The legendary Anna Dello Russo

Let’s be honest: In the fashion world you can find a lot of people whose style, ideas and overall aura is extremely interesting. One of them though, Anna Dello Russo, seems to outstand and create her own category. Anna is an old love of mine. Long before she created her infamous accessories collection for H&M (at selected stores worldwide from the 4th of October) and  be known by almost everyone, she had already made me wonder how can a person be that fabulous. You see, Anna is not your everyday fashion maniac. She is crazy ,elegant, smart and always one step further from the rest. From her hats to her shoes , everything about her is unique. She was born in Bari, Italy as a daughter of a psychiatrist father and since she was little she was in love with fashion. When her mother told her she needed a new pair of jeans, she responded that what she really needed was a new Versace jacket. Anna has an M.A. degree in Italian Literature and Art History taken at the Bari University and attended the Domus Academy in Milan for a masters in fashion . Her career includes 18 years at Conde Nast Italia (where she was a fashion editor at Vogue and then chief editor of L’Uomo Vogue) and 6 years at Vogue Nippon as editor at large till this day. She was described by Helmut Newton as a “fashion maniac” but despite being one of the fashions elite like Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld or Daphne Guinness ,she is loud, excited and has an amazing sense of humor at what she does. Needless to say that Anna was one of the first who understood and really worked on the blogging explosion. These days, her blog is one of the most visited, she has launched a perfume with Yoox and a (accessories) collection with H&M. She is like a pop star, the so called Lady Gaga of fashion. I don’t know what the future may bring for Anna Dello Russo but one thing is for sure: it will be fabulous
