The High Fashion Nuns of VeniceBy Liza Foreman

For centuries, there was a renegade group of nuns in Venice who clung to the lavish fashions and up-to-date styles of the secular world. The higher the heel, the closer to God, right? Crosses dot the tourist maps of Venice, denoting churches and former convents, some of which have been left to crumble into the ground.

Mamma Mia, what a wedding, George! Stunning palazzo, gondoliers'...

Mamma Mia, what a wedding, George! Stunning palazzo, gondoliers' guard of honour, Diana's luxurious hotel... Venetians predict a spectacular day Snugly seated in a wooden-decked speedboat, George Clooney and his bride travel the 80ft across the Grand Canal from Venice's 13th Century city hall to the magnificent Renaissance palace that will host the reception for the most hotly awaited wedding of the year. As they glide over the emerald waters, the film star and his new wife, British lawyer Amal Alamuddin, are flanked by a procession of decorated gondolas, while onlookers line the nearby Rialto Bridge.

Carnival of the Animals

After a good dinner one evening, with excellent company and a bottle of wine, I settled by my fire with a volume of paintings by the 15th-century Venetian painter Vittore Carpaccio. For much of my life I have been under the spell of this artist.

HELLO! diary: Vanity Fair Party at the Venice Film Festival

HELLO! diary: Vanity Fair Party at the Venice Film Festival I'm fairly used to covering a party or red carpet, but when I was asked to fly out to Venice to attend Vanity Fair 's Rising Stars party last weekend I had to pinch myself hard before I could believe it. Every year Venice plays host to the world's oldest and perhaps most glamorous film festival - the Cannes Film Festival might be more famous, but it's hard to argue with making your red carpet entrance from a speedboat, so I quickly prepared for the most A-List experience of my life.
