My New Style Icon- Anna Dello Russo


Meet the coolest fashionista ever Anna Dello Russo! This lady is phenomenal, she's the editor at large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan :D i first noticed her outfits at streetstyle blogs like the sartorialist, jak & jill and i thought i needed to honour her outfits in a post haha.
apparently she has 4000 pairs of shoes and a fragrance of her own. Sorry Olivia Palermo.
oh, here are some random stuff i found out:

1. She writes a blog using RANDOM capitalisation, a habit FASHION Statement may consider ADOPTING. Her Twitter feed does the SAME. With added pictures of her dog in a Louis Vuitton collar. Face it, the woman's DOG is better dressed than you.

2. She owns more than 4,000 pairs of shoes. That is over 1,000 more than even the most inflated guess at Imelda Marcos's notorious collection. Respect.

3. She's going to be 50 next year. She dresses like this. More respect.

4. She has just launched a perfume called 'The scent of Anna Dello Russo'. Enough said.

5. Her rules for Christmas party dressing, touched upon by FS last week, include number five: "Wearing lots of JEWELLERY. the sound of JEWELLERY banish bad thoughts and bad ghosts."

6. She wore a watermelon on her head to New York fashion week. All together now, "I carried a watermelon ...?"

7. You can email her your fashion-related questions and this modern-day oracle will respond. Sample question from Gabriella: "Do you ever stand in front of your closet before going to an event and feel like you have nothing to wear?" FS answer: The woman has 4,000 pairs of shoes. What do YOU think, Gabriella?

8. Her front-row rules include a very firm number four: "DON'T WEAR SUNGLASSES, IF YOU NOT ARE VIP (VERY VERY IMPORTANT PERSON). IT'S IMPOLITE".

9. She has made a video of her fashion world tour that makes Ugly Betty look like a gritty documentary series.

10. She declares that "FASHION is such stuff as DREAMS are made on [sic]..." And oh, what dreams she must have.
