Anna Dello Russo: My Husband Left Me Because I Had Too Many Clothes

The Guardian caught up with Vogue Nippon editor Anna Dello Russo who offered her thoughts on, what else, fashion. She mused, "Fashion, in me, is folie, is sickness! I never bored of fashion. It is my vision for life. Reality for me is too tough. Fashion is an escape. Fashion! Is my addiction! Is better than drugs."

But how can ADR (as she's known to her adoring fans) afford her addiction? She once took W magazine into her two adjacent apartments in Milan -- one for her, another entirely for her clothes. The Guardian didn't come too close to finding out, with Anna saying, "Of course, I am journalist! Then I have discount, I am privileged!"

Interestingly, the conversation turned toward ADR's short-lived marriage (circa 1996):

"I lost my husband anyway. Because he said: 'Too much clothes, in your house!' He said to me: 'Where is the space for me?' I said: 'There is no space for you.' He says: 'Where is the space in the closet?' There is no space in the closet! He says: 'Are you crazy?' Then he left. No space for 'im!" She was married, she tells me, for a little over a month, and she wore a black Balenciaga two-piece on the day her divorce became official. "My dog, she doesn't need the space in the closet. She doesn't like clothes. I tried to put on some clothes, she hates!"

You can dress us up any time, Anna.
