2016 Berlin International Film Festival: Opening Ceremony & "Hail, Caesar!" Premiere Wish List

The Berlin International Film Festival will kick off on February 11, 2016 with a grand gala premiere of the latest Cohen Brothers film "Hail, Caesar!" Sure to be in attendance is the president of this years International Jury, Meryl Streep. A year ago I would have scoffed at Meryl being on a film festival jury as the fashion was bound to be bland and blah but towards the end of last year (and the emergence of a new stylist) Meryl started making more of an impact on the red carpet, so now I am intrigued to see what she is going to wear for the red carpets during the festival. I picked this navy blue Alexis Mabille Fall 2015 Couture long sleeve embroidered shirt dress ballgown for Meryl to wear for the Opening Ceremony and "Hail, Caesar!" premiere. I believe that this gown embodies Meryl's relaxed classic look but does so in a grand way. We did not get to see any of this collection on the red carpet during festival season in the Fall so I am hoping that Meryl gets her hands on it for Berlin. Finish the look off with simple styling including a pair of navy satin pumps, a chic updo, and a pair of diamond cluster earrings and Meryl will kick of the festival in style.
With such an all-star cast it is hard to know exactly who will be showing up for the "Hail, Caesar!" premiere but there are two female stars that I have high hopes for showing up looking glamorous. Scarlett Johansson steps out ever so infrequently for red carpets so I am really hoping that for this premiere that she brings her signature sex appeal to the red carpet. The last time we actually saw ScarJo on the red carpet was almost a year ago at the Academy Awards. I would die if Scarlett got her hands on this blue and black embroidered Atelier Versace Spring 2016 Couture strapless mermaid gown for this red carpet. This gown would bring sexy glamour to the red carpet, something that Scarlett is quite known for. I think that silhouette would hug her curves and the train would just add dramatic impact. Finish the look with a pair of black sandals, an edgy glam updo, red lip, and a pair of diamond drop earrings and this would be a look to remember for Scarlett on the Berlin red carpet.
The other star of the film that I am uber hopeful will show up is the stunning Tilda Swinton. Tilda is always one that I enjoy seeing on the red carpet as she has quite the unpredictable style. She could go high glamour or menswear inspired or something modern and edgy. I decided to go with a modern edgy glam look with this white Christian Dior Spring 2016 Couture asymmetrical scoop neck bell shaped gown. When I watched this runway show Tilda was the first woman that came to my mind when this gown took to the runway. I believe that it embodies a lot of what Tilda likes to bring to the red carpet: glamour, modernity, and edge. With such a sleek silhouette it really could be brought down by the wrong styling so I would keep it simple with a pair of metallic silver pumps, edgy pouf, diamond cluster earrings, and a pink lip. All this together would give Tilda a red carpet look that would rival some of her greats red carpet hits.
