Feathers! Sequins! Ruffles! If it’s even slightly flamboyant, you can bet your bottom Euro that the Venice Film Festival red carpet has it. The 76th annual event kicked off on 28 August and will run until 7 September, and although it’s only been a couple of days, we’ve already seen the likes of big A-listers such as Scarlett Johansson, Liv Tyler and Catherine Deneuve in attendance.
As usual, this festival isn’t just reserved for actors—there are also international models gracing the red carpet, making it an even more glamorous affair. So far, the ultimate showstoppers have included Iman, who stunned in a blue, white and red feathered Valentino gown, and Billie Piper, who looked exquisite in Erdem. Other notable looks have come from model Madalina Doroftei, who wore a oversized Tinkerbell-inspired look, and Candice Swanepoel in a slinky gold Etro gown.
