It was always going to be a two clotheshorse race this week with both Kasia Smutniak and Kate Hudson blowing us away in Valentino and Atelier Versace, respectively, during the 2012 Venice Film Festival.

Kate eventually won, looking breathtaking and BDOTY-worthy in her nude Swarovski embellished gown styled with an Edie Parker clutch.

The Venice Film Festival many not be on the same large scale as Cannes, but we can always rely on Venice to give us at least one Atelier Versace major magic hall of fame moment.
