Even though these shots were posted on my instagram and even made an appearance on the cover of the site a couple of weeks ago, my team and I realized that we had not posted them here and for that we apologize. They are too good to have missed!

Giovanna is of course one of the best known stylists in the world and currently is acting as a W magazine contributing fashion editor and as the Senior Fashion Editor Life, for Vogue Japan. I don't think she can walk down a street without being photographed. More then all of that though - she is truly a genuine and wonderful person inside and out. There is no Diva antics here - she truly loves fashion and vintage and lives her life fully and with joy. I can't think of a better person for these two important and stunning vintage couture gowns to have gone to. As she whirled around Italy and Europe this summer she captured several shots for us wearing the gowns I found for her. The fashion world was obsessed and she even had illustrations done of her in both (see below).

I love it when someone who has all the clothes at the world at their fingertips chooses vintage! Brava Gio
