From their first meeting in 1973 in Paris, Karl and Anna were inseparable. Karl drew his very first portrait of Anna on a Chinese restaurant napkin, immortalizing their feasts and the brand new short haircut Henry Hebel of Vidal Sassoon had imagined for Anna.
They made many trips together to Karl’s houses in Brittany, in Monte Carlo and in Paris or in luxury hotels to the rhythm of the fashion shows.
Karl liked to paint her portrait in private as well as at the social gathe- rings they liked to attend. Anna was his source of inspiration for more than thirty years through her metamorphoses and extravagant outfits, signatures of this true fashion addict chameleon.
Fashion expert, journalist, first at Vanity Fair and then at Vogue Italy, she became Editor-in-Chief with her famous Double Pages column. A true fashion visionary, incredible creature of the Fashion System, she was also a collector and avant-garde in her choices of styles and influences.
She never went unnoticed with her blue locks, cheekbones and bright red lips. She loved the most eccentric outfits matched with the most incredible hats.
