Vogue’s “Other” Anna…(Dello Russo) Does It All!
Move over Anna Wintour! As much as I love you I can’t help but have even more love for one of your fellow colleagues…Anna Dello Russo, Editor of Vogue Nippon. Feathers, leather, loud patterns, and fruit hats, as well as her extreme love for leopard are just a few of the aesthetics that make up her coveted wardrobe. There are only a few fierce fashion risks that this Anna won’t take and that’s why I can’t help but want to be her. I also couldn’t help but squeal with excitement when I realized she graced the latest cover of 10 magazine. Shot by Giampaolo Sgura, the editorial, rightfully titled The Visionaries:

Dello Russo said, “Everyone expects me to do a clothes line. It’s too obvious. I want to do the opposite.” Aside from all this, or rather on top of it, Dello Russo is often times asked by designers to grace their runways as a model. Most recently, she walked alongside models, Lindsey Wixson, Dree Hemingway and Pixie Geldof for Lanvin for H&M.
