Name: Giovanna Battaglia
Occupation: former model of D&G -exclusively- and now fashion editor at L'Uomo Vogue and freelance stylist
Her World: High fashion, Styling, High credit limit
Her days as Dolce & Gabbana's house model and her work as a stylist have given Giovanna a wardrobe that would be the envy of any fashion editor, but she's not afraid to be photographed in a favorite piece multiple times. She has a knack for switching her shoes and jacket to create a completely different effect using the same dress or trousers or turtleneck, while always managing to look chic and comfortable in her clothes. Giovanna certainly can't be said to have a "uniform," as many fashion professionals do, but there are certain constants to her style. She wears lots of grey and black, and keeps jewelry simple and hair and makeup minimal. Whether in skirts, dresses or trousers, Giovanna always wears a killer heel, and her black Birkin is a constant. She favors labels often thought to be unsexy, like Marni and Prada, but always manages to look far from frumpy without veering into trashy, despite her penchant for short skirts (and who wouldn't, with those legs?).
THE FINAL INSIGHT
From her past experience, Giovanna quickly understood the fashion industry, and she manages to apply in a very natural way both in her work over L'Uomo Vogue, and in her public life.
Her chic simplicity is to be translated into a deep understanding of fashion.
