I think Holly Harnsongkram rocks these jeans in the picture here (from
). But with her coat and the boots, I can't really tell how the jeans really look.
Slim, straight and a slight taper. It's not extra slim and the taper isn't dramatic which makes it a more versatile (and classic) jean that say the cure model which is more akin to the present ultra-tight rocker fit. This comment applies to both men's and women's NS as there is no difference between them (NS is called "unisexe" in french as in "unisex" so it's supposed to be one model for men and women, women getting the smaller waist sizes...). Now that being said APC has been known to very slightly tweak their unisex models when they reach smaller (ie women) sizes to adapt to the female anatomy (less crotch space and lower rise). This might be the case but I don't remember for sure.
As for the sizing I'd really try a bunch of different sizes,23-24-25 and 26 being the most likely possibilities.
A final word of caution: if you go with vintage NS, make sure the fading beind the knees is actually beind YOUR knees, otherwise just get some raw ones and break them in yourself. I hate badly placed fading on a lady, or a men for that matter.
