2010 Venice Film Festival “Machete” Photocall – Jessica Alba In Dolce & Gabbana

This afternoon Jessica Alba joined director Robert Rodriguez and actor Danny Trejo for the “Machete” photocall during the 2010 Venice Film Festival at the Palazzo del Casino.

After not totally falling in love with her previous look, I’m head over heels in love with her Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2010 dress.

The long sleeve floral dress is perfect for photocall.

Not too dressy, yet not too boring.

As much as I love the dress, I adore those Michael Kors buckled gladiator heels. The contrast is so sexy.

Sleek straight hair and a collection of gold bangles complete her look.

    I don’t like the dress at all, so not really enjoying Jessica in it. My, she does love chunky shoes.

    I can’t believe people hate this so much! I think this is one of my favorite new Jessica outfits so far! I love it!

        I loved it! I don’t get how people don’t like this!

    definitely BDOTW worthy for me………..and i am sooo loving her hair!

    Oh my God! Those shoes are super ugly.. they ruin the look

  5. Marvel September 1, 2010 at 9:59 pm #

    I like the dress but wish she would have raised the hemline to make it less mumsy. NOT a fan of the heels at all

  6. Ev September 1, 2010 at 7:51 pm #

    I like the dress but I don’t like the print. It looks cheap. Her heels make for a good contrast but they look like two casts that doctors put on broken ankles.

    It’s a beautiful dress, and mixing girly and edgy is my look too!

    She’s standing in an awkward position, look at her hips and legs, and the photo was taken from below so I think that’s why the dress looks “off”. If she were standing straight and the photo was taken higher up then I think we could all appreciate how stunning it is.

    Oh man, I’m kind of disappointed that nobody seems to like this. I love it, I love the somewhat refined length, and them bam! those fantastic (Michael Kors fall 2010, I think ;)) heels. I completely disagree with anybody who wishes for the dress to have been shortened…this wouldn’t have been nearly so stand-out for me if the dress has been modified to a cutesy length. I’ll be looking at these pictures for a while I’m sure.

    • Fashion Critic September 1, 2010 at 6:27 pm #

      I feel the same way.

      I think she looks good

  9. pipsqueak September 1, 2010 at 5:41 pm #

    The dress could’ve been shorter. But all in all, I like the look. Machete seems like a bad movie with a cult following – typical Robert Rodriguez stuff.

  10. Caroline September 1, 2010 at 5:08 pm #

    I love it! Definitely BDOTW contender for me!

  11. Amber September 1, 2010 at 5:08 pm #

    The dress needs to be shorter. And i don’t like the shoes with it.

  12. Lara September 1, 2010 at 4:53 pm #

    Who is her stylist?
    I really like most of her outfits this year. Not this one through

  13. june September 1, 2010 at 3:37 pm #

    unfortunately i think those heels are ugly as sin. they’re so clunky ):

  14. Shruti September 1, 2010 at 3:36 pm #

    The shoes are too heavy for this look. Dunno if they’re just ugly in general as they might work with an edgier outfit but here they look like they’re from a prison inmate collection. Her shoe choices have been unfortunate for her last three or so appearances. Not too crazy about the dress either and don’t think it fits her right with the way it’s stretching under her raised arm. However, lighter heels might’ve made the look semi-decent.

  15. Kim September 1, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

    I don’t like the dress and dislike the shoes even more for that outfit.

  16. Paige September 1, 2010 at 3:31 pm #

    I like the contrast of the dress and heels, this is almost perfect editorial type styling for me but I agree with dee that this looks seems to be wearing Jessica, it is so close yet so far for me, I don’t think she has the attitude or look required to pull it off.

  17. susan September 1, 2010 at 3:28 pm #

    I like the dress on the model. It does seem like it was altered for Alba – shortened waist maybe? I think if it hit her on the waist instead of above it, she had her hair pulled back and she wore flats or sandals with a small heel – it would have looked tons better.

    • Ally September 1, 2010 at 4:18 pm #

      Everything you said. It does seem to have been modified at the top and the skirt should have been shortened for her. The hemline hits her in an odd place.

  18. mikeijames September 1, 2010 at 3:12 pm #

    those shoes are SO serious but she should’ve had the hemline raised on this dress….

    • mol September 1, 2010 at 5:11 pm #

      Yes, that’s the big problem for me – the dress is too long, otherwise, I like what she was going for (and boo to all photographers who shoot you from below)

  19. nicky September 1, 2010 at 3:09 pm #

    the shoes really ruin the look for me…way too heavy and bulky looking. i do like her straight hair though

  20. Moxie September 1, 2010 at 3:08 pm #

    The dress looks like something an older woman would wear to church. The shoes are the only thing young or edgy about the look and they don’t go with the dress.

    • frknielsen September 1, 2010 at 3:49 pm #

      I agree, it looks like something my grandmother would wear – it looks better on the model though because she is taller. Hate the shoes

  21. Lee Ann September 1, 2010 at 2:59 pm #

    I lm ok with the dress mostly because of the colour but do not like the shoes with the dress-she looks like the Terminator from the knees down.

  22. Dorian Gray September 1, 2010 at 2:55 pm #

    Dear FC could you please post Isabella Ragonese in Moschino Cheap and Chic. She’s so talented. Thanks

    • Fashion Critic September 1, 2010 at 3:32 pm #

      sorry, but I’m not going to be able to feature her sorry

  23. M.B September 1, 2010 at 2:52 pm #

    I also feel like the dress is not for her! She’s too small to pull it off… The styling is not that bad though but I don’t like the straight hair: plain boring.

  24. dee September 1, 2010 at 2:47 pm #

    The dress seems to be wearing her. Jessica rarely gets it right on the red carpet. I think she needs to try not to look so trendy and simplify her look. She overdoes it a lot.

    • justme September 1, 2010 at 3:34 pm #

      Ia. I see what she’s trying to do but the result rarely impresses me.

  25. Z Fashion Blog September 1, 2010 at 2:46 pm #

    I simply adore this dress.
    It’s one of my all-time favourite Dolce & Gabbana pieces.

    Perfect look!

  26. Ju September 1, 2010 at 2:41 pm #

    I loved the dress, but I think those heels are too heavy for it

  27. ullis September 1, 2010 at 2:40 pm #

    WOW! Edgy but still chic! And I agree, its the contrast which makes the look. With normal black heels the dress would indeed look a bit mumsy, but not with sexy heels like these.

    I cant get over how adorable her face is! Id kill for that smile!

  28. Beatrice September 1, 2010 at 2:35 pm #

    This dress isn’t for her! And the shoes are really horrible!!

  29. Gaber September 1, 2010 at 2:29 pm #

    First of all, the dress is bad. Way to long, the waist is to high plus the print is doing her boobs absolutely no favours.
    And then second of all, taking a picture of her from below just makes everything worse.

    That’s one unflattering mess.

    • Alina September 1, 2010 at 6:03 pm #

      I agree with everything you said.

      Plus she tries so hard…

      • healy September 2, 2010 at 4:09 am #

        definitely I agree. . She’s like a nanny with her dress hahahha There’s no sign of Dulce tsk3

  30. wonderwool September 1, 2010 at 2:24 pm #

    I HATE IT! She looks mumsy but I’ve never been a fan of hers!
