With the Venice Film Festival this week and the rescheduled Met Gala on the horizon—mark your calendars for September 13—fashion fans are in for a real treat this month. It's still early in the festival, but celebrities have wasted no time turning up in absolutely stunning red carpet outfits

One look that caught my eye, in particular, was Dakota Johnson's sheer number by Gucci. The dress has more crystals than any gown in recent memory and also features unique padded shoulders and a light-as-air fringed cape. Scroll down to see what Johnson, as well as Cynthia Erivo and the siblings Gyllenhaal, wore to the 2021 Venice Film Festival.
