anna dello russo j'adr

Her initials say it all – ADR. Anna’s signature seal of approval is “j’AdR,” a play on the French phrase “j’adore,” which means “I love it!” when talking about objects. I can think of few people who have more fun with fashion than Anna Dello Russo. Although she is creative director for Vogue Nippon (Japan), this footloose and fancy free goddess spends her days living the high life in Milan with her dog Cucciolina.

Anna Dello Russo (along with Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld, and Giovanna Battaglia) is responsible for the rise of the fashion magazine editor. The world wasn’t always interested in looking behind the scenes and beyond the celebrities, but Anna Dello Russo’s whimsical and bold style brings her into the spotlight more often than some of today’s top models. Anna is not afraid of color, showing off her legs, or experimenting with prints and textures.

Side note: I actually once got into an argument with a New York cabbie about whose style was better – Anna’s or Giovanna Battaglia’s. As a man, he thought AdR was much too crazy and Giovanna suited him better. I love both women for different reasons, but would argue that Anna’s willingness to take risks is admirable, creative, and keeps things interesting, whether she always hits the mark or not. For me fashion isn’t always about what you can picture yourself wearing or what you’re attracted to, but it is also an art form where colors, shapes, textures, and proportions create a 3D canvas.
