While not as experimental as the Met Gala and Oscar’s red carpets, the Venice Film Festival does see men make bold stylistic choices, even if it is simply putting a spin on the classic tux.
Undoubtedly, Gen-Z style star Timothée Chalamet made the biggest waves with his ensemble this time around, courtesy of close friend and designer Haider Ackermann. The striking red halter neck jumpsuit fit right in with the Bones and All actor’s penchant for risk-taking, and took film festival fashion to another level. Also switching things up in terms of colors was Nicholas Hoult, who embraced summer dressing in an all-white suit and a matching shirt with an unbuttoned collar.
When it came to elevated suiting, Saudi producer and CEO of Red Sea International Film Festival, Mohammed Al Turki did it best. The former Vogue Living Arabia cover star served up three distinct looks during the week—a black oversized one by Valentino, a blue patterned number by Giorgio Armani, and a shirtless single-breasted suit by Dior.
Proving the timeless allure of a classic tux, Tunisian actor Dhafer L’Abidine and White Noise star Adam Driver both walked the red carpet in smart tailoring, complete with bow ties. Also worth mentioning is Bridgerton star Regé-Jean Page, who wore a texture embossed tuxedo by Armani, which he paired with patent leather brogues and a solid black bow tie.
Below, check out the best looks sported by men at the 79th Venice Film Festival.
