Natasha Lyonne shows off her style credentials in a white minidress while attending the Venice Film Festival event honoring The Whale

Natasha Lyonne looked straight at a magazine on Sunday while attending a Venice Film Festival event honoring The Whale.

The 43-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress exuded glamor in a white minidress that showed off plenty of legs.

Her gown sported diamond-encrusted sleeves and a matching neckline for a touch of sparkle.

She added height to her body with a pair of white heels and a black clutch.

Natasha wore her ginger locks in a voluminous hairstyle and hid her eyes behind a pair of retro white sunglasses.

The event was to support Brendan Fraser’s latest film, The Whale, for which he underwent a physical transformation and wore prosthetics to play a man “living with obesity.”

Its official synopsis reads: “A lonely English teacher suffering from severe obesity tries to reconnect with his estranged teenage daughter for one last chance at redemption.”

Attracting the biggest stars, the film festival is held annually on the island of Lido in the Venice lagoon, with film screenings in the historic Palazzo del Cinema on Lungomare Marconi.

This year’s lineup will see the divisive biopic Blonde, starring Ana De Armas as tragic screen icon Marilyn Monroe, battling it out for the competition’s top prize.

The Whale will also compete alongside films starring Cate Blanchett, Hugh Jackman and Colin Farrell.

Meanwhile, Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, starring her boyfriend Harry Styles, will also debut at the premiere, though it won’t be in competition.

While for the first time in the festival’s history, a Netflix film, Noah Baumbach’s White Noise, will open the proceedings.

Greta Gerwig, Adam Driver and Don Cheadle star in the horror comedy and the film will also be part of the competition category.

Luca Guadagnino’s coming-of-age horror romance Bones and All, starring Timothee Chalamet, will also wrestle in the competition segment, along with Joanna Hogg’s The Eternal Daughter with Tilda Swinton.

Well received: The Whale is a psychological drama that saw Brendan undergo a physical transformation, as well as wearing prosthetics to play a man 'living with obesity' (still picture from film)
