Helen Mirren In Sassi Holford – The Leisure Seeker (Ella & John) Venice Film Festival Premiere

Dame Helen Mirren graced Venice Film Festival with her regal presence on Sunday (September 3).

Photocall: Ordinarily a top-handle bag would feel too much for a photocall, but methinks she said to herself, “what would her majesty do?” then opted for the Dolce & Gabanna ‘Monica’ bag which coordinated effortlessly with her fancy, floral frock.

Premiere: The British actress joined her co-star Donald Sutherland and Susan Sarandon for the premiere, opting for a more sedate approach to red carpet dressing in Sassi Holford. Sadly, I really dislike the gown. It does nothing to enhance her beauty, it feels really dated and the quality of the material is questionable. She can do so much better.

Julianne Moore In Louis Vuitton & Valentino Couture – ‘Suburbicon’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Julianne Moore joined George Clooney and Matt Damon for the ‘Suburbicon’ photocall and premiere, which took place during the 74th Annual Venice Film Festival today (September 2).

Photocall: Judging from her previous look, whimsy was the red carpet M.O. for Julianne during the photocalls for this festival. Her Louis Vutton Resort 2018 dress featuring a Kabuki-inspired embroidery added a fun, characterful element to her look. I would’ve loved a lighter sandal here.

Premiere: I have desperately been trying to find something to love about this Valentino Fall 2017 Couture look, but I failed. Yes, even with shimmering eyelash fringing and emerald Chopard jewels that complemented her layered crop, the look fell a little flat. I’m disappointed because I expected a bit more for this event. Looking at this, the best analogy I can give you to describe this look is – driving with the handbrake on.

Chloe Sevigny In Miu Miu – ‘Lean On Pete’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Chloe Sevigny was having a Miu Miu moment today (September 1) during Venice Film Festival while promoting her new film, ‘Lean on Pete’.

Photocall: Orchestrating a charming summery impression, I love the retro inspired styling for her on-trend gingham Miu Miu romper. I’m not usually a fan of kitten heels, yet they work seamlessly with the nonchalant vibe of the look alongside a small, but perfectly formed, Miu Miu bucket bag featuring a medley of paisley, elephant and sphinx prints from the Spring 2012 collection.

Premiere: Her second Miu Miu frock appeared to take its cues from flamenco dresses. With its V-neck and delicate ruffles, it was ready for heeled sandals and a glamorous clutch. Sadly, not all the accessories worked on this occasion. The Miu Miu shoes are typically quirky so I can live with them, it’s the velvet black bag that throws me off. Had it been in green to complement the sequin apples, perhaps I would’ve been on board.

Jane Fonda In Alberta Ferretti & Marchesa – ‘Our Souls At Night’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Jane Fonda is often at Cannes representing L’Oreal, but today (September 1) she was at Venice Film Festival to promote her film, ‘Our Souls At Night’.

Photocall: I love how Jane’s Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2017 jumpsuit blends unbridled glamour with military-inspired traits. Styled with Pomellatto jewels, Christian Louboutin shoes and a Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, this woman can seriously do no wrong.

Premiere: I know some of you can’t understand my love for Marchesa, but this dusty blue tulle gown featuring all over 3D floral embroidery plus feathers, is a classic example of why the love is strong. This is a simply stunning creation made for a movie star. I don’t think she’s ever looked more radiant. The look was styled with a Rene Caovilla clutch and Pomellatto jewels. The icing on this cake is picture of Jane and her Armani-clad co-star Robert Redford, as they are shining examples of how to grow old gracefully.

Sally Hawkins In Vivienne Westwood – ‘The Shape Of Water’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Sally Hawkins joined her co-star Octavia Spencer for ‘The Shape Of Water’ 74th Venice Film Festival photocall and premiere on Thursday (August 31).

Photocall: The British actress was oozing a carefree vibe in this flowy chiffon maxi dress, featuring a vivid print hinting at her quirky personality.

Premiere: As always, no prizes for guessing she wore Vivienne Westwood for the premiere. While some might have issues with the rust colour – which I actually don’t mind – my greatest issue are her Jimmy Choos. They were far too distracting as they didn’t complement the elegant gown at all.

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘The Shape Of Water’ Venice Film Festival Photocall & Premiere

Octavia Spencer is in Italy to promote her new film, ‘The Shape Of Water’ during the 74th Venice Film Festival on Thursday (August 31), where she of course wore Tadashi Shoji.

I don’t know about you, but I found myself being surprisingly underwhelmed by Octavia on this occasion.

Photocall: This style fits Octavia to a tee, but this dress would’ve been so much better had the lining not been so stark. It was the wrong shade for this navy dress.

Premiere: While I do love this look, especially the wine-hue, I would’ve loved something that was more in tune with the grand occasion. This as a gown would’ve been magical for me. Lorraine Schwartz jewels completed her look.
