Bong Joon-ho is the jury president at Venice this year, and he added a crucial accessory to his signature all-black suit: a handheld fan.
Parallel Mothers star Israel Elejalde walked the red carpet in one of Dior designer Kim Jones’s sleek, single-button Tailleur Oblique suits. Very sleek.
Also on the Parallel Mothers carpet was director Luca Guadagnino, wearing a delightful white Brioni jacket. Nothing like Italy in the summertime…
A red Wayfarer. A white short-sleeve shirt with a black jean. Gold jewelry aplenty. As usual, The Card Counter director Paul Schrader kept things playful.
Italian actor Alessandro Borghi pulled up in his water taxi looking positively nautical in an easy white tee, an open vest, and a sockless Gucci loafer. Not to mention—have the GQ Grooming Gods caught wind of this look yet?
Like Borghi, The Power Of The Dog star Benedict Cumberbatch also opted for a white tee under his cloud-blue Richard James suit. Easy breezy!
Kirstin Dunst, like her The Power Of The Dog co-star, followed suit in an Armani set.
Matt Dillion, who stars in the festival opener Land of Dreams, kept things casual in shades and a printed Saint Laurent short-sleeve shirt.
Venice jury member Cynthia Erivo’s shredded jeans (with camo underlay?!), big Gucci glasses, and Janet Jackson tee assert that, yes, a film festival should be fun!
