2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

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

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

2021 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

I am getting very excited for what this years Grammy Awards will be. With all the possibilities from in person presenters and performers (and hopefully some winners) to looks from nominees who aren’t able to attend in person on Instagram I am ready for FASHIONS. The Grammy’s always allows for some major fashion moments we wouldn’t see on any of the film awards red carpets during award season. So I am having a lot of fun wit my wishes for the collection as well. Billie Eilish has always had a very interesting sense of style. Last awards season she rocked Chanel, Gucci, and Burberry track suit style looks for all the red carpets she walked. I don’t want to change her, so when I was looking for something for the singer who is nominated for 4 Grammy’s including Record of the Year and Song of the Year and is also performing at this years show I turned to the Valentino Spring 2021 Couture collection. I was thinking about all the cool boxier cut and layered looks from the collection and knew that I would find a great moment for Billie to wear on this red carpet and I found it in this look which features a gold embossed brocade cocoon cape inspired sleeveless hoodie (A COUTURE HOODIE), a sleeveless light but turtleneck, sand colored pleated front trousers, and matching elbow gloves. This moment is definitely the most Billie look that was show in this collection and I really want to see her rock it for the Grammy’s red carpet. According to her Instagram Billie is still rocking that horrible acid green roots thing. I don’t think that would work with this look though. Instead I would like to see Billie give us more of something like an deep ink blue instead. To finish the look I would style the moment with defined eyes, nude pink lips, and a pair of metallic gold Valentino Couture platform derbies. Cynthia Erivo is nominated for Best Song Written for Visual Media for her song “Stand Up” from Harriet. She is a consummate fashionista and so I know that had this been a regular year that she would have shown up on the Grammy’s red carpet serving a major look like she was one of the top nominated artists of the night. The fact that she is also be a part of this years post Grammy special “A Salute to the Sound of Change” would have also boded well for her being on the Grammy’s red carpet. I was going to start looking through my archives of couture runways for Cynthia, but then I saw this gold lamé button back of the shoulder peak lapel gown with an oversized drape and puffer coat backpack turned tiered train from the Paris Fashion Week presentation of the Thom Browne Fall 2021 RTW collection. There are very few stars who I think could pull a look like this off, but despite her petite frame I know that Cynthia could serve this moment up and deliver it on a red carpet and the Grammy’s would be perfect. Now for the lookbook the gown was styled with a signature black Thom Browne tuxedo on top under the gown. I would ditch that. Instead styling the gown with her signature bleached buzzed hair, smokey eyes, deep berry red glossy lips, metallic gold leather Aquazzura ‘Gin Plateau 140’ strappy platform sandals, and a statement Harry Winston white and yellow diamond collar necklace would make it a major fashion moment.Harry Style is nominated for Best Solo Pop Performance, Best Pop Album, and Best Music Video at this years Grammy Awards and I am super disappointed that the regular red carpet isn’t going to happen. Harry has been one of my men to watch on the red carpet because he isn’t afraid to blur the gender lines on the red carpet. Now that being said Harry is still performing at this years show and I hope he serves up some cool looks. I have two looks for Harry one for the red carpet and one for a performance. The red carpet look I’ve picked for Harry is a powder blue Gucci Spring 2017 Menswear shawl lapel tailcoat tuxedo which I would style a little differently than it was on the runway I would ditch the tangerine short wide tie and change the shirt. Instead I would style the look with a classic pleated tuxedo shirt, the cummerbund front he runway, a pair of navy velvet Gucci ‘New Jordaan Horsebit’ leather trimmed logo embroidered loafers, and a major white diamond and tanzanite Gucci High Jewelry heart, arrow, and floral brooch instead of a tie to really make this a cool look for Harry. For the performance, of which I don’t have any idea what it will be, I would love to see Harry hit the stage wearing this raspberry red metallic plaid silk brocade Gucci Fall 2020 Menswear 70’s inspired wide lapel suit. It is definitely something I can see Harry being drawn to and I feel like the subtle sparkle makes it a perfect stage look. Again I would switch up the styling ditching hat, shirt, and sweater from the runway in favor of a blush pink floral jacquard Gucci blouse style button down, a pair of black Gucci ‘Zahara’ silver buckle cowboy inspired ankle boots, and a Gucci ‘Hortus Delicarium’ white diamond and morganite leaf wreath and lion head necklace for a bit of sparkle. Jhene Aiko will host the Grammy Premiere ceremony, which is the party of the show that isn’t televised where they hand out all kinds of awards. In addition to that she is nominated for 3 Grammy’s herself this year including Album of the Year, Best Progressive R&B Album, & Best R&B Performance. So I am really hoping to see her deliver a superb moment on the red carpet. I went for sexy glamour inspired by Grace Jones with this black/gold sequin Rami Al Ali Spring 2021 Couture draped hooded wrap style gown with a major split in the front. I love this super glam moment and I feel like it would just ooze sexy and edgy glam, especially with tight cornrow braids, perfectly laid curled edges, defined eyes, nude glossy lips, a pair of gold and black Casadei ‘Blade Jeannie’ strappy ankle strap sandals, and a statement gold basket weave Vhernier ‘Giunco’ cuff bracelet. The last two wishes for today are for Travis Scott & Kylie Jenner. I would have loved to see the on again off again couple back on the Grammy’s red carpet together. But since he is just nominated for one Grammy this year, Best Melodic Rap Performance, I doubt we will see either of them on the red carpet either in person or virtually. If they do I would love to see them rock superb complimentary moments starting with an industrial grey Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2021 utilitarian inspired double breasted suit with a light grey turtleneck (a menswear trend this awards season), and a red silk flower boutonniere for Travis styled with a pair of black calfskin leather Dior Men ‘Dior Explorer Boot II’ oblique embossed combat boots. It’s a cool yet chic moment and I feel like it would be something that Travis would be drawn to. For Kylie I wanted glamour and sex appeal and I found it in this red one shoulder Atelier Versace Spring 2021 Couture column gown which features a structured origami petal inspired sculptural shoulder detail and a thigh high split. I am obsessed with this gown and while I wouldn’t usually waste this major moment on Kylie I know that if anyone could bring up a major IG red carpet moment it would be Kylie. Taking this gown and styling it with a sleek flip style high pony tail, defined eyes, Kylie Cosmetics ‘Lovey Dovey’ matte lips, simple red satin Versace ankle strap platform sandals, and a selection of Jacob & Co. jewels including a pair of white diamond art deco inspired chandelier earrings and a dazzling pigeon blood ruby and white diamond three row bracelet would make sure this statement look would compliment the Dior on Travis perfectly.

2021 Grammy Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

I cannot wait to see how the Grammy Awards go off this weekend. So far in the midst of the socially distanced the Music Awards shows have done the best feeling “normal”. While some went expected with the regular set up in an empty arena while others went for more virtual continuity with green screen set stages. The Grammy Awards are expected to have multiple stages set up in and around the Staples Center complex where a major list of performers are set to showcase. I am really excited to see what the show will bring. So over the next several days you are going to see wishes for those nominated, performing, and presenting at this years show. I’m crossing my fingers for major things. Kicking things off today is this years most nominated artist Beyonce who has 9 nominations thanks to her Black is King visual album including Record of the Year and Song of the Year. Despite all of those nominations she is not one of the performers this year and I highly doubt we will see her get all dressed up for any sort of live acceptance speech should she win any of those 9 awards. When I was picking looks for the Grammy’s back before they postponed their date I picked this major glamour look which features a sheer Ese Azenabor Couture column gown which features long sleeves, intricate beading, and a plunging neckline which I wanted to style with the major black and white fur stole from the Georges Hobeika Fall 2020 Couture collection. I really wanted to see Beyonce support a young up and coming designer I found through her stylist Zerina Akers @BlackOwnedEverything she started after sourcing items from black labels (in addition to a lot more) for the Black Is King visual album. I thought this gown with that stole would give major old Hollywood vibes with a sleek rose twist retro inspired updo, thick winged eyes, bold red Pat McGrath Labs ‘Elson 2’ bold red matte lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Double L 100’ patent leather & mesh strappy pointed toe pumps, and Lorraine Schwartz jewels including statement drop earrings made up of white diamond halo set Colombian emeralds and a selection of major white diamond rings. It would easily be one of my favorite Beyonce looks in a really long, long time. Especially a red carpet look. I had so many ideas for what to pick for Dua Lipa to wear for the Grammy Awards. I was originally going to go down the route of vintage Thierry Mugler Couture, but then Kim Jones made his debut as the creative director at Fendi. The moment I saw this ivory sheer pearl embellished caped column gown with a halterneck bodysuit and a dramatic train it spoke to me. It was a really cool moment that gives me regal vibes as well as rock and roll glamour. I feel like it would definitely be something that Dua would be drawn to and since she is on the list of performers in addition to being nominated for six Grammy’s including Record of the Year, Album of the Year, and Song of the Year. Her music helped get me through lockdown and I would love to see her walk away with a couple of those golden gramophones as a consolation prize. A sleek updo embellished with a Mikimoto ‘Splash’ akoya pearl and white diamond brooch, defined eyes, glossy mauve lips, a pair of metallic champagne nude Christian Louboutin ‘Mariacar’ crisscross mesh platform sandals, and Mikimoto ‘Bubbles’ akoya pearl and white diamond cluster earrings would turn this look into the perfect glamour moment for Dua to bring to the Grammy’s this year.  H.E.R. has been making the rounds this awards season with nominations at both the Golden Globe Awards and the Critics Choice Awards. Her next stop would be the Grammy’s in a normal year. She is nominated for 3 Grammy’s including Song of the Year and two Best R&B nods. She gave us more casual cool in Valentino Couture look at the Globes and a major floral beaded brocade custom Miu Miu suit for the Critics Choice Awards after wearing neon trimmed Vera Wang Chinese inspired pants looks for the Emmy’s last year. She isn’t performing, but I would still love to see her serve a major drama glam moment wearing this peach rosé avant garde ruffled Elie Saab Spring 2021 RTW column gown which features a 3/4 length cape bodice, intricate crystal embellishment, a thigh high split, and a dramatic train. It isn’t like anything else we’ve seen H.E.R. wear. She goes for more of that left of “expected” glamour for the red carpet, but I feel like this could be a really cool moment especially if it was styled with an intricate cornrow braided bun updo, defined eyes behind orange Gentle Monster ‘Chakra’ gold-toned metal cat-eye sunglasses, glossy nude lips, a pair of metallic orange Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Catia’ strappy sandals, and glamorous A & Furst ‘Bouquet’ rose-cut rose de France, citrine, pink tourmaline, and madera citrine cluster earrings.Megan Thee Stallion has been getting better and better with her red carpets lately. So when I saw that the rapper who is nominated for FOUR Grammy’s including Record of the Year and Best New Artist was going to be performing this year I wanted to make sure I was giving a major fashion moment. I went through all sorts of ideas when I was thinking about what the perfect look would be for Megan I went through a couple of ideas, but I thought about going the custom route going off the rack and picking this bronze Gucci long sleeve gown with a choker detail on the neck, a metallic sheen, a straight fit, a long length, a rear central vent and a chainmail-style construction as the inspiration. How I would customize this look for Megan would be to add a dramatic train and moving the rear vent to become a right side split to really make this a superb fashion moment for the Grammy’s red carpet. It would be edgy, glamorous, and sexy which are all adjectives I would use to describe Megan. I would style this gown with a major high afro bubble puff ponytail, smokey eyes, deep glossy burgundy lips, major black ankle strap Casadei fishnet mesh peep toe platform pumps, and a selection of major Sutra jewels including 18k blackened gold 3 row emerald hoop earrings and a ‘High Emerald’ 18k blackened gold set emerald and white diamond cocktail ring to make sure that Megan is serving a MAJOR moment from head to toe. Finishing off today is the beautiful Taylor Swift who is nominated for six Grammy’s and will be performing this weekend so I am really excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet. Despite multiple nominations since Taylor hasn’t attended a Grammy’s ceremony since 2016 when she won several for her album 1989. So I am really interested to see what she will bring this year. When she dropped Folklore and Evermore last year Taylor seemed to ignite the Cottagecore trend, and a refound love of cardigans. I’ve wanted to see what this would bring in terms of red carpet style, but Taylor has skipped pretty much all of the music awards shows during the pandemic. When I was thinking of something that I feel would fit the vibe of her recent albums, but still give us red carpet I was having a hard time coming up with the right pick. Then I watched the Valentino Spring 2021 Couture show and I immediately fell in love with this light grey slip style gown with a dramatic train paired with a copper brown knit sweater vest that was worn asymmetrically on the runway and I would keep it that way for Swiftie. Finishing out the look with a soft romantic updo, defined eyes, her signature bold red lips, gold metallic leather Aquazzura ‘Celeste’ platform crystal rope knot detailed platform ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Irene Neuwirth jewels including one of a kind ‘Tropical Flower Triple’ drop earrings made of carved mixed tourmaline, a one of a kind three stone ‘Gemmy Gem’ pink tourmaline & white diamond ring, and a one of a kind ‘Tropical Flower Triple’ carved pink tourmaline and sapphire ring would give this look is a major cottagecore glamour moment.

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.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 15

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

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 6

With every passing day I get a little more optimistic that the 2021 Golden Globe Awards will be absolutely fantastic. I really feel like even though nominees will join the show remotely that with presenters appearing live that this show will feel real and authentic. We are still very much in the midst of my nominees wishes for this years Golden Globe Awards. I don’t know what it was about 2020 but despite the fact that there felt like a lack of movies and even new television programs that this years red carpets could have been the strongest in years. The stars in today’s wishes include two who I don’t expect major things from but will continue to wish big, a red carpet princess, a dude who subtly pushes the boundaries, and a new Chanel girl who just might be the brands best ambassador yet. History has already been made at the 2021 Golden Globes just thanks to the nominees in the Best Director category. This year a record 3 women are nominated and two of them are women of color. Chloe Zhao is one of them. She has been lauded since the film made its debut in Venice where it won 3 awards including the Best Picture award. So I am definitely keeping my eyes on her as one to watch this awards season. As I was looking at her past red carpet appearances it seems like Chloe avoids black tie events and really just rocks very comfy and casual looks for photo lines. It makes sense she is more behind the scenes thank in front of the camera glam. But with a possible run to Oscar gold ahead of her I have some superb options in mind to push her through awards season this year starting with this color blocked gold, gunmetal, and bronze sequin Tom Ford Spring 2015 RTW long sleeve column gown. It is definitely going to push Chloe’s comfort zone, but I do think it would be a really cool and glamorous moment for the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. I wouldn’t push the boundaries with the styling keeping with her regular barely there makeup, wash and go hair, black satin Tom Ford ‘TF 105’ pointed toe pumps, and yellow gold ‘Cactus de Cartier’ drop earrings to make this a super chic and glamorous red carpet moment. I would say that this awards season has to be exactly what Frances McDormand dreams of. Even when she made the winning awards season run for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri she never made an actual appearance on any of the red carpets including the Oscars. In fact the only red carpet I feel like she’s actually stopped to pose for in recent years is when she was a guest of Pierpaolo Piccioli’s at the 2018 Met Gala. I wouldn’t expect her to doll up if she is joining the broadcast from home, but hey I can dream right? For formal occasions she has exclusively worn Valentino, mostly customized RTW looks. So when I was starting to pick looks I went shopping on the virtual racks. I found this red Valentino ‘Le Rouge’ silk chiffon long sleeve dress with a flowing pleated a-line skirt. It is a very chic moment and I would believe that this look would definitely be something that Frances would be drawn to. Her short pixie style, no makeup, and a pair of red Valentino ‘Rockstud’ flat leather sandals would finish this look in true Frances McDormand style.After being surprisingly shut out at the Emmy Awards, save for a Directing and Writing nomination, The Great is getting some awards season love. Elle Fanning earned her first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy thanks to her role as Catherine the Great. Regular readers will know that I always LOVE to see Elle Fanning on a red carpet and I am praying that she will go all out for her first Globes nomination even if she does join the telecast remotely. I would love to see Elle give us princess glamour wearing this seafoam green Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture strapless ballgown with pink and blue floral hand painted and beaded detail from neckline to hem. It was one of my favorite pieces from this collection and I would love to see this red carpet princess bring it to life on the red carpet. I would style this moment with a sleek romantic curl detail updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of silver metallic leather Roger Vivier ‘RV Bouquet’ floral strass buckle pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a selection of Chopard ‘Precious’ collection jewels including paisley white diamond wreath hoop earrings and a white diamond and pink diamond ring to make ooze glamour from head to toe. Nicholas Hoult is a man that can give very chic menswear moments. So I would absolutely love to see him give a superb moment at the Golden Globe Awards where he has also earned his first nomination. I would love to see Nicholas, who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, wearing this black Louis Vuitton Resort 2021 menswear tuxedo which features the signature LV monogram flowers embroidered on it. It is a chic moment with some extraordinary details and I think that it is a perfect moment for Nicholas to rock on this red carpet with the runway styling minus the cross body bag and swapping shoes for a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ slip on oxfords.Last up today is an emerging star who is quickly becoming one of the best Chanel ambassadors. It was in the lead up to the Emmy’s we first saw Shira Haas wearing some Chanel looks for virtual appearances to promote Unorthodox. Then she was one of the few in a couture gown for the Emmy’s. All of these looks came courtesy of Chanel. So I have a hard time believing that she would be wearing anything other than Chanel for this years Golden Globe Awards. I was looking at the collections and thought that this sand tulle Chanel Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless gown with features a drop waist, slight v-neck, knotted top, and a beaded macrame bodice. It is chic and bohemian and honestly something that is more Maria Grazia’s Dior than Chanel, but I absolutely think it would be perfect for Shira to wear for the Golden Globes. A chic curly pixie, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of champagne gold glitter Aquazzura ‘May’ strappy sandals, and Chanel Haute Joaillerie “Escale à Venise” asymmetrical 18k gold and white diamond camellia and leaf ear cuff and stud earrings would definitely make this look ooze youthful bohemian sophistication.

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 5

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

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

2021 Golden Globe Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

We got really great news yesterday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the body that presents the Golden Globe Awards, put out a request that presenters are being asked to appear live and in person at either the Beverly Hilton in LA or the Rainbow Room in New York. Now while the presenters will appear live it is reported that nominees will still appear remotely. I wonder how this will work. Usually nominees are among the list of presenters at the event and I am really interested in seeing what will come from this years red carpet. In today’s wishes we have nominees across film and television this year, for those nominated for their work in front and behind the cameras, and a legend who will be honored. Each of these wishes are definitely phenomenal moments I would absolutely adore seeing each look brought to life. Amanda Seyfried earned her first Golden Globe Award nomination this year for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to her performance in Mank. I have always loved seeing Amanda on the red carpet and I would love to see her bring the glamour and drama to the red carpet be it in person or remote. I adore this rose pink Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture one shoulder draped gown which features a dramatic rosette shoulder detail, cape sash, belted waist, and a thigh high split. It is a very feminine approach to dramatic glamour and I know it would be something that Amanda would definitely be drawn to. With a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, deep raspberry pink lips, a pair of nude pink Aquazzura ‘Celeste 105’ crystal-knot grosgrain sandals, and dazzling Cartier High Jewelry white diamond, pink sapphire, opal, and amethyst drop earrings I know that this look would be perfection from head to toe giving Amanda an absolutely glamorous moment. Her role as polarizing conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs. America has earned Cate Blanchett her 11th Golden Globe nomination. In the last year Cate has really put forward in her initiative to wear and rewear items in her closet. We saw this on display most recently when Cate rewore looks from Armani, Esteban Cortezar, and Alexander McQueen during her times as the jury president at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. I wonder if that will be the case should we see her take part in this years Golden Globe Awards telecast. If she does I would absolutely adore seeing Cate pull out the black velvet Armani Prive gown with white ostrich feather cape that she first wore to the 2018 Venice Film Festival premiere of A Star Is Born. I have always felt that gown is the epitome of classic glamour and Cate would definitely be able to sell it to me again. Now If she chose to wear something we haven’t seen her wear I still went into the archives to pick a “vintage” gown for her with this black crepe and velvet long sleeve column gown from the Armani Prive Fall 2008 Couture collection which features a plunging neckline, crystal embellishment at the hip, and a faux wrap style. This gown isn’t statement making, but is another fine example of incredible classic glamour. Now both gowns I would style the same way; with a sleek retro glam updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black beaded lace Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie 105’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling Tiffany & Co. ‘Schlumberger® Star and Moon’ earrings in platinum with round sapphires of over 10 total carats and round brilliant diamonds. Since 1962 Jane Fonda has been nominated for 15 Golden Globe Awards and has won seven. This year the icon will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. This award is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations Board of Governors for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. We can definitely say that Jane has done that from her role in Barbarella to Grace and Frankie. She has been a force on the screen for almost sixty years. I am very interested in what Jane may wear for this occasion. She made a big deal last year at the Oscars re-wearing a ruby red crystal embellished Elie Saab Couture gown first worn in Cannes with a coat that she touted as the last piece of clothing she would ever buy. So I would imagine that Jane will most likely bring something out of her closet to accept this years award. When I was looking at what Jane has worn on red carpets in recent years I thought it would be perfect for her to accept this years DeMille award wearing this electric blue customized Atelier Versace long sleeve fit to flare dress with an asymmetrical neckline, nude illusion cutout details, and a sweeping train (seen above left) that she first wore to the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. It was one of my favorite looks that year I can definitely see myself loving it yet again should she wear it this year, especially switching up the styling with her grey hair in a sleek side parted style, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of electric blue Alexandre Vauthier ‘ANEPUMPBLUE’ metallic leather crystal trimmed and PVC pointed toe d’Orsay pumps, and a bit of sparkle via Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond and sapphire chandelier earrings. Now I also thought that picking something vintage borrowed from a designers archive would be allowed under Jane’s activist stance on clothing. If it is I would absolutely love to see Jane dig in the Valentino archives and snatch out this red long sleeve column gown which features a high neck and an ostrich feather trimmed hem from the Valentino Fall 2001 RTW collection. There haven’t been many who have been able to get into the archives and wear Valentino by Mr. Valentino himself, but I would definitely love to see Jane bring this gown out of the archive and onto the red carpet. Now for the Valentino dress I would love to see it styled with Jane’s signature hairstyle, defined eyes, glossy pink lips, a pair of red crystal embellished satin Rene Caovilla pointed toe pumps, and simple Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond scalloped cluster earrings. Which ever route she chooses I am very excited to see what she will wear. One Night in Miami star Leslie Odom Jr. is one of my men to watch this awards season. While promoting the film from home we have seen him wearing classic menswear looks with a twist from labels like Etro and Moschino. So I am very much intrigued to see what the actor who earned his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to his portrayal of Sam Cooke in One Night in Miami will wear for December. So I was looking for a cool look and fell in love with the idea of Leslie wearing this navy blue textured two button Dzojchen Spring 2021 tuxedo. I love the simple twist on the classic cut and feel like it would definitely be a great choice for him. Now I go back and forth if I want to see Leslie wear the matching trousers with this look for the Globes. I am leaning towards no and going a little more classic with custom solid navy tuxedo trousers with the satin stripe down the side finishing the look with a crisp white shirt, navy satin bow tie, a pair of black patent leather Tom Ford ‘Gianni’ lace-up oxfords, and a midnight blue Montblanc ‘1858 Geosphere’ watch. Regina King is once again nominated for a Golden Globe this year after winning two years ago. This year she is nominated for Best Director for her feature film directorial debut One Night In Miami. We’ve already had a major red carpet at the Venice Film Festival stolen from us. She is very much in contention to take home this trophy so I would definitely want to see Regina give us a major glamour moment. I found that in this orchid purple Antonio Grimaldi Spring 2021 Couture on shoulder gown which features a single blouson sleeve, defined waist, column git, and a sweeping train. I adore when Regina gives us bold color moments and I can just imagine this gown being a major moment on her. This gown would hug all of Regina’s curves. With a sleek updo, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of rich fuschia purple Aquazzura ‘Tequila 105’ strappy crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a selection of jewels from Vanleles including round, marquise, & pear shaped white diamond ‘Bridal Cuff’ hoop wreath earrings and a white diamond ‘Legends of Africa Iconic’ diamond ring we would definitely have a major glamour moment on our hands.

2020 American Music Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

Having watched the People’s Choice Awards this weekend I feel even more excited about the 2020 American Music Awards this weekend. We are hearing some amazing names of performers and presenters and I feel like in addition to the nominees that this could be one of the best nights of fashion since we’ve started social distancing. The looks in today’s wishes are as varried as the artists whom I want to see wearing them. I feel like some of these looks were made for the runway with these women in mind. I think the best case and point in looks being made for the runway inspired by a star I think is this fugly Louis Vuitton Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features an oversized polo with a leather top and a diagonal striped bottom paired with a neon pop art wide leg shorts which I definitely think was made with Billie Eilish in mind. I hate the look because it isn’t my style at all, but I do think it is something that Billie would rock the look on a red carpet and American Music Awards is perfect. I can see it happening with Billie wearing the whole head to toe runway styling including those moon boot meets sneaker things that I just don’t understand, but that is what Billie’s style is to me. Jennifer Lopez shut down the People’s Choice Awards this weekend wearing a super cute voluminous Christian Siriano red bubble dress. Now while I loved that moment I want to see her bring some glamour to the red carpet at the American Music Awards this weekend where she will be performing “Pa’ Ti + Lonely” which are two songs recorded by JLo and Maluma for the soundtrack of their  upcoming film, Marry Me. I knew immediately what dress I wanted to see from Jennifer. I’ve been loving the idea of her bringing this silver asymmetrical Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture fitted sequined and beaded tulle gown since the lookbook was released back in September. I feel like Jennifer would make this an uber sexy glam moment. Now I would leave the veil at home instead opting to style this gown with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, a silver crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture ‘Smooth Rectangle Polaris’ box clutch, silver dome studded PVC strap Christian Louboutin ‘Corinetta 100’ strappy sandals, and a selection of dazzling Harry Winston jewels including a pair of shell inspired white diamond cluster earrings and a vintage white diamond lattice bracelet from 1959. It would make for a major head to toe dazzling moment. Katy Perry will be giving the first ever live performance of her latest single “Only Love” off her new album Smile on Sunday night. I am always excited to see what Katy will bring to the red carpet and this is no different. I always love seeing what Katy will wear. I’ve picked two looks for her in these wishes with one for the red carpet and one for the actual performance. Starting with the red carpet I would love to see Katy give ethereal femininity wearing a raspberry pink to white ombre tulle Georges Hobeika Spring 2020 Couture asymmetrical gown which features a sheer side panel and dramatic caped sleeves. It is more of a feminine and soft look than I feel like we’ve seen Katy wear on the red carpet in a little while and I think it would be a great post pregnancy moment for Katy to bring to life on this red carpet. Style it with a romantic curly updo, defined eyes, raspberry pink lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and dazzling David Morris white diamond and pink conch pearl chandelier earrings to really make this look feminine glamour defined. Now I won’t lie to you I found the performance look for Katy first and thought about it being her red carpet look. I LOVE this red and pink rose printed Richard Quinn Spring 2020 RTW strapless mermaid gown which features a sweetheart neckline and a ribbon asymmetrically draped from the shoulders to the hem with words of love written in crystal beading. I saw this dress while I was actually listening to “Only Love” and immediately fell in love with the idea of Katy wearing it to perform the number. It is the glamorous side of kitschy and that is why I love it for Katy. I feel like Katy would need a boost in the height department so I picked a pair of black sequined Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Bebe’ major platform d’Orsay pumps to add that height (mostly because they would be hidden by the mermaid hem.) A sleek side parted beehive updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, and a pair of simpler white diamond and ruby David Morris chandelier earrings would add the perfect finishing touches. Both moments would give Katy two major fashion moments this Sunday. Megan Thee Stallion has FIVE American Music Award nominations this year and she will be on hand performing at this years show. We don’t know what it is she will be performing yet, I’m hearing it’s a debut single, but I am really excited to see what she will bring to life on this red carpet. It will be her first red carpet appearance since she sat front row at the Coach fashion show back in February. I would love to see her wear the Zuhair Murad Couture gown I featured in my Billboard Music Award wish list, or the Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu gown I picked for her to wear in my VMA’s wishes, or even the Aliette cocktail dress I put in my wishes for the BET Awards, but I had to make sure I put something new into the universe. I’ve been thinking about this fuchsia silk taffeta Christopher John Rogers ruched strapless gown which features a tulip shaped ankle length skirt, a thigh high split, and a MAJOR train for a really long time. I’ve wanted to use it for almost every red carpet, but I just haven’t felt the right vibe yet. Until now. I think that Megan would definitely rock this very 80’s glam moment on the red carpet at the American Music Awards. Styling this look with glamorous old Hollywood half up/half down retro hairstyle, thick winged eyes, deep fuchsia lips, a pair of fuchsia glitter Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Polina’ cross-strap slingback sandals, and a selection of Gismondi 1754 jewels including a pair of pink ruby and white diamond chandelier earrings and a dazzling one of a kind ‘Goddess’ white diamond teardrop collar necklace. Rounding out today’s wishes is a soft glamour moment for Taylor Swift whom is nominated for 4 AMA’s including Artist of the Year. It is also rumored that she will be performing, but as of yet this hasn’t been confirmed. With her “Folklore” era having come completely during the COVID lockdown I’m still on the pastel lightness she was drawn to during the Lover” era. Enter this soft lilac Valentino Spring 2021 RTW ruffled silk chiffon gown which features a blouson silhouette, ruffled trim, round neck, balloon sleeves, nude bodysuit, and a small train. It is a very fashion-y choice for Taylor whom has never worn Valentino before, but I feel like this gown would be a super chic moment for her to wear at the American Music Awards especially if it was styled with a romantic updo, soft silver smokey eyes, bold hot pink lips, lilac suede Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of white diamond Anabela Chan x Diamond Foundry ‘Vine’ floral and butterfly drop earrings.

The 2020 American Music Awards will take place on Sunday November 22, 2020. Check out all of my wishes for this red carpet here.

2020 Emmy Awards Red Carpet Wish List

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