    I love that you’re always catching this lovely woman repeating her use of blush-colored accessories (these prada shoes & the chanel bag in previous photos) in different weather conditions. Gorgeous *and* sensible. What a beast.

    I don’t even care if the prada shoes are too hyped up, they are beautiful and definitely meant for this outfit!

    Chic. I like how she adds in the belt to tie in her very of the moment shoe

    The shoes were a bit odd with the white dress the first time…

    …but definitely don’t fit with this dress despite the “reach” with the belt.

    There’s a difference between forcing your fashion and being “fierce” with it, no?

    I like how often you photograph Giovanna, because we can see how she uses different pieces in different ensembles. The pink Chanel bowler, the shirtdress, those awesome Prada shoes she’s wearing here, etc. I love to see how someone with such a great sense of style puts things together!

    she lives in those shoes! does quite a nice job of transitioning them from summer to fall, I must say

    doesn’t work for me. liked her other outfits alot better. don’t like the matching color in shoes and belt. the dress is to summery for the rest of the outfit i think. Am i alone with this view?

    she looks fantastic. she looks like she threw this together easily, because her closet is probably stocked only with items like those she is wearing: timeless, well made, chic. very nice, indeed.

    Oh my. Probably one of the best looks I’ve ever seen. Period. The dress, the belt, the cardigan, the patterns, the colors, the rolled up sleeves, her dark skin, her mysterious, playful beauty, the way she doesn’t look all ‘done-up’ yet somehow she looks perfect….everything about her is so intriguing I could stare at this photo for ten minutes.

    Take two on the shoes. I like this version better. The messy hair an all the conscientious choices regarding accesories are an interesting contrast. I guess that Ms. Bataglia has a car near by to protect the shoes…

    These two-toned shoes are delightful. Her dress has a vintage-look. The shortish-jacket with the side buttons is a nice detail. Her structured handbag with the silver lock lends functional and stylish. I love that her hair style allows for some wispy strands to fly free … gorgeous stockings …

    For once I disagree with one of her choices! I like everything but the shoes in this outfit. The shoes were great with the white sheath; the pink and open toe do this ensemble no favours. Lovely dress and jacket though.

    the way her pradas correspond to the hermes bag and the belt makes a very strong european statement of fashion

    oh i love it from toe to head!
    the shoes, the stockings, the print, the belt, the sleeves, the lapel, the collar, the hair.

    it looks effortlessly pretty and put together

    The small, subtle hint of color in her shoes and belt really make this look stand out…absolutely perfect


    September 30, 2007 at 2:16 pm

    Ah, those Prada shoes. I don’t usually believe in buying the national ad item from any brand because the item is always just too identifiable, but those are very cool kicks, I must say. And the pop of color is really smart-looking.

    Ciao bella! Another wonderful photo of this abso-bloody-lutely stunning woman. Beautiful dress. I love her in black clothing, especially the tights and the short black jacket (cardigan?). We’ve seen these shoes before, and here they look great paired with the green belt. Well done. Looking at this beautiful, elegant, aristocratic young woman, I sense a need to start attending Mass again. Urgently.

    This woman never seems to have an “off” day. Loved the shoes before, still love them now! She’s inspired me to wear my own emerald-green shoes (not Prada but they’re lovely too).

    Wow, the more I look at the outfit, the more it makes sense -apart for the bag. It’s the biggest per-peeve of all times for me, but I just cannot stand it when people carry their bags *open* like that! It’a Hermès -treat it with a little respect! It looks sloppy this way.

    Giovanna is one of my all-time favorite subjects. Love the Prada shoes with the tights and an Hermes bag is always chic.

    I almost thought ‘ok, enough of your favourite subjects who’re so pretty and are/were in the business, they look good too easily’.
    But then I imagined those clothes on an ordinary mortal. Still look good. Possibly a change of jacket.
    And on ubiquitousness- anyone who’s creative, I can learn from- and if they’re repeatedly creative, I can learn repeatedly.

    I love her look; yes, even down to the shoes. I think they do go with the outfit. The shoes coordinate yet aren’t matchy matchy, which would be more safe, and I don’t believe Giovanna does safe.

    Black and white is chic in any season and I think the addition of the cardigan and the black tights “winterizes” the somewhat summery dress.

    I think she looks wonderful.

    I liked those shoes with bare legs, but with the tights, I’m in LOVE! They create such a get leg line (although Giovanna doesn’t even need it!) and they temper the color a bit…LOVE…

    i would love it if you continued to post more of this woman. she obviously has great style but there is a modesty to her that’s refreshing and inspiring. love the green accent of her belt and the way her pradas look with the tights.

    “what are the rules when is comes to hosiery and open toes”….?
    You assume there are authorities in the matter…only if you submit to such authority, giving up your authorship rights.
    It is FASHION…not drugs.
    You are allowed to express your self even when you are the only one setting the parameters.
    Why so afraid of not complying to the standards?
