We are just over half way done with my wishes for this years Tribeca Film Festival and as I have said many times now I am really looking forward to seeing what the major wattage of star power has in store for this years red carpets. So many stars pack into some of these films, which is really different than in years past. I feel like in the past most of the films at Tribeca had maybe one, two big names at most. This year it seems like two and three big names are the norm in each of the films that star a-list Hollywood elite. That could mean two things. One: that one of the cast members will represent everyone in the film. Two: that we are in store for some star packed movie premieres over the course of this years festival. I’m hoping for option two. It means more glamour, and I am all about the glam. I find it funny that without planning almost all of my menswear wishes for this years festival have fallen into the first spot on my wish lists. I made a goal for 2018 to incorporate more menswear into the blog. I talk often about women taking more risks and I often complain that men don’t take enough risk. It was then that I decided if I put out options for dudes to really deliver some major moments on the red carpet that maybe the conversation could be started. Now here we are and I have already written 24 wish lists that include menswear and this latest wish for Common to rock Gucci for the Tribeca premiere of Blue Night makes for the 25th post this year with menswear incorporated into it. Common has two films premiering this year and I definitely think that this charcoal grey and black gingham plain Gucci two button suit which features slate-blue embroidered bees all over is something that could deliver a real eye catching menswear moment on the red carpet. Common isn’t afraid of color, special details, and print on the red carpet and I think that this suit incorporates all of those ideas in a really chic manner. I think that what really sold the idea of this look to me was the lookbook picture. The model is standing as we often see Common stand/pose on the red carpet and the styling is also very Common. I would keep the crisp white shirt buttoned all the way up with out the tie and the black Gucci loafers with the gold horsebit detail to really ensure that this suit is styled perfectly for the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet. It isn’t very often we see Renée Zellweger on the red carpet, so when I saw that she was part of the cast of Blue Night I got a little bit excited. I love seeing what she will bring to the red carpet. I always think that it is a safe bet to pick a Carolina Herrera dress for the actress (since a good 90% of her red carpet looks from the last decade have come courtesy of the brand,) and I didn’t stray from that for the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival. I think that this fuchsia pink Carolina Herrera Fall 2018 RTW midi dress which features long sheer sleeves, high neck with a structured bodice, and a flowing skirt is right up Renée’s ally and I think that she would own it on the red carpet at the Tribeca premiere of Blue Night. With a loose updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of nude Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pointed toe pumps I think that Renée would have a really chic moment for a return to the red carpet. Sarah Jessica Parker is another I feel like we don’t see often enough on the red carpet anymore. I feel like she has focused so much more on her businesses outside of film that she has kept a relatively low profile, so I was really excited to see that she is also part of the cast of Blue Night and I am praying that the quintessential New Yorker gets all gussied up for a quintessential New York event. While I would usually think a quintessential New Yorker at a quintessential New York event would call for a quintessential New York designer, but not this time. At least for me. I decided to pick a statement look from Australian brand Maticevski with this bold Fall 2018 RTW design which features long black waxed silk sleeves and a white a-lone tea length gown colored in a beautiful bold colored hand painted print. I was flipping through the lookbook and saw this dress and SJP immediately came to mind because it is her signature silhouette. I feel like the red carpet at Tribeca is the perfect place to experiment with new designers and I have a feeling that if done right that this would be one of SJP’s best red carpet moments in recent history. I feel like if Sarah styled this look with a sleek bun updo, navy glitter defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of her black SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker ‘Encore’ glitter pumps with crystal bow detail that this would definitely be a drop dead glamour moment for Sarah. I have to say that I have no idea what The Seagull but just based on the title I am intrigued to see what I am sure will be a wonderfully artsy movie. With the cast it had I am sure that it will be a film that gets the film world talking. Elisabeth Moss has been on a roll. She has taken home every award she has been nominated for thanks to her performance in The Handmaids Tale (whose second season is about to drop and I am mucho excited.) I have to say though that her style hasn’t been award winning. I feel like almost everything she has worn over the last year or so has either washed her out or made her look lumpy (or both) which really surprises me. I’m not sure if my choice for her to rock on the Tribeca premiere red carpet of The Seagull will help with the latter, but I definitely think that this dark gold and black Emilia Wickstead Fall 2018 RTW long sleeve midi dress which features a collar, square bust, plaid print, and beaded embellishment would help be a stand out look for her. I might as Emilia to remove the attached collar as Elisabeth has a short neck and this detail might make it look like shes been decapitated and had her head reattached. Styling it with old Hollywood waves, defined waves, a red lip, black glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Ellipse’ clutch, and a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Black Star Romy’ pumps all would add the perfect enhancements to this film festival ready red carpet moment. I have to say that while I am excited about the fact that Elisabeth is in The Seagull I am really excited that Saoirse Ronan is part of the cast. She shut down awards season from beginning to end, and I am hoping that she keeps up the major mojo that she has been putting down. I definitely think that Saoirse would look really chic on the Tribeca Film Festival red carpet wearing this silver Cushnie et Ochs Fall 2018 RTW slip dress which features a plunging neckline a sheer embroidered detail hem. She shut down the awards season red carpets several times wearing Cushnie and I definitely think that the two are a match made in heaven. I think that a sleek updo, dark berry lips, defined eyes, and a pair of silver glitter Casadei ‘Blade’ sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble.
The 2018 Tribeca Film Festival will open Wednesday April 18, 2018 and run through Sunday April 29, 2018.
