2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

While the ceremony will be shorter this year, the Screen Actors Guild will still hand out its annual awards. The 2021 SAG Awards will air on Sunday, April 4, in a one-hour, pre-taped event, the show’s producers announced in early March. Hostless, and absent the normal banquet and red carpet, the shows producers have revealed that they still have a lot planned to honor the best actresses and actors of the year. I am very interested in seeing what the show will be and even more importantly what the fashion will be. With the abbreviated and pre-recorded show will the stars still turn out gowns and glamour? We will have to wait till Sunday night to find out. In the meantime let’s make a couple more wishes for what could be for this years show shall we? Despite all her nominations this season Cate Blanchett has skipped out on every single virtual awards show and I HATE it. I always love seeing Cate on the red carpet and I am missing her turning out looks. I’ve picked major looks from Alberta Ferretti, archive Armani Prive, and Lanvin and I am continuing that with the look I’ve picked as the must see moment for Cate to wear for the SAG Awards, even if I am doubtful that she will zoom into the ceremony. Cate has long been a fan of Givenchy and has worn looks from all of the brands creative directors. So I would love to see her try to sell me a look from Matthew Williams helm at the brand. I have been imagining Cate wearing this one shoulder white column gown which features a macrame detailed bodice and a tassel detail from the Givenchy Fall 2021 RTW collection. This collection is far from one I really love, but I feel like this gown modified to be lined for modesty (which I am sure will happen for retail) would be a super edgy glam moment for Cate. We usually love Cate more in her classic glam moments, but when she serves up edge I am in love with her looks. I obviously would ditch the coat and style this gown with a sleek updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and statement aquamarine and emerald Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 drop earrings would make this a major fashion moment for Cate. Elle Fanning is nominated with her fellow The Great cast members for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. After her super glam custom Gucci gown with Fred Leighton jewels at the Golden Globe Awards I am dying to see Elle give us a super glam moment for the SAG Awards. Now as she isn’t nominated individually or presenting I’m not sure that we will, but I definitely believe that if this were a normal year that Elle would have served up a MAJOR glam moment. I just fell in love with this white strapless beaded tea length cocktail dress from the Georges Hobeika Spring 2021 Couture collection which features sheer detail, 3D floral embroidery, and POCKETS. I feel like Elle with her classically glamorous sensibility would easily be able to sell this look to me. Cocktail dresses for the SAG Awards aren’t really a norm for me, but I think that with a sleek retro inspired updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white Sergio Rossi ‘Sr1’ crystal studded square toe ankle strap sandals, and a dazzling white diamond Harry Winston teardrop and scroll detailed collar necklace would definitely elevate this look to the level of glamour needed for a major awards show red carpet. Gillian Anderson took home both a Golden Globe Award and a Critics Choice Award for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown. That same performance has earned her a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the 2021 SAG Awards. She is up against her co-star Emma Corrin and I would say that it will most likely be Emma that takes home the Actor. Now in terms of fashion Gillian has exclusively worn Dior Couture this awards season. While I don’t hate her looks I also would love to see her branch out. I know Gillian has some fashion chops and I would love to see her give cozy glamour wearing this petrol blue knit Loewe Spring 2021 RTW long sleeve gown which features multicolored sequined strewn about, a thigh high split, and a knotted sash belt. While a knit gown is not something we would expect to see for any major award shows and I totally understand, but in lockdown I love the idea. Why not take advantage of it now? To make this look SAG Awards perfect for Gillian I would style it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of petrol blue crystal embellished mesh Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania 105’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling white diamond London collection by De Beers ‘Thames Path’ teardrop cluster earrings. There was a huge snub that the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards didn’t nominate Michaela Coel for her performance in I May Destroy You. Well the SAG Awards rectified that and I am hoping that she will bring us a major look. I went through a lot of options when I was thinking about what I wanted to see Michaela wearing for the SAG Awards. Ultimately I decided to go with a customized version of this rose gold sequined Off White Resort 2021 asymmetrical slip style dress which features thin spaghetti straps and the brands name embroidered on the front. I would customize this into a floor length gown with a bit of a train to really make this a glamorous moment for the first time SAG Award nominee to wear for her first ceremony. I would style this custom gown with a short afro, defined eyes, ruby red lips, a pair of rose gold Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ three strap crystal heel metallic leather sandals, and simple yet dazzling 18k pink gold set Hueb ‘Luminus’ white diamond cluster earrings to really make it a MAJOR fashion moment for Michaela to bring to life on the “red carpet.” Phoebe Dynevor might have been the Diamond of Bridgerton and I tell you that had awards season happened like normal that she would have been the Diamond this season as well. She rocked an edgy glam Louis Vuitton cocktail dress from the Critics Choice Awards and for the SAG Awards where she is nominated with her cast for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series I would have love to see her bring something feminine and romantic to the red carpet. I have been thinking about Phoebe wearing this blush pink Chanel Spring 2021 Couture a-line tea length gown which features thin straps, defined waist, tiered skirt, and red and white dot embroidery all over. It is gorgeous and I know that Phoebe would bring the statuesque elegance to the red carpet. I would style it with a sleek updo, soft dewy makeup with light pink lips, red leather Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen 100’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of David Webb jewels including a pair of white diamond and ruby feather drop earrings and a matching ruby and white diamond cocktail ring to really make it scream glamour.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021. You can see all my wishes for this years show here.


2018 Tony Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

There are so many stars going to the Tony Awards this year that I had no choice but to double up and post two sets of wishes a day. What I have loved about the Tony Awards red carpet in recent years is that, thanks to Vogue, that they help bring some of the Broadway stars (who most designers would have shunned prior to Vogue and power stylists like Erin Walsh and Thomas Carter Phillips got involved) into the fashion world. So I have a bunch of the lesser known Broadway stars in these wishes as well picking gowns off runways, out of lookbooks, and off the racks for them to bring to the red carpet on Sunday night. Amy Schumer is NOT one of the ones whom I would expect to have a hard time getting a designer to dress her. She has been dressed by Brandon Maxwell, Zac Posen, Alexander Wang, and Prabal Gurung in the past. On Sunday night I would love to see the Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play nominee bring sleek structured figure hugging elegance to the red carpet on Sunday night wearing this red Roland Mouret ‘Coleman’ stretch-viscose evening gown which features a trapezoid neckline, 3/4 length sleeves, bell cuffs, ha trumpet silhouette. This is a chic dress and I definitely think that Amy would own this dress on the red carpet. My favorite looks of hers tend to come when she picks more of a sporty sleek silhouette and that is exactly what this gown delivers. I honestly have to say that my dream would be to see Amy rock a custom Atelier Versace gown on this red carpet. I think that Amy in a chic Atelier Versace corseted gown with a fitted silhouette and a draped dramatic train would really own this red carpet. But since that has to be custom to really work for Amy I think that if she had to pick a gown off the rack that this Roland Mouret gown would be perfect for this occasion. Sleek straight locks tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, nude lips, red Edie Parker ‘Wolf’ acrylic shard clutch, a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Cupidetta’ leather and PVC pumps, and vintage Cartier diamond cluster earrings all would really make this look one of Amy’s best red carpet moments ever.The Good Fight and Mama Mia: Here We Go again star Christine Baranski is a Broadway veteran and will be on hand Sunday night as one of the nights many presenters! I have to say while she always wears something really chic that Christine isn’t really one to push boundaries. I went through many options for Christine to wear on the red carpet on Sunday night, but ultimately I decided that I would love to see Christine rock this silver Michael Kors Evening Collection long sleeve gown which features a crew neckline, stripe patterned paillette embellishments, and a maxi length hem. 435 artisan hours were required to hand embroider the gown with micro sequins ‘paved’ into a stripe pattern and I definitely think that it would fit with Christine’s style, but really elevate it. She doesn’t usually do embellished gowns like this, but I definitely think that it would be a great option for her to rock on this red carpet. If you can’t do sequins for a Broadway awards show when can you? A silver Edie Parker ‘Flavia’ glitter frame clutch, her signature bob, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of silver Aquazzura ‘Eclipse’ pumps all would really ensure that this is a really beautiful moment for Christine to rock on the Tony’s red carpet. I made a wish for Condola Rashad last year when she was nominated for Best Featured Actress in a Play to rock a Monique Lhuillier gown, but she totally exceeded my expectations wearing a great Vivienne Westwood midi cocktail dress. So since Condola really rocked the red carpet last year I am really excited to see what she will wear this year since she is nominated for Best Actress in a Play for her performance in Saint Joan. On Tony night we tend to see a few ladies trot out in a quintessential New York designer, Zac Posen, and I would love to see Condola snatch a look from the designers just presented Resort 2019 collection. I think that this deep wine red Zac Posen Resort 2019 tulle ball gown which features an asymmetrical draped corseted bodice, full skirt, and a dramatic train. I will say that I have some reservations about picking this gown because despite being from a different collection I still feel like this gown is really similar to the Zac Posen gown that Miley Cyrus wore to perform at the Grammy Awards earlier this year. I do think that if this gown was worn by a big Hollywood star that people would draw more of a comparison so I think that Condola would be the perfect person to bring this dramatic moment to the Tony Awards red carpet. Even though you probably would never see them I would pair this dress with statement dark red satin Claudia Schiffer for Aquazzura ‘Lou Lou’s’ tiered tassel embellished pumps to really make this an absolutely beautiful moment. A sleek center parted low bun, defined smokey eyes, nude lips, and a pair of simple Gemfields ruby teardrop pendant earrings all would really ensure that this is an absolutely statement making moment for Condola. Katrina Lenk is nominated for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical for her role as Dina in The Band’s Visit. I went on a hunt for the perfect dress for Katrina to rock on the Tony Awards red carpet that would be a great follow up to the yellow Monique Lhuillier gown that she rocked last year. That gown was definitely purchased (or borrowed) off the rack and I would love to see that since she is nominated this year that she gets dressed by a major brand. I think that she would be the epitome of glamour wearing this smokey blue Marchesa Pre-Fall 2018 gown which features a strapless sweetheart neckline, beaded tulle column gown with metallic silver outlined threadwork, and tulle overskirt. There has been much of a debate about whether or not Marchesa should be punished in the Weinstein scandal since Harvey apparently wielded his power to help make his wife’s brand a must wear brand in Hollywood. I feel that if Katrina is dressed by a Vogue editor for this years red carpet that we could see her wear the brand after Anna Wintour has delivered full throated support behind Georgina Chapman and her brand. I definitely think that this gown would totally be a mysterious glam moment on Katrina especially when paired with a pair of dark grey glitter Miu Miu jeweled ankle strap sandals, a romantic updo, navy glitter smokey eyes, and a pair of vintage Fred Leighton diamond and aquamarine chandelier earrings. Rachel Bay Jones has not yet been announced as a presenter for Sunday’s Tony Awards, but since she was the winner of the Best Featured Actress in a Musical trophy for her performance in Dear Evan Hansen it would really surprise me not to see the actress back on the red carpet this year. Last year she made a bold statement wearing a turquoise strapless silk faille Christian Siriano ball gown and she looked lovely. I went back to the designer to pick the perfect dress for Rachel to rock this year. I think that this metallic black Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2018 ball gown which features a v neckline, metallic fabric, and allover floral print would be a chic moment for Rachel. It is *slightly* less statement making than her gown last year in terms of color but the embellishments and silhouette definitely make up for that. I think that with a romantic updo, defied eyes, nude lips, black Judith Leiber Couture satin rectangle box clutch, black Jimmy Choo ‘Vanessa’ tie front pumps, and a pair of grey spinel and diamond IVY New York ‘Euryalina’ drop earrings that this would definitely be a perfect look for Rachel to rock on the Tony Awards red carpet.

The 2018 Tony Awards will take place on Sunday June 10, 2018.

2016 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

america-ferrera-2016-emmy-awards-wish-list-1The 2016 Emmy Awards are just 3 days away and I am getting real excited for the red carpet. The stars of television are going to coming out in droves to support their shows, nominated cast mates, and friends. America Ferrera has come back into the spotlight with her role on the NBC comedy Superstore and has been growing with her red carpet style thanks to her new stylist Karla Welch, who also dresses Karlie Kloss, Michelle Monaghan, Sarah Paulson, and Olivia Wilde. My expectations for America are continuing to grow and I am praying that there will be something absolutely amazing from her on the red carpet. After taking in the gorgeous looks presented this week during New York Fashion Week I had to start using them as soon as possible. I think that this bright pink and bronze Zac Posen Spring 2016 RTW strapless, brocade, a-line gown would be an amazing moment for America on the Emmy carpet on Sunday. I would have this gown lengthened to hit the floor, because America is petite and the tea length would make her look shorter than she is. kristen-bell-2016-emmy-awards-wish-list-1I usually either lover or find what Kristen Bell wears on the red carpet too cutesy. I am hoping that when she hits the Emmy Awards red carpet on Sunday night as one of the nights presenters that Kristen is firmly one of the most glamorous woman of the night. I think that this bluish grey J. Mendel Spring 2017 RTW strapless, pleated gown which features and embellished panel on the bodice would be something that is absolutely would ensure that Kristen is set to be one of the most glamorous women on the Emmy Awards red carpet. Chic vintage inspired curls, a pink lip, diamond drop earrings, a silver clutch, and a pair of silver sandals would push this look over the edge. padma-lakshmi-2016-emmy-awards-wish-list-1Padma Lakshmi is not yet on the list of presenters slated for the 2016 Emmy Awards, but she is a fixture on the red carpet. Usually Padma is one of the best dressed of the night. Her chartreuse Romona Keveza gown at last years ceremony was one of my favorites, and the look that received the most re-tweets. Padma is always gorgeous and I am really excited about her Emmy look. I think that this hot off the runway Monique Lhuillier Spring 2017 RTW beaded draped gown would look like sparkling sand draped off of Padma. As someone who usually just attends the show as a guest and has no official capacity I expect that Padma will go for the full glam. This look with gold sandals, sleek hair pinned behind her ears, a crimson lip & diamond cluster earrings would be absolute perfection.priyanka-chopra-2016-emmy-awards-wish-list-1I have been watching Priyanka Chopra hit the red carpet and continue to grow. She has been working with power stylist Cristina Earlich and her looks have been getting better and better. After attending a few shows at New York Fashion Week before jetting to the Toronto International Film Festival I am expecting something really great from Priyanka on the Emmy Awards red carpet. I think that of all the looks that walked the runway at New York Fashion Week that I would really love to see Priyanka hit the red carpet at the Emmy’s wearing this red Oscar de la Renta Spring 2017 RTW ruffled, knit gown. For the most part I would never pick a knit gown for the red carpet at a major awards show but I think that Priyanka has the effortless glamour in her to really make this one of the most gorgeous looks of the night. A chic updo, red lip, gold Edie Parker clutch, diamond cluster earrings, and a pair of gold sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this red carpet ensemble. sophie-turner-2016-emmy-awards-wish-list-1Up last for today is Game of Thrones starlet Sophie Turner. Sophie is not confirmed to attend the Emmy’s Sunday night but I would imagine that the actress, who has been working really hard to promote the series, will be on hand. I went back and forth with what to pick for Sophie since she is not nominated or presenting but I ultimately went with this gorgeous black Francesco Scognamiglio Fall 2016 Couture strapless gown which features silver and fuchsia leaf-like embroidery on the bodice. We got our first major taste of Francesco Scognamiglio on the red carpet when Beyonce showed up and performed at the MTV Video Music Awards. I am hoping that this will be the springboard that he needs to really grow his celebrity following. I think that Sophie with her gorgeous red hair would really make this gown come to life of the red carpet. A chic vintage inspired updo, diamond cluster earrings, a red lip, and a pair of black sandals would really ensure that this is one of the best looks of the Emmy Awards.


2016 Toronto International Film Festival Red Carpet Wish List Part 12

cate-blanchett-tiff-2016-voyage-of-time-premeire-wish-list (1)My wishes for the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival will come to an end today. I was originally going to end at the start of my VMA’s wishes, but then they added a whole slate of new films filled with some of my favorite red carpet ladies and I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to give some of them yet another wish. Cate Blanchett was one of the major factors in that decision. The gorgeous queen of the red carpet is slated to premiere the documentary Voyage of Time, which she narrates alongside of Brad Pitt at TIFF.  Cate has been faltering back and forth between looks I love and looks that I just withstand so far this year and I am hoping that when she is out promoting Voyage of Time that she really pulls out all the stops. For the Venice Film Festival premiere of this documentary I picked a gorgeously glam Armani Prive ball gown for Cate to wear, so I went with something a little more high fashion and impact making for TIFF. This amazing multicolored embroidered lace Alexander McQueen Resort 2017 gown which mixes 70s boho and Victoriana in such a modern way that I am super excited to see what it is going to turn out on the red carpet. Cate is one that I think that the grace and edge to make this look a real winner on the red carpet. A black McQueen clutch, black peep toe pumps, a chic wavy bob, light pink lip, diamond drop earrings, and a smokey eye would make my heart explode as this would probably be one of Cate’s best red carpet looks ever.emily-vancamp-TIFF-2016-boundaries-premiere-wish-list (1)While I may not be Emily VanCamp’s biggest fan when it comes to her red carpet style she has had some pretty good moments in the past. She has not given me a major jaw dropping moment yet, but I think it could still happen. I would love to see Emily hit the red carpet at the TIFF premiere of Boundaries wearing the first couture collection from her go to designer J. Mendel. I am anxiously awaiting the first red carpet moment form the J. Mendel Fall 2016 Couture collection and while Emily might not be the first person to come to mind I think that this black gown which features cold shoulder and all over sheer embroidery0 would be one of her best red carpet looks ever. This very standard style of gown is elevated with all of it’s intricate embroidery which I think would help elevate Emily’s red carpet style. A sleek hairstyle, smokey eye, black clutch & black sandals would really bring this look together perfectly for Emily to rock on the TIFF red carpet.kristen-stewart-tiff-2016-certain-women-premiere-wish-list (1)Kristen Stewart is literally going to be EVERYWHERE over the course of the fall film festival season. I am hoping that Kristen will hit a stride with some killer looks over the course of the next few months. I have lost count of how many films that Kristen is going to be presenting at TIFF but the last one that I have a wish for is Certain Women. After for sure wearing Chanel at the premiere of Personal Shopper I am hoping that Kristen ventures away from the French couture house and shows us some variety on the TIFF red carpet. I think I would actually die if KStew showed up on the red carpet at the Certain Women premiere wearing this absolutely amazing Altuzarra Resort 2017 rust and black ensemble which features an asymmetrical black silk top and a pair of rust beaded sheer pants. This is the type of look that I think could mesh Kristen’s rock and roll persona and high fashion. I am hoping that Kristen finally gets rid of that terrible blonde hair with the worst roots, which is what she wanted, because that has been the downfall of many of her red carpet looks this year. A pair of black Christian Louboutin pointed toe pumps, a black Chanel clutch, edgy hairstyle, smokey eye, and red lip would perfectly finish this look off for Kristen. naomie-harris-tiff-2016-moonlight-premiere-wish-list (1)I was super excited to see that Naomie Harris is going to be at TIFF to premiere her latest film Moonlight. I have been following Naomie since she first came on the scene as Moneypenny in the James Bond film Skyfall since then Naomie has really become a red carpet fashionista and her looks only continue to get better so I have high expectations for her at TIFF. I would love for Naomie to be the first to get her hands on Lanvin Resort 2017, the first collection designed by the labels new creative director Bouchra Jarrar. I think that Naomie would look incredibly gorgeous in this black Lanvin Resort 2016 gown which feature fall colored floral embroidery on a chiffon batwing blouse. Usually Naomie goes for modern glam looks so this very 30’s style gown would be an amazing change of pace for Naomie. A chic vintage inspired updo, nude lip, gold clutch, diamond drop earrings set in yellow gold, and a pair of black sandals would really set this look over the edge.  rebecca-hall-tiff-2016-christine-premiere-wish-list (1)When she first burst onto the scene a few years ago Rebecca Hall was one that I couldn’t get enough of, but recently I have been less than enthused by her red carpet styles. I am hoping that returning to Toronto will bring back some of that magic that she had when she was out promoting The Town. At the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival Rebecca is expected to promote her latest film Christine. After a lot of blah looks I think that it is going to take a really major look for me to really care what Rebecca shows up wearing. This navy Schiaparelli Fall 2016 RTW one shoulder origami draped cocktail dress which features a crystal embellished bug broach detail. I think that this would put Rebecca back on the track of being high fashion. A classic but modern and slightly edgy style to help put her back in my good graces. A pair of gold sandals, a chic romantic wavy bob & a pink lip would really make this an A+ look. tatiana-maslany-tiff-2016-two-lovers-and-a-bear-premiere-wish-list (1)I had to save the most outrageous title of the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival for last. Two Lovers and a Bear has got to be one of the craziest titles that I have every heard of. I am hoping that the red carpet will be good. We have seen very little of Tatiana Maslany on the red carpet before and I am hoping we still get a change to know her a little more. I have learned that Tatiana has more of a tom boy style so I kept that in mind when picking a look for her to wear for the films TIFF premiere. I mixed tom boy with high glam with this Monique Lhuillier Resort 2017 ensemble which features a black and white strapless peplum bodice which features all over floral embroidery and tulle train and a pair of black high waisted straight leg pants. I think that Tatiana would look absolutely amazing on the TIFF red carpet in this look. It meshes her comfort zone while also stepping out of the box at the same time. I would take a cue from the lookbook styling and pair this look with a statement pair of sandals in any bold color. Finishing with a sleek ponytail, a pink lip (for all shoe colors except red where I would opt for nude and a light smokey eye,) and a black clutch would really make this a stand out look for Tatiana.




“Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” London Premiere: Gal Gadot in Prada

'Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice'- European Premiere - Red CarpetI was a little surprised to find out that the gorgeous vintage inspired gown that Wonder Woman Gal Gadot wore for the Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice red carpet premiere in London was custom Prada. It went official yesterday that Gal is now the face of the Gucci fragrance Gucci Bamboo so I was expecting her to wear a Gucci gown, and this gave me Gucci vibes. But alas I was able to confirm that this gown is a custom Prada gown. This gown was slinky ans sexy with gorgeous crystal embellished shoulder details gave Amy’s custom Antonio Berardi a run for her money. I am going to have a hard time picking one of these gowns over the other for my Best Dressed of the Month list!

Emmy Rossum to wear the Fall 2016 RTW Collections

emmy-rossum-bibhu-mohapatra (1)After closely following all of awards season and fashion month I have decided that I want to put up a couple of wish lists for some of the stars that I love to see on the red carpet but rarely get to post wish lists for. Emmy Rossum is a social red carpet butterfly and gives me major red carpet moments, her latest was Carolina Herrera at The Frick Collection’s Young Fellows Ball. One look I would love to see Emmy wear for one of the many gala’s that she attends would be this black, white, and gold Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2016 RTW portrait neckline gown. I love that while this is a very classic look it still evokes a modern sensibility while evoking notes of the 1940’s and the 70’s disco queen. This is not exactly the overtly feminine looks that Emmy usually rocks on the red carpet but I think that it would be something high impact for an event like the American Ballet Theater’s Spring Gala, or other big gala’s.emmy-rossum-carolina-herrera (1)A match that continues to be a match made in fashion heaven is Emmy’s relationship with Carolina Herrera. Last year it was her Fall 2015 RTW gown from Carolina at the The New York Botanical Garden’s annual Conservatory Ball, which ended up in the second place on my Best Dressed of the Year list last year. While this misty green organza dress which features a midi length hem and 3D floral embellishments isn’t a grand gala gown I still think that this would be perfect for something like the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic or something a little more cocktail but formal, maybe a perfect look for Emmy to wear for the Spring 2017 presentation in September. emmy-rossum-j-mendel (1)Another of the designers that Emmy has almost always wowed for me wearing is J. Mendel and there were a few looks from this collection that I actually really loved for her to wear on the red carpet. I picked this red pleated draped cocktail dress with a modified embellished halter neckline. This dress would mesh the sexier side and the elegant side of Emmy and I think that it would make for a very glorious red carpet moment. emmy-rossum-lanvin (1)I added a look from the Lanvin Fall 2016 RTW collection because Emmy was ever so glamorously perched front row at the collections presentation in Paris just last week. While most critics denounced the first collection at Lanvin since the exit of Alber Elbaz, I personally was a fan of the collection and can’t wait to see who gets their hands on it. I would love to see Emmy snatch up this velvet brocade ruffled cocktail dress. I think that this is such a chic lady like look that Emmy would just slay the red carpet on the red carpet wearing it. A more edgy glam look than she is normally seen wearing on the red carpet.emmy-rossum-oscar-de-la-renta (1)Finally I picked this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2016 RTW gold brocade pencil dress which features some sparkling embellishment on the bodice. I love this very chic look that is very high impact. Emmy is always giving high impact looks no matter what the occasion that she is dressing for, and I love her for that. This would be perfect for a movie premiere or a cocktail gala. I think that this lady like look, with a hint of mystery would be a perfect moment for Emmy to bring to a red carpet.

“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” LA Premiere Wish List

naomi-watts-allegiant-la-premiere-wish (1)The final installment of the Divergent Series films, The Divergent Series: Allegiant  is set to make its final rounds int the up coming weeks. The promo tour for the first film Divergent was a huge success but last year the promo tour for The Divergent Series: Insurgent was a little lack luster, despite the addition of some major red carpet heavy hitters. I am hoping that for the final round of premieres for the series that the stars pull out all the stops. Naomi Watts completely skipped out of promoting Insurgent last year, but Instagram shows that she has been doing some press days for Allegiant, so I am very hopeful that she will be present at some of the films big premieres. For the LA premiere I would love to see Naomi wearing this Altuzarra Fall 2016 RTW fully sequined handkerchief gown. I think that this gown would bring an iota of relaxed glamour to Naomi for these premieres. I don’t think I have ever seen her out promoting a blockbuster film and I think that this would be the perfect choice for her for this major premiere. Keep the look simple with just some diamond studs, a wavy bob, fresh faced makeup, a black clutch, and a pair of black satin sandals to ensure that Naomi slays the red carpet. shailene-woodley-allegiant-la-premiere-wish (1)Shailene Woodley really came into her own with the promo tour for Divergent two years ago, thanks much to her stylist Ilaria Urbinati. For the Insurgent tour I honestly don’t remember any of Shailene’s red carpet looks, so I am hoping she sends the series off with a bang. For the LA premiere I would love to see Shailene wearing this Monique Lhuillier Fall 2016 RTW gunmetal grey gown which features a fitted column silhouette, a high neck, and allover lacquer floral embellishment. I think that this gown meshes toughness and glamour together in such a chic feminine way that I think Shailene would absolutely love. LA is usually a big premiere and I think that this gown is worthy of that. I would keep the styling simple on this look too just adding a pair of silver sandals, to ensure that Shailene kills the red carpet to kick off this promo tour.Last but not least is my wish for Zoe Kravitz. I think we have only seen Zoe in gowns at big events like the Oscars, Cannes Film Festival, and the Met Ball, so I am expecting the actress to go short with her look for the LA premiere of The Divergent Series: Allegiant. I think that this chic Alexander McQueen Fall 2016 RTW chiffon cutout cocktail dress which features a print of all different McQueen signatures. I think that this flirty, yet edgy, dress is something that Zoe would slay wearing on a red carpet. Her current braids styled into a high bun, a pink lip, and black sandals would finish this look perfectly for Zoe.
