2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

The SAG Awards broadcast is this weekend. I say broadcast because I am sure that the Screen Actors Guild has already started bringing their presenters and nominees together to record their sections as this years show will be pre-recorded and broadcast with a 1 hour television special. I am not sure how they are going to condense the whole show into just one hour, but I am sure there will be a way for them to do it. I’ve been ruminating on my wishes for this event for a while. It actually put me in a bit of a funk. I was originally going to start these as soon as I was done with my Grammy’s wishes, but because of the circumstances I just wasn’t feeling inspired. In fact until this past weekend when I finally finished putting the wishes together I was still uninspired. I will not be detailing out everyone. I have just decided that I don’t have that in me right now, but I have a couple days of detailed wishes that will culminate in a big round up style post for everyone else. I picked the stars featured in my detailed wishes based on who I was able to easily pick a look for and who I know has been turning out looks during our virtual awards season. Kicking things off is Amy Adams whom earned a surprise nomination this awards season for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role in a Movie thanks to her role as Beverly “Bev” Vance in Hillbilly Elegy. I’ve always loved Amy and her style, but in more recent years her looks have missed the mark for me. We haven’t seen her show a fashion look since Emmy night 2019 where she wore a hideous Fendi Couture gown. I want to see her give us GLAMOUR this weekend for the SAG Awards and I know it would be a perfect moment to see her wearing this black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2021 RTW crystal embroidered halter neck column gown which features a draped bodice and keyhole bodice cutout. It is classically glamorous and I think that it would be a great moment for Amy to bring to life for the SAG Awards. I would then take this classic gown and style it with a sleek retro glam updo, thick defined soft smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Tom Form ‘TF 105’ slingback pointed toe pumps, and a selection of Cartier jewels including intricate vintage white diamond chandelier earrings and a statement ‘L’Odyssée de Cartier’ white diamond cuff bracelet to really make this look scream glamour from head to toe. Over the course of this major winning awards season Catherine O’Hara has given more understand glam looks with a custom Vera Wang suit at the Golden Globes and a black Elie Saab ruffled cocktail dress for the Critics Choice Awards. For this weekends SAG Awards I would really love to see Catherine finish out the awards run for Schitt’s Creek giving us a bit of razzle dazzle wearing this black, gold, and white art deco inspired Elie Saab Spring 2018 Couture long sleeve column gown. I am SHOCKED that no one has worn this gown yet. I would have figured Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta Jones, Nadine Labaki, or Jane Fonda would have fought over this dress. Three years later we are still waiting to see it have a red carpet moment. I feel like it is totally in tune with Catherine’s chic and sophisticated sense of style and it would make sure that she sends Schitt’s Creek off in HIGH glam style. I feel like her soft wave center parted and worn down, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Roger Vivier gold metal crystal buckle platform chunky heel strappy sandals, and simple elegant IVY New York red spinel and white diamond drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Emma Corrin has been serving LEWKS this awards season. She collected her Golden Globe wearing custom clown inspired Miu Miu and then went for bold 80’s inspired style with a Schiaparelli mini dress for the Critics Choice Awards. Her style has been top notch and I am sad her tenure with the cast of The Crown is coming to an end. After her wins this year I would say that her portrayal of Princess Diana has her as the favorite to take home the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series trophy this year. I went for edgy glam with this silver and black Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless tea length gown with a halter neck vest and a spaghetti strap slip dress for Emma. Now I would ditch the belt from the runway and style this dress with her edgy cropped hairstyle, navy blue glitter Pat McGrath Labs ‘Dark Star’ smokey eyes, soft pink lips, strappy black Awge x Amina Muaddi ‘Isd Gladi’ thigh high crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Messika jewels including asymmetrical white diamond wing cluster earrings and a white diamond fringe cuff bracelet to make sure this look is in line with Emma’s bold edgy glam style.Helen Mirren is one of the announced presenters for this weekend’s show. I have always loved seeing Helen on a red carpet and I cannot wait to see what look she will turn. She isn’t afraid of giving bold glamour on a red carpet and as I am working planning out the rest of awards season and headed into events like Cannes I cannot wait for Helen to serve more and more looks again. I was saving images from the Fall 2021 RTW collections when I saw this hot pink Tony Ward long sleeve a-line gown which features intricate beading on the bodice and sleeves, a jagged drop waist, and a tulle skirt. I immediately thought of Helen when I saw this gown and when I saw she was presenting at the SAG Awards I immediately thought of this gown. It’s such a bold statement moment and I know that Helen would be able to sell it to me easily especially with a sophisticated side parted hairstyle, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of hot pink Alexandre Vauthier crystal toe cap PVC sling back pointed toe pumps, and a bit more sparkle via white diamond Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond cluster earrings. Finishing out today is Vanessa Kirby who has given some simple yet very chic looks this awards season wearing a simple black Gucci halter gown for the Globes and a red lace Saint Laurent gown for the Critics Choice Awards. I have definitely been paying attention to Vanessa and I am praying that she brings major looks to her final stops on the awards season circuit. She knows how to do major tailoring moments so I knew pretty immediately that I wanted to do this black and white Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 RTW tuxedo inspired ensemble for her to rock for the SAG Awards. I love this look which consists of a classic white button down shirt and a pair of black high waisted slim fit trousers with a major bow peplum detail. It is simple, sophisticated, and classic but in a way that SCREAMS drama. I mean can a look be classic and statement making at the same time? Because I definitely think that this look is exactly that. While Vanessa has a very no muss no fuss sense of style I think that the bow detail is within her wheelhouse. I think a sleek down hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black crystal embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Loubiloo Bling Bang’ twist strap ankle strap sandals, and Bulgari ‘Barroko’ collection white diamond and ruby bunting cluster drop earrings would ensure this look fit’s in perfectly with Vanessa’s red carpet vibe.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 15

Well. The 2021 Golden Globe Awards are tomorrow night. In a normal world there would be a ballroom packed full of stars, but well COVID has killed that for all of awards season this year. So instead of writing about the stars who are part of the casts of films and television programs that are nominated, plus ones, and people whom I would usually expect to see on this red carpet I thought I would just put a gallery of wishes together. So as the words to “Audition” from LA LA Land goes “Here’s to the fools who dream, foolish as they may seem.”

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

Just going to continue on with my 2021 Golden Globe Award wishes today and I have to say this set might be among some of my favorite wishes for this years red carpet. I hope that even in lockdown that stars will get all dressed up for the 2021 Golden Globes. The five ladies in today’s wishes run the gambit of established fashionistas, rising stars who we could mostly see grow, and icons. So let’s get into these wishes today shall we?Kicking things off is Promising Young Woman star Carey Mulligan whose performance in the film was absolutely phenomenal. I would definitely consider her a top tier candidate to take home the Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama trophy this year.  With stars that are expected at multiple big events over the course of the year I tend to make a plan. I know all of Carey’s go to designers. Dior, Chanel, Prada, Gucci, and Erdem are all labels she is known to wear, and I was thinking about looking at looks for her I am definitely considering moments from all of them. I’ve already done Chanel and have Armani & Prada in the queue for other upcoming wishes so I turned to Dior for the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. I don’t know what it was about this fluffy nude pink Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture strapless ballgown which features pressed flower inspired detail on the bodice and a ruffled tulle skirt that spoke to me for Carey, but it does. She doesn’t go for big ball gowns for the red carpet, but I really want to see her go BIG or go home with her looks for the 2021 Awards Season. It is a bold take on bohemian glamour and is one of the few Dior by Maria Grazia Chiuri looks I actually want to see on a red carpet. It honestly surprises me that it hasn’t been worn yet. I think that on Carey with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of nude pearl embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Baily 100’ pointed toe mary-jane pumps, and vintage 19th century imperial topaz & gold pendant earrings from Fred Leighton it would be a winning red carpet moment. Emerald Fennell is the breakout director of Promising Young Woman and one of the record THREE women nominated for this years Best Director award. I have to say that while the preview did not make this movie look good to me I absolutely LOVED this movie and what Emerald did with it. She’s also nominated for Best Original Screenplay so I really want to see her show up and deliver a super chic moment on the red carpet. I don’t know if it was just subconscious but I was drawn to this emerald lamé Andrew Gn Fall 2021 RTW long sleeve pleated gown which features a very intricate crystal necklace embroidered into the neckline. I do think that this gown would fit and flatter all of Emerald’s curves and give a super glam moment for her to bring to the Golden Globe Awards red carpet especially styled with a sleek updo with bangs, defined eyes, rose pink lips, an emerald green satin Christian Louboutin ‘Palmette’ clutch, a pair of emerald green metallic leather Alevi Milano ‘Laila 110’ strappy peep toe sandals, and simple halo set emerald cut white diamond Norman Silverman stud earrings. Margot Robbie is one of the producers of Promising Young Woman and to be honest I almost forgot to include her in my wishes because, well when I originally went through the nominees her name wasn’t on the list just the films title. But of course I had to include her and pick a real boss lady look for her to wear on this red carpet. As she is a Chanel ambassador I had two looks narrowed down for her and I actually turned to the Margot fan style account @MargotFashionFiles on Instagram to help me narrow. She helped me lean towards this white Chanel Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features a tunic style gown with black trim, a plunging neckline, side boob, and bow detail paired with straight leg trousers. I wasn’t sure if this was too out of the box for Margot, but I would absolutely love to see her bring this look to life on the red carpet. I could see her styling this look with loose waves, thick winged eyes, bold red lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ pearl and crystal trimmed clutch, a pair of black peep toe Jimmy Choo ‘Pearl’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Chanel Haute Jewelry ‘Secrets d’Orients’ jewels including white diamond and pearl fringe chandelier earrings and a matching art deco inspired cuff bracelet. Now I did joke with @MargotFashionFiles that while this and the other option I had for her (which I just might save for another red carpet wish list) are so chic, but she would most likely wear the disaster that was Chanel Spring 2021 Couture look 12. I pray that she does go with this RTW look for all of our sake. Glenn Close always knows how to deliver chic moments on the red carpet and when I saw her name on the list of nominees for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to her role in Hillbilly Elegy I was very excited. I wanted the right person to wear this burgundy Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2021 floral crystal embroidered stretch crepe gown which feature long sleeves a caped back, and dramatic train to be nominated and when Glenn’s name was called I knew immediately that this was going to be my wish for her. I love this gown. It is super glamorous and definitely very age appropriate for Glenn. I could see the color being phenomenal and with a chic grey blonde pixie, defined eyes, soft antique rose pink lips, a burgundy velvet Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, a pair of burgundy velvet Aquazzura ‘So Nude’ pointed toe sling back pumps, and white diamond David Webb ‘Swirl’ cluster earrings I know this would be an absolutely glamorous moment for her to bring to life on the red carpet at the Globes. The last wish today is all about Jodie Foster who was a surprise nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to her performance of The Mauritanian. When it comes to fashion Jodie isn’t someone who is going to push boundaries. I would love to see Jodie who loves herself a good suit wearing this silver diamond pattern embroidered silk Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture tuxedo with wide lapels, a crystal button, tapered trousers, and a black vest style blouse. There really wasn’t any other options that I had for Jodie. She wears Armani so beautifully and I feel like this would be right in step with her style. A side parted wavy bob, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a black satin Giorgio Armani clutch with decorative origami detail, a pair of black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Love 100’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and simple Anita Ko white gold set white diamond huggies with three round diamond drops would definitely finish this look perfectly for Jodie.

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.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

With every passing day I get a little more optimistic that the 2021 Golden Globe Awards will be absolutely fantastic. I really feel like even though nominees will join the show remotely that with presenters appearing live that this show will feel real and authentic. We are still very much in the midst of my nominees wishes for this years Golden Globe Awards. I don’t know what it was about 2020 but despite the fact that there felt like a lack of movies and even new television programs that this years red carpets could have been the strongest in years. The stars in today’s wishes include two who I don’t expect major things from but will continue to wish big, a red carpet princess, a dude who subtly pushes the boundaries, and a new Chanel girl who just might be the brands best ambassador yet. History has already been made at the 2021 Golden Globes just thanks to the nominees in the Best Director category. This year a record 3 women are nominated and two of them are women of color. Chloe Zhao is one of them. She has been lauded since the film made its debut in Venice where it won 3 awards including the Best Picture award. So I am definitely keeping my eyes on her as one to watch this awards season. As I was looking at her past red carpet appearances it seems like Chloe avoids black tie events and really just rocks very comfy and casual looks for photo lines. It makes sense she is more behind the scenes thank in front of the camera glam. But with a possible run to Oscar gold ahead of her I have some superb options in mind to push her through awards season this year starting with this color blocked gold, gunmetal, and bronze sequin Tom Ford Spring 2015 RTW long sleeve column gown. It is definitely going to push Chloe’s comfort zone, but I do think it would be a really cool and glamorous moment for the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. I wouldn’t push the boundaries with the styling keeping with her regular barely there makeup, wash and go hair, black satin Tom Ford ‘TF 105’ pointed toe pumps, and yellow gold ‘Cactus de Cartier’ drop earrings to make this a super chic and glamorous red carpet moment. I would say that this awards season has to be exactly what Frances McDormand dreams of. Even when she made the winning awards season run for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri she never made an actual appearance on any of the red carpets including the Oscars. In fact the only red carpet I feel like she’s actually stopped to pose for in recent years is when she was a guest of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s at the 2018 Met Gala. I wouldn’t expect her to doll up if she is joining the broadcast from home, but hey I can dream right? For formal occasions she has exclusively worn Valentino, mostly customized RTW looks. So when I was starting to pick looks I went shopping on the virtual racks. I found this red Valentino ‘Le Rouge’ silk chiffon long sleeve dress with a flowing pleated a-line skirt. It is a very chic moment and I would believe that this look would definitely be something that Frances would be drawn to. Her short pixie style, no makeup, and a pair of red Valentino ‘Rockstud’ flat leather sandals would finish this look in true Frances McDormand style.After being surprisingly shut out at the Emmy Awards, save for a Directing and Writing nomination, The Great is getting some awards season love. Elle Fanning earned her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy thanks to her role as Catherine the Great. Regular readers will know that I always LOVE to see Elle Fanning on a red carpet and I am praying that she will go all out for her first Globes nomination even if she does join the telecast remotely. I would love to see Elle give us princess glamour wearing this seafoam green Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture strapless ballgown with pink and blue floral hand painted and beaded detail from neckline to hem. It was one of my favorite pieces from this collection and I would love to see this red carpet princess bring it to life on the red carpet. I would style this moment with a sleek romantic curl detail updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of silver metallic leather Roger Vivier ‘RV Bouquet’ floral strass buckle pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of Chopard ‘Precious’ collection jewels including paisley white diamond wreath hoop earrings and a white diamond and pink diamond ring to make ooze glamour from head to toe. Nicholas Hoult is a man that can give very chic menswear moments. So I would absolutely love to see him give a superb moment at the Golden Globe Awards where he has also earned his first nomination. I would love to see Nicholas, who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, wearing this black Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 menswear tuxedo which features the signature LV monogram flowers embroidered on it. It is a chic moment with some extraordinary details and I think that it is a perfect moment for Nicholas to rock on this red carpet with the runway styling minus the cross body bag and swapping shoes for a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ slip on oxfords.Last up today is an emerging star who is quickly becoming one of the best Chanel ambassadors. It was in the lead up to the Emmy’s we first saw Shira Haas wearing some Chanel looks for virtual appearances to promote Unorthodox. Then she was one of the few in a couture gown for the Emmy’s. All of these looks came courtesy of Chanel. So I have a hard time believing that she would be wearing anything other than Chanel for this years Golden Globe Awards. I was looking at the collections and thought that this sand tulle Chanel Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless gown with features a drop waist, slight v-neck, knotted top, and a beaded macrame bodice. It is chic and bohemian and honestly something that is more Maria Grazia’s Dior than Chanel, but I absolutely think it would be perfect for Shira to wear for the Golden Globes. A chic curly pixie, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of champagne gold glitter Aquazzura ‘May’ strappy sandals, and Chanel Haute Joaillerie “Escale à Venise” asymmetrical 18k gold and white diamond camellia and leaf ear cuff and stud earrings would definitely make this look ooze youthful bohemian sophistication.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

We got really great news yesterday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the body that presents the Golden Globe Awards, put out a request that presenters are being asked to appear live and in person at either the Beverly Hilton in LA or the Rainbow Room in New York. Now while the presenters will appear live it is reported that nominees will still appear remotely. I wonder how this will work. Usually nominees are among the list of presenters at the event and I am really interested in seeing what will come from this years red carpet. In today’s wishes we have nominees across film and television this year, for those nominated for their work in front and behind the cameras, and a legend who will be honored. Each of these wishes are definitely phenomenal moments I would absolutely adore seeing each look brought to life. Amanda Seyfried earned her first Golden Globe Award nomination this year for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to her performance in Mank. I have always loved seeing Amanda on the red carpet and I would love to see her bring the glamour and drama to the red carpet be it in person or remote. I adore this rose pink Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture one shoulder draped gown which features a dramatic rosette shoulder detail, cape sash, belted waist, and a thigh high split. It is a very feminine approach to dramatic glamour and I know it would be something that Amanda would definitely be drawn to. With a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, deep raspberry pink lips, a pair of nude pink Aquazzura ‘Celeste 105’ crystal-knot grosgrain sandals, and dazzling Cartier High Jewelry white diamond, pink sapphire, opal, and amethyst drop earrings I know that this look would be perfection from head to toe giving Amanda an absolutely glamorous moment. Her role as polarizing conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs. America has earned Cate Blanchett her 11th Golden Globe nomination. In the last year Cate has really put forward in her initiative to wear and rewear items in her closet. We saw this on display most recently when Cate rewore looks from Armani, Esteban Cortezar, and Alexander McQueen during her times as the jury president at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. I wonder if that will be the case should we see her take part in this years Golden Globe Awards telecast. If she does I would absolutely adore seeing Cate pull out the black velvet Armani Prive gown with white ostrich feather cape that she first wore to the 2018 Venice Film Festival premiere of A Star Is Born. I have always felt that gown is the epitome of classic glamour and Cate would definitely be able to sell it to me again. Now If she chose to wear something we haven’t seen her wear I still went into the archives to pick a “vintage” gown for her with this black crepe and velvet long sleeve column gown from the Armani Prive Fall 2008 Couture collection which features a plunging neckline, crystal embellishment at the hip, and a faux wrap style. This gown isn’t statement making, but is another fine example of incredible classic glamour. Now both gowns I would style the same way; with a sleek retro glam updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black beaded lace Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie 105’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling Tiffany & Co. ‘Schlumberger® Star and Moon’ earrings in platinum with round sapphires of over 10 total carats and round brilliant diamonds. Since 1962 Jane Fonda has been nominated for 15 Golden Globe Awards and has won seven. This year the icon will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. This award is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations Board of Governors for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. We can definitely say that Jane has done that from her role in Barbarella to Grace and Frankie. She has been a force on the screen for almost sixty years. I am very interested in what Jane may wear for this occasion. She made a big deal last year at the Oscars re-wearing a ruby red crystal embellished Elie Saab Couture gown first worn in Cannes with a coat that she touted as the last piece of clothing she would ever buy. So I would imagine that Jane will most likely bring something out of her closet to accept this years award. When I was looking at what Jane has worn on red carpets in recent years I thought it would be perfect for her to accept this years DeMille award wearing this electric blue customized Atelier Versace long sleeve fit to flare dress with an asymmetrical neckline, nude illusion cutout details, and a sweeping train (seen above left) that she first wore to the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. It was one of my favorite looks that year I can definitely see myself loving it yet again should she wear it this year, especially switching up the styling with her grey hair in a sleek side parted style, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of electric blue Alexandre Vauthier ‘ANEPUMPBLUE’ metallic leather crystal trimmed and PVC pointed toe d’Orsay pumps, and a bit of sparkle via Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond and sapphire chandelier earrings. Now I also thought that picking something vintage borrowed from a designers archive would be allowed under Jane’s activist stance on clothing. If it is I would absolutely love to see Jane dig in the Valentino archives and snatch out this red long sleeve column gown which features a high neck and an ostrich feather trimmed hem from the Valentino Fall 2001 RTW collection. There haven’t been many who have been able to get into the archives and wear Valentino by Mr. Valentino himself, but I would definitely love to see Jane bring this gown out of the archive and onto the red carpet. Now for the Valentino dress I would love to see it styled with Jane’s signature hairstyle, defined eyes, glossy pink lips, a pair of red crystal embellished satin Rene Caovilla pointed toe pumps, and simple Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond scalloped cluster earrings. Which ever route she chooses I am very excited to see what she will wear. One Night in Miami star Leslie Odom Jr. is one of my men to watch this awards season. While promoting the film from home we have seen him wearing classic menswear looks with a twist from labels like Etro and Moschino. So I am very much intrigued to see what the actor who earned his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to his portrayal of Sam Cooke in One Night in Miami will wear for December. So I was looking for a cool look and fell in love with the idea of Leslie wearing this navy blue textured two button Dzojchen Spring 2021 tuxedo. I love the simple twist on the classic cut and feel like it would definitely be a great choice for him. Now I go back and forth if I want to see Leslie wear the matching trousers with this look for the Globes. I am leaning towards no and going a little more classic with custom solid navy tuxedo trousers with the satin stripe down the side finishing the look with a crisp white shirt, navy satin bow tie, a pair of black patent leather Tom Ford ‘Gianni’ lace-up oxfords, and a midnight blue Montblanc ‘1858 Geosphere’ watch. Regina King is once again nominated for a Golden Globe this year after winning two years ago. This year she is nominated for Best Director for her feature film directorial debut One Night In Miami. We’ve already had a major red carpet at the Venice Film Festival stolen from us. She is very much in contention to take home this trophy so I would definitely want to see Regina give us a major glamour moment. I found that in this orchid purple Antonio Grimaldi Spring 2021 Couture on shoulder gown which features a single blouson sleeve, defined waist, column git, and a sweeping train. I adore when Regina gives us bold color moments and I can just imagine this gown being a major moment on her. This gown would hug all of Regina’s curves. With a sleek updo, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of rich fuschia purple Aquazzura ‘Tequila 105’ strappy crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a selection of jewels from Vanleles including round, marquise, & pear shaped white diamond ‘Bridal Cuff’ hoop wreath earrings and a white diamond ‘Legends of Africa Iconic’ diamond ring we would definitely have a major glamour moment on our hands.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

After picking 4 looks for Amy Poehler yesterday I have four more wishes for the other hostess of the 2021 Golden Globe Awards today. I am very much intrigued to see how this years show will work. Tina Fey will join the awards broadcast from the Rainbow Room in New York while Amy is in the ballroom at the Beverly Hilton in LA. Of the two hosts Tina definitely has more fashion chops. She has taken the stage at the Globes as hostess in the past in looks from L’Wren Scott, Carolina Herrera, & Antonio Berardi in years past. While I would imagine that will be the case once again this year I have 4 looks from different designers in today’s wish that would be phenomenal on Tina. The first look I’ve picked for Tina is definitely the most “Tina” of all of my picks. She loves a black dress and when I was looking at options I was really intrigued by the thought of her wearing this black crystal embellished horsehair Armani Prive Fall 2019 Couture strapless a-line ball gown which features a tiered skirt. I feel like this gown is classically elegant and it would be an outstanding option for Tina to wear on the “red carpet.” Now on the runway this gown was styled with a beaded belt. I would leave it on the rack for Tina as I feel like it would just cut off Tina’s torso. A simple side parted updo, defined eyes, rose pink glossy lips, a black Tyler Ellis ‘Lily’ glitter medley plexi clutch, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Liu 100’ mesh paneled ankle strap peep toe half d’Orsay sandals, and a STATEMENT Cartier High Jewelry white diamond collar necklace would all make this a super glamorous moment for Tina to kick off the evening.  Now for my wishes for the actual show wardrobe. My first wardrobe change for Tina digs deep into the Ralph Lauren archives. I absolutely adore this sexy and glamorous red sequin spaghetti strap slip dress from the Ralph Lauren Fall 1995 RTW collection and I feel like Tina would look phenomenal in this look. She has worn silhouette’s like this in the past and has always looked great. I love the classic glamour of this look and I believe that with the same beauty as the Armani gown adding a pair of red Alexandre Vauthier ‘Aoki 100’ pointed toe ankle strap pumps and a pair of Cartier High Jewelry white diamond and ruby scalloped cluster earrings would make this a very chic moment for Tina.

Now I decided that I wanted to see Tina really give us some major color moments while hosting the 2021 Golden Globe Awards. The next look I would love to see Tina wear is this bold emerald green Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2021 button detailed long sleeve jersey maxi dress which features a plunging neckline, faux wrap style, and sunburst pleating. It is the “newest” of all the looks I’ve picked for Tina and the color would be fantastic on her. I will say that I was surprised to see that this gown was Elie Saab as it does have a much of the same design as we usually see from Balmain commercial designs. It would be such a strong and sexy moment from Tina with classic old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, glossy nude pink lips, beige glitter and mesh Christian Louboutin ‘Follies 85’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and a pair of geometric Cartier High Jewelry white diamond and emerald drop earrings.

My final pick for Tina is yet another phenomenal archive gown. I was first reminded of the glamour of this white crystal embellished halter gown from the Michael Kors Fall 2005 RTW collection last year as I was researching for my Met Gala wishes. I cannot recall anyone wearing this look before and I believe that this glamorous moment deserves to finally be given a red carpet moment. I feel like it would be a perfect look for Tina and a dazzling moment for the Golden Globe Awards telecast especially with a pair of white Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, a chic side parted updo, defined eyes, glossy pink lips, and circular Cartier High Jewelry ‘Faune et Flore de Cartier’ white diamond drop earrings.

2020 Venice Film Festival: Closing Ceremony Red Carpet Wish List

Today I close out my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival with a couple of looks for the Closing Ceremony. Sometimes the closing ceremony is lacking in stars and sometimes it isn’t. I don’t remember Naomi Watts or Stacy Martin walking the red carpet at the end of their jury duty, but I want to make sure this festival ends as strong as I’ve wished for it to start. For my final wish for 2020 jury president Cate Blanchett I went back to Armani Prive. I had to bookend her time in Venice with looks from the festival sponsor. I’ve been LOVING the idea of her wearing this electric blue arabesque lace one shoulder a-line gown from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture as I’ve been going through all my wishes. It was one of the first looks I picked for Cate. I feel like this bold color moment would be an absolutely gorgeous look for her to close out the festival in. It’s been a really long time since we’ve seen Cate wear this a shade of blue this bold. I can just imagine it being stand out against her soft alabaster skin. A sleek retro updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of electric blue satin Amina Muaddi ‘Begum’ pointed toe crystal broach detailed curved heel pumps, and white diamond Chopard ‘Precious’ collection chandelier earrings would make this look just scream glamour. As I have said several times I am really interested in seeing what French actress Ludivine Sagnier will wear on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival as the checks in for jury duty this year. She has a very effortlessly French approach to style. Dior is such a quintessential French brand that I couldn’t go through all my Venice wishes for Ludivine without including one look from the brand for her. I have loved this silver pleated metallic silk Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture gown which features an asymmetrical bodice since it was presented. I feel like it is the perfect balance of high glam and bohemian elegance, which is exactly what I feel Ludivine’s style is all about. I would love to see her bring this look to life with a soft romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, a grey crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch, a pair of silver crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ‘Ellabrita’ ankle strap satin sandals, and a selection of Veschetti white diamond jewels including ‘Cortina’ three row waterfall earrings and a ‘Kate’ five row cuff bracelet. Anna Foglietta will be back on the Venice Film Festival red carpet at the Closing Ceremony as the event’s hostess. I once again turned to festival sponsor Giorgio Armani for the perfect gown for Anna to wear on the lido red carpet. I adore this nude strapless Armani Prive Fall 2019 Couture diamond cutout sequined column gown overlaid with sheer tulle. It screams glamour and I feel like Anna has the right vibe about her to really make this look come to life. I would love to see her style this gown with a curly updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a nude Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ sun burst crystal diamante embellished satin rectangle box clutch, a pair of ballet pink Alevi Milano ‘Penelope’ crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a statement Buccellati ‘Bartolomeo’ white and yellow gold set white diamond bib necklace to make sure that Anna delivers head to toe glamour on the Venice Film Festival closing ceremony red carpet. In my final wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival I would love to see Spanish supermodel Eugenia Silva bring two gorgeous Armani Prive gowns to life on the red carpet. Over the course of my wishes for this years Venice Film Festival I’ve picked 32 looks from Armani so far for stars promoting films, jury members, and guests and these last two bring that total to 34. I am definitely expecting that, as in the last two years, Armani will dominate the red carpet. Eugenia can deliver some major fashion moments on the red carpet so I picked this blue organza detailed column gown which features intricate red beading from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture collection. I feel like Eugenia knows how to deliver statuesque moments on the red carpet and she would make sure this look is a truly exciting fashion moment. Style it with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, deep red lips, a navy Jeffrey Levinson ‘Elina Plus’ rounded clutch, a pair of midnight blue Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and a selection of major Van Cleef & Arpels jewels including simple white diamond and sapphire drop earrings, a statement art deco inspired white diamond and sapphire cuff bracelet, and a large princess cut sapphire and white diamond cocktail ring and I know that Eugenia would slink down the red carpet in full glam. The second look is one I’ve been wanting to see on the red carpet since it was first presented. I LOVE this sunset orange Armani Prive Spring 2017 Couture one shoulder column gown. It needs a red carpet moment and I think that Eugenia would be able to make it the major fashion moment I know it can be especially if styled with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a gold metallic leather Roger Vivier crystal buckle detail clutch, a pair of strappy gold metallic leather Roger Vivier ankle strap sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 fire opal, citrine, white diamond, and ruby paisley drop earrings.

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.

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.

2020 Venice Film Festival: “The World to Come” Photocall & Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

We are getting close to the end of my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival, but I still have several major fashion moments that I want to see brought to life on the red carpet. Today I have wishes for the red carpet at the premiere of The World to Come. The movie is about how somewhere along the mid-19th century American East Coast frontier, two neighboring couples battle hardship and isolation, witnessed by a splendid yet testing landscape, challenging them both physically and psychologically. I believe that this film will have a glamorous red carpet and the looks I want to see the cast, jury, and an Armani girl bring to life on the red carpet are MAJOR. So let’s get into them. The World To Come is the second film that Vanessa Kirby will be screening at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. I really want her to deliver MAJOR fashion moments on the red carpet. I was highly unimpressed with the nude and burgundy beaded Valentino look she wore on the red carpet at the BAFTA Awards earlier this year. It wasn’t a bad look, but it just wasn’t event appropriate. For her time in Venice I’ve already picked looks from Balmain & Valentino which speaks to two different sides of Vanessa’s style. Today’s wishes speaks to two more. For the photocall I picked a more feminine take on bohemian glamour with this red and green floral print Brock Collection Resort 2021 ‘Saura’ smocked taffeta midi dress which features a straight strapless neckline and a pleated a-line skirt. I adore this dress and I definitely think it speaks to Vanessa and her sense of style. It is the right balance of casual and cocktail for a daytime photocall without it being too much. A romantic updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of metallic gold Francesco Russo braided leather strappy sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. The look I would love to see Vanessa wearing on the red carpet at the films premiere I went to the sexier side of Vanessa’s style with this blush pink Atelier Versace Fall 2020 Couture thin strap asymmetrically ruffled gown which features a v-neckline, a thigh high split, and a short train. I would actually like to see Donatella customize this gown to have a longer train since the Lido red carpet is a major stage for fashion. This gown with a sleek side parted beehive hairstyle, defined eyes, pink lips, nude Aquazzura ‘So Vera’ crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a selection of Tiffany & Co. jewels including a pair of chain link drop earrings in platinum with morganites and white diamonds and a statement white diamond and morganite lace cuff bracelet would definitely be a major moment for Vanessa to wear in Venice. As I was creating my dream Venice Film Festival wardrobe for Cate Blanchett Daniel Lee released the lookbook for this Resort 2021 collection for Bottega Veneta. So far only Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Rihanna have made me actually like his creations for the Italian luxury house. I saw this silver pailette sequined halter cocktail dress in the lookbook I immediately thought of it as a killer custom gown for Cate. I always feel like Cate would definitely be able to sell this dress as a gown to me. She can wear just about anything. It would switch things up from the more classic and feminine looks I’ve picked for Cate to wear in Venice thus far. This silver sequin gown is a sharp modern moment. A sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a silver metal Bottega Veneta ‘Knot’ clutch, silver studded Aquazzura ‘Dream’ PVC peep toe sandals, and de Grisogono ‘Ventaglio’ white diamond fan drop earrings would make sure this look screams modern glamour from head to toe. I don’t know why by I felt like I had to include a super chic red carpet lady pants moment for jury member Ludivine Sagnier. Aside from a shorts suit at one Venice Film Festival Ludivine is usually wearing a cocktail dress or gown on the red carpet. So I don’t know what it was about this years festival that made me want to include a major pants moment for her. Anyway I think this black and white Ronald Van Der Kemp Fall 2020 Couture tuxedo ensemble which features a poet blouse and slim fit cigarette pants with a dramatic train was on my brain and I feel like it would be a super cool moment for her to rock on the red carpet in Venice. A wavy bob, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black pleated chiffon Christian Louboutin ‘Goya Ruban’ pointed toe satin ribbon ankle tie pumps, and simple white diamond and ruby Bulgari ‘Divas Dream’ chandelier earrings would definitely make this a major fashion moment for Ludivine. It was the thought of Anne Hathaway wearing Armani Prive for events like the Golden Globe Awards and Oscars a decade ago that made me want to include her in my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival. I’ve been ready for her to WOW me again. She did great earlier this year at the Critics Choice Awards where she wore custom Atelier Versace. If she wore to jet to Venice, which to be honest is highly unlikely, I’ve picked two glamorous looks for her to bring to life on the Lido red carpet. The first is revisiting the same collection her blue 2009 Golden Globe gown came from with this blush nude one shoulder a-line gown from the Armani Prive Fall 2006 Couture collection which features a crystal embellished bodice and a flowing skirt. I definitely feel like this gown screams glamour and would make me fall in love with Anne on the red carpet again especially styled with a romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a light gold Tyler Ellis ‘Perry Large’ mirrored stingray leather clutch, a pair of gold and silver crystal embellished Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ ankle strap sandals, and Butani diamonds including a pair of fringe wreath earrings and a four row cocktail ring. The second look I picked for Anne is from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture collection with this navy blue and red abstract printed strapless intricately beaded asymmetrically tiered column gown. It is a gorgeous moment and I feel it would be perfect for a starlet representing Armani on the Venice Film Festival red carpet. I would love to see Anne wearing this gown a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a navy satin Judith Leiber Couture crystal clap clutch, a pair of navy suede Manolo Blahnik ‘Chaos’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of major Gismondi 1754 jewels including a gorgeous one of a kind white diamond wreath necklace and a statement white diamond and sapphire art deco cocktail ring. Both looks would make sure Anne is back on the top of her fashion game again.

2020 Venice Film Festival: “The Human Voice” Photocall & Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

The Human Voice was added to the Out of Competition selection in Venice after the full selection was released. The new film by Pedro Almodóvar, filmed and edited in record time as soon as the lockdown was lifted – The Human Voice, adapted from Jean Cocteau and starring Tilda Swinton. Since Swinton is being honored with an Honorary Golden Lion (the top prize in Venice) this year I was surprised that she didn’t have a film screening at the festival. Apparently so was the festival so they added The Human Voice. Almodóvar says: “I am very excited about coming back to Venice in such a special year, with COVID-19 as [an] involuntary guest. Everything will be different, and I am looking forward to discovering it in person.
It is an honour to accompany Tilda in a year in which she is receiving a very much deserved award Almodóvar was given the same honor last year). As a matter of fact, The Human Voice is a festival of Tilda, a display of her infinite and assorted registers as an actress. It’s been a spectacle to direct her.”So to promote The Human Voice I found to superb couture moments for the illustrious Tilda Swinton. I am always a fan of the actresses avant garde style and I cannot wait to see what she will bring to the red carpet in Venice. For the photocall I went for strong suiting with this draped white crepe wool Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture skirt suit. I adore this simple take on the classic skirt suit and I definitely think that it would be a super chic moment for Tilda to wear for the casual photocall event in Venice. I feel like it would be great with her flame orange red hair in a chic coif, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of white lace Gianvito Rossi ‘Liliane’ pointed toe pumps. Now for the premiere I went for DAZZLE picking this silver and white floral sequined Givenchy Spring 2020 Couture column gown which features a voluminous cocoon caped bodice. I love this dress and I hope it won’t be lost to the archive. The new creative director is now on the job at Givenchy so I don’t know if the house will allow stylists to option Clare Waight Keller’s final couture collection for the house. I hope so because I know that Tilda would shut it down especially if styled with her signature coif, defined eyes, nude pink lips, and a pair of silver Gianvito Rossi ‘Plexi’ PVC detailed pointed toe pumps. I appreciate that Venice decided to add One Night in Miami and The Human Voice to the selection. It allowed me to add wishes for Cate Blanchett that I felt I was missing. I really wanted to include an Alexander McQueen look for Cate to wear in Venice. I always love when she bring the avant garde labels creations to life on the red carpet. In keeping with Cate’s more sustainable approach to fashion I’ve been including several archive moments I would love to see her bring out and give red carpet moments. We didn’t see many of the looks from the final Alexander McQueen collection from the houses eponymous founder on the red carpet. I would die if Cate showed up on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival wearing this black long sleeve a-line gown which features intricate gold beaded embroidery on the bodice and sleeves, and a pleated skirt from the Alexander McQueen Fall 2010 RTW collection. I feel like it would definitely be a major fashion moment on the red carpet. A sleek updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of black and gold Pierre Hardy crystal embellished strappy sandals, and vintage gold Van Cleef & Arpels earrings set with circular-cut diamonds circa 1945 would definitely make sure this look is the perfect balance of drama and glamour. I’d also been thinking of a Prada or Miu Miu look for Venice jury member Ludivine Sagnier so the addition of this set of wishes allowed me to add a set for her. So I would love to see her take this black crinkled silk Prada Resort 2021 strapless midi dress and customize it turning it into a floor length ballgown with a sweeping train. It isn’t an avant garde over embellished moment we are used to seeing from Prada on the red carpet, especially not on a red carpet like this, but I feel like with Miuccia’s turn towards simplicity with the Resort 2021 season that it would be a really cool moment. I think that taking that customized gown styling it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, pink glossy lips, a black satin Prada jeweled applique clutch, a pair of black Prada crystal embellished sandals, and Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 white diamond teardrop paisley earrings would definitely make it a cool and glamorous moment. I’ve heard that Spanish actress and model Ester Exposito is heading to Venice to walk the red carpets. When I first heard that news my mind went directly to Etro. The Italian fashion brand has become such a major red carpet heavy hitter and I am expecting to see several looks from the label on the red carpet. So I went shopping from the runways and the virtual store racks and didn’t really find anything that I love. So I’m getting creative. I did love this gold lame long sleeve wrap style dress from the Etro Fall 2020 RTW collection which features a daring plunging neckline, center split, and an intricately embroidered wide velvet belt. I would love to see Ester rock a custom gown using this as inspiration. I feel like cutting the sleeves and making this a sleeveless disco gown lengthening the skirt to hit the floor could make it a super sexy glamorous moment for Ester. Taking this gown styling with a sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, pink lips, a gold glitter resin Yliana Yepez ‘Eva’ tassel detailed minaudiere, a pair of gold metallic leather Jimmy Choo ‘Tesca’ strappy sandals, and a statement white diamond and multicolored precious stone Bulgari ‘Barocko’ collection bib necklace would definitely be a super glam moment for Ester. Now in a second wish for her I wanted to give Ester a modern princess moment with this dark midnight blue, gold, and white watercolor marble pattern Georges Hobeika Fall 2020 Couture ballgown which features a plunging neckline and a thin gold belted waist. I really think that this gown would be a gorgeous moment. I would love to see her take this gown and deliver it on the red carpet in Venice with a sleek updo, soft smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of gold ombre glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pointed toe pumps, and a Pomellato High Jewelry ‘Gourmette’ chain necklace made up of 2900 brown diamonds with a total of 69 carats that took the master jewelers 190 hours of work to complete.When I was adding another star who I would love to see rock the red carpet in Venice to represent Armani I really wanted make a statement so I decided to go with Zendaya. We’ve seen Zendaya front row at the Armani Prive Fall 2019 Couture presentation as well as wearing the label for the Spider-Man: Far From Home premiere. So I would LOVE to see Zendaya on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival rocking two MAJOR gowns from the brands archive starting with this hot pink Armani Prive Fall 2007 Couture strapless high low bustier ballgown which features a bow layered ball skirt with black lining. To me this is the Zendaya style version of the iconic Gentlemen Prefer Blondes Marilyn Monroe gown. I really love to see her bring this major moment to life with a sleek center parted hairstyle tucked behind the ears, soft smokey eyes, bold pink lips, a pair of matching hot pink Christian Louboutin ‘Degrastrass’ crystal embellished suede and PVC pointed toe pumps, and a dazzling Tiffany & Co. 2020 Blue Book collection white diamond and pink tourmaline strand bib necklace. The second look I picked for Zendaya isn’t as big, but just as statement making. I love this acid green strapless Armani Prive Spring 2012 Couture column gown which features a reptile skin beaded body and a feathered hem. This look was from the repeat show in Beijing where Giorgio Armani added a couple of new looks to the ones shown from the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. I would LOVE to see Zendaya slink down a major red carpet like Venice wearing this gown. Make it perfection with an abstract yet sleek retro inspired updo, soft smokey eyes, soft pink lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen’ ankle strap sandals. I would also like to see Zendaya highlight a black owned high jewelry brand with this gown styling the look with Vanlees jewels including a pair of white diamond and emerald ‘Legends of Africa’ wing earrings and a matching statement ‘Legends of Africa’ cuff bracelet. Glamour and a message.
