Anna Dello Russo In Prada – Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

Anna Dello Russo In Prada - Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture Front Row

What is fashion week without a sighting of Anna Dello Russo?

Love her or hate her attention-seeking ways, the fashionista is always ready to shock and awe.

Before taking her front row seat at Christian Dior’s Spring 2014 show, the editor-at-large for Vogue Nippon was spotted wearing a Prada Spring 2014 rainbow hued red-collared coat featuring embellished detailing.

Many of you were slightly disappointed that Michelle Dockery’s Prada dress was sans embellishment, but of course Anna would wear the runway look.

Anna’s choice of hat can often be perplexing (remember the dunce’s hat she wore to the Michael Kors event last year?) but this time the pink fur hat was tame by her standards.

An orange bag and Chanel white embroidered boots featuring a black toecap rounded out her look.

There is no middle ground when it comes to Anna Dello Russo’s style, so do you love it or hate it?

Who Wore Saint Laurent Better…Anna Dello Russo or Katy Perry?

Who Wore Saint Laurent Better Anna Dello Russo or Katy Perry

Anna Dello Russo wore a floral Saint Laurent Fall 2013 dress with a pink belt and heavily embellished, studded black boots, to the Tory Burch Spring 2014 show in September during New York Fashion Week.

Katy Perry wore the same flirty frock while attending a John Mayer concert at the Hollywood Bowl in October. She paired it with tights, a black belt, black biker jacket and a Chanel shoulder bag.

Both tried to edge up the rose-printed dress with leather accessories, but the look still felt a bit too twee for Anna. Katy’s look wins for me.

Michael Kors Milan Cocktail Party

Michael Kors Milan Cocktail Party

Michael Kors hosted a cocktail party at the Corso Vittorio Emanuele store in Milan, Italy yesterday evening.

Bar Refaeli: The model looked stunning wearing a Michael Kors Resort 2014 optic-white guipure-lace tunic and floor-grazing trouser combo styled with a white belt and a black-and-white Michael Kors ‘Hutton’ envelope clutch.

Carmen Kass: The model, who has walked many Michael Kors runway shows, provided the bombshell moment wearing a Michael Kors Resort 2014 open back dress with the same silver embroidery we saw on Katy Perry’s gown yesterday. She continued to shimmer with silver python sandals and a silver python clutch from the same collection.

Anna Dello Russo: The Vogue Nippon editor-at-large is back to her wacky-hat-wearing ways. Clearly her black-and-taxicab-yellow gown from the Michael Kors Fall 2013 collection wasn’t enough to garner attention, so she also donned a Piers Atkinson dunce’s hat with a furry pompom to ensure all eyes were on her. Anna styled her look with a gold Chanel bag and multi-coloured strappy sandals, which I love. You may remember that Kerry Washington wore this dress to the MTV Movie Awards. The majority of you disliked this look then; how do you feel now that it has been Dello-Russoed?

Anna Dello Russo In Anthony Vaccarello – ‘Mademoiselle C’ Party

Anna Dello Russo In Anthony Vaccarello - 'Mademoiselle C' Party

Anna Dello Russo attended the ‘Mademoiselle C’ cocktail party held at Pavillon Ledoyen in Paris during fashion week yesterday evening.

The editor and street-style star wore her second Anthony Vaccarello dress within a week, this time snagging a Spring 2014 look fresh off the runway.

Last time out, she wore a risqué dress during the day to sit front row at Dries van Noten; this time the event is more appropriate, but I don’t know how I feel about seeing where Anna’s tan lines end via that waist-high slit lined with gold buttons.

Tom Ford metallic-gold gladiator boots, a gold cuff and signature sleek straight tresses completed her look.

Anna Dello Russo @ Paris Fashion Week Part II

ADR 1

Fashion month wouldn’t be half as entertaining without Anna Dello Russo, so let’s catch up with our favourite fashion editor.

Christian Dior: Anna Dello Russo has been a fan of Fausto Puglisi long before the likes of Lily Collins and Bella Thorne fell for the designer’s charms. Once again she donned a Spring 2014 look fresh off the Milan runway, selecting a blue-and-black dress with a sculptured flared skirt with sequin palm-tree embellishments, styled with her favourite Tom Ford sandals.

Valentino: The quirk factor has been missing from Anna’s street-style repertoire for a few seasons – remember the season she loved wearing fruit on her head? Here her love for fancy hats returns, donning a black cap with Mickey Mouse ears with her Valentino Fall 2013 black-and-white look featuring Valentino black dress with a contrasting leather collar and cuffs with the Valentino patent-leather-and-suede T-bar pumps which are a favourite among the fashion set.

Celine: Having worn a top-to-toe Celine look last week, Anna selected another Pre-Fall 2013 look, donning a loose-fitted suit featuring a double-breasted blazer accented with gold buttons styled with black shoes with a gold-metal plate and her straw boater.

Givenchy: Anna jumped on the Bambi bandwagon at Givenchy. Like Lily Collins, she also opted to wear her sweater as a dress, adding a studded belt.

Anna Dello Russo’s Four Looks In One Day

Anna Dello Russo's Four Looks In One Day

Following her head scratcher from the previous day, Anna Dello Russo was back on fine form taking to her playground with four separate looks in one day.

While you are saying “who’s got that kinda time?”, let’s dissect the looks.

Balenciaga: Anna kick-started her day wearing a leather Celine Pre-Fall 2013 mini dress styled with both the oversized Celine belt and the dual-colour lace-up flatforms that this look was styled with in the look book.  Adding her own creativity, she styled the look with a straw boater, a black clutch and a Lanvin ‘Happy’ gold necklace.

Balmain: For quick-change number two she wore a floral Valentino Fall 2012 flirty frock with contrasting white collar and cuffs.  This is my least favourite of the looks as it is far too twee for Anna.  She should leave this for the likes of Miroslava Duma.  Also, the styling doesn’t work for me.  Not the bag and especially not the shoes.

Lanvin: By nightfall, Anna really got into her stride.  She wore a head-to-toe perfect look, mixing a Lanvin Fall 2013 strapless butterfly-print dress with a contrasting black-and-nude ponyskin belt which I find really enticing.  Plus she went the distance adding an opulent necklace, a two-tone clutch and black strappy sandals.

Moncler Dinner: While most probably went from the Lanvin show to the Moncler party without passing ‘Go’, Anna nipped back to her hotel for her fourth and final look of the day.  Possibly saving the best for last, she put on her silver sparkling heels to dazzle partygoers in her fresh-off-the-runway Fendi Spring 2014 look, which featured a crystal-embroidered mini skirt and a sheer top with broken-effect red pieces.

The evening looks are preferred over the day looks.  I think I slightly favour the Lanvin over the Fendi, but only by half a per cent.
