for those of you calling anna “outdated”- she is fashion, if she’s outdated everyone is outdated. there is a huge difference between outdated and iconic and timeless. anna fits the description of iconic and timeless to a tee…
I think she hides her face with her hair so as to insulate herself from the masses of people staring/taking her photo/plotting to rip off/besmirch her fur coat at the next opportunity. Poor woman, she’s a walking symbol of the fashion industry. It can’t be easy.
I find her boring. The dress is okay. I mean, it’s beautiful but *yawn* tasteful as usual zzzzzzzz.
I agree with Susan. I can’t believe there is not another haircut that would flatter her. Trademark, schmademark – I would go CRAZY if I didn’t try a new cut every few years, especially working in an industry whose middle name is novelty. [I don't know what it's last name is. Visabill?]
wow. You must weave some kind of magic with that camera. I can’t imagine her majesty posing for anyone on the steps of Bryant Park. You’re a god for getting her to pause. Is this a guerilla ambush shot or is she a friend?
Wow, what a dress and figure. Love the dark print dress and the light coloured mack over her shoulders. Very cool and breezy. The colouring of her clothes matches her hair and glasses perfectly. Both of which allow me to recognize instantly the lovely lady in your shot.
I agree with several others here: the problem with the hair is that it overwhelms her. she looks like the stereotype of someone who’s gone into hiding, wearing a big wig. The glasses of course add to that effect.
However, I like the dress on her: a small woman pulling off a rather large print.
I think to say she looks boring is very short-sighted. Anyone can wear over the top fashion clothes from Gareth Pugh. Anyone can wear Balenciaga straight off the runway even if it does not suit them. The trick is that Anna dresses for herself, for her style and never changes her look regardless of the fashions around her. She appropriates key pieces and makes them her own which makes her a truly stylish person. Also it must be noted that she is a 50 something year old woman who literally wears clothes straight off the catwalk (i.e. she fits a dress that was last worn by a 17 year old). She is everything you need in a fashion icon. True style is not about being dictated to itâ€™s about listening and then doing what is right for you.
