Kristin Scott Thomas In Giambattista Valli – ‘Cherchez Hortense’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

It’s not often we see Kristin Scott Thomas stepping out of her favoured colour palette of black, navy and grey, but she surprised us on Saturday night.

The British actress took to the red carpet at the 2012 Venice Film Festival wearing a Giambattista Valli Resort 2013 silk paisley print skirt and top for the ‘Cherchez Hortense’ premiere.

With her hair swept up into a chic updo, she added a rich red lip colour and a selection of breathtaking jewels including two-tone statement earrings.

A gold sparkling Christian Louboutin Maykimay clutch completed her look.

Do you love this new look from Kristin, or do you prefer her more classic style?

    She definitely stepped out of her comfort zone, and it’s been a great choice because she looks great. Beautiful dress and accessories.

    Not loving this. too mumsy

    • Nat39 September 4, 2012 at 19:30 #

      While I like the look itself, she does end up looking mumsy, plus she is not tall enough to pull this off.

    I was on the fence, but she pushed me over to her side. I still feel she may be a little too young for this ( I could easily see Barbara Walters in something similar), but she looks elegant.

    That smile says it all.

    Best she’s ever looked!

  15. katie September 4, 2012 at 15:28 #

    She looks totally radiant, the colour is fab on her, love it!

    Appreciate the attempt at the new look but a billowy, large paisley print caftan doesn’t work for me–or her.
