Brad Pitt was among the stars on the red carpet as the curtain was raised on the Venice International Film Festival.
The actor, 55, wore a tuxedo for the premiere of his latest film, Ad Astra.
The intergalactic drama sees Pitt playing astronaut Roy McBride, who is blasted into deep space on a mission to save the world.
Pitt was joined on the carpet by co-star Liv Tyler, who plays his on-screen wife Eve.
Tyler, 42, looked every inch the Hollywood star in an off-the-shoulder black gown.
Scarlett Johansson was at the festival for her film Marriage Story, in which she stars opposite Adam Driver.
She turned heads in a red strapless gown with a thigh-high split, teamed with matching red heels.
Johansson’s Marriage Story co-star Laura Dern was also on the carpet.
Academy Award-nominated Dern, 52, wore a printed green gown with velvet trim.
Model Kate Upton posed for photographers in a low-cut black gown complete with thigh split.
Upton, who welcomed her first child in November last year, also wore a statement necklace.
And supermodel Bar Refaeli was another star spotted at Venice.
She wore a floor-length black dress for the occasion.
The Venice International Film Festival continues until September 7.
