Giovanna Battaglia: Va-Va-Vroom

Giovanna Battaglia appeared in an editorial titled "Find Your Shape" in the September 2006 issue of Vogue. She was subject #3 for the article, "the shrink fit," and she discusses her fervor for microminis and men that can handle it. Clearly, Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld does not have a problem with the length of Gio's skirts. She candidly admits being a fashion addict, hitting rock bottom when she had nothing but jeweled sandals for daywear and backpacking through Thailand for a month to detox from the lifestyle. Oh yes, and her mother thinks that she dresses like a cabaret worker—perfetto!

Vogue Paris February 2010: Daria Werbowy

Sheesh, so much for joining the ranks of the privileged Vogue Paris subscriber... I have yet to receive my initial issue though I see in the online forums that others have had their copies for a couple of days now. Harrumph. Also it seems that the rumors that we would see new blood on this cover were false—though it is a beauty, the model is standby Daria Werbowy in Prada Spring/Summer 2010 shot by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. I am excited to read that there is an interview with Tom Ford and an article with Kate Moss regarding her collaboration with Longchamp. [By the way, is she working for Vogue Paris as an editor now?] The image below is from the editorial "Vogue-à-Porter" styled by Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle Alt, and Camilla Nickerson.

Restoin-Roitfeld Hosts Haiti Benefit

More excellent fundraising work by the Roitfeld family: fashionistas in New York City are uniting to provide support to those left in the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti and Julia Restoin-Roitfeld is lending a helping hand. Julia, along with Narciso Rodriguez, Cynthia Rowley, and others, will host an American Red Cross fundraiser at the Thom Bar in Soho. Teen Vogue and The Misshapes will host another Haiti benefit at the Soho Grand Hotel. If you are in the New York area, please stop by and show your support for this country in need.

Outstanding support for Haiti has come from other generous sources. Sandra Bullock donated $1,000,000 to Doctors Without Borders to rebuild three of the hospitals destroyed by the earthquake in Port-Au-Prince; Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie just gave them another $1,000,000. The tennis stars at this year's Australian Open raised more than $185,000 to benefit the earthquake victims in a special exhibition event dubbed "Hit for Haiti." Oh yes, and the superhero trifecta of presidents is on the case as well heading up a major fundraising effort for Haiti, sounds promising...

Roitfeld And Battaglia At Missoni Show

Last night the Missoni family showcased their Autumn/Winter 2010 menswear collection at a cocktail party in their showroom as part of Milan Fashion Week. Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld and Giovanna Battaglia, pictured above with Margherita Missoni, were in attendance; other party guests included Angela Missoni, Rosita Missoni, Teresa Missoni, Eugenie Niarchos, Chris Brown, Micol Sabbadini, and Suzy Menkes. The Missonis do craft beautiful knits and these models wear them well.

Roitfeld Against AIDS 

On February 10, Carine Roitfeld will be in New York City to help chair the annual amfAR gala at Cipriani 42nd Street. AmfAR works to increase awareness about the HIV/AIDS epidemic and to raise money for research and their gala has always been one of New York’s most successful AIDS benefits. Honorees for the black-tie event are Yves Carcelle, Sir Elton John, and David Furnish; a special tribute will be made in honor of the late Natasha Richardson, a former amfAR trustee. Lady Gaga and Rufus Wainwright are in charge of the evening's entertainment. It looks as though tickets are still available for the gala if you are so inclined.

Another fabulous organization that is working to fight the disease is Designers Against AIDS (DAA). You may know them already through their "Fashion Against AIDS" campaigns with H&M; their spokesperson is model Hannelore Knuts. DAA plans to open their first International HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Center (IHAEC) in Belgium this summer to train students from all over the world to create safe sex campaigns using pop culture elements such as fashion, music, web, celebrities, and video. DAA is still in need of serious funding to make this happen so please consider visiting the web site and making a contribution to this worthy cause.
