Julianne Moore Did Superhero Glamour in a Completely Sheer Gown and Cape

There are two women currently restoring our faith in Hollywood glamour. Jodie Turner-Smith and Julianne Moore are both having an excellent Venice Film Festival and it’s only day two. From water-taxi tailoring to directional photo-call looks, the actors are putting their stamp on floating-city chic and seemingly having a ball.

Last night’s official opening ceremony was a sequins-strewn extravaganza, with Moore’s Valentino cape deserving a special mention. Her sheer tulle gown and superhero overlay were peppered with colorful paillettes that looked like fireworks on the star, and shone all the brighter with a smattering of Cartier jewelry. The message? There’s no sell-by date on this kind of fashion fantasy. You can wear a glittering cape however old you are. Visible big black knickers too.

Of course a glowing Julianne Moore, who swears by chlorophyll and keeping her face mobile, defied her 61 years. The actor’s new stylist, Kate Young, is a master of these tantalizingly sheer looks, which somehow seem demure thanks to all that dripping embellishment. Remember Dakota Johnson’s Gucci Met Gala catsuit? That was Young’s work. Jennifer Lawrence’s tinsel-effect Dior maternity red-carpet wear? Yep, Young too. After Moore’s Venice moment, we have a feeling more celebs will be calling up the power player.
