I hadn’t been that excited about any of the gowns we’d seen so far at the 2011 Rome Film Festival.

That all changed when Carolina Crescentini stepped onto the red carpet for the ‘L’Industriale’ premiere yesterday evening.

She looked graceful as she glided down the red carpet wearing a Valentino Resort 2012 gown.

Her mint-green gown with floral appliqués was accented with a ribbon tied to the waist.

I love her classy updo and her beaded clutch which perfectly complements her gown.

Carolina injected some much-needed old Hollywood glamour into this event.

This is my first contender for BDOTW.
