You Won't Believe How Much These Fashion Editors Spend On Their Outfits (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

To be a fashion editor, one must have excellent taste -- but does that mean expensive taste? For Anna Dello Russo and Giovanna Battaglia, definitely. In a new video for Moda Operandi, Dello Russo, an editor for Vogue Japan, quips:

Anna: "To me, I have to look expensive. I need a kind of fifty..."

Giovanna: "$50,000!"

Anna: "$50,000 each outfit a day."

Anna claims they were only kidding, but we decided to put this to the test by choosing two outfits the fashion editors have recently worn and tallying up the approximate cost.* Keep in mind that these numbers don't include the pricey hair and makeup products undoubtedly used along with any outerwear they may or may not have sported throughout the day. Here's just one example:

Giovanna Battaglia, editor of L'Uomo Vogue


Total cost of dress, shoes and earrings: $8,715

Anna Dello Russo, editor-at-large for Vogue Japan


Total cost of dress: $68,000

Enough said.

*We found comparable items by the same or similarly-priced designers to approximate the cost. These numbers are estimates and in no way 100 percent accurate.
