The term showstopper never seems appropriate in real life, as it relates to something over the top and very glittery. However, embodying that word positively, the wonderful Anna Dello Russo steps out of Ralph Lauren in New York on a glittery piece in electric blue and lemon yellow. As she crosses the street and literally stops traffic, she proves once more why she is one of the street style queens. Daring and bold in color, Anna Dello Russo gives more than a fashion shower, but a fashion aura all around her.

Introducing a new segement on The Snapshots… In Portrait.

I love it when people smile. There is no better sense of honesty and true emotion. A smile in the fashion industry is not necessarily rare but catching one in fraganti is not an often sight. Yet on a magic moment outside Valentino during Paris Fashion Week, two legends shared a moment. As they walked along the white carpet, Anna Dello Russo and Carine Roitfeld opened themselves to a shared smile. Contrasting style in a leather jacket and an off the runway Dolce & Gabbana, they almost mirror in their grand attitude. Sometimes, portraits speak larger than life.

Dramatics in detail. Coming out of Giambattista Valli and wearing Giambattista Valli, Anna Dello Russo is bold in movement. With a design piece that reveals its dramatic allure through each body movement, Anna taps into that wild trend through her zebra printed frills. Add a statement piece through her Guiseppe Zanotti X Kanye West heels and you get one animalistic outfit carried by the one and only Anna.

With the leather biker chick copied and overdone, the only way to do it successfully is to go all the way. In a tough gold studded leather jacket and a look in almost all leather, Anna Dello Russo does it again. A side that is not often as seen, yet as compelling. Tough biker chic(k) Anna. What’s not to love.

Anna\s capability to add playful to elegant is unique. From the eyes peeking through her rings to that one of a kind Fendi fur, Anna Dello Russo leaves one statement standing true: Done right, fashion is ageless.

There is so much talk about how inspiring Anna is based on her showpieces. Yet my favorite part of Anna Dello Russo is her style identity. Always some sort of symbolism characteristic to her, the jeweled cross stands for Anna’s extravagant nature and Italian culture. Deeper meanings in style.
