In honor of the fiftieth birthday of Hamish Bowles, Giovanna Battaglia attended a costume party on Long Island with a 1920s style theme, "A Little Party Never Killed Nobody." Note that it was no "little party" by any stretch of the imagination; guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn and tours of the gardens followed by dinner and dancer in a stately manner that would have pleased Monsieur Gatsby himself. Of course Giovanna made a fantastic flapper, going for baroque in a sparkling rendition of the style of the period, picture perfect to the pin curl. As Gio herself proclaimed, "Dressing up is certainly one of my favorite things to do." Dress up she did, in a glamorous drop-waisted dress of gold sequins, a vintage cape in green velvet, and her pièce de résistance, a lime green feathered headdress covered in diamond brooches.
