While the ongoing pandemic has forced most social functions off the calendar this year, pilloried as “super-spreader” events, the Venice International Film Festival has snubbed the virtual simulacra and otherwise unsatisfactory digital stand-ins for physical gatherings, and shored up a socially distant red carpet amidst the chaos-cum-uncertainty of Covid-19.

The festival’s 77th edition came to a close on Sunday evening, in a ceremony that saw more of Giorgio Armani and his petite mains than Paris Fashion Week this past June. A fantasia of pleated silk tulles, Privé bustiers, sequined organza, and crystal fringe could not seem a more perfect envoi to the week spent on Lido. Explore the fashion moments of Cate Blanchett, Vanessa Kirby, Pierfrancesco Favino, and others below.
