Giovanna Battaglia’s Best-Of-Gala Gown—Revealed!

-------

At last night’s amfAR gala in Cannes, one partygoer stood out for us among the rest: stylist and W contributor Giovanna Battaglia, who showed up on the arm of boyfriend Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld in a jaw-dropping, barely-there gown we didn’t recognize. (Internet speculation briefly misidentified it as vintage Versace.)

On a hunch that it was, in fact, vintage, we asked vintage guru Cameron Silver of L.A.’s Decades to weigh in. Silver spotted it straightaway as a Stephen Sprouse. And this afternoon, Battaglia herself wrote in to confirm. The piece, Battaglia says, is a 1992 Sprouse from Rare Vintage, Juliana Cairone’s New York shop. (Longtime readers may remember Cairone from the postcard she sent us from her trip to Hong Kong.) Battaglia paired the gown with Sergio Rossi shoes and clutch and an Emilio Pucci jacket, but the dress itself is clearly the centerpiece. “I was so happy when I found it!” she says. “It’s a true art piece for me.”
