2018 AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Gala Honoring George Clooney Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Here we are at the end of my wishes for the 2018 AFI Lifetime Achievement Award Gala honoring George Clooney. There are so many potential stars whom I think could step out and celebrate George’s storied career. Some of the stars whom I think are most likely to step out to fete George are in this final wish. The only person I can honestly say that I am 99.9% sure will be on hand at the gala will be George’s wife Amal, but with the major star wattage that George has worked with along his career bodes well for a really glamorous night. Following her brilliant run as the president of the jury of the Cannes Film Festival and an almost underwhelming promo tour for Oceans 8 I would love to see Cate Blanchett step out on the red carpet to help celebrate George. Not only is she keeping the Oceans legacy alive but she has also stared alongside George in two films, The Good German and The Monuments Men. While this event is fully taking place in the summer I went very fall for the look I picked for Cate. I have loved this look from The Row Fall 2018 RTW which features a black long sleeve turtleneck blouse and a navy bell shaped satin skirt since I first saw it was presented back in February. It is very fall like, but then again Cate did just wear a Givenchy Couture turtleneck in Cannes. I think that Cate is one of the few people who could really know how to sell this look to me on the red carpet. She has the statuesque elegance to really make this look come across with ease. Add a sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Nathalie’ strappy sandals would all keep this look the epitome of modern elegance. Evan Rachel Wood has been killing the fashion game over the last year giving pretty much pants looks on the red carpet. She has helped us to redefine how we think about red carpet dressing. A gown was not the first thing I thought of when I was thinking of a look for Evan to rock on this red carpet. I feel like she might be on this red carpet since she stared in The Ides of March alongside of George back in 2011. Valentino has been really great recently and Evan’s stylist Samantha McMillan is a huge fan of the brand and is obsessed with the brands Spring 2018 Couture collection. I was thinking that Evan could easily take this ensemble from the runway which includes a mint draped bow bodysuit, grape high waisted trousers, and lilac cape and make it a really major moment. I think that she would bring her easy style of glamour to the red carpet and I think that this would be a really beautiful moment for this event. She could rock the look both ways with and without the cape. Pair it with a sleek hairstyle, nude lips, defined eyes, deep purple Saint Laurent ‘Anja’ metallic pointed toe pumps, and a selection of rainbow inspired Ana Khouri jewels including a pair of ‘Mirian’ earrings and a ‘Mirian’ cuff bracelet to really make this another gorgeous statement look for Evan. Oceans 11, Oceans 12, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, and Money Monster are all of the films that Julia Roberts and George Clooney have stared in together and he produced her film August: Osage County. It doesn’t surprise me that Julia is going to be the one who hands George his AFI Lifetime Achievement Award next Thursday, but I would be surprised if she wore something that is an inspiring fashion choice. Julia sticks to the classics, and the dress (or suiting) of her choice is usually black. I did make a but of a bold choice picking this navy and black Monse Fall 2018 RTW half velvet and half sequin midi dress which features an off the shoulder neckline, long sleeves, ruched detail at the midline and a draped asymmetrical hem. On many of the ladies I’ve featured in my wishes to salute George I could see them wearing this dress easily, but I thought that it was a really inspired option for Julia to rock on this red carpet. I think that maybe the hem will have to be adjusted a but either shortening it to the knee or lengthening it to be a gown. I would probably go with the former more for Julia than turning this gown into a gown. A black Edie Parker acrylic clutch, old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Pigalle Follies’ pointed toe pumps, and Fred Leighton black jade, rock crystal, and diamond drop earrings would be the way I think that Julia would style this dress and I do think that it would be a really chic statement for her to bring to this red carpet.Gravity is still one of my favorite movies. It was simple and dramatic and thought provoking all at the same time. The film is predominately just George and Sandra Bullock in space for the whole movie, and I have to say that Sandy’s Oscar nomination for that film. Sandy also plays the sister to George’s character in Oceans 8, though it is reported that George doesn’t actually make an appearance in the film. I would love to see Sandra step out on this red carpet, which is actually the night before Oceans 8 releases. Since the film has not had (and is not scheduled to my knowledge) a big red carpet premiere that I would love to see Sandra rock this red carpet with a glamorous moment. I think that if she rocked this sage green Brandon Maxwell Fall 2018 RTW sequin halter dress which features a column gown and a center split that it would be a really beautiful moment on the red carpet. It is a sleek and glamorous statement and I definitely think that Sandra would really own this dress on the red carpet. Style it with a grey glitter Jimmy Choo ‘J Glitter’ box clutch, sleek center parted hair, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, pewter Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Irene Neuwirth diamond, aquamarine, and green tourmaline drop earrings to perfectly compliment this look for this red carpet. Tina Fey made fun of George in the opening monologue of the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. “Gravity is nominated for best film,” Fey said during the award show’s opening monologue that year. “It’s the story of how George Clooney would rather float away into space and die than spend one more minute with a woman his own age.” George vowed to get Tina back for the joke and has since done so. I would love to see this turn into a trivial tit for tat and I think that coming out on the stage at his AFI Lifetime Achievement Award gala would be a great idea. She is expected to take home a Tony the Sunday following this gala and I think that keeping up appearances at this gala would be perfect. I think that Tina would own the red carpet wearing this incredibly glamorous burgundy Zac Posen Fall 2018 RTW gown which features a v-neck, beaded detail throughout the bodice, a pleated skirt, and draped detail on the back. I want to see Tina bring the glamour to the red carpet over the course of the next few weeks and I definitely think that this gown would be a really chic moment for her to bring to this red carpet. It would be perfectly accented with a glamorous updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Betty’ illusion sandals, and a pair of IVY New York ruby and diamond cluster earrings.
