Despite their well-earned reputation for doing zip zero in August, not all Europeans are off the grid this week. Over in Venice, the 73rd film festival is chugging along until Sept. 10, and stars such as Naomi Watts, Emma Stone, Alicia Vikander and Amy Adams are on hand to promote their films in a range of ever-changing outfits. Sartorially speaking, the main through line proved to be romantic, feminine frocks in bright and busy floral patterns. Meanwhile, Amy Adams stuck to her personal predilection for sleek minimalism in show-stopping gowns from Tom Ford (her film's director) and Stella McCartney; and Miu Miu dressed a bevy of it-girls in the brand's distinctive mini dresses (and a few Prada gowns) for a dinner celebrating the latest film in the brand's Women’s Tales series. 

Elsewhere, the woman formerly known as Kate Middleton was out and about in a soft pink Lela Rose dress and printed Gap pants. And the youths stepped up to the plate, too, thanks to strong, and very different, looks from North West and "Stranger Things" star Millie Bobby Brown. 

Check out the week's best dressed in the gallery below.
