W contributing fashion editor Giovanna Battaglia says she had to work three times as hard as other stylists when she was starting out, because no one takes a model seriously. "I had this tag on me that I was a model, so I had to prove [myself] much more than the other ones," she says. "The pretty girl is also good!" This video shows her rummaging through piles of fancy clothes and trying on accessories, including an ornate hat with stuffed birds attached to it (spoiler: one of the birds doesn't make it). Also, she got her first big break with Italian Vogue after meeting Anna Dello Russo in a club — hopefully while wearing a Dolce & Gabbana plastic corset.
