In Love with a Style Icon: Anna Dello Russo

What does fashion need most? Colors, fabrics, cuts? Models, designers, marketing? True! But what does fashion ULTIMATELY need to turn it all into history and make us all boys and girls, men and women altogether want to die for an item or, for that matter, for the whole signature story behind it? Think in terms of Givenchy and Audrey Hepburn, Catherine Deneuve and Yves Saint Laurent, Jackie O. and Gucci or Lady Diana and Christian Dior. These are the style icons! And they’re what the designers themselves and the whole fashion industry are after nowadays. They influence trends, catwalks, street style, magazine covers and books. Among them, our very favorite Anna Dello Russo. She’s 47,  has worked for Vogue Italia, she’s now the editor-at-large for Vogue Japan and never misses a Fashion Week.  She bought her first Fendi bag at 13 and she now has 4000 pairs of shoes and 250 black tuxedo jackets. She’s far from being a contemporary version of Sleeping Beauty but she’s more than we need in terms of fashion and style. She has just launched her own perfume called “Beyond” and is preparing to write a book. Here she is in an editorial for the November issue of W magazine, shot by Juergen Teller at her Milan home which consists of two adjacent one-bedroom apartments, one for Dello Russo and one for her clothes. Well, what can we say? A style icon’s gotta do what a style icon’s gotta do:) And she’s definitely one of them! A NEW style icon for a brand new era.

    She is the true embodiment of style. Oh, and she’s planning on recording a music album, just because nobody expects her to do that. Originality is to be celebrated, worn, smelled.. and sung at its best!
