My love of colors is apparent in my SSA + SCA posts, and SSA #2 - Jude - is wearing his signature multi-colored hat...which reminded me of Giovanna Battaglia wearing House of Holland in Miami Beach: an absolute vision. Gio is a superstar stylist, W editor, and Italian beauty. The first time we met was in Italy and I instantly fell in love with her direct approach and laughter. These days as both of us are living in the US, i get to see her more, well sort of as she is always on a plane. To be clear also, she is not single but dating the wonderful, handsome, and charming Vlad...but i couldn't resist her in this colorful dress.
I remember when we were both going to Miami a couple of years ago from Paris and Milan respectively, I walked into the Air France Lounge (not knowing she was traveling there also) and saw her, both of us still hungover, but for some act of god, which i still have to figure out, she looked perfect to the "T", not a hair out of place. I, on the other hand, was lucky enough to not lose my passport + carry-on. So here's to the perfectly dressed Italian woman, whom i still believe made a deal with the devil to look 'oh so chic'. Bravissima!!
