This morning, as I was going through my emails, the saddest news popped up… Anna Piaggi had died at the age 0f 81.
I’ve always admired the Italian journalist for her incredible knowledge of fashion and, of course, for her eccentric style. To Anna Piaggi, fashion was art… in its most joyful sense! Here’s a look back at her most iconic looks!
As you probably know (or noticed in this post), Anna Piaggi had a thing for hats, and legendary street style photographer Bill Cunningham loved it! She was one of his favourite subjects for his On The Street column in The New York Times…
An amazing picture of them together! I love this image!
Before I let you go, here’s a picture I had taken of her just before the Christian Dior show at Paris Fashion Week, five years ago. The encounter was brief, but I had the proof that she was a lovely person!
