Anna Dello Russo: A Favorite for Street Style Photographers

Yes, everyone loves Anna Dello Russo (Fashion Director at Large of Vogue Nippon). At Paris fashion week she is photographed multiple times a day because of all of her amazing outfit changes. This time she's wearing a belt by Italian designer Francesco Scognamiglio. Garance Dore has a very charming video of her telling a friend how she couldn't spell his name when asked by a photographer (watch it!).

I'm leaving to Paris at the end of March. I can't believe I'm just missing fashion week. It would've been crazy. Anyways do you have any suggestions of boutiques to visit? I'm staying in the 16th Arrondissement on the Right Bank. I'll let you know what I find...

No more Balenciaga in French Vogue?

Apparently Balenciaga has black-listed French Vogue which means no advertisements, no invitations to their shows, and no clothes lent for their editorials (Heard from who quoted Carine Roitfeld)

Isn't that kind of a good thing, with all of those Balenciaga bags floating around? I think I've seen too many of them. You know it's gone too far when a patchwork bag is designed made from older collections of the same bag.

Seriously? This is the best they can come up with? Terrible. I almost can't put this picture up.

Alice in Wonderland: The Dresses are Worth Talking About

This weekend I watched Alice in Wonderland. The movie was disappointing, except for the clothes. The dresses! I loved Colleen Atwood's designs and how they didn't look too costume-y and typical. Yet doesn't this dress remind you of Scout Willis dressed by Christian Lacroix at the 2008 Crillon Ball mixed with the top ruffles that Stella McCartney uses in her ad campaign for Spring 2010?

(Yesss, you see it? Tell me you see it! The two layers on top like McCartney and the fabric layered by ribbons from Lacroix. Ahh yes of course...)
Oh how I miss Lacroix.
And Ann Hathaway had a gorgeous costume as well:
