Venice Film Festival 2022 Is Here: Ladies of the Red Carpet - A Hand Tailored Suit

Venice Film Festival 2022 Is Here: Ladies of the Red Carpet

The iconic Venice Film Festival returned yesterday for its 79th year of the glamorous event. This year, it is taking place between 31st August to the 10th September 2022 at Venice Lido, where we shall see many films screened and many celebrities take to the red carpets across the days. Already on the first night, we've seen such glamorous looks and statement styles worn by those attending the opening ceremony and the premiere of "White Noise". Here are some of our favourite looks worn by the ladies on the red carpet.

Actress Jodie Turner-Smith's opening ceremony look was one that certainly delivered in glamour and statement, wearing a long-length black embellished Gucci dress that was finished with a contrasting coral ruffled hem. The hem was a gorgeous pop of vibrancy to the gown, paired with a pair of light green silk gloves to echo the gem in the silver necklace. The gown itself was designed with a sharp V-neck and oversized shoulders that were padded to maintain this powerful line and silhouette. With a shorter V-line on the back of the collar, the bodice would feature a subtle element of peplum to the shape, layered over the sheer fabric that continued the embellishments from the bodice, all the way to the hem.

Model Alessandra Ambrosio dazzled in pink as she wear a floating Ermanno Scervino floor-length gown on the red carpet last night. Designed with a soft sweetheart neckline across the top of the dress, the bodice demonstrated the stunning fabric manipulation of the pink fabric through the gathering and draping. The fabric would seem to gather into delicate fabric flowers that fell diagonally across the bodice, whilst a slightly larger matching flower would be included on the centre of the cape's collar. The cloth was arranged to ensure the bodice and skirt of the gown were separate in the way that draping fell, with the bottom of the dress layered and designed with centre thigh-high splits. As the hem draped on the floor, so too did the cape that would gracefully float behind the model as she attended.

Also wearing pink but in a tailored form was film producer Marina Cicogna, who donned a two-piece suit with the sleeves pushed up to elbow length on the shirt-style jacket. The entire suit was constructed from a pink sequined cloth as the jacket detailed a contrasting collar that featured hints of a green/beige tone, possible light blue hues and darker shades of pink to add a subtle statement to the sequins. Four tall single jet pockets were included on the front of the garment as the buttons were hidden in the fastening, further secured with a sequinned fabric belt tie across the waist. The trousers would slightly juxtapose the slight relaxed silhouette to the jacket through it's straight-leg cut, yet the folds of the fabric would mirror this effect.

Continuing the effect of sequinned tailoring was actress Roberta Armani as she wore a navy Giorgio Armani Privè blue jacket and trousers which, through the use of sequins alone, would convey multiple hues of blue to create this multi-tonal outfit. The jacket was constructed with a V-neck that was outlined through more gems and embellishment, as seen outlining the centre front line and hem of the garment too. The shoulders were padded and slightly rounded to create a great line across the top, leading into the dazzling embellished cuffs. The trouser hem would finish in line with the ankles, creating a perfect line to these straight-leg trousers and sitting nicely above the navy heel strap.

Also wearing Giorgio Armani Privè was model Madisin Rian, who looked effortlessly chic for the opening ceremony of the 2022 Venice Film Festival wearing a sleeveless black velvet gown. The straight line across the top of the garment was mirrored through the subtle - yet striking - white piping details that were horizontally designed and continued all the way down to the bottom. The hem would feature a minimal flare to enhance the sophistication of the evening look and, with minimal accessorising, the simplicity of the outfit would be powerful indeed.

Actress Tessa Thompson's red carpet look almost combined futuristic with old glamour, wearing a layered peplum silhouette gown from Giorgio Armani Privè. The bodice itself was sleeveless with a straight line across the top, a light grey or silver in colour and embellished with scattered lace appliqué. The appliqué is also included within the few layers of the peplum hem to add depth and soften the artistic structure of the design. Below the peplum hem is a black sequinned skirt with a mermaid hem sitting just above the ankles to create an overall maxi-length dress. Again, this contrasts the voluminous shape of the bodice above to overall, create a statement look for the event.

Below are some more stunning looks from those who attended yesterday's opening ceremony. Which look was your favourite?
