Gwyneth Paltrow has just returned from hob-nobbing with fellow stars at the Venice Film Festival, where she launched her new film Contagion.
And the Hollywood beauty was keen to share the whole experience with her fans.
The 38-year-old star blogged about the weekend, posting candid shots on her website Gloop.
Some of the shots show her without makeup, in others she is glammed up to the max and enjoying the best the city has to offer.
"It was just over 48 hours of jam-packed happenings and the food was sublime," says the actress.
