Venice Film Festival 2022: Jodie Turner-Smith in Gucci at the WHITE NOISE Photocall and Premiere

Posted on September 01, 2022

Jodie Turner-Smith did not come to the Venice Film Festival to play, darlings. To coin a phrase, she came to slay. And she did not come quietly.




Our cliche-ridden opening paragraph was for a reason. We think she’s got a very drag-inspired sense of public style. The looks always switch up, so you never know what you’re going to get from her next. The looks are extremely extra and overdone – for instance, by combining public lingerie with thigh-high lace-up boots AND bicep-length leather gloves AND mismatched dangling earrings AND a massive diamond choker. And like drag, the looks tend to feel a bit like she’s creating a character each time.




If we’re being honest, we think she has a tendency to overdo it on the styling, with a preference to really pile on the accessories until there’s no space left for any new adornments or embellishments. But even if we sometimes think her looks don’t quite embody Voque-cover chicness, we love how exuberant and over-the-top she can be about her fashion. She knows what she can handle and we’ve yet to see an ensemble that made us think the whole thing was a bad choice. Our favorite red carpet looks tend to be the theatrical and exuberant rather than the staid and elegant. But yes, she’s wearing one too many necklaces and the gloves tend to overwhelm the dress.
