Giovanna Battaglia At Dolce & Gabbana Ballo In Maschera

To celebrate Alta Moda, their latest collection, Stefano Gabbana and Domenico Dolce hosted a lavish party in Venice, "Un Ballo In Maschera" (or in English, "Masked Ball"), and of course Giovanna Battaglia was la bella del ballo! She and her sister, Sara, made for a memorable duo, dressed nearly as twins for the special occasion. Resplendent in a gold crystal bustier from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2012 collection and a hot pink cape accented with an elaborate neck ruff and dazzling harlequin tights, Gio topped off her ensemble with a purple butterfly mask and a headdress of pink and purple flowers and feathers. 

Dolce and Gabbana attempted to recreate their mascherano in the tradition of the famous Venetian masquerade ball Il Ballo del Doge, hosting their soirée in the same venue, the Palazzo Pisani Moretta on the Canal Grande. Along with the invitation, each guest received a Venetian mask made by hand especially for him or her for the party; among those so honored were Caterina Murino, Paloma Faith, Daisy Lowe, Karen Elson, Anna Dello Russo, Rose McGowan, Audrey Tautou, Franca Sozzani, Coco and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda, Diego Bivero, Olivia Grant, Tabitha Simmons, Hamish Bowles, Eugenia Silva, Alfonso de Borbon, Naomi Miller, Kate King, and Giulia Manin. The music ranged from polkas and waltzes to Daft Punk, with Stefano Gabbana and Graziano Della Nebbia taking turns on the decks while guests enjoyed Bellinis in the style of Harry's Bar, one of Venice's best loved cocktails. Cin cin!
