The 68th Venice Film Festival kicked off yesterday with a screening of George Clooney’s political thriller, Ides of March. On the red carpet, the stars maxed out on this summer’s maxi trend with floor-length gowns, despite the heat.
Ides of March star Marisa Tomei chose a Marios Schwab dress in this season’s seventies-approved mustard; Diane Kruger went ethereal in an Elie Saab Couture gown; and Bianca Brandolini d’Adda went leopard, in a couture piece by her friend Giambattista Valli.
A few days ago, we called your attention to Miuccia Prada’s his-’n'-hers dressing, at her Spring 2011 men’s and women’s shows. Looks like there’s one famous couple that listened. Armani fans George Clooney and his girlfriend, Elisabetta Canalis, hit the designer’s runway show in Milan today in corresponding suits. Mr. Clooney opted for a peak-lapel number in dark navy with a rakish, tie-free black shirt, while his lady friend chose a shawl-collared one-button black tux with piped trousers. On some duos, this might seem too matchy-matchy for comfort, but we think George and Elisabetta have got the paired look down pat; the different proportions of their two looks, and the feminine jeweled touches on Canalis’, keep them from looking the same. Could it be that the couple that suit-shops together, stays together? Let us know what you think in the comments, below.

Louis Vuitton’s “Icons” campaign soldiers on, and the latest star is one who usually finds herself behind the camera: Annie Leibovitz. Apparently, she used her fee to hire another celeb to co-star with her, Mikhail Baryshnikov. No offense, Annie, but do you maybe have a better use for that check? [WWD]
The ladies at Jezebel line up Demi Moore’s Photoshopped fragrance ad with one of hubby Ashton’s twitpics to come to the following conclusion: Demi’s gorgeous; Photoshop’s bad. We’d say stop the presses but, y’know, we don’t have any. [Jezebel]

Is holding the title of Supermodel like that of POTUS? Like, you never really lose it? It’s certainly true of Cindy Crawford—clad in drapey, short Alexander Wang—whose super powers commanded the room last night at London’s Almada club to launch the Omega Constellation collection. “I rarely come across the pond,” she said. “But I definitely want to see some sights, visit Frieze—and support George.” That would be Clooney, and the supe did exactly that the night before walking the red carpet in twinned black dresses with the actor’s current girlfriend (and therefore current object of our fascination) Elisabetta Canalis for the Fantastic Mr. Fox premiere.
Crawford attracted an interesting mix: Lily Allen, model Tolula Adeyemi, Spice Girl Melanie Brown with husband Stephen Belafonte, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rhys Ifans, Jasmine Guinness, Piers Morgan, former Queen drummer Roger Taylor, Ben Grimes, Marina Hanbury, and Matthew Mellon’s ex Noelle Reno. As if Crawford’s physical presence wasn’t enough, the room was dominated by massive screens flickering with images of the model. But she was more down-to-earth than her celluloid counterpart and happy to chat. “There’s a vibe in London,” she said en route to a private dinner hosted by Clooney. “[There’s] fantastic people-watching. I like to see what everyone is wearing, how they accessorize. For that alone it’s worth it to come.” In that case, see you next year at LFW? Crawford responded with a laugh, “Don’t count me out yet.”
