From Gwyneth Paltrow’s blush pink confection at the 2011 Venice Film Festival to Sandra Bullock’s sizzling scarlet J. Mendel gown at 2013’s affair, the red carpet at the Italian cinematic extravaganza is one fashionable fête. Look for this year’s jury member, Diane Kruger, to retain her sartorial crown in a parade of drop-dead-gorgeous dresses from fashion’s biggest designers.
The festival’s guest list reads like a whose who of show business elite, and fashion fans will be delighted to know that it's packed with some of Hollywood’s most stylish stars. New mom Keira Knightley might be in attendance for her first major red-carpet event since welcoming her daughter, Edie, in May. Also, Kristen Stewart will premiere her science fiction flick Equals, while avant-garde devotee Tilda Swinton will attend the premiere of her thriller A Bigger Splash.
Diane’s fellow jury member, Elizabeth Banks, is known for rocking feminine silhouettes, pops of colour and a menagerie of floral motifs, so expect the Pitch Perfect star to mix things up as she struts into numerous film screenings.
And we can’t forget about the dapper gentlemen! Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt star in Martin Scorsese’s short, The Audition, and keep an eye out for the men of two of the Toronto International Film Festival’s (TIFF) most talked about titles: Eddie Redmayne (The Danish Girl) and Johnny Depp (Black Mass).
