See that girl : Anna Dello Russo

Anna Dello Russo, Fashion Director at Large and Creative Consultant at Vogue Nippon may be a name few women recognize. But, she is quickly becoming a famous fashion icon across the globe, thanks to the man behind the number 1 style blog, The Sartorialist (Scott Schuman). Scott started noticing her and took pictures of her during fashion weeks. He then posted the pictures in his blog and that's when people started to acknowledge her and her out of this world style. Being a huge sartorialist fan myself, the presence of Anna in his page immediately caught my attention and instantly, I fell in love with her ensembles.

she looks like she's stepped straight off the pages of an editorial spread

matched with golden high heels

never get caught wearing no accessories

Here's a quote from Anna herself on the whole streetstyle phenomenon:

"The whole streetstyle thing these days is like a job, it's all planned and thought up in advance; it's not as though you just 'happen' to run into one another. Outfits are prepares in advance . . . I get ready six months beforehand. I edit the clothes (about 90 outfits for each fashion week). I think of what would look good on camera . . . I just hope it doesn't end up making it lose its spontaneity and make it become fake."

Fun facts:
1. She has over 4000 pairs of shoes
2. When in Paris she stays at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in the same room
3. She takes a Japanese breakfast every morning (Salmon, miso soup, plus eggs and coffee).
