Venice Film Festival: Best and Worst Dressed Days One and Two

The Venice Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday with an opening ceremony before the premiere of Gravity in 3D, starring the ever-desirable George Clooney and actress and producer Sandra Bullock. Day two was dominated by women as the Italian picture Via Castellana Bandiera was screened, which stars a wholly female cast. Australian production Tracks was also showcased; the true story of Robyn Davidson's 200km journey across the Australian desert. Let's take a look at the fashion from the first two days. 

Best Dressed: 

Natalia Borges

Model and face of Garnier Fructis Natalia Borges had the best outfit of the night as she combined two of my favourite things: clashing prints and leather. I was in awe of this Fausto Puglisi creation, which combines monochrome with plaid and a leather top. Combining it with chunky, multiple-buckle heels and an over sized ruby Shorouk necklace made for the perfect look. Blown away!

Carey Mulligan

English rose Carey Mulligan looked super sophisticated in Miu Miu yesterday. I love the navy colour, the cut is modest and the collar gives a cute element. She jazzed up an otherwise plain look by donning quirky sunglasses. Go girl. 

Francesca Cavallin

Two things are perfect about this outfit: the sheer element, as it carries the piece, and the colour is exquisite too. We really don't see enough shades of purple on the red carpet and I was very excited when Italian actress Cavallin stepped out in this Barbara Casasola creation. The two-tone element makes it truly unique and the long sleeves are extremely flattering.

Michelle Dockery

I love that both Michelle Dockery and Carey Mulligan don't need a drop of fake bake to look amazing- it's a breath of fresh air to see a natural look in Hollywood. The Downton star wore a bright rouge Miu Miu mini dress. Simple,but completely complimenting, I love her sleek bob and simple clutch with black heels. 

Fiammetta Cicogna

I can't explain how much I love this shade of green on Cicogna's floaty gown. The loose fit made the dress positively Grecian and her simple stilettos and side plait meant nothing detracted from her fabulous dress. 

Sandra Bullock 

American star Sandra Bullock went colourful in this Alex Perry piece for the first day photocall. The fruitsalad shades are striking and totally flattering, and I always respect those who feel comfortable moving away from the monochrome trend. 



Worst Dressed: 

Marina Ripa di Meana

The Gravity premiere definitely got more exciting when Marina Ripa di Meana strolled in. WHY oh WHY does she have a bird cage on her head?! no words. This is god-awful, possibly the worst dressed person EVER. 

Eva Riccobono 

This piece might be an Armani Prive, but it definitely resembles a giant doily. Riccobono wore the dress for a photocall, but it might as well have been a wedding shoot. EW. 

Mia Wasikowska

Reserved actress Mia Wasikowska disappointed me in this painfully simple Nina Ricci fishtail gown. The neckline is unflattering and her up do does nothing for her face, sorry Mia! 

Ksenia Rappoport 

Again, the simplicity of this dress is why I put Rappoport's dress on the worst dressed list. The midnight blue is too safe, and definitely a colour that has been worn out on the red carpet. I am not a fan of strapless dresses either- they give the impression that the gown is slipping down.
