This marks my final movie premiere wish list for 2017. Tomorrow I’ll start my Critics Choice Awards wishes and then stars my annual End of the Year Style Awards. I take my years very seriously when it comes to how I compile my Best Dressed of the Year list and every year I start my consideration for the next years list on December 1st. I do that so that I can post my annual best of the year list, but sadly I cannot wait until December 31st to do so because awards season always starts early. That means that the looks from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi promo tour will be my first considerations for next years awards. I am really excited to see what all of the stars will bring to the red carpet at the films gala premiere in London on Tuesday December 12, 2017. This cast has really great potential and I am really excited to see what they will bring.For Daisy Ridley I decided to go for her first major Atelier Versace moment. Daisy is definitely a rising red carpet powerhouse and I am really excited to see what she will bring to this tour. I feel like for many of my wishes for this tour I have gone very ‘alien chic’ for everyone but Daisy. I think that she will not buy into the kitsch of theme dressing instead opting for really great moments that stand strong all on their own. She should feel honored because I am trusting her with one of my favorite gowns from the latest couture collections. When I saw this black halter gown with gold beaded embroidery gown in the Atelier Versace Fall 2017 Couture lookbook I immediately fell in love. This is a really gorgeous moment and I have been very protective over who I have wished to wear it on a red carpet. Since this gown debuted, despite the fact that I really love it, I have only featured it in two wish lists. One for Emma Stone and one for Gal Gadot. I think that Daisy has the potential to keep up with those style stars and I do think that she would take this gown and really make it a great moment on the red carpet at this premiere. I think that with a loose romantic updo, kohl rimmed eyes, glossy light pink lips, a pair of black and gold Tom Ford metallic ankle tie sandals, and a pair of vintage Cartier gold and diamond teardrop earrings all would ensure that Daisy all makes a major moment for one of the most buzzed about promo tours of the year. While I have gone for great glamour for Daisy I have been doing the full ‘alien chic’ moment for Lupita Nyong’o to wear during this promo tour. I went based on the looks that Lupita wore on the red carpet at the last Star Wars tour that she had. She went to some really dramatic and edgy looks during that tour both fashion wise and beauty wise and I cannot wait to see what she will bring during this tour. For the London premiere I went for the simplest in style but maybe the most visually striking look that I could pull together for Lupita to wear during this tour. Lupita does color better than almost everyone. I have been waiting to see someone wearing this sleek one shoulder Armani Prive Spring 2017 Couture tangerine orange column gown since it came down the runway back in January and I think that if anyone could really sell this look to me that it would be Lupita. There is no need for intricate beading or long trains when the color of the gown is this bold. Most would take the gown and let it be all the statement that it is, but not me. Not for Lupita. Not for this premiere. I really went for it with the matching for the styling of this look adding a thick winged eye and bold orange lip, a pair of orange suede Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pointed toe pumps, and a statement padparadascha sapphire and diamond David Morris cocktail ring to really make this look even more visually striking than it already was coming down the runway.Gwendoline Christie is definitely one of the most improved stars this year. Had this red carpet taken place at the beginning of the year I might not have featured Gwendoline, but while she did the rounds promoting Top of the Lake: China Girl and Game of Thrones this year her style has really blossomed. I think that Gwendoline would continue that great streak wearing this cream pleated Gucci Spring 2018 RTW gown which features balloon sleeves, beaded cuffs, a mock neck, and dazzling beaded embroidery on the shoulders. This gown is definitely something that I think that only a few could really pull off and I think that the 6’3″ tall actress would definitely not let the gown overwhelm her. With a chic curly bob, smokey eye, a light pink lip, and a pair of silver Alexandre Birman knotted metallic sandals this look would be perfection.Laura Dern has had a really great year and ahead of an awards season where she is a favorite to take home several awards I am expecting Laura to really deliver some really great looks. She was the epitome of modern glam wearing a tea length feathered Proenza Schouler gown at the Emmy Awards earlier this year and I decided to go back to the brand for her to wear on the red carpet at the London premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I think that Laura would exude that same modern glamour wearing another look from the Proenza Schouler Spring 2018 RTW collection. I think that this black Irish lace embroidered ensemble which features a sleeveless cut out design peplum top and a midi length pencil skirt with a center split is that modern moment that I really want to see Lara bring to the red carpet at this premiere. While I went to dramatic glamour for Daisy and ‘alien chic’ for Lupita, and this would be the perfect simple and modern look to compliment those. I added a little space kitsch with a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti metallic leather crystal star embellished sandals to loose waves, a kohl rimmed eye, bold red lip, and a pair of diamond and emerald Tiffany & Co. drop earrings to make this look absolute perfection. I may have elevated Billie Lourd to wear couture for the LA premiere of The Last Jedi, but for the London premiere I went to something a little simpler. This gold Maria Lucia Hohan Fall 2017 RTW pleated lurex chiffon gown which features asymmetrical hemline, bow detail, plunging neckline, and emphasized waist is the definition of glamour and I think that Billie would look absolutely chic wearing this pretty standard look on the red carpet. While the gown might read as standard, I think that on Billie with the right accessories that this look would come across anything but standard. I think a pair of gold Schutz ‘Ilara’ sandals, old Hollywood waves, a smokey eye, nude lip, and H. Stern jewels including a pair of star drop earrings and statement cuff would all ensure that Billie really delivers an absolutely beautiful moment.
The London premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi will take place on Tuesday January 12, 2017.
