Venice Film Festival 2016: Best-Dressed
Parisian Wholesale turns its fashionable gaze to the world’s most chic floating city – Venice. To celebrate one of the most glamorous events on the international film calendar, Venice Film Festival 2016, Parisian designers weigh in on the A-list aplenty trends from the leading ladies red carpet premieres.
A story that could be straight from Freeform’s new TV drama Famous In Love, Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender fell for each other on the set of their latest film The Light Between Oceans. It was no surprise the couples first ever shared red carpet at the Venice Film Festival 2016 was quite the spectacle. Vikander and Fassbender may only have eyes for each other, but EVERYONE’s eyes were on Alicia’s dress. Mixing ‘70s bohemia with 80’s glamour, Vikander’s peasant style gown perfectly sums up the new styling of Autumn/Winter ’16. A blend of hi-low dressing, the flash bulb reflecting sequin against the winter floral is exactly how you should be advising your customers to style their sequin come fall.
‘Opera Prima – Luigi de Laurentis’ jury member and Spanish actress Pilar López de Ayala attended the 73rd Venice Film Festival photocall proving you can achieve red carpet glamour wearing metallic separates. Style points for the lurex high neck evening top! Now, where do we get the wholesale price for her hair?
Amy Adams gold embellished gown is in stark contrast with the pitch-black subject matter of fashion designer turned film director Tom Ford’s second feature film Nocturnal Animals. Adams’ dress, designed by Tom Ford too, will have your customer experimenting with gold sequin come sparkle season. It’s a shame we do not stock leading man Jake Gyllenhaal, too.
To great reviews, critics are calling Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling’s performance in La La Land as “close to perfection”, and if Stone’s performance is as dazzling as her Venice gala dress, we applaud! Emma Stone is already in the running to win Best Actress at the Oscars 2017, so it’s fitting Parisian has voted her as Venice Film Festival’s best dressed. Stone wore a mermaid-inspired lurex gown from Atelier Versace, making it a legal requirement your range has to consist of dance-worthy lurex dresses. Christmas party, check!
Parisian Wholesale believes Alicia Vikander and Emma Stone’s dresses deserve a standing ovation at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Which leading lady gets your vote?
