In terms of glamour the Venice Film Festival ranks right below Cannes for me. From the main competition to the sidebars the red carpets are usually chock full of glamorous gowns. The Orizzonti section of the festival is usually full of unknown rising talent, but this year there are a few films with names of stars who can really make a fashionable splash on the red carpet. Berenice Bejo became a major star when she earned a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in 2011 for her performance in The Artist. She is absolutely stunning and rocks some of the best brands on the red carpet. This year in Venice she will promote her film The Quietude and I want her to do it in high style. I went full fledged couture for Berenice to wear this awards season. For the photocall I went to this gold, sage, and pink metallic thread plaid Giambattista Valli Fall 2018 Couture double breasted suit. It is a real statement suit and one that I don’t think that we are used to seeing during a Venice Film Festival photocall, but I think that Berenice could make it a very easy glam moment. I would ditch the chiffon printed top in favor of going bare chested, easy waves, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of gold Christian Louboutin ‘Hollandway’ buckled strappy slingback pumps to really ensure that this look is glamour defined from head to toe. For the premiere I went even more glamorous with this Alexis Mabille Fall 2018 Couture bustier fit to flare sheath gown in fuchsia crepe with an off the shoulder satin cape. It is absolutely glamorous moment and I feel like on the red carpet on the Lido that this gown when paired with a romantic updo, defined eyes, matching fuchsia lips, cabaret pink Aquazzura ‘Coquette’ velvet and satin platform sandals, and a pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection earrings with pink quartz, rubellites, and diamonds in 18k white gold.
The premiere of The Quietude will take place on Sunday September 2, 2018. The 2018 Venice Film Festival opens Wednesday August 29, 2018 and runs through Saturday September 8, 2018.
