2016 White House Correspondents Dinner Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

gugu-mbatha-raw-2016-white-house-correspondents-dinner-wish-list (1)With the 2016 White House Correspondents Dinner just over 24 hours away I’m bringing you my last ditch wish list. With so many big events coming up I have been a little burnt out and needed a few days to reasses everything and prep for covering the Met Gala red carpet, Cannes Film Festival wishes, and covering the Cannes Film Festival red carpets. I will be tweeting the red carpet for the WHCD tomorrow night. One of the stars I am very excited to see tomorrow is the gorgeous Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Gugu will be attending the WHCD as a guest of Bloomberg and I have read is incredibly excited. For the carpet I would love to see Gugu take to the carpet in this white Brandon Maxwell Fall 2016 RTW crepe silk, v-neck column gown which features sculptural detailing on the waist. This gown is classic and modern at the same time, with a shilouette perfect for the WHCD red carpet. A chic curly afro, bold red lip, white Edie Parker ‘Jean’ cluster stars acrylic clutch, a pair of Jimmy Choo ‘Fancie’ silver glitter fabric and mirror leather platform sandals, and a pair of statement Cartier emerald and diamond swirl cluster earrings will finish this look perfectly, ensuring that Gugu is one of the best of the night at the WHCD.jaimie-alexander-2016-white-house-correspondents-dinner-wish-list (1)Jaimie Alexander was a breakout star last year when she showed up on the Emmy Awards red carpet in a stunning custom Armani Prive gown in the lead up to the premiere of her hit NBC show Blindspot. This year I have been less than impressed with what she has offered. I am hoping that as a guest of NBC tomorrow night that Jaimie will deliver something full glamour again. I think that this yellow Vionnet Fall 2016 RTW draped gown which features a black asymmetrical waist would put Jaimie back on my radar. With some real unknowns under hear belt I think that going to Vionnet is a great choice to get the fashion community interested in her style again. I would add a sleek pulled back look for her hair, lined eye, nude lip, a pair of black sandals, and a black, white, and gold striped Valentino enamel clutch to ensure that this is a take notice look for Jaimie. kerry-washington-2016-white-house-correspondents-dinner-wish-list (1)Kerry Washington has become a bit of a White House Correspondents Dinner regular since she is the star of the hit political drama series Scandal, and another plus is she just stared in the HBO movie Confirmation (which also had political ties.) Kerry is always one that I get excited to see on the red carpet and tomorrow I would love to see Kerry show up on the WHCD red carpet wearing a modified version of this Jason Wu Fall 2016 RTW strapless wool dress which features feather embellishments. I would love to see this dress lengthened into a floor length gown and a beaded waistband added to have a gorgeous, and event appropriate gown for Kerry. A grey Jimmy Choo ‘Ruby’ lamΓ© glitter clutch, a pair of matching grey Jimmy Choo ‘Manda’ lamΓ© glitter pumps with a broach detail, red lip, chic old Hollywood waves, and a pair of diamond drop earrings would really show Kerry’s red carpet chops. michelle-dockery-2016-white-house-correspondents-dinner-wish-list (1)This might be the last White House Correspondents Dinner for former Downton Abby starlet Michelle Dockery. Over the last year we have seen Michelle opt out of attending a lot of events, which made me a little surprised that she was attending tomorrow nights WHCD. This icy blue Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2016 gown which features a column silhouette with a deep v-neckline, allover beaded embellishment, and illusion detailing would look so gorgeous on Michelle, giving her a gorgeous moment for her red carpet return. Rounding the look out with a blue crystal grid Elie Saab clutch, a pair of icy blue and gold Christian Louboutin ‘Slikova’ sandals, a light pink lip, and her signature sleek bob will really add the perfect finishing touches to this look. rosario-dawson-2016-white-house-correspondents-dinner-wish-list (1)Rounding out all my White House Correspondents Dinner red carpet wishes is Rosario Dawson. I decided to pick something basic, but incredibly gorgeous, for Rosario to wear on the WHCD red carpet. This strapless Prabal Gurung Fall 2016 RTW chiffon and sequin flowing gown would look gorgeous on Rosario, if she decides to take to the red carpet with full diva attitude. Where I think that this gown really comes alive when it is made into a statement. The styling would allow for that. Adding a black Kotur ‘Morley Crystals’ clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Senora’ peep toe strappy sandals, a statement diamond necklace, chic updo, and a red lip would really ensure that this is a gorgeous red carpet moment for Rosario.
