Welcome back! I hope you all had a wonderful and fabulous Christmas! I am now 100% full steam ahead on what will come to us in 2018! With all of my wishes for film stars to rock on the red carpet it is time to move on to all my wishes for the ladies nominated for their roles on television. Kicking off today I have my wishes for the stars who have earned a nomination for Best Actress in a TV Drama. This is one of those categories where the race is really tight, so I would imagine that everyone in the category will be on their top game.Based on the buzz from the internet I would say that Outlander star Caitriona Balfe is the fan favorite to take home the 2018 Golden Globe in this category, but I think that many will be upset when one of the other ladies nominated in this category win. Caitriona is beautiful and the former model turned actress can really wow me, but when it comes to her Globes gowns in the past I have been pretty underwhelmed. I want to see her really go for the glamour this year with this brick red J. Mendel Pre-Fall 2018 pleated, stripe printed gown which featured beaded embroidery at the sleeve line and the waist. To me this gown screams glamour and Caitriona’s statuesque carriage I think would really make this a really major moment on the red carpet. The silhouette isn’t really anything to laud, but on someone as tall as Caitriona that with the perfect precise styling it could compete against the dramatic trains and couture ball skirts that we are bound to see on this red carpet. I think that with a sleek low bun, kohl rimmed eyes, a matching brick red lip, a gold Judith Leiber Couture ‘New Goddess’ crystal clutch, gold Steve Madden ‘Leona’ crystal embellished sandals, and a pair of vintage gold set Boucheron diamond and ruby earrings would add all the perfect finishing touches to really ensure that this is one of Caitriona’s best red carpet looks ever. Claire Foy is one who I feel has great potential, but something about her looks just end up falling flat for me. She is the epitome of royal perfection playing Queen Elizabeth II in The Crown, so I know she can be on point. I want her to channel that glamour when she steps onto the Golden Globe Awards red carpet on January 7, 2018. Claire is the reigning holder of the title in this category, but there is a really tight race in this category this year. Claire wore custom pink sequin Erdem earlier this year to collect her Globe, and I went back to the brand yet again for her to wear for next years red carpet. I would love to see Erdem take this red, black, and grey Pre-Fall 2018 jacquard sleeveless cocktail dress which features a square neckline and an a-line skirt and turn it into a beautiful floor skimming ball gown. This dress would evoke the same silhouettes that Claire is known to rock as QE2 in The Crown, but in a bit of a more modern and edgy manner. I think that it would perfectly compliment her dark raven locks which I would want to see styled in a chic side parted style. Finish the look with defined eyes, a dark red lip, silver glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Annie’ sandals, and vintage Fred Leighton diamond chandelier earrings to really make this look total perfection.Elisabeth Moss is one that I can definitely picture wearing black to stand in solidarity against sexual violence in the entertainment industry by wearing black on the red carpet at the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, especially given the subject matter of her show. Elisabeth is the likely winner in this category next year and I really want to see her deliver a wow moment on the red carpet. While I think that Elisabeth will wear black, the gown I want to see her wearing is a bold red. This brand new red Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2018 gown which features braided detail on neckline, waistline, and straps, pleating throughout, and a V-neckline screams Elisabeth’s laid back approach to glamour and I think that it would be a really beautiful moment for her. Style it with old Hollywood waves, a defined eye, nude lip, Boucheron diamond and ruby earrings, and a pair of red Gucci ‘GG Web’ crystal broach and ribbon bow sandals to really make this the absolutely gorgeous moment that I know it can be. Out of all the nominees this year I think the on that I saw coming the least was 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford. The show received such wishy washy reception that I didn’t think that any awards ceremony would dare touch it. I personally thought 13 Reasons Why is one of the best shows of 2017 and really talked about teen suicide in a way that I thought would connect with youth. I didn’t think it glamorized suicide I thought it brought awareness to the signs that someone might be contemplating it. Anyway, I don’t think we will see Katherine take this trophy home. If she did it would be a major upset, but I am really interested in seeing what she will bring to her first major awards show red carpet. I think that Katherine would look gorgeous wearing this black Alexander McQueen gown which features red floral cluster beaded embroidery, long sleeves with masculine padded shoulders, and a deep V neck leading into a fitted waist. This gown is modern glamour defined and for a first major awards show I think that it would be seen as a really beautiful moment for Katherine. A red rose ornamented Alexander McQueen knuckle clutch, ruby red velvet RAYE ‘Blake’ sandals, a chic updo, smokey eye, red lip, and a selection of Adler jewels including a pair of ruby and diamond drop earrings and a double teardrop ruby and diamond cocktail ring all ensure that Katherine shuts down her first ever Golden Globe Awards red carpet.Rounding out this list is the beautiful Maggie Gyllenhaal, whom I love to see on the red carpet. I tried to start watching The Deuce, but I just couldn’t get into it. I am really excited to see what she will wear on the red carpet at the Globes next year. As I write all of these wishes I find myself still asking if I should swap the colorful gown that I have picked for them in favor of a black gown. I went back and forth with Maggie. She very well could rock a beautiful custom black Prada or Miu Miu gown on this red carpet. I think there are so many beautiful ideas out there for custom gowns, but I really want to see some stars deliver great color moments on the red carpet. I think that Maggie in this pale yellow Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2017 Couture 40’s inspired column gown which features puffy sleeves, a ribbon belted waist with a crystal broach buckle, and a feathered hem would be the perfect change of pace to black gowns, even if they are for a good statement. Maggie does this 40’s style of glamour extremely well and I think that there would be no better place than the Golden Globe Awards to really make this look come to life. A vintage inspired updo, simple winged eyes, a pale pink lip, nude Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ sandals, and a selection of white and yellow diamond Harry Winston jewels including a pair of cluster earrings and a statement cocktail ring all would really ensure that Maggie has one of the best red carpet moments that she has ever had.
The 2018 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 7, 2018.
