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?
