Hollywood Stars Step Out in Style at the 2018 Venice Film Festival

The 75th Venice Film Festival kicked off this week and saw the arrival of some of the hottest stars of the silver screen. Fashion will be just as important as film at this international festival in one of Italy’s most stylish cities. And one way to add style to a red carpet look is with luxury elevator shoes.

Wednesday 29th August saw the start of the 75th Venice Film Festival, which will run until the closing ceremony on September 8th. The 2018 festival is being held on the Lido di Venezia and will see several films being screened to an international audience. One of the most hotly anticipated movies of the year, First Man, made its worldwide debut on Wednesday 29th at the Palazzo del Cinema. The film, starring Ryan Gosling, Jason Clarke and Claire Foy, tells the story of Neil Armstrong and NASA’s mission to be the first to send a man to the moon. First Man is directed by Damien Chazelle, director of La La Land and Whiplash.

Another movie that is making headlines this year is A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga, which is set to make its debut at the Palazzo del Cinema on the 31st of August. The movie is directed by Bradley Cooper and will be his directorial debut. Cooper has also co-written the film, which tells the story of an experienced musician who discovers a struggling singer and musician whom he then falls in love with. The movie follows the ups and downs of their relationship and features original songs written and performed by Lady Gaga.

Fashion and Elevator Shoes

Just as with any film festival, it’s not just about the films that are being screened. Fashion plays a huge role in these international events, as it’s a time for designers to show off their best creations by dressing some of the world’s most famous stars.

One way to bring even more style to the red carpet is through the choice of footwear. Style and comfort is important when taking those first steps on the red carpet. But for men who are walking alongside their female co-stars in heels, there can be a bit of height issue. So for men who want to increase their height as well as improve their style, GuidoMaggi can offer the perfect solution: luxury handcrafted Italian elevator shoes to suit even the most prestigious events, including the Venice Film Festival.

For a look to rival Ryan Gosling’s First Man premiere style, the Orvieto is a classic black patent leather elevator shoe that will increase your height by up to 3.1 inches. This luxury handcrafted Italian dress shoe will keep you looking sleek and on trend with black tuxedo pants, a white shirt and white tuxedo jacket.
