2017 Museum of Modern Art Film Gala Red Carpet Wish List

Every year the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in NYC honor some of the visionaries of the film industry. In previous years they have honored the likes of Tom Hanks, Cate Blanchett, Alfonso Cuarón, Tilda Swinton, Quentin Tarantino, Pedro Almodóvar, Kathryn Bigelow, Tim Burton, and Baz Luhrmann. The Museum of Modern Art’s 2017 Film Benefit, presented by Chanel, will honor Academy Award–winning actress Julianne Moore on November 13. With the star power that both Chanel and MOMA can get to walk the red carpet with the cast of lovely ladies Julianne has stared alongside during her career could bring one of the most glamorous red carpets in a while. Obviously I am going to kick this set of wishes off with the gorgeous Julianne Moore. She has long been one of my favorite stars to see on the red carpet and I am sure that she will not disappoint me when she steps onto this red carpet on November 12. I went searching in all of the recent, and archive, Chanel collections to pick the perfect look for Julianne to wear and when I saw this very ladylike navy blue Chanel Fall 2017 Couture tea length gown which features a full skirt, beaded embellishments, a v-neckline, and cold shoulder details I knew that we I had found the perfect look for Julianne to rock on the MOMA Film Benefit red carpet. I think that a sleek updo, a red lip, kohl rimmed eyes, a pair of blue Gianvito Rossi ‘Portofino’ floral print sandals, and dazzling diamond and Burmese sapphire Chopard earrings all would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Julianne. So the rest of my wishes for this red carpet are purely speculative. I went through some of the stars who Julianne has worked with that I love seeing on the red carpet and picked looks for them to wear for the benefit to help celebrate their colleague and friend. Emma Stone starred alongside Julianne in the 2011 film Crazy, Stupid, Love. Most stars who walk the MOMA Film Benefit red carpet wear Chanel since they are sponsors of the event. I wonder if Emma will do that if she does step out to help celebrate Julianne since she is a newly named face of Louis Vuitton. I have long said that the grip that LV has on its spokemodels is too tight. I love when brand ambassadors get a little room to show how they incorporate the brand that they represent into their already stellar wardrobes, and usually that is not the case with LV models. They wear the brand head to toe for almost every single red carpet. I opted to put Emma in this gorgeous silver and white Chanel Spring 2017 Couture column gown which features a plunging neckline, belted waist, feathered pouf, sheer hem, and sequin embellishments over an LV look because while the LV Spring 2018 collection is less than a month old I am already fatigued with it. I think that Emma would look so incredibly chic wearing this gown on the red carpet and I wouldn’t completely shun her contractual obligations adding a silver Louis Vuitton ‘Petite Malle’ lezard clutch and a statement diamond and emerald Louis Vuitton High Jewellery necklace to a sleek updo, red lip, and a pair of silver Aquazzura ‘Purist’ metallic leather sandals to make this a perfect red carpet moment. Kate Bosworth starred alongside Julianne in Still Alice, which ended up winning Julianne an Oscar, and with her history of supporting museum benefits I think that we just may see Kate on the red carpet. It’s been a while since we have seen Kate wearing Chanel on a red carpet, but I am sure that if she steps onto this red carpet that she will wear Chanel. I have wanted to see this pink and silver Chanel Spring 2017Couture structured gown on a red carpet, but because of its shape I knew that the chances were slim. Unlike the dress I picked for Emma, I am not surprised this dress hasn’t been worn yet because it really needs the perfect formula of the perfect person and the right event to really work. I think that Kate with her classic elegance and the MOMA gala being a more artsy red carpet is the perfect formula to make this a magical moment on the red carpet. I want to see Kate wear this dress with a gorgeous sculpted updo, simple lined eyes, a light pink lip, a silver Judith Leiber Couture ‘Reflection’ coffered box clutch, silver Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ crystal heel sandals, and a pair of vintage Van Cleef & Arpels diamond and pearl encrusted earrings to ensure that she has an absolutely major red carpet moment. Kristen Stewart and Julianne Moore have known each other for years having attended many Chanel events together. Kristen also starred in Still Alice alongside Julianne Moore and Kate Bosworth so I think that this could be a perfect opportunity for them to be able to get their film family back together. There are definitely options from the recent runways that Kristen could, and most likely would, wear for this red carpet, but I decided I want to go for something a little different. Kristen has never had a really good vintage moment before and I when I saw this red Chanel strapless gown from the 80’s which features a button fastened back, column silhouette, pleated front pockets, layered detailing on bust, and gold button details on the vintage retailer Decades Inc. website I thought that this would be a really coll moment for Kristen to wear on the red carpet. Kristen is all about the edgy approach to glamour and I think that this gown embodies that idea perfectly. With a punky spiked hairstyle. kohl rimmed eyes, nude lips, and a pair of gold Versace chain detail sandals Kristen would just ooze bad ass glamour.Blake Lively and Julianne Moore are both spokesmodels for L’Oreal Paris and kill the red carpet at Cannes every year often with their days overlapping at the beginning of festival. They also played small roles in the 2009 film The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. I would love to think that since Blake is such a friend of Chanel that I am praying that she will be on the red carpet at the MOMA Film Benefit honoring Julianne Moore, to celebrate her glamorous colleague. I think that Blake would definitely ooze glamour on the MOMA red carpet wearing this black Chanel Fall 2017 Couture midi gown which features a pearl halter that continues down into dramatic tassels. I think that if Blake paired this look with a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigallie Follies Crow’ patent leather fringed pumps, old Hollywood waves, a winged eyeliner, red lip, and jewels from her go to brand Lorraine Schwartz with a pair of diamond and onyx drop earrings and statement cuff would really just ensure that this look is glamour personified.
