Jodie Turner-Smith was a revelation at this year’s Venice Film Festival. She pulled out all the stops for the high-profile event, serving glamour and taking bold fashion risks.
Theatrics and high-octane glamour were expected at the Venice Film Festival, and Hollywood’s elite certainly delivered. We saw a series of impressive looks from stars like Ana de Armas, Tilda Swinton, Sadie Sink, Julianne Moore, Alessandra Ambrosio, and the stars of the highly publicized scandal-plagued film, Don’t Worry Darling.

Both ladies made red carpet fashion exciting again under the direction of stylist duo Wayman Deon and Micah McDonald. Whether their looks made it to everyone’s best-dressed list or not doesn’t matter because they sure gave everyone something to talk about for days on end.
The 36-year-old star was in attendance to promote her latest film, White Noise. Based on the Don DeLillo novel of the same name, White Noise is an apocalyptic black comedy directed by Noah Baumbach. Jodie plays neuro-chemist Winnie Adams alongside Hollywood heavyweights Adam Driver and Greta Gerwig.
