2012 Emmy Awards: 'Glee' Cast Wish List

I hope to still see the 'Glee' girls at the 2012 Emmy Awards even though the show is not nominated for any of the major awards. In fact this year there are many new shows but the problem is that most of the shows are male dominated or the females are not fashionistas. Dianna Agron has turned into a fashionista from someone who only wore Carolina Herrera when she first arrived on the scene. I would love to see the white burned detail hater gown it a is still ethereal whilst being extremely edgy at the same time. A gold confetti Edie Parker clutch, gold strappy Jimmy Choo 'Lance' sandals, hair worn in a slight curly up do and simple make up would make this look sing.
Jayma Mays has been the unexpected breakout style star from 'Glee' and she has this sweet style and I think that this mint Jackie O-esque Reem Acra Resort 2013 gown would be an amazing look for the style maven. I think that this look that is not strapless and has a nude illusion netting that allows the lace detail to creep up over the top of the sweetheart neckline of the gown to add a very beautiful detail would look amazing against the milky skin tone and red hair that Jayma has. I think that she would work this gown and end up on everyone's best dressed list with only adding simple diamonds and silver strappy sandals or pumps.
Lea Michele is THE red carpet diva from the show and totally works looks that her character 'Rachel Berry' would run away screaming from. Regular readers of the blog will remember that I put this look in a wish list for Lea to wear just after it walked the runway. Now I am going to help the star style this amazing white Atelier Versace Fall 2012 Couture futuristic bustier gown. I think that Lea should keep it simple by carrying a white or silver clutch (no satin), donning a silver pair of t-bar sandals, and then adding an amazing pair of statement sapphire earrings and a small cuff by her go to red carpet jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
Last year Naya Rivera attend the Emmy Awards and gave us an amazing modern interpretation of Audrey Hepburn in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' wearing a stunning Loyd Klein gown which was leaps and bounds better than the Simin Couture emerald charmuse puff ball gown with a high slit that was a catastrophe on the 2010 Emmy Awards red carpet. This year I would love to see Naya wear this chocolate bronze Douglas Hannant Fall 2012 RTW strapless gown with a bow accented sweetheart neckline. Add a bronze clutch, black pumps, and some chocolate diamond earrings to complete this look.

2012 Emmy Awards: 'Desperate Housewives' Cast Wish List

On October 3rd 2004 ABC television transported viewers to suburbia by way of Wisteria Lane and its new show 'Desperate Housewives.' Since then there have been eight seasons and thirteen years between the beginning and the series finale in May of this year. Whilst none of the cast of the show this year are nominated for any awards in 2012 I would like to believe that they will be there to celebrate their show. Eva Longoria who was the pool boy's mistress in 'Desperate Housewives' is the most likely to attended the event and if she does I would love for her to wear an this amazing fully beaded Georges Hobeika ice blue strapless mermaid gown. Eva has worn Georges Hobeika a few times in the past and has always looked amazing in his designs. Add a silver clutch, silver pumps, a small pair of drop diamond earrings and a small diamond bracelet and this look will look absolutely amazing.
Felicity Huffman looked amazing wearing a nude lame Romona Kevesa gown for the 2012 Golden Globe awards and I think that this asymetical halter neck black Pamella Roland Fall 2012 RTW gown would look just as amazing as the Romona did. I think that this is a classic gown but is still edgy and I love the embellishements that are not too over the top. Add a simple black embellished clutch by either Judith Leiber, Swarovski, or Edie Parker and some black strappy sandals, as well as some statement jewelry by way of earrings and a bracelet and Felicity will look demure and sexy. Anything but 'Desperate.'
Marcia Cross had fallen of the face of the red carpet world until last fall when she arrived at the 2012 ALMA Awards with the rest of her cast. Marcia used to always blow me away wearing designers like Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier, Marc Bouwer, and on many occasions Elie Saab. I would love for her to make another appearance in a gown by the beloved red carpet couturier at this years Emmy Awards. I love this amazing grey, gold and peacock blue chiffon gown with spaghetti straps. A gold clutch paired with gold strappy sandals the look would be complete.
Teri Hatcher is another one of the 'Housewives' who doesn't make regular red carpet appearances but I am hoping to see at the 2012 Emmy Awards. I think that this amazing matte black and embellished black color blocked Monique Lhuillier Fall 2012 RTW gown would be a great choice for her. I think that this gown would just accentuate all of Teri's curves. Add simple black accessories and then some amazing bold sapphire, ruby, or emerald jewelry to make the look POP.
Last but not least we have the former beauty queen and ABC tv show veteran who looks has had leading roles in Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives and has a new comedy coming up on the network called '666 Park Ave.' I am hoping to see a lot of DIVA drama on the 2012 Emmy red carpet from the former Miss America. I think that this maroon deep cute high slit draped Zuhair Murad Fall 2012 RTW gown with a small hip peplum is an amazing choice for the star. Add a gold Edie Parker clutch, gold strappy sandals and some amazing gold earrings and a bracelet would make her shine like the crystals in her tiara or one of the statues that will be handed out that night.

Heidi Klum to wear Roberto Cavalli for the 'amFAR Milano' Gala

Every year during Milan Fashion Week, amFAR the AIDS research foundation hosts a charity gala and there is a common thread every year. Heidi Klum. The stunning German supermodel is always on hand at the event and for this event she always wears Roberto Cavalli. I would love to see Miss Klum wear this white lingerie inspired Roberto Cavalli Resort 2013 gown for the red carpet event. I would add an amazing white chiffon train to this gown to add a little more wow. Some stunning Lorraine Schwartz jewelry and silver Christian Louboutin sandals will complete this ensemble.

2012 ALMA Awards Nominees Wish List

The ALMA Awards celebrates success in Television, Film, and Music. Jennifer Lopez is nominated for her work on American Idol and for her music and I am hoping to see her take a break from her tour for this event and walk the red carpet for this event. Jennifer Lopez has almost exclusively  worn Zuhair Murad for almost all her non-American Idol public appearances this year as well as they exclusively designed all the looks for her tour. So I would not be surprised to see Jenny wear another Zuhair gown for the ALMA Awards. I think that this gold lame Zuhair Murad Resort 2013 gown would be amazing for Jenny. It is not the embellished with crystal, sequins, or feathers look that she tends to grab from them but the gown still shines. Add a pair of gold and black Gucci sandals and a gold clutch and she is red carpet ready.
When it comes to the red carpet Jessica Alba is either a hit or a miss and this year she has really been a hit wearing amazing looks by Gucci, Chanel, Michael Kors, Lanvin, and Versace. I would like to see Jess keep up the great work by wearing this minimalist red and black color-blocked gown from the Narciso Rodriguez Resort 2013 collection with spaghetti straps and side cutouts. I think that this is something that would look absolutely amazing in this modernist gown. Add a black clutch and a black strappy sandals would complete this amazing simple ensemble.
When Naya Rivera first started making red carpet appearances I couldn't even look at her because her outfits were excruciatingly painful, I mean who can forget the can-can streetwalkers quinceanera gown she wore for the 2010 Emmy Awards with the Charo bun? Well since then Naya has really started to wow on the red carpet wearing much more demure and elegant ensembles. One designer that she has discovered is Naeem Khan, who has dressed the 'Glee' star many times this year. I think that for the 2012 ALMA Awards I would love to see Naya wear this black beaded Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2012 gown with a draped back. I think that this is just elegant and sophisticated. Add some amazing splashes of color via of some amazing earring and a clutch an some black strappy sandals.
Selena Gomez is wearing a lot of things lately that are making me question what Justin Beiber is doing to her head. I miss the Selena that gave cute but sophisticated looks not hot pants and bandeau tops. She is nominated for her role in the film 'Monte Carlo' and I am hoping that she revisits youthful and cute for this red carpet with this amazing hot pink Valentino Resort 2013 gown. I think that the simplicity and the cut of this dress as well as the color that make this the perfect youthful choice for the star. Add a hot pink clutch and gold strappy sandals and this look is complete.
Sofia Vergara is an amazing red carpet DIVA, well I don't know if I could say DIVA as she really only sticks to a few designers such as Vera Wang, Carolina Herrera, and Marchesa for all her red carpet appearances. Well it has been a while since the sexy voluptuous Colombian actress has worn a gown by Carolina Herrera so I would love to see her wear this dusty purple-ly silver Fall 2012 RTW gown by the designer. I think that the column style of this gown, the neck line, the waistband, and the color would be perfect for Sofia. A gunmetal clutch, sandals, and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry will pull this sultry and sophisticated ensemble.
Last but not least we have probably my favorite wish. Zoe Saldana always wow's me when she dons a gown on the red carpet. For the 2012 ALMA Awards I would love to see her wear this lime green accented black halter gown with side cutouts from the Giorgio Armani Prive Spring 2012 Couture collection but was shown as an added bonus when he had a fashion event in Beijing this past May. I think that this gown would be an amazing choice for Zoe who will make this look shine. I would add a pair of black pumps and the matching lime green clutch will finish off this look.

2012 ALMA Awards Host Eva Longoria Wish List

 For as long as I have known about the ALMA Awards it has been Eva Longoria who always takes to the stage to host the event. Eva always changes multiple times through out the evening, which will be shown bellow, but always go's for the DRAMA on the red carpet for the event. This year I would love to see her wear this mauve strapless Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2012 mermaid gown. I think that this gown is the kind of drama that Eva tends to go for when she goes big for major events and I think that the gown would look stunning on her. Add some diamond earrings and silver pumps and that is all that will be needed to wear to accessorize this look.
 Most female awards show hosts nowadays will wear multiple looks while hosting. Here are the six looks that I want to see Eva wear while doing her hosting duties. First is this vibrant fuchsia Andrew Gn Pre-Fall 2012 strapless chiffon gown. This gown is something that is bold and would look amazing under stage lights where you would be able to pick up all the details. Next is this stunning teal Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown with a fold bust line, embellished lace side, and a thigh high split. I think that Eva would shine in this dress and not because of the embellishments in the lace shining under the lights of the stage. The final look in this block is this amazing yellow and black splatter print on white Monique Lhuillier Spring 2012 RTW gown with a strapless sweetheart neckline and a side split.
Now to really sparkle while presenting Eva should opt for this gold sequin long sleeved Naeem Khan Fall 2012 RTW deep plunge disco gown. I love this and think that the gold would look amazing agaisnt Eva's skin. Now one designer that I am almost positive Eva will wear is Victoria Beckham because Eva is BFF's with Victoria. I would love to see Eva wear this black sports inspired double halter gown from Victoria Beckham's Spring 2012 RTW collection. And finally we have this amazing burgundy Zac Posen Resort 2013 gown that is just sultry and vamp while still being elegant.

Kate Middleton for the Olympic Opening Ceremony

Kate Middleton is someone who all eyes will be on at the opening ceremony, not because she is an athlete but because she is the worlds foremost fashion plate. I believe that Kate will be in attendance because of reports that she was told that she was not allowed to get pregnant until the fall due to the amount of public appearances that she was going to have to make this summer with the Queen Diamond Jubilee and the Olympics. So I am excited to see what the palace will be dressing the young princess in for these appearances. I would love to see her ear this black, red, and pink Alexander McQueen Fall 2012 RTW dress with a pleated hem line. Kate would look amazing wearing this even though I know that she will pair it with a simple black LK Bennett clutch and black LK Bennett closed toe pumps.

'Total Recall' LA Premiere Wish List

Next Tuesday July 31st the red carpet will be rolled out at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood for the premiere of the new 'Total Recall' film. I am hoping to see two of my favorite red carpet divas wow me as they take the carpet to promote their film. The first one up and the one I am most hoping will not disappoint me is Kate Beckinsale. I have been a huge admirer of Kate's grandiose style and I hope she pulls a 'Rosie Huntington-Whitely' and wears a glamorous gown for the premiere. I would pick this silver metal mesh almost superhero looking gown for the actress to wear on the carpet. Add her sexy full hair, a gunmetal clutch, and gunmetal strappy sandals and I will be singing nothing but high praises for the star as she will have knocked me off my feet.
Jessica Biel has been on a white kick ever since she got engaged to Justin Timberlake. She wore white Elie Saab Couture for the Golden Globe awards, white Chanel for the MTV Movie Awards, and white Christian Dior for the ESPY Awards. I am hoping to see the actress to wear this dusty rose colored Elie Saab Resort 2013 structured gown. I think that this gown would be a simple sexy choice for the star who has recently been working really hard to wow the people who judge what she wears.

My 10 Favorite Looks From Resort

The 2013 Resort collections have all been released and I am extremely excited to see a lot of the looks that were shown on the red carpet. In this post I have picked my 10 favorite looks from the collections and who I initially wish would wear them. First off we have the queen Cate Blanchett to wear this stunning silver, gold, and white geometric metallic Alexander McQueen halter dress. Cate has worn McQueen a few times this year including a gown from the designers Fall 2012 RTW collection for the MET Ball (pictured left). I think that the metallic dress would look absolutely stunning on Cate with her fair skin and blonde hair I think that she would look elegant ans shining in this dress.
Anne Hathaway wore a white Azzaro gown for the 2009 SAG Awards and I can not recall another white moment from the star since. I think that this crystal embellished back Azzaro Resort 2013 white gown would be a great option for the star. Her new pixie cut would look absolutely perfect as there is nothing there to cover up the amazing embellished back.
Zoe Saldana always WOW's when she steps out onto a red carpet wearing Balmain. I think that this gold heavily embroidered dress would look stunning on the Dominican beauty with legs for days. You must have great legs to wear this gown that that Zoe has. I also think that this gold color would look absolutely great against Zoe's caramel mocha skin tone.
January Jones looks absolutely stunning with her new red hair and I am going to kind of do what I hated Katy Perry for doing. I am going to match her look to her hair, its the same but it is still different all at the same time because January has a natural color not pink, blue, or purple. I think that January would look absolutely amazing in this lace print red and white Carolina Herrera ball gown.
Li Bingbing is a face of Gucci in China and has worn the brand loyally since she was named. I think that this pink gown would look amazing on Li. The only thing that I would recommend for her to change is that she should add a matching waist band to define her tiny waist.
Kristen Stewart is making a splash on the red carpet as of late and she has a HUGE promo tour coming up for the final installment of 'The Twilight Saga.' This metallic deep red with back detailing strapless J. Mendel Resort 2013 strapless cocktail dress would be perfect for her to wear for one of the smaller premieres in Asia or Europe. I think that this paired with sexy flowing hair and a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps would shock and awe.
Diane Kruger has already broken into the Marchesa Resort 2013 closet and wore a stunning white and gold feathered gown. I think that this satin ruffled cocktail dress would look amazing on Diane especially if she paired it with a pair of silver spike embellished Christian Louboutin sandals.
I love this amazing blue gingham print blazer which is made into a sexy modern classic with a pair of navy mini short and a classic white crisp button down shirt. I think that this ensemble would look absolutely amazing on Leighton Meester who is always looking for edgier ensembles and I think that this with a pair of Camilla Skovgard or Nicolas Kirkwood sandals and a bold clutch and it would be something that she would look stunning.
Kate Beckinsale is one extremely sexy lady who knows how to make an impact on the red carpet. Whether she is wearing a classic Vivienne Westwood, a sexy Roberto Cavalli, or a sexy Versace she always knocks 'em dead. I think that this gold safety pin embellished black one shouldered gown with a sexy slit would just make the star sizzle.
Last but not least we have this amazing origami folded lace print Zac Posen Resort 2013 for our nations first lady Michelle Obama. This is one of my favorite looks and I think that only Michelle has the elegance grace and personality to pull off this gown. She should wear this for her next state dinner or for the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors.

Haute Couture Wish List: Zuhair Murad

Queen of Old Hollywood Glamour Dita von Teese has donned Zuhair Murad a few times in the past and I would love to see her don the brand once again with some of the amazing designs from the Fall 2012 Couture collection. I would absolutely fall in love easily if she picked up this floral embroidered lace cocktail dress with a ball skirt. I think that the vintage beauty would be one of the few that has the presence on the red carpet to pull off this look.
Kate Beckinsale is another fan of the Lebanese designer and I think that this one shouldered red feather accented gown would look amazing on Kate, as she has a body to die for. I think that this gown is perfect for more of a funkier event like a music awards show.
In direct relation to the red dress you have just seen above is this halter gown also accented with feathers. I think that only one of these looks will be worn and to be honest I would like to see this back gown more than the red. I think that this gown would look amazing on rebel songstress who has a killer body. Knowing RiRi I think that she would add some killer pop of color in some way and not make this just another black gown,
I think that this floral print one shouldered ball gown would be a delight to see on the red carpet and will be snatched up by someone in young hollywood. I think that this would be a good choice for Selena Gomez to wear for a movie premiere.

Haute Couture Wish List: Valentino

 I got major Jolie vibes from the Valentino Fall 2012 Couture collection. So there should be no surprise that Angelina Jolie is the first person to be featured in this post for the collection. I think that this navy long sleeves chiffon gown with a deep draped neck and silver embroidery is something that would look absolutely stunning on Angie and I would praise the day if she were to don this gown.
Florence Welch is a huge loyalist to Valentino as they have lots of earthy flowy styles. I was surprised that Flo didn't wear anything from the Spring 2012 Couture collection but I would much rather her wear this long sleeves ruffled red chiffon gown for her next big red carpet appearance. I almost always love when Flo wears a Valentino gown and am hoping to see many looks on her on the red carpet.
As soon as this back and silver beaded Valentino Fall 2012 Couture draped cocktail dress walked down the runway I knew that it was made for Hilary Swank. Unfortunately she doesn't have any premieres coming up so I am hoping she presents an award at a smaller awards show or attends a charity cocktail gala or sits front row at the Valentino Spring 2013 RTW show in Paris.
Milla Jovovich has to do her promotional duties this coming August and September for her new film, 'Resident Evil: Retribution.' I would love to see Milla wear this several shades of blue color blocked chiffon sleeved gown whilst at one of the premieres for the movie even though I believe that Milla will go more down the sexy Versace route than the demure Valentino road.

Haute Couture Wish List: Stephane Rolland

The first time that Beyonce stepped out in a Stephane Rolland at the 2010 Grammy Awards she landed herself on the worst dressed list, well she recently stepped out out the 2012 BET Awards and redeemed herself in the brand. I think that the two could have a great relationship together and I think that this black and light brown structured and draped alter ego gown is something that would look absolutely stunning on the espresso skinned beauty.
Cheryl Cole is a HUGE fan of Stephane Rolland. She wore the designer many times over her run on the British version of 'The X-Factor' and at each red carpet appearance she has made on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival whilst promoting L'Oreal Paris. I think that this white with light brown hair skirt would look stunning on the recording star.
Paz Vega has worn a stunning Stephane Rolland Couture gown twice this year. Once at the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and another one at the Cannes Film Festival premiere of 'Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted.' I hope to see her in some of the stunning creations from the Fall 2012 Couture collection. I think that this modern twist on a classic 50's gown with white and mocha. I would not have her wear the wood belt though.
Last but not least for Stephane Rolland is this stunning caped tuxedo. I think that this ensemble would be amazing on Tilda who favors these amazing androgynous looks. I know that this look is very her but I think that she would end pup wearing a white button down, and I think that I would be okay with that.

Haute Couture Wish List: Jean Paul Gaultier

Gaultier kind of disappointed me this fall couture collection as there were only like 5 looks from the whole collection that I really liked, but I guess if just one look makes it on the red carpet I guess the collection is a success. I think that this beige and gold strapless gown would look absolutely amazing against the caramel skin tone of Halle Berry.
No one can pull of an edgy Jean Paul Gaultier gown like the stunning supermodel Karolina Kurkova. I think that this black structured bustier cap sleeve gown with a fishnet style fabric would be an amazing choice for KK to make for a music awards show or a film festival.
Kristen Stewart likes edgy looks to the fact that she has never worn a Gaultier design before except for a Vanity Fair photo shoot. Well I think that this year with the final installment of the 'Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2' premiering I think that this would be a great look for the star who has really started to come into her own on the red carpet over the past year. The Victorian color scheme of this gown would look amazing on Kristen
Nicole Kidman is a huge fan of Gaultier, she wore a gown by him when she won her Oscar in 2002 and on several occasions since then. I think that this golden gown would look absolutely amazing on the fair skinned red head. This would be perfect for when she walks the red carpet standing by her husband, Keith Urban, at the CMA Awards or the American Music Awards

Thursday, July 19, 2012

Haute Couture Wish List: Giambatistta Valli

Giambattista Valli's Fall 2012 Couture show was much like stepping into spring in a wonderful botanical garden. The collection featured many floral and leaf type prints in bold pinks and greens with hints of purples. I am hoping that Anne Hathaway will be premiering the musical movie 'Les Miserables' at the fall film festivals and I think that this green and purple strapless ball gown would be a perfect choice for the Rome or Venice film festivals.
Diane Kruger can work anything from a simple sleek minimalist Calvin Klein gowns to grand frothy Giambattista Valli ensembles. I think that Diane would look absolutely amazing in this deep v necked cocktail dress with a large folded bubble skirt. I think that this is the perfect look for an after party for a film festival.
Eva 'The Diva' Longoria always lives by the philosophy that one should go big or go home. I think that this dusty light pink gown with a single one ruffled shoulder would be an amazing choice as it is something that Eva would look amazing in. I would recommend cutting back a few of the ruffles as to not overwhelm her face but over all i think that this is a perfect look for her.
I am surprised that Jessica Chastain has not worn a Giambattista Valli couture gown on the red carpet. Having worn Dior, Armani Prive, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Elie Saab, Gucci Premiere, and Chanel I am shocked that she hasn't snatched up one of these amazing gowns before. I think that this forest green and black one shouldered ball gown would be a great choice for her to make her Valli debut.
