2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 11

Starting tomorrow I am going to take a two day break in my Golden Globe Awards wishes to get into another event quickly, but before that I have a couple more wishes for nominees (and one confirmed presenter) for this years Globes. I am still crossing my fingers that we are going to see some major fashion moments this year despite the fact that all of the nominees will be joining the show remotely. Anya Taylor Joy just might nab the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television award for her performance in The Queen’s Gambit. She is also nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy thanks to her role in Emma. This is a major accomplishment for the actress who has never been nominated for a Golden Globe before. I cannot wait to see what Anya will wear for this years Golden Globes because her stylist Law Roach definitely isn’t afraid to have his clients serve up DRAMA even if they are just joining a show remotely. It was really a no brainer for me to pick this major late 60’s meets bohemian glamour moment from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2021 Couture collection to life for the Globes. I love the sheer blouse with blouson sleeves and big green satin bows and the ball skirt with a an intricate leaf embroidered pattern and a sweeping train of this look. It isn’t an east look to pull off at all, but I think that Anya has the avant garde sensibility to really make a gown like this come to life especially if she styled it with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, green satin Roger Vivier ‘I Love Vivier’ pointed toe pumps, and vintage Bulgari emerald and white diamond flower cluster earrings. Jane Levy is also a first time Golden Globe nominee this year. Her performance in Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist has earned this beautiful redhead a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy so I want to see her bring an incredibly glamorous look to the screen. I was looking around at some of the labels available at PR showrooms in LA that I thought could be a good fit for Jane and found this deep blood red Gurav Gupta column gown which features an asymmetrical scarf cap sleeve neckline and heavy beading and fell in love. I think there is nothing that can be sexier and more glamorous than a redhead in a deep red gown. It screams film nior siren and I can definitely imagine this look becoming a major glamour moment. To put the perfect finishing touches to this look I would include a loose curly romantic updo, thick smokey defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, burgundy sequin and velvet vintage Gucci by Tom Ford peep toe ankle strap sandals, and Sutra ‘Mosaic’ collection ruby drop earrings. To say I was SHOCKED that Kate Hudson got nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for her performance in the controversial film Music. Now I haven’t seen the movie yet and not sure I plan to, but I do always love seeing Kate and I want to see her bring sleek and sexy glamour to the Golden Globes wearing this black liquid sequin Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2020 RTW strapless column gown which features a cutout exposed back and a center split. I have loved this gown since it was first presented and I definitely think that Kate has the glamorous presence to really make this look work even if she she is just zooming into this years Golden Globe Awards. I would love to see Kate take this gown and style it with old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Mafaldina Spikes 100’ silver spike studded asymmetric ankle strap sandals, and a statement white diamond Cartier art deco inspired high jewelry necklace. Even more shocking than Kate’s nomination for Music was the fact that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association nominated the film itself for Best Motion Picture – Musical/Comedy. So yea I am sure that had there been a red carpet this year that we would have seen the movies director Sia on the red carpet and we just might see her Zoom into this years ceremony. When I was thinking I about what I would have wanted to see Sia wearing on this red carpet I knew that it had to be dramatic and over the top. Enter this pink and white floral print Juana Martin Spring 2021 Couture long sleeve mermaid gown which features ruffle details on the cuff and hem. I discovered this label when I was looking at collections presented during Paris Haute Couture Virtual Fashion Week. It definitely falls in line with Sia’s crazy insane sense of style so with a sleek avant garde hairstyle, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of white Dr. Martens lace up combat boots, dazzling white diamond Yeprem ‘Chevalier’ cluster wreath earrings, and a dramatic huge candy pink wavy bow fascinator from the Etsy store Hats by Cressida and this look would be avant garde glam defined. Renee Zellweager will be on hand this year as one of the presenters at the Golden Globe Awards after taking home the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama trophy last year. The HFPA has asked that all of the presenters do attend in person either at the Beverly Hilton in LA, where co-host Amy Poehler will be holding down the fort, or from the Rainbow Room in New York City, where it will be Tina Fey holding things down as the co-host. So I am really praying that when they do that they will bring LOOKS. When it comes to fashion Renee isn’t know for making waves, but she does make really glamorous choices. I’ve basically been mentally reserving this pale pearl pink Brandon Maxwell Spring 2021 RTW strapless column gown with a bright orange bow detailed waist for Renee ever since we first saw it presented back in December. I know this look is perfect for her and the pairing of the two Texans would be a match made in heaven. Styled with a sleek center parted updo, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of shimmering blush pink Jimmy Choo ‘Emsy 85’ strappy peep toe sandals, and a Chopard Red Carpet Collection white diamond flower collar necklace this look would scream glamour from head to toe.

The 2021 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday February 28, 2021. You can see all of my wishes for this years event here.

“Godzilla vs. King Kong” Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

As much as I get annoyed every time a movie studio announces a blockbuster has been pushed back I am disappointed that Godzilla vs King Kong won’t be getting a red carpet premiere. While personally I don’t really care for the movie itself the cast is PHENOMENAL. I just look at the names in this cast and think about all the possible fashion moments as they criss-crossed the universe promoting the film. Hopefully the stars of this movie will still do some sort of lockdown premiere and will still serve looks. So the wishes below are things I would definitely love to see the stars of the film wear for lockdown premieres or well they are just wishes that will remain just that wishes. KiKicking off these wishes is the gorgeous Danai Gurira. I’ve been a huge fan of Danai’s style for a really long time and I am always excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet. When I was thinking about what I wanted to see Danai wear for this red carpet I was picturing a really dramatic moment. What’s the centerpiece of that look? This gold tiered Cong Tri Spring 2021 RTW halter gown is a major look and I can just imagine the inner magpie within Danai would definitely be drawn to this gown. It isn’t a standard look and that’s what I love so much about it. Now on many I would go very simple and sleek with the styling allowing the gown to be the focal moment of the look, but for Danai I really want to see her go for the gold. Styling this look with an avant garde twist updo, thick black winged eyes with gold shadow, deep red glossy lips, a pair of gold Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ pointed toe pumps, and a selection of Ana Khouri jewels including a ‘Camille’ 18k yellow gold curved drop ear cuff detailed with a single pink sapphire in one ear, a ‘Mirian’ 18k yellow gold set white diamond ear cuff in the other, and a ‘Maia’ 18k yellow gold and white diamond cocktail ring would definitely make this a MAJOR fashion moment.Two years ago I was watching Millie Bobby Brown shut down red carpets as she made the international rounds promoting Godzilla: King of the Monsters. She gave us major moments in Oscar de la Renta, Givenchy Couture, Christian Dior Couture, and Valentino. It was where I felt Millie really started to grow up in front of our eyes. At 16 I want to see Millie wearing fun youthful looks that can still speak to the megawatt fashion girl that she has become. I immediately thought of this sunset orange Giambattista Valli Spring 2021 Couture strapless gown which features intricate 3D flower detailed down a ruched bodice and a dramatic high low ball skirt. This gown scream teenage fashion queen and I think that it would be a major moment for Millie for sure. We haven’t really seen Millie wear strapless on the red carpet. It can make it seem like she is trying to hard to be older than she is, but I think that the overall vibe of this gown definitely screams youth so I’m not concerned about that especially if she were to style this look with a loose curly romantic updo, soft defined eyes, blush pink lips, a pair of champagne gold Rene Caovilla crystal embellished satin sandals, and Tiffany & Co. drop earrings in 18k gold with imperial topaz and diamonds from the 2019 Blue Book Collection.Rebecca Hall has an amazing sense of style so I was definitely excited to see her name on the cast list for Godzilla vs. King Kong. I immediately knew what I wanted to pick for Rebecca. I really would have loved to see her give us sleek and sexy glamour wearing this black liquid sequin Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2021 RTW column gown with a cutout back and a center split. It is definitely a signature Vauthier gown, but isn’t the crystal embellished jersey draped gowns we are used to seeing from Vauthier RTW and that is a refreshing change. I feel like Rebecca would definitely take this gown and make it a major fashion moment with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black velvet Judith Leiber Couture ‘Soho’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of black crystal embellished PVC Christian Louboutin ‘Spikaqueen 100’ pointed toe ankle strap sandals, and a STATEMENT white diamond and emerald Bulgari ‘Barocko’ collection collar necklace. Like Millie we Zhang Ziyi giving lots of looks while promoting Godzilla: King of the Monsters wearing looks from Alex Perry, Chanel, and Ulyana Sergeenko Couture. She knows glamour and drama and I know that she would have served a major fashion moment had there been a red carpet premiere for Godzilla vs. King Kong. As I was starting to think about what I wanted to see Zhang wear on this red carpet I kept going back to the idea of her giving us a big poufy Marchesa moment. Well the most recent collections didn’t fulfill my wishes so I decided to start diving into the brands archives and when I saw this black strapless tea length gown which features a sweetheart neckline, ruched corseted bodice, and flower embellishment from the Marchesa Fall 2018 RTW collection I knew I had found the perfect dress. This gown comes from the collection that was released right after the trajectory of Marchesa changed forever due to the Weinstein scandal and many gorgeous gowns were sent to the archive. I feel that Zhang would be the perfect person to pull this gown out of that archive and finally give it the red carpet moment it deserves. A sleek bun updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a pair of black satin Sophia Webster ‘Natalia’ crystal heel ankle strap platform sandals, and a selection of Chopard jewels including paisley inspired white diamond teardrop earrings and a ‘Precious Lace’ white and pink diamond cocktail ring would most definitely make sure that this look is glamour defined from head to toe.

Godzilla vs. King Kong will hit theaters and HBO Max on Wednesday March 31, 2021.

2020 American Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

Now that the People’s Choice Awards are behind us it’s time to head full into the next major award show the 2020 American Music Awards. I am very excited about this scaled back yet in person award show. I have been super impressed with the progression of in person music award events this year and I cannot wait to see what the AMA’s have in store for us. Soon after they announced the nominees it was announced that Taraji P. Henson would be the hostess of this years event. I was already excited about what we could see from this event, but I got even more excited with this announcement. I immediately started to pick looks. I after going through collection after collection I had over 100 options for Taraji. I had such a hard time narrowing down the options that I sent them all to a couple of friends whose opinions I trust. The looks below are seven absolutely major ensembles I know that Taraji would shut down during her time as the hostess of the American Music Awards. I’ve heard that there will be a red carpet ahead of this event so I wanted to go for dramatic glamour for Taraji so I was sold pretty quickly on the idea of her wearing this black chiffon Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 Couture one shoulder draped gown which features an asymmetrical sweetheart neckline, a silk cummerbund defined waist, crystal broach detail on one hip, an asymmetrical skirt trimmed in ostrich feathers and a dramatic cape train also trimmed in feathers. It is sexy and glamorous and I feel like Taraji would definitely give it the sex kitten appeal I know she can deliver. She also recently debuted crayola red hair which I am not a fan of. I wasn’t exactly taking it into account when I made my options, but I think they all work. The hair would work with this look styled into a sleek fingerwave updo. Finishing the moment with smokey eyes, deep glossy red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Goya Ruban Alta 120’ crepe satin and chiffon peep toe platform ribbon strap pumps, and statement white diamond and emerald Gismondi 1754 ‘Rugiada’ waterfall chandelier earrings it would make for a glamorous moment for Taraji to kick off the night. To kick off the telecast I went for even more couture for Taraji. Ralph & Russo presented their Fall 2020 Couture collection three ways. We saw a couple looks styled into actual lookbook photos, a digital model, and sketches. While I’ve only seen this scarlet red silk georgette gown which features a plunging neckline and oversized bow hip bustle, embellished with pearlescent sequins via sketch it was definitely a favorite from this collection. While on paper it says it is a gown, the way the fold of the skirt is in the sketch I would really love to see this made as a jumpsuit for Taraji to kick off the show. I like to balance gowns, cocktail looks, and trousers for a well rounded set of looks so I feel like this jumpsuit would be a great moment. I would finish the look with big bouncy curls, defined eyes, dark red glossy lips, and a pair of red glitter Casadei ‘City Light Blade’ pointed toe pumps.

Mugler has been all over this fall. They dressed 3 stars (Ariana Grande, Madison Beer, & Miley Cyrus) for the VMAs and it doesn’t seem like they are going to be slowing down any time soon. I’ve gone ahead an picked a super sexy glam moment for Taraji that could be a fun kitschy moment during the show since Dua Lipa just wore this gown in her Levitating music video. I love this black sheer corseted draped below the knee length gown which features thin straps, all over black pearl embellishment, a thigh high ruched slit, and matching gloves. The look is a balance of uber sex appeal and femme fatale. I think that is right up Taraji’s ally. I’d style this look with a sleek side parted bun, defined eyes, deep burgundy lips, simple black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ strappy sandals, and dazzling black diamond Anabela Chan ‘Cascade’ waterfall chandelier earrings to create a major sexy glam moment.

I first talked about Annakiki on Saturday in my People’s Choice wishes for Chloe x Halle and it’s already back for my wishes for Taraji to rock while hosting the People’s Choice Awards. I love this blue space print ruched zip-up mini dress which features ginormous puffy sleeves from the Annakiki Spring 2021 RTW collection and feel like it would be a really cool moment for Taraji to bring to life on the AMA’s stage. I feel like it is a different statement than most of the other looks I’ve picked for Taraji, but it fit’s in perfectly at the same time. To really make this look chic AF I would style it with a sleek high ponytail, thick winged eyes, bold red lips, a pair of major light wash denim Balmain ‘Campbell’ lace up peep toe thigh high boots, and a selection of statement Gismondi 1754 ‘Genesi’ collection jewels including white diamond paisley scroll drop earrings and a matching cuff bracelet. So far each look has been about detail, pattern, and embellishment. While I love all of those things sometimes a palate cleanser is needed. So I turned to this black Monot Spring 2021 RTW cutout crepe backless maxi gown which features a slim fit, long sleeves, cutout front, and side sit. It gives me a major 90’s Gucci by Tom Ford vibes and I feel like Taraji would definitely be able to sell this overtly sexy yet simplistic look to me with ease. Now the gown itself is super simple, but the styling I want to see with it is not. I feel like this gown is a perfect canvas for major styling so to continue to make it a major moment I would style this gown with old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, nude glossy lips, a pair of chunky black croc embossed Christian Louboutin ‘Foolish’ platform sandals, and a selection of Gucci Haute Jewelry including a statement multi precious stone and white diamond ‘Hortus Deliciarum’ collar necklace and a complimentary ‘Hortus Deliciarum’ cuff bracelet.

I definitely couldn’t do this list without a Balmain moment for Taraji. I adored this black, raspberry pink, emerald green, ruby red, silver, and gold 80’s inspired sequin patterned mini dress from the Balmain Resort 2021 collection which features a crew neck, padded shoulders, long dolman sleeves, and crystal embellishments the moment I saw this lookbook. I feel like it is that fun kinda 80’s glam moment we are used to seeing at music awards and I definitely can see it being a fun moment on Taraji. The dress itself is so dazzling so I would style it with a loose romantic updo, smokey eyes, deep red lips, and a pair of hot pink Fenty ‘Power Point’ pointed toe flat curved heel pumps to make it another major moment.

My finale look was one that I had the most indecision about. I was stuck between two very equally glamorous yet very different looks. I was heavily leaning towards a silver crystal fringe Schiaparelli Couture tea length gown (don’t worry it’s going to have an AMA’s wish moment in the coming days for someone else), but then I saw this black Georges Hobeika Spring 2021 RTW strapless sequined jumpsuit which features a sweetheart neckline, ankle length trousers, and a dramatic chiffon cape. It was a really cool glam moment and I definitely think it would vibe with Taraji’s sense of style. To finish out the night I would style this jumpsuit with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of major black Amina Muaddi silver crystal embellished v-strap PVC detailed ankle strap sandals, and a statement white diamond Butani collar necklace. Each look would make sure that Taraji has one of the best hosting styles of the year.

The 2020 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 22, 2020.

2020 E! People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

The 2020 People’s Choice Awards are TOMORROW! I am so excited to see what this event will be. I feel like there are a lot of surprises in store. There aren’t a lot of performers or presenters announced yet. So I don’t know how the show will work. This is a two hour “red carpet” hosted by Giuliana Rancic before so I would imagine there will be a good celebrity attendance. Today my wishes are full of some of the confirmed presenters and performers, as well as Dua Lipa who is nominated for 4 People’s Choice Awards this year. I had only heard of Addison Rae as a Tik Tok personality before she presented at the Billboard Music Awards last month wearing a full Valentino Fall 2020 RTW ensemble. I don’t know anything about her style, but I feel like she will bring some sort of chic look. I was looking at the Fall 2020 RTW collections and when I saw this pale butter yellow Lanvin Fall 2020 RTW skater style mini dress which features a scoop neckline, crystal embellishments on the straps, and an a-line skirt I thought it was the perfect look for Addison. It is chic and flirty moment and I feel it could help continue to push her into the fashion girl territory. Now I feel she rocked the Valentino gloves at the Billboard Awards as a nod to COVID safety precautions so she could definitely rock the ivory ones that the Lanvin dress was styled with on the runway. I personally wouldn’t it could become too kitschy and I don’t think Addison is established enough to fall into a moment in time kitsch. A sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, punchy pink lips, champagne platinum glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Jenique’ criss-cross strap peep toe platform sandals, and a pair of rose quartz and white diamond Brumani ‘Looping Shine’ collection stud earrings would all make this look the epitome of feminine chic. I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen Bebe Rexha, but she recently presented at the MTV EMA’s where she debuted some bold crayola red hair and she is going to present at the People’s Choice Awards tomorrow night. I have to say I hate the hair on her. The only person, in my opinion, to make this hair color work was Rihanna back in the early days of LOUD. I want to minimize the color so I went for a look for Bebe that I think fits her aesthetic (even though she doesn’t really have one) picking this black draped stretch satin Alexandre Vauthier dress which features a plunging neckline, open back, scarf draping on the hips, and an asymmetrical hem line. I feel the dress is definitely something that Bebe would be drawn to and I can see her making it a super sensual moment as well. I would pull the look together styling her hair into a chic finger wave updo with a beauty look that includes smokey eyes and lips to match her red hair and accessorizing with a pair of black Alexander McQueen crystal embellished ankle strap sandals and Amwaj ‘Vision in Blue’ white diamond and sapphire modern cross tassel drop earrings. Chloe x Halle are amongst the only performers (along with Justin Beiber) who are currently announced for the People’s Choice Awards. All of their performances at events since the pandemic hit have been studio recorded and played during the live show. I am hoping that we see the R&B superstar sisters take to the stage in person at the PCA’s tomorrow night. I have long been a fan of their style. They know how to rock some major FASHION. I would love to see them rock a new brand I’ve discovered thanks to Vogue Runway called Annakiki whose Spring 2021 RTW was all about taking intergalactic meets streetwear drama. I would love to see Halle wear the black sequined mini dress with pink 3D floral embroidered shoulder and for Chloe to wear the avant garde cropped interpretation of a white button down with high waisted black trousers. The looks are cool and chic which is exactly what the Bailey sisters are all about. I would style Halle’s dress with braids pulled back, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, black asymmetrical grosgrain bow detail Jimmy Choo ‘Aveline 100’ ankle strap sandals, and white diamond Harry Kotlar teardrop cluster drop earrings and Chloe’s trouser looks with a curly top bun, defined eyes, deep antique rose pink lips, bold hot pink Balenciaga ‘Knife’ pointed toe pumps, and white diamond Harry Kotlar ‘Scallop Silhouette’ dangle fringe earrings to really make these superb complimentary red carpet moments. Dua Lipa is the only person on this list who isn’t confirmed to attend the 2020 People’s Choice Awards tomorrow. I have really enjoyed seeing Dua continue to grow in her style choices. I am really hoping that if she steps out tomorrow night I would love to see Dua give us edgy glam wearing this Balenciaga Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features a black sleeveless bodysuit with built in stiletto boots overlaid with a silver chain link mesh floor length tunic. This look is industrial glam defined and I definitely feel like it would be something Dua would be able to bring to life on the red carpet. She has lost the two toned blonde and black 90’s grunge hair coloring that she was sporting at the end of last year into this year and is back to straight black locks. Thank god. I would love to see Dua style this look with a sleek ponytail, statement black and white smokey eyes, bold matte red lips, and a pair of asymmetrical white diamond Messika High Jewelery ‘Equalizer’ zig-zag earrings. Finishing out today’s wish is the gorgeous Jameela Jamil who is nominated and presenting at tomorrow nights awards show. I go back and forth with Jameela and her style. I know she has potential but I don’t like the fit of many of her looks. So I went to one of the brands known for their fit with this emerald green velvet Vivienne Westwood Fall 2020 RTW mini dress which features strong shoulders, sweetheart neckline, corseted waist, long sleeves, and a draped mini length skirt. First I was drawn to the color of this dress for Jameela. It is a little shorter and sexier than we are used to seeing her wear, but I think that if Westwood would lengthen the look to hit mid thigh that this look would be a game changer when it comes to Jameela’s style. I would love to see her banged hair styled in a sleek high ponytail adding defined eyes, bold deep red lips, gold Jimmy Choo ‘Talika’ crystal embellished cross strap pointed toe pumps, and a pair of Amrapali ‘Kimya Fan’ graduated 18k yellow gold and white diamond chandelier earrings. It would definitely be among one of Jameela’s best red carpet looks ever.

The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will take place tomorrow Sunday November 15, 2020.

2020 Billboard Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List

Tomorrow night are the 2020 pandemic version of the Billboard Music Awards. The awards are finally happening, in a virtual event, after being postponed earlier this year. I don’t know what to expect, but there are some major names in the list of nominees and performers so I hope to see a lot of these stars over the course of the telecast tomorrow night. Check out some of the absolutely major moments I want to see these stars rock tomorrow night for the virtual “red carpet” and let me know which are your favorites and which ones you most want to see brought to life.

2020 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List

Well, I was SWAMPED with my actual job lately and I’ve been neglecting If I Was A Stylist as a result. That means that even though I had 14 posts planned for the 2020 Emmy Awards, which take place tonight, all I was able to do is this all in gallery for the nominees, presenters, and cast members of nominated projects. I am really interested to see how the Emmy’s will work from home with production kits sent to over 130 different locations. How will the fashion fare? We saw the fashion factor happen for the VMA’s and then Venice Film Festival actually happened in person and I was THRILLED. So in my wishes for this years event I’ve pulled looks hot off the runway this past week during NYFW, things shown seasons ago, as well as several looks I would love to see stars pull out of their archives and give another go. So check out my 54 wishes below and let me know which ones you would most like to see come true.

2020 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

We are getting closer and closer to this years VMA’s. I feel like we still do not know what the show is going to look like and how it will be staged. I am really interested in seeing what the producers are putting together. I am disappointed that we won’t actually get a red carpet, but I am interested in seeing what everyone wears for their performances and to accept their awards. MTV did announce plans for the show to “[span] all five boroughs” to “pay homage to the strength, spirit and incredible resilience of NYC and its beloved residents.” I would be shocked if Alicia Keys, who does come across as an ultimate New Yorker, won’t perform. She is nominated for Best R&B thanks to her song “Underdog” which focuses on rising in situations that may be difficult. I went back to the same idea I had for Keke Palmer and picked a head to toe look for Alicia from black designers starting with an eggplant iridescent velvet Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW double breasted suit which features strong shoulders, slouchy sleeves, and wide leg trousers. I can definitely imagine Alicia sitting at a piano placed in the middle of a street in New York City as the sun sets performing “Underdog” in this suit. It would be made even better with a sleek updo with perfectly beat babyhairs, smokey eyes. glossy nude pink lips, a pair of black Brother Vellies ‘Bowery Palms’ feather detailed sling back strappy sandals, and white diamond Vanleles ‘Bridal Cuff’ marquis and pear shaped wreath earrings.When I head that Chloe x Halle were only given a place to perform in the VMA’s pre-show I was annoyed. First I don’t know how that will work. The pre-show usually takes place on the red carpet as guests arrive. Well there is no red carpet. So why not just call it the show. Second I feel like these sisters have been doing it for a while now and deserve the plunge to the main show. Either way I am excited to see what they and stylist Zerina Akers are going to cook up for the VMA’s. I decided to pick two complimentary looks from the David Koma Fall 2020 RTW collection for these ladies starting with a black slim fit wool single button suit with a white and green crystal embellished harness for Chloe Bailey and a black sequined jersey long sleeve mini dress which features a cutout neckline for Halle Bailey. The two looks are super sexy and glamorous and I feel like these sisters would own their respective moments at the VMA’s. To style the looks I would love to see Chloe with a sleek ponytail of braids, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ crystal embellished mesh paneled pointed toe pumps and Halle with an intricate asymmetrical braid updo, thick defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Open Liloo’ crisscross strap sandals, and a selection of Gismondi 1754 jewels including ‘Prato Fiorito’ white diamond and emerald earcuffs and a statement white diamond and emerald ‘Cascata’ waterfall cocktail ring. The styling would definitely turn these looks into major moments. It was the custom red sequin ‘siren’ emblazoned Moschino gown at the 2019 MTV VMAs that told me that Lizzo was going to be a fashionable force to be reckoned with. I’ve been obsessed with her looks from Atelier Versace, Moschino, Mary Katrantzou, and more! She is nominated for two VMAs this year and I would have loved to see what she would wear for the red carpet this year. I was thinking about looks and I fell in love with this jade green Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 Couture gown which gives distinct 60’s palm springs hostess caftan vibes with its ostrich feather trim. It is super glam but definitely not a look that anyone could pull off. I feel like this is such a bold statement and I think that Lizzo has the presence to make it work. I would make this look even more major with a teased bouffant updo, smokey glitter eyes, deep red Pat McGrath glitter lips, a pair of gold trimmed Votette ‘Cindy’ pointed toe PVC pumps, and statement Mateo NY 14k gold and white pearl ‘Blizzard’ mobile drop earrings. Machine Gun Kelly will also be performing at the 2020 VMAs “pre-show” what ever that means. The rapper is definitely known to serve a cool menswear moment and I am praying we see that from him at the 2020 VMA’s. We’ve seen him pull looks from Calvin Klein by Raf Simons, Comme de Garcons, and Saint Laurent but instead of going to one of those top tier labels instead I wanted to see MGK rock a look from Netflix’s Next In Fashion Season 1 runner up Daniel W. Fletcher. I LOVE this look which features a black tuxedo coat, a white unbuttoned button down, a pair of boot cut white piped slashed trousers, and a wide white asymmetrical cummerbund from his Fall 2020 Menswear collection titled “Start Me Up.” It is a cool new take on the classic tuxedo and I feel like that is what MGK is into. Only thing I would add a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Trapman Flat’ formal combat style leather boots and two Jacob & Co necklaces including a white gold set white diamond studded ‘Safety Pin’ necklace and a white diamond asscher cut cross pendant necklace to really make this look super cool. Finishing out this list is the gorgeous Taylor Swift who is nominated for 5 VMA’s. We haven’t heard about Taylor performing or making any appearances at this years event. I won’t lie to you I’m not loving her new album, but I would love to see her give a super soft glam moment inspired by the aesthetic the album gives wearing this grey and white marbled pattern chiffon Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture one shoulder gown which features a defined waist, ruffle detail on the shoulder, an a-line skirt, and a thigh high split. It is the soft moody glam effortless elegance that is woven in the music from Folklore and I feel like it would be a gorgeous gown on Taylor. It would also be a gorgeous gown if she does perform a song like “Cardigan.” A romantic curly updo, soft defined smokey eyes, light pink lips, a pair of iridescent silver Christian Louboutin ‘Spikaqueen’ crystal embellished PVC pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of elegant Kwiat jewels including a pair of white diamond ‘Legacy Petal’ floral teardrop earrings and a white diamond ‘Entwine’ 4-row cuff bangle bracelet would add the perfect finishing touches to this look.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will take place on Sunday August 30, 2020. You can see all my VMA’s wishes here.

2020 Venice Film Festival: Tilda Swinton Tribute Gala Red Carpet Wish List

Before I finish out my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival with the closing ceremony wishes tomorrow I want to talk about what could be at the gala where the festival will honor Tilda Swinton with an honorary Golden Lion Award. In a statement about being given this honor Swinton said: “This great festival has been dear to my heart for three decades: to be honoured by her in this way is extremely humbling. To come to Venice, this year of all years, to celebrate immortal cinema and her defiant survival in the face of all the challenges that evolution might throw at her – as at us all – will be my sincere joy.” I always love seeing Tilda Swinton on the red carpet so I am hoping that she will have two different red carpets for her film premiere and the award presentation. For the photocall ahead of the award I would love to see Tilda wearing this winter white Fendi Fall 2020 RTW strong structured short sleeve midi dress which features a pleated a-line skirt. It is a super strong look and fully within Tilda’s usual wheelhouse. I can picture it being a major look with her flame orange red hair, defined eyes, bold orange lips, and a pair of white Fendi ‘FFreedom’ square toe mens loafer inspired sculptural slingback pumps. Now for the premiere I went with something that is much more statement making. This bold pink and red Valentino Spring 2020 Couture gown which features a dramatically ruffled bodice, cummerbund waist, column skirt, and a dramatic train. It is definitely a risk. It isn’t exactly what we are used to seeing from Tilda, much more super girly than androgynous, but I can imagine Tilda making it a major moment. I almost want to see it made custom for her in all Valentino red instead of pink. It would be much more in line with her signature sense of style. The custom red gown styled with a sleek side parted hairstyle, defined eyes, bold red lips, and a pair of red satin Manolo Blahnik ‘LALA’ crystal detailed pointed toe strappy pumps would be the dramatically glamorous moment I know that Tilda loves to bring to life on the red carpet. Today’s wish for Cate Blanchett to wear in Venice is easily my favorite. The moment I saw this black stretchy black crepe Stephane Rolland Fall 2020 Couture sheath gown and features gigantic black gazar ruffled petals with a “caviar and diamonds” embroidery, a cutout back, and a completely covered front I knew I wanted it to be a major moment for Cate in Venice. She’s never given us a Stephane Rolland Couture moment on the red carpet, but I can just imagine her on the Lido red carpet giving us all the glamorous drama wearing this gown. Because the gown is such a statement I would love to see Cate style it with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, black Aquazzura pointed toe silver crystal embellished half d’Orsay pumps, and a selection of Chopard jewels including a pair of Chopard Loves Rihanna pear shaped white diamond earcuffs and a Red Carpet Collection white diamond and emerald cocktail ring. Ludivine Sagnier is known for being a little unpredictable on if she will wear a gown on the red carpet. So I decided to go short for this wish picking this super sexy black Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 ruched fitted cocktail dress which features thin straps, bow detail on the bodice, and a pleated flared hem. I feel like this is definitely something I feel like Ludivine would be drawn to and a super chic moment for her to wear on the Venice Film Festival red carpet. I would finish this look with old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black Roger Vivier ‘Marlene’ crystal fringe embellished box clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Jonatina’ leather and PVC ankle strap sandals, and Bulgari ‘Barocko’ white diamond and emerald bow detailed drop earrings to really make sure that Ludivine oozes sensual glamour from head to toe. Picking looks for Diane Kruger to represent Armani on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival is definitely a pipe dream. Diane has been quarantined in the United States with her partner Norman Reedus and their young baby. So she won’t be allowed into Italy due to COVID-19 travel restrictions. If she were I would LOVE to see her represent Armani in Venice. I have always loved Diane and her sense of style and the two looks from the Armani Prive archives I would love to see her bring to life on the red carpet are major moments. Let’s start with the white beaded silk one shoulder gown from the Armani Prive Spring 2007 Couture collection which features a beaded arm cuff, cutout stomach, and wrap style column skirt. I definitely love this sexy take on classic glamour. I feel like everything about this look screams Diane’s take on glamour especially if styled with a sleek retro updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a white crystal embellished Alexander McQueen spider crystal clasp box clutch, a pair of white crystal embellished satin Gianvito Rossi ‘Glam’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 white diamond and emerald floral meets art deco inspired drop earrings. The second look I’ve picked for her is this lavender and black Armani Prive Spring 2016 Couture gown which features a sheer ruffle covered bodice, thin straps, and a sequin detailed tiered skirt. I have always been a huge fan of this gown and would love to see someone bring it to life on the red carpet. I would love to see Diane be that person. I can imagine her really infusing her glam into this look and giving it the major red carpet moment it deserves. A half up half down sleek retro hairstyle, smokey eyes, light pink glossy lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ satin ball clasp crystal trimmed box clutch, simple black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of dazzling white diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 floral heart drop earrings would definitely make sure this look is glamour defined for Diane.

The 2020 Venice Film Festival will open on Wednesday September 2, 2020 and runs through Saturday September 12, 2020. You can see all my Venice Film Festival wishes here.

Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 Couture Red Carpet Wish List

Instead of the full review I’ve already posted for Christian Dior, Georges Hobeika, and Giambattista Valli I am going to give you all the abbreviated thoughts and a wish list for some of my other favorite collections from the Fall 2020 Couture collections. I was so happy to see new collection presented even if they weren’t runway shows or if there isn’t any promise of seeing these collections on the red carpet. Alexandre Vauthier is always one of my favorite shows during couture. He knows how to balance extravagance with wearability and that was definitely still the case with his lockdown couture collection. As lockdown lifted, Alexandre Vauthier moved his entire operation into an airy, modernized Haussmannian duplex in a quiet little street next to the Palais Galliera, the fashion museum of the city of Paris. In a showroom meeting with Vogue Runway’s Tina Issac-Goize he told her that business was almost “back to normal.” This is a sign of hope for me that fashion will be back on top of its game by the September show season. In this collection you saw Vauthier’s history having worked at Thierry Mugler under the name sake designer in his prime on full display. The inspiration for the looks ranged from the heyday of old Hollywood Glamour to the decadence of the 1980’s. I could see some of the iconic 80’s designers like Yves St Laurent, Zandra Rhodes, Roberto Capucci, and of course Thierry Mugler on the mood board for this collection along with icons like Joan Crawford, Olivia de Havilland, Elizabeth Taylor, and Zsa Zsa Gabor. Vauthier dresses some of the hottest women in the world and one of the things I love most about the designer is that even though sex appeal is a main ingredient in his collections the age ranges of stars who I can picture wearing the collection is wide ranging. So check out just a couple of my initial wishes for whom I would love to see bring this collection to life on the red carpet as we start coming out of lockdown and bringing back the glamour.

 

“The Politician” Season 2 Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

I watched Season 1 of The Politician almost as soon as it came out. I was hooked. It was fantastic. It was all of the camp of your typically Ryan Murphy production with a great political twist. It captivated me. So when it was over I was already craving a second season. So I am happy that in the midst of TV and Movie drought, since I’ve binged pretty much everything new out there, that we are getting a second season so soon after the first was released. The new season will start streaming tomorrow which means that a red carpet would most likely have already happened to celebrate the new season. I am hoping that as California starts to re-open that soon we will have some red carpet premieres happening. But until then we we will continue to dream about the red carpets that could have been. Ben Platt has always been one to push the envelope on fashion, but unfortunately the looks just don’t usually pan out that well. I want him to have a major fashion moment because I know he could. So when I was looking at looks for him I fell in love with the idea of him wearing this burgundy Azzaro Spring 2020 Couture two button double breasted suit which features black abstract fringe detail embroidery across the blazer and on one of the pant legs. The cut of the suit is definitely more along the lines of a classic menswear fashion moment, but the embroidery is what makes this an envelope pushing fashion moment. The look is definitely something I would see Ben wearing, but the styling from the runway isn’t right for him. Instead a crisp black button up, a skinny black silk tie, and a pair of black leather Christian Louboutin ‘Roadie’ chelsea boots would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. I LOVED Gwyneth Paltrow’s character in The Politician and I cannot wait to see what is in store for her in season 2. When it comes to her fashion I have been VERY disappointed with pretty much everything Gwynie has delivered on the red carpet. So in my wish for what could have been at a premiere is this aqua blue and celadon A.W.A.K.E Mode pleated asymmetric sleeveless crepe dress. I have been obsessed with the idea of seeing Gwyneth wearing this A.W.A.K.E Mode dress since it was first presented. I feel like it speaks to her more simplistic side while still being quite the avant garde creation. It definitely wouldn’t be an easy look to pull off, but I do think that Gwyneth could do it. Styled with a sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a turquoise mother of pearl Rafe ‘Stella’ minaudiere clutch bag with a tassel, silver Alaia ‘Bombe’ stud snakeskin ankle wrap sandals, and a selection of major Buccellati High Jewelry including a pair of ‘Macri’ Pendant earrings in white and yellow gold with white gold bezels set with diamonds and a complimentary “Oasi” cuff bracelet with a statement aquamarine set in white gold and yellow gold openwork I know that Gwyneth would have had her best red carpet moment in a really long time. Lucy Boynton is definitely a style star I love to see on the red carpet. Since her breakout thanks to Bohemian Rhapsody last year I have followed her quirky sense of style closely. I wanted to go for something super eclectic for Lucy so when I saw this Rodarte Fall 2020 RTW purple, blue, and black sequined ensemble which features a short puff sleeve crop top jacket and a pair of high waisted slim fit straight leg pants I knew it would have been a major moment for her to have brought to life on the red carpet at this premiere. It is definitely a little more 90’s grunge than the lighter bohemian looks we are used to seeing Lucy wearing on the red carpet, but she is very much a style chameleon and I think it does work with what have come to expect from her. I think that a wavy bob, thick midnight blue smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Callie’ feather covered chain strap bag, and a pair of black satin Roger Vivier ‘Twinkle Star’ embellished strappy slingback platform chunky heel sandals would have definitely add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble. Finishing out today’s wishes is the gorgeous Zoey Deutch. I LOVE seeing this lady on the red carpet and in the last year she has really grown into a major red carpet heavy hitter. I think that the hooded robins egg blue Valentino Couture couture gown that she wore at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party showcased this perfectly. Now while she hasn’t worn Alexandre Vauthier on the red carpet before I was drawn to the idea of he red headed actress wearing this pistachio green strapless tiered ruffled a-line mid calf cocktail dress from his Spring 2020 Couture collection on this red carpet. I can’t recall ever seeing Zoey wearing this color of green on the red carpet before, but the way this look comes to life in my mind I was easily sold on the idea of it. This dress itself is a statement all on its own so I would have finished it with a sleek retro updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of melon green metallic leather Miu Miu strappy crystal embellished slingback sandals, and a collar necklace in 18k yellow gold with mixed-cut diamonds over 40 total carats from the 2019 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Collection to have made this a major glamour moment for Zoey to have brought to life on the red carpet.
