Isabelle hid behind a pair of tinted sunglasses and she had painted her lips in a subtle shade of red lipstick.
The silky material of her ensemble reflected the colour of the red walkway of the dock and the sunshade above, giving her clothing a pink hue when she walked in the shade.

However, the actress would like to make any potential character a bit ‘more lovable’ if she appeared in film by the legendary studio.
She told Variety: ‘It’s scarier when you make them a bit more lovable and attractive and more manipulative instead of doing it like a classical villain.’
Isabelle appeared in 2019 Netflix movie White as Snow, a twist on the traditional Snow White tale.
She played hotelier Maud who worries about her stepdaughter Claire, with Claire being the subject of Maud’s envy.

On playing the character, she explained: ‘I loved playing Maud. She is the victim of her own passion and she is this woman who is madly in love.
‘She is destroyed by that love and she becomes that monster. It’s a very contemporary interpretation of the bad and the good and desire.
‘I thought it was so interesting to show the myth of Snow White through this new lens.’
The 2021 Venice Film Festival will take place from 1-11 September, and is considered one of the world’s oldest awards ceremonies and one of the ‘Big Five’ events.
Last year’s occasion saw a significantly smaller number of guests in attendance, will all red carpet arrivals required to adhere to social distancing, with temperature checks and mask wearing mandatory at the event.
Despite its return, this year’s festival is still adhering to strict Covid guidelines, following a rise in cases in Italy.
