    Marvelous tights, but the shoes are obviously not made for walking.

    I love her hair.

    Those shoes and tights really shouldn't go together but its a stroke of genius as it looks amazing. Would love to see what she was wearing under the coat.

    What elegance! I really like the combination of bracelets to add a bit of color to the otherwise monochromatic look, excluding the wonderful bag of course.

    Okay, I would ABSOLUTELY break my "only one item of leopard print at a time" rule if I could do it with this much panache and elegance!

    Maybe I'll try it…. :)

    That's the best pic of Giovanna you've had on the blog so far. She usually wear stuff that cuts her shape up. Here her tall lankiness shows and it really looks chic.

    Her hairline which usually seems unattractively low looks perfect here. She should keep that style.

    The shoes and tights are awesome.

    Wearing red with camel reminds me of a chance meeting I had with Ru Paul one day when he was in his male persona. He was wearing a camel colored suit with soft red loafers. Fabulous!

    Wow! Nearly any kind of stocking and shoe would go well with that coat, but the leopard-on-leopard is so gutsy. I wonder where the coat is from? And the bag, natch

    I love all the shots of Milan, especially around Viale Piave. She must have been headed to a Dolce show with that gold invite in hand. I love the shot of Giovanna, but the camera doesn't always capture how much more stunning she is in person.

    Leopard with camel work great but please avoid both the shoes and tights in leopard as it actually undermines the beauty of the shoes.
    I love leopard print! However, it so difficult to wear it properly and it's one of those accessories, which everyone should be very careful with what they combine with.

    Btw, the shoes and the tights with that bag colour are just a big mistake to be put together in one outfit!
    I usually adore her style but this just not at all how I have personified Giovanna.
    In my opinion, this is more being fashionable without keeping the personal style!

    ok, leopard on leopard. I get it. let's move on. there's more in the pic than animal print.

    Two things I like and two I dislike are the following:

    I like her bag and her watch.
    I dislike, the rastafarian-like bracelets and her hairstyle.

    She's obviously going for a sophisticated look; her hair and bracelets detract from the presentation.

    eh…not so much. it really doesn't go well together. however, the cut and pleats of the coat are elegant–drastically undershadowed by the cheetah on cheetah.

    I usually adore Giovanna for simply being the inimitable Giovanna, with her amazing style as a secondary feature. This time though I recoiled. Am I the only one who hates the camel trend that seems ubiquitous on this site right now? Ugh! I hated it when it was big around 99, and even moreso now. And animal-print tights on such skinny legs just seem awkward – I can't help imagining that her legs are actually those of animals. From the neck up, though, amazing as always.

    Purr-rr-r! This woman never disappoints! Love the catty tights and shoes which add the only pattern I see, while the coat fits so beautifully and the bag adds it's color note without being oversized or overwhelming. Her look is one of confidence in herself – and it's not misplaced!

    I simply adore the subtle grace Giovanna exudes in this photograph. The classic tea-length cashmere camel coat coupled with the bold print tight, delicate printed shoes and bold red bag. This photograph captures the very essence of style enhancing the grace of the woman, the grace of Giovanna.

    Oh, goodness, it's been awhile since I've seen a picture of her. I will never wear shoes like that but I'm delighted she is. The legs such a contrast to that little conservative coat. So Italian.

    She's the very best. An inspiration. I have a file of your pictures of her.

    This outfit is D.E.V.I.N.E! Beautiful, but sturdy bag. check. Timeless & elegant coat, check. Totally inappropriate sunnies for this time of year, but who cares 'caus they're utterly fabby, check…and completely groovy leopard print shoes AND tights…way 2 go girl!!! Check. Check. Check.

    My only question is this:
    Is there ever a time when you decide it is best NOT to take her photo? I don't assume Giovanna owns a sweatsuit, but you must have seen her looking daggy or not quite so pulled together at least once, Scott?

    Holy cr** she is elegant!!! This outfit is the definition of how to make animal prints non-raunchy. And how to make an outfit that could easily become conservative and boring, interesting and fun!

    On another note, I am SOOO glad that lower heels are soon back – how can she walk two steps on those heels?

    Just a great of example of personal style. The leopard on leopard looks spectacular with her sort of relaxed body language. Sprezzatura at its finest. Very few people could pull this off and I fear for those who are about to try!
