Celebrated street style photographer and fashion illustrator Garance Dore posted today about how to catch the attention of street style photogs (including herself) during the Paris shows. Here are some of her choice tricks for “unleashing your inner Anna Dello Russo”:
Wear big sunglasses / Wear big corrective glasses / Wear a big hat â€”> TheÂ less youâ€™re seen, the more youâ€™re wanted.
Wear heels. Super high ones OR/AND super bizarre OR/AND superÂ colorful. If the heel is made of an old doorknob / legos / aÂ stuffed animal, +2 pts.
Mix improbable prints. [Ed. Note: God she is so right]
Donâ€™t platter yourself up, meaning, donâ€™t just stand there in theÂ position TAKE MY PICTURE in front of a show.Â Let yourself be desired. Or hey, even be uncooperative, itâ€™ll makeÂ getting a good picture that much better â€“ Everyone wants to get theÂ perfect picture of Anna Wintour because she would never stop to have her picture taken.
If they ask who you are, pretend like you canâ€™t speak English, orÂ French, or Japanese, or anything really. Just say your name and letÂ them imagine you are the editor in chief of Vogue from the FederatedÂ States of Micronesia.
