Venice Film Festival 2022: THE SON Star Laura Dern in Gabriela Hearst and Armani Privé

Posted on September 08, 2022

Laura Dern has a new film with Anthony Hopkins and Hugh Jackman hitting the festival scene (The Son, directed by Florian Zeller, who led Hopkins to an Oscar win with the apparently similarly themed The Father two years ago) and for the Venice Film Festival launch, she made some notable and unexpected style choices. We thank her for this opportunity to be judgmental again.




Our main issue with both of these looks is that we don’t think either of them entirely suit her, but in this case, our secondary issue is that we don’t think it’s a particularly good dress for this setting. Crocheted dresses can be really cute and stylish, but they don’t necessarily pair well with dressy heels and standard red carpet styling. We’re struggling to like this dress, but we think with the right kind of boho styling, worn in the right sort of casual-dressy setting, it could work. In related news, whoever convinced her to shove her poor feet into those shoes should be reprimanded at once.





This is honestly a pretty great look, but it feels like such a throwback to the ’80s that we half think it probably should’ve gone to someone who wasn’t around to wear it the first time it was on trend. We love the idea of the jacket over the dress, but we wish the blues matched a little better. Still, she does look great, even if we tend to think the style isn’t as good for her as the kind of structured and tailored pieces she usually favors.
