Every year, Venice sees the gathering of the world's most beloved celebrities when its film festival rolls around. The event is as much a spectacle for fashion lovers as it is for film enthusiasts.
The 2022 edition held this month drew out the brightest and boldest outfits for the red carpet.
Both women and men were seen in their most daring getups. They were chic, glamorous, colourful, avant-garde, brave – and at times. even quirky.
If not bright shades, then it was glittery embellishments, floral finishes and wild silhouettes.
All the big designers and labels were represented too. Valentino, Versace, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Haider Ackermann, Schiaparelli, Elie Saab, Celine and lots more were paraded amid the flashing lights of photographers.
As the 20222 Venice Film Festival lasted almost two weeks (Aug 31 - Sept 10), there were plenty of opportunities for the celebrities to really put on a "fashion show" – something for their fans to really get excited over.
