Venice Film Festival Red Carpet – Day 1

Posted on September 01, 2011

Darlings, let’s do a little rundown of some of the more notable looks from Day One of the Venice Film Festival, shall we?

Diane Kruger in Elie Saab CoutureDiane Kruger in Elie Saab Fall 2011 Couture

Very pretty. We liked the neckline better on the runway version, though. This is the kind of dress that, for us, is more than the sum of its parts. Breaking it down, we might complain about the washed out color or the heavy use of glittery elements, but somehow it all comes together in a way that’s really appealing. Her makeup is very, very pretty; possibly the best we’ve seen on her. Nice call on the low-key jewelry and ever-so-slightly unkempt hair, too. Prevents her from looking too princess-y while still looking like a movie star.

Cindy Crawford in Roberto CavalliCindy Crawford in Roberto Cavalli

It’s a dramatic dress and she’s just the gal to rock it. We have no doubt that she’s sporting diamonds on the ears and wrist, but the pieces are flashy, and when you combine them with the sexy gown, big hair, and (we’re sorry, it has to be said) face that hasn’t quite settled in yet, the effect is less than elegant. Not tacky so much as just really showy.

It’s a really great color (although we’re not convinced it’s her color) and the dress has a really great shape. HOWEVER…

Come on, do we really have to point out the elephant in the room? Or in this case, in her bosom?

We love that word. “Bosom.” No one ever says it anymore. Anyway.

The point is, that pearl detail is one of those fashiony things that just sets us off. It’s not just that we don’t like it; we think it looks utterly stupid. It’s actually designed in such a way as to look like she drunkenly got her pearls caught in her skirt on the last trip to the ladies room and is stumbling around with it hiked up. We said yesterday that we like her brand of earthy chic, but even we have to admit that’s mom hair on the red carpet. Now moms, don’t hate. It’s a perfectly lovely cut and it suits her, but it just doesn’t look red carpet enough to us, especially in a gown.

        I was thinking that Cindy Crawford and Janice Dickinson must have the same plastic surgeon. There’s something creepily similar about their eyes. I hope Cindy lays off the surgery sooner than Janice did (or didn’t).

          At least Cindy didn’t get the duck lips with her lift.

          I’m in Los Angeles and there are way too many women of a certain age who were actors/models who pay for the look like they’ve been sucking a pool drain: ugh.

          Saw one yesterday, skin pulled tight like skeletor on her face and those horrifying duck lipss. Up close. Ick.  While she was talking to me, but had to force myslef not to turn away.

        Really, you think so?  I’m looking at the area around her eyes and she’s got lines and crow’s feet.  i was just thinking to myself how natural that seems to look in comparison to so many other actresses.

        I have her coloring (maybe a tad fairer than her) and that color she’s wearing probably made her look like she’s had sea sickness for 3 days straight. My bet is that her makeup person went apeshit with the bronzer to offset the horrid sallow tone her skin took on when she popped on that dress.

      Diane really should have stuck with the fare more interesting bodice/neckline from the runway version. She still looks great, but I don’t understand why she wanted to reduce the unique high fashion quotient to up the prom dress factor.

      Cindy…I just don’t understand what’s going on with her face. The dress is fine.

      I think Marisa looks stunning. I don’t think it’s the best color on her, but it’s striking and different, as is the whole look. The pearl detail doesn’t bother me, and I actually like the hair and make-up look. She looks confident and sexy without being too underdone, and I think it suits the drama of the dress well.

            I’ve always wanted Anne Bancroft hair.  I decidedly want Anne Bancroft at 70 hair which was all flattering and age-appropriate but never aging.  And no blue-hair perms.

          ditto. It’s a great color and cut for her. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big MT fan, and the woman is aging really well, but sometimes she does border on skank/ Housewives of New Jersey territory. Her hair here is very classy.

        Right on Marisa. I was really loving the beaded accent until T-Lo put that image in my head and now I just really don’t know. I think the lower line is very flattering. The issue is with the strap on the other side. If that had been attached to the bodice, it wouldn’t evoke a drunk bathroom incident. However, it would be much more boring that way. And is boring ever a good thing (if you are not a royal)?

        I totally agree with you on Marisa. I love the whole look. The pearly thing is weird, but maybe a little fun, and I’m going to totally disagree with TLO on the hair – I think it’s edgy and pretty.

          I agree with your agreeing with zaftiguana. I think Marisa looks perfect. Without the pearls, we’d be complaining that the dress is pretty but boring. Also love her hair and don’t understand why it’s not red carpet appropriate.

          You know, at first I thought I agreed with TLo on the hair, but now that I think about it, I never really like the way she looks when her hair is up. I just don’t think it suits her. This hairstyle is soft and frames her face beautifully. It is appropriately zhuzhed for the red carpet and it looks shiny and healthy.

      There. Are you happy now?

      Anyway. I agree with you completely about Diane’s dress. I would have preferred the runway version. I don’t think the straps are the best look.  Cindy?  Honey, jsut plain no.  It gives of the unmistakable ‘trying to hard” vibe. And Marisa?  I love the dress but that wacky my necklace got sewn in here and I didn’t have time to get it out” look is not working for me.  Maybe its the proportions of the beads.

      Diane Krueger — Very Princess Bride hair, I approve.  I like the original neckline better, too.  I wonder if maybe there was a problem with it ON HER, though, because her instincts are usually really good.

      Cindy Crawford — God, I hope that face settles in better than it looks now or she got screwed.  And frankly, having your face skin that taut while your neck is showing age always looks a little weird — women need to learn to go for the youngest THEY can look, not the youngest anyone can.  The dress… eh, it’s okay.  It’s nothing all that special and it looks like the same red dress that’s been around since the 80′s.  On someone 22, they could get by with it just being generic but on her, because of how long she’s been around and the very 80′s styling (big hair, flashy jewelry), it’s very dated.

      Marissa Tomei — Not a good color for her or a great many other women.  The pearls are stupid, you nailed that one.  Also, it’s outdoors, in August, in Italy… the long sleeves look very uncomfortable.

      Why did Cindy Crawford get a Janice Dickinson face transplant? How bad could her (slightly ) aging face have been? Anyway, they put the eyes back on crooky.

        It makes me sick, because Cindy Crawford is such a beautiful woman. I’m sure she was aging beautifully, but for some reason these women just won’t allow themselves to age naturally. :(

      Is Diane Kruger trying to push some remake of “The Princess Bride”? Because otherwise, this look is just full-on Barbie.

      Diane Kruger for the win–although I also prefer the original top of the gown. She looks pretty and sexy at the same time. Nicely done!

      I like Cindy’s dress, but the Michele Bachmann surgery is freakin’ me OUT. 

      Love Marissa to pieces, but that gown is totally Blanche Devereaux.  It’s much too old for her, and the pearl “thing” is just dopey.  Agree with TLo–looks as if she couldn’t dress herself properly.

      • Anonymous

        I also immediately thought of Michele Bachmann.  If the dress were pink and the jewels were pearls she would have Michele’s red carpet look nailed down.

      OK I won’t hate.  I liked her hair but you are right.  It’s not red carpet.  I hate her dress.  It looks like she came back from the bathroom and got her pearls caught in her panty-hose.

      I am of two minds with Marisa’s dress: Part of me think the designer was doing that thing of trying to hard to be different, just for the sake of being different (and talked about). But another part of me thinks this suits her because it’s kooky, and she comes across as having a kooky personality (and I mean that in a good way). I would have chosen a different color for her though.

          I think it’s going to take darker skin color but with the right undertone.  I think Tomei can wear it, but that yellowy greeny thing is just not for the paler skinned among us.  I would like to see Zoe Saldana try it out. 

        • MilaXX

          Anyone with a warmer skin tone but no yellow undertones could rock that color and look great. I know she did it because of the pearl detail, but I think pearls don’t go with this dress or this color.

      Diane Kruger looks pretty, but I wouldn’t go to the grocery store with my hair looking like that, much less the red carpet.  She doesn’t have to do it up like a pageant contestant, but a little effort would go a long way.

    • Anonymous

      I really don’t care for any of these.  There’s something very odd about the bodice of Diane’s gown.  It broadens out at the sides and makes and throws off the shape.  The original gown as better.  I also don’t like the messy hair with this, but I get the point about anything too formal sending it into princess territory so I don’t know how else to handle it.

      I don’t like anything about Cindy’s look, but I’m perfectly willing to admit that it could be because I don’t like her at all.  Her face looks weird, too tight.  I suppose that settles out, but I don’t know enough about those kind of vanity procedures to say.  It’s all just too much.

      I disagree that the color of Marissa’s dress is a great one.  I think it’s awful.  I don’t think anyone can wear that color.  And the pearls are just weird.

      So yeah, a total bust on the like front from me.  Not that anyone was holding their breath on what I thought.  But these three did not impress.  What else ya’ got, my dears?

      I agree with you on all points on all three women.  I like Kruger’s look notwithstanding my general aversion to this *color* scheme; I don’t tend to care about facial work because it’s a fact of life for these women, but Crawford’s face is kind of a shame at this stage (I’m guessing it’s a stage); and I really hate that pearl-necklace effect, which is drawing all of the attention away from Ms. Tomei’s otherwise really good look, here. 

    • MilaXX

      I like Diane’s look & agree the neckline on the model is prettier.
      I don’t mind the dress on Marissa, but HATE the pearl detail. This dress needs jewlery to play it up (once those pesky pearls are removed) and she needs dressier hair. I like the green in the bracelet and ring, a drop earring with that or a coordinating color would have been nice.
      Cindy looks very 1980′s Love Boat. She looks good and has a slamming body, but the look feels dated.

      I usually agree with you two, however today I must take exception. Diane’s hair looks terrible.  You complain about movie stars not wearing jewelry on the RC, yet you called Cindy showy.  I think she looks great. Marisa’s dress is flattering and interesting.

        Yeah, color issues aside, the dress looks a bit “mature” for her. I know she’s quite a bit over forty, but this dress just looks kind of dumpy on her. I’m not even all that wild about that weird pearl thing happening either.

      Huh. And here I was thinking that Marisa’s hair was perfectly casual chic for that dress, and that she looked pretty in that color (at least on my monitor) and that I liked the quirky pearl detail and her jewelry choices. But then, I liked Cindy’s choices as well…including the face. Guess that’s why I don’t have a fashion blog.

      Why, oh why, did Cindy Crawford get a face lift? She looks crooked. I wish people would stop fucking with ageing and instead just try to do it gracefully. For certain events, like fattened jaw lines and turkey necks, I can see a few tucks; but, c’mon, she was gorgeous and now she looks plastic.

        I know! I’m kind of taking it (irrationally) personally. Like we all had this unspoken deal with Cindy Crawford that she would be a natural and earthy gal who would never get a facelift. Such a bummer.

          I’m also kind of surprised at how annoyed I am about the whole thing.  I think it’s because she’s been the down to earth Midwestern “every woman” (albeit supermodel) who talked about Botox scaring her (even though she’s had it for years) and not changing her face with plastic surgery as recently as last year…and all of a sudden…we have Plastic Cindy.  It feels almost like she wasn’t being authentic, or that she gave up?  Anyway, yeah…I’m surprised at how let down I feel too, even though it’s not like we pinky swore on no face lifts.

      I saw Marisa’s dress yesterday, from the left profile, and I thought her pearls were just off-kilter and over the right boob.  Now that I see what’s actually going on-yikes.  I sorta like her in the dress…minus the weird necklace thing and the hair.  I don’t dislike the hair, I just don’t think it’s working here.

      I thought the same thing about Dian’es dress.  I like the runway neckline better.  But she looks good.

    • Anonymous

      I think Diane Kruger’s dress makes her look really wide across the shoulders, like an Olympic swimmer or something. It is a pretty dress, but I’m not digging the way it looks on her.

      Cindy Crawford’s dress and accessories are great. I don’t mind the showiness. I am sad if she had work done to her face. She’s supposed to the one that ages gracefully! Isn’t she?

      Marissa needs to take mulligan and start over. That color is really bad on her, and the dress detail is a big “huh?. Looks like the make up people went overboard on the bronzer so she wouldn’t look sallow, but her face just looks dirty.  And yes, the hair could be better.

    • Anonymous

      I tend to agree with some of the other posters.  At least Marisa”s hair looks kempt.  Kruger looks like she whipped off her trucker cap and fluffed.  You can fluff all you like, but you still have hat head.

      Oh, and I like the original neckline better, even if it didn’t sow as much boobage.  And Marisa’s bosom would have looked much better without the pearl treatment.  What does it say about my issues that I think pearls like that remind me of my grandma?

      The Elie Saab dress does look better with the original neckline, but Diane Kruger looks beautiful in her dress.  Cindy Crawford’s face looks like a Cindy Crawford mask.  Marisa Tomei looks very mother of the bride in that yellow gown.

      Cindy may have crow’s feet as aforementioned, but she also looks like she got punched in the eye two weeks ago and the bruise is gone, but the swelling is still there (on camera left, her right eye). Maybe a brow lift.
      She also looks like she got her lips injected, as well as a general facelift as well. Cindy, honey, I know you’re a supermodel but show us your good ol’ fashion natural beauty. You’re starting to look like a Housewife of (insert city/county/yuppy district).
      Diane Kruger looks beautiful as always, but has she always been that..busty? This type of look really suits her though.
      Cindy, study Marisa Tomei’s face. That is how you do beauty with age. I really don’t like that dress though. I’m thinking people with Kelly Rowland’s skin tone would look stunning in that. I also kinda wish she lost the sleeves.

      Somehow Marisa’s pearl thing looks more ‘intentional’ on the model…I’m not sure how to explain it.  On Marisa it looks like it’s hiking the dress up or something.

      Diane looks beautiful, and I’m glad she dispensed with her Swiss Miss hair for this occasion.

      Diane looks beautiful and Cindy looks amazing.  What does it mean that I didn’t even see the pearl decoration on Marisa’s dress?  I thought that maybe her bosoms needed lifting.  But yeah now that I see it the pearl decoration does nothing to enhance the dress, in fact it takes something away from it.

      This Fall, in the role of a lifetime, Marisa Tomei IS Colonel Mustard.

      Disagree. I think Marisa Tomei looks wonderful, absolutely wonderful. It’s a terrific dress in an interesting color, I like the weirdly placed pearls and it fits her beautifully. I think her hair is lovely, too. Cindy’s dress is all wrinkly around the torso. I hate the butcher job on Kruger’s Saab dress. The runway version neckline is much, much more sophisticated and special.

      I wish Marisa (you spelled her name wrong above) would hire a stylist. She is gorgeous but makes the worse choices. This makes her look 60 years old.

      I thought Cindy Crawford looked like Janice Dickinson, except for the mole. Her face used to look sweet. Oh well, at least i wasn’t thinking about Michele Bachman like so many of you!

      Cindy Crawford’s face is clearly the answer to a every cosmetic surgery blind item in the last few months.

      Marisa, Jody Foster called. She wants her “Silence of the Lambs” hair back.

      What is going on with Diane’s leg and foot in that first photo?  I’m sure it’s just the way the dress falls, but it looks like her leg is twisted in an impossible position.  She looks gorgeous anyway.

      That is NOT the dress for Marissa Tomei.

      It needs to be worn, I think, by someone with a tiny little shape.  This makes her middle look thick, and the color’s horrendous.  At least against the red carpet.

      I think Cindy looks fine, and I hate the color on Diane’s dress.  Though I love the bust detailing.

      That’s some pretty fabulous mom hair, though. If I get mom hair, I might go for that brand of mom hair.

      What the hell happened to Crawford’s face?

      I want my mom hair to look like that.  Being a midwestern Mom, I don’t see a lot of red carpet action, so I’d be ok with it.

      its a damn shame when beauty is your WHOLE thing and then it fades – and every attempt tp recapture it just bites you back. Fair enough – now that I think about it.

      You know what?  I think Cindy Crawford looks amazing.  I pulled up several photos of her in her “prime” and set them side by side to the face her and I don’t see what others are claiming to see.  Her brows have always been more prominent, esp the left.   I think this is a bit of a jealous “oh, please tell me that gorgeous bitch has had work so I can feel better about me” syndrome.  That’s my opinion and I am sticking by it.  Crucify at will…..

      I didn’t recognize Cindy Crawford at all – and I had her Pepsi poster in my room growing up. Wrinkles are better than morphing into someone else!

      I think Marisa’s stylist hates her.

      I thought the exact same thing about the pearls on Marisa Tomei’s dress. And I think Cindy Crawford probably looks stunning if you pull back the camera to, say, Cleveland. Up close? No. But far, far away, the color is nice and you can’t see the face problems.

      Never thought I’d see the day, but Cindy Crawford’s officially a Monet.

      You all are smoking a lot of crack this evening. Kruger looks BO-ring! snooze fest. bleh
      Cindy can still rock that dress and it’s just a bad photo of her, nothing else.
      Marisa’s dress is fabulous. Love the color and TLo, come one, the pearls and neckline look lovely and elegant, not confusing.
      What is wrong with you people, let’s pull it together for tomorrow shall we. It’s going to be a busy day.

      I thought that was her necklace until I saw it was attached. But lovely color. I like the runway version of Diane’s dress more, but she always looks beautiful no matter what.

      I thought Cindy Crawford was Michelle Bachman for a second!! Yikes!! I think her plastic surgeon did her eyes crooked. Such a beautiful woman, a shame that she cannot age gracefully and naturally. Ugly plastic face now.

      I actually like the pearl play on the bodice, but (in addition to it just not being her dress) they switched up the overlay/underlay sides, completely throwing off the balance of the look. On Marisa, both the dress wrap and the overlay of pearls is happening on the same side, giving her this lopsided effect. I don’t think it was her dress to begin with, but that error just throws everything into a tizzy. And her face is a different color than her neck. I mean, come on, makeup 101.

      I think that by changing the neckline, Kruger’s dress has strayed into pageant gown territory. Not liking the change. And I’m sorry, but post-work, Crawford looks like a drag queen.

      I hate Diane Kruger’s hair, and that gown just looks insipid to me. Cindy, Jesus. I really hope her face settles; right now she looks like a stroke victim. I was startled by Marisa Tomei’s dress, as I thought she had got her Pop-It beads stuck in her bra. Triple threat: they all look horrible.

      Any hint when Rose McGowan’s will start to settle? I’ve been waiting, but she certainly hasn’t (for work).

      Marisa. Girl has some serious bronzer issues.

    • narita_rayna

      ya know – i could have gone for the marisa tomei dress if she wore it with longer hair.  the proportions would have been more balanced & it would have completed the earthy-chic look.  but i spy some peeptoe platforms poking out under that skirt & she’s got to ditch those fast.
