Fashion and Franks Fave Fashionistas - Giovanna Battaglia

I have decided to dedicate a weekly post to my fave fashionista's - now you might think that Frankie is prob not all that interested in fave fashionista's but believe you me Frankie loves a lady!  And Frankie  has a fashion eye - who would have thought it - a big dufus like him - but he loves a well turned out young lady - he has been known to cross the road for a well turned out young lady - i sometimes wonder where he learnt that .. Mr Fashion and Frank ?? ...

First fave fashionista - you guessed it - her of the uber-accessory - the inimitable Giovanna Battaglia, future daughter-in-law to Carinne, girlfriend of Vladimir, formerly Vogue, currently W, uber stylist, editrix, and true lover of fashion.  My personal top favourite xx



For me the tights are definitely adding,  balancing the clutch and pattern


Its all in the shoe and that coat?? 


An easy one for all of us to learn from 


Oh it is all in the tights - this lady knows her tights - definitely inspirational


I am feeling the midi with a knee boot this fall


Actually here i like them both - so a little bonus fashionista for you!

  2. I love her too for her unique style- she always mixes things up, one day lady like, the next a bit rock and roll - of course with that figure she could look good in anything.

  4. She has SUCH great style. I absolutely swooned over those leopard stockings and shoes when Sart first published that picture.

  5. Such a great idea for the post! I adore Giovanna very much. And your boy is so adorable - mine is very much into ladies, too. I think it's because he spent his early days with his mummy (me), so he naturally prefers women to men. :) I think our babies would have plenty to discuss if they ever met - how to meet the right lady, how to be careful with her shoes etc etc etc. :)

  8. She really has got some insane style. I had not yet seen the second picture and I absolutely adore her coat (the definition in my book of insanely cool fashion!). I could have guessed she would be the first on your list ;) But now you've got me wondering about the rest!

    aaand you and LittleRus are too funny hehe. I'm glad that my little girl hasn't reached puppy-puberty just yet!

  10. Giovanna Battaglia has such great style, love how she accesorieses (is that right?) in other word, how she uses accesories to make an outfit so different, so special! My favorite look, the one with the midi skirt and the ankle boots!

  18. That tassel coat is insane.... and I was super inspired this morning by the leopard on leopard (tights and shoes) look.. I immediately implemented the idea while styling my mannequins for the window!
