At the latest Chanel show for autumn/winter 2011, the always over the top Vogue Nippon editor, Anna Dello Russo, attended wearing a dress from designer of the moment, Mary Katrantzou. We guess that sounds pretty normal right? Dello Russo loves extravagant dresses and Katrantzou is known for her embellished graphic prints so it sounds like the perfect fit!
Well the designer that was recently in a BFC showcase in New York presenting her latest collection, wasn't so sure that she should lend the Vogue editor the dress. Not because Anna Dello Russo couldn't do the dress any justice- on the contrary- but because Katrantzou was worrying whether the editor would be able to sit down comfortably and watch the shows as the dress was made with delicate crystal flowers.
Anna quickly reassured her 'Mary I'm a pro', the designer told the New York times and the dress was returned in perfect condition."Maybe she has amazing leg muscles and just pretended to sit through the entire show," said the Greek designer, completely amazed.
Well if anyone could do it, Anna can!
