September 6, 2020 Premiere, Runway To Red Carpet

2020 Venice Film Festival Red Carpet Roundup

Posted by Catherine Kallon
Maty Fall Diba Etro Venice Film Festival 2020

There were many more celebrities and models who have graced the red carpet at Venice Film Festival since it kicked off on Wednesday (September 2).  So before I close for the week, here is a look at some of the standouts.

Maty Fall Diba: The 18-year old Senegalese model who recently closed the Dior Resort 2021 show joins a host of people at this event wearing Etro.  The custom made silk chiffon dress with a cross bodice, and a deep slit enhanced by golden threads is easily my favourite of those we’ve seen so far.  But I’m more dazzle by how beautiful she is and that gorgeous smile. I’m sure we’ll see a lot more of her on the red carpet.

Anna Foglietta Etro Venice Film Festival

Anna Foglietta:  We’ve seen a lot of paisley print Etro dresses, but the Italian actress switched gears in this custom made long sleeved black silk velvet column gown which was enriched with Swarovski tone on tone crystals. It’s good to see that not everyday is boho in the world of Etro.

Katherine Waterston Gabriela Hearst Venice Film Festival

Katherine Waterston: This ivory cady strapless dress from Gabriela Hearst’s Fall 2020 collection – which focuses on clean lines – is everything I expect from the  English actress, but the metal necklace looks a bit uncomfortable. 

Arizona Muse Alberta Ferretti Red Dress Venice Film Festival

Arizona Muse:  As you know I live for a goosebump moment, and it are multiplying upon sight of the Arizona gracing the red carpet for the ‘Miss Marx’ premiere wearing this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2020 red pleated chiffon gown with ruffles a plenty.  I’m so glad she opted for the red version.  I feel it makes a greater impact, and feels more radiant and dramatic in this setting. I can see the purple version at the Tony Awards, or a New York film premiere. Bvlgari jewels and Casadei sandals completed her look.

Cristiana Capotondi Alberta Ferretti Venice Film Festival

Cristiana Capotondi: The Italian actress is a woman after my own heart due to her affinity for the colour blue.

Photocall:  She arrived at the Excelsior Hotel wearing a crisp three-piece Alberta Ferretti Resort 2021 suit, which was made more summery and less formal thanks to the bralet.

Premiere:  The magic really happened on the red carpet for the ‘Miss Marx’ premiere, where that storm was brewing again thanks to the degrade jet black to midnight blue.  But it’s the embellishments on this Alberta Ferretti Fall 2020 gown which made this a visually arresting look.

Linda Caridi:  September in Venice hasn’t quite turned to Fall, but I was getting a Fall vibe from Linda’s Giorgio Armani gown.  No doubt due to the luxe velvet fabrication. Even with the deep v-neck detail, the dress still feels classic, with a touch of modern courtesy of Italian brands Crivelli Jewelry, and Casadei, who made her sandals. I have seen someone at this event wearing a green, white, and red dress, but this look has a more subtle way of celebrating Italian fashion.  

Cecilia Rodriguez Maria Lucia Hohan Venice Film Festival

Cecilia Rodriguez: The Argentinian star wore a very familiar Maria Lucia Hohan gold pleated dress. Kate Hudson 2016 Vanity Fair Oscar party anyone? Messika jewels completed her look.

Taylor Hill Etro

Taylor Hill: For the ‘Amants’ premiere, the model wore another Etro dress. Instead of boho, she was giving us a traditional smoking jacket. On this occasion her Gianvito Rossi shoes and Chopard jewels grab my attention.

Beatrice Valli:  The Italian actress stunned in not one but two couture creations.

‘Padrenostro’ Premiere:  Arm-in-arm with her husband Marco Fantini, Beatrice dominated the red carpet wearing a red, strapless George Hobeika Spring 2019 Couture ball gown.  Did she bite of more than she can chew?  It’s a lot of dress to contend with.

‘Miss Marx’ Premiere:  She then switched to an elegant white Rami Kadi Spring 2020 Couture gown featured an intricately beaded, strapless bodice and a feather skirt.  I can’t believe taken this long into the festival for us to see some feathers.

Many Lebanese designers ateliers were hit hard by the explosion in Beirut on August 4, so I’m glad that Beatrice chose to highlight two Lebanese designers on the red carpet at this event.

    Everyone looks lovely and elegant.

    Just a minor point. Katherine Waterston was born in England…but to American parents and she was raised in the States. Calling her an English actress is a bit of a stretch.

    Even after a couple of years Etro’s foray into eveningwear is still baffling to me. Not a single memorable CUSTOM look. Just pointless. And that is coming from someone who has been truly loving Etro for decades.

      Agreed. I have yet to see a custom Etro gown on any of these festival red carpets that is remotely memorable or an interesting design.

    They all look beautiful.

    Nothing groundbreaking but still very elegant and glamorous.

    P.S. Dear Catherine,
    thank you for being back .Your work is as always amazing

    Love Katherine Waterston’s look! Minimalist perfection. I kinda agree about the necklace, though, but I can look past it.

    Anna and Maty look incredible !
    Love the dresses and attitude

  7. JHH September 6, 2020 at 9:09 pm #

    I agree about that necklace. It looks ridiculously uncomfortable. What shoe is Arizona wearing? From what I can see of them, they are bringing her look down. Cristiana’s blue suit looks a little sloppy — maybe it is a bit too big or maybe it needed a different top or should hav been buttoned and presses a bit better. Maty and Ana look absolutely fantastic.
