Laetitia Casta in Elie Saab

French actress and model Laetitia Casta is currently at the Venice Film Festival, serving as a member of the jury, and as you'd expect this has led to many a red carpet turn in the past few days. Casta takes risks with revealing, highly intricate outfits, and has turned heads since the festival began.

Our favourite look so far is a frothy peach confection of a gown from the Elie Saab A/W 2012 haute couture collection. We picked this dress out when we reviewed the show back in July, and since then it's been a particular favourite on Pinterest. It was only a matter of time before a star plucked it off the catwalk for a high profile appearance.

We think Laetitia definitely does justice to the romantic, ballet-length dress. Teamed with bold lips, wavy hair and the matching runway shoes, it's a very feminine, pretty look for a star who often goes for a sexier look.

Getting Laetitia's look on a tighter budget is pretty tricky, but we did find a few frocks that will give you a feel of her chic couture...
