The fashion world mourned a legend yesterday after it was announced that Anna Piaggi passed away at the age of 81.
The style legend and Vogue Italia contributor was a well known face of the fashion front-row - she even graced VFS with an appearance at our first catwalk showcase in 2007 - and was a muse to a plethora of designers, including Manolo Blahnik and Karl Lagerfeld.
Eccentric, vibrant and a true fashion inspiration to all - Anna Piaggi, you will be greatly missed.
