Now that we have past my wishes for the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival are over it is time to move on to the next major festival, the 2016 New York Film Festival. As film fests go NYFF is usually more of a cocktail style event than big couture gowns. This years edition kicks off in one month on September 30, just after New York Fashion Week. I figure that a lot of my wishes between now and the end of NYFW that a lot of my wishes for the Fall 2016 RTW collections will go to the wayside. On October 8, we will see the stars of 20th Century Women hit the red carpet to premire the film. It has been a real hot minute since we have last seen Annette Bening really grace a major red carpet so I don’t know what she will bring to the red carpet, or if she will even step out. If she does I think that this white Escasda Fall 2016 RTW suit which features a scarf like neckline could be a really great look for Annette. I would add a chic matching white shell top because I don’t think that Annette would go topless under the suit like the runway. Finishing with a pair of chic white pumps, red lip, and classic bob and Annette will be poised for a great red carpet return. Elle Fanning is the member of the cast of 20th Century Women that I am most excited to see on the red carpet. This year Elle has gone from one of my least favorites to see on the red carpet and I am only more excited to continue to watch her grow. Elle and Chanel have always worked very well with each other and I think that for this premiere that this white Chanel Fall 2016 Couture halter dress which features sea foam tweed embellishments is perfect for this premiere. While some may think that this type of couture is too much for NYFF I think that Elle has the grace and glamour to really make it work. A chic low bun, a soft pink lip, and a pair of simple gold sandals are all that are needed to finish this look perfectly for Elle. Greta Gerwig falters back and forth with me with whether or not I like her red carpet style. I still remember the first time I saw Greta on a red carpet. She was wearing a gorgeous emerald green Prabal Gurung gown at the 2012 Met Gala. Since then Greta has gone back and forth with her red carpet styles, usually not being favorable in my opinion. Hoping for some red carpet magic I decided to go for this indigo blue Carolina Herrera Resort 2017 dress rendered in silk and features a strapless neckline with a deep v front and a low cut back, floral embroidery, and a full midi skirt. I think that this dress would be absolute magic on the back of Greta really giving her a look that will make me take notice, and in a really positive manner. A pair of silver sandals, a chic bob, matching indigo clutch, and a red lip would really make this a major moment for Greta. A modern Audrey Hepburn moment.
The 2016 New York Film Festival opens September 30, 2016 and runs through October 16, 2016.
