Today I close out my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival with a couple of looks for the Closing Ceremony. Sometimes the closing ceremony is lacking in stars and sometimes it isn’t. I don’t remember Naomi Watts or Stacy Martin walking the red carpet at the end of their jury duty, but I want to make sure this festival ends as strong as I’ve wished for it to start. For my final wish for 2020 jury president Cate Blanchett I went back to Armani Prive. I had to bookend her time in Venice with looks from the festival sponsor. I’ve been LOVING the idea of her wearing this electric blue arabesque lace one shoulder a-line gown from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture as I’ve been going through all my wishes. It was one of the first looks I picked for Cate. I feel like this bold color moment would be an absolutely gorgeous look for her to close out the festival in. It’s been a really long time since we’ve seen Cate wear this a shade of blue this bold. I can just imagine it being stand out against her soft alabaster skin. A sleek retro updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of electric blue satin Amina Muaddi ‘Begum’ pointed toe crystal broach detailed curved heel pumps, and white diamond Chopard ‘Precious’ collection chandelier earrings would make this look just scream glamour. As I have said several times I am really interested in seeing what French actress Ludivine Sagnier will wear on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival as the checks in for jury duty this year. She has a very effortlessly French approach to style. Dior is such a quintessential French brand that I couldn’t go through all my Venice wishes for Ludivine without including one look from the brand for her. I have loved this silver pleated metallic silk Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture gown which features an asymmetrical bodice since it was presented. I feel like it is the perfect balance of high glam and bohemian elegance, which is exactly what I feel Ludivine’s style is all about. I would love to see her bring this look to life with a soft romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, a grey crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch, a pair of silver crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ‘Ellabrita’ ankle strap satin sandals, and a selection of Veschetti white diamond jewels including ‘Cortina’ three row waterfall earrings and a ‘Kate’ five row cuff bracelet. Anna Foglietta will be back on the Venice Film Festival red carpet at the Closing Ceremony as the event’s hostess. I once again turned to festival sponsor Giorgio Armani for the perfect gown for Anna to wear on the lido red carpet. I adore this nude strapless Armani Prive Fall 2019 Couture diamond cutout sequined column gown overlaid with sheer tulle. It screams glamour and I feel like Anna has the right vibe about her to really make this look come to life. I would love to see her style this gown with a curly updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a nude Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ sun burst crystal diamante embellished satin rectangle box clutch, a pair of ballet pink Alevi Milano ‘Penelope’ crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a statement Buccellati ‘Bartolomeo’ white and yellow gold set white diamond bib necklace to make sure that Anna delivers head to toe glamour on the Venice Film Festival closing ceremony red carpet. In my final wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival I would love to see Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva bring two gorgeous Armani Prive gowns to life on the red carpet. Over the course of my wishes for this years Venice Film Festival I’ve picked 32 looks from Armani so far for stars promoting films, jury members, and guests and these last two bring that total to 34. I am definitely expecting that, as in the last two years, Armani will dominate the red carpet. Eugenia can deliver some major fashion moments on the red carpet so I picked this blue organza detailed column gown which features intricate red beading from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture collection. I feel like Eugenia knows how to deliver statuesque moments on the red carpet and she would make sure this look is a truly exciting fashion moment. Style it with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, deep red lips, a navy Jeffrey Levinson ‘Elina Plus’ rounded clutch, a pair of midnight blue Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and a selection of major Van Cleef & Arpels jewels including simple white diamond and sapphire drop earrings, a statement art deco inspired white diamond and sapphire cuff bracelet, and a large princess cut sapphire and white diamond cocktail ring and I know that Eugenia would slink down the red carpet in full glam. The second look is one I’ve been wanting to see on the red carpet since it was first presented. I LOVE this sunset orange Armani Prive Spring 2017 Couture one shoulder column gown. It needs a red carpet moment and I think that Eugenia would be able to make it the major fashion moment I know it can be especially if styled with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a gold metallic leather Roger Vivier crystal buckle detail clutch, a pair of strappy gold metallic leather Roger Vivier ankle strap sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 fire opal, citrine, white diamond, and ruby paisley drop earrings.
The 2020 Venice Film Festival will open on Wednesday September 2, 2020 and runs through Saturday September 12, 2020. You can see all my Venice Film Festival wishes here.
