Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab Couture – ‘Night Moves’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab Couture - 'Night Moves' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Following the photocall, Dakota Fanning attended the ‘Night Moves’ Venice Film Festival premiere on Saturday evening, held at the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Italy.

The blonde actress gave us our first look at the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection off the runway.

Her beautiful navy sleeveless deep v-neck fully embellished ballgown styled with rings from Rona Pfeiffer and Cathy Waterman couldn’t be more fitting for the glamorous occasion – so it’s a shame that everything from the neck up feels like groundhog day.

Dakota Fanning In Alexander McQueen – ‘Night Moves’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Dakota Fanning In Alexander McQueen - 'Night Moves' Venice Film Festival Photocall

Dakota Fanning attended the ‘Night Moves’ Venice Film Festival photocall held at the Palazzo del Casino in Venice, Italy on Saturday afternoon.

The young actress wore a cream leather layered mini dress with whipstitch trims and embossed detailing accented with a leather belt.

There could have been a danger of this look washing her out, but she added a pair of brown Rupert Sanderson pumps and a copper lip colour to prevent this.

I had a feeling this edgy look would be worn by Chloe Sevigny or Anna Paquin, but Dakota makes it work.

Do you agree?

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

Menswear Roundup

Here is a quick roundup of menswear this week.

Nicolas Cage: The actor attended a photocall for his latest movie, ‘Joe’ during Venice Film Festival this afternoon wearing a Versace head-to-toe look. He donned one-button blue peak lapel Versace suit jacket with a white button-down Versace shirt with subtle gold medusa button detail at the neck. He completed his relaxed photocall look perfectly with black Versace pants.

Kevin Zegers: The actor joined Lily Collins in Mexico for the premiere of their latest movie, ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.’ He donned grey striped Tommy Hilfiger three-piece suit with a striped white shirt and black tie. I am not a fan of the fit of the suit, I wish it was more slim-fit. Christian Louboutin ‘New Platers’ flats and a Baum et Mercier timepiece completed his look.

Hugh Jackman: The Australian actor joined his two co-stars Tao Okamoto joined Rila Fukushima for ‘The Wolverine’ Tokyo premiere wearing a black suit with a white dress shirt. Sometimes simple and classic works best.

Moran Atias’ Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Looks

Moran Atias' Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Looks

Moran Atias has had a busy two days attending various events during Venice Film Festival, where she has mostly worn Dolce & Gabbana.

Arrival: She arrived in fine style wearing a Dolce & Gabbana baby-blue lace long-sleeved crew-neck dress, which she styled with a matching Dolce & Gabbana tote and, rather oddly, Dolce & Gabbana leopard-print ballet flats.

Uomo Vogue Cocktail Party: Opting for a warm-hued Alberta Ferretti brick-red felt sleeveless dress with embroidered details, she once again opted for flats, plus a black satin clutch. Better styling would’ve improved this look tremendously for me.

Terrazza Maserati:
For this event she finally donned heels, which instantly elevated her Dolce & Gabbana summery look consisting of a knit top and painterly floral skirt.

‘Gravity’ Premiere: Moran wore a dramatic black textured Dolce & Gabbana strapless frock with a rise-and-fall hemline and full skirt styled with black platform open-toe sandals, a fringed bag and opera gloves. I feel like the dress was dramatic enough without the gloves. In my opinion the only person who makes these gloves work on the red carpet is Dita von Teese.

Which look is your favourite?

For me it would’ve been the arrival look but the animal-print flats turned me off, so my choice is the summery Dolce & Gabbana look at Terrazza Maserati.

Natalia Borges In Fausto Puglisi – 2013 Venice Film Festival

Natalia Borges In Fausto Puglisi - 2013 Venice Film Festival

Natalia Borges, who is the current face of Garnier Fructis America, has so far given us two contrasting looks by the same designer while attending Venice Film Festival.

‘Gravity’ premiere: She was very much the blonde bombshell, wearing a two-tone yellow-and-lavender Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 dress which she styled with Christian Louboutin spiked accessories and a black leather belt with a ram’s-head gold buckle, the brand’s signature for this collection.

‘Tracks’ premiere: Last night she opted for something more fun and playful, wearing a leather sleeveless top with a half-plaid, half-patterned skater skirt with a black waistband, also from the Fausto Puglisi Fall 2013 collection, which was styled with a ruby-and-silver bibbed Shorouk necklace and sexy red-and-black strappy buckle Casadei for Puglisi sandals.

I like both looks, with my preference leaning heavily towards the first look. The second feels like it should’ve been on the red carpet at the VMAs last weekend, plus the hair is too prissy for such a edgy look.

Francesca Cavallin In Barbara Casasola – ‘Tracks’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Francesca Cavallin In Barbara Casasola - 'Tracks' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Francesca Cavallin glided down the red carpet yesterday evening for the ‘Tracks’ Venice Film Festival premiere held at the Palazzo del Cinema in Venice, Italy.

The Italian actress selected a two-tone Barbara Casasola Fall 2013 frock, with a lavender front featuring a sheer organza insert and neckline, and a dramatic deep-aubergine back which she complemented with a matching lip colour.

While I like her hair up with this look, the style itself feels a tad matronly.

The look was completed with a Stark black clutch accented with gold hardware.

BDOTW worthy?
