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

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

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

2020 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.

10 Best Collections of Spring 2021 – Christopher John Rogers

In the official “Fashion Month” line up Christopher John Rogers swooped in and presented one of my favorite collections of the season. He decided not to show in he well earned perch on the schedule during New York Fashion Week, but it was well worth the wait. He won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award last year and the CFDA Emerging Designer of the Year award this year. I have been captivated with every collection CJR has presented, and this was no different. He LOVES drama and color. That was on display this season for sure. In a Zoom interview with VOGUE Runway’s Janelle Okwodu he said “Part of the reason why the collections have been so well-received is that they’ve been quite visceral in terms of the way they were conceived. [Our team] has been like, ‘This feels exciting, we enjoy this’ instead of investigating why.” I feel like this is what designers really should do. I was just talking with friends about how commercialized many of the biggest houses are. They have a formula that they know sells and even houses like Alexander McQueen who hold avant garde creativity at their core seem to have become redundant. Christopher John Rogers does not. Each season seems like a new experiment in the codes that he has set for his house. Drama, color, femininity, and structure. These are the core of what CJR is all about and this season delivered exactly that in a way we haven’t seen from him yet. He embraced abstract pattern and a myriad of bold primary colors this season. “I was away for four months and couldn’t do anything physical with my hands, so I just bought crayons and color pencils and started scribbling like I was a kid,” Rogers said to VOGUE Runway. “I wasn’t trying to create anything specific; I just wanted to have fun and express myself. It’s about getting back to the way children see the world through very simple shapes. They put energy on the page when they draw, so this was about simplifying and translating that energy into the clothes.”  The colors and patterns elevated basics that I definitely think will sell. The more glamorous and red carpet worthy looks are AMAZING as well. There is a lot of red carpet potential in these looks. So continue to read to find out who I want to see bringing this collection to life out of the lookbook and on the red carpet. Mixing bold floral pattern with a padded tulip hip skirt this thin strap tea length gown is definitely one of the best looks from this collection. It did immediately make me think of a Rosie Assoulin Spring 2017 gown that was worn by Naomie Harris; mostly because of the fluorescent floral pattern and the hips. Now this look is far from easy to pull off. I would love to task the gorgeous Kerry Washington with bringing this look to life on a red carpet. I feel like she has the presence to really make this look work. With a sleek cropped center parted bob, defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, a blush satin Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ pearl flower embellished frame box clutch, a pair of gold Jimmy Choo ‘Tesca 100’ strappy sandals, and glamorous MATEO New York 14k gold and white pearl curve form drop earrings this look would be absolutely MAJOR.

Now while pattern and texture is a hallmark of this collection there were some really good solid colored pieces as well. One of them was this traffic stopping orange strapless gown which features a column front and a draped cape back. Orange is such a bold color to wear anytime of day, but especially for evening. There are only a handful of orange red carpet looks I love, but I can imagine that his is going to be a major red carpet moment when it gets worn. I would love to see Danai Gurira be the person who brings this look out of the lookbook and onto the red carpet. She knows how to handle drama and color and I can just imagine how good this look would be. I would style this look with a major sculpted updo, smokey eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of matching orange Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Neyla’ ankle strap sandals, and a MAJOR exquisite necklace of undulated design, with emeralds, diamonds, and pearls, the central emerald weighing 4.5 carats, while the diamonds 25 carats total, mounted on 18kt yellow gold. Made in Italy, circa 1965 sourced from vintage jewelry dealer Eleuteri.Not all of Christopher John Rogers gowns are all about unapologetic glamour and drama. Sometimes they evoke more a laid back causal vibe, but they always make a statement. Case and point? This camisole slip gown which is sand colored from the front, but explodes into a color-blocked rainbow in the back. Now this gown isn’t something I would expect to see on a major awards season red carpet, but I feel like Gabrielle Union would definitely rock it for a gala fundraiser. I took inspiration from the laid back vibe of the look for the styling. I would love to see Gabrielle rock the red carpet in this gown styled with a big high bun of braids, defined eyes, deep burgundy glossy lips, a pair of black and brown Brother Vellies ‘Midnight Woven Olivia’ chain detail ankle strap pumps, and statement 18K Rose Gold set Fernando Jorge ‘Comet’ waterfall earrings made up of white diamonds and lapis lazuli. ​

I was looking at this sand quilted silk strapless tulip skirt tea length gown I couldn’t get Zendaya out of my head. I would have just gone on with using her as the pick, but the shape is so similar to the Christopher John Rogers gown that she wore for the Emmy’s last month I wanted to branch out. I was obsessed with this look as it was one of the tame-er looks from this collection and I feel like Anya Taylor Joy would take this gown and really deliver it on a red carpet. I feel like in the line up of stars I’ve picked to wear this collection that Anya stands out for sure, but I feel like she has the presence to really make this gown come to life. Style it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, soft pink glossy lips, a pair of light gold crystal embellished Sophia Webster ‘Giovanna’ cross strap slingback sandals, and a statement Bulgari ‘Barocko’ collection white diamond and multicolored precious stone necklace for a pop of color and I know that this could be one of the best Christopher John Rogers red carpet moments ever.Tessa Thompson was wearing Christopher John Rogers before he was cool. Since he hit the mainstream we haven’t seen Tessa rock a look from his collections. I want that to change. I cannot recall Tessa ever giving us a big princess moment on the red carpet, so why not ask her to give it to us wearing this black ballgown with bright neon piping detail all over the bodice. I feel like this look is a very modern take on the ballgown and that is what I think would make it such a cool look for Tessa to rock on the red carpet. I would go left with the styling opting for a half up and down braided hairstyle, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black croc chunky platform Christian Louboutin ‘Foolish’ sandals, and a statement rainbow ombre Pomellato ‘Gourmette Caméléon’ chain choker made of a list of precious and semi precious stones to long to go through. It would definitely be a super cool moment for her to bring to life.

Now I had to put this wish into the universe to finish out this review. The moment I saw this neon color-blocked knit catsuit with bullseye detail on the breast my mind immediately went to Cardi B. I could see her rocking this with a matching fur coat for street style or on its own as a performance ensemble. I know the looks is something she would be drawn to and I would love to see her rock this with custom mismatched orange and yellow Christian Louboutin ‘Round Chick Alta 120’ platform peep toe half d’Orsay ankle strap pumps, long sleek center parted locks, crazy nails done in matching colors, defined smokey eyes, and bold red lips. What do you think about this collection? Who would you like to see bring looks from this collection to life on the red carpet?

Pre-Fall 2020 Round-Up Red Carpet Wish List

There are a lot of brands that don’t release lookbooks of their pre-collections during the season instead waiting for when the collections will start being delivered into stores. So while now we usually see designers releasing their resort collections in May, June, & July there have been a couple of Pre-Fall 2020 collections released around the Resort 2021 collections. So you’ve already seen me review Self Portrait, Erdem, & Alexander McQueen‘s Pre-Fall 2020 collections and give you a couple of wishes in those reviews, but I have more wishes for some of those labels as well as for brands that I didn’t feel the urge to review. So check out the 48 wishes from Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Marni, Miu Miu, Self-Portrait, Rasario, & Roland Mouret. With red carpets still on pause this is a great escape to the fantasy world of fashion.

So now you have seen all these wishes let me ask you. Which ones do you most want to see come true when we start seeing red carpets happen again?

 

2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

Fantasy and fashion go hand and hand. High fashion has a sense of escapism built into it and I am really excited to see what the Met Gala red carpet this year will bring. But since we are now going to have to wait several months for this years gala. I am still going through with all of my wishes I would want to see on this years red carpet if the gala was to take place on the First Monday in May. Each of the five looks in this set of wishes to me speaks to this years theme of “About Time: Fashion & Duration” perfectly, but in a manner that also stays true to each of the designers whom I want to see them wearing. So that really makes me excited to see what this carpet will bring. I knew from the moment I saw this black draped silk organza Nina Ricci Pre-Fall 2020 strapless cocktail dress that it would make for a PERFECT Met Gala gown. The design is definitely one of the new signatures under the leadership of Rushemy Botter & Lisi Herrebrugh, who have been at the helm of the brands for just over a year. I will say that while, like at any house, there was a bit of transition pains from one set of hands a the helm to another that the transition between hands at Nina Ricci over the last two decades has been pretty seamless. Now I don’t expect the brand to have a legion of guests with them if they take the Met Gala red carpet this year, but one strong look would definitely do the brand good. Enter Allison Williams. I feel like the former GIRLS actress is the perfect person to bring the label to life on this red carpet. I could see her wearing a customized floor length gown version of this cocktail dress. When I was thinking about styling this look I was really drawn to another new signature under the current leadership which are these bold oversized structured cloche’s and it made my mind start to wonder. Would they send the hat up the steps? Would Allison be bold enough to rock the hat on the red carpet? As these questions danced around in my head Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast At Tiffany’s popped into my head. Once that was in my mind I knew that I had to do it. Really what style has endured more than Audrey’s LBD’s in that film? So I decided to go full on with it adding the black Nina Ricci structured oversized cloche hat, a sleek bun updo underneath, defined eyes, soft blush pink lips, simple black Aquazzura ‘Purist’ sandals, a pair of white Clyde ‘Moonlight’ lambskin opera length gloves, an jewels from Mikimoto including simple white pearl and diamond stud earrings and a statement ‘Flower Lace’ akoya pearl and white diamond high jewelry necklace. It would definitely make for a superb modern classic statement on the red carpet. Danai Gurira knows how to make a major fashion moment happen on the red carpet. This is evidenced by her ability to effortless deliver an Iris Van Herpen creation on the red carpet. I have loved this white pleated gown with black piping from the Iris Van Herpen Fall 2019 Couture collection since it was first presented last July. This look is really the definition of classic glamour meets modernity and as I was picking looks I think are perfect for the Met Gala red carpet I knew that this gown just has to make it onto the Met Gala red carpet. It fits the theme perfectly. I would imagine that since Iris Van Herpen is featured in this years exhibition that at least one person will wear the label on the red carpet and Danai would definitely be the perfect person to deliver this look. A slick vintage inspired updo, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Jamila’ crystal bow embellished ankle strap sandals, and simple Ara Vartanian rubellite and white diamond drop earrings would definitely ensure this look is Met Gala ready.  Proenza Schouler usually dresses one star on the red carpet at the Met Gala. I was looking at the brands latest collection for inspiration for a custom gown for this years red carpet when I found this grey-ish brown and grey-ish green velvet Proenza Schouler Fall 2020 RTW cut-out ring dress which features long sleeves, a slim fit, ruched design, and a metal neckline detail. This dress turned into a gown could be a really chic moment. I was trying to think of who could bring this gown to life on the red carpet so I started looking at who sat front row at the brands show during New York Fashion Week. When I saw that Issa Rae had a perch at the show it just made sense. Issa knows how deliver chic moments on the red carpet and I believe that she would definitely be able to bring this look to life on the red carpet. I would love to see Issa bring this ensemble together perfectly with a sleek braided bun updo, defined eyed, burgundy lips, a dark silver metallic leather Proenza Schouler ‘ps1’ mini crossbody (the brands signature style) used as a clutch, a pair of champagne silver Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Aurelia’ PVC strap crystal heel mule sandals, and chic Mateo NY 14k goldm enamel, and pearl cascade drop earrings.I LOVE me some Dries Van Noten and I am praying to see his designs on Met Gala red carpet. If I can trust a quick Google search it seems like Dries has only ever dressed Solange Knowles for the 2011 Met Gala. One of the biggest champion of Dries has been Maggie Gyllenhaal who has worn his designs for several events over the years including the Oscars and the Toronto Film Festival. I would love to see Maggie ask Dries to customize this black and teal brocade pencil dress which features voluminous sleeves into a floor length gown. The structure reminds me a bit of classic Cristobal Balenciaga which I think would make for a perfect gown for the Met Gala red carpet especially if styled with a fingerwave updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black satin Roger Vivier crystal buckle platform sandals, and vintage 18k gold and aquamarine Tiffany & Co. sunburst ear clips. The final wish today is for Scarlett Johansson. We saw Scarlett really get back to her best over the course of this awards season. She gave us the perfect old Hollywood glamour moment at the Oscars. Honestly that champagne silk and beaded fringe Oscar de la Renta gown would have been perfect for this years Met Gala red carpet. But instead I have opted to wish for ScarJo to bring a custom silver and black crystal beaded fashion moment to life on the red carpet inspired by the embellishments seen in the Miu Miu Fall 2020 RTW collection. I would love to see her wear an off the shoulder mermaid gown with a dramatic train, maybe some feathers could be added to the train as well to really turn this ensemble into a major classic glam old Hollywood moment for Scarlett to bring to life on the steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Finishing the custom look with a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of silver Miu Miu metallic leather crystal embellished sandals, and dazzling vintage white diamond Cartier High Jewelry drop earrings would definitely make sure Scarlett exudes nothing but glamour.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2020 RTW Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

New York Fashion Week happened later than normal. We got to see some previews of the collections on the SAG Awards, Grammy Awards, and Oscars red carpets. I was honestly really surprised by just how strong the collections shown during New York Fashion Week. These runways make me really excited for the red carpets over the next several months. The glamorous looks that span looks perfect for everything from the sidewalk to the red carpet. We will see many of the looks from these collections on the red carpet and below are just 55 early predictions of who I would love to see bring some of my favorite looks to walk the New York Fashion Week runways to life on the red carpet.

2020 Oscar Parties Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Today I close out my Oscar parties wishes. The only thing that stands between you and my wishes for the actual Oscars ceremony red carpet now are my wishes for the Film Independent Spirit Awards which will be posted tomorrow. We are now less than a week to Oscar night. Unfortunately I will be on a work trip and unable to engage in the red carpet as much as I want to this year, but I am hoping that while I am working a trade show that stars are delivering superb Best Dressed of the Year worthy moments on the red carpet. I haven’t seen any yet this awards season, but I am holding out hope after the BAFTA red carpet last night shunned the “re-wear” and “sustainable” plea from the organization and delivered some of the best red carpet looks of the season. I am praying that this will continue through the week and end with a slew of knockout moments on Oscar night. I have high expectations, but trying to manage them so I can be blown away. Some of the wishes below are exactly that wishful thinking, but some of these (even the more realistic ones) could be a personal best for the ladies walking Oscar night red carpets.

Oscar Night 2020 is Sunday February 9, 2020.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards are coming this weekend! I am so not a huge fan of this accelerated awards season. I want to delve deep into what I want everyone to wear on every red carpet, but I just do not have the time to do that. I am excited to see what the rest of the awards season will bring, but I am also happy that next year things will return to “normal.” So while I don’t have the time to break down each and every look I definitely wanted to bring some superb fashion moments that I want to see brought to life on the SAG Awards red carpet this weekend. Honestly looks worn by Charlize Theron and Rachel Brosnahan (from this set of wishes) to the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month would have been much better suited to the SAG Awards, but the looks I’ve picked for them to bring to life on this red carpet are just as amazing. Honestly favorite from this set of wishes is the pool blue silk faille Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2020 one shoulder bow detail gown I want to see Danai Gurira to wear. Honestly all of these looks bring the “IT” factor to this red carpet. Where these looks could be lost would be in the styling. So ladies, and stylists, please in the immortal words of RuPaul Charles “Don’t Fuck It Up.”

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 19, 2020.

2019 San Diego Comic-Con Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

We are five days in and this is the first list that I can say with confidence I believe that everyone included will be seen at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con. To this point it was up in the air if Marvel Studios would be showcasing their upcoming projects at the convention or if Disney would be holding any major film announcements for the D23 Expo next month. Well it has been confirmed that Marvel will have the stage at Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con later this month so I am really excited to see what projects they bring and who will be on the panels. Before I get to the Marvel movie on today’s wishes I have a couple of other wishes to make first. The Walking Dead is slated to have its final panel at the San Diego Comic-Con. I have to say that I never got into this show, but I have gotten into Danai Gurira who started to build her a-list career thanks to this show. If it wasn’t for her role as Michonne in The Walking Dead we may never have seen her star rise as far as it has. So for the shows final panel in Hall H at the San Diego Comic-Con I want to see Danai bring her fashionista best to the stage which is why I picked this green and white striped Hellessy Resort 2020 ‘Verushka’ cold shoulder column dress which features a high neck, asymmetrical hem, and a navy silk covered belted waist. Hellessy, to me, defines cool girl chic and thus far only some of the coolest girls have really sold looks from the brand to me. I definitely think that Danai is one of the cool girls that could sell the brand to me. Taking this dress and styling it with a sleek short hairstyle, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of metallic green Gucci ‘Crawford’ knotted metallic leather slingback sandals, and Mateo New York 14k gold large pearl dot hoop earrings would definitely ensure that Danai exudes cool girl casual elegance.The second film on this list that is confirmed to have a panel at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con is Top Gun: Maverick. I don’t quite understand why Top Gun is being feted at Comic-Con. There wasn’t a Sci-Fi element to the original film, and I am sure hoping that there isn’t in the sequel. I am hoping that the sequel stays true to the original. I want to believe that. That being said with Louis Vuitton ambassador Jennifer Connelly as part of the cast I do expect that she will bring a fashion moment to the Comic-Con stage. Will she go full fashion and snatch a look off the latest Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020 runway? Most likely, but I feel like most of that show is too dressed up for this event, so instead I went to the virtual racks of LouisVuitton.com and found this graphic animal brushstroke print long sleeved jersey knee length dress which features leather details on the collar, shoulders, and cuff. This chic look is perfect for Jennifer as it is the perfect meshing of Nicholas Ghesquiere’s edgier aesthetic and the casual nature of Comic-Con. Now Jennifer is a Louis Vuitton purist. When she wears a runway look she rarely swaps clunky boots or sneakers for even another pair of Louis Vuitton shoes. So it is likely that if she wore this dress that she ends up wearing the high heeled monogrammed leather lace up combat style boots that the dress was paired with for the online sales purposes. Personally I would swap these boots for a pair of black plain calf leather and brown LV monogram canvas ‘Matchmake’ pointed toe chunky heel pumps finishing the look with a black ‘Everyday’ wide buckled belt on the waist, a sleek center parted hairstyle, defined eyes, and dusty antique rose pink lips.Black Widow is one of the Marvel movies expected to be feted during the superhero movie studio’s panel in Hall H during San Diego Comic-Con. I am really hoping this is the case. I want to see Scarlett Johansson be the center of attention. I want her to really up her game. I want her to remind me why I fell in love with her style all those many years ago. For this panel I decided to stick to black, which is Scarlett’s go to color, but with a look that is definitely a little more detailed than we are used to seeing from her with this black Versace double breasted blazer dress which features slashed details ‘mended’ with gold safety pins and gold buttons. It is that uber sleek and sexy vibe that made me fall in love with Scarlett and the vibe I want to see her bring back to the red carpet. I feel like since she started dating Colin Jost, whom she is now engaged to, she has been slowly getting her red carpet groove back. This look would definitely be back on her vibe. Now I would expect that Scarlett would pair this dress with simple black pointed toe pumps, but personally I would want to see it styled with a pair of black and gold Christian Louboutin ‘Barbarissima’ spike studded ankle strap sandals to keep the extra glam of this look going. Finish the dress with a chic wavy bob, smokey eyes, nude lips, and a selection of Anita Ko mismatched earrings including a diamond paperclip drop earring in one ear and a diamond ear jacket in the other to ensure that ScarJo owns the Comic-Con stage. Rachel Weisz is definitely one of the last people I think of when it comes to who I expect to see at Comic-Con, but given the fact that she is staring in Black Widow alongside Scarlett I do hope to see her make the journey to San Diego to help promote the film. Because I don’t really think of Rachel as a Comic-Con person it was kinda difficult to pick a look for her to wear for the Black Widow panel. Ultimately I decided that going to Proenza Schouler was the way to go, but something from the brands commercial side. I found this vibrant green Proenza Schouler crepe chiffon square neck peasant style midi dress on FarFetch and definitely believe that it could be the chic casual moment that I am hoping we see a lot of at San Diego Comic-Con this year. A pair of simple matching green suede Gianvito Rossi ‘Poppy’ platform sandals, a loose casual updo, soft dewy makeup including rose pink lips, and chic Fernando Jorge ‘Fluid’ collection diamond framed nephrite jade drop earrings would make this look incredibly chic head to toe. Florence Pugh is a relative newcomer to the world of red carpet fashion. Her star is definitely on the rise and has caught the eye of a couple of fashion brands. Black Widow will be the young British talents first major blockbuster film and I am really excited to see how she handles a promo tour for that. For the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the film I would love to see Florence turn to this black and white gingham Miu Miu cap sleeve mini dress. This is one of the brands that has taken notice of Florence and if you want people to get to know you then you go for the big label on the red carpet. This chic and simple look is just enough of a fashion moment for the young starlet to bring to life for a Comic-Con panel without it seeming like she is trying too hard to get noticed. A chic topknot, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of raspberry pink suede and silver glitter Miu Miu rounded toe chunky heel pumps, and a bit more sparkle via David Morris ‘Rose Cut Forever’ white gold and diamond cluster earrings would finish this look to perfection.

The 2019 San Diego Comic-Con will take place from Thursday July 18, 2019 to Sunday July 21, 2019.

2019 San Diego Comic-Con Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

We are getting closer and closer to the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con and I am really excited to see what all of the stars who will make the jaunt to ‘Nerd Mecca’ will rock for their respective panels. DC, Universal Studios, Warner Bros, and Sony Pictures have all announced that they will not be showcasing panels at Hall H to promote their upcoming films at San Diego Comic-Con. That leaves television networks and the possibility of Marvel being in the ranks of what we will see on the stage this year. Riverdale is confirmed to have a panel at this years San Diego Comic-Con and I have to say that I am really excited to see what some of the cast members will bring to the stage this year. Many of them over the last year have really grown in their red carpet footing. The one that has come the farthest has been Camila Mendes and I am really excited to see what she will bring to the stage at Comic-Con. Will it be something super casual like a jeans, t-shirt, and a blazer? A year ago I would have said yes, but also a year ago I wouldn’t have put Camila on one of these wishes. This year I want to see Camila bring this Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2019 ensemble which features a powder blue ruffled peasant style long sleeve blouse and a pair of high waisted flared leg jeans to life for this event. As I have said several times before I want chic, elevated casual moments from everyone at Comic-Con this year and this is definitely exactly what I am looking for. Styling this look with chic waves, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of navy Jimmy Choo ‘Ava’ pointed toe pumps, and BaubleBar ‘Soraida’ pearl ear crawlers would finish it off perfectly. Black Panther 2 is expected to start being talked about soon. Whether that will be at the 2019 San Diego Comic-Con or not is still unclear. Aside from the fact is has been announced that the project is happening we have no other information. The first Black Panther film was announced at Hall H during San Diego Comic-Con back in 2017, but with Disney’s D23 Expo coming next month many experts are expecting that Marvel projects won’t be teased until then. Well given my love for all the cast members of Black Panther I definitely want to see them promoting the upcoming film as much as possible. Chadwick Boseman became a real style heavy hitter as he started the first tour for Black Panther in which he plays the title role. If the film does end up having a panel I want to see Chadwick bring his now signature extra take on menswear to the stage. I would love to see him wearing this white, purple, and black Louis Vuitton Fall 2019 Menswear sequined bomber. It definitely a statement piece and honestly I would allow for it to be the center of focus for the look styling it with a black v-neck t-shirt, fitted black jeans, and a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Urchin’ low-top rubberized black technical fabric sneakers.If my predictions are right then Comic-Con is going to be a very busy time for Danai Gurira. This list is the second of three appearances that I have for Danai in my 2019 Comic-Con wishes. I always get excited when I see her name on a list of guests for any event because I know that whenever she steps onto a red carpet that she will be giving us her all. When some might take an event like Comic-Con and go the easy route of jeans and t-shirts I know that Danai would bring full on fashion to the stage at any panel she is a part of. So for the Black Panther 2 panel at Comic-Con 2019 I decided to go bright, breezy, and feminine with this blue and pink floral print chiffon Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Resort 2020 ruffle-accented high neck dress which features ties at neck, dual slit pockets at side, long sleeves with flared cuffs, and a knee-length. This is a flirty, feminine moment that definitely caught my eye the moment I saw it. I would ditch the heavy suede slouchy boots that the look was paired with on the runway in favor of a pair of magenta suede Aquazzura ‘Forever Marilyn’ tassel detailed pointed toe pumps finishing the look with a chic teased hairstyle, defined eyes, pink lips, and Anita Ko ‘Floating Ruby’ earcrawler earrings to ensure that this look is the perfect definition of elevated casual elegance. Letitia Wright really got her red carpet footing over the course of the promo tour for Black Panther. Since then she has become quite a fashionista, but in her own right and manner. She has delivered a lot of pants looks this year, but my favorite look from her was a sheer Georges Chakra Couture tea length tulle gown that she wore for the NAACP Image Awards earlier this year. I definitely went for something very out there for her to wear on the stage at Hall H during San Diego Comic-Con picking this blue, pink, and green watercolor print Coach 1941 Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve peasant dress with a tiered handkerchief style dress. Now while this dress is definitely a little on the extra side for Comic-Con I definitely thing it would look amazing on Letitia. Coach has been a very friendly brand to the actress after taking her as a guest to last years Met Gala and dressing her for several other red carpets. She has the subdued presence to really take this difficult to wear dress making it her own especially if she paired it with short braids, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of lime green Alexandre Birman ‘Clarita’ ankle tie suede sandals, and Mateo New York 14k gold & diamond ‘Half Moo’ pearl mismatched earrings. I can’t talk about the cast of Black Panther without including a wish for the always gorgeous Lupita Nyong’o. Honestly this cast is one of the most fashionable ensembles out there and Lupita definitely brings her a-game when she is out with this cast. I want to see her deliver a really chic moment for her to deliver the look on the stage for the Black Panther 2 panel at San Diego Comic-Con. I immediately went to Monse for the perfect look for Lupita. I LOVE this black, navy, and camel plaid Monse Resort 2020 asymmetrically draped dress which features chic ruched details and can definitely easily picture it on Lupita. It is a chic casual moment and with a chic casual updo, dark red glossy lips, black leather Paul Andrew buckled sandals, and a pair of Hanut Singh ‘The One’ carved emerald and diamond drop earrings I know that Lupita would definitely help preside over Comic-Con in style.

The 2019 San Diego Comic-Con will take place from Thursday July 18, 2019 to Sunday July 21, 2019.
