Kasia Smutniak In Armani Privé – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Girl of the moment Kasai Smutniak attended the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ at the opening ceremony of the Venice Film Festival yesterday evening.

Kasia went simple for the occasion, wearing a sleek red long-sleeved Armani Privé gown.

Covered from the front, Kasia flashed a hint of skin via a low reverse V-neck, which shows off her sleek chignon – as well as her small neck tattoo.

The Polish actress opted to go clutchless, accessorizing with small studs and a large cocktail ring.

You may have a touch of déjà vu when it comes to this look. That’s because Uma Thurman wore a slightly modified version of this gown to the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony back in May 2011.

Are you a fan of this simple look, or were you wishing for a bit more excitement?

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – Venice Film Festival Dinner

The 69th Venice Film Festival hasn’t even started yet and I am already developing a style crush on Kasia Smutniak.

The host of the opening and closing ceremony gives us her third look in two days, by attending a pre-festival dinner party in Venice this evening.

She looked very graceful wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 gown.

Once again she opts for minimal styling wearing her sleeveless black embroidered floor-length gown.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the length of her gown which is ankle-length on the model.

Keeping the same chic chignon from the photocall earlier in the day, she added a darker lip colour for this occasion.

Kasia’s photocall look is still my favourite.

Which do you favour?

The Jil Sander dress, the Valentino photocall dress or this evening’s Valentino gown?

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – 2012 Venice Film Festival Photocall

Kasia Smutniak took part in another photocall ahead of the 69th Venice Film Festival at the Villa Laguna in Venice, Italy, this afternoon.

If her intention was to redeem herself from her previous photocall look, mission accomplished.

The Polish-born actress was radiant wearing a Valentino Resort 2013 dress.

Her multi-coloured floral-print maxi dress with a white collar and cuffs, plus a bow-accented belt cinching her waist was the perfect way to kick-start proceedings.

Let’s face it, we’ve experienced a very uneventful summer, so I have been waiting for this festival to inject some much needed glamour back onto the red carpet.

Kate Hudson’s return to the red carpet at this festival has been much anticipated, but on this evidence the one to watch is Kasia.

The actress completed her look with a silver brooch intertwined into her chic chignon and perfectly coordinated peach pumps.

Kasia Smutniak In Jil Sander – 69th Venice International Film Festival Photocall

Before Venice Film Festival officially starts tomorrow, Kasia Smutniak attended a photocall yesterday afternoon to announce herself as the host of the 69th Venice International Film Festival’s Opening and Closing ceremonies.

The Polish-born actress and model wore a Jil Sander Fall 2012 dress for the occasion.

I would’ve loved this charming navy wool off-the-shoulder dress with a charming sweetheart neckline and a cinched-in waist which has the nude-illusion panel in the centre that matched her skin tone.

I find the contrast slightly distracting.

The actress was right to opt for the minimalist approach, keeping the look clean and only selecting neutral pumps, but I just can’t get over the glaring keyhole issue.

You may remember that Gui Lun Mei wore this same dress to the Taipei Film Festival Awards last month.
