An "impossibly chic real woman" from Glamour's Sept. '09 issue

Today, as I quickly flipped through the Sept ’09 issue of Glamour, I happened upon a one-page feature by photographer Scott Schuman titled “5 Impossibly Chic Real Women.” I fell immediately for the unassuming style of a waif in a nude vintage lace dress and knock-around sneaks. Not exactly shabby, and not exactly chic, but utterly stylish—the way-poorer version of boho poster child, and one of my personal fashion darlings, Mary-Kate Olsen. My question: Could this style be pulled off by someone less wiry, more…rotund? Or does the look itself hinge on the loose drape of the fabric on such a thin frame? What do you think? —LML
