To say that Giovanna Battaglia is a style icon is just a gross understatement. Sure, she has style that is most enviable; and a lifestyle, that through pictures on Instagram and just about every online site that caters to fashion and the likes thereof, is everything. She also has a resume that cannot be rivaled; having held and currently holds some of the most coveted positions in the fashion industry, she is definitely a woman to watch. The Italian-born fashion editor, stylist and creative director living in New York City, was deemed a "cyber icon" and "fashion heroine" by The New York Times. Click here to read more.
I've included a few of my favorite pictures of outfits worn by Ms. Battaglia. No one wears a shift like she does and she always looks polished with an effortless appeal. That is the beauty of the shift! No, we may not have her slim figure, however a well-fitted shift makes what we do have look beautiful.
When I saw this picture of her wedding gown by Valentino for the civil ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden; I could not take my eyes from the page. She is perfection. The dress is perfection...and I expected nothing less. Her wedding, a few months back, was touted as an Over-The-Top-Glamorous Capri Wedding by Vogue's Hamish Bowles; and from the looks of the pictures, I imagine so! Click here to read more.
Her outfits run the gamut of what's new and current in fashion. However, let's be clear, although she may be seen in some of the "on trend" pieces, because of her sense of style, she could never be "trendy." This is why knowing who you are and what looks great on you, along with proper tailoring, is key when being adventurous with of the moment pieces. Of course, I've never been inside of her closet; only something I can dreamily imagine, but I am more than positive it is filled with classic everything.
Make it AMAZING!
