The 79th Venice Film Festival is currently underway and fashion is taking center stage. Filmmakers, actors, models and pop stars have taken to the Venetian streets of Italy to celebrate the best of international cinematic excellence. Among the attendees who catch our eye is actor and Gucci muse Jodie Turner-Smith, who glided on the red carpet in a gorgeous purple cut-out petticoat from Et Ochs. She elevated the look with layered necklaces and a simple black clutch.
She later wowed at the “Bardo” premiere wearing an abstract art-inspired gown by Christopher John Rogers. The dress in question is Look 33 from Rogers’s Collection 009 and was inspired by the art of the late abstract pioneer Sam Gilliam. Styled by Wayman and Micah, Turner-Smith paired the colorful racerback twill dress with a dazzling diamond choker and complimentary drop earrings. The “Anne Boylen” star has been quite the only one to watch this week. From a stunning black sequin Gucci dress with satin neon green opera gloves to a pink lace dress, also by Gucci, with towering white lace-up boots, she has dominated red carpet after red carpet. Another memorable look she wore is a sheer red Versace dress with a coordinating Brandon Blackwood bag and contrasting green Kendall Miles plush heels.
Other stars in attendance included Tessa Thompsonwho stole the show in a blue archive Armani Privé look; Cate Blanchett; Hillary Clinton; and Emma Chamberlin. The Venice Film Festival, considered the oldest festival in the world, runs until September. 10. As many acclaimed international films continue to make their debut, we are excited to see more of the red carpet looks.
