You've seen your precious iPhone take a tumble enough times to know that a sturdy case is non-negotiable. And even fashion's coolest ladies can commiserate. Thankfully, Giovanna Battaglia, the former D&G model (who went on to become the editor of L'Uomo Vogue and contributing fashion editor to W), has designed three gorgeously feminine and elegant iPhone 5 cases along with the tech-protect experts at Case Scenario.
