2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

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

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021. You can see all my wishes for this years show here.

2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

I am still riding a glamour high from Sunday’s Golden Globe Awards, but I am definitely moving forward to this weekends Critics Choice Awards. If this past weekend said anything it just proved that stars are ready to get dressed up and have some fun, even if they are still joining the shows virtually. I definitely am keeping that in mind when it comes to picking looks for the nominees for this weekends Critics Choice Awards. While we eventually get a great floor length look via social media we really only see the stars from the waist up. So all these looks are visually beautiful especially from the waist up. I will say I loved Carey Mulligan’s Prada gown at the Globes in the Zoom setting, but in the full length I wasn’t a huge fan of it all. I want Carey to consistently bring major fashion moments this awards season. So for this weekends Critics Choice Awards I turned to Prada, once again. Now I will say that I had already picked this blue and black beaded and fringe Prada high low flapper gown for Carey long before she showed up in Prada this weekend, and I’ve decided to continue to run with it. I thought of pulling this gown after seeing Dua Lipa pull some of the costumes Prada made for The Great Gatsby for one of her music videos. I honestly had never thought about putting the fabulous creations in wishes before. I was kind of hesitant to do it for Carey since she was one of the stars of the film, but then I asked myself why I was and I couldn’t give myself a good answer. This gown wasn’t worn by any of the main cast members and was just worn by an extra in one of the party scenes and I feel like it deserves a major red carpet moment. I think that styling this gown with a loose wavy bob, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of major black trimmed silver glitter Miu Miu t-strap chunky heel sandals, and antique Fred Leighton old mine white diamond tassel pendant earrings would definitely make this a major fashion moment for Carey. Emma Corrin’s winning Golden Globes look was a custom Miu Miu gown inspired by vintage clowns. It was a look that’s for sure. I can’t say I loved it, but I want Emma to give me fashion and glamour for the Critics Choice Awards this weekend. I would love to see Emma, who debuted a much shorter hairstyle, wear this black satin Chanel Pre-Fall 2021 column gown with a dramatic train and a crystal embellished bodice. I would definitely say that this gown is glamour defined and I feel it would be a superb moment for her to bring to life. I would love to see her edge this look up taking her short boyish cut and giving it a punky styling, thick kohl rimmed eyes, glossy nude pink lips, a pair of black Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ strappy crystal heel sandals, and a white diamond DeBeers ‘Radiating Lotus’ white diamond collar necklace.Maria Bakalova had one of my favorite gowns at the Globes wearing a gorgeous raspberry red Armani Prive crystal embellished strapless ballgown. I didn’t really know what to expect and whatever expectations were in my mind were blown away. I actually ended up dropping the Dior Couture tea length gown I originally had picked for Maria for these wishes and went for something that I feel is a little more fashiony with this blush to wine ombre Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 one shoulder tea length dress which features intricate drape details, exposed corset, and an a-line skirt. I love a great McQueen moment and I know her stylist Jessica Paster does too so I could definitely see this being a look that she would put on the rack for Maria. I think that taking this dress and styling it with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of hot pink Manolo Blahnik ‘Selunga’ buckle detailed silk slingback sandals, and dazzling pink sapphire and ruby Lorraine Schwartz drop earrings would definitely give Maria another amazing fashion moment this virtual awards season. My wish for Ma Rainey herself Viola Davis to wear for the Critics Choice Awards is a complete 180 from the custom African print Lavie by Claude Kameni gown she wore for the Globes. I was obsessed with that whole moment and I love that Viola went there. For the Critics Choice Awards I went with the archive fashion route picking this simple yet very glamorous black chiffon Michael Kors Spring 2005 RTW one shoulder gown which features intricate draping on the bodice and an floating a-line skirt. I’ve always loved seeing Viola in Michael Kors on the red carpet and I feel like this gown is definitely something she would be drawn to. I would nod to a black designer in this look choosing to style this gown with Vanleles jewels including a pair of ‘Out of Africa’ rose gold set white diamond and Mozambican responsibly sourced ruby and rubelite fan drop earrings, a yellow gold ‘The Nile’ sculptural pave set white diamond necklace, and an ‘Out of Africa’ rose gold set white diamond and Mozambican responsibly sourced ruby and rubelite cocktail ring to add a pop of color to this look. A natural pulled back tight curl hairstyle, smokey eyes, glossy black cherry red lips, a gold Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ snakeskin embossed clutch, and a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Misty 120’ ankle strap sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this moment. Headed into the nomination this year Zendaya’s performance in Malcolm & Marie was buzzing a lot for different nominations. When the Globe and SAG Awards were announced I hadn’t seen the film yet and I was so mad that neither nominated Zendaya. That being said, I just didn’t love the film. It wasn’t about her performance because it was stellar, but it was a great performance with no substance from the script. It left me wanting more. I will say that even in spite of my feelings I was happy to see the Critics Choice Awards nominate Zendaya. Not only did they nominate her for Best Actress, but they will be honoring her with the #SeeHer Award. So we know that we are going to see Zendaya in some way on Sunday night. I hope that she heads to the studio where the host and presenters will gather to accept the #SeeHer Award and do so in high style. I went full feminine glam picking this flamingo pink chiffon Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture asymmetrically draped gown. I was looking for the perfect look and this was really the only one that spoke to me. I know that she would know exactly how to work this gown to really bring it to life perfectly. Taking this gown and adding a sleek bun updo, defined winged soft smokey eyes, glossy deep taupe lips, a pair of light pink Casadei platform ankle strap sandals, and MAJOR white diamond Yeprem High Jewelry ‘Gravity’ cluster meets fringe drop earrings would definitely make this the absolutely major moment I am craving from Zendaya.

The 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday March 7, 2021. You can find all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 8

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

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