Cate Blanchett, Tessa Thompson and Julianne Moore: The best looks from the 2022 Venice Film Festival

The 79th Venice Film Festival began in the Italian city on 31 August, attracting the great and the good from the film world.

As the world’s longest-running film festival, it regularly attracts the crème de la crème of the industry, the most anticipated new movies, as well as some exceptional red carpet looks.

This year will see the premiere of the long-awaited Don’t Worry Darling, starring Florence Pugh, Harry Styles and Gemma Chan, and directed by Olivia Wilde.

Blonde, the new Marily Monroe biopic starring Ana de Armas, is also tipped to attract the crowds, alongside Bones & All featuring Timothée Chalamet.

Cate Blanchett’s performance in Todd Field’s Tár, which follows the life of fictional composer, musician, philanthropist and conductor, Lydia Tar, earned a six-minute standing ovation on the second day of the festival.

The Oscar-winning actor wore a sleek, black, strapless jumpsuit with an explosion of brightly coloured flowers sprouting from the top of the corseted velvet bodice.

Her striking outfit, featuring vibrant red-oranges, violets and whites, was captured as she stopped for autographs on the red carpet ahead of the film’s screening on Thursday – reportedly causing it to begin late.

She was joined by co-star Nina Hoss, who also drew attention in a long, sparkling trench coat.

Elsewhere at the festival, British actress Jodie Turner-Smith donned a series of impressive outfits, following the debut of White Noise on Wednesday, in which she stars alongside Adam Driver.

On the festival’s opening night, Turner-Smith wore a long black, translucent Gucci dress, with jewelled detailing and red lining – and completed the look with elbow-length green gloves.

Elsewhere, Julianne Moore – who is serving as the festival’s jury president this year – wore an oversized Celine tuxedo, while Tessa Thompson sported a black tulle Rodarte blazer-dress.

Here’s our pick of the best-dressed stars at Venice Film Festival 2021.

For the premiere of White Noise, Turner-Smith brought a more glamourous look to the red carpet, changing into a black chiffon and silk-organza gown by Gucci, complete with crystal embroidery and a velvet hem. “I really wanted to play with a silhouette that felt unique,” she said, adding that she “really wanted the colors to reflect the pan-African flag—red, black, and green— as a perfect statement about my pride in the African diaspora.”
