    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.

      I agree,
      she always looks so sophisticated but with a twist – these shoes are proof of that!

      I really agree with you, the shoes are so unflattering.

    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.

    Love her and her style, I’m not sure about the shoes though…

    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.

    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

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

    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:

    Great shooting as always Scott

    Black and white does always look so chic and she adds a little twist with her funky shoes!

    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.

    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

  30. Paula

    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.

    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!

    Wow! Stunning! What a grate shot! And I love her style! Love how she paired classic pieces with this fun pair of shoes!

    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?!?!

    Love her!

    I find it really interesting that her shoes really divide people- they either love ‘em or hate them!
    Me? I love them.

  62. Anita

    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.

  63. cwoodyard

    October 21, 2012 at 7:10 pm

    Perfect! Love the shoes, skirt, hair detail with the classic shirt and smooth brown legs. Great fun!

    Like it’s tailored – She looks stunning and that shirt could be no one else’s…

  65. berenger

    She is so elegant; the shoes are fabulous and stop her outfit from being boring and a bit cloney.

  66. Ann-Marie

    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.

    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.

    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 HermĂ©s Clutch, and her unique plattform sandals – all combined make the look edgy and effortless).

    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!

    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…

  88. Andria R

    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.

    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.

    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.
