Every year one day during the festival is full of stars wearing chic Miu Miu ensembles as they celebrate the fashion brands “Women’s Tales” short film series. “Women’s Tales” is an ongoing short film series created by fashion brand Miu Miu. Aside from the stipulation that the films use Miu Miu clothing the all female directors are given carte blanche to create their films. Since 2012, the films have had their world premiere at the Venice Days section of the Venice International Film Festival. We have seen big names like Chloe Sevigny and Ava DuVernay among the female directors who have created film for this series. Aside from the directors and stars of the short films, who are usually rising stars, Miu Miu typically invites its famous Hollywood friends to help celebrate the films. The two films created in this series this year are Dakota Fanning’s directorial debut Hello Apartment and Saudi Arabian director Haifaa Al-Mansour’s The Wedding Singer’s Daughter. Dakota Fanning’s Hello Apartment actually debuted earlier this year with a party held during London Fashion Week with the magazine LOVE. Of course everyone in attendance was decked out head to toe in Miu Miu and I am expecting that to be the case, as it always is, when everyone steps out for the celebrations during the 2018 Venice Film Festival. Usually we don’t have any idea who will jet to Venice for the “Women’s Tales” celebration, but with Dakota’s film I have a little more of an idea. I am expecting to see Dakota on the red carpet while promoting her short. I went for her standard color of eggshell, but I wanted something much more statement making that she usually wears. That is why I went for this 60’s mod style Miu Miu Resort 2019 cocktail dress which features a high neckline and intricate 3D embellishments for Dakota. It is very glamorous and statement making. The “Women’s Tales” red carpets are typically cocktail looks, even for the stars who are in the films that are screening, so I think that this is the ultimate statement moment for Dakota to wear for this premiere. A sleek updo, defined eyes, pink lips, and silver glitter Miu Miu mid-heel sandals would really make this the perfectly chic moment for Dakota. Eve Hewson, daughter of rock star Bono, stars in Hello Apartment and I am expecting to see her jump on a jet to Venice to help promote the film on the red carpet. I want to see Eve deliver a very glamorous look wearing this custom Miu Miu tea length gown. I saw a black scalloped neckline mini dress and lengthened it and added some beautiful silver crystal beading to really make a very chic statement moment for Eve to bring to this red carpet. Her styling is where she can usually loose me and I want to see Eve really style this glamorous moment in the perfect manner. A black velvet Miu Miu crystal and pearl embellished minaudiere, a pair of black satin Miu Miu crystal detail peep toe pumps, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, and nude lips would ensure that this look is absolutely glamorous from head to toe. Since Elle Fanning is Dakota’s biggest fan I would be absolutely shocked if we don’t see Elle make her way to Venice to help celebrate the “Women’s Tales.” I went for a bold color moment for Elle with this red Miu Miu scalloped edge mini dress which features a round halter neck neck, a sleeveless design, scalloped details, a bow detail on the back of the neck. Usually Elle sticks to soft pastel or neutral colors for the red carpet so this would be a real bold moment for her and I think that styling it with a sleek low bun, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of red suede Miu Miu crystal buckle mules would make it beautiful statement moment for Elle to bring to this event in Venice. Aside from the Fanning sisters and Eve I am expecting a few other big names to head to Venice with Miu Miu. Suki Waterhouse walked in the star studded Miu Miu Resort 2019 collection and she has a film screening at the festival so it would surprise me if she doesn’t stick around for the “Women’s Tales” celebration during the festival. She has been rocking a lot of 60’s glam looks on the red carpet recently so I decided to keep that going with this light pink floral brocade Miu Miu Fall 2018 RTW pencil dress which features a strapless design, a fitted silhouette, and a mid-length. I can definitely see this as a real 60’s socialite moment on the red carpet especially if Suki styles it with a sleek bouffant style updo, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a silver Miu Miu ‘Lady Matelasse’ bag which features an antique effect buckle encrusted with sparkling crystal and an adjustable shoulder strap, and a pair of silver glitter Miu Miu crystal detail sandals. I definitely think that this would be an extremely chic moment for Suki.
Some of the other stars who I feel are very likely to jet to Venice for the “Women’s Tales” celebration include Stacy Martin, Gwendoline Christie, Mia Goth, Rowan Blanchard, Jamie King, Kate Bosworth, Chloe Sevigny, Sadie Sink, and Uma Thurman. I guess we will just have to wait and see.
The 2018 Venice Film Festival opens Wednesday August 29, 2018 and runs through Saturday September 8, 2018.
