As the 78th edition of the international event gets underway, there are stellar red carpet looks galore. 

Now that life is finally returning, it will come as a welcome surprise that red carpet fashion is back with a bang – hurrah!

And no red carpet attracts quite as many stellar looks as that which graces the Venice Film Festival, the 78th edition of which is currently underway in the Italian city.

So far the event, which started last week, has attracted appearances from the likes of Dame Helen Mirren, Zendaya and Nomadland director Chloé Zhao, who made history when she became the first woman of colour to win Best Director at the Oscars in May. 

Elsewhere, at the premiere for Denis Villeneuve’s new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic Dune over the weekend, Zendaya made a splash in custom Balmain and lashings of Bulgari emeralds, as she made her debut appearance at the festival alongside her co-star Timothée Chalamet

And there’s plenty more where that came from, particularly as we still have a few more days left of the festival to go. These are a few of our favourite looks so far.
