This month’s Style Spotlight falls on Giovanna Battaglia.
The Italian born former Dolce & Gabanna model, is the fashion editor of L’Uomo Vogue and also works as a freelance stylist.
During Fashion Week she’s one of those effortless stylish women sitting in the front row.
What I also love about her is that she’s not just a clothes horse. She had plenty of character and mounds of personality.
Giovanna’s style is elegant and classic, but she does do edgy from time to time.
She’s not afraid to repeat a look like Anna and Victoria Beckham.
But like VB, I much prefer Giovanna’s street style to her red carpet style.
Giovanna Battaglia arrived at this event with boyfriend Vladmir Restoin-Roitfeld.
Her Louis Vuitton Fall 2009 blue and pink dress looked stylish without looking comical. In fact she looks way better than the runway.
She teamed her mini dress with a pair of LV Fall 2009 lace up boots with a pink trim and a pink clutch from the same collection.
Her other recent red carpet looks I haven’t enjoyed as much, because of the high-necklines and the harshness of the Gucci look.
Her Valentino gown was exquisite though.
These are some of my favourite street style looks from Giovanna. They are so prim and lady-like with Miu Miu, Marc Jacobs and Prada accessories bringing everything together.
I ache for her Maison Martin Margiela wedge boots.
When temperatures start to drop Giovanna still looks hot.
She goes from a Valentino ruffled neckline coat with pattern tights, to a bold red wool coat with YSL heels, to a tan leather coat with Roberto Cavalli boots, to a snug fur trimmed coat paired with Louis Vuitton boots.
Stylish, classic, quirky and cute.
She appears to love animal print.
So much so that she’s not afraid to wear print on print along with bright coloured accessories.
She’s not afraid to mix her metals either, wearing a silver ring with gold accessories including a Eddie Bargo pave con bracelet.
