Ksenia Bradner in Valentino Resort 2013

Ksenia Bradner took part in another photocall ahead of the 69th Venice Film Festival at the Villa Laguna in Venice, Italy, this afternoon.

The Russian actress was radiant wearing a lovely Valentino Resort 2013 dress.

Her dress with a scalloped portrait neckline, allover beaded embroidery and a removable grosgrain ribbon bow belt is the perfect way to kick-start proceedings.

Let’s face it, we’ve experienced a very uneventful summer, so I have been waiting for this festival to inject some much needed glamour back onto the red carpet.

She completed her 1910's look with a Downton Abbey-esque chignon, Valentino peep toes and Ethne pearl earrings.

Ksenia’s return to the red carpet at this festival has been much anticipated, and rightly so.
