2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 31

I just have 9 more sets of wishes for the 2020 Met Gala after today. We still don’t know when this years event will be rescheduled for, or if a gala will be anywhere near as big of an event as it usually is. The sad thing about all of this is that the Metropolitan Museum of Art is celebrating 150 years this year. The actual anniversary of it’s opening was last week and was celebrated with a couple posts on Instagram and its doors still closed due to the COVID-19 crisis. I am really hoping that this years Met Gala will honor the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” and give big glamour moments to the red carpet. Help us enjoy some glamour when we are on the recovery from all of this mess. One way I am honoring the idea of the duration of fashion with my 2020 Met Gala wishes is to dive into the archives of several different labels. Regular readers will see that I have dove into the Atelier Versace archives four times already for this years Met Gala with wishes for Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, Stella Maxwell, and Camila Cabello so far. I have one more wish to pull a gown out of the Versace archives this time for Anya Taylor Joy wearing this white and pink strapless Atelier Versace Spring 1995 Couture satin ball gown which features a beaded neckline and geometric Klimt inspired embellishments on the tiered sides of the gown. I don’t know what it was about this gown that really spoke to me for this red carpet. I think it was the art inspiration and the fact it is an archive moment that spoke to me. Anya definitely takes a page out of the quirky textbook for most of her red carpet looks. One of her most recent looks was a vintage Bob Mackie gown at the premiere of Emma which took inspiration from the Edwardian era. This major 90’s moment would definitely be a risk, but one I think that Anya would totally be able to sell to me on the red carpet especially if styled with a big bun updo, metallic rose gold lined pink eyes, dark rose pink lips, gold glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Misty’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of dazzling white and pink diamond David Morris teardrop burst earrings.I definitely have a couple more wishes for stars to wear Louis Vuitton on the red carpet at this years Met Gala. As Nicolas Ghesquiere, the Louis Vuitton womenswear creative director, is a co-chair of this years Met Gala and that Louis Vuitton is a sponsor of this years gala I am sure that we will see several looks from the luxury fashion house on this years red carpet. Now while the Nicolas does not design menswear for Louis Vuitton, that responsibility falls to Virgil Abloh, I am sure several LV menswear moments will be seen on this red carpet. Cody Fern, known for his performances in American Crime Story: Versace and American Horror Story: 1984, made his Met Gala debut last year wearing Maison Margiela. Since then the gender fluid actor has rocked red carpets wearing several LV by Ghesquiere looks. While I would usually look at the womenswear labels for a look that toes the line between masculine and feminine for Cody this midnight blue Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh Fall 2020 Menswear suit which features ruffled details on the lapel, waist, and cuffs does just that. I think this look is a real statement, but also speaks a bit to the idea of modern, timelessness. The styling of this look is what will make it a really major moment on the red carpet so I would style the look with a black monochrome Louis Vuitton ‘Petite Malle’ clutch, a pair of silver glitter Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Gzxswaelee’ light blue lightning embroidered ankle boots, and a selection of Louis Vuitton High Jewelry pieces including a ‘Orangerie des Tuileries’ white diamond, tsavorite, and tanzanite brooch and a major ‘Emprise’ aquamarine and white diamond cocktail ring.It has been a while since Liv Tyler has walked the red carpet, but with a hit series in 9-1-1: Lone Star that has been renewed I feel like it is time for her to make that red carpet return. Over the years Liv has worn looks from Givenchy and Calvin Klein, but some of her best moments have come from Stella McCartney. From their matching ‘Rock Royalty’ t-shirts in 1999 to the super retro glam moment Liv had in the label in 2009 the two are bonded over having rock and roll legends for fathers and a love of fashion. I would love to see Liv back on the red carpet this year as a guest of Stella McCartney wearing a custom gown inspired by the Stella McCartney Fall 2020 RTW collection. This beige v-neck gown gives me a vibe that meshes 1940’s glam, modernist, and a hit of Japanese inspiration all wrapped into one package. It is cool for sure and one of the few gowns that Stella has actually shown on a red carpet. The look is super cool, but it needs some modifications to be perfect for this red carpet. First thing I would do is change the color from the beige to a maroon that another gown from this collection was rendered in. The other thing I would love to see Stella do to customize this gown is make sure it has a dramatic train. I feel like those modifications would definitely make this a superb moment for Liv to wear on her Met Gala red carpet return. A retro updo, defined smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a silver Judith Leiber Couture ‘Enchanted’ chain handle crystal embellished clutch, a pair of black satin Stella McCartney ankle strap sandals, and Lauren Adriana ruby and diamond drop earrings from Fred Leighton would ensure this look is just that, major. As the first lady of Kering we always see Salma Hayek wearing looks from the labels that her husbands company owns. Most of the time this culminates in Salma wearing a lot of custom Gucci ensembles on the red carpet. I decided to go off her normal Gucci moment for Salma to wear on the Met Gala red carpet this year instead picking this silver Swarovski crystal embellished Balenciaga Fall 2020 RTW long sleeve column gown. This gown is super modern and classic and a glamour all at the same time. Now this look is completely covered up. Salma usually loves to show off her ample bosom on the red carpet,  but I love the idea of this super covered moment for her instead. It would be a refreshing change of pace. If the look is too covered for Salma, maybe Demna Gvasalia would create a custom version with a cutout back. Now I decided to style this look with accessories from different Kering owned labels including a black snakeskin Gucci ‘Broadway Butterfly’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of black satin Saint Laurent ‘Hall’ silver crystal embellished ankle strap platform sandals, and a pair of dazzling Boucheron ‘Verrière’ tassel earrings set with emerald beads, paved with diamonds, on white gold, titanium and puffed glass. A sleek bun updo, smokey eyes, and bold deep red lips would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Salma.When I was looking for people who were sitting front row at the recent Fall 2020 RTW runway shows for inspiration for who should be invited to the 2020 Met Gala I kept seeing Saweetie. To be honest I had no idea who she was before starting to look at the front rows. Over the course of this last season of shows we saw Saweetie front row at Moschino, The Blonds, Michael Kors, Brandon Maxwell, and Prada. It was that coupled with her dating Quavo from Migos that made them the perfect couple to rock these Prada Fall 2020 ensembles on the Met Gala red carpet. Let’s start by breaking down the look I’ve picked for Quavo. This black silk nylon Prada Fall 2020 Menswear collection co-ord which is a cross between a 70’s tuxedo and pajamas was definitely a look I was drawn to and thought would make a perfect look for this years Met Gala. Now I originally thought of this look for Timothee Chalamet, but after he wore a similar formal meets athleisure Prada ensemble (which many likened to a valet attendants uniform) for the Oscars I didn’t think that he would wear this look for the Met. I do think that Quavo would definitely be able to sell this look to me on the red carpet styled with his signature dreads, black Christian Louboutin ‘Rock Moc Flat’ silver pyramid studded thick soled penny loafers, a pair of black Prada geometric aviator style sunglasses, and a statement Jacob & Co. ‘Rasputin Tourbillon’ white diamond and black leather watch. For Saweetie I decided to customize this black fringe and velvet Prada Fall 2020 RTW sleeveless dress which features a bodysuit construction, beaded detail on the neckline, and carwash pleats. I think that making sure this dress hits the floor perfectly adding some beaded fringe details into the fringe on the skirt would definitely make this a stand out Prada moment on the Met Gala red carpet especially if styled with sleek updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a black silk and silver rock crystal embellished Prada clutch, a pair of black Prada crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, a pair of Jacob & Co. High Jewelry 26 carat white diamond art deco chandelier earrings, and a Jacob & Co. High Jewelry asscher cut white diamond 92 carat bracelet. These two would definitely be on the list of best dressed couples of the evening for sure.
