Style Crush

When I come across a photograph of Giovanna Battaglia on a fashion blog, I always say the exact same thing, I would wear that outfit in a second.

Now, being a Stylist and Fashion Director for Vogue Gioiello and Vogue Pelle, and sitting front row at Fashion week may give you a leg up when it comes to getting dressed in the morning, but Giovanna proves that looking stylish doesn't mean pulling looks directly from the runway. In fact, her style habits are more like a regular woman, than, say, some of the other fashion directors out there (no offense Anna Dello Russo, I love you, too!)

Oftentimes you see Giovanna wearing the same piece over and over again in different combinations, like these gorgeous snakeskin boots . . .

. . . or this candy-colored Fendi bag.

She often mixes vintage with modern— like these vintage Emporio Armani sunglasses.

And I LOVE how she pulls her hair back in a messy bun, just like any woman on the go.

The feeling I get when I see photos of Giovanna is not one of envy, or even wistfulness. Her style is amazingly wearable and accessible — even though the pieces in her wardrobe are high-end labels, any of her outfits would be easy to recreate with more affordable pieces.

I mean, I'm pretty sure I'm not the only woman out there who could go over to her closet right now, and pull together something pretty close to the above look.

And, like all the stylish women I admire, she has incredible shoes . . .

She is perfection. I have a feeling if I ever got the chance to step inside her closet, I would faint from the utter fabulousness. Sigh.

You've made a great assessment of her overall appeal. I feel the same way, she dresses in a way that is very accessible, playful, never too matchy matchy, and she recycles her favs in interesting ways.

Thanks for the fine breakdown. Maybe I'll go mix myself up a new outfit!
