Carolina Crescentini In Valentino – ‘L’Industriale’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

I hadn’t been that excited about any of the gowns we’d seen so far at the 2011 Rome Film Festival.

That all changed when Carolina Crescentini stepped onto the red carpet for the ‘L’Industriale’ premiere yesterday evening.

She looked graceful as she glided down the red carpet wearing a Valentino Resort 2012 gown.

Her mint-green gown with floral appliqués was accented with a ribbon tied to the waist.

I love her classy updo and her beaded clutch which perfectly complements her gown.

Carolina injected some much-needed old Hollywood glamour into this event.

This is my first contender for BDOTW.

Nikki Reed In Maria Lucia Hohan – ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ Rome Film Festival Premiere

This is Nikki Reed’s fifth appearance on the red carpet promoting ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1’ since Friday.

On Sunday night she walked the red carpet at the 2011 Rome Film Festival looking heavenly wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan gown.

Her white pleated gown with a plunging neckline and open back was teamed with gold jewels and metallic platforms.

A simple bun and bronze lippie completed her look.

I was going to say how much I loved this gown, but then I saw the back and was left totally disappointed.

The exposed zipper on the flesh colour panel on the back is really ugly.

I remember during the 2009 Emmy Awards we were all set to give Olivia Wilde ‘best dressed’ in her Marchesa gown – until we saw the exposed zipper at the back.

Surely there must be a better way to avoid this. A thinner clear zip, a side zip, clear buttons – anything but this.

Nikki Reed’s ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ European Promo Tour

Nikki Reed was in Madrid, Spain on Friday to promote ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1′ with co-star Jackson Rathbone.

Ashley Greene has been opting for sombre navy looks, but Nikki kick started her campaign wearing an orange Michael Kors boucle shift dress with a stitched detail around the neckline.

She finally broke the ‘Atwood/Rossi’ Twilight shoe run, by opting for taupe Camilla Skovgaard sandals with her bright orange sleeveless dress.

Loose waves and glossy lips finished the chic look.

For the Madrid premiere she opted to wear a green Topshop polka dot long sleeve dress with a keyhole detail.

Her fitted dress was styled with yet another pair of edgy Camilla Skovgaard cut-out leather platform sandals, this time in black.

Earlier today she switched up her hairstyle for sleeker, straight locks when she donned a sassy LBD for the photocall during the 2011 Rome Film Festival.

Her Alice by Temperley dress with an embellished neckline was teamed with black Casadei peep-toe ankle boots.

Nikki’s good shoe run came to an abrupt end at the Lancia Cafe in the Auditorium Parco Della Musica after the photocall.

She unfortunately wore the same black ankle boots with her fuchsia pink Jenni Kayne overlap dress from the Fall 2011 collection.

I’m not sure what possessed her to weigh down her vibrant, pretty dress with black ankle boots, but I hope this is a temporary blip as this is my favourite dress so far.

Which is your favourite?

Maggie Gyllenhaal In Dries Van Noten – ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival Photocall

Maggie Gyllenhaal attended the ‘Hysteria’ Rome Film Festival photocall this afternoon.

The actress gives us our first red carpet look at the Dries van Noten Spring 2012 collection.

This isn’t a surprise as the actress is a huge fan of the brand and is often the one to snag the first look.

Her loose-fitted waterprint dress with one draped sleeve excited me more on the model as I prefer the strappy sandals, but this is a perfect laidback look for a photocall.

Brown wooden wedges, a simple bun, rosy cheeks and red lips completed her look.

I’m very excited to see what Maggie wears to the premiere later this evening.

I adore Rupert Everett’s Moncler reindeer cardigan, as it would make the perfect Christmas gift for my younger brother.

His cardigan is available from Matches Fashion.

Michelle Yeoh In Valentino & Salvatore Ferragamo – ‘The Lady’ Rome Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

Michelle Yeoh is in Italy for the 2011 Rome Film Festival.

She attended the premiere for ‘The Lady’ wearing a Valentino Resort 2012 gown.

Her soft grey gown has a beautiful embroidered bodice with the same detail stripped on her skirt.

Whilst her green bangles and green watch complement the green stones in her earrings, they bring down the look for me.

A wavy side-swept bun and a croc clutch completed her look.

Luisa Raneri In Atelier Versace – ‘The Lady’ Rome Film Festival Premiere

Luisa Raneri attended the 2011 Rome Film Festival premiere for ‘The Lady’ yesterday evening.

The gorgeous Italian actress and Master Of Ceremonies for the festival wore an Atelier Versace gown.

It’s always a pleasure to see an Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet and this is no exception.

The one-shoulder silk-chiffon gown has a dramatic multiple-layered skirt and a bow detail on the bodice.

Luisa added two diamond-encrusted bracelets and studded earrings to her look.

I would’ve preferred a chic chignon, but she styled her hair into a high ponytail.

Penelope Cruz In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘Venuto al Mondo’ Rome Film Festival Photocall

Penelope Cruz attended the ‘Venuto al Mondo’ photocall which kick started the 6th International Rome Film Festival today.

The Spanish beauty is playing men at their own game by wearing a very smart Dolce & Gabbana black suit with a white shirt.

Her single-breasted Martini fit jacket has two buttons, a satin notched lapel and three front pockets.

She didn’t attempt to make this androgynous chic look girlie in anyway. Even her shoes are very plain.

I love this look as the totally owns it.

My problem is her hair. I wish she would return back to her natural hair colour.
