Emma Watson Wish List for the 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower' Premieres

I will say that I had a bit of a hard time trying to decide what to put on Emma Watson for the LA premiere of her new film 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower.' There were like two dresses that I just couldn't decide between and after lots of thought as well as some opinions from some absolutely fabulous friends I decided upon this amazing peachy coral Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture ballerina inspired dress. I think that this is dress always did scream Emma to me and I just needed the extra push to actually make this the dress that I put on the post. I think that this is an amazing addition to this promo tour which does include the amazing Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 dress that I wish that she will wear for the Toronto Film Festival. Add a gold metallic clutch and a pair of gold sandals to complete this amazingly stunning ensemble.
Now when it came to what I want Emma to wear for the London premiere of the film. I would of course pick a Burberry Prorsum dress for the British actress and former face of the brand. I think that this antique print sheath dress with an inch strap from the brands Resort 2013 collection would be the perfect pick for this premiere. I think that to complete this look I would a purple glitter Anya Hindmarch clutch as well as some nude pumps to finish it off.

2012 Venice Film Festival: Zoe Saldana for the Gucci Women in Film Award Ceremony

Last year Gucci held the inaugural Gucci Women in Film Awards during the Venice Film Festival. Zoe Saldana is one of the members of this years jury who will decide which woman will take home this years award. She will of course have to wear a Gucci design for the event and I have picked a few for her. Now this event last year had people wearing extravagant Oscar worthy Gucci gowns and I believe that Zoe will go for an amazing showstopping ensemble. The first thing I would absolutely love to see is Zoe wear this black and gold Spring 2012 RTW one shouldered flapper inspired dress turned into a gown by lengthening the fringe and adding the ever popular black and gold Gucci chain sandals and a black clutch to complete this look which is my favorite. The second look is a peach floral print gown which is a much more laid back look but I think that the coloring would be amazing for Zoe. The last look that I have picked is a black sheer long sleeved Fall 2012 RTW gown with black and dark emerald green embellishments.

Olivia Wilde Wish List for the 'The Words' LA Premiere

Olivia Wilde is going to have to work in red carpet double time as to the amount of effort that she puts into her red carpet ensembles if she is even going to stand a chance next to Zoe Saldana at the LA premiere of 'The Words.' I do not think she is going to have what it takes anymore to do so and I am sure that you can tell this just by the choice in dress I have made for her. I think that this blue Yigal Azroul Resort 2013 dress with sleeve slits and an abstract pattern is really pretty but I just feel that on Olivia this would almost fall flat and not sure if it is the 100% right choice for this premiere but I think that it is what she would most likely pick. Factor in a nude clutch and some black sandals and that is all the credit that I think I can give to her to make the effort towards on the red carpet.

Zoe Saldana Wish List for the 'The Words' LA Premiere

Zoe Saldana is one of my aboulte favorites on the red carpet because she often times wears ensembles that most would not dare to go near for her appearances. This amazing black sequined dress Asian inspired dress with light gold baroque details is perfect for the Dominican beauty to wear on the red carpet for the premiere of her new film 'The Words.' This is a classic silhouette that will only showcase all that the star has to bring in the curve department, and she has some curves. Complete this look with a tight bun, red lip, and some black strappy cage booties, just to add an edge to the ensemble and the look is ready to walk the red carpet at the LA Premiere

Milla Jovovich Wish List for the 'Resident Evil: Retribution' Premieres

I may not care much about any of the 'Resident Evil' films but I do love the films star Milla Jovovich on the red carpet so I can not wait for the premieres of this film. The latest installment of the film series will most likely start with a premiere in LA. For this premiere I would love to see Milla wear this grey and bronze beaded Elie Saab Fall 2012 RTW gown. I think that this gown would look amazing on Milla who would give it a dark and mysterious air about this look with her 20s's style bob and dome red lips as well as a pair of gunmetal sandals and clutch.
In London I would love to see Milla wear this Armani Prive Spring 2012 Couture gown with florescant lime green accents and side cutouts that was presented back in May when Armani showed all his collections in Beijing. I think this gown while yet simple and classic in the black color palette is still quite bold with the lime green crystals and would totally accentuate Milla's dark and mysterious approach to dressing for the red carpet. Add a pair of black Prada sandals and a black Edie Parker confetti clutch and this look is set for the red carpet.
I think that this is one of those films that will have several international premieres as it is a cult classic. The final of the big 3 premieres would be in New York City where I would love to see Milla wear this Donna Karan Fall 2012 RTW red origami gown. This is the pop of color that Milla goes for every so often on the red carpet, like at this years Life Ball in Austria where she shocked wearing a vibrant lime green Atelier Versace gown. The red would look amazing on Milla's tan skin with her dark hair in its 20s finger wave type style, simple dark rimmed eyes, and a bold red lip accessorized with a gold Edie Parker clutch and then a pair of metallic gold strappy sandals and maybe a bejeweled hair band.

2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez is starting to grow out of her fluffy gown phase and embrace sassy and grown up sexy looks on the red carpet. It has been a while since we have seen Selena in anything longer than her knees, so for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards I would love to see her wear this amazing red silk one sleeved Jenny Packham gown with gold Chinese reminiscent embroidery. I think that this gown is something that is totally in Selena's aesthetic as of late and I think that this pretty while still being edgy. I think that with a gold clutch and some gold strappy sandals that this look is VMA ready.

2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Rihanna

Rihanna used to be a HUGE fan of Alexandre Vauthier on the red carpet back in 2009 and 2010 and I am hoping that the star regains her love for the brand for this years MTV Video Music Awards. I think that this white tuxedo jumpsuit with tailored billowy pants, a bold gold chain belt, and a strong shoulder would look amazing on RiRi. I love to see Rihanna in white as it is such a fresh clean look on her and she works it so well and I think that this look has an amazing edge. Pair this with a pair of gold spike embellished Christian Louboutin booties and maybe a punky short black cut for her next hairstyle and this would be ready for the red carpet.

2012 MTV Music Video Awards: M.I.A.

What will M.I.A. wear for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards? Who the hell knows because the rapper/singer has such a random sense of style that you can almost never predict what she will wear for the red carpet. Well I am going to go with this green printed Atelier Versace Fall 2012 Couture gown because the star was seated front row at the designers Paris couture show back last month. I think that of anything in the collection this structured bustier gown with a flowing chiffon skirt is most M.I.A.'s style.I could see her pairing this with some of the metallic nude gold cut out boots that were paired with the Atelier Versace Fall 2010 Couture collection and maybe a custom matching bolero jacket to keep it in her style.

Thursday, August 23, 2012

2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Katy Perry

There are only a few words that can describe Katy Perry; talented, sexy, and quirky are the ones that come to mind right away for me. I think that this yellow and fuchsia Mary Katrantzou Fall 2012 patterned dress. I love that Mary creates all these prints and patterns all on her own using unexpected items. I can not tell from the far away image what it is that created the patterns in this look but I am sure they are not what you would expect. Katy can pull off some of the edgiest looks that walk the runway and I think that this is one of them. Pair this with just a pair of hot pink strappy sandals and her quirky purple sleek bob and this look is something perfect for Katy for the VMA's.

2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato closed 2011 and opened 2012 on such high notes on the red carpet and I have found myself wondering as of late what has happened to her because she has been stepping out in looks that make her look like a stuffed sausage from the 80's. I would like to see her regain some of that glamour that she had before but still keep her edge. First thing shee needs to do is ditch the body shimmer as it is not something that helps her and then she needs to go back to her natural brown hair color. For the red carpet I would love to see Demi wear this velvet red chiffon gown with gold beading. I think that this gown is elegant but can be dressed up to have an edge. Start with a Christian Louboutin spike embellished clutch and then add some spike infused strappy sandals, oh and gold should be the color for both! NO BLACK!

2012 MTV Video Music Awards: Beyonce

Beyonce is a huge mecca when it comes to fashion and I am excited to see what she wears for the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards. It has been a long while since we have seen Beyonce in something full out bling and sparkly and I think that this event is the perfect platform to change this. I think that this silver sequined Marc Bower Fall 2012 RTW dress with a plunging neckline and strong structured shoulders. This dress is a bold statement that Beyonce loves to make. Add just a pair of the Christian Louboutin silver spike and crystal embellished 'Lady Max' sandals are all that is needed to complete this look.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part Six

'Twice Born' is the film that Penelope Cruz will be promoting at this year's Toronto Film Festival. Penelope has a great relationship with Giorgio Armani having worn gowns by the designer many times on the red carpet most recently in a custom Grace Kelly inspired gown at this year's academy awards. For her premiere I would love to see her wear this lavender Armani Prive Fall 2012 Couture pencil cocktail dress. I would have this made into a simple strapless cocktail dress with the half moon neckline. Add a silver Marchesa crystal beaded clutch and some silver peep toe pumps as well as some amazing earrings by Chopard to complete the ensemble.
Jennifer Connelly is a huge fan of Balenciaga and I am hoping to see her wear the brand for the 2012 Toronto Film Festival premiere of her film 'Writers.' I think that this white column gown with heart cut outs on the bodice would be an amazing choice for the actress. She has not worn the brand since she reappeared after her hiatus from having a baby. I think that this gown is modern and elegant but simple enough for a premiere at the Toronto Film Festival. Complete this look with a white and gold Jimmy Choo tube clutch, gold Jimmy Choo sandals, and maybe a gold clutch.
Kristen Bell is one that I am sure will come out for the 2012 Toronto Film Festival because it is not often that the actress will have the chance to attend one of these coveted red carpets. I think that for the premiere of her film 'Writers' that this hot pink one shouldered Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013 gown would be absolutely perfect. Kristen is not one of those stars that is not afraid of bold color on the red carpet so I think that this is a great option for the star. Add a pair of silver Jimmy Choo 'Lance' Sandals and then a hot pink clutch and some amazing earrings would complete this look for Kristen to make best dressed.
Lily Collins has not wowed me this year, yes she has has some pretty looks, but I am expecting more from the 23 year old actress. I am hoping that she does wow me at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of 'Writers' and I think that this yellow brocade Valentino Fall 2012 Couture (not RTW) long sleeved gown. I think that this would look amazing on Lily in a 60's inspired type of look with the much coveted Givenchy spring 2012 nude sandals and then a yellow clutch as well as some sleek modern locks. This completes all the Toronto Film Festival predictions.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part Five

Eva Mendes has failed to excite me on the red carpet since her Valentino lace bow accented cocktail dress at last years Critics Choice Movie Awards and I am not holding out hope that she will wow me in Toronto at the Film Festival premiere of her film 'The Place Beyond The Pines.' Because of this I have chosen this blush nude Valentino Resort 2013 gown. It is basically not going to get her on the best dressed list but the meh look will keep her off the worst dressed list. I don't event know how to accessorize this look to make it best dressed worth.
The person that I am expecting to blow me away at the 'The Place Beyond The Pines' Toronto Film Festival Premiere is Rose Byrne. The star had captured my attention last year but really won my hear with her 2012 awards season run of fashion forward unexpected looks like her embellished Elie Saab jumpsuit at the SAG awards and her black sequin draped Vivienne Westwood gown for the Academy Awards. For this premiere I would love to see her wear this elegant blush pink rosette embellished Chanel Fall 2012 Couture gown. Rose has worn some amazing Chanel looks in the past and I think that this gown would just top any look that she has worn in the past. To keep this look fashion forward I would keep it simple with just a silver clutch and some white Louis Vuitton silver cap toe pumps which are a celebrity favorite right now.
I think that the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection will be the go to collection for celebrities that are dressing for the fall 2012 film festival circuit. After wishing to have Kate wear a stunning gold Elie Saab gown for the Venice Film Festival premiere of 'The Reluctant Fundamentalist' I would love to see Kate wear this royal blue flowy top with black tapered pants from the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture collection for the Toronto Film Festival Premiere. I think that this look is that perfect mix of fashion, elegance, and edge that Kate looks for in a red carpet look. Styled by Rachel Zoe I would see this look with a black Edie Parker clutch and the runway pumps or black Christian Louboutin 'Pigalle' pumps.
Olga Kurylenko is a star that I always love to see the red carpet and even though she has such a great relationship with Elie Saab I think that this classic Chanel Fall 2012 Couture black dress would be the best option for her to wear for the Toronto Film Festival Premiere of the film 'To The Wonder.' I think that this dress is the modern take on the classic Chanel 'Little Black Dress' which is what made the house famous back in the 20's and 30's. I would pair this look with a Chanel black clutch, Chanel black sandals, and some pearl accented Chanel Fine Jewelry.
I always look forward to seeing what Rachel McAdams brings to the red carpet as she has given some amazing avant garde looks including she sheer red lace Marchesa dress that made my best dressed of the year list in 2012. For this premiere of 'To The Wonder' during the Toronto Film Festival I would love to see her wear this deep purple Zac Posen Resort 2013 halter dress with a full skirt. I think that this would be a great choice for Rachel as long as she doesn't wear the brooch as presented on the runway and has her hair pulled back. Add a pair of bejeweled black Rene Caovilla sandals and a silver Judith Leiber clutch to complete this look.
The final actress from 'To The Wonder' that would walk the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival premiere would be Rachel Weisz. The Academy Award winning actress has a host of designers that give her dresses for her red carpet appearance and for this event I would love to see Rachel wear this Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 RTW cornflower blue Jackie O inspired dress. I think that this dress would make Rachel look elegant and sophisticated. I think that this look paired with the runway clutch and broach as well as some silver Jimmy Choo 'Lance' sandals would just make this look sing and shine like no other.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part Four

Emily Blunt is usually one of my favorites on the red carpet but as of lately I have to say that the star has not been wowing me. I am hoping that at the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of her new film 'Looper' that she will make me fall in love with her again. I think that this structured teal Andrew Gn Resort 2013 cocktail dress that has strappy shoulders and a matching built in belt would be amazing for Emily. I think that the color would look amazing with her skin tone and hair color as well as the shape of the dress with only enhance Emily's toned figure. Add a gold glitter clutch and some nude strappy sandals and this looks is on its way to making the best dressed list.
Of course I want Christian Dior brand ambassador Marion Cotillard to wear a Christian Dior Haute Couture ensemble for the Toronto Film Festival Premiere of her film 'Rust & Bone.' After wearing a stunning nude Dior Fall 2012 RTW ensemble for the photocall and a custom couture ball gown for the premiere of this film at the Cannes Film Festival and already having worn a look from this Fall 2012 Couture collection for the London premiere of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' I think that it is in the bag that she will wear the brand for this premiere. I would love to see the stunning French actress wear this magenta bustier 'gown' top paired with black pants for the premiere. I think that this is quite the modern take on a gown as when you take your hands out of the pockets it looks like a gown but the black tapered tuxedo pants still peep through the sky high slit. I would keep this look simple by just pairing the look with a black Dior clutch and some black Christian Louboutin peep toes and then the vintage inspired curly faux bob that Marion sports so often to complete the look.
Jennifer Lawrence will be in the Canadian city with Bradley Cooper to promote their new film 'Silver Linings Playbook.' Jennifer took to the front row of Raf Simons debut at Christian Dior Haute Couture back in July so it will not surprise me if the young star wears a look from the much anticipated collection which has already had several red carpet outings on the likes of Rachel Wiesz, Jessica Biel (which I wish I could forget about), and of course as already mentioned Marion Cotillard. I think that for this event that this black strapless tulle tea length dress with embellished royal blue polka dots would be perfect. The dress does so much talking that all I would do is pair this look with black peep toe Jimmy Choo pumps and maybe some simple diamond accessories in the ear and on the wrist.
Gwyneth Paltrow has had a great year fashion wise from her Stella McCartney gown with the side cutouts at the Grammy Awards to the white caped Tom Ford gown at the Oscars to her micro mini Prada at the Met Gala the star has had an amazing run that I hope continues at the 'Thanks For Sharing' Toronto Film Festival premiere. One brand that Gwynie favors that has yet to make my best dressed list with her in it is Lanvin so I think that this embellished Lanvin Fall 2012 RTW dress would be perfect for her to wear for this premiere. I would have this dress shortened just a bit to show of Gwyneth's amazing legs and pair the dress with the same Prada pumps that she donned at the Met Gala (pictured left) and just a sleek pulled back hairstyle and she has hope to make the best dressed list yet again.
Emma Watson is definitely one to watch at the Toronto Film Festival because she is such a young fashion plate. I have chosen to go a little down the side of shtick by choosing this embellished floral Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 dress for the premiere of her new film 'The Perks of Being a Wallflower.' Many will not agree because they will think that the idea of this dress is too tacky for a premiere for this film , but I would let those comments slide off my back because I stand behind this dress for Emma. I think that this is the cutesy dress that Emma loves and we have not seen her wear an Oscar dress since the 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' London Premiere in July of last year, so I think its time to bring Oscar back. To finish this look I would add a gold glitter clutch and some pink strappy sandals just to add another pop of color.
Also in 'Perks of Being a Wallflower' is 'Vampire Diaries' star Nina Dobrev. Nina has really started to gain her red carpet footing in the past year with the discovery of designers like Donna Karan, Monique Lhuillier, J. Mendel, and Elie Saab. For this premiere I would love to see Nina wear this purple Elie Saab Resort 2013 dress with a flounce hem. I think that this color would look amazing on Nina's tanned skin tone and the shape would just hug all of her curves. Finish this look with the runway shoes and then a black clutch with gold details and this look is done and red carpet ready.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part 3

Today we start our wish list for the Toronto Film Festival with the star of 'Hyde Park on Hudson' Laura Linney. We don't see much of Laura on the red carpet and I will say it is on very rare occasion that there is something that I fall in love with, in fact don't think I've loved a look was when she donned a canary yellow Elie Saab Spring 2008 Couture gown (my favorite Elie Saab collection EVER) for the 2009 Golden Globe Awards when she won for her role in her TV shoe 'The Big C.' I think that wearing this Valentino Resort 2013 burnt orange minimalist silk peasant dress would be a great option for Laura especially with her skin tone and hair color. The dress shows off her shape and looks sophisticated and age appropriate. Add a gold metallic leather clutch and some gold strappy sandals to complete the look.
'Imogene' is the second film that Annette Bening will be premiering at the Toronto International Film Festival. I think that this strong rose embellished shoulder white Marchesa sheath dress with a 1/2 length sleeve is another elegant option for the 54 year old actress. I would replace the white belt for one that is gold, add a gold Marchesa crystal embellished clutch, and a pair of gold Jimmy Choo kitten heel sandals will keep this look absolutely stunning and red carpet ready.
Also staring in 'Imogene' is former 'SNL' funny lady Kristen Wiig. Kristen has a great relationship with designer J. Mendel wearing his designs many times most notably for the 2012 Academy Awards. So for this years Toronto Film Festival I would like to see Kristen wear this blue grey leather J. Mendel Resort 2013 dress. I think that Kristen would look absolutely amazing wearing this dress even if I am not the biggest fan of leather dresses on the red carpet this seems like one of the few good ones. Add a gunmetal grey clutch and strappy sandals to complete the premiere worth ensemble for Kristen.
Kristin Scott Thomas has such an elegant red carpet style and I am really looking forward to the French actress looking stunning on the red carpet at the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her new flick, 'In The House.' I think that this dove grey long sleeved Elie Saab Fall 2012 RTW gown with a knotted draped detail would be perfect for the star. I think that just adding a silver Edie Parker confetti clutch, silver peep toe pumps, and some amazing drop Van Cleef & Arpels earrings would complete this elegant ensemble.
Someone else that I would also love to see wear Elie Saab at the Toronto International Film Festival is Diane Kruger. Whilst Diane is not actually premiering a film at the festival her hunky beau Joshua Jackson is and as he is always at her side on the red carpet she is usually at his so here is what I want her to wear. As it is not Diane's night I would like for her to to subtle elegance wearing this black chiffon gown with a sheer beaded lace pattern yoke on the neck. I think that even if Diane tried to fade into the background she would still shine in this gown. Pair it will a gold clutch, black strappy sandals, and a pretty gold diamond bracelet and she is ready to stand next to her man and look absolutely stunning whilst doing so.
Marisa Tomei will have to work really hard to out shine Diane Kruger at the 'Inescapable' premiere where she will be promoting the film with co-star Joshua Jackson. I think that the star who tends to favor more avant garde looks would look amazing in this Alexander McQueen Resort 2013 ensemble. I think that this look which consists of a white organza to with ruffled cap sleeves and gold embroidery paired with some high waisted black tuxedo pants and a wide belt at the natural waist line. I think that this looks is just dramatic enough to outshine Diane which is not an easy task to endure. But to really do so the styling would have to be spot on. A gold and black Alexander McQueen box clutch and some amazing black and gold pumps or strappy sandals are what is needed to complete this sexy but different ensemble.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part 2

Chinese Actress Zhang Ziyi of 'Memoirs of a Geisha' and 'Rush Hour 2' fame to those in the USA will be screening her latest film 'Dangerous Liaison' based on the 1782 novel of the same name by Pierre Choderlos de Laclos. When Zhang was nominated for a Golden Globe she wore Armani Prive and then for the SAG Awards she wore Giorgio Armani and then for the Vanity Fair Oscar Party wore a stunning Valentino Couture gown. In Toronto you can get away with a stunning cocktail look or a simple gown and I have obviously opted for the later. Well for this year at the Toronto Film Festival I would love to see Zhang wear this stunning fully beaded Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 RTW spaghetti strap gown sans the runway jacket of course. Zhang first wore Ralph Lauren to the Ralph Lauren Vintage Cars Exhibition Launch Gala Dinner and then again for the premiere of her film 'The Devil Inside Me' in Shanghai so I think that this gold gown would be the perfect choice for the star. A gold Edie Parker clutch and some gold strappy sandals would be all needed to complete this stunning look.
Anna Kendrick continues to be one that I can not decide if I like or dislike on the red carpet wearing some things that are uber fabulous like Elie Saab Haute Couture but then she gives the rather cheap looking ensembles for other events. I know that she can not live in couture but others do dressed down rather well. For the 2012 Tornonto Film Festival I want Anna to wear this dusty raspberry Georges Hobeika Fall 2012 Couture cocktail dress. Anna always looks amazing on the red carpet when she is dressed in custom or couture so here she goes. The color would look amazing with her skin and hair tones. I would keep the look simple with a pair of Jimmy Choo strappy sandals and NOT, the much loved by Anna, Brian Atwood 'Manic' pumps in nude and that's it to keep the look simple.
Like Anna, Cody Horn will be in Toronto to promote 'End of Watch' with their costars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michel Pena. At the 'Magic Mike' LA premiere Cody donned a mix of three Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2012 Couture items to create her look and then continued down the sexy route at the ESPY Awards wearing Cushine et Ochs and I would like to see a softer side of her for this event. It is because of this that I have picked this light and airy bubble gum pink Jean Paul Gaultier Resort 2012 chiffon dress with a structured cap sleeve. I think that this is sweet but with an edge coming through those strong shoulders. Add a silver clutch and a silver pair strappy sandals to complete the look.
We really haven't seen much of Annette Bening since she was nominated at the 2010 Oscars and this year at the Toronto Film Festival she has two movies showing, the first being 'Ginger and Rosa.' For this premiere I would like Annette to resort back to the man that designed her Oscar gown, Naeem Khan and this stunning gold and black striped Resort 2013 with flapper hem fringe. I think that this would be a sophisticated age appropriate look for the 54 year old actress. I would add a structured fitted tuxedo blazer unbuttoned, a pair of kitten heel Jimmy Choo gold sandals, and a gold clutch to throw the look into total hollywood glamour.
I always have a hard time with Christina Hendricks on the red carpet becuase she never dresses for her body type. She had a large voluptuous figure and does not know how to dress for it. The example that she should always go by is the lilac Zac Posen gown she wore for the 2010 Emmy Awards, the look accentuated her waist and showed off her decolletage in a sophisticated non-constricting manor and these are the main issues that Christina has on the red carpet. For the Toronto Film Festival Premiere of 'Ginger and Rosa' I have chosen to put Christina in this wine colored Zac Posen Resort 2013 dress but with a few much needed improvement for her figure. First I would have the long sleeves turned into just a cap at the shoulder and then have the pencil skirt made to fit straight down from her waist and not pulling in anywhere. Because Christina is still trying to figure out how to dress her body we will complete the look with a pair of black Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps and a black Judith Leiber clutch.
Where all the eyes will be at the premiere of 'Ginger and Rosa' will really be is on 14 year old Elle Fanning. Elle made a huge splash on the red carpet two years ago making her red carpet debut wearing Marc Jacobs at the Venice Film Festival and continuing to wear amazing looks and becoming the face of Rodarte in 2011. I think that the star will wear a Rodarte ensemble as she has not worn one of their complicated avant garde looks in quite some time and she is on the very short list of stars that actually get to. I have chosen this black and clay colored long sleeved dress from the Rodarte Fall 2012 RTW collection. I think that this look is totally within Elle's style and would complement her new hair color amazingly. Add a simple pair of black peep toes by Jimmy Choo or Nicolas Kirkwood sandals and this look is complete keeping all foucus on the stunning design.

2012 Toronto Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part One

Keira Knightley will be at the Toronto Film Festival to promote her film 'Anna Karenina' in which she plays the title role. There is a handful of designers that Keira will go to on the red carpet and for this event I would love to see Keira wear this gold brocade Burberry Prorsum Resort 2013 gown. In Toronto it is a much less formal of a red carpet than in Cannes or Venice so I think that this simple column gown would be perfect. I am sure she wont be far from Valentino by adding some nude Valentino pumps and some Chanel infused thru Chanel Fine Jewelry.
Taylor Shilling showed up on the red carpet early this year promoting 'The Lucky One' and will be in Toronto promoting, 'Argo.' I think that the actress should wear this vibrant Peter Pilotto Resort 2013 shift dress for the red carpet premiere of her film. Add a pair of blue sandals and an orange clutch to keep the look fashion forward.
Gemma Arterton showed up on the red carpet circuit in 2010 when she wore a stunning Valentino ball gown for the 'Prince of Persia' London premiere and continued looking amazing on the red carpet up until lately. She has had some unfortunate red carpet looks or just horrible styling. Well I am hoping she turns this all around for her Toronto Film Festival premiere of 'Byzantium.' This psychedelic print in pink, red purples, and silvers is complete beaded which doesn't really show in the pictures but on the video of the runway show the dress glittered all the way down the runway. I think that this color would look amazing on Gemma's tan skin and the silhouette would be simply elegant. Add a light pink satin clutch and a pair of gunmetal silver strappy sandals to keep the focus on the dress.
Also promoting 'Byzantium' will be Irish actress Saorise Ronan. Saoirse always goes for looks that are avant garde and by avant garde designers. Last year at the Toronto Film Festival she donned an archive Rodarte dress for her 'Violet & Daisy' premiere (pictured left) and I would like to see her dip into the current collection for her premiere this year. I think that this burgundy and cream Rodarte Fall 2012 RTW dress that has a flounce hem line paired with a matching burgundy waist band. A black pair of strappy sandals and a black clutch will finish this look off perfectly.
Last but not least for today we have a wish for Halle Berry to wear Badgley Mishka Resort 2013 for the premiere of 'Cloud Atlas.' Halle wears some looks that are sexy and not what one would usually think of for a 45 year old actress. She loves sheer panels, cut outs, low cuts, and extremely low backs. For this premiere I have stayed true to Halle's style by choosing this black sheath dress that have the lingerie inspired top, gold embroidery, and a sheer panel waist. Just pair this look with a pair of gold and black Brian Atwood peep toe pumps and a statement gold cuff to complete the minimalist look.

2012 Venice Film Festival: Premiere Wish List Part Two

Kristin Scott Thomas is a stunning woman and amazing French actress most known in the USA for 'The English Patient,' Mission: Impossible,' and 'Confessions of a Shopohilic.' This year at the Venice Film Festival she will be debuting her new French film 'Cherchez Hortense.' Kristin has an amazing sense of style and knows how to dress elegantly yet still modernly for her age. I would love to see her wear this amazing Armani Prive Fall 2012 Couture ensemble. The look that consists of a navy satin vest and bell skirt as well as a sequin embellished top would be amazing on Kristin. She would give us her best Victoria Beckham inspired pose working the pockets. Add a pair of satin pointy toe pumps and some amazing Van Cleef & Arpels sapphire earrings to complete this sophisticated ensemble.
Noomi Rapace really stepped out on the red carpet scene at the Venice Film Festival in 2010 and she returns this year to promote her new film 'Passion' Having worn some of the most amazing designers in the past such as Elie Saab, Givenchy, and Alexander McQueen I would like to see her continue to embrace the avant garde and wear this abstract leaf print black and green Giambattista Valli Fall 2012 Couture (Not RTW) gown. I think that she would work this gown and make it just as fabulous as it was on the runway and showcase the dramatic train that follows it. Add a black satin clutch, black strappy sandals, and some amazing emerald accessories to complete this Film Festival ensemble.
Rachel McAdams will also be promoting 'Passion' at this years Venice Film Festival. I would love to see the stunning blonde actress wear this acid yellow Jason Wu Spring 2012 RTW gown with a rise and fall hem. I have been shocked that this has not been worn as of late for any event by Diane Kruger, Lea Michele, Reese Witherspoon, or Jamie King but I think that Rachel could more than do this gown justice. I am praying to see this gown on the red carpet because it was one of my favorite gowns of the Spring 2012 RTW collections. Add a silver clutch and strappy sandals as well as some amazing diamond chandelier earring and a statement cuff to finish off this look.
Chinese actress Angelababy has made a huge splash on the red carpet this year wearing stunning designs by Elie Saab and Barney Cheung and I am hoping that she continues to wow during the 2012 Venice Film Festival where she is going to promote her new film 'Tai Chi 0.' I would love to see her wear this Christian Dior blue chiffon one shouldered ball gown modified to not have the black modesty panel or to have a nude one. I think that this color would look amazing on her skin tone. Add a sapphire blue Roger Vivier 'Short Night' clutch with a crystal buckle and some matching strappy cage sandals as well as some amazing sapphire earrings to complete this stunning princess like ensemble that would even have Catherine Middleton envious.
Also supporting 'Tai Chi 0' is actress Shu Qi who is a red carpet veteran who has worn haute couture and custom gowns like she purchased them right off the rack, as she wears them with such ease. I would love to see Shu wear this purple Louis Vuitton Fall 2012 RTW gown. I would have the dress made full length, just like I recommend for Fan Bingbing. I think that this look paired with a silver Louis Vuitton clutch, purple pumps made to match the dress, and some diamond earrings would be an amazing option for the Asian actress. As I said in the Laetitia Casta post there is always a night for Louis Vuitton on the Venice Film Festival and I think this would be a great look for that night.
