Above: Timothée Chalamet innovated with Prada. The look recalls Bowie in freshness and excitement often missing in men’s fashion. J-Lo & Ben Affleck made it official in Venice last year, literally sparkling in the spotlight, while Kristen Stewart continued her collab with Chanel in super short shorts, heels and a classic side-part and pony.


Below: Cynthia Erivo showed it all – nearly – in a sheer Oscar de la Renta at the closing ceremonies last year. The sheer look was echoed all year long and manifested in the extreme in Cannes.

Above: Maggie Gyllenhaal proved herself as a capable director.  Here she shows independence in a white over-garnet, cinched at the upper back with a drawstring from the waist. Her black bra is visible through the slashes.


Below: Kristen Stewart in Chanel – a throwback to an earlier time but also the feel of bed-wear. Sheer and not. Superb!

Above: Zendaya can do no wrong on the screen or on the carpet – be it in indie fare, blockbuster franchise, or art house piece. She is always pushing boundaries but has a classic aesthetic visible in both these stunning looks last year.


Below: As adventurous on the carpet and on the screen, Tilda Swinton heralded a theme that has taken hold: clashing colors. Try it!

Above: Anya Taylor-Joy has been getting it right for a long time. Dior has dressed her for her recent red carpet award season. Here, she chooses brights in pink and orange, the shapes very modern while hinting at retro.


Below: Timothée Chalamet always impresses on the carpet – he is attending the Venice Film Festival this year again so return here, to see what he wears.
