Last night (September 13) Jenna attended the ATG Summer Party At Kensington Palace Gardens. Photos of her attending the Event have been added to our gallery, enjoy!
The actress wore an archive Armani Privé dress from 2017
It’s Jenna Coleman’s first time attending the Venice Film Festival. We’re sat in her room while she’s getting ready for the evening – her clad in a fluffy Giorgio Armani bathrobe – with The Beatles playing in the background. “We’ve had a real [music] mix tonight!” she says, laughing. “We’ve had The Godfather soundtrack, we’ve had some soft ’60s on Spotify…” The mood is comfortable and relaxed, helped in part by Coleman’s longstanding relationships with her glam team. “I’ve known Valeria [Ferreira, make-up artist] and Halley [Brisker, hair stylist] for years, so there’s such an easy dynamic,” she tells me.
Of course, this isn’t business as usual for the film festival. This year’s schedule has been severely impacted by the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike, which prohibit actors from promoting any work. But instead of attending a red-carpet premiere at the Lido, Coleman is in Venice as a guest of Armani Beauty, one of the festival’s lead sponsors, and preparing to attend the Giorgio Armani ‘One Night Only’ couture show that evening.
Below, the actress discusses the kind of fashion she gravitates towards, her go-to beauty product for red-carpet events and why what we wear, matters.
Talk us through your look for this evening. Why does it feel like a good fit for you?
“So we’ve gone for an archival Armani Privé dress tonight from 2017. We were going to go in a very light direction originally, but then we put this on… It’s got a lot of gothic, dark drama to it. It’s full lace and beaded, black. So there’s something quite Tim Burton, darkly romantic about it, which I love. For jewellery, I’m wearing De Beers – these are lotus flower earrings with the lotus flower necklace, too. We then sleeked the hair right back for full drama.
“Today I worked with Valeria – who’s been doing my make-up for years – and one of the first things that we did together was for the opening of Victoria at Kensington Palace. I wore an Erdem dress and went for that same kind of romantic look then. So it’s a similar vibe, touching upon a slight bit of gothic romance.”
