I adore how she incorporates trends accessibly; its chic, timeless as approachable in a sense that crowds could moniter, accept and reconfigure for oneself- its practical. But nevetheless inspirational.
I’m sure this will be an unpopular opinion, and not to say that Giovanna B doesn’t have great style and legs, but I feel she is a bit too mature to wear styles that are more young-girlish as the first photo and rather short in the second photo, especially when you aren’t wearing tights at least.
Ok, there I said it.
No doubt she is a beautiful woman with a goddess figure and great sense of fashion, but I always thought it was not that hard for a lady in her position to dress nicely, with her profession she surrounded by beautiful, luxurious fashion items and probably most of them are free, so I would appreciate more for those normal street girls, under the limited resource they exercise their amazing creativity to mix/match something maybe find from second-hand stores or even DIY to create their own unique and personal style.
LOVE that the mini is back! It’s time to show some legs ladies! Love the first pic – classic and elegant and mini. The second is fun and casual, especially paired with flats. But I’m a bit worried about her texting in the middle of an intersection. :)
Thanks for sharing – as always – you’re incredible!
I just go stupid-senseless in AWE over Giovanna. When I first spotted her (April 09, I think) was when I discovered The Sartorialist. My life changed forever. I tried to Google her without knowing her last name and didn’t have much luck. Then I found a used magazine at Starbucks with an article on “women in the fashion industry”. I turned to it and THERE SHE WAS …. Giovanna Battaglia! Like a crazed weirdo, I went home and surfed the ‘net for hours, slobbering over her style.
Thank you for introducing her to me. She inspires me.
I’d like to assure you and your readers I am mentally quite stable.
How did she get my grandfather’s slippers??? :) I love Giovanna’s style, and the clothes are beautiful, but my honest opinion is that it’s crazy to have/borrow/receive, etc., so many clothes. It’s just unbelievable, really, when you think of the dollar value of garments and accessories that have been draped over that body. I would be more excited to see her wearing a lot of the same clothes over and over again, but in different ways. Sounds weird and doesn’t really fit with the whole point of “moda,” I know :), but I’m just so tired of consumption. It would be great to see someone like her put her obvious eye to work in using many many fewer pieces.
