Welcome to my first day of two set of wish list days for the 2018 Venice Film Festival. There are so many films that are set to deliver many beautiful red carpet moments over the course of this festival. Aside from the films in the main competition and the gala out of competitions there are also some heavy fashion hitters who have films screening in the Orizzonti selection of this years edition. Stacy Martin has a few films that she will be promoting over the course of festival season and I have to say that I am really excited to see what she will bring. There was a time when I would have expected nothing other than Prada or Miu Miu. This year she has given us other options of designers and I have spread them out over my wishes for her to rock this year. She rocked the red carpet in Cannes wearing Dior Couture earlier this year, and for her to rock for the Amanda photocall I went back to Dior. Instead of couture though I decided that this patchwork Christian Dior Fall 2018 RTW scarf print midi dress which features long sleeves and ruffled details all would make for a really chic photocall moment for Stacy. Rarely does Dior dress a star and allow them not to not have a head to toe look. I just don’t want Stacy to have the head to toe runway look. I would ditch the wide belt and the black heavy boots from the runway in favor of black suede Christian Dior ‘Bright-D’ d’orsay sandals with a crystal ankle strap, a loose updo, and simple makeup to really make this a very chic moment for a Venice photocall. For the premiere I did turn back to Prada. I designed a custom gown based on a Prada dress I found on YOOX. I took the bodice of that dress which features 3D abstract beading and an inverted pink waist and paired it with a burgundy pleated silk chiffon skirt. It gives a modern take on that glamorous flapper style dressing and I definitely think that Stacy would own this dress on the red carpet. More glamorous styling with a black satin Prada crystal embellished floral drawstring pouch, a pair of black Prada crystal embellished slingback sandals, a sleek updo, defined eyes, burgundy lips, and a pair of vintage Cartier art deco drop earrings would really make this the perfect modern flapper moment.
The 2018 Venice Film Festival opens Wednesday August 29, 2018 and runs through Saturday September 8, 2018.
