    Maybe it's because I don't live in New York, fashion capital of the world, but why do people dress like this for everyday life? Maybe fashion isn't for me because I would never wear either one of these outfits in public, they belong in a runway show.

      Agreed. Maybe fashion isn’t for either of us; I suspect style is.

    A little too much color clash for me. Love the textured, but for me, it's just a little too unorganized.

    Wonderful colors, also in the shot itself. Once again my only little problem is with the platform shoes. They downgrade the dress for me, which is otherwise quite nice. The pink glasses are cute with the other dress.

    The woman to the left looks great. I think what works with her outfit are the proportions and colour. The feathery look to the right is slightly irritating – I hate to say that but I don't enjoy the outfit. It's a bit too much fluff for me. I'm sure she looks lovely on other days.

    Wow! What can I say about both of these ladies in their Couture? They are both really mixing it up today. I am reminded, again, of the 80's. I love the color of Anna's dress, not sure about the shoe combo but alas, her friend has the sock thing going with her fantastic platforms. All in all, a heady mix but I'm working on wrapping my head around it! Anna is what Anna is, so if she chooses to wear color blocked sandals that in no way shape or form match or compliment the rest of her attire, she is going to get away with it. You go girl!

    Anna has always been SO stylish and original. But here she is dressed for the pantomime, and her knees are shouting "Cover us quick!!!". Her so-called competition looks far more age-appropriately dressed, even if I hate the socks with those shoes. Anna's shoes are gorgeous, but they have nothing to do with the dress, which is just silly. Sorry, but this is one time she has let us down.

    I don't understand when girls wear socks which create the illusion of shorter legs. The feather dress is very chic and channels SJP and the shoes are amazing. The whole colour palette just works. (Though the wrinkly knees are not so attractive)

    sorry but I say what I think!

    Maybe in person to person the colors was matching but on picture is not the case. Not the best match she did in my opinion.

    Thanks for sharing her picture though!

    I noticed that someone who previously commented didn't like how young she dressed. But I have to say, even though she may be in her mid 30's, at least, Anna has this amazing young spirit and so it seems that she can wear just about anything she wants and make it quite desirable. She did a terrific job with this Jason Wu number and it goes so well with the weather in the photo. You did a great job capturing the moment.

    When "Anna" is merely thought of as some gal from Podunk, her outfit is rather odd and pretentious.

    Knowing that "Anna" is celebrated in the industry for her fashion sense, somehow makes her attire that more brilliantly and stylishly special.

    These women's outfits should look fun and original, and up to a point they do. But I keep feeling that they look a bit desperate, frantically trying to out-crazy everyone else, especially Anna. What's left for her to wear when she wants to pull out all the stops for a special night? Without restraint, how can there be excess?

    Left side dress is way cool, but socks totally degrade the look. I believe Anna is probably a tad older than mid-30s, as one commenter stated. Her shoes are a total mismatch to the lightness of the feathers. They say that the legs are the last thing to go on a woman, but the knees are the first thing to go on the legs…spoken from experience.

    Was watching Aarti Party, the new Food Network Star's debut show last weekend and she made this gorgeous coconut toffee.

    It was white originally and she added just a drop of red food coloring to give it this nice soft pink hue and the color and textures of the dessert reminded me of Anna's ostrich feather dress which is equally scrumptious!

    Her shoes speak for themselves!

    But what I love most about this picture is the signature Sartorialist lighting in contrast with the beautiful subjects and the trees in the backdrop and people getting ready to go into a fashion show….

    The outfits are really interesting and stylish, that's for sure. I particularly like the unexpected green belt on the light pink dress. But, I think that this pictures clearly shows that women above certain age should not wear skirt above their knees – it just doesn't look good any more. But that doesn't mean they can't look modern and trendy (in some other outfit). Am I the only one commenting on this?

    This picture is interesting to me for several reasons. 1) I feel like ADR often wears head-to-toe runway looks, which look great, but are not very original. Part of having great style is interpreting the runway, and mixing and matching designers/styles of clothing. This outfit is more original that most outfits I’ve seen her wear. 2) Having said all that, I don’t think that this outfit is particularly great. And the shoes definitely do not work.

    She's clutching her forehead in despair, having just realized that if you must try waaaay too hard while getting dressed, erring on the side of interesting proportions and texture-mixing is far preferable to looking Carrie Bradshaw cutesie-boopsie.

    (And what is it with the recent spate of comments about women's knees? They're just knees. They're kind of funny-looking no matter who you are. I may not like ADR's outfit, but I appreciate that she's not neurotically hiding what some might perceive as an "imperfection.")

    Sometimes what we love doesnt love us back! The pink dress is cute but so unflattering on her – and she has a great figure but this dress does her absolutely no favours. Loe the way its styled, but still, it's not flattering

    Maybe the purple dress looks better from the front, but fro the back, it looks disjointed and trend driven (ratehr than style)

    AF it is Fashion Week in New York! I am sure Anna doesn't wear this ensemble grocery shopping. However, when one person dresses as Coco Chanel so boldly proclaimed, "I can't understand how a woman can leave the house without fixing herself up a little, if only out of politeness." These ladies look wonderful in their front row seat inspired ensembles. They are dressing to impress, seem fashion conscious and most importantly feel great about artfully dressing. I am sure dressing as though it's an ordinary occassion is far from their minds. Well, it isn't an ordinary occassion. It is FASHION WEEK.

  262. Patrick

    September 18, 2010 at 8:43 am

    I fear the people around Anna are doing her no justice if they tell her that this dress looks good on her. I think she needs to accept the reality that she is maturing in age, and her personal style should reflect that, not fight it. There is nothing worse than watching a legend grip so tightly to the past that they can’t embrace the future.

    To specify my comments further, I’m criticising the length of her dress. While she may be happy displaying her knees with a lower cut dress, it takes the youth out of her outfit and makes everything look tired, and quite frankly, it looks a little distasteful.

    Anna has a wonderful figure, and I eagerly await future photographs showing her style developing and maturing with her body. Thank you to Scott and Anna for the many quality photographs, they are the inspiration for so many, and from all walks of life. I love reading the comments attached to these photographs, you have amassed a wonderfully little community Scott, congratulations.

    I like Anna's dress but she doesn't have the legs for it, i genuinly think she's got the style but not the age so…i don't like the pic.

    I'm not feeling the socks with the heels, but absolutely LOVE the pink and black strap heels.

    Anna dello Russo is one of my favorites to watch during Fashion Week in NY. She is never boring. I adore her… That Jason Wu get-up is right off the runway! So bold, I love her!!!!

    Patricia Field would have been so happy…
    I adore the sock-sandal detail, and the match betweet the high heel straps and the sunglasses…

    Its odd but the feathered dress on its own is youthful and succeeds in aging her via contrast. Nothing wrong with being the age she is and I think she is really beautiful and stylish. Like some people said, she works in this world and is making a statement. Its probably hard to know when you are crossing into the ridiculous or doing yourself a disservice.

    I'm not sure if I'm actually hurting anyone when I say this, but I don't like what Anna is wearing, it's just all funny and cheerful but to me, it doesn't have a sense of style. I'd rather go for the outfit of the woman she's talking with. But hey, who am I. It occurs that Anna has a lot of fans around here.:)

    Anna is so amazing! She can pull of ever look, altough she is not a twentysomething girl anymore.
    It's such a shame she's not here at London Fashion Week right now!

    To me, this just seems like it's been thrown together in a daze. It seems to say 'I know fashion, I know style, but I'm different therefore I'll wear some sack thing that looks like a flamingo'. It does certainly not seem effortless, charming or capture a mood. It only shows a certain desperation that comes with keeping up with fashion.

    Well, I feel as if I must be from another planet or something because I think they both look plain daft. All this talk of 'beauty' strikes me as daft too, in the context. And I agree about the knees.

    I have to comment again…WHY DO YOU ALL LOVE CARRIE BRADSHAW CHARACTER??? Almost all men I know think she always looks clownish, especially with the silly hats-always overdone-as if more money than sense-"little girl dress up playtime" and, sorry,a great smile and eyes but SJP is not pretty, we don't get it. I'm all for pushing the style envelope (see above)and understand that woman may not care what a man thinks about it, but we react in subtle ways……………….

    I love the fact that Anna is one of the few who just pick a look from the runway and present herself to everyone IN her way. No fear, just a breath of fresh air. Bravo!

    I think it’s actually sad… she tries to look as a girl but she’s so betrayed by those awfully wrinckled knees and legs. Ridiculous…
