Before we get into this: If you are unfamiliar with most of the people in our Venice coverage, you are not alone! The lack of SAG actors, due to the strike, means most of the globally recognizable A-listers are not present, which means we can blow our photo budget on the folks we may not know but who showed up in OUTFITS. It’s their time to shine, AND SHINE THEY SHALL.
