The Venice International Film Festival red carpet couldn’t deliver better beauty inspo if it tried
All the glitz and glamour you’d except, and then some

The Venice International Film Festival not only boasts the title of being the world’s oldest film festival, it’s also one of the most glamourous festivals, attracting a throng of celebs of the A++ variety every year.
Its 76th edition has just kicked off, signalling the arrival of many of our favourite celebrities as they descend on Venice for a week and half of film premieres and festivities.
As the stars take to the premieres’ red carpets, they do so knowing full-well that the world is watching. The result? An absolute smorgasbord of fresh new beauty inspo for all of us playing at home.
Here are some of the best beauty looks we’ve spotted at the Venice International Film Festival so far.
American actress Scarlett Johansson stepped out for the Marriage Story screening looking like an absolute bombshell in this flawless beauty look. She’s gone for a flashy, metallic bronze eye accentuated with heavy black winged eyeliner. Meanwhile, her slicked-back, wet-look hairstyle lets her gorgeous makeup take centre stage.
Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel went for an ultra-smooth blow-dry with just a hint of a wave at the Marriage Story screening. She’s strategically tucked one side of her hair behind her ear to expose her oversized (seriously – those things are like saucers!) statement earrings. As for her makeup, she’s kept things minimal save for a sharp cat eye look to accentuate her eyes. So simple, yet so chic.
Australian national treasure Cate Blanchett smouldered on the red carpet in the subtle, smoky eye of our absolute dreams. We love how her tousled, asymmetrical hairstyle has been styled with a gorgeous gold and pearl hairpiece.
Sara Sampaio strode in looking like she’d just stepped off the catwalk with this edgy beauty look. The Victoria’s Secret model is often partial to a little eyeliner, but for Venice, she went all out bringing this bold, heavily accentuated eye look. But the part we can’t get enough of? That braid! How cool is its 3D look? We’re feeling a new braid trend coming on.
Kristen Stewart took to the red carpet wearing one seriously firey beauty look. Bold slashes of red eyeshadow draw attention to her striking green eyes, while her short hair has been sculpted into a choppy hairstyle that’s giving us punk vibes. Kristen is taking no prisoners with this daring beauty look and we’re absolutely here for it.
