The Franca Sozzani Award

Many more celebrities paid tribute to Franca Sozzani at a ceremony held on a windy night during Venice Film Festival, from which Julianne Moore collected an award.

Karolina Kurkova: While I adore the model when she presents a more fashion forward aesthetic, this Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini pretty pink ruffle gown is as romantic as it is heavenly.

Isabeli Fontana: The model has proved to be quite the muse for Alberta Ferretti, wearing her 4th frock of this festival. While the elements weren’t too kind to her split front magenta gown, she carried herself with great dignity. I’m drawn to both the colour and construction of this stunning gown.

Valeria Bilello: I love how this Gucci velvet bow dress captures the romanticism and retro-inspired femininity that Alessandro Michele has become known for.

Vittoria Puccini: Sheer dresses don’t always go down too well, yet it’s the delicacy of this Valentino gown that makes it so appealing.

Carly Steel: The Entertainment Tonight correspondent wore a beautiful beaded burgundy ball gown by Jovani styled with a Buglari clutch.

Eva Riccobono: There are so many interesting elements here, like the random red patches on the skirt and the gladiator sandals. But the skirt is so sheer that she might as well have not worn it at all.

Roberta Ruiu: Considering the bad weather, Roberta was probably the most well equipped to deal with the elements in her military-inspired Fausto Puglisi cape and over-the-knee boots combo. This is such a powerful look, and I’m not just referring to the bold print.

Donatella Versace: The designer wore a feather festooned gown which possessed all the beauty and glamour we expect from any Atelier Versace look.

Nicoletta Romanoff: This Ermanno Scervino red lace patchwork dress featuring pleated tulle panels was one of my favourites at this event. It’s feminine charms cannot be ignored.

Anita Caprioli: Also in red, this Stella McCartney gown with its elegant silhouette and understated detailing was a head-turner.

    Roberta Ruiu is my favorite. Isabeli’s gown is gorgeous but her styling could’ve been better. I’m not a fan of the heavy makeup nor the hair.

    Many beautiful looks to pay homage to Franca Sozzani. I like many of them. Kurkova, Fontana and Puccini are my favorite ones. Vittoria Puccini is such a beautiful and elegant woman. I love everything she wears.

    Love Karolina here!
    The color on Isabeli looks amazing and isn’t that the same gown that Elsa Hosk wore at Cannes? Though this one isn’t wrinkled.

    My first thought upon seeing Donatella was: She better hold on to that wig … jeje well with that been said, Im really surprised that she’s my fav from this bunch

    There is a bit of a promy/pageant feel, but Isabeli is stunning in the pink gown. I’m missing her from the poll.

      I miss it too… one of my favourite looks from this festival without a doubt.

    I like Isabeli. That dress looks like it was made for her. Perfect combination.

    • Nat39 September 2, 2017 at 12:47 #

      Yep, the dress sings on her.

    I like Donatella.

    A lot of looks here and to my amazement I love most of them with specials shout outs to Donatella, Carolina, and Roberta. The only ones that don’t work for me are the Gucci dress and whatever that is that Eva is wearing.
