2013 CFDA Awards Wish List Part 3

 We haven't seen much of Leighton Meester since her hit show 'Gossip Girl' ended in December but I am hopeful that she will make a red carpet return at this years CFDA Awards. Leighton is the face of Vera Wang's 'Lovestruck' fragrance and this year the glam designer will be receiving the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award so it surprise me if Leighton isn't their to support Vera. I would love to see Leighton take to the red carpet wearing this black and white jacquard print cocktail dress from the Vera Wang Fall 2013 RTW collection. Leighton is usually known for amazing interesting taste in footwear so I am expecting some amazing Jimmy Choo or Brian Atwood dazzler and some amazing Harry Winston sparklers to complete this amazing red carpet ensemble.
 I have a hate/love relationship with Rita Ora on the red carpet sometimes she looks absolutely fantastic and others its a complete disaster doesn't seem like there is any middle ground. As Rita knows Alexander Wang well it would not surprise me if Rita attends as his guest as she knows how to do downtown glam and could pull off with great aplomb the dressy dressed down looks from Alexander Wang. For the CFDA Awards I would love to see Rita wear this white halter top and pants from the Alexander Wang Fall 2013 RTW collection. Complete this ensemble with her signature red lip and a pair of silver sandals and Rita will be a great ambassador for the Women's Wear Designer of the Year nominee on the red carpet.
And Finally to round out the 2013 CFDA Awards wish lists we have Stacy Keibler. Since she stepped out on the red carpet scene on the arm of George Clooney in the Fall of 2011 Stacy has been showing all of Hollywood that she is one to watch on the red carpet appearing in amazing gowns from the likes of Naeem Khan, Marchesa, and Armani Prive. But for this years CFDA Awards I would love to see Stacy support Accessories Designer of the Year nominee Phillip Lim by wearing this midnight blue 3.1 Phillip Lim Fall 2013 RTW velvet double breasted suit. I would want Stacy to ooze sex appeal wearing this menswear inspired ensemble so I would recommend that she go topless under the blazer highlighting her decolletage with a diamond and sapphire statement necklace from Van Cleef & Arpels, a pair of Casadei black patent leather t-strap 'Blade' pumps, and a cocktail ring would complete this absolutely amazing androgynous ensemble.

2013 CFDA Awards Wish List Part 2

When Emilia Clarke burst onto the red carpet scene after gaining fame from her hit HBO series 'Game of Thrones' she almost exclusively wore Chanel for all of her major red carpet appearances, and while the two were a match made in fashion heaven I am glad that she has been embracing other brands for her red carpet outings so far this year. One designer that she has been wearing a lot of has been Zac Posen and I think that Emilia should wear this wine colored Zac Posen Fall 2013 RTW gown with a matching cape. This gown is perfect because Zac is not nominated but would be in attendance just a a member and supporter of his fellow American designers. Complete this look with a gold box clutch, gold sandals, a gold cuff, and a sleek updo and Emilia will add much needed drama to the CFDA Awards red carpet on June 3, 2013.
Model Hilary Rhoda has been hot on the New York City red carpet scene attending several major red carpet galas, parties, and premieres this year looking best dressed worthy on almost all of her red carpet appearances. This amazing 20's/30's inspired Tory Burch Fall 2013 RTW gown would look absolutely amazing on the model who knows how to work the red carpet. Tory like Zac Posen is not nominated but a fixture at the CFDA Awards as she has been an honoree in the past and I am expected to see her designs take to the red carpet. A sleek silver Judith Leiber clutch, black sandals, and her hair worn up in a faux bob would make this ensemble perfect for the CFDA Awards.
Julianne Hough is someone who I either love or loathe when she steps out on the red carpet as her red carpet aesthetic is extremely bi-polar. I am wishing that she takes to the red carpet at Lincoln Center wearing a gown from CFDA member Naeem Khan's Fall 2013 RTW cream gown with an embellished gunmetal waistband. I am incredibly surprised that Naeem has never been honored by the CFDA with his stunning designs that end up on the likes of international socialites, First Ladies, actresses, models, and singers. Complete this look for Julianne with a pair of cream pumps, a gunmetal clutch, and a sleek up do would complete this amazing red carpet ensemble.
And finally for today we have Kerry Washington to wear an amazing white with floral embroidery Marchesa Fall 2013 RTW cocktail dress with sheer voluminous sleeves. Like everyone else in this post Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig, the chief designers at Marchesa, are not nominated and much like Naeem Khan the ladies have never been honored despite there huge following of their stunning evening wear. Kerry has not been my favorite on the red carpet this year like she has been in the past but I am hoping that the 'Scandal' star will wow me on the red carpet at this years CFDA Awards in this dress. Complete the look with a red Marchesa clutch, gold Christian Louboutin sandals, and her hair worn up in a top knot and Kerry will have a winning look on her hands.

2013 CFDA Awards Wish List Part 1

 The Council of Fashion Designers of America, or the CFDA as it is known, gathers at Lincoln Center every June to celebrate designers in American fashion. This year the ceremony will take place at the home of New York Fashion week on June 3, 2013. Now all of the ladies that are going to be features over the next few days in this list are not confirmed to attend and will not be until I see them walking the red carpet at the event. I have chosen each lady based on past relationships with CFDA members and nominated designers. Allison Williams has stepped out wearing Oscar de la Renta several time in the past year since she has made her mark on the fashion world. Oscar will be receiving The Founders Award in Honor of Eleanor Lambert and Allison would be the perfect date for the classic designer. This lime green gown with grape purple embroidery from the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 collection would be the best option for Allison as it is her classic sophisticated style to the T. Pair this gown with just a pair of simple gold sandals, a gold bracelet, and a classic up do and Allison will make her mark on the CFDA red carpet.
 Anna Wintour is the only woman that is 100% attending the 2013 CFDA Awards as the Council is partnered with Vogue to help launch the careers of promising young New York based designers like Alexander Wang, Prabal Gurung, and Jason Wu. For this event Anna usually wears a business like knee length sheath dress made my an American designer like Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, or Marc Jacobs so many of you might be puzzled as to why I have chosen to put her in this black and grey Balenciaga Fall 2013 RTW dress which is a French fashion house. Well in January the house announced that its new creative director is former CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Award winner and multi time CFDA Award winner Alexander Wang. So I would not be surprised if the famous Vogue Editor in Chief wore a design by him. What would surprise me is if she doesnt wear her standard nude Manolo Blahnik 'AW' sandals and her beaded necklaces.
 Cat Deeley has selected a Monique Lhuillier gown for several of her major red carpet appearances in the past year. Cat wore gowns by the designer for the Emmy Awards and the Costume Designers Guild Awards among many others. If she were to attends as the guest of the designer who would just be attending as a member of the CFDA if she chose to attend I would love to see Cat wear this amazing white patterned Monique Lhuillier Fall 2013 RTW gown. She is one of the few ladies that I have been able to picture wearing this gown on the red carpet and I know she would have no trouble pulling of the glam that this look requires. Complete this look with a gold metallic clutch, gold sandals, and her hair pulled back would create a winning look for this red carpet.
 While I am usually a fan of Christina Ricci on the red carpet lately she has been underwhelming me so I am hoping that she redeems herself on the red carpet of the CFDA Awards if she was to attend this year. I would love to see her wear CFDA member and Women's Wear Designer of the Year nominee Marc Jacobs silver sequin gown from the Fall 2013 RTW collection. I was surprised that not more of this collection was worn for the Met Ball this year but Christina would look fantastic in this liquid sliver gown. Complete the look with a black Edie Parker clutch and some black peep toe pumps and Christina will dazzle and sparkle on the red carpet at the 2013 CFDA Awards
It would not surprise me if Claire Danes attends the 2013 CFDA Awards with designer and friend Ricardo Tisci the creative director at Givenchy who will be receiving the International Award. This is the one chance, besides possibly Anna Wintour, that we have a shot at seeing a non-American based brand on the red carpet. I decided to dig into the Givenchy archives to pick this amazing gold Givenchy Spring 2008 Couture completely embellished cocktail dress. I have been in love with this dress since the first time I saw it on the runway and I am surprised that this didn't get picked up for an Awards Show, Met Ball, or Film Festival in the past but you know what they say you snooze you loose. I would pair this dress with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo 'Lance' sandals and a loose up do would complete this absolutely stunning ensemble.

Amy Adams for the London Premiere of 'Man of Steel' Wish List

Amy Adams will take on the famous comic book character Lois Lane along side Henry Cavill as Superman in this summers expected blockbuster 'Man of Steel.' With no LA premiere scheduled to my knowledge at this point London seems to be the big moment for Amy to wow me on the red carpet. During awards season we saw Amy wear an abundance of neutral colors such as nude, black, grey, and silver so I am hoping to see her wow me at this premiere. Amy and Marchesa have a long relationship together and I think that this knee length peachy cream dress with a train and red crystal encrusted embroidery from the Marchesa Fall 2013 RTW collection is a perfect choice for her for this big premiere. Many will say that this might be too much but with the Cannes Film Festival mostly behind us and new Resort 2014, Fall 2013 Couture, and Spring 2014 collections that are starting to sprout up and will continue to I think that this gown is perfect for this red carpet. Complete the glam ensemble with a red Marchesa clutch, a pair of red crystal encrusted Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps, simple diamond studs, and an old Hollywood updo and Amy will wow on the red carpet!

'This Is The End' Premiere Wish for Emma Watson

Emma Watson stunned in black and white minimalist sequin Chanel Couture at her Cannes Film Festival premiere of her film 'The Bling Ring,' but I am sure that she will get back into her avant garde sporty minis soon enough. On June 3rd Emma will join co-stars James Franco, Jonah Hill, and Seth Rogan for the premiere of another of her films 'This Is The End.' For this premiere I feel like it will be a much more laid back red carpet so Emma's mini love would fit right in. I think that this blue and white patterned Christian Dior Fall 2013 RTW cocktail dress is a prefect choice her Emma for this Hollywood premiere. Finish off this dress with a pair of black leather strappy sandals and pulled back hair and Emma will add the fashion factor to a male dominated red carpet.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: Closing Ceremony & 'Zulu' Gala Premiere

The 2013 Cannes Film Festival will come to a close on Sunday May 26th with a glamorous celebrity packed awards ceremony immediately followed by the premiere of 'Zulu.' Mistress of Ceremonies Audrey Tautou, who is sadly missed on the red carpet during the events, will take to the stage to host the awards ceremony. Audrey looked stunning wearing a custom Yiqing Yin gown for the Opening Ceremony, and I am hoping that she will wow again on Sunday. This navy blue Chanel Spring 2012 Couture gown is something that I would love to see Audrey wear as it is classic yet still glamorous and memorable. Finish with stunning diamond jewelry and black peep toe pump and Audrey will meet if not exceed my expectations for her.
At the Opening Ceremony of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, Nicole Kidman took a huge risk wearing a Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture tea length dress. That risk payed off and I am hoping to see her wow me again on Sunday. This red Valentino Fall 2010 Couture gown has been sitting in the designers archive and I just can not understand why. I think that Nicole would look stunning wearing this 60s inspired gown. The last major red gown moment that Nicole had on the red carpet was her red Balenciaga at the 2007 Academy Awards so she is LONG overdue for another. A rockabilly inspired updo, a red clutch, red sandals, and stunning Chopard diamond earrings would be the perfect toppings to this amazing gown.
Finally we have the final wish for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Miranda Kerr will most likely be in attendance at the Closing Ceremony of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival as her husband, Orlando Bloom, is one of the stars of 'Zulu' which will be the closing film of the festival. Miranda always looks glamorous when she steps out be it to get her divers license renewed, attend a promotional event for Victoria's Secret, or walk a red carpet. For this event I would love to see her wear this amazing cream Naeem Khan Fall 2013 RTW gown. This is a perfect look for someone who will be just attending the event as a plus one but will still allow her to hold her own on the glamorous red carpet. A pair of gunmetal Jimmy Choo 'Lance' sandals, a gunmetal silver clutch, and sparkling diamond jewelry will have all eyes on her.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: Cannes Classics Cleopatra Screening

Tomorrow Jessica Chastain, who made her very first major red carpet appearance at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010, will take to the Palais de Festivals to present 'Cleopatra' staring Elizabeth Taylor in the Cannes Classics selection. I am a huge fan of Jessica's style and I think that this midnight blue Andrew Gn Fall 2013 RTW bell shaped gown is perfect for the red headed actress. I expect that even though she is not presenting her own film during this festival that Jessica will still go big or go home when she takes to the red carpet. Complete this glamorous ensemble with a pair of black sandals and stunning Harry Winston diamonds and Jessica will wow me on the red carpet.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala Wish List Part 3

Last year Milla Jovovich attended the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala wearing a stunning gold Atelier Versace gown. Since the two had such a fantastic paring last year I am wishing to bring the two them back together for this years event on Thursday! This deep purple Versace Fall 2013 RTW gown has been a favorite of mine since it walked the runway adding glamour to the punk inspired collection. This gown needs someone with a diva attitude to pull it off an Milla is definitely one of those ladies who can. Some an amazing pair of Chopard diamond earrings and a bracelet, a silver Swarovski clutch, and a pair of black peep toe pumps would complete this amazing look.
I can not ever recall seeing Nicole Kidman attending an amFAR event but as a member of the jury at this years Cannes Film Festival I am sure that she will be in attendance during the event on Thursday. Since this black and silver Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2013 Couture gown walked the runway in January I have had it reserved for Nicole and I think that she would just look like an old Hollywood goddess wearing this gown. Nicole has been wearing a lot of rockabilly style hair during this festival but a sleek side parted wavey hair would be the perfect style for this gown. Complete with a pair of simple diamond drop earrings, a silver clutch, and a pair of black sandals from Jimmy Choo and Nicole will be set for her first amFAR gala appearance.
Zoe Saldana has a grand friendship with Prabal Gurung and if she doesn't don a creation for her premiere of 'Blood Ties' today then I am hoping that she will don this red gown from the Prabal Gurung Fall 2013 RTW collection for the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala on Thursday. I believe that this gown was made for her and I am praying that she launches the designer into international fame by wearing him for the first time in the history of the Cannes Film Festival. A pair of black sandals, minimal jewelery, and a sleek bun would be the perfect end to this amazing ensemble.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala Wish List Part 2

Gwen Stefani has been a guest of amFAR and Elton John at their respective AIDS research galas and as a L'Oreal spokesmodel it would not surprise me to see her take to the red carpet on the 23rd at this years amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala. I am hoping she does in fabulous style to redeem herself from the tragic moment at the 2013 Met Ball. To do so I have dug into the Armani Prive archive back to 2011 and this navy blue and red Armani Prive Spring 2011 Couture (not RTW! my mistake!) architectural gown. I have been dying to see a celebrity take to the red carpet wearing this gown but as of yet it has not been the case and Gwen has the attitude to pull it off. Complete the look with a sleek ponytail and a pair of red pumps, as presented on the runway, an Gwen will wow me on the amFAR gala red (or should I say white) carpet.
On her first red carpet this year at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival Jane Fonda wowed in an aqua Atelier Versace gown and I am hoping that her wow factor keeps on coming during her run, which I am most certainly sure it will. For the 2013 amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala next week I would love to see Jane wear Georges Hobeika Signature Fall 2013 RTW. Georges Hobeika isn't a brand that we often see on the red carpet and I am disappointed in this but the celebrity following is growing and Mrs Fonda is one of the celebs that turns to him for red carpet gowns. This midnight blue Georges Hobeika Signature Fall 2013 RTW gown is perfect for Jane as it has her required long sleeves and fitted silhouette. A pair of black peep toe Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, a black minaudiere, as well as diamond & sapphire earrings from Chopard and Jane will continue a glam run.
Janet Jackson is a regular at amFAR events which was founded by one of her late brother's, Michael Jackson, closest friends Elizabeth Taylor to help end the AIDS epidemic. We have seen Janet wear the likes of Hadier Ackerman, Marchesa, and Emilio Pucci to these events in the past few years and this year I am hoping the Janet will call upon her friend Donatella Versace to create her gown for this event. Now yes I did say gown and have a cocktail dress shown here. I would like Janet and Donatella to take this gown and have it made into a full length gown for the singer to wear for this years gala. I think that this dress as presented is something that Janet would own but is not quite event appropriate. This gown paired with Christian Louboutin 'Lady Max' black sandals, and a Christian Louboutin 'Marquis' spike embellished clutch and Janet will wow on the red carpet.
While I was misinformed that Kirsten Dunst was going to be in attendance during the opening of the 'Un Certain Regard' selection during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival on Thursday she has been spotted arriving at the Nice airport yesterday. As an amFAR Gala regular I would not be surprised to see the star at the event on Thursday. For this red carpet I would love to see Kirsten wear this electric blue Jason Wu Fall 2013 RTW gown. This gown requires someone who has an air of effortless sophistication and Kirsten is one of the few that I could believe would pull it off. No clutch, a pair of black sandals, a sleek up do, and minimal diamond jewelery will put her on the path to a best dressed look at this years amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala!

2013 Cannes Film Festival: amFAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala Wish List Part 1

On the 23rd of May there will be a grand partnership of Hollywood, fashion, and awareness as amFAR, the AIDS research superpower, hosts their annual amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala at the Hotel Du Caps in Antibes, France just outside of Cannes. Its a rare night where the red carpet has nothing to do with a premiere so everyone will mix and mingle there way while raising funds to help find a cure for AIDS. Everyone attends this event from members of the Jury to the stars of the films being presented and of course the Mistress of Ceremonies. Audrey Tautou is not one to take to the red carpet often but for this event I would love to see the French actress wear this amazing red, black, and white Armani Prive Spring 2013 Couture gown. This is a glamorous yet effortless option for Audrey to wear for this event. Complete the ensemble with a red clutch, black pumps, and simple Chopard jewels to ensure a best dressed worthy moment.
Yesterday French actress Berenice Bejo presented her newest film 'The Past' at the Cannes Film Festival and I am hoping that she will stick around to attend the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala next Thursday. Last year Berenice wore a stunning Giambattista Valli Couture gown and I am hoping that she is able to top that moment this year. If she were to don this gold Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture gown for the event then I am hopeful that she would be able to top herself. Add a gold Salvatore Ferragamo minaudiere and gold Christian Louboutin pumps as well as some canary Chopard diamond earrings and Berenice will make an amazing red carpet appearance.
Recently Diane Kruger was named the face of Chanel Skincare so I am hoping that she will make her mark on the amFAR red carpet. As a new face of Chanel I know that Diane will be the first woman that gets her hands on the Chanel Resort 2014 collection. I think that this black and white gown with a sequined top from the Chanel Resort 2014 collection is perfect choice for Diane as it goes perfectly with her effortless style of red carpet dressing. Complete with a black Chanel clutch, Christian Louboutin 'Super Vic' black and silver crystal encrusted pumps, and stunning Chanel diamond jewelry and Diane will have a best dressed ensemble on her hands.
I had to change my wish for Fan Bingbing at the last minute because the Queen of Cannes wore a similar gown (which I had desperately wanted her to wear) to a premiere on the second day of the festival. So I dug into the Atelier Versace archives to find her the best possible gown for the 2013 amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala. I love this royal blue silk Atelier Versace Spring 2008 Couture gown. I am surprised that I could not find someone wearing this dress and I am in love with this amazing blue gown. A chic up do and black crystal encrusted Christian Louboutin peep toe pumps as well as dazzling Chopard diamonds and Fan will keep on wowing me on the red carpet.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'Only Lovers Left Alive' Premiere Wish List

Androgynous beauty Tilda Swinton will be in Cannes for the 3rd year in a row to promote a film on the 25th. This year Mrs Swinton will be premiering a vampire flick 'Only Lovers Left Alive.' I look forward to seeing what the actress will bring to the red carpet because she has such a unique sense of style. For this premiere I have decided to merge to looks for the actress from the Hadier Ackerman Spring 2013 RTW collection. Tilda and Hadier have a long standing relationship and for about two years now she has exclusively worn his designs on the red carpet so it will shock me if she wears another brand. I would take the black silk tuxedo jacket (pictured center) with a printed lapel and pair it with this black and white polka dotted gown paired with black pants for this premiere. While the Cannes Film Festival is all about glamour Tilda is much more of an edgy person and that is what I am hoping that she will bring to the red carpet.
Also staring in 'Only Lovers Left Alive' is another Cannes veteran Mia Wasikowska. Two years in a row Mia has worn deep red/burgundy gowns for this festival and I am not sure if she will stick to it but my guess is that she will. For this premiere I would love to see the 23 year old actress wear this Armani Prive Spring 2013 Couture embellished gown. This may be a stretch because Mia has never worn a strapless gown on the red carpet but I think that she would look absolutely stunning wearing this smoke and red chevron embellished gown. Just add a pair of black peep toe pumps and Mia is ready to take to the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals for her big premiere.
Nicole Kidman has said that she had fallen out of love with fashion until she took a role last year playing iconic actress turned princess Grace Kelly. Since this she has fallen in love with fashion again and has been taking a lot more risks like her McQueen at the Golden Globes or her Oscar de la Renta at an Omega watch gala. This is the gown that is the most out of the box for Mrs Kidman. I would love to see Nicole wear this with a modified to be completely closed necked or just slightly more modest that the runway version for her 45 years of age. A black embellished clutch, black Jimmy Choo sandals, as well as stunning cluster earrings would be the perfect completions to this edgy modern red carpet look for Nicole for the Cannes Film Festival.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'The Past' Premiere

On Friday, the 17th, Berenice Bejo will debut her latest film 'The Past' at this years Cannes Film Festival. In 2011 Berenice presented her film 'The Artist' that went on to take home the Best Picture Academy Award and garnered a nomination for Best Supporting Actress Oscar as well. Last year after jutting into red carpet fame during awards season Berenice took to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival as the Mistress of Ceremonies rocking ensembles by Louis Vuitton, Prada, Christian Dior, and Giambattista Valli. Berenice took to the red carpet at Cannes wearing two different Giambattista Valli Couture ensembles once at the Chopard Trophy party and again at the amFAR Cinema Against AIDS gala. I am hoping that the Argentinian actress will wear the brand yet again when she premieres 'The Past.' This amazing white Giambattista Valli Spring 2013 Couture ball gown with a gold embellished waist. This is a grand gown that deserves the Cannes Film Festival as the platform for it to be worn. Chopard jewelry, a glamorous up-do, and some amazing gold sandals and Berenice will continue to show why she was last years Best Dressed Newcomer.
Nicole Kidman has really been wowing me on the red carpet lately and I am hoping that it keeps up during the course of this festival. Former face of Chanel No. 5 I believe that Nicole will don a few Chanel looks during the course of the 11 day festival. For this premiere I would love to see her wear this black, white, and red Chanel Spring 2013 Couture floral print sequined gown. I am only not sure if she will wear this because it is incredibly similar to the Chanel couture gown Anna Wintour wore for the 2013 Met Ball. Add a red Jimmy Choo tube clutch, a pair of black Jimmy Choo pumps and Nicole will wow on the red carpet wearing a stunning couture ensemble.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'The Immigrant' Premiere

Marion Cotillard will present her second film of the 2013 Cannes Film Festival 'The Immigrant' on May 23rd adding a little glamour to the end of the festival. For this premiere much like the one for 'Blood Ties' I have dug into the Christian Dior archives to find a gown for Marion to wear. While I do love what Raf Simons has done for Dior the collections are limited as they are hot tickets so I do believe that Marion will wear a custom creation by creative director Mr Simons I am going to put out some wishful thinking. This teal and yellow Christian Dior Fall 2005 Couture gown designed by John Galliano is one of my favorite gowns from this house of all time and I am surprised I have never seen this gem turn up on the red carpet. Of course I would have the gown lined but in gold not nude or yellow. A 1920's finger wave inspired hairstyle, a teal clutch, and some gold sandals are what is needed to add the finishing touches to this amazing gown.
For jury member Nicole Kidman I also looked back the Fall 2005 Couture collection archives. I am expecting amazing things out of Nicole during the course of the festival and I think that this midnight blue Elie Saab Fall 2005 Couture gown is a perfect choice. Now I am sure that since the announcement that she was going to be a jury member designers have been throwing current runway and custom gowns at the stunning Australian beauty. Despite this I think that Nicole would look absolutely in this amazing beaded gown. Add to this amazing gown a blue clutch, and some amazing Jimmy Choo sandals as Nicole was announced yesterday as the new face of the brand, and some amazing sapphire and diamond jewelry by event sponsor Chopard and Nicole will hit another red carpet home run.
Another wish for Mistress of Ceremonies Audrey Tautou to wear while attending the premieres during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival. Face of Chanel No. 5 and a woman who has played the famed designer herself. Another archive pick for the red carpet this amazing gold and blue Chanel Fall 2009 Couture peplum gown would be the perfect option for Audrey to wear during the festival. I am hoping that she fairs better than she did at her photocall yesterday wearing a lackluster Red Valentino sundress. Finish this Chanel gown with a pair of black pumps and she will be absolutely wow me on the red carpet.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'The Bling Ring' Premiere Wish List

'The Bling Ring' may be an Un Certain Regard and not a Official Selection film but the Sofia Coppola directed film is sure to make a splash on the red carpet with a star studded cast. Leading lady Emma Watson is already confirmed to attend the festival to promote the film. This film is her breakaway from the good girl image of her 'Harry Potter' days. While that may be the case I would love to see the star wear this peach and gold Elie Saab Fall 2012 Couture gown for the premiere of this movie. Emma has been opting for edgier looks but I feel that Cannes is a place to revert back to classic sophisticated glamour for a premiere, photocall she can choose her normal edgy cocktail attire. The coloring of this Elie Saab gown is perfect for the young starlet who is capturing Hollywood even more than before. Complete this with a simple formal 'do, a gold clutch, and some gold strappy sandals and Emma will be ready to take to the carpet as her film opens the Un Certain Regard selection on the second day of the festival May 16th.
Star of 'The Bling Ring' director Sofia Coppola's 2006 Cannes Film Festival award winning film 'Marie Antoinette' Kirsten Dunst will also be in attendance at the opening of the selection, for what reason I am not sure of. None the less I would love to see the Chanel devote wear this black tiered Chanel Spring 2013 Couture gown on the red carpet for the premiere. After wowing me in a runway inspired Louis Vuitton gown at the Met Ball at the beginning of the month I am hoping that the actress keeps up her mojo. This is a glamorous gown that I am surprised didn't get picked up by a lucky lady for the punk themed Met Ball. Complete with a Bulgari black and gold clutch, a pair of black sandals, and some stunning gold and diamond jewelery and Kirsten will stun.
Last year Leslie Mann was one of my absolute favorites to take to the red carpet and so far this year she has been making a lot of very mumsy choices when she steps out on the red carpet. I need the woman who stepped out at the Academy Awards last year for no reason wearing a stunning blue Roberto Cavalli gown back. I am hopeful that her trip to the Armani Prive show last July will have some influence on her ensemble during this years Cannes Film Festival. While this amazing green Armani Prive Spring 2012 Couture gown, which still shocks me that it has yet to be worn, may not have been presented at the show that Leslie attend I think that it is an amazing option for the star. With her peachy completion and red hair this gown would look fantastic on Leslie. Complete with an old Hollywood side parted waves, a gold clutch, and some gold sandals she could rival the look of her fashionable co-star Emma Watson.
Last year Makia Monroe jettisoned on to the red carpet scene during the Venice Film Festival wearing a stunning Marchesa gown at the premiere of 'At Any Price' and ended up taking home my One to Watch Award during last years Best of 2012 Awards. So far I am disappointed in the looks that she has given me and I am hoping that she will make an appearance during this years Cannes Film Festival to help promote 'The Bling Ring' which is is also a cast member of. To walk the red carpet for the premiere I would love to see Makia wear this amazing blue and gold Marchesa Spring 2013 RTW gown. The looks from this collection have been under utilized on the red carpet and I think that Makia and Marchesa have had a winning relationship in the past so why break it up now? Just add a pair of gold strappy sandals and a winning smile to complete this look. Again 'The Bling Ring' opens the Un Certain Regard competition and premieres on May 16th.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'Only God Forgives' Premiere Wish List

'Only God Forgives' is the next film that Ryan Gosling will be presenting at the Cannes Film Festival. Back in 2011 Ryan presented 'Drive' during the festival he exclusively wore Salvatore Ferragamo for all of his appearances. Lately Ryan has been a hardcore Gucci devote so it would not surprise me to see him wear a tuxedo my the Italian label for the premiere of this film during this years festival. I think out of all the tuxedos that were presented at the Gucci Fall 2013 Menswear show that this grey with black cuff and shawl collar is what Ryan is most likely to chose. Ryan strays away from the Hollywood standard black silk tuxedo often and because of this that he is one of my favorite men to see take to the red carpet because you never know what it will be that he pulls out.
English actress Kristin Scott Thomas is no stranger to the Cannes Film Festival back in 2010 she was the Mistress of Ceremonies. In that year she wore two stunning Armani Prive gowns and two fashion forward Lanvin custom creations. Well for this years festival and the premiere of 'Only God Forgives' I would love to see Kirstin wear this red and black floral printed Lanvin Fall 2013 RTW dress presented on the runway at cocktail length modified into a full length ball gown. Kirstin modified another Lanvin dress, from the Spring 2010 RTW collection which the runway version was worn by Sarah Jessica Parker, for the Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony in 2010. Complete this look with a black Roger Vivier clutch with a crystal buckle, black Salvatore Ferragamo stain peep toe pumps, and some ruby and diamond jewelery and Kristin will wow on the red carpet. 'Only God Forgives' will premiere at the Palais de Festivals on May 22, 2013 a week after the festival opens.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'Blue Is The Warmest Color' Premiere Wish List

French beauty Lea Seydoux was jettisoned onto the red carpet scene when she helped debut 'Robin Hood' at the Cannes Film Festival in 2010. Since then she has gone on to be a spokes model for Prada and have several successful French films. This year on the second Thursday of this years festival, May 23rd, Lea will take to the red carpet to screen her newest film 'Blue Is The Warmest Color' and I am really looking forward to what she brings to the red carpet. Most of her triumphs have been courtesy of the king of the red carpet gown Elie Saab. It seems only natural that for this years festival and her big premiere that she don another of his designs. I would love to see Lea wear this red lace Elie Saab Spring 2013 Couture ball gown. This is a glamorous gown that not many could pull off but Lea is one. Gold pumps and hair pulled back into a bun are all that she should do too accessorize this gown as it is a big enough statement without a clutch or over the top diamond jewelry.
Nicole Kidman if she attends this event should dig into the Chanel archives for her red carpet moment. Nicole is a former face of Chanel No. 5 perfume and has had a great relationship with Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld. So for this premiere I would pick this ethereal Chanel Spring 2010 Couture pink and silver draped gown. Out of anything that was presented during this collection this is one of the two gowns that shocks me still haven't been snatched up for a red carpet moment, maybe people are afraid of looking like Sarah Jessica Parker at the 2010 Academy Awards. Well I think that if Nicole wore this gown with her hair styled in 20's waves, carrying a silver clutch, a pair of silver sandals, as well as a stunning diamond bracelet courtesy of Chopard. If she employs this exact styling Nicole will have a winning look on her hand.

2013 Cannes Film Festival: 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Premiere Wish List

Carey Mulligan will take to the red carpet at the Palais de Festivals for a second time after her Opening Ceremony premiere of 'The Great Gatsby' to present 'Inside Llewyn Davis' in competition during the festival. For this premiere I am going back to Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2013 RTW collection again picking this black lace ballgown. I think that this is perfect for Carey who we have been missing the glam factor from as of late. Complete this look with a black clutch and a pair of Saint Laurent t-strap pointy toe pumps as well as some more Tiffany & Co. diamonds.
Jessica Biel's new hubby Justin Timberlake is another one of the stars of 'Inside Llewyn Davis.' I am praying that Jessica attends the 2013 Cannes Film Festival as arm candy for her husband. Ever since the two were married late last year Jessica has been on point with her on and off red carpet dressing and I would love to see her on the Cannes red carpet. For this premiere I would love to see Jessica wear this amazing aqua blue Atelier Versace Fall 2012 Couture gown. There have been many of the gowns in this collection that I have been surprised have not been scooped up for the red carpet. Add a pair of silver sandals and simple hair and makeup and Jessica will sparkle on her husbands big night.
Jury member Nicole Kidman should wear this amazing mix of seafoam and blue Valentino Spring 2010 Couture gown. This is a simple gown for Nicole as a judge will have several opportunities to wear show stopping gowns and this is the one very comfortable wish that I have wished for her to wear during the course of this festival. Complete this look with a gold clutch, and some strappy gold sandals and Nicole will bring the effortless glam to the red carpet.
