Sometimes I don’t like to draw out over days and days sets of wishes for different big events. So I started my wishes for the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards started yesterday, and with this I am done. There might be more stars that are announced as presenters over the next week, but starting tomorrow we are moving on to a week of Oscar’s ceremony wishes. So with that I am going to get started with my final set of Spirit Awards wishes. Amanda Seyfried is one of those presenters and I have to say I am surprised with all of the independent films that she has been in that we have never seen Amanda on the red carpet at a Spirit Awards before. She has three projects on the horizon this year, including the much anticipated Mamma Mia! sequel, and I have to say I am really interested in seeing what she will bring to the red carpets over the course of this year. She is usually one that I love, but her looks at the 2017 Venice Film Festival had me yearning for something more from Amanda. For the Spirit Awards red carpet I think that Amanda would definitely deliver something chic and bohemian on the red carpet and I think that this blush to antique rose ombré Sies Marjan Fall 2018 RTW asymmetrical draped cocktail dress would definitely be a really chic option to help her do just that. This gown is the definition of bohemian glamour and I definitely think that Amanda would sell this look to me with a purposefully messy ponytail, defined eyed, rose pink lips, rose and bronze Malone Souliers ‘Olivia’ open toe stiletto mules, and a pair of Piaget ‘Sunlight Journey’ pink sapphire ruby drop earrings.Armie Hammer is part of the cast of the Best Feature nominated Call Me By Your Name, and will be one of the presenters at the Spirit Awards next Saturday. He knows how to deliver a look on the red carpet. One of the few men who aren’t afraid of a little risk on the red carpet. I am just hoping that his stylist Ilaria Urbinati, and his wife Elizabeth Chambers, can convince him to leave his recently beloved Adidas tracksuits at home in favor for something a bit more formal. I think that Armie could deliver a relaxed, yet statement making look for the red carpet at the Spirit Awards wearing this cornflower blue Ralph Lauren Spring 2018 Menswear cotton suit with a dark blue and grey ombré wool jumper. I definitely think that this is a chic, yet masculine bold statement for Armie to wear for this red carpet. I would however swap the canvas boat slippers that the look was paired with in the lookbook for a pair of dark blue Officine Creative ‘Revien’ distressed derbies to really make this look red carpet ready. Armie’s wife Elizabeth Chambers is on track to be a real competitor for the Best Plus One award (and they are on track to be competitors for Best Dressed Couple) when it comes to my End of the Year Awards this year. She has stepped out looking fabulous with Armie at all of the awards shows and premieres he has attended recently and I am really looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us for Oscar week 2018. I was originally going to pay homage to Armie’s recent love of tracksuits by picking a hot off the runway Naeem Khan couture embroidered tracksuit for Elizabeth to wear on this red carpet, but I knew that she and Armie had been front row at the BOSS menswear show and the this electric blue BOSS Fall 2018 RTW silk maxi gown just complimented the Ralph Lauren suit I picked for him to wear better. I definitely think that Elizabeth’s style is more glam than a tracksuit as well, so I think that this chic sleeveless bias cut dress in its bold hue would be a much more in tune with her style. I think that with a pair of matching Aquazzura ‘Blue Flirt’ suede mules, old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, pink lips, and beautiful Niwika diamond and sapphire drop earrings all would ensure that Elizabeth and Armie are a power couple on the Spirit Awards red carpet. I’m not sure if Freida Pinto will be at this years Spirit Awards or not. She has been a presenter several times in the past, but she isn’t confirmed this year. I am speculating based on the fact that Freida has appeared on some promotional materials for this year ceremony. If she does I want to see her give an edgy take on red carpet lady pants with this black Elie Saab Pre-Fall 2018 one shoulder jumpsuit which features a single balloon sleeve, fringe hanging from the waist to the floor, and tapered pants. This look stands in stark contrast to the colorful and feminine styles from Uel Camilo and Bibhu Mohapatra that she has worn the last two years. I think that if Freida would style this look with a black satin Roger Vivier ‘Crown Jewels’ emerald buckle clutch, sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, black Christian Louboutin ‘Suzanna’ ankle buckle strappy glitter pumps, and a pair of emerald Chopard chandelier earrings that she would have a really chic yet edgy moment for the Spirit Awards red carpet. Leslie Bibb has been making the rounds supporting her Best Supporting Male nominated partner Sam Rockwell all awards season. She has been rocking great looks from brands like Yanina Couture and Prada for red carpet. She is one of the ladies giving Elizabeth Chambers a run for her money for the Best Plus One award, and I am excited to see what Leslie will bring to the red carpet at the Spirit Awards next Saturday. I went for a really chic moment for Leslie with this ivory Tom Ford long sleeve pencil dress which features asymmetrical shirred knots at neck and waist. It might be off the rack, but I feel like this dress on Leslie will ensure that this is a really chic plus one moment. I would ask her to finish the look with a romantic updo, bronze defined eyes, rose pink lips, a medium beige leopard print Tom Ford ‘Ava Ghepardo’ pouchette clutch, gold Tom Ford snakeskin sandals, and a pair of Atelier Swarovski by Jason Wu ‘Mosaic’ multicolored drop earrings to really ensure this look is head to toe glamour. Robert Pattinson is nominated for Best Male Lead at the 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards for his performance in Good Time. Rob is the face of the Dior Homme fragrance and consistently wears the brand for his red carpet appearance. I am really excited to see which looks he takes off the runway from the newest Dior Homme Fall 2018 Menswear show. He already took look one off the runway for the Berlin Film Festival premiere of Damsel. For the red carpet at the Spirit Awards I would love to see Rob wearing this dark green Dior Homme Fall 2018 Menswear suit which features an avant garde double breasted blazer and a black and red printed shirt. It is really chic for the moment on the red carpet at the Spirit Awards. I would keep the runways black derbies with white laces too, keep it head to toe runway. This is a statement making menswear look on the red carpet and if anyone could really make it work I think that it would be Rob.
The 2018 Film Independent Spirit Awards will take place on Saturday March 3, 2018.
