Eva Riccobono In Armani Privé – 70th Venice International Film Festival Photocall

Eva Riccobono In Armani Privé - 70th Venice International Film Festival Photocall

The 70th annual Venice Film Festival starts today and this year’s mistress of ceremonies is the beautiful model Eva Riccobono.

She has some big shoes to fill following Kasia Smutniak, who took our breath away with look after look last year.

Eva started off her campaign by partaking in a photocall on the beach outside the Hotel Excelsior in Venice, Italy yesterday, giving us our first look at the Armani Privé Fall 2013 collection off the runway.
She glided down the beach wearing an enchanting silk-organza-and-lace spaghetti-strap nude gown with floral embroidery. A stunning princess gown if ever I saw one.

The opening ceremony will take place this evening with the premiere of ‘Gravity’, with Sandra Bullock, George Clooney and possibly a yet to be name cocktail waitress in attendance.

    Beautiful dress, gorgeous model/actress ..bad hairstyle and makeup.

    Love this dress-so romantic and ethereal, I think the backdrop enhances the dreamy vibe. And while she is a beautiful woman, I do think this washes her out quite a bit. But I do think she could have made it successful with better hair and makeup.

    ahahahaha you just killed me with that Clooney joke.
    now the dress…..yall know how I feel about paleness against paleness. It works on the model because of her darker hair. Eva is basically invisible.

    I have no complaints. This is gorgeous, delicate, ethereal, and I like the breezy effortless vibe she exudes standing on the beach, wouldn’t wanna see any more ‘serious’ updo/jewels styling.

    Beautiful dress, but I agree that this is not the setting for it. Her hair is way too casual and I miss the necklace too.

      I know! FC, you’re so bad! 🙂

    The gown looks so delicate and beautiful on the model. On Eva it just washes her out. Her hair should’ve been up and I’m missing the necklace.

    is it just me or is this so sheer we can see she’s not wearing a bra? (the gown is lovely though)

      Yes, one can totally see her nipple, I don´t know what others may think but that does not looks classy or elegant at all.

  9. Ana August 28, 2013 at 12:44 pm #

    I miss the necklace.

    not even close to Kasia Smutniak

    The gown is beautiful, but I don’t like it on her, I think it would look better on a brunette. Plus, a dress like this on the beach… for some reason something more simpler would have been better. I’m so looking forward to see beautiful outfits!

    Woah am i missing something here? Is it normal to wear gowns to a photocall during the VFF? Its a gorgeous gown however it would have been improved if her hair was back.

      Right??? That festival must be incredible because this is the second year I’ve seen someone wear a ballgown to a mere photocall. Anyway, I would have liked the dress in a different color, as this is too close to her skin tone. And hair up or back, but definitely off the shoulders.

    She wore that dress on the beach? On sand? Near water?

    i adore this dress, I think she looks perfect and am glad she didn’t wear the necklace.

    Aaaand.. IT’S ON!

    I love this gown on the runway. So ethereal and glamorous at the same time.
    I think Eva should have worn her hair differently. Also, I can’t help feeling sad that this dress wasn’t worn on the red carpet (AND it got wet 🙁 )

    The dress is gorgeous and is suits her well, but I would prefer if she had lifted her hair up. Also, the make-up could have been stronger since the dress is so pale.

    I love Eva, she’s now an actress too (starred in a dozen of italian movies). Good start.

  17. Charlotte August 28, 2013 at 10:50 am #

    I don’t like this dress on her. The color of the dress is too pale for her skin tone, and the make up and the hair are not helping !

    • dee August 28, 2013 at 3:56 pm #

      I agree. The dress is beautiful but washes her out.
