• “For his spring 2014 Chanel show, Karl Lagerfeld transformed the Grand Palais in Paris into a huge art gallery, with installations that looked like actual works for sale. Finally, a bag big—and chic—enough to hold all my stuff!”
  • “I was leaving the Rodarte show in New York with my friend the artist Maurizio Cattelan. Suddenly, all these photographers were taking my picture. Maurizio was like, ‘Giovanna, are you famous?’ and started jumping up and down behind them.”
  • “These stingray shoes from the Italian designer Marco de Vincenzo’s spring show are just killer! On the feet, they look kind of mean—spiky and futuristic. But if you put them together in a wheel, like this, with all the colors, they bring to mind a beautiful origami flower.”
  • “I had lunch with the creative director Christine Thomas at Sant Ambroeus, in New York. 
She had never been there, and when she asked if her dress was okay, I said, ‘It’s perfect!’ I knew 
she would match the seating.”
  • “The jewelry designer Sue Gragg sent me this amazing scarf she had made using a print of me by Hayden Williams . Normally, I’m not a fan of logos, but this is fine because I’m the logo. I’m my own favorite brand.”
