Dame Helen Mirren and Jennifer Lopez were among the A-listers attending Dolce & Gabbana’s star-studded fashion show in Venice.

The storied luxury fashion brand unveiled its latest Alta Moda collection at a glitzy event in St Mark’s Square.

It attracted a galaxy of Hollywood stars, with Dame Helen, an Oscar winner for her big-screen portrayal of the Queen, arriving in a couture gown fit for royalty.

An embellished gold corset was teamed with sheer sleeves and a vast skirt printed with Renaissance paintings.

Dame Helen, 76, shared the outfit to Instagram and wrote: “I had a strange and wonderful dream last night.

“I dreamt I was in Piazza San Marco in Venice, dressed like a member of the Contarini Family, and before me appeared many beautiful goddesses dressed in heavenly clothes, as a rainbow and lightening appeared and thunder rolled, and as the vision disappeared a beautiful rain began to fall and then the following happened!”

Dame Helen shared a picture showing her dancing with her Fast & Furious co-star Vin Diesel, 54.

She captioned that snap: “I danced in the rain with VIN DIESEL!”

Lopez, 52, wore a similarly opulent outfit.

Her floral-print ensemble was complete with a matching cape and sparkling headpiece.

In her social media posts celebrating her trip to Venice, Lopez described the fashion show as “simply magical”.
