Cristiana-Capotondi-In-Valentino-The-Zero-Theorem-Venice-Film-Festival-Premiere2

Cristiana Capotondi attended ‘The Zero Theorem’ Venice Film Festival premiere held at the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Italy yesterday evening.

The Italian actress wore a Valentino Resort 2014 strapless multi-macramé bouquet strapless gown – there couldn’t have been a more perfect way to inject some vitality onto this red carpet.

Her scene-stealing gown was simply styled with a selection of silver bracelets and neutral makeup to complement the earthy vibe of her gown.

Catalina Sandino Moreno In Emilio Pucci - 'Medeas' Venice Film Festival Photocall

Catalina Sandino Moreno attended the ‘Medeas’ photocall during the 2013 Venice Film Festival held at the Palazzo del Casino in Venice, Italy yesterday afternoon.

The Colombian actress looked beautiful wearing a green Emilio Pucci Resort 2014 long-sleeved silk-cady dress with a plunging neckline, a gold accent at the waist, and a slit in the skirt showcasing her Just Fab gold-and-nude ankle-strap sandals.

I love the colour against her olive skin tone and chestnut-hued wavy tresses. This look may be considered too sexy for a photocall, but something is desperately needed to shake this festival alive because I am already over this festival and looking forward to Toronto Film Festival which starts at the end of this week.

Venice Film Festival Weekend Round Up

Here is a quick roundup of some of the other looks which graced the red carpet during the 2013 Venice Film Festival this weekend.

Vanessa Hessler: The actress attended the ‘Premio Kineo’ red carpet event wearing a Zuhair Murad nude and black-netted gown which should be familiar to you. That’s because Lily Collins wore the shorter version of this dress last week during her promo tour. The dramatic piece was simply styled with complementary black accessories.

Anna Safroncik: The Ukrainian actress shimmered in an ocean-blue Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 chiffon-and-lamé gown, with an illusion panel which doesn’t create much of an illusion around the neckline ruining the overall effect.

Maria Roveran: The actress could’ve worn just the LBD from Moga e Mago’s Fall 2013 collection but she saw the designers’ vision through by wearing the gold-studded leather sleeves, which she completed with a futuristic Kzeniya gold clutch.

Sophie Kennedy Clark: The Scottish actress gave this striped Stella McCartney jumpsuit its third red carpet outing following Jennifer Lawrence and Rila Fukushima. As this is her second Stella McCartney look of this festival, it appears she has a good relationship with the brand to have had a wide range of looks to select from, so with that in mind I’m a bit disappointed to see this look for a third time. On the plus side, she wore it better than Jennifer Lawrence with her styling. But Rila is still my overall favourite in this look, putting the ‘F’ into fierce.

Miu Miu Women's Tales Talks - The 70th Venice International Film Festival

Michelle Dockery and Freida Pinto attended the Miu Miu Women’s Tales Talks photocall held at Excelsior Hotel on Saturday in Venice, Italy – with both ladies wearing Miu Miu, naturally.

Michelle Dockery: The ‘Downton Abbey’ actress wore a sombre navy sheer top and a black floaty skirt with black-patent pumps, which for me is not getting into the festival spirit especially when we are nearing the end of summer. Even with the red pout, I am totally bored by this look. She could’ve lifted it with some interesting jewels or a statement necklace, but no.

Freida Pinto: After failing to excite at the premiere last week, Freida was back to her best, looking lovely wearing a summery Miu Miu white-and-pink tie-dye sleeveless shirtdress styled with nude pumps with an embellished heel and a shimmering taupe lip colour. While this is much improved, I’m sad that we didn’t get a more glamorous moment from Freida at this festival.

Gia Coppola's Weekend At Venice Film Festival

Gia Coppola took to the red carpet several times over the weekend attending events during the 2013 Venice Film Festival.

Art of Elysium’s ‘Child of God’ and ‘Palo Alto’ event: On Saturday the writer-director kick-started proceedings wearing an off-the-shoulder Christopher Kane Fall 2013 black velvet loop-tape dress featuring a nude lining we didn’t see on the runway. Black sandals and a black clutch with gold hardware completed her look.

‘Palo Alto’ photocall: The following day Gia opted for a head-to-toe Proenza Schouler look, selecting a black-and-white zigzag tweed dress with a small keyhole detail paired with black python pumps, both from the Resort 2014 collection. While the first look was sexy, this one has a youthful vibe. It’s interesting how she’s opted for two edgy designers, yet selected easy-to-wear pieces.

‘Palo Alto’ premiere: For the premiere on Sunday evening Gia couldn’t have looked more like her aunt Sofia, wearing a classic suit by Saint Laurent styled with a white blouse and black bow tie, keeping the makeup fresh and neutral for her borrowed-from-the-boys look.

Vanity Fair 10th Anniversary Celebrations: For her after-dark look, Gia wore a sexy Zac Posen strapless frock with a below-the-knee trumpet hemline and geometric folded detail at the bodice. Still opting for makeup in a neutral colour palette, she once again opted for black accessories, this time wearing black sandals and a satin clutch. You may remember that Naya Rivera wore this same dress back in April.

Of all these looks, the Saint Laurent is my favourite. I feel like this is more her style. The Zac Posen was my second favourite for pure sex appeal – something Zac Posen is a master at.
