She accessorised with golden chunky earrings and dainty rings, and styled her blonde locks loose in flawless waves.

Opting for dramatic make-up, Lady Victoria drew even more attention courtesy of her bold red lipstick, dark smokey eyes and long lashes. 

The socialite was clearly in her element while posing up a storm on the red carpet at the lavish event.

Lady Victoria was among the few stars in attendance for the glitzy Maestro premiere on Saturday in Venice, which also saw stars such as Brazilian supermodel Adriana Lima and French actress Isabella Huppert.

The socialite put on a very daring display in a figure-hugging purple gown.

The stunning dress, which featured a corset-style bust, was encrusted with diamonds all over and featured a long sheer purple train.

The beauty also put on a very leggy display on the red carpet as she had her tanned and toned pins on full display.

She also opted to further elevate her height with a pair of strappy diamond stiletto heels and donned a glam makeup look.

Noticeably absent from the occasion was Bradley Cooper, who stars as composer Leonard Bernstein in the film, as much of Hollywood stays away from the red carpet due to ongoing strike action by the WGA and SAG-AFTRA. 

The Venice Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday, and usually sees some of Hollywood’s biggest stars grace the red carpet to promote their work.

However, this year only a handful of independent productions have permission to be promoted by their stars, with Venice confirming on Monday that Adam Driver and Jessica Chastain will still make appearances at the festival.

Since July 17, Hollywood has ground to a halt as members of the SAG-AFTRA union joined the Writers Guild Of America in going on strike over growing concerns of the use of artificial intelligence and streaming residuals.

According to Variety, a select list of films premiering at Venice have obtained SAG-AFTRA interim waivers since they are independent productions that have not been produced by AMPTP members.

The ongoing SAG-AFTRA Strike, which enters its 45th day of protests, have seen many well-known actors showing solidarity with striking actors by doing one (or several) of the following actions: issuing statements of support of the strikes; joining picket lines in LA, New York City; and donating/handing out water bottles and/or food to the picketers.

Among the well-known names who took part in the picket lines in either Los Angeles or New York City include Jason Sudeikis, Susan Sarandon, Vanessa Hudgens, Mandy Moore, Logan Lerman, America Ferrera, and Josh Gad, to name a few.

The U.K. actors union Equity held rallies in London and Manchester on July 21 in support of SAG-AFTRA Strike. Brian Cox, Jim Carter, Hayley Atwell, David Oyelowo, and Oscar-nominated actress Imelda Staunton, were in attendance.

While there has been little movement in talks between the AMPTP and SAG-AFTRA, discussions with the WGA appear to have reached a stalemate.

The sides have not met since August 18 when the AMPTP rejected a counter-offer from the WGA, and since then there’s been no move to resume talks. 

SAG-AFTRA told members in an email on Sunday that the negotiating committee is ready to return to the table ‘at a moment’s notice,’ but so far there has been little progress.

The Venice Film Festival: Everything you need to know

The Venice International Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world, with its 80th edition opening on Wednesday.

Here is everything you need to know…


The festival opens on Aug. 30 with the premiere of Italian World War Two film Comandante, directed by Edoardo De Angelis. The event runs until Sept. 9 and closes with a Spanish-language Netflix drama ‘Society of the Snow’.


The Festival takes place on the Venice Lido – the so-called beach of Venice — a thin barrier island in the Venetian Lagoon, which is a short boat trip from the main city of Venice. Unlike Venice itself, cars have access to the Lido.


The festival marks the start of the awards season and regularly throws up big favourites for the Oscars. Eight of the past 11 best director awards at the Oscars went to films that debuted at Venice.

Movie stars and directors traditionally enjoy travelling to the lagoon city to launch their films. 

However, this year will offer a bit less sparkle than usual as the Hollywood actors’ strike will prevent many stars from promoting their work.


There are several categories making up the official selection of films shown, the top being those competing for the coveted Golden Lion award.

This year’s 23 contenders, in order of their screening, are:

Comandante, Director: Edoardo De Angelis

El Conde Dir: Pablo Larrain

Dogman Dir: Luc Besson

Ferrari Dir: Michael Mann

The Promised Land, Dir: Nikolaj Arcel

Poor Things Dir: Yorgos Lanthimos

Finally Dawn. Dir: Saverio Costanzo

Maestro. Dir: Bradley Cooper

Adagio, Dir: Stefano Sollima

Die Theorie Von Allem, Dir: Timm Kroger

The Killer, Dir: David Fincher

The Beast. Dir: Bertrand Bonello

Evil Does Not Exist, Dir: Ryusuke Hamaguchi

Priscilla, Dir: Sofia Coppola

Green Border, Dir: Agnieszka Holland

Enea, Pietro Castellitto

Origin, Dir: Ava DuVernay

Me Captain, Dir: Matteo Garrone

Lubo, Dir: Giorgio Diritti

Holly, Dir: Fien Troch

Woman Of, Dir: Malgorzata Szumowska, Michal Englert

Memory, Dir: Michel Franco

Hors-Saison, Dir: Stephane Brize


Like other festivals, Venice reserves a number of spots for interesting movies that are shown out of competition. 

Amongst those on offer this year are The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial by U.S. director William Friedkin, who died this month; Coup de Chance, Woody Allen’s first French-language picture;’The Palace, by Roman Polanski; The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, a short feature by Wes Anderson; Aggro Drift, directed by Harmony Korine and starring rapper Travis Scott.
