2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

The SAG Awards broadcast is this weekend. I say broadcast because I am sure that the Screen Actors Guild has already started bringing their presenters and nominees together to record their sections as this years show will be pre-recorded and broadcast with a 1 hour television special. I am not sure how they are going to condense the whole show into just one hour, but I am sure there will be a way for them to do it. I’ve been ruminating on my wishes for this event for a while. It actually put me in a bit of a funk. I was originally going to start these as soon as I was done with my Grammy’s wishes, but because of the circumstances I just wasn’t feeling inspired. In fact until this past weekend when I finally finished putting the wishes together I was still uninspired. I will not be detailing out everyone. I have just decided that I don’t have that in me right now, but I have a couple days of detailed wishes that will culminate in a big round up style post for everyone else. I picked the stars featured in my detailed wishes based on who I was able to easily pick a look for and who I know has been turning out looks during our virtual awards season. Kicking things off is Amy Adams whom earned a surprise nomination this awards season for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role in a Movie thanks to her role as Beverly “Bev” Vance in Hillbilly Elegy. I’ve always loved Amy and her style, but in more recent years her looks have missed the mark for me. We haven’t seen her show a fashion look since Emmy night 2019 where she wore a hideous Fendi Couture gown. I want to see her give us GLAMOUR this weekend for the SAG Awards and I know it would be a perfect moment to see her wearing this black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2021 RTW crystal embroidered halter neck column gown which features a draped bodice and keyhole bodice cutout. It is classically glamorous and I think that it would be a great moment for Amy to bring to life for the SAG Awards. I would then take this classic gown and style it with a sleek retro glam updo, thick defined soft smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Tom Form ‘TF 105’ slingback pointed toe pumps, and a selection of Cartier jewels including intricate vintage white diamond chandelier earrings and a statement ‘L’Odyssée de Cartier’ white diamond cuff bracelet to really make this look scream glamour from head to toe. Over the course of this major winning awards season Catherine O’Hara has given more understand glam looks with a custom Vera Wang suit at the Golden Globes and a black Elie Saab ruffled cocktail dress for the Critics Choice Awards. For this weekends SAG Awards I would really love to see Catherine finish out the awards run for Schitt’s Creek giving us a bit of razzle dazzle wearing this black, gold, and white art deco inspired Elie Saab Spring 2018 Couture long sleeve column gown. I am SHOCKED that no one has worn this gown yet. I would have figured Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta Jones, Nadine Labaki, or Jane Fonda would have fought over this dress. Three years later we are still waiting to see it have a red carpet moment. I feel like it is totally in tune with Catherine’s chic and sophisticated sense of style and it would make sure that she sends Schitt’s Creek off in HIGH glam style. I feel like her soft wave center parted and worn down, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Roger Vivier gold metal crystal buckle platform chunky heel strappy sandals, and simple elegant IVY New York red spinel and white diamond drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Emma Corrin has been serving LEWKS this awards season. She collected her Golden Globe wearing custom clown inspired Miu Miu and then went for bold 80’s inspired style with a Schiaparelli mini dress for the Critics Choice Awards. Her style has been top notch and I am sad her tenure with the cast of The Crown is coming to an end. After her wins this year I would say that her portrayal of Princess Diana has her as the favorite to take home the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series trophy this year. I went for edgy glam with this silver and black Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless tea length gown with a halter neck vest and a spaghetti strap slip dress for Emma. Now I would ditch the belt from the runway and style this dress with her edgy cropped hairstyle, navy blue glitter Pat McGrath Labs ‘Dark Star’ smokey eyes, soft pink lips, strappy black Awge x Amina Muaddi ‘Isd Gladi’ thigh high crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Messika jewels including asymmetrical white diamond wing cluster earrings and a white diamond fringe cuff bracelet to make sure this look is in line with Emma’s bold edgy glam style.Helen Mirren is one of the announced presenters for this weekend’s show. I have always loved seeing Helen on a red carpet and I cannot wait to see what look she will turn. She isn’t afraid of giving bold glamour on a red carpet and as I am working planning out the rest of awards season and headed into events like Cannes I cannot wait for Helen to serve more and more looks again. I was saving images from the Fall 2021 RTW collections when I saw this hot pink Tony Ward long sleeve a-line gown which features intricate beading on the bodice and sleeves, a jagged drop waist, and a tulle skirt. I immediately thought of Helen when I saw this gown and when I saw she was presenting at the SAG Awards I immediately thought of this gown. It’s such a bold statement moment and I know that Helen would be able to sell it to me easily especially with a sophisticated side parted hairstyle, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of hot pink Alexandre Vauthier crystal toe cap PVC sling back pointed toe pumps, and a bit more sparkle via white diamond Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond cluster earrings. Finishing out today is Vanessa Kirby who has given some simple yet very chic looks this awards season wearing a simple black Gucci halter gown for the Globes and a red lace Saint Laurent gown for the Critics Choice Awards. I have definitely been paying attention to Vanessa and I am praying that she brings major looks to her final stops on the awards season circuit. She knows how to do major tailoring moments so I knew pretty immediately that I wanted to do this black and white Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 RTW tuxedo inspired ensemble for her to rock for the SAG Awards. I love this look which consists of a classic white button down shirt and a pair of black high waisted slim fit trousers with a major bow peplum detail. It is simple, sophisticated, and classic but in a way that SCREAMS drama. I mean can a look be classic and statement making at the same time? Because I definitely think that this look is exactly that. While Vanessa has a very no muss no fuss sense of style I think that the bow detail is within her wheelhouse. I think a sleek down hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black crystal embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Loubiloo Bling Bang’ twist strap ankle strap sandals, and Bulgari ‘Barroko’ collection white diamond and ruby bunting cluster drop earrings would ensure this look fit’s in perfectly with Vanessa’s red carpet vibe.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021.

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 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

Even though the Golden Globes haven’t happened yet I am moving on to the next red carpet which will be the Critics Choice Awards which is next Sunday. Unlike when I started my Globes wishes we know the format that the 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take.  In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 26th annual Critics Choice Awards show will be an in-person/virtual hybrid, with this years host Taye Diggs and some of the evening’s presenters filming from a stage in Los Angeles, and nominees appearing remotely from various locations around the world. As I plan these wishes I am filling them with all the stars nominated on both the film and television side, but I may change things up over the course of the week adding presenters and moving some of the nominees to the roundup post like I did earlier today for the Golden Globe Awards. But, let’s kick things off in high style with 5 major looks for nominees shall we?Andra Day is nominated for Best Actress thanks to her performance in The United States vs Billie Holiday. Because of her very bold vintage inspired/rockabilly style I knew that at some point in my wishes for Andra that I wanted to include something vintage. When I saw this navy and black 1950’s Pierre Balmain Haute Couture beaded organza and silk column gown from Morphew with features halter straps, a high low hem, and a very little train I knew it would be a perfect look for the Critics Choice Awards. This red carpet is usually one of the more laid back events and I think that the simplicity of the silhouette is perfect. I have to say I love seeing vintage Pierre Balmain on the red carpet. The DNA of the house of Balmain is so different than the sex pot glam that we know the house to be now and every time someone pulls out vintage Balmain it really makes for great red carpet moments. I think of Penelope Cruz at the 2009 Oscars and Kristin Davis at the 2020 White House Correspondents Dinner as perfect examples. This very 50’s silhouette, styled with a sleek victory rolls updo, saturated blue smokey eyes with sharp winged liner, bold red glossy lips, a black Holt Renfrew fox fur cape stole with rhinestones, a pair of black satin Givenchy ‘Double G 105’ pointed toe strappy pumps, and a selection of high jewelry from Gismondi 1754 including white diamond ‘Ghiaccio’ floral waterfall earrings and a one of a kind white diamond and sapphire cocktail ring would be an absolutely phenomenal moment for Andra to rock for the Critics Choice Awards. Claire Danes earned her 2021 Critics Choice Awards nomination once again thanks to her role as Carrie Matheson in Homeland. It’s been a while since we’ve seen Claire on an awards red carpet for this series and I would absolutely love to see her giving us a super feminine moment wearing this light blue Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 lace ball gown which features a tie shoulder, ‘square’ neckline, defined waist, and an a-line skirt. It is all about the soft feminine glamour with this look and that would need to have that same elegant femininity in the styling. I would finish this look with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of nude Casadei ‘Felina’ strappy ankle strap sandals, and delicate white diamond Cartier ‘Pluie de Cartier’ feather inspired drop earrings to really make it scream feminine glamour from head to toe.So far in my awards wishes this year for Josh O’Connor I’ve picked intriguing looks from Dior Men & Fendi Couture for him to bring to life on this season red carpets. Continuing with my run of interesting choices for Josh I would have the Best Actor in a Drama Series nominee wearing this ivory Givenchy Pre-Fall 2021 tuxedo which features short peak lapels, pin clasp closure, lengthened hem blazer, and a pair of straight leg trousers. It is a cool look and I definitely think that it would be something that Josh would bring to for this red carpet, even if it a virtual one. I would keep the runway styling just leaving the bag at home and hemming the trousers so there is no pooling at the ankle. Julia Garner has done both the big heritage brand thing and the rising star thing. So I would love to see her do the rising star thing for the Critics Choice Awards after the Burberry gown I want to see her bring to life for the Golden Globes. I must be in a blue feeling for Julia because I would adore seeing her wearing this navy pleated chiffon Rhude Fall 2021 RTW halter gown which features major draping. It is modern, yet glamorous and I feel like it would be a really cool girl moment for her to bring to life. A sleek finger wave updo to really play into the modern flapper vibe of this look, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a navy crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture slim rectangle clutch, a pair of navy glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Misty 120’ ankle strap sandals, and white diamond set in platinum Tiffany & Co. multi-cut drop earrings would make this moment glamorous from head to toe. The last look today is for Shira Haas who I’ve done nothing but Chanel looks for all awards season long and I am not changing that idea any time soon. While I am almost always against brand ambassadors and consistently wearing looks from the same designer all the time I feel like Shira is the perfect ambassador for Chanel. She has a look that we don’t often see from the brand, but her edgy youthfulness works for the brand in a way that other Chanel ambassadors don’t. So as I was looking at looks for Shira to wear for the Critics Choice Awards I thought that this black and white liberty floral print halter gown from the Chanel Spring 2021 RTW collection which features a high halter neck with a pussy bow detail, loose fit blouse, fitted waist, and a high low fishtail skirt would be a perfect choice. This look meshes old Hollywood glamour, 70’s disco, and bohemia and meshes them all together perfectly. I feel like Shira would definitely be the perfect person to bring this look from the runway to real life especially if styled with her shaved head, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, black crystal embellished Rene Caovilla ankle strap sandals, and a pair of dazzling Cartier High Jewelry ‘Dioscures’ white diamond chandelier ear cuffs.

The 2021 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday March 7, 2021.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 15

Well. The 2021 Golden Globe Awards are tomorrow night. In a normal world there would be a ballroom packed full of stars, but well COVID has killed that for all of awards season this year. So instead of writing about the stars who are part of the casts of films and television programs that are nominated, plus ones, and people whom I would usually expect to see on this red carpet I thought I would just put a gallery of wishes together. So as the words to “Audition” from LA LA Land goes “Here’s to the fools who dream, foolish as they may seem.”

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 13

I am getting really excited to see what the Golden Globe Awards are going to bring this weekend. Almost every day we are getting announcements of new presenters who are going to appear live. So the wishes below are ones I definitely moment I am really excited to see. Let’s get into it, Annie Mumolo is back on the big screen right now in Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar and is expected to present this weekend. I can’t say that I know anything about her style, but I want to see her give a very chic and elegant moment on the red carpet. I turned to the virtual racks of Bergdorf Goodman and found this black CDGNY crepe column gown which features silver chainmail cap sleeves and a sweetheart neckline and fell in love. The gown is simple and classic, but the chainmail sleeves give this gown the perfect twist to make it a visually interesting moment. A sleek hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, red lips, a black glitter medley plexi Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Emsy’ crystal embellished peep toe criss-cross sandals, and simple sparkle via Kwiat ‘Silhouette’ white diamond oval drop earrings would make this look scream glamour from head to toe. Bryce Dallas Howard has long railed against the red carpet system and how women dress. Instead of working with a stylist or trying to deal with the limitations of designer samples, the actress is known to buy her outfits right off the rack. For the promo tour for Rocketman Bryce turned to the virtual consignment racks of The Real Real to plan all of her outfits. So when I saw her name on a list of presenters for Sunday’s show I immediately turned to the virtual consignor again. I found this black and red floral print sleeveless Oscar De La Renta tea length gown with a dramatic train and open back and immediately fell in love with the idea of Bryce bringing it to life. This gown is from the brands Fall 2019 RTW collection and has actually already been worn on a red carpet, by Gina Rodriguez. I don’t think that would mean much to Bryce. I would style the look differently for Bryce than Gina did. I think that for Bryce that this gown should be styled with a big bun updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of red Francesco Russo cross strap pointed toe d’orsay pumps, and a vintage white diamond and ruby cluster earrings from Beladora. It would easily be Bryce’s best red carpet moment ever. Kristen Wiig hasn’t made a lot of red carpet appearances in the last couple of years, but when she has they have been MOMENTS. So when I saw her name on a list of presenters alongside her Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar co-star I knew I wanted a major moment from her again. This black sequined long sleeve column gown from the Prabal Gurung Fall 2021 RTW collection which features a jewel neckline, strong shoulders, crystal bow details, and a thigh high split is one of the few looks from this collection that I really love and I feel like Kristen would definitely make it come to life beautifully. It is a major 80’s moment and I would really run with it for Kristen. A side parted sleek pixie, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Saint Laurent ‘Hall’ ankle strap silver crystal embellished sandals, and DAZZLING white diamond Amwaj High Jewelry waterfall earrings would pull this look together beautifully. Sofia Carson will be one of the hosts on the “red carpet” for the network like she did last year and I want to see her bring a DRAMATIC moment to the red carpet. She is a huge fan of Giambattista Valli so it was a no-brainier for me to turn to the label once again opting for this black ruffled halter gown with an open back and a-line skirt. It is glamorous, avant garde, and dramatic all rolled together so it checks all of Sofia’s boxes and would be a major red carpet moment especially if styled with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold glossy red lips, a pair of black Amina Muaddi ‘Ursina 105’ pointed toe pumps with a crystal embellished strap, and dazzling white diamond and emerald David Morris starburst drop earrings. Finishing out today is the gorgeous Tiffany Haddish. Regular readers are going to be SHOCKED that I am picking a look for Tiffany from D***e & G*****a. I don’t easily turn to the label, but I know her stylist isn’t afraid to put his clients in the problematic brand and despite all of those problems I still love this navy, turquoise, and sky blue color blocked pleated gown with a halter neck, defined waist, a-line, and flowing train from the brands Fall 2019 Alta Moda Couture collection. So when I was looking for the perfect gown for Tiffany and I saw this gown in my archives I knew it would be a perfect fit. She loves a great color moment and I feel like this is here for Tiffany’s major fashion choices as of late. I would style this gown with her shaved head, thick defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of navy crystal embellished Aquazzura ‘Tequila 105’ strappy sandals, and MATEO NY ‘Something Blue’ 14k gold set blue topaz and white diamond drop earrings to really make sure this look is glamour from head to toe.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 10

The news that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has asked all of the Golden Globe Award nominees to stay home and not even gather with the other members of their casts. I really hope that this doesn’t mean more and more stars in t-shirts and pajamas like we saw at the Emmy’s. I really want to see everyone nominated really bring the glamour from home since they won’t be attending in person. I know that is asking a lot, but I am craving big glamour. Julia Garner wore white silk Chanel tank and trousers with loads of pearls to Zoom into the Emmy Awards. She ultimately lost, but I really want to see her give us major edgy glamour for the Golden Globe Awards next weekend. I saw this midnight blue liquid sequin Burberry Pre-Fall 2021 long sleeve column gown which features thumb-holes, and cutouts on the sleeves and definitely think that it would be a really great moment for her to bring to life. I would love to see it on the screen with her signature short curls, defined eyes, deep red lips, and a pair of black Burberry ‘Hove 110’ strappy chunky heel sandals. Now since Zooming in is all about the waist up I would definitely want some statement jewelry so I turned to a major white diamond Messika High Jewelry asymmetric collar necklace to really up the amp of glamour.Like her Ozark co-star Laura Linney also zoomed into the 2020 Emmy Awards and unfortunately I wasn’t all that thrilled with her look either. She made a political statement wearing a “Vote” emblazoned suit from Christian Siriano. He has been one of Laura’s go-to designers for the last couple of years, but for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards where her work on the show earned her a nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama I really want to see Laura work a BOLD fashion moment for her to remotely join the ceremony. I want to see her bring color to the screen and I would adore seeing Laura do so wearing this marigold yellow Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 gown which features cutout details on an an asymmetric neckline and the short puff sleeves, built in belted waist, and a column silhouette with vent at back hem. I have long loved a red head in yellow and I can definitely imagine this gown being a major color on her especially if it was styled with a romantic updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of golden yellow crystal embellished Dolce & Gabbana pointed toe pumps, and dazzling David Yurman ‘Origami’ 18k gold set pave set white diamond multi-ring hoop drop earrings.Riz Ahmed is one of the men who are nominated this year that I feel could bring intriguing menswear fashion moments. I have always loved his subtle approach to pushing the boundaries of mens fashion and I really want to see him give phenomenal moments starting with this dark brown glittered Celine Fall 2020 Menswear tuxedo which features black satin peak lapels and matching trousers for the Golden Globe Awards where his performance in Sound of Metal has earned him his first nomination in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama category. I love this suit and I can definitely imagine it being a wonderful statement. I would swap the silk pussy bow shirt the dress was styled with on the runway swapping it instead for a black viscose Celine classic pleated detail button down shirt, a black skinny tie in satin-effect silk from Celine, and a pair of black shiny calfskin Celine ‘Jacno’ ankle boots to really make this look a major menswear moment. I watched Ratched on Netflix and I have to say I am shocked that in a year I felt had so many great performances that it got love. That being said I always love seeing Sarah Paulson make appearances. It didn’t seem like she put in much effort for the Emmy’s which she zoomed into, but I want to see her bring some major dazzle to the screen for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards where she is nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama. If she were to pull something out of her closet to wear for this red carpet I would love to see Sarah re-wear the emerald beaded fringe detailed Prada gown with a plunging neckline and 3/4 length sleeves that she wore for the Emmy’s the year she won. It was a dazzling moment then and could be again, but if she were to give us something new I would love to see her wear this just presented light yellow LBV Fall 2021 RTW sequin embellished long sleeve gown which features a jewel neckline and ostrich feather details on the cuffs. I was on the hunt for a new look for Sarah to bring to life and I wasn’t loving anything, but the moment I saw this look I knew it was perfect. It would be incredibly chic with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, butter yellow Roger Vivier ‘Mini Broche’ crystal buckle clasp ankle strap peep toe sandals with clear crystal embellished plexi chunky heels, and yellow gold Nikos Koulis ‘Feelings’ collection snake inspired chain earrings with white diamonds.Cynthia Nixon also earned a Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Ratched. I am really interested in seeing what she will be wearing over the next several months as we approach the “And Just Like That…”, the Sex and the City spin off. When it comes to the red carpet there isn’t a whole lot for me to go on in terms of picking looks for Cynthia. I was thinking of an vintage Calvin Klein gown for Cynthia, but when I knew that the plan for nominees was to have them join the ceremony remotely I completely changed my mind. I decided instead to go with this black Gabriela Hearst Fall 2020 RTW single button tuxedo which features braided trimming on the peak lapel blazer and wide leg trousers. It is a simple, yet incredibly chic moment and I feel like it would be perfect for Cynthia to wear for the Golden Globe Awards. I would finish this look with a black Lafayette 148 New York ‘Fielding’ jersey tank, defined eyes, soft nude pink lips, her flared side parted bob, a pair of black patent leather Aquazzura criss-cross strap pointed toe pumps, and a Pomellato High Jewelry ‘Sabbia of Tahiti’ black pearl, gold chain, and diamond y-shaped necklace to make this an incredibly chic moment for Cynthia.

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.

Dream Inaugural Ball for President Joe Biden Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

In this fraught environment I have to say that writing my wishes has been getting me through. I started officially planning my wishes for my dream inaugural ball since the day of the siege on the Capitol. Fashion has always been a bit of escapism for me and that is exactly what we need right now. There might not be fancy balls with star studded guest lists that will happen, but I am going to continue to dream about which looks we might have seen some of the a-list supporters of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. In the looks below you are going to find looks mostly from American designers and one super glamorous blue couture gown. Billy Porter always serves looks so I would have loved to see him bring a major fashion moment to the inaugural festivities this year. Just recently I was flipping through the Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2021 collection and the moment i saw this ivory suit ensemble embroidered with 3-D eye appliques and features a cropped tailcoat with the tails turning into a train I immediately thought of Billy. Is this look anything we would expect to see at a presidential inaugural ball? Oh hell no. But as I’ve said menswear in Washington, DC needs a shake up and this look would definitely do that. Of course the look would need to be customized for Billy to fit his proportions. To finish out this look I would add a black button down dress shirt and a pair of black Rock Owens slip on platform chunky heel boots (a favorite of Billy) to make sure this look screams individuality. In a virtual campaign event Jennifer Lopez, and fiance Alex Rodriguez, sat down with Joe Biden to talk about the importance of voting, especially Latinos. She will also be performing at the Inaugural Ceremony. So yes I had to make sure she was included in my wishes for what could have been a dream inaugural ball. I decided to break away from American designers for Jennifer as she just needs a little bit more razzle dazzle. So I picked this blue metallic silk one shoulder Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture gown with some intricate beaded embroidery and a thigh high split, I also picked a major Elie Saab gown for her to wear for her performance at the Inaugural Ceremony as well. It is inherrantly the sexy glam vibe that Jennifer always brings to a red carpet and I just know that she would have shut down the look down on a red carpet for an inaugural ball. Styled with old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, smokey eyes, glossy ruby red lips, a navy crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Slim Rectangle’ clutch, silver crystal studded PVC Aquazzura ‘Dream 105’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Harry Winston jewels including white diamond and emerald cut sapphire drop earrings and a white diamond and sapphire ‘Crisscross’ ring I know this would have been a glamorous moment from head to toe. Julia Louis-Dreyfus is the final hostess from the 2020 Democratic National Convention whom I wanted to include in my wishes for a dream inaugural ball. (The others are Eva Longoria, Tracee Ellis Ross, and Kerry Washington). Out of the four Julia is my least favorite in terms of style. While her style isn’t bad it is just boring typically. That being said I knew almost immediately what gown I was going to use for Julia’s wish. This simple oyster pink silk Brandon Maxwell Spring 2021 RTW strapless column gown with a thin bright orange bow detailed belt is super chic and I feel like it would have been a perfect moment for Julia to wear for an inaugural ball. Simple waves, defined eyes, soft pink lips, an orange Edie Parker ‘Jean’ marbled-effect acrylic box clutch, champagne Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi 85’ crystal embellished and mesh paneled pointed toe pumps, and one-of-a-kind Irene Neuwirth 18k rose gold set pink opal, fire opal, and white diamond pendant drop earrings would definitely make this look incredibly chic and just the right amount of statement making for Julia. Okay here we go. My wish for Lizzo is one of my favorite of all my wishes for what could have been at the inaugural balls for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Since she really burst onto the scene at the end of last year Lizzo has been encouraging her fans to get out and vote! From Tik Tok and the stage at the Billboard Music Awards to virtual events for the campaign she was really pushing people to do their civic duty; so under normal circumstances I would have been shocked not to see Lizzo in Washington DC for inaugural events. As I was looking for wishes I knew I wanted to use this red satin strapless Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW gown which features a fitted bodice, drop waist, and an asymmetric high low bubble hem and when I thought of Lizzo wearing the gown my heart started to race. It isn’t something we’ve see Lizzo wear before, but I feel like the dramatic glamour is definitely something she would be able to sell with ease. I would style the look with a vintage inspired updo, defined smokey eyes, bold deep red glossy lips, a red crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Hot Lips’ minaudiere, a pair of red crystal embellished Amina Muaddi ‘Karma’ pointed to slingback ankle strap pumps, and Butani jewels including ‘Hypnotic” ruby and diamond wreath hoop earrings and a selection of ruby and diamond bracelets to finish it off in high glam style. “Party in the USA” the hit song by Miley Cyrus made a return to the iTunes charts back in November 2020 thanks to the election of Joe Biden. Miley herself shared a video of Biden and Kamala Harris dancing with the song edited in, and captioned it, “Now THIS is a PARTY IN THE USA!” In an interview with Jimmy Kimmel Miley said that she would love to perform at the inauguration. Well as of now I haven’t heard anything about her performing at the ceremony, but had she gone to Washington for the inaugural events I would have loved to see her do so in her full glam grunge vibe that she has been rocking. I wanted to put Miley in Marc Jacobs, but decided instead of going for something current that I would dive deep into the brands archives. When I saw this black chiffon and sequined slip style dress from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2006 RTW collection I knew I had found the right look. It is the perfect balance of grunge and glamour and I feel like it would have definitely been a superb moment for Miley to wear for an inaugural ball, especially if styled with her signature mullet, thick smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Double L’ strappy sandals, and white diamond Yeprem ‘Inside Out’ double hoop earcuffs. Talking about “Party in the USA” Selena Gomez danced to Miley’s hit song on Instagram Stories after the race was called. Selena has been a voice to make sure you are registered to vote and specifically encouraging Latina’s to use their voices in the electoral process. So yes I would have loved to see her take on Washington DC for an inaugural ball especially if she did it wearing this burgundy jersey Ralph Lauren Fall 2005 RTW criss-cross halter gown. I adore this super chic and glamorous moment and I know that Selena would definitely make it a super chic moment. A sleek updo, defined eyes, burgundy lips, a gold Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ python embossed clutch, burgundy suede Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino 85’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of major Messika x Kate Moss 18k gold set jewels including a pair of broken hoop white diamond earrings with baguette cut drops and an art deco inspired white diamond ring. Rounding out today is a super chic look for Taylor Swift who has been using her voice in politics for the last couple of years. I just always love seeing Taylor so after seeing her really using her voice to encourage people to vote I would have loved to see her in DC for the inaugural events. I went with classic glamour with this pool blue silk chiffon Monique Lhuillier asymmetric draped gown with a thigh high split. It isn’t anything boundary pushing, but I definitely think that for gliding around the room shaking hands (a novel thought isn’t it) and schmoozing that this is a great look for Taylor. A soft romantic updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of silver strappy Jimmy Choo ‘Lilah’ metallic leather sandals, and simple yet glamorous art deco inspired Tiffany & Co. aquamarine and white diamond drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to make this look super glam for Taylor.

Dream Inaugural Ball for President Joe Biden Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, due to COVID-19 the standard Inaugural Balls held on the night the President of the United States is sworn into office have been cancelled. Well. Since we have to continue to dream I am going to still put wishes out into the universe for those who definitely would have and who I would have liked to see attend the balls. Over the next couple of days I will be mixing political figures with stars who were part of the Joe Biden campaign to show you some of the looks I would have loved to see them bring to life for my dream inaugural ball. Today’s looks are all about glamour, elegance, but most importantly American based design labels. As I said yesterday I feel like First Lady Dr. Jill Biden is secretly a real fashion girl and I cannot wait to see what she will be wearing for her FLOTUS duties over the next four years. I would have loved to see Dr. Biden step out onto the stage with President Biden wearing this black Carolina Herrera Spring 2021 RTW stretch fluid crepe trumpet gown which features a sleeveless fitted bodice detailed with bows and a dramatic hem. It is a super glamorous moment and I definitely believe that Dr. Biden would look phenomenal. It is a very Audrey Hepburn moment and I think that styled with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes bold red lips, a pair of black sheer embellished lace Jimmy Choo ‘Love 100’ pointed toe pumps, and simple yet dazzling Harry Winston white diamond and blue sapphire drop earrings that Dr. Biden would definitely have had a winning fashion moment on her hands. For the Vice President Kamala Harris I wanted to play to a couple of different sensibilities. When it comes to dressing Kamala is very matronly for sure. There are people out there that prove that you can be modest and dress “age appropriate” and still embrace the fashion factor. I wanted to play to Kamala’s heritage paying homage to her black and Indian roots with her inaugural ball ensemble. So I turned to a black designer to create the gown which is this bold violet purple silk Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW collection draped long sleeve gown which features a dramatic sash cape. The sash cape gave me a bit of sari vibe and I just feel like this color on Kamala would be amazing. Now where this look would really come together is in the styling. This gown has the possibility to feel very matronly, but with the right styling it would be super chic. A soft updo, defined smokey eyes, dark red glossy lips, purple satin Tom Ford pointed toe pumps, and a nod to her famous pearls with dazzling white diamond and pearl ‘Princess Fantasy’ chandelier earrings from Indian jewelry designer Farah Khan would definitely make this look absolutely PHENOMENAL from head to toe. Pete Buttigieg is Joe Biden’s nominee to be the next Secretary of Transportation and I personally love him. So I felt like I had to include him and his husband Chasten in my wishes for what the inaugural ball could have been. While they might be gay neither Pete nor Chasten are what I would consider to be ‘flashy.’ So I wanted to pick two very chic complimentary looks for them to wear had they attended the inaugural ball. For Chasten I went with something a little left of normal picking a Ralph Lauren tuxedo with a deep purple velvet tuxedo jacket. It isn’t something normal, but I feel like Washington needs some fun infused into their stuffy style. It would stand out in a room full of men in classic black and white penguin suits, but the cut and styling would be kept very classic so I definitely think it would be a perfect look, especially as the plus one of a Cabinet Secretary designate. Now for Pete I went with something a little more classic with a black Ralph Lauren tuxedo that has a cropped jacket inspired by the cut of a tailcoat, without the tails. The look keeps the classic tail coat styling of the low cut waistcoat and the onyx shirt studs. It is a little more military-esque but I feel like it would be a really chic moment for Pete. I cannot remember ever seeing a former First Lady attend the inaugural ball of a new president, but given the fact that I adore seeing Michelle Obama in a gown I knew I had to include her in my dream guest list for an inaugural ball. I always loved seeing what gowns she would bring to life and I went through several options for her to wear for this event. I decided to finish on this black Oscar de la Renta Resort 2021 strapless column gown which features a draped rosette detail down the back. It is a very chic and elegant moment and I know that Michelle would wear it with elegance and ease. A sleek updo, smokey eyes, glossy ruby red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ crystal trimmed and mesh paneled pointed toe pumps, and a statement Bulgari ‘Barroko’ Collection white diamond and emerald high jewelry collar necklace. The necklace is definitely a bit more than we are seeing, but I think it would be the perfect touch to really make this moment major. Eva Longoria was one of the hosts of the 2020 Democratic National Convention and was out on the campaign trail even in spite of the pandemic to support Joe Biden. She will also participate in a prime time inauguration concert special the night of the inauguration, so it would have come as a real surprise to not see her at one of the inaugural balls had this been a normal year. I haven’t loved a look that Eva has worn in a really long time and I would have wanted to see that dramatic diva side of her style on display had she stepped out for a ball. Marchesa was once a go to designer for Eva and I feel like it is time for her to make a return to the brand. I immediately thought of this hand painted pink and white peony print silk Marchesa Spring 2021 RTW one shoulder draped gown which features a relaxed fit, fitted bodice, and a dramatic train detail and know that it would be perfect for Eva especially if styled with a romantic updo, soft smokey eyes, matte rose pink lips,  metallic pink and gold Roger Vivier ‘Vivier Queen Strass’ strappy sandals, and a pair of statement Anabela Chan fuchsia ombre waterfall earrings made of pale rose sapphire, fuchsia pink sapphires, rose tourmalines, and white diamonds.Mindy Kaling did a couple of virtual events for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris over the course of the campaign. Upon the announcement of Kamala Harris as the VP selections Mindy tweeted “Was there ever more of an exciting day? For our entire country of course, but especially for my Black and Indian sisters, many of us who have gone our entire lives thinking that someone who looks like us may never hold high office? We work so hard and contribute to the fabric of our lives in America, & now to see @SenKamalaHarris rise to the top like this? It’s thrilling!! I am filled with hope and excitement. Thank you @JoeBiden. Let’s do this.” So I really would have loved to see her attend one of the inaugural balls. I went with one of my favorite color combos with this red Badgley Mischka Spring 2021 RTW column gown with hot pink puffy sleeves and an intricately pleated bodice and a sweetheart neckline. Mindy has always been one to love bringing color to her looks and I definitely can imagine this being a superb moment. A sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a red satin Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ faceted clutch, a pair of red suede Aquazzura ‘Aria 105’ strappy pointed toe pumps, and some statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including white diamond and ruby paisley inspired drop earrings and a dazzling white diamond and ruby cuff bracelet watch would make sure that Mindy had a phenomenal moment on her hands.

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.

2020 Democratic National Convention Red Carpet Wish List

A lot of people say fashion isn’t and shouldn’t be political. I say they are dead wrong. I’ve honestly missed writing about fashion as it relates to American politics. I’ve had a blackout on the Trump administration because I fervently disagree with the administrations policies. So now that we are into campaign season I am getting excited. From Michelle Obama launching careers of young designers to Barack Obama’s biggest scandal being the tan suit the Obama white house was full of fashion moments. I don’t expect that if Joe Biden and Kamala Harris win the 2020 Presidential Election that they would come close to rivaling the Obama’s, but I definitely think that I will be watching. The 2020 Democratic National Convention, the official kickoff of the final stretch to election day starts tonight and over the next several nights we will see the biggest names in Democratic politics gather around the country virtually to rally their support behind former Vice President Joe Biden and his running mate Senator Kamala Harris. So let’s talk about some of the looks I would like to see worn for some of the speeches that will be given. Starting the list is Senator Kamala Harris, the nominee for Vice President of the United States. She will deliver the Keynote speech on Wednesday to officially accept the nomination for Vice President. I’ve followed Kamala for a while now, but not because of her fashion. So when the announcement came down I did a bit of a dive into what she’s worn for events and as a senator in the Capital to shape what I would love to see her wear. She loves a pantsuit so of course for the speech to accept the nomination I found an amazing pantsuit for Kamala. I love the cut of this grey Altuzarra Fall 2020 RTW melange wool blend suit which feature a wide lapel double breasted blazer and a pair of wide leg pants. It is an interesting take on the classic pantsuit and I feel like it is easily something Kamala would wear. For the speech I would style the look with her signature soft curls, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a teal blue peony watercolor floral print Altuzarra silk button down shirt, a pair of black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Love 100’ pointed toe pumps, and her signature pearl earrings. Now typically on the final night of the convention after the presidential nominee gives their acceptance speech the VP nominee and the families come out and greet the crowd to a balloon drop and explosion of confetti. Due to COVID-19 we know that there will be no crowd. We don’t know what the speeches will look like yet, but I am really interested to see if Kamala will come out and join Joe Biden at the end of the convention. If she does I would like to see her step onto the stage wearing this royal blue Carolina Herrera Resort 2021 long sleeve crepe midi dress which features a draped skirt and a crew neckline. It isn’t often we see Kamala wearing a dress, but I feel like this one is perfect for her. Her signature curls, defined eyes, dark red glossy lips, those signature pearls, and black Christian Louboutin ‘Brandina’ croc stamped calfskin leather asymmetrical sling back pointed toe pumps would put the perfect finishing touches on this look for Kamala. It would make sure the official kick off is done in style. Fashion isn’t what I associate with Dr. Jill Biden. She isn’t a high fashion political spouse, but she always gives us very chic and elegant looks for both more casual and more formal events. I would love to see Dr. Biden wearing two super chic looks for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. For her speech tomorrow night as the potential next First Lady I knew immediately who I would love to see dress Dr. Biden. I feel like she is perfectly slated for Oscar de la Renta and when I saw this azure blue Oscar de la Renta sleeveless midi dress which features an overlay neckline and a flared hem I knew I had found the perfect look for Dr. Biden’s speech. It is a chic off the rack moment and fitting for a future First Lady. Her signature waves, defined eyes, soft pink lips, and a pair of ballet pink suede and patent leather Jimmy Choo ‘Ray’ mid heel slingback pointed toe pumps would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Now for the final night to join Joe on the stage after his speech (hopefully to a hail of balloons and confetti) I went with another off the rack look. I imagine Joe will wear a blue suit that I would love to see styled with a red tie, so to compliment the blue Carolina Herrera dress I picked for Kamala and that suit for Joe I would love to see Dr. Biden wear this white Lauren Ralph Lauren faux-wrap knee length dress which features a v-neck and a barely cap sleeves. It would make a perfect trio of looks especially if styled with her signature waves, defined eyes, nude pink lips, and a pair of white lace Gianvito Rossi ‘Liliane’ pointed toe pumps. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is going to be speaking tomorrow night as well. She has become a huge star since upsetting her district’s long held congressman. She gives major style moments. What I love about her is that she does stay accessible with her fashion. “Get used to me slaying lewks because I am an excellent thrift shopper” AOC has said. When I was looking for the perfect look for her to wear on the stage, wherever it may be, to deliver her DNC speech I knew it had to be accessible. So I went shopping on the virtual racks of Macys.com. Specifically the sale racks. I fell in love with the idea of seeing AOC wearing this black DKNY sleeveless a-line knee length dress which features an electric blue asymmetrical pleated panel immediately. Then I saw the $45.13 price tag and I knew it was perfect. She does live her life to what she talks and  appreciate that. Now I have seen her rock a really good shoe, so I went a little higher end with the shoes picking a pair of electric blue Alexander Wang ‘Rie’ silver studded pointed toe pumps. They are on the pricey side at $360 even at 40% off, but shoes are gold. To finish this look I would love to see her style the look with a sleek bun updo, defined eyes, red lips, and stud earrings. Former First Lady Michelle Obama will take the virtual stage for the DNC tonight. I always love seeing Michelle because she LOVES to play with fashion. I would love to see her give us a bold fashion moment tonight so I picked this marigold yellow Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW draped dress which features batteau neckline, long bell sleeves, gathered detail on the waist, and a side split. It is a bit of a political statement not because of color, but because it is a black designer and a rising star. I would love to see Michelle really go for it with this look styling it with a chic wavy bob, defined eyes, dark red glossy lips, a pair of metallic yellow gold Schutz ‘Sol’ ribbed detail slingback pointed toe pumps, and Mateo NY 14k gold set baroque pearl drop earrings. It would make for a statement fashion moment for Michelle. In addition to all of the political leaders speaking at the convention the DNC will also have a line up of musical acts that rivals what the VMA’s have already announced. Queer icon and Broadway star Billy Porter is among those who have been announced to perform at this years Democratic Convention. I always love seeing Billy as he serves a look no matter if hes walking a red carpet or joining an interview via Zoom. While I went pretty conservative with the looks I picked for the speakers I’ve picked some real FASHION moments for the performers starting with this major yee-haw meets glam grunge red, white, and blue Marc Jacobs Spring 2016 RTW ensemble for Billy Porter. Billy recently covered Buffalo Springfield’s 1967 protest anthem “For What It’s Worth.” I’m betting that he will be joining Stephen Stills who originally wrote and sang that protest anthem. It would be a great moment. I feel like this now archive fashion moment I would love to see Billy pull it out of the archive and bring it to life. Common & John Legend are also going to be performing at the 202 DNC. Now it isn’t confirmed that they are going to perform together, but I would imagine that they will be performing their Oscar and Grammy Award winning song “Glory” from Selma. I decided not to include John this time because of sheer time cuts (I also wasn’t able to include Billie Eilish, Prince Royce, The Chicks, and more it really will be a star studded event) but I wanted to include Common. I’ve always loved seeing she sharp dressed rapper on the red carpet. I love that he isn’t afraid of color or pattern. I gave him that for my wish thanks to this Dzojchen blue and white basket weave single breasted suit with matching shirt. It is a statement suit for sure and I definitely can picture it being something Common would be drawn to. Style it with a pair of black calfskin leather Christian Louboutin ‘Dr Jack’ side laced oxfords to make the look perfect. Vocal powerhouse Jennifer Hudson will also will be performing and I honestly wish I could pick one song to zero in on. She could give us Aretha Franklin performing some of the Queen of Soul’s protest anthems like “Respect,” “A Change Is Gonna Come,” or “People Get Ready” or she could perform her Oscar nominated song “I’ll Fight” from the documentary “RBG.” I’m leaning towards her performing Aretha since she does have the movie where she stars as the late Soul icon. I picked my look for her with Aretha in mind. I LOVE this ice blue sequin Prabal Gurung Resort 2020 one shoulder ruffle gown which features ostrich feather trim and a hip high split. I can imagine Jennifer giving us full 60’s inspired glam wearing this gown with an avant garde twist updo, thick winged eyes, deep red glossy lips, a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Sophie’ metallic leather slingback sandals, and dazzling Hueb ‘Botanica’ white diamond and aquamarine cluster earrings. It would be a major fashion moment for sure. I can say I’m not exactly sure what Maggie Rogers will be performing at the 2020 Democratic Convention. She is one of the few who I’ve actually seen on the official schedule. She will perform tonight before speeches by Senator Bernie Sanders and former First Lady Michelle Obama. With her voice she could perform patriotic standards like “This Land Is Your Land” or “America The Beautiful.” While I don’t know what she will be performing I know I would love to see her rock her performance wearing this Carolina Herrera Fall 2020 RTW ensemble which features a rounded sleeve with ribbon tied cuffs electric blue tunic with a black rose pattern embroidered it paired with periwinkle blue straight leg pants. It is a meshing of oversized, femininity, and tailoring and I feel that is something that Maggie is drawn to in her looks. Styling it with a loose updo, barely there makeup, and white black Roger Vivier ‘Texan Sabot’ crystal buckle detailed cowboy boot inspired mules would definitely make this a super cool look for Maggie.

The 2020 Democratic National Convention will run today Monday August 17, 2020 through Thursday August 20, 2020.
