Giovanna Battaglia and friends were the focus of an editorial titled "Dress Gangs" that appeared in the January 2006 issue of Vogue UK. The group, comprised of Giovanna, stylist Susan Bender, and fashion scout Camilla Al Fayed, was photographed by Mischa Richter. The three friends came together through their love of style, in particular they share a Christian Louboutin shoe fetish. Apparently they spend a lot of time in Camilla's well-stocked walk-in closet (not to be confused with her separate room devoted to bags and shoes) throwing dress-up parties that often turn into sleepovers. Sounds fabulous! Doesn't Gio look remarkably different with her hair straightened? Hard to believe but I think she may be even more gorgeous this way.
