing in the world. Once lost, you'll never be complete again.


Blogger Lance Rice said ... (12:04 AM) : 

Sigh, another reason to leave the US. Your photos are wonderful and convey the ugly truth about America's take on style, life and society as a whole.


Blogger pRiyA said ... (12:09 AM) : 

two amazing and beautiful sets of sisiters. gorgeous hair, lovely clothes!


Blogger Saucy said ... (12:12 AM) : 

These sisters put Mary Kate and Ashley to shame.


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

The top two girls are amazing - fabulous hair! Wish I had a sister, too. Great setting, Sart - beautiful allee.


Blogger sallymandy said ... (12:31 AM) : 

I'm struck by the two girls on top, not so much with their clothes as their hair. They appear to be twins. If so, the different hairstyles do very different things for their faces. While I love the hair on the left as hair, I feel it rather overpowers her face. (I have the same kind of hair, and have never worn it successfully long because it overpowers MY face.)

Lovely clothes, though, in both shots.

I hope it was warm.


Blogger Andrea said ... (12:34 AM) : 

I love the black dresses in the 2nd image. So chic!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:13 AM) : 

Study in classics - The first one is oh so pre-raphaelite, the second turn of the century with a twist, oh, I do love those!!! And the "couple" thing is a great idea!!! Last pic I liked this much was the vue de dos des roman sisters. (I must say, though, that these pics have a more garance-y feel to them tnan what you do ordinarily...)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:17 AM) : 

Gorgeous outfits!
The girls in the bottom photo look Russian.. lol.


Blogger T.P. said ... (5:02 AM) : 

The two sisters in the first picture look absolutely darling. Like ethereal characters from a fairy tale.

Beautifully gangly (top). Beautifully beautiful (bottom).

Love both photos. These young women have a sense of style that will certainly develop in the future. Would like to see them again in five years.... lovely.


Blogger Ruhvana and Flanelli said ... (5:16 AM) : 

These two photos are the best ones in long time! especially the girl's style in the first pic with the dress is amazing.


Blogger tizzylish said ... (5:25 AM) : 

love the first photo of the twins..I think you have shot them before. They are stunning and that white Chanel bag really puts a little edge in the outfit!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:24 AM) : 

Can we just clear something up, if you've ever spent any decent time in France, and not just in Paris, you'll know for a fact that it is a myth that french women have some inane gift of style. Even in Paris, the common or garden lady on the street is not, on the whole, so stylish as to grace the pages of this wonderful website. Yes, like any city, there are a few who ooze style and originality and who would look great in a plastic bag but on the whole in paris there is just a lot of black with the ocassional flourish of pillar box red plus, lets not forget the baba cool trend, prevalent amongst the french youth, which is possibly as far from high fashion as you could get.

PS. Is the one on the left not cold??


Blogger  said ... (6:38 AM) : 

Very nice couple of photos ! Bravo.
Amusing me, the first sister on the left reminds me sex in the city.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:37 AM) : 

twins, first picture, love the gold shimmery tights with the hair


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

Anyone know where I can find those kind of black boots the girl on the left is wearing? I have been looking for something like this for ages...!!


Blogger 50two said ... (8:01 AM) : 

i wish my sister and i were half as stylish as those twins.

All the sisters look fabulous!!

Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:43 AM) : 

All these gorgeous women in such a place like Paris. Four good reasons for me to move there. Great shots, they dress well. Thanks Sart.


Blogger Anne said ... (9:15 AM) : 

The girl on the left in the first picture looks like she forgot an essential piece of clothing, like opaque black tights--better yet, colored or even white tights or leggings. It's such a beautiful lace top, especially with her pre-Raphaelite looks. The girl in the bottom picture on the right looks Amish-chic--not necessarily a bad thing but a less severe hair style would balance the look.


Blogger Lucy said ... (10:22 AM) : 

I love both! The two friends are so Victorian chic. The sister on the left could actually wear opaque black tights, but she looks good indeed.


Blogger cami falcão said ... (10:49 AM) : 

both pics are great!
4 classy, stylish young ladies, those sisters have awesome hair and that dress.......what can i say? perfect!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:54 AM) : 

The gold tights complement her hair perfectly. She made the right choice. Also, I love the way the girl on right placed her hands, so natural. For the photo on the bottom, I love both hairstyles, and the way that they are both walking uniformly just makes the photo stand out even more. Great photos sart!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Sublime. Both the women and the shots.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:08 AM) : 

I think that the girl's black look on the right on the second picture looks too serious for her age and artificial.


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

Oh my goodness, the HAIR! Such lovely, lovely hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:34 AM) : 

The second pic is so August Sander...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:46 PM) : 

I disagree with the anonymous who wrote that French women are not especially stylish. I think they are definitely the most stylish women on earth. Of course, not everyone is fit to decorate the pages of Vogue or the blog of Sartorialist, but the general street look is certainly 10 to 15 percent more elegant than in any other country I have visited, including Italy. (About 50 countries altogether). I am Scandinavian myself. I love the lady in bottom phote right with the big pearls and skinny pants under the convent dress with the zipper.


Blogger R said ... (1:48 PM) : 

that is clearly how you wear a chanel bag - with character and class...not like those hollywood starlets who slap on their free chanels on top of tacky and/or unoriginal outfit choices


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:05 PM) :

Blogger myslak said ... (2:49 PM) : 

There is enough good stuff for at least 2 pictures I think. I like especially the look of the girl on the right - this is a so called perfection in styling - love the coat, the gloves, the necklace and the shoes (altogether and separately).

The top left gal is gorgeous, but she looks incredibly boxy in that dress. I think if she just stood up straight...

This is a pic that is reminiscent of August Sander's work. It's beautiful. Composition, lighting, movement, the gaze, the outfits. Heaven.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:09 PM) : 

love these, especially the one with 'the hair'. very interesting.


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

Nothing really stands out to me about the first pic at all actually. The hair on the left sided girl throws me off and the outfits I think are simple.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:49 AM) : 

MY GOODNESS! The lady on the left (first photo) looks exactly like Mona Lisa! Anyone realise that?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:36 AM) : 

first picture (sisters) - LOVE the contrast between the girls. i especially adore the sister on the right, and the deep burgundy colour of her fur vest. very luxe and practical! (and i am lusting for that chanel bag, its perfection).

second picture (friends) - this is pure victorian chic. i cannot rave enough about the silhouette of the coat on the girl on the right. i know its random, but i have never considered wearing jewellery on the OUTSIDE of a coat (statement piece or otherwise, not sure why!). im not sure if its my computer (or bad eyesight) but i love how her coat looks as if it fades from black up the top to navy blue (around where the coat opens on her legs).

great finds sart!

I love everyone's look, style, attitude, the individual pieces--but what I love most about the second photo of the friends is how they seem quite content together. They look very happy and very close, and I enjoy looking at that.


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

i coudn't help but squeal "ooh gorgeous!" when i saw the bottom right girl... is she wearing really skinny pants underneath her coat?

i think i've seen the girls from the top before... one does not easily forget hair like that.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:48 AM) : 

it was Karl Lagerfeld's show? i saw the 2 ladies in black too.


Blogger Dhppy said ... (7:36 PM) : 

The second photo of the two friends really shows the power of the accessory. Though the woman on the left is taller and glows, my eye is drawn to the woman on the right, partly because she's in the center of the frame, but largely due to her contrasting necklace, handbag and shoes. I'm lazy with accessories, but this image is a good reminder of how useful they can be.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:58 PM) : 

I've never seen in Paris such stylish girls =) dress is rather dangerous due to its length 8) coats are really cool!
