Anna Dello Russo is a fashion journalist and stylist mostly known for her work as editor of Vogue Italia, L'Uomo Vogue, and Vogue Japan. Described by Helmut Newton as a "fashion maniac," Dello Russo studied history and Italian literature at the Domus Academy in Milan. Following a brief stint at Donna Magazine, she started working for Conde Nast, where she would stay for the majority of her career. A pioneer of fashion "street style" photography, in 2010 Dello Russo produced her own perfume, Beyond: The Scent of Anna Dello Russo.
