Anna Dello Russo In Anthony Vaccarello - Front Row @ Dries van Noten

Anna Dello Russo was spotted headed to the Dries van Noten Spring 2014 show during Paris Fashion Week yesterday afternoon.

The fashion-editor-at-large has never been shy with her street-style choices and I have championed most of them, but I have to say this look did make me raise my eyebrows.

Anna wore a should-only-be-worn-after-dark Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2013 one-sleeve dress featuring silver grommets going down one side, revealing her pants (thank God she was wearing panties).

Never one to water down a runway look, I wish the grommet panel had a nude lining.

Sexy Tom Ford sandals and a gold Bottega Veneta clutch completed her look.

Do you love Anna for continuing to be so bold, or do you draw the line at revealing panties at a 3pm show?

Anna Dello Russo In Gucci, Dsquared² & Celine - Milan Fashion Week Day 1

Anna Dello Russo attended three shows during the first day of Milan Fashion Week, so of course the editor gave us three fabulous wardrobe changes.

Gucci: Seated alongside Blake Lively, Anna wore a Gucci Made to Measure suit from Lapo Elkann’s capsule collection. The cream wool one-button tuxedo with contrasting black peak lapels and a white cotton pleated-front tuxedo shirt was styled with a sleek black silk bowtie, a pair of black velvet Gucci heels and Miu Miu Rasoir sunglasses. Anna works this menswear look so well. I am enamoured of every piece of the look – even the quirky bowtie and geeky glasses.

Dsquared²: For her second show of the day she changed into another suit, this time in black by Dsquared². Keeping the Miu Miu Rasoir glasses, she opted for a smaller bowtie on this occasion and leather shorts, with her chic carryon being a Valentino ‘Rockstud’ bag.

Alberta Ferretti: For her final show of the day Anna wore a Celine Fall 2013 light-grey cashmere clean-lined wool dress that hugged the waist and featured tied sleeves. Keeping both her glasses and clutch from DSquared2, she added yet another quirk via her Mohawk black sandals.

I have to say I adore all three looks, but the Celine has to be my favourite. What could’ve been a so-so look is enlivened by the accessories.

Estee Lauder 'Modern Muse' Fragrance Launch Party Red Carpet Roundup

Here is a roundup of the rest of the attendees at the Estee Lauder ‘Modern Muse’ Fragrance Launch Party held at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City yesterday evening.

Joan Smalls: The model snagged the first look from the Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 collection, wearing a lavender-and-ivory strapless dress with light embroidery. The only thing I would change about the look is the heavy Casadei pumps.

Hailee Steinfeld: The young actress wore a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2014 navy floral satin dress with a pleated skirt styled with a navy cardi and brown ankle-strap sandals. Had she opted for better heels and ditched the cardi this would’ve been a more memorable look.

Hilary Rhoda: Like Joan, she also wore a Prabal Gurung look, selecting a sexy one-shoulder ivory frock from the designer’s Fall 2013 collection featuring a sculptural ruffled hem and gold baroque border. Jimmy Choo ‘Besso’ black-and-gold sandals, tousled tresses and a gold clutch completed her look. She was by far the best dressed at this event for me.

Street Style - Day 6 - New York Fashion Week Spring 2014

Anna Dello Russo and Giovanna Battaglia made quite the pairing, as they entered the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 show together on Tuesday during New York Fashion Week.

Although her Oscar de la Renta Spring 2013 striped gown has already been seen on Fan Bingbing and Jelena Ristic, Anna flaunted it anyway. The ‘Vogue Japan’ fashion editor styled her Oscar differently with rows of bangles and the ‘La Grand Odalisque Masterpiece Pendant’ necklace by Noor Fares fine jewelry.

Still, I couldn’t help but wonder why this unorthodox fashion chameleon couldn’t find a gown that hadn’t made not one, but two, prior appearances. But such is her unpredictable charm.

Meanwhile, Giovanna gave us a Prada 2013 off-the-shoulder plaid dress. The stylista pared down the runway look’s sassy-schoolgirl ways by skipping the red sweater and by adding some retro flair with a brown leather belt and black T-strap Gucci pumps.

Do you like Anna and Giovanna’s pattern play?

Front Row @ Tory Burch Spring 2014

Tory Burch’s Spring 2014 show, held today during New York Fashion Week at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center, saw a charming and fresh set of exits parading down the watery-blue catwalk. The ladies in the front row launched their own charm offensive, too.

Emmy Rossum: The actress was the epitome of preppy-chic in her navy-blue Tory Burch Resort 2013 ‘Sandy’ lace-embellished sweater and ‘Davis’ leather leggings. She adorably styled the look with Tory Burch’s ‘Gracie’ pumps, the ‘Sparkle’ square frame clutch—and a perfect red lip. But her best accessory may have been her camera, as she snapped away documenting all the runway action.

Rashida Jones: Wearing a veritable garden bouquet, the actress put on a blooming ‘Kaley’ dress that also hailed from the Tory Burch Resort 2013 collection. Pointy, black gladiator-inspired heels, as well as a bold red clutch and crimson lippie, were punchy if not slightly harsh counterpoints to the pastel mini-frock.

Anna Dello Russo: The fashionably eccentric editrix skipped the Tory Burch trend, instead showing us a Saint Laurent Fall 2013 dress. The pink rose-patterned frock was just too twee, even with its black bow and those heavily embellished, studded black boots, which couldn’t put the rock star in this look.

Anna Dello Russo

Leave it to drama kings Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to top off the recent haute couture shows with an elaborate flourish. The design duo orchestrated ‘Ballo in Maschera,’ an extravagant Venetian masquerade ball held in the halls of the historic Palazzo Pisani Moretta along the Grand Canal last Saturday. A collection of brilliantly costumed guests, each having received a mask created by the designers, arrived by gondola or boat to celebrate the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda Fall Winter 2013/14 presented in Venice, Italy.

Anna Dello Russo: ‘Understated’ is not in this ‘Vogue’ Japan editor’s vocabulary, so it’s only natural that she put the costume in this costume party with a spirited ship fascinator atop her expansive wig. Flaunting a period costume with layers and layers of ruffles and piles of frou, ADR was definitely the fashion queen of the evening.
