The Most Memorable Looks From The Venice Film Festival Red Carpet

From Wednesday August 31 to Saturday September 10, 2022, the illustrious Venice Film Festival will descend into the seaside city for another glitzy and glamorous affair, picking up from Cannes Film Festival last month. In the event’s second year since returning from COVID, all the brilliance of years gone-by is set to return with a full-scale, at capacity affair.

The annual Venice Film Festival is one of the oldest festivals with a rich history both inside the theatre and on the red carpet. It’s where Salma Hayek was catapulted to worldwide fame with the premiere of Frida in 2002, where she chose to wear a sheer knee-length lace dress with bell sleeves and her tiny black thong just visible from underneath the fabric.

Then there was Kate Hudson who just a year later walked the red carpet in a bump-baring two piece Chanel set to the premiere of Le Divorce. The actress walked so Rihanna could run. Throughout the years the French fashion house continued to reinvent the dress code in Venice with Keira Knightley wearing a perfectly prim and pretty blush strapless gown before Kristen Stewart opted for a silky pants and baby doll dress for Spencer in 2021.

Lady Gaga made her debut to the film industry for A Star Is Born in the most fitting way; wearing a voluminous Valentino haute couture gown at the 2018 event. It would later prove to be just a prelude to her awards season style. And Zendaya in Balmain? She needs no introduction.
