    Yet another long overdue thread...for the massively talented Elissa Santisi:
    During her decade-long tenure as American Vogue's Style Director, Elissa Santisi emerged as fashion's pre-eminent accessories stylist. Santisi, a Philadelphia native, has created stories which are wittily inventive and strikingly original. Her eye has meant that she has often been ahead of the curve on new trends, and her work has always recognized the iconic power of the right shoe and bag, predating today¹s obsession with "it" status accessories.

    In her 20-year career, Santisi has done innumerable fashion, accessory, celebrity and beauty sittings for American Vogue, Teen Vogue and Harper's Bazaar. Photographers she has worked with include Raymond Meier, Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, David Sims, Miles Aldridge, Patrick Demarchelier, Michael Thompson and Terry Richardson.

    Elissa Santisi currently resides in New York.

    Thanks for starting this thread :woot:.

    Although she is now a contributing editor at US Vogue...so she's been doing other stuff. Quite a few eds in Vogue China from her this year.
