Another stylish Anna (not Wintour)

Miss Couturable has definitely been lacking the fashion-y posts lately -- mostly because well, the fashion world has been the last thing on my mind since getting my foot smashed by a bitter cab driver in Queens, New York. Susie Bubble is your go-to girl for extensive fashion commentary by a cute Asian girl anyways.

I've never had a real-life style icon -- I think Blair Waldorf's uptight and put-together style is very proper (goodness, I cannot stand sloppiness) and Carrie Bradshaw's designer extravagance is definitely a style that millions of girls strive for (and never achieve), but they're television characters and they are ideals, not reality. Sure, I think Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Coco Chanel, and Dita Von Teese all have beyond admirable style qualities that I want to emulate, but have never thought, "I want to be like her when I grow up," until I noticed the photos of Anna Della Russo, creative director of Vogue Nippon, on The Sartorialist:Without the slouching, though.

To quote one of the comments on the blog:
Fashion world's most over rated virtue: "efortlessness". Anna della russo's style is amazing and her own. The one thing it is NOT is effortless. And that is a good thing! Here is a woman who loves fashion and puts a lot of thought into the way she dresses...
I can't dress "effortlessly chic" because I just prefer primping myself up every morning, so I've never been able to find inspiration from the Kate Mosses of the world. I think I've finally found a real-life style icon of my own to admire.
