2021 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

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

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

2021 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

Check out all these looks I would have loved to see on a red carpet at a regular Critics Choice Awards. The wishes below are a mix of nominees, presenters, and members of productions that are nominated. I am missing all the glamour and drama of awards season, but I am hoping that there are going to be some major fashion moments tonight.

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.

2020 Deauville American Film Festival Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Tomorrow we kick off my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival, which is confirmed to be an in person event this year, but before I do that I still have have 5 more wishes for the Deauville American Film Festival. It is also going to be among the first of in person events held amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I don’t quite know what the festival will actually look like as Europe has travel restrictions on Americans entering the continent because we suck at social distancing as a whole. So while I am putting wishes into the universe for stars to give us glamor moments in Deauville I’m not holding my breath that there will be a whole host of Hollywood starlets walking the red carpets at the festival. I almost passed on including Dianna Agron in these wishes. Her film Shiva Baby is going to be screening at the festival, but I have honestly fallen out of the love with Dianna’s style. Back in the height of GLEE I loved to feature Dianna in my wishes, but since the series ended she hasn’t been one of my favorites anymore. Now with that in mind my wish for her to bring to life on the red carpet at the Deauville American Film Festival would definitely put her back on the right track. I adore this hot pink one shoulder ruched silk Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW draped gown as it was presented on the runway, but for Dianna I would like to see the gold velvet belt it was styled with on the runway. I feel like this gown with a sleek teased updo, defined eyes, glossy light pink lips, a hot pink Judith Leiber Couture ‘Fizzoni’ crystal embellished envelope clutch, sand pink satin Aquazzura crustal embellished bow heel detailed ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Kwiat ‘American Beauty’ pear and marquise cut white diamond feather like drop earrings would definitely be a major glamour moment for Dianna. Kajillionare premiered earlier this year for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival and is now going to screen at the Deauville American Film Festival. As I was watching the Dior Cruise 2021 collection show online I saw this light brown floaty chiffon caftan style gown which features and intricate embossed leather bustier and Evan Rachel Wood immediately came to mind. While I wasn’t a huge fan of this collection as a whole and it was a regression to more of the same for Maria Grazia Chiuri I feel like this gown on Evan would be a major fashion moment. I always believe that even with the most mundane looks that if they are styled right on the right person that a Best Dressed of the Year list worthy moment could be on our hands. Now I would take this gown style it with a retro glam updo, defined eyes, deep red lips, a pair of nude suede Aquazzura ‘So Vera’ crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a pair of antique gold girandole drop earrings from Kentshire for Evan and I think it could be that simply major moment I am imagining.  We’ve never seen Gina Rodriguez work the red carpet at a major red carpet film festival. I would love to see her make the trip to France to promote Kajillionare at the Deauville American Film Festival. While unfortunately I don’t know if that will be the case. If it is I want her to go full glam for the red carpet wearing this black and white satin Rasario Fall 2020 RTW strapless pleat detailed a-line ball gown. I really believe that Gina would look absolutely glamorous wearing this gown especially if styled with a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ suede and mesh pointed toe pumps, and statement white diamond and emerald Butani drop earrings. Last year The Assistant star Julia Garner caught my eye as one to watch. We haven’t really seen much of her this year except for a navy and white Ralph Lauren jumpsuit at the Berlin Film Festival where she also promoted the same film. So I would love to see her in Deauville bringing the glam to the red carpet. As I was putting this list together I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to see Julia wearing this rose pink sequin Monique Lhuillier Fall 2020 RTW slim fit, column silhouette gown which features a lace-up detail, v-cut neckline and long poet sleeves. It is an effortless glam moment and I believe that Julia would definitely be able to sell it to me on the red carpet. Style it with a curly updo, defined eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, petal pink Giuseppe Zanotti crystal embellished three strap sandals, and vintage art deco platinum set white diamond drop earrings from Neil Lane Couture and I know that Julia would show me why I put her on my ones to watch radar in the first place. Ammonite was supposed to screen at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. When the Cannes officially announced their selection this film was one of the only ones I was really sad we were missing out on a premiere for because of Saoirse Ronan. So when I saw that the film would be screening in Deauville I wanted to make sure I included her. She is always one I am excited to see on the red carpet. She knows how to take risks and really deliver. I went for more of a modern ballerina vibe than an avant garde look for Saoirse opting for this neutral Khaite Fall 2020 RTW ‘Mariah’ tulle midi gown which features a drop-waist silhouette, an a-line pleated skirt, semi-sheer paneling on the waist, v-cut neckline, and butterfly sleeves. This glamorous moment on Saoirse would look absolutely beautiful on the red carpet at the Deauville Film Festival, especially if styled with a sleek asymmetric knotted updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of gold Sophia Webster ‘Dina’ gem studded PVC strap mule sandals, and beautiful multi colored fancy stone and white diamond Bulgari ‘Barocko’ Collection drop earrings.

The 2020 Deauville American Film Festival will open on September 4, 2020 and run through September 14, 2020.

Pre-Fall 2020 Round-Up Red Carpet Wish List

There are a lot of brands that don’t release lookbooks of their pre-collections during the season instead waiting for when the collections will start being delivered into stores. So while now we usually see designers releasing their resort collections in May, June, & July there have been a couple of Pre-Fall 2020 collections released around the Resort 2021 collections. So you’ve already seen me review Self Portrait, Erdem, & Alexander McQueen‘s Pre-Fall 2020 collections and give you a couple of wishes in those reviews, but I have more wishes for some of those labels as well as for brands that I didn’t feel the urge to review. So check out the 48 wishes from Alexander McQueen, Christopher Kane, Marni, Miu Miu, Self-Portrait, Rasario, & Roland Mouret. With red carpets still on pause this is a great escape to the fantasy world of fashion.

So now you have seen all these wishes let me ask you. Which ones do you most want to see come true when we start seeing red carpets happen again?

 

“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” LA Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

Do you think that the Fast and Furious franchise will ever be laid to rest? Well that isn’t likely. The franchises latest spin off Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw focuses on Dwayne Johnson’s character Luke Hobbs and Jason Statham’s character Deckard Shaw. It also adds several new faces I am excited to see join the franchise and as always I am excited to see what Jason’s fiance Rosie Huntington-Whitely will wear on the red carpet at the films premiere in Los Angeles on Saturday July 13, 2019.Eiza Gonzalez is definitely one of my favorite young faces to watch on the red carpet. She really showcased her style last year and I am definitely praying for something major from her on the red carpet at the LA premiere of Hobbs & Shaw. She knows how to deliver sexy and glamorous moments on the red carpet like few others can. I didn’t open my folders filled with runway and lookbook pictures to search all different designers for the perfect look for Eiza to bring to life on this red carpet. I knew immediately that I wanted to see her wearing this pool blue silk satin Rasario Fall 2019 RTW which features a mid calf length, a side slit, and an one-shoulder neckline that explodes into tiers of dramatic ruffles ruffles. The color and the drama of this look is perfect for Eiza and I really do believe that she would just ooze sexy and sophisticated glamour on the red carpet wearing this gown. A sleek updo, defined winged eyes, red lips, nude Rene Caovilla crisscross crystal embellished sandals, and a pair of Hueb ‘Mirage’ cluster earrings in white gold with diamonds and London blue topaz all would compliment this look perfectly. Helen Mirren is always one of my favorite ladies to see on the red carpet. She always loves to have fun with fashion and with an edgy blockbuster film premiere I am really excited to see what she will bring to life on the red carpet. I decided to go for the bold picking this gold metallic lamé animal print Celine Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve midi dress detailed with a dramatic cape and a belted waist. I definitely think that this look is perfect for Helen to bring to life. It has that perfect meshing of quirk and glamour to fit perfectly into Helen’s style. I would ditch the boots that the dress was paired with on the runway in favor of black Celine triangle heel pointed toe pumps with a gold metallic leather cap toe adding a chic pixie style, defined eyes, rose pink lips, and a gold glitter Edie Parker ‘Jean’ clutch to ensure this look is perfect for Helen from head to toe. It would all make for one of my favorite looks from Helen in a while. Vanessa Kirby really came into her own when it came to the red carpet last year. It made me sad her time on The Crown has come to an end, but I didn’t get too sad as I knew that her star was just starting to rise. Now she is joining the Fast and Furious franchise in Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw. I am really excited to see what Vanessa has in store for us for this promo tour. For the films premiere in LA next week I would LOVE to see Vanessa give us sexy elegance wearing this white Antonio Berardi Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve gown which features intricate crystal detailing down the front and side as well as daring cutouts and a thigh high gap on one side. This gown is a little more daring than we typically expect to see from Vanessa, but I feel like this red carpet is the perfect place to help her push her boundaries and this gown does just that. I have been missing Antonio Berardi on the red carpet and I feel like this gown on Vanessa would be a perfect pairing to bring his creations to life on the red carpet. Finish this look with sleek slicked back hair, defined eyes, red lips, red nails, a silver Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ rock crystal embellished clutch, simple white Jimmy Choo ‘Misty’ stiletto sandals, and a pair of absolutely dazzling Lauren Adriana ruby and diamond drop earrings from Fred Leighton and I know that Vanessa would shut the red carpet down. Finishing the list is the ultimate plus one: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. She is always on the red carpet whenever her fiance Jason Statham has a film to promote. I love that because when it comes to fashion Rosie is one of my favorites to see on a red carpet. She brings this sultry and sophisticated glamour to whatever red carpet she walks. On these kinds of red carpets Rosie typically picks a black look. So I immediately thought of this black Burberry Resort 2020 long sleeve sheath dress which features a basket weave design and carwash pleated skirt. It is chic, sophisticated, and sexy. It checks all of Rosie’s typical boxes. Finishing the look with a sleek side parted low bun, defined eyes, ruby red lips, simple black Aquazzura ‘So Nude’ sandals, a pair of statement David Morris Colombian emerald and white diamond chandelier earrings, and of course Jason would ensure that Rosie owns this red carpet.

The LA premiere of Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is expected to take place on Saturday July 13, 2019.

2019 Tony Awards Red Carpet Wish List

2019 Academy of Country Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List

A week from today I am going to kick off my Met Gala wishes so I am going to do my best to fit a lot of the big events that are expected to take place over the next month and cover them in the next 7 days. The 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet is set to take place in Las Vegas this Sunday April 7, 2019 and I have to say that this year I am really excited to see what everyone will wear. This year it seems like is the year where fashion is really embracing country music stars. So while this red carpet is typically full of middle eastern designers and their (sometimes overly) dramatic embellished gown or off the rack top label looks. This year I am expecting some really amazing fashion moments on this red carpet. Bebe Rexha is nominated with her Meant To Be” co-stars Florida Georgia Line and I am really interested in seeing what she will wear on this red carpet. After all the social media drama of Bebe talking about the fact that designers didn’t want to dress her for the Grammy’s because of her size the look she wore was a bit underwhelming with the fact that she picked a gown by Monsoori. Luke Meagher, AKA Haute Le Mode, said it best “I don’t think your size is the issue, I think the fact that your Bebe Rexha is the issue” in reference to why designers wouldn’t dress her. I don’t think Bebe is going to be a muse for Marc Jacobs, Versace, Prada, or even Michael Kors (like Rita Ora and I am sure she gets annoyed with Rita Ora comparisons.) So I decided to stick with the lane of labels I think would actually dress Bebe. I adore this fuchsia Rasario Fall 2019 RTW asymmetrically draped silk satin gown which features a strapless neckline, a fitted waistline, midi-length, and a cascading sash along the side that creates an asymmetrical silhouette and definitely think that a wide range of women could rock this gown on the red carpet, and I think that it would be a really glamorous moment on the red carpet at the ACM Awards for Bebe. It isn’t the quirky or overtly sexy looks we are used to seeing from Bebe, but it is a very chic and elegant gown that I think that she could edge up a little. To do just that I would love to see Bebe style this look with an edgy updo, smokey eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, a pair of black and gold Rene Caovilla ‘Fiocchina’ metallic leather bow detail crystal embellished sandals, and Anabela Chan ‘Midnight Tassel’ 18k gold set rose cut diamond and onyx drop earrings and I think this look would be head to toe perfection. Carrie Underwood also doesn’t wear the top of the line designers on the red carpet. She tends to stick to her middle eastern incredibly embellished designs and honestly I don’t think that is going to change any time soon. So when I was searching for gowns for her to wear on this red carpet I decided to stay in that lane. I turned to Dubai based Syrian born designer Rami Al Ali and this incredibly chic champagne gold Rami Al Ali Spring 2019 Couture sleeveless column gown which features an asymmetrical bodice, plunging neckline, asymmetrically draped skirt trimmed in fringe for the perfect gown for Carrie to wear on this red carpet. It isn’t the most dramatic or fashion moment that I have picked for this red carpet, or for Carrie, but I definitely think that this would be an incredibly chic moment for her to rock on this red carpet. I would style this gown with sleek center parted hair tucked behind her ears, smokey eyes, glossy antique rose pink lips, a pair of gold Giuseppe Zanotti strappy crystal beaded stiletto sandals, and incredible Borgioni rose gold set baguette diamond drop ear jackets to really make this an absolutely glamorous moment for Carrie. Kacey Musgraves is really the one who is changing the level of designer on the red carpet as a country music star. Since she first came onto the scene she has always given a higher level of label, but when she attended the Grammy Awards earlier this year wearing Valentino Couture and a hot off the runway Valentino Pre-Fall cocktail dress to accept her album of the year title, I am really excited to seeing what she will wear on the red carpet at the ACM Awards. She has long been a fan of Versace designs on the red carpet and I would love to see her rock her first couture confection from the brand on the red carpet. I LOVE this champagne, blush, seafoam, periwinkle, and cornflower blue micro-pleated Atelier Versace Spring 2019 Couture gown which features an intricately draped design, an a-line skirt, draped scarves, and a sweeping train (the back is absolutely AMAZING) and definitely think that sometime over the next several weeks we will see it on the red carpet. It could be saved for the Met Gala or the Cannes Film Festival, but if Kacey’s stylist Erica Cloud asked very nicely I think that Lucio (the head of VIP relations for Versace) just may loan this gown out for Kacey to wear for the Academy of Country Music Awards. A sleek updo, defined soft glittery smokey eyes, soft pink lips, blush pink Versace satin platform sandals, and an amazing pair of Irene Neuwirth green tourmaline, pink tourmaline, sunstone, and diamond chandelier earrings all would ensure that this moment is high fashion unicorn glamour from head to toe. Maren Morris has potential to really wow me on the red carpet, but often times I find her really underwhelming. That surprises me as she has the same stylist as Taylor Swift, but the looks that Maren wears are nowhere near the same level. I want to see Maren up her game so I decided to turn to one of the more underrated French designers, Andrew Gn. This black and white Andrew Gn Fall 2019 RTW mini dress which features a floral embroidered empire sleeveless bustier and a velvet-trimmed waistline that blossoms into plumes of ostrich feathers is chic, flirty, and glamorous and I definitely think it would be a perfect option for Maren to wear on the red carpet at the ACM Awards especially if paired with a black Judith Leiber ‘Reflection’ resin box clutch, a side parted sleek bob, defined eyes, red lips, black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Peony’ crystal trimmed satin sandals, and IVY New York unheated sapphire and diamond drop earrings. Rounding out this list is the always fabulous Nicole Kidman. She is almost always on the arm of her hubby Keith Urban at the country music awards shows and some of her best looks have come from these red carpets. In recent years we have seen Nicole step onto this red carpet wearing looks from brands like Alexander McQueen and Michael Kors. I decided to go with something different for Nicole to rock on this red carpet. We have never seen Nicole wearing an Alexander Wang label design on the red carpet before. She did wear one or two looks from the designer when he was the creative director of Balenciaga, but never from his eponymous label. I honestly was originally going to pick this white asymmetrical Alexander Wang Fall 2019 RTW column gown which features short voluminous sleeves for Kacey to wear on this red carpet, but then I really thought about what an amazing moment this would be on Nicole and from there on out I was sold on the idea. A romantic updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Et Voici Et Voila’ lace and satin sandals, and statement vintage emerald and diamond Bulgari drop earrings all would ensure this look is the perfect messing of modern and classic glamour.

The 2019 Academy of Country Music Awards will take place on Sunday April 7, 2019.

2019 Critics Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 12

It has finally happened we have reached my final wish for the 2019 Critics Choice Awards that will take place tomorrow night. The red carpet is definitely one of the more interested in seeing what everyone is planning to bring to the red carpet. This is one of the more casual red carpets of awards season. We see just about everything on this red carpet. Couture, ready to wear, cocktail, jumpsuits, and gowns are all things that we tend to see on the red carpet. Kristen Bell wore a very simple blush pink Zuhair Murad pleated gown for the Golden Globe Awards last weekend. I want to see her take to the red carpet tomorrow night in something a little more statement making. I love this aquamarine and black Rasario Spring 2019 RTW ballgown which features a velvet bralet bodice, keyhole cutout, thin straps, and a high waisted silk ball skirt and I absolutely believe it would be something that Kristen would be drawn to. Honestly I will feel like Kristen should have swapped her gowns if she wore this tomorrow night, but I’ll love it none the less. A sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, black Gucci ‘Ilse’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Amwaj diamond chandelier earrings would all add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble. Mandy Moore has been MIA so far this awards season so I was excited to see her name on the list of presenters announced for the 2019 Critics Choice Awards tomorrow night. Since she started working with Cristina Ehrlich last year she has been deliver a different level of designer and glamour on the red carpet. She has evolved. As a presenter and not a nominee tomorrow night I would love to see Mandy wearing this silver Oscar de la Renta gown which features a straight strapless neckline, relaxed straight silhouette, ankle length, a gold butterfly embellishment detail at upper thigh with front leg slit, and all over metallic glitter fabrication. The shorter length of this gown is definitely something I think is perfect for Mandy to wear on this red carpet, especially since she is just there as a presenter. Add a gold Rafe ‘Vivienne’ faceted minaudiere, sleek low bun, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of gold Jimmy Choo ‘Misty’ metallic leather sandals, and David Webb elongated pear-shaped green tourmaline, brilliant-cut diamond, and white enamel earrings and I know that Mandy will own this look on the red carpet. I was a little surprised that without a nomination that Nicole Kidman will be on the red carpet tomorrow night as a presenter. I’m honestly a little unsure of what Nicole would wear just as a presenter for this red carpet. It could be a case of she should have saved the oxblood sequin Michael Kors gown that she wore for the Golden Globe Awards. I decided to go for a mix of 40’s and menswear inspiration picking this Alexis Mabille Fall 2018 Couture ‘Spencer’ gown rendered in black and pale pink crepe and features tuxedo inspired bodice with satin collar and split sleeves and a column silhouette because it is just the glamour that I am expecting from Nicole this awards season. The structured gown is perfect for her and I think that with a sleek vintage inspired updo, smokey eyes, red lip, black Roger Vivier ‘Star’ crystal detail satin clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Directoire’ cutout fishnet lace and bow detail pumps, and vintage art deco Fred Leighton ribbon style drop earrings would ensure this look is the definition of glamour. Olivia Munn was the host of last years Critics Choice Awards and she will be back on the red carpet tomorrow night ahead of presenting at this years edition of the show. Olivia brings glamour to the red carpet and I want to see her bring a really chic Marchesa moment to the red carpet tomorrow night. I love this very romantic black lace gown which features a sculptural bodice with a peplum waist, a 3 dimensional pink and mauve stamped silk organza petal corsage, and a fluted skirt from the Marchesa Pre-Fall 2019 collection and I think that with Olivia’s glamorous sex appeal that this moment would be absolute perfection. It would be glamour defined with a romantic updo, smokey eyes, matching pink lips, a black Judith Leiber Couture ‘Cherry Cayman’ crocodile box clutch, a pair of strappy black Jimmy Choo ‘Mimi’ sandals, and dazzling vintage floral diamond cluster earrings from Beladora.

The 2019 Critics Choice Awards will take place on Sunday January 13, 2019.

2019 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 10

The last set of wishes I have for today features a presenter, some plus ones, and a guest of a nominated film. We are finally hearing some of the presenters being announced and with each tweet that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and I keep getting more and more excited about what Sunday night will bring. I am expecting lots of drama and glamour following last years red carpet protest wearing all black. I am ready to see stars bring bring lots of bold moments this year. I have mentioned that according to my history in my Best Dressed of the Year lists that it seems like every other year a look from the Golden Globe Awards makes the list, and this is the (according to history) year for us to see a major Best Dressed of the Year worthy moment on this red carpet. Catherine Zeta Jones won’t just be on the red carpet on Sunday night as a plus one to her husband Michael Douglas (who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy) but she is also confirmed as one of the many presenters over the night. I changed my mind at the last minute about what I wanted to see Catherine wear, even before she was announced as a presenter. I honestly don’t even remember what gown I originally picked for her. I guess that proves that I was right to change it. I love the idea of Catherine wearing this rich grape purple Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture strapless draped gown which features a cape detail off one shoulder, gathered detail at the waist, and a center split on this red carpet. I know it is a glamorous moment all on its own, but I really do think that the sex appeal that Catherine brings into every look would just really ooze into this look. Old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, matching purple Marskinryyppy ‘Pauwau’ sandals, and a selection of deGrisogono High Jewelry including a pair of amethyst and pink ruby drop earrings and an amethyst, diamond, & ruby cocktail ring to really ensure that Catherine exudes glamour on this red carpet. I was expecting Irina Shayk to step out on the red carpet over the course of the promotional tour to help celebrate her partner Bradley Cooper celebrate his film. She did step out for the films first premiere at the Venice Film Festival, but since then we haven’t seen the two together on the red carpet. We might see that change tonight on the red carpet at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala, but if we don’t I am almost expecting her to join Bradley on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. He is one of the favorites to take home the Best Director trophy and is definitely a real contender for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama trophy too. I would love to see Irina bring sexy glamour to this red carpet opting for this gold Roberto Cavalli Couture strapless column gown which features intricate beaded embroidery, draped beaded fringe on the bodice, and a faux wrap style skirt with a center split. This isn’t a typical Golden Globes gown, but for a supermodel girlfriend supporting her nominated actor/director boyfriend I definitely think it could work. I want to see Irina fight for the Best Plus One and the pair to fight for the Best Dressed Couple awards in the End of the Year Style Awards and I think that this look would definitely put Irina in a strong first footing with this look. Sleek center parted locks tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, dark red lips, a pair of gold Christian Louboutin ‘Spikko’ spike studded PVC pointed toe ankle wrap pumps, and Tiffany & Co. by Jean Schlumberger diamond and emerald floral cluster earrings would all add the perfect finishing touches to this perfect plus one ensemble. Isla Fisher is expected on Sunday night as another of the nights plus ones to support her husband Sacha Baron Cohen who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Isla is one of the more underrated stars in Hollywood and I wonder what she will bring to the red carpet on Sunday night. I decided to go with this sunset pink Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 RTW silk chiffon gown which features a deep V-neck, braided cinched waist, gathered skirt, and a flowing maxi silhouette. I think that against Isla’s peachy skin tone and red locks that this gown would just ensure glamour and elegance on this red carpet especially when paired with old Hollywood waves, bold defined eyes, soft pink lips, a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Clemmie’ box clutch, simple gold Jimmy Choo ‘Mimi’ strappy sandals, and a pair of Martin Katz diamond and emerald drop earrings. I am PRAYING that the gorgeous Laura Harrier will be on the red carpet over the course of awards season to promote and celebrate her film BlacKkKlansman. She might not be nominated or a presenter (at least not yet announced) but I know that she could deliver a really major moment on the red carpet. I am taking a risk opting for this dusty lilac Tom Ford Spring 2019 RTW strapless gown which features a crocodile leather peplum bustier and a draped fringe column skirt. Why is this a risk? Because Tom Ford is notoriously know for being incredibly picky when it comes to who they will dress for the red carpet. Usually they only dress one person for each of the major awards shows. Would the brand dress a rising style star who isn’t nominated or presenting at a major awards event? I don’t know, but I really want to see them embrace this young up and coming actress and style star. I believe that Laura would be able to really sell this gown to me on the red carpet. She would definitely be one of my Best Dressed contenders in this gown. Pair it with metallic lilac leather Tom Ford ‘Padlock’ strappy sandals, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, deep purple lips, and a pair of faceted amethyst Bulgari chandelier earrings and I know that Laura will be able to easily hang with all of the ladies who are nominated and presenting on Sunday night. Leslie Bibb was one of the major contenders last year for Best Plus One as she made the rounds with husband Sam Rockwell as he picked up award after award for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Sam is once again nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in VICE, and as last years winner in that same category is confirmed as a presenter for Sunday nights show. Will Leslie once again make the awards season rounds with Sam? I sure hope so. I went to one of my favorite gowns from the Spring 2019 RTW collections with this black and white Rasario bow detail silk blend gown which features a strapless silhouette with a contrasting skirt, thigh high split, and an oversized bow train down the back for Leslie to wear if she does attend. This gown defines femme fatale glamour and I know that Leslie has what it takes to really make this gown come to life on the red carpet. I don’t really see her pulling an Angelina or a JLo putting that leg out on full display, but I do think that with a vintage inspired updo, smokey eyes, red lips, black glitter Edie Parker ‘Jean’ acrylic box clutch, simple black Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ half d’Orsay patent leather pointed toe pumps, and Harry Winston diamond cluster pendant drop earrings that she would define femme fatale glamour. Last but not least is Zoe Kazan who I am expecting to see on Sunday night supporting her husband Paul Dano who stars in the Best Miniseries or Television Film nominated Escape at Dannemora. I wonder if since Paul isn’t individually nominated if he, or Zoe, will be on the red carpet, but I am hoping that they will. I find Zoe to be a slightly underrated star and any high profile red carpet in a high profile look would help boost her own individual profile. I went for something I didn’t think I would love but the thought of Zoe wearing this nude tulle and embroidered lace Christian Dior Fall 2018 Couture strapless a-line gown has me very intrigued. I am very interested in seeing what Zoe could bring to the red carpet and I think that this gown fits her meshing of bohemia and glamour in the way that I know Zoe love to deliver on the red carpet and would be perfectly complimented with a romantic updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of gold Rene Caovilla crisscross crystal embellished sandals.

The 2019 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 6, 2019.

2018 Gotham Independent Film Awards Red Carpet Wish List

The race to awards season is officially off. We have seen the Hollywood Film Awards and the Academy Governors Awards handed out, and the nominations for the Independent Spirit Awards have been released. The next stop on the road to the Oscars is the Gotham Independent Film Awards. The winner of the Best Picture award, and one other nominee, at the Gotham awards went on to be nominated for Best Picture at the Oscars last year. There were 10 more Gotham nominations that transferred to Oscar nominations, two of which turned into Oscar wins. While I don’t take much stock in Independent Spirit Award nominations and wins and who will ultimately win an Oscar, the Gotham Independent Film Awards can give us a good nod to just who might be nominated for the most coveted award in Hollywood. I definitely think that we will be seeing many of the ladies who are on this wish list over the course of awards season. I didn’t have enough time to do detailed individual wishes for this red carpet this year, but I definitely didn’t want to not put anything out there. I really believe that this red carpet could hold some really chic moments. I guess we will find out on Monday!
