It was a liaison of crimson and brocade on day 6 of the Venice Film Festival as movie stars turned up in oriental outfits that perfectly complemented the red carpet. Reminiscent of the Met Gala’s Through the Looking Glass, the looks ranged from regal to urban chic. 

Take a cue from Italian actor Brando Pacitto’s get-up and opt for a statement bomber with graphic embroidery for added interest. Alternatively, put a modern spin on the otherwise ceremonial palette by going for a two-piece, like Italian actresses Francesca Valtorta and Kiara Tomaselli, who both flaunted opulent matching sets.
