She looks like a cheap street walker.

Minus the pearls and shoes, at the beach, on a semi chilly or breezy day, with her mini picnic basket.... Cute! As is, not so much.

I'm impressed she had time to grab her shoes and handbag during a fire drill!

For once I'm not in full and total agreement with Claudine191. (Alert the media!).

I like it - mostly because of the soft colors. I like her hair color and the cream dress in soft contrast against it and the cream and black shoes and all the pearls and the flower and the little black bra and the little smile. It's wildly inappropriate in public, of course, but I can't help it - I like it.

Um...that's not a bra...that's a tattoo.

I think it's a beautiful long sweater/duster. Love the satin edging. Love the pearls and shoes and hair/makeup. I would totally wear it...but I'd wear some clothing under it.

She wore this to a Chanel fashion show...and considering that oft'times couture models wear a lot less on the runway, this probably isn't too bad. I think I'd prefer not seeing her nipple jewelry though.

I'd pair it with some slim black pants and lightweight longsleeved summer top.

5 for all the + RCW mentioned and -5 for forgetting her unders.

6. I like the shoes, jewelry, purse, hair, makeup, tattoo. Do not like the dress/sweater/whatever the heck that is.

I dislike it only for what's missing. A tank top and maybe shorts...just peeping through enough to know they are there, but still showing off her legs - if mine looked like that, I'd want to flaunt them too.

She could have have done so much with that. Each item she is wearing is very pretty on it's own. The main long shirt could be paired with shorts, a tank, jeans or other pants, a form fitting dress in any number of lengths, etc. You can dress it up or down, if you actually bother to dress

I am in love with the bag, and I've always adored pearls.

I think it looks like she's wearing a bathrobe.

I don't think it looks like a bathrobe, but it does make me want to start wearing my pearls with my bathrobe.

Worn another way (e.g. with something under it and more buttons fastened) I think I would like it.

I'm most impressed that RCW got the numbering right!

I think the precious little quilted Chanel bag and spectators are all wrong. She should have gone more rockstar w/ her accessories and less society matron.

But as always, she kinda pulls it off. 6.5

I was trying to figure out what was going on until I saw this, now I get it.. not a weird bra but bar through the nipple.

Why? Have I ever given the impression that I post without researching? I don't post half-c.ocked, even about fashion.

I think she rocks it. But I like her and her 'style'.
