YES. The Venice Film Festival has begun. It just crept up on us, didn't it? "The Ides of March" premiere, a movie I am SERIOUSLY looking forward to by the way, was today and I already have a favorite. My only suggestion is that they fly Ryan Gosling out to Italy with them to promote the movie? I mean, he's on the official movie poster for goodness' sake! Anyway, Diane Kruger looked stunning in this Elie Saab gown. It is so gorgeous, I want to cry. I love it. I love the sparkles on the bottom of the skirt, I love the cut and I love the bodice. This is magnificent, no?
