I have noticed that when she is on the road promoting her own films that Jennifer Garner does not bring the level of fashion that she does when she is playing the plus one to Ben Affleck. I don’t know if it’s pressure from producers or what but I feel that with each of her promo tours in the past year she has not given me anything to fall in love with. Even with that notion I still hold out hope that Jennifer will give a wow moment on the red carpet at the London Film Fest premiere of her film “Men, Women, & Children.” This Jason Wu Resort 2015 modernist a-line halter gown would look stunning on Jennifer. I think that the icey blueish white color of this gown help give a clean feeling while straying away from what could look very bridal. Jason has been known to remake some of these gowns in other colors and I think that a rich royal purple would also look fantastic on Jenn. I would pair the icey blue gown with a pearl colored Edie Parker clutch, silver pumps, and simple jewels whilst switching in a pair of black pumps for the silver if the dress could be made in purple.
Kate Winslet has never been one of my favorites to see on the red carpet as she usually doesn’t bring anything interesting to the event. With that in mind I picked this black dress from the Marylin Monroe inspired Jenny Packham Spring 2015 RTW collection that features crystal netting on the bodice and sleeves. This is her go to silhouette and color so that she would not be doing anything brand new which is to be expected. Wavy hair, red lips. and a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps would undoubtedly finish off this red carpet ensemble.
I am kinda shocked that while Keira Knightley was at the Toronto International Film Festival that she did not wear a single Valentino ensemble for any of her six ensembles. Because of this fact I figure that Keira will most likely bust out her other favorite designer at the 2014 London Film Festival premiere of “The Imitation Game.” This film took home top honors at TIFF and is mapping its course for the Academy Awards. The film is, at this point, in the running for nods for Best Picture, Best Actor (for Benedict Cumberbatch), and Keira is a positioned for a Best Supporting Actress nod. So for London I would love to see Keira to wear this amazing red Valentino Fall 2014 Couture Grecian draped gown that features a leather waistband. This would make a simple elegant statement for a premiere at a film festival that consistently lacks glamour. I would finish this look with a simple vintage inspired hairstyle, a red lip, and simple eye make up, and a pair of red pumps will finish this stunning red carpet ensemble off for the red carpet.
As the closing night Gala of the New York Film Festival I am sure that the cast of “Birdman” will be digging into the couture closets of the worlds most fabulous designers, again. Emma Stone, who right now Indiewire is saying is a good bet for a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 2015 Academy Awards, worked the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival opening ceremony premiering this film wearing a stunning forest green Valentino Fall 2014 Couture gown, is the one that I am most looking forward to seeing take tot he red carpet at this premiere. I think that this beige to charcoal ombre Elie Saab Fall 2014 Couture cocktail dress that features a subtle cherry blossom print would make the perfect red carpet moment for Emma at the NYFF. This is a simple pretty dress but with Emma’s banged hair in a chic loose up do, a pink lip, and some metallic grey sandals she would have a look that would wow fashion critics from here to Timbuktu.
Naomi Watts did not make it to Venice for the films premiere but I am hoping that she will take to the red carpet come the New York Film Festival. Like I said, Emma wore Valentino Fall 2014 Couture for the Venice premiere and killed it. I think that Naomi should pull her red carpet look from the collection. This white Grecian draped cocktail dress from the Valentino Fall 2014 Couture collection would look stunning on Naomi and I think that she would bring an elegant life to the red carpet in this ensemble. A bold turquoise Bulgari clutch that features stunning stone clasp design, a pair of gold sandals (to compliment the gold hardware of the bag itself), and a pair of stunning Bulgari statement earrings will ensure that Naomi has a killer red carpet moment at the NYFF.
Marion Cotillard will undoubtedly wear Christian Dior whilst promoting her film “Two Days, One Night” at the 2014 New York Film Festival. The film about a mother lobbying to keep her job amongst her co-workers is set to premiere on October 5, 2014. The film has been generating buzz for possible Best Foreign Language Film at the Golden Globe and Academy Award nominations, so Marion might be preparing herself for another awards season red carpet run. I think that this white Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture fringe flapper-esque dress with a single blue spot would be an edgy yet beautiful choice for the actress who just can’t seem to find her footing this year on the red carpet. I think that this is the perfect mesh between something edgy and avant-garde and something that is classic and elegant. This is a line that Marion tends to walk as she chooses her red carpet ensembles and this would be a successful look, but only if styled correctly. I would pair this look with just a simple pair of blue sandals to ensure that the dress does all of the talking and then finish the look off with a sleek vintage inspired updo and a red lip so that you definitely feel the vintage inspiration in the whole look. If she put the whole look together like I say then I think that Marion would have a truly great red carpet look on her hands.
French beauty Lea Seydoux will take to the red carpet at the 2014 New York Film Festival to premiere her film “Saint Laurent” on Tuesday September 30th. The actress has stayed loyal so far thus year to Muccia Prada by only wearing Miu Miu and Prada on the red carpet. I would have expected her to break away and wear some custom Saint Laurent as the film is a biopic on the life and times of the houses late founder. Despite that I figure that Lea will wear yet another Muccia Prada designed frock for the films NYFF premiere. I saw the Miu Miu Resort 2015 collection and loved the idea of layering dresses which was done very chicly within this presentation but none of the full looks would I have picked for Lea to wear. So naturally what would I do? Pick two dresses from the collection that I would layer to give Lea the perfect red carpet look. I would put the flowing navy chiffon dress featured all the way right under the embellished suede shift dress to give a monochromatic statement that reads totally of the 1960’s when the Saint Laurent house was founded. I would finish the look off with a silver box clutch, a chic up do, a bold red lip, and a pair of navy sandals to ensure that Lea gives perfect face on the NYFF red carpet.
While “Get On Up” has been playing in the United States for just over a month now the film will premiere at the Deauville American Film Festival on Friday evening. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer joined the rest of her cast a few times at some casual premieres and junkets for the film. I am hoping that she will glam up with her go to designer Tadashi Shoji for the films Deauville American Film Festival premiere. Last Thursday Tadashi showed the Tadashi Shoji Spring 2015 RTW collection at the tent at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. I would pick this nude lace and silk chiffon cap sleeve slowing gown for Octavia to wear for this red carpet. This is a simple yet elegant style that would work perfectly for this film festival premiere. Finish the look with a gold clutch and a pair of gold sandals to give Octavia a perfect red carpet moment.
Academy Award nominee Viola Davis has been pretty much exclusively wearing Escada on the red carpet this year, and unlike the Octavia/Tadashi exclusive paring the looks are just okay not stellar. I would love to finally see her join the cast at the Deauville American Film Festival wearing this stunning blue tone on tone Vivienne Westwood Resort 2015 taffeta gown that features the houses signature structured draping. I know many are sick of these style of gowns but when a new and interesting style comes along I immediately want to see it on the red carpet. I would finish this look with a dark blue Edie Parker clutch, black sandals, and some simple diamonds accessorize this look perfectly for the red carpet. A chic curly bob and a red lip would complete this elegant classic red carpet ensemble.
