Another two highlights on day two of the 2011 Venice Film Festival were Kate Winslet and Abbie Cornish. At the première of her new film Carnage, Kate fronted up in a latte-coloured dress from Victoria Beckham's Autumn 2011 collection. Although not quite the jaw-dropping, floor-sweeping gown we might have expected her to wear, it was still a great choice. I love the sparkly Jimmy Choo sandals she also wore with the outfit.

As for Abbie, well her look was on the opposite end of the spectrum. Going all out, the Aussie actress pulled off a black and purple ruffled strapless gown by Atelier Versace. The ombre skirt and the amazing ripple effect from the organza petals really sets this dress apart from the rest. It's love!
