"Anna Della Russo is one of those great vanguards of fashion. A fine champion of ideas, beauty and creativity"
"Anna has a unique vibrancy... It’s something you can almost taste in the air and it’s definitely infectious. All that fun and frivolity she exudes mixed with a very Italian sense of extravagance, and her seemingly insatiable appetite for the bigger, better and brighter! She's like a beacon at Fashion Week. I can't wait until she starts getting sent two tickets for the shows: one for her, and one for her outfit! People like Anna are so important for the industry."
"Anna Dello Russo is a modern day fashion icon and she always holds the strength of her own convictions. She wears fashion with intelligence and her presence really gives a special energy to the clothes she wears. She has a great spirit and is a directional force in fashion today with an honest love and appreciation for it. I can't thank her enough for her support. She is such a warm person and you can tell she puts all her heart into what she does and how she embraces and directs fashion today."
"Everything that Anna wears is so beautifully alive, wrapped up in a fashion dream that would usually die after a show is over. She is like a hurricane that sweeps through the fashion world and reminds us that it is all about enjoyment and fun! Anna we love you!"
"Anna Dello Russo has an extraordinary energy. She is such a strong supporter of young designers and wears what you see on the catwalk. When she walks into a room, people notice. In particular, I love when she came to the Paris Vogue masked ball in the most fantastic, white dress. Amazing."
