Anna Dello Russo Obsession: Part I

19 Apr

I know I’ve been talking about this for days and I swear I have actually worked on the most enormous ADR collection ever. Where to begin? I’m starting with a few random, gorgeous pieces.


I don’t know if my obsession with ADR has anything to do with the fact that every shot of her outfit is so glamorous and artfully shot. Look at the way her fur stands out against the old grace of the city. She looks stunning. I love this Pucci fur. I loved in on the runway and it looks even more amazing under the night sky with all the elegance of ADR under it. I haven’t seen any shots of what’s under the fur but I’d be willing to bet it’s the sheer Pucci dress from the runway — I recently read an article where she said she copies the runway looks because that’s how the art is intended to be seen, like downloading an entire CD vs. one song. You replicate and honor the artist in this way. It was a perspective I had never considered.


This reminds me of McQueen in the structure of it. The intricacy and delicacy in a McQueen piece is missing though. In terms of the rest of the outfit it’s not all working for me– it feels like she is drawing from different eras in a way that doesn’t work. The shoes and the sunglasses, minor aspects but when it comes to this level of sartorial acumen, everything matters. I loved the two different perspectives of this dress although they’re similar so the “runway” look is posted below. The collars are different but it’s undeniably a slightly modified version… delicious, just delicious.


Talk about sass! I love the shoulders on this they’re so…dominating and severe …like a small dose of McQueen on a regular blazer…high fashion at its finest.

Need another dose?
