Venice Film Festival Fashion Round-Up

Red Carpet Fashion
Venice Film Festival 2011

The 68th Annual Venice Film Festival comes to a close today after two glamourous weeks. The event was attended by A-list stars from around the world, stylish socialites, models and well-known Italian celebrities. These are the highlights and must-see looks from the red carpet.

Berry Tones: Italian actress Sarah Felberbaum wears an aubergine pleated gown with lace trims by Alberta Ferretti. Cindy Crawford looks amazing at 45, in a ruby red embellished Roberto Cavalli gown. Natasha Poly stuns in a hot pink chiffon gown with key-hole halter neck by Gucci. Her look is perfect from top to bottom. Selma Blair opted for an understated look, wearing a voluminous red cape-styled gown by Lanvin. Greek-Italian actress Valeria Golino wears a one-of-a-kind voile creponne Gucci gown in a rich shade of magenta. I wish she'd done something else with her hair.

Greyscale: Salma Hayek is striking in a smokey grey organza gown by Gucci, with single strap and feather-tipped ruffle skirt. Cristiana Capotondi wears a silky silver gown with ruched criss-cross bodice. Sarah Felberbaum shimmers in silver grey silk charmeuse gown by Gucci. Cristiana Capotondi opts for grey once again. This time the Italian actress wears a tulle covered AMEN dress, that glitters with a gold sequined design. English actress Kaya Scodelario wears a lacey Burberry gown with plunging neckline and ruched waist detail.

Pale Shades: Chinese actress Eva Huang chose a girly ruffle sleeved dress with embellished bodice and tiered skirt. Event MC Vittoria Puccini channels old-Hollywood glamour in a beaded gown with feathered skirt by Versace. Vivian Hsu wears one of my favourite looks from the event. The Taiwanese actress looked classy in a Christian Dior gown, with wrap-over bodice featuring a tie-up bow, and embellished shoulder and sleeve detail. Evan Rachel Wood decided to be different by wearing a buttoned shantung shirtdress with cuffed sleeves and full skirt. It's by Alessandra Rich, with black heels by Giuseppe Zanotti.

Waisted: I love the glorious teal colour of Giulia Belivacqua's one-shouldered gown. The alluring cut-out back is adorned with satin bows. Italian actress and singer Violante Placido stuns in a sheer lavender gown by Alberta Ferretti. Her Swarovski encrusted dress has a plunging v-neck and black waistband. Chinese actress Charlene Choi wore an emerald green toga style gown, held together by a roped fabric belt. High nude heels finished her look. Marisa Tomei stands out in a mustard coloured long-sleeved gown by Marios Schwab, which has a twist-front and pearl string detail. Italian actress Myriam Catania wears a jade long-sleeved satin dressing-style-gown by Gucci.

Fields of Gold: Jessica Chastain, whom I featured earlier this week, wears an exquisite lace embroidered gown by Elie Saab. Diane Kruger is heavenly in a nude tulle Elie Saab gown with shimmery underskirt and beaded bodice. Gwyneth Paltrow chose a simple halter neck organza gown by Prada. Keira Knightley brought an air of romance to the festival, wearing a beautiful gold-painted gown by Valentino.

Dramatic: English actress Andrea Riseborough wears a Cinderella style gown in the softest shade of gold. Her Christian Dior gown features a full tulle skirt scattered with sequins. Aussie actress Abbie Cornish is dressed in a textured purple and black Atelier Versace gown, covered in tiny silk organza petals. Irish actress Sarah Bolger opted for a dramatic bottle green gown with bejeweled neck and waistband, and a massive tulle skirt.

Best of Black: Valentina Lodovini looked elegant in a long-sleeved Gucci gown with silver and gold bejeweled neckline. Italian model Sveva Alviti wears a black sleeveless gown with embroidered high neckline. Russian model Natasha Poly put on a daring see-through chiffon dress by Gucci. I like the turquoise floral shrug she's holding. Italian actress Asia Argento wears a strapless black chiffon gown by Alberta Ferretti, which has a tulle and lace skirt. Socialite Bianca Brandolini d'Adda wears an interesting Gucci gown with several cut-outs on the ornately beaded bodice.
