Ksenia Bradner in Monique Lhuillier Fall 2011

The Rome Film Festival came alive again last night as Ksenia Lautner graced the red carpet for the ‘La La Love’ premiere.

I have goosebumps as I’m writing this; Ksenia is beyond breathtaking in her Monique Lhuillier Fall 2011 gown.

Her gorgeous scarlett silk embroidered ball gown with a frayed bodice and velvet ribbon will no doubt make many BDOTY lists.

Ksenia hasn't been on the red carpet much since having a baby, but this is a surefire way to signal to everyone that she’s back.

She accessorized with a Judith Leiber "Jinx the Cat" minaudiere, Christian Louboutin red peep toes, a Tarina Tarantino bow headband, Jean Schlumberger rope pearl earrings and a Cathy Waterman princess cut ring.

BDOTW and maybe BDOTY.
