They're Here: The 11 Most Breathtaking Beauty Looks at the Venice Film Festival

Updated 09/07/18

We'll admit that even though hair and makeup are certainly not the prime focus of the 75th Annual Venice Film Festival, in our eyes it's the main event. Celebrities and models alike sashay across the massive red carpet in the most glamorous gowns, and so it's impossible not to be enamoured with the stunning beauty looks under those bright lights. Sure, they're all gathered there to celebrate some of the best films in the world, but we're praising all the glam served up by some of our favourites in Hollywood.

The Cannes Film Festival has some competition because stars brought their A-game with breathtaking looks the past few nights in Venice. As we can't be there, we're fawning from afar. Keep scrolling for the most gorgeous looks we've spotted.
