MIlan Fashion Week:Black and White

Every time I visit a new city, I find at least one lady who stands out amongst all the rest. In London there is Gitte Lee, Mme Dominique Fallecker in Paris, and now this wonderful Milanese woman. They are admired for their style,their spirit,and their grace. This woman was closing up shop when I asked if I could take her photo. She reminded me of something an older once told me, “You will always be right in black and white.”

  • What style. She looks stunning in black and white.

  • Lovely! She's fabulous.


  • Wow, stunning!

  • I'm really enjoying your unique view. The style of these ladies is undeniable and your eye for seeing their "something special" is wonderful. I only hope to carry myself with as much grace and beautiful abandon when i am in the silver stages of my life 🙂

  • She looks amazing! I especially like her shoes.

  • Black and white done right. So classy.

  • She looks absolutely beautiful and incredibly regal – the monochrome is elegant and does not overpower while the gold accessories are added creating a splendid affect (and Audrey Hepburn!) I think the dress is so light and sophisticated… and the shoes! Stunning! It is also a look that, at the same time as being interesting, seems as though it also manages to be practical and comfortable.

    I have (only very recently, unfortunately) become a sudden and huge fan of this blog. The concept is brilliant and I have found no finer proof on the entire internet that one can age without being afraid of losing style, originality or looking dowdy. I agree with Winter's comment, 'I only hope to carry myself with as much grace and beautiful abandon when I am in the silver stages of my life.'

    I take my gold rimmed tricorn off to you. 🙂

  • I love this site I will follow him in my head also:

  • Her face is striking and so young. I love the black and white colorblock for this fall.

  • Mmmh! I wonder…via Fiori Chiari? via Madonnina? Midali store? Who is she? Gorgeous!

  • nice!!

  • audrey hepburn if she were alive…
    i love this woman.

  • I have no words, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • Beyond glamorous! Every detail is beautiful.

    My goddess of choice and inspiration is Beatriz Ost. This woman runs a close second to dear Beatriz. She is definitely a real inspiration to me (and everyone else)! I second the comments about the great shoes, fun and comfortable looking. Black and white is always classic isn't it?

    Ari keep on doing what you do so well. We all love you for sharing with us. I just saw the documentary about Bill Cunningham (how dear is he?) and it reminded me of you and your work!
    Grazie molte!

  • Was just tweeting a photo of myself in some black and white jewelry – and how fantastic THIS is! She is stunning.

  • Rebecca

    This spectacular woman reminds me of another very stylish woman from California (Lubi) that you have featured. I love simple but dramatic styles accentuated with bold and unique jewelry and accessories.

  • Wow. She looks fabulous, absolutely stunning.

  • She looks beautiful! I think that's a SFK strap on her camera, right?

  • thankss

  • Great photos! She looks so young in that dress. Anyways, your blog is great. Glad I found it.

  • For my part one and all ought to look at it.

  • Classic, energetic and lovely!
