2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

With every passing day I get a little more optimistic that the 2021 Golden Globe Awards will be absolutely fantastic. I really feel like even though nominees will join the show remotely that with presenters appearing live that this show will feel real and authentic. We are still very much in the midst of my nominees wishes for this years Golden Globe Awards. I don’t know what it was about 2020 but despite the fact that there felt like a lack of movies and even new television programs that this years red carpets could have been the strongest in years. The stars in today’s wishes include two who I don’t expect major things from but will continue to wish big, a red carpet princess, a dude who subtly pushes the boundaries, and a new Chanel girl who just might be the brands best ambassador yet. History has already been made at the 2021 Golden Globes just thanks to the nominees in the Best Director category. This year a record 3 women are nominated and two of them are women of color. Chloe Zhao is one of them. She has been lauded since the film made its debut in Venice where it won 3 awards including the Best Picture award. So I am definitely keeping my eyes on her as one to watch this awards season. As I was looking at her past red carpet appearances it seems like Chloe avoids black tie events and really just rocks very comfy and casual looks for photo lines. It makes sense she is more behind the scenes thank in front of the camera glam. But with a possible run to Oscar gold ahead of her I have some superb options in mind to push her through awards season this year starting with this color blocked gold, gunmetal, and bronze sequin Tom Ford Spring 2015 RTW long sleeve column gown. It is definitely going to push Chloe’s comfort zone, but I do think it would be a really cool and glamorous moment for the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. I wouldn’t push the boundaries with the styling keeping with her regular barely there makeup, wash and go hair, black satin Tom Ford ‘TF 105’ pointed toe pumps, and yellow gold ‘Cactus de Cartier’ drop earrings to make this a super chic and glamorous red carpet moment. I would say that this awards season has to be exactly what Frances McDormand dreams of. Even when she made the winning awards season run for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri she never made an actual appearance on any of the red carpets including the Oscars. In fact the only red carpet I feel like she’s actually stopped to pose for in recent years is when she was a guest of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s at the 2018 Met Gala. I wouldn’t expect her to doll up if she is joining the broadcast from home, but hey I can dream right? For formal occasions she has exclusively worn Valentino, mostly customized RTW looks. So when I was starting to pick looks I went shopping on the virtual racks. I found this red Valentino ‘Le Rouge’ silk chiffon long sleeve dress with a flowing pleated a-line skirt. It is a very chic moment and I would believe that this look would definitely be something that Frances would be drawn to. Her short pixie style, no makeup, and a pair of red Valentino ‘Rockstud’ flat leather sandals would finish this look in true Frances McDormand style.After being surprisingly shut out at the Emmy Awards, save for a Directing and Writing nomination, The Great is getting some awards season love. Elle Fanning earned her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy thanks to her role as Catherine the Great. Regular readers will know that I always LOVE to see Elle Fanning on a red carpet and I am praying that she will go all out for her first Globes nomination even if she does join the telecast remotely. I would love to see Elle give us princess glamour wearing this seafoam green Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture strapless ballgown with pink and blue floral hand painted and beaded detail from neckline to hem. It was one of my favorite pieces from this collection and I would love to see this red carpet princess bring it to life on the red carpet. I would style this moment with a sleek romantic curl detail updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of silver metallic leather Roger Vivier ‘RV Bouquet’ floral strass buckle pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of Chopard ‘Precious’ collection jewels including paisley white diamond wreath hoop earrings and a white diamond and pink diamond ring to make ooze glamour from head to toe. Nicholas Hoult is a man that can give very chic menswear moments. So I would absolutely love to see him give a superb moment at the Golden Globe Awards where he has also earned his first nomination. I would love to see Nicholas, who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, wearing this black Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 menswear tuxedo which features the signature LV monogram flowers embroidered on it. It is a chic moment with some extraordinary details and I think that it is a perfect moment for Nicholas to rock on this red carpet with the runway styling minus the cross body bag and swapping shoes for a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ slip on oxfords.Last up today is an emerging star who is quickly becoming one of the best Chanel ambassadors. It was in the lead up to the Emmy’s we first saw Shira Haas wearing some Chanel looks for virtual appearances to promote Unorthodox. Then she was one of the few in a couture gown for the Emmy’s. All of these looks came courtesy of Chanel. So I have a hard time believing that she would be wearing anything other than Chanel for this years Golden Globe Awards. I was looking at the collections and thought that this sand tulle Chanel Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless gown with features a drop waist, slight v-neck, knotted top, and a beaded macrame bodice. It is chic and bohemian and honestly something that is more Maria Grazia’s Dior than Chanel, but I absolutely think it would be perfect for Shira to wear for the Golden Globes. A chic curly pixie, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of champagne gold glitter Aquazzura ‘May’ strappy sandals, and Chanel Haute Joaillerie “Escale à Venise” asymmetrical 18k gold and white diamond camellia and leaf ear cuff and stud earrings would definitely make this look ooze youthful bohemian sophistication.

2021 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.

2020 American Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

I am thrilled that we are going to have a major red carpet at the American Music Awards this weekend. I am really interested in seeing what the red carpet will look like. With COVID-19 we know that it will not be business as usual, but with the list of performers alone I am thrilled to see what this red carpet will end up looking like. I really want to see some major fashion moments from everyone we see step out.We’ve seen Doja Cat give us major fashion moments on every red carpet this fall. I went through all kinds of looks trying to pick the perfect look for Doja to rock on the AMA’s red carpet. She is nominated for 4 awards and will be performing so I knew I wanted to bring something major. Enter this black and bronze silk Maison Margiela Spring 2020 Couture slip style velvet devore spotted gown which features thin straps, a plunging open back, and a short train. I have been in love with this gown since it was first presented back in January and while I’ve mentally had it on reserves for Zoe Kravitz I feel like Doja would be able to serve it up as the moment I know it can be. I would go for a really 90’s inspired moment styling this look with sleek long center parted black hair, defined eyes, dark bronze-y red lips, a pair of strappy black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Vanilla Punk’ knee high stiletto sandals, and a bit of sparkle via Kallati ‘Eternal’ white and yellow diamond drop earrings. I would definitely LOVE this moment. I’m going to try my best to not dive into a rant about Miranda Lambert like I did yesterday with Maren Morris, but my feelings are pretty much the same. I can’t really stand Miranda’s style. She has never wowed me and I don’t expect her to do it now. I would be shocked if she showed up on this red carpet wearing this burgundy to red ombre sequin Jenny Packham strapless gown which features a structured bodice, sweetheart neckline, and a column silhouette. I went off the rack to make it a little more of a possibility, but I still don’t expect it to happen. A loose romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a burgundy mirrored Jimmy Choo ‘Sweetie’ envelope clutch, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Liu 100’ mesh-paneled sandals, and a selection of major IVY New York jewels including statement rubellite and diamond pendant drop earrings and a red spinel and diamond cocktail ring would definitely put this look together perfectly giving us the major fashion moment I know we shouldn’t expect to see from Miranda. I’ve never featured Paris Hilton in a wish list before, but there’s a first for everything right? She will be one of the presenters at the AMA’s on Sunday and I am interested in seeing what she will wear. I want Paris to give us sexy glamour wearing this black sequin asymmetrical beaded stripe Jean Fares sleeveless column gown which features a plunging neckline and a thigh high split. It is a little more covered than we are used to seeing from Paris, but I feel like when Paris goes for glamour that is when she gives her best looks. This gown is very classic in it’s style and isn’t a boundary pushing style in the least, but I would love to see Paris bring the look to life. A sleek retro inspired updo, thick defined smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black and silver Christian Louboutin ‘Double L Pump’ pointed toe crystal embellished strappy mesh pumps, and a statement white diamond Harry Kotlar cushion cut pendant drop necklace would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Paris. Roddy Rich has 8 nominations at this weekends AMA’s and I have to say that since he isn’t a performer this year that he won’t be taking any awards home. I haven’t followed him to be honest, but I feel like he would give good fashion on the red carpet. For a cool look I went to a Louis Vuitton Spring 2021 Menswear ensemble which features an abstract black and white check print hooded trucker jacket pair with black trousers and black sneakers with a green sole for Roddy. I can definitely see it being a great music award show red carpet. I would ditch the runways hat and bag maybe adding some thick framed black sunglasses to make this a really cool menswear moment. Hot on the heels of the announcement that he will be headlining that Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show we are going to see The Weeknd performing at this years AMA’s. He tied Roddy for most nominations with 8 and I am expecting him to bring several home. When it comes to style Abel doesn’t push many boundaries. I loved the red suit he wore for the VMA’s earlier this year. For the AMA’s which I imagine he will sneak in the side door for I would love to see The Weeknd wearing this deep purple Rynshu Spring 2021 RTW slim fit tuxedo with contrasting black satin peak lapels and an iridescent silver strap on the two button blazer. I think this is a super classic look with a bit of a twist which is exactly what I want to see from The Weeknd. I would finish the look with a pair of black calfskin leather Christian Louboutin ‘Samson Flat’ ankle boots and black and grey Gucci square aviator sunglasses.

The 2020 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 22, 2020. Check out all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2020 American Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

Having watched the People’s Choice Awards this weekend I feel even more excited about the 2020 American Music Awards this weekend. We are hearing some amazing names of performers and presenters and I feel like in addition to the nominees that this could be one of the best nights of fashion since we’ve started social distancing. The looks in today’s wishes are as varried as the artists whom I want to see wearing them. I feel like some of these looks were made for the runway with these women in mind. I think the best case and point in looks being made for the runway inspired by a star I think is this fugly Louis Vuitton Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features an oversized polo with a leather top and a diagonal striped bottom paired with a neon pop art wide leg shorts which I definitely think was made with Billie Eilish in mind. I hate the look because it isn’t my style at all, but I do think it is something that Billie would rock the look on a red carpet and American Music Awards is perfect. I can see it happening with Billie wearing the whole head to toe runway styling including those moon boot meets sneaker things that I just don’t understand, but that is what Billie’s style is to me. Jennifer Lopez shut down the People’s Choice Awards this weekend wearing a super cute voluminous Christian Siriano red bubble dress. Now while I loved that moment I want to see her bring some glamour to the red carpet at the American Music Awards this weekend where she will be performing “Pa’ Ti + Lonely” which are two songs recorded by JLo and Maluma for the soundtrack of their  upcoming film, Marry Me. I knew immediately what dress I wanted to see from Jennifer. I’ve been loving the idea of her bringing this silver asymmetrical Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture fitted sequined and beaded tulle gown since the lookbook was released back in September. I feel like Jennifer would make this an uber sexy glam moment. Now I would leave the veil at home instead opting to style this gown with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, a silver crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Smooth Rectangle Polaris’ box clutch, silver dome studded PVC strap Christian Louboutin ‘Corinetta 100’ strappy sandals, and a selection of dazzling Harry Winston jewels including a pair of shell inspired white diamond cluster earrings and a vintage white diamond lattice bracelet from 1959. It would make for a major head to toe dazzling moment. Katy Perry will be giving the first ever live performance of her latest single “Only Love” off her new album Smile on Sunday night. I am always excited to see what Katy will bring to the red carpet and this is no different. I always love seeing what Katy will wear. I’ve picked two looks for her in these wishes with one for the red carpet and one for the actual performance. Starting with the red carpet I would love to see Katy give ethereal femininity wearing a raspberry pink to white ombre tulle Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture asymmetrical gown which features a sheer side panel and dramatic caped sleeves. It is more of a feminine and soft look than I feel like we’ve seen Katy wear on the red carpet in a little while and I think it would be a great post pregnancy moment for Katy to bring to life on this red carpet. Style it with a romantic curly updo, defined eyes, raspberry pink lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and dazzling David Morris white diamond and pink conch pearl chandelier earrings to really make this look feminine glamour defined. Now I won’t lie to you I found the performance look for Katy first and thought about it being her red carpet look. I LOVE this red and pink rose printed Richard Quinn Spring 2020 RTW strapless mermaid gown which features a sweetheart neckline and a ribbon asymmetrically draped from the shoulders to the hem with words of love written in crystal beading. I saw this dress while I was actually listening to “Only Love” and immediately fell in love with the idea of Katy wearing it to perform the number. It is the glamorous side of kitschy and that is why I love it for Katy. I feel like Katy would need a boost in the height department so I picked a pair of black sequined Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Bebe’ major platform d’Orsay pumps to add that height (mostly because they would be hidden by the mermaid hem.) A sleek side parted beehive updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, and a pair of simpler white diamond and ruby David Morris chandelier earrings would add the perfect finishing touches. Both moments would give Katy two major fashion moments this Sunday. Megan Thee Stallion has FIVE American Music Award nominations this year and she will be on hand performing at this years show. We don’t know what it is she will be performing yet, I’m hearing it’s a debut single, but I am really excited to see what she will bring to life on this red carpet. It will be her first red carpet appearance since she sat front row at the Coach fashion show back in February. I would love to see her wear the Zuhair Murad Couture gown I featured in my Billboard Music Award wish list, or the Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu gown I picked for her to wear in my VMA’s wishes, or even the Aliette cocktail dress I put in my wishes for the BET Awards, but I had to make sure I put something new into the universe. I’ve been thinking about this fuchsia silk taffeta Christopher John Rogers ruched strapless gown which features a tulip shaped ankle length skirt, a thigh high split, and a MAJOR train for a really long time. I’ve wanted to use it for almost every red carpet, but I just haven’t felt the right vibe yet. Until now. I think that Megan would definitely rock this very 80’s glam moment on the red carpet at the American Music Awards. Styling this look with glamorous old Hollywood half up/half down retro hairstyle, thick winged eyes, deep fuchsia lips, a pair of fuchsia glitter Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Polina’ cross-strap slingback sandals, and a selection of Gismondi 1754 jewels including a pair of pink ruby and white diamond chandelier earrings and a dazzling one of a kind ‘Goddess’ white diamond teardrop collar necklace. Rounding out today’s wishes is a soft glamour moment for Taylor Swift whom is nominated for 4 AMA’s including Artist of the Year. It is also rumored that she will be performing, but as of yet this hasn’t been confirmed. With her “Folklore” era having come completely during the COVID lockdown I’m still on the pastel lightness she was drawn to during the Lover” era. Enter this soft lilac Valentino Spring 2021 RTW ruffled silk chiffon gown which features a blouson silhouette, ruffled trim, round neck, balloon sleeves, nude bodysuit, and a small train. It is a very fashion-y choice for Taylor whom has never worn Valentino before, but I feel like this gown would be a super chic moment for her to wear at the American Music Awards especially if it was styled with a romantic updo, soft silver smokey eyes, bold hot pink lips, lilac suede Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of white diamond Anabela Chan x Diamond Foundry ‘Vine’ floral and butterfly drop earrings.

The 2020 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 22, 2020. Check out all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2020 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

We are just a couple days away from the 2020 VMA’s. I am really excited to see what this years virtual edition is going to bring. I have no real expectations. We’ve seen some events go really great while others have left me wanting more. I want this event to go over delivering a major production that helps us escape from the reality of the pandemic, at least for a little bit. Billie Eilish earned herself six nominations at this years VMA’s. After sweeping the Grammy’s earlier this year it would seem like she is the heir apparent to do the same for the VMA’s. When it comes to style we know that Billie favors her oversized street inspired looks. I noticed that over the course of the Fall 2020 collection presentations earlier this year that brands that I never would have turned to for looks for Billie were showing a look that could have been optioned by the teen pop star. I told a friend that writing that I was picking a look from Erdem for Billie for this wish sounds far fetched. She responded “HAHAHAHHA it’s a good dream.” Then I sent her this silver silk floral jacquard pajama inspired oversized co-ord from the Erdem Fall 2020 RTW collection and she responded with “I’d never imagine this to be HER, but it’s exactly HER.” I think that is the mark of a good designer. Erdem expanded his glam to a new market with this look and I do feel like it would be a cool moment for Billie especially styled with a pair of silver and white Roger Vivier ‘Viv Run’ crystal embellished buckle chunky sneakers. Had there been a red carpet at the VMAs it would have been the first MAJOR red carpet Demi Lovato would have walked. I would have liked to see what she would have cooked up for the red carpet. I didn’t go to the runways though for the perfect glamour moment for Demi to rock with this hot pink Versace cross draped stretch jersey halter neck gown with gold safety pin details and center split from the virtual racks of LuisaViaRoma.com. While Demi could pull a look from many major runways this dress is a super cool moment that I feel she would be able to make this gown into a MAJOR fashion moment. Styling this gown with a sleek side parted updo, thick defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, a pair of fuchsia glitter Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Polina’ strappy sandals, and Nikos Koulis ‘Feelings’ collection yellow gold chain hoop earrings with white diamonds would definitely ensured this is one of Demi’s best red carpet moments ever. I know that Halsey can serve a major fashion moment on the red carpet, but often times I feel like I’m questioning her taste. I want her to continue to give her fashionable chameleon vibes, but always making sure that she hits the high fashion marks. So when I was thinking about what I would have wanted to see her wear on the red carpet at the VMA’s if there was one I immediately went to this dramatic midnight blue, grey, lavender, and gold watercolor agate print Georges Hobeika Fall 2020 Couture gown which features dramatic caped sleeves. It’s a super cool moment and not many could sell it to me. I feel like the edgy that Halsey brings to the red carpet would definitely make sure that this look screams cool especially if styled with a short black finger wave updo, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Bel’ silver crystal embellished peep toe slingback sandals, and Anita Ko white diamond ‘Rain Drop’ earrings set in white goldMegan Thee Stallion knows how to serve glamour on the red carpet so I am disappointed that we won’t get to see her give us a major fashion moment on the VMA’s red carpet. Had there been one I would have LOVED to see Megan give us femme fatale glamour wearing this sapphire blue sequined Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu Fall 2020 Couture strapless sculptural mermaid gown which features an asymmetric neckline, half peplum, and a thigh high split. It would ooze glamour and with old Hollywood lives, thick winged eyes, bold red lips, sapphire blue velvet Tom Ford jeweled heel sandals, and a selection of major Butani jewels including a pair of twisted wreath white diamond earrings, a white diamond leaf wave cut bracelet, and a selection of white diamond and sapphire rings. The Weeknd is nominated and will be performing at this weekends VMA’s. It’s been a while since he’s been out on the red carpet and I am excited to see what he will rock. The last red carpet he walked he gave us 70’s vibes and I kinda stuck to that for my wish for him to wear for the VMA’s. I would love to see The Weeknd rock this black damier check print single breasted suit from the Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 Menswear collection with a crisp white button down shirt and a thin black skinny tie. Finishing the moment with a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Voltaire’ silver metal toe capped derbies and graphite Louis Vuitton ‘Mascot Marble’ square aviator sunglasses would definitely make this a super chic menswear moment.

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

2020 MTV Video Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

The Jonas Brothers only picked up one VMA’s nomination this year and aren’t as of late scheduled to perform. I would have loved to see the JoBros walk the red carpet with their wives who stared alongside the brothers in the nominated “What A Man Gotta Do” music video. This is one fashionable family. So I am really disappointed that we won’t get to see them on the red carpet. The Jonas Brothers have been giving great coordinated looks as they’ve been on the red carpet promoting their return. I turned to the newest Atelier Versace collection that featured more menswear then we have ever seen before. I picked three complimentary looks that I feel speaks to each of the brother’s sense of style. Let’s start with Nick. I love this gold chainmail tuxedo blazer with gold striped pants. Nick can be drawn to a very extra take on masculinity and that is exactly what we see in this look. For Kevin I went a little more conservative with a black silk jacquard double breasted tuxedo that features some crystal embellishment on the shoulders and gold buttons. Out of the three brothers Kevin is definitely the most conservative when it comes to style, but he isn’t afraid to push the boundaries a little bit. This look speaks to both sides of Kevin’s style. Finally for Joe I went with the most avant garde style which features a peak label blazer with rose pink to black ombre blazer. It’s a cool look and I know that Joe would make sure it was a super cool moment for the red carpet. Of the Jonas Brother wives Priyanka Chopra is by far the most fashionable. I have long loved seeing Priyanka on the red carpet and I’m disappointed that we won’t get to see her and Nick together on the red carpet. I decided to pick a look from the same Atelier Versace collection I picked the tuxedos for Nick, Kevin, & Joe. I LOVE this sunset orange and coral pink strapless gown which features a crystal embellished lace bodysuit and a scarf style a-line skirt with a thigh high split and a dramatic train. I feel like this color would be major on Priyanka. Old Hollywood waves, bronze smokey eyes, dark coral lips, a pair of gold crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ‘Cleo’ anklet coil sandals, and simple yellow diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection briolette cut simple chandelier earrings would make this a major moment. Sophie Turner is locked to her Louis Vuitton contract so I am sure that if she were to attend the VMA’s with the Joe Jonas I know she would rock an LV look on the red carpet. There aren’t many I really would want to see her bring to life. I do think that this speed racer meets bohemian meets rock and roll glam moment from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2019 RTW collection is really one of the only looks I would like to see Sophie bring to life on this red carpet. The leather bodice and the mini skirt over the chiffon pants is a cool look and I think that it could be a cool look for Sophie to bring to life with a sleek high ponytail, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black leather Louis Vuitton ‘Horizon’ platform sandals, and Ana Khouri ‘Lily’ 18k fairmined gold and white diamond drop hoop earrings. Danielle Jonas doesn’t do a while lot of fashion I would have still loved to see her bring some glamour to the red carpet at the VMAs with her husband Kevin. I don’t have a while lot to reference when it comes to Danielle’s style I thought this silver grey Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu Spring 2020 Couture gown would be perfect. Its super glamorous and I feel like it would compliment the Atelier Versace tuxedo I’ve picked for Kevin. I would love to see Danielle wear this gown with a sleek updo, defined eyes, deep rose pink lips, a pair of silver grey Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ strappy sandals, and Kwiat ‘American Beauty’ pear shape and marquise hanging earrings. It would definitely make sure that the Jonas Brother’s and company would have shut down the VMA’s red carpet.

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

2020 Venice Film Festival: “Lovers” Photocall & Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

When it comes to the red carpets in Venice I am getting more and more excited as the days go by. I am really excited to see what everyone is cooking up for the first major red carpet event since the COVID-19 pandemic hit. So I am really intrigued to see last years jury member Stacy Martin back on the Lido to promote her latest film Lovers which is set in Paris and follows the story of Lisa, who, while on vacation with her husband, rekindles a passionate affair with her ex-boyfriend. But that may lead to a murder.Last year Stacy wore mostly short looks for her jury duty, but this year I’ve gone with one short look and one (custom) gown for her to rock on the Venice Film Festival red carpet. I’m honestly shocked that I’ve picked two black looks to be honest, but they both just spoke to me. So let’s start with the photocall which I would love to see Stacy give us 70’s inspired chic wearing this black chiffon Celine Fall 2020 RTW long sleeve boho dress which features a blouson fit, high neckline, horizontal pleats down the bodice, a drop waist, and vertical pleated a-line circle skirt. I adore me a good boho glam moment and I definitely think that is what Stacy would be delivering to us wearing this look on the photocall stage in Venice. Finishing the look with a sleek center parted low bun, simple defined eyes, glossy pink lips, the runways gold chain belt, ditching the fringe pendant necklace, and adding a pair of black Celine ‘Sharp’ gold studded strappy leather sandals would make this look scream effortless bohemian elegance. For the premiere I’m going to ask you to get creative. I saw this black Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 mermaid skirt with a pleated flared hem and I thought it would be a really cool start of a gown. Now I’m not sure about the top will look like. I feel like it would be a straight strapless bustier bodice. Maybe adding a peplum on the hips, and belting it with a Louis Vuitton ‘Midnight’ 50mm black leather belt that features a massive sharp silver buckle. Of course I would also make sure the hem hits the floor. To make this look scream modern edgy glamour I would style this look with a sleek center parted updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Call Back’ ankle strap sandals, and statement Cartier High Jewelry ‘Type IIA’ white diamond drop earcuffs.In the course of my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival I have a whole set of wishes for jury president Cate Blanchett. Regular readers know I LOVE me some Cate Blanchett and I am praying to the fashion gods that she will deliver Best Dressed of the Year worthy moments. Four of the past nine Best Dressed of the Year lists have included Cate giving us dramatic glamour. Now she is the face of an Armani fragrance and the Italian fashion label is a sponsor of the festival so I have a feeling that Cate will wear a couple of looks from the label on the red carpet. In today’s wish I turn back to the same bold pink and blue Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture strapless column gown which features a bandeau like corseted bodice and intricate beaded pattern that I featured in my wishes for Sara Sampaio yesterday for Cate today. If you had to ask me who I would most want to see wearing it I would have to say Cate. Each woman would wear the gown perfectly but in very different ways. For Cate I would style this look with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, the runways matching clutch, a pair of matching pink Christian Louboutin ‘Araborda’ crystal embellished peep toe slingback sandals, and Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including a pair of white diamond and pink rubellite teardrop pendant earrings from the 2015 collection and a MAJOR multicolored pink and purple sapphire bracelet set in pink titanium from the 2020 collection. I feel like I don’t know a while lot about French actress and jury member Ludivine Sagnier’s style, but I am really interested in seeing what she will be wearing on the red carpets over the course of the festival. Gucci is usually a staple on the red carpet in Venice so I turned to the Italian fashion brand for this look for Ludivine. I love this metallic purple sequin Gucci Pre-Fall 2020 long poet sleeve, straight fit gown which features a mandarin inspired collar, peekaboo details on the check and shoulders, and a thigh high split and I feel like it could be a really cool look for Ludivine to wear. With this dazzling gown being such a statement I would usually go for simple styling, but since it is a film festival and I want to see everyone go big or go home I would love to see Ludivine style this gown with a wavy bob hairstyle, soft smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of purple suede Gucci crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and statement Gucci High Jewelry lion and floral white diamond, amethyst, and pink morganite chandelier earrings. It would make for a really dazzling red carpet moment. Up to today all the lovely ladies I have wished to see represent Armani in Venice adding glamour to the red carpet have been those with direct connections to campaigns with the brand. We have seen the label invite some other stars to the red carpet in Venice to promote the brands beauty and runway collections. So with that in mind I decided I wanted to add a little fantasy to these wishes. In a perfect world I would love to see Emmy Rossum jetted to Venice to walk the festivals red carpet wearing two gorgeous Armani Prive gowns. We’ve seen Emmy wear Armani for the Golden Globe Awards, SAG Awards, WWD Honors, the Critics Choice Awards, and the Toronto Film Festival in the past. It is always a very glamorous pairing. If she were to head to Venice to promote the brand I would love to see her kick off her time at the festival wearing this bold electric blue hand embroidered arabesque lace one shoulder a-line gown from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture collection. I definitely feel like we will see this gown in Venice and Emmy would definitely be able to bring it to life with ease styling it with a sleek retro updo, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of matching electric blue Rene Caovilla ‘Bessie’ two strap crystal embellished mule sandals, and a selection of vintage Van Cleef & Arpels including white diamond and sapphire floral drop earrings and a major sapphire and white diamond art deco inspired bracelet. The second look I would love to see Emmy wear in Venice is this soft blush pink Armani Prive Fall 2019 Couture strapless ballgown which features intricate beaded embellishments and a banded ball skirt. I am honestly shocked that this gown is still available. I don’t know why no one snatched this gown up for last falls film festival season or awards season. It screams feminine glamour. I believe that it would definitely be something that Emmy would be drawn to. Style it with Veronica Lake waves worn over one shoulder, simple defined eyes, bold pink lips, a pair of nude pink Pierre Hardy ‘Midnight’ crystal trimmed open toe strappy sandals, and a dazzling white diamond Van Cleef & Arpels ‘Snowflake’ three grow garland collar necklace and Emmy would have two major red carpet moments on her hands.

The 2020 Venice Film Festival will open on Wednesday September 2, 2020 and runs through Saturday September 12, 2020. You can see all my Venice Film Festival wishes here.

2020 Cannes Film Festival What Could Have Been Wish List: “Top Gun: Maverick”

Tom Cruise and Cannes might not seem like the most natural of fits — the actor hasn’t appeared at the festival to promote one of his films since “Far and Away,” way back in 1992 — but the festival always needs a few big stars on the red carpet, and Cruise has continued to be one of the biggest star in the world. His much-hyped return to jet fuel-powered drama, “Top Gun: Maverick” boasts a stacked cast of both big names and rising talents, and would have benefited immensely from the global stage Cannes sets out. As with “Rocketman” last year, a “Top Gun” slot would have helped catapult the movie into its theatrical release, which was slated for June 24 and has sense been pushed back to December 23, 2020. I definitely would have expected to see this film screen as an out of competition gala. So let’s jump right into my wishes shall we?Jennifer Connelly is probably my LEAST favorite Louis Vuitton ambassador. She has been such a loyal friend to Nicholas Ghesquiere throughout his career and that loyalty has only grown stronger thanks to Louis Vuitton checks. So while I did decide to go left of Louis for other LV ambassadors for at least one of their looks for Cannes I stuck solely to the label for Jennifer. For the photocall for Top Gun: Maverick photocall I picked this grey, butter yellow, and white Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 RTW sleeveless sheath dress which features intricate leather detailing. The look is space age meets classic dressing and was one of my favorite pieces from this collection. Now while I would love to see this look styled simply I know that Jennifer will pair this dress with something a little more statement making in terms of accessories. I think that Jennifer would style this dress with a sharp pointed toe Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 RTW slingback zip up mid heel black and white leather pumps, a sleek center parted hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, and soft pink lips. For the premiere I went back and forth on what look to pick for Jennifer. While I would imagine Nicholas would have created a custom gown for Jenn she does tends to wear mostly right off the runway looks. So I decided to go with this gold tiger print cocktail dress which features black satin bralet from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 RTW collection because it would be okay as it was presented or customized into a custom floor length gown. It is an edgy moment but could be quite glamorous. I would love to see this as a gown with a sleek updo, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, and a pair of black patent leather Louis Vuitton ‘Bliss’ multi-strap mary jane round toe chunky heel pumps. It would have made for two alright Louis Vuitton looks on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. My first wish for what I wanted to see Hailey Beiber bring to life in Cannes was really Barbie glam. For my second wish for Hailey I went to something that speaks to her more sexy side. I thought this pearl grey one shoulder Roberto Cavalli Couture column gown which features intricate beading on sheer fabric definitely would have spoken to that sexy side of Hailey’s style, but in a very modern glam manner. This gown definitely needs the right undergarments. So I would hope that Hailey’s stylist Maeve Riley would make sure the undergarments are perfectly nude. A sleek updo, smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of silver crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ‘Cleo’ coil strap sandals, and white diamond Raggiante by de Grisogono High Jewelry earrings would all make sure this look balances sexy glamour in the perfect way. Chinese actress and pop start Li Yuchun is one I always get excited about seeing in Cannes. The L’Oreal Paris spokesmodel doesn’t bring the big princess moments to Cannes. She lets Elle Fanning, Araya Hargate, and Sonam Kapoor handle that. Instead Li Yuchun brings the real avant- grade fashion factor to Cannes. Her looks aren’t always for everyone. I remember her wearing deconstructed Mountie inspired shorts and boots ensemble from Maison Margiela one year for the Opening Ceremony and people hating it and me sitting behind my laptop eating my popcorn and gold clapping for the risk that she took. She really is the only one who could have made a look like that work not just on the red carpet in general, but especially in Cannes. I love when Li Yuchun brings the edgy glam to Cannes, so I turned to the master of edgy glam for my final wish for what I wanted to see her bring to life in Cannes. I’ve been really nostalgic for Gaultier since he announced his immediate retirement back in January. I wanted to see Gaultier worn EVERYWHERE. Both from his final couture show, which was a retrospective celebration of his entire career, and from his archives. For Li Yuchun I dug into Gaultier’s archive picking this menswear inspired glam ensemble which features a black satin double breasted tuxedo jacket with a big bow on the shoulders and a silver heavily beaded column evening skirt with splits on the front, back, and sides from the Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2016 Couture collection. This look is a really cool balance of femininity, masculinity, and glamour. I honestly think this could have been a major moment especially with Li Yuchun’s sterling rose colored hair. I would have styled this ensemble with a sleek side parted pixie style defined eyes, bold red lips, a black crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Sphere Ball & Chain’ minaudière, black leather Christian Louboutin ‘Filamenta’ strappy nude mesh paneled peep toe platform pumps, and Messika High Jewelry including the statement white diamond ‘Diamond Whirl’ collar necklace and asymmetrical white diamond ‘Shirin’ ornate rope style ear crawling earrings to make this look ensure that balance of masculine elegance and feminine glamour was done perfectly.

2020 Cannes Film Festival What Could Have Been Wish List: “The Story Of My Wife”

Hungarian director Ildiko Enyedi’s The Story Of My Wife held Cannes promise, in part thanks to its French cast members Lea Seydoux and Louis Garrel. The Cannes habitués star alongside Dutch actor Gijs Naber in this adaptation of Marin Fust’s eponymous 1942 literary classic about a Dutch sea captain obsessed with the idea that his flirtatious French wife has been unfaithful. Enyedi, who won Berlin’s Golden Bear for On Body And Soul in 2017, last screened a film at Cannes some 30 years ago when she won the Caméra d’Or for My 20th Century. So with the push for a more balanced selection of male and female directors I would have loved to see The Story of My Wife screen at this years festival. Lea Seydoux has been in Cannes screening films, winning awards, and serving on the jury for almost two decades now. The French actress has always been one who has intrigued me on the red carpet. While I complain often about Louis Vuitton ambassadors and there red carpet looks I have to admit that Lea is one of the more successful spokemodels for the French luxury label. That being said I still didn’t pick two head to toe Louis Vuitton looks for Lea to wear to promote The Story of My Wife. Instead for the photocall I picked this cream Lanvin Fall 2020 RTW dress which gives modern 20’s meets 70’s vibes. The dress features a thin brand signature print throughout, intricate beading on the bodice and neck, long poet sleeves with ruffled cuffs, a drop waist, and tiered pleated mini skirt and I think Lea would make it an effortlessly glamorous moment for a Cannes Film Festival photocall. Soft retro waves, defined eyes, bright pink lips, and a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Call Back’ ankle strap pointed toe leather pumps would definitely make this a superb fashion moment for Lea. Now for the premiere I went for sleek sexy glamour with a custom Louis Vuitton long sleeve column inspired by this white and black bustier detail dress. The dress found in the LV online shop is super sexy despite the fact it is completely covered. Taking this mock neck dress with a long zipper down the back and making it into a custom gown completely covered in liquid sequins would definitely make this a major modern moment for Lea especially styled with a sleek side parted low bun updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white leather Louis Vuitton ‘Call Back’ ankle strap sandals, and a pop of color and femininity via Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 “Orchids” drop earrings earrings set with natural-looking sapphire petals and tsavorite buds reveal four black cabochon-cut opals.My second wish for Aja Naomi King following the major Nicolas Jebran gown I picked the other day is all about COLOR. I have been obsessed with this sunset orange Zuhair Murad Fall 2019 Couture draped gown which features an asymmetrical one shoulder neckline, ostrich feather trim, and a cape since it was first presented. Orange isn’t a color we often see on the red carpet which would have made this a super special moment for Aja to bring to life in Cannes. I wanted to really make sure that the looks I’ve picked for Aja screamed glamour, but in a new major manner. I would love to this gown styled with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, nude pink lips, a pair of simple orange Jimmy Choo ‘Minny’ ankle strap sandals, and the sunset in earrings via sleek Chopard ruby, yellow sapphire, and diamond wreath earrings. It definitely would have made sure that Aja delivered nothing but bold, statement glamour in Cannes. I’ve mentioned that I always appreciate that Liya Kebede goes left of traditional for her red carpet looks. I would have loved seeing Liya give relaxed glamour wearing this black silk draped Stella McCartney Fall 2020 loose fit pajama set which features a cowl neck, oversized cuffs, crystal beaded appliques throughout, a paper bag waist, and wide leg trousers. There really isn’t anyone but Liya who I would even remotely think would be able to make this look work on the Cannes red carpet. With all that fabric work really has to be put in to be seen through all the yardage and I know that Liya would rock this look effortlessly. Her signature washed and dried vibe curls, barely there makeup, black Aquazzura ‘Panthere’ pointed toe cutout t-bar ankle strap pumps, and a pair of edgy glam Chopard Loves Rihanna Collection white diamond earcuffs would definitely have ensured Liya just oozed effortless glamour. I also went left of traditional Cannes gowns for Korean supermodel Soo Joo Park. The model loves to bring the unexpected to the red carpet. As I was looking for something for her to wear in Cannes to promote L’Oreal this year I saw this black silk faille Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW cocktail dress which features an asymmetrical one shoulder neckline, intricate voluminous origami draping, an asymmetrical hem, and exposed corsetry and I just thought of how cool a moment it would be. To pull off a cocktail dress as a major moment on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet you have to just ooze cool girl glam and I really do believe that Soo Joo has that vibe. To make this look major from head to toe I would style this look with a sleek center parted updo, smokey winged eyes, deep ruby red lips, a pair of black chiffon and satin Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Etoile’ big bow and crystal detail ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Messika High Jewelry including ‘Sirenetta’ asymmetrical white diamond pendant fringe earrings and a statement ‘Shirin’ white diamond art deco inspired cuff bracelet.

2020 Cannes Film Festival What Could Have Been Wish List: “The French Dispatch”

Wes Anderson has used the Berlin International Film Festival to launch his last two feature films, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Isle of Dogs” but 2020 was supposed to mark the auteur’s big return to Cannes with his new project, The French Dispatch. Anderson was last at Cannes with Moonrise Kingdom, which world premiered on the opening night of the 2012 event. Searchlight’s original July release date for The French Dispatch positioned Cannes as the perfect destination for a world premiere. Now we can expect the film to be released mid-October, so maybe we will see The French Dispatch in Venice. But for now let us continue to fantasize about what could have been had the film had it’s world premiere in Cannes. For a festival that loves stars, it would not have gotten better than the red carpet for The French Dispatch: Tilda Swinton, Bill Murray, Timothee Chalamet, Lea Seydoux, Benicio del Toro, Elisabeth Moss, Owen Wilson, Frances McDormand, and more. I was expecting this film to open this years festival with a glamorous bang. Elisabeth Moss doesn’t really ever wow me on the red carpet, but I always try to keep my expectations up. So I picked two superb fashion moments I think that Elisabeth would bring to life on the Cannes Film Festival red carpets. For the first look I would have loved to see Elisabeth give us a MAJOR vintage moment wearing this black Courreges wool, chiffon, and sequin striped A-line shift coat dress that zips up front and features a nude net underlay, cap sleeves, pocket details, and a v-neckline from The Way We Wore. Elisabeth’s stylist Karla Welch loves to put her clients in vintage and I saw this dress and immediately thought of how amazing Elisabeth would look in it and it would have definitely been a major photocall moment. It isn’t a typical look I would pick for a Cannes photocall being an all black look, but I feel like on Elisabeth this look would have been super chic especially styled with a loose wavy bob, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ velour and mesh paneled pointed toe pumps. For the premiere I went back to Maria Grazia Chiuri’s first couture collection for Dior. I was looking for the perfect gown for Elisabeth and when I saw this black tulle and velvet ball gown from the Christian Dior Spring 2017 Couture collection which feature intricate pressed flower detail on the nude underskirt and it just spoke to me. It is a super feminine glamour moment and Elisabeth loves herself some Dior by MGC so why not pull out one of her best looks for the house to give it a moment on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. I love this feminine moment and I would love to see Elisabeth bring it to life with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, black Francesco Russo asymmetrical patent leather pumps, and a selection of Cartier High Jewelry including a pair of white diamond and pink morganite drop earrings and a vintage white diamond bracelet. It would ensure that Elisabeth would have had her best fashion moments in a long time. Lea Seydoux had several films in consideration for the 2020 Cannes Film Festival and The French Dispatch was a shoo-in to screen at this years festival. I miss the glamorous days of Lea’s style when she would give big grand fashion moments on the red carpets. That was way back before she signed her Louis Vuitton contract. I would have loved to see Lea step out of LV for a moment during this years festival giving us a variety of chic looks from a variety of labels on the Cannes Film Festival red carpets. The step away from LV I wanted for Lea while promoting The French Dispatch was with this brown animal print Prada egyptian cotton asymmetrical a-line dress. I really miss the days of Lea as an unofficial ambassador for Prada and this casual dress for the photocall would have definitely fed my soul. Now I wouldn’t have completely made Lea leave LV behind styling this look with a cream leather and brown monogram canvas Louis Vuitton ‘Locky BB’ top handle bag (for arriving and leaving the photocall), a pair of brown monogram and clear PVC detail Louis Vuitton ‘Cherie’ pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and black and brown Louis Vuitton ‘La Boum Canvas’ cat eye sunglasses. I would finish this look with a chic retro half up/half down hairstyle, defined eyes, and soft pink lips. Now for the premiere, especially if it was the opening ceremony, I would not have expected that Lea would have worn anything other than Louis Vuitton on the red carpet. So I would have loved to see Nicholas Ghesquiere create a custom gown for Lea inspired by this silver grey and black floral beaded pencil dress from the Louis Vuitton Fall 2020 RTW collection. This dress turned into a glamorous floor length gown with a ruched sash waist which turns into a glamorous train would definitely have made for an extremely elegant moment for Lea to deliver on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet. A retro glam updo, defined eyes, red lips, white diamond stud earrings, a pair of black mesh Louis Vuitton ‘Urban Twist’ silver cap toe pointed toe pumps, and a statement white diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection rose cut diamond collar necklace would definitely ensure that this would have oozed glamour. Had Saoirse Ronan made the trip to Cannes to promote The French Dispatch this year it would have been the first time she would have walked that famous red carpet. Now this isn’t the first movie that Saoirse has been a part of that has screed at the festival. She was in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River which screened in the Un Certain Regard section of the festival in 2014. Back then Saoirse really wasn’t a style star. Now she has fully cemented her fashionista status and I would have LOVED seeing her bringing glamour to Cannes starting with 70’s effortlessness with this Gucci Pre-Fall 2020 ensemble which features a white and navy chevron stripe crocheted halter top and a pair of high waisted flared cuff jeans to wear for The French Dispatch photocall. I knew immediately when it came to Cannes that this would have been a super call photocall moment and when I was picking looks for Saoirse it clicked as the right moment for her to bring to life. I would love to see Saoirse keep that 70’s vibe alive with a chic wavy hairstyle, defined eyes, tangerine lip color, and a pair of blood orange Gucci block heel ankle strap chunky platform sandals to really make this look scream effortless bohemian elegance. Now for the premiere I’ve decided I wanted to see Saoirse’s stylist Elizabeth Saltzman cook up a custom Armani Prive moment. I was looking for a perfect gown for Saoirse that would have been worthy of a Cannes Film Festival Opening Ceremony and I just couldn’t find a full runway look I was excited about. I was however thoroughly inspired by the beaded fringe details that adorned bodices of gowns from the Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture collection. So I thought why not use that as the jumping point for a major custom gown? The black, white, blue, and emerald green beading in these two fringes is beautiful. For the custom gown I would have wanted to keep the strapless sweetheart bodice from the look with the white beading then creating a tiered fringe column silhouette out of the green, blue, and black fringe from the other bodice. Honestly, this has potential to be one of my favorite gowns that Saoirse has ever worn. It was easy to imagine this custom gown and I do imagine that Saoirse would make this a dazzling moment with a sleek sculptural updo, emerald greed defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of metallic melon green Miu Miu jewel embellished slingback sandals, and a pair of dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection white diamond and emerald twist teardrop earrings. Tilda Swinton has been attending the Cannes Film Festival since 1987. Over the years she has screened 10 films at the festival, served on the feature film jury in 2004, and as a member of the short films jury in 2002. Of the 10 films that she has screened at the festival two have opened the festival and one has closed the festival. I always look forward to seeing what moments Tilda will bring to the red carpet. She is a fashionista who isn’t afraid to take risks and wear unusual things. With that being said the two looks I’ve picked for Tilda to wear in Cannes to promote The French Dispatch are more classics that I think that she would be able to sell with great aplomb starting with this white and black tailored Alexander McQueen Fall 2020 RTW sleeveless dress which features defined padded shoulders, belted waist, and a high low midi hem. This look is a balance of corporate and military inspiration and I just know in my soul that Tilda would sell this look to me with effortless ease. It doesn’t need a lot of styling, and that isn’t Tilda’s vibe anyway, so I would finish this look with a pushed back coif, defined eyes, bold red lips, and a pair of deep red satin Manolo Blahnik ‘Butina’ asymmetrical strap half d’Orsay pointed toe pumps. For the premiere I went with bold sleek glamour opting to put Tilda in this red Valentino Spring 2020 Couture long sleeve column gown which features a turtleneck , satin cuffs, and a pooling train. This sleek moment is definitely within Tilda’s sense of style and I think that it would be a major moment for her to bring to life in Cannes. Again I wouldn’t do much in terms styling keeping this look super sleek with a high coif, defined eyes, nude pink lips, and a pair of tabasco red Gianvito Rossi ‘Montecarlo’ crystal ankle strap pointed toe d’Orsay pumps. With such a star filled cast, and I didn’t even include everyone, I didn’t include any of the Cannes regulars whom I’ve included in all of my other wishes for this years festival. So closing out today’s wishes are two looks for The French Dispatch star Timothee Chalamet. We have seen Timmy take on the Berlin, Venice, San Sebastian, and London Film Festivals, but this would have been his Cannes debut. Regular readers will know that since he burst onto the scene in 2017 with Call Me By Your Name that I have been obsessed with Timothee’s style. He is all about his avant garde menswear and I really wanted to see him bring high fashion menswear to the red carpets in Cannes this year. For the photocall I went directly to floral silk pajamas from the Sies Marjan Fall 2020 RTW collection. There are very few men out there who could rock this co-ord in Cannes or anywhere, but that is what I love about Timothee. He would rock this look with effortlessness pairing it with white Christian Louboutin ‘Happy Rui Flat’ mesh sneakers. For the premiere I went for GLAMOUR picking this Alexander McQueen Fall 2020 Menswear ensemble which features a gold beaded snake detail coat, a white button up, slim fit pants that continue that beading, and a pair of black leather boots with a gold toe cap. The look is very much Timothee and would have definitely made waves in the world of red carpet menswear on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.
