The Only Venice Film Festival Looks You Need to See

The Venice Film Festival is to Italy as the Academy Awards are to Hollywood—a glamorous red carpet affair in honour of cinema, complete with gorgeous gowns. However, unlike the Oscars, the 11-day Italian event brings together an eclectic range of influencers, from critically acclaimed actresses (Kirsten Dunst!) to TV’s top talent (Lena Dunham!) and major models (Constance Jablonski!). The result? A slew of jaw-dropping fashion moments you can’t miss.
