Venise Film Festival: My Top 20

Hey there,

Sorry for the late post, but I’m currently in China and things have been pretty hectic!  I hope everything is great with you…

The 73rd Venise Film Festival started on August 31st and closed a few days ago.  You know how I love festivals and other (award) shows where actresses and other public figures make us swoon with the most gorgeous dresses.  Well this year was no different, so now is the time to take a look back at the best looks we saw on the red carpet 🙂
