Giovanna Battaglia, an ex-model and currently fashion editor at L’UOMO Vogue, is my new style crush. In fact, I’ve liked her ever since Vogue featured her for the 20’s segment of one of their age issues many years back. I remember she told this story about how she only wears really short skirts and how she once had a Dolce & Gabbana mini skirt that came with matching gold panties. All her boyfriends hated it. “So many fights with so many boyfriends” she sighed. Her style has matured ever since and she has imposed herself as a one of the most inspirational style figures of her generation.
Each of Giovanna’s appearances at the fashion shows is a lesson in class, and is witness to her passion without restraint for fashion. I think she has an underlying understated elegance and innovation in her looks. She always mixes it up and is never afraid to put on pieces that are quite over the top, be it yellow pants or a fur coat. Elegance seems to tie all her outfits together. I envy her ability to look so chic all the time. She stands out among a sea of black, but not in a staged, flamboyant “look at me!” way. She always looks relaxed. Her style is the epitome of effortlessness, yet impeccable.
