Who Wore Jil Sander Better…Gui Lun Mei or Kasia Smutniak?

Gui Lun Mei attended the 14th Taipei Film Festival awards ceremony in Taipei, Taiwan, back in July, wearing my favourite piece from the Jil Sander Fall 2012 collection.

Her elegant navy wool dress which sits just off the shoulder was styled with simple black heels.

Kasia Smutniak, the breakout star of the 2012 Venice Film Festival, wore the same dress for photocall prior to the festival which announced her as the host of the opening and closing ceremonies.

While I prefer Kasia’s shoe choice, the illusion panel didn’t match her skin tone which I found bothersome, so Gui wins for me.

You can buy Gui Lun Mei and Kasia’s Jil Sander dress from Bergdorf Goodman and Luisa via Roma.

Kasia Smutniak In Valentino – ‘The Master’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

I was under the impression that we would only see Kasia Smutniak at the opening and closing ceremony of the 2012 Venice Film Festival, as she’s the host of both events, but she continues to shine on the red carpet.

The Polish actress wore her third Valentino look when she took to the red carpet at the premiere for ‘The Master’ on Saturday evening.

Giving us an angelic pose, Kasia looked heavenly wearing a nude floral embroidered chiffon gown from the Resort 2013 collection, with a bow accent at the waist.

Opting for the short sleeve version of the dress, which I much prefer, Kasia simply styled her look with nude Jimmy Choo ‘Lance’ sandals and a gold braided hairband.

Fresh faced makeup completed her look.

Is it me, or is Kaisa becoming the Polish version of Keira Knightley?

They look similar and they both have a Valentino obsession.

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.
