>> Anna Dello Russo
knows her looks — which often see her wearing cocktail dresses at 10 am — can be something. "Sometimes I feel ridiculous," she admits, "but it's in a good way. Like the watermelon [headpiece], I love that. It's such an Italian touch of humor." But, she notes: "It's my first job to make myself up. I style myself like I style a model. You should put your passion on yourself before translating to other people." And although she's "uncharacteristically cagey about consultancy work," the Independent UK notes, Dello Russo does say that her extensive wardrobe isn't the result of gifts — and that her clothes are bought at retail. Why spend so much? "It's a job, but on me. It's like going to the dentist — if you go to the dentist and the dentist doesn't have beautiful white teeth . . . then how good is he?" [Independent UK]
