Go-Go-Gio! W Magazine September 2013

Go-Go-Gio! W Magazine, September 2013
By Kristin Sekora

In this, my inaugural edition of “Go-Go-Gio!” covering Giovanna Battaglia’s monthly column in W Magazine, I thought I would have the scoop of all scoops! A quite literal scoop as a matter of fact… As I perused the wonderful photos that our insouciant fashion mistress posted, right next to a photo of the two new kittens her sister had received was a photo, presumably of Gio, scooping her own little kittens (slang for breasts) in her hands and wearing an exquisite necklace her friend had designed. My first lead was to be, “Gio Goes Topless for W!” But 36 words into the 47-word blurb it says the photo is of the designer friend. I believe Giovanna did this on purpose!

Another wonderful photo is of Giovanna Battaglia and Pedro Almodovar at the Met Gala, their arms wrapped around each other. Her shoes were killing her and they are off her feet, Pedro and Gio each talking into a shoe as if it were a telephone. Some platform shoes should come with insurance policies. Here is my own Swarvoski-cystal-covered pair that almost ended my life at an Equality California Awards Gala. I will have them converted into a telephone!

“Ring, Ring!”

Finally, our subversive editor is photographed with a blue “helmet” hat on from Chanel looking unusually serious with her arms folded and her lips closed. She mentions that the hat looks like a “very chic bob,” but what she neglects to say is that Karl Lagerfeld created the hats as a play on Anna Wintour’s hairstyle. There cannot be two editors more different than Anna and Gio!

Bernie, Gio is a Contributing Fashion Editor and styles a lot of the editorials. She also styles for other magazines.
