Eccentric Vogue stylist Anna Dello Russo poses with giant stiletto (and tiny dog) in Milan to launch her H&M accessories line

She's famous for her eccentric style – and needs an entire flat to house her gargantuan wardrobe – but even Anna Dello Russo has to draw the line somewhere.
Instead of wearing these giant golden boots – currently on display in Milan – she had to content herself with posing next to them instead.
To promote her widely anticipated accessories collection for H&M, Dello Russo has also been spotted in London – this time with a super-sized turquoise cuff.

Gold rush: Dello Russo and her pet dog pose next to the gigantic shoe in Milan.
The cuff, brought in especially for London Fashion Week, is now back in its box, while the boot can be seen until the end of Milan Fashion Week.
But while the over-sized accessories might be strictly limited edition, the same can't be said for the human-sized range.
Next week sees the launch of Dello Russo's collection at an exclusive party in Paris, with the range hitting shops next Thursday.
'Accessories are vital,' said Dello Russo. 'Not only [do] they allow you to play with fashion however you like, [they] mark your outfits with a personal touch.'
She added: 'Wear a necklace, bracelet and earrings, hold a clutch and top it all of with a hat, and everything becomes new.
'Accessories are like vitamins to fashion: you should use them liberally as such.'

Going for gold: Dello Russo dances with a gold and turquoise clutch from her new collection for H&M.
The collection features jewellery,
sunglasses, shoes and bags, predominantly in gold, with vibrant hues of
turquoise and orange, and animal motifs including snakes and crocodiles.
DELLO RUSSO'S FASHION RULES

Shoes include sky-high stilettos, also in gold, and tight dominatrix-style boots.
Dello Russo's collection also includes some elaborate jewellery, with chunky stone-drop earrings, opulent pearl cuffs, and a fabulously eccentric feathered top hat among the pieces on offer.
The pick of the bags is the bright turquoise trolley suitcase with an embossed gold motif.
While the collection isn't for shrinking violets, it is at least normal sized.
But true to Dello Russo's madcap form, the giant boots and cuff aren't the only eccentric stunt the fashionista has pulled off while promoting the new range.
Just a few weeks ago, Dello Russo appeared in a hilariously camp music video in which she outlined her top 10 fashion rules while sporting a PVC dress and, of course, plenty of accessories.
