Who Wore Elie Saab Couture Better…Laetitia Casta or Nicole Kidman?

WWIB Elie Saab Couture

Serving as a jury member for the 2012 Venice Film Festival, Laetitia Casta had many great red carpet moments, including this peach tulle gold-embellished Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture dress, which she wore to the premiere for ‘The Master’.

Her breathtaking look was styled with the same matching heels we saw on the runway.

Five months later, we were surprised to see Nicole Kidman wearing the same dress to the 2013 G’Day USA Los Angeles Black Tie Gala.

Not only because we don’t expect someone of her calibre to wear a look already worn by another celebrity, but also because the look felt a bit twee on the statuesque beauty.

Laetitia wins for me, not only because I prefer her shoe choice and makeup, but also because the twee factor doesn’t apply here.

Laetitia Casta In Chanel Couture – ‘L’Homme Qui Rit’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Laetitia Casta hasn’t wowed many of you during the 2012 Venice Film Festival as both her Elie Saab Couture and Dolce & Gabbana dresses received mostly negative comments.

On Saturday evening she took to the red carpet for the ‘L’Homme Qui Rit’ Venice Film Festival premiere wearing a Chanel Fall 2012 Couture breath-taking pink gown.

From the floral appliqués, to the screen-siren hairdo, to the beautiful red lips and the stunning jewels, I’m totally blown away by this look.

Laetitia Casta In Elie Saab Couture – ‘The Master’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Laetitia Casta continued her jury member duties during the 2012 Venice Film Festival on Saturday evening for the premiere for ‘The Master’.

She looked drop dead gorgeous in an Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture dress; I’m excited that we finally have our first look from this stunning collection to hit the red carpet.

Her pretty peach tulle dress with an A-line skirt with gold embellishments was styled with open-toe t-bar sandals from the same collection, but I wish she’d worn the open-toe runway version.

The French beauty doesn’t wear much makeup, not that she needs it, but on this occasion she opted for a hot red lip colour with a blown out lock to complete her look.

Many of you hated her see-through Dolce & Gabbana look from the opening ceremony, so how does this look fare?

Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

As one of the jury members for the 2012 Venice Film Festival, Laetitia Casta took to the red carpet tonight for the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the Opening Ceremony this evening.

The French actress was of course wearing a Dolce & Gabbana gown. You could ID this signature gown from the moon.

Her black-lace sheer gown with tonal embellishments was allowed to dazzle due to the effortless styling, which included black platform heels, smoky eyes and a simple bun.

I know many of you are tired of this bra and panties baring formula which works so well for the brand, but how do you feel about this look on this occasion?

Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana – 2012 Venice Film Festival Jury Photocall

The 69th Venice Film Festival (‘Venezia 69’) Jury Photocall took place at the Palazzo del Casino this afternoon in Venice, Italy.

Laetitia Casta stole the limelight wearing a Dolce & Gabbana floral-print dress.

Since we have torrential rain here in London, I’m very much in the mood to appreciate this autumnal floral-print ruched dress with puff sleeves.

Thankfully, she kept things interesting with electric-blue Sergio Rossi ‘Chi Chi’ pumps.

Barely there makeup and tumbling waves completed the French beauty’s third look of this festival so far.

Laetitia Casta In Lanvin – Venice International Film Festival Dinner

French actress Laetitia Casta attended a pre-festival dinner hosted by Vogue Italia for the 69th Venice International Film Festival on Tuesday evening.

Laetitia, a jury member for the festival, wore a Lanvin dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

Her silk-organza elegant dress is a bit snug around the waist, but she looks beautiful nonetheless.

Louis Vuitton cap-toe pumps and purposely messy hair finish the look.

Laetitia Casta In Valentino – 69th Venice Film Festival

The 69th Venice Film Festival hasn’t even officially started, yet this is our third Valentino look to grace the festivities.

Laetitia Casta, who will be on the jury for the festival, was spotted arriving at her hotel wearing a Valentino Fall 2012 dress.

Her elegant Valentino look has embroidered roses down the front of her romantic, folk-inspired long-sleeve frock with pleated shoulders.

Opting to select white Gianvito Rossi pumps as styled on the runway, the French beauty completed her look with stylish oversized shades.
