The first red carpet premiere at the annual film festival sees Clooney suiting up and his co-star Evan Rachel Wood showing off legs, and has Cindy Crawford as well as Diane Kruger among the guests.

A number of Hollywood stars jetted off to Venice, Italy to support the premiere of "The Ides of March" on Wednesday, August 31. Set as part of the Venice Film Festivals opening ceremony, the special screening was attended by George Clooney who has a role in the movie in addition to taking the helming duty.

Wearing a traditional black and white suit completed with a bow tie, he sported a funny face when posing on the red carpet. At a press conference before the premiere, he responded to questions whether he is interested in running for public office, saying "Why would I do that?"

Back at the special screening, leading lady Evan Rachel Wood also stole the spotlight by flaunting some skin in a white floating Alessandra Rich gown. As for her female co-star Marisa Tomei, she opted for a mustard-colored Marios Schwab gown with pearl embellishments which made her look more feminine.

Philip Seymour Hoffman and Paul Giamatti were other cast members who took part in the event, while Ryan Gosling who takes a lead role as a wunderkind press secretary was not present. Nonetheless, the premiere attracted such celebrity guests as Cindy Crawford, who came with husband Rande Gerber, and Diane Kruger.

"The Ides of March" is a political drama about Gosling's Stephen whose meteoric rise falls prey to the backroom politics of more seasoned operatives during a tight presidential primary race. Now he has to choose if he wants to stand up for what he believes in or move his career forward. The movie will head into theaters across the nation on October 7.
