Now that we have the kick off of awards season behind us with the 2017 Hollywood Film Awards and the Academy Governors Awards we are picking up steam on the race to the 2018 Academy Awards. Over the next several weeks several before a break for the Christmas holidays we will see several of the smaller awards show red carpets take place and it just gets me more and more excited for awards season. The Gotham Independent Film Awards have pushed up their presentation of awards. Usually we see these awards handed out at the beginning of December, but we will see this years red carpet take place on Monday November 27, 2017. Allison Janney has already earned herself a Hollywood Film Award for her supporting role in I, Tonya and I think that despite the fact that she doesn’t have a nomination at the Gotham Independent Film Awards that she will be on the red carpet. Thanks to her boost from the Hollywood Film Awards win Allison is officially campaigning for that Best Supporting Actress Oscar and that usually means stepping out for awards shows where the film is nominated even if you aren’t there is no supporting actress category at the Gotham Awards, so it is not like Allison was snubbed for her performance. Since she isn’t nominated I wanted to pick a really chic moment, yet simple moment for Allison to wear on the red carpet at the Gotham Awards. This simple yet chic black Elizabeth Kennedy Spring 2018 RTW fitted cocktail dress which features pearl trim detail would be a perfect moment for Allison to bring to this red carpet. This dress modern and classic all at the same time and I think that would be the perfect kind of look for Allison to wear to keep up appearances. Running with the pearl detail I would add a black satin Roger Vivier ‘Jaipur’ pearly fringe minaudiere and a pair of black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistpearls’ sandals to old Hollywood waves, a simple lined eye, and red lips to make this look perfection.Carey Mulligan is part of the cast of Mudbound which will be honored with the Special Jury Award for Ensemble Performance at the 2017 Gotham Independent Film Awards. I have been loving everything Carey has worn on the red carpet this year and I have pretty decent expectations for what she will wear as awards season continues. For the Gotham red carpet I want to see Carey wearing this green and purple geometric floral print Zac Posen Spring 2018 RTW full skirted cocktail dress. This is a chic moment and I think that Carey could definitely make this dress a beautiful look on the red carpet. With a sleek updo, pink lip, a simple defined eye, and a pair of silver Gucci ‘Allie’ bow embellished metallic sandals this look would be the epitome of chic elegance on the red carpet. Margot Robbie is nominated for Best Actress for her role as Tonya Harding in I, Tonya and I am praying that we will finally see an awards season where Margot is nominated. The vibe at the Gotham Independent Film Awards is usually more of a relaxed, cocktail approach to glamour. The awards invite even specifies that the dress code for the event is “Festive evening attire. The event is not black tie.” So I went to great cocktail dresses for guests to wear on this red carpet. I think that Margot would definitely fit that bill wearing this yellow Jacquemus Spring 2018 RTW off-the-shoulder sheath dress which features a v-neckline and a midi length hem. Margot’s stylist Kate Young loves Jacquemus having put many of her clients in the brand and wearing the brand to the Met Gala herself, so I think that we will most likely see Margot wearing one of his designs over the course of awards season and I think that this platform would be the perfect red carpet to wear this rising star designer. Loose waves, a simplistic face of makeup, yellow Gianvito Rossi strappy sandals, and a pair of Bulgari diamond, emerald, sapphire, and citrine earrings all would all the perfect finishing touches to this look. For Margot. Finishing off today’s wishes for the Gotham Independent Film Awards is the gorgeous Nicole Kidman, who will be given one of this years Gotham Tribute awards. At the beginning of the year Nicole was honestly one who kept breaking my heart on red carpet after red carpet, but then she took the Cannes Film Festival by storm and there really hasn’t been a single look that she has worn this year that I haven’t liked or loved. I am really hoping that she will keep that up on this red carpet. I think that this ivory white and black tuxedo inspired dress which features an embroidered detail on the dresses asymmetrical hem is very much in Nicole’s wheelhouse and that is is a perfect moment for the Gotham Awards red carpet. This is a very classic look with a modern, fashionable twist that makes it anything but boring. I would further that glamour with sleek hair tucked behind the ears, a kohl rimmed eyes, a bold red lip, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Biblio’ leather cutout pumps, and simple diamond Fred Leighton earrings.
