I agree she does it in a way no one else could, so unabashed but at the same time honest. She's uber "couture". I could NEVER (nor would I even try) to pull off her look, but it definitely gives some yummy food for thought.
Price tag and patterns aside, I really think that you can only look good in something you believe you look good in. This woman knows she looks good and her face says it all; "Go ahead. Try and tell me I don't look fantastic. See what happens."
aww, she's such an extravaganza i ADORE her. i don't think she's dramatic, i actually believe she's one of the last people in the fashion industry to be wearing what they love wearing and have their own little history of style! i've seen her at the chanel boutique she was stunning such an amazing icon and beautiful creature. continue inspiring us anna!
I don't find her dramatic…I consider her to be a true artist. Most people wouldn't even have the guts or know how to put something like this together…let alone actually wear it. True art is when we create things others cannot…or would not.
Interesting and eccentric, yes. But the work that went into putting together this assemblage is blatantly evident–and that, in turn, exhibits a lack of a certain je nais sais qua. The tilt of the hat is wonderfully amusing, though–as is the bright cupid's bow mouth.
When I see her, I do not enjoy her appearance. Am I the only person on the planet who thinks this? At the same time, I applaud Anna Piaggi (and all others) for wearing what makes them feel wonderful and alive.
Seperate each piece anyone can wear, but all put together only someone of unshakable confidence and artistic flare could wear these clothes and maintain the air of an aristocrat. Well done dear. http://www.zazzle.com/alloamora*.
This is a joke right? Cirque De Soile is calling her. I am sure she is a lovely lady and a daring one but I would be concerned if my grandmother went out of the house like that, I would have to consider the medication she is taking.
I totally agree with ohdearcharlotte – this is Isabella Blow if she had lived to this age. Far too over the top for me – she just looks ridiculous. She's not chic and her makeup is horrific. But she's daring, and is obviously confident in her eccentricity, so full marks for that.
I remember seeing her on the 20/20 segment with Anna Wintour. it was kind of sad, the interviewer mocked those who dressed as you said "over-dramatic" but hello, it's fashion. she doesn't look pretentious and overdone which can't be said for many people nowadays.
She is such a popular photo op in the fashion world…but does this woman ever look like she's enjoying the attention she obviously takes such pains to attract? She always looks like she's never having any fun! Her face is always so dour. Whenever I see her I wonder: "What is this woman actually about, anyway?!"
Fantastic to see Anna being Anna. Memories of a great dinner with her and Vern Lambert in Verns basement apartment in Milan. Both beautiful friendly souls, Anna wearing a Jenny Kee ensemble to make us feel at home (Aussies). The most amazing collection of fashion I had ever seen covered the walls, floors, beds throughout the apartment – incredible. RIP Vern. Paul – Adelaide
I think her best style trait is the fact that she's unafraid to be herself. Her look is very studied and shows care for her personality and personal expression. I admire her for wearing herself on her sleeve as it were.
