INTERNATIONAL CELEBRITIES have descended on Venezia for the 66th Venice Film Festival—or, to give it its Italian name, the Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica di Venezia. At the opening ceremony and Baarìa red carpet on September 2 were Eva Mendes, Svetlana Hodchenkova and Margareth Madè, not coincidentally sporting Jæger-LeCoultre watches.

Mendes wore Dolce & Gabbana and, in some eyes, stole the show on the red carpet.

Baarìa—la porta del vento, the film shown on the first day of the Festival, is an semi-autobiographical Sicilian family story spanning three generations, written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore.

Meanwhile, Spanish actress Manuela Velasco—perhaps best known to international readers for her role as Ana Valverde in La chica de ayer (the Spanish remake of Life on Mars)—was at the Rec 2 photo call at the Sala Grande. The anticipated horror sequel was filmed late last year, and received its Festival début on the 2nd. However, it is out of the main competition at Venezia. •
