Giovanna Battaglia At Fendi Party

It is impossible to keep up with Giovanna Battaglia's stylish social life, she leaps from one glamourous event to another so elegantly! Special thanks to Francesca Berti for her wonderful news reports on the Milan scene to help us keep tabs on Gio in both Italian and English, grazie bella!

Dopo un'altra giornata di sfilate si è tenuto un altro evento, tra i più glamour della settimana milanese, dedicato al lancio della prima compilation Fendi O' e della nuova fragranza Fan di Fendi. Questa volta il mondo della moda si è dato appuntamento ai Magazzini Generali di Porta Genova, colorati per l'occasione da graffiti gialli e abbelliti da un profumo formato gigante che accoglieva gli ospiti al suo ingresso. Il party della Maison romana è stato accompagnato da un sound techno underground, mixato per l'occasione da Andy Fletcher, tastierista del noto gruppo di musica pop elettronica Depeche Mode. Gli ospiti hanno ballato fino a tarda notte immersi in un'atmosfera di luci e laser.

Giovanna Battaglia: amfAR Gala

Many more thanks are due to our effervescent and dedicated contributing editor, Francesca Berti, for her article in both Italian and English on another recent charity event that Giovanna Battaglia attended, the amfAR Gala, which also occurred as part of Milan Fashion Week. I love that Giovanna is both stylish and charitable, she is such an inspiration. Grazie tante Francesca!

Il mondo della moda incontra quello della solidarietà! Come ben sapete ogni settimana della moda che si rispetti ha le sue sfilate, le sue presentazioni, i suoi ritardi, i suoi cocktail, le sue feste ma soprattutto le cene di Gala e party esclusivi. Fashion week non significa solo 7 giorni intensi di sole sfilate, ma racchiude in se anche moltissimi eventi mondani socialmente utili.  Uno fra questi è sicuramente l'AmfAR, l'evento organizzato il 23 Settembre in collaborazione con il settimanale d'attualità Vanity Fair. Un evento, o meglio una serata di Gala, che si ripete tutti gli anni e che vede come protagonisti tanti volti noti di fama internazionale. Quest'anno l’evento benefico si è svolto a Palazzo Permanente di Milano ed ha visto un red carpet ricco ed esclusivo: Bar Rafaeli, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan, il duo DSquared (Dean e Dan Caten), Roberto Cavalli e l'elegantissima Giovanna Battaglia. Durante la serata è stata raccolta l’importante cifra di 1,5 milioni di Euro a sostegno della ricerca per l'AIDS .

The word of fashion meets the one of solidarity! As you know, every respectable fashion week has its fashion shows, its presentations, its delays, its cocktails, its parties but especially the gala dinners and exclusive parties. Fashion week is not just seven intensive days of only catwalks, but includes social events that are also useful. One of these is certainly amfAR, the event organized on the 23 September in collaboration with the weekly journal Vanity Fair. An event, or rather a gala evening, which is repeated every year and sees many famous faces of international fame. This year's charitable event was held at Palazzo Permanente in Milan and has seen a rich and exclusive red carpet: Bar Rafaeli, Heidi Klum, Lindsay Lohan, the duo DSquared (Dean and Dan Caten), Roberto Cavalli, and the elegant Giovanna Battaglia. During the evening the important amount of 1.5 million Euros was raised to support research for AIDS.

Lula As Giovanna Battaglia In W

As part of her "Gio's Journal" feature in the September issue of W, Giovanna Battaglia mentioned my delightfully talented friend Lula among her inspirations. She looks especially gorgeous here dressed as Giovanna. Lula certainly keeps busy — as Gio mentions, she is publishing her first magazine this month and I cannot wait to see it. Visit Lula at The Subject I Know Best to see more of her fabulous style.
