Red Carpet Fashion Awards

After the Gucci Fall 2011 presentation we spotted Anna Dello Russo entertaining the paparazzi and style bloggers.

A blogger papped the ‘Runway to Sidewalk’ Queen in her natural habitat wearing a colourful Balenciaga Fall 2007 jacket.

She paired her jacket with red leggings, a pink Bottega Veneta clutch and Prada wedges.

Only Anna can slam all these colours together and make it work.

When it comes to fashion these two women are fearless.

Anna Dello Russo was the first to wear this Kermit green Emilio Pucci Fall 2010 feathered coat.

A blogger took this photo of Anna whilst we waited to get into the Emilio Pucci Spring 2011 show during Milan Fashion Week.

Before the real show, we saw the ‘Anna show’. Street style photographers snapped their favourite subject as she stopped traffic in order to create her own runway.

Her Bottega Veneta heels complemented her coat perfectly and I adore those turquoise drop earrings.

Fergie wore the same coat when she was spotted at the ‘Red Bull F1 Black Eyed Peas Secret Concert’ in London last week.

She teamed her dress with those Jimmy Choo ‘Ciara’ heels we first saw on Leighton Meester.

Both look great, but Fergie’s coat overwhelms her slightly and I prefer Anna’s accessories so she wins for me.

At today’s Alberta Ferretti Spring 2011 presentation I was seated in between Byran Boy and Anna Dello Russo.

Talk about about making me a fashion sandwich.

The true style icon that is Anna Dello Russo was the sweetest person I’ve ever met.

I think she remembered me from London when I took her picture because she smiled and said hi to me before taking her seat.

She was wearing an off-the-shoulder YSL Spring 2010 dress which is embroidered with strawberries.

I had to ask her about the hat. She said she likes to come up with something different.

So many people take her picture that she doesn’t want anyone to look at a picture of her and think “oh she’s done that before”.

I think she takes her “job” as a style icon very seriously, but in a very tongue-and-cheek way hence the cherry hat.

When I asked her what’s next she said “fromage”.

Now that will be interesting.

Whilst in Milan she will be styling for Moschino so therefore she may not have the time to take in many other shows.

She told me that she’s very much looking forward to Paris. I’m looking forward to seeing her cheesy hat.

It was mostly an all black affair on the red carpet for the “Dolce & Gabbana’s Men’s 20th Anniversary” held during Menswear Fashion Week in Milan on Saturday.

Monica Bellucci looked like panther purring in her black satin and lace Dolce & Gabbana gown.

Peaches Geldof wore the same Dolce & Gabbana fringed dress from the Spring 2010 collection we’ve seen thrice before on the red carpet.

Penelope Cruz, Dita von Teese and Eastenders actress Emer Kenny have all worn this dress with varying levels of success.

With her hair worn up in a chic updo Rachel Weisz dazzled on the red carpet wearing a sequin strapless Dolce & Gabbana mini dress with black strappy sandals.

Juliette Binoche wore a black satin ruched Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress paired with a black crop blazer and black satin pumps.

Stefano Gabbana, Camilla Alves, Matthew McConaughey, Letizia Moratti, Giovanni Terzi, Domenico Dolce all posed together on the red carpet prior to the event.

Camilla and Letizia Moratti clearly didn’t get the all black memo.

Camilla wore a white chiffon Dolce & Gabbana cocktail dress with jewel detail, whilst Letizia wore a red satin Dolce & Gabbana dress.

Margherita Missoni was my favourite on this red carpet, mixing her mustard leopard print Dolce & Gabbana dress with leopard print heels.

Eva Herzigova wore a leopard print and polka dot Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 ensemble.

I’m usually more excited about what Anna dello Russo wears, but I don’t feel that on this occasion.

Her fringed black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2010 dress is very subdued for someone with such a daring fashion sense.

Other guests at the event included Morgan Freeman, Chace Crawford, and Nick McCarthy from Franz Ferdinand.

Surprisingly Madonna wasn’t there.

When I attended the Giuseppe Zanotti Fall 2010 Presentation on Saturday during Milan Fashion Week, I was really excited to see Anna Dello Russo.

For the fashion director and creative consultant for Vogue Nippon every week is fashion week, as her style is absolutely impeccable.

She is very used to having her photo taken by style bloggers such as Tommy Ton and Garance Dore, which is why she was happy for me to take this photo.

The style icon was wearing a Miu Miu Spring 2010 embellished dress with a yellow collar and an orange detail on the front.

She paired her dress with a pink embellished clutch and nude heels which elongated her legs.

Last year I shared my admiration for the Anna Dello Russo in Star Spotlight.

Here is a short video of Anna changing into several outfits during Paris Fashion Week.

I thought to myself whilst watching, why did they sub-title this video?

Surely everyone is too busy drooling over the clothes to take in what she’s saying.

If this is only her Paris Fashion Week closet, just imagine what her closet at home must look like.

*Sighs*

That blue Balmain dress still makes me ache.
