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

After the ‘Woodshock’ photocall at the Venice Film Festival, Kirsten Dunst was back on the red carpet on Monday evening (September 4) for premiere.

As the film marks Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy’s directorial debut, Kirsten naturally kept her Rodarte streak going in this Spring 2018 gown.

While I loved the boho florals of her photocall look, I was fully mesmerized by this second outing that brought the label’s unique brand of fairy-tale charms into play.

Frothy yet structured, with the cascade of tiers down the skirt, this polka-dot dress was the ultimate sartorial confection—topped off with a figure-enhancing floral bouquet applique at the waist.

Accessorised with a deep red lip for a bold contrast along with Irene Neuwirth jewels, the look was whimsically measured and equally captivating—despite its pale colour palette—while staying true to Kirsten’s unique style.

Would you agree?

Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Roundup

More stars took to the red carpet on Monday (September 4), as the Venice Film Festival marched on.

Levante: This embellished Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 gown was originally shown with a full lining, leaving many of you—and myself included—likely to wonder why Levante opted to go sheer instead at the ‘Una Famiglia’ premiere.

Micaela Ramazzotti: The magpie-attracting embellishment of Prada was not lost on this glittery look that Micaela wore at the ‘Una Famiglia’ premiere, but she did lose me at the unnecessary cuff and the gigantic platform shoes.

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.
