If there was one thing certain during the past 15 years of attending  fashion shows, I knew I would see fashion icon and legend Anna Piaggi front row with her rosy cheeks in an exotic and eclectic blend of clothing, and an eccentric hat.  In memory of this authentic eccentric journalist, fashion historian, vintage collector, subject of exhibitions, and someone who had fun in fashion, I tip my Rod Keenan hat and salute Ms. Piaggi's passion for fashion.  May the style of Anna Piaggi endure and inspire for decades to come and may we all don a hat of epic proportions and smile and enjoy playing dress up!
