Vox Lux looks like the perfect Black Swan meets club kid kind of movie and I am very interested in seeing what the cast will bring to the red carpet while they promote the film at the 2018 Venice Film Festival. This film may not have any awards season buzz behind it, but the cast has great style. So I feel like we will be in for a very glamorous treat when the step onto the red carpet at the Lido to promote this film.I will say that given her history Natalie Portman could announce that she is pregnant again. The last two times that we have seen Natalie promoting films at Venice she has announced that she has been pregnant. Will she take the red carpet for the first time in Venice without a baby on board? Who knows, but I don’t think she will be. For the Vox Lux photocall I went a more cocktail route picking this mauve and black Viktor & Rolf Sior Resort 2019 crystallized plisse cocktail dress which features a soft tulle overlay, halter neckline and belted waistline. It almost reminds me of early Rodarte pieces and I think that is why I was drawn to it for Natalie. It is one of my more glamorous photocall wishes. It reminds me of the looks that Natalie wore when she was younger, and I definitely think that she would own it. She is a Dior ambassador so I decided that the brand would still be represented in this photocall ensemble with a pair of black Christian Dior ‘D-Choc’ high heeled pumps in black mesh and suede calfskin in an eye motif. Finishing the look with a romantic updo, defined eyes, and pink lips would make this look elegant perfection. For the premiere I went the custom route for Natalie. She does classic glamour with ease and I think that she would own the red carpet at the premiere wearing this navy Christian Dior Couture off the shoulder gown which features a belted waist and a pleated mermaid hem. The glamour of the look would be perfectly complimented with a sleek bouffant style updo, defined eyes, blush pink lips, a pair of black Christian Dior ‘D-Mesure’ crystal eye motif slingback pumps, and Dior High Jewelry “Milieu du Sickle Diamant” earrings in white gold and diamonds. It would all make for a very glamorous return to Venice for Natalie.Stacy Martin has been experimenting with her fashion options recently. Everything used to be Prada or Miu Miu for her, but this year she has worn so many other amazing brands. She has Vox Lux in main competition and her film Amanda in the Orizzonti section, so I am really interested in seeing what she will bring to the red carpet yet. I want to see Stacy go to her comfort zone for this photocall with this Prada Resort 2019 ensemble which features an orange and gold embroidered brocade short sleeve top with a ruffle accent across the chest and metallic threading throughout the pattern and a pink and gold brocade mini skirt with a matching wide buckle belt and metallic stitching throughout the intricate pattern. She has had some of her best looks from Prada and I definitely think that this ensemble is something she would get into. A half up/half down teased hairstyle, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of coral Prada scalloped block heel platform sandals would make this look perfection. For the premiere I went to one of the brands I most want to see on the Venice Film Festival red carpet is No. 21 and I definitely think that the brand suits Stacy’s style. She has worn a few looks from the brand in the past and I think that she would definitely own the red carpet wearing a modified No. 21 Resort 2019 silver sequin embellished one shoulder gown which features a dramatic pink bow on the shoulder. This gown is inspired by a mini dress from this collection and I think that Stacy will own this dress as a gown on the Venice Film Festival red carpet. It is bold and dazzling moment. Definitely something a little more disco than we are used to seeing Stacy rocking on the red carpet, but I think that she would own this moment especially when paired with a pink Prada satin box clutch, silver Prada ‘Pearly’ leather sandals, a romantic updo, defined eyes, and pink lips.I have picked lots of glamorous gowns for Naomi Watts to wear over the course of this festival. Most of them are floor length or have dramatic trains, but I do think that we will see Naomi wear at least one tea length gown on the red carpet. I went back to last falls collections and picked this very chic black Chanel Fall 2017 Couture tea length silk gown which features a plunging neckline, knotted detail on the neckline, peplum like detail on the hips, crystal buttons, and a sheer beaded hem to be the perfect shorter option for Naomi to bring to life on this red carpet. I am really surprised that no one has snatched this gown up yet and I think that if anyone could really make this a very chic moment on the red carpet it would be Naomi. I think it would be styled oh so chic-ly with a romantic updo, defined eyes, red lips, a black satin Chanel clutch, black satin Manolo Blahnik ‘Nadira’ jeweled satin pumps, and a Bulgari ‘Parentesi’ diamond link necklace to make this a very chic moment for the festival juror.
The premiere of Vox Lux will take place on Tuesday September 4, 2018. The 2018 Venice Film Festival opens Wednesday August 29, 2018 and runs through Saturday September 8, 2018.
