I love her coat!


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:32 AM) : 

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.

GOrgeous, although she is slightly hunched she manages to exude feminity but a bit of hardness.

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.

She's got to be one of the loveliest women around

Simple, perfect, timeless as always -- Giovanna always reminds me of a young, Sophia Lauren. Love her heels!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (4:39 AM) : 

And we are so 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!

Blogger Peach City Style said ... (9:51 AM) : 

My favorite part of this photo is the shape of the heel of her shoes. ;)


Blogger indubitably said ... (10:17 AM) : 

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 ;)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:24 AM) : 

She's amazing, but what's really amazing is the empty parking space in Milan!LOL

I love her out fit and hair. It's perfect.



Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:05 AM) : 

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 indubitably 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.


Blogger Amanda-2NDASSEMBLY said ... (11:15 AM) : 

I love that coat and her untamed hair, she has a real sense of style


Blogger Melissa Blake said ... (11:18 AM) : 

The perfect outfit! :)


Anonymous Nate said ... (11:26 AM) : 

Giovanna has such a wonderful, contrasting repertoire of styles.


Blogger Unknown said ... (11:45 AM) : 

The messy hair and the patterned coat just do it for me.

To me this picture is the perfect explanation of the difference between fashion and style.

Love the jacket!

Gorgeous, simple, simply gorgeous.


Anonymous  said ... (12:28 PM) : 

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!


Blogger Juliet said ... (12:43 PM) : 

Oh Giovanna, we missed her! She is simply perfect

Louis Vuitton Shoes, I don't think they've been released in NA yet...


Anonymous CK Dexter Haven said ... (2:12 PM) : 

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.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (2:33 PM) : 

More Giovanna! It's good to see her here again!

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

I would totally buy a coffee table book that just contained photographs of her wardrobe.

Have you shot early in the morning?
She looks like a very satisfied kitten :-)))
And I also wonder, what she wears under the coat. I suppose, only underwear;-)
Do I have a very dirty fantasy?

I absolutely love this coat - the contrast of the stark sharpness of the graphic print with her soft and free-flowing curly hair is stunning. Such innate style!

coat + shoe + nonchalance = wow!!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (1:14 PM) : 

Wow! She is effortless, which takes... a lot of effort. The coat, the shoes, no nylons, I can just see a hint of pink at the left wrist, so maybe that is what she's wearing underneath. Those shoes are towers!

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".
