“BlacKkKlansman” LA Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

BlacKkKlansman first debuted at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year to a roaring crowd at the finish of the screening and then went on to win Grand Prize of the Jury, not the Palme d’Or. I would have expected this film to make another appearance at the Toronto Film Festival, but because it has a theatrical release date of August 10, 2018 and the fact that it wasn’t announced with many of the other Cannes films have been announced for TIFF this year I don’t think we can expect to see that. I would imagine however that the film will have a big gala premiere in LA, New York, Washington D.C. (I could see the Smithsonian African American Museum fighting to host a premiere,) or in Colorado where the film is set. My money would be on one of the first three, and it really could be held in any one (or more) of them.  Laura Harrier is a face of Louis Vuitton so it is a pretty solid bet that she will wear the brand on the red carpet. She has only stepped out a few times this year wearing anything other than Louis Vuitton. In fact while she was in Cannes promoting the film she wore three Louis Vuitton looks for official promotional stops including the premiere, photocall, and the closing ceremony. So I went to my girl Evita who helps edit looks from the runway and turn them into custom looks. I started doing this because we don’t always see runway looks on the red carpet and as I look at runways I see potential in different details. To create this custom Louis Vuitton tea length gown we took black and white sequin detail from the skirt of one look to create the bustier, the peach and grey feathers from the cape of another to create the a-line tea length skirt, and topping it off with the black leather bow belt from another look. It made for one of my favorite looks that me and Evita came up with based on this collection. Is this a real possibility? Who knows because we did come up with our design on our own, but we did take cues from what we see from Louis Vuitton. When it comes to the styling I want to see complimentary statement making styles adding a sleek low bun, smokey eyes, nude lips, a pair of black Louis Vuitton ‘Call Back’ monogram ankle strap and fox fur puff detail sandals, and Bulgari diamond, emerald, gold, amethyst, and quartz drop earrings to really make sure that this look is perfection from head to toe. When I put my Cannes wishes together for this premiere the only member of the cast that I had in it was Laura, but when it came to the actual red carpet I was very intrigued with Damaris Lewis. She rocked a head to toe Off White ensemble for the films premiere in Cannes and then an iridescent Roberto Cavalli look for the films photocall. Each look was eye catching and it got me very, very intrigued by Damaris’s style and I cannot wait to see some more. For a premiere right before the film is released in theaters I would love to see Damaris take a red carpet by storm wearing this bold yellow leather Ronald Van Der Kemp Fall 2018 Couture pencil dress which features a strapless sweetheart neckline, below the knee hemp, and a cutout detail. This sexy dress is perfect for a red carpet like this and I think that Damaris would be able to sell this look to me like few others could. Add her short pixie, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of gold Giuseppe Zanotti ‘G-Heel’ pointed toe pumps, and a gold Giuseppe Zanotti snake cuff to really make this a very sexy moment for Damaris to bring to life on this red carpet.
