2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

It has been a whirlwind this year seeing how the different major award shows adapted to still go on amidst the global pandemic. There was the hybrid virtual nominees and in person presenters presented from both coast of the United States, the fully remote Critics Choice Awards, and the scaled back yet in person Grammy Awards. Each award show so far has taken their own path with accommodating the public health orders across the country and the world. The Screen Actors Guild has decided not to do any sort of live event, which is totally different. Instead they will be airing a one hour special that will be pre-recoreded. So these wishes are really just thoughts about what I would like to see as I am sure that portions of the show have already been recorded. As we move closer to this weekends event let’s dive into the wishes I have today for looks I would love to see worn for the SAG Awards. Anya Taylor Joy’s performance as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit has earned her both a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award. She has done so turning back to the same label Christian Dior Couture for both shows. It would not surprise me in the least if she will not be the next face of Dior, maybe the Miss Dior fragrance. It would actually shock me if Anya wore anything other than Dior for the SAG Awards special. I’ve loved this white and black sequined silk tulle Christian Dior Fall 2020 Couture spaghetti strap tea length ballgown since I first saw it. It was presented as a miniature collection on doll sized mannequins, but I would love to see the Dior ateliers take this miniature and create the full version for Anya. It is glamorous and sophisticated with a little bit of sex appeal. The vintage inspired nature of this gown blends together the iconic style sensibilities of both Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. To really make this look perfection I would style it with a sleek rose inspired updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Celeste 105’ strappy crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Bulgari jewels including simple white diamond and emerald drop earrings and a delicate white diamond ‘Wings of Rome’ feather inspired necklace. It would be DRAMA and GLAMOUR defined. Cynthia Erivo has shown up for the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, and Grammy Awards this year and has served a MAJOR look at each. For the Globes she wore a neon green Valentino Couture neoprene tea length gowncustom lace and tulle Vera Wang for the Critics Choice Awards, and then a gorgeous silver and gold sequin and bead embellished custom Louis Vuitton gown for the Grammy’s. Each look she’s served could easily be a Best Dressed of the Year contender and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next when she is a presenter at the SAG Awards this weekend. I would love to see Cynthia go for bold dazzle wearing this black and silver Elie Saab Spring 2021 Couture one sleeve sheer ballgown which features a 3D feather inspired feather detail on the neckline and a zebra inspired pattern. I feel like this moment is a major statement moment and Cynthia would definitely be able to sell it to me with ease. Now with this gown I would LOVE to see Cynthia style this gown with her signature bleached buzz cut, thick defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, black Roger Vivier ‘Mini Broche Vivier Buckle’ peep toe platform ankle strap sandals with a chunky clear crystal embellished plexi heel, a Maria Tash ‘Apsara Clicker’ white diamond septum ring, and a selection of MAJOR Djula jewels including a pair of white diamond cluster fan earrings, a single ear with top and side white diamond ear cuffs, and a selection of white diamond rings strewn about all her fingers to really make this another major fashion moment from the powerhouse. Dan Levy has also served up LOOKS this awards season. He’s strayed away from the typical menswear looks wearing canary yellow Valentino Couture wool and sequins for the Globes and victorian military inspired Dior Men for the Critics Choice Awards and each one is a Best Dressed of the Year worthy ensemble. I am expecting him to take home an Actor trophy for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series this weekend and I want to see him do so in high style. I turned back to Valentino picking this very classic cut black Valentino Fall 2021 RTW tuxedo that was styled with a see through sequin mesh turtleneck on the runway. Now I don’t know if Dan is exactly the see through mesh on no undershirt kind of guy, and I am leaning towards no. So I’ve been wondering what I would like to see. Part of me want’s to see Valentino create a custom black liquid sequin top to layer under it or just go with a classic white t-shirt. Both would be cool moments and I am leaning towards the white t-shirt. His black thick rimmed glasses, the runways black leather boots, and a statement vintage white diamond Harry Winston flower brooch would make this a MAJOR menswear moment for Dan to bring to this “red carpet.”Lily Collins is presenting at this years SAG Awards after helping announce this years nominees. It will be the first time Lily is partaking in a SAG Awards ceremony and I want to se her doing so in flirtatious glamour. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the bohemian glam custom Saint Laurent gown that Lily wore for the Golden Globe Awards. I know she has so much more in her. I would love to see her deliver this black and blush pink ombre asymmetrical Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 a-line cocktail length gown with an asymmetrical neck and a bow detail on the hip. It screams feminine glamour and that is what I feel like Lily serves up the best on the red carpet. While for most red carpets in and out of lockdown I don’t prefer gowns that don’t reach the floor I feel like the SAG Awards that a cocktail length gown is appropriate, especially for a presenter. I feel like with a sleek romantic updo, defined eyes, bold lips using Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick Drama Matte in Rose Lancôme, blush pink Alexander McQueen crystal ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Anabela Chan ‘Diamond Supernova’ white diamond, white sapphire, and ivory pearl chandelier earrings would make sure this look is flirty and glamorous from head to toe. Maria Bakalova was one of the new faces among the list of nominees this year and it turns out she is quite the fashionista. She has rocked some major glam moments during awards season so far with a raspberry red crystal embellished tulle Armani Prive ballgown and a black velvet Prada gown with a crystal tassel bow and I cannot wait to see what else lies in store for her over the course of awards season. I feel like custom is in her sights for the SAG Awards. Maybe Gucci or Dior. I wasn’t totally thrilled or inspired with anything that I saw, except for this white Marchesa Spring 2021 RTW orchid purple and grey hand painted floral print ball gown which features a statement crystal embellished halter neckline, open back, a-line skirt, and a sweeping train. I don’t know if Maria would wear Marchesa, but her stylist Jessica Paster would option the brand for other clients so I decided to throw caution to the wind and pick this gorgeous gown for Maria. While Marchesa still has the tainted stain of the Harvey Weinstein scandal on it I think that this moment on Maria would be perfect especially if styled with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, silver crystal embellished Giuseppe Zanotti wrap-around ankle strap sandals, and a pair of sleek and glamorous Graziela Gems ‘Navete’ white diamond wreath hoop earrings.

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 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 12

Well after my quick two day break for Palm Springs Film Festival Awards wishes I am back to tie up all my wishes for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards. This years show will go live from (at least) two locations on both coasts of the United States this weekend and I cannot wait. I won’t lie with these wishes I feel like I’ve set myself up for failure really going for bold glamorous looks for the stars nominated even though they won’t be appearing live at any of the events. Well, today we are going to talk all about presenters who have been asked to appear live and in person at either the Beverly Hilton in LA, where Amy Poehler will be co-hosting from, or the Rainbow Room in New York City, where Tina Fey will be holding down her hosting duties. I will say this the stars who will be presenting live better bring all the glamour to life and make sure that my craving for drama and moments is satiated. Let’s kick things off with Awkwafina. I’ve enjoyed watching her style grow since she burst onto the scene thanks to her role in Crazy Rich Asians. I’ve really enjoyed her recent lockdown glam promo tour for Raya and the Last Dragon where she’s rocked looks from Dior, Versace, Miu Miu, Celine, Chanel, and Moschino in recent weeks. I want to see Awkwafina bring a super glamorous moment to the stage at the Golden Globe Awards picking this rose pink Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture one shoulder pleated chiffon gown with a cape and a flowing a-line silhouette. While I might not be the biggest fan of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior I do love this soft feminine moment and I definitely can imagine it being phenomenal moment on Awkwafina. To make this moment red carpet ready I would love to see her styling this gown with a sleek center parted hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, gold Francesco Russo ‘Hill’ lace up ankle strap sandals, and a pair of yellow gold Buccellati ‘Rete’ chandelier earrings with pearls.I always love seeing Catherine Zeta Jones on the red carpet so when I saw her name announced as a presenter this year I was THRILLED. She knows how to give sophisticated and sexy glamour on the red carpet without looking like she is trying. I was actually in the midst of picking an Elie Saab Couture gown for Cynthia Erivo when the announcement about Catherine came. I immediately dropped that idea in favor of putting Catherine in a gown from the Elie Saab Spring 2021 Couture collection. I saw this one shoulder silver gown with a single cape sleeve, intricate crystal embroidery, and a sheer skirt and it was seared in my mind. As I read Catherine’s name I knew it was the perfect option for her to bring to the stage at this years Golden Globe Awards. Styling this gown with a sleek high bun updo, defined eyes, light rose pink lips, silver glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Max 150’ peep toe ankle strap sandals, and a selection of dazzling Lorraine Schwartz jewels including 60 carats of white diamonds in three stone drop earrings, a white diamond coil ring, and a white diamond halo set three stone ring would make sure this look screams glamour from head to toe. As I said above I was thinking about an Elie Saab Couture gown for Cynthia Erivo to wear as a presenter this weekend at the Golden Globe Awards. I was loving the drama, but when I changed courses and went with Catherine in Saab I needed to go back to the drawing board for Cynthia. Immediately I went to Christopher John Rogers for a dramatic moment. I thought about Cynthia giving us an 80’s inspired glam moment in this fuschia strapless crinkle pleated taffeta strapless gown from the Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW collection with an asymmetric tea length tulip skirt, thigh high split, and a dramatic train and fell in love. This gown is a risk because it is all the things about the 80’s we usually hate, but I feel like if anyone could sell it to me it would be Cynthia. She knows how to take risk and make them work as well as own a really dramatic moment so I just believe this look would be perfect. Now as I was thinking about how to style this gown I kept thinking about styling this gown with turquoise jewelry and I found the perfect suite to compliment it via a white diamond trimmed turquoise Van Cleef & Arpels drop earrings, collar necklace, and bracelet set from the 1970’s. Her signature shaved head, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, and a pair of matching fuschia satin Christian Louboutin strappy platform sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Cynthia. There was a time a couple of years ago where Kyra Sedgewick was turning out looks from brands like Emilio Pucci, Reed Krakoff, Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Armani Prive, L’Wren Scott, and Oscar de la Renta all of whom were it designers of the moment. She is currently staring in the ABC comedy Call Your Mother and is confirmed to be one of the presenters this weekend. I would love to see Kyra give us dazzling glamour Sunday night and I think that this gold sequin Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2021 caped cap sleeve column gown with an open back and a back vent would give us just that. It would be brought together perfectly with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, gold Gianvito Rossi ‘Plexi’ pointed toe pumps, and Sutra ‘Tassel’ collection rose gold set champagne diamond chandelier earrings. Rounding out today is This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson. She has a bold sense of style and I am always rooting for her to succeed, but unfortunately it just hasn’t worked for me yet. With so much pressure for the presenters at this years Golden Globe Awards I really want to see Susan give us a major fashion moment. I went for something I feel like I wouldn’t normally pick for the Globes red carpet when I picked this black and gold sequin chevron Morphew Collection backless disco gown which features a halter neckline, plunging keyhole neckline, and a thigh high split but it just worked for me. This is a one of a kind gown made for vintage retailer Morphew out of vintage sequined fabric from the 1970’s and so it has legs in up-cycled sustainability. Now with the right styling I definitely feel like this edgy and super sexy glam moment would be perfect for Susan to bring to life for the Globes. A sleek high ponytail, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, a black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Lilah 120’ strappy sandals, and statement 18k gold set Fernando Jorge ‘Disco’ white diamond earrings would definitely make this look a major modern disco glam moment.

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 8

Well the Golden Globe Awards are coming up in just 10 days. I am ready. I am ready for fashion and I am ready for glamour. I want to see all the nominees and presenters for this years ceremony give us MAJOR fashion moments despite the fact the show will be partially socially distanced in person and partially remote. At the Emmy Awards which took on a similar format last year. We didn’t get a whole lot of major gown looks. I hope that will be different at the Globes. I want drama, I want sequins, I want glitter, I want tulle, I want couture. Today’s set of wishes feature five phenomenal moments I pray to the fashion gods come to fruition. Shall we get into it?H.E.R. is nominated for Best Original Song thanks to “Fight For You” from Judas and the Black Messiah and I really want to see her bring a major look. Her glamour is all about meshing bohemian, rock and roll, and glamour. For her look for the Golden Globes I went with an 80’s glam inspiration with this black and white Jean Louis Sebaj Spring 2021 RTW gown which features a dramatic shawl lapel inspired asymmetrical neckline, a single long sleeve, wrap style skirt, and a thigh high split for her to bring to life for her first Golden Globe Awards red carpet. I saw this gown and thought it was super sexy yet still modest and all glamour. To make this a perfect moment I would finish the look with a sleek hairstyle with curled laid edges, defined eyes behind silver round Linda Farrow ‘Carousel C2’ sunglasses (a signature of hers), bold red lips, a pair of black leather Christian Louboutin ‘Round Chic Alta 120’ peep toe scalloped half d’orsay platform ankle strap pumps, and a wide selection of major Butani jewels including white diamond and emerald drop earrings, a sleek statement white diamond wave collar necklace, and a selection of rings including pear shaped emerald circled band trimmed in white diamonds, two white diamond and emerald flower rings, and a four row white diamond cocktail ring. Kaley Cuoco would have made her first Golden Globe Awards red carpet since the end of The Big Bang Theory. It’s crazy to me that the comedienne is just now earning her first Globe nomination thanks to her new HBO Max comedy The Flight Attendant. I would love to see the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy nominee give us frothy glamour wearing this gold and ivory silk tulle strapless Vera Wang Fall 2009 Bridal collection strapless ballgown which features flower applique detail and floral crystal embellishment details. She has long had a relationship with Vera Wang and I feel like it is a perfect pairing. I think that pulling this gown out of the archives and giving it a red carpet moment finally with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, blush pink lips, a pair of gold leather Stuart Weitzman ‘Ellsie’ strappy sandals, and Brumani ‘Looping Shine’ collection champagne quartz and white diamond four stone drop earrings to make it feminine glamour defined from head to toe. Maria Bakalova is probably the most surprising, yet not surprising star to be nominated for a Golden Globe this year. She had a breakout role in Borat Subsequent Moviefilm and has landed herself a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. We haven’t yet seen her on an actual red carpet but she has been embraced by labels like Dior, Miu Miu, Giambattista Valli, and The Vampire’s Wife for promoting the film while still in lockdown. For the Golden Globe Awards I would love to see Maria bring this candy pink, blue, and yellow Christian Dior Spring 2019 Couture pleated gown which features of a strapless neckline, bow detail on the waist, and a short train. It is a dazzling and glamorous moment and I believe it would be a fabulous moment for Maria to bring to life on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. I think that this is one of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s better creations and would be such a  glamorous choice. Style it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of dark blue Aquazzura ‘Tequila 105’ crystal studded ankle strap strappy sandals, and a simple multi-cut white diamond Tiffany & Co. reverie necklace and it would be that incredibly glamorous moment. The red custom old Hollywood inspired Atelier Versace gown that Nicole Kidman wore to the 2020 Golden Globe Awards was one of my favorite looks of last year. She always brings glamour and I would expect nothing else this year where she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for her performance in The Undoing. I LOVED this limited series and I would love to see Nicole serve a moment as she is one of the top 3 I would say in the category with Anya Taylor Joy and Cate Blanchett. I would love to see her give us sleek elegance wearing this white Fendi Spring 2021 Couture gown which features a jewel neckline, defined shoulders, wide long sleeves, and 3D flower details that filter up from the hem. This gown needs someone with tall statuesque regal presence and we know that Nicole has it. I feel like with a sleek updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a white Tyler Ellis ‘Lily’ white satin clutch, a pair of white mesh & leather Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ pointed toe pumps, and vintage 20th century white diamond and pearl drop earrings from Fred Leighton it would just ooze sleek sophisticated glamour. Finishing out today is Viola Davis whose performance in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom has earned her a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. This is her sixth Golden Globe nomination and I am always excited to see what she will bring to this red carpet. Over the years she’s worn Zac Posen, Emilio Pucci, Donna Karan Atelier, Marchesa, and Michael Kors for the Globes over the years and I am hoping she brings something major. I knew almost immediately that I wanted to pick this ice blue silk chiffon Elie Saab Spring 2021 ruched detail one shoulder gown which features a knot detail on the shoulder and a draped sash detail on the back of the waist. It is a superb moment and I can just imagine it being an absolutely glamorous goddess moment for Viola to wear for the Golden Globe Awards. I want to make this a shining star moment having Viola style this gown with an afro puff updo, defined eyes, deep glossy red lips, a silver metallic snakeskin leather Judith Leiber Couture ‘Soho’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of chandelier crystal trimmed Aquazzura ‘Temptation 105’ peep toe slingback pumps, and dazzling white diamond David Morris feather style chandelier earrings.

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 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 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.

Inauguration of President Joe Biden & Vice President Kamala Harris Red Carpet Wish List

I’ve been on a break from writing for a while. It was a very busy and emotional holiday season and start to the new year. It has actually made me very grateful that awards season was postponed this year due to COVID-19. With all that being said, I am very excited to be back writing again and what better event to kick things back off with than the Inauguration of President Joe Biden. I am a huge political nerd and so of course I’ve been paying very close attention to what has been happening in the United States. I’ve been wondering what Inauguration Day is going to look like since last summer. We have learned that there a public ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, January 20, 2021, on the West Front of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C.  Festivities will be limited to prevent the spread of  COVID-19. The live audience will be limited to members of the 117th United States Congress and, for each, one guest of their choosing. Public health measures such as mandatory face coverings, testing, temperature checks, and social distancing will be used to protect participants of the ceremony. So the looks below are for those members who are invited, plus Michelle Obama who may attend as the wife of a former President should any of them attend. Just like for what the events of the inauguration I have been thinking a lot about what our future First Lady Dr. Jill Biden would wear. I’ve said that I believe that Dr. Biden is secretly a fashion girl. Over the course of the campaign we saw Dr. Biden wear looks from brands like Dolce & Gabbana (which I never want to see her wear again) and Oscar de la Renta. I would love to see her wear an ensemble from a label Michelle Obama made famous, Jason Wu, with a deep peacock blue quilted silk coat from the Jason Wu Collection Fall 2020 RTW show and a blue and ivory silk chiffon floral long sleeve midi dress. The coat will most definitely keep Dr. Biden warm in the balmy 43° weather expected in Washington on Inauguration Day. The dress on the other hand is not something I see as warm whatsoever. But sometimes I do go with something that is fashion over function. Both of these items would in fact be wonderful additions to Dr. Biden’s wardrobe. Styling this look with her signature flared waves, defined eyes, a soft grey-ish blue silk mask, grey Malone Souliers ‘Maureen’ strappy pointed toe pumps, a pair of Barney’s Originals real leather gloves in light grey, and a bit of sparkle via Swarovski ‘Vintage Drop’ clear and dark teal crystal teardrop earrings would definitely make this an absolutely phenomenal moment for Dr. Biden to kick off her tenure as First Lady of the United States. I will be so excited to watch Kamala Harris take the oath of office to be the first female Vice President of the United States. Now while I really want to see Kamala bring some superb fashion moments to the political arena over the course of her tenure as Vice President, but I also know that isn’t going to be the case most likely. She loves herself a pantsuit and they don’t often fit very well. When I was thinking of the perfect designer to dress her for the occasion of the inauguration really the only designer who came to mind was Joseph Altuzarra. He is known for his sharp tailoring and so I went shopping on the runways. I found an amazing grey speckled wool trench coat and a grey wool double breasted pantsuit with a batteau neckline from the Altuzarra Fall 2020 RTW collection which I feel would be phenomenal on Kamala. This suit isn’t exactly anything we expect to see from Kamala, but I do believe that the fit and neckline would be incredibly flattering and strong. Now while personally I would have her go bare chested as the suit as presented on the runway that isn’t really Kamala’s sensibility, so I would style the look with a dark heather grey turtleneck sweater to keep her warm and protect her modesty. Now the rest of the styling to really make this look super sharp would include her signature waves, defined eyes, berry lips under a grey silk mask, a pair of grey snake effect Le Silla ‘Sharon’ ankle strap pumps, and her signature gold rope trimmed pearl button earrings.Regular readers will know I LOVE a Michelle Obama sighting. I don’t think we’ve had such an iconic fashion first lady since Jackie Kennedy (though Nancy Reagan’s formal looks were pretty phenomenal) and I have really loved seeing how Michelle’s style has evolved since leaving the White House four years ago. Should we see her on the inaugural platform for the swearing in of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris I would love to see her give us a LOOK which is why I turned to one of my favorite New York based labels, Proenza Schouler. I went through lots of options from all of the typical labels we saw Michelle wear in the White House including Prabal Gurung, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs, but I really fell in love with this major grey peppered wool asymmetrical double breasted coat from the label’s Pre-Fall 2020 collection. I love the contrasting statement lapel and cuffs and I definitely could see MObama being drawn to it. Now underneath it I would love to see her wear this black Proenza Schouler asymmetric spiral button detailed long sleeve matte crepe dress from the retail collection inspired by the Proenza Schouler Fall 2020 RTW collection. It would make for a really super chic fashion moment for Michelle. A sleek side parted hairstyle, casual smokey eyes, a custom black Proenza Schouler mask detailed with one of the gold buttons on one side (we stan fashion continuity here), a pair of hot black suede Balmain ‘Raven’ thigh high hold heeled boots, and MATEO NY 14k gold small pearl dot hoops would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Last up for the ceremony is Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. While she wasn’t a huge Joe Biden supporter I know she knows that it’s better to work together than fight each other. I definitely feel like she will serve a look should she attend the swearing in ceremony. “You can also thrift and buy second hand online, which helped me get higher quality, longer-lasting things that would normally be out of budget,” Ocasio-Cortez just said to new Congresswoman Cori Bush about how to start shopping for a wardrobe worthy of a US Representative. So instead of going to super high fashion off the runway route for AOC I went to the online sale racks and resale stores to put together a chic look. The look is centered around a navy Cinq a Sept ‘Lorena’ wool blend cape. AOC loves a good cape look and I feel this coat would be something she would work into her regular wardrobe. I found it on the virtual sale rack of Saks Fifth Avenue for $591 (15% off it’s original $695 price) which is steeper than what I feel she would normally go for but a good coat is a staple. For the perfect suit I went to the online re-sale racks of The Real Real and found this incredibly chic vintage Christian Dior navy blue pin striped wool skirt suit which features a cropped double breasted jacket and a pencil skirt which is new with tags and looks like something from the Galliano era of Dior. Best thing about it? This suit was probably $1,000 plus when purchased by its original owner and is available through The Real Real for $385. Again on the slightly more expensive side, but something she could wear to work over and over and over. To style this look I would finish it with a sleek high ponytail, thick defined eyes, bold red lips under a navy silk mask, her signature gold hoops, and a pair of black and navy Marc Ellis strappy ankle cuff pointed toe d’Orsay pumps. It would be the epitome of chic glamour.Lady Gaga will perform the National Anthem at the Inauguration Ceremony. Now I do not know if she will be there in person on the capitol steps or if her appearance will be virtual. Either way I would love to see her serve up a very chic and sophisticated moment by digging into the Brandon Maxwell runway archives. As I was going through Brandon’s past runways I was shocked by how many great moments still sit unworn including this ivory intricately pebble beaded print caped dress from the Brandon Maxwell Spring 2018 RTW collection. The intricacy of the beading in this ensemble is phenomenal and I feel like it would be a beautiful moment for Gaga to bring to the Inaugural platform. Now should she be there in person she would need to keep warm so I would style the look with white Italian leather opera length gloves from Ines Gloves to add some warmth to this look. A sleek side parted bouffant inspired updo, thick defined eyes, a crystal and pearl embellished Rinaldy Yunardi “Masker” couture mask (worn over a protective cloth mask), a pair of white glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Kate’ pointed toe pumps would make this look come together in a manner that meshes perfectly the sophistication of Washington and the extra of Gaga.  In addition to Gaga the incomparable Jennifer Lopez is also been tapped to perform at the Inaugural Ceremony. Her performance has been billed only as a “musical performance.” With the theme of the Inauguration being “America United” I would love to see Jennifer perform “This Land Is Your Land” or “America The Beautiful” in both English and Spanish and do so while serving a LOOK. I first started going down the suit route for Jennifer, but when I was looking at Elie Saab’s collections for a suiting possibility I saw this electric blue sequin one sleeve pleated gown with a scarf tie neck, a defined waste, and an a-line skirt and fell in love with the idea of it on Jennifer. It would definitely be a very major moment and one that would add a lot of dazzle to the inauguration platform. Now while I would like to see Jennifer perform in the gown alone, I know that keeping her warm while out on the platform is important. So I found this major blue, black, and white geometric print mink Frame fur coat and thought it would definitely be right up JLo’s ally. I would love to see her make this look come to life with a chic soft wavy high ponytail, defined eyes, red lips, electric blue satin Casadei crystal strap pointed toe pumps, a selection of David Morris jewels inducing oval cabochon sapphire, faceted rock crystal, and brilliant-cut white diamond ‘Twilight’ drop earrings and a ‘Twilight Crossover’ fluted rock crystal and brilliant-cut white diamond cocktail ring, and a black crystal embellished face mask.

The Inauguration of Joe Biden & Kamala Harris will take place on Wednesday January 20, 2021.

2020 E! People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

Tonight is the night! I am really excited to see what everyone is going to bring. There was still a fantastic list of stars who are nominated, presenting, and performing tonight. So I decided to finish up my wishes with a round-up of everyone left. While I enjoy detailing out my thought process in picking my wishes there just wasn’t enough time to write about everyone. There are definitely some absolutely major fashion moments I want to see on this red carpet tonight out of these wishes. While I know we can expect to see Alison Brie, Armie Hammer, Christina Hendricks, and Justin Beiber tonight I don’t know who else we can expect to see that I’ve featured in this list. But as I’ve said multiple times this year it’s better to dream in glamour than drown in the fear of what is going on in the world.

The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will take place TONIGHT November 15, 2020 and you can see all of my wishes for this years red carpet here.

2020 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List

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