Back with a Bang!

Forgive me for being MIA this week…in short, I have been battling a very unpleasant stomach virus. Non the less, I am back and ready to talk FASHION.

So this morning I was catching myself up on whats been going on in the fashion world since I’ve been basically invalid for the last few days and came across this article that made me giggle. God, I love this woman. If you ever get sick of hearing about her let me know, but don’t say I didn’t warn you, she kills me.

This lady has plans…after fashion, Anna Dello Russo plans on being a…(drum roll please)..SINGER!  

Huh? What?? Yes, thats right.

Anna Says, “I want to finish in fashion, become a singer and release a record,” if her singing is as loud as her clothing well then we are in for a treat!

Well I must say I cannot wait to see her bust some of these pretty sweet moves to the sound of her own tunes:

   

Bravo to Ms. Dello Russo for never being boring.

So what do you guys think??

Look Who it is: ADR is back.

So you guys didn’t think I’d let fashion week go by without a peep about Ms. Dello Russo did you??

So this morning I ran into this little photo and blurb about our acclaimed “FASHION MANIAC”

ps. Anna wore this fabulous feathered YSL ensemble to the Marc Jacobs Show. If you can manage to peel your eyes from the dress/coat..check out those fierce shoes…LOVE THEM. Very Sexy.

And apparently the hat featured on the runway model on the left is next on Ms. Dello Russo’s shopping list. In an interview with Fashionista.com Anna says:

” I loved the collection,” she told us. “It was a kind of fantasy, a fairy tale–like a Tim Burton movie, which is really good for us to get in a different mood. Rather than being strictly fashion like it used to be in New York it’s time to dream. Of course, the Stephen Jones hats were fantastic and the buckle on the shoes–everything puts you in a fantasy mood.”

“So will we see you in one of those hats?” we had to ask.

“I will, for sure,” Dello Russo said without hesitation. “The white one with the pink. I can carry it [off], I think so.”

She will never get boring. 🙂

ANNA. DELLO. RUSSO.

I am back! After a couple crazy days, I am back and ready to talk FASHION.

So in the midst of what has begun as a crazy week, I needed something uplifting in my life right now…something to give me a little chuckle.

ENTER ANNA DELLO RUSSO. Its about time for another ADR post anyway. I love this crazy woman.

Of course the outfit would’nt be complete without what I sure is a diamond encrusted Tiara..and feathers! 🙂 So the picture shown above was paired with the quote below, regarding how MS.ADR prepares for NY Fashion Week:

“I prepare the looks and the luggage at the end of October. I already chose the best coats, and I saved for Fashion Week. I have a Balenciaga, really bright purple. Then I have an orange floral coat by Prada, and a really intense green velvet coat by Tom Ford. Not black. Anything but black! What I packed is many coats, boots, a clutch, and some evening party dresses – really short. Then I will bring some hats because New York is a really open-minded city. They say, ‘Oh that’s a good look!’ They encourage.

I went to India at Christmastime to prepare my body with yoga, swim, sunshine, also meditation and Ayurvedic massage. I like so much to be well done, you know, all perfect. I like now kind of red-orange chinois for the nails. And then I keep a little tan on my legs, because when I go to shows I don’t wear socks. I do body makeup.”

 

Nothing like a little insight/boarderline crazy-town comments from Ms. Dello Russo to brighten your day! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

A realization that a lot of woman can learn from…

Correct me if I am wrong, but to people who love fashion and style, they consider it a tool for self expression and exemplifying how they may be feeling (or how they may want to feel).  If you want to feel sexy you may throw on a nice high pair of Louboutin heals, or if you are tired and feel like lounging around, you might just feel like throwing on a pair of sweats (**unless you are Anna Dello Russo and go take a “fashion shower,” LOL).

 In other words, how you dress or put your self together is the way you identify yourself and set yourself apart from the rest of the world. Well the same would go for relationships right? The people you surround yourself with and how they act also reflects on you as a person as well. Well I came across an article/interview with Kristen Bell and she had something really interesting to say on what she realized about her own identification as a person and woman which that I think a lot of woman could learn from:

“I became aware of how much I depend on my relationships as a sort of survival mechanism, identifying who I am based on the other person in the room, whether that’s a director, my significant other, or my friend.”

Thoughts?

Philosophy/Inspiration from a fashion Maven

Happy hump day!!

While sipping my morning coffee and catching up on one of my favorite blogs I came across a highly entertaining and semi-thought provoking article about one of my personally favorite fashion icons divas. Apparently, highly respected Editor At Large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan, Anna Dello Russo changes up to not 1, or 2 but 5 times a day. 

Ms. Dello Russo also had some words of wisdom for her fellow females. Women say to me, ‘I’m tired, I don’t want to go out. It’s too much effort.’ And I say to them, ‘You need to take a fashion shower and then you’ll wake up.'”

In other words, get off your lazy ass and put on something fabulous, 5 times a day. LOL. 
 Oh, ADR will never get boring, thats for sure. Below are 5 of my favorite ADR looks (possibly all from any 1 given day) Enjoy!

  

Which one is your favorite?
