Benvenuto a the Venice FASHION (?) festival!

01 September 2010

It's the end of summer, it's sunny and hot and it's a cinematic fash-off! We could ONLY be in Italy for the annual Venice film festival. First up, (and how could we produce ANY Grazia fashion articles without her?) a brace, nay, a TRIPTYCH! of gorgeous Jessica Alba ensembles. Running the entire spectrum from casual flat loafers and a jean jacket to full Swan Lake- style red carpet regalia! Just to let you know, fact fans, that Jessica is sporting Valentino Couture in the centre pic and Dolce & Gabanna on the right!

Next up, the very winsome Natalie Portman. She's promoting her film Black Swan, the creepy psychological thriller with the Rodarte-designed costumes, remember?

At a party in honour of Quentin Tarantino, a mob of Italian fashion designers had gathered. Even if we're not sure why they were all at a film festival, we need no excuse to start checking out their finery. Here are Alberta Ferretti and creative directors of Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paulo Picioli giving us all in quick lesson in elegant eveningwear.

Next up, several members of the two fashion dynasties to which Grazia Daily would most like to belong. On the left is Delfina Delletrez Fendi and on the right are the Missonis

Franca Sozzani of Vogue Italia (left) and the guest of honour, Mr Tarantino and Diesel founder Renzo Rosso make up our party.

So that just leaves us one more best dressed-er of the day. The shy and retiring Naomi Campbell, in Dolce & Gabanna Here she is, in a rare pose captured on film before she bashfully sprinted away from the cameras, flanked by her trusty fashion sidekicks! See you later Dahr-links! Ciao bella!
