Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

Anna Dello Russo In Altuzarra - Armani Privé Fall 2013 Couture Show

Anna Dello Russo made another stop on her haute-couture rounds, turning heads at the Armani Privé Fall 2013 show at Theatre National de Chaillot in Paris, France on Tuesday.

After showing us a repeat look at the Christian Dior Fall 2013 presentation, ‘Vogue’ Japan’s editor-at-large paraded out an adventurous Altuzarra Spring 2013 olive-green dress.

A worldly, exotic romp, the design’s draped top was smattered with embellishment and a gold-foil stamp—for that Midas touch—while the skirt was wrapped up in rows of fringe.

That Anna buckled herself into knee-grazing Gianvito Rossi for Altuzarra sandal-boots and strapped on metallic wrist cuffs only added another layer of fashion-warrior flavour to the mix.

Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture Front Row

Several stars arrived at the Hotel Des Invalides in Paris, France this afternoon for the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture presentation, with Marion Cotillard as the surprise absentee.

Jennifer Lawrence: The Oscar-winning actress and current face of Miss Dior was of course front row, getting a first look at her next red carpet look, no doubt. Jennifer selected a printed pastel-metallic guipure top with charcoal wool trousers with a stripe down one side and pleats down the other from the Resort 2014 collection. Black Dior sunglasses, shoes and a Dior fine jewelry ‘Bois de Rose’ bracelet. You are expecting me to say that I dislike the black pumps; well, I am too busy saving all my dislike for those pants. The colour, the style, the pleats: nothing about them work for me.

Miroslava Duma: After a pretty lacklustre weekend fashion-wise, Miroslava finally gives me a red carpet look I can love. The fashion editor selected a Dior Resort 2014 ivory bustier dress with blue-, orange- and pink-striped panels, which she styled with an Hermes black bag and lust-worthy blue pumps.

Olivia Palermo: The socialite, who is a regular in the front row at Dior, wore a full Dior look. Usually she marches to the beat of her own drum and will wear even high-street looks like Zara and Topshop to Fashion week; on this occasion she wore a Dior white jacket paired with a pink-and-blue organza skirt with all-Dior accessories, including cuffs on both wrists, an embellished belt, and a white clutch. I love everything bar the skirt. I almost wish the jacket was long enough to pass off as a dress.

Anna Dello Russo In Christian Dior - Gucci Spring 2014 Menswear Show

For the Gucci Spring 2014 menswear runway show in Milan, Italy this afternoon, Anna Dello Russo was centre of attention with yet another stunning, standout look.

Comments range from “fabulous” to “age inappropriate” for her Oscar de la Renta look, but I have a feeling this Christian Dior Spring 2013 frock will just get calls of “fabulous”.

Yes, it is yet another look from the most popular collection since the Stella McCartney Resort 2010 collection; however, I have to say I adore this look as much as the first.

It’s the colours of the coral sleeveless uneven-hem dress with pink lining which really brings this look alive, along with the impeccable styling.

Love or loathe her OTTness, you have to admire her love for fashion.

Anna Dello Russo In Oscar de la Renta - Salvatore Ferragamo Spring 2014 Menswear Show

Yesterday’s Spring 2014 menswear shows in Italy were punctuated by one of fashion’s strongest and zaniest personalities: Anna Dello Russo.

The perennially unpredictable editor-at-large for ‘Vogue’ Japan once again brought her signature brand of wow and whoa to the streets of Milan Fashion Week, stopping traffic in a shocking-pink, strapless top and shorts from Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2013 collection.

Always the eccentric maximalist, you could count on Anna to pick up this peppy look with a feather-embroidered top and micro shorts to flaunt her pins. However, her obsession with excess didn’t extend to the runway look’s jewellery belt, which didn’t make the cut here.

Huge and hyper-reflective aqua-tinted shades were another unexpected twist to this flamboyant foray, stealing attention from a black-and-white houndstooth clutch and flirty blue-and-white T-bar Sophia Webster sandals festooned with a ruffled pink bow.

Oh, and don’t think she didn’t plan for potential sartorial naysayers; she crossed out any criticism of her flamingo mini with evil-eye earrings.
