My final wish before I dive deep into my End of the Year Style Awards is for one of the first red carpets of 2018. Following the Palm Spring International Film Festival Black Tie Awards Gala and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards we will have our first big movie premiere red carpet on January 4, 2018 with the LA premiere of Proud Mary. Taraji P. Henson stars in Proud Mary and I have to say I am excited to see what she will bring to the red carpet. Taraji has laid relatively low during the second half of this year and I want her to kick off 2018 in high style. I would love to see her rock this ink blue Azzaro Fall 2017 Couture sleeveless cocktail dress which features sheer paneling, crystal trim, and a midi length. This dress is sexy yet sophisticated and I truly think that if anyone can sell this look to me on a red carpet that it is Taraji. She knows how to give diva sex appeal on the red carpet and that is exactly what this kind of dress needs. With a pair of silver Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ crystal trimmed sandals, a navy smokey eye, bold red lip, and Stephen Webster diamonds including a pair of ‘Magnipheasant’ drop earrings and matching cuff ring this look will be ready for the first premiere carpet of 2018. Kicking it off the year in high style.
