George Clooney might have been the star of the show at the Fantastic Mr. Fox premiere in London on Wednesday, but it was his Italian girlfriend Elisabetta Canalis’s red carpet outfit that really wowed the crowd. The Milan-based television presenter remained loyal to her roots with a head-to-toe Italian outfit. Wearing a long black asymmetric dress with leather detailing by Emilio Pucci, fresh from the label’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection accessorized with Giorgio Armani heels and a Corto Moltedo ‘Susan Bow’ clutch bag, the look was Dolce Vita glam at its best. Gabriele Corto Moltedo, who has a celebrity fan base including Madonna and Naomi Campbell, couldn’t be happier that Canalis chose to wear his bag. “Elisabetta is as graceful as she is sexy,” he tells PEOPLE from his Paris boutique. “Plus, she is super fun and a fellow Italian, it’s perfect!” While stylist and pal Valentina Micchetti tells PEOPLE, “We always choose her outfits together. We are both Italian so, of course, we love Italian designers,” adding “plus we have personal friendships with the designers, so it’s only natural in our eyes.” And Clooney on her arm really does add the perfect finishing touch — bellissima! –Monique Jessen
