2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards: Jessica Biel & Keisha Whitaker Wish List

Jessica Biel was, sadly, supporting her husband at home during the American Music Awards, but I am hoping that at the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards the lovely couple will take to the red carpet. Justin will no doubt look dapper in a Tom Ford tuxedo and I am hoping that Mrs Timberlake will wow just alongside him. If she dons this Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW strapless bustier and cigarette pant ensemble I think that that could be a wish easily come true. Since attending the Christian Dior Resort 2014 presentation in Monaco back in May, Jessica has donned Dior twice once a custom leather dress and then a Spring 2013 Couture cocktail dress. This look would be elegant, sophisticated, yet modern and edgy. Finish the look with a pair of black, white, and yellow Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW pointed toe pumps, a black Christian Dior clutch, a pretty pink lip, and slicked back hair into a pony tail will make for the perfect look for this event for Jess.
Keisha Whitaker was by her husband, Forest Whitaker's, side during the 'The Butler' promo tour and I am sure that that will continue through the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards where he will receive the 2013 Tribute Award. For this event I would love to see Keisha wear this amazing powder blue Marchesa Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress with 3-D floral embellishments. I think this dress is so sophisticated and lady like which is something that Keisha goes for when she steps out to support her husband. Finish the look with a pair of gold sandals and a gold clutch and Keisha will be the perfect arm candy.

2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards: Scarlett Johansson & Shailene Woodley Wish List

Scarlett Johansson had quite the up and down promo tour for her film 'Don Jon' which she is nominated for Best Actress for. An aqua Roland Mouret disaster in New York and too short and bland Saint Laurent in Toronto just lead to ugly looks from the star who I know has better potential than what she has. For the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards I think that this Stella McCartney Spring 2014 RTW black sheer over skirt cocktail dress would be the perfect look to help ScarJo get her sexy back. Finish the look with a blue Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black Saint Laurent sandals, and sexy old Hollywood waves swept over one shoulder and Scarlett will have the perfect sultry look for the Gotham Independent Film Awards red carpet.
Shailene Woodley has never been someone who's style I admire because she rarely looks better than alright. Even though thanks to her role in the film 'The Spectacular Now' Shailene is nominated for Best Actress at the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards. I will say even though she favors the designs of Calvin Klein, each time that Shailene has stepped out in a design from a British based brand, such as Mary Katrantzou and Christopher Kane, she has always ended up looking her best. With that in mind I thought about what to put Shailene in for this event another British designer came to mind, David Koma and this electric blue and white Spring 2014 RTW. This dress is a modern take on a classic shilouette which makes it something that I have already fallen in love with. A simple pair of blue or white sandals and her hair pulled back into a tight sleek pony tail will make for the perfect look and one that would actually see her on the best dressed lists.

2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards: Lupita Nyong'o & Rooney Mara Wish List

Lupita Nyong'o is the woman I am most looking forward to seeing take to the red carpet, aside from Queen Cate of course, at the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards. The stunning Kenyan actress has been the one to watch since she arrived on the scene at the '12 Years a Slave' premiere at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival in a custom Prada gown. Since then she has wowed in custom frocks and couture ensembles for almost all of her appearances and I am not complaining. For the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards, were Lupita is nominated for the Breakthrough Award, I would love to see her wear this amazing ruby red Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture strapless cocktail dress. This dress is elegant and I am hoping to see her wow me at this awards show. I would complete the look with the matching runway pumps, a red Edie Parker clutch, and a bold red lip to ensure that I am completely wowed.
Rooney Mara is known for her black and white looks on the red carpet and I am hoping to see her step out of that box as she represents her film 'Ain't Them Bodies Saints' which is nominated for Best Picture at the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards. This floral embroidered Balmain Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress with a flouncey hem. I just see this dress as something that would look so elegant on Rooney and out of the box with it's pastel color scheme. A pair of silver pumps and her hair slicked back would complete this perfect look for Rooney for me.

2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards: Carey Mulligan & Cate Blanchett Wish List

The road to the 2014 Academy Awards started back in October with the 2013 Hollywood Film Awards and will continue with the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards on December 2nd. Carey Mulligan is not nominated for any awards but her film 'Inside Llewyn Davis' is nominated for Best Picture. As she isn't nominated I think that this white Elie Saab Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress with 3/4 length sleeves and sheer panels is perfect. I have been really conflicted on Carey's style and I am hoping that I will love what she wears and if she wears this Elie Saab dress with a pair of silver sandals or pumps and simple jewels, and shock with a bold lip and I will fall off my seat in love with Carey on the Gotham Independent Film Awards red carpet.
As the first round of nominations come out I am already planning what I want to see Cate Blanchett to wear to the 2014 Academy Awards but we have a long way to go until we get there. For the 2013 Gotham Independent Film Awards Cate is nominated for Best Actress for her film 'Blue Jasmine,' which I am still dying to see. For this red carpet I am hoping to see the Queen of the Red Carpet wear this Andrew Gn Spring 2014 RTW one shoulder geometric black white and gold cocktail dress. I think that this dress would just stun on Cate as it is a classic silhouette but is still extremely modern and edgy. Finish the look with a gold clutch, a pair of black and gold peep toe pumps, and Cate will show why I call her the Queen.

2013 Kennedy Center Honors Wish List

I am so sorry to all of my followers that this post has come so late today but I have been very sick, but like they say in the theater 'the show must go on.' The 2013 Kennedy Center Honors will present this years production to Washington DC on December 8th and will be broadcast on CBS on December 29th. Caroline Kennedy, daughter of former president John F Kennedy, always provides the opening and closing remarks at the event. She has done so wearing some fabulous brands like Rochas and Michael Kors. This year I would love to see her wear this amazing Carolina Herrera Resort 2014 blue, black, and white gown with some red details. This dress is so beautiful and I can just see Caroline wearing it as the dramatic wall of honorees names rises and she comes forward to the plexiglass podium to deliver what she has to say.
The woman that I am most looking forward to what she will be wearing is First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Having won my heart at this event wearing Vera Wang, Naeem Khan and Peter Soronen, and aside from her gold Michael Kors lamé gown last year (which landed her on my worst dressed list) Mrs. Obama has always looked fabulous at this event. This amazing pink Vera Wang Fall 2014 Bridal strapless mermaid pleated gown with romantic roses and layers. I am so in love with this gown and hope to see it on someone at some point and Michelle is the perfect person to wear this gown. Finish the look with a pair of gold pumps, a statement necklace, and a statement bracelet and Michelle will have the perfect look for this event.

'Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom' London Premiere Wish List

On December 5th Naomie Harris will take to the red carpet at the Odeon Leicester Square in London for the Royal European Film Premiere of her latest film 'Mandela: A Long Walk to Freedom.' So far the promo tour for this film, which has included stops at the Toronto International Film Festival, the AFI Fest, as well as individual premieres in LA, New York, and Johannesburg, and had been a wonderful delight of amazing looks. I am hoping that this being a royal premiere that Naomie will make an amazing entrance in couture. This amazing emerald green Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture strapless sweetheart neckline ball gown will be the perfect choice for this huge premiere. A gold and emerald Edie Parker clutch, a pair of gold sandals, as well as some simple gold and diamond jewelery and Naomie will have this amazing red carpet moment.

2013 American Music Awards: Miley Cyrus


Miley Cyrus is set to be a performer tomorrow night at the 2013 American Music Awards and I am actually looking forward to seeing what the wild child of pop music will wear for the red carpet. I will say that while Diane Kruger, Anne Hathaway, and Cate Blanchett are still at the top of clients that I dream of having one day, but Miley is also on that list because I think I get her but I can refine her style so that she doesn't always end up on the worst dressed lists. I think that this chiffon printed Emilio Pucci Spring 2014 RTW maxi gown with a sequin embellished bodice is the perfect look for Miley. It is edgy and sexy with out being ugly and slutty. Finish the look with a pair of edgy high heeled black gladiator sandal boots with gold hardware and her hair styled in the fuax-hawk pompadour that she favors and Miley will have the perfect balance of fashion and edge.

2013 American Music Awards: Ciara, Jennifer Lopez, & Jessica Biel

Ciara is also nominated for a few awards at the 2013 American Music Awards on Sunday and will also be presenting. I am hoping to see the stunning singer take to the red carpet and wow me on the red carpet. This lavender Versace Spring 2013 RTW long sleeve gown might be 'covered' kind of but is still extremely sexy. The sheer panels and cutouts along with the chain details make it not your grandmothers gown. Finish the look with a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti peep toe pumps and sleek straight locks will make sure this was an absolutely stunning red carpet ensemble.
Jennifer Lopez will be on hand Sunday night at the 2013 American Music Awards as a performer and will also present the first ever Icon Award to Rihanna. I am hoping for a major DIVA moment from Jennifer on the red carpet as we have not seen her go full on DIVA in a very long time and we are due for a best dressed diva moment. Now many who followed the looks at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival might take a different stand on the fact that I am choosing this black Stephane Rolland Spring 2013 Couture mermaid gown with a sheer section showing part of the leg. Paz Vega wore a different gown from this collection with the same detail and did not have the best result. What I say to them is that Jennifer has the DIVA attitude that was missing in Paz's ensemble. Finish the look with sexy waves, a pair of black Christian Louboutin embellished sandals, as well as some amazing diamond jewelry and Jennifer will have the most amazing red carpet ensemble.
Having been the most supportive wife attending the Time 100, the Grammy's, VMAs, Cannes Film Festival, as well as film premieres on the arm of hubby Justin Timberlake I am kind of excited to see if Jessica Biel will take to the red carpet on his arm Sunday night at the 2013 American Music Awards. For this event I think that this jade green Elie Saab Spring 2014 RTW gown is a simple yet perfect look for her to attend this event wearing as to not outshine anyone who is nominated including her husband, who will no doubt be wearing Tom Ford. Finish the look with a gold clutch, a pair of gold Christian Louboutin pumps, a gold cuff, and a pair of gold drop earrings and Jessica will be the best dressed plus one.

2013 Golden Horse Awards Wish List

Many readers will know that I love an Asian red carpet, mostly because we are more likely to see extravagant avant garde looks than we are on other red carpets around the world. On Saturday the 23rd some of the biggest names in Chinese film will gather for the 2013 Golden Horse Awards. Nominated for Best Leading Actress at this years awards ceremony Guey Lun Mei should go big or go home in this Andrew Gn Resort 2014 ball gown. This sophisticated yet still modern look, consisting of a black ball skirt and lime and yellow strapless bustier, would make for an amazing red carpet moment. Finish the look with a black Roger Vivier crystal buckle clutch and a pair of black pumps and I think that Guey would shine on her big night.
Sammi Cheng stepped out during the 2013 Cannes Film Festival wearing a glittering nude Talbot Runhof long sleeved creation, but to her disadvantage Heidi Klum had worn it weeks earlier. Also nominated for Best Leading Actress, Sammi can redeem herself with the brand by donning this Talbot Runhof Fall 2013 RTW blue and silver sequined gown with one caped sleeve. This gown is edgy yet glamorous which seems like it would fit very well with Sammi's style. A simple black satin clutch and a pair of simple black satin peep toe pumps to keep all the focus on the dress.
Shu Qi is known on the asian red carpets as one who usually brings a very girly regal glamour to the red carpet but there have been a few steps out of that style for her this year and as she is nominated for Best Leading Actress at the 2013 Golden Horse Awards I am hoping to see a big bold look from her. Shu Qi is one of the few ladies that will grace this red carpet that has the ability to be loaned a couture creation and I think that this black Valentino Spring 2013 Couture lace ball gown would be a perfect choice for Shu to wear on the red carpet. This is a very sexy villainess look where as she usually would pick a sweet princess gown. Finish the look with her hair swept back and up, as not to take away from all the shoulder and neckline detail of the dress, and a simple pair of black pumps and she will have a look that would make her look like a sexy temptress.
Now the princess, or well should I say queen, moment will most likely come from my Queen of Cannes Zhang Ziyi at this years 2013 Golden Horse Awards. The stunning Chinese actress always thrills me when she takes to the red carpet because she has such a range of looks. I am praying to see Zhang wear one of the stunning gowns from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection at this awards show. This dove grey ball gown would look just like a second most glamorous skin on her. Simple diamond jewelry and a pair of silver sandals as well as a simple up do will ensure that Zhang will make it on the best dressed lists.

2013 American Music Awards: Rihanna & Taylor Swift Wish List

Rihanna started this year off really strong in her red chiffon Azzendine Alaia gown at the 2013 Grammy Awards but she has not been having the greatest style run going much more for a boyish grunge look, much thanks to her RihannaXRiverIsland collection. At this years awards Rihanna is a nominated for 4 awards, will receive the first ever Icon Award, and will be among the many performers at this event. With all this in mind I am hoping that she will step up her fashion game for the 2013 American Music Awards. This amazing sexy, yet still sophisticated, avant-garde Marchesa Spring 2014 RTW gown which is mostly sheer would just give me goose bumps of delight. This gown paired with a pair of Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 bondage cut-out boots, a punky hairstyle, a collection of rings, and a bold red lip would just make me die for Rihanna all over again.
Taylor Swift has been trying, aside from her red Elie Saab at the CMA Awards, to look more grown up on the red carpet. I am happy for this because seeing her in overly embellished princess gowns was starting to get really boring, not that I don't love them but they get stale when that's all someone wears. For the 2013 American Music Awards, where Taylor has 5 nominations, I would love to see her step out in not a gown or even a cocktail dress but this nude colored Monique Lhuillier Spring 2014 RTW strapless embellished jumpsuit. I think that event though that if this were a gown it would be exactly the embellished princess gown I don't want to see her in, but turning it into a jumpsuit brings this amazing (yet subtle) edge. Finish the look with a Charlotte Olympia perspex clutch with a nude pouch inside, a pair of nude Charlotte Olympia 'Octavia' sandals, a pink lip, and straight locks with blunt bangs to ensure that I will fall out of my seat with disbelief when Taylor takes to the red carpet at the 2013 American Music Awards.

''Inside Llewyn Davis' Premiere Wish List

I can not say that I am in love with Carey Mulligan, she is either a total hit or a complete disaster, and more often than not she is the later. I do not understand why either. She is such a beautiful woman who the worlds most coveted designers just throw clothing at, but very rarely does she step out in something other an black or pearl white and its usually very simple and blah, and if its not the dress its bad hair and make-up. When she finally takes to the red carpet for the final screening of 'Inside Llewyn Davis' I am hoping that magic will be made. This periwinkle and navy blue Stella McCartney Spring 2014 RTW lace halter cocktail dress would be a big step out of the box for Carey and I think that she would look spectacular in this ensemble. Just a simple navy Prada satin box clutch and navy Christian Louboutin satin peep toe pumps would make for the perfect accessories to complete this ensemble for Carey.

'The Monuments Men' Premiere Wish List

Cate Blanchett is amongst the long list of stars, and the only major female, in the new movie 'The Monuments Men.' This film seems like its going to be a film that will end with more selected theaters which makes me think that it will only be screened in New York. This means that it will be a less formal premiere and this amazing lavender Burberry Prorsum Spring 2014 RTW ensemble with a lace top and embellished lace skirt will make for the perfect look. Cate has not worn Burberry on the red carpet before and I am thinking that this color would look amazing on her. Finish the look with a pair of nude pumps and Cate will have the perfect look for this premiere.

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' LA Premiere Wish List

 Jennifer Lawrence has not really had all that great of a run promoting 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.' I had just high expectations for her but have been thoroughly disappointed in her looks so far. After three back to back looks from the Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture collection I am starting to hope for more. This tea length strapless Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW dress would be a welcome change of pace. While I have not been a fan of her clothing choices her shoe game has been on point and I am sure that there will be another wonderful pair that Jennifer will wear, hopefully a pair of pink Casadei for Prabal Gurung pumps to compliment this gown would be perfect. Jennifer should style her new pixie cut in a very Audrey Hepburn way and finish the look with a pink lip to ensure that she will have a best dressed on lock.
Now Elizabeth Banks has had this promo tour on lock. I have loved every single one of her looks this tour, from her Jason Wu in London, to her Elie Saab's in Oslo and Berlin, and her Alexander McQueen in Paris. On Monday night she will take to the red carpet in LA for one of the last premieres of this promo tour. With six films premiering (including The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1) I am looking forward to seeing a lot more of the blonde actress on the red carpet. I am hoping that she will bring the last of her favorite designers to the red carpet for the LA Premiere. This amazing deep blue Atelier Versace Fall 2013 Couture gown would look amazing on Lizzy. This gown would have to be modified for her because the neck piece actually is connected to the red of the gown via a strip down her back. Complete the look with a matching blue Edie Parker clutch and a pair of blue Christian Louboutin satin peep toe pumps and I will fall out of my chair, have a heart attack, and die a happy man.

2013 American Music Awards: Carrie Underwood Wish List

I have basically given up hope that I will ever love another Carrie Underwood look in my life. At the 2013 CMA Awards last week there was not one of her 9 looks that I actually liked. I am hoping that she can get her act together between now and the American Music Awards on November 24th. This pretty pink Elie Saab Spring 2014 RTW gown with a lace bodice and sexy slit would be a perfect look to help Carrie make me fall back in love with her style. Too often she dresses like a prom or beauty queen and while that was cute when she first came on the scene she refuses to grow out of that stage and it is becoming quite stale. A gold clutch and a pair of gold sandals would ensure that Carrie has the perfect look for the 2013 American Music Awards

Sunday, November 10, 2013

2013 American Music Awards: Alicia Keys & Arianna Grande Wish List

Alicia Keys has had a pretty good year on the red carpet and I am hoping that she ends it with yet another glam look on the red carpet. The R&B singer, who is nominated for 1 American Music Award, would look killer stunning in this black liquid sequin Saint Laurent Spring 2014 RTW one shouldered gown. I will admit that I have finally succumbed to liking some of the amazing pieces that came down the Spring 2014 RTW runway. This sleek design paired with a simple black and silver clutch, a pair of black Saint Laurent sandals, and simple diamond will make sure that Alicia looks sleek and sexy as she attends the 2013 American Music Awards.
Ariana Grande looks like she is 15 but in actuality she is 20 years old, I'm actually exactly 2 months older than her, but I also look 8 years older than here. But enough about me. Ariana is nominated for New Artist of the Year at the 2013 American Music Awards. I am sure that we will see her take to the red carpet in a cutesy vintage inspired look. This cornflower blue Romona Kevesa Spring 2014 RTW strapless a-line dress is perfect for Ariana as it is sweet without being too over the top Hollywood glam for a music awards ceremony. Finish the look with the runway belt, a gold clutch, and a pair of gold pumps and Ariana will have the perfect look for the AMA's

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' London Premiere Wish List

Monday will bring the start of the international promotional tour for 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.' I cant not wait! I am so excited to see what Jennifer Lawrence will bring to the red carpet. Will she be exclusively Christian Dior, she is a spokesmodel for the brand, like fellow model Natalie Portman was during her 'Thor: The Dark World' premieres? Or will she surprise us wearing other brands for the big premieres. I think that for the London premiere that there is no shot that we will not see any other brand on Jennifer than Christian Dior. I think that for this premiere that this red two tiered Christian Dior Fall 2013 Couture strapless gown. I have mixed feelings about Jennifer in Dior but I do believe that this gown will be absolutely amazing. With her new pixie cut, which she did because her hair was fried and she wanted to rebuild it, a red Dior clutch, a pair of gold sandals, and some simple jewelry Jennifer will have a perfect look for this premiere.
I have been sad that I have not seen a whole lot of Elizabeth Banks on the red carpet this year because she is usually a favorite of mine. For the London premiere of 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' I would love to see the lover of the avant-garde wear this amazing emerald Schiaparelli Fall 2013 Couture, sari inspired gown. This collection was created simply as a tribute and is not being produced, much to the sadness of many fashion lovers. Like with the Tilda Swinton wish earlier this week, I am still holding out hope that we will still get to see some of the creations on the red carpet. Elizabeth would compliment this gown so well and I would just die if she wore it. A gold Edie Parker confetti clutch, a pair of gold sandals, and some Veronica Lake waves over one shoulder and simple emerald jewels will finish this look and breathe life into a cold London night.

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Premiere Wish List

Last year we saw Cate Blanchett take to the red carpet in London (in Givenchy) and Wellington, New Zealand (in Antonio Berardi) to premiere 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.' I am hoping that this year we will see Cate take to every red carpet that is possible to premiere this film (mostly just because I love to see her wear fabulous clothing on the red carpet.) As the film is mostly filmed in New Zealand this is where the cast usually gathers to have the world premiere of the film. Now I am going to forgive Cate for the god awful hideous Christian Dior quilt she wore during the Deauville American Film Festival but I think that she could redeem herself with the brand by wearing this absolutely amazing black with blue crystal embellishments for the world premiere. Recently we have seen Cate move away from the classic Hollywood glam looks that we love on her to wear more fashion-y avant garde looks and I have to say that I love it. A year ago I would have never put Cate and this gown on the same post. A black clutch, a pair of black pumps, and some simple jewels would complete this look and make me die once again for this woman.
After Wellington usually comes London, as of right now a date can not be confirmed for the Royal Gala Premiere. For this premiere I am wishing to see Cate wear this amazing dove grey Marchesa Spring 2014 RTW gown, that was sold in pre-order on ModaOperandi. Cate has not worn a Marchesa design before but recently she has been experimenting will all kinds of new designers. I have been really wowed by the new collaborations and I think that this gown would look amazing on Cate. This dress is in total contrast to the Christian Dior wish as this is very classic and feminine while the Dior is avant garde and edgy. To meet the royals in this premiere I think that this is appropriate. Finish the look with just some simple diamond jewels and a pair of silver sandals and Cate will have another winning look on her hands.
Last but not least I am creating a wish for Cate Blanchett for the LA Premiere of this film. We have not seen her attend one for 'The Hobbit' yet nor is there one confirmed. I might just have created it because I wanted to create a wish for my favorite woman Cate to wear my favorite red carpet designer Elie Saab. Much like with Marchesa, Cate has never worn a design by Elie Saab and I am very upset about this because I just think her beauty with his designs would be a match made in heaven. This emerald green Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture gown with a lace watteau train would literally make my heart stop beating the moment I saw it. The color on Cate would be fantastic and a rare treat because she usually sticks to softer colors or black and white. Finish the look with an emerald Edie Parker clutch, a pair of the matching Elie Saab emerald satin pumps, and some amazing vintage Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry and a hospital trip to restart my heart would be certified.

2013 Rome Film Festival: 'Snowpiercer' Premiere Wish List

We have not seen enough of Tilda Swinton on the red carpet this year, especially with 2 movies on the festival circuit, and I am hoping that during the 2013 Rome Film Festival she will take to the red carpet to premiere her film 'Snowpiercer.' During Fall 2013 Couture fashion week Christian Lacroix presented a capsule tribute to Schiaparelli. While the collection did not and will not go into production I am still hoping to see a lucky few grab up some of the looks for the red carpet. Tilda is one of those few and this amazing black, white, and gold Schiaparelli Fall 2013 Couture collection. This is an edgy design that I believe would look fantastic on Tilda, and she is one of the few women in Hollywood that could totally pull off this avant garde ensemble.

2013 Rome Film Festival: 'Romeo & Juliet' Premiere Wish List

Despite the only promotion that was done for 'Romeo & Juliet' being an LA Premiere back in September the film will still have a red carpet premiere during the 2013 Rome Film Festival. Star Hailee Steinfeld was not amongst the 'Best Dressed of September' in her Prabal Gurung dress at the LA premiere, mostly because I thought it was too grown up for the 16 year old actress. This bright yellow Giambattista Valli Fall 2013 Couture gown is a fun youthful choice that I would love to see on Hailee. She has had so many great looks in the past but recently I just think that she has gone too grungy for her red carpet good, she really should stick to sleek and fun as those are her best red carpet ensembles. Finish the look with gold Brian Atwood platform sandals, a gold clutch, and a simple fun up-do and Hailee will wow in Rome.

2013 CMA Awards Host Carrie Underwood Wish List

Carrie Underwood has been the Hostess with the Mostest for the CMA Awards for as long as I can recall. This is usually her best night of fashion as she has multiple costume changes. As the hostess, a nominee, and presenter Carrie really shows up all of her talents; but before she takes to the stage Carrie must take to the red carpet. For the red carpet I have chosen to wish for Carrie to wear this amazing tangerine orange Zuhair Murad Resort 2014 halter neck embellished chiffon gown. This is a dress that is completely out of Carries norm for her red carpet dressing, its much more overtly sexy and I think that this is exactly how Carrie should go.
To open the show I think that this pastel lavender based Dennis Basso Resort 2014 ball gown. Carrie was the first person that I thought of when I saw this gown and I just know that she has to wear it for the 2013 CMA Awards. Dennis Basso is a totally under appreciated designer on the red carpet and I think that the world needs to see more of his designs and Carrie should be one to help do this. Next is this navy and gold Romona Kevesa Spring 2014 RTW mullet gown, which I think is this amazing modern look that I would love to see Carrie wear. Now she cant just wear all ballgown, even though I totally would love to see her do that, so I picked this black, white, and hot pink Christian Siriano Resort 2014 geometric print strapless cocktail dress. As you can tell I am mostly going totally left of what Carrie would normally wear so that she can have an amazing set of new looks as her overly embellished gowns and cocktail dresses are starting to get really stale.
After the quick break from gowns in that Christian Siriano number I would put Carrie back in a flowing cream Naeem Khan Spring 2014 RTW embellished halter gown. This is a favorite from the Spring 2014 RTW collections and I can not see who gets their hands on it first. I think that Carrie would look absolutely stunning in this amazing gown. Follow that with another short number this time a floral embellished Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 RTW cocktail dress. I am a little unsure if Carrie could grab this dress right off the runway but it totally fits in the country theme of the night. And finally Carrie should go out with a bang wearing this black Reem Acra Spring 2014 RTW tulle ball gown with silver beaded embellishments on the bodice. All of these looks look absolutely amazing, would look amazing on Carrie, and would be the perfect looks for the 2013 CMA Awards.

2013 Rome Film Festival: 'Gods Behaving Badly' Premiere Wish List

Sharon Stone has had a great year on the red carpet wearing designs by Versace and Roberto Cavalli. She really shined in her 3 Roberto Cavalli gowns during the Cannes Film Festival and I am hoping to see her keep up her track record from then during the Rome Film Festival premiere of her film 'Gods Behaving Badly.' While she might not be the first person to come to mind when I think of Elie Saab but this navy blue one shouldered gown from the Elie Saab Fall 2013 Couture collection is something that I would totally love to see Sharon wear. This gown is a mix of high glamour and sex appeal which can embody Sharon's sense of style. Finish the look with some fabulous diamond and sapphire earrings, a pair of navy Salvatore Ferragamo pumps, and a silver Salvatore Ferragamo minaudiere to give just the right amount of accessory to have an award winning look.

'Thor: The Dark World' LA Premiere Wish List

Natalie Portman wore a Dior gown with a weird texture, that I didn't like from the runway, for the New York City Ballet Fall Gala; but when she has stepped out in London, Paris, and Berlin to premiere 'Thor: The Dark World' she has stunned in other amazing Christian Dior ensembles. For the LA Premiere of this film I am hoping that Natalie will really wow me. I think that Natalie should take this pink Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW asymmetrical embellished cocktail dress and have it lengthened into a full length gown. It would almost remind me of an avant garde Rodarte look that Natalie used to favor so much on the red carpet. A pair of silver sandals, a pink clutch, simple hair and make-up will finish off this amazing red carpet ensemble.
I have been surprised that Elsa Pataky has not taken to the red carpet during the 'Thor: The Dark World' promotional tour on the arm of her husband, Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth. During the time that Chris was traveling the world earlier this Fall promoting his Indy racing film 'Rush,' his beautiful Spanish wife, Elsa, was always within reach and always wearing amazing designs. For the 'Thor: The Dark World' LA Premiere I think that Elsa should wear this amazing black beaded Naeem Khan Spring 2014 RTW cap sleeve top and cigarette pant ensemble. This is the perfect look for a star in her own right who is taking to the red carpet to support her famous husband. Finish the look with a black clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps, and a bold red lip to have a perfect red carpet look for the occasion of her mans big premiere.
