Venice Film Fest: Top 10
What's Celebuzz most looking forward to at the fest?
Winona Ryder defied age on Thursday as she stepped onto the red carpet for the Venice Film Festival premiere of her new movie The Iceman.

Ryder, 40, stunned in a black laced dress by Dolce and Gabbana, which she matched with a small black clutch and long, dangling earrings. She was joined on the carpet by her co-stars, Ray Liotta and Michael Shannon.

The film, which opened to stellar reviews, stars Shannon as real-life contract killer Richard Kuklinski.

Ryder, who looks as good here as she did at the peak of her career in the ’90s, has kept a mostly low profile after she was caught shoplifting at Saks Fifth Avenue, in 2001.

Her most recent film credits include Black Swan and a brief, slightly bizarre, cameo in the 2009 blockbuster Star Trek.

Later this year, she’ll lend her voice to the Tim Burton animated movie Frankenweenie, out Oct. 5. Check out the trailer, below.
