Kristen showed off her style credentials in a quirky silver embellished white knitted jacket, which she teamed with a pair of chic matching trousers.
The Twilight actress boosted her height in a pair of towering white heels and styled her blonde locks in a retro-inspired do with her fringe cascading to one side.
Kristen is currently hot on the promotional trail for her new Princess Diana biopic, Spencer, which is being released on November 5.
With the sensational first trailer already released, the star is winning early critical acclaim for her portrayal of the late beloved Princess of Wales.
Spencer, directed by Pablo Larraín, will follow just a few pivotal days of Princess Diana’s life, with the story taking place during the festive period at Sandringham.
It isn’t an ordinary family gathering as she secretly knows it is their last festive period together, as she has decided to leave her marriage.
Kristen was joined by fellow A-lister Penelope at the Venice bash, who also showed off some epic glam.
The 47-year-old actress wore a glamorous velvet dress and teamed the slinky number with a chic netted cape effortlessly slung atop her shoulders, adding a pair of pearl-studded black heels to her look.
The age-defying star wore her dark brunette tresses in a tight ponytail and opted for a smoky-eye.
Penelope has been promoting her new movie Parallel Mothers, which premiered at Venice Film Festival on Wednesday.
The acclaimed actress stars as a single middle-aged mother Janis in the flick while Milena Smit plays a single teenage mother, Ana.
The pair bond after giving birth in the same hospital, on the same day, despite their differing views towards motherhood.
