Anna Dello Russo’s puff of white

Not many people could carry off a voluminous puff of white ostrich feathers and call it an outfit – not many people would even be game to try. But then, Anna Dello Russo isn’t known for being demure in her fashion choices. Bold as always, she attended the Marc Jacobs F/W 2012 show in YSL’s feather coat and embellished cat eye glasses.

ZZegna through Dello Russo’s eyes

What is it like to soak up the fashion week atmosphere in Milan? The interesting thing about this question is that the experience is different for everyone. So the more intriguing question might actually be, what is it like to attend a Milan fashion week show when you happen to be Anna Dello Russo? Dello Russo gets to see things that others don’t see. She’d…

Matador fashion, the Dello Russo way

Anna Dello Russo is one of the few truly bold stylists who has the conviction to wear what she puts in the pages of magazines. Though one assumes she also realises that not everyone else has the daring to wear the combinations she styles, that realisation is tied to the fact that fashion is, often, about fantasy. In the March 2012 issue of Vogue Japan,…

Selling what can’t be bought: Steven Meisel

Doesn’t matter what you think of them – tacky, attractive, ineffective or just unnecessary – fashion and beauty advertisements are special. Especially when big names get together on the same creative platform. Think Mario Testino and Kate Moss – that kind of special. These are the kind that’ll look flashy on beautifully scented pages of a glossy magazine, but when they are bookmarked and filed…

The Dello Russo signature

Anna Dello Russo, an unchallenged paragon of virtue in style, always rocks the outfit that oozes her irresistible charm and releases a refined sense of sophistication, elegance and the rich resources of her imagination. She plays a game with fashion, and she always wins, no matter what. And this time she is playing her trump card with her favorite lace statement in a look from…

A vision in white

Truth be told, not many can carry off an all-white ensemble. The balancing act of making it look classic chic and elegantly feminine is not easy. But here, Anna Dello Russo has not only nailed the look, she has also struck the 1930s chord with a modern aesthetic. I wish there was a front-on photo of this look, where her tucked-in shirt was more visible.…

Unconventional eye colour

I have, personally, a very strong attachment to liquid eyeliner. Specifically of the winged-out, cat eye kind. But using black liquid eyeliner as well as applying colourful eyeshadow doesn’t always work out for the best (for me anyway), particularly if you’re going for a contrastingly light coloured shadow and don’t have time to blend. Here’s an alternative from the pages of Vogue Nippon’s beauty supplement:…

The crowd at Chanel

Despite not attempting to fit too many people into too small a space, as did Dior, Chanel still managed to pack the entrance to the Grand Palais for their autumn 2011 showing earlier today.
