Geek Peek: Anna Dello Russo

Style icon Anna Dello Russo will be coming to town tomorrow and Thursday to meet with Lane Crawford’s VIPs and share styling tips. Fashion Director at Large and Creative Consultant for Vogue Nippon, Anna has an eclectic fashion sense that transforms the most ordinary into the whimsical. Anna is rumoured to have over 4,000 pairs of shoes and us Geeks would die to take a peek into her closet. For those coveting Anna’s style, runway samples pre-selected by her will be available for Lane Crawford customers to pre-order. We ask Anna to tell us her three go-to outfits for the following occasions, and weigh in on her choices.

1. At the supermarket or the gym:
Abercrombie and Fitch.

Since neither of us has really shopped at good ol' A&F since our high school/college days, we were behooved to check out the brand of American classics. And yet... we couldn't imagine the gorgeous, always put-together fashion editor rocking items such as "Perfect Butt Sweatpants" and pseudo sports team tees. Then again, if Kate Lanphear can wear a Princeton sweatshirt to New York Fashion Week and have it be the coolest thing ever... then why not Anna in Abercrombie? Of course, when we mortals wear Abercrombie to the gym, we look like crap. But that's because we're mortals. And anyway, we don't go to the gym.

2. At a wedding or a gala dinner
Head-to-toe runway piece from the current season. For this season, I like Balmain, Dolce&Gabbana, and Emilio Pucci.

What surprised us here was the head-to-toe bit. With her love of statement pieces, outlandish accessories and let's face it, the spotlight, we would've thought she was more of a mix 'n match girl. A little bit 'o googling proved us right. In fact, the only head-to-toe look found was this Balmain... But anyway, like FashionGeek and ShoeGeek, that dress and those shoes really shouldn't be broken up anyway, they're like two peas in a pod.

3. At the beach
Marc Jacobs Bathing Suit

Now for the money question -- does Anna wear a one-piece or two? Or, God forbid, one of those things that can't decide if it's a one piece or a bikini or something the swimsuit pattern-maker dreamed up one night when he had leftover scraps of fabric and a leftover doobie. Since Marc Jacobs doesn't make such asinine garments, and Anna normally doesn't wear very revealing things (well, save for a see-through lace skirt here and there), we're going to go with one-piece, especially since Marc by Marc Jacobs has such wonderfully psychedlically chic pieces. A ruffle here, a polka dot there... the perfect example of restrained, cheeky glamour. We picked these photos because the model has similar hair, so we don't have to replicate that poor photoshop job up there. Your eyeballs are saved, and so is our precious time.
