GOWNS, darlings! Diamonds! Uncomfortable shoes! And all on an international red carpet! What more could we ask for? Sure, we only know who about half of the people featured here are (if that), but all that matters to us is that they’re famous, they’re glamorous, and they’re standing on a red carpet in the best Italian alta moda looks they could snag. Let’s judge!
Alice Diop in Louis Vuitton
She is extremely well suited to that color, which isn’t one of our faves. The bodice and the skirt are gorgeous but we don’t like the way they marry at the waist.
Anna Ferzetti in Giorgio Armani
The trim looks oddly unfinished and overdone at the same time.
Bianca Balti in Ermanno Scervino
Can’t argue with a bit of that. The pendant makes the look.
Bianca Brandolini d’Adda in Schiaparelli
Gorgeously elegant, but we don’t love that center seam. That pile of diamonds is helping a lot.
Caterina Murino in Armani Privé
Pretty and uncomplicated. Perfectly styled.
Charlotte Rampling (in Courrèges) and Liliana Cavani
We love the idea of Charlotte’s pendant and keyhole working together, but it’s really hard to pull off. Still, it’s a wonderfully dramatic look for her.
Elisa Visari in Giorgio Armani
It’s hard to argue that she looks anything but gorgeous here, even if we do think the dress’s graphic is weird and distracting.
Jane Campion in Christian Dior
The sandals are fantastic with that suit. They really make the look.
Madisin Rian in Armani Privé
It’s a pretty dress until you get to the hem. That contrasting print isn’t needed at all. Still, we love the color story here.
Mariacarla Boscono in Dolce & Gabbana
Well, you can’t fault it for being undramatic. The bodice is wildly overdesigned and we can’t help thinking she needs a covered basket to complete the picture.
Marta Sierra in Emporio Armani
It’s interesting, but only in a “Why is she wearing two dresses” kind of way.
Li Meng in Georges Chakra Couture
Stunning. Don’t love the cutout but the styling is fantastic.
Paola Turani in Zuhair Murad
It’s simple and perhaps not the freshest design, but again, it’s hard to argue with the results. Maybe we’re just feeling kindly about it because we finally have some gownery back in our lives, but really, most of the international film festivals call for exactly this kind of straight-up, uncomplicated, elegant glamour.
Shu Qi in Alberta Ferretti
Such a great twist on the ladytux. The styling gives it a slight edge, which really works for her.
Sveva Alviti in Ermanno Scervino
Aw, remember Barbiecore, darlings? We would have been sick of seeing pink by now if the red carpets hadn’t shut down at the height of the Barbie promo tour, but now it just feels sweetly nostalgic. Personally, we don’t love the design of that bodice and we think the matchy sandals are a mistake.
