Moran Atias In Emilio Pucci – ‘The Humbling’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Moran Atias In Emilio Pucci -  ‘The Humbling’ Venice Film Festival Premiere
Moran Atias was back on the 2014 Venice Film Festival red carpet for ‘The Humbling’ premiere on Saturday (August 30) in Venice, Italy.

After her captivating sky-blue gown for the opening ceremony, the actress and Orizzonti jury member stunned in a blush-nude Emilio Pucci Fall 2014 halter gown with a backless silhouette.

Gliding over her curves, the languid lines of the satiny dress were likewise brought to life by a shiny gold Kotur clutch alongside amethyst-hued statement earrings and cocktail ring.

A sleek bun and warm, desert-toned makeup polished off the elegant-sultry effect.

Catherine Deneuve In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture – ‘3 Coeurs’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Catherine Deneuve In Jean Paul Gaultier Couture - '3 Coeurs' Venice Film Festival Premiere

After the photo call, Catherine Deneuve was back in red-carpet stride for the ‘3 Coeurs’ premiere at the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Saturday (August 30).

For the occasion, the French actress wore a French designer, donning a Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2014 Couture dress. She accessorized with a sparkling black Fendi clutch, Pomellato jewels and black embellished sandals.

I wanted to like this moment, if only for the magical, electric blue colour of the gown. Sadly, the trellis-like black embroidery that traced down the centre of the gown into a tulle-accented hem only served as a distraction.

That said, it was the quarterback shoulders that really turned me off this look.

Chiara Mastroianni In Christian Dior – ‘3 Coeurs’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Chiara Mastroianni attended the ‘3 Coeurs’ premiere, joining her mother Catherine Deneuve at the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Saturday (August 30).

Skipping a gown in favour of a shorter frock, the French-Italian star selected a Christian Dior Resort 2015 forest-green number with sheer, tapestry-inspired lace embroidery.

The dress riffed on the house of Dior’s tradition of scarves, what with the asymmetric patchwork placement of the delicate squares.

Perhaps if designed into a full gown, the frock would have embodied the drama I was missing here.

Charlotte Gainsbourg In Anthony Vaccarello – ‘3 Coeurs’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Charlotte Gainsbourg attended the ‘3 Coeurs’ photo call during the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Saturday (August 30) in Venice, Italy.

Surprisingly, the Anglo-French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg skipped a Louis Vuitton look in favour of an edgy Anthony Vaccarello Fall 2014 black leather mini-skirt with an asymmetric, spliced-to-there hem—one of the designer’s recognizable strong-sexy signatures.

Always carrying with her a seemingly effortless approach to style, she paired the leggy design with a roomy black sweater and put even less fuss towards her makeup-free face and barely-fixed hair.

I would have worn a shoe, sans ankle strap, to maximize leg line.

Still, this look had all the chic and ever-so-slightly rebellious spirit á la Charlotte that we’ve come to expect.

Catherine Deneuve In Prada – ‘3 Coeurs’ Venice Film Festival Photocall

Catherine Deneuve In Prada - '3 Coeurs' Venice Film Festival Photocall2
Catherine Deneuve attended the photo call for her film, ‘3 Coeurs,’ as part of the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Saturday (August 30).

The screen icon left no pattern unturned in a Prada Resort 2015 dress that featured an intricately decorative and brightly hued floral print.

Having been stripped of many of its original runway bells and whistles, including the label’s signature embellishment and eclectic styling, the frock had a more sophisticated and less quirky, but also less interesting, edge.

Jade-green earrings and black Saint Laurent ‘Tribtoo’ platform sandals completed the look.

Another more delicate and less imposing shoe might have made all the difference, here, as this pair was far too heavy—and frankly rather twee—for all that print.

Zhao Wei In Vivienne Westwood – ‘Dearest’ Venice Film Festival Premiere

Zhao Wei In Vivienne Westwood - 'Dearest' Venice Film Festival Premiere

Zhao Wei made a grand entrance at the premiere of ‘Dearest’ at the 2014 Venice Film Festival on Thursday (August 28) in Venice, Italy.

Taking to the red carpet with a statement-making swoosh, the Asian star selected a voluminous gown from the Vivienne Westwood Fall 2014 Capsule Collection paired with Christian Louboutin heels.

The bustling design suffered no shortage of drama—or fabric; its light lemon-meringue hue punctuated by a white ribbon sash and a black panel at the bottom.

A Judith Leiber magic 8-ball clutch tied the colours together with a cheeky edge, while Damiani jewels, including a sparkling pair of diamond earrings, topped off the look.

‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7 – #8′ Venice Film Festival Premiere

'Miu Miu Women's Tales #7 - #8' - Premiere - 71st Venice Film Festival

A collection of six starlets were at the ‘Miu Miu Women’s Tales #7-#8’ premiere, held during the 2014 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28). Naturally, all were representing the label, donning a range of Miu Miu looks that couldn’t have each been more different if they tried.

Dakota Fanning: The trendsetting starlet wore a Miu Miu creamy white satin sheath dress with beaded embellishment, paired with nude platform Miu Miu pumps and a bejeweled grass-green Miu Miu clutch. I would have loved to see the same punch of colour in her shoe, along with an updo.

Kirsten Dunst: The actress went for a retro spin in an A-line Miu Miu dress featuring a funky blue and white swirl print. She accessorized with pops of silver via her clutch and sandals, not to mention the flash of those side-swept platinum locks.

Kate Mara: Donning the same nude platforms as Dakota, Kate wore hers with a nude Miu Miu dress with allover paillettes and a sparkling, decorative neckline. The design was pretty and carried with it a vintage flair, but the colour washed out her complexion, especially with her neutral makeup.

Felicity Jones: Her embellished, midnight-blue Miu Miu dress with sheer sleeves had the fall season written all over it. Black pointy pumps did nothing to lighten the look, but the actress did take a more summery, breezy approach to her barely-there makeup.

Lena Dunham: Once again opting for a head-scratcher of a look, the ‘Girls’ star didn’t exactly stand out for the right reasons in her sombre, daresay frumpy, patterned frock. The Prada dress and the flat, block-heel sandals aged her far beyond my liking—as did her beehive ’do.

Nicoletta Romanoff: The only one to really embrace what’s left of summer, Nicoletta was the most polished of the bunch in her flirty and youthful white ruffle blouse and lemon-yellow skirt by Miu Miu, paired with breezy waves and sun-kissed makeup. If I were to nitpick, I would have selected a colourful, fun sandal not this chunkier brown pair.

Alessandra Ambrosio In Alberta Ferretti – ‘La Rancon De La Gloire’ Premiere

Alessandra Ambrosio In Alberta Ferretti - 'La Rancon De La Gloire' Premiere

Alessandra Ambrosio took to the red carpet at the 2014 Venice Film Festival for the ‘La Rancon De La Gloire’ premiere in Venice, Italy on Thursday (August 28).

The supermodel strutted out a cherry-hued Alberta Ferretti high-low gown that carried with it some element of laidback grace, elevated by a sparkling Chopard collar necklace.

The Brazilian stunner can work any ensemble to her advantage, but this one didn’t necessarily lend many favours with its folded, flattened bodice.

The rich colour had me at hello; but I could have easily said goodbye to the silhouette, fabrication and those Salvatore Ferragamo black pumps.
