I read the other day that fashion editor Anna dello Russo likes to wear her clothes exactly like the designer showed them on the runway, because she respects the designer's vision that much. Scott Schuman, The Sartorialist, was quoted in W saying that Anna truly loves fashion and what makes her so unique is that there is a real sincerity and that she respects the clothes.
No one dresses like that anymore I guess. Head-to-toe designer outfits are considered quite unfashionable now - you are meant to mix it all up, make the look your own, dress in high end and low end at the same time. At least that's how the fashion mags like to describe personal style. Yet I would venture to say there are a lot more very badly dressed people in the world since we've all been left to our own devices.
Maybe head-to-toe outfits should make a comeback. If you love fashion, you must watch To Catch a Thief, with Cary Grant and Grace Kelly. The clothes are spectacular. And everything is always matched.
PS. I am not actually saying head-to-toe has worked for Anna :)
