Elisa Sednaoui In Armani Privé - ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Elisa Sednaoui attended the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

As the festival hostess she didn’t disappoint, looking resplendent in Armani Privé.

This simple, classic silhouette seems to be favour for this festival, perhaps in a bid shake things up from snooze-fest that was Cannes Film Festival.

Once again the look was enhanced with a selection of jewels from Buccellati.

Goya Toledo In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Goya Toledo In Elie Saab Couture - ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Goya Toledo attended the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

The Spanish actress was not going to use this event to change her allegiance; Elie Saab will always be her red carpet king.

While the comb-over hairstyle and OTT earrings are doing their best to throw me off this look, Goya’s grace and regal Spring 2015 Couture princess gown still manage to win me over.

Diane Kruger In Prada – ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Diane Kruger In Prada - ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening

Diane Kruger attended the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

I have tried – with every fibre of my being – to love this gown, but I can’t.

Not just because it’s a Prada gown, because her last Prada gown was outstanding. It’s the train. The train feels so matronly and stagnate.

Plus the gown feels like it was designed for a woman much older than Diane.

Styled with a Lee Savage clutch and Kwiat jewels, this is nice enough, but will not have pride of place on my best dressed list.

Paz Vega In Ralph & Russo Couture - 'Everest' Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Paz Vega attended the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

Ralph & Russo dominated Cannes Film Festival, and on sight of this majestic pale grey halter gown with glass bead and pearl droplet embellishments, I hope they’re on course to do it again.

I’m all for a princess moment, especially during a European film festival, but the removal of the tulle train took this look to another level; from romantic to femme fatale.

So far, this is so much better than Cannes.

Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Everest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Elizabeth Banks In Dolce & Gabbana -  'Everest' Venice Film Festival & Opening Ceremony

Elizabeth Banks returned to the red carpet for the ‘Everest’ premiere which was part of the opening ceremony of the 2015 Venice Film Festival on Wednesday (September 2).

As I said in the previous post, I have longed for Elizabeth to grace the European film festival stage, so picture me almost shedding tears of joy and pure adulation at seeing my girl look breath-taking in Dolce & Gabbana tonight.

Yes, those ripples on the waist are preventing this from being a perfect 10, and yes those black ribbons at the back are far from ideal, but the gown fits like a glove.

Styled with a Dolce & Gabbana clutch, Kwiat earrings and a Harry Kotlar ring, Elizabeth was serving up nothing but movie star glamour. And that’s all I ask for.

Paz Vega In Salvatore Ferragamo – Venice Film Festival Jury Photocall

Paz Vega In Salvatore Ferragamo - Venice Film Festival Jury Photocall

Paz Vega made it a hat-trick of floral looks to grace the red carpet for the jury photocall during the 2015 Venice Film Festival this afternoon (September 2) in Venice, Italy, following Elizabeth Banks and Diane Kruger.

Serving up plenty of vintage flare, the Spanish beauty wore a stylish Salvatore Ferragamo dress from the Resort 2016 collection which I love for its graphic lily print and the pentagonal volume added to the hips.

Ferragamo black peep toe satin platform shoes completed her chic, retro look.
