See Giovanna Battaglia’s Masterful Italian Style


Giovanna Battaglia may be a street-style regular, but there's something that sets her apart from the troves of peacocks with their Moschino iPhone cases: She always styles her look in a totally unique way — pairing, for example, a floral skirt suit with a pair of black Keds. In many ways, she's the modern embodiment of Italian glamour: She wears a Prada dress sexily off one shoulder like Sophia Loren, rocks cat-eye sunglasses that would put Peggy Guggenheim to shame, and poses for photographers with the same confidence as the woman in Ruth Orkin's famous 1951 photo American Girl in Italy. The W contributing editor is also known for her strong commitment to Dolce & Gabbana, most notably wearing their dresses at the Met Gala year after year. As we gear up for street-style pictures to filter in from Milan, click through our slideshow to see Battaglia's best looks.
