2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

The Critics Choice Awards are coming up and I cannot wait to see what they will bring. I was excited by the Golden Globes and aside from one star in jammies and a couple of the guys in hoodies everyone put in the effort. I want to see that effort continue all through awards season. The outlook of the world is getting better and better every day and I want to see everyone who is nominated for and attend the Critics Choice Awards put forward maximum effort. In addition to her Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series nomination for her role in Emily in Paris Ashley Park will also be a presenter at this years Critics Choice Awards. I hope that she will show up to the studio in person for her presenter duties before she heads back to a hotel room to Zoom into the show for her category. Though they might not even announce this category live. So I really want her to show up and give a BOLD glamour moment. I think that this red chiffon Zuhair Murad Spring 2021 RTW sleeveless gown which features intricate feather inspired beaded embroidery, a plunging neckline, an a-line skirt, and a thigh high split is exactly what I want to see Ashley bring to light on the red carpet. I don’t know much about her style, but I feel like since she is working with major power stylist Erin Walsh that anything is possible. I would love to see Ashley take this super glam gown and boost it up with old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, defined eyes, rose pink glossy lips, a red satin Judith Leiber Couture ‘Soho’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of red suede Stuart Weitzman ‘Ellsie 100’ strappy sandals, and a selection of Forevermark jewels including white diamond ‘Black Label’ chandelier earrings and a white diamond ‘Exceptional’ double halo set pear shaped cocktail ring. I had picked this powder blue one shoulder Tony Ward Spring 2021 RTW draped jumpsuit with a big bow detail and a train before I saw Gillian Anderson rock Dior Couture for the Golden Globes. I was impressed that I actually feel in loved with Gillian’s Dior moment, and that was a huge shock for me. After that moment this jumpsuit seems beneath her, but with their new PR guy I know that Tony Ward is looking to rebrand as a serious red carpet contender. I feel like it would be a super chic moment for Gillian and one that is out of her usual scope. It is chic and glamorous, but with a twist. This jumpsuit wouldn’t be right for a nominee to wear for most awards season red carpets, but the more laid back vibe of the Critics Choice would make this a great moment for Gillian. I would make it a major glamour moment with a loose updo, defined eyes, pink lips, silver Casadei crystal detailed slingback pointed toe pumps, and a pair of dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 white diamond heart detail drop earrings. Issa Rae knows how to deliver bold color moments and I would love to see her give another for the Critics Choice Awards where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series for her show Insecure. I found that color moment in this canary yellow silk faille Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 sleeveless trumpet gown which features a plunging neckline, big bow detail on the back, and a sweeping train. I’ve loved this gown since the moment I first saw the lookbook and I believe that Issa would easily make it a MAJOR fashion moment for the Critics Choice Awards. A sleek chignon updo, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of gold Le Silla ‘Gwen 120’ mirrored effect ankle strap platform sandals, and a statement vintage white and yellow diamond pendant drop necklace would all make this look come together beautifully. As it is the middle of the night in London when the award shows go live it didn’t surprise me that Olivia Colman opted for more of a comfortable Armani Prive suit for the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. She’s never struck me as a big fashion girl and would much rather be comfortable than glamorous. While it will be a very similar situation this weekend for the Critics Choice Awards where Olivia is nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for The Crown and Best Supporting Actress in a Movie for The Father I still turned to a gown. I thought this simple white crepe Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2021 ‘Ursula’ column gown with an asymmetrically draped short cape and silver sheer crystal embellished sleeves would be a very chic moment for Olivia to wear for the Critics Choice Awards. Now in lockdown I think that Olivia will wear it with her signature short pixie, defined eyes, soft pink lips, and a pair of hotel slippers; but had there been an actual red carpet I would have added a white satin Tyler Ellis ‘Piper’ silver hardware detailed clutch, a pair of white leather Jimmy Choo ‘Romy 85’ crystal trimmed pointed toe pumps, and a bit of dazzling sparkle via vintage white diamond chandelier earrings from Jewellery Discovery. Riz Ahmed skipped out on the Golden Globes, and when you are in the same category as Chadwick Boseman you have to know that the likelihood that you are going to win is slim. That being said I missed seeing what look he would bring to the “red carpet.” I would love to see him Zoom into this weekends Critics Choice Awards wearing this black Givenchy Pre-Fall 2019 tuxedo with a silver zipper detailed “button down” shirt. It is classic with a very subtle edgy twist with that I think would be perfectly in line with Riz’s style. A sleek pair of black box leather Givenchy ‘Austin’ chelsea boots with metal tips and an Omega ‘Speedmaster Skywalker X-33’ watch would add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble.

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 5

Today is mostly about the cast of The Crown, but also for Emily In Paris. It’s a day all about shows set in Europe that have casts dedicated to high fashion. I am really hoping that we see more broadcast events at the Golden Globe Awards like we saw with the cast of Schitt’s Creek do at the 2020 Emmy Awards. The cast of The Crown would be one of the best to do so. Let’s get into all of today’s wishes shall we?Emma Corrin is my favorite to take home the Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama trophy. I was enamored by her portrayal of Princess Diana in the fourth season of the anthology series. I am actually very disappointed that will be all she will get as she is being replaced (as is the whole cast) in the shows final two seasons. So I want her, and her stylist Harry Lambert, to have some major fun with fashion during this awards season. As I was looking at the Valentino Pre-Fall 2021 collection and I saw this black silk slip style gown which features thin straps, an open back and a sequined neckline and immediately knew I had found my Globes gown for Emma. Now the more simplistic of this gown might lend itself to more of the Critics Choice or SAG Awards, but I feel like should Emma customize this gown to have a long train behind it to add drama. It would be a very sexy yet sophisticated moment for the young actress to bring to life for her first Golden Globe Awards. I would keep the styling of this look very modern yet glamorous with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black Jeffrey Levinson ‘Elina Plus’ liquid glitter clutch, a pair of black crystal embellished Valentino ‘Rockstud’ sandals, and a selection of MAJOR Repossi jewels including miss-matched earcuffs one ‘SSV’ 3 row white diamond earcuff and one ‘Luminant’ white diamond and emerald earcuff as well as a ‘Serti Sur Vide’ 2 row white diamond ring, and a ‘Brevis’ 2 pear diamond open ring to really make this a major fashion moment for Emma. Previous Golden Globe Award winner Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has earned her her sixth nomination. When it comes to fashion Gillian is always one to deliver glamour on the red carpet. I went through several ideas of what I thought I wanted to see from Gillian on this red carpet, but it was ultimately a deep azurite blue Safiyaa Fall 2020 RTW column gown which features an asymmetrical bodice and a crystal embellished cape detail that I thought would be the perfect moment. It is the perfect meshing of classic and modern glamour. It is absolute glamour and I know that with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a dark blue crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture faceted rectangle clutch, navy glitter Aquazzura gem embellished pointed toe mules, and statement white diamond Dena Kemp leaf drop earrings it would be head to toe perfection. Josh O’Connor is one of the men this awards season I am interested in seeing bring a new and interesting moment to life on the red carpets of awards season. I feel like the title of Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama is Josh’s to loose and to accept the Globe I would love to see him serve a LOOK. The moment I saw this black Fendi Spring 2021 Couture asymmetrical buttoned up tuxedo with a ring detail on the jacket, cutout details on the cuffs of the sleeves, a white fishnet lace cuff detail, and trousers with a side split I saw it on Josh. It is a fun and fashiony take on the classic tuxedo and I know that Josh has the presence and carriage to bring this look to life. The details in this look are special enough that I wouldn’t add much to it except for a pair of black leather Fendi square toe chelsea boots. Olivia Colman has worn Stella McCartney and Emilia Wickstead on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet the last two years. While I did like the Stella gown well enough the Wickstead last year was horrendous. I know she has some major potential and I want to see her live up to it. As I planned these wishes I thought a lot about re-wearing and to be honest there aren’t many looks that Olivia ha worn that I would actually like to see her bring back to the red carpet. But there was a red Antonio Berardi cap sleeve asymmetric column gown with a small train that Olivia wore for the 2018 Venice Film Festival award ceremony (pictured left) that I could see her bringing back out. Now I still would love to see Olivia bring a glamorous and new moment to the red carpet for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards and so I turned to this midnight blue Alexander McQueen cape detailed chiffon gown with a fitted waist, jewel neck, and an a-line skirt. It is glamorous and dramatic all on it’s own, but I would love to see the team at McQueen modify this dress to have a train to add even more drama. I would finish the look with a chic pixie, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, a navy velvet Jimmy Choo ‘Ellipse’ crystal trimmed clutch, a pair of black suede Alexander McQueen flower detailed peep toe d’orsay platform pumps, and a DAZZLING vintage 1950’s art deco scroll white diamond necklace to really make this look head to toe perfection.I think that the whole world was shocked that Lily Collins earned a Golden Globe Award nomination thanks to her performance in Emily in Paris. She has been serving up some superb looks while in lockdown and I really want to see her bring a BOLD glamour look for the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. So of course couture had to be my choice. I picked this bold neon yellow strapless ballgown from the Ashi Studio Spring 2021 Couture collection. On first glance this ballgown is all about the color and is a very simplistic look, but from behind it is a bow strap detailed open back. Now it is a big dress and could overwhelm Lily’s petite figure, but I believe that with the right tailoring and styling it would be perfection. I would style this look with a sleek rosette inspired updo embellished with with a white diamond Harry Winston cluster brooch, defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of silver and gold Casadei ankle strap platform sandals, and a dazzling white marquis cut and yellow diamond cushion cut Harry Winston necklace to really make it a statement making moment for Lily to bring to life for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards.

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

2021 AFI Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

There are so many fabulous casts in the films and television programs that are on the Best of 2020 list which would be honored at the 2021 AFI Awards had we gotten a ‘normal’ red carpet. One of the best casts to see out on the red carpet is from The Crown. So I am really bummed that we won’t get to see them don their brunch best and attend the AFI Awards in person this year. But you know I still have opinions on what I would have wanted to see them wearing on the red carpet so let’s get into today’s wishes shall we?I think I am most disappointed that COVID has stolen all kinds of major red carpet moments from Emma Corrin. I adored her portrayal of Princess Diana in the latest season of The Crown and she is just as much of a fashionista. In the lead up to the latest season of the show dropping on Netflix her stylist Harry Lambert shared a series of photos of looks that the two had put together as options for looks for press and premieres and it included looks from 16Arlington, Christopher Kane, Rejina Pyo, Loewe, and Nensi Dojaka. She ultimately wore custom Miu Miu for the virtual premiere. Now had there been a red carpet for the AFI Awards I would have loved to seen Emma channel Diana’s two different senses of style with this look from the Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 collection. They grey double breasted blazer is more of the structured side of Diana’s style and the horizontal striped silk leggings are on the athleisure side and they shouldn’t work well together, but for some reason it does. Now I would swap the blue striped shirt the look was styled with in the lookbook instead opting for a white cotton sleeveless embroidered button down shirt with a ruffled neckline to add a soft touch of femininity to the very severe look. A soft wavy bob, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a black and white Louis Vuitton ‘Since 1854 Noe’ miniature drawstring bucket bag, black leather Louis Vuitton ‘Heartbreaker’ pumps, and very simple sparkle via 18k rose gold set De Beers ‘Clea Five’ diamond and chain drop earrings would have added the perfect finishing touches to this look. Erin Doherty emerged out of the cast of The Crown as a fashion force we didn’t know we were looking for. She has a super feminine sensibility and has rocked major moments from coveted brands like Valentino and Giambattista Valli for red carpets since bursting onto the scene. If there were an in person AFI Awards this year I would have loved to see Erin show up to celebrate the show wearing this uber feminine pink floral flowing dress from the Giambattista Valli Fall 2020 RTW collection which features long blouson sleeves, a black bow belted waist, and an a-line skirt. This dress balances femininity and bohemian styling and I believe that Erin would wear it incredibly well. I would style this dress with some statement pieces to really make this a major fashion moment. I think that a soft updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of black and white butterfly print Sophia Webster ‘Nicco’ ankle strap satin sandals, and Bulgari ‘Divas Dream’ 18k rose gold set white diamond and colored gemstone drop earrings would make this a statement flirty and feminine moment for Erin to bring to life. If only. Gillian Anderson’s performance in Season 4 of The Crown and the Iron Lady, Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher was PHENOMENAL. It has lead to her receiving a Golden Globe, SAG, and Critics Choice Award nomination so far this awards season. I’ve always been a fan of Gillian’s style so I would love to see her bring some very chic moments to the red carpets. I would have loved to see Gillian show up for this super casual red carpet wearing this electric blue Carolina Herrera Resort 2021 long sleeve pencil dress which features a jewel neckline, a gathered seam waist, and a faux wrap style skirt. It isn’t a boundary pushing look by any means, but sometimes we just need chic and not evolutionary. The AFI Awards red carpet is a place where I am really not opposed to just seeing CHIC and this dress is that. Now I was inspired by the lookbook styling and I would love to style this look with a pair of orange patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Hot Chick’ pointed toe pumps and vintage ‘Gumps’ citrine and white diamond button earrings set in 18k gold from Beladora to add a pop of color against the blue of the dress. A chic round brush blown out side parted bob, defined eyes, and blush pink lips would definitely put the perfect finishing touches to this moment.Helena Bonham Carter doesn’t really do red carpets except for the major ones, so I don’t really believe that she would have actually attended the AFI Awards. But, since we are dreaming today I decided to make sure she is included. I have a love hate relationship with Helena’s style. I love that she is always quirky and true to herself, but on the other hand I don’t necessarily love her sense of style. That being said, I went shopping in the runways and lookbooks to find something amazing for Helena. Now I fell in love with the idea of seeing Helena in Rodarte as I was looking at this bold floral print long sleeve silk-blend devore velvet tea length dress from the brands Fall 2020 RTW collection. We’ve never seen Helena in Rodarte, but I really think that this dress is perfectly in tune with her sense of style. I might go as far as saying that should she actually wear this look on a red carpet that it might be one of her best red carpet looks ever. For the AFI Awards I would dress this more cocktail oriented dress down with Helena’s signature messy updo, thick kohl rimmed eyes, bold red lips, a tumbled grained celadon leather Mark Cross ‘Grace’ small top handle box bag, black velvet Miu Miu crystal studded chunky heel platform sandals, and a pair of Miu Miu rhinestone embellished black and tortoise cat eye sunglasses. Josh O’Connor was a phenomenal Prince Charles. He had the voice and mannerisms down perfectly. Now last awards season he was working some really interesting 70’s inspired looks from Loewe. That alone designates him with a fashion boy distinction. As I was looking at the collections being shown recently I found myself imagining several looks on him so definitely know that I will be featuring him in many of my upcoming event wishes. One look I really loved for him was this Dior Men Fall 2021 ensemble which features a powder blue early 19th century military inspired blazer, dark oil blue silk trousers, and a victorian scene printed trench coat. It isn’t an easy look to pull off and I don’t think I would recommend all the pieces together for anyone other than Josh (though I totally want that coat in my closet). He has the effortlessly quirky sensibility to really make a look like this come to life. And last but certainly not least is The Crown’s very own Queen Elizabeth II Olivia Colman. A couple of years ago I wasn’t all that interested in Olivia’s style, but there have been some bright spots. I think mostly of her red Antonio Berardi at the Venice Film Festival, the custom Prada at the AFI Fest premiere of the Season 3 of The Crown, and her custom Stella McCartney at the Oscars last year. I wouldn’t expect a groundbreaking moment from Olivia at an event like the AFI Awards, but this cornflower blue silk jersey Erdem Resort 2021 dress which features a jewel neckline, blouson sleeves, pearl details at a gathered waist, and a soft a-line skirt would be incredibly chic. It is a very elegant gown that is in all reality a very classic design, but it also feels very modern. I would definitely love to see Olivia bring this chic moment to life with a short pixie style, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a powder blue Valextra ‘Iside’ envelope style clutch, and a pair of navy blue Malone Souliers ‘Maisie 851’ pointed toe mid strap d’Orsay pumps.

The 2021 AFI Awards will be a virtual event with a benediction on February 26, 2021. You can see Part 1 of this series here and Part 2 here.

“The Crown” Season 4 Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

Season 4 of The Crown is about to drop on Netflix. In a normal year this week we would have seen the cast gather in London for a gala premiere for the next season. I am devastated that for most of the casts final turn as their characters, some who will only be in this season, and some who are making their series debut. While this cast might not have the biggest names in red carpet fashion amongst it’s ranks I definitely feel like they had the potential to make for a really great red carpet. The wishes you are going to see below are what I would have loved to see these ladies wear had the event actually taken place. This season will be Olivia Colman’s second and final turn as Queen Elizabeth II. We really started to get to know Olivia early last year as she campaigned for an Oscar. She mostly wore English designers. When it comes to fashion I, unlike most, loved the custom Stella McCartney gown she wore for the Oscars earlier this year. Now what I would have liked to see her wear for this premiere isn’t as dramatic but packing in glamour. I would love to see Olivia wearing this ice blue Erdem Resort 2021 ‘Kenley’ sequin embellished caped gown. I have pictured Olivia wearing this gown since I first flipped through this collection lookbook earlier this year. I feel like it is the simple regal glamour  that works so well for Olivia and this gown delivers that. A short pixie, smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a dusk blue glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ rectangle clutch, a pair of platinum glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Emily 100’ crisscross stiletto peep toe sandals, and simple princess cut white diamond David Morris drop earrings would definitely make this a dazzling glamour moment for Olivia. This season will finally see Princess Diana join the cast. Emma Corrin has been tasked with bringing the iconic royal to life on the screen and I have high expectations. This is the only season that Emma will be a part of The Crown. I would have loved to see what she would bring to life on the red carpet as she is portraying a fashion icon. Instead of going for something off the current runways I instead went into the vintage archives of online vintage retailer Shrimpton Couture. I decided to pick this major black 1961 Norman Hartnell Haute Couture rhinestone detailed bubble hem gown which features an off the shoulder neckline. Hartnell was the couturier to Queen Elizabeth II and this gown is a perfect example of his work. I feel like Emma would definitely been able to bring this gown out of the archives and to life on a red carpet. Style it with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch which features a crystal embellished bow clasp, a pair of black suede Miu Miu jeweled strap chunky heel platform sandals, and vintage art deco white diamond Cartier drop earrings to really make sure this look oozes glamour from head to toe. Gillian Anderson is also joining the cast of The Crown this season as the “iron lady” Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. While she isn’t exactly known for her red carpet looks I tend to think that Gillian can deliver some superb moments. I would have loved to see her bring the color factor to this red carpet wearing this bright yellow Roland Mouret ‘Adrienne’ strapless gown which perfectly meshes structure and draping. As I started planning this set of wishes I knew immediately that I wanted Roland Mouret for Gillian. This gown is the epitome of the Roland Mouret style and I feel that is perfect for this red carpet. I could see Gillian giving this gown the moment it deserves styling it with a teased updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a multi-tone gold crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Smooth Rectangle Bling Mix’ clutch, simple light gold Malone Souliers ‘Miranda 125’ platform ankle strap sandals, and a pair of DAZZLING white and yellow diamond David Morris chandelier earrings. Rounding out this set of wishes is a major glamour moment I would like to see from Erin Doherty. The actress made me take notice of her at last years premiere of Season 3 of The Crown where she was wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Since then we’ve seen her wearing Valentino and Giambattista Valli. We’ve yet to see her wear couture on the red carpet and I was hoping for this this year at the premiere of the shows 4th season. I would have absolutely adored seeing Erin wearing this aqua blue Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture ensemble which features a beaded crop top with 3/4 length sleeves and a ruffled high waisted tulle a-line skirt. It is a bit of 60’s flair in the most modern way possible and I ADORE the color. I feel like it is the perfect balance of fun, flirtatiousness, and glamour for Erin. I would have pulled this look together with a sleek updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, silver glitter and PVC Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Karlie’ crystal studded pointed toe t-strap pumps, and a pair of dazzling white diamond Anabela Chan chandelier earrings.

Season 4 of The Crown will start streaming on Netflix on Sunday November 15, 2020.

2018 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

You guessed it. I have even more wishes for the red carpet at the 2018 Critics Choice Awards, which take place this Thursday January 11. I am really excited to see which stars will stick around after the Golden Globe Awards, and what they will bring to the red carpet. Sometimes the Critics Choice Awards red carpet can be a little more laid back, but I am hoping that with its placement so close to the Globes, that we will see most of the stars who come into town for that stick around. Caitriona Balfe is definitely a fan favorite for her performance in Outlander and it has earned her a Critics Choice nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series. This is a crazy tough category this year, and with the level of glamour that we can see on the red carpet from all the ladies nominated in this category I am praying that they all step out. Cait can be very up and down in her style to me and I am praying that when she steps onto the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards that she is on top form. I think that Caitriona would be nothing but glamour wearing this white Alessandra Rich Spring 2018 RTW one sleeve gown which features a bias draped skirt, sexy side split, and a crystal patch on this red carpet. I think that the glamour of this look would make for one of the best looks that Caitriona has delivered on the red carpet in a long time. I think that she often picks looks that are overly complicated and this gown is the exact opposite of that. Add a sleek vintage inspired updo, a red lip, bold defined eyes, a red Judith Leiber Couture ‘New Rose American Beauty’ crystal minaudiere, silver Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ crustal detail three strap sandals, and a pair of vintage Van Cleef & Arpels ‘Cascade’ diamond earrings to really ensure that this look delivers nothing but glamour on this red carpet. Cush Jumbo was a beloved part of the cast of The Good Wife and I was really excited that she was going to be making the transition to the spin-off The Good Fight. Her performance in The Good Fight has earned her a nomination at the Critics Choice Awards for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Michael Kors has always been a go to designer for Cush. She has worn his designs for the BAFTA Television Awards, the Met Gala, and the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards in the past. I went back to the brand for a really great red carpet moment for Cush. This hot pink Michael Kors sleek halter gown is all about the color, and I know that Cush could really make it come to life on the red carpet. A color this bold is definitely something that stands out (especially following the black gown silent protest at the Globes) and I think that for someone like Cush that this would just come across a real modern glam moment. The gown is honestly bold enough that it wouldn’t need a whole lot of styling. A sleek pixie cut, smokey eyes, a nude lip, pink Aquazzura ‘Knockout’ caged sandals, and statement David Morris ruby, pink sapphire, and diamond chandelier earrings would all ensure that Cush kills her look. Gillian Anderson has a really glam sense of style and I am hoping that she will be on the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards where she is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role in American Gods. I would love to see Gillian deliver bohemian glamour wearing this moss green Schiaparelli Fall 2016 Couture asymmetrical draped gown. We have seen her take this bohemian route several times in the past and I think that with the more relaxed nature of the red carpet at the Critics Choice Awards that it would be a really chic moment for Gillian. Style it with a full hairstyle, bronze smokey eyes, nude lips, a bronze Bottega Veneta ‘Crystal Knot’ framed woven clutch, a pair of fawn colored Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist Goosebump’ nappa leather sandals, and vintage gold set Cartier diamond leaf drop earrings all would ensure the the bohemian glamour of this look continues on. Kathryn Newton doesn’t have an individual nomination this year at the Critics Choice Awards, but she is part of two casts nominated for Best Acting Ensemble. Honestly I don’t know if we will see Kathryn on the Critics Choice red carpet. She wasn’t out during the promo tours and film festivals for either Lady Bird and Three Billboard Outside Ebbing, Missouri, but with those nominations and with the likeliness of Big Little Lies likely to take home the title of Best Limited Series I am hoping she will. It was over last year that we saw Kathryn catch the eyes of big brands like Gucci and Dior. She started the year wearing a lot of Gucci and ended the year wearing a lot of Dior. I decided that for this red carpet that another Dior moment would be great. Out of all of the gowns from this collection I was most expecting this red pleated gown from the Christian Dior Cruise 2018 collection which features crystal embellished straps and a thin leather belt was one that I was sure we would see on a red carpet. So the fact that it is still available for wear is shocking to me. I think that for someone who is just part of nominated casts and doesn’t hold a singular nomination that this is the perfect simple, yet chic statement to make on this red carpet. I think that with a red Christian Dior ‘Diorama’ wallet on chain clutch, romantic updo, smokey eye, nude lips, black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Ada’ gold heeled sandals, and a pair of vintage ruby and diamond Fred Leighton delicate chandelier earrings all would make this look perfection. Mary J. Blige is definitely one to watch on the red carpet this awards season. She has been working with red carpet super stylist Law Roach and they have been making magic together. I love the way that Law has elevated Mary’s style, and I am really excited to see what more they have in store for this awards season. For the Critics Choice Awards I went to this absolutely dazzling white and gold La Perla Spring 2018 RTW fringe gown. This gown screams glamour, with a hint of sex appeal. But the sex appeal of this gown isn’t the standard of what we would expect from La Perla lingerie. This is a stark contrast to the La Perla gown that Mary wore to the 2017 Met Gala, but this is perfect for a Hollywood film awards red carpet. I would go all out with the glamour for this look adding a gold Judith Leiber Couture ‘Speccio’ faceted box clutch, a smokey eye, gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ jeweled three strap sandals, a red lip, glamorous updo, and a pair of emerald and diamond deGrisogono statement earrings.On the heels of the Kevin Spacey allegations House of Cards fired him and promoted Robin Wright to top billing for the shows final season. I think that with her performance in the shows last season earning her a Critic Choice Award nomination for Best Actress in a Drama Series and with her role being elevated that we will most likely see Robin on the red carpets this awards season promoting the show. For this red carpet I want to see Robin rock the red carpet wearing this white and silver striped Diane von Furstenberg sleeveless column gown. This gown is the sleek statement that I think we are now accustomed to seeing Robin bring to the red carpets. I think that since this category is really tough, and Robin is a dark horse, that this is a perfect, simple modern glam moment for her to bring to life on this red carpet. Add a white and silver Edie Parker ‘Wolf’ acrylic shard clutch, a sleek hairstyle, kohl rimmed eyes, red lip, silver Aquazzura ‘Casa Blanca’ lamb leather buckled ankle cuff sandals, and a pair of diamond and sapphire Chopard Red Carpet Collection drop earrings to ensure this look is perfection, head to toe. This last season Tyra Banks took over the hosting duties for America’s Got Talent from Nick Cannon and it earned her a nomination for Best Reality Show Host. We should expect that no matter what Tyra wears on this red carpet that it will be a major LEWK. Over the course of she show we saw Tyra wearing a lot of Michael Costello, and the brands off spin STELLO, on the AGT stage, so I went back to the brand to pick to perfect gown for her to rock on this red carpet. Ultimately I picked this grey fully beaded Michael Costello Fall 2017 RTW long sleeve, coat style gown which features a plunging neckline and a sexy center split. I have a distinct memory of seeing this gown come down the runway during New York Fashion Week seeing the model slink down the runway effortlessly despite the weight of the gown and beads flying everywhere. It was a real moment, and I think that if anyone could make this gown come to life on the red carpet it would be Tyra. I would have her finish this look with full curls, a smokey eye, dark red glossy lips, a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Alien’ gold detailed mules, and statement Jacob & Co. earrings made up of yellow & orange sapphires and orange briolette to really finish this as a real major moment.

The 2018 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Thursday January 11, 2018.
