Dubbed a cyber icon and fashion heroine by the New York Times, Italian fashion editor and stylist Giovanna Battaglia is known for her colourful street style and fun-loving personality. Her monthly column in W chronicles fashion, art, and adventure. In this, her first book, she has written an irreverent how-to guide for dressing for every occasion, finding fashion inspiration, living stylishly, and having fun while doing it. Covering style and beauty for daytime, night time, travel, and work, this book is brimming with chic and inspirational wisdom, from how to pull off bold fashion moves like barely-there tops, enormous hats, and powerful reds; advice for how to survive fashion emergencies (like what happens when you show up to an event in the same dress as someone else); and her secrets for donning multiple outfits in a day (bodysuits are key). Also featured are tips and tricks she has learned from fashion-world friends such as Carolina Herrera, Derek Blasberg, Hamish Bowles, and Anna Dello Russo. Filled with humour and style, this is a must-have book for anyone interested in fashion and having a good time.

"Imagine a cross between a tongue-in-cheek style guide (one that tells you what to wear to get over a hangover, for example) and a dispatch from a worldly, joy-filled adventure (what it's like to attend a White House State dinner) and you have Gio_Graphy, which is filled with colorful fashion and travel images, punctuated by personal anecdotes."
"Giovanna's artful snaps illustrate her new book, Gio_Graphy: Fun in the Wild World of Fashion (Rizzoli), which chronicles her adventures in dressing up. "
