Love this whole ensemble. Maybe it's just because I, too, wear mostly black all the time.

great hair.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:58 AM) : 



(It's not often I feel the use for capitals.)

Is that blue nail polish? I love it. Matches the blue black hair.

Beautiful arms and hands too. Agreed the cup she's grasping ain't so cool, but I love the way you've caught her with her hands splayed, weblike on it.


Blogger Urban Mainframe said ... (11:04 AM) : 

Beautiful - absolutely, stunningly beautiful.

Everything about her looks right to me. Her hair is gorgeous, her complexion looks fabulous and I think she chose her clothes and shoes perfectly.

Audrey Hepburn came immediately to mind.

It would be Paris too wouldn't it. Where else but Paris.

I've fallen in love!


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

Oh, no! Someone is carrying a large paper Starbuck's cup in Paris! This should not be!


Blogger kerfuffler said ... (11:14 AM) : 

Great shot with wonderful lighting. Her black ensemble sets off the her complexion (and the foliage).


Blogger Jack Daniel said ... (11:24 AM) : 

I still don't know who she is. But she always looks really interesting.


Anonymous amber said ... (11:30 AM) : 

The shoes are a bit too aggressive for my liking, although I guess simple pumps might look a bit twee with the femininity of the whole look.
The hair is great; nice to see a classic symmetrical bob, not one of these ubiquitous angular Victoria Beckham-copycat cuts that often don't suit the girls they're on.


Blogger Fezinha said ... (11:31 AM) : 

Fabulous!!! Love everything...especially her hair!!!


Blogger Magdalena said ... (11:38 AM) : 

Great hairstyle! Seeing your pics of Paris, I'm missing this city. It's the city of my dreams...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:45 AM) : 

The hair is so amazing. Black hair always looks so shiny. It does look a little wig-y but that is just due to having an amazing cut color combo. Love it.


Blogger Catherine said ... (11:46 AM) : 

I love this shot! Her black ensemble really stands out against those autumnal colors. I want everything she has on, from her shades to those fantastic shoes! Perfectly chic!


Blogger Jx said ... (11:50 AM) : 

She always looks so immaculate, can't believe I didn't see her around Paris during fashion week :(

Blogger Rose said ... (11:51 AM) : 

Iconic. An American in Paris 2009. I love when this happens with photos! This is one of my all time fav Sartorialist moments.

I am also digging a lot of black these days, as long as it has a bit of glam texture and the right silhouette.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:51 AM) : 

THE SHOES !!!!!!!!



Blogger Nick Leonard said ... (11:53 AM) : 

I like her hair quite a bit. The shoes look so sweet with those pretty fall leaves.

Can Americans take it easy with the super-sized Starbucks cups when they are in Europe? Jeeez

Yes very dramatic, very lovely… but the pedant in me must say flaxen haired she is most certainly not! Raven haired yes. La fille aux cheveux de lin was a blond, i would image a silvery strw blond at that. lol! As always i love your photos

Doesn't she get cold? I don't know what the temperature was in Paris today, but not warm enough to walk around in something like this?

as an aside: even if it wasn't leigh -- she's still clearly american. no parisian would be caught dead carrying a cup of coffee.


Blogger ingefaer said ... (1:40 PM) : 

Flaxen hair?!
I like her delicate blouse - a good antidote to the tough-girl shoes


Blogger Michael Limaco said ... (1:48 PM) : 

Those heels are rock star!

What a great shot. Love the stark contrasts between her all-black theme and the Autumn colours. Love it!

LEIGH LEZARK! Love her. Her still is so chic, now...she looks lovely.

Funnily enough, she went to my school...


Blogger Heidi said ... (2:09 PM) : 

Love it. Her skin tone is perfect with all of that black.


Anonymous Specialward said ... (2:11 PM) : 

Being that she only wears black, you might call her a one trick pony, but she does it better than most and always looks great, so in the end I can't hate. She's hot. All the time.

Great look! Stunning.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:27 PM) : 

sleek and everything!


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

I always find images of black clothing difficult to admire on screen or in print. Especially in this pose as it's too hard to see what she is wearing, the textures, the draping or if it even fits her properly.

Apart from the horribly distracting charbucks cup (in a Paris park no less!) I like the photo anyway.


Anonymous Tobias said ... (3:03 PM) :

Dark from hair to toes. She makes it so chic. Love love her shoes. The laces-alike, the studs, the embellished heels. Fab

Blogger adelineandmimi said ... (6:37 PM) : 

Love the way the hair frames her face, and the glasses totally complete the outfit. Class.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:56 PM) : 

For me, this shot is about the black. Obviously! But, it's great how she mixes busier pieces like the top and the shoes in with the solid black of her hair, shades, and skirt. It makes the look fresh and gives it an edge.

She looks great! Who cares what brand of bean she is sipping?



Blogger Elena Wa said ... (6:59 PM) : 

Autumn....yellow leaves...


Blogger Bookworm said ... (7:05 PM) : 

I love the hair and the glasses. And I'm not a fan of platforms, but the details on those shoes are amazing. She is so naturally fab and chic and radiates style!

Leigh is just amazing, and those shoes! UNREAL!!!


Blogger MOD PAUL said ... (7:42 PM) : 

She is about the best thing in the good old U.S. right now. Great look and great style. Oi Mr S. looking foward to your book deal in L.A. next week. Think I'll roll up from the L.B.C. for that one. Safe flight my son.


Blogger sdfljslkdj said ... (8:04 PM) : 

I like how her top is sheer which makes the outfit look more chic than anything else. I love the entire outfit!!

Blogger J. said ... (9:35 PM) : 

OH YES that top is fantastic. She's so chic it hurts!


Anonymous John M. Doyle said ... (9:54 PM) : 

While everyone commented on the very obvious element (i.e., the shoes), I am rather surprised that no one commented on the lovely symmetry between the shoes and the blouse. The repetition of the dot motif is a little too studied to be purely accidental. Beyond that, the almost piano-like gloss of her black skirt and black hair (repeated in the light bouncing off the sunglasses), along with that perfect tangle of limbs leaves me wondering why all the fuss about the shoes when there is so much else to get excited about here. [For the record, I will state that I am a bona-fide shoe fanatic myself.] There is also the great joy of looking at a picture and seeing someone who clearly knows that she is aware of seeing and being seen.

I literally can not wait till I am older and can pull of this look. She can pull of all black with studs on her shoes without looking like a goth. SO chic. Perhaps the coffee, sunglasses and phone equal it out. The french do it so well.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:23 AM) : 

As I read these comments about her cup. Hey, our fault why do we have starbucks at all in Paris if we are going to complain about an American girl liking it.? Different culture, so she is right to take if she likes. When I go to NY I NEVER take Starbucks.Am always looking for my coffee and food. Great shot Sart!

It's true that cliched-cup has become the new cliched-cigarette.
