Did You See Garance's Post Yesterday?

Did you see Garance's post yesterday?

She ran into Sartorialist regular Michelle Jank on Sunday in Paris.

Actually, I saw Michelle too for just a brief moment - but absolutely did not recognize her. The last time I saw her was when I took the below photograph. Wow - talk about a chameleon!

I guess that's one of the traits of highly creative people: an ambition to constantly evolve.

That second pic is going in my brain bank of "inspirational outfits"...and I want that necklace!


Blogger Kesi said ... (3:32 PM) : 

She's still stunning.



Blogger eljovendario said ... (3:33 PM) : 

Beautiful pictures,



Blogger Meredith M Howard said ... (3:36 PM) : 

That is absolutely amazing. I don't think I would recognized her if she was my best friend. I wonder what prompts her to make such a tremendous change.

Blogger Martha said ... (3:37 PM) : 

Wow. I love both of these images! That is really a transformation though, I still wouldn't think they are the same person unless you told me.


Blogger ImaginaryHighHeels said ... (3:37 PM) : 

The black dress is amazing!!!

Blogger GINGER FASHION MONSTERS said ... (3:41 PM) : 

that change in style is incredible.... switching between such strong personas really proves true skill and mastering of syle - not just your own, but that of other's too. Impressive.


Blogger Kathleen said ... (3:46 PM) : 

I do love the variety, the invention, the re-invention.

Very dramatic dress and I love it!


Anonymous caterina said ... (3:58 PM) : 

the devil is in the details: the ring of the more recent picture is the heritage of the former mindset ...


Blogger Mallory said ... (3:58 PM) : 

her dress is gorgeous.


Blogger BaronessVonVintage said ... (3:59 PM) : 

STUNNING, but wow, what a transformation, too!


Anonymous Jenna said ... (4:01 PM) : 

I love it when people can change their look so drastically while still keeping true to some of their inner elements.


Blogger nakedqueen said ... (4:08 PM) : 

love this necklace so much!


Blogger The PvdH Journal said ... (4:09 PM) : 

What an incredibly special persona. Thanks for the link Scott, it made Garance's post even better.



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

Total contrast, but she looks great in both.

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

Are you SURE that's the same person???


Blogger Sing of Singature Style said ... (4:32 PM) : 

Wow, looks like two different women. Excellent style both ways though.


Blogger fashion and frank said ... (4:46 PM) : 

I love that she has changed her look that much - it is amazing! I guess a new haircut deserves a new look and she is clearly very creative (she designs jewellery i think) - top post! x

Super power!!!

Wow! That's pretty amazing! Love both outfits. That black dress is so pretty!


Blogger Marcel Da Chump said ... (5:22 PM) : 

Her transition from pastels

to charcoal on the

canvas of her life-- inspires.


Blogger Rachel said ... (5:27 PM) : 

That dress is very Audrey Hepburn


Blogger Sarah said ... (5:32 PM) : 

Stunning dress


Anonymous Susan said ... (5:33 PM) : 

Really great change. Both looks are super. But her eyes are sad.


Anonymous Style Tone Zagreb said ... (5:34 PM) : 

I love this red necklace and her attitude is amazing!!


Blogger DENISE said ... (5:44 PM) : 

Wow! Looks like a completely different person! I love her style.

Goodness that dress! how adorable.

Blogger Helen said ... (6:19 PM) : 

Magnificent dress! Love the pumps, keeping the outfit unfussy


Blogger lollipop4598 said ... (6:25 PM) : 

I like both outfits. But the dark hair and neutral palette is much better. God change. I suppose its mostly a hair change, and then everything else went with it.


Anonymous Marcela said ... (6:32 PM) : 

I did see Garance's post from yesterday and I am shocked. She does not seem like the same person.
Wow, what a difference.


Blogger Project Curve said ... (7:24 PM) : 

oh yes i saw her there,never would have recognised her!!


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

That is quite a transformation! No wonder you didn't recognize her.

Blogger M said ... (7:38 PM) : 

I cannot believe that is the same person - just wonderful.
I already commented on the post yesterday but I may as well credit her beauty on here, too. Stunning dress.


Blogger Suzy Wu said ... (7:46 PM) : 

or vise versa --> highly AMBITIOUS people have the CREATIVITY to constantly evolve.


hehe =)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:46 PM) : 

Both photos are beautiful and stunning, I particularly love the first look, that dress is a stunner. Though she looks much more sad and almost ill in the recent photograph. As though something tragic aged her- But again, its a beautiful look none the less


Blogger The Foolish Aesthete said ... (7:48 PM) : 

I she was so lovely in Garance's post. Hardly recognizable from your photo, but she is equally singular in her style!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:30 PM) : 

I love the ability to evolve in fashion. Getting stuck in one image can really limit one's personal style. She looks gorgeous in both pictures!


Blogger Yajaira said ... (8:45 PM) : 

lovely dress


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (8:50 PM) : 

Yes that's definitely Michelle Jank in both pics. The neck piece is her own. She has been creating them for years. Look her up - she's an amazing designer. Elaine

the black vintage.......looks heavy maybe on stage not for me

actually i don't care for her as a blonde either


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:49 PM) : 

That crinoline skirt is the bee's knees. All six of them.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:51 PM) : 

I really enjoy this post. It's so interesting to see the change in her style and hair. Her dress is also the cutest/edgiest thing ever, which is probably why I adore it so!

Funky post.

She is so amazing, creates adorable jewellery and owns whatever style she adapts. Was the latter pic when she was stylist for Tsubi?
Her hair is perfect


Anonymous Jordana @ White Cabana said ... (12:29 AM) : 

Woah - wild transformation. Both beautiful images & looks.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:51 AM) : 

My two adult daughters tell me women cut and restyle their hair after a big breakup. Classic case?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:55 AM) : 

Wow! Talk about a total transformation! I absolutely love her look in the second picture, it's effortless and charming.



Blogger Unknown said ... (2:02 AM) : 

Great contrast! The face seems to me to tell the same story though, and I'm sort of thinking it's not all happy. The change might be a positive attempt to evolve, but the face makes me think she's running away or trying to be distracted. She's definitely a strong person though. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy your work.


Blogger Nomadic D. said ... (2:04 AM) : 

Wow, I can't believe that's the same woman! I mean, of course I can, but it is such a ballsy and amazing transformation! Makes me want to go chop off my hair or dye it platinum or something!


Anonymous jeanne berre said ... (2:49 AM) : 

Very nice photo. Super model


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:16 AM) : 

Minor quibble: I think the light makeup with the dominating black hair and dress is overwhelming. A touch of color to the lips and cheeks would've made her look livelier. This is a minor nitpick, though. She is quite beautiful and stylishly put together otherwise. It takes a lot of courage to reinvent yourself like that. It's nice to see somebody so in touch with their creative aspect.

Wow!!! that´s reinveinting style, i would´t recognize her i you didn´t told us!!!

She worked on this year’s L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival and was amazing! Check out her style on the runway here

Loving the lace dress and the bag, it loks like the "wu bag"

Cool Australian chick. Great photo's xxx


Blogger portoalt said ... (5:58 AM) : 

Personally I don't find such radical changes very interesting. I love it when people have a very defined sense of personal style and stick to it throughout the years... Of course there's room for improvement and evolution, but the foundations are the same. But that's just me! She proves however that she's a very creative person!

Love the second pic. The bracelets make the outfit for me. And the nonchalant rips in the jeans..

the second look is so colourful and full of life! altough her face expression is more serious, she looks so much more alive!!.. Good job!

Lovely shoot.

Super fabulous! Love that. How amazing!



Blogger The Girl Next Door said ... (7:05 AM) : 

Wow i would not have recognised her either!!! especially due to the lack of her usual fabulous jewelery adornment!


Blogger doris day said ... (7:20 AM) : 

An inspirational Aussie :) always loved her style, she's an icon!


Anonymous Lauren said ... (2:32 PM) : 

Two beautiful looks for the day. I think i prefer her as a blonde, but the fact that she can pull of a brunette bob as well says a lot!

As a fellow IU apparel merchandising student with a passion for fashion and photography and the common drive to combine the two, posts like these are inspiring.

WOW what a change. I loved both of the styles, but the black dress is so fab! She sure is a kameleon;)

Love the black dress! Beautiful!
Fashion comes in many forms...

I'm hoping that Scott didn't mean chameleon. A chameleon is a creature that has capacity to blend into or match its surroundings (to not stand order to protect themselves). This woman has evolving and dynamic personal style. Not exactly a chameleon. :)

I had the pleasure to work with Michelle on a shoot in Australia. She is incredibly talented and a super friendly person!

This looks like two totally different women but she is stunning in the black dress. I can't help but wonder where she's going?

from 1980's to 1950' way of a cut with colour...and clothing to match the decade.
