Possibly, the Japanese Vogue gig pays so handsomely she can afford those two apartments and the hundreds of thousands of pounds’ worth of Prêt-à-porter. All she will offer is: ‘Of course, I am journalist! Then I have discount, I am privileged!'” Meanwhile, Dello Russo says she once tried to dress her dog up in clothes, but she hated it. [Guardian]
