Nieves Alvarez In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Birdman’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Nieves Alvarez In Alberta Ferretti - 'Birdman' Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Nieves Alvarez stunned while taking to the red carpet for the ‘Birdman’ premiere which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy this evening (August 24).

The raspberry hue of this Alberta Ferretti frock was enough to bowl me over, but add the intricate detailing, the open back and Bulgari Haute Couture jewels and we have yet another BDOTW contender.

Styled also with a magenta and gold Salvatore Ferragamo clutch, the only thing I would dare change about this look is to add an elegant updo.

Sarah Gadon also swept along the red carpet this evening (August 24) for the ‘Birdman’ premiere which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

This is the actress’s second Armani Privé gown in a row following her appearance at Cannes.

On this occasion her nude gown with shimmering gold stripes was from the Fall 2013 collection.

I was ready to fully embrace this look as I felt that her sultry smoky eyes and dark lip somewhat aided in preventing her from looking too washed out.

However, all my initial feelings about this look disappeared when I noticed the outline of her underwear.

Liya Kebede swept along the red carpet this evening (August 24) for the ‘Birdman’ premiere which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

The model wore a beautiful Alberta Ferretti black strapless gown with an organza mock-feathered bodice and tulle skirt which was made for an occasion such as this.

While I don’t mind the lack of colour from this look, the makeup – or lack thereof – is really throwing me off this look.

She accessorized with diamond earrings and a black and gold Salvatore Ferragamo clutch.

Having already attended the jurors photocall earlier in the day, Moran Atias made a return to the red carpet this evening (August 24) for the ‘Birdman’ premiere which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

Opting for that striking cool-blue hue once again, the actress wore a figure-hugging, curve-defining strapless gown with curved folds and a signature panelled fishtail skirt, which is unmistakably a Zac Posen look.

Decked out with a stunning pair of diamond-encrusted Faraone Gioielli earrings and a Swarovski silver python ‘Nirvana Star’ clutch, uber-glossy wavy locks and a deep-berry lip colour provided the finishing touches to this jaw-dropping look.

Consider me blown away.

Zhao Wei In Vivienne Westwood Couture - 'Dearest' Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Zhao Wei graced the red carpet this evening (August 27) for the ‘Dearest’ premiere, which also served as the opening ceremony for the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

Giving us the first of many breathtaking moments we are no doubt going to see during this festival, the actress looked stunning wearing a Vivienne Westwood Couture gown.

Her pink silk strapless gown with a rise-and-fall hemline and figure-defining silhouette was styled with amethyst drop earrings, a gold clutch and sparkling pumps to round out her look.

While this is quite a pretty pink princess moment, the look still manages to retain the British label’s signature dramatic style.
