The Weight of Anna Dello Russo's Gareth Pugh Masquerade Ball Headpiece Gave Her a Headache


>> There's
that old adage about beauty is pain; for Anna Dello Russo, fashion is pain. She admits that the custom Pucci gown and Gareth Pugh headpiece she wore to Vogue Paris's 90th Anniversary masquerade ball were a bit impossible: "A headpiece; a huge train; high wedges. When I came back after the Vogue ball I had a headache because the outfit was so heavy on my head." Garance Dore wrote of Dello Russo at the party: "She is amazing… But she can’t really move. So we make a circle of friendship around her. We bring her something to drink and make conversation…." When asked how she got around, Dello Russo replied, "In the car, leaning in the back seat. Someone helped me — my driver!" And for Halloween, she says she's wearing "something good, but I want to dance this time, and I want to enjoy myself a little bit more with my friends, so it will be a little bit easier." [Nowness]
