KNOW YOUR GIO_GRAPHY
Known for her playfully elegant approach to dressing and to life, fashion editor and style icon Giovanna Battaglia Engelbert has just launched her new book.
Who has been the single most inspirational person on your style and your life?
I don’t have just one person. I’ve been inspired by so many women from Cleopatra to Audrey Hepburn.
What is your favourite fashion quote?
If it’s my own it’s this: “Being cool is a bore, being fun is GLAMORE.” Otherwise it’s the Oscar Wilde quote “You can never be overdressed or over educated.”
Can you sum up what Italian women and style is about?
If I were to sum up Italian women and their style I would say they are effortless, yet bold and elegant. The most important accessory is the joie de vivre of the Italian woman!
