Anna Della Russo of Vogue Nippon wearing I don't know who but evidently she doesn't leave the house in any outfits that total up to less than $50,000 according to the Daily Mail. During Fashion Week she changes several times a day.
With her gal pal W contributing editor, Giovanna Battaglia. Giovanna made No.1 on The Cut's top 25 best-dressed from PFW btw.
After the show they came out wearing different shoes. These hot tinseled slingback heels from the show worn with athletic socks. For more Rochas show details check The Cut.
Who R U? The photographers race to shoot somebody. No clue who she is but I tag along. Some show up dolled up with no entry ticket just hoping the photogs will shoot em.
I do recognize the discrete back of NYTimes photographer, Bill Cunningham.
Post-show I spot US Vogue Grace Coddington in what looks black PJs. No doubt very comfortable with all the shows she clocks in per day. And no, Anna Wintour was not there but enough other biggies to warrant this is an important show. Getting tickets is not easy. And very slim chances for your everyday blogger. OK I have a snowball's chance of getting in. You write PR months in advance and then pray. I'll try next time round but don't hold your breath.
Vogue's Hamish Bowles is onboard (and holding a Diptyque notebook by the way - I saw those at Maison Objet).
I loved some of the shapes of the clothes.I have never seen so much style in one hour as I did watching the Rochas show arrivals. Great fun and terrifically inspiring. Perhaps even better than going inside?!
The hairdo of the hour is this tiny bun at the nape of the neck by this Russian stunner, Olga Karput with what appears to be not a stitch of makeup on. You tell me.
More librarian buns.Note very few of the so call de rigeur scarves are worn by this haute-stylish gang.
I'm calling this the "Charlotte Bronte/Jane Eyre" look. The stylists can call it what they want but the sleek, austere head is evident. I somewhat butchered a fabulous Tim Walker photo but this is how I feel. Exhilarated and a tad pooped, but SO much fun. Stay tuned PBers for more.
PS I had to cut out a lot of photos to publish this post sadly. More pics on Flickr!
