Between August 31st and September 10th, the 2011 Venice Film Festival attracts a bevy of actors, directors and producers anxious to premiere their hard fought for films. A few in particular have piqued my curiosity, and I can’t wait to see them when they become available to the wider public – W.E. (written and directed by Madonna about American and twice divorcee Wallis Simpson who married King Edward VIII, prompting him to renounce his title as king, otherwise known as the duke and duchess of Windsor), Wuthering Heights, and The Ides of March directed and starring George Clooney.
Aside from the films, the there were some stunning red carpet attractions. Here’s a look at some of my favorites.

Diane Kruger in Elie Saab 2011 Fall Couture
Madonna in Vionnet and Miu Miu sunglasses
