hmmmmmmmmm…not sure if I love or hate it. this first thing i noticed was her flesh colored rear end and thought "that looks sort of naughty." then i looked at her spine and thought, "what a great Haloween costume-she looks like a very fashionable skeleton" and finally i noticed the lovely raglan bell sleeve (my favorite part). an impractical dress but she has fabulous legs and is rocking it—so my final grade is a A-
I always love Anna's clothes, but I always feel like with her it's about the garments she owns and not really the way she wears them. She can definitely rock every single piece, but I never feel like execution is particularly creative.
A dress as unique and personal as she is. Anna is so fantastic, her style is beyond taste (she can pull off whatever she wants!)PLUS her legs are amazing!!!! Spoke to her at your book's party the other night…divertida!
I love the dress, why? I don't really know. But I feel like she went there, how many people would wear a dress with a skeleton in the bag. I also like the arms on the dress. Italians have an impeccable style. They wear anything and it looks great. It's their confidence.
Provocative and strange all at the same time–exactly what you'd expect from the Italian editor of Japanese Vogue. You can see her two culture cues in this outfit. Usually she reads very Italian to me but here is "Italian in Japan," 100%.
I think Ann's M.O. is dressing to intimidate. Maybe that's because of her work, being a fashion editor and all, but I think that level of oddly unexpected PLUS expensive only suits a very slim minority of women.
I like creativity that is more accessible-looking. I think her business mind has eclipsed her human one. In other words, she's holding a conversation with a handful of her peers.
“Dressing to intimidate.” I like that. I’m a guy, and I feel like I push the envelope when I dress, tho not to this extreme or price point. Yeah, I want to get noticed, but I also want to wake people up and make them think. Living in small-town Indiana, I’m always better dressed than just about everyone – it’s what I do – it’s what makes me feel comfortable – I’m a mature man who knows how to dress, so sue me ;o). I simply can’t wake up and put on work boots, jeans, t-shirt, camo jacket and ball cap – It just wouldn’t be me. Some of these guys probably need to wear that to work, so I don’t hold that against them. But, PLEASE, have enough pride in yourself and respect for others to put on something nicer when you go out! Ha! Not likely to happen here, but I can dream.
I love your comment that Anna is “holding a conversation with a handful of her peers.” That’s EXACTLY right! I just wrote another entry saying that she just seems to be from another planet – maybe even a planet of one. Now that you’ve said that, I think you are SO right – I don’t know that the woman even has any peers. I guess as long as she’s enjoying herself, she should go for it. Certainly not hurting anyone, right?
I agree, this is eye catching :) but for the right reasons :P The dress is different, but very creative and i especially love the sleeves and shoes!!… she really does have the figure to pull it off… well done to get the shot before she hopped into the car ;)
I feel like she wears these fantastic, eclectic and expensive clothes…but she doesn't appear to put it all together well.
I never like her complete picture, although the elements are nice alone. My idea of fashion is the talent to put a mess of items (expensive or not) together in a way that is artful and clean and beautiful. I don't see her as having much inspiration on that front, which is strange, considering her vocation.
I see her make choices because they are en vogue, and not because they are flattering.
Agree with you, Walter. Tho, I wouldn’t say her choices are what’s en vogue, more like what’s avant garde, if not just plain weird. I never see anyone else wearing the things that she does other than on the runway or in a fashion spread. But, this is Anna. If nothing else, she sure gets a conversation going!
