There are several major film festivals throughout the year that attracts cinema’s finest actors, directors, and producers to them. One is the 79th Venice International Film Festival, which takes place from Aug. 31 to Sept. 10. As Hollywood’s top tastemakers, as well as international movie stars, make their way to the dinners, parties, and, of course the red carpet, they’re bringing their outfit A-game. Thus far, the fashion looks at the 2022 Venice Film Festival oscillate between dressy gowns and polished pantsuit sets. Everyone, however, appears to agree on wearing a bevy of dazzling diamond jewelry.
One of the standout dressers at the events is Jodie Turner-Smith (you may know her from movies like Queen & Slim). The actor veered outside of the “pretty princess gown” box when it came to her ensembles as she opted for more sultry mini dresses and eye-catching accessories (please note her amazing opera gloves!). Tessa Thompson, too, flirted with the idea of a sensual outfit but with a ballerina twist: The Westworld star wore a fluffy tulle skirt with a black bralette and cropped jacket. These gorgeous looks are just the beginning, however, as more celebrities are expected to arrive throughout the week for the Venice Film Festival. TZR will track the most memorable ensembles, below, so keep tuning back in for the latest star-studded appearance.
