Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

As one of the jury members for the 2012 Venice Film Festival, Laetitia Casta took to the red carpet tonight for the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the Opening Ceremony this evening.

The French actress was of course wearing a Dolce & Gabbana gown. You could ID this signature gown from the moon.

Her black-lace sheer gown with tonal embellishments was allowed to dazzle due to the effortless styling, which included black platform heels, smoky eyes and a simple bun.

I know many of you are tired of this bra and panties baring formula which works so well for the brand, but how do you feel about this look on this occasion?

    I think a black, short camisole-like lining could do wonders for this look. I don’t like this, specially in such a classy situation.

    Have to say I’m scholing in horror tat this look, and am quite disappointed as I had high hopes from her. Tackiness aside, the bra + panties + lace dress combination feels dated.

    I don’t like it at all. It would have looked much better lined. In its attempt to be sexy, it actually looks unflattering on her killer body. And the shoes?? The platform in the front looks very cheap – she could have at least worn a strappy sandal. She’s beautiful but the look is a fail.

    don’t like it. she tries way too hard, like she did at the Cesars (she wore a see through gown without a bra)

  5. tiffany August 29, 2012 at 20:00 #

    I’m mortified, but willing to admit I jus tmay not get why this is desirable. Add the chunky-looking platform heel and I’m just too unimpressed.

      I know what you mean. And can you imagine everyone taking your photo and then walking around interacting with people at a formal event when they’re all looking at you in your underwear?

  6. Serena August 29, 2012 at 20:00 #

    Really don’t like this. And I don’t think I would have liked it for a different occasion.

  7. Nat39 August 29, 2012 at 20:05 #

    I think it’s a disaster including hair and makeup. She just doesn’t look good.

      +2. Tasteless. And not particularly flattering.

    • Sea August 30, 2012 at 03:34 #

      The outfit couldn’t have been worse!

  8. Malinda Jane August 29, 2012 at 20:06 #

    She is undeniably beautiful and has an enviable body. But, I’m totally 100% over the sheer, “look at my bra and granny panties” trend. It never looks sophisticated and practically always looks cheap.

    • Rash August 30, 2012 at 03:54 #

      +1. Its very dated and everything here looks disaster !

    • Alina August 30, 2012 at 08:10 #

    Nope, dont like it, i feel like the bra and panties are so regular what you wear every day. No i dont expect so elobrate bra and panty set but the gown isnt glamourous

  10. Ioana August 29, 2012 at 20:08 #

    She is beautiful.

    But this dress looks TACKY and CHEAP.

    • Christine August 29, 2012 at 23:12 #

      +1 I feel like this been done before. Same ol dress.

  11. dee August 29, 2012 at 20:09 #

    Terrible.

  12. Ritika August 29, 2012 at 20:18 #

    I think the look works better when the top half is lined and the skirt remains sheer. It would also have shown off the studded neckline better. As is the look feels too tacky.

  13. Fiona-Brasil August 29, 2012 at 20:19 #

    ‘There’s no such thing as bad publicity’ ….If this is her motto she accomplished her goal, otherwise she does not look at her best.

  14. Noemi August 29, 2012 at 20:30 #

    When I saw her arriving on the red carpet I thought “wow, I love this dress!”. I don’t think it’s tacky, because she’s not, and tackiness for me is a way of being, 99% of the times. But I think that every time she got interviewed she says that she’s a mother, a thinking woman, an actress and that she doesn’t want to be reminded that she’s beautiful and that she has become famous because of her body. What!?! She become famous as a model, she posed naked etc and then she wears a dress like this? She’s beautiful of course, because she couldn’t become famous thanks of her intelligence, for sure. Can I say that I’m tired of these beautiful women who say that beauty doens’t matter and that it’s all about personality?

  15. Rebecca Z August 29, 2012 at 20:30 #

    The lace is pretty, and the shape of the overdress is okay tho I don’t much like the neckline in front, but I have never liked the bra and panty thing–especially the panty part. Not a winner in my book.

  16. Stephanie August 29, 2012 at 20:41 #

    It is a lace dress over underwear…
    I have never been for the bra or panties showing. Nothing classy about it. This certainly does nothing to change that opinion.

    Not for everybody.. I wouldn’t wear this look.. but Laticia Looks great !

  18. rosdays.blogspot.co.il August 29, 2012 at 20:45 #

    Not for everybody.. I wouldn’t wear this look.. but she Looks great !

  19. FelipeA August 29, 2012 at 21:08 #

    I am so sick and tired of this dress from D&G. Laetitia is gorgeous always, but it’s not because of this dress. It looks underdesigned, like a cheap knock-off

  20. lisa August 29, 2012 at 21:22 #

    HATE!

  21. Wafa August 29, 2012 at 21:32 #

    I actually like it, it’s quite gutsy.

  22. Sanette August 29, 2012 at 21:41 #

    Wow, this is really bad. It’s the Venice film festival for god’s sake.

  23. Moxie August 29, 2012 at 21:46 #

    Tacky!

  24. Francois B August 29, 2012 at 22:12 #

    This looks so tacky for such an event!
    What was she thinking? She looks like she was at the beach just before and randomly put a lace dress over her swimsuit… I hate it from top of head to bottom of toe

  25. Kathy August 29, 2012 at 22:13 #

    I don’t find it tacky, considering the luxurious look/material of the lace, but I dislike it nonetheless.

  26. Sarah August 29, 2012 at 22:39 #

    It was wonderful.
    She can.
    Has a perfect body.

  27. Dhppy August 29, 2012 at 23:34 #

    When Dita Von Teese, despite her extensive knowledge of underwear, couldn’t pull off this look, I thought no one could. Casta has confirmed this.

  28. Jones19 August 29, 2012 at 23:50 #

    This look has been done to death but I really like it though. The chunky shoes have got to though.

  29. Prian August 30, 2012 at 01:58 #

    Tacky.

    And to think she was the jury, makes it look worse in my eyes.

  30. Fiona August 30, 2012 at 03:31 #

    I am tired of it, especially at a formal event like this it is just tacky and not really that flattering. It takes my eye away from the gown which is actually quite dazzling. Don’t like the makeup either, nor the sandals.

  31. Zissou August 30, 2012 at 08:56 #

    If you are going to wear a see-through dress, then leave the underwear at home. And if you don’t have the balls for it, I am sorry, the vagina for it, then don’t wear a freaking see-through dress!

  32. Beta August 30, 2012 at 09:12 #

    I dunno, if britney spears has already worn it like 5 years ago, its time to rethink the fashion choice
    agree with the dated look
    Laetitia sure has a million options! she can do better

  33. Valerie August 30, 2012 at 09:30 #

    I’m getting a 90s vibe, and that’s never good. Come on, it’s the Venice film festival, give me some old school film diva drama.

  34. Nat August 30, 2012 at 11:12 #

    No no no, Laetitia. You’re so much better than this.

    I really hope she redeems herself in the next days, this is a total disaster.

  35. Pene August 30, 2012 at 13:05 #

    NOT A FAN. ITS SOMEWHAT A LOUNGERIE

  36. Phcritic August 30, 2012 at 15:15 #

    BORING BORING BORING
    she is the new dolce e gabbana testimonial, so it her dress choice was obvious. In a such formal occasion you can’t use this kind of outfit! You know, this festival in Italy it s like the Oscar or Cannes…where have you left , laetitia ,glamour and elegance?
