We are just getting started with all of my wishes for the 2017 London Film Festival. Over the next couple of days I will be posting my wishes for two or three films that are galas or special screenings at this years London Film Festival. Today I have two films and three stars to wish for. Each of these ladies had been off the radar for a while and this year they have all made strides this year. Annette Bening usually keeps a pretty low profile on the red carpet but this year she has walked the carpets at the Golden Globe Awards, Venice Film Festival, and Toronto Film Festival. While Annette isn’t usually one to wear something bold or statement making she is always incredibly chic. I would love to see Annette attend the London Film Festival gala premiere of Film Stars Don’t Die In Liverpool wearing this very chic black Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 RTW suit which is made up of a jacket which features a collarless neck, mirrored buttons, and multi-slited hem and a pair of woven pleated pants. I think that this look just screams classic elegance and I think that speaks to Annette’s sense of style perfectly. A chic curly hairstyle, red lip, and a pair of black Schutz ‘Ionara’ pumps would add the perfect chic touches to this ensemble. Redoubtable first screened at the Cannes Film Festival back in May and the cast will be back on the red carpet at the ‘create’ strand gala at the London Film Festival. Since this film is screening at the festival as one of the creative themed gala’s I feel like the red carpet might be a little more casual than I have made my wishes for. I really want to see Berenice Bejo to continue her run of wearing Elie Saab that she started during the Deauville American Film Festival. Elie was the brand that dressed Berenice for most of the major red carpets, including the Oscars, the year she made her big debut in The Artist. I could totally see Berenice making this ivory chiffon Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture simple gown which features beautiful beaded halter neckline and a metallic belted waist. This gown is classic elegance defined and I know that Berenice will make it the moment that it truly deserves to be. With a gold Elie Saab ‘Stars’ clutch, romantic updo, diamond cluster earrings, smokey eye, glossy nude lip, and a pair of nude Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ sandals Berenice will have that red carpet moment that I know that this could be.Stacy Martin stars alongside Berenice in Redoubtable and has joined her at all of the films premieres. I am really excited to see what she will wear on the red carpet at the 2017 London Film Festival. Almost always Stacy is seen wearing Prada or Miu Miu on the red carpet, but I decided to switch things up a little bit for this premiere. I think that this black Armani Prive Fall 2017 Couture tiered, sequined cocktail dress screams Stacy’s style and I think that it would be a nice change of pace from the constant Prada and Miu Miu dresses that she normally. With loose waves, diamond drop earrings, a black Prada snakeskin clutch, and a pair of light blue Miu Miu crystal-embellished sandals Stacy will ensure it still represents her favorite brands while pushing her limits.
The 2017 London Film Festival opens October 4, 2017 and runs through October 15, 2017.
