And we're off! The 2013 Venice Film Festival kick-started today with George Clooney and Sandra Bullock posing up a storm at the Gravity photocall. In keeping with tradition, the Hollywood heavyweights arrived at their red carpet by water taxi, with George on the wheel.
Sandra Bullock wore a zesty Alex Perry Resort 2014 pencil skirt frock in tangerine, lime and pepto-bismol pink, with gold Giuseppe Zanotti stilettos. Does this remind anyone else of one of those strawberry, orange & pineapple rocket lollies? In a good way of course. It looks like Italy is doing good things to Sandra Bullock's navy-centric wardrobe.

Get ready for more water taxis and starry press conferences, as the film festival will go on for the next 11 days. Nicolas Cage, Matt Damon, Zac Efron and Scarlett Johansson are some of the stars jetting into Venice to pose on the Lido.
This year’s mistress of ceremonies Eva Riccobono started her duties by frolicking in a nude Armani Privé silk organza and lace gown on the shore. The frock simply breathtaking; this lady has set the bar HIGH for her Venice wardrobe.
So while we wait for those water taxis to pull in with more A Listers, let's revisit some of the greatest fashion moments on the Venice Lido shall we? We've picked out our favourites from Madonna's baby blue Vionnet gown to Gwyneth Paltrow's blush Prada bow number.
