2017 Berlin International Film Festival: Jury Member Maggie Gyllenhaal Red Carpet Wish List

maggie-gyllenhaal-2017-berlin-film-festival-jury-wish-list-1Today I am bringing my 2017 Berlin International Film Festival red carpet wishes full circle by closing with a flurry of wishes for Maggie Gyllenhaal who has been selected for jury duty. Most people dread getting the notice to show up for jury duty, but I think that Maggie isn’t having those same feelings. Over the course of the Berlin Film Festival I am hoping we see Maggie on the red carpet a few times. Since the only time that we are actually expected to see the Jury on the red carpet is at the Opening and Closing Ceremonies, I have made a few extra looks for Maggie to wear to some of the other films screenings. The first look I picked for Maggie is this gorgeous gold and light blue Elie Saab Spring 20117 Couture cap sleeve ball gown which features gorgeous beaded embroidery. This is definitely more of a light, princess style dress than we are used to seeing on Maggie, but I do think that for either the Opening or Closing Ceremony that this would be that glamorous statement that I am hoping to see from Maggie. maggie-gyllenhaal-2017-berlin-film-festival-jury-wish-list-2For one of the non big ‘gala’ premieres I would love to see Maggie really showcase a bold side of her style. This Gucci Pre-Fall 2017 gown which features a 3/4 length sleeve bodice, while a-line skirt, UFO beaded applique on the waist, and patterned beaded cuffs is definitely a bit out there, but I think that Maggie would look so elegant in it. The gown has a very 60’s Jackie Kennedy shape and is only made ‘strange’ by the addition of the beaded details, but I think that’s what makes this gown such a statement. A chic bob, bold lashes, and a pair of black sandals would really turn this into a showstopping moment for Maggie. maggie-gyllenhaal-2017-berlin-film-festival-jury-wish-list-3I still can’t believe that I am still waiting for one of the gowns from Olivier Theyskens debut Spring 2017 RTW collection to be worn on the red carpet. I think that Maggie would look very chic wearing this textured black strapless a-line gown which features a belted waist and a dramatic train. The gown would be one of those moments where a black gown really sings on the red carpet. Of course to elevate this gown the styling is key. I would pair this gown with a statement diamond and emerald necklace, red lip, and romantic bob to really make this gown a major moment on the Berlinale red carpet. maggie-gyllenhaal-2017-berlin-film-festival-jury-wish-list-4Prabal Gurung is probably the biggest stretch as we usually don’t see his designs on the red carpets of European film festival red carpets. I personally think that this rose pink Prabal Gurung Spring 2017 RTW bare back gown which features a column styled silhouette and an exaggerated fan sleeve with a pleated cuff has the drama to really hold it’s own against the couture gowns which are film festival standard. This gown is really a bold choice no matter what red carpet it would be worn on but I think that Maggie’s relaxed air would make this turn into a major moment. I think that someone with either and regal air or a relaxed air are the only’ ones who would be able to make this gown work. Since there is so much fabric involved with this dress the styling has to kept very simple. A vintage inspired finger wave style and gold peep toe pumps would really make this a beautiful moment for Maggie. maggie-gyllenhaal-2017-berlin-film-festival-jury-wish-list-5And last but not least I have this gorgeous Valentino Fall 2016 Couture brocade ballgown, which would totally evoke this Renaissance queen vibe for the Berlin Film Festival closing ceremony. I would have Maggie wear just the gown without the tulle top that is worn under the gown, as I know that would be too much for her and she would become lost in the gown. This gown is regal and totally worthy of a film festival red carpet and I really do think that despite it being a ballgown that Maggie would really look extra glamorous in this style.
