Giannini is tall, skinny and has a fair complexion, said a source. During her Fendi days, she dressed down with jeans and blouses. “She’s not an obvious fashionista,” said one source, recalling her look at Fendi.
When Gucci lured Giannini to head up its accessories division, she was especially excited to have more space and autonomy, a condition guaranteed by Tom Ford, said one source. Giannini shuttles back and forth from Rome to Florence and heads up to Milan to dip into the archives and for company meetings.
