Get The Look: Effortlessly Editorial


As the assistant to the queen of over-the-top style, Anna Dello Russo, it comes as no surprise that Carlotta Oddi has a covetable look all her own. But while her boss has been known for sporting outrageous getups—the Alexander McQueen visor and Piers Atkinson cherry-on-top hat come to mind—Carlotta has a clean, classic aesthetic with an editorial edge. She was recently spotted in Paris, by Stockholm Streetstyle’s Daniel Troyse, wearing a Valentino coat and bag with Givenchy boots. Get her look with the essentials below.

Azealia Banks, Victor Of 2012, Takes Aim At 2013


Fashion rallied behind the cause of Azealia Banks in 2012: There were the umpteen performances (the Chanel after-party, the Karl launch party, the Anna Dello Russo x H&M party, the Terryworld Art Basel party), the endorsements (Azealia for T by Alexander Wang), the collaborations (Azealia x MAC), the Fashion’s Night Out performance, the red-carpet walk at the Met Gala. Today’s forecast? Twelve more months to come. Now spinning: “BBD” (that’s “Bad Bitches Do It”), the latest Banks track, released via Twitter and laced with enough four-letter words to make earphones at the office a solid recommendation.

More To Covet


Little Lagerfeld and mini Man Repeller? Oh yes. As a celebration of The Coveteur‘s new 2.0 version rollout today, the Web site created a short film featuring some of fashion’s biggest personalities (and some of the site’s past subjects), including Anna Dello Russo, Lagerfeld, Susie Bubble, Bryan Boy, and’s Tommy Ton. “We spent so much time on casting and styling—we wanted it to be spot on,” Erin Kleinberg, the site’s cofounder and creative director, tells As for the new and improved Coveteur, it’s got twice as many photos, has enabled visitors to create their own closet, and has a new integrated shopping experience allowing you to shop the closets of Rachel Zoe, Leandra Medine, Tommy Hilfiger, and more, directly on the site. Coming soon on The Coveteur, an inside glimpse into Hugh Hefner’s closet. “That was sort of a dream come true,” admits Kleinberg. “We love pajama dressing around here—it’s sort of an everyday occurrence at this office.” And the editors at the office are especially happy to hear they’ve got the Olsen sisters high on their To Be Coveted wishlist.

Anna Dello Russo’s Rules Of Fashion


For the inimitable Anna Dello Russo, rules are everything and nothing. “I play with the rules to break the rules,” the globe-galloping Japanese Vogue editor told yesterday at Eloise at the Plaza. She was there to launch her new H&M accessories collection, an ornamental fantasia of curling reptile bracelets, dominatrix boots, and turquoise-and-gilt everything, from earrings to roller bags. (See her “Fashion Shower” video for the collection here.) “The jewelry I made is completely crazy for a cheap collection, no? It’s out of scale, it’s all gold, enormous size and microscopic size. This is the way,” Dello Russo said. While we had her in declaration mode, we asked her for as many fashion guidelines as she’d give.

  • A faux pas is not a negative thing, it’s a positive.

  • Don’t carry a big handbag—it makes for a lot of trouble. A small bag is more personal, more about you.

  • Wear night clothes in the daytime. This is my favorite rule to break, because every day is a fashion day. Every day you have to be an optimist.

  • Be bold—always a provocative message. Don’t think about what people want from you. Have the philosophy of children. They don’t put limits on their fantasy.

  • I like to go to the airport perfectly dressed up. Then on the plane, I change into my Abercrombie pants.
  • If you’re not that important, you cannot be wearing sunglasses inside.

  • I prefer to go barefoot rather than wear cheap shoes.

  • Take the best from every woman that you know. I always copy women I see who dress well.

  • Take inspiration from books, magazines, literature, poets. Fashion needs a lot of culture.

  • Don’t eat or drink during a fashion show. It’s not polite.


A Street-Style Primer For The September Shows


New York fashion week officially kicks off in 20 days. That means that editors everywhere have likely begun planning outfits in hopes of getting snapped by the roving brigade of street-style photographers. While there’s no denying the can’t-drag-your-eyes-away fabulousness of oft-lensed subjects like Anna Dello Russo, Giovanna Battaglia, and those ubiquitous Russians, we’re always on the lookout for the next street-style stars. And lately we’ve noticed several girls with the potential to blast off at the upcoming shows. Take Eleonora Carisi (pictured). The Italian blogger and owner of the concept boutique You Store, in Turin, has a knack for putting together eccentric ensembles like the cartoonish Daniel Palillo dress she paired with a fuzzy yellow topper back in March. Esther Quek is another one who’s getting used to the flashbulbs; the fashion director of The Rake could teach the boys a lesson or two in tailored suits. Our own Tommy Ton recently called out Ursina Gysi (who is Camille Bidault-Waddington’s assistant) as one of his “most sought-after subjects.” We’ve got a hunch we’ll be seeing more of her and these other under-the-radar girls next month.
