There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming thriller Don’t Worry Darling. From the cast to its director, the love scenes and the actual subject matter – people can’t seem to stop talking about the movie.

But the loudest noise comes from the myriad of scandals that plague it (as well as the gaggle of Harry Styles fans camped outside, waiting for a glimpse of the pop star).

Much of the drama comes from the troubled production, which wasn’t off to a good start. There were conflicting accounts regarding Shia LaBeouf’s getting fired and being replaced by Harry Styles. Unverified claims of a pay gap also surfaced, as well as rumors of a feud between director Olivia Wilde and lead actress Florence Pugh.

Perhaps it’s true, in this case, that any publicity is good publicity. Word-of-mouth is an effective marketing strategy, and people have been talking nonstop about the drama and the internet memes that resulted from it.

Don’t Worry Darling earned a five-minute standing ovation after its world premiere during this year’s Venice International Film Festival. Its stellar ensemble cast stepped out in good spirits and dressed to the nines for the high-profile event.

Here is a rundown of the glamorous looks from the cast during this year’s Venice International Film Festival:

1. Olivia Wilde in Custom Gucci and Chanel

Yellow is a good color on Olivia Wilde, who looked stunning in her custom Gucci gown. The yellow silk chiffon piece featured glittering crystal fringing over the bodice and a dramatic floor-sweeping ruffled hem with a train.

As for her plus one, Florence brought her grandmother to the premiere. “Granzo Pat” looked like she had the time of her life posing for photographs and dancing on the red carpet with her granddaughter.

Earlier that day, Florence arrived in Venice in a purple ensemble after flying straight from the Dune: Part Two set.

She was a breath of fresh air in her retro poolside look courtesy of Valentino. Florence wore a loose-fitting button-up shirt, which she kept open to reveal her tiny bandeau and matching shorts.

She carried a Valentino Garavani purple bag and accessorized with Valentino cat-eye shades and Versace drop earrings. A pair of Valentino purple sandals added the perfect finishing touch to her casual-chic look.

It’s reminiscent of previous tough-glam ensembles from Louis Vuitton girls Alicia Vikander and Ana de Armas, who looked poised for battle in their glamorous gowns.

British superstar Harry Styles embraced his 1970s retro aesthetic in Venice to promote the film and his capsule collection with Gucci. He wore pieces from Gucci HA HA HA, which showcased his vintage flair.

At the premiere, Harry wore a blue double-breasted jacket with matching trousers and a light blue shirt with an exaggerated collar. He styled his suit with white Gucci boots, tinted Gucci shades, chunky Gucci rings, and light blue nails.

The 28-year-old star opted for casual-cool at the photocall with nautical stripes and a printed blue scarf for a pop of color.

Harry wore a white tank tucked into high-waisted pants and styled with a cream-colored pinstripe blazer. Brown shoes, chunky rings, and a side-parted hairstyle rounded out his look.

He wore a maroon double-breasted jacket over a deep green sweater vest with a monogram pattern in contrasting pink. Harry styled them with denim flared jeans and white leather Adidas x Gucci Gazelle sneakers.

Ever the superstar, Harry finished off his head-to-toe Gucci look with matching bags from the luxury label. He carried a pony hair Jackie 1961 crossbody bag, as well as a leopard-print suitcase and mini case.
