THE 10 BEST FASHION FANATICS
They’re the ones who offer endless inspiration – the street style stars, fashion collectors and industry legends who eat, sleep and breathe fashion. We run down fashion’s biggest fanatics.
ANNA DELLO RUSSO
Editor-at-large of Vogue Japan and Italian super stylist Anna Dello Russo has become a household name, known for her frequent fashion week outfit changes, wacky taste in accessories and a legendary love of all things bold and bright as she jet-sets to fashion weeks around the world.
Super-blogger Susie Bubble’s fashion fanaticism knows no bounds –
her blogging takes her to fashion weeks and events all over the world,
combining the big names with those more off the beaten track,
searching out the next big thing in style.
Labelled as the only chic American woman by infamous Vogue editor Diana Vreeland, socialite Nan Kempner ran around New York in the top designers of the time from the 1950s to her death in 2005. Her collection of Yves Saint Laurent and others has been exhibited in the Met museum.
One of the major couture collectors of today, Mouna Ayoub’s dedication to fashion is so intense that top designers have special Mouna mannequins made so they can fit dresses exactly to her needs. Talk about tailor-made luxury!
One of the favourites of the street style pack, Russian editor and investor Miroslava Duma is the embodiment of fashion’s merry-go-round. Mixing top European designers and Russian labels with aplomb, she’s earned her spot on every best-dressed list.
Modern-day icon Kim Kardashian’s first taste of fashion was as closet organiser to Paris Hilton, but we think she’s now got a pretty major collection of her own to look after! Whether it’s super-glam Balmain or her romantic Givenchy wedding dress, when it comes to style Kim knows what she likes.
Editor-in-chief of Love and fashion legend Katie Grand has worked with everyone from Marc Jacobs to Alexander McQueen, and rumour has it her own sprawling wardrobe, drawn from her years of travel and work, takes up an entire floor of her home.
Part of the first generation of fashion blogging celebs, online sensation Bryanboy has worked his way up from blogging in his parents’ house to sitting front row at fashion shows and having a bag named after him by Marc Jacobs, turning himself into an aficionado of fashion today. He favours brights, bling and bold pieces.
ANDRÉ LEON TALLEY
Stalwart of the New York fashion scene, André Leon Talley has seen it all. From his days at Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine in the 1970s and as assistant to Diana Vreeland, to his current position as ‘unofficial representative’ of Vogue, his major presence in the fashion world is legendary. As is his love of Ralph Rucci outfits.
A perennial of the street style blogs and buyer at Selfridges, Tiffany Hsu sees a lot of beautiful clothes. And it shows in her enthusiasm for an on-trend mix of bright separates and girly shapes, all with a streetwear edge, all courtesy of the hottest designers from around the world, of course.
