'The Family' Premiere Wish List

Dianna Agron fell off the red carpet circuit for a while but reappeared recently during the Giffoni Film Festival wearing a cute Prada printed frock to promote 'The Family' at the festival. If there is a big premiere anywhere in the world, one is not slated in LA or London to my knowledge at this moment, I think that this navy blue Carolina Herrera Resort 2014 strapless cocktail dress with a large lace hem would be the perfect look on her. The dress is simple yet lady like which is the kind of look that Dianna wears best. Complete the look with a pair of white sandals and a simple hairstyle and Dianna will definitely have a winning look on her hands.
Michelle Pfeiffer is one of those women like Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren who just seem to get better and better with age and not resort the the stereotypical old lady frocks and still know how to exude sex appeal in their fifties and sixties. For a premiere of 'The Family' I think that this black and gold Donna Karan Resort 2014 top and skirt are perfect for the 55 year old actress with out being too matronly and still keeping a hint of sex appeal. Finish the look with a pair of black pumps and a black and gold clutch and Michelle will have all eyes on her as she walks the red carpet.

'Insidious Chapter 2' Premiere Wish List

If anyone could bring some glamour to the premiere of a horror film Rose Byrne is it. I am hoping that if 'Insidious Chapter 2' gets a red carpet premiere that the stunning Australian beauty will rock the red carpet in a stunning design that would make me swoon. This white Altuzarra Resort 2014 long sleeved cocktail dress with a split up to there this dress is elegant and sexy all at the same time. I would not pair this dress with the fur stole on the red carpet, but I would pair this with a white and gold Bulgari clutch, a pair of gold Diane von Furstenberg mesh sandals, and simple gold jewels would be the way that I would finish this look for Rose for this premiere.

'Rush' London Premiere Wish List

Recently former 'House' star Olivia Wilde has been experimenting with a lot of bold patterns on the red carpet, which is a welcome change from the all black looks that she was rocking on the red carpet for the longest time. While I do love the bold prints for the premiere of her newest film 'Rush' in London on September 2nd, I think that this black and white Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture cowel neck cocktail dress would be the perfect choice for her. I think that this is classy with a whole lot of sexy. On the wrong person this dress would go the wrong way into tacky-ville, but on Olivia I think that this dress would be sexy and sophisticated. Finish the look with a black and gold Kotur art deco clutch and a pair of black and gold Versace sandals and Olivia will definitely have a perfect look for this premiere in London.

'Diana' Premieres Wish List

Naomi Watts will start her journey to the 2014 Academy Awards soon as she starts to premiere her biopic 'Diana' based upon the life of the famed Princess Diana. From the promotional images that have come from this film the resemblance between the two is absolutely undeniable but I do not believe that Naomi will go down the imitation path during the promo tour for this film. I know for sure that 'Diana' will have a gala premiere in London on September 5th and I am guessing that it will also premiere in New York. For the New York premiere I would dress the blonde beauty in this structured ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2014 ink blue peplum dress. Naomi and Zac Posen are actually good friends and she wears his designs all the time so it will come a surprise to me if she doesn't pull out a look from him during the promotional tour for this film. Finish this look with a matching blue Judith Leiber clutch, a pair of black sandals, and some stunning Chopard diamonds would complete this perfect look for the New York premiere. For London, where I am expecting a huge fan turnout, I think that this cream draped Chanel Resort 2014 gown would be the perfect choice. I am absolutely in love with this absolutely stunning ensemble and I can't believe that it hasn't been snatched up but that may just be because it is on reserve for Naomi for this promotional tour. A Kotur white lace and gold 'Margo' clutch, a pair of gold Chanel sandals, a pair of pearl stud earrings, and a pearl wrist cuff and Naomi will have herself another stunning look for the 'Diana' peremieres.

2013 Emmy Awards: E! Live From The Red Carpet Team Wish List

At any of the major red carpets, be it the Golden Globe, SAG, Grammy, Academy, or Emmy Awards, the E! Live from the Red Carpet team usually dons two looks one for the Countdown to the Red Carpet and one for the actual red carpet. Guliana Rancic is the lead lady on the red carpet with Ryan Seacrest during the actual red carpet and is front and center with her 'Fashion Police' co-stars Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos during the pre-show. During the pre-show we get to see more of what Guliana is wearing so I chose to put the skinny Italian beauty in this Zuhair Murad Resort 2014 flowing chiffon gown. I think that this dress is absolutely amazing and I think that it would be the perfect look for the pre-show. For the red carpet where you usually just see G from about the bust line up I think that this red Andrew Gn Resort 2014 strapless gown with an elegant embellished bust would be perfect yet simple as to not totally steal the show from the celebrities that she is interviewing. As Guliana only has like 3 minuites to completely change I think that pairing both dresses with a pair of gold Jimmy Choo embellished sandals and a few select yellow gold and diamond jewels and she will have her perfect looks for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Guliana's 'Fashion Police' co-star Kelly Osbourne will also be seen at the 2013 Emmy Awards during the live E! coverage with the pre-show and the live red carpet. For the pre-show I think that this amazing grey Pamella Roland Fall 2013 RTW one shoulder mermaid gown would be perfect for the purple haired star. While I am not a supporter of her massive purple growth that she sports growing out of her head but I do not see it changing any time soon. And for the live red carpet event where we will most likely see Kelly sitting on a balcony over looking the red carpet commenting on the red carpet looks of all of the celebrities I would love to see her wear this watercolor purple Dennis Basso Resort 2014 ballgown. This dress would look really pretty puffed out while she is sitting in her directors chair. Again, like Guliana, she doesn't have that much time to change so I am going to recomend that Kelly wear a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti sandals and some simple diamond accessories in her ears and wrist and Kelly will have her winning looks for the event.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Host in a Reality Series Wish List

Cat Deeley has been a regular on the Emmy Awards red carpet and here, like most of her red carpet appearances, she almost exclusively wears Monique Lhuillier. I am going to be surprised if she chooses another brand to wear for this years ceremony where she is nominated for Outstanding Host in a Reality Series for her position on 'So You Think You Can Dance.' I think that this navy blue embellished Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 gown is perfect for the blonde British actress. This is a sexy yet elegant gown that Cat would just look perfect on the red carpet with a black Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black embellished sandals, and some simple diamond accessories.
Last year Heidi Klum took to the red carpet at the 2012 Emmy Awards wearing an aqua blue Alexandre Vauthier gown with head to toe accessories that matched perfectly. She looked like German sex-pot Barbie and at 40 that just doesn't work anymore. Heidi can still be sexy but doesn't need to dress like she is 25 anymore. I think that this white Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture gown with a deep v, broad shoulders, long sleeves, and a thigh high slit would be the perfect choice to still be sexy yet sophisticated. Complete this look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin sandals, some stunning Lorraine Schwartz earrings, and a statement Lorraine Schwartz cocktail ring and I believe that Heidi will redeem herself on the red carpet.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series Wish List

This is the first time I have featured Anna Chlumsky on If I Was A Stylist and she earned a spot by having been on the red carpet in the past and garnering herself a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her HBO Series 'VEEP.' I am going into this pick blind basically as she has never really had any major red carpet spots. For the 2013 Emmy Awards I think that this simple red Pamella Roland Fall 2013 RTW gown would be the perfect choice. It's a simple dress that would look at place on any awards show red carpet. Keep the look simple with a black clutch and black pumps like I am sure that she will do and Anna will have a very pretty look for the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet.
Jane Lynch is a hysterical actress but has a very boxy build that a lot of the time she tries to over compensate on the red carpet with very girly gowns which just do not suit her. For the 2013 Emmy Awards, 'Glee's' Sue Sylvester, nominated for the role for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series, should grab up this dove-y lavender Rami Al Ali Fall 2013 Couture gown. Jane has snatched up a few gowns by the designer in the past and usually had a good result. I think that this gown is the perfect mix of Jane's laid back style and a glamorous gown. Keep the look simple by just adding a pair of silver satin pumps and maybe a matching clutch but that is is to keep this look as simple as possible as Jane looks her best when she keeps things simple.
'Modern Family' star Julie Bowen is one of my favorite television stars to see on the red carpet because she really tries to keep up with the hard hitting Hollywood stars. For the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series for her hit television comedy I would love to see her wear this Andrew Gn Resort 2014 ballgown. I think that this gown with its green and yellow bustier and black skirt is perfect for the event and for Julie. Finish the look with a yellow clutch, a pair of black sandals, and some stunning diamond jewelry and Julie will have an absolutely amazing red carpet ensemble for the 2013 Emmy Awards.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series Wish List

Christina Hendricks has not had a good few years on the red carpet. As a voluptuous woman with large breasts and stunning nonconformist curves, she has had a hard time finding designs that compliment her body shape and when the do they usually do not compliment her pink complexion. For the 2013 Emmy Awards where Christina is nominated yet again for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her role in the hit AMC television show 'Mad Men' I would love to see her take to the red carpet in this wine red Romona Kevesa Fall 2013 RTW gown that would hug her in all the right places and not make her look like she is over exposing or dumpy. Finish this look with matching satin pumps and a matching Judith Leiber crystal encrusted clutch would be the way that I would complete this look to send Christina back to the best dressed lists.
In the past two years Christine Baranski, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for 'The Good Wife,' has brought two very different looks to the red carpet. In 2011 Christine wore a navy blue Zac Posen structured gown and in 2012 she wore a sparkling gold sequined mini dress. And I just think that for this type of an event a gown is a requirement. For this years ceremony I would love to see her wear this magenta Marchesa Fall 2013 RTW gown, which did not appear on the runway but was sold with the collection in pre-order from ModaOperandi.com. I think that this sophisticated design is perfect for Christine who has an elegant look about her. I would have this made to hit the floor removing the slight fishtail hem as originally presented so that Christine would look tall and statuesque, like she is at 5'10", and not short and stumpy. Gold sandals, a gold clutch, and some simple H. Stern jewelry would complete this amazing look for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Emilia Clarke is one of the nominated actress that I am most looking forward to seeing take to the red carpet. This year Emilia has really gown in her red carpet looks wowing me on several occasions in a bevy of different designers like ZAC Zac Posen, Victoria Beckham, Altuzarra, and Christopher Kane. But for the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for 'Game of Thrones' I would like to see Emilia return to the brand that put her on the fashion map, Chanel. Emilia rocked Chanel for the 2012 Screen Actors Guild and Emmy Awards and I am hoping that now that she has quite a bit of red carpet time on her hands that she will finally don a couture design for the 2013 Emmy Awards. While this navy blue Chanel Spring 2012 Couture might be a few seasons back I would still like to see Emilia wear it as it was a favorite look from this collection that never got snatched up to be donned for the red carpet. A simple satin minaudiere in navy, a pair of navy peep toe pumps, as well as simple Chanel Fine Jewelery diamonds in her ears and on her wrist will complete this amazing red carpet ensemble.
'Homeland' star Morena Baccarin, who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for 'Homeland', really made her mark on the red carpet when she stepped out on the red carpet at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards wearing a stunning Valentino Couture gown and I am hoping that she keeps up the best dressed looks. For this years Emmy Awards I would love to see Morena wear this silver Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture strapless corseted mermaid gown. On most this gown would look like a tacky pageant ensemble but on Morena Baccarin I think that this would end up looking like a modern nod to old Hollywood. Simple hair, makeup, and jewelry along with a pair of matching Jimmy Choo sandals would be the way that I would complete this look for Morena and definitely secure a place on the best dressed lists around the world.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie Wish List

After faltering from red carpet looks that I love Helen Mirren worked the red carpet and promotional trail for her film 'RED 2' last month and I am hoping that she keeps it up coming next month at the 2013 Emmy Awards. As an Academy Award winning actress Helen is one of our hopefuls to bring couture to the red carpet at this event as she is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for her HBO film 'Phil Spector.' I think that this dove grey Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown would look fantastic on the 68 year old actress. This year Helen has really decided to have fun on the red carpet. At the 2013 BAFTA Awards Helen debuted her pixie cut in a bold way with sugary sweet bubblegum pink hair and at the LA premiere of 'RED 2' under her teal Elie Saab gown she wore plexi platform stripper pumps. The youthfulness of this look comes courtesy of an open back that many actress over the age of 45 or 50 would run the other way from but I do not think that this would be the case with Helen. A silver Edie Parker clutch and who knows what shoe could be anything from her plexi stripper shoes to a pair of elegant silver sandals we would just have to wait and see what she pulls out of her hat at the Emmy Awards next month.
Jessica Lange has never been a person that I really look forward to seeing on the red carpet because she usually leaves me indifferent to her looks but I am still going to shoot out a wish for her for the 2013 Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for he role in the FX mini series 'American Horror Story: Asylum.' This series keeps reinventing itself every season with a whole new story line and characters with just a few members of the cast transferring from season to season. Jessica has been one of those stars that has been with the series from the start. For the 2013 Emmy Awards I would love to see Jessica wear this sapphire blue Georges Hobeika Fall 2013 RTW long sleeved gown. Unlike Helen Mirren, at 64 Jessica likes to cover up on the red carpet and she tends to look pretty just not anything spectacular. A black clutch and a pair of black pumps would be the way that I finish this look off for Jessica for the 2013 Emmy Awards late next month.
The USA series 'Political Animals' ended up being a Mini-Series but it has still garnered star Sigourney Weaver a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Mini-Series or Movie for her role in the series. For this red carpet I would love to see Mrs Weaver wear this Zac Posen Fall 2013 RTW burgundy gown. I think that this is just a simple and sophisticated look for the 63 year old actress. I do not know whether or not I would pair this dress with the cape or not just because I am not sure if its too gimmicky for Sigourney. Many of my long time readers will know that I LOVE a cape on a dress but I am leaning more towards removing it for this look. A dark metallic grey clutch and a pair of matching burgundy pumps would be the way to finish this look with maybe a few select Fred Leighton jewels around the wrist and maybe in the ear.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series Wish List

Sometimes Amy Poehler isn't the most glamorous woman on the red carpet but she has had her moments and I am hoping that she has one of those moments on the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards. Amy is once again nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role in 'Parks & Recreation.' I think that this bubblegum pick Badgley Mischka Resort 2014 simple gown with waist ruching and an embellished waist band. I think Amy is at her best when she wears something that isn't overworked and just a classic design. I think that this color would be the perfect way to infuse some modernity into the ensemble. A simple silver clutch and silver sandals as well as some select simple diamonds for her ears and wrist would complete this look for her for this years Emmy Awards.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus took home the 2012 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her HBO comedy 'VEEP' and is nominated again this year in the same category. At last years ceremony Julia wore a stunning maroon Vera Wang gown and looked the best that she ever had so I am wishing for the partnership to follow onto this years event. I think that this Vera Wang Spring 2014 Bridal mermaid gown with a floral pattern embroidery would be perfect for this event. I would change the gown from ivory to be a blue color so that the look doesn't come off as bridal but I love the shape for Julia. A black clutch, black sandals, and some simple diamond dazzlers would be the way to finish off this custom look.
Oh Lena Dunham what to do with you? I am NOT a fan of her style because she hasn't learned how to dress her body shape and its sad because I think if she could get it right that she would look beautiful. I think this blue ZAC Zac Posen Resort 2014 gown with a nipped waist and a hip peplum would look really elegant on Lena for the 2013 Emmy Awards. Keep the look simple with a black clutch, black pumps, and very simple jewelry and let Lena take some baby steps to making her way feeling more and more comfortable on the red carpet.
This year will be Tina Fey's sixth and final nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her role as Liz Lemon in the hit NBC comedy '30 Rock,' which ended its run earlier this year. I think that for this years awards show that this black rise fall Marchesa Resort 2014 gown would be perfect for Tina. With newer shows like 'Girls' and 'VEEP' I think that Tina isn't in the main line to win unless they give her the award because of the shows finale. A simple black clutch and black sandals will give Tina an awards show worthy look but one that isn't the most visually interesting. I hope that the comedy ladies don't let me down and work the Emmy's red carpet.

2013 Emmy Awards: Oustanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series Wish List

Last year a pregnant Claire Danes walked the red carpet at the Emmy Awards in a lemon yellow Lanvin gown and ultimately took home the trophy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her hit Showtime show 'Homeland,' for which she holds the same nomination for this year. I am hoping to see Claire really return to top red carpet form after a few dull moments at the White House Corespondents Dinner and the Met Gala. I think that this strapless Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture blue embellished gown would be a perfect choice for the elegant blonde star. Claire's first post baby red carpet look came courtesy of Atelier Versace, and it was a total knockout, so I know that the two make a magic pair. Just a simple pair of black or silver sandals as well as some simple diamonds in her ears and on her wrist and Claire will have another winning look on her hands.
This is only the second time that I have featured Connie Britton on this site. It has only been recently that she has started garnering my attention with looks from Zac Posen, Reem Acra, and Black Halo. The star of 'Nashville' is nominated at the 2013 Emmy Awards for her work on the hit show for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series and I am hoping that she really steps up on the red carpet and gives me a look to talk about. I think that this white and black Reem Acra Fall 2013 RTW floral print gown would be perfect for her for this occasion. I still can't believe that this gown hasn't been snatched up, especially on Oscar night, I was sure that some celeb would have grabbed it right off the runway. A blue clutch, black sandals, simple diamonds and a red lip would be how I finish this look off to give an attention grabbing Emmy's look.
'Mad Men' star Elisabeth Moss is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series yet again and I am hoping that she will take this opportunity to give us an amazing red carpet look which is something that we have not seen Lizzy give us in a while. I think that this navy blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 RTW gown would be a perfect but simple look with an embellished top. I think that when in doubt pick an Elie Saab creation is the way to go. There have not been a whole lot of looks in three years that I have loved from Elisabeth, the entire 'Mad Men' cast for that matter. Add a blue Edie Parker clutch, a pair of simple navy pumps, and a statement diamond cuff and Elisabeth will have a look that will look elegant and glamorous on the Emmy Awards red carpet.
Kerry Washington is one of the few that could bring the high fashion factor to the red carpet at the 2013 Emmy Awards and I am hoping that she really does. Having been snubbed for her role as Olivia Pope in the hit NBC television show 'Scandal' at the 2012 Emmy Awards, Kerry is nominated this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the show this year. I am really looking forward to seeing what she will break out for the occasion. I think that this grey Valentino Fall 2013 Couture ankle length gown with black embroidery in the shape of coral. I am hoping to see her really rock this gown as it is something that I could totally see her rocking this for this event. I would finish this look off with a black Edie Parker clutch, a pair of deep berry satin pumps, and some stunning Chopard dazzlers would complete this amazing red carpet ensemble.
Michelle Dockery has been on and off this year with her red carpet choices. I loved her Alexandre Vauthier gown at the 2013 Golden Globe Awards and her Elie Saab gown at the 2013 White House Corespondents Dinner but I was really disappointed with her Louis Vuitton gown at the 2012 Emmy Awards and her Chado Ralph Rucci gown at the 2013 SAG Awards. I am hoping that Lady Mary from the PBS show 'Downton Abby' will wow on the red carpet next month when she takes to the red carpet for the 2013 Emmy Awards where she has garnered a nomination for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series. I think that this pink Donna Karan Resort 2014 gown would be the perfect choice for her. When a star steps out in a Donna Karan gown on the red carpet they usually just ooze glamour and sophistication which is the formula that Michelle needs to stick to on the red carpet. A gold Kotur clutch and a pair of gold strappy sandals would complete this amazing look for the 2013 Emmy Awards red carpet.
Back before her divorce from Sean Penn, Robin Wright had moments where I loved her look and moments where I hated it. Since then she really hasn't given me anything to get really excited over or to loathe so I am hoping that the actress, who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for the Netflix original series 'House of Cards.' I am hoping that she is just saving all her best looks for the Emmy Awards and Awards Season in the spring. For the 2013 Emmy Awards I would love to see her wear this simple white Jason Wu Resort 2014 draped goddess gown. A blue Kotur snakeskin minaudiere, a pair of silver sandals, a statement diamond cuff, and a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings would be exactly what I would do to add a little spice to this glamorous ensemble for Robin for the 2013 Emmy Awards.
Back in 2010 Vera Farmiga worked the awards season circuit nominated for her work in 'Up in the Air' and in most cases looked beautiful. Lately I have really been questioning her choices, well actually ever since she went blonde I have not been a fan of hers on the red carpet. I am hoping that wearing a tried and true formula will help me grow to like her look at the 2013 Emmy Awards. L'Wren Scott is a Hollywood favorite among the likes of Nicole Kidman, Sarah Jessica Parker, Tina Fey, Amy Adams, among MANY others and I am hoping to add Vera to that list this year. This black and gold art deco L'Wren Scott Fall 2013 RTW strapless gown would look absolutely amazing on Vera for this years Emmy Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series for her A&E series 'Bates Motel.' Keep the styling simple with black pumps and a black and gold Jimmy Choo 'Tube' clutch and minimal jewelry and I could potentially love her look at the 2013 Emmy Awards, but we will just have to wait and see.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 6

Felicity Jones was one of my Ones to Watch in 2012 and then we did not see her take to the red carpet but this year she has grabbed my attention lately. I am hoping that when she steps out at the 2013 Toronto Film Festival to premiere her film 'The Invisible Woman' she will wow and show me why she was one of my Ones to Watch. I think that this green Lanvin Resort 2014 one ruffled shouldered ruffled gown. This gown is one of my absolute favorite looks from the Lanvin Resort collection and I am sure that someone will pick this dress up and rock it on the red carpet and I am hoping that Felicity will be the one to get to it first. A sleek pony tail, a gold clutch, and a pair of gold pointed toe pumps as well as a red lip would be the way that I finish off this amazing ensemble for Felicity for the Toronto International Film Festival.
Mila Kunis made a red carpet return to top form earlier this year on the promotional tour for 'OZ: The Great and Powerful' and I am hoping that the fashion just keeps on coming during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Mila will be in town to premiere her film 'Third Person' and I am hoping to see her rock the red carpet in a glamorous ensemble. For the premiere I would pick this sapphire blue Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture cocktail dress. I think that this dress would be sophisticated yet still sexy on Mila. I have not been wowed by a Mila/Elie collaboration since the lilac Elie Saab gown that Mila wore to the Academy Awards the year that she was nominated for her work in 'Black Swan.' A pair of blue Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps and simple jewelry would be the way that I would finish off this look for TIFF and Mila.
Finally we have the final wish for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and its for Scarlett Johanson for her premiere of 'Under the Skin.' For her Venice Film Festival premiere of the same film I want to see Scarlett wear a sexy yet classic and sophisticated Marchesa gown and I think that for Toronto ScarJo will go for something shorter and sexier. I think that this black Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture long sleeved cocktail dress would be perfect for Scarlett for this premiere. I think that with a dress like this that makes a major statement just a simple pair of black Christian Louboutin pointed toe pumps would be the way to accessorize this dress. Finish the look with old Hollywood waves and a bold red lip and Scarlett will have her second best dressed look of the festival. 

Keep an eye on the Facebook and Twitter pages during these festivals too see all the best look from the red carpets.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 5


This is the only film that the stunning Jessica Chastain will be premiering this year is 'The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby' which is disappointing because it doesn't seem like a film that will garner the stunning actress any awards season recognition. Aside from that I am expecting Jessica to bring it to the Toronto International Film Festival like she always does on the red carpet. I think that this cornflower blue Christian Dior Spring 2013 Couture cocktail dress is perfect for Jessica who doesn't like to carry a clutch. This was one of my favorite looks from the Christan Dior Spring 2013 Couture collection and I am still surprised that no one, including any of the Dior ambassadors like Marion Cotillard or Natalie Portman, have snatched this dress up. Just a simple pair of sparkling Christian Louboutin pumps, a sleek updo, and simple diamond earrings would be the perfect way to complete this look for Jessica for TIFF.
After wearing several Christian Dior looks this  year I am still certain that after this season of being a spokeswoman for Jimmy Choo that she will ultimately become a spokesmodel for Christian Dior. But before that happens Nicole will take to the red carpet at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival to premiere her latest film 'The Railway Man.' I think that this jade green Christian Dior Resort 2014 50's inspired cocktail dress. The last outing of Dior that Nicole made was a black mini dress at the 2013 CMT Music Awards which was a little too twee for her but I think that this dress is age appropriate and classic but yet still sexy. Finish the look with a pair of silver Jimmy Choo sandals and simple hairstyle would make this look absolutely amazing.
Olivia Wilde has a sense of style that sometimes I just can't get behind but when she gets it right she gets it oh so right. I am hoping for her premiere of 'Rush' at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival that she will get it oh so right. I think that this white Alexandre Vauthier Fall 2013 Couture gown with long sleeves, a deep v, and a slit up to there would be a sexy confident choice for her to make for this premiere. In the past few years I have felt that a lot of Olivia's choices have been dumpy and old looking and that is nothing that she should even be in the same sentence as because she is only 29 years old. Save the dumpy clothing for when you are 90 hun, stay with glamorous elegant and sexy choices. Finish the look with a pair of silver Christian Louboutin sandals and a silver Anya Hindmarch glitter clutch and Olivia will have the perfect look for her TIFF premiere.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 4

 Angelina Jolie has played the role of the Best Plus One so far this year on the arm of Brad Pitt has he traveled the world promoting 'World War Z' and I am sure that she will once again play arm candy for him as he premieres 'Twelve Years a Slave' at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Angie gave us a look that is totally going to end up on several Best Dressed of the Year lists at the 'World War Z' Berlin premiere wearing a sculptural white Ralph & Russo cocktail dress and stunned in a black Saint Laurent gown at the London premiere of the film as well. I am hoping to see her wear this silver and grey Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown for the red carpet at TIFF and is simple enough to not overshadow the films stars, even though she is Angelina Jolie. A silver Edie Parker clutch and a pair of silver Salvatore Ferragamo satin pumps would be the only things that I would use to finish off this absolutely amazing red carpet ensemble.
Berenice Bejo will premiere 'The Past' at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival and I am extremely excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet. She was one of my favorites during the Cannes Film Festival peaking at #8 out of over 140 looks in her stunning Alexis Mabille blue coat and white gown. I think that Berenice will go back to the brand that was loyal to her as she grew to fame whilst she was nominated for an Academy Award for her film 'The Artist,' Elie Saab. For this premiere I would love to see her wear this amazing red Elie Saab Resort 2014 gown with lace inserts with just a simple Kotur clutch and red sandals. Berenice just oozes effortless French style and like I said I am extremely excited to see what she is going to wear at TIFF next month.
Jennifer Aniston will be in Toronto next moth and the main headline coming out of this the speculation that there will be a Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie/Jennifer Aniston rendezvous. I could care less to be honest. Jen and Brad split almost 8 years ago and Mrs Aniston is engaged to become Mrs Justin Theroux soon. I am just hoping that Jennifer will not make it onto my worst dressed list. If she wears this grey and blue strapless Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture cocktail dress without the weird arm and neck details then I can believe that she would make the right choice and wow me on the red carpet which she can not usually do. The last time I was wowed by a Jennifer Aniston look was her bold red Valentino Couture gown at the 2013 Academy Awards. I just think that as long as the look is age appropriate, not Valentino, and not black that Jennifer could have a winning look on her hands because I am completely over her wearing all of the things that I had mentioned. Just a simple pair of black peep toe Salvatore Ferragamo pumps and maybe her beach-y locks worn in a messy up do to combat the serousness of the rest of the look and Jennifer will have a look that I might actually like.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 3

After premiering 'Kill Your Darlings' during the 2013 Venice Film Festival, Elizabeth Olsen will keep the momentum going by flying to Toronto with co-star Daniel Radcliffe to premiere the film during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. Venice is where I expect to see Elizabeth don a grand designer gown and at Toronto I think Elizabeth will tone it down with a much simpler cocktail ensemble. I have chosen this classically draped black Balenciaga Resort 2014 cocktail dress. Last month Elizabeth wore a white top and black shorts from the same Balenciaga for Comic-Con and I am hoping that she will grab another dress from that collection. Finish this look with a simple pair of black sandals and simple diamond earrings will be the perfect way to complete this look for Lizzy.
Hailee Steinfeld will have her second film to premiere during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival 'Hateship/Loveship' alongside co-stars Kristen Wiig, Nick Nolte, and Guy Pierce. For this premiere I would love to the the sixteen year old actress wear this amazing red, black, and white Prabal Gurung Resort 2014 sporty gown. I either love a rise and fall hemline or I don't and I think that this would be one of the times that I love it because it makes this look much less formal and much more appropriate for the Toronto International Film Festival. Finish the look with a chic pair of black Christian Louboutin sandals and a high sleek ponytail and Hailee will have a perfect elegant yet age apporpriate ensemble for the Toronto International Film Festival.
In the last year Australian actress Melissa George has really let me down. She went from the woman who always look sexy yet sophisticated in the likes of Victoria Beckham, J. Mendel, and Armani Prive to wearing a lot of looks that are just overly edgy or all together unimpressive. I am hoping to see her revert back to the star that I fell in love with on the red carpet when she premieres her film 'Felony' during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. I think that this ruby red strapless Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture embellished column gown would be perfect for this red carpet sans the neck scarf that it was paired with on the runway. A red Edie Parker clutch and a pair of red satin pumps as well as a sleek updo would complete this perfect look for TIFF and give Melissa a knock out look which is not something that I have seen from her in a while.
Sandra Bullock has had a pretty great year with her red carpet style and I don't see it slowing down anytime soon. After her film 'Gravity' screens as the opening film of the 2013 Venice Film Festival it then head to the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival for a premiere there as well. Like Elizabeth I am expecting Sandra to bring all the Hollywood glamour to Venice and bring a more casual cocktail dress for Toronto. I think that this navy blue Aquilano.Rimondi Fall 2013 RTW cap sleeved cocktail dress that features a peplum of sorts due to the sculptural pockets. I think that this is a sophisticated choice for Sandy to wear for TIFF and that she would look absolutely stunning in it, in a way that we have never seen from her outside of a gown. Just a pair of black satin Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps would be the only accessory that I would pair with this amazing dress as it is a work of art all on its own. Sandy should wear her straight locks over one shoulder and apply a bold red lip to complete this ensemble as she premieres 'Gravity' at TIFF.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 2


Emilia Clarke who has become the main face for promotion for her hit HBO series 'Game of Thrones' and it is not hard to see why, she is absolutely stunning and knows how wear clothing so well. Well next month Emilia will take to the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival to premiere her latest film 'Dom Hemingway.' Last year Emilia showed her relationship with the House of Chanel most notably at the 2012 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the 2012 Emmy Awards and I am hoping to see her wear this amazing silver Chanel Fall 2013 Couture gown. She has not worn a Chanel Couture creation as of yet and what better platform than a major film festival to do so. A silver clutch, a pair of silver sandals, and some dazzling Chanel Fine Jewelry would be the amazing completion to this amazing red carpet ensemble.
During the 2013 awards season season Jennifer Garner shined as she took to the red carpet in support of her husband, ARGO director and star, Ben Affleck. She wore amazing looks by Vivienne Westwood, Roland Mouret, Gucci Premiere, and Oscar de la Renta. Well I am hoping that she will go back to Oscar for her look for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of her film 'Dallas Buyers Club.' This blue and white Oscar de la Renta Resort 2014 peplum cocktail dress is what I think that Jenn should grab up for this major red carpet. The only thing that could cause this look not to make it on Jenn is the fact that Anna Wintour wore a different dress with this print to the 2013 CFDA Awards and it seems that when the Queen of all Fashion Media wears a print that the lookbook or runway dress never sees the light of a red carpet which is so sad because they are usually some of my absolute favorite looks. With that said if Jennifer snatches this dress up I would just finish it off with a pair of black satin Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps and a pair of diamond and sapphire earrings and she will have another red carpet hit on her hands.
Julianne Moore mostly stuck to black and white during the 2013 Awards season donning Tom Ford and Chanel Couture so if she is to step out to join her co-stars Joseph Gordon Levitt and Scarlett Johanson to premiere their film 'Don Jon' I hope to see the stunning red headed actress don some color. This seafoam green Alberta Ferretti Resort 2014 goddess draped gown would look amazing on the stunning red haired actress. I have always been a fan of a red head in any shade of green and I think that this gown would be no different on Julianne. Simple gold accessories including a pair of gold strappy sandals and some gold and diamond accented jewelry would be the perfect ways to complete this amazing look for the Toronto International Film Festival.
The main female star of 'Don Jon' is the stunning blonde bombshell Scarlett Johanson. While I am hoping that she will have a great gown at her Venice Film Festival at the premiere of 'Under the Skin,' which will get a feature for its Toronto International Film Festival in just a few days, I think that Scarlett will wear short and flirty and sexy for this premiere during Toronto. If you didn't get that yes ScarJo will be premiering two films during this festival. For the 'Don Jon' premiere I would love to see her wear this light pink Zac Posen Resort 2014 sculptural peplum dress which is flirty and sexy in a very classic bombshell way. I could totally see Marylin Monroe wearing this dress if she were alive and young today. A pair of gold strappy sandals and hair worn up in a simple up do would be the perfect way to finish this look for this premiere.
And finally to round up today's whirlwind wish list for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival we have Reese Witherspoon who will be in town to premiere her film 'Devil's Knot.' A few months ago Reese was arrested in New York City sporting a dark brown hair color but I think that during TIFF that she will be back to her classic blonde locks that made her famous. For the red carpet I would love to see Reese wear this very cute and flirty Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture emerald green embellished cocktail dress. I think that Reese has an amazing sense of style and was one of my favorites at the 2013 Academy Awards in her blue Louis Vuitton gown and I am hoping that she keeps it up at TIFF. The runway green satin pumps, an emerald green Edie Parker clutch, and simple diamond and emerald jewels would be the way that I would style this look for Reese for this years Toronto International Film Festival where I am hoping she will wow me.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Premieres Wish List Part 1

The Toronto International Film Festival will open on September 5th with the film 'The Fifth Estate' which is based on the life Wiki-Leaks founder Julian Assange. Stunning Swedish actress Alicia Vikander, most known right now for her role in the 2012 incarnation of 'Anna Karenina,' will be seen in this film as well. I am hoping to see her take to the red carpet on the opening night of TIFF. She has started growing numerous friends in the fashion world like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Rodarte, and Elie Saab. The light blue heavily embellished Elie Saab couture gown that Alicia wore at the 2013 Academy Awards, just as an attendee not a presenter or nominee, was one of my favorite looks of hers and I am hoping that the partnership continues. To premiere her film on opening night of TIFF I would love to see her wear this emerald green Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture column gown with an embellished tulle lace train. At TIFF this would be the perfect look for a premiere after last year where couture gowns ran rapid and the level of glamour took a step up. Add an emerald Edie Parker clutch, a pair of green Elie Saab satin pumps, and a simple sweet updo and Alicia would look absolutely fantastic as she continues to gain her spotlight.

Keira Knightly will be in Toronto for the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival for the premiere of her latest film 'Can a Song Save Your Life.' Last year Keira helped up the anty for fashion by wearing a glamorous black Elie Saab couture embellished ballgown for the premiere of 'Anna Karenina' at the festival. I am hoping that she keeps on bringing glamour by wearing this amazing white Chanel Resort 2014 pearl accented draped gown. Keira has had an amazing relationship with the House of Chanel for quite some time and they know how to make red carpet magic together. Finish this look with a matching clutch and pumps as well as some simple diamond and pearl Chanel Fine Jewelry and Keira will have another red carpet hit on her hands courtesy of Chanel.
Hailee Steinfeld will join Keira Knightley during the Toronto International Film Festival to premiere 'Can a Song Save Your Life' as well. The 16 year old actress has been hitting major red carpet highs and lows this year. Among her highs were her House of Holland dress at last nights Teen Choice Awards and her safety pin embellished Donna Karan Atelier at the 2013 Met Ball and some of her lows come from Michael Kors at Comic Con and Valentino at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. I am hoping that Hailee will live up to her red carpet potential standing up against fashion heavy hitter Keira. I think that this bubblegum pink Christian Dior Resort 2014 50's style a-line dress that zips down the front would be a great choice for the young star. I think that this look is extremely youthful yet sophisticated as well as modern and classic all rolled into one very chic dress. I would pair this with a sliver Jimmy Choo glitter 'Candy' clutch and a chic pair of Jimmy Choo silver sandals. If  she does as I have said she will without a doubt be able to hold her own during TIFF.
Lea Seydoux will make a red carpet return after a very successful run during the Cannes Film Festival where she promoted her film 'Blue is the Warmest Color' which will also screen during the Toronto International Film Festival. Having already received the Palme d'Or during Cannes for this film Lea is expected to take this film all the way to the 2014 Academy Awards, at least for Foreign Language Film that is, but before that she will take to the red carpet at TIFF. For this appearance I would love to see the beautiful French actress wear this Andrew Gn Resort 2014 gown which consists of a red and white coral print bustier and black full length skirt. This dress has potential to go one of two ways, very kitschy because of the coral print or extremely elegant because of Lea's sophistication. I believe that on Lea this dress would be a knockout winner. Finish it off with a pair of black satin Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe pumps, a pearl white Valentino Fall 2013 Couture clutch accented with a red coral shaped clasp, sleek hair, light eye makeup, a bold red, and minimal jewelry and Lea will keep her streak of fabulous red carpet looks going during TIFF.
