It’s that time of the year when celebrities are gracing red carpets with their presence giving us inspiration for how to dress like the rich and famous. The Venice Film Festival is another chance to see what’s trendy on our favorite celebrities and what we can’t possibly see on anyone else except them. It’s a perfect time to feast your eyes on luxury and style.
The red carpet event started with a runway show by Dolce and Gabbana. Some sources reveal that Dolce and Gabbana released a scandalous advert in 2018 that made fun of international cultures resulting in the brand being boycotted by the younger generation of fans.
The red carpet however still saw appearances of celebrities wearing the brand as they were eager to show off their collections. But this runway show wasn’t Venice's main attraction though, the major eye-catcher was watching the celebrities simply exist as their glamorous selves in the city. Everyone important was present at this festival, from actors to singers, including the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Vin Diesel, Doja Cat, Christian Bale, and Jennifer Hudson.
Most times you know you can’t keep up with dressing like a celebrity but these make you want to try as hard as possible. You should have seen Dame Helen in her gorgeous custom-made seafoam green-colored Dolce and Gabbana frock. The actress came looking like an elegant creature out of the water and she wore a matching headband alongside the outfit which was reminiscent of the '60s.
Then there was the movie director Chloe Zhao who possibly did the complete opposite of the full glamor Helen had. The director came in her usual effortless style. She had on a long floral gown that reached the floor and wore a Fjällräven Kanken backpack on it like she was returning to the classroom. She’s the type to give you the impression that being a celebrity can also come with a very simple life.
Speaking of simplicity, stars like Cynthia Erivo had no simple plans. The actress made her entrance in a custom-made Versace dress with a high slit and deep neckline, which was a complete overhaul of the outfit she had on when she alighted from the ferry wearing oversized sunglasses, a Janet Jackson shirt, and baggy cut-out jeans with leopard print flat sneakers. She went unexpectedly from slightly boyish streetwear to a full-on dinner-ready classy glam outfit.
A sight no one would ever forget is what the Brazilian actress Barbara Paz gave to our eyes at the festival. She wore a huge gas mask as a face mask that was connected to a potted plant that she carried as a backpack on her back. Promoters of green living would love this style since she brought the air of the Amazon with her to breathe.
On Instagram, she had written, “The Amazon is the lung of the world and humanity has the right to breathe.” The rest of her outfit was a suit by Gucci and accessories from Adriana and Luciana Toledo
