Fashion Parody - Anna Dello Russo

well, it had to happen didn't it? 
Anna is becoming more & more famous with each
passing day, and when you're really famous you launch a fragrance !!
I will, of course, purchase the fragrance !

For those of you familiar with Anna, none of this is news, it's just renewed news...
which is what we do today, with re-tweeting, re-posting, & re-trashing
stuff which was of absolutely zero interest 10 years ago.

Being in fashion most of my life, Anna is known to me, but I certainly do not
understand her, even though I love her...I love her aggressive
"knock-your-socks-off" attitude, her wearing completely inappropriate apparel
anywhere, and others beginning to accept this outrageous behaviour.

caught by Scott, the Sartorialist, in Dolce & Gabbana...
now tell me, ladies, is this not just completely laughable?

She said to Scott:
THE CLOTHES help me to overcome
my insecurities.

Like the different movie-roles for an
actress,THE CLOTHES help me to overcome
my shyness,
cause I can play with the different FACES
of personality and I EMPATHIZE
with them.
SCOTT is phenomenal to capture
precisely this CAMOUFLAGE of myself"

& OMG, she has it in BLACK too.  worn with red underpinnings. 
the other black one is as shown on the runway

please tell me, in real life, where would anyone wear this
outfit?  except to a masked ball in Venice?

with her assistants, she is in Lanvin...

Balmain jacket, easily $15,000

my question:
how can someone wear apparel like this,
true pieces of art, and look so scaggy?
Christina, do you know?

Once described by Helmut Newton as a "fashion maniac",
Anna Dello Russo is currently the Editor At Large
and creative consultant for Vogue Japan.

Anna spent 18 years at Conde Nast Italia starting as
a Fashion Editor at Vogue Italia she went on to become Editor of
L'Uomo Vogue from 2000-2006.

Anna was born in Bari in Southern Italy, and now lives in Milan with
her dog Cucciolina.  She is an avid collector of fashion and jewellery and
describes herself as a passionate fashionista.

 ......says she has over 4000 pairs of shoes
(a few more than I have dammit)

She must be independently wealthy, as not even the elite of the fashion
industry are given the number of outfits & accessories she has, she
stays in The Ritz in Paris, has 2 apartments in Milan, 1 for her clothes
only &  is always & ever in front of cameras...she is now the
epitomy of  "street style" worldwide.  :) 
 It is thought that she never wears an outfit twice.
For one day in my life
I would like to have the ability to think as she does,
just one day....
but then, I remembered, there are days I get my hair done
(apparently, she doesn't),
have lunch with my friends, give advice to the lovelorn,
confer with my children, cook dinner, plan parties, go to football games,
watch my favorite TV shows,  love my doggies, sweep, dust & vacuum,
drive all over town looking for the  most spectacular gift for my girlfriends,
and once all that is done,
I write this blog so I can tell you all about it.
