Nice outfit, I like the cut of the shirt, and the shoes are so originals!

This whole outfit does seem to be very original. What’s interesting about it to me is that I’m not particularly partial to any of the items, but because they’re worn together with such confidence, and because this women just seems to exude a chic energy, I’m still somehow attracted to it. Proves that fashion is an attitude as much as an art.

Very true; confidence is the best accessory. However, while the outfit is not terribly original (white shirt, black skirt), I find the shirt to be a little unique in the way it is tailored.

she always looks so sophisticated but with a twist – these shoes are proof of that!
October 22, 2012 at 2:37 am
she never misses! :)

Love the white shirt..hate the shoes.
October 21, 2012 at 9:17 am
I love her shoes!
October 21, 2012 at 3:01 pm
I really agree with you, the shoes are so unflattering.
October 21, 2012 at 9:21 am
i love her shoes!! http://www.tokyofaces.com
October 21, 2012 at 9:23 am
She can’t do no wrong fashion wise, I love how creative she can be with her outfits and his work. I love that she let the shoes be center of the attention and kept everything else simple yet chic.
October 21, 2012 at 9:27 am
Love her and her style, I’m not sure about the shoes though…
October 21, 2012 at 9:32 am
What a wonderful treat for the senses. Scary shark’s tooth sandals.
No buttonholes on her blouse–snaps? A walking riddle just waiting be solved.
October 21, 2012 at 9:44 am
I love her, her style is always amazing. I am a really big fan !

Dicen que todo lo que suele llevar en no importa qué fashion week, se lo prestan las firmas. No sé si es cierto, pero independientemente de ello, Giovanna siempre ofrece unos outfits impecables cargados de un gran estilo. Un saludo

Love Giovanna style but not this shoes!

She’s ever chic!

Great photo. Black and White is always a great choice. So elegant. I love the crisp white shirt and the little bag.

She looks perfect, as always!

the shoes!!!! :-D
October 21, 2012 at 11:10 am
nice shirt, nice skirt, terrible shoes…
October 21, 2012 at 11:12 am
Good ol’ Ms. Battaglia. This look is rife with androgynous elements and I really think that this is the key factor in what keeps Milanese women looking so elegantly refined (IMO of course).
This pic from 2009 is my all time fave: http://www.thesartorialist.com/photos/on-the-street-giovanna-nyc/
Great shooting as always Scott

Black and white does always look so chic and she adds a little twist with her funky shoes!
October 21, 2012 at 11:17 am
Lovely Milan! Why was I born in Sweden!?
October 21, 2012 at 11:28 am
Such a photographed woman, because she always looks amazing!
Love the simple style of the blouse and skirt. The shoes make her feet look quite large and boat-like don’t they? Perhaps if they were more of a wedge silhouette they’d compliment those gorgeous legs a bit better.
October 21, 2012 at 11:37 am
i love it when i see a piece of clothing i hate in a show/at a store – but then loves it on a person making it right –> aka those shoes
October 21, 2012 at 11:45 am
The shoes are PERFECT! The angular lines match the lines of the glasses, yet contrast with the scalloped hem and curves in the blouse. I love this whole outfit.
Style begins at forty
October 21, 2012 at 11:49 am
A real style icon!
October 21, 2012 at 11:52 am
The elegance of black and withe. The shoes are fab, rightly eccentric.

Aaaaaahhhh, my favourite, Giovanna.
That shirt is amazing. As are the skirt, shades, watch, clutch … wow.
I love the pattern of the shoe. The soles? Not so much. Perhaps the only time I didn’t love 100% everything she is wearing!
October 21, 2012 at 12:55 pm
Wow! Stunning! What a grate shot! And I love her style! Love how she paired classic pieces with this fun pair of shoes!
October 21, 2012 at 1:05 pm
her shoes are fabulous, they add a lovely touch of whimsy to her look.
October 21, 2012 at 1:44 pm

Who makes this shirt? It is absolutely fantastic!

I love her shirt! does anyone know who it is by?
October 22, 2012 at 11:45 am
the shirt is by azzedine alaia.
October 21, 2012 at 2:27 pm
Never wrong Giovanna ! She’s got style running in her veins !
October 21, 2012 at 2:44 pm
love the shirt and the mini! great match…xo, Alma
October 21, 2012 at 2:53 pm
I love the blouse and I get the look but not in love with the shoe.
October 21, 2012 at 3:03 pm
SERIOUSLY great shot. I love this.
October 21, 2012 at 3:13 pm
Gorgeous. She wears Alaia so well!
Funny but Giovanna is my style role model….funny only because I am a man.
I guess that is the difference between style and fashion. Style is personality and fashion specific to a trade?!?!
October 21, 2012 at 3:16 pm
Gorgeous! That is the most beautiful white blouse i have ever seen!
Love, Jamie Herzlinger

I love that shoes!! i want theeeem!!!!.
very simple look with a very nice detail!!
October 21, 2012 at 4:16 pm
Giovanna is absolutely fabulous! Wonderful outfit
October 21, 2012 at 4:41 pm
Very cool shoes !!
October 21, 2012 at 4:42 pm
Oh please, more pics of Giovanna. She’s so inspiring.
October 21, 2012 at 5:05 pm
So nice Camisal. It reminds me the first one done in the 80s with the beginning of Alaïa or Rei Kawakubo.
October 21, 2012 at 5:31 pm
I find it really interesting that her shoes really divide people- they either love ‘em or hate them!
Me? I love them.
October 21, 2012 at 6:50 pm
Love the shoes which would really make me taller considering that I am 6ft tall. The outfit would look really cute on a tall girl and hoping this is available for someone who wears a size 11.
October 21, 2012 at 7:10 pm
Perfect! Love the shoes, skirt, hair detail with the classic shirt and smooth brown legs. Great fun!
October 21, 2012 at 7:34 pm
Like it’s tailored – She looks stunning and that shirt could be no one else’s…
October 21, 2012 at 8:20 pm
She is so elegant; the shoes are fabulous and stop her outfit from being boring and a bit cloney.
October 21, 2012 at 9:14 pm
Her shoes will probably evoke either love or hate responses…they are meant to provoke a reaction. Personally, count me among the fans. I like the graphic pop they give to her outfit–a bit of whimsy with the more classic and serene side to her blouse and skirt. She looks stunning.
October 21, 2012 at 9:36 pm
love this photo!!!

Nice! I totally love the oversized blouse & her cute little bag.

I really LOVE her style with FENDI. xxx
October 22, 2012 at 5:43 am
Confidence abounds here in this photo. The shoes stuck out to me though. Big in Asia making its way over, feminine without pain of heels but loads of character. Where can I find the likes.

i dont like the shoes!!
October 22, 2012 at 7:35 am
Oh Giovanna – you make my day.
October 22, 2012 at 7:52 am
Great look! Black & white ensembles are a win win situation!!!! Also, I think that in this picture, the acessories are the “stars” – her sunglasses by Tom Ford, her Hermés Clutch, and her unique plattform sandals – all combined make the look edgy and effortless).
October 22, 2012 at 8:52 am
October 22, 2012 at 9:09 am
Love her shoes. Fun!
October 22, 2012 at 9:35 am
White top and black bottom seemed to have conquered the catwalks for the next Spring, Giovanna once again shows impeccable styling, especially with those playful sandals!
October 22, 2012 at 11:01 am
Does anyone know who makes the shoes???
October 22, 2012 at 11:50 am
Love this outfit! (The white shirt is exquisite.) But I loved panning down and arriving at her shoes. I had to laugh…but only because they made me so happy. Very fun!
October 22, 2012 at 12:32 pm
Perfect Style by Giovanna…
October 22, 2012 at 1:37 pm
I love that the cut and tailoring on something as simple as a white button-up shirt really elevates the style level. Even the double button at the collar is a great touch.
Not sure on the choice of shoes though…
October 22, 2012 at 3:07 pm
The ease of this outfit is what makes it so beautiful. No, it’s not shockingly original, but it’s beautiful in it’s own way.

October 22, 2012 at 3:22 pm
Giovanna is a goddess!! I think she’s the chicest woman in the world, and I am in love with those shoes. The whole outfit is so interesting in its proportions and play on the classic black and white theme.
October 22, 2012 at 4:06 pm
Amazing! Giovanna is so cool!
October 22, 2012 at 5:04 pm
Nothing is superfluous in this outfit!
October 23, 2012 at 2:24 am
Chemise forte intéressante !!!
October 23, 2012 at 9:58 am
Talk about almost purposely ruining something very chic and beautiful with those shoes. Thinking they may be more for shock value then style value because they are almost breathtakingly ugly. I agree fun shoes are 100% in order here, but those are NOT them.
October 23, 2012 at 10:01 am
She does not overlook one detail…endlessly fascinating!!
October 23, 2012 at 1:25 pm
I love black & white combinations.
Classic, basic and simply beautiful.
IS THIS IT? models review
October 23, 2012 at 1:51 pm
Not a super fan of the shoes actually…
October 23, 2012 at 3:56 pm
There is not one thing I don’t think is brilliant about this look. From the overtly simple shirt to the under sized Birkin. Subtly stunning. x
October 23, 2012 at 7:33 pm
DEATH to flatforms.
October 23, 2012 at 9:18 pm
the sandals, could they be Muccia’s one off fm a couple of years ago?Anyone?
the shot is awsome, autumn angle of the late aftnoon sun….
October 23, 2012 at 9:36 pm
I love everything she is wearing….
October 23, 2012 at 10:33 pm
That shirt / blouse is amazing. I want it for my girlfriend. Where did it come from?
October 24, 2012 at 5:31 am
Her black and white dress matches perfectly with her shark teeth shoes. Obviously it is a great shot.
October 24, 2012 at 8:17 am
i want these shoes!! where can i buy ?
October 25, 2012 at 3:18 pm
Looooove the shirt and the whole pose. However, from the ankle down the photo falls apart, veering from stylish and slick to cartoonish. The shoes are a joke, and not even a funny one.
October 29, 2012 at 1:02 am
Love the outfit, but I don’t like the shoes that much. But the shirt is absolutely perfect!
November 6, 2012 at 6:54 pm
The shoes are fun, but not flattering on her. They make her feet look enormous!
