Julianne wore a fresh-off-the-runway dress asymmetric midnight gown by Giorgio Armani in Rome last night, as she continued the the promotional rounds for her much-lauded film The Kids Are Alright.

Moore, who plays a lesbian parent in the film, slammed Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, who earlier in the day dismissed recent opposition calls to resign over his latest scandal over his relationship with a 17-year-old girl by saying that "it is better to like beautiful girls than be gay."

Speaking at the Rome film festival, Moore hit back. "To hint or to say that there is something wrong with homosexuality . . . it's embarrassing when people continue to perpetrate these untruths", she said, "I think it's unfortunate, archaic and idiotic."
