Runway to Real Life: Marion Cotillard in Valentino, Giovanna Battaglia in Christian Dior and More (Forum Buzz)

Fashion events and film premieres equal the perfect occasions for right-off-the-runway ensembles. Here, Giovanna Battaglia, Anna Wintour, Marion Cotillard and Jessica Chastain show us how it’s done wearing French and Italian designs from the likes of Christian Dior, Prada, Valentino and Nina Ricci.

Professional fashion maven Giovanna attended a WSJ Magazine party wearing Christian Dior. She paired the dress with simple black pumps and echoed the runway look’s center part, but wore her hair pulled back rather than down.

Her alterations? Successful. There’s a reason she makes a living as a stylist and the pumps were a definite improvement over the runway’s lace-up open-toe booties.
