This is a message to all of my loyal followers! I am just letting you know that posting will be on a bit of a hiatus until May 3rd while I study, take finals, and move back home out of my dorm. It saddens me that I have not been able to pre-plan posts for this time but unfortunately I will not be able to. On May 3rd I will return with the start of my Cannes Film Festival premiere and photocall wishes! I have started the prep for these posts but school must be my priority right now! Thank you for understanding! I hope everyone will come back on May 3rd for more posting!

***UPDATE*** I can confirm that posting will resume with the Cannes Film Festival starting on May 3rd with a wish for Nicole Kidman please come back!
Newsweek will also be bringing Olivia Munn to the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner on April 27th along with Nicole Kidman. I am actually really looking forward to seeing what the actress will wear to this years dinner. At the Academy Awards back in February I was shocked to see to see Olivia take to the red carpet with the most buzzed about Marchesa gown just for the sake of attending the event. For the dinner I would love to see Olivia wear this black Elie Saab Fall 2013 RTW gown with a halter neck. I think that this gown would look elegant and classic on Olivia. Complete the look with a black Judith Leiber clutch, black Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps, and stunning diamond jewelry. If she pulls all this together then Olivia will wow in a stunning red carpet ensemble.
Hot off her successful run in ‘Cat on the Hot Tin Roof’ on Broadway Scarlett Johanson will be a guest of the Huffington Post at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. Scarlett has really made a lot of questionable fashion choices lately and I am kind of fearful to see what she will bust out for the red carpet this weekend. I would stay safe with this black embellished Ralph Lauren Spring 2013 RTW rouched gown. This is a simple gown that could be elevated to best dressed status with the perfect accessories. First thing that Scarlett would have to find would be the perfect black sandals, like a pair of Dolce & Gabbana
crystal trimmed sandals, as anything else would be the perfect start to accessorizing this look. Now comes color! Add an emerald and black Edie Parker
striped clutch, a pair of Cartier
diamond and emerald drop earrings, and a Cartier
diamond and emerald bracelet and Scarlett will wow me on the red carpet at this dinner.
Sophia Bush will be attending the White House Correspondents Dinner as a guest of NPR on Saturday. I would love to see Sophia, who used to be a red carpet favorite and now not so much, wear this amazing art deco Egyptian inspired Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2013 RTW gold and red gown. Sophia likes to make bold statements with her dressing and this gown would be a big one. Complete this ensemble with a simple pair of gold pumps and a top knot and Sophia will wow on the red carpet.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus plays the character of a Vice President of the United States on the hit HBO comedy ‘VEEP.’ For next week’s White House Correspondents Dinner Julia will be attending the event as herself as a guest of TIME Magazine. For this event I would love to see Julia wear this amazing white gown with black trim from the Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2013 collection. I have been surprised that this gown has not been picked up from the much celebrity loved collection for the event. Complete this look with a blue Edie Parker
clutch and a pair of strappy black pumps and Julia will look outstanding on the red carpet.
Kerry Washington also plays a political heavy hitter on the hit ABC drama ‘Scandal’ so it is no surprise that television network will be bringing her to this years White House Correspondents Dinner. I would love to see Kerry wear this electric blue J. Mendel Fall 2013 RTW gown with an asymmetrical neckline. Kerry Washington doesn’t really wear this color very often but when she does she looks absolutely fantastic. I would just pair this with a pair of metallic Jimmy Choo
electric blue sandals and a fashionable diamond cuff and Kerry will wow in a modern design.
Nicole Kidman will be a guest of Newsweek’s at the 2013 White House Correspondents Dinner on April 27th. I wished for Nicole to wear this black and gold Versace Pre-Fall 2013 for the 2013 Grammy Awards and she did not end up attending that event and this continues to be a gown that I can only see Nicole Kidman wearing. I think that as the biggest name invited to this years dinner Nicole will down play her Academy Award winning style. Nicole is rumored to be a jury member at this years Cannes Film Festival so I think that her look for this event will be very subdued. Complete this look with a pair of black and gold Roger Vivier ‘Rose and Roll’ sandals and a simple black box clutch for the perfect White House Correspondents Dinner ensemble.
For her first White House Correspondents Dinner in 2009 Michelle Obama wore a fuchsia Michael Kors gown, in 2010 a red Prabal Gurung gown, a brown Halston in 2011, and a multi print Naeem Khan in 2012. For this years White House Correspondents Dinner I would love to see the First Lady of the United States wear this black beaded top and white and black rose printed ball skirt from the Naeem Khan Spring 2013 RTW collection. Michelle doesn’t seek to the runways that are not accessible to the public so this amazing ensemble would be perfect. Her new fringe bang hairstyle, a stack of diamond bracelets, and a pair of black strappy kitten heels and all eyes will be on Michelle.
Time has not issued its final list of who will be included in this years Time 100 Most Influential List but there is a list of 153 finalists. Beyonce is one of the members of the finalist poll list. This really has been the year of Beyonce with her Pepsi campaign, her Inaugural and Super Bowl performances, and Mrs Carter World Tour I am almost positive that the pop star will be of the Time 100 this year. For the gala honoring the members of the list I think that this purple Zuhair Murad Pre-Fall 2013 long sleeved gown would be perfect. This gown is sexy and ethereal, a perfect look for Beyonce for this event. Complete this look with a silver and black Edie Parker
checkerboard clutch and a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Ring My Toe’
sandals and Beyonce will rock the red carpet.
Of any of the ladies on this list Gabby Douglas will 100% make this list after her triumphs at the 2012 London Olympics. Gabby has made the red carpet rounds attending all the major red carpet events including the Academy Awards parties, Golden Globes, and Grammy Awards. For this event I would love to see her wear this blue and black Georges Hobeika Signature Fall 2013 RTW gown. Gabby has dressed her muscular gymnast body really well but hasn’t wowed me on the carpet yet and I am hoping that she does next week at the Time 100 gala wearing this stunning gown. Complete this look with a pair of simple black satin peep toe pumps and a sparking Swarovski clutch.
Fresh off her Best Actress Academy Award win and her hit film ‘The Hunger Games’ Jennifer Lawrence is another almost shoe in for a spot on the Time 100 list. Jennifer is a Christian Dior spokesmodel and has slowly grown in to the perfect face for the company after a shaky start. For this event this Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture black/white/ and pale pink tired dress with a lemon bust line would be a perfect option. Complete this look with a lemon clutch and a pair of black sandals and this look is perfectly accessorized for this event.
The fun of the Cannes Film Festival doesn’t all happen on the photocall terrace or the stairs of the Palais de Festivals. The sidewalks of the the exclusive town on the French Riviera are just as full of glamorous fashions. During her time at this years festivals I am looking forward to seeing what Diane Kruger has to offer to the red carpet I am also looking forward to seeing what she wears as she arrives and departs the festival via the Nice airport and on the streets for personal dinners and such. One perfect look would be this amazing Bottega Veneta Pre-Fall 2013 red and white patterned dress. I see Diane getting this dress and shortening it for her everyday wear. Pair it with a pair of gold cage sandal pumps and we are set for the perfect for a dinner out during the festival for Diane. For her arrival to the festival I would love to see Diane wear this Diane von Furstenberg Pre-Fall 2013 ruby colored dress. Pair this dress with a large slouchy Givenchy leather handbag with gold studded accents as well as a pair of gold flat strappy sandals and Diane will be set for a fabulous arrival.
Eva Herzigova looks nothing but the model that she is. Last year the model looks fantastic in her Dolce and Gabbana as well as her Prada looks during the festival. For this years festivals off duty ensembles for Eva I have picked two looks perfect for the French Riviera for Eva. First up I have this simple white Dolce & Gabbana Fall 2013 RTW dress. It is simple yet elegant in it design. Complete this look with a red Prada
bowling bag and red Dolce & Gabbana
lace and crystal encrusted sling back kitten heels for a perfect Cannes ensemble. The other dress is this amazing blue, black, and white Guy Laroche Fall 2013 RTW 70’s inspired dress. This dress paired with a black and blue Bulgari
bag and a pair of nude Jimmy Choo
pointy toe pumps and Eva will shine on the luxurious sidewalks of Cannes on the French Riviera
Anna Wintour shops the runways for her day to day wear and here I have a few things that I think will make the cut into the infamous Vogue Editor-in-Chiefs closet for the upcoming season. Up first we have a stunning black and grey marble print Balenciaga Fall 2013 RTW dress. Anna has worn many looks from the French design house in the past but I think now that Vogue/CFDA favorite Alexander Wang is at the helm we will see more looks from the House than in the past. This black and grey look would be perfect for running around New York City and sitting behind her desk doing day to day activities. Last year Anna was all about her Manolo Blahnik ‘AW’ Sandals
but I am hoping that this year we see her find a new shoe. This amazing Nicholas Kirkwood
black and blue kitten heel would be a perfect compliment for this amazing dress.
This black silk Oscar de la Renta Fall 2013 RTW tweed suit is a total Anna ensemble and would be a perfect look for the slender beautiful editor for a day in at the office. Pair this dress with a pair of nude and black Sergio Rossi
closed toe kitten heel sandals and Anna is ready to take the world by storm. Wearing this she will fit in at any boardroom or photo shoot that she attends.
In the day before the Met Ball Anna Wintour will join the rest of the curators of the Costume Institute’s ‘Punk: Chaos to Couture’ exhibit in a press confrence and preview of the exhibit. For this event I would like to see Anna wear this blue and white Prada Fall 2013 RTW dress. Anna and Prada go hand in hand, like they say ‘The Devil Wears Prada.’ Complete this with the same Nicolas Kirkwood black and blue sandals as I paired with the Balenciaga dress.
