Cate Blanchett for the London Premiere of 'The Hobbit' Wish List

This year Cate Blanchett has definately fallen out of good graces with the style gods. This woman used to be able to do no wrong in my eyes but this year I have heard myself saying time and time again 'what the hell happend' whilst looking at images of Cate the Former Great on the red carpet. I am hoping that with the premieres of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' that we get the amazingly glamourous Cate that was alaways there back. For the London premiere that is set to take place next week I would love to see Cate wear this amazing blush pink Armani Prive Fall 2012 Couture strappless beaded gown. Many will say that this gown will wash her out as it is almost the same tone as her pale skin and only somebody with a darker complextion will be able to pull this off. To them I say that she has pulled of this color before wearing a blush pink Armani Prive suit for the Cannes Film Festival photocall of 'Robin Hood' back in 2010. Finish this look off with some earrings and a braclet from Cate's go to jeweler Van Cleef and Arpels, a gold clutch, and a pair of gold Armani Prive pumps and I believe that we would be back to seeing Cate the Great on the red carpet yet again.

P.S. I just want to let everyone know that starting December 1st through the 25th that I will be posting one of the 25 End of the Year Style Awards everyday leading up to the Best Dressed of the Year list on the 25. I will then take a short break then be back at the very begining of the new year for a very rapid paced awards season!

Amanda Seyfried 'Les Miserables' Premieres Wish List

Amanda Seyfried plays the daughter of Fantine, played by Anne Hathaway, in the upcoming musical film Les Miserables. I am holding out hope that Amanda will wow on the red capret for the promotional tour for this film. Having already made one stop at the Hollywood Film Awards to honor the films priducers wearing a stunning tangeine Prabal Gurung cocktail dress I do believe that this is possible. For the London premiere of this film I would love to see Amanda wear this amazing classic red Valentino Fall 2012 Couture gown. This gown is elegant and demure which is the epitome of Amanda's style. She has had a few misteps this year but I will say that I am excited to see what she brings to the table. For LA I would love to see her wear this navy blue and aqua Giorgio Armani Spring 2013 RTW gown. This is my favorite gown from this collection and possibly on of my favorite gowns from the Spring 2013 RTW collections so I am putting a lot of faith in Amanda not to disappoint me if she is to wear this stunning creation.

Anne Hathaway 'Les Miserables' Premiere Wish List

This is the film that I have been waiting to start promotional tours for all year. I was highly disappointed that this film did not get a premiere at any of the major fall film festivals like Venice, Toronto, or Rome. With that aside I am still hoping for some major red carpet moments from the films stars. Anne Hathaway plays Fantine in the film and ultmately cut her hair off to her now infamous pixie cut specifically for this film. I am predicitng two major world premieres for this film. One in London and one in LA. I am predicting London because it is a British produced film and I see it having a huge premiere in the capitol city. For this premiere I would die to see Anne wear this stunning sculptural Armani Prive Fall 2012 Couture midnight blue gown. The plain version of this gown was actually worn by Kasia Smitunik at the closing ceremony of the Venice Film Festival. That being said I would love to see Anne wear the runway version of this gown because I am still holding out hope that someone will. Some may say that this gown is too edgy for Anne's classic princessy style but I believe that with the new hair that she would be one of the few people to pull this gown off. For LA I would love to see her wear this blood red Marchesa Spring 2013 RTW tiered fringe gown. I think that this is more in line with the classic Anne Hathaway style but still extremely edgy and fashion forward. Other likely premiere places are of course Paris and then New York City.

Meryl Streep for the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors Wish List

On December 2nd stars of stage, screen, and beyond will all gather inside the Kennedy Center theater in Washington D.C. to honor five new Kennedy Center Honorees; Buddy Guy, David Letterman, Natalia Makarova, Led Zeppelin, and Dustin Hoffman. After looking through all the honorees trying to see who will be on hand for the performance tribute on the stage and the only person I could come up with is Meryl Streep. Last year Meryl was given the Kennedy Center Honor and I believe that this year she will be on hand to help honor her long time friend and colleague Dustin Hoffman. Having worked together with Hoffman in 'Kramer vs. Kramer,' which both Streep and Hoffman won Academy Awards for their performances in the film and the film won Best Picture, I am sure that she will make the journey to Washington to honor her friend on the same stage where she was honored last year. For the red carpet I would love to see Meryl wear this stunning embellished blue lace Elie Saab Spring 2013 RTW gown with stunning long sleeves and an off the shoulder neckline. She should wear her hair up, add a silver Edie Parker clutch, silver Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, and her Kennedy Center Honors ribbon necklace and she is ready to wow on the red carpet.

2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards Wish List: Marion Cotillard

Marion Cotillard will be on hand at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards as she is being honored with the Lifetime Career Tribute Award. I have to say that Marion, being a face of Dior as well, has been getting better on the red carpet this year wearing some amazing looks on the red carpet this year. Lately she has been wearing a lot of the Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture and I am hoping to see something a lot more light than what we have been seeing from her. I have been praying to see Marion wear this dress since it was presented back in January and I hope she wears this for the awards ceremony. Pair this with a purple Judith Leiber clutch, silver Jimmy Choo sandals, and a pair of cluster diamond earrings and she is going to wow for the first time in a while.

2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards Wish List Part Two

Jennifer Lawrence is the new face of Dior and aside from the first look that she wore from the Resort 2013 collection all her Dior looks have failed on the red carpet. Seeing that this is going to be the first awards show of the 2013 Awards Season that I believe that she will wear a Christian Dior look for this event. Jennifer is part of the cast of 'The Silver Linings Playbook' which is nominated for Best Ensemble Cast. I think that this amazing black embellished strapless pencil dress from the Christian Dior Spring 2013 RTW collection. Pair this dress with a pair of black strappy sandals and a bright blue clutch, simple sleep hair and neutral make up will hopefully make Jennifer redeem herself on the red carpet because at this point she has gone from Fashionista to Fashole over the year.
Kristen Bell is also part of a cast that is nominated for Best Ensemble Cast from 'Safety Not Guaranteed.' Kristen is always a delight to see on the red carpet because she always brings elegant glamorous style when she steps out on the red carpet. I think that aqua green Alberta Ferretti Spring 2013 RTW dress would be quite the elegant choice for her to pick for this event. Pair it with some pretty diamond drop earrings, a silver Leiber clutch, and some strappy silver Jimmy Choo sandals and she will set to stun.
Tilda Swinton is one of my favorites on the red carpet because she is not afraid to take risks when she steps out on the red carpet. She has amazing friendships with avant garde designers such as Lanvin, Alexander McQueen, and Hadier Ackerman. For the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards Tilda's film 'Moonrise Kingdom,' which opened the 2012 Cannes Film Festival in May, is nominated for Best Ensemble Cast as well as Best Feature Film. For this event I would love to see the androgynous beauty wear this menswear inspired tuxedo from the Lanvin Spring 2013 RTW collection. I of course would recommend that she wear a tuxedo shirt with this look. Finish it off with black pointy toe pumps and a bold red lip and the look is complete

2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards Wish List Part One

Amy Adams is a member of the cast of 'The Master' which is nominated for best feature at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards which are set to take place in New York City on the 26th. This is the first award show that kicks of the race to the 2013 Academy Awards. I would love to see the star shine wearing this amazing canary yellow Marchesa Spring 2013 RTW jacquard dress. This dress was not shown on the runway back during New York Fashion Week in September but was shown with the rest of the collection that was made available on fashions newest hottest shopping site, Moda Operandi, which pre-sells the latest designer collections. Pair this look with a pair of gold sandals and a gold clutch with Veronica Lake wave hairstyle.
 Aubrey Plaza is in the film 'Safety Not Guaranteed' which is nominated for Best Ensemble Cast. I have chosen to have Aubrey wear this amazing red Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 RTW dress. This has to be one of my favorite looks from this collection so I am hoping that it does get a red carpet moment as well as that whoever does wear this dress does it justice. I think that his dress would look amazing on Aubrey who usually does look amazing on the red carpet (reference picture look aside). I think that if she wore this look with black and silver strappy Jimmy Choo sandals, a red clutch, and a wavy faux bob and she will look absolutely amazing,
Emily Blunt is part of the cast of 'Your Sisters Sister' which is nominated for the Best Ensemble Cast Award at the 2012 Gotham Independent Film Awards. I haven't been wowed by Emily on the red carpet in a while and I think that for this event that if she wore this amazing printed Peter Pilotto Spring 2013 RTW dress with a halter neck and a peplum hem. I think that this dress is a statement and would look amazing on Emily with her awesome body. Pair this with a simple pair of black satin peep toe Christian Louboutin pumps and a simple red patent leather clutch to complete this look.

2012 Golden Horse Awards Wish List

 Hao Lei stunned in an Elie Saab couture gown at the 'Rust & Bone' premiere during the Cannes Film Festival in May. I would love to see the stunning actress wear this amazing Elie Saab Fall 2012 RTW dove grey gown with long sleeves, a plunging neckline, and a daring split for the 2012 Golden Horse Awards. These are the Chinese equivalent of the Academy Awards and several amazing looks always come out of this event and I think that this has great potential to be one. She must keep the belt so that it will define her waist, pair this look with matching accessories and a sleek hairstyle.
Nominee Lun Mei Guy was seated at the Chanel Spring 2013 RTW show in Paris back in October. I would love to see the star wear this floral embellished gown from the collection. The only modification that I would have made to the gown is so that it went all the way to the floor. Par this look with a pair of silver peep toe platforms, a silver Leiber clutch, a small stack of diamond bracelets, and some amazing earrings and this look is set to stun.
The last wish we have is for Sandrine Pinna to wear this stunning eggplant purple Christian Dior Spring 2012 Couture gown. This gown that features a sheer skirt and no back would be an amazing look for the star. I love this gown and I really hope that it does get a red carpet moment. Pair this gown with a black Leiber clutch and some black strappy sandals infused with crystals. Finish the look with some amazing earrings and the look is DONE!
