2013 Rome Film Festival: 'Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon 3D' Premiere Wish List

If you are a normal reader of this site you will know that I am OBSESSED with asians on the red carpet. One whom caught my eye just last year wearing Elie Saab, Georges Chakra, Chanel, and Balenciaga. I am hoping that when Angelababy takes to the red carpet during the 2013 Rome Film Festival premiere of 'Young Detective Dee: Rise of the Sea Dragon' that she will bring the drama like so many Asian starts do when they take to the red carpet. Having already donned Valentino, Christian Dior, Elie Saab Ready-To-Wear whilst promoting this film but I am hoping for high drama during Rome. This deep red Georges Hobeika Fall 2013 Couture major mermaid gown was one of my favorite things to see walk the runway at the show in Paris back in July. I think that this gown is something that I only have a chance of seeing on an Asian red carpets as it is something that is extremely avant garde. Finish the look with Veronica Lake waves over one shoulder and a pair of gold platform sandals and Angelababy will rock the red carpet.

2013 Rome Film Festival: 'Dallas Buyers Club' Premiere Wish List

Camila Alves is not in 'Dallas Buyers Club' but I am pretty sure that we will see her take to the red carpet alongside her beau Matthew McConaughey. Much like Jessica Biel is for Justin Timberlake, Camila is always glam on the red carpet to play the roll of arm candy for Matthew. For the Rome Film Festival Premiere of 'Dallas Buyers Club' Camila should snatch up this amazing royal blue Zuhair Murad Fall 2013 Couture gown with long lace sleeves. This gown is like the definition of Camila, sophisticated with a lot of sex appeal. The lace and sheer inserts in this gown take it to the perfect level. Complete this amazing red carpet ensemble with a pair of gunmetal silver sandals and some simple diamond jewels for an amazing film festival premiere.
After an amazing run supporting her husband, Ben Affleck, during awards season this year wearing the likes of Vivienne Westwood, Oscar de la Renta, Roland Mouret, and Gucci Premiere, I was incredibly disappointed when Jennifer Garner stepped out in a really ugly champagne satin and red lace Dolce & Gabbana dress that just did absolutely nothing for her. I am hoping that she is able to bring herself back to top form for the Rome Film Festival premiere of her latest film 'Dallas Buyers Club.' I think that if she were to don this silvery lace Valentino Spring 2013 Couture high neck ball gown would be the perfect look for Jen to wear on this red carpet. It would be a regal moment on a major red carpet that Jen hasn't had in quite a long time. Finish the look with a pair of silver Salvatore Ferragamo peep toe satin pumps and simple vintage diamonds and Jennifer will shock me when she steps out of her car in Rome for this premiere.

2013 Rome Film Festival: 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Premiere Wish List

When I read that 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' was going to be premiering during the 2013 Rome Film Festival I could not hep but do a little squeal because I am so excited to see what the two leading ladies of the film will be wearing. As Jennifer Lawrence is a current face of Christian Dior I am sure that she will choose a gown from the house for her red carpet appearance. As I was watching the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection walk the runway and this amazing green mermaid gown took to the runway, JLaw immediately took to my mind and I wished right then and there that there would be a major film festival premiere for one of her films and my wish came true. I love when Jennifer wears color because she has a skin tone that can pull off so many different hues that she should wear more color. This dress is just a simple silhouette and all the drama is in the color. Complete the look with a black clutch, a pair of black sandals, a pair of knockout emerald and diamond earrings and Jennifer will wow me on the red carpet.
Elizabeth Banks is the other woman that I am most looking forward to seeing take to this red carpet. I had a hard time choosing between an Elie Saab, Atelier Versace, or Armani Prive. I am sure that we will see Elizabeth wear a Versace look or two during this promo tour and as you all know I love me some Elie Saab, but I ultimately decided to go with an amazing nude Armani Prive Fall 2013 Couture strapless gown. The last time we have seen Elizabeth wear an Armani Prive design was back at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival in a stunning red one shouldered gown at the 'Up' premiere. I loved the pairing then and I think the paring at the Rome Film Festival would be absolutely perfect. Complete the look with a champagne satin Prada box clutch, a pair of light gold strappy sandals, as well as some amazing yellow diamond Chopard diamonds and Lizzy will have herself an amazing old Hollywood moment on the red carpet in Roma.

2013 AFI Fest: 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Closing Gala Premiere

Aside from a brief step out in yellow at the 2013 London Film Festival premiere of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' we have only seen Carey Mulligan in black or white for the most of this year. For the 2013 AFI Fest premiere of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' I would love to see Caret wear this amazing navy Michael Kors Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress with gold embellishments. I think that this is a dress that is not outside of Carey's red carpet realm of opportunity. I think that the 30's style of this dress goes well with Carey's sense of style. Finish the look with a pair of black Saint Laurent pumps and a sleek hairstyle and Carey will have the perfect look for this premiere.
As I have said many a time before, Jessica Biel is the perfect wife and famous plus one. She always brings out all the stops when she is out on the red carpet to stand by her man, Justin Timberlake. For the 2013 AFI Fest premiere of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' I think that this white long sleeved Chloe Spring 2014 RTW dress with studs and long sleeves (minus the flowy underskirt) would be the perfect option for Jessica to wear to support her man. Finish the look with a pair of gold pumps, a gold clutch, and her hair pulled back would make for an amazing plus one ensemble.

2013 AFI Fest: 'Out of the Furnace' Centerpiece Gala Premiere Wish List

Zoe Saldana, as many of my loyal followers know, is one of my favorite ladies to see take to the red carpet. With the AFI (American Film Institute) Fest coming up and Zoe's film 'Out of the Furnace' as one of the Centerpiece Gala premieres I am really excited to see what Zoe is going to bring to the table. Having helped launch Prabal Gurung's brand on the red carpet back in 2009 during the 'Star Trek' promotional tour wearing a stunning one shouldered red cocktail dress, Zoe and Prabal have developed quite the red carpet collaboration together and I can almost always say that I love what the two do together. For the 2013 AFI Fest premiere of 'Out of the Furnace' I would love to see Zoe wear this lime green Prabal Gurung Spring 2014 RTW tea-length halter dress with a rosette embellished bodice. I think that this would look stunning on Zoe, who always goes above and beyond with her red carpet style. Finish the look with a pair of gold Casadei pumps and Zoe has the perfect look for her red carpet premiere.

2013 AFI Fest 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' Gala Premiere Wish List

After a to-young-for-her Marchesa disaster at her New York Film Festival gala premiere of 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty' I would love to see Kristen Wiig redeem herself. I think that this gold Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress with bell shaped sleeves and skirt. I think that this could come off as to young but styled the right way this look would be perfect for the AFI Fest Centerpiece Gala Premiere and redeem herself from this look. Finish the look with a pair of gold sandals and a gold clutch and Kristen will have a perfect look for this premeire

2013 AFI Fest: 'Saving Mr Banks' Premiere Wish List

After closing the 2013 London Film Festival, the cast of 'Saving Mr. Banks' will make their way to Hollywood for the AFI (American Film Institute) Festival opening where they will present the film once again. I think that this dove grey Jenny Packham Spring 2014 RTW peasant dress with ruby red embroidery. I think that this is a simple dress that is perfect for the 54 year old British actress. We don't see a whole lot of Emma on the red carpet and I am not the biggest fan of her wardrobe. This dress would be a pretty change from the very grandmumsy clothes that she usually wears. A pair of silver satin Ferragamo pumps would be the perfect finishing touch to complete this ensemble.
I have not gotten the hype behind Ruth Wilson. After one great look in McQ by Alexander McQueen last year she has failed to really excite. I am hoping when she takes to the red carpet at the AFI Fest opening gala premiere of 'Saving Mr Banks' that she goes softer and turns down the bitch face that she tends to put on when she takes to the red carpet. For this premiere I think that this silvery ice blue Jason Wu Spring 2014 RTW one shoulder origami draped cocktail dress would be the perfect look for Ruth to don for this red carpet. Complete the look with a bold blue clutch and a pair of silver sandals and I think that I might like this look from her.

2013 Hollywood Film Awards Wish List

 The road to the 2014 Academy Awards will begin on Sunday October 21st at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards, the first major awards event of the season. One thing different about this awards show is that all of the winners are announced prior to the night of the event. The 2013 Hollywood Ensemble Award will be handed over to the ensemble cast of 'August: Osage County' on Sunday night and 17 year old Abigail Breslin is one of the members of the cast. Abigail has a dark but flirty and young red carpet style. For the premiere of the film at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival she wore a dark floral Alice + Olivia gown which she paired with a denim jacket to make it just that much more youthful. For the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards I would love to see this pastel colored Giles Spring 2014 RTW camo print cocktail dress. This is a youthful cocktail ensemble that is perfect for Abigail and the event. Finish the look with a pony-tail over one shoulder and a pair of nude Christian Louboutin pumps and Abigail will have the perfect red carpet look.
 Camilla Alves is not being honored with anything at this awards show but I am sure she will make an appearance as she is the wife and arm candy of Hollywood Actor Award honoree Matthew McConaughey, who is being honored for his work in 'Dallas Buyers Club.' Camilla always looks elegant when she is playing the plus one role. I think that this teal Zuhair Murad Spring 2014 RTW long sleeve dress with lace inserts. This dress is sophisticated with a sexy twist which is something that we usually see Camilla do when she steps out on the red carpet. Finish this look off with amazing flowing locks, gold sandals,  minimal jewels and Camilla will finish off this amazing look.
 Julia Roberts is the other member of the ensemble cast of 'August: Osage County' on this list who will be honored with the Hollywood Ensemble Award and is also going to be honored with the Hollywood Supporting Actress Award. I have not been a fan of Julia Roberts on the red carpet since her black and white Valentino Oscar gown in 2001. I was happy to see her wear a bold red Dolce & Gabbana dress for the films Toronto International Film Festival and I am hoping to see her continue wearing bold options all through awards season. The only couture wish on this list comes from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection and I think that this multi colored entirely beaded long sleeved cocktail dress is perfect for Julia and features a sexy open back for a hint of sex appeal. Finish the look with the same nude sandals that she wore with her Dolce & Gabbana dress will make for the perfect look for her to wear Sunday night.
 I will have to say that the woman I am most looking forward to seeing take to the red carpet at the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards is the New Hollywood Award honoree Lupita Nyong'o. Lupita is being honored for her work in the Steve McQueen drama '12 Years a Slave.' The actress made her big red carpet debut at the films Toronto International Film Festival premiere wearing a white and gold custom made Prada gown, and then continued on to sit front row at the Miu Miu Spring 2014 RTW collection, I am predicting a stunning custom Prada or Miu Miu gown if she makes it to the 2014 Academy Awards. But for Sunday nights Hollywood Film Awards I would love to see Lupita wear this amazing red, white, and black Miu Miu Spring 2014 RTW cocktail ensemble that is finished off with beaded fringe on the bodice and waist. I am not usually a fan of the Miu Miu collections on the runway, usually favoring the custom red carpet pieces, but I am really in love with this look. I think that Lupita is one of the few women that I can picture wearing this look and in my head she defiantly is the person that wears it the best. Complete this look with a pair of black sandals and a red clutch and Lupita will have the perfect red carpet look for the Hollywood Film Awards.
I keep hearing the possible Oscar buzz behind Sandra Bullock and I can't actually wait to see her latest film 'Gravity.' I am sure that the Hollywood Actress Award honor from this years Hollywood Film Awards will not hurt her chances of at least scoring a nomination. For her to collect her award Sunday night I would love to see the stunning 49 year old actress wear this rust colored J. Mendel Spring 2014 RTW off the shoulder gown with a sexy slit up to there. I was less than impressed with the red J. Mendel gown Sandy wore for the films Venice Film Festival premiere. I would complete this ensemble with a pair of black and gold Gucci 'Kelis' sandals and a black Gucci 'Hollywood' gold studded clutch to give Sandra the perfect red carpet ensemble for the Hollywood Film Awards.
