The most beautiful looks of the Berlinale opening

Glitter, glamour and a flurry of flashbulbs in Berlin! For the official kick-off of the Berlinale 2022, the German stars and starlets were in the capital and dressed up for the premiere of “Peter von Kant”. We take the most beautiful red carpet styles under the magnifying glass.

German film celebrities proved this evening in Berlin that they haven’t forgotten red carpet fashion despite the corona-filled break: From safe all-black looks to lots of sequins, everything was present on this Berlinale evening. Actress Marie Bäumer, for example, strode down the runway in a floor-length Ralph Lauren creation in black and white, while Heike Makatsch also chose black, albeit in the form of a figure-hugging spaghetti strap dress with a silky look:

Sibel Kekilli followed the all-black dress code with her floor-length Tory Burch dress with häkeloptic skirt, but broke the dark look with bright red lips and bright statement earrings.

German actress Connie Nielsen brought international flair to the Berlinale – and secured undisputed first place in our style ranking with her leather outfit. Her floor-length coat dress gave off a certain Matrix vibe, and the severely slicked-back hair did the rest. Quite stylish!

Sequined looks at the Berlinale

It was no less stylish, but much more colorful for presenter Hadnet Tesfai. The 43-year-old first appeared on the red carpet in a knee-length net dress embroidered over and over with colorful sequins, before slipping into a floor-length knit dress in a muted shade of green to lead the evening from the stage.

Iris Berben also liked it sparkly at the Berlinale opening. She chose a bright, calf-length glitter dress with semi-transparent lace trim on the shoulders, arms and hem. Her shoes for the appearance turned out ähnlich little opaque. They were square net pumps with a cute anklet that looked suspiciously Bottega Veneta.
