She is one of the best examples of Italian style. Giovanna Battaglia is a woman that besides being beautiful, has a truly inspiring sense of style.

Giovanna grew up in Milan and at the age of sixteen she became a model. Her first job was for Dolce &Gabbana. She then gradually realised that she wanted to be a stylist -and she really got into it. Anna Dello Russo was the person that offered her a position in L’ Uomo Vogue. Up till now, she has worked for various Vogue editions and today she is the editor of L’ Uomo Vogue, Vogue Gioiello and Vogue Pelle, a freelance stylist and a contributing fashion editor in W Magazine.

Battaglia’s style could be described as classy, elegant and refined. That doesn’t mean, though, that her outfits are plain. Quite the opposite; she always adds eccentric and visually interesting elements to her looks. Chunky jewels, imposing headpieces and glamorous shoes, mark the way she is dressed. She also has a passion for extravagant coats.”Glamour, fun and elegance!” These are Giovanna’s fashion tips.

Battaglia combines looks, brains and style. A real inspiration for all the fashion lovers!
