Before she became obsessed with fashion and more specifically shoes, here is Anna Del Russo:

Anna Dello Russo is an interesting fashion icon. She is a designer’s dream come true. Not only does she wear the latest runway looks but she sets the trends for the designers. Everyone wants her photograph, and everyone wants to see what she’s wearing.

I like this image Helmut Newton took of Anna Dello Russo. At the time he was the only one taking notice of how she dressed herself. Her posture is vastly different from any picture you would find of her now, yet she looks so chic and fashionable here. I like the silhouette she’s  created with the oversized coat, and may need to recreate this outfit some how.
