2021 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

The Grammy Awards are always one of the most fun red carpets of the year. I’ve always been excited to see what the stars will bring and I have to say that is still true this year. I have been quite happy with many of the previous music awards events. I want to see everyone bring GLAMOUR and DRAMA to the “red carpet” at the Grammy Awards this year, whatever it will look like. I have some major moments in my wishes this year and several of them are in today’s set. Are you ready to get into them with me? Ariana Grande is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance with Lady Gaga for their hit song Rain On Me. It is the only nomination Ari earned this year and she is not performing. What does that mean? Well I would say that means that we won’t be seeing her on a red carpet this year, but with the whole “red carpet from home” idea we’ve seen I hope that she will serve up a chic look on Instagram. When thinking about what I would love to see Ari wear for the Grammy’s red carpet I thought that going short with this sleeveless ice blue Elie Saab Spring 2021 Couture halter skater style dress with intricate beaded floral embroidery, an a line skirt covered in feathers, and a tulle train would be perfect. It’s fun, flirty, and a little ice capades-y and I think those are all thinks that are perfectly in tune with Ariana’s style. I think with her signature high pony, defined winged cat eyes, rose pink lips, silver crystal embellished PVC Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ ankle wrap sandals, and a pair of white diamond Butani cluster earrings that this look would scream youthful, flirty glamour from head to toe. I’ve been so excited about what Doja Cat would wear for the Grammy’s since I started to get to know her style over the fall. She has rocked major moments from Versace, Givenchy, Vivienne Westwood, and Georges Hobeika Haute Couture for the different music award shows last fall and it is just leaving me really excited to see what the Record of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Solo Pop Performance nominee will bring to the Grammy’s, especially since she will be there in person as a performer. I went for two looks one for the “red carpet” and one for the stage to accept any award that she might take home. For the red carpet I’ve had my heart set on this white and silver Viktor & Rolf Spring 2021 Couture ensemble which features a heavily embellished bralet over a cropped white puffy sleeve button down and a high waisted tiered ball skirt since I first saw it. I feel like this gown is the perfect meshing of 80’s DRAMA and sex appeal in a very modern way. Doja is a fashion chameleon and I feel like she could definitely make it work. I would style this ensemble with a sleet retro inspired updo, defined eyes, wine red lined matte red lips, a pair of white Amina Muaddi ‘Zula’ PVC-trimmed and white leather strappy sandals, and a selection of major Lorraine Schwartz jewels including ‘Lightning bolt’ white diamond cluster earrings, a halo set three stone white diamond ring, a white diamond spear head coil ring, and a halo set marquis cut white diamond cocktail ring. Now all that being said I would say that after Doja was virtually front row at the Givenchy Fall 2021 RTW collection presentation this week I would imagine that she will definitely be rocking a Givenchy look for the show this weekend. While I would still love to see that Viktor & Rolf look on the red carpet I think that this black crystal embellished slip gown with a beaded fringe hem from the Givenchy Fall 2021 RTW collection would be cool. Now I would change the look up ditching that coat it was styled with and then lining the sheer gown with liquid sequins to really elevate the glamour moment of this look. I would go full classic glam with this look styling it with a sleek fingerwave updo, defined eyes, bold matte red lips, a pair of sky high black Jimmy Choo ‘Max 150’ suede peep toe ankle strap sandals, and even more Lorraine Schwartz jewels including emerald cut emerald and white diamond drop earrings, a Colombian emerald 3 stone cocktail ring, and a white diamond and emerald angular cocktail ring to make sure that both of these would be astonishing moments for Doja to rock for her first Grammy’s red carpet. Justin & Hailey Beiber will also most likely be celebrating the Grammy’s from home since the singer who is nominated for 4 awards isn’t performing this year. The two are notoriously private as a couple and they don’t often do couples appearances. That being said I would have loved to see the couple work the Grammy’s red carpet together this year if it were a normal red carpet. Now the two have like polar opposite styles with Justin very laid back and Hailey a glamizon, but I feel like I picked looks for the two that speak to their individual style, but would compliment each other perfectly. For Justin I turned to the Celine Spring 2021 Menswear collection and this major black, red, and white color blocked leather bomber with gold detailing pair with two tone light wash loose fit jeans. Now the look was styled without a shirt on the runway, but I would add a white Celine ‘The Dancing Kid” loose fit t-shirt to the look as well as a pair of white and beige Celine ‘Blank’ low lace up toe cap sneakers to really make it a cool moment. Now for Hailey I went for super sexy glam with this black and red strapless Tony Ward Spring 2021 Couture intricately beaded sheer tulle column gown with a thigh high split and a built in bodysuit. It would absolutely be something that Hailey would be drawn to and I think it would compliment that Celine look for Justin perfectly. To complete this look perfectly for Hailey I would style this gown with a sleek bun updo with face framing tendrils, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Epic Rose 100’ wraparound ankle strap sandals and a silver pin heel, and a selection of deGrisogono jewels including black diamond and ruby ‘Volcano’ drop earrings and a dazzling white diamond and ruby cocktail ring. Lady Gaga is currently in Rome filming the new Ridley Scott “House of Gucci” movie so I would say that since she is in the production bubble that we will not be seeing her at the Grammy’s this year. She is nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album and I would LOVE to still see her show us a major fashion moment on Instagram celebrating the Grammy Awards. I’ve been  wishing to see Gaga wearing this shocking pink velvet draped Schiaparelli Spring 2021 Couture gown which is draped from a headband and I know that she is really the only person who could sell this moment to me. I seriously don’t know who else could wear all this velvet and not get lost, but I know that Gaga would be able to work through this gown and serve up a major moment for me. I would style this gown with the gold glitter Valentino Spring 2021 Couture ankle strap crazy platform pumps, and over a million dollars in Jean Schlumberger for Tiffany & Co. jewels including a vintage 18k gold set white diamond, pink rubellite, and turqouise collar necklace from the 1960’s which sold at Christie’s for $905,000, an 18k gold ‘Bow Tie’ cuff bracelet, and a major 18k gold and platinum set ‘Tapestry’ white diamond and rubellite cocktail ring. It would SCREAM major avant garde glamour from head to toeWrapping up today is the fabulous Tiffany Haddish who is nominated for Best Comedy Album. I don’t know if we’ll see Tiffany at the Grammy’s yet, but I hope to at least see her show up with a major IG moment if she isn’t headed to the Staples Center. While I’ve gone for very avant garde moments for most of the stars in these wishes I wanted to go for something sleeker and more simplistic for her since she isn’t one of the music nominees. I feel like this black sheath dress from the David Koma Pre-Fall 2021 collection which features short flutter sleeves, plexi crystal circles on a peplum busts and a center split. It is sleek and sexy rock and roll glam and I feel like Tiffany would definitely be able to sell this look to me with ease especially if styled with her shaved head, defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, black Christian Louboutin ‘Spikaqueen 100’ crystal embellished PVC ankle strap pointed toe sandals, and Gismondi 1754 jewels including white diamond ‘Niagara’ waterfall cluster earrings and a white diamond ear cuff in both ears.

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 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.

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.

2020 E! People’s Choice Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Happy Friday everyone! The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards continue to inch closer and closer. Today I am adding 5 more wishes to my round up. Details of what this years event will look like aren’t getting a lot of buzz. I am really interested in seeing what everyone has in store for fashion moments. So let’s get into today’s wishes shall we?I want Billie Eilish to bring some fashion to the red carpet. I want to see her get away from Gucci, Chanel, and Burberry and expand her designer dossier. When I was looking at the Marques’Almeida Spring 2021 RTW collection I found myself saying that there were some really good moments I wanted to see Billie wear, and my Fashion Forward Friends podcast co-host Kelly agreed. So when I was thinking of a cool look for Billie to wear on this red carpet I turned to this army green tonal patchwork oversized double breasted suit. It fits her oversized aesthetic, but does so in a way we haven’t seen from Billie in a while. Now while I think it would be cool for her to wear this look sans top like it was presented on the runway that isn’t really that on brand for her. So I would like to see a custom army green sequined sweatshirt made to compliment this look. Her signature lime green rooted black hair styled into easy center parted waves, big full lashes, nude lips, a matching mask, and major Dr. Martens ‘Jadon’ black leather thick sole platform lace-up combat boots would definitely make this a really cool look for Billie to bring to life at the People’s Choice Awards. Doja Cat has been making the the awards show rounds this fall. I honestly had no idea who she was, but the girl is serving looks. At the VMA’s she rocked Versace, at the Billboard Awards she wore custom Georges Hobeika Couture, and most recently for the EMA’s she wore brand new Givenchy by Matthew Williams. She is definitely a fashion girl and I cannot wait to see what more she has in store. She has two People’s Choice Award nominations and I really want to see her on this red carpet. I turned back to Versace. Her first look was two seasons old, but since then shes flexed some major fashion chops so I went to the Versace Spring 2021 RTW collection and this sea inspired ensemble which features a crystal embellished bralet and a wavy structured ruffle mini skirt. This is one of my favorite looks from all of the Spring 2021 RTW collections and I can definitely imagine Doja making it a really major moment. To make it head to toe perfection I would have Doja style this look with a sleek high pony with light blue ombre details, thick defined eyes, hot pink lips, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Corinetta 100’ round silver studded PVC strappy sandals, and Yessayan white diamond floral drop earrings. Joey King is one of my favorite young red carpet fashion girls. She loves to serve a look. So I am hoping that her Choice Comedy Movie Star of 2020 award nomination for The Kissing Booth 2 will take her to this years People’s Choice Awards. If she does I would love to see her rocking this gold, fuchsia, and black metallic chevron chiffon Ralph & Russo Spring 2021 RTW mini dress which features a slim fit, mutton sleeves, open-back, tie-accented waist, and a faux wrap style skirt. I thought of this look almost immediately. I did do a little more looking, but ultimately I decided that this was the perfect look for Joey to rock on the red carpet at the People’s Choice Awards. It is fun, bold, and feminine which are all the boxes that Joey likes to check when picking her red carpet looks. Styling this dress with a sleek center parted hairstyle, bronze defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of gold snakeskin Tom Ford ‘Padlock’ pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of Amrapali jewels including ruby and diamond floral drop earrings and two diamond and ruby surrealist art nouveau surrealist lip rings would make this look super chic. Sofia Carson knows how to bring the drama to the red carpet. The actress, singer, dancer loves volume and drama. She is known for wearing Giambattista Valli on the red carpet and when I saw that she was going to be one of the presenters at the 2020 People’s Choice Awards I immediately thought of this sherbet peach  strapless asymmetric tulle ruffled cocktail dress which features black ribbon detail on the neckline and a boned corseted bodice from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2021 RTW collection. It is such a Sofia dress. It delivers some major Valli drama, while still being the right glam for this red carpet. Styling this look with a soft side parted updo, thick defined eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, black glitter Stuart Weitzman ‘The Amelina 95’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of white and yellow diamond Gismondi 1754 ‘Solstizio’ drop earrings would definitely make this a major fashion moment for the People’s Choice red carpet. Tiffany Haddish is also going to be presenting at the People’s Choice Awards tomorrow night. I go back and forth on whether or not I really like Tiffany’s style. During quarantine she shaved her head and I am really interested in seeing what her style will be. I thought that this lemon yellow and white one shoulder Christian Siriano Spring 2021 RTW pencil dress would be super chic. It is simple and classic in its silhouette and construction, but I feel that is perfect for Tiffany. I think that should this dress be perfectly tailored and styled with smokey eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of white Fenty ‘Date Night’ strappy pointed toe pumps, and simple 18k gold set Mateo NY ‘Small Diamond Axis Hoop’ earrings that it would be one of Tiffany’s best red carpet moments to date.

The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will take place on Sunday November 15, 2020.

New York Fashion Week Fall 2020 RTW Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Closing out my wishes for the looks that came down the runway during New York Fashion Week from the Fall 2020 RTW collections. This season I noticed how even more diverse my wishes were. Designers who typically design for one type of person seemed to open to the most diverse set of starlets who I can picture wearing the looks on the red carpet. Now of course the people I see wearing the looks below are just my personal opinion, but I definitely think that the red carpets over the next several months that will include the Tribeca Film Festival, the No Time To Die promo tour, the Met Gala, the Cannes Film Festival, the Tony Awards, and more will see some major fashion moments. We are already seeing the looks from NYFW brought to life on the red carpet and the looks are phenomenal. I can’t wait to see what the next several months have in store. So enjoy these wishes and stay tuned my wishes for the runways of London Fashion Week are coming for you soon!

2020 Oscar Parties Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

Oscar night is always one of the most glamorous nights of the year. We can see upwards of 200+ looks on the red carpets of Oscar night. Despite the fact that last year I did not actually post a Best Dressed of the Year list an Oscar party look has never made the final cut for a BDOTY List. We have seen some superb moments on the red carpets at Oscar parties. I am specifically remembering Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in a mint green Ralph & Russo Couture at the 2018 Vanity Fair Party. That look was in my final round of cuts for my 2018 Best Dressed of the Year list, though that was a really tough year to make the list. I hope that with some of the people who I am rumored to hear are making an Oscar night appearance will deliver some major moments as I was super underwhelmed with last year. In all of today’s wishes I am featuring some of the looks that are hot off the Paris Haute Couture runways, Pre-Fall 2020 looks I am dying to see on the red carpet, as well as looks from Spring 2020 RTW I don’t want to see lost to the archive, as well as couture archive moments I am still waiting to see on the red carpet. Honestly if just a 1/3 of these could come true then this could be one of the best Oscar nights ever.

Oscar Night 2020 is Sunday February 9, 2020.

2020 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

This is my last set of wishes for the 2020 Golden Globe Awards. I am so excited to see what everyone is going to bring to the red carpet. As I have said the red carpets leading up to this event have been awesome and I am just ready to see everyone bring their A-game to this red carpet. The theme of this set of wishes is drama and glamour. Some of these wishes are definitely more out there than that we are used to seeing from the wearers (ie. the Valentino Haute Couture gown I’ve picked for Awkwafina, the Givenchy feathered eleganza I picked for Dakota Fanning, and the ombre Marchesa gown for Tiffany Haddish) to super dramatic moments for red carpet queens like the Azzi & Osta Couture mermaid gown I want to see on Tiffany Haddish and the major modern yet classic moment from Stephane Rolland I think that Cynthia Erivo would shut down the red carpet in, but I believe that each of these moments would turn me into the heart eyed emoji making me fall back in love with red carpets again.

“Angry Birds 2” LA Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

There are a couple of big movies coming out soon. I will be sprinkling them in over the next several weeks as we gear up for big red carpets like the Teen Choice Awards, Venice Film Festival, Toronto Film Festival, and Emmy Awards. One premiere that I am definitely interested in seeing is the red carpet premiere for Angry Birds 2. Honestly the movie itself doesn’t doesn’t do anything for me, but the cast definitely has the potential do deliver a lot of fun moments on the red carpet. Awkwafina was an unexpected style star that I started to love over the course of the promo tours for Crazy Rich Asians and Oceans 8 last year. She loves to have fun with fashion and I definitely decided to go for a really majorly edgy moment for her to deliver on this red carpet. This black Burberry Fall 2019 RTW ensemble which features a button embellished smock dress which features chain straps, cold shoulders, and long sleeves, a pair of black tights, and a pair of black and white flat ankle boots with crystal fringe is definitely an edgy grunge punk look for Awkwafina to bring to life on this red carpet. It isn’t the typical red carpet look that I would pick for a major movie premiere, but I definitely think that it is perfect for Awkwafina to bring to life on the red carpet. I think it fits her persona perfectly. Chic waves, defined eyes, dark burgundy lips, and a statement black and white diamond Colette ‘Istanbul’ wing ear cuff would make this look red carpet ready and an amazing moment for Awkwafina to bring to life for this premiere.Dove Cameron is one I am definitely intrigued to see take to this red carpet. She was supposed to have a big July headed into August, but the premiere for her Disney Channel movie Descendants 3 was cancelled following the untimely death of co-star Cameron Boyce. I don’t know how his death had affected Dove or if she will be in a good state to even want to make an appearance on this red carpet. I do want to see her on this red carpet because I definitely believe that Dove is one to watch on the red carpet and I feel like she could bring a fun moment to this red carpet. I went with a chic little white dress with this Cong Tri thin strap mini dress which features a ruched hemp with a large bow. It is definitely more of a risky look. Bows can be almost any time they are utilized and I feel like the placement is not the easiest to make work off a runway. That being said I believe that Dove is a perfect person to wear it as she oozes effortless edgy glamour and if she styled it with a sleek center parted hairstyle, defined eyes, red lips, red nails, a pair of white Gianvito Rossi ‘Athena’ feather detail ankle strap sandals, and glamorous Samer Halimeh diamond cluster drop earrings I know that she would shut down this red carpet. Now one I am really interested in seeing on this red carpet is Nicki Minaj. I am wondering in what direction the rapper will bring for the red carpet for this premiere. I go back and forth with my feelings on Nicki’s style. She goes through spurts where I love what she is wearing and then spurts where I hate what she is wearing. I have to say that she has been on a bit of a hate run lately, and I want to see her show up on this red carpet in something that I love. I believe that Nicki would look amazing wearing this florescent orange Christian Cowan Fall 2019 RTW short sleeve sporty crystal embellished dress which features a high crew neck and a side split. It is a bit of a more casual look, but I think with the right styling I feel like it could work. A black to orange ombre high long ponytail, thick winged black glitter eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of gold Christian Louboutin ‘Aknubakta’ platform peep toe strappy metallic leather pumps, statement orange Anabela Chan ‘Aphrodite’ antique crystal, Swarovski crystal, hand-dyed resin cabochon, glass stone, bead, and antique-finished plated brass drop earrings, and a major Anabela Chan ‘Violet Mirage’ violet amethyst, pink sapphire, canary citrine, garnet, tourmaline, white diamond, and coral cabochon cocktail ring would definitely ensure that this look is major from head to toe. Finishing out the list is Tiffany Haddish. When we were first introduced to Tiffany I wasn’t a huge fan of her red carpet style, but then she was introduced to Law Roach and the rest is history. Law turned Tiffany into a major style star and I am very interested in seeing what the two are planning for this red carpet. I went more glamorous for Tiffany than I did with anyone else picking this black leather Ermanno Scervino Fall 2019 RTW strapless midi dress which features a corseted bodice and an asymmetrical tulle trimmed hemline. I definitely believe that the strong and sexy side of Tiffany would own this dress on the red carpet. A glamorous updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black and blue Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Madeline’ feather and crystal embellished sandals, and chic Hueb ‘Botanica’ diamond and tanzanite ear clips would definitely finish this look in the perfect manner for Tiffany to deliver on this red carpet.

I do not have a confirmed date for the LA premiere of Angry Birds 2, but I am expecting to see it happen soon.

2019 Oscar Parties Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

I am super behind with my Oscar party wishes and so I’m not going to give you a whole lot of muss and fuss up here and just get right into all of today’s wishes. Brie Larson just kicked off the Captain Marvel promo tour earlier this week. She looked AMAZING wearing a waxed silk draped custom Oscar de la Renta bustier and fitted cigarette pants. I put Brie on my list of Ones To Watch in 2019 list in my End of the Year Style Awards last year. She is going to have a major year I can just feel it. I had a feeling that Brie, as a former Best Actress winner herself and being in the midst of a major blockbuster movie promo tour, was going to be announced as a presenter at this years ceremony and so when she was announced I was extremely excited. Brie loves to have fun with fashion and can experiment with brands so I decided to take a step out of that normal box that we typically see from her picking this black fully sequined Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2019 RTW sleeveless column gown which features strong shoulders, a gold sequin floral pattern, a plunging squared neckline, and silk hip peplum. I saw this gown and Brie immediately popped into my mind. The only thing I’m not so sure about are the hip padding. I think I would ask the designer to remove them for Brie making this a straight up and down column gown. Add a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Shiva’ suede and mesh cutout pumps, and simple Hanut Singh ‘Tres Raffine’ white sapphire, enamel, and diamond pendant drop earrings and I definitely think that this would be a perfectly dazzling moment for Brie to wear on this red carpet. Gemma Chan might not be announced as a presenter at this years Oscars. I am hoping that after Crazy Rich Asians awards season has ended that we will still see her on one of the Oscar night red carpets. I adore her very feminine glamour on the red carpet and for the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party I would love to see her bring this cornflower blue Ralph & Russo Spring 2019 Couture silk chiffon gown which features a plunging draped neckline and fluid cape sleeves embellished with sequin floral embroidery to life. It is that soft feminine elegance that we are used to seeing from Gemma on the red carpet and I definitely think she could sell it to me on the red carpet. My only hesitation comes as I write this being that the flowing style could be similar to the major mint Ralph & Russo Couture gown worn by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on this red carpet last year, but I don’t think that the two gowns could really be compared. A soft curled romantic updo, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a silver Judith Leiber Couture ‘Slim Slide’ crystal embellished clutch, silver metallic and glittered leather Jimmy Choo ‘Talia’ strappy sandals, and a pair of Norman Silverman diamond vine cluster earrings would definitely make this a perfect soft and romantic look for Gemma. Katy Perry is expected to be on the red carpets of Oscar night. She is one of the co-hosts of the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and I definitely hope that she brings the glamour to the red carpet. For that red carpet I decided to go to a newer designer that Katy has worn a small handful of times, mostly as costumes for her Witness Tour, that just made his New York Fashion Week runway debut: Cong Tri. The Vietnamese designer knows how to do drama, camp, and glamour which are basically all the boxes that you need to check to be able to dress Katy Perry. So for the red carpet at the Elton John party I would love to see Katy show us one of the designers more glamorous looks with this black, blush, and iridescent sequined Cong Tri Fall 2019 RTW strapless column gown which features a dramatic silk bow neckline/sleeve/train. I actually learned about Cong Tri when I saw that Hollywood power stylist Kate Young was styling the show. While she doesn’t style Katy obviously the brands is definitely on Katy’s radar and this super glam moment is perfect for the Elton John red carpet especially if it is paired with a sleek side parted pixie, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ strappy stiletto sandals, and absolutely dazzling Annabella Chan ‘Orchid Citrine’ floral drop earrings made up of pink coral cabochons, orange citrines, pave-set champagne, chocolate and white diamonds. I would imagine that Katy will quick change in between the Elton John party and the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. I decided to really up the drama and the glamour opting for this rose pink to raspberry red Pamella Roland Fall 2019 RTW strapless ballgown which features a bonded bustier bodice with a sweetheart neckline, feather and beaded embellishments, and a dramatic tulle ball skirt. I definitely think this gown is something that we will see on Oscar night and I really believe that Katy would be able to sell it to me. It is a big frothy cupcake gown and I think that if Katy rocked this red carpet pairing this gown with a sleek vintage inspired wave pixie, defined eyes, matching raspberry pink lips, bright pink Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania’ crystal embellished mesh pointed toe pumps, and a pair of one of a kind Irene Neuwirth rubellite tourmaline and diamond pave mixed shape drop earrings that she would definitely have a major moment on her hands. I can almost expect that Black Panther star and former Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o will be out to support her film on the red carpet next weekend. I’m honestly surprised that she hasn’t been announced yet. I am still thinking about what I want to see from her on Oscar night despite that fact. I will probably do something dramatic yet glamorous for the main ceremony. For the Vanity Fair Party afterwards I went for something a lot more fun with this pink and periwinkle Duro Olowu Spring 2019 RTW bias cut gown which features a fringe trimmed cowl back. I knew I wanted to see Lupita wear a black designer on this red carpet and I went round and round to find the perfect gown for her to wear on this red carpet and when I saw this one it really clicked. Duro Olowu is more of an obscure label based out of London. He is known for is intricate prints this gown is a perfect example of his work. It is femininity and glamour defined and I know that Lupita would make it come to life beautifully. I would love to see Lupita wear this gown with a pair of custom dyed to match pink Roger Vivier ‘Broche Vivier’ satin crystal buckle platform sandals, a bun of twists, defined eyes, dark fuchsia glossy lips, and Tiffany & Co. morganite and diamond drop earrings.Tiffany Haddish is expected to attend Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios Oscar Gala next Sunday. I won’t lie to you the first time I heard about this event was last year when Katy Perry showed up on the red carpet wearing a gorgeous Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet. I want to see Tiffany bring some chic glamour to this red carpet wearing this black Alexander Wang Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve tuxedo jacket gown. I love a good Alexander Wang moment on the red carpet and I definitely think that Tiffany has what it takes to really make a gown like this work. She would definitely have some Rihanna vibes wearing this gown. I would finish it with a silver Tyler Ellis ‘Grace’ crystal embellished drawstring pouch, a braided bun updo, defined eyes, red glossy lips, black Alexander Wang ‘Kaia’ PVC detail sandals, and a selection of Messika diamonds including a pair of miss-matched ‘My Twin 1 + 2’ stud earrings and a chic ‘Ritzy’ drop necklace to really make sure that this is a really glamorous moment for Tiffany.

The Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party will take place on Sunday February 24, 2019.

2019 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

The days go by and I get more and more excited for Sunday. We have Hollywood glamour in London at the BAFTA Awards and then the biggest night in music at the Grammy Awards. This year is the perfect meshing of icons and new talent. Many stars will be attending their first Grammy’s and I am praying that they all bring their a-game to this red carpet.Beyonce is a long established Grammy’s icon and I am interested in seeing what she will wear this year. She hasn’t actually walked a red carpet in a really long time instead opting to post her own photos on Beyonce.com and then sneaking in a side door. I have heard rumors that Bey is not actually going to be in attendance this year despite three nominations this year. I would love to see Beyonce bring the sexy Studio 54 glamour to this red carpet (or just the front row of the show) wearing this white Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 Couture suit which features asymmetrical draping, a belted peplum waist, plunging v-neckline, a single cape sleeve, and a thigh high split up one pant leg. It give very distinct Bianca Jagger vibes and I know that Beyonce could easily sell it to me on the red carpet. Fully bouncy curls, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a white marbled acrylic Edie Parker ‘Jean’ box clutch, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Choca Spikes’ studded strappy sandals, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels including diamond lightning bolt cluster earrings and a statement emerald cocktail ring would all make this look head to toe perfection. It was just about a year ago when I first learned who Dua Lipa was when she WOWED me on the red carpet at the BRIT Awards wearing a dramatic ruffled Giambattista Valli Couture gown. Since then she wore the brand again for the American Music Awards and I am hoping that she will make it a trifecta wearing the brand for her first Grammy Awards. She is nominated for Best New Artist and Best Dance Recording. I love me some Dua Lipa music and I believe that she is going to go far. I want to see her bring the drama to this red carpet giving us Black Swan glamour wearing this black Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Couture high low gown which features a ruffled neckline, sequined bodice, and a ruffl0ed skirt and train. I watched this show expecting to find that most glamorous, dramatic, and red carpet worthy moment for Dua to being to life on this red carpet and this one was the ultimate winner. I didn’t want to do the big ruffled ball gown or the classic structure that Dua has already brought to life, but I definitely think that this high low gown would be perfect to round out three major awards red carpets. Add a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Casablanca’ crystal buckle and PVC strap sandals, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of Hueb ‘Luminus’ diamond feather drop earrings and I know this look would be head to toe perfection. John Legend knows how to deliver a really chic menswear moment on the red carpet. Sometimes he goes very classic, but sometimes he pushes the boundaries. I love this burgundy velvet Etro Fall 2019 Menswear detailed with gold embroideries and satin peak lapels. It is such a statement piece that I can definitely picture John being drawn to. I would however keep the styling a little more classic adding a pair of burgundy satin tuxedo pants, a white tuxedo shirt, a matching burgundy bow tie, and a pair of black patent leather oxfords for John. That would make this a real statement menswear moment for him to bring to life on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night.  Kelsea Ballerini has been bringing the fashion to the country music awards red carpets. Usually when I look at red carpet looks for country music stars I look at the Lebanese couturiers, like Elie Saab, Georges Chakra, and Zuhair Murad, but Kelsea has been delivering looks from more than just the standard level of ‘country music designers.’ I was looking for something for Kelsea to wear on this red carpet and the moment I saw this eggshell feathered caped top  and florescent orange high waisted wide leg pants from Valentino’s Spring 2019 Couture collection I thought it would be a really inspired option for Kelsea to bring to life on this red carpet. It is more of an avant garde look than Kelsea has ever worn before, but I honestly believe that she does have what it takes to really make this look come to life on the red carpet. The look itself is such a statement I would keep the styling rather simple adding a pair of gold Casadei metallic leather peep toe d’orsay sandals, a sleek side parted low bun, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of Irene Neuwirth diamond, black opal, turquoise, and fire opal drop earrings. Pink kicked off her Grammy week picking up the honor of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Sadly I think that is the only honor she will be picking up this week. That is a travesty because her album Beautiful Trauma was a truly emotional album for me. I have long waited for Pink to really wow me. She defintiely did that giving me feathered realness in Armani Prive at last years Grammy Awards, but it just didn’t seem like her. I was looking for the right gown for her to wear this weekend at the Grammy’s when I saw this black and white pieced tuxedo gown from Thom Browne’s Fall 2019 Menswear collection. I would never really think of menswear collections as the perfect place to find a gown for a major red carpet, but this gown is PERFECT for Pink. It meshes masculinity and femininity which is totally Pink’s style and it would be perfectly complimented with an edgy coif, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ crepe satin, PVC, and crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and a selection of edgy Yeprem diamonds including a single ear cuff and a whole hand cuff ring. Tiffany Haddish earned her Grammy nomination for Best Spoken Word Album for her audiobook The Last Black Unicorn. I love seeing Tiffany on the red carpet and so I am hoping that she will head out to LA to attend the Grammy’s. I thought about a gown for her, but her category is typically not announced during the main telecast and most actresses that attend that Grammy Awards do so wearing a cocktail dress. I saw this red satin Atelier Versace Spring 2019 Couture asymmetrically draped cocktail dress which features long sleeves, a wrap style skirt, sash detail, and a signature Versace safety pin detail and it just clicked for me. I know that Tiffany would absolutely sell this look to me. Add sleek center parted hair, thick defined eyes, red lips, a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Catchy Two’ asymmetrical peep toe platform pumps, and statement Butani diamond and ruby spiral ear clips and I know it would be a moment to remember.

The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place on Sunday February 10, 2019.

2018 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

The 2018 Emmy Awards are just around the corner and I am really interested in seeing what everyone is going to bring to the red carpet. I want to see everyone really knock it out of the park this year. I feel like the expectations from last year including Nicole Kidman in Calvin Klein, Zoe Kravitz in Christian Dior Couture, Thandie Newton in Jason Wu, Tracee Ellis Ross in Chanel Couture, and Mandy Moore in Carolina Herrera are leaving high expectations for this year. The level of glamour we have seen over the course of this year makes me believe that we will see some really major moments from this years red carpet.Allison Janney has had a major year style wise with her Yanina Couture at the SAG Awards and the Reem Acra to pick up her Oscar. She is nominated yet again for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in Mom and I feel like she will deliver another chic moment on the red carpet at the Emmy’s on Monday. I went for dazzling disco glamour opting to put Allison in this red Jenny Packham Resort 2019 ‘Niari’ long sleeve sequin gown which features a column silhouette with a draped plunge neckline. It isn’t that bold winning moment that we saw Allison wearing during awards season, but since she isn’t exactly the favorite to win I think it is the perfect look for her to wear for this years Emmy Awards. Glamorous waves, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a red crushed velvet Tyler Ellis ‘Lily’ clutch, red Jimmy Choo ‘Misty’ sandals, and a selection of Martin Katz jewels including a pair of diamond and ruby teardrop pendant earrings and a matching cocktail ring would all ensure that this is another really glamorous moment for Allison.Elisabeth Moss has rocked tea length dresses for almost every red carpet over the last year including Prabal Gurung Atelier at the 2017 Emmy’s, Christian Dior Couture at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, and Adam Selman at the 2018 SAG Awards. I want to see Elisabeth really wow me when she steps onto the red carpet at the Emmy Awards on Monday night. She is facing some stiff competition to take home the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her role in The Handmaid’s Tale for a second year in a row. If she does take the trophy home I want to see her doing it in bold style. I created this custom purple Christian Dior Couture strapless gown which features a pleated chiffon bustier bodice, belted waist, and a silk pleated mermaid skirt out of two very different gowns that came down the brands Fall 2018 Couture collection. She hasn’t done a bold color moment like this in a really long time and I definitely think that the Emmy Awards red carpet would be the perfect place for her to do so especially when paired with a romantic updo, defined eyes, pink lips, a matching purple Judith Leiber slide lock clutch, purple suede Marskinryyppy ‘Pauwau’ sandals, and Hueb ‘Apus’ diamond cluster earrings. Judith Light is the queen of the red carpet pantsuit and I decided I wanted to see that continue when she steps onto the 2018 Emmy Awards red carpet where she is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie as her role in Marilyn Miglin in the hit limited series The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. I want to see Judith rock the red carpet giving us some Prince vibes wearing this black beaded Alberta Ferretti Limited Edition Fall 2018 tuxedo paired with a white blouse with a ruffled bodice and cuffs. It is bold and sexy while being a major fashON moment. I think that if Judith rocked this tuxedo with a black velvet Judith Leiber Couture ‘Natalie’ clutch, smokey eyes, nude lips, her signature hairstyle, black Christian Louboutin ‘Twistissima Strass’ crystal embellished mesh pumps, and a pair of Neil Lane blue tanzanite and diamond teardrop earrings that she would be another of my favorite stars on this gown on the red carpet. I have been thinking about what I want Mandy Moore to wear for the 2018 Emmy Awards since she made the rounds with her new stylist Cristina Ehrlich during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week. The first show of that trip that Mandy attended was the Schiaparelli Fall 2018 Couture collection and while she was also at Dior, Ronald Van Der Kemp, Ralph & Russo, and Fendi it was this strapless black velvet a-line gown which features an asymmetrical crystal beaded fringe embellished bustier bodice that stuck in my mind. It isn’t a boundary pushing or really dramatic moment, but since Mandy isn’t actually nominated I think that it would be the perfect couture moment for her to bring to this red carpet. Pair it with old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, red lips, a black Roger Vivier satin clutch with a pearl fringe crystal buckle detail, a pair of black Roger Vivier ‘Sin’ strappy sandals, and a selection of Tiffany & Co. jewels including diamond leaf cluster earrings and a diamond and pearl three globe ring to really ensure this looks is glamour defined from head to toe. At the Creative Arts Emmy Awards this past weekend Samira Wiley took home the trophy for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series and it would shock me if we don’t see her on the red carpet Monday at the Primetime Emmy Awards. Samira has a sense of style that I am always interested to see on the red carpet. Since she won’t be taking home a trophy on Monday night I wanted to go for something bold yet simple. When I saw this lapis blue Cushnie Resort 2019 ‘Belle’ off the shoulder gown which features a square lace trimmed neckline and a fitted silhouette it just made perfect sense for me to pick for Samira. It is that bold glamorous moment that I really think that Samira would be able to sell me on the red carpet. Short curls, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of matching lapis blue Versace platform sandals, and a pair of Hueb ‘Luminus’ diamond and tanzanite cluster earrings all would keep this as that bold moment I am hoping for. Tiffany Haddish skipped attending the Creative Arts Emmy Awards this past weekend, where she won Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series for her hosting gig on Saturday Night Live, instead she was making the rounds at New York Fashion Week with her stylist Law Roach. I am loving what the two have cooked up for the red carpet since they started working together and I would love to see Tiffany jet off to LA for the Emmy Awards on Monday night. Since she would be a guest, and probably get some photos in the press room with her award, I wanted to go glamorous yet edgy so I turned to Brandon Maxwell. Tiffany first wore Brandon Maxwell for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and then she was his guest at the Met Gala and his was the show that she was at when she could have been picking up her Emmy Award. I looked at all different kind of looks for her to bring to life on the red carpet and I fell in love with this bold red Brandon Maxwell Spring 2019 RTW ensemble which features a cap sleeve cape top with a high center split and mock neck and a pair of high waisted wide leg pants. It is a bold choice for Tiffany to make for this red carpet, but I think that if anyone could sell it to me for the Emmy Awards it would be her especially when paired with a red satin Versace ‘Medusa Lock’ box clutch, a sleek bob, defined eyes, matching red lips, and a pair of red Casadei crossover strap sandals.

The 2018 Emmy Awards will take place on Monday September 17, 2018.
