It’s that time of year again. Paris Fashion Week! For fashion spectators like myself, the best thing to do this week is to sit back, relax and enjoy the show…the show on the street that is. Normally, on any given day in Paris you see the most fashionable, most stylish, most chic people in the world. That’s just par for the course in Paris. But, during fashion week in Paris, the fashion barometer goes to a whole new level. My favorite thing to do during this crazy week is to sit at a café (Le Nemours or La Palette) or take a walk through the Tuileries garden and just watch the street fashion show. This is where the fashionistas are...The editors, the stylists, the fashion bloggers, the diehard fashion show attendees.
Every season, I am always impressed by one woman in particular. Giovanna Battaglia. Former model for Dolce & Gabbana, she made a successful transition to editor (L’Uomo Vogue), freelance stylist and contributing fashion editor to W magazine. She doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk. She is the epitome of style. What I love about her fashion story is that she always looks like a lady, she always looks unique, sophisticated and timeless. Take a look…
Isn’t she lovely?
*Something you don’t know about me? My wardrobe basically consists of the following… Jeans, cashmere sweaters, jackets, scarves, sneakers, flats and hats. Colors? Blue, black, grey, orange, camel, leopard. Nail polish? Beige, grey, ox blood red. Perfume? Don’t even get me started on perfumes (obsessed) but for day-to-day, I combine Le Labo Rose with L’ Artisan Parfumeur Patchouli. My look at home? Pajamas, monogrammed cashmere socks, Serge Lutens Koublai Khan perfume and jewelry. I can get away with this because I have ALS. Don’t be jealous. What’s your look?
