Red Carpet Fashion Awards

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.

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.

Zhang Ziyi In Alberta Ferretti - 'My Lucky Star' Press Conference

Following her stateside promotion of her latest movie, ‘The Grandmaster’, Zhang Ziyi was back home where she attended a press conference for her next project, ‘My Lucky Star’, in Beijing, China.

She wore a mix of pieces which included an embellished sheer long-sleeved top from the Alberta Ferretti Fall 2013 collection worn with a black bra and black-and-white polka-dot skirt.

I love the playful skirt, which adds an informal touch to her look – as do those bunny ears.

Giuseppe Zanotti star-detail suede cage booties with gold hardware added some sex appeal to the look, balancing out its saccharine nature.

You can buy Zhang’s Giuseppe Zanotti star-detail suede cage booties from

Ksenia Rappoport In Alberta Ferretti - Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony & 'Gravity' Premiere

Ksenia Rappoport attended the 70th Venice Film Festival’s opening ceremony and premiere of ‘Gravity’ at Terrazza Maserati yesterday in Italy.

The Russian actress, who is a member of the international Jury of the “Orizzonti” section, glided through the proceedings in a blue Mikado silk strapless gown with full skirt.

The simple, elegant silhouette and the royal colour of the dress lent a regal quality to this look, which was polished off with a sparkling strand of diamonds and a statement cocktail ring.

Clotilde Courau In Alberta Ferretti - Venice Film Festival Opening Ceremony & 'Gravity' Premiere

Clotilde Courau was also at the 70th Venice Film Festival’s opening ceremony and ‘Gravity’ premiere, hosted at the Palazzo del Cinema in Italy on Wednesday.

The French actress wore an Alberta Ferretti white crepe jacket with a black velvet bow and scalloped high-low hem, which was paired with a black, siren Mikado silk skirt.

Classically buttoned-up and conservative, the ensemble’s impeccably structured tailoring and monochromatic colour story did create a sense of drama.

A wispy, loose updo and warm, earth-toned makeup also cut through some of the sartorial severity.
