Oh so simple! I'm just waiting for her to throw the coat open to reveal some other fabulous piece underneath! Reminds me of a friend of mine with her big hair.

le gambe più belle di Milano, di sicuro! Francois Truffaut diceva: "le gambe delle donne sono come dei compassi che disegnano la circonferenza del mondo conferendole unità e armonia". Pensava sicuramente a Giovanna Battaglia.

And we are so back...in Italia..and here is many a sart fans fav...the always elegant "giovanna". I wonder, is she part of the legendary and esteemed "BATTAGLIA" Milanese men's store of bev. hills/rodeo drive?

Killa shoes(LV?), coat, stance, DNA.

Loving all the shows and scoop. Keep 'um coming!

Just recently discovered sartorialist, and WOW.. I lived in Japan for 4 years and have recently moved back to Australia. I have been looking for something to fill the void(style-wise),since leaving Japan, and of all places to discover (your book and subsequently this site) is at an art museum! So made my day! Thank you.

Without those shoes mmm??? But with them on she could be wearing anything and she'd still look good ;)

Gorgeous. Seriously is THIS big hair? Everyone is so used to flat hair. I love her hair. Long live natural looking hair! Think about it, how good would this really look with a bun or straight hair? Time to let your curls breathe girls...

 

Blogger juhi01_us said ... (11:06 AM) : 

P.S. I failed to mention your amazing photographic instinct. It makes me feel that I'm right there on location standing behind you while your taking the shot.

She effortlessly wears her high heel "decolettes"! I love the contrast between her shiny shoes and her free style hair. I guess that's the secret italian women have! Simple shaped hair! Almost no make-up! The coat she wears is an excellent chain between the shoes and the hair. She's once again the best representative of milanese elegance!

She's always 'right.'

 

Anonymous alabdin said ... (2:16 PM) : 

Love how her hair runs down her back in a natural and messy way. All this effortlessness in her hair and posture is balanced out with the geometric pattern of her coat and the decisive stilettos.

Feminine yet decisive!

I agree with the comments above, she is my favorite and does exude timeless elegance.

Believe it or not, the coat is Chanel Fall 2009. Doesn't look typical Chanel. The silhouette is more Dries/Marni.

Oh the joys of "what lies underneath". She is lovely in a simple but elegant coat revealing a stunning pair of legs contrasted nicely with black pumps. Just goes to show you that sexiness can be coy and not always "in your face".
