R.I.P. Anna Piaggi

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.’

Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani tweeted:  “23 years of working together, thousands of D.P. carried out together. I will always remember you, Anna.”

Crazy Anna goes Beyond


Anna-Dello-Russo_Fragrance_BottleAnna Dello Russo, Fashion Director at Large and Creative Consultant at Vogue Japan and a global fashion icon, revels in glamour and lives high fashion at its best. During fashion week, I always admire her wild style. Now, she is paving a new path for fashion editors worldwide with the launch of her own perfume Beyond. The scent will be available from December 3rd exclusively at yoox.com, and contains two of my favourite ingredients, vanilla and almond. The bottle is very Anna: A golden high heel shoe, reminiscent of the Cinderella fairytale.

With Anna leading the way, it seems like fashion editors can become the new superstars.
I actually like that… very much!

LoL, Sandra
