I won’t lie this years Berlin Film Festival official selection is a little lackluster. There are however some stars with real potential to deliver some chic moments on the red carpet. I can almost always count on a Bollywood star to bring a major moment to the red carpet so I am really excited to see what the cast of Gully Boy will bring to the red carpet at their premiere. Alia Bhatt is a 25 year old actress who has rocked looks from Reem Acra, Monsoori, and Zuhair Murad Couture on the red carpet in the past. I am really excited to see what she will bring to this red carpet. The young actress could easily top this years best dressed list. And I wouldn’t doubt it. I would love to see her bring this princess moment from the Ralph & Russo Spring 2019 Couture collection to life on the red carpet. This hot off the runway off white strapless tulle ball gown features a beautifully intricate hand drawn floral print embellished with sequins and silk floss while the sweetheart neckline is trimmed in black silk velvet. This dress could come off as very twee, but from what I have seen of Alia’s style she tends to prefer very sickly sweet looks for the red carpet. I would add a chic and fun shoe statement with black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Peony’ sandals (not that anyone would end up seeing them) with a sleek updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection white opal drop earrings to really make this an absolutely eye catching and romantic moment for Alia to bring to life on this red carpet. I don’t really know what red carpets Juliette Binoche will attend outside of the opening and closing ceremonies at this years Berlin Film Festival, but as the president of the feature film competition I am sure that we will see her a few times over the course of the festival and I am hoping for major moments every time she steps out. She was just in Paris last week taking in several of the couture shows. One of the shows she was seated front row at was the Armani Prive Spring 2019 Couture presentation. I would almost guarantee you that one of Juliette’s red carpet moments over the course of this festival is going to be courtesy of the Italian couturier. Of the 6 looks that I have picked for Juliette to wear this year half are black, but the other three are bold colors. This red and blue column gown from that collection that Juliette took in from the front row which features a red ruched bodice with long sequined sleeves and a square neckline and a micro pleated column skirt was the piece that I really loved for Juliette. The gown was paired with a thick red plastic fringe statement necklace on the runway that I would personally have Juliette leave at home. I would add a sleek bouffant updo, defined eyes, red lips, a red satin Roger Vivier crystal buckle envelope clutch, a pair of red satin Roger Vivier ‘I Love Vivier’ pointed toe pumps, and Chopard Red Carpet Collection intricate diamond and ruby chandelier earrings to finish this look in a bold glamorous manner.
The 2019 Berlin Film Festival opens on Thursday February 7, 2019 and runs through Sunday February 17, 2019.
