In Venice With Designer Misha Nonoo

-------

Just before the fashion set descends upon Manhattan for New York fashion week, the jet-setters of the world are making a stop in Italy next week for the 69th Venice Film Festival. For those who find themselves with a few extra minutes in between red carpets and fabulous parties (and those of us who just want to pretend we are there, too), Style.com asked designer Misha Nonoo for her go-to spots. The rising New York-based designer and her husband, Alexander Gilkes, had a lavish wedding in Venice earlier this summer (the three-day affair included guests like Princess Eugenie of York and her sister Beatrice; James Middleton—younger brother to Kate and Pippa; and Lana Del Rey, to name a few). Visit today’s Market Highs feature to see all of Nonoo’s picks.

Going Long In Venice

-------

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.

Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Black Swan In Red

-------

Natalie Portman is in Venice today, for the world premiere of her new film, the Darren Aronofsky-directed ballet drama, The Black Swan. Portman’s friends Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte designed the costumes for the flick, so three guesses who Natalie opted to wear to its premiere. The claret-hued silk tulle Rodarte gown—with a Swarovski crystal-encrusted bodice for extra shine—is pure, old Hollywood glamour; Rodarte is often known for moody, goth-tinged frocks, but this sweeping number looks borrowed from the closet of Veronica Lake. All to the good, we’d say. Portman finishes the look with an upswept chignon, sheer red footless stockings, and subtle T-strap heels. We’d call it a red-carpet win. How about you?

Update: The people have spoken—and corrected our error. Closer investigation reveals the tulle on Portman’s foot is part of her dress, not her stockings. Side note: Can somebody get on making sheer, red, footless stockings ASAP? We want a pair—enough even to hallucinate them.
