Anna Dello Russo: Black Tie Affair ( styling )

In the street style stakes, this year belongs to Anna Dello Russo. From her numerous appearances on sites such as the Sartorialist, Jak & Jil and Street Peeper, to the launch of her own blog this February (probably the most glittery, spangly web experience out there), to her increasing exposure in mainstream and print media (see her 10 magazine cover above), she has rapidly increased her profile to become one of the fashion world’s most recognizable personalities. But all this attention has not come without hard work: currently the editor-at-large for Vogue Japan, Dello Russo has been in the business for more than two decades, with previous stints as fashion editor at Vogue Italia and editor at L’Uomo Vogue. We caught up with Dello Russo (a self-proclaimed “Cinderella” figure) as she prepared to go to the ball—namely, photographer Giampaolo Sgura’s USA-themed Halloween extravaganza, which kicks off in Milan tomorrow night.

The Outrageous Vogue Editor Goes Both Ways in Marco Braga's Film ADRESSCODE

Anna Dello Russo indulged a cross-dressing fantasy to star in and style the cheeky ADRESSCODE, debuting on NOWNESS today. A joint project between the Vogue Japan Editor-at-Large and her longtime colleague and friend, art director Marco Braga, the fashion film was conceptualized for the multimedia exhibition Men in Italy, which runs alongside the fall 2011 menswear shows and features the work of 20 creative couples. “I like to mix references,” says Braga of the androgyny-themed short, whose title is a play on Dello Russo’s initials. “It’s everything from Stanley Kubrick to Madonna’s ‘Justify My Love’ video.” The film pays tribute to Italian sophistication in classic black and white, mining labels such as Dolce & Gabbana and Prada. A slick tuxedo by up-and-coming Turkish designer Umit Benan takes pride of place, anointed with an architectural accessory synonymous with Milan. “Marco called and said he’d found a gold Duomo cathedral from the souvenir shop,” says Dello Russo. “‘Fabulous,’ I said. ‘We can put it in my hair!’”
