We are now over halfway through my wishes for the 2017 London Film Festival and I am really excited to see what all of the stars will bring this year. I am really hoping that all of the big stars that have films screening at this years festival will make the jaunt to London to help promote their films at the festival. Today’s wishes features two women who I am always in awe of when it comes to the red carpet and one that I am ready to see return to her prime. I always love seeing Julianne Moore on the red carpet and I am excited that her latest film Wonderstruck is screening at this year London Film Festival. We have seen Julianne step out to promote this film already at the Cannes Film Festival and a screening at the New York Film Festival is upcoming. I decided to go for a more formal look than Julianne has worn while promoting this film. She wore a Chanel Couture cocktail look for the Cannes premiere, but I went for bold color with this electric yellow and purple Carolina Herrera Spring 2018 RTW matchstick embroidered gown rendered in silk and features a crew-neck, long sleeves, and a pleated hem. I had this look originally on my wish list for Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, but I totally think that Julianne would deliver it in such a chic and modern way. Sleek hair styled the same way it was styled for the runway, a smokey eye, a dark pink lip, bright gold Gucci ‘Allie’ knotted strappy sandals, and a pair of statement Chopard earrings that features white and yellow diamonds and emeralds would really make this look pop even more than it already does. Michelle Williams stars alongside Julianne in Wonderstruck and I am really hoping for a revival of her style. I say this all the time. She is stuck in the clenched fists of Louis Vuitton and it is really making me just want to fall asleep every time she steps out. Sometimes I just find LV over designed and ugly on the red carpet, but on Michelle a lot of the time I find Michelle’s looks just snooze worthy. So for this red carpet I decided to ditch LV and make a wish for something that I can fall in love with. I would die if Michelle stepped onto the red carpet at her gala premiere during the London Film Festival wearing this white lace Calvin Klein Spring 2018 RTW sleeveless shift dress which features a PVC overlay printed with Andy Warhol scenes and a blue sash tied through a grommet. I would love to see it as presented on the runway, but I honestly think that Michelle would remove PVC overlay and make it a little more simple and commercial. I think that even without the PVC that this would still be a really beautiful moment for Michelle. I wouldn’t completely shun LV for Michelle adding a black and white printed Petite Malle clutch, simple black ‘Rendez Vous’ pumps, and dainty ‘Dentelle de Diamants’ drop earrings to ensure she still has the brand represented. Finishing with a sleek hairstyle, lined eyes, and a red lip would really make this look beautiful for Michelle.The Killing of a Sacred Deer like Wonderstruck also screened at the Cannes Film Festival back in May and Nicole Kidman gave one of her best red carpet moments ever in custom Calvin Klein. The film is slated to premiere at the 2017 London Film Festival and I am really hoping that hot off her Emmy win (from both her red carpet look and her Big Little Lies performance) that Nicole will continue her amazing fashion run. I think that this gunmetal Atelier Versace Fall 2017 Couture sleeveless crystal embroidered chainmail cocktail dress would really hit a darker more structured note on the red carpet. I think that this look is more medieval couture than we are used to seeing Nicole wearing lately. She has worn a lot of really dainty, very feminine looks on the red carpet and I really want to see this slightly harder and more structured side of Nicole. I think that with a pair of matchy antracite Aquazzura ‘Monaco’ beaded sandals, sleek hair pinned behind the ears, kohl rimmed eyes, nude glossy lips, and a pair of vintage diamond and sapphire Fred Leighton earrings that Nicole would shut the red carpet down.
The 2017 London Film Festival opens October 4, 2017 and runs through October 15, 2017.
