What would fashion be without the creative genius of fashion editors? Which make us fall in love with those beautiful lacquered pages of the fashion magazines.
As a definition, a fashion editor supervises the process of creating, developing and presenting content for the fashion department of a magazine, Web site, newspaper or television program.
They are the ones who keep our fashion imagination and taste fresh and make the magic happen!
So let’s be inspired by some of the most famous fashion figures of editor in chief of Vogue and their powerful style.
Anna Dello Russo:”Excess is the best”
Anna Dello Russo is the editor in chief for Vogue Japan and an international media icon! She is one of the most photographed editors and designers at fashion events worldwide. Her remarkable extravagance has captured the social networks’ imagination and turned her into a sensation.
From Italy to Japan her theatrical, baroque and playful eclectic style is considered by many to be the antithesis to the latest trend – minimalism.
As we can see from the pic above she is wearing a F. Sconamiglio green feathered jacket with matched jewels, black skirt and iconic sunglasses.
Another beautiful shot from these fashion weeks days: Anna is wearing a blue pleated dress with a pair of red shoes perfectly matched with the small black sunglasses.
If you want to remake this style, start from these Maui Jim Makaha sunglasses: very fashionable without a doubt!
On the other side of the Atlantic, we have the classy opulence of Anna Wintour!
Since 1988 she is the director of what is considered the most authoritative US and world fashion magazine: Vogue America. Always in the front row of the catwalks (or at least those she chooses to attend) is nicknamed the dragon-woman: chased by the paparazzi, feared by the interns.
Recognizing her is easy, because there are details that she never separates herself from – the frill with the fringe, the sunglasses, the Starbucks coffee cup.
Her outfits? Nude styles and printed dresses, while it is almost impossible to see her in trousers. Maybe because she thinks: “I’m powerful and I do not need to dress like a man to prove it.”
Diana Dalziel Vreeland (Paris, 1903 – New York, 1989) was a US-based journalist of French origin who was the fashion editor of Harper Bazaar and Vogue America.
She’s considered an icon of fashion and style in the sixties and she is still remembered as one of the most influential personalities in the industry!
She worked closely with Louise Dahl-Wolfe, Richard Avedon, Nancy White and Alexey Brodovitch and she was noted for taking fashion way too seriously.
Avedon said at the time of her death that “she was and remains the only genius fashion editor of all times”.
