2014 Golden Globe Awards: Best Actress in a Movie - Drama Nominee Wish List

Cate Blanchett has taken a nomination for Best Actress in a Movie Drama for her work in the Woody Alan film 'Blue Jasmine' and I am most excited to see what Queen Cate will bring to the red carpet at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards on January 12th. Last year Cate was named the face of Giorgio Armani's latest fragrance 'Si' and surprisingly we have not seen her in but one Armani ensemble since that announcement. For the Golden Globe Awards I think that this amazing champagne colored Armani Prive Fall 2013 Couture gown would bring the utmost glamour to the red carpet on Cate. This dress to me is a very modern interpretation of 1930's Hollywood and this is the type of look I most love to see on Cate. A gold box clutch, a pair of gold sandals, a faux bob with old Hollywood waves, as well as a neutral makeup palette will make sure that Queen Cate reigns supreme.
I saw 'Saving Mr. Banks' last night and I have to say I can totally see where Emma Thompson earned her nomination from. While I do not know if she will take home a globe against Cate Blanchett or Sandra Bullock, but I am sure that the 54 year old actress will bring it to the red carpet either way. For this event I would love to see Emma wear this amazing green Vionnet Fall 2013 Demi-Couture fitted gown with attached cape. Many readers may know that I have a love for capes. I find something about a woman in a cape on the red carpet extremely regal which is something that I think Emma could pull off swimmingly. Finish the look with simple gold sandals, a gold box clutch, and a pair of statement yellow gold and emerald earrings to ensure a regal red carpet ensemble.
'Labor Day' may have earned Kate Winslet a Golden Globe nomination but I don't believe that she will take home a trophy. If the new mother even decides to travel to LA for this event I can see her wearing this nude beaded Jenny Packham Spring 2014 RTW gown with a deep v neck and cap sleeves. This is a perfect post baby dress because it is simple and the shape is figure flattering which is what every new mom wants. A nude clutch and gold strappy sandals along with a selection of Tiffany and Co. diamond jewels in the ear and on the wrist will ensure that Kate glows.
Last but not least for today is 'Gravity' star Sandra Bullock. From everything that I am reading its going to be a Sandy vs. Cate showdown for who takes home the Best Actress in a Movie Drama trophy at the Golden Globe Awards. Because she seems to have a 50/50 shot of taking home this award I want Sandra to be on top of her fashion game. Since 2010, when Sandy took home her first Academy Award for 'The Blind Side,' she has really learned how to dress for the red carpet. I am hoping that this awards season that Sandy really shines and pulls out all the stops for this years awards season. For the 2014 Golden Globe Awards I think that this black Marchesa Spring 2014 RTW gown with white floral embroidery is absolutely perfect for Sandra. It will make for the most amazing red carpet moment Sandy has ever had. A black Judith Leiber crystal encrusted clutch, a pair of black Saint Laurent sandals, as well as some stunning diamonds in her ears and on her wrists will make for the perfect topping to this amazing red carpet ensemble.

2014 AFI Awards Wish List Part 2

It looks like Sandra Bullock is going to ride the 'Gravity' train all the way to the Academy Awards and one of her stops will most likely be the 2014 AFI awards where the film is one of the honorees for Film of the Year. For this luncheon ceremony I would love to see Sandy wear this amazing rust, burnt orange, and grey Altuzzara Pre-Fall 2014 color blocked sheath dress. This is a look that would look so elegant on Sandra. Now Sandy has some amazing shoe game always rocking new awesome pairs of shoes and very few simple black pumps. Finish the look with a pair of nude and metallic gold Aquazzura pumps and sleek straight locks will complete this perfect ensemble.
'Her' is the film with the largest amount of stars. I am not saying that they are all going to show up but I am going to make a wish for each and every one of the 3 major stars. Olivia Wilde is one of those stars. Olivia recently announced that she was expecting her first child with fiance Jason Sudeikis and I am expecting some amazing looks from her come awards season, especially after her bright blue David Koma dress at the 'Her' LA Premiere. I think that this navy blue Gucci Pre-Fall 2014 pant suit paired with a black menswear inspired button down. Style the look with a pair of black Gucci 'Viola' open toe pumps, a black Gucci 'Hollywood' clutch with gold hardware, and a selection of layered gold necklaces to ensure a sexy and sophisticated maternity look for Olivia.
Rooney Mara is also in 'Her' and will most likely be in attendance at the 2014 AFI Awards. Rooney usually sticks to black or white on the red carpet and instead of changing her style I am going to pick a black dress for her for this red carpet. This black Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014 cocktail dress with a scoop neck and a voluminous skirt. This dress is something that I can see Rooney wearing as she has worn similar dresses from the likes of Louis Vuitton and J. Mendel. Finish this look with a pair of simple black Saint Laurent 'Janis' sandals and her signature deep berry lip color to complete her ensemble. 
The final star on this wish list is also from 'Her.' Scarlett Johanson is not seen in the film but her voice is heard as the voice inside the tablet which is the focus of the story. For this event I expect to see ScarJo wear something amazing as she isn't taking home any nominations, except for one from the Broadcast Critics Association. This black and white David Koma Spring 2014 RTW dress that features color blocking and a white sheer yoke and short sleeves would be a perfect choice for the actress for the 2014 AFI Awards. This is a sophisticated yet still modern look that on Scarlett would just shine. Finish the look with a pair of Jimmy Choo 'Kahlua' black pumps with a silver pointed cap toe and a red lip and ScarJo will have a perfect look for the 2014 AFI Awards.

2014 AFI Awards Wist List Part 1

'American Hustle' and 'Her' are two films that Amy Adams has stared in that are being honored with the title of an AFI Movie of the Year Award. This award is handed out to members of the cast and crew in a private luncheon in LA on January 10th 2014. Amy Adams should wear this black, white, and gold Andrew Gn Spring 2014 RTW shift dress for the event. Some attend this event in more casual cocktail attire. While others wear more formal casual/business attire. This is a kind of mix of the two style of clothing it could work in a boardroom or a dinner date which is perfect for Amy for this event. Finish the look with a pair of black and gold Jimmy Choo pointed toe pumps and Amy will have the perfect look for this event. 
Carey Mulligan will attend the AFI Awards luncheon to represent her film 'Inside Llewyn Davis.' Having a knack for all things neutral I think that this white Elie Saab Spring 2014 RTW cap sleeved dress that features lace panels on the bodice. This is a pretty dress that would look elegant on Carey and is event appropriate. Where Carey usually goes wrong is during the styling portion of the red carpet process, usually picking shoes or clutches that are way to heave for the light dresses that she picks. I would style this dress with a pair of white Saint Laurent 'Janis' pumps, her hair slicked back, and a bright pink lip to ensure that Carey is on the top of her game for the 2014 AFI Awards.
Christian Dior spokesmodel and Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Lawrence will most likely be on hand at the AFI Awards to represent her film 'American Hustle' alongside co-star Amy Adams. While I am praying to see JLaw not wear Dior for absolutely every event between now and the Vanity Fair Party following the Academy Awards, but I think that this Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW pink, black, and green long sleeved dress. This is a perfect look for Jennifer because it is the perfect mix of sporty and feminine which is a balance that Jennifer needs with her athletic style figure. A pair of green Jimmy Choo 'Anouck pointed toe pumps, a black Lady Dior clutch, and a bright pink lip will give Jennifer a look that I adore.
'12 Years a Slave' actress Lupita Nyong'o will attend the 2014 AFI Awards representing the film which has certainly put her on the map. Having an amazing sense of style and a knack for getting the biggest brands in the world to lend her clothing I am excited to see what she is going to bring to the red carpet come awards season 2014. For this event I really want to see this amazing purple Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 RTW floral embellished sheath dress. This dress is a true piece of artwork and I am praying that someone like Lupita will pick it up so that it will be given the justice that it deserves. I would just add a pair of black to silver ombre Jimmy Choo 'Anouck' pointed toe pumps and a red lip to make this a perfect look for Lupita for the 2014 AFI Awards.
'Fruitville Station' star Octavia Spencer is always a delight to see on the red carpet, even if we always know the answer to the question "who are you wearing?" The stunning actress has always worn Tadashi Shoji during her red carpet outings because the brand was the only one that was good to her in the months leading up to her Academy Award win for her role in 'The Help.' For this event I would love to see Octavia wear this amazing pastel Tadashi Shoji Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress. This dress is elegant and flirty for the perfect red carpet moment for this event. A simple pair of gold pumps would be all that I would add to finish this look of for Octavia for this event.

2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards Wish List Part 3

My One to Watch in 2014 is and was Lupita Nyong'o snagged herself a Best Supporting Actress nomination for her film '12 Years a Slave.' For this event next year I would love to see Lupita snatch up this amazing black, purple, and blue J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2014 gown. This is a modern edgy gown that would look stunning against Lupita's rich dark complexion. As a woman who loves herself some purple makeup a purplely berry lipstick, a black box clutch, and a pair of blue sandals underneath her gown would make this the perfect look for Lupita for the Critics Choice Movie Awards.
Oprah Winfrey is nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Lee Daniels' 'The Butler.' The billionairess and former talk show host has made her return to the big screen in her first big role since 'The Color Purple.' While on the promo tour for 'The Butler' Oprah wore quite a bit of Escada and Theia and looked absolutely elegant in everything that she wore and I am hoping that it continues through awards season. That is why I have picked this deep purples Zac Posen Pre-Fall 2014 portrait neck cocktail dress. This is one of the few awards shows where it is acceptable to rock a cocktail length ensemble and as Oprah tends to favor these type of looks I think that this is the perfect dress for her to wear. A black box clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps, and some amazing diamonds in her ears and around her wrist from her own collection will make this the perfect look for the Critics Choice Movie Awards.
Triple nominee for Best Actress and Best Actress in an Action Movie for 'Gravity' and Best Actress in a Comedy for 'The Heat' Sandra Bullock will start her road the the Academy Awards at the Critics Choice Movie Awards on January 16th 2014. For this event I have chosen to put Sandy in this rust red J. Mendel Spring 2014 RTW gown. The moment I saw this gown take to the runway in NYC in September I have been praying that Sandra will pick it up for a premiere or awards show. Well since the premieres are long past I am praying that we will see her snatch it up for this event during Awards Season. Finish the look with a gold Kotur clutch, a pair of simple Jimmy Choo sandals in gold, and top it all off with some vintage yellow gold set Bulgari jewelry for the perfect awards show look,
Her voice has garnered Scarlett Johansson a nomination for Best Supporting Actress fer her role as the Siri type voice in the film 'Her.' Because it doesn't seem like Scarlett will receive any more nominations for this film this awards season. With that said, I am hoping to see Scarlett bring it to this event as a nominee. The best way to do this for me is to wear this amazing black and white Naeem Khan Spring 2014 RTW floral embellished strapless gown. This is just a perfect old Hollywood moment waiting to happen. Finish the look with some dazzling drop earrings, a pair of black Christian Louboutin sandals, her hair worn in Veronica Lake waves over one shoulder, and a red lip to ensure that Scarlett will shine on the red carpet at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie awards next month.
Sophie Nelisse is nominated for Best Young Actor/Actress for her character Leisel in 'The Book Thief.' Having worn an orange Stella McCartney dress to the Hollywood Film Awards and looking chic and sophisticated as well as age appropriate for a 13 year old girl I am hoping to see her wear something a little more youthful and fun for her first televised awards show. This multi colored lace Monique Lhuillier Pre-Fall 2014 gown is young and elegant and fun all at the same time which makes for a perfect look for a 13 year old actress to wear for a Hollywood red carpet event. I would finish the look with the purple pointed toe Monique Lhuillier pumps that the gown is styled with on the runway, a purple clutch, and some simple borrowed diamonds will ensure that Sophie has a big night for the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards.

2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards Wish List Part 2

Gwyneth Paltrow's role as Pepper in 'Iron Man 3' has scored the blonde a Best Actress in an Action Movie nomination at the 2014 Critics Choice Awards. Gwynie gave one of the most talked about looks of the year in Antonio Berardi at the LA premiere of 'Iron Man 3.' I am hoping to see her keep the sexy going but by picking this plum colored Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture gown she will keep the sexy but in a subtle sophisticated way. A pair of strappy Jimmy Choo 'Madison' sandals in black, a silver Jimmy Choo crystal encrusted clutch, a pair of Atelier Versace sunburst diamond earrings, and an Atelier Versace diamond ring would be the perfect icing on top of this sexy cake.
Jennifer Lawrence has 2 nominations at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. One for Best Supporting Actress for 'American Hustle' and another for Best Actress in an Action Movie for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,' which she won for the original earlier this year. Going through awards season as a Christian Dior spokesmodel, the Critics Choice Awards was one of the few events where she did not grab up a frock from the company that signs her checks in favor of a stunning black Prabal Gurung gown. For the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards I am hoping that it will be another night off for Dior in favor of this electric blue Diane von Furstenberg Spring 2014 RTW halter neck gown. This is the kind of dress that Jennifer needs to be wearing. As someone with an athletic build JLaw should be going more towards the sportier type ensembles. Finish the look with a gold and black Jimmy Choo 'Mosaic' box clutch and a pair of black Jimmy Choo 'Vamp' sandals to keep the look simple and ready for a best dressed appearance.
Jessica Chastain is an expected presenter at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards after taking home the Best Actress trophy at last years awards ceremony for her work in 'Zero Dark Thirty,' that also gave her an Academy Award nomination. I have been praying to see Jessica Chastain to wear one of the emerald green gowns from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection and I think that this high neck column gown with a green tulle and lace cape would be the perfect choice for the stunning red headed actress wear on the red carpet the Critics Choice Movie Awards. The dress is stunning enough on its own that all I would add to this gown is a simple pair of metallic gold sandals and her hair worn over one shoulder in a set of dramatic Veronica Lake waves.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus snagged herself a Best Actress in a Comedy nomination for her work in the film 'Enough Said' at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. The star of the big and small screen has moments that I love her look on the red carpet and times where that love is not so much. For this awards show I think that this white KaufmanFranco Spring 2014 RTW long sleeved gown would be a simple and elegant perfect gown for Julia to don. This dress makes for a perfect back drop to add a sparkling silver and white Edie Parker chevron clutch, a pair of simple silver sandals, and maybe a pair of statement earrings will make sure that Julia wins the hearts of fashion critics everywhere.
'August: Osage County' has snagged Julia Roberts a Best Supporting Actress nomination at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. While I am praying that during the course of awards season that we do not see Julia wear black dress after black dress, after all she pulls off color like a pro, I think that this simple black Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2014 draped gown is a perfect option for the 46 year old actress. This gown is another black gown but its draping makes it interesting and I think that Julia would style it up with a pair of statement Van Cleef and Arpels vintage sapphire, diamond, and emerald earrings, a pair of simple black Casadei satin peep toe pumps, a black satin Prada box clutch, and a gold and diamond bracelet will give this look the perfect finishing touches to complete this red carpet ensemble.

2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards Wish List Part 1

Adele Exarchopoulos is a new face on the red carpet after debuting her film 'Blue is the Warmest Color' at the Cannes Film Festival wearing Balmain and Gucci. The film as garnered the 20 year old actress a nomination for Best Young Actor/Actress at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards on January 16th 2014. Having worn some very simple and some very complicated looks I am torn on what to put her in but I ultimately decided to put the French starlet in this Valentino Spring 2014 RTW folk style gown. I think that the star just oozes sex though her pours so that even though that she would be completely covered up in this gown. Finish the look with a pair of nude sandals and a gold clutch to add the right finishing touches.
American Hustle star is Amy Adams has garnered a nomination for Best Actress in a Comedy for her work in the film at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. Earlier this year Amy Adams wore a top and skirt by Vionnet to this event when she was nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her work in 'The Master.' I have kinda kept the same style for her to wear with this 30s inspired Jenny Packham Spring 2014 RTW gown. I am in love with this gown and I am praying that I will see it take to a red carpet during the 2014 Awards Season and Amy would make the perfect model for this look on the red carpet. Finish the look with a Prada box clutch that matches the salmon pink band in the dress, a pair of bronze Christian Louboutin d'orsay knot peep toe platform pumps as well as some stunning statement jewels in her ears, around her wrist, and on her finger from Bulgari.
My queen of the red carpet Cate Blanchett has been nominated for Best Actress for her work in the Woody Allen flick 'Blue Jasmine' at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. I am predicting that during the course of awards season that we will see Cate wear one Antonio Berardi ensemble and I think that this pink and red color blocked gown from the Spring 2014 RTW collection will look absolutely amazing on the red carpet. This is amazing dress needs someone with the presence of Cate to pull it off and then who better than the queen. Finish the look very simply with a red Roger Vivier clutch, a pair of red Roger Vivier sandals, and Van Cleef & Arpels diamond drop earrings to ensure that all eyes will be one the queen.
Best Actress for 'Saving Mr. Banks' nominee Emma Thompson has not exactly thrilled me on the red carpet whilst out promoting the film, but I am hoping now that she has garnered some nominations that she will be able to make me fall love some of her looks (if not all). For the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards I think that this Naeem Khan Pre-Fall 2014 gown with gold beaded draped fringe would be the perfect gown for the 54 year old British actress. Add a simple Jimmy Choo 'Tube' clutch in gold, a pair of black Salvatore Ferragamo satin peep toe pumps, a pair of Chopard Red Carpet Collection fire opal earrings, and a turtle shaped Chopard ring that consists of 16 carats of yellow, brown, and cognac diamonds to finish off a chic sophisticated look for the nominee.
It would be a delight to see Best Actress in an Action Movie for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' nominee Evangeline Lilly take to the red carpet at the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards. Whilst on the promo tour for this film Evangeline wore a stunning Catherine Dean stone white gown (pictured left) and I still think her best ever red carpet look came from the 'You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger' premiere at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival with a blue and green fringe Emilio Pucci cocktail dress. For this event I think that this slinky body hugging Emilio Pucci Spring 2014 RTW white long sleeve gown that features slashes all over the sleeves and down the sides would make Mrs Lilly looks like a sexy femme fatale queen. An ivory and silver Edie Parker 'Jean' stripe box clutch, a pair of Jimmy Choo 'Lance' sandals, A pair of dazzling Chopard drop earrings featuring 23 carats of emeralds and 5 carats of diamond, and a 20 carat emerald Chopard cocktail ring set in a setting of platinum and diamonds will ensure that this is one of the best looks of the night.
Relative red carpet newcomer Greta Gerwig first stepped out for the world to see on the arm of designer Prabal Gurung wearing one of his creations at the 2012 Met Ball and she looked fantastic' so naturally I turned to the designer to find her look for the 2014 Critics Choice Movie Awards where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy for her work in the film 'Francis Ha.' Having a knack for wearing some of the more avant garde looks I chose this bright blue look from the Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 RTW collection which features a portrait neckline. This look takes a very brave woman to make it work and I think that Greta can be one of those women. A pair of simple Jimmy Choo silver 'Raven' sandals, a mirrored Jimmy Choo 'Cosma' Clutch, as well as a pair of Harry Winston sapphire and diamond earrings from 1975, and a newer Harry Winston diamond and sapphire bracelet would complete this absolutely perfect look for Greta.

2014 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala Wish List

Amy Adams is a member of the cast of 'American Hustle' which will be reciveing the Ensemble Cast Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala which will kick off awards season on January 4th 2014. The Palm Springs Awards Gala really kicks off the major awards this year but it is different than most because the honorees are announced in the 2 months prior to the event. With a cocktail attire or fancier dress code this is one of the more dressed down events where most ladies don shorter ensembles and have fun. I would love to see one of my favorite Hollywood red heads wear this amazing gold lame Altuzzara Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress which features a side slit and a plunging neck. There is just something about this look that just makes me think of Amy and I am not quite sure what it is because it is not in her normal realm of style. Finish the look with a gold clutch and a pair of simple gold sandals and Amy will walk the carpet like she owns it.
Camila Alves will be on her husbands, Matthew McConaughey, arm as he receives his Desert Palm Achievement Award for his work in 'Dallas Buyers Club.' Camila has always stood next to Matt as he takes to the red carpet looking nothing short of a stunning trophy wife, though I am sure that she is much more than that. For this event I am going to wish that she wears this black Andrew Gn Resort 2014 knee length dress that features gold coral pattern embroidery and three quarter length sleeves. She really knows how to work a red carpet and I think that this would be the perfect look for her to wear for this event. Just add a simple pair of pointed toe Christian Louboutin black pumps and a red lip and Camila is ready to take the carpet by storm.
Jennifer Lawrence will also help pick up the Ensemble Cast Award for 'American Hustle' with co-star Amy Adams at the 2014 Palm Springs Film Festival. I am clawing to figure out what JLaw will wear for these red carpets because there isn't a whole lot of anything left from the Fall 2013 Couture or Spring 2014 RTW collections from Christian Dior, where she is the face of the brand, so I am re-posting a wish I made for her to wear for the LA Premiere of 'Catching Fire.' While I was highly impressed with her sheer grey Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture gown on that red carpet I would still like to see Mrs Lawrence take to the red carpet in this tea length gown. Finish the look with a black clutch, a pair of black Saint Laurent 'Jane' sandals, and some simple Chopard diamonds will complete this look for this occasion.
Julia Roberts will be taking home the Spotlight Award at the 2014 Palm Spring Film Festival Awards Gala. The star known for her love of black an her menswear inspired layering should wear a modified version of this long sleeved Altuzzara Resort 2014 dress. I would close this dress up on the one side so there is no skin showing on her leg and remove the leather band around the breasts. Add a statement necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels and a pair of black and gold Saint Laurent 'Janis' metal-trim cap toe platform pump will complete this look for Julia and give her a look that I would actually enjoy seeing her in.
The performance that Lupita Nyong'o gave in '12 Years a Slave' is giving her the Breakthrough Performance Award at the 2014 Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala. So far since she stepped out on the scene in September Lupita has been able to snag looks from some of the worlds most coveted designers from brand new collections to custom creations to couture. For this awards show I would love to see the stunning Kenyan actress wear this copper colored Jason Wu Pre-Fall 2014 gown which is reminiscent of stuff out of the 1930's. A a bronze and brown Kotur art deco clutch as well as a pair of bronze Jimmy Choo sandals and simple earrings complete this look which is perfect for an emerging red carpet talent such as Lupita.
Last but certainly not least we have a wish for Desert Palm Achievement Award recipient for her work in 'Gravity' Sandra Bullock. There are two Sandra's that take to the red carpet. One is almost always on the best dressed lists and one is almost always blah. I am hoping that best dressed Sandy is out on the red carpet on January 4th for the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala. If she were to don this green, blue, and goldenrod Aquilano.Rimondi Spring 2014 RTW dress then I be believe that Sandy would look absolutely stunning on the red carpet. A simple satin black Prada box clutch, a pair of mustard yellow Charlotte Olympia pointed toe platform pumps, and some simple Bulgari jewelery will make for the perfect look for Sandy for the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala on Jan 4th.

2014 Peoples Choice Awards Wish List Part 3

Scarlett Johansson has taken 2 nominations, for Favorite Movie Actress and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards on January 8th 2014. The face of Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics and fragrance will no doubt have to wear a requisite frock by the brand sometime during awards season. On the festival circuit between August and November we saw her don one D&G dress at the Rome Film Festival premiere of 'Her' and I am hoping to see her bring something more Hollywood than that dress. This floral embellished Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 RTW floaty mini dress. This is the type of look that I think would look stunning on Scarlett and perfect for this event. I would take the giant coin buckle belt and swap it for one that is just a simple gold band and then add a pair of gold Jimmy Choo 'Lance' Sandals and a gold Jimmy Choo 'Tube' clutch to have the perfect look for the Peoples Choice Awards red carpet
This year Selena Gomez is only nominated for Favorite Female Artist at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards. The pop star might not show up at the event because of her recent lip-synching scandal at the KISS-FM Jingle Ball concert in LA where when it was revealed the starlet dropped a major explicative bomb on stage. If she does take to the red carpet it will be to help build her image back up and this baby pink Versace Pre-Fall 2014 one sleeved cocktail dress would be the right move to make her seem very elegant and back on top. Finish the look with a gold geometric patterned Kotur clutch and a pair of nude satin Charlotte Olympia pumps with a golden mirror heel.
Like gal pal Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift only garnered one nomination for the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards (Favorite Country Artist.) Lately we have been seeing a new side of Taylor, a much more sexy grown up side and I will say I am loving what the 24 year old country music star has been rocking on the red carpet lately. For the PCA's I think that this silver mirror style Tom Ford Spring 2014 RTW long sleeved mini dress would make for a perfect choice for Taylor, who it look like we will be seeing a lot of this year as she has a song nominated for Best Song at the Critics Choice and Golden Globe Awards. This is a great look for a fan voted event and Taylor should save the gowns for the big movie and music academy awards.

Monday, December 23, 2013

2014 Peoples Choice Awards Wish List Part 2

The 'Big Bang Theory' star Kaley Cuoco is nominated for Favorite TV Comedic Actress at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards. I will say that when it comes to her red carpet style I am not always a fan of Kaley, but when she gets it right she gets it oh so right. At the 2013 Emmy Awards Mrs Cuoco stepped out in a deep red Vera Wang ballgown and I about died because it was the best she has ever looked. For this years PCA's I would love to see Kaley wear this lavender Georges Hobeika Spring 2014 RTW tutu cocktail dress. This is a very pretty dress that would look stunning on Kaley while giving her a classy ensemble. A pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti satin peep toe platform pump are what she would normally pick, even though I would much prefer her to wear the runways matching sandals, and some very simple jewelry would complete this look.
Katy Perry garnered 5 Peoples Choice Awards Nominations this year including: Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist, Favorite Song (Roar), Favorite Music Video (Roar), and Favorite Music Fan Following. In the past year we have really seen a shift in what Katy wears for her public appearances. Gone are the days when she wore really fun or shocking ensembles and in are the more sophisticated and mature looks that were far and few between in the old Katy. With so many nominations this year it would surprise me if Katy didn't attend, if not perform, the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards and I think that this pink and brown Cynthia Rowley Spring 2014 RTW full skirted cocktail dress is the perfect look for her to work for the red carpet. I won't give up on that classic 'Katy Quirk' that made me fall in love with her in the first place by pairing this dress with a pair of Christian Louboutin 'Vampanodo' sandals which feature a pink bow on the back of the heel. Finish the look with some simple jewels, a simple hairstyle and makeup, and then Katy will make the Best Dressed lists for this event.
Lea Michele is nominated for Favorite Comedic TV Actress at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards. After the death of fiance Cory Monteith, Lea hasn't really been seen on the red carpet any were but with the release of her solo album and her nomination I am hoping that we will see Lea on the red carpet on January 8th. Lea is one of the few stars that are set to attend that I could actually see snagging a couture look for this event and this blue and white Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture mini dress is absolutely perfect for the 27 year old star of stage and screen. This is a fun flirty look that would not be too stiff or over the top for this type of an event. A pair of blue Jimmy Choo sandals and more simple jewels to just let the dress and Lea's diva-tude make this look sing.
This looks like it might again be the year of Sandra Bullock and with 5 nominations at the Peoples Choice Awards, including Favorite Movie Actress, Favorite Movie Duo (2 nominations in this category one for 'Gravity' with George Clooney and one for 'The Heat' with Melissa McCarthy), Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress, and Favorite Comedic Movie Actress it looks like it might start with a few awards given to her from her fans. Not one to love dressing up for the red carpet I can see Mrs Sandra year this strapless fitted Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW broken glass print cocktail dress. I would remove the hard houndstooth patch on the chest and finish the look with a pair of black leather peep toe Christian Louboutin pumps to keep the look simple.

2014 Peoples Choice Awards Wish List Part 1

Amy Adams is nominated for Favorite Dramatic Movie actress at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards. The very first awards show of the year slated for January 8th, we then go into several back to back to back. The PCA Awards are a much more casual awards show than say the Golden Globes, Screen Actors Guild, or Critics Choice Awards; a nice night for all types of members of Hollywood to let their hair down and be honored by their fans. For this event I would love to see Amy wear this amazing Roksanda Illincic Spring 2014 RTW one shoulder cocktail dress that has every single bold color I love to see her in orange, yellow, purple, and white; all color blocked into a stunning ensemble. Finish the look with a purple Rauwolf clutch and a pair of gold Jimmy Choo strappy sandals. Hair styled into glamorous Veronica Lake waves over one shoulder and simple neutral make-up would just be the icing on top of this absolutely amazing ensemble.
Demi Lovato is nominated for 4 Peoples Choice Awards, including Favorite Music Fan Following, Favorite Female Artist, Favorite Pop Artist, and Favorite Music Video (for Heart Attack) and I am hoping that she will bring it to the red carpet. Back in 2012 Demi really went above and beyond what is expected of a PCA red carpet look in a stunning peach Marchesa gown but I am hoping that this year she will go for something a little more event appropriate. This Saint Laurent Spring 2014 RTW ensemble, that includes a green mini dress and a gold sequin slouchy bolero, is an absolutely amazing look that is perfect for Demi at the Peoples Choice Awards. A pair of gold platform pumps, a red lip and tussled curls (in her natural color which is back not that god awful blue she was trying to rock for a while) thrown over one shoulder and she will have a perfect look on her hands.
Emma Stone is nominated for Favorite Dramatic Movie Actress at the 2014 Peoples Choice Awards and I have to say that I am praying that she takes to the red carpet because she has been missing from it for far to long. I think that this ruby red Elie Saab Spring 2014 RTW embellished mini dress would be a perfect look for Emma to wear for this event. This dress is sexy yet young and sophisticated all wrapped into one look. This is why I love Elie Saab, because he can literally dress anyone from someone in her teens to a sophisticated dame in her 70's. Complete the look with a red Edie Parker clutch and a pair of red Christian Louboutin sandals to ensure that I will die in love with this look.
2013 Peoples Choice Award Favorite Comedic Movie Actress nominee Emma Watson has been all over in how I think she looks on the red carpet in the past year and I am hoping that at this event that she will redeem herself. This black and silver Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2014 RTW mini dress would be a great look for Emma. This modern take on an LBD is a exactly the look that I want to see take to the Peoples Choice Awards red carpet. With a pair of black strappy sandals and a black embellished clutch and Emma will give me an amazing red carpet ensemble.

Dick Clark's 'New Years Rockin Eve' 2014: Fergie and Jennifer Hudson Wish List

The first night of fashion for the year is obviously New Years Eve and each year we see some amazing looks from the Dick Clark's 'New Years Rockin Eve.' We have had Fergie in some amazing Christian Siriano before and Lady Gaga in several Atelier Versace creations. As she is the host of the LA party for 'New Years Rockin Eve' I am expecting some amazing looks from Fergie. Having had a baby a few months back Fergie-Ferg rocked a simple black Versace long sleeved gown at the LCMA Art+Film Gala last month and my first look that I would love to see her wear this amazing Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture long sleeved cocktail dress with a sheer panel down the side. Lady Gaga wore a strapless version of this dress while out and about in New York City last month but I am still hoping to see this version on someone, and who better than Fergie on New Year's Eve. For later in the evening, after midnight on the east coast and Fergie is getting ready for the clock to strike 12 in LA, I would love to see her go for something a little more glamorous by way of this stunning jade colored GH Georges Hobeika Spring 2014 RTW one shoulder gown with a sexy slit and a splice on the breast. This gown is glamorous yet still incredibly sexy which is something that I think Fergie loves, I mean she did write a song entitled 'Glamorous.'
Jennifer Hudson is one of the stars that will take to the screen during the telecast of Dick Clark's 'New Years Rockin Eve' to perform. I am not sure what Mrs Hudson will be performing but I am sure that it will be really good no matter what. Now one thing I am not sure will be good is what JHud will be wearing. Back in October Jennifer debuted a cropped pixie cut but has not been able to give me a look to love. She came close at last month's American Music Awards in her orange and pink Christian Dior gown but it still fell short of what I know Jennifer can do. For her performance, if in Times Square in NYC, I would love to see Jennifer don this amazing black and white Christian Dior Fall 2013 RTW shawl collar wool coat paired with a strapless Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW shattered glass print cocktail dress. Finish the look with black leather gloves ans a pair of purple Christian Dior pumps. If she is performing at the LA party then I would just recommend that the coat and gloves be removed and I will have a winning look from JHud.
