Anna Dello Russo Fall 2013 Fashion Week

Anna Dello Russo
Fall 2013 Fashion Week Style Diary

There are those who play it safe and there are those who play with fire...and in the world of high fashion, Anna Dello Russo holds all the matches. The Vogue Japan editor knows how to make a bold statement with her larger-than-life style, wearing haute-off-the-runway pieces as simply as most of us would a pair of skinny jeans. Even at 50, she outstyles most fashionistas half her age with her eye-catching ensembles and impressive figure.


A paparazzi darling, style maven, creative consultant, trend-starter and blogger icon, Anna's eccentric outfits and flamboyant accessories set her apart from the rest of the fashion pack. She always keeps us guessing as to what she will come up with next, experimenting with the outlandish & avant-garde. Although not everyone's cup of fashion tea, Anna has to be admired for her brazen approach towards clothes, never afraid to take risks. Her insatiable passion for this material art always shines through in whatever she wears (however eccentric it may be).

These are some of Anna's most interesting looks from this past Fall 2013 Fashion Week season.


Anna wears a black and white animal print sweater and skirt set from Givenchy's Pre-Fall 2013 collection, pairing it over trim white pants and oxford shoes. Matching monotone bag and a beanie complete her look.

Combining two separate looks from Prada's SS13 runway, Anna dresses up in a petal pink fur coat & chic pencil dress with floral motif. I wonder if the geisha sandals & socks will catch on?



Possibly the most subdued I've ever seen Anna, she looks elegant in two sophisticated suits by Saint Laurent, fitted with flattering cigarette pants, tailored tuxedo blazers and wide-brimmed fedora hats. I love this take on the menswear trend.


Snapped out on the streets of Milan, Anna is decked in a grey and ivory tweed coat by Burberry Prorsum, with a fur Miu Miu stole and Alaia boots.

One of her most favored labels has to be Fendi, as she is always wrapped in an extravagant fur coat by the Italian brand. She wears two theatrical looks straight off the Fall 2013 runway. The woman does love her fur...I wonder if Peta knows about this?

Taking on the beauty of the baroque trend, Anna braves the snow in a lavishly embroidered gold and black coat by Dolce & Gabbana. Gold capped YSL boots complete her look.



Another of Anna's brand favorites is Prada, she makes a lasting impression on New York Fashion Week in a red and white flower print fur coat, clasped by a metallic belt. White tights and Japanese inspired geta sandals style her gutsy look. She was also spotted in a lush black flower motif sweater and bag by the Italian label.

Stepping out in top-to-toe prints during Paris Fashion Week, Anna suits up in a 60's wallpaper print blazer and trousers by Miu Miu. Not to be outdone by the runway look, Anna adds a yellow blouse, bright blue bag and chunky mustard boots.

Never one to shy away from bright colours, Anna colours up a cold day in Milan with a vibrant orange DSquared2 trench coat & mammoth fur Marc Jacobs hat. Right: At the Stella McCartney runway show, Anna showed her support for the designer in a chic leopard print coat.


Anna glosses up in a metallic gold foil coat by No.21, which was presented just last week at their Fall 2013 runway show. Talk about having contacts. Her urbane chic styling includes a white fedora, Chanel clutch and rubbery soled shoes by Celine.


Keeping up with the checkered trend, Anna wears a green and white look from Louis Vuitton's Spring 2013 collection, whimsically styled with white tights and a bow headband. Right: During Paris Fashion Week, Anna displayed her love for Chanel in a decadent white ruffled dress from their Resort 2013 range, which she styled with black gloves and the same headband bow.


Picking a kaleidoscopic fur coat from Fendi's Resort 2013 range, Anna jazzes up the streets of New York Fashion Week. All white accessories and tights complete her adventurous outfit. 


What are your thoughts on Anna's Fall 2013 Fashion Week style?
Innovative or Over-the-Top?

oh my.... can i have her closet please?:) she has everything before anybody else! all eyes on here ;)
have a great day!

Lilli said...

Morning Sam! I really love the idea of this post! I have a crush on this woman! Lol! I know sometimes she maybe exaggerates too much but is always on the top!:) I think the best looks on here are: Saint Laurent, Dolce & Gabbana and Burberry (who are also ones of my fav designers!!) She especially got the perfect silhouette for Saint Laurent, though her age!! Kisses dear, have a great day!!:*♥

Bee-zee said...

I liked the Burberry Prorsum coat... very much! Maybe I'm biased - I bought a Burberry wook skirt in February and now... it's a bit too warm to wear it! But I can't wait! (It's not because of the brand, you know me. I liked the style!)
She is a lady that dares to stay true to her thoughts. And this is remarkable!

Stella said...

I don't like her at all, most of the times she is dressed sooo horrible.

Beauty Follower said...

This lady is great fun!

Lilli said...

♥ Thanks a bunch for your comment dear, big hugs!:*

Lilli said...

Forgot the lipstick is by Kiko, Ultra Glossy Stylo, n.817!

S said...

I think that sometimes is genial (like with that burberry coat) sometimes is too much...but definitely she can play with fashion! ;)

I don't see the fascination with this woman. She wears designer fashion from head to toe (but not in a good way). It's like she takes a collection and just throws it on. There's no sense of style. You can't just throw on Louis Vuitton and expect to look good. I think some people praise her just because she's wearing designer clothes. Well anyone can do that, given enough money or klout! I'm all for unique and visionaries, but she is not!

Daniella said...

Hi lovely, what an amazing post Sam, love Anna Dello Russo's original and eccentric sense of style! I love and admire how age doesn't stop her from wearing what she wants to wear, I myself know a few woman who could learn a thing or two from her confident attitude towards clothes! Love these looks you've picked, especially the one where she's wearing metallic gold coat! :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

Oh to Be a Muse said...

The Burberry look is the best one on her. She is great at her job, but is it weird that I think she doesn't dress age appropriate?

Ooooh, there are some looks in here that I do NOT like at all on her, but there are a lot that look really awesome. And like you say, she is looking pretty incredible for a lady in her 50s. Think my faves would be...the leopard coat, fedora hat and grey/red Fendi ensemble. Great post Sam, very inspiring!!

Katie Q. said...

I admire her for just doing her own thing, she seems to have a style aesthetic that she likes and she really do wear some pretty things! Her embroidered gold and black D&G coat is gorgeous, I would wear that in a heartbeat and I do like her other coats, I just don't think I could pull something like that off. That's one thing that I look forward to as a i grow older, older women seem so much more sure of themselves and who they are that they really can do what ever they want style wise and it works. (If that sentence even makes sense.)

Mira said...

I adore Anna dello Russo. All her looks are innovative. I wish I could borrow her clothes :-)

Elisabeth said...

My absolute favorite is the baroque trend! I've never understood that she follows that carefully catwalk styles, so thank you for this blog post and your kind support on my blog!

Ivana said...

Oddly enough, I'm not a big fan of Hedi Slimane's take on YSL (or Saint Laurent, as I'm supposed to call it), but his menswear-inspired tailored suits look fantastic on Anna! I also love her Dolce & Gabbana ensemble, but the rest is just too wild and eccentric for my taste. Anna is like an exotic bird in her outfits, always surprising, and I'm always looking forward to seeing her rocking the couture, but I'm nowhere near being inspired by her taste and style :)

AdinaA said...

There is this kind of love-hate relationship between me and Anna. I love her courage, I love how she is pushing boundaries, and how she loves being in the spotlight. She plays the role of her lifetime. But I can't say I am a fan of all her outfits, but she truly deserves a place in fashion history.

I love how you put the pictures together, here for example: Anna's outfit vs the catwalk outfit. It's fun to see them coming alive, you stop seeing them as catwalk pieces, but as wearable items. I love it!

Thank you for your sweet comment.

Have a wonderful day darling!

Oh and I saw the spam science blog post under my name, I pressed it and it took me to fiercenfashion.blogspot.com (which is my previous blog name) so I'm guessing someone else has that name for their blog...
