Anna Piaggi - a life of style

I love the Anna Piaggi's of the world - although they are few. In fact, now that dear Isabella Blow has passed on, Anna is almost entirely alone in her eclectic, eccentric, fantastically fanciful world fashion. A fashion editor who has worked at Italian Vogue and Vanity magazines at 71 she is still an authority on everything to do with fasion.

What I really love about her is that she stays true to herself and is unashamedly individualistic in her style. I admire people who could care less about the opinions of others...Her exotic fashion is the backdrop of her character and her extrodinary passion.

Last year the Victoria and Albert Museum in London exhibited a tiny portion of her 3000 frocks and 300 pairs of shoes. She has been quoted as saying that she has never worn an outfit more than once!
