2015 Venice Film Festival, Part 2

Happy hungover Sunday! Let’s stare bleary-eyed at pretty things.

Elizabeth Banks is perfect, and every spring bride in America will be wearing this in two years. But I have to move on now, because I’m too hungover to look at something this white for much longer.

I think the strapless gown would have paired better with her hair down, or maybe a necklace. But this is still fucking stupendous.

I’m not sure I love this shiny, fire-engine red fabric, but I think the pockets are phenomenal and the collar was a risk worth taking.

Too beautiful to be human.

That cranberry velvet fabric is just the best. And I love how she maintains that cool expression, like, “oh, this? I just threw this on after steamy limo sex with Pacey Witter.”

It’s comforting to know that everyone has an off day, including magical starfish Diane Kruger. The embellishments on this dress just make me sad, and the platforms are not even a little bit okay.

I predicted Cate Blanchett would rock this couture gown, but I’m just as happy to drool over it on French superdiva Juliette Binoche. It is utterly gorgeous.

I want all of this.

She looks a little bit like she’s in costume for an old Western, but I’m not actually convinced that’s a bad thing in her case.

I’ll take one in every color, please.

The flamenco dancer ruffle feels a little dated – and so does the floral print, actually – but overall, she still looks pretty damn lovely.

She’s in the world’s least interesting gown and didn’t bother to do her hair; he looks like a middle-aged vampire. What a couple!

Why does she have bat wings instead of arms?

Ok, I would totally wear the shit out of this.

She looks like the ghost of a 1920s-era Ophelia. Did I just write Kristen Stewart’s next movie? SOMEONE GIVE ME A MILLION DOLLARS.

I could have liked her in this dress, but the “I can totally be as quirky as Alexa Chung!” shoes were a big mistake.

Shhhhhh. Approach Dakota very softly. You don’t want to scare the wild animal that’s taken residence on top of her head.

Honey, you’re TWENTY-FIVE. Lighten the fuck up. Jane Fonda looks more youthful and fancy-free than you.
