Kasia Smutniak In Armani Privé – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Girl of the moment Kasai Smutniak attended the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ at the opening ceremony of the Venice Film Festival yesterday evening.

Kasia went simple for the occasion, wearing a sleek red long-sleeved Armani Privé gown.

Covered from the front, Kasia flashed a hint of skin via a low reverse V-neck, which shows off her sleek chignon – as well as her small neck tattoo.

The Polish actress opted to go clutchless, accessorizing with small studs and a large cocktail ring.

You may have a touch of déjà vu when it comes to this look. That’s because Uma Thurman wore a slightly modified version of this gown to the Cannes Film Festival closing ceremony back in May 2011.

Are you a fan of this simple look, or were you wishing for a bit more excitement?

Daniela Virgilio Fendi – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Daniela Virgilio attended the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which was also part of the 69th Venice Film Festival opening ceremony on Tuesday evening.

The Italian actress wore a unique gown for the event, standing out amidst a sea of goddess gowns.

The silver-embroidered Fendi dress, covered in light-blue floral embroidery, features an unexpected netted neckline and bow detailing.

I bet Michelle Williams is kicking herself for missing this dress for herself.

A blunt bob, strappy Fendi sandals, smoky eyes and black Fendi clutch, which feel a tad too heavy, complete the look.

Laetitia Casta In Dolce & Gabbana – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

As one of the jury members for the 2012 Venice Film Festival, Laetitia Casta took to the red carpet tonight for the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the Opening Ceremony this evening.

The French actress was of course wearing a Dolce & Gabbana gown. You could ID this signature gown from the moon.

Her black-lace sheer gown with tonal embellishments was allowed to dazzle due to the effortless styling, which included black platform heels, smoky eyes and a simple bun.

I know many of you are tired of this bra and panties baring formula which works so well for the brand, but how do you feel about this look on this occasion?

Violante Placido In Alberta Ferretti – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Violante Placido also took to the red carpet tonight for the 2012 Venice Film Festival premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the Opening Ceremony this evening.

The Italian actress wore a fiery Alberta Ferretti strapless red gown with a sweetheart neckline.

I love everything about this look, especially the red accessories, but I can’t get on board with the hair on this occasion.

Not being a fan of ombre hair I wish she had styled her hair in a more sophisticated manner to complement the gown.

Naomi Watts In Marchesa – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Venice Film Festival Premiere & Opening Ceremony

Naomi Watts and her partner Liev Schreiber (in Ermenegildo Zegna) joined Kate Hudson on the red carpet during the 2012 Venice Film Festival for the premiere of ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, which also served as the Opening Ceremony this evening.

Like Kate, I’m not surprised at Naomi’s choice of designer as Naomi, film festivals and Marchesa seem to go hand in hand.

On this occasion she wore a nude lace overlay gown featuring a bateau neckline, ruffle sleeves, a layered skirt, and a low V-back with tonal ruffle accent from the Resort 2013 collection.

The colour is divine as is her choice of accessories which included a Lanvin two-tone light blue & mustard lacquered ‘Red Passion’ minaudiere, nude peep-toes and gold statement jewels.

Naomi opted for a rich red lip colour instead of nude, which may have been one nude step too far.

The only thing I would change about this look is Naomi’s posture. Such a stunning gown needs more poise.
