Darlings, Naomi’s unveiling a new ensemble every eight hours or so for the duration of the Venice Film Festival, so if we don’t get to work cleaning out these Style Files, we’ll be stuck with a backlog of 40 Naomi looks by Monday.
We may be exaggerating slightly.

BEATING CATE BLANCHETT AT HER OWN GAME.
We didn’t think Miss Naomi had it in her, to be blunt. We love this look. The jacket’s slightly too big and we kind wish the blouse was either more substantial or stripped a bit more bare. But there’s a certain way to wear a wrinkled white linen suit in high summer and come off looking super-chic. She pretty much nailed it. Love the metallic gold pumps as an unexpected touch.

Yes. Okay. It does look like a pile of Post-It notes. And if you didn’t think so before, you can’t stop seeing it now. But even if we all have to resist the urge to peel pieces off so we can write down an order confirmation number or date reminder, she still looks pretty great in it. If nothing else, it’s a bubblegum pink gown that manages to be chic and eye-catching.

Ma Ingalls walking a Paris runway. She comes remarkably close to making so much of this work, from the naive style to the pale pink color, but the placement of the embellishments lets her down. They’re too hard and discordant a note. And the shoulders look weird.
