The Venice Film Festival is a star-studded fashion bonanza, with actors pulling out all the stops on the red carpet. The renowned celebration of filmmaking formally kicks off tomorrow, but some stars have already hit the ground running. A number of celebrities opted for old-school airport glamour and turned the terminal hallways of Venice Airport into a makeshift runway.
First up is Jodie Turner-Smith, who provided a knockout arrival, strutting through the airport in a flowy two-piece suit that featured a yellow-to-pink gradient. The best part: Jodie carried not one, but two Gucci bags. One of them was the beloved GG Supreme canvas duffle bag. Accessorized with oversized, hot-pink sunglasses and chain-link necklaces, the entire ensemble called back to the golden days of classic Hollywood—when stars flew Pan Am and wore their absolute finest on the plane. Turner-Smith is in Venice to promote and attend the premiere of White Noise, directed by Noah Baumbach (Marriage Story). The film, which follows a family after a train crash casts a toxic cloud over their town, also stars Greta Gerwig, Adam Driver, and Don Cheadle.
Another vision of glamour came courtesy of Tessa Thompson, who will star in the Steve Buscemi-directed The Listener. Thompson hopped off the plane lugging a black purse of dramatic proportions and a sheer dress tastefully worn over flared trousers and a bra top. In line with the day’s two-purses-are-better-than-one trend, a tartan Vivienne Westwood bag dangled off her pointer finger. Meanwhile, Dylan Sprouse jetted to an awaiting ferry with a semi-open billowy top and a Rimowa suitcase.
Then, there was the arrival of Alicia Keys. The musician sported a thick, long braided ponytail and massive gold hoop earrings. Next, Gerwig landed in a voluminous black dress and iconic Adidas Stan Smith sneakers (longtime partner Baumbach sported a pair from the sportswear giant too). Finally, actor Griselda Siciliani arrived, rocking what appears to be a gray version of the viral raffia and wood Prada bag and matching PVC Prada heels.
