Venice Film Festival: glamour and style

Venice is definitely one of the most amazing cities in the world. It’s unique and has an incomparable charm. With its magnificent architecture and fascinating landscape, Venice  is so beautiful that it almost seems unreal. I have been there a couple of times, and always got the feeling of being in a fairytale scenery.


Every year in September this incredible city becomes even more magical, with worldwide celebrities and Hollywood’s most beautiful people boarding on the “gondolas” to reach the red carpet of the Venice Film Festival.

In the past few days stars the likes of Kate Hudson, Naomi Watts, and Latitia Casta have impressed an international audience with glamorous gowns by the world’s most famous designers. Weren’t  Dolce & Gabbana and Versace this year’s favourites?

Sumptuously dressed at night and totally stylish in day time. I absolutely love this look in which Naomi Watts has been spotted strolling through the little, enchanting Venetian alleys. I think everything is perfect here, the very simple and très chic short black dress, the leather gladiator sandals, the cream color glasses, the Prada bag, and, best of all, the super cute Panama hat!


Getting over my bag…

I am pretty sure that the guy who stole my bag on Sunday while I was enjoying the most relaxing day ever, is now having a good time with a)my money b)my mobile phone 3)my digital camera.  And, of course, he has probably offered his girlfriend my beautiful, essential, little Prada bag  AND Prada wallet, very precious to me as it contained many bits and pieces of my life, like loved passport sizes pictures, my very private notes, various little lucky charms that I normally like to bring along , and so on.

I don’t own all this any more, it’s really bad, and I have been furious for a while, but, hey, I am trying to get over it now, what else to do?

So, when it comes to bags, I have one believe, which is: Prada comes first, Gucci second, and everyone else follows from a distance. I know, it must be because I am italian!

I have heard a theory according to which your bag should be proportioned to your hight, as in a ‘petite’ looks better with a small bag like a clutch, while tall ladies should prefer larger bags like totes. Well, it makes sense to me, but only if you are really petite or, the other way round, very, very tall. For everything else in between I don’t think there is a rule, really….

 As for me, generally I like to wear larger bags during the summer, and smaller bags during the winter, when there are already so many layers on me, so to balance the total look. 

Printed bags are really in fashion now,  as you can tell by this selection of bags that  I would just  buy, right on the spot.prada,clutch
