#Fashion Crush- Anna Dello Russo (@annadellorusso)

 When discussing a high next level sense of style, it wound be hard not to acknowledge the flamboyant, over the top, super glamorous spectacle that is Anna Dello Russo.

As the editor-at-large of Vogue Nippon(Japan), Anna Dello Russo utilizes every opportunity to step out in the most coveted runway looks. A true fashion darling, Russo has become renown for never wearing the same outfit twice.  Once an outfit is worn, it is then archived at her other apartment, which was only purchased to house her ever plentiful wardrobe. And the born and bred Italian never disappoints.  Adopting the aesthetic of her homeland, Anna Dello Russo, the constant maximalist, can always be spotted in a full runway look and one of her signature fascinators.  I can’t help but to admit that I can respect the lady for her dedication to fashion.  To commit to never wearing the same thing twice must take as much diligence as it does money.  When asked why she doesn’t like to repeat looks she playfully exclaims in her Italian accent: “How else are you gonna please the blogger?”

With a major influence on the fashion world, it was no wonder that the fashion chain, H&M, looked to Anna Dello Russo to collaborate with them on a limited edition collection of accessories back in 2013.   The playful, wacky, yet elegant collection of bracelets, earrings, and shoes were a true representation of the fashion diva’s unique style.

A jet setting life, a neverending the wardrobe, and a white hot career, Anna Dello Russo has a life that many sit up at night and dream about.  But when asked if she could only save one outfit in the fire which would she do. Anna Dello Russo had a surprising answer;  “I wouldn’t save an outfit only shoes because I always felt like I could be naked but only with the right pair of shoes.”
