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.

P.s-> Please note the kind donation of Kamel from Style&TheCity who invited me to use his photo scroll box thing. His pictures really are amazing.

I lovelove the cheap guide.
it's one of the best style books out there.
and ms piaggi is amazing. I really think that the likes of her and westwood are great examples of how older women should dress.
there was an excellent piaggi exhibition at the V&A a few years back which had lots of her infamous outfits, indluding the dress (?) made of newspaper.

great post, nice to see something a little different.

First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you don't mind.

I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
your head prior to writing. I've had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thanks!

intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could
be giving us something enlightening to read?
