Kate Beckinsale attended an event in Venice in a transparent dress and gold swimsսit

The actress attended the amFAR gala in Venice, where Carla Bruni and Milla Jovovich also shone, and Rita Ora performed.

The Venice Film Festival continues, and while the red carpet looks sparse due to ongoing actor and screenwriters’ strikes in the US, the annual AIDS fundraiser taking place at the same time attracted a number of high-profile visitors. The Daily Mail writes about this.

To ensure the evening was glamorous, it was attended by actresses Kate Beckinsale, Milla Jovovich and Bella Thorne, who were in northern Italy exclusively for the amFAR charity event.

Opting for a sweeping, sheer dress with glittery gold embellishments, Beckinsale, 50, left little to the imagination. The British star completed the statement look with platform heels.

Also in attendance were Bella Thorne and Leona Lewis, while guests were treated to a performance by Rita Ora, who looked sensational in a dress with a long flowing train and a white sculpted bodice.

The Venice International Film Festival is the oldest film festival in the world. Last week the 80th anniversary festival began. However, the red carpet looked expectedly sparse due to strikes of writers and actors in the United States.

The festival opened with the premiere of the Italian film about the Second World War, Comandante, directed by Edoardo De Angelis.

The event will run until September 9 and will conclude with Netflix’s Spanish-language drama “The Snow Society.”

The festival traditionally takes place on the Venice Lido – the so-called Venice Beach – a thin barrier island in the Venice Lagoon that is a short boat ride from the main city of Venice. Unlike Venice itself, the Lido has access to cars.

The festival marks the start of awards season and regularly nominates top Oscar favorites. Eight of the last 11 Best Director Oscars have gone to films that debuted in Venice.

New films from directors such as Bradley Cooper, Yorgos Lanthimos, David Fincher, Michael Mann, Sofia Coppola, Ava DuVernay and Ryusuke Hamaguchi will compete for the prestigious Golden Lion award.

Nobody in Hollywood wants the strikers to see that he is doing wrong, and the entire film and television industry has come to a complete standstill.

The writers union WGA went on strike on May 2, followed by the actors union SAG-AFTRA on July 14.

Most other stars have no choice but to stay away. Bradley Cooper, who wrote, produced and directed “Maestro,” about conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein, won’t be in Venice to watch what may be the most defining film of his career, coming to Netflix.
