Just one look at Giovanna Battaglia would make even the most fashion forward girl want to run home and change.
Working as the senior fashion editor for Vogue Japan and contributing fashion editor for W Magazine keeps Battaglia pretty busy, as she regularly styles editorials for both magazines. However, with friends like fashion goddess, Anna Dello Russo, who she worked with at L’Uomo Vogue, it’s not hard to see the motivation to always be on point. Known for her amazing since of style, Giovanna Battaglia can usually be found rocking only the latest designer fashions. Having been born and raised in Milan, Italy, Battaglia’s Italian roots are ever present in the playful way she styles her looks.
Last summer, Battaglia’s marriage to Oscar Engelbert was hailed as the most over the top wedding of that year. Over the course of a weekend , the celebration consisted of four events which included a welcome dinner, a the wedding ceremony, the party after the wedding, and one more party the night after all held in Capri, Italy. In the case of Battaglia, every occasion meant another showstopping outfit. Having worn dresses by designers like Thom Browne, Alexander McQueen and Valentino, the wardrobe nearly outshined the wedding.
It’s amazing to sit back and acknowledge the level of creativity Giovanna Battaglia showcases daily, however it is that creativity that keeps clients like Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, and Saks Fifth Avenue coming back to get her creative hand in their various campaigns. But that really is what all of this boils down to. Some people in the world are just naturally more creative than others and showcase them differently. Some people can paint murals or write songs. When talking about Giovanna Battaglia, her creativity is in her abilty to turn herself into walking art through her extravagant wardrobe.
