Venezia72 – Celebrity star spotting at the Venice Film Festival 2015
Venice Film Festival opened with a bang last week and hosts a number of premieres and red carpets each year, but you don’t have to get all dressed up, or to brave the fan-zone crush to star spot!
The red carpet at Venice Film Festival awaits!
I spent a warm Venetian afternoon on the Lido, outside the Excelsior Hotel this week to prove my point and here are the celebrity results – not a bad afternoon’s work, even if I do say so myself! And I even managed to catch a little bit of sun into the bargain!
