I Am Fashion

I don't do fashion. I am fashion. - Coco Chanel

Giovanna Battaglia is fashion editor of L'Uomo Vogue, the Italian men's version of the magazine. She's a former Dolce & Gabanna model with legs for days and her style is off the charts. Forget Cinderella. I want to be Giovanna.

Beautifully sexy shoes. Those insane metallic pants.Those knee high (yet tough) boots. The piping on the skirt!What isn't perfect about the outfit above? The dress, the sweater, the belt, the gloves. Down to the loose half-ponytail. It's scorching in LA today, but she makes me want to bundle up and work on my layering technique.

This is more like it. How perfectly nineties. Click on the D&G ad for a close-up.

I envy her talent for mixing standout pieces so they create a totally fresh look. I need to wear my hair up more...

Discovered on The Sartorialist. He's a master.

Please don't wear your hair up more :( In my eyes, it adds 10 years to your gorgeous looks. But you'd look good in anything, even a burlap sack :) Just my opinion of course.

Have you seen Top Hat w/ Fred and Ginger? You'd love the sets, apartments, etc...

Speaking of fashion, absolutely loved the black shorts you were wearing during the "Knock-Knock Makeover" segment yesterday...don't think I've ever seen a "reporter" wear something like that, but I'm not complaining in the least! :)

Seriously, girl...YOU are fashion!

Hahaha anon! It's all about the setting. I wore them especially for my Knock Knock segment & it was 100 degrees! (But yeah, I guess I like short shorts.)
