2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

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

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

2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

“We’re looking at trying to do a unique award ceremony in an hour and leave people saying, which they very rarely do [with an awards show], ‘Man, I wish we had more,'” SAG Awards co-executive producer Todd Milliner told Variety about this years ceremony. That has me very intrigued. After taking a lot of time to find my inspiration to write wishes for this years event I’ve finally found it. While I am disappointed that this years show isn’t going to be live I am still excited to see what fashion the stars will bring to this show. Another of the producers for the show Kathy Connell said “We hope they [the nominees] respect the show enough and everybody does, and their fellow actors, that they don’t want to disappoint the audience at home by letting any surprises go.” So far this is true and it seems like even stylists are holding images of looks to release them when the red carpet would usually take place. For the Golden Globes Carey Mulligan rocked a draped white Prada column gown. I wasn’t thrilled with the fit of the gown and the look was lacking great hair and makeup. She kept a similar beauty look with a white satin suit for the Critics Choice Awards. It seems like white has been her color of choice this awards season so with that in mind for the SAG Awards I would love to see Carey bring something incredibly chic from head to toe to life. I found the perfect look for Carey in this vintage Chanel Couture ensemble which is a white short sleeve lace blouse, a black banded waist, and a white sequin diamond pattern embroidered a-line tea length organza skirt from the brands Spring 2001 Couture collection. I have been loving vintage Chanel in lieu of many of Virginie Viard’s collections and I believe that Carey would look absolutely phenomenal wearing this gorgeous gown. With a soft curly romantic updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a pair of white Jimmy Choo ‘Romy 85’ crystal trimmed pointed toe pumps, and antique Victorian white pearl and white diamond silver-upon-blacken gold drop earrings from London based vintage jewelry dealer Jewellery Discovery I know that Carey would have a phenomenal glamour moment on her hands. Kerry Washington hasn’t made any appearances this awards season, but with her Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series nomination at the SAG Awards I am praying that she ends up serving us a look. I looked at a lot of dresses and there wasn’t a whole lot that spoke to me. This black Iris Van Herpen Spring 2021 Couture high low strapless gown with a peplum train, mini underskirt, and intricate sequin embroidery was the gown that really spoke to me. I can’t say that Kerry is someone I would normally think of when looking at an Iris Van Herpen collection, but the moment I saw this dress I couldn’t help but shake the idea of Kerry bringing this gown to life. I’ve loved her looks since she’s worked with Law Roach and the two make magic together. It would be a super cool edgy glam moment and I believe that Kerry would absolutely be able to sell this gown to me. I would add a sleek side parted bob, defined eyes, dark red glossy lips, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Moon Crystal’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a statement emerald and white diamond de Grisogono collar necklace to really make this a statement edgy glam moment for Kerry from head to toe.Leslie Odom Jr. has been showing up in some super cool fashion moments for award shows so far this season. He rocked hot off the runway Valentino Couture for the Golden Globe awards and Celine look from a collection we haven’t seen a lookbook from for the Critics Choice Awards. I am very excited to see what is last few stops along awards season including this weekends SAG Awards. I’ve always thought that Leslie in classic menswear styles with a twist. That is exactly what I found in the Tom Ford Fall 2021 Menswear collection. I adore this black leopard print tuxedo jacket styled with a silk button down shirt and black tuxedo trousers. It is a cool moment and I definitely believe that Leslie would be able to sell this look with ease. I would keep the styling rather simple finishing the look with a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato Flat’ glittered velvet and patent leather oxfords. Nicole Kidman dress in her best custom Louis Vuitton for the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year to partake in the ceremony virtually with her family from their living room in Australia. I am very excited to see what she will wear for this weekends SAG Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series. I had several options for what I would like to see Nicole wearing, but it was this black liquid sequin Giambattista Valli Fall 2021 RTW column gown which features a single sleeve, floral embellishment, and a bow detail on the shoulder that really spoke to me. I feel like it this gown is incredibly sleek and glamorous with a hint of sex appeal and Nicole would easily be able to make this look come to life on the red carpet. With this being a pre-recorded virtual event I know this simpler silhouette would be perfect for Nicole. A soft romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, black crystal embellished mesh Rene Caovilla pointed toe slingback pumps, and a selection of jewels from Fred Leighton including a pair of Georgian pendeloque rose cut white diamond drop earrings, a pink spinel and white diamond cocktail ring, and a 1960’s Colombian emerald and white diamond cocktail ring would all tie this look up together in one glamorous package. Viola Davis has been loving bold prints lately. She’s rocked Lavie by CK for the Golden Globes, XulyBet for a recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon, and Duro Olowu for the NAACP Image Awards. Each one was statement making and bold. Never a look I would have expected to see from Viola and who knows if they are looks she would have chosen to wear had this been a regular year. I didn’t go the bold pattern for my SAG Awards wishes I really wanted to see Viola wearing this teal chiffon Elie Saab Fall 2021 RTW a-line flowing gown with a sweetheart crystal halter neckline, ruched bodice, and a crystal waist. I saw this gown and knew immediately it was perfect for Viola. It was the first gown I picked for my SAG Awards wishes. It was actually the thought of not putting this wish into the universe that kept me coming back to look at my wishes and persevering to make sure I got them up. To make this a perfect red carpet moment I would love to see Viola style this gown with a teased afro hairstyle, smokey eyes, deep burgundy glossy lips, a silver crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture slim faceted rectangle clutch, a pair of strappy silver Casadei ankle strap platform sandals, and selection of Thelma West jewels including simple white diamond drop earrings and a statement white diamond cushion cut cocktail ring.

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

2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

Check out all these looks I would have loved to see on a red carpet at a regular Critics Choice Awards. The wishes below are a mix of nominees, presenters, and members of productions that are nominated. I am missing all the glamour and drama of awards season, but I am hoping that there are going to be some major fashion moments tonight.

The 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday March 7, 2021. You can find all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

I am still riding a glamour high from Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, but I am definitely moving forward to this weekends Critics Choice Awards. If this past weekend said anything it just proved that stars are ready to get dressed up and have some fun, even if they are still joining the shows virtually. I definitely am keeping that in mind when it comes to picking looks for the nominees for this weekends Critics Choice Awards. While we eventually get a great floor length look via social media we really only see the stars from the waist up. So all these looks are visually beautiful especially from the waist up. I will say I loved Carey Mulligan’s Prada gown at the Globes in the Zoom setting, but in the full length I wasn’t a huge fan of it all. I want Carey to consistently bring major fashion moments this awards season. So for this weekends Critics Choice Awards I turned to Prada, once again. Now I will say that I had already picked this blue and black beaded and fringe Prada high low flapper gown for Carey long before she showed up in Prada this weekend, and I’ve decided to continue to run with it. I thought of pulling this gown after seeing Dua Lipa pull some of the costumes Prada made for The Great Gatsby for one of her music videos. I honestly had never thought about putting the fabulous creations in wishes before. I was kind of hesitant to do it for Carey since she was one of the stars of the film, but then I asked myself why I was and I couldn’t give myself a good answer. This gown wasn’t worn by any of the main cast members and was just worn by an extra in one of the party scenes and I feel like it deserves a major red carpet moment. I think that styling this gown with a loose wavy bob, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of major black trimmed silver glitter Miu Miu t-strap chunky heel sandals, and antique Fred Leighton old mine white diamond tassel pendant earrings would definitely make this a major fashion moment for Carey. Emma Corrin’s winning Golden Globes look was a custom Miu Miu gown inspired by vintage clowns. It was a look that’s for sure. I can’t say I loved it, but I want Emma to give me fashion and glamour for the Critics Choice Awards this weekend. I would love to see Emma, who debuted a much shorter hairstyle, wear this black satin Chanel Pre-Fall 2021 column gown with a dramatic train and a crystal embellished bodice. I would definitely say that this gown is glamour defined and I feel it would be a superb moment for her to bring to life. I would love to see her edge this look up taking her short boyish cut and giving it a punky styling, thick kohl rimmed eyes, glossy nude pink lips, a pair of black Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ strappy crystal heel sandals, and a white diamond DeBeers ‘Radiating Lotus’ white diamond collar necklace.Maria Bakalova had one of my favorite gowns at the Globes wearing a gorgeous raspberry red Armani Prive crystal embellished strapless ballgown. I didn’t really know what to expect and whatever expectations were in my mind were blown away. I actually ended up dropping the Dior Couture tea length gown I originally had picked for Maria for these wishes and went for something that I feel is a little more fashiony with this blush to wine ombre Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 one shoulder tea length dress which features intricate drape details, exposed corset, and an a-line skirt. I love a great McQueen moment and I know her stylist Jessica Paster does too so I could definitely see this being a look that she would put on the rack for Maria. I think that taking this dress and styling it with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of hot pink Manolo Blahnik ‘Selunga’ buckle detailed silk slingback sandals, and dazzling pink sapphire and ruby Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings would definitely give Maria another amazing fashion moment this virtual awards season. My wish for Ma Rainey herself Viola Davis to wear for the Critics Choice Awards is a complete 180 from the custom African print Lavie by Claude Kameni gown she wore for the Globes. I was obsessed with that whole moment and I love that Viola went there. For the Critics Choice Awards I went with the archive fashion route picking this simple yet very glamorous black chiffon Michael Kors Spring 2005 RTW one shoulder gown which features intricate draping on the bodice and an floating a-line skirt. I’ve always loved seeing Viola in Michael Kors on the red carpet and I feel like this gown is definitely something she would be drawn to. I would nod to a black designer in this look choosing to style this gown with Vanleles jewels including a pair of ‘Out of Africa’ rose gold set white diamond and Mozambican responsibly sourced ruby and rubelite fan drop earrings, a yellow gold ‘The Nile’ sculptural pave set white diamond necklace, and an ‘Out of Africa’ rose gold set white diamond and Mozambican responsibly sourced ruby and rubelite cocktail ring to add a pop of color to this look. A natural pulled back tight curl hairstyle, smokey eyes, glossy black cherry red lips, a gold Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ snakeskin embossed clutch, and a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Misty 120’ ankle strap sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this moment. Headed into the nomination this year Zendaya’s performance in Malcolm & Marie was buzzing a lot for different nominations. When the Globe and SAG Awards were announced I hadn’t seen the film yet and I was so mad that neither nominated Zendaya. That being said, I just didn’t love the film. It wasn’t about her performance because it was stellar, but it was a great performance with no substance from the script. It left me wanting more. I will say that even in spite of my feelings I was happy to see the Critics Choice Awards nominate Zendaya. Not only did they nominate her for Best Actress, but they will be honoring her with the #SeeHer Award. So we know that we are going to see Zendaya in some way on Sunday night. I hope that she heads to the studio where the host and presenters will gather to accept the #SeeHer Award and do so in high style. I went full feminine glam picking this flamingo pink chiffon Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture asymmetrically draped gown. I was looking for the perfect look and this was really the only one that spoke to me. I know that she would know exactly how to work this gown to really bring it to life perfectly. Taking this gown and adding a sleek bun updo, defined winged soft smokey eyes, glossy deep taupe lips, a pair of light pink Casadei platform ankle strap sandals, and MAJOR white diamond Yeprem High Jewelry ‘Gravity’ cluster meets fringe drop earrings would definitely make this the absolutely major moment I am craving from Zendaya.

The 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday March 7, 2021. You can find all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

Even though the Golden Globes haven’t happened yet I am moving on to the next red carpet which will be the Critics Choice Awards which is next Sunday. Unlike when I started my Globes wishes we know the format that the 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 26th annual Critics Choice Awards show will be an in-person/virtual hybrid, with this years host Taye Diggs and some of the evening’s presenters filming from a stage in Los Angeles, and nominees appearing remotely from various locations around the world. As I plan these wishes I am filling them with all the stars nominated on both the film and television side, but I may change things up over the course of the week adding presenters and moving some of the nominees to the roundup post like I did earlier today for the Golden Globe Awards. But, let’s kick things off in high style with 5 major looks for nominees shall we?Andra Day is nominated for Best Actress thanks to her performance in The United States vs Billie Holiday. Because of her very bold vintage inspired/rockabilly style I knew that at some point in my wishes for Andra that I wanted to include something vintage. When I saw this navy and black 1950’s Pierre Balmain Haute Couture beaded organza and silk column gown from Morphew with features halter straps, a high low hem, and a very little train I knew it would be a perfect look for the Critics Choice Awards. This red carpet is usually one of the more laid back events and I think that the simplicity of the silhouette is perfect. I have to say I love seeing vintage Pierre Balmain on the red carpet. The DNA of the house of Balmain is so different than the sex pot glam that we know the house to be now and every time someone pulls out vintage Balmain it really makes for great red carpet moments. I think of Penelope Cruz at the 2009 Oscars and Kristin Davis at the 2020 White House Correspondents Dinner as perfect examples. This very 50’s silhouette, styled with a sleek victory rolls updo, saturated blue smokey eyes with sharp winged liner, bold red glossy lips, a black Holt Renfrew fox fur cape stole with rhinestones, a pair of black satin Givenchy ‘Double G 105’ pointed toe strappy pumps, and a selection of high jewelry from Gismondi 1754 including white diamond ‘Ghiaccio’ floral waterfall earrings and a one of a kind white diamond and sapphire cocktail ring would be an absolutely phenomenal moment for Andra to rock for the Critics Choice Awards. Claire Danes earned her 2021 Critics Choice Awards nomination once again thanks to her role as Carrie Matheson in Homeland. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Claire on an awards red carpet for this series and I would absolutely love to see her giving us a super feminine moment wearing this light blue Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 lace ball gown which features a tie shoulder, ‘square’ neckline, defined waist, and an a-line skirt. It is all about the soft feminine glamour with this look and that would need to have that same elegant femininity in the styling. I would finish this look with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of nude Casadei ‘Felina’ strappy ankle strap sandals, and delicate white diamond Cartier ‘Pluie de Cartier’ feather inspired drop earrings to really make it scream feminine glamour from head to toe.So far in my awards wishes this year for Josh O’Connor I’ve picked intriguing looks from Dior Men & Fendi Couture for him to bring to life on this season red carpets. Continuing with my run of interesting choices for Josh I would have the Best Actor in a Drama Series nominee wearing this ivory Givenchy Pre-Fall 2021 tuxedo which features short peak lapels, pin clasp closure, lengthened hem blazer, and a pair of straight leg trousers. It is a cool look and I definitely think that it would be something that Josh would bring to for this red carpet, even if it a virtual one. I would keep the runway styling just leaving the bag at home and hemming the trousers so there is no pooling at the ankle. Julia Garner has done both the big heritage brand thing and the rising star thing. So I would love to see her do the rising star thing for the Critics Choice Awards after the Burberry gown I want to see her bring to life for the Golden Globes. I must be in a blue feeling for Julia because I would adore seeing her wearing this navy pleated chiffon Rhude Fall 2021 RTW halter gown which features major draping. It is modern, yet glamorous and I feel like it would be a really cool girl moment for her to bring to life. A sleek finger wave updo to really play into the modern flapper vibe of this look, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a navy crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture slim rectangle clutch, a pair of navy glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Misty 120’ ankle strap sandals, and white diamond set in platinum Tiffany & Co. multi-cut drop earrings would make this moment glamorous from head to toe. The last look today is for Shira Haas who I’ve done nothing but Chanel looks for all awards season long and I am not changing that idea any time soon. While I am almost always against brand ambassadors and consistently wearing looks from the same designer all the time I feel like Shira is the perfect ambassador for Chanel. She has a look that we don’t often see from the brand, but her edgy youthfulness works for the brand in a way that other Chanel ambassadors don’t. So as I was looking at looks for Shira to wear for the Critics Choice Awards I thought that this black and white liberty floral print halter gown from the Chanel Spring 2021 RTW collection which features a high halter neck with a pussy bow detail, loose fit blouse, fitted waist, and a high low fishtail skirt would be a perfect choice. This look meshes old Hollywood glamour, 70’s disco, and bohemia and meshes them all together perfectly. I feel like Shira would definitely be the perfect person to bring this look from the runway to real life especially if styled with her shaved head, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, black crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ankle strap sandals, and a pair of dazzling Cartier High Jewelry ‘Dioscures’ white diamond chandelier ear cuffs.

The 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday March 7, 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 4

I am hoping that the 2021 Golden Globe Awards will bring some absolutely major glamorous looks over the course of the evening. I hope this event goes better than the Emmy’s did last year. I was bored out of my mind with the show and the looks were lackluster at best save for a few bright spots. Nominees are expected to appear at this years show remotely I just hope that setup is done less like Zoom and more like broadcast from location. It can be done and I am holding out loose hope that it will be so.Andra Day was a surprise nominee this year. It seemed like The United States vs. Billie Holiday was out of the running for awards this year, but Andra has collected a whole host of awards nominations this year. I love Andra’s sense of style and I really want to see her shine this awards season. She has a retro sensibility and I will be highlighting that in all of my awards season wishes starting with the major moment I would love to see her wear for the Golden Globe Awards. The moment I saw this Schiaparelli Spring 2021 Couture ensemble which features a strapless black column gown with a half moon neckline and a sheer paneled waist paired with a dramatic red silk opera coat I immediately thought of Andra. Now it does have a bit of the same vibe as Lady Gaga’s 2019 periwinkle Valentino Couture gown, but I think that the two looks are different enough that I wouldn’t have any issue with Andra wearing this look for the Globes. Now with a sleek curled rockabilly inspired half up half down hairstyle, bold winged eyes and red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Mariacar 120’ fishnet mesh cross strap peep toe platform sandals, and statement David Webb ‘Cross River’ drop hoop earring made of round and oval-cut rubies, brilliant-cut diamonds, 18K gold, and platinum would definitely make this a major moment for Andra’s first Golden Globes red carpet. Schitt’s Creek took the Emmy’s by storm and swept in EVERY category during the show. The cast is one of the few who did it right by hosting a socially distanced viewing gala complete with it’s own red carpet. Annie Murphy showed up to that event in a black Valentino suit with a sheer bodice and some very interesting sneakers. It was cool, but for the Golden Globe Awards where her role in the show has earned her a Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Supporting Role nomination, one she very well most likely win. I want to see her give us bold glamour wearing this black feathered Christian Dior Fall 2019 Couture ball gown which features a dot printed one shoulder bodice, a sheer strapless bustier, and a velvet belted waist. We saw Annie wear Dior last year for the SAG Awards and I think this would be a perfect option for her to wear to win. It’s a favorite gown of mine and I am shocked it hasn’t been worn yet. A sleek updo, soft smokey eyes, deep antique rose pink lips, a pair of black dot detailed mesh Christian Dior ‘J’Adior’ peep toe slingback pumps, and vintage white diamond flower earrings in blackened 18k gold earrings from Beladora would ensure that Annie has her most glamorous red carpet moment ever. Catherine O’Hara was never one I would watch on the red carpet, but her Valentino ensemble at the Emmy’s was phenomenal. I know that it was a RTW look, but it was a phenomenal get. With that in mind as I was thinking about what I wanted the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy nominee to wear on this red carpet and I thought well let’s get couture. It isn’t often that the stars of the TV comedy category are offered great moments from top tier designers, but I think that Catherine has that pull right now. I would love to see her snatch up this black velvet Chanel Fall 2019 Couture long sleeve column gown which features a bodice heavily embroidered with white, gold, and silver detail that comes down the shoulders and sleeves and a black velvet bow on the neckline. It is a very chic and classic look with a bold twist via those embellishments and I feel like it is totally in tune with Catherine’s sense of style. It would be the perfect glamour moment with a side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black crystal embellished Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ satin clutch, a pair of black satin Amina Muaddi ‘Ursina 105’ crystal embellished ankle strap d’Orsay pointed toe pumps, Chanel Haute Jewellery ‘Tweed de Chanel’ collection round disc white diamond earrings with teardrops, and a Chanel Haute Jewellery ‘Tweed de Chanel’ collection ‘Tweed Brode’ white diamond cocktail ring. Dan Levy is definitely a fashion guy and isn’t afraid to push boundaries. For the Emmy Awards last year he rocked a grey Thom Brown skirt suit and it was definitely one of the most important fashion moments of the night. He’s been dressed by major fashion houses like Valentino, Prada, and Versace. But for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards where he is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Supporting Role I want him to really give us a fashion moment. Now the image of this look is very dark and it might be difficult to see all the detail of the look, so I implore you to click here and really see what this black Maison Margiela Spring 2021 RTW double breasted suit with a wax painted abstract detailing on the pinstripe wool blazer. The pants have a ripped detail, but I think I would ask Maison Margiela to create a custom pair of pinstripe trousers with the same waxed paint like details. It would take this look from editorial to red carpet. Now is this anything close to the classic satin tuxedos we see on the red carpet usually? Oh hell no, but I love that about this look. It is different and it is cool which is pretty much how I would define Dan. To continue to make this an incredibly cool look for Dan I would style this customized suit with a black collarless button down, a pair of black brush off leather Jimmy Choo ‘Falcon’ silver studded oxfords, a hand carved blue tigers eye Stephen Dweck flower sculpted ring, and a Cartier ‘Santos-Dumont Skeleton’ hand-wound 43.3mm ADLC-coated titanium and black alligator watch.My final wish today is for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy nominee Michelle Pfeiffer. I go back and forth on how I feel about Michelle’s style. I hated the Brunello Cucinelli glittered lurex dress she wore last year, and this year I really want to see her give us superb glamour when she makes her appearance during this years event. I would love to see Michelle dive real deep into the couture archives and pull this beautiful red silk cap sleeve gown which features a v-neck, belted waist, seam defined hips, and a center split which hails from the Yves Saint Laurent Fall 1986 Couture collection. I love vintage YSL couture. It is really all about cut and glamour and there are so many moments I would love to see worn on today’s red carpets. I feel like this sophisticated gown oozes not only glamour, but also sex appeal and I think that is perfect for Michelle. It would ooze sensual glamour from head to toe especially if Michelle styled the gown with old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, nude pink glossy lips, a red crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch, a pair of red patent leather Saint Laurent ‘Venus’ pointed toe pumps with a satin ribbon tied ankle strap, and a bit of sparkle via a white diamond Cartier ‘Reflection de Cartier’ riviere necklace.

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 AFI Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

One of the first events of awards season is typically one of the most casual. The week before the Golden Globe Awards the American Film Institute honors the top films and television programs with a luncheon. There aren’t categories at this event just the honors the programs so the air is very different than many of the other awards events. There isn’t the same pressure to have the winning look. The guests usually bring some superb luncheon fashion moments. Now this year the AFI Awards will have a virtual event, but I am going to continue to dream about what could have been on this red carpet with a couple of wish lists full of major moments for the stars of the programs who will be honored.  Anya Taylor Joy’s performance in The Queen’s Gambit is definitely what made this mini-series make the list of the AFI’s Top TV Programs this year. I always love to see Anya on a red carpet because of her quirky sense of style. When I was thinking what I would love to see Anya bring to life for a luncheon red carpet my mind immediately went to this black layered eyelet lace Loewe Spring 2021 RTW dress with v-neckline, ruffled sleeves, and an a-line skirt immediately popped into my mind. I felt like this would definitely speak to that very quirky side of Anya’s style. The dress isn’t exactly easy to pull off, but I feel like the effortlessness of Anya’s demeanor would easily make this a major moment for her. A sleek side parted knotted bun updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black and floral print Aquazzura ‘Rendez Vous’ gold strap pointed toe mules, and Irene Neuwirth Gemmy Gem Collection one of a kind pair of 18k yellow and white gold chandelier earrings set with beryl, emeralds, pink and green tourmaline, full cut diamonds, and finished with diamond pavé hooks would finish this look perfectly. Bridgerton took the world by storm with its Christmas Day release. Since then it has become the most streamed show Netflix has ever had with a record 82 million households reached around the world. So it comes as no surprise that the show was honored with the title of one of the AFI Top TV Programs of 2020. Nicola Coughlan has definitely come out of this as a true fashion girl. She is working with stylist Aimee Croysdill and giving us looks from major fashion labels like Simone Rocha, Dolce & Gabbana, Alberta Ferretti, Batsheva, and more. So I am really looking forward to the days of in person red carpets again so that we can see all the lewks that Nicola could bring to the red carpet. For this red carpet I went for something soft and feminine for the look I would have loved to see from Nicola with this yellow daisy print Giambattista Valli Resort 2021 RTW long sleeve chiffon dress which features long sleeves, an floating a-line skirt, keyhole neckline detail, and cummerbund style waist. It gives me slight vibes of her Bridgerton  character Penelope Featherington but in a modern way. I feel like I would definitely love seeing this curvy, blond bombshell bringing this feminine moment to dress to life on the red carpet. A soft romantic casual updo, defined eyes, bright pink glossy lips, a yellow by FAR ‘Mini Custard’ croc embossed leather top handle bag, a pair of soft yellow Fendi ‘Colibri’ sheer paneled pointed toe pumps, and simple yellow gold set Norman Silverman white diamond flower stud earrings would definitely have added the perfect finishing touches to this look for Nicola.Bridgerton‘s duchess herself Phoebe Dynevor is becoming a fashion girl herself as well. She was part of the virtual front row for the Christian Dior Couture show and has been embraced by Chanel. So I know that she will be serving looks on the red carpet as soon as red carpets can start again. Had there been a red carpet for the AFI Awards I would have loved to see Phoebe rock this ivory satin Emilia Wickstead Spring 2021 RTW ‘Xena’ navy boat pattern printed sleeveless dress with an a-line silhouette, square neckline, and a mini hemline. It is simple and chic and that is exactly what works perfectly for the AFI Awards red carpet. Creating the perfect red carpet moment with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, nude pink lips, a navy velvet Christian Dior ‘Mini Lady Dior’ cannage quilted top handle bag, navy ombre glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Love 100’ pointed toe pumps, and Mateo New York 14K gold and white diamond huggie earrings with detachable pearl drops would ensure that Phoebe definitely continues to show she is really a fashion girl. Regina King’s feature film directorial debut One Night In Miami is on the list of the AFI Awards Best Films of 2020 and I and couldn’t be more excited about the possibility of another awards season run for her. For this more casual event I would have loved to see Regina give us this super cool Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2021 moment which features a black and white polka dotted short sleeve knitted silk wool cotton shirt and a pair of grey and white pleated zebra printed crepe wide leg trousers with a wide black belted waist. I originally had a dress on this list for Regina, but this cool moment definitely spoke to Regina’s sense of style to me. This is definitely not the usual look we see at the AFI Awards, but I really do think it would have been the perfect look for Regina to bring to life with a bun of braids, defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, black Christian Louboutin ‘Bingirl 130’ platform chunky sandals, and 18k white gold Djula ‘2 Sun’ white diamond detailed hoop earrings. It isn’t often we see couture at the AFI Awards since it is a casual luncheon setting and couture for noon is more reserved for photocalls in Cannes as opposed to luncheons in LA. That being said I felt drawn to freshly presented Chanel Spring 2021 Couture Unorthodox star Shira Haas. She has proved herself to be quite the Chanel girl after wearing several looks from the French luxury house last year including couture for the virtual Emmy Awards. I thought this black and gold tweed ensemble which features a sleeveless double breasted vest with big gold button and boot cut trousers was a very chic moment and I think that it would bring some cool girl couture to the AFI Awards red carpet. Styled with Shira’s buzz cut, soft lined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black patent leather Chanel gold button detailed loafers, and a Repossi ‘Serti Sur Vide’ 18k rose gold & white diamond ear cuff it would just ooze cool girl chic. Finishing out today’s wishes is Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom star Viola Davis. I always love seeing Viola on the red carpet because she has an immense love of color. So thinking about Viola wearing this bold royal purple knit Jason Wu Spring 2021 RTW short sleeve fitted dress with a round neckline. This was was one of the few looks from this collection that I really did love and I feel like it would be a beautiful moment on Viola. The way the knit would hug her curves and the color would look against her skin I just imagine. A full short afro, defined eyes, bold red lips, black oil slick Gianvito Rossi ‘Plexi 105’ patent leather and PVC pointed toe pumps, and a pair of Nakard Marabou ‘Bypass’ sterling silver set Ethiopian opal hoop earrings would make this look come together perfectly for what the AFI Awards red carpet should be.

The 2021 AFI Awards will be a virtual event with a benediction on February 26, 2021.
