A Dressing Up Box to Die For

When I grow up I want to be Anna Dello Russo!

I stumbled on this video of an interview with Anna at Vintage Honey's blog Forever Vintage and I think I watched it about ten times in a state of awe. After collecting my bottom jaw from the floor I thought I'd re-post.  Now here is a dressing up box I would dearly love to set up camp in and play dress up!  Feathers, leopard print, couture, divine shoes, fringing, brocade, sequins, hats, frilly underskirts, amazing jewellery - she has it all!

Trust this lady to be the first to champion a lampshade skirt dress from the Mary Katrantzou's Spring Summer 2011 collection and just get a load of that stash of jewellery!  She also mentions having an entire flat in Milan to store her wardrobe (this video appears to be in her Parisian flat).  Now that must be one serious dressing up box.

I love how she just glows talking about clothes and fashion.  She is just so into it that you can't avoid being infected with her enthusiasm and passion for fashion.  I think I'm burning a fashion induced fever now and will have to hide the credit cards and go lie down for a while.

Before I do a shout out must go to the lovely Franca of Oranges and Apples who has given me a Sunshine Award.  Thank you Franca!


  1. She's fabulous!! And so much fun! If you search on youtube you can find videos her milan apts. Her jewelry is FABULOUS! I think this is her suite in the Ritz.

  2. Such a wonderful video about AdR. I love her devotion to fashion (I read she works out 3 hours every morning to keep her fabulous figure) and her enthusiasm for and knowledge about all things fashion. Now I've got to watch the video again!

  3. What a fab lady! She's so much fun and i'm memerised by that amazing green jacket she's got hanging up behind her. xxx

  4. She is amazing! She loves fashion! She LOVES fashion! She lives in and for fashion!
    Only thing I don't like - lately she tries too much to please street style photographers. At least I feel that way.

  5. I have been a follower of Anna dello Russo´s blog the first time I set my eyes on her.
    She is wonderful, inspiring, with a touch of magic.I do not know about wanting to be her, but I wouldn´t mind spending a few days or weeks in her flat full of CLOTHESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am going mad with the thought.
    Bueno guapa mía, ¿cuándo vas a desfilar para nosotras con toda esa ropa bonita que nos muestras?
    Un beso de los grandes, grandes.

  6. she's so adorable! i love the way she talks and the gestures she makes. i love how excited she gets about fashion. like a small child with a new toy. and i love that about her! it's so refreshing to see someone being so open about their fashion love. it's wonderful!

  7. I love "in this case, no hat."
    Very restrained! She's wonderful.

  8. OMG she's fantastic and her wardrobe is amazing! I love that the one item she'd save in a fire is a pair of shoes. Thanks so much for sharing!

  9. After having watched it several times I needed to put it on my blog, too. It's just too much... Thank you for putting it on!

  10. Congratulations on the award and thank you for bringing this lovely "closet" to my attention!

  11. I have long thought that a kitchen is a surpluss requirement, I absolutely love Anna!

  12. @Pret a Porter P - oh for a suite in the Ritz!

    @Pearl Westwood - LOL! I bet you're like Carrie - using your oven to store knitwear

    @Ginta - you can just see that the love for fashion seeps out of every pore. Do you think she performs for the bloggers? Perhaps she does - but what a performer!!

    @kirtsy elena - I love that about her too, the childlike excitement about it all! She seems very charming.

    @sacramento - She's an inspiration isn't she? perdona no hay tiempo para ningun desfila en estos dias!

    @Vintage Vixen - that's what I love most about her is her sense of fun! Yeah the green feathery jacket? I spotted that too!

    @Terri - you're welcome, hope it brought you some whacky inspiration.

    @SabinePsynopsis - don't blame you! I'm still watching it since posting!

    @Piper - yes the shoes, I thought that was great and completely agree with her!

    @MrsBossa - I know! Here I am saying oh is this or that too much before I even get to accessories let alone hats!

  13. FINALLY had a chance to watch this...I adore ADR! Love this video...thanks for sharing. And I agree with her: in a fire, save the shoes! Even naked is better with shoes!
