The aim of the Festival is to raise awareness and promote international cinema in all its forms as art, entertainment and as an industry, in a spirit of freedom and dialogue. One section is devoted to enhance the restoration works on classic films as a contribution towards a better understanding of the history of cinema in particolar to the advantage of young audiences.
A-list celebrities show up not only to promote their new films, but also to deliver strong style moments and work with top stylists to showcase the best creations from the new ready-to-wear and couture runways. It’s just as much a spectacle for fashion lovers as it is for film buffs. As such, Vogue is rounding up all the best looks from the film festival in one place.
Started off on August 30th, the Venice Film Festival had lots of buzzy motion pictures making their debut throughout the following fourteen days — meaning Hollywood’s top ability were all there. On our radar? Blonde’s Ana de Armas, Bones and All’s Timothée Chalamet, Tár’s Cate Blanchett, and Background noise Turner-Smith, among numerous others. Turner-Smith was starting off on a particularly impressive foot wearing a Raisa Vanessa’s blue scaled down dress with a bordered hemline.
At a similar debut soirée, Julianne Moore — who was filling in as the festival’s jury president this year — sparkled in an Alaïa confetti-print outfit with a calfskin heart-formed bustier, while Tessa Thompson wore a dark tulle Rodarte coat dress.
