Soo Joo Park In Iris van Herpen Couture – ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Venice Film Festival

We may equate the Venice Film Festival with classic representations of all-out glamour, but it’s not without its style-forward moments—the latest one provided courtesy of Soo Joo Park.

While at the ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ premiere, where she joined Rebecca Hall, the L’Oreal Paris global ambassador delved into the Iris van Herpen Spring 2017 Couture collection.

Reading—or dressing—between the lines, the platinum-haired model was a vision in this tessellated gown that was a technical marvel like all of the designer’s creations.

With such an intricate dress that sensuously echoed the curves of the feminine form, nary an accessory was required.

The Christian Louboutin heels were perfect; I might have left the timepiece at home.

Rebecca Hall In Monse – ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Rebecca Hall has already done much to impress while on the Venice Film Festival circuit, and that trend continues, as our BDOTW star hasn’t lost her shine at the ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’ premiere on Monday (September 4).

While some may see this Monse Fall 2017 dress and give it a nod and a pass, saying ‘next’, I loved the way in which she showcased the minimal yet powerful mood of the design.

From the seductive side slit, to her tassel Pierre Hardy ‘Majorelle’ sandals and crimped, pinned-back hair, this sophisticated outing wasn’t without its own measure of sultry flirtation.

Sure, it didn’t have the same dynamic boldness and immediately eye-catching drama as some of her other Venice looks, but there is something to be said for a more laid-back, timeless allure, too.

Matilda de Angelis In Fendi & Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini – ‘Una Famiglia’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Italian actress Matilda de Angelis was at the photocall and premiere for ‘Una Famiglia’ during the Venice Film Festival on Monday (September 4).

Photocall: In a look that combined a retro sensibility with ladylike-punk flair, Matilda wore this Fendi Resort 2018 ensemble that certainly stood out for its boldness of form and bright cotton-candy-pink hue. I can only assume the hair was purposefully mussed-up to echo the slightly rebellious femininity that was offered here—a world in which those Fendi platforms also fit the bill.

Premiere: If she was wearing a mood ring, it would have completely changed colours with her second look, a mint-green Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini gown that saw her floating in a softly romantic cloud of tulle. Mullet gowns aren’t always the most well-received, but this explosion of froth with its nearly impossible number of layers swept away the red carpet with hints of fancifulness. I might have opted for a metallic shoe as opposed to the black sandal, although they did provide an interesting counterpoint to her raven locks. Delfina Delettrez jewels completed the look.

Bee Shaffer In Valentino – The Franca Sozzani Award

Bee Shaffer was also among the long list of noted guests at the inaugural Franca Sozzani Award, held on Friday (September 1) during the Venice Film Festival.

Attending the event with her dapperly clad fiancé Francesco Carrozzini, Bee subscribed to a breezier, more casual aesthetic for the evening.

Naturally, she made very elegant the undeniable prairie-boho spirit of this Valentino Resort 2017 dress. Much of that more refined vibe came via her styling, what with her precious jewels and silver accessories.

But, I still couldn’t help wishing for a more dazzling gown to stand alongside that aubergine tux.

Kirsten Dunst In Rodarte – ‘Woodshock’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

No one should be surprised that Kirsten Dunst stars in Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s directorial debut for ‘Woodshock’.

The film, which has been guarded with secrecy so far, was presented at a photocall during Venice Film Festival this afternoon (September 4).

Kirsten was naturally in Rodarte, wearing a sheer top and trousers from the Spring 2018 collection.

The brands cool-girl credentials give way to enchanting florals within a look which exudes vintage and boho charm.

Since Cannes I have been fully on board with Kirsten’s bolder red carpet looks.

This might not be favoured by everyone, but give me this over a button-up granny frock any day.

I think she totally nailed the look.

Venice Film Festival Weekend Roundup

Here is a roundup of the stunning gowns which hit the Venice Film Festival carpet this weekend.

Giulia Bevilacqua: If you were in any doubt, Giulia did her best to let you know that she’s arrived at the festival, sweeping, almost literally, the red carpet in Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini. Beautiful woman. Equally beautiful gown, but I would’ve loved to have seen some earrings here.

Tina Kunakey In Armani Privé – ‘Suburbicon’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

It appears that feathers are all the rage on the red carpet during the 2017 Venice Film Festival.

Tina Kunakey, who I almost didn’t recoginse without her signature teased-to-the-heavens afro, is the latest star to work the trend.

While some have opted for feathers to enrich the hem of their gown, Tina went full ostrich with her Armani Privé open-back from styled with a reverse Tiffany & Co. necklace.

If you’ve having a very mid case of deja vu, that may be because Iggy Azalea rocked an Armani Privé Spring 2015 gown in a feathery sky-blue hue back in 2015.
