Venice Film Festival: Scarlett Johansson In Versace

Versace scarlet johansson Venice Film Festival: Scarlett Johansson In Versace %tag

Who: Actress Scarlett Johansson 

Where: At the premiere of ‘Under The Skin’ at the 70th Venice Film Festival in Italy

Wearing: A black off-the-shoulder Versace gown teamed with Roger Vivier heels and a multicoloured jewelled Bulgari necklace from the High Jewellery Collection and a pair of stud earrings from the Bulgari Flora Collection

Verdict: I am a sucker for old-Hollywood glamour and this black Versace gown is one show-stopping number and Scarlett Johansson looks absolutely stunning.

Everything about this looks is gorgeous – from the way the gown works her curves and shows off her incredible figure, to the sex appeal of the plunging off-the-shoulder neckline, to her statement necklace and dishevelled up-do.

For me this is red carpet perfection – Scarlett is oozing sex appeal and the styling with that pop of colour from Bulgari is just divine. I love this look.

What do you think of Scarlett Johansson’s latest red carpet look?

Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti

Jaeger LeC diane kruger 1 Jaeger LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti  %tag

Who: Diane Kruger 

Where: At the Jaeger-LeCoultre Gala Dinner celebrating its 180th anniversary at Teatro La Fenice during the 70th Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A purple, three quarter sleeved Alberta Ferretti crushed velvet gown from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with a box clutch, H. Stern diamond drop earrings, a cocktail ring, and a Jaeger-LeCoultre Joaillerie 101 Etrier watch

Verdict: There is something about velvet, I think that Diane Kruger’s latest red carpet look will split opinions, for some velvet is a little old-fashioned and conservative, however for me I love the luxe feel of the textured fabric and Diane looks uber-glamorous in this gorgeous-yet-simple Alberta Ferretti gown.

I think if this dress had been in a deep red or black I wouldn’t have like it as much – I just think the purple seems more modern and I love that she matched her plum manicure to the dress.

As well as loving the dress, I also adored Diane’s jewellery – from her elegant Jaeger-LeCoultre watch to her statement cocktail ring, and those gorgeous diamond star-shaped drop earrings – each piece is exquisite.

I know it is still sunny outside – but I am loving Diane’s wintry look – are you a fan?Jaeger LeC diane kruger 5 Jaeger LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti  %tagJaeger LeC diane kruger 2 Jaeger LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti  %tag Jaeger LeC diane kruger 3 Jaeger LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti  %tag Jaeger LeC diane kruger 4 Jaeger LeCoultre Gala Dinner: Diane Kruger In Alberta Ferretti  %tag[Pics: Getty Images for Jaeger-LeCoultre]

Venice Film Festival: Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab

dakota fanning elie saab Venice Film Festival: Dakota Fanning In Elie Saab %tag

Who: Dakota Fanning

Where: At the premiere for her new film, ‘Night Moves’ at the 70th annual Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A midnight blue beaded Elie Saab Haute Couture ballgown featuring a deep v-neck from the autumn/winter 2013 collection, teamed with Rona Pfeiffer sapphire and diamond ring

Verdict: Wow, wow, wow – what a look from Dakota Fanning over the weekend while she was in Venice promoting her latest flick.

You can’t get more beautiful than an Elie Saab Couture gown, and I love everything about the 19-year-olds look, from the gorgeous colour of the ballgown to her fun additions of the bling ring by Rona Pfeiffer, and I adore that she kept her hair and make-up youthful.

The blonde actress is a real beauty and I love her take on fashion – this looks is dramatic with the plunging neckline, glamorous with the beaded embroidery, and totally age-appropriate with the fun accessories and poker straight hair.

I love this look – are you a fan of Dakota’s Elie Saab gown?

Venice Film Festival: Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace

SelenaGomezVersace Venice Film Festival: Selena Gomez In Atelier Versace %tagWho: Selena Gomez

Where: At the premiere for her new film Spring Breakers at the 69th Annual Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A strapless pale pink leather Atelier Versace gown from the autumn/winter 2011 collection, featuring a stencil design and a dramatic draping that gathered at her hip and then cascaded down her skirt to the side, teamed with a Judith Leiber minaudière and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery

Verdict: On paper, this dress should have been worn by a red carpet big-hitter like Kate Hudson, Diane Kruger, or Penelope Cruz, but some how Selena really makes this exquisite gown work for her.

Last year she was a Disney starlet, cute, adorable but still very much a teenager, this year she really has stepped it up, hitting twenty has turned her into a screen siren in the making for me. I loved her sexy Roberto Cavalli mini she wore the MuchMusic Video Awards, I had serious leg envy when she worked a Versace look to launch her fragrance, but what really made her stand-out for me this year had to be her high-fashion editorial for the July issue of American ELLE – it really showed off her sexy side.

Like with newcomer Maika Monroe who wowed last week in Marchesa, Selena came to Venice and completely stole the show. I love the blush-toned colour of the gown, I love the drama of the side draping, I totally adore her side-swept tousled waves, and I really don’t think her first major appearance at the Venice Film Festival could have gone much better!!!

Do you rate Selena’s look or do you think this dress is a little too mature for her?

Venice Film Festival: Freida Pinto Wears Alexander McQueen and Jaeger-LeCoultre

FreidaJaeger1 Venice Film Festival: Freida Pinto Wears Alexander McQueen and Jaeger LeCoultre %tag

Who: Actress Freida Pinto

Where: At a gala dinner hosted by Jaeger-LeCoultre celebrating The Rendez-Vous Collection at Giustinian Palace in Venice during the 69th Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A black and gold printed Alexander McQueen gown with cut-out panelling to her midriff and an open back from the Resort 2013 collection, teamed with a Jaeger-LeCoultre watch

Verdict: I am loving Freida lately, it all started with Cannes this year where she was a little more sexy and daring with her red carpet choices, and once again I love the choice of this Alexander McQueen gown. I love the colour combination of the gold print on the black, the midriff-baring panel just shows off her incredible figure, and I love the train at the back.

Overall, for me this look is edgy and different, I am sure some won’t like the print, I love that the print gets bigger towards the floor it is like an optical illusion. I would however loved her to wear some more jewellery, I get that the gala was for the watch, but a gold cuff, drop earrings would have complemented this look well.

What do you think of Freida’s look – do you like this print on her?

Gucci Premiere Launch: Blake Lively Shimmers In Gucci

GucciPremiereBlakeLively1 Gucci Premiere Launch: Blake Lively Shimmers In Gucci %tag

Who: Blake Lively, the face of Gucci’s new fragrance Gucci Premiere

Where: At the unveiling of the Director’s Cut of the Gucci Premiere film held at the Hotel Cipriani during the 2012 Venice International Film Festival

Wearing: A one-of-a-kind burgundy sleeveless deep v-neck, fully embroidered Gucci cocktail dress featuring raised flower detailing around the neckline, teamed with burgundy python Gucci Kinga Spike high heels, and pink gold and black diamond bracelet and ring finished off her look

Verdict: Well it was a given that Blake would wear Gucci, but what did surprise me was the colour, I love this deep wine shade on her, and I was expecting a gown that skimmed the floor, but I suppose considering she made her entrance on a boat it is hardly surprising that she chose to go short.

Blake looked absolutely incredible, everything from the shade to the high-glitz of the fully embroidered overlapping palettes, to her flawless make-up and messy updo, I love this look from head-to-toe. It may not have been what I was expecting but I love that it wasn’t girlie, this cocktail dress is edgy and it suits her.

I also had to include the picture of Blake with Frida Giannini, as I just adore Frida’s grey silk crepe Gucci cocktail dress with Art Deco-inspired beaded – the silhouette is divine.

What do you think of Blake’s look? Was you expecting something different?

Check out the Nicolas Winding Refn’s director’s cut of the Gucci Premiere film below – I loved the commercial version but this is just exquisite, I especially like the soundtrack.

Venice Film Festival: Salma Hayek In Gucci

SalmaHayekGucci Venice Film Festival: Salma Hayek In Gucci %tag

Who: Salma Hayek

Where: At the second annual Gucci for Women in Cinema Award held during Venice Film Festival

Wearing: A floor-skimming black Gucci gown with sequinned embroidery detailing to the shoulders that goes down the front to her hip, as well as Salma’s trademark plunging neckline, teamed with a beaded clutch and drop earrings

Verdict: When it comes to red carpet glamour Salma seems to be an unofficial ambassador for Gucci, she always chooses them for her big moments whether it is at Cannes, the Golden Globes or in Venice, and I am not surprised when they make her look as smoking as this!!!

This is a classic dress that is made for her sexy body, shows off her assets perfectly, while still looking elegant with the embroidered detailing.

Granted this is nothing new from Salma but all the same it still looks gorgeous.
