RIP AnnaPiaggi

Unfortunately, I have another sad news for you: The fabulous fashion writer and style icon Anna Piaggi passed away this morning at the age of 81. The gorgeous lady was famous for her double-page spreads in Vogue Italia as well as her vibrant wardrobe.

Her fans range from Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana to her pal Manolo Blahnik, who called her ‘modern beyond belief.’
