Guess Who I Sat Behind At The Kanye West "Runaway" Premiere in Paris?

Yes, Anna Dello Russo and her headpiece!

She's really one of the most charming characters in fashion today.

OMG :) This is SO Anna!!!!

Amazing woman!



Anonymous Vermine said ... (3:05 PM) : 

Thought it would have been Tavi...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:05 PM) : 

I can't decide whether or not she is selfish or just fashionable. Either way I love her


Blogger Marthita Estrada said ... (3:08 PM) : 

How was the movie by the way? I've heard that is great, a masterpiece...
You went to the Paris premiere too didn't you? Pics please


Anonymous America said ... (3:08 PM) : 

I was thining of being a peacock for halloween this year, but after seeing the silhouette of this hat i might as well just be Anna dello Russo!


Blogger Marthita Estrada said ... (3:09 PM) : 

So, how the movie? I've heard it is great, a masterpice. Pics please... Kanye's outfits lately have been great, why don't you post some of them?


Blogger Trivia said ... (3:09 PM) : 

Is covering half the view charming?..


Blogger Michelle Bobb-Parris said ... (3:09 PM) : 

Ha! Awesome.

I guess the one time one wouldn't care/dare to ask the lady to kindly remove her hat.

Not blocking the view, but part of it.

She is indeed fantastic.



Blogger Bronwyn said ... (3:10 PM) : 

Anyone who wears a headpiece that big to an event where people behind her want to be able to see, is also rather inconsiderate of others, wouldn't you say?


Blogger Cinta said ... (3:10 PM) : 

hahaha i love the picture!
xxx, cinta from trapped in her closet


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:11 PM) : 

I hope you were able to see through those wonderful feathers. LOL!

Also, can you tell us/clarify a bit about this "Kaye West Runaway Premiere."



Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (3:11 PM) : 

Wow, you are pretty damn lucky!


Blogger SAMO said ... (3:12 PM) : 

Did you see anything? Hehehehe...


Blogger Gustavo Muñoz said ... (3:13 PM) : 

My guess would have been Lady Gaga


Blogger Isis Diaz said ... (3:13 PM) : 

Love the headpiece! HOW EXCITING!


Blogger Grace Escudero - The Afeminada said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Anna cracks me up! I enjoy her outfits so much.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:18 PM) : 

So her headpiece blocked people's views? Doesn't sound so charming to me.


Blogger BECKY MAY said ... (3:24 PM) : 

if it were any other person - this would be annoying



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:24 PM) : 

This reminds me of the journalist who complained he saw a show through Tavi's gigantic bow... except you're not complaining!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:25 PM) : 

Charming, maybe. I would think "selfish" might be a better descriptor of someone who wears that when sitting front row. The show isn't about her is it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:26 PM) : 

Wow that was a huge thing! But she is really awsome!


Blogger Pao said ... (3:28 PM) : 

Lucky you!



Blogger Notes From ABroad said ... (3:33 PM) : 

I wonder at what stage in your life you begin to just think, F* it, I am wearing a full feathered head dress and to Hell with the people sitting behind me ...

Who would have the nerve to say, Madam, would you removed that bird from your head during the show ?



Blogger Frozen Fashion said ... (3:38 PM) : 

What a delightful chance encounter to add to your day:)

Her hat is perfect with the ballerina images!


Blogger lia said ... (3:40 PM) : 

hahaha!!! fun!!!



Blogger Kate.Stoltzfus said ... (3:40 PM) : 

I love this photo. Fashion can be so serious. This is fun!


Blogger Sylvia Etc... said ... (3:44 PM) : 

this picture captures a 'true' fashion moment, Anna is such a wonderful fashion figure!


Anonymous fashionsdirtylaundry said ... (3:53 PM) : 

That headpiece is shooting up to icon status!


Blogger Alice Olive said ... (3:59 PM) : 

Her blog is amazing, too. The little golden twinkles that waft down the screen when you move your mouse/cursor etc is very fabulous!


Anonymous Caroline said ... (3:59 PM) : 

She totally is.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:10 PM) : 

Agree w/Bronwyn. She could have at least sat in the back row so as not to block anyone's view.


Blogger Rosa creativa said ... (4:11 PM) : 

Thats so cool!!! She is awesome... I wrote about her a few days ago because she is one of my inspirations :) I love that she have so much fun with her dressing


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:11 PM) : 

Where oh where does she get the money for all this clothes?


Blogger Marina said ... (4:12 PM) : 

as a ballerina :)


Anonymous l'habitué said ... (4:26 PM) : 

This is so incredible.
I guess it had to be Anna!


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (4:38 PM) : 

Did she cause a stir like Tavi with her big head gear?


Blogger Unknown said ... (5:07 PM) : 

Love the photo - awesome silhouette of the fabulous Anna!


Blogger CaliforniaCandy said ... (5:08 PM) : 

Now that's how you make a statement!


Anonymous jimjims said ... (5:08 PM) : 

wow... hah!

this is amazing!


Anonymous micio said ... (5:17 PM) : 

How incredibly rude!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:23 PM) : 

haha, i also thought it must be tavi!


Blogger Rafael Franco said ... (5:42 PM) : 


I really love Anna Dello Russo, she is so chic and unique.

kisses from Brazil*


Blogger ÖğrenÖğret said ... (6:07 PM) : 

Okay, so why not remove the enormous (yes beautiful indeed) headpiece while watching a screen with many people behind you unable to see a significant part of it?!
She could afterwards put it back on her head to remain fabulous.
Consideration + Style = Gratitude + Glamour.


Anonymous Isabelle said ... (6:12 PM) : 

I would have guessed Lady Gaga.. but it looks like more and more people are copying her crazy style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (6:15 PM) : 

She is great, but this is definitely the discourteous side! There are some situations in which it's more elegant not to draw attention to oneself.


Anonymous Anna B said ... (7:15 PM) : 

I really don't see the charm in blocking other people from seeing the screen. No, I really don't see it.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:31 PM) : 

AWWW man i thought you sat behind Lady Gaga and her head piece. well it was still cool


Anonymous alexandra said ... (7:57 PM) : 

totally thought it was gaga .. haha oops


Blogger Ella said ... (8:01 PM) : 

Lucky duck! She's so inspirational, I always imagine her as the adult version of Tavi Gevinson...


Blogger Meghan Pickrell said ... (8:03 PM) : 

I take it they didn't do a "hat speech" before the show...Oh well, at least it was an experience.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:09 PM) : 

She is so adorable


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:32 PM) : 

It's one thing to wear a fabulous headpiece. It's another to wear it all the way through a film screening, disrupting others' ability to see and enjoy the film and essentially insuring that one's own presence has more impact on some viewers than the film or event itself. Sorry, Sart, but I see nothing charming about that. Arrogant and self-indulgent, yes; charming, no.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:40 PM) : 

wow that's an interesting head piece, sort of reminds me of grass, but tops for her :)


Blogger Sarah said ... (9:53 PM) : 

Awesome. I totally agree that it would be annoying if it were anyone else and she is very adorable. Cool picture!


Blogger Jennifer said ... (10:32 PM) : 

That is NOT 'charming' at all. I don't give a damn who it is, if it was the President wearing a hat that obstructed my view, I'd ask him to remove it. That's just plain rude.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:42 PM) : 

i thought it was going to be tavi. what a precious baby blogger.


Anonymous Maryanne said ... (10:42 PM) : 

Cher did this look in 1986 at the Oscars.
Bob Mackie headress.


Anonymous Jason said ... (11:48 PM) : 

Fabulous, but I would hate to sit behind her in any sort of event; how inconsiderate.


Blogger Arantxa Chavarria said ... (12:25 AM) : 

i totally agree with YOU!!! only she would wear those headpieces..


Blogger KC said ... (1:35 AM) : 

i thought it was tavi. but yeah, so anna as well.


Anonymous BC said ... (2:06 AM) : 

Gorgeous headpiece and beautiful juxtaposition with the ballerinas on the screen but a little inconsiderate. Perhaps that's the point?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:38 AM) : 

LOL I was thinking it was her. Honestly I love her, but I don't think I would ever want to sit behind her. I'd be sad like one of those people who go to a concert only to end up behind a sign of a screaming girl or at an awards show behind lady gaga and her meat dress or one of her head pieces....sad.


Blogger paristempslibre said ... (2:45 AM) : 

so cool! but a bit difficult for you..


Blogger the inspired said ... (2:53 AM) : 

Ahhh she is my fashion idol!


Blogger Eilish said ... (3:01 AM) : 

haha.. this made me smile :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:34 AM) : 

She does not know what else to do to catch attention... where's the limit?


Blogger Clay Douglass said ... (4:00 AM) : 

What is better? Sitting in front of her and seeing the show or sitting behind and seeing the headpiece?

Blogger TheStreetFashion5xpro said ... (4:25 AM) : 

you're right Scott...She's really one of the most charming characters in fashion today...great post

I love hats, but this is kind of selfish at a fashion show!

Perhaps charming, definetely not chic


Blogger 82Brute said ... (9:20 AM) : 

My first guess would have been Lady Gaga. I'm glad you found it charming. I would not have been so charitable had I been forced to gaze upon her folly when I had come to see something else.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:35 AM) : 

Uproar when Tavi wears a huge headpiece to a show, but charming when Anna does the same thing? Hmm.


Blogger Mertxe Hernàndez said ... (9:40 AM) : 

nice photo !


Anonymous Chele said ... (11:02 AM) : 

You know, I love her, and I LOVE her fearless, fun sense of style! But......I can't help but think it's a tiny bit rude - if you know you are going to a film or show - to wear something that you know will mar the experience of others? So as much as I adore her, better judgement next time maybe? And long live the ADR's of the world who dress for fun & fabulousness...not for trends!xxo


Blogger Sophia said ... (11:07 AM) : 

Great Shot! The headpiece looks amazing. But it isn't too nice for the one that is seated behind her (:


Anonymous Séverine said ... (11:17 AM) : 

hahaha you were in Dello-Russo-vision ?...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:47 AM) : 

She's fabulous, but it's rather rude to block the view... I'm surprised she would do that.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:26 PM) : 

Anna is ever Anna and her style is the most interesting respect on the other fashion editors...The "vey famous" Mrs Wintour hasn't a quarter of Anna's style and sense of fashioN!


Anonymous L N said ... (12:45 PM) : 

For a second I thought is was Tavi as well. Hmm, did this take away from the film?


Blogger Bell said ... (12:49 PM) : 

charming characters in fashion today?
ha ha ha, Ridiculous


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:21 PM) : 

Anna's hat is far more important than you having an unobscured view!

I can't help but think of Isabella Blow ... and how much I miss seeing her in the fashion scene. It's good to see her influence on the next generation.

Blogger AnAzevedo said ... (2:48 PM) : 

Anna is unique.

perhaps a little in the way? none the less, amazing!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:18 PM) : 

Believe me, this hat is more interesting than the flick......


Anonymous Marco Nardella said ... (5:15 PM) : 

Anna loves fashion without being fashionista. She has the inner capabilities to be both eccentric, sophisticated and simple. Marco


Blogger A blog with pics and notes said ... (6:32 PM) : 

uff, anna, uff!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (9:56 PM) : 

I knew it was Anna even before I scrolled down! haha Shes the best!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:30 PM) : 

Maybe Sart was being ironic about the "charming" part? Maybe by taking this picture and posting it, he would like Anna to realize how her ridiculous fashion can come at the cost of others!

Just my thoughts...:)

the headress may have look amazing, but i'm sure he was frustrated at his masked view.


Blogger Tess said ... (8:27 AM) : 

Ohhhhhh Anna. She would wear a head piece like that to a showing of a Kanye West music video. Totally inappropriate for the occasion but you got to love her for having the guts to wear things like that. God I love her.

check out my post of vintage fashion photos today!



Blogger rose said ... (10:34 AM) : 

Not many people can still attract attention when they are sitting in silence in the dark. Anna being a clear exception :)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:31 PM) : 

I would say inconsiderate, not charming. Why didn't she sit in the back row so everyone else could see the film?


Blogger Meera said ... (9:53 PM) : 

A legendary picture.


Anonymous Lucia said ... (6:42 AM) : 

Anon.. 10.30 PM, I was actually thinking the same after a while.. Yeah maybe Sart is a bit ironic about it?!

I don't know Anna DR , I have never ever met her, or seen her live, so I am not the right person to critizize her, but as she is a media person, and a person who enjoys being in the middle of happening, I am sure she can take critics from unknown people.
Some famous people in the fashion business seems to me NICE, i.e everyone prob agree that Garance seems to be a really NICE person. The same thing I see in Kate Lanphear, and in Viv. Its something about the face and the smile, and of course what qualities speaks to me. Some one else might find Viv's smile totally annoying i.e. But in ADR, no, I do not see anything Nice in her. She might be lovely actually, but a person who blocks the view like that, can't be really nice.. or charmig can she..?
OR maybe she removed the head piece right after Sart had his picture taken..?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:55 PM) : 

great photo!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:27 AM) : 

Oh, I wish you would have taken a picture of her afterward in the light. I would have loved to seen the entire outfit.

i was going to guess lady gaga or tavi. i've never heard of this woman, thanks for sharing. love the photo.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:31 PM) : 

I'm on the side of those who think it's inconsiderate. I'm pretty sure she wouldn't have been OK sitting behind someone who did the same thing.

Blogger 82Brute said ... (7:27 AM) : 

I wanted to add another comment about this shot. At first I only saw my own annoyance, but it's actually an amazing shot. There's humor, irony and the composition is marvelous. The silhouetted feathers looming over the dancers in their purple tulle is lovely and seems a nod to Degas.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:54 PM) : 

Haha, 82Brute is totally right! Everyone goes on about if this is annoying or charming, but actually the picture itself is great! And there is a lot of humor in it.


Blogger 82Brute said ... (5:39 PM) : 

Re: Humor in the shot. It also brought to mind a classic Bugs Bunny cartoon called "Hare Do". Go to 2:24 for the moment.


Blogger Dick Goodnuts said ... (7:37 PM) : 

The Runaway film was outstanding! Accept it for what it is and don't get caught up in what the media says about the creator and you will enjoy the story.


Blogger derek said ... (10:29 PM) :

She's so brilliant and chic and the video of Kanye is amazing!!!

for a second i was thinking tavi because of the big bow she once wore . but she's tiny , so she wouldn't have blocked you . ha ha ha .

Reminds me of Isabella Blow...


Blogger Julia, the Thanksgiving Girl said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Hahaha, how unfortunate to be seated right behind her when she's wearing THAT lol


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (5:01 AM) : 

i'm also on the side who thinks it's inconsiderate. no matter how beautiful/stylish/fashionable the hat/headpiece, one should always have it off when it's blocking the way of another, or at the dinner table, and other such social situations where taking it off would be the norm.

no exceptions to the person or headpiece!


Anonymous Zana Fauzi said ... (8:42 AM) :
