Welcome back to Venice!
NATALIE PORTMAN at the Jackie premiere
gown by Valentino
The most interestingly gorgeous thing Natalie Portman has worn in three years. I bow down to that laser-cut overlay.
NATALIE PORTMAN at the Planetarium premiere
gown by Christian Dior
This is more par for the course for our girl Natalie. Something monochromatic, Dior, and virtually impossible to pick out of a line-up of 10 other Natalie looks.

gown by Valentino
Oh, come ON. The print doesn’t even line up on either side of the seam across her stomach! That’s like Project Runway 101. No excuse when the designer is goddamn Valentino.

Democracy Diva: *mouthing words, gesturing to the car next to me to roll down their window*
Other Driver: Sorry, I didn’t hear you, what was that?
Diva: I SAID, THIS DRESS IS FOR THE BIRDS
Other Driver: *silence*
SUKI WATERHOUSE at the Bad Batch premiere
gown by Dolce & Gabbana
Even Barbie would blush at this many pink sequins, but I’m on board.

dress by Public School, sunglasses by Fendi
Literally perfect street style. I would wear all of this every day forever.

dress by Fendi
Not all ruffles are dumb. But THESE ruffles? These ruffles are DUMB. It looks like every part of her dress is trying to run away from her at the same time.
SOPHIE TURNER at the Hacksaw Ridge premiere
dress by Yanina Couture, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Sansa Stark, looking like 2013-era Jennifer Lawrence? YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT I’M ALL ABOUT THIS.

blouse and pants by Chloé
DAKOTA FANNING at the Brimstone photocall
dress by Dolce & Gabbana
I’m not sure what’s happening on this dress. A moon, a star, and a scepter tied with a bow? Are those the arms of House Fanning? Whatever. I love the color, and the shoes are awesome.
LILY-ROSE DEPP at the Planetarium premiere
dress by Chanel
If your dad was Johnny Depp and your mom was Vanessa Paradis, you’d be making that face too. I want to rip that white ball of puff off this dress, but I’m all about the shoes.

dress by Chanel
You can’t wear the same free pair of shoes with every outfit, Lily. But I’m not sure a different shoe would have saved this dress. It looks like spray-painted astroturf.
NAOMI WATTS at the The Bleeder premiere
gown by Elie Saab
The hair and makeup are strangely sloppy, which is a common theme with Naomi Watts. I think I could like this dress, but the proportions are a nightmare. And the belt was a mistake.
NAOMI WATTS at the The Bleeder party
Okay, it’s not terrible, but I can’t get excited about it either.
EVA HERZIGOVA out in Venice
blouse, pants, and purse by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini
Denim on denim is not my scene, and ruffled denim sounds even worse, but she somehow makes this work.
GEMMA ARTERTON at the The Young Pope premiere
gown by Armani, shoes by Jimmy Choo
I’m going to roll my eyes at every sheer sparkly gown on the red carpet until the good lord shows me one that’s actually new and interesting.
GEMMA ARTERTON at the Jaeger-LeCoultre party
Hire a tailor.
TERESA PALMER at the Hacksaw Ridge premiere
gown by Prada
I think “pregnancy brain” is a misogynistic stereotype popularized by sitcoms, to the harm of women everywhere. However, it is also the most plausible explanation for willingly choosing to wear this gown.
ASHLEY GREENE at the In Dubious Battle photocall
jumpsuit by Saloni
I didn’t know Ashley Greene was still a thing! And while I like this shade of wine, I’m not sure why she couldn’t manage to find a pair of pants that actually fit.

gown by Alberta Ferretti
