Yes, it's only been a day since i last posted, but when i've got the blogging spirit, i kind of have to post. So, here i am again with what i hope is going to be an interesting post. :)
I've always been fascinated by Anna Piaggi ever since reading about her in my personal fashion bible 'The Cheap Date's Guide to Style'. And when i saw this picture on the Satorialist I felt the need to find out more. So here it is, the first ever Fashion Biography to ever grace the posts of Fashionyou.
Anna Piaggi is an international writer and stylist, and her articles have been shown on the pages of Italian Vogue in which she has been the creative consultant since 1988, and Vanity Fair. However, she is more often recognised for her eccentric taste in stile and always unique hair and makeup. According to the V&A she has an amazing 2865 dresses. She has been associated with Manalo Blahnik, Karl Lagerfeld and Stephen Jones.
And here are a few questions asked to her by The Telegraph in 2006:
Who are your favourite designers of the moment? I like Dolce & Gabbana and Rifat Ozbek. Also John Galliano, because he's a designer whose clothes create their own mood. I've recently rediscovered Chanel, who I used to wear years ago. I particularly like the collections they make for Japan, full of such stunning patterns and colours. I've also rediscovered Missoni, the clothes are made with such craft. And I like the modernism and discipline of Prada.
What have been your biggest fashion indulgences? Hats (by either Philip Treacy or Stephen Jones), gloves (from Missoni Men, with cutout fingers - I wear them while I'm working and with matching nail varnish) and walking canes (from Madeleine Gély, 218 blvd St Germain, Paris).
Truly an icon...
Have a nice day everyone.
