Diane Kruger And Elizabeth Banks Show Us How To Pull Off Autumn Florals At Venice Film Festival

The 72nd Venice Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday and we've already been getting some serious new season style inspiration.

Florals for spring? Groundbreaking. But florals for autumn are about to take over. Think bold, black and toughed up with boots or big accessories.

Diane Kruger arrived in Italy on Tuesday, ahead of the festival, in this 70s-chic Thakoon maxi dress with flowing skirt and dramatic mesh cut outs.

With round sunnies, straw hat and oversized Chanel bag (naturally, she is their brand ambassador), the 39-year-old actress gave us all the perfect example of transitional season dressing.

She then switched it up the next day at the festival jury photocall in this sailor-inspired mini from the Preen Resort 2016 collection.

But in typical Kruger style, she kept things simple and chic by teaming the dress with black socks and Chelsea boots.

Fellow Venice Film Festival jury member Elizabeth Banks also joined Kruger on the red carpet (in autumnal florals, of course).

The 41-year-old actress opted for a Dolce & Gabbana jacquard frock, tailored in a classic A-line silhouette, with the cutest complementing appliqué floral heels by Stuart Weitzman.
