This week, Style Watch goes international as we follow Hollywood stars to France for the American Film Festival and to Italy for the Venice Film Festival.
The couture collections began trickling down into the wardrobes of Hollywood’s greatest this week. Cate Blanchett continued to promote her latest movie, Blue Jasmine, at the American Film Festival in Deauville, France, wearing a fun and flowy gown from Dior’s Fall 2013 Couture collection. She made another appearance at the festival in an elegant midi-length cream lace number from Armani Privé. Actress extraordinaire Dakota Fanning was also spotted in a couture gown at the premiere of Night Movies. She opted for a midnight-blue, sequin-embellished gown from Elie Saab, which played off her pale complexion beautifully.
On the other side of the Atlantic, celebrities stepped out on the red carpet of the 70th Venice Film Festival in shorter hems and sleeveless frocks. Carey Mulligan chose a black-and-white, mod-inspired Miu Miu dress and T-strap sandals, while Australian star Mia Wasikowska opted for an ankle-length Proenza Schouler dress and sandals in the same monochrome palette. While both actresses steered clear of bright colors and heavy makeup, Sandra Bullock’s tricolor Alex Perry body-con dress made a louder noise – in all the right ways.
