Venice Film Festival 2021: Olivia Colman looks typically chic


Olivia Colman was a vision as she hit the red carpet at Venice Film Festival on Friday night for the premiere of The Lost Daughters.

The actress, 47, looked typically chic in a silver and black velvet suit as she joined her co-star in the movie Dakota Johnson and the project’s director Maggie Gyllenhaal for the star-studded event.

The Crown star had her sense of style on display in the tailored number which featured a shiny lapel with statement buttons and trendy shoulder pads.

She completed her look with a pair of glitzy silver shoes, a dark blue satin clutch and dramatic shiny earrings as she put on a confident display for the cameras. 

The British star wore her short brunette hair swept back and opted for a glamorous makeup look complete with a light pink lip.

Meanwhile Dakota, 31, looked incredible in a plunging silver gown which featured glitzy tassels over the sheer flowing skirt.

The see-through material was embellished with colourful jewels and the inbuilt belt showed off her incredible figure while she wore her dark tresses in tousled waves over her shoulders.

Maggie, 43, opted for a sophisticated look, wearing a high neck navy velvet floor length dress over a white shirt as she posed with her leading ladies.

The Lost Daughter is Maggie’s directorial debut and stars Dakota and Olivia in the lead roles. 

The movie – based on the 2006 novel of the same name by Elena Ferrante – follows the story of Olivia’s character Leda, a college professor on a summer holiday at the seaside. 

Leda becomes obsessed with a woman named Nina (played by Dakota) and her young daughter as she watches them play on the beach. She’s then reminded of the terror and confusion she felt in early motherhood as she watches the mother-daughter duo, as well as their extended family.

‘I felt that way for around six weeks. Then something exploded in my mind and I thought, “you’re so bourgeois”. I’ve been with Peter since I was 23 and I know he loves me and I thought, “there isn’t anyone who could play that part like he could”. Peter did exactly what I thought he would do. He surprised me at every turn.’

She also spoke of moving from acting into directing and revealed she was inspired to make the move while playing a porn director named Candy in TV series The Deuce.
