“Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans” Photocall
Eva Mendes was still glowing after her red carpet appearance the previous night, when she arrived at the Excelsior Hotel with her co-star Nicholas Cage for their photocall.
She wore a soft nude J.Mendel dress with black lace sleeves, paired with the Dolce & Gabbana headband she wore to the opening ceremony.
Will Eva become the Paris Hilton of the Venice Film Festival and wear headbands to every occasion?
Eva completed her look with black peep-toes and a stylish Salvatorre Ferragamo gathered leather hobo.
Manuela Velasco opted for ballet flats with her striped Chanel Spring 2007 mini dress, which we have seen on Katie Holmes.
I adored Manuela Velasco’s premiere look.
Her nude dress with an embellished bodice reminded me of the many emellished pieces from the Miu Miu Fall 2009 collection.
Manuela did kinda let me down with the black heels – such a safe choice – but the silver clutch perfectly complemented the silver beaded details on her bodice.
Opening Ceremony Dinner
Iris had funnily enough just added this Valentino Spring 2009 Couture strapless dress to her wish list for Britney Spears.
Not sure Brit Brit could pull this off, but Isabella Borromeo looks fabulous in this green gown with a thigh-high spilt.
I love the embellished bodice, but it looks like the foliage around her neckline needs watering as it looks a bit limp.
Barbara Palombelli opted for a Moshino Fall 2009 navy and red floral dress, which is versatile enough to be worn day or night.
The floral appliqué detail on her shoulder are so pretty.
Barbara pairs her dress with classic wooden wedges.
Gisella Marengo would’ve stood out at this event wearing sexy Roberto Cavalli Resort 2009 one-sleeved gown in a gorgeous ocean blue colour.
A silver clutch and a winning smile complete the look.
I much prefer Nicole Grimaudo’s modified Gucci Fall 2009 ensemble to the runway version.
Her version is cutier, sassier and I just love her curly bob.
When Jenna Dewan wore this Blumarine Fall 2009, she was oozing sexy appeal.
Even though Italian actress Eliana Miglio is wearing the same strapless aqua ruched dress, she makes it appear more charming than overtly sexy.
