2016 London Film Festival: “The Birth of a Nation” Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

aja-naomi-king-2016-london-film-fest-the-birth-of-a-nation-premiere-wish-list-1The cast of The Birth of a Nation has been up and down with their red carpet looks over the course of the promo tour so far and I am praying that they start to hit a stride. The next stop on the promotional road is the London Film Festival where the film will have a gala premiere. I am hoping that we finally get that real big moment from Aja Naomi King, which I have been eagerly awaiting. Aja shares a stylist with Kirsten Stewart so I was looking at some of the brands that Tara Sweenen, their stylist, has worked with and I decided that Aja needs a major Elie Saab moment. I think that the London Film Festival premiere of The Birth of a Nation would be the perfect place for Aja to rock this absolutely major Elie Saab Fall 2016 Couture gown which features a plunging neckline, black and white printed wrap style ball skirt, and gorgeous oversized floral embellishments. This is a very dramatic take on a princess moment and I think that Aja would hit the red carpet with great aplomb. I would love to see Aja go for a chic updo with a red lip, dainty diamond drop earrings, and a pair of simple black strappy platform sandals to really send this look into major moment territory. gabrielle-union-2016-london-film-fest-the-birth-of-a-nation-premiere-wish-list-1Gabrielle Union can be either hit or miss with her red carpet looks and it has been a while since I have really loved one of her looks. I am hoping that if she makes the jaunt to London to premiere The Birth of the Nation at the London Film Festival that Gabrielle really showcases a gorgeous moment. I went with something a little more modern than she has worn recently with this liquid black sequined Kaufmanfranco Fall 2016 RTW off the shoulder column gown which features a stomach slash and a cut out back. This is modern glamour at it’s best and I think that Gabrielle could make it a really major moment. Where she could make the look go wrong is in the styling. I would add sexy Veronica Lake waves, a bright red lip, diamond drop earrings, a statement cocktail ring, and a pair of strappy back Christian Louboutin sandals to really make this a perfect look for Gabrielle.
