Sobbing. Gasping. I can’t. OMG. Anna Piaggi, long-time Italian Vogue editrix and all-around fashion GODDESS, famous for her vividly colored hair and super-eclectic style, died at her home in Milan today. She was 81. From the Daily News: “Piaggi, who contributed to dozens of Italian fashion magazines including Vogue Italia, was a runway fixture, garnering attention for her collection of hats, brightly colored fur stoles, and boas and prediliction for layering wild patterns. In 2006, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London put her astonishing collection of fashions on exhibit. The collection, dubbed ‘Fashion-ology,’ included 265 pairs of shoes, 29 fans, 932 hats, 2,865 dresses, 24 aprons, and 31 feather boas, according to the International Herald Tribune.” Fans of the larger-than-life fashion superstar took to Twitter to offer their condolences. “So sad to hear that Anna Piaggi, one of my last icons of beauty & fashion has passed,” wrote Dita Von Teese. “She was the height of glamorous eccentricity.” In the documentary Bill Cunningham: New York, the photographer Bill Cunningham described Piaggi as a “fine poet in clothes.” Which is about as nice a tribute as you can get. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sit under my desk and sob for a couple of hours. Gore Vidal and Anna Piaggi in one week. The world is a less colorful place, that’s for sure.
