What I live for the most during fashion month aren’t the shows themselves but the atmosphere that surrounds the show. Of course I love nothing more than a good runway, I mean, I live for the runway, but recently I’ve been more inspired by seeing what people are wearing to the shows. I guess you can say that the streets themselves are a form of a runway and the people who roam it know how to prepare to be photographed in their perfectly styled outfits. As we all see on our favorite bloggers insta-stories they are all going to the same shows, have similar racks of clothing from the designated designers, yet they each style themselves so uniquely, and that’s what I find to be absolutely brilliant.
God bless the street style photographers who stand outside in rain or shine or blizzard tundra to capture the perfect image of these godly fashion creatures. It’s really due to them that we get to see and discover what fashion month is all about through a totally different lens.
My number one favorite street style star is Anna Dello Russo. I’m pretty sure she’s the reason why “street style” has become such a thing during fashion week. Did she invent it? Probably.
I literally live for her insanely bold outfits and how she can pull everything off as if she created the clothes for herself.
Think about it for a second. She pairs a parka with a fully sequined jump suit and black stiletto heels. Genius, no? I would never think to do that, but now that’s all I want to wear this summer. I’m convinced Anna Dello Russo is a fashion alien and I want to be a part of her tribe. Her ability to be fearless is what created my obsession with her to begin with. She is a true visionary and wins best street style every single fashion month.
