    loving the hints of red:)

  • Nee

    love everything but those fugly shoes!

  • Tonya

    I agree with Nee those shoes are not cute imo but other than that she’s FLY!

  • gpc

    OK, but what is the bag? Lanvin, Derek Lam????

    • gpc

      duh, never mind – i see the credit. sorry….

    • Yes! Derek Lam, we linked it above :)

  • lchua

    absolutely love the matching red of her lips and purse! although in the article the bag looks a bit more orangey.

  • Beth S.

    Besides hating those shoes, are those pants the correct length? And fitting properly? Otherwise, rather stunning.

  • Jojo

    The shoes are a little over the top. The bag is wicked cute. The red is super hot. Looking for more in red here too http://bit.ly/hk27Yi

    i guess i am the only one that thinks this is really bad? high waisted pants that does nothing for her legs (thighs) and a shorter then her suit jacket ‘fur vest’ that feels like cropped but not quite there? 3/4ths? and a suit with fur vest is a bit daring but this does nothing for her body shape to flatter..

    the shoes are cute but not with that outfit (suit specifically)

    too many (different) trends on one body. that doesn’t go together..i mean theres a way to make it work, i always believe, theres no need to be matchy matchy but that isn’t the right way to go about it.

  • bb

    Pants not the right length….and those shoes….ugly! LOVING THE RED!!!!

  • Licha

    Shoes are UGLY, pants are SHORT, otherwise looks good

    • Alana

      Love the entire look! And I adore the shoes, anyone know who makes them?

      • This is going to sound crazy, but from the color on the underside, I’d guess they’re Alaia. Don’t know for sure, though.

  • 19yearslater

    Not my favorite of the red accent looks. She’s dressed all in tan, my least favorite color.

  • Merve

    The shoes and pants are awful.

  • Pam

    The pants are awful. Too short and don’t flatter her.

  • edoardo

    Really,r eally cool and feminine look wow!!


  • Chris

    I have to agree with Whit and others, she is wearing too many trends. The trousers are too short and the shoes are actually fun, but in combination with this outfit, they look terrible.
    Also, her hair is sleek and her make up business perfect, and suddenly the fur vest and these hippie shoes?
    However, I love the handbag and the matching lipstick. That is indeed cool.

  • Musette

    She looks vaguely silly but I absolutely love the bag (and love the lips and hair). Imagine how stunning she would’ve looked in a less ‘trendy’ outfit!

  • Mochababe73

    I think that the pants would look better with the right pair of shoes.
    Other than the footwear, I actually love this and would wear it in a minute.
    Would happen to know who the designer shades are made by?

  • gpc

    Mochababe 73, my guess is that the shades are Ray-Ban, but someone please correct me if I am wrong…

  • Mash

    Am I the only one that thinks she looks a bit like Madonna?

  • Noway

    I don’t think she looks like Madonna, more like a nightmare….

  • Staci

    She looks fabulous!

  • annabelle

    omg gorgeous!!! hahah

    she does look like madonna too

  • Jen

    Wow… her look is simply to die for! I officially feel frumpy!

  • Marian

    I’m good with the bag and the lipstick. The outfit is not good. The slacks are too short, the shoes don’t do anything for the pants suit, and the dead animal she’s wearing would look better on its former occupant. Sorry.

  • chloehandbags

    Nice colours, but those cropped flared trousers are not flattering.

    Make her legs look really short (and I’m sure they’re not short, really!).

    Whatever she’s wearing on her ankles isn’t helping, either (thick, slouchy socks?) – they make her ankles look swollen…

    Things like thick, slouchy socks and legwarmers are great, but they definitely need to be worn over trousers, not under!

  • chloehandbags

    On closer inspection, it would appear that the swollen ankle-look may be caused by part of the boot, itself, rather than thick socks?

    Either way, you should definitely not wear anything that makes your ankles look thick under cropped flares.

    Actually, IMHO, one should simply not wear cropped flares, at all – but, I apreciate that that may well be more of a personal preference?

  • chloehandbags

    ^ appreciate.

  • Sohini

    I thought the sme thing about the shoes and pants being too short, but if you pick up a Vogue, the models wear the same kind of things. Her out is okay for the office and has gotten a lot of attention outside the office. I bet she’s happy with the attention.

  • Jenny

    I would say.. I love the whole look. The clogs, harmonizes the fur vest and the tan suit, with a hint of the red to make it interesting. :)

  • BooIn

    High fashioned!

  • bethny

    loveeee the whole look … mix and mach the suite and the fur … nude and grey .. then finish it up with hot red … PERFECTION

  • Lauren

    Vlad – I would just like to say that your photographs are gorgeous!!! Whether you are photographing a stranger on the street or one of your wife’s amazing bags, you have a great eye. Loving the photos from Fashion Week – keep up the spectacular work!

  • B

    Senior Fashion Market Editor Harper’s Bazaar ? I wonder what she was thinking when she choose this Outfit?
