Beauty looks from the Venice Film Festival to copy for the weekend From the sculptural hairstyle of Barbara Palvin to the goth make-up of Mariacarla Boscono

The 79th edition of the Venice Film Festival has begun, turning the spotlight on the most interesting cinema we will see in the coming months, but also on the Italian and international stars who will flock to the Lagoon in these weeks The focus, in fact, is not only on Blonde, Don't worry, darling, The Hanging Sun, White Noise and the other titles in the program, but on the red carpet. Movie premieres are opportunities for actresses, models, influencers, and celebrities to wear fabulous and eccentric gowns, flaunt precious and glittering jewelry, and dare with make-up and hairstyles tracing the footsteps of iconic divas such as Audrey Hepburn and Sophia Loren, but also anticipating some of the trends that will dominate fall-winter. From Julianne Moore to Cate Blanchett, from Mariacarla Boscono to Emma Chamberlain, the beauty and fashion looks captured photographers' flashes with nude effects, eccentric shapes, sparkles, stunning necklines, sculptural hairstyles, graphic designs, intriguing looks and bold lips. 

G-Club chose some beauty looks seen in these early days of the Venice Film Festival to copy for the weekend. Do you prefer the choices of the ethereal Cate Blanchett or supermodel Barbara Palvin?


Barbara Palvin

The model arrived on the red carpet hand in hand with fiancé Dylan Sprouse, but if he opted for a classic tuxedo, she dared with a sculptural hairstyle, a little bit manga a little bit futuristic, the work of hair artist Owen Gold, who braided Barbara's brown locks with the help of his know-how and lots of gel. The sharp points that sprout on Palvin's head are taken up by Armani Beauty's signature cat-eye, enhanced by a light pinkish shade, the same shades also used for the blush that sculpts the features and lips, and a flawless, matte complexion. The dress, of black sequins with a red and white jeweled decoration on the bust, is also Armani.


Mariacarla Boscono

Mariacarla Boscono never disappoints. Her look (styled by Ramona Tabita) is the most daring, goth and coolest seen so far in Laguna: a long tulle dress, signed Jean Paul Gaultier SS22 Couture by Glenn Martens, under which flesh-colored lingerie and bare breasts pop out. If it is the nude effect that is striking in the outfit, the make-up, created by Luciano Chiarello, enhances the blackness and focuses on two of the fall trends such as discolored eyebrows and bold eyeliner, a decidedly edgy and dark look, perfect for Mariacarla's rock attutude and her diaphanous skin. The low tail, with a central parting, is flat and glossy.


Emma Chamberlain

Emma Chamberlain arrived at the Venice Film Festival for the premiere of White Noise and wore a ruched red Valentino dress from the fall 2007 collection, with bandage detailing on the shoulders and hips. For make-up she focused on graphic smokey eyes (eyeliner and eye shadow in shades of red/plum), framed by artfully combed bold eyebrows. The lipstick is pinkish, slightly glossy and gives a touch of light to the flawless complexion. To complete the beauty side, Emma chooses to gather her bob with a central parting into a mini low ponytail and give it a wet look.


Pixie Lott

Pixie Lott chooses Armani, both for the dress, an elegant jumpsut with bright red essentials, and for the beauty. In the foreground are the lips, red and ultra-creamy, while the look is clean, highlighted only by the lashes, artfully separated with mascara, and skinny eyebrows. Definitely worth copying is the scruffy chignon, embellished with 1930s waves and crystal clips. Tres chic!


Elisa Sednaoui

Elisa Sednaoui walks the red carpet in an Ermanno Scervino creation that mixes nude efect, dark sequins and sparkle. Make-up, on the other hand, is curated by Manola Spaziani for Armani Beauty and focuses everything on the eyes with bold eyelids on which a generous dose of anthracite glitter eyeshadow and black mascara has been dusted. Blush sculpts the cheekbones, and the lips are enlivened by a touch of antique pink. The hair look created by Satoshi Klein for Kérastase, L'Oréal Professionel is a long wavy tail that starts at the top of the head and leaves artfully disciplined baby hair on the forehead. 


Greta Gerwig

Greta Gerwig is in Venice to present White Noise, the film by partner Noah Baumbach in which she stars alongside Adam Driver. For the red carpet, she chose a long black silk pleated gown with a deep V-neck and wide long sleeves by Gucci, paired with a very natural beauty that focuses on black eyeliner to intensify the eye and a soft crop. More punchy is the photocall look: power suit back by Dior, bold white acetate sunglasses and red lipstick. Hair is pulled back in a banana, with "wild" wisps flowing down the sides of the face. Easy. 


Cate Blanchett

Divine, ethereal and elegant. As always. Cate Blanchett, star of Tár, sports a luminous long bob with flat, defined waves, accompanied by nude, but warm make-up that plays with blush and blush to sculpt and "warm" the actress' features and complexion. The minimal but sunny choice is made to focus attention, not only on Cate's ageless beauty, but on her cleavage. Cleavage is also the focus of the Schiaparelli Haute Couture jumpsuit (chosen for her by celebrity stylist Elizabeth Stewart). It is, in fact, a black velvet creation with one special detail: a bouquet of flowers blooming at breast height.


Mara Sattei

For her first red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, Mara Sattei relies on stylist Simone Furlan and wears a black dress by Vivienne Westwood earrings and a Chopard necklace. For beauty, however, she opts for a scruffy crop, with two wisps framing her face, smokey eyes with a graphic eyeliner and rosy lips, with a veil of gloss.


Giorgia Soleri

No hot pink, a color she had often sported during the presentations of her book La signorina Nessuno. For Venice, Giorgia chooses a power suit by Moschino, consisting of extra wide pants and blazer with studs and sparkling details from which a black lace bralette pops out. If the outfit is a bit too austere, the hair is pulled back into a jaunty high ponytail. Her face is framed by her usual baby bangs, her eyebrows are bold, her cheekbones are sculpted by generous dustings of pink blush, and her eyes are made intriguing by a double stroke of eyeliner.
