Spot: Elie Saab pale pink cap sleeve backless gown as seen on Jessica Chastain at the 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 5 - Wilde Salome premiere.
Back to the Venice Film Festival, Jessica Chastain is fast turning into a red carpet darling.. and it also helps that she has had so many premieres this year! This is one busy actress.. and I can't wait to see her in The Debt.
She was in Venice for the premiere of Wilde Salome, her new film with Al Pacino. This is an unusual documentary directed by Pacino about his obsession with the Oscar Wilde play - the making of a film about the play, and the play itself (if it sounds confusing that's because it is!). What's notable about this film is that Jessica Chastain played the title role in the production long before she was known. She was cast in the stage version back in 2006.. and it has taken 5 years to release this project.
Spot: Marios Schwab and Erdem dresses as seen on Marisa Tomei at the 68th Venice Film Festival - 'Ides of March' & 'W.E.' Premieres.
Catching up on other notable red carpet appearances at the 68th Venice Film Festival, Marisa Tomei looked fabulous in Preen at the photocall for 'The Ides of March', but check her out on the red carpet!
At the premiere of 'The Ides of March', the George Clooney-directed film that opened the festival, she looked gorgeous in a mustard yellow gown by Marios Schwab. From the Fall/Winter 2011 runway, my favourite part of this whole look are the pearls pulled through the bodice. Fantastic!
Spot: Prada pale pink drop waist gown online as seen on Gwyneth Paltrow from The 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 4 - Contagion - Premiere
On the subject of cool blondes, how about Gwyneth Paltrow on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival..? The actress looked gorgeous in a pale pink drop waist gown that looks very much like Valentino Haute Couture, a gown modified from the Fall/Winter 2010 runway. If you look at the back of the dress, the bow is gorgeous... and well, I'm suprised to see a Prada looking very much the Valentino couture gown shown below!
Shopping Spot: Buy Stella McCartney cream & black scuba dress online as seen on Kate Winslet at the 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 3 - 'Mildred Pierce' premiere.
Kate Winslet wore Stella McCartney to the premiere of 'Mildred Pierce' at the... wait a sec, where have I heard that before..?? Oh yeaaah, that was here.. when she wore Stella McCartney to the New York premiere of 'Mildred Pierce' back in March! This is deja vu.. but she still gets two thumbs up..
Spot: Mary Katrantzou & Valentino Haute Couture dresses as seen on Keira Knightley at the 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 2 - 'A Dangerous Method' Photocall & Premiere.
What a treat to see Keira Knightley at the Venice Film Festival, and in case you missed it, I posted her hairstyles first! She unveiled a new sleek gorgeous asymmetric bob at the photocall 'A Dangerous Method', and I knew a few folks would want to see the close-up photos...
For the photocall, Keira chose a graphic print - and I'm loving this trend of wearing dresses you can find online at the film festival! This is one of many fabulous grahic prints by Mary Katrantzou, from Fall/Winter 2011, the closest print online is the multi coloured Lily Pond Silk Dress found at Matches Fashion. I've put together more from the collection below - including the gorgeous scarves found at Net-A-Porter!
Shopping Spot: Buy Alessandra Rich black dress online as seen on Evan Rachel Wood at the 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 3 - 'Mildred Pierce'.
My oh my, how much do I love Evan Rachel Wood right now?? She continues her love of all things black & white with another winning look.. this time in black lace!
Evan walked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival on Day 3 - for the premiere of 'Mildred Pierce', and while I'm not complaining (at all!), I saw this HBO mini-series waaaay back in March. Not sure what's going on here with scheduling, but if you haven't seen it, I highly recommend. Kate Winslet & Evan were already in Venice to promote new projects, maybe that was the thinking (they play mother & daughter in Mildred Pierce).
Shopping Spot: Buy Dolce & Gabbana floral print dresses online as seen on Andrea Roseborough & Natalie Dormer from 68th Venice Film Festival - Day 2 - 'W.E.' - Photocall & Premiere
More from the Venice Film Festival, we're taking another look at Madonna's upcoming film "W.I." - the Wallis Simpson story - and another look at Dolce & Gabbana! You will remember Evan Rachel Wood looking super sleek in her D&G suit, and now we have both Andrea Riseborough and Natalie Dormer in new season floral print dresses.
Andrea has herself the coveted role of Wallis, and I'm thrilled to cover Natalie Dormer -she is one of my personal favs (her portrayal of Anne Boleyn on 'The Tudors' was second to none!). In "W.I.", she plays Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon, also known as the Queen Mother!
