Again perfect model..Very very nice and beautiful handbag...Super super


Blogger Francesca Robertson said ... (11:22 AM) : 

WOW- that outfit is amazing. My mom used to have a necklace just like hers that I would steal all of the time. She looks timeless, from the neck down it looks like something Jud Garland would have worn back in the day...and I love Judy Garland.

giovanna is just eternally stylish. it isn't fair...

there's a style that's so quintessentially hers too - unmistakable! and oh so beautiful


Blogger FASHION SNAG said ... (11:24 AM) : 

she has such long legs. love the skirt.


Blogger The Spicers said ... (11:25 AM) : 

It seems like a combination that wouldn't work: loose volume on both the top and the bottom, but she looks absolutely gorgeous.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:27 AM) :

I love the way she sits on a bike wearing stilettos, and that skirt is just great!

les jambes !! juste waou


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:52 AM) : 

She is gorgeous and can do no wrong.

ON A SIDE NOTE, I always think of your photos as having a timeless element to them. So, naturally, when I looked at this photo, I said to myself, a true classic, eternal. But then I stopped to think, what will future generations think of us, when they see these photos of people always looking at their phones? What would past generations think? Isn't that weird? Are we missing out on life?


Blogger Nature Graffiti said ... (11:53 AM) : 

She is incredibly gorgeous, and effortlessly chic...
I love it!



Blogger said ... (11:57 AM) : 

I love, love, love the way she looks and everything about this photo with only one little exception: the way her feet look at each other.


Blogger C. said ... (12:00 PM) : 

Giovanna is always so perfectly dressed...with style and chic...all about subtle elegance

An angel...with amazing legs.


Blogger green lantern said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Is that her scooter? A pic, in that outfit, on that scooter, in the wind would have been smashing!! She is cute as a button.


Blogger Shannon said ... (1:15 PM) : 

She looks absolutely perfect.. Wow, can't find a flaw in this photo.


Blogger Emily said ... (1:26 PM) : 

I wonder is she ever gets bored with never having a poorly-dressed day.

She's stunning.


Blogger Burning Nymph said ... (1:52 PM) : 

I love that her feet are turned in at the ankles, like a little girl...vulnerable somehow...


Anonymous Ray said ... (1:54 PM) : 

I love her! So enviously stylish. Always.

Beautiful Legs!


Blogger SabinePsynopsis said ... (2:17 PM) : 

I hate to swoon, but she is just beautiful and has great style. When in Italy I'm normally slightly bored by the rather conventional fashion sense and style of Italian women - but not her!!


Blogger Hanna Persson said ... (2:32 PM) : 

she's such a classic beauty!


Blogger tizzylish said ... (2:37 PM) : 

I love her...........and the strike of red blast just perfects the ensemble.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:51 PM) : 

She is bone crushing heart wrenching gorgeous! Legs any woman (or man for that matter) would maim and kill for.


Blogger Joy Mars said ... (3:00 PM) : 

If I didn't know this woman was a fashion editor and an ex-model, I'd still say the outfit is too fashionista for its own good.

Nothing actually matches. Is this supposed to make it look authentically personal? It doesn't to me. It just comes off as self-conscious, and not in a good way.


Blogger JMitchell said ... (3:05 PM) : 

everything about this is perfect. this is my new desktop photo. inspiring.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 PM) : 

I disagree with Joy Mars. She looks like she cares, yes, but if you are reading a blog like this one, don't you? Also, I love the pop of red with the gray, the way her toes are pointed in for the shot, the loose waves in her hair. She looks a bit concerned, however... a smile could do her wonders. Great top. And I'll be extra happy if those shoes are flats and not heels.



Blogger Catherine said ... (3:24 PM) : 

You need to do a book of all Giovanna. I never tire of seeing how she wears her clothes— everything is pulled together so flawlessly! That red clutch is just the right amount of pop. Can anyone id it?


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:43 PM) : 

I vote for Giovanna as THE SARTORIALIST ICON. At least for now...It's true, someday this will look dated.


Blogger Tina A. said ... (3:47 PM) : 

Love Giovanna!!!


Blogger Karen said ... (3:58 PM) : 

striking photo of giovanna! i think she looks so natural and beautiful here.


Anonymous Emilie said ... (4:05 PM) : 

I love when people (women in particular) pick a personal silhouette and go with it. Right now, it seems she is set on the short full skirt. Although we have seen her in it twice in that recently, the looks were so different. I think it takes a good eye to create two very different looks with similar silhouettes. Variations on a theme...

Gaaaah I'm rambling, what I mean to say is I love it!

Blogger A Perfect Peach said ... (6:17 PM) : 

Amazingly gorgeous. Sometimes I ask myself, "why do I live in Portland?". It would be so hard to get away with this outfit here without getting crazy stares from all the outdoorsy folk. Seriously, seriously lovely outfit!


Anonymous emilija said ... (6:26 PM) : 

the clutch!
...and the skirt!
ohmy, love it!!


Anonymous lady d said ... (6:27 PM) : 

great legs. she should wear minis all the time.


Blogger CW said ... (6:43 PM) : 

Great clothes, but a photo of the lady walking would better catch the flounce of the skirt.

This woman can do no wrong. I'm sartorially inspired by every picture I see of her.

I love her skirt, I've been looking for the perfect skirt and here it is, right on her. D;
If i saw that in a shop, i think it'd be one of those "i have to have that no matter what" kind of moments.

She has great legs too. And the bag complements the outfit well, as does the necklace. Very well put together and sophisticated.

the skirt reminds me of wrapping on a present. Gorgeous legs!

Yes. Always so beautiful. I love her spirit.

Scott, I hope you'll also have a new photo of the older woman with the long gray hair and bohemian look that you've shot many times before in Milan. I seem to remember she's a well-known Italian journalist, but I can't recall her name! I lover her, too.

a whole book on giovanna...i agree! personally, i think it's the pigeon-toed thing that makes this look. well, maybe the elegant knee caps don't hurt...;-)

(10:33 AM) : the random tie-ins of color that really make this such a gorgeous shot...the greys/blues in her chic outfit against the greenish backdrop - the splash of red in the clutch purse and the motorcycle safety reflector panels....the delicate heels against the pebbled street. Excellent work Sart!
