‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

'Miu Miu Women's Tales #7 - #8' - Premiere - 71st Venice Film Festival

A collection of six starlets were at the ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7-#8’ premiere, held during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28). Naturally, all were representing the label, donning a range of Miu Miu looks that couldn’t have each been more different if they tried.

Dakota Fanning: The trendsetting starlet wore a Miu Miu creamy white satin sheath dress with beaded embellishment, paired with nude platform Miu Miu pumps and a bejeweled grass-green Miu Miu clutch. I would have loved to see the same punch of colour in her shoe, along with an updo.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress went for a retro spin in an A-line Miu Miu dress featuring a funky blue and white swirl print. She accessorized with pops of silver via her clutch and sandals, not to mention the flash of those side-swept platinum locks.

Kate Mara: Donning the same nude platforms as Dakota, Kate wore hers with a nude Miu Miu dress with allover paillettes and a sparkling, decorative neckline. The design was pretty and carried with it a vintage flair, but the colour washed out her complexion, especially with her neutral makeup.

Felicity Jones: Her embellished, midnight-blue Miu Miu dress with sheer sleeves had the fall season written all over it. Black pointy pumps did nothing to lighten the look, but the actress did take a more summery, breezy approach to her barely-there makeup.

Lena Dunham: Once again opting for a head-scratcher of a look, the ‘Girls’ star didn’t exactly stand out for the right reasons in her sombre, daresay frumpy, patterned frock. The Prada dress and the flat, block-heel sandals aged her far beyond my liking—as did her beehive ’do.

Nicoletta Romanoff: The only one to really embrace what’s left of summer, Nicoletta was the most polished of the bunch in her flirty and youthful white ruffle blouse and lemon-yellow skirt by Miu Miu, paired with breezy waves and sun-kissed makeup. If I were to nitpick, I would have selected a colourful, fun sandal not this chunkier brown pair.

    thumbs down to hooker platform shoes on Dakota Fanning and Kate Mara.

    Felicity Jones and Dakota fanning are my favorite ones. Lena Dunham… why? This look ages her so much!

    I certainly had to check to see that was Lena Dunham – she is improved from Emmys in one respect but she certainly looks older than her years and the sandals really frump down the whole look. Not struck on any of these looks really.

    Dakota of the bunch. Even the clunky shoe works for her and the cute green clutch is a perfect accent, I don’t think she needs an extra color pop.

    Catherine the next post is not current. It shows past posts. Just FYI.

    Kate and Dakota look good. I prefer Dunst’s 2nd look to this and poor Lena just keeps topping herself in the AWFUL department this week.

    I love Lena’s look here !
    The hair is perfect and the dress looks great on her. Yes, it makes her look older but I don’t mind, it suits her.

      I agree, I love the hair and the dress, it makes her look very bohemian.

      +1. I’ll admit, I’m a Lena defender, but that aside I don’t see anything “head-scratching” about her look. Miu Miu is a very ’60s inspired brand so Lena’s look completely works, beehive especially. She looks cute.

    • Taylahre August 30, 2014 at 01:58 #

      I agree wholeheartedly -she is a bigger girl and this look works for a bigger girl

      “head scratching” – my head is not being scratched , this is a 60’s look for miu miu which gets much of its concepts from that era

    Nicoletta Romanoff is my favourite here.

    Yikes! Not liking anyone here at all. And what the H E double hockey sticks is Lena doing? No to the hair, dress, shoes, and especially the pose. She looks like the Mom of everyone in that pic with her.

    Felicity Jones is my favorite here.
