Franca Sozzani, 1950-2016

Very sad to hear the news today that Franca Sozzani has died. The groundbreaking editor of Vogue Italia, who once published an “all black” issue of the magazine, was a pleasure to photograph.

(Bunny ears are to Madonna as studded mask is to Lady Gaga?) Unlike many newly-minted pop stars, however, she has always been obsessed with fashion: Check out this WWD article on her as an indie rocker with style, before she hit the music stratosphere.

Her date is Marc Jacobs’ partner Lorenzo Matone, who also looked quite dashing.

See what the fashion set wore, after the jump…. (more…)
