We can always count on Venice Film Festival to give us some epic red carpet looks, and this year is no exception. Black and white dresses were the biggest hit with the attendees this year, and these five stars already gave this trend their seal of approval.

Penelope Cruz

Penelope Cruz’s partnership with Chanel is a gift that keeps on giving. She wore several black and white looks by this fashion house, but none compares to this charming gown.

Milena Smit

The rising star Milena Smit, who appears alongside Cruz in Parallel Mothers, also rocked our world in Venice with her sculptured black and white dress by Balmain.

Tiffany Haddish

Haddish also couldn’t resist this rising trend and attended the premiere of her latest movie The Card Counter in a Christian Siriano gown with a white bodice and elegant floor-sweeping train.

Maggie Gyllenhaal

Gyllenhaal has always been a huge fan of simple colors, so it’s not a surprise to see her embrace the black and white trend in a floor-length Prada dress with dramatic white sleeves.
