2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 28

This set of wishes feature looks for 4 people who are no stranger to the Met Gala red carpet and one who I have wanted to see walk those famous steps for a long time. I am not going to lie I am starting to run out of ideas for these intro paragraphs. I was hoping some more articles expanding on what this years theme will consist of were going to be released as pieces from the May VOGUE issue started to be released. In the looks today you are going to find sleek modern glamour, classic corsetry, archive Chanel, a fun and unexpected moment, and a cape that is to die for. So let’s dive into these wishes shall we?In her two Met Gala appearances thus far Celine Dion has opted to bare leg with bodysuit ensembles from Atelier Versace and Oscar de la Renta. For her appearance this year, if she so chooses to attend, I turned back to Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim who designed Celine’s champagne beaded fringe Oscar de la Renta ‘Follies’ inspired moment last year. While it is the same designers I turned to their fledgling label Monse for the perfect gown for Celine to wear on this years red carpet with this silver sequined asymmetric gown which features a single sleeve, asymmetric hem, and a thigh high split. This gown still shows off Celine’s fantastic legs in the best way possible. I would keep the gown as it was presented, mostly. The only change I would make to this ensemble is lengthening the train so it is super long. A sleek bun updo, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of black strappy Gianvito Rossi ‘Eclypse’ patent leather pointed toe strappy sandals, and a selection of Yessayan High Jewelry including a pair of white diamond half circle ear clips, a white diamond row cuff, and a statement white diamond two finger cocktail ring would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. It would make for a major Monse moment on the Met Gala red carpet. Halsey has walked two Met Gala red carpets. One she wore a suit dress with sneakers by DNKY and the other she wore warrior princess Prabal Gurung Atelier. Last year in Prabal Halsey went so dark on the bronzer that it verged on blackface and cultural appropriation. Now I am hoping that we see the singer on this years red carpet, but delivering something superb. I turned to Vivienne Westwood and this signature electric blue draped corset moment from the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood Fall 2020 RTW collection. I definitely can see this being a superb moment on Halsey. This super classic Westwood design fits in with this years theme perfectly because while this is a style we have seen many times in many different iterations from the label the idea has endured the test of time and continues to be something to be excited about on the red carpet. I think that Halsey has the edge and poise to really sell this look to me on the red carpet. Like most looks from the ready to wear runways I would love to see Vivienne Westwood customize this gown for the Met Gala red carpet adding a long train making sure it is dramatic enough to stand out on this red carpet. Now as Halsey isn’t afraid of taking risks when it comes to styling so I loaded this look up with a 40’s victory roll inspired red haired updo, thick winged eye liner, bold red lips, a pair of blue satin Badgley Mischka ‘Kiara’ platform peep toe pumps with a crystal embellished heel, and a selection of MAJOR Bayco High Jewelry including their ‘Ultimate’ collar necklace made up of 217 carats of marquis cut white diamonds and an oval shaped blue sapphire and white diamond cocktail ring. Putting this look together like this would absolutely make sure that Halsey owns this look. Going from one major moment to another I decided to go for something a lot more dramatic than what we are used to seeing from Lily Rose Depp. As I’ve mentioned I have pulled a lot of archive moments for this years Met Gala wishes. I found this major white Chanel Spring 2009 Couture ensemble which features a cap sleeve structured sequin tunic top, a pair of fitted sequin pants, and a ruffled floral train and thought this would be amazing on Lily. She doesn’t typically do big ruffles or trains, but I feel like the whole tunic and pants thing is definitely right up her ally. It would be a superb moment to honor this years theme by pulling something out of the archive as well as a moment to honor the late Karl Lagerfeld again. Now to pull this look together I would also want to see Lily pull those white satin block platform sandals that the look was paired with on the runway adding a sleek bun, structured cheek bones, thick winged eyes, rose pink lips, and a pair of Chanel High Jewelry ‘Roubachka’ white diamond and cultured pearl wing drop earrings. A couple of years ago Anna Wintour implemented a minimum age requirement to attend the Met Gala. A VOGUE spokesperson said that the decision had been made because “it’s not an appropriate event for people under 18”. Well Kiernan Shipka crossed that threshold two years ago and I am just waiting for her to deliver a major Met Gala moment. I fell in love with Kiernan’s style as she grew up in the public eye as a star of the hit show Mad Men. Now she is one of the biggest characters on Netflix when as the title character in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. I was on the hunt for Met Gala dresses and looking for information on something from Nina Ricci when I saw this strapless nude organza and maroon 3D laser cut floral embellished trapeze cocktail dress from the Nina Ricci Spring 2020 RTW collection. I was originally only going to do the one Nina Ricci look for this set of wishes that I did for Allison Williams, but when I started thinking of this perfectly shapeless mini dress being turned into a high low gown with a long train for Kiernan I knew it was a major look that would be perfect for this red carpet. This flounced hem dress is a new signature for Nina Ricci under the creative direction of Rushemy Botter & Lisi Herrebrugh. I feel like this would be a superb major moment for the label and for Kiernan to have on her first Met Gala red carpet. I think this gown with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a pair of custom dyed to match maroon Roger Vivier ‘Marlene Strass’ ankle strap sandals, and simple yet dazzling Sutra white diamond and ruby pendant drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Up last in today’s wishes is cape coat I am dying to see reside inside my own closet. Regular readers will know I have a duality of feelings when it comes to Dior. When it comes to womenswear and Maria Grazia Chiuri I am so far from a fan, but when it comes to what Kim Jones has done at Dior Men I am obsessed. I love that he has taken into the Dior archives for inspiration for prints, silhouette, and embellishments. For this black and silver cape coat from the Dior Men Fall 2020 Menswear collection Kim found inspiration for the silver beading on the cape from a dress designed by Marc Bohan for the Dior Fall 1969 Haute Couture collection. I only picked this one look from Dior Men for the Met Gala, because when the look is this good you don’t need multiple options. I turned to the face of the Dior Homme fragrance Robert Pattinson to bring this piece to life on the red carpet. When Rob does fashion right it works oh so well, but sometimes it doesn’t. To make this look come together perfectly I would place this cape on Rob’s shoulders while he is wearing a custom made to measure black Dior Men ‘Oblique’ tuxedo with the same pattern embellished on the blazer, a black button down shirt buttoned all the way up, a pair of classic black patina calfskin Dior Men derby shoes, a clean shaven face, and his signature tousled hair. If everything came together as I imagine it this could be one of Rob’s best red carpet moments ever.
