Chanel Fall 2014 Couture Presentation Wish List

Diane Kruger is a Chanel Couture front row regular and I am hoping to see her take a seat at the Grand Palais on July 8th. Rarely does Diane take to the red carpet and I not love what she is wearing and I think that her donning this Chanel Resort 2015 floral dress and sweater ensemble would be yet another that I would be able to fall in love with. Not many people could pull off this ensemble from head to toe but I think that Diane is amongst those that could. A gold Chanel clutch and a pair of nude Stuart Weitzman "Nudist" sandals would complete this front row ready look.
Emilia Clarke has not sat front row at a Chanel show as of yet which is very surprising since it was Chanel that brought her into the fashion limelight. If Emilia were to fly to Paris to attend the Chanel Fall 2014 Couture presentation on July 8th I would love to see her ewar this white Chanel Spring 2014 Couture floral embroidered cocktail ensemble. I figure that this is a cropped blouse over a strapless cocktail dress. Whether or not Emilia wears the cropped blouse or just wears the strapless dress underneath I would love to see this ensemble on her. A white classic Chanel quilted chain strap shoulder bag and a pair of silver pumps would make for the perfect front row moment.

Schiaparelli Fall 2014 Couture Presentation Wish List

Only two celebrities have worn ensembles from the Schiaparelli Spring 2014 Couture collection, Sarah Jessica Parker and Tilda Swinton. Tilda has actually worn two looks one an off the runway look for her Berlin International Film Festival premiere of "The Grand Budapest Hotel" and then a custom cocktail dress for the LA Film Festival premiere of "Snowpiercer." This would make Tilda a perfect person to sit front row at the sophomore collection for the Schiaparelli revival house. I would pick that finale "bride" look for Tilda to sit perched front row. The cream pant suit with embellished palm on the lower half of the jacket. I would figure that Tilda will wear the runway's flat sandals and I would have Tilda work a red lip and her signature edgy hairstyle to finish off this ensemble.

Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture Wish List

Berenice Bejo wore a stunning, yet event inappropriate, Giambattista Valli red ensemble for the 2014 Golden Globes and then really disappointed me in simple black Alexis Mabille at the Cannes Film Festival (she really should have swapped those gowns). With that said I would love to see Berenice seated front row at the Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture presentation on July 7th. This white dress embellished with 3-d red florals would be a perfect option for the occasion. I would pull Mrs Bejo's hair up into a sleek bun, give her a red lip, and a pair of red Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals to ensure that she is a bright spot on the front row of this couture show.
Diane Kruger hosted a dinner recently with Giambattista Valli and MyTheresa.com in her honor. I am hoping that after a few red carpet appearances this year that Diane will take to the front row at the Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture presentation next month. I would pick this wine/burgundy Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 RTW long sleeved mini dress for Diane to wear for this occasion. This is a fun sexy yet sophisticated dress. Diane had a few missteps on the red carpet trail but as of recently I am loving absolutely everything that she is wearing again. I would love to see Diane support her friend and brilliant fashion designer as she loves to wear his designs on the red carpet. A pair of gold sandals and simple hair would finish this look perfectly for the front row.
Jessica Biel has the ultimate friendship with Giambattista Valli, he custom designed the attire for her wedding, but she has never (to my knowledge) sat front row at one of his shows. This comes as a huge shock to me as I always think that some of Jessica's best looks come courtesy of his creations, so when his Fall 2014 Couture show comes around I am praying that Jessica will show up and grace the front row. This red and pink Giambattista Valli Resort 2015 georgette wide sleeve dress that features a high round neck, a cape-style blouson bodice with ruched elastic cuffs and a full skirt with embroidered lip trim at the waist. This is a pretty look and I think Jessica would rock the hell out of it with pin straight locks, a light pink lip, and a pair of red Casadei 'Blade' pointed toe pumps for a perfect Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week front row ensemble.
And my last wish to see seated front row at the Giambattista Valli Fall 2014 Couture presentation during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is Lupita Nyong'o. Lupita has worn 3 looks from Giambattista so far this year and each one has been stunning and I cant wait to see many more looks from the two going forward so I would love to see Lupita start her 2015 Awards Season gown search seated front row at this presentation. I would pick one of the stunning mini dresses that has not been worn as of late from the Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture collection. This black dress with mint draped hit detail and apple green and gold embellishments would look stunning on Lupita. I would pair this look with a pair of black platform sandals to give Lupita just a little extra height and Lupita will rock this front row like a true fashionista, which she already is.

Christian Dior Fall 2014 Couture Presentation Wish List

On July 7th the glamouratti will descend upon Paris for Fall 2014 Haute Couture Fashion Week and one of the must see shows with all the the hottest celebrities is bound to be Christian Dior Couture. Surprisingly we have not seen as much Dior on the red carpets so far this year, but then again we are only just under half way done. I am hoping that all the Dior spokesmodels all take to the front row this season and honestly most, not all, have been knocking it out of the park recently. Charlize Theron has been a Dior spokesmodel for the longest being the continuous face of the J'Adore Dior fragrance. Aside from her bland black lace Dior Resort 2015 cocktail dress as the "A Million Ways to Die in the West" LA premiere every outing in Dior that Charlize has given has been a Best Dressed of the Year worthy look. I think that this asymmetrical Christian Dior Resort 2015 cocktail dress that is made up of three contrasting prints. Only few ladies could pull off this look and Charlize is defiantly one of them. A pair of green pumps and a red lip is all I would add to this look to make it front row ready.
Recently, as in all of her Dior looks this year except her Golden Globes dress, Jennifer Lawrence has been knocking it out of the fashion ballpark yet again. I think she and her stylist, whom I believe is still Rachel Zoe, have finally learned that sportier styles are what suits Jennifer the most. With another installment of "The Hunger Games" series premiering this Fall and possibly the search for film festival/awards season starting I am expecting to see that the 23 year old face of "Miss Dior" handbags sitting front row judging possible red carpet ensembles. I would pick this Christian Dior Resort 2015 two tiered dress which features a floral brocade and striped silk. I think that this is the perfect look for JLaw to rock for the front row. A pair of white pumps and one of the handbags that she represents in white would finish off this look perfectly.
Marion Cotillard, once the biggest champion of Christian Dior, has fallen from her queen's throne into dispair. I think that she wants to break free and wear much edgier designs that those that come from the classic house and her attempts at making them edgy have made her fall flat. She needs to be like other spokesmodels and rock the Dior when she wants to be pretty and other brands when she wants to be edgy. This white Christian Dior Spring 2014 Couture mini dress with a white cut out over skirt would be an elegant and pretty choice for Marion to make if she sits front row like she usually does. Marion can be very attached to wearing head to toe runway looks from Dior but in all actuality I can not stand the ugly clodhoppers that Raf Simons paired with this beautiful dress, so for Marion I will keep Christian Dior shoes but recommend that she pick a pair of metallic silver pointed toe cage pumps from the Christian Dior Spring 2014 RTW collection to add an edgy yet ladylike statement to this dress. I really hope Marion starts to wow me again and this look might just help that case.
Earlier this year Michelle Dockery wow'd in a simple Christian Dior sheath dress with the much loved broken glass metallic brocade print at the "Non-Stop" LA Premiere. With such a beautiful look under her belt I would love to see the "Downton Abby" star seated front row amongst the spokesmodels. I would pick this black Christian Dior Fall 2014 RTW sheath dress with an off the shoulder, side lace up, and embroidered details. This is a sporty take on lady like dressing both of which Michelle can pull off. I would finish this look with a red lip and red pumps to ensure that spokesmodels do not outshine Michelle.

2014 BET Awards Wish List Part 2

Coming off the release of her Vogue cover, where she of course wore Prada, Lupita Nyong'o will take to the red carpet at the BET Awards on June 29th. I would love to see the stunning actress, who has rarely had a misstep on the red carpet since she came on to the scene, wearing this black and white Monique Lhuillier Resort 2014 ensemble with a long sleeved top and high waisted shorts. This is a breezy more casual cocktail ensemble perfect for the BET Awards where big stars show up in cocktail dresses and reality stars go way overboard. I would bring a pop of color to Lupita's red carpet ensemble via a pair of bright metallic blue pumps and a red lip, while toning down her favored blue eye shadow for the night. Should she take my advice she would be well on her way to a Best Dressed Award for her first BET Awards appearance.
Nicki Minaj is nominated for Best Hip-Hop Artist and will be performing come the BET Awards Sunday night. This year we have seen Nicki not just tone down her signature theatrics but be almost downright boring on the red carpet, despite her choices of all Alexander McQueen gowns so far this year. I don't think that this will slow down anytime soon and since I can't see her wearing anymore of the all remaining 3 gowns from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2014 commercial collection I figure she will just have to venture into the Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014. I pick this black long sleeve Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2014 gown with a plunging neckline and lace inserts for Nicki to wear on the red carpet. Black pumps, simple jewels, and a red lip would finish this look off perfectly for the awards show on Sunday night.
After her #FreeTheNipple statement at the CFDA Awards I figure we will see a more toned down Rihanna come the BET Awards Sunday night. RiRi is nominated for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and I am really hoping that she rocks the red carpet. This relaxed Balenciaga Resort 2015 ensemble with a white top and black slouchy pants would look stunning on Rihanna who has been rocking black island waves in messy up-dos lately. I would keep this look really simple with just a pair of black Christian Louboutin pumps, an edgy diamond earcuff, and a very simple diamond bracelet. A red lip would finish the look off perfectly giving Rihanna a relaxed look perfect for the BET Awards.

"Wish I Was Here" LA Premiere Wish List

Monday at the theater at the Directors Guild of America in LA the stars of "Wish I Was Here" will take to the red carpet to premiere the film. Kate Hudson is among the cast I am EXTREMELY excited to see what she is going to wear. Kate has had a fantastic year thus far style wise and I am hoping that it is kept up come Monday night. This creamy pink and fuchsia Giambattista Valli Spring 2014 Couture mini dress is perfect for this red carpet appearance. This gown would show off Kate's stunning legs while being extremely sexy and sophisticated all at the same time. I would finish this look with a dyed to match fuchsia platform sandals and a gold minaudiere. Hair and makeup wise I would have Kate style her hair in an up-do with simple eye makeup and a light pink lip to ensure that she looks as sexy as ever.

"How To Train Your Dragon 2" London Premiere Wish List

America Ferrera has been consistently giving really pretty looks while on the road promoting her latest film "How To Train Your Dragon 2" and Sunday there will be a gala screening of the film in London. I would love to see America wear this black and nude bugle beaded striped Tadashi Shoji Resort 2015 boat neck gown for this premiere. Its elegant and perfect for a gala premiere. A black and gold sparkling clutch and a pair of black satin peep toe pumps would finish this look perfectly for this big premiere for America in London.
I don't know if it's because its an animated film or what but I have not been getting that all hail the queen when it comes to the looks that Cate Blanchett has been donning while promoting "How To Train Your Dragon 2." I am hoping that at the London screening Sunday night that we see Cate bring the wow. This cream Altuzarra Resort 2014 high neck gown with fringe details and cap sleeves would put her back on top, even though she did not falter to far from the top even her disappointing looks were best dressed worthy. I think that this is a fashion meets classic meets sailor look that only someone like Queen Cate Blanchett could pull off. A gold Edie Parker confetti clutch, a pair of gold sandals, and a red lip would finish this look off in a perfect way for this premiere.

2014 Critics Choice Television Awards Wish List Part 3

Angie Harmon from the TNT drama "Rizzoli & Isles" will be on hand tomorrow night at the Critics Choice Television Awards held at the Beverly Hilton as a presenter. I either love or hate Angie on the red carpet and I am hoping that it will be the former when it comes to tomorrow night. I think that this sleek silk jersey Ralph Lauren Pre-Fall 2014 long sleeved gown with a plunging neckline in wheat is the perfect balance between sporty and glamour which is exactly what Angie needs on the red carpet. I would style her hair in a sleek up do with a fresh face of makeup, like they did on the runway. A small sliver leather minaudiere, a pair of silver simple sandals, and a pair of diamond cluster earrings would put the perfect finishing touches on this presenter perfect look.
Christina Applegate is another presenter scheduled to take to the stage tomorrow night at the 2014 Critics Choice Awards. I don't really know what to expect when it comes to Christina. I used to be blown away by her in the likes of Elie Saab and Roberto Cavalli Couture, but I don't think that is what is going to make an appearance on Christina tomorrow night. I think that this black Sally LaPointe Fall 2014 RTW black silk wool degrade gown with hand beaded appliques would be an amazing option. I saw this gown walk the runway back in February at New York Fashion Week and I am praying that it will get a major red carpet moment. Sally has had a major year red carpet wise dressing lots of stars for their big appearances. Finish this look with a black Edie Parker clutch, a pair of simple Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals in black, a diamond bracelet, and a pair of simple diamond cluster earrings to ensure that Christina stands out in her black gown.
When I read that Diane Kruger is going to be a presenter at the Critics Choice Awards tomorrow night I will admit I let out a bit of a squeal. I love seeing Diane take to the red carpet and I know she will bring the high fashion factor to a red carpet that is usually dominated by stereotypically "pretty" gowns. We have not seen Diane wear a look from Christian Dior since it has been helmed by Raf Simons and I think that it is finally time that we do. This black silk chiffon overlay gown that covers a knee length cocktail dress with a circle print that is completely made up of white sequins. This is a more sporty look that we are used to Diane rocking but I seriously believe that this would look stunning. At 5 foot 7 inches Diane is not the tallest woman but I think that she could rock this gown better than the six foot tall model. A white Edie Parker clutch, a pair of black Stuart Weitzman "Nudist" sandals, a sporty hairstyle, and a red lip would ensure that Diane rocks this look like only a true fashionista could.
Black....that is the red carpet usual for Elisabeth Moss. This fact makes me sad because when she first made it on the red carpet she would work gowns in a bevy of colors. I am hoping that when she takes to the stage as a presenter tomorrow at the Critics Choice Television Awards tomorrow that she brings a bold colorful look. This magenta Monique Lhuillier Resort 2015 one shoulder gown with a side cutout and pleated skirt is a perfect look for Elisabeth. I think that the sporty nature of this gown is perfect for the Critics Choice Awards. Elisabeth is not nominated or on the fashion queen level of Diane Kruger so a "pretty" gown is called for. I would just pair this look with gold pumps and a bold lip color to make sure that Elisabeth makes the best dressed list and not the worst dressed list she has been frequenting.

2014 Critics Choice Television Awards Wish List Part 2

Amy Poehler is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy Series at the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards come Thursday evening. I am hoping to see Amy keep up her awesome run from the 2014 Golden Globe Awards, even if it was in all black. I am picking yet another black gown for Amy to wear Thursday night but I believe that she is taking small steps to looking even more amazing than she used to. This body hugging Kaufmanfranco Fall 2014 RTW black sheath gown with a sweeping train and under bust cutout is perfect for Amy to wear. I do believe that this gown has cutouts on the hips as well but I would have this look modified to remove those. A black sparkling clutch, a pair of simple Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals in black, and a pair of pretty and simple diamond earrings would ensure that Amy looks absolutely fantastic on the Critics Choice red carpet.
The HBO film "The Normal Heart" has garnered Julia Roberts a nomination for Best Supporting Actress in a Movie or Mini-Series at the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards. After giving me disappointing look after disappointing look during awards season I do not have high hopes if she even attends Thursday's red carpet. I figure that Julia will turn back to one of her favored brands Valentino, Givenchy, or Dolce & Gabbana. I am picking this black Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2014 RTW lace long sleeve gown for Julia. Nothing inspiring but typical Julia.
Minnie Driver has given some awesome red carpet looks in the past as a supporting actress at movie premieres and I am hoping that she kills it Thursday night at the Critics Choice Television Awards where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Movie or Mini-Series for her Lifetime film "Return to Zero." This navy Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Resort 2015 gown is typical of the Westwood legacy but I think that Minnie would look absolutely stunning wearing this amazing creation. A sparking navy Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver sandals, and some stunning diamond and sapphire earrings would make this look stand out even with its classic silhouette and muted colors.
Robin Wright usually sticks to covered up black ensembles when she takes to the red carpet. In the past two years she has made 8 red carpet appearances in black, black and white, nude, and navy so dark it might as well have been black and all very basic designs at that. I am hoping to see Robin revert back to the stunning red carpet dresser that she used to be prior to her divorce from Sean Penn. I have picked this Prabal Gurung Resort 2015 lace sequin embroidered lace cap sleeve top gown with a black and ink blue chiffon skirt for Robin to wear on the red carpet Thursday night where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for the Netflix original series "House of Cards." It is not way to far out of her usual comfort zone but it is all at the same time. A pair of simple Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals in black, an ink blue Edie Parker clutch, and a pair of simple diamond cluster earrings would help waltz Robin right back onto the worlds Best Dressed lists.

2014 Critics Choice Televison Awards Wish List Part 1

The First Lady of "Scandal" Bellamy Young is nominated at the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series for her work on the hit political drama. She has come a long way from her start slowly growing better red carpet options. Last week at the closing ceremony of the Monte-Carlo Television Festival, Bellamy rocked a sexy Naeem Khan gown and I am hoping that her stellar run will continue at the Critics Choice Awards. This ivory Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 RTW strapless tiered column gown would be a regal elegant choice for Bellamy to make for the awards show. A pair of gold drop earrings, a gold Edie Parker clutch, and a pair of gold strappy sandals would give this the perfect finishing touches for the red carpet on Thursday.
Emmy Rossum will be playing double duty come the 2014 Critics Choice Television Awards on Thursday night. Emmy is not only nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy for "Shameless" but is also going to be a presenter for the awards show. Emmy rocks all of the best American designers and is one of my absolute favorite stars to see take to the red carpet. For her big night I would love to see Emmy wear this amazing ice blue Jason Wu Resort 2015 minimalist a-line ball gown. While she might have to fight Diane Kruger for this gown, as Diane is also a presenter (my wish for her to come on Wednesday), I would love to see Emmy rock this gown as I know she would do so with great aplomb. A pink lip, a silver Edie Parker clutch, a pair of silver Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals, as well as some simple Harry Winston earrings would make this look perfect for the Critics Choice Television Awards on Thursday night.
When it comes to the red carpet Julia Louis-Dreyfus is either a big hit or a huge miss to me. She had hits at the Golden Globes and SAG Awards earlier this year in Narciso Rodriguez and Monique Lhuillier respectively. I am hoping that Julia is able to keep up her big run when it comes to Thursday night's Critics Choice Television Awards where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Comedy. I think that this red Notte by Marchesa Fall 2014 RTW halter lace gown would look stunning on Julia. I think that this neckline is one that always works for her and I don't think I could tire of seeing her wearing. A pair of satin peep toe pumps dyed to match the color of the gown, a pair of gold drop diamond earrings, and a gold and diamond bracelet would make this gown shine for Julia's big night.
  Julianna Margulies is one of the few stars who could snag a couture gown for the red carpet and I am really hoping that she does. After sticking to her signature color, black, for the Golden Globes and White House Correspondents Dinner, I am hoping that Julianna will bring some color to the red carpet come Thursday night where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Drama Series for "The Good Wife." I think that this blue Armani Prive Spring 2014 Couture strapless gown with all its hand embroidery and embellishments is a stunning choice that Julianna should make for the Critics Choice Television Awards. Julianna has worn a few Armani Prive gowns before and I have never been a fan but I believe that this would be the perfect pairing. A small silver clutch, a pair of silver sandals, and simple but jaw dropping diamonds (in her ears and on her wrist) would send this look over the edge and make international best dressed looks.

2014 LA Film Festival: "The Two Faces of January" Gala Premiere Wish List

Kirsten Dunst worked a Vivienne Westwood black cocktail dress for the "Two Faces of January" London premiere last month. On Tuesday Kirsten will present the film at the LA Film Festival and I am hoping for another amazing red carpet appearance from Kirsten. For the 2014 Met Ball Kirsten worked a "Star Wars" themed gown from her favorite designers Rodarte and I am hoping that she will pull another look from this collection for this premiere. This one shouldered black Rodarte Fall 2014 RTW cocktail dress is a perfect option for Kirsten to wear for this Gala premiere. I would finish the look with a bold red lip and a pair of black Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals to give this a perfect old Hollywood twist on this modern edgy dress.

2014 LA Film Festival: "Comet" Premeire Wish List

Emmy Rossum will be premiering her newest film "Comet" tonight at the LA Film Festival and I could not be more excited. Emmy knows how to work a red carpet no matter where it lies on the casual to formal spectrum. This fact makes her one of my favorite ladies to see take to the red carpet. For her premiere tonight I would pick this gold floral embroidered Oscar de la Renta Resort 2015 silk tulle cocktail dress. This is a classic look for the actress who can work every kinda look in the spectrum. A gold Edie Parker clutch and a pair of nude Stuart Weitzman 'Nudist' sandals paired with a pink lip would ensure that Emmy keeps on keeping on with her amazing red carpet run.

2014 LA Film Festival: "Love is Strange" Gala Premeire Wish List

Tonight during the LA Film Festival Marisa Tomei will take to the red carpet for a gala premiere of her film "Love is Strange." I am excited to see what Marisa will bring to the red carpet tonight since it is the first real big red carpet that she will be working with Ilaria Urbinati on her wardrobe with. Ilaria knows how to turn so-so red carpet styles into wow moments. I would pick this strapless Zac Posen Fall 2014 RTW sculpted cocktail dress for Marisa to wear for this premiere. While I love the dress but I would pick a deep shade of blue, red, or purple to have the dress recreated in for the occasion. Finish the look with a pair of gold sandals, a chic hairstyle, and a pair of dazzling earrings to ensure that Maris kills it on the red carpet tonight at her premiere.

2014 LA Film Festival: 'Snowpiercer' Gala Premiere Wish List

Tonight at the Regal Cinemas at L.A. Live the LA Film Festival will kick off with a gala premiere of 'Snowpiercer.' The promo tour for this film kick started almost a year ago with a premiere in its home country of South Korea. Since then the cast has been doing the song and dance across Europe presenting the film at the Deauville American Film Festival and the Berlin International Film Festival. I have seen this film and I must say that it is an interesting satirical take on society. To premiere this film tonight I would love to see Tilda Swinton wear this brown Valentino Spring 2014 Couture billowing cape gown. There are not many stars that I would recommend wearing such a shapeless dress but I think that Tilda is one of the few who could rock this ensemble off the runway. A pair of gold cluster earrings and the runway's pointed toe pumps are all that I would add to complete this look perfectly for a Film Festival opening.
Octavia Spencer is also in this film and I am hoping that she will make it to the premiere as she hasn't been on the promo trail thus far. Octavia has been very loyal to the man who made her a red carpet star, Tadashi Shoji. There have been very few occasions where Octavia has not worn one of Tadashi's designs. I would love to see Octavia wear this pool blue Tadashi Shoji Fall 2014 RTW lace sleeveless cocktail dress for the 'Snowpiercer' premiere tonight. I think that this would be an elegant and fun look that would go up in total contrast to whatever Tilda will wear, as I am sure she will be in full high fashion glory. A pair of royal blue pumps and a pair of diamond cluster earrings would put the right finishing touches to the is perfect look for Octavia.
