Venice Film Festival: The best fashion on show
As the 79th installment of the Venice Film Festival draws to a close, there's been no shortage of celebrity fashion moments thanks to premieres like Noah Baumbach's "White Noise," starring Greta Gerwig and Adam Driver, the buzzy "Don't Worry Darling" directed by Olivia Wilde featuring Harry Styles and Florence Pugh, as well as "Blonde" -- Netflix's Marilyn Monroe biopic with Ana de Armas.
Over the week, we've seen Timothée Chalamet in a now-viral backless Haider Ackerman look at the "Bones And All" premiere, as well as Florence Pugh's much anticipated red carpet appearance in an dazzling hand-sequined Valentino gown for the screening of "Don't Worry Darling." On Thursday, Armas wore a classical custom-made, hand-pleated pink mousseline dress from Louis Vuitton to receive an 14-minute standing ovation for her performance as Marilyn Monroe.
The festival, which concludes this weekend, is the oldest event of its kind having been founded in 1932 -- and due in part to the romantic backdrop of the floating city, is one of the most visually arresting. Paparazzi shots of guests arriving by private water taxis conjure images of Old Hollywood glamor, and red carpet moments have followed suit — with many A-listers opting for archival couture over recent runway looks. From actor Julianne Moore's embellished Valentino cape to model Mariacarla Boscono's revealing Jean Paul Gaultier gown, there has been an abundance of high-octane outfits this year.
