The 73rd Venice Film Festival runs from August 31 to September 10 and new films aren't the only thing showing. Many female celebs are wearing gowns with plunging necklines and thigh-high slits so there's a lot of skin on display. The dresses range from almost demure to downright scandalous.
Sistine Rose Stallone, daughter of Sylvester Stallone and supermodel Jennifer Flavin looked ravishing at the premiere of "Hacksaw Ridge" in a dove grey halterneck backless dress with a thigh-high slit.
Giulia Salemi and Dayane Mello caused a stir on the red carpet at the premiere of "The Young Pope" wearing dresses slit to the waist leaving very little to the imagaination.
