What does Ethiopian model and L'Oreal Paris ambassador Liya Kebede have in common with Italian actress Alessandra Mastronardi? Well, aside from both having attended the 2014 Venice International Film Festival, they also happened to wear matching dresses off the red carpet! Let's take a closer look at their ensembles and then you can let us known which is your favorite by voting above!
Both gals wore silk dresses by Alberta Ferretti that featured watercolor-esque stripes in shades of purple, blue, white, and black. What made them different, however, were the silhouettes!
When Liya arrived in Venice on August 27, she was sporting a bohemian version of the dress with a maxi hemline, plunging neckline, and 3/4-length sleeves. The model paired the dress with flat gold sandals and completed the overall look with her signature soft and natural makeup and loose curly hairstyle.
For a beachside photoshoot, Alessandra opted for a more classic version of the dress. The sleeveless bodice featured a crew neckline, with the hemline reaching just above her knees. Contrasting with Liya's version, the look was more demure and simple. However, similarly to Liya, Alessandra paired the look with a loose wavy hairstyle and natural makeup.
Personally, we really like both looks and think the low-key, lightweight dress was a perfect choice for the setting. But what do you think? Let us know which is your VIFF style favorite by casting your vote above!
