Fashion Editor Style

A young child might look at this photo and say, “Oh, look, clowns!” But we know better.

(TheShoeGirl and Rosie, that means you.)

  1. That’s okay it is my daily look so I can oblige, I’m just getting dressed to take the petit garcon to swimming lessons so my hair might not be done!

  2. Vy says:

    Wow, Anna Dello Russo looks quite amazing!
    Sisterwolf, this video was recently posted on her website, I was struck by how similar your speaking styles are (disregarding the language of course).
    It can be watched here:
    and then compare and contrast with your last video (with a bit of French peppered in it)

  3. Joy D. says:

    I love ADR and I love that these editors get their 15 in spotlight. That being said, I really want to do this challenge this time.

  4. deja pseu says:

    Bringing the cray cray, as Tom and Lorenzo would say. But hey, that’s Bill Cunningham in the background!

  5. Suebob says:

    Michael Jackson is STILL ALIVE?

  6. E says:

    What’s with the fence-paint legs? I’m so not fashion.

  7. Aja says:

    I think Anna Della Russo has AWESOME legs. Day-um gurrrl.

  8. Queen Marie says:

    Much as I would love to join in the fun, it would mean getting my legs out and no-one has seen them (including me) since about 1990!!!!!, you will need to count me out.


  9. JK says:

    What is it about their knees? Has this pic been Photo-Shopped?

  10. Sister Wolf says:

    Vy – Ooooh, now I want to just speak French and wave my hands around! Thanks for the link!

    JoyD – You can do this!

    Suebob – Yep, just like Elvis.

    Queen Marie – But wait, they often cover their legs, I just saw ADR in a trouser suit at one of the shows in Paris. You can KILL THIS LOOK, Queen Marie.

  11. theresa says:

    leigh lezark looks dumb. I think she has a boring awkward try hard style. but she has all the cool chanel gun and disco ball heel shoes….

  12. TheShoeGirl says:

    Ahhhhh shit…. I’m packing for London but you called me out so I gotta see what I can do………….. Please hold. 😉

  13. TheShoeGirl says:

    Ok… sent! haha ♥

  14. Sister Wolf says:

    UH OH, TheSHoeGirl and Theresa are already killing it. Get in on this one, you have a couple of days, no excuses!

  15. Elena Abaroa says:

    I love Anna, she is tacky and ridiculous, I never would dress like her if I had her money, but al last she doesnt pretend. I like the fact that she recognises she is a fashin victim instead the other voguettes, who think they are not victims cause they wear messy hair and less makeup. They are all fashion victims and Anna is the only one who is not ashamed about what she is. She is good fun too, I love to see her outfits, I never get bored of her 🙂

  16. the real andrea says:

    i think she looks like a hooker most of the time. No one dares say anything because she is an “editor”. I wonder if she has any room in her life for another person. Does she have any other interests? Does she do anything besides yoga (so she can wear the clothes) and clothes? And Elena Abaroa mentioned an interesting fact- that all these fashion victims (editors) make it a point not to wear any makeup, like they are so above it all, like they’re not even trying. Ha, we know better.

    Does anyone notice how all these people in the street style photos always stand like they are pigeon toed? What’s up with that?

  17. TheShoeGirl says:

    I don’t know any editor’s names besides Anna Wintour and I don’t even know if she’s an editor. Oh and Joe Zee. Is he an editor?

  18. Sister Wolf says:

    TheShoeGirl – Carine Roitfeld is editor of French Vogue, Anna del Russo is Vogue Japan (I think.) Joe Zee…he is definitely someone.

    ps. Get me something with a Union Jack! OR a Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut bar xo

  19. JK says:

    If it’s a Union Jack you’re needing, I suggest ordering the appropriate tartan patterned long-johns for David. The woman with the image of Jesus on her kneecap should be able to provide an address for the proper catalog.

  20. enna. says:

    YES! I feel like I should go down to Nordstrom and borrow some sufficiently ridiculous shoes for this challenge.

  21. Sister Wolf says:

    enna – YES, because they’ll let you return them!!!

  22. Tina says:

    I can’t wait!!! These contests are great!!!

  23. TheShoeGirl says:

    Enna Nordstrom has the Kirkwood shoes that SJP wears all over the place… the turquoise ones. Those would give you instant Editor style status 😉
    And yes!! RETURNS!

  24. Brie says:

    The only thing I like about this photo is the yellow shoes which do not go with the shoe wearers dress. Both outfits are hoplessly too young for the wearers, something I rarely say since people should wear what they want. In this case, I had to say that because it is true.

  25. Sheri says:

    Still laughing about the “Oh, look, clowns!”

  26. Cricket9 says:

    Anna del Russo is wearing Carrie Bradshaw’s tutu gone executive. Leigh looks like she’s on skates. Joe Zee is someone (art director???) at american Elle.

  27. marie says:

    can’t participate, but can not wait to see the results. especially hoping for entries from RedHeadFashionista and Aja. and of course, this is perfect for TheShoeGirl.

  28. Sister Wolf says:

    marie – BUT WHY NOT?!?

  29. aine says:

    If anyone could recreate tim gunn’s anecdote about anna wintour making her bodyguards carry her around after a show because her heels were too high that would be amazing.

  30. OMG I am BEYOND excited about this. Don’t think I’ll be participating this time (all my ‘mad’ clothes are still at home) but I look forward to watching The Shoe Girl and co KILL IT.
    PS Is it wrong that I think Leigh Lezark looks amazing? If it is, I don’t want to be right.

  31. Awww marie! I am touched. I may have to enter just for you. I’m sure I can find something appropriately snooty and find a quiet spot in my house to pose, away from the dubious eyes of my landlady.
    Oh I’m excited. I’m thinking hats.

  32. marie says:

    awesome. if RHF enters the scales balance, right? i don’t have the resource of time or wardrobe for this challenge.

  33. annemarie says:

    i’m pretty sure that when i was a little kid i would have wanted to dress EXACTLY like Anna dello Russo when I was grown up. Now that I am grown-up however, I have better things to do than put in the hours of body maintenance (waxing/ tanning/ toning) required to wear these clothes well. Also, I don’t like being gawped at. Still, i like looking at pics of ADR because she always looks ecstatically happy, and that makes me smile.

  34. Hilarious. Can’t wait.

  35. Erika says:

    I wish I had the time to dress like this and spend hours at the gym every day. The Leigh girl however looks liek a sci-fi movie extra.

  36. Srenna says:

    I don’t understand ADR’s jacket?

  37. Dusk says:

    I am surprised that Anna della Russo is not on your shit list. This story and accompanying images should have sealed the deal for you;

    I didn’t get the point of ‘ADR’ but now, you know, whatever… I like her attitude.

  38. Libby Harkin says:

    Well not really much to add here as this was superbly written. I can say that this was definitely what I was looking for though. I can’t count how many times I have looked on a blog for something and came up with something completely unrelated like searching for work boots and coming up with high heels, or something like that. You know, while we are on the topic of this industry, you have to admit that it is becoming more and more diluted with a bunch of BS rather than quality information such as this article. I will definitely add this one to my list of RSS feeds. I just hope you keep it updated more often than you are right now, hah! Anyways, have a nice day and nice post.
