The Venice Film Festival kicked off in true Hollywood style last night with actor George Clooney and silver screen sirens Diane Kruger, Evan Rachel Wood and Marisa Tomei lighting up the red carpet on opening night.
The first premiere of the 68th annual movie fest was for the Ides of March, starring George Clooney and The Wrestler leading ladies Evan Rachel Wood and Marisa Tomei. The trio, who congregated earlier in the day for the film photocall looking relaxed and uber-chic in daywear, changed into their gladrags for an evening’s-worth of festivities. While Marisa Tomei opted for an on-trend ochre maxi-dress by Marios Schwab with plunging pearl neckline, Evan Rachel Wood looked striking in a dramatic white structured gown with a thigh-high split.
Alongside the stars of the film were Diane Kruger, who looked ethereal in a floaty cream-coloured Elie Saab gown and wavy locks and Cindy Crawford in a fire engine-red asymmetrical number by Roberto Cavalli.
