Florence Welch's frock didn't wow us.

The Venice International Film Festival started on August 29 with the premiere of "The Reluctant Fundamentalist" and ends with the closing ceremony on September 8. As with all red carpet events, there's a big spotlight on the fashion. While many celebs showed off their best looks at the event, a handful flopped and faltered with their fashion picks. We already chose Isabella Ferrari and Laetitia Casta as the worst dressed stars from the August 29 premiere and opening ceremony, but who were some of the other worst dressed ladies from the first half of the Venice International Film Festival?

Isabella Ferrari

Once again, she earned her place on the worst dressed list. The Italian actress wore a boring nude Emilio Pucci knee-length dress that had long sleeves, a sheer panel at the neckline, pockets and a slit up the center of the skirt. She wore her hair up and finished the look with nude pumps. Easily one of the most unattractive and yawn-inducing frocks from the first half of the festival. Even her 14-year-old daughter, Nina, was dressed better.

Angelababy

The 23-year-old Hong Kong actress attended the premiere of her movie "Tai Chi O" while wearing a strapless lime green Georges Chakra gown that had beading, a pearlescent sheen, poofy baby blue and peach embellishments and a chiffon train. While her hair and makeup looked lovely, there's nothing positive to say about the gown.

Florence Welch

The singer is known for her funky and mismatched looks, so it's no surprise she continued with the same style at the Venice International Film Festival. Her ensemble consisted of a Miu Miu clashing shirt and pants, chunky black heels and a large purple clutch. While we basically needed sunglasses to glance at her red carpet look, we wouldn't expect anything less.

Olga Kurylenko

The Ukranian actress is gorgeous, however, the Valentino frock that she wore to the premiere of "To the Wonder" was anything but attractive. The black sleeveless gown consisted of a leather and lace bodice with a multi-tiered tulle skirt. The combination of textures was way too much and it looked more like a cheesy dress Halloween costume dress than a red carpet gown. At least her up-do, makeup, clutch and dangling jeweled earrings were lovely.

Which is your least favorite look from the first half of the Venice International Film Festival?
