i love this. i love it because being that it is summer here, in australia, i’m getting so bored of the short dresses and excess of skin, and knowing that in a few months when it is cold enough to be wearing tights most girls will be resisting. i also love the coat on the left being so unconventional, though i wish she wasn’t wearing that beanie. i also love the outfit on the right and if the woman on the right was wearing the shoes from the woman on the left she would be absolutely phenomenal.. not that she isn’t great already
I always like so much Anna Lo Russo’s outfits and the way she wears short skirts or dresses. Very very nice also the navy (or black?) coat on the right and the suĂ¨de shoes matching with the mat tights. Great picture, great look!
can somebody please explain to me the attraction to shoes that look like orthopedic braces? seriously, I sincerely would like to hear. this woman looks great, has fabulous legs, but when you get down to the feet you wonder if there is a wheelchair waiting somewhere.
It strikes me that her coat is a whimsical mashup of sport clothing and elegance. Adidas meets Mink, figuratively speaking. The shoes weigh-in on the sport side. Little Black Dress and stockings…elegance.
I’m going to say it: I think Anna is starting to look a bit passe, what with the mini skirts and the gladiator shoes. It has been done, done, done, and she’s done all of it to the point where it now looks worn out. I suspect those shoes will be gathering dust in her closet very soon now; or should be.
That looks like the Balenciaga coat on the left. Loving those military-slash-Helmut-Lang style red stripes. Not loving the beanie or the orthopaedic shoes but it’s all down to personal choice I s’pose.
yes coat. no shoes&hat. it looks like a sex & the city/Carrie outfit, in the nicest way possible. i just hate Anna Dello Russo’s attitude, she always looks angry/unapproachable/something on the lines, even thou she has the best body and quite a great style.
The appeal in shoes like those is D-A-N-G-E-R. they speak of dangersex. She is in danger of falling over. Look how delicately she dances to keep upright, it’s breathtaking. Look at those gams…walking like that has it’s upside. And plus, it’s easy to push her over…
mr. sart i know nothing about the actual process and application of photography, but the clarity of your photos is so captivating. this will surely sound odd, but i couldn’t stop looking at the vibrant moss growing from in between those lovely plum and umber cobbles, and the gray-blue wall. so much texture and lovely subtle color!
and i love how this woman who knows you, who you’ve photographed so many times, turned her torso and face slightly towards you in this “candid” shot. oh oops, i’m on the phone, i didn’t see you coming.. but i did. it’s great. and she’s got such style! how i’d love to rummage around in these ladies massive massive closets, although that sounds a little odd, too.
To Buddhapest, the dude who says Anna has done this lots of times before is actually correct. I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s tired, but you need only look at her pictures on this blog to see that she likes the short dress/skirt and gladiator shoes thing. Again, I personally think she looks great here and she knows what works for her.
I LOVE the beanie! I think it balances the high fashion of the coat and the shoe, which are both such statement pieces. It makes her look like she is not tryng so hard, which is perfect! She looks BRILLIANT.
Budapest, SO to talk about Anna is not possible because… they are not her coworkers or friends? That statement is as you say “pathetic”! Why do you think to talk about Anna is such a forbidden act? Is in she out as public figure? Sadly your post did not show but disdain for those other posts…
In my mind it is pathetic to assume about the character of a person I have not met in real life… is like you say “I don’t like chocolate cake but you never tried it” to me that is a towny mind and still think is pretentious to talk about her outfit as if you can do it better. I love her style: no apologies to where what you like.
Well, here’s another comment from the “dudess” who said Anna has done this waaaaay too many times before. If you look back in the archives, you will find that in most of the pictures of her in the last 6 months or more, she is wearing mini-skirt/Big Shoes. I think she looks terrific in the style, as she well knows, and I happen to rather like the shoes.
But what is also true is that when you have shoes/fashion that is this over-the-top decadent — can the heels/platforms get any higher? — it is something that is at the end of its moment. It can not last.
And Anna is so fashion-forward, you could almost watch her as a barometer of when this style is dead. I’d put money on it that it won’t last through the next season.
And, by the way, the only photo of her that I could find when she wasn’t wearing monster shoes, she was, amazingly enough — smiling.
I think it is not a little presumptuous to talk of Anna’s character from looking at her in photos. I myself have joie de vivre in spades, but receive “cheer up, it’s not all bad” comments from complete strangers. Why? Cos my face looks sad on repose. Very irritating I must say!
Anna is striking in this outfit. It reminds me of Carrie in SaC, when she wore a coat similar to this one but without the stripes. The woman on the right looks too boring compared to Anna with that shoes even a bit strange for the season. Like her coat and tights though. http://madrilicious.com
