When it comes to getting dressed for the Venice Film Festival, the top celebs and various model hanger-ons seem to be approaching the event from a very provincial point-of-view. From Rebecca Hall‘s choice of a gilded Prada gown and an Armani Privé masterpiece to Amanda Seyfried‘s flirty Valentino frock embellished with red lips, the local pride is strong. However, there is no brand more on display than Alberta Ferretti. Yes, the fashion focus here is undeniably on Italian designers.
Models Izabel Goulart and Isabeli Fontana were both spotted in the brand’s day of the week sweaters—though Goulart wore the accurate day on her sweater, while Fontana seemed to have mixed up the date. Then there was Renata Kuerten, the Brazilian model who wore a delightfully intricate black feathered dress, which proved that an LBD doesn’t have to be boring. Meanwhile, Italian actress Greta Scarano went a very dramatic route with her scarlet Ferretti frock, thanks to a mock neck and a flowing cape of red tulle.
As it turns out, the best way to achieve la dolce vita is to simply slip on an Italian design…and then gracefully step off a gondola to attend the best screenings in The Floating City. Click through to see what everyone at the Venice Film Festival wore on the red carpet.
