2021 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

We are getting closer and closer to this years Grammy Awards and I am still incredibly excited to see what will happen. From the live and in person performers to the nominees who might join the show from home. Now I will say that I’ve learned that in place of various celebrity presenters introducing the categories the Grammy’s are going to be paying tribute to the independent music venues who have been impacted greatly by the pandemic having staff from these venues present the various categories throughout the night. So I really want to see some major fashion moments from the stars who are appearing live performing and the nominees. The eight women in today’s wishes can bring the glam. So let’s get to the wishes shall we?Chloe x Halle have 3 Grammy nominations this year and I would love to see the duo serve us a LOOK for the “red carpet.” The sister duo is always a favorite to see on the red carpet and I really want to see them SHUT IT DOWN for their first ever Grammy nominations. I would love to see them rock some glamorous moments from Christian Siriano this year. I wouldn’t normally go for Siriano since these two can serve up some major moments from some of the top avant garde designers, but as I was on the hunt I saw the gown I want to see Chloe Baily bring to life and I was changed completely. I fell in love with the idea of her wearing this black Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2021 two piece gown with a cross strap bralet and a high waisted tulle ball skirt and I couldn’t shake the idea of her wearing this look even when I was looking at all the new collections coming out of Paris and the recent couture shows. I think that she would be able to sell this sexy, dramatic, and glamorous moment perfectly especially if styled with an avant garde updo of braids, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Illimiboot Strass 100’ crystal embellished mesh peep toe booties, and dazzling white diamond David Morris ‘Cherry Blossom’ round floral cluster earrings. Now for a chic complimentary moment I would absolutely love to see Halle Bailey rock this black silk Christian Siriano Fall 2020 off the shoulder mini dress which features intricate silver star embellishments, chain detail, and long puffy sleeves. I usually pick two looks from the same collection for these sisters, but I feel like this is a better choice. It compliments the big ball gown for Chloe, but in a way that allows for both to stand on their own in addition to standing together beautifully. I would style this dress with a pair of simple black mesh Christian Louboutin ‘Mariacar 120’ crisscross strap peep toe platform pumps, and dazzling white diamond David Morris ‘Illusion’ 5 row feather inspired drop earrings to make this look beautiful for Halle. Together this would be a major fashion moment for the duo to rock Instaglam for the Grammy Awards.Alana Haim, Este Haim, and Danielle Haim AKA just as HAIM are true fashionistas. They have rocked major complimentary moments from Chanel, Dior, Rodarte, Chloe, Stella McCartney, Versace, and Acne Studios on red carpets over the last several years. They love fashion and they aren’t afraid to rock avant garde looks on the red carpet. So when I was thinking about who I want to dress the sister group nominated for two Grammy’s including Album of the Year and who are performing I immediately thought of the cool girl brand of the moment Bottega Veneta by Daniel Lee. I’ve been obsessed with the Bottega Veneta Resort 2021 collection since it was first presented and I know that in a world where there are red carpets that stars would have been all over it. I picked three looks from the collection that work together perfectly to make for the perfect looks for these sisters to rock on the Grammy’s red carpet starting with a black corseted mini dress for Alana Haim, but I would want to see it customized into a floor length column gown. It would be a sleek and sexy yet classic moment and I feel that would be perfect for Alana especially styled with soft center parted waves tucked behind the ears, soft nude smokey eyes, taupe lips, black Bottega Veneta leather mesh gold chain detailed square toe pumps, and a selection of Anita Ko jewels including yellow gold set ‘Maya’ white diamond drop earrings, a yellow gold set baguette cute white diamond coil bracelet, a yellow gold link ‘Zoe’ bracelet, and another ‘Zoe’ bracelet inlaid with white diamonds. Moving to Este, the tallest of the sisters, I though that she would look gorgeous wearing this black silk halter gown which features a bandana scarf detail on the neck. It is sleek and sexy with a nod to the 90’s and the soft shine would make it a super chic fashion moment. A sleek side parted low bun, defined eyes, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of strappy black leather Bottega Veneta square toe ankle strap sandals, and a bit of sparkle via yellow gold set white diamond Anita Ko ‘Rope’ drop earrings would make this a super glamorous moment. Finally for Danielle Haim I added a pop of color to the group with this dusty mauve tiered knotted jersey fringe dress with a halter neckline that I would love to see also lengthened into a custom floor length gown which I would style with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, deep taupe lips, lilac Bottega Veneta ‘BV Curve’ woven leather two strap mule sandals, and a pair of yellow gold set Anita Ko ‘Snowflake’ white diamond cluster earrings. All in all this would make for a MAJOR fashion moment for the HAIM sister. After rocking what I imagine is either rented or purchased Tom Ford for the CMA Awards last fall I decided that I would turn to the brand once again for Best New Artist (and 2 more) Granny nominee Ingrid Andress. I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for her and I would love to see her literally shine bright wearing this silver Tom Ford silver sequin embroidered one shoulder gown with a sexy asymmetric silver chain collar and a side split for the Grammy’s red carpet. This is definitely a moment and I feel it in my soul that Ingrid would definitely be able to sell this moment to me effortlessly. Now I would swap up her CMA’s beauty look keeping those bold defined eyes, but styling the hair in a sleek updo and adding bold matte blood red lips to make the beauty vibe match the vibe of the gown. With a pair of black Tom Ford ‘Disco’ sculpted heel platform sandals and simple white gold Nikos Koulis ‘Universe Line’ geometric drop earrings with white diamonds in translucent enamel this look would scream dazzling glamour from head to toe. Following Ingrid who is a rising country music diva to a long reigning queen of modern country music Miranda Lambert. I can’t say that Miranda is one of my favorite red carpet stars, but when she gets it right she gets it right. I almost loved the Alex Perry look she wore for the CMA awards had there been better hair and makeup. For the Grammy’s where she is nominated for 3 gold gramophones and will be performing I went with a major color moment thanks to this bold emerald green Rasario Fall 2020 RTW draped one shoulder gown with a sexy split and a very small train. I feel like this color moment with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, an emerald green Serpui ‘Mirela’ crystal embellished clutch, a pair of MAJOR emerald green satin Mach & Mach white crystal embellished double bow rope detailed pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a bit of sparkle thanks to white diamond and emerald Kwiat chandelier earrings with three pear shaped drops would make this look perfect.  Poppy is nominated for Best Metal Performance and will be performing at the non televised Grammy Premiere ceremony, so I want to see her serve a look. She has always given very avant garde moments on the red carpet that go from sweet to edgy and I want to see her continue to give a major fashion moment So I turned to this white Giambattista Valli Fall 2020 Couture mini dress which features a dramatic asymmetrical taffeta bow for her. I just feel like Poppy would be the perfect person to bring this look to life. She has has the stature to really make this look come to life. To really make this a perfect red carpet look I would love to see Poppy style it with a sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, crazy high white Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Tarifa’ platform peep toe ankle strap sandals, and a selection of MAJOR Yeprem jewels including a singe total surround white diamond ‘Chevalier’ earcuff and a matching white diamond whole hand ‘Chevalier’ hand piece worn on opposite sides of the body.

The 2021 Grammy Awards, hosted by Trevor Noah, will air live on CBS Sunday March 14, 2021. You can see all of my wishes for this years red carpet here.

2020 E! People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

The 2020 People’s Choice Awards are TOMORROW! I am so excited to see what this event will be. I feel like there are a lot of surprises in store. There aren’t a lot of performers or presenters announced yet. So I don’t know how the show will work. This is a two hour “red carpet” hosted by Giuliana Rancic before so I would imagine there will be a good celebrity attendance. Today my wishes are full of some of the confirmed presenters and performers, as well as Dua Lipa who is nominated for 4 People’s Choice Awards this year. I had only heard of Addison Rae as a Tik Tok personality before she presented at the Billboard Music Awards last month wearing a full Valentino Fall 2020 RTW ensemble. I don’t know anything about her style, but I feel like she will bring some sort of chic look. I was looking at the Fall 2020 RTW collections and when I saw this pale butter yellow Lanvin Fall 2020 RTW skater style mini dress which features a scoop neckline, crystal embellishments on the straps, and an a-line skirt I thought it was the perfect look for Addison. It is chic and flirty moment and I feel it could help continue to push her into the fashion girl territory. Now I feel she rocked the Valentino gloves at the Billboard Awards as a nod to COVID safety precautions so she could definitely rock the ivory ones that the Lanvin dress was styled with on the runway. I personally wouldn’t it could become too kitschy and I don’t think Addison is established enough to fall into a moment in time kitsch. A sleek high ponytail, defined eyes, punchy pink lips, champagne platinum glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Jenique’ criss-cross strap peep toe platform sandals, and a pair of rose quartz and white diamond Brumani ‘Looping Shine’ collection stud earrings would all make this look the epitome of feminine chic. I feel like it’s been a while since we’ve seen Bebe Rexha, but she recently presented at the MTV EMA’s where she debuted some bold crayola red hair and she is going to present at the People’s Choice Awards tomorrow night. I have to say I hate the hair on her. The only person, in my opinion, to make this hair color work was Rihanna back in the early days of LOUD. I want to minimize the color so I went for a look for Bebe that I think fits her aesthetic (even though she doesn’t really have one) picking this black draped stretch satin Alexandre Vauthier dress which features a plunging neckline, open back, scarf draping on the hips, and an asymmetrical hem line. I feel the dress is definitely something that Bebe would be drawn to and I can see her making it a super sensual moment as well. I would pull the look together styling her hair into a chic finger wave updo with a beauty look that includes smokey eyes and lips to match her red hair and accessorizing with a pair of black Alexander McQueen crystal embellished ankle strap sandals and Amwaj ‘Vision in Blue’ white diamond and sapphire modern cross tassel drop earrings. Chloe x Halle are amongst the only performers (along with Justin Beiber) who are currently announced for the People’s Choice Awards. All of their performances at events since the pandemic hit have been studio recorded and played during the live show. I am hoping that we see the R&B superstar sisters take to the stage in person at the PCA’s tomorrow night. I have long been a fan of their style. They know how to rock some major FASHION. I would love to see them rock a new brand I’ve discovered thanks to Vogue Runway called Annakiki whose Spring 2021 RTW was all about taking intergalactic meets streetwear drama. I would love to see Halle wear the black sequined mini dress with pink 3D floral embroidered shoulder and for Chloe to wear the avant garde cropped interpretation of a white button down with high waisted black trousers. The looks are cool and chic which is exactly what the Bailey sisters are all about. I would style Halle’s dress with braids pulled back, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, black asymmetrical grosgrain bow detail Jimmy Choo ‘Aveline 100’ ankle strap sandals, and white diamond Harry Kotlar teardrop cluster drop earrings and Chloe’s trouser looks with a curly top bun, defined eyes, deep antique rose pink lips, bold hot pink Balenciaga ‘Knife’ pointed toe pumps, and white diamond Harry Kotlar ‘Scallop Silhouette’ dangle fringe earrings to really make these superb complimentary red carpet moments. Dua Lipa is the only person on this list who isn’t confirmed to attend the 2020 People’s Choice Awards tomorrow. I have really enjoyed seeing Dua continue to grow in her style choices. I am really hoping that if she steps out tomorrow night I would love to see Dua give us edgy glam wearing this Balenciaga Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features a black sleeveless bodysuit with built in stiletto boots overlaid with a silver chain link mesh floor length tunic. This look is industrial glam defined and I definitely feel like it would be something Dua would be able to bring to life on the red carpet. She has lost the two toned blonde and black 90’s grunge hair coloring that she was sporting at the end of last year into this year and is back to straight black locks. Thank god. I would love to see Dua style this look with a sleek ponytail, statement black and white smokey eyes, bold matte red lips, and a pair of asymmetrical white diamond Messika High Jewelery ‘Equalizer’ zig-zag earrings. Finishing out today’s wish is the gorgeous Jameela Jamil who is nominated and presenting at tomorrow nights awards show. I go back and forth with Jameela and her style. I know she has potential but I don’t like the fit of many of her looks. So I went to one of the brands known for their fit with this emerald green velvet Vivienne Westwood Fall 2020 RTW mini dress which features strong shoulders, sweetheart neckline, corseted waist, long sleeves, and a draped mini length skirt. First I was drawn to the color of this dress for Jameela. It is a little shorter and sexier than we are used to seeing her wear, but I think that if Westwood would lengthen the look to hit mid thigh that this look would be a game changer when it comes to Jameela’s style. I would love to see her banged hair styled in a sleek high ponytail adding defined eyes, bold deep red lips, gold Jimmy Choo ‘Talika’ crystal embellished cross strap pointed toe pumps, and a pair of Amrapali ‘Kimya Fan’ graduated 18k yellow gold and white diamond chandelier earrings. It would definitely be among one of Jameela’s best red carpet looks ever.

The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will take place tomorrow Sunday November 15, 2020.

2020 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

We are getting closer and closer to this years VMA’s. I feel like we still do not know what the show is going to look like and how it will be staged. I am really interested in seeing what the producers are putting together. I am disappointed that we won’t actually get a red carpet, but I am interested in seeing what everyone wears for their performances and to accept their awards. MTV did announce plans for the show to “[span] all five boroughs” to “pay homage to the strength, spirit and incredible resilience of NYC and its beloved residents.” I would be shocked if Alicia Keys, who does come across as an ultimate New Yorker, won’t perform. She is nominated for Best R&B thanks to her song “Underdog” which focuses on rising in situations that may be difficult. I went back to the same idea I had for Keke Palmer and picked a head to toe look for Alicia from black designers starting with an eggplant iridescent velvet Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW double breasted suit which features strong shoulders, slouchy sleeves, and wide leg trousers. I can definitely imagine Alicia sitting at a piano placed in the middle of a street in New York City as the sun sets performing “Underdog” in this suit. It would be made even better with a sleek updo with perfectly beat babyhairs, smokey eyes. glossy nude pink lips, a pair of black Brother Vellies ‘Bowery Palms’ feather detailed sling back strappy sandals, and white diamond Vanleles ‘Bridal Cuff’ marquis and pear shaped wreath earrings.When I head that Chloe x Halle were only given a place to perform in the VMA’s pre-show I was annoyed. First I don’t know how that will work. The pre-show usually takes place on the red carpet as guests arrive. Well there is no red carpet. So why not just call it the show. Second I feel like these sisters have been doing it for a while now and deserve the plunge to the main show. Either way I am excited to see what they and stylist Zerina Akers are going to cook up for the VMA’s. I decided to pick two complimentary looks from the David Koma Fall 2020 RTW collection for these ladies starting with a black slim fit wool single button suit with a white and green crystal embellished harness for Chloe Bailey and a black sequined jersey long sleeve mini dress which features a cutout neckline for Halle Bailey. The two looks are super sexy and glamorous and I feel like these sisters would own their respective moments at the VMA’s. To style the looks I would love to see Chloe with a sleek ponytail of braids, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ crystal embellished mesh paneled pointed toe pumps and Halle with an intricate asymmetrical braid updo, thick defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Open Liloo’ crisscross strap sandals, and a selection of Gismondi 1754 jewels including ‘Prato Fiorito’ white diamond and emerald earcuffs and a statement white diamond and emerald ‘Cascata’ waterfall cocktail ring. The styling would definitely turn these looks into major moments. It was the custom red sequin ‘siren’ emblazoned Moschino gown at the 2019 MTV VMAs that told me that Lizzo was going to be a fashionable force to be reckoned with. I’ve been obsessed with her looks from Atelier Versace, Moschino, Mary Katrantzou, and more! She is nominated for two VMAs this year and I would have loved to see what she would wear for the red carpet this year. I was thinking about looks and I fell in love with this jade green Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2020 Couture gown which gives distinct 60’s palm springs hostess caftan vibes with its ostrich feather trim. It is super glam but definitely not a look that anyone could pull off. I feel like this is such a bold statement and I think that Lizzo has the presence to make it work. I would make this look even more major with a teased bouffant updo, smokey glitter eyes, deep red Pat McGrath glitter lips, a pair of gold trimmed Votette ‘Cindy’ pointed toe PVC pumps, and statement Mateo NY 14k gold and white pearl ‘Blizzard’ mobile drop earrings. Machine Gun Kelly will also be performing at the 2020 VMAs “pre-show” what ever that means. The rapper is definitely known to serve a cool menswear moment and I am praying we see that from him at the 2020 VMA’s. We’ve seen him pull looks from Calvin Klein by Raf Simons, Comme de Garcons, and Saint Laurent but instead of going to one of those top tier labels instead I wanted to see MGK rock a look from Netflix’s Next In Fashion Season 1 runner up Daniel W. Fletcher. I LOVE this look which features a black tuxedo coat, a white unbuttoned button down, a pair of boot cut white piped slashed trousers, and a wide white asymmetrical cummerbund from his Fall 2020 Menswear collection titled “Start Me Up.” It is a cool new take on the classic tuxedo and I feel like that is what MGK is into. Only thing I would add a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Trapman Flat’ formal combat style leather boots and two Jacob & Co necklaces including a white gold set white diamond studded ‘Safety Pin’ necklace and a white diamond asscher cut cross pendant necklace to really make this look super cool. Finishing out this list is the gorgeous Taylor Swift who is nominated for 5 VMA’s. We haven’t heard about Taylor performing or making any appearances at this years event. I won’t lie to you I’m not loving her new album, but I would love to see her give a super soft glam moment inspired by the aesthetic the album gives wearing this grey and white marbled pattern chiffon Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture one shoulder gown which features a defined waist, ruffle detail on the shoulder, an a-line skirt, and a thigh high split. It is the soft moody glam effortless elegance that is woven in the music from Folklore and I feel like it would be a gorgeous gown on Taylor. It would also be a gorgeous gown if she does perform a song like “Cardigan.” A romantic curly updo, soft defined smokey eyes, light pink lips, a pair of iridescent silver Christian Louboutin ‘Spikaqueen’ crystal embellished PVC pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of elegant Kwiat jewels including a pair of white diamond ‘Legacy Petal’ floral teardrop earrings and a white diamond ‘Entwine’ 4-row cuff bangle bracelet would add the perfect finishing touches to this look.

The 2020 MTV Video Music Awards will take place on Sunday August 30, 2020. You can see all my VMA’s wishes here.
