Jodie Turner-Smith Wows in a Halter, Cutout Slip Dress at Venice Film Festival
The 79th Venice Film Festival is currently underway, and red carpet looks are front and centre. Filmmakers, actors, models, and pop stars have descended on the Venetian streets to celebrate the best in international cinematic excellence. Among those in attendance catching our attention is actress and Gucci muse Jodie Turner-Smith who glided on the red carpet in a sleek lilac slip dress with cutouts by Et Ochs. She elevated the look with layered necklaces and a simple black clutch.
She later wowed at the “Bardo” premiere wearing an abstract art-inspired gown by Christopher John Rogers. The gown in question is Look 33 from Rogers’s Collection 009 and was inspired by the art of late abstract pioneer Sam Gilliam. Styled by Wayman & Micah, Jodie paired the colourful racerback twill gown with a dazzling diamond choker and complimenting drop earrings. The “Anne Boylen” star has been quite the one to watch this week. From a stunning black sequined Gucci gown with satin neon green opera gloves and a pink lace dress, also by Gucci, with towering white lace-up boots, she’s been dominating red carpet after red carpet. Another memorable look she wore is a sheer red Versace dress with a coordinating Brandon Blackwood bag and contrasting green Kendall Miles plush heels.
Other stars in attendance include Tessa Thompson who stole the show in a blue archival Armani Privé look, Cate Blanchett, Hilary Clinton, and Emma Chamberlin. The Venice Film Festival, considered the oldest festival in the world, will run until Sept. 10. As many acclaimed international films continue to make their debuts, we’re excited to see more of red carpet looks.
