Anna Dello Russo to W?

Here’s a juicy tidbit from the rumor mill. There may be one crowning touch left to Tonchi’s overhaul of W, according to The Daily. During the Milan men’s shows, reports have surfaced that the new editor-in-chief may be trying to woo fellow Italian—and close friend—Anna Dello Russo. Russo’s official gig is Fashion Editor at Large for Vogue Japan, but she’s perhaps best known for her acute allergy to daywear. The statuesque editrix habitually arrives to fashion rows in full evening regalia (including opera gloves), never mind a 10 am show time, and tops off her morning cappuccino with piles of extravagant jewelry. It’s the sort of unapologetic embrace of fashion that sends bloggers and street-style snappers into a flashing frenzy. It’s also the kind of attention Tonchi may be vying for with the publication’s new incarnation.
