2018 AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Gala Honoring George Clooney Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

George Clooney will be honored with this years AFI Lifetime Achievement Award with a gala honoring his career on June 7, 2018. I went through and found all kinds of stars whom I would love to see fete Georges storied career. Based on friends, former co-stars, and of course the real star of the show his gorgeous wife Amal Clooney. So over the next 3 days we will see all of the ladies I would love to see step out next Thursday for this red carpet. Amal Clooney is a queen of fashion and glamour. Before Amal I did always look forward to see what Georges arm candy of the year was going to bring to the red carpet, but no one has delivered glamour as well as Amal does. It’s no longer ‘George Clooney’s girlfriend or wife’ its now Amal Clooney, and her husband George. She was just the co-chair of the Met Gala and then the pair attended the Royal Wedding where Amal stole the show. So when she, and George, step out on the red carpet at his AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Gala I know that she will deliver something absolutely magical. I saw this burnt orange Zac Posen Resort 2019 silk gown which features a draped open back, plunging neckline, bias draping, subtle embroidery, and a soft sweeping train and Amal was the first person whom came to mind. It is a chic and glamorous moment that is pretty coming, but even better going. Amal really knows how to the the ante on her style. She isn’t exactly a predictable person. I never would have thought that she would wear Richard Quin foil ball gown with red carpet lady pants for the Met Gala. This is more of what I would expect to see from Amal, but from a designer we haven’t seen her bring to the red carpet yet. She tends to look to brands like Versace, Dior, Giambattista Valli, and Maison Margiela. Couture houses obviously, or vintage from William Vintage. But I think that when it comes to glamour not many do it as well as Zac and I definitely think that this slinky, figure hugging gown would deliver the glamour that I want to see from Amal on this red carpet. Style this gown with a loose updo, smokey eye, soft dark nude lip, a pair of gold Aquazzura ‘Purist’ metallic leather sandals, and a selection of IVY New York jewels including mandarin garnet and diamond ‘Euryalina’ earrings and a mandarin garnet and diamond cocktail ring to really make this another absolutely beautiful moment for Amal. Catherine Zeta Jones did back to back movies with George back in 2003 and 2004 with Intolerable Cruelty and Oceans 12. She would be one of the perfect people to help celebrate George’s career. She loves a good Zuhair Murad gown and I think that this teal Zuhair Murad Fall 2015 Couture kimono inspired gown would be absolutely gorgeous. She has tended to favor black gowns recently, but I think that this color would look divine on Catherine. The dress is more of a statement than we are used to seeing from a guest on this red carpet, couture isn’t usually in play, but I think that if anyone could sell this look to me that it would be Catherine especially when paired with a pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Fawne’ criss-cross sandals, glamorous waves over one shoulder, smokey eyes that match the color of the gown, nude lips, and a pair of Cartier High Jewelry diamond chandelier earrings. Emily Blunt was one of the famous faces who received an invitation to George and Amal’s wedding. She also stared in Wind Chill in 2007 which was produced by George and Steven Soderbergh’s production company Section Eight Productions so she is another one who I think would be a great addition to the line up of stars who should be on hand to help celebrate George’s career. I would imagine that Emily would take a more subdued track to glamour with this black one shoulder Oscar de la Renta Resort 2019 one shoulder gown which features white sequined polka dots, a defined cummerbund waist, column silhouette, and a sexy split. With every collection that Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim present as the creative directors of Oscar  de la Renta I fall more and more in love. They continue to explore their take on the modern Oscar woman and this gown is definitely the perfect iteration of modern Oscar de la Renta glamour. I wouldn’t add much by way of statement styling adding a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a black velvet Tyler Ellis ‘Lily’ clutch, black Jimmy Choo ‘Annie’ peep toe sandals, a pair of gorgeous Hueb ‘Luminous’ black quartz and diamond drop earrings to really make this an absolutely beautiful moment for Emily. Jennifer Aniston has been in several projects both with and executive produced by George Clooney, it has even been rumored that George has played a part in trying to put both Jennifer and Brad Pitt back together. So I wonder if Jennifer and Brad (whom I am sure will salute his friend) will be in the same room together next Thursday, or maybe even at the same table. When it comes to high fashion Jennifer isn’t exactly a fashion plate. She often wears east and simple dresses and I think that she would be obviously drawn to this black velvet Brandon Maxwell Fall 2018 RTW spaghetti strap gown which features a sweetheart neckline, a maxi length hem, a column silhouette. This gown is simple and sexy and that is exactly what I tend to expect from Jennifer. I wouldn’t expect anything crazy out of the styling from Jenifer either. A black velvet Tyler Ellis envelope style clutch with gold hardware, a sleek ponytail, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Vavazou’ sandals would all be what I would expect to see Jennifer style this gown with for whatever red carpet she would walk. If there is anyone who I am expecting, aside from Amal of course, to help fete George at his AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Gala is his former E.R. co-star Julianna Margulies, from his days on television. Since the end of The Good Wife Julianna has kept a relatively low red carpet profile, but I really do think that we will see her out and about on this red carpet next Thursday. One of the brands that Julianna has been loyal to her whole career was Narciso Rodriguez. With the designer receiving a CFDA Award honor this coming Monday I would love to see Julianna also pay a tribute to the brand on another red carpet. We don’t often see Narciso’s designs on the red carpet, but when we do it is usually a treat. I would love to see Julianna show up to honor George wearing this silver Narciso Rodriguez hammered silk gown crafted in bias-cut panels and features a cowlneck and cutout back showcasing the designer’s signature fluid lines. I had to go to the virtual racks of Barney’s New York to find a great Narciso Rodriguez gown for Julianna to rock on this red carpet. I think that styling this look with a sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a silver Rodo rectangle clutch, a pair of silver Gianvito Rossi ‘Plexi’ sandals, and a selection of Van Cleef & Arpels jewels including a pair of vintage diamond and pearl drop earrings and an art deco diamond bracelet to really deliver nothing but head to toe glamour. Shailene Woodley catapulted her film career thanks to the film The Descendants which earned George an Oscar nomination following a role in a hit ABC Family dramady. Since then Shailene has gone on to star in two major blockbuster films, A Fault In Our Stars and Divergent. So it is because of that idea that I think that we just might see Shailene step out on the red carpet to help celebrate George next week. Shailene’s stylist Ilaria Urbinati recently made and Instagram post that talked about how Georgina Chapman and her brand Marchesa should not be punished for the fact that Georgina was married to Harvey Weinstein, and idea that I totally agree with. After a long drought of not dressing a single a-list star since the Weinstein scandal broke was broken by Scarlett Johansson at the Met Gala. I would love to see Ilaria break out some Marchesa for Shailene to rock on this red carpet. I think that this black Marchesa Pre-Fall 2018 velvet suit which also features an organza pussy bow blouse would be a really chic moment for Shailene to bring to this red carpet. It isn’t overly fussy and I think that a suit would be a really great change of pace for her. I won’t say I love her new hair. Not many people can make bangs work, but I think that if she styled her hair into a romantic updo that this would be the perfect look to compliment her new hair. Simple defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘April’ glitter heel platform sandals, and Fred Leighton black jade and diamond hexagonal stud earrings all would really ensure that this is a really chic moment for Shailene.
