    Honestly, I LOVE Giovanna!

    So mixing silver and gold jewelry is not a problem? Or it only works on the perfect Giovanna?

    To wake up every morning and be this tall, this glam and this skinny must be a wonderful feeling.

    Can you please post a picture of this woman where she looks bad? It’s simply unfair that she never seems to have a bad fashion day!

    The woman in the second photo looked "geyt" in grey the last time, in her D&G dress, I believe. She looks great again here. My only hesitation is that I don't see the brown snakeskin in the shoes relating directly to anything else, but they do provide a contrast to the simplicity of the other individual pieces. The little bag is perfect, the pants are beautiful and I like the man's watch.

    Both beautiful. The first sweater has a Poiret feel to it. Love the trousers and monochrome look in the second. Grey with gold (I think her pendant is gold?) is a nice, less-expected choice.

  22. Diana

    November 25, 2008 at 11:19 am

    The first jacket is a little bit big for my taste.
    Giovanna is a real style icon. a great inspiration.
    I think she was born with style. She is always up to the latest fashion, but always very simple and natural and elegant. For me, this is what fashion is all about.

    the second outfit with the skinny trousers, awesome belt and necklace is very lovely. However, the first outfit looks like she just rolled out of bed…it is a very bland and lazy look.

    its not fair to the other girl to put giovanna in the same post with her, giovanna just trumps most (not that it’s a competition.)

    she looks absolutely polished and chic, but also completely effortlessness. and the teeny tiny kelly is so good here.

    This looks a little ‘too long,’ but otherwise, it’s quite nice.

    Well… the medallion….. A gift from Mr. T?

    This is interesting, though. Looks like a lot of care was put into this, but the hair is so unfussy. Maybe that’s what keeps it grounded and semi-sensible.

    The woman in the first photo has such a beautiful smile… reminds me a little of the woman from Stockholm. I don’t think I could pull off the chunky knit, though.

    Ah Giovanna! She just can’t put a foot wrong when it comes to style. She looks good in just about everything she wears……. then again with that figure I guess you could MAKE anything look good :-)

    So jealous.

    November 25, 2008 at 10:56 pm

    I don’t like that big sweater at all. Everything about it is too big: the sleeves, the width, ugh. Her *smile* saves that picture though :)

    And oh how I love the second shot. The beautifully tailored pants. The ankle-height hem, and the perfect shoes. The oversize pendant. Elegant perfection.

    November 25, 2008 at 11:42 pm

    It’s funny… I love all of it except the little bag and the shoes. The shoes seem too *obvious* for lack of a better description. I think I’d like an interesting flat (she’s long and thing enough to carry it off a la Audrey Hepburn) or something a little chunkier with a closed toe. As for gold and silver… I’m sure sure I care, but then I’ll drink white wine with beef :)

    Ouch! Those waist height almost capri pants are not flattering. The tapered lower leg makes even the slimmest thighs look big by comparison. The whole look is just a bit too self-conscious. Everyone in the other photo looks stylish and relaxed – they’ve forgotten all about what they’re wearing.

    Am I really the only one who does not like the second look?
    The high pant and long necklace make her torso look about 2 inches long, the turtleneck gives her a bobble head, and the over all thing is just so PTA mom from the 90s done expensive. Awful.

    I’m more interested in the comment about mixing gold and silver. Hmmm….. I’ve never thought twice about it although from time to time I’ve heard someone, usually someone older (at least 60) or from the midwest or maybe from Orange County or Queens, mention it as a no-no. Kind of like making sure your bag and shoes or lipstick and nail polish “match”.

    If you really want to mix metals but are afraid you’re committing a fashion faux pas, why not buy a piece that has both silver and gold. Then you’ll have created a loop hole and you can go accessory wild!

    The great thing about style is that there are no hard/fast rules that apply to everyone all of the time.

    To the person that said it must be nice to be this tall, skinny yada yada. Granted her body is great but it’s actually the power of a great cut and fit of trouser. These pants rock because there high waisted which elongates any body, 2nd there straight stovepipe leg shows off the ankle which when worn with a highheel further lengthens the body giving a super slender appearance. This look is professional work appropriate without the boring wide leg cuffed pant that EVERY office women THINKS she should wear.

    yikes! on the first outfit. It just looks frumpy to me. The sweater is kind of granny-ish in a bad way, and I am just not a fan of those pants. She is a gorgeous woman, and I think that outfit overwhelms her.

    The second outfit is very chic and classic, but could use a little more spice.

    I couldn’t agree more with dyan, it’s the fantastic cut and fit (and subtle pattern) of those trousers (and of course the heels) that make her legs look like they go on for miles! Beautiful. And the gold in the necklace (and shoes?) against the silver-gray of the rest of the outfit is just right. If, say, the watch was gold it’d be too much, but it’s just right. Classic.

    A very good showing of a difference in style; the other one’s very lax and loose, and the second photo shows sharpness and more sophisticacion.

    But I adore both outfits ! I love how the first photo reminds me of the cardigans my granny knit for me. And the second one’s very reminiscent of the Sixty’s !

    both of these are the graytest! gorgeous ladies pulling their outfits off wonderfully.

    i was so excited to see these because I am wearing a giant knit sweater right now and champion them for their comfort, warmth, and proportioning magic.

    equally a favorite of mine are high waisted gray check trousers. most people who see me in either- giant sweater or trousers- don’t get it…but i am so glad these beautiful ladies do! gray is never boring when you do it right like they have…
