Welcome to the kick off of my wishes for the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival which will open on Wednesday April 18, 2018 and run through Sunday April 29, 2018. Tribeca isn’t a big platform for glamour like Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Toronto, London, or even the New York Film Festival. It’s standard dress code is cocktail chic, or the best day wear available. I am really excited to see what all of the stars will deliver on the red carpet over the course of this years festival. There are stars who are red carpet favorites and some who I want to see on their best form because I know that they have some real great potential. Jennifer Morrison is one of those who I know has great potential. Back in her early days on the red carpet when she supported her show House and when Once Upon A Time had just debuted I always looked forward to seeing what Jennifer was wearing. Since then I tend to find Jennifer trailing the middle of the pack. Not delivering worst dressed worthy looks, but also not delivering anything that I would place as a major moment either. When she steps out to promote her film Back Roads I would love to see her give something really chic with this rather standard and simple rich purple sleeveless Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2018 draped sheath dress which features an asymmetrical beaded bodice, side split, and a layered skirt (for modesty.) This dress is definitely not a boundary pushing look, but I think that if the fit and the styling of it is 100% on point that it could still be one of Jennifer’s better looks as of late. I would go full glam with romantic curls, defined eyes, a bright pink lip, a purple Edie Parker ‘Jean’ box clutch, and a pair of metallic purple Saint Laurent ‘Anja’ pumps to really make this a really bold yet chic moment head to toe. I am hoping that with the star power that is in the line up for Back Roads that most of the stars of the film will show up to promote the film of the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet. One lady who almost always wows me when she steps out is Juliette Lewis. She gives a bold, yet feminine approach to dressing and for a quintessential New York film festival I am picking a quintessential New York designer, Zac Posen. I would love to see Juliette’s friend dress her in this tangerine peacock floral Zac Posen Fall 2018 RTW cocktail dress which features a corset bodice with a sweetheart neckline, front darts, and embroidered detail throughout. I feel like this is a dress right up her ally. The structured elegance of the dress meshed with its bold color to me really would make for the perfect red carpet moment for the dark red headed actress. I think that if she paired this dress with glamorous old Hollywood waves over one shoulder, a defined eye, bold red lips, a tangerine suede Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ clutch bag, and a pair of blush pink and tangerine Pierre Hardy ‘Secret’ tied ankle strap sandals that this would definitely be my favorite look from this premiere. Back when she first burst onto the scene with the Transformers: Age of Extinction promo tour back in 2014 I was really excited to see what the future had in store for Nicola Peltz, sadly I have been majorly underwhelmed. I want her to be the brightest star on the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Back Roads, but something already tells me I have set my standards too high. I did go to her favored color, black, and one of her favorite designers, Alexander Wang, to make up my wish for her to rock on this red carpet. Nicola was perched front row at the Alexander Wang Fall 2018 RTW show and I could definitely see her being intrigued by this black asymmetrical tuxedo inspired mini dress. I think that the sexy elegance of this look screams to Nicola’s style, and I think that with the right styling that it would be a really major moment. A black Alexander Wang silver studded caged clutch, a sleek low bun, smokey eyes, dusty rose lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Nosy’ pumps would all add the perfect finishing touches to this look. I wasn’t able to fit Nicola into my upcoming Met Gala wishes, but I can definitely see Nicola asking Alexander turn this gown into for that red carpet. If she doesn’t wear it for the Tribeca Film Festival of course. One of the films I am really excited to see on the red carpet during the Tribeca Film Festival is All About Nina, because I am really hoping that we will get some really major red carpet moments from menswear on the red carpet. I feel like this year there are a lot of great menswear stars who have films to promote, but I am really hoping that Common brings his absolute A game to the Tribeca red carpets. For the premiere of All About Nina I want to see Common deliver a really chic casual moment on the red carpet with this navy Ralph Lauren Spring 2018 Menswear double breasted linen suit which is paired with a navy jumper. It is a rather chic moment and I think that Common would make this for a really chic moment. While I appreciate the navy espadrilles that the look was paired with on the runway I would swap them with a pair of dark navy Christian Louboutin ‘Monono’ suede penny loafers and I would remove the silk scarf tied around the neck of the model. I am really excited to see Mary Elizabeth Winstead join Common on the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of All About Nina. I think that Mary would more than deliver this black Alexander McQueen Fall 2018 RTW sheath dress which features a sheer yoke, draped off the shoulder sleeves, a midi length, and a red phoenix embroidery which has a tail of long fringe on this red carpet. I feel like this dress is the perfect elevated cocktail moment for the red carpet in Tribeca. I think that while the gown itself isn’t sexy in it’s physical design, but it just oozes sexy glamour inherently. I think that with a loose wavy bob, defined eyes, red lips, and a pair of black Alexander McQueen now detail stiletto sandals all would add the perfect touches for this look for the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet.
The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival will open Wednesday April 18, 2018 and run through Sunday April 29, 2018.
