Film stars are descending upon Italy’s romantic city for the 71st Venice Film Festival, which welcomes Hollywood in their most spectacular look.
Actress Emma Stone kicked off the glamorous event at the screening of her latest film, Birdman, yesterday. She demonstrated her red carpet prowess in true movie star style wearing a stunning emerald green Valentino Couture gown, from the Haute Couture autumn/winter 2014 collection. Earlier on the day she opted for a more contemporary look with a sleek Proenza Schoulder crop top and trousers combo at the film's press conference.
Other glamorous gowns were paraded by models Bianca Balti, Liya Kebede and Constance Jablonski, and Vogue Italy editor Franca Sozzani. Hollywood men also played a role on the red carpet in sharp tuxedos, like actor Edward Northon, who took out his iPhone at his arrival to take pictures of the fans and paparazzis surrounding him.
See the gallery above for an influx of stars on the red carpet of Venice and stay tuned for the upcoming premiers.
