2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

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

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

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

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

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

2021 AFI Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

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

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

“The Crown” Season 4 Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

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

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

2020 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List

Well, I was SWAMPED with my actual job lately and I’ve been neglecting If I Was A Stylist as a result. That means that even though I had 14 posts planned for the 2020 Emmy Awards, which take place tonight, all I was able to do is this all in gallery for the nominees, presenters, and cast members of nominated projects. I am really interested to see how the Emmy’s will work from home with production kits sent to over 130 different locations. How will the fashion fare? We saw the fashion factor happen for the VMA’s and then Venice Film Festival actually happened in person and I was THRILLED. So in my wishes for this years event I’ve pulled looks hot off the runway this past week during NYFW, things shown seasons ago, as well as several looks I would love to see stars pull out of their archives and give another go. So check out my 54 wishes below and let me know which ones you would most like to see come true.

Milan Fashion Week Fall 2020 RTW Red Carpet Wish List

As they say fashion week stops for nothing. Well this season the Coronavirus tried to shut down the bi-annual Milan Fashion Week, and only partially succeeded. While the theaters on the final day of Milan Fashion Week might have been devoid of the usual guests of editors, buyers, celebrities, and influencers the shows still went on with those aforementioned people watching the collections come down the runway via a livestream from their hotel rooms. Overall I feel like while in shear number I was disappointed in the offerings that came out of Milan, but overall the quality of moment far exceeded both New York and London. In my wishes below you will find some absolutely major wishes for which I am now sending major positive energy out into the universe to manifest the red carpet moments and keep be excited about fashion. After loosing inspiration towards the end of last year and a mostly lackluster and rushed awards season the looks below give me hope that this year will have major glamour moments in store for us.

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

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

2020 Academy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

Today kicks off my wishes for the 2020 Academy Awards. We are finally in the home stretch of awards season. It all comes down to the red carpet this Sunday night at the Oscars. The BAFTA Awards delivered the fashion moments I have been craving all awards season. I don’t know if I had set the bar low following the request from BAFTA that guest re-wear things already in their closets, which only the Duchess of Cambridge and Joaquin Phoenix did, but I was quite pleasantly surprised. I am hoping that after I was super disappointed in the Oscars red carpet for the most part last year that everyone will deliver superb fashion moments from nominees and presenters to performers and guests. Kicking off my wishes are a bunch of this years nominees, three of whom I am expecting are going to take home little gold men, one of last years winners who is back as a presenter this year, a performance look for a nominee, a couple of other presenters, and Billie Eilish who will be giving an undisclosed “special performance” on Sunday night. All of these looks are ready to be brought to life on quite possibly the most important red carpet of the year. I have my hopes high, but I am also trying to manage my expectations so that I am not disappointed in what stars choose to wear on this years red carpet.

The 2020 Academy Awards will take place on Sunday February 9, 2020.

2020 BAFTA Awards Red Carpet Wish List

Sunday night in London the biggest names in Hollywood will descend upon the Royal Albert Hall for the 2020 BAFTA Awards. I have to say that after getting a list of the presenters I am super excited for this years red carpet. “Sustainability is very important to BAFTA, and we’re doing more than ever before,” a BAFTA spokesperson told Harper’s Bazaar. “The goal is that the EE British Academy Film Awards 2020 will be carbon neutral, working towards having a net positive impact on the environment. From travel and food, to branding and materials, BAFTA is ensuring the awards are as sustainable as possible.” That idea has pushed to the red carpet as well. The Duke & Duchess of Cambridge were asked to “dress sustainably” and quickly it went to everyone. So I decided to have fun with these wishes and do things a little differently than normal. Every look from this list is a wish for someone to re-wear something they have in the past, wear a vintage (or nouveau vintage), off the rack, archive runway, or from labels who are lauded as having sustainability as part of their core mission. Honestly I think this might be my favorite set of wishes. I raided the online vintage shop Shrimpton Couture (who has loaned out some of the best vintage for stars including Tracee Ellis Ross, Naomi Campbell, Emily Deschanel, Kate Hudson, Busy Phillips, & more) because owner and curator Cherie Balch has some of the most amazing gowns. I also found “second hand” gowns from The Real Real and 1stDibs. When it came to the re-wear’s I’ve picked it was super easy choices there as each of the looks I want to see worn again are some of the looks that I immediately think of when I think of those ladies. Overall I am really intrigued to see what will happen on this red carpet.

The 2020 BAFTA Awards will take place on Sunday February 2, 2020.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Today is the middle point in my wishes for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Today we have nominees who have been singled out for their individual acting accolades, members of the casts nominated for Best Ensemble, some plus ones, and Joey King who is one of the SAG-AFTRA Ambassadors whom we will see on this red carpet on Sunday night. There are several superb moments waiting to happen out of this set of wishes including the Christian Dior Couture look I want to see from Cynthia Erivo, the Givenchy 3D floral embroidered gown for Gwendoline Christie, the fun floral Giambattista Valli Couture gown for Joey King. I also really love the dayglo pink Helmut Lang gown I picked for Maisie Williams. I have been waiting for the perfect red carpet to pick that gown for her since it first walked the New York Fashion Week runway last September. I also scoured every Chanel Couture collection I could find online from 1980 to 2006 to find the perfect moment for Margot Robbie to wear on the SAG red carpet ahead of the next Chanel Couture presentation next week. All of these looks would definitely make for one of the best SAG Awards red carpets in a while. All elevated drama and glamour and I am totally here for it.

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