Giovanna is one of those super sweet girls with a super sweet voice and gentle manners. But place her in front of a camera and she completely transforms in a real model. She knows hot to move, how to pose, she’s not shy at all, and most of all she’s got eyes so deep that can pierce right through you and your lenses.
It was a blast to shoot her in this back to school inspired editorial for Grazia.it
Make-upby my friend and Grazia’s beauty editor Daniela Losini
PS. Funny story, for a misunderstanding Giovanna didn’t bring any clothes of her own the day of the shooting, so most of the pieces she’s wearing are form my own (very back to school inspired) wardrobe : )
Long deep black hair, perfect make-up and big oversized t-shirts. Laura (Giulia’s twin sister) knows exactly what she wants and likes to wear, to do and to listen to. Her rocker, dark attitude (which of course I find irresistible) is soften by her sweet eyes and her sweet face. She’s the one who truly likes to experiment stuff in the beauty/hair department: she dyed her hair multiple times, she had one side of her head totally white and the other one totally black, she shaved part of her hair and so on. I respect you girl.
I’m wandering if she will stay true to this hip-hop guyish vibe or if I’ll start seeing her on high heels and A-line skirts soon. That should be FUN.
Giulia is the protagonist of the second August series of pics. She and her sister Laura are twins, and I remember I couldn’t tell each other apart when they were younger. Now, at sixteen years old, they developed a different personality and a very different style, but their features will always tell you the truth.
Here you can see Giulia caught completely “off guard”, no make-up, college socks and a big grey jumper. Just as simple and perfect as you could imagine a teenager during a lazy Summer afternoon by the pool. Her nonchalant, accidental nineties style immediately conquered me.

This August I spent one week at my husband’s house at the gorgeous Lake of Garda. Unfortunately the weather was so bad that we were forced to stay inside and find all kinds of recreational activities like board games, cards, cooking banana breads and croissants, reading books and magazines of all sorts and so on.
Lucky for me I had my camera and I could herass my husband’s teen cousins for days. Three sisters, so similar and yet so different one from the other in character and style, I’m so curious to see them grow up and evolve. I guess I’ll be there shooting them every Summer.
First of this August batch is Martina, the eldest. Twenty years old and a smile that could (and probably would) conquer the world. I love how her tattoos clash with the romantic forte_forte baby blue pleated dress. Enjoy.
