Do you remember my last post on Anna Wintour? The one where I was telling you how hard it was for me to get her picture? Well it happened again this season only this time, I was really decided to get a correct shot of her. So I did, but let me tell you, it was not that easy!

The first time I saw her was outside the Versace show. I was shooting some street style pictures as usual and as I took a pause to chat with a friend, she appeared. But of course I was in the middle of a conversation, trying to debate whether the Iceberg show was worth it or not. So the time I realized she was there, she was already gone!

The second time I saw her was outside the Pucci show. I was still doing my thing, when she burst out of the venue so fast that again it was impossible to get her… I tried but even though she wears 4 inch heels, the lady does walk as fast as hell! Not to mention her two body guards… Then I saw her outside the Dolce and Gabbana show and again… She slipped through my finger. Then I told myself ok… You will never get her, she’s too fast for you!

But this was until the Ferragamo show! It turned out that she was sitting just in front of me (well she was sitting, whereas I created a seat for myself on the stairs). And who say show says nowhere to run! Which led to a mental conversation with myself : Whoa ha Anna, this time I got you!! And the truth is that I really like those pictures. They were taken just before show started. She was there, and like anybody, she was daydreaming…
