The 2011 Venice Film Festival kicks off today, and I couldn’t be happier after being starved of glamour for the past few weeks.

Whilst it won’t be on the same large scale as Cannes Film Festival, I am hoping the event will still bring us many BDOTY worthy moments.

So far Evan Rachel Wood, George Clooney and Cindy Crawford have arrived in Venice for the festivities.

Hopefully we will get to see some Atelier Versace, Elie Saab, Giambattista Valli, Armani Privé and Valentino Couture pieces during this event as well as the European Film Festival favourites; Alberta Ferretti, Emilio Pucci and Roberto Cavalli.
