Since there are so many wishes to make in just a short amount of time I decided to double up some days of wishes for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards. I am expecting some really beautiful moments on this years red carpet from all of the stars are both nominated and presenting. I am wondering how this trend of stars who stand in solidarity with the #MeToo moment by wearing black on the red carpet. Initially when I heard that we would be seeing a sea of black gowns on the red carpet at the Golden Globes my reaction as ughhhhhhhhh, but then I started to think. This year there were a lot of really striking black gowns on the red carpet like Lara Stone in Balmain at the Cannes Film Festival, Laura Dern in Proenza Schouler at the Emmy Awards, and Brie Larson in Oscar de la Renta at the Oscars. I also looked through the runways and found that there are a lot of really great black gowns that are anything but basic. So I am a little more interested to see what will come from this red carpet now. Emma Stone won a Golden Globe this year for her performance in La La Land and is nominated again in the same category for the 2018 ceremony. With the win from this year we could have already expected to see Emma on this red carpet, but with a nomination for Battle of the Sexes I have a higher expectation about what she will wear. Earlier this fall Emma was announced as a face of Louis Vuitton and so far she has given us a good range of designers on the red carpet. She hasn’t become that just Louis Vuitton one trick pony that most LV ambassadors have become. I decided that since there aren’t any good looks for the Golden Globe Awards from LV that I would buck the brand in favor of this black strapless Armani Prive Fall 2017 Couture ball gown which features a sequined bustier and a tiered tulle a-line skirt which features blue and pink embroidered details to make this gown just a little more visually glamorous. I had already picked this gown before the announcement of the wardrobe protest, and it was one of the designs that made me start to change my mind about what not loving the idea of a sea of black gowns. When I was searching for the perfect accessories for this look I found a multicolored sequined Louis Vuitton ‘Petite Malle’ clutch that matches the subtle color details in this gown perfectly. Add a romantic updo, smokey eye, bright pink lip, black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals, and a pair of diamond and ruby Louis Vuitton High Jewelry drop earrings to really ensure that Emma shuts down the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. Helen Mirren was one that I wasn’t really expecting to see nominated, but I was glad to see get one for her performance in The Leisure Seeker. I love seeing Helen on the red carpet because she always bring something that is incredibly chic, but always has a fun factor to her looks. For the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards I went into the Valentino archives to pick the perfect gown for Helen. Since Maria Grazia Chiuri left Valentino to head Dior we haven’t seen anyone wearing a look from any of the collections that she worked on with former co-designer Pierpaolo Piccioli, who is now the sole creative director of Valentino. It is a shame because there are a lot of really beautiful gowns still in the Chiuri/Piccioli archives that deserve red carpet moments. This blue floral brocade long sleeve ballgown from the Valentino Fall 2012 Couture collection is one of those pieces that I hope do get dusted off and worn by someone at some point and I think that it would be a perfect option for Helen to rock on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. This gown just oozes sophistication and I think that Helen would carry it extremely well. Styling it with a pair of dress blue Schutz ‘Hara’ satin sandals with a crystal heel, smokey eye, light pink lips, a chic updo with blue streaks, and a pair of diamond and sapphire Tiffany & Co. cluster earrings all would really make sure that this is a truly glamorous moment for Helen. Margot Robbie has a good chance of taking home this trophy next year for her portrayal of Tonya Harding in I, Tonya and I am really praying that she will deliver something really major on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet. I would most likely expect Margot to wear something custom for this red carpet, but how gorgeous would Margot be wearing this liquid gold velvet Schiaparelli Fall 2015 Couture column gown which features beautiful beaded details and a dramatic train. This gown is glamour defined and I am honestly shocked that not a soul has snatched it up yet. It is a gown for a grand occasion and I do think that the Golden Globe Awards red carpet is a perfect platform for it. I believe that with a gold Judith Leiber Couture ‘Prism’ polished metal coffered rectangle clutch, a pair of gold Giuseppe Zanotti jeweled three strap sandals, romantic updo, light smokey eyes, a nude glossy lips, and a beautiful vintage gold Van Cleef & Arpels diamond encrusted tassel rope bracelet Margot would have a winning look for if she does win.Saoirse Ronan is who I expect is the favorite to win in this category this year for her performance in Lady Bird which has given her many of honors and accolades already. I will not tell a lie that while I didn’t pick a totally new gown for Saoirse to wear for the Golden Globe Awards I did swap the gowns I had initially picked for her to wear for the Globes and SAG Awards since I had a black gown on my SAG wish list for her. I saw this black Gucci Pre-Fall 2018 velvet gown with a sparkling tulle train and a crystal belt buckle and Saoirse was one of the first few people that immediately came to mind, so I thought it would be a really great glamorous gown for Saoirse to possibly win wearing. This gown is dramatic and beautiful, but with one hair out of place this look could be very boring. A sleek updo, kohl rimmed eyes, a bold red lip, black Gucci ‘Ilse’ crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Neil Lane diamonds including a pair of black diamond teardrop earrings and a statement cuff bracelet all would ensure that this look is perfection.
The 2018 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 7, 2018.
