2018 American Cinematheque Award Gala Red Carpet Wish List

American Cinematheque is an independent, nonprofit cultural organization in Los Angeles dedicated exclusively to the public presentation of the moving image in all its forms and will present its annual honorary award to Bradley Cooper this year. The award gala is expected to bring out some of the stars who have been part of Bradley’s career to this point. Sean Penn will officially give Bradley his award, interesting fact before Bradley was a star he was in the audience of a taping of Inside The Actors Studio where Sean was the subject and asked him a question. It seems like this was the two’s only interaction. We will also see his A Star Is Born co-stars Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott, his Broadway co-star in The Elephant Man Patricia Clarkson, The Hangover co-stars Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis, Alias co-star Jennifer Garner, Burnt and American Sniper co-star Sienna Miller, American Hustle and Silver Linings Playbook director David O. Russell, Wedding Crashers co-star Vince Vaughn, and the writer and co-director of The Words Brian Klugman are all also going to be on hand to help honor Bradley as well. Irina Shayk is Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend and baby’s mother. She might be be taking to the stage at the American Cinematheque Award presentation, but I can almost guarantee that she will be on his arm as he walks the red carpet ahead of the show. She always beings sexy glamour to the red carpet and I am really excited to see what she will wear. She has been wearing a lot of Versace this year and I feel like this blush and burgundy Atelier Versace Fall 2018 Couture halter gown which features ombre swagged beading, a column skirt, and a thigh high split is perfect for her. Would I usually pick a gown like this for a film red carpet, even for a model? No, but I definitely think that for this red carpet it would be perfect for Irina. Hair styled in chic waves pulled back, smokey eyes, rose pink lips, a pair of pink Giuseppe Zanotti three strap sandals, and Chopard Red Carpet Collection diamond and rubellite drop earrings all would ensure that this look is head to toe perfection.It comes as absolutely no surprise that Lady Gaga will be on hand on Thursday night to celebrate her A Star Is Born director & co-star. I am uber excited that Gaga is going to have a major awards season run this year and I am expecting major red carpet moments. Recently she has been favoring more of an oversized wardrobe, but for this red carpet I went for form fitting and sexy glamour. I won’t lie when I say that I am already feeling like I don’t have enough options for Gaga worthy moments for awards season right now. I have been craving major couture moments, and she has delivered them in Valentino, Armani Prive, and Dior Couture, but I want even more. This dark crimson red Zuhair Murad Fall 2018 Couture column gown which features a dramatic structured bustier bodice with a plunging neckline, velvet waist band, peplum waist, off the shoulder sleeves, intricate embroidery, and sheer construction is exactly the kind of couture moment I am craving from Gaga. I have been in love with this gown for months now, since it first came down the runway in Paris back in July, but I hadn’t had the right person and event click for it. Until now. Is this gown something I would typically pick for an American Cinematheque Award Gala? Probably not, but it is something that I really do believe that Gaga would sell to me on this red carpet with ease. Does it need a lot of styling? No, but I would add a sleek vintage inspired updo, defined smokey winged eyes, matching red lips, a pair of statement crimson red Jimmy Choo ‘Viola’ crystal and feather tassel detail sandals, and a stunning Cartier High Jewelry intricate diamond necklace. Is it too much? Probably, but Gaga defines dress code in her own way and I really do believe that this would be a major moment for her.  Patricia Clarkson got naked in a tub with Bradley Cooper on stage when they performed in Elephant Man on Broadway in 2014, which ended up earning both of them a Tony Award nomination. She is confirmed to be among the many stars who will fete Bradley’s career on Thursday night. The two are close friends still and I am really excited to see what she will deliver. On this red carpet I went for shorter, but glamorous with this black Oscar de la Renta pearl-embellished cape midi dress which features a knitted style, a crew neck, short sleeves, a back lace up fastening, and a fit to flare silhouette. It is a little more covered than we are typically used to seeing from Patricia, but I just think that it would be a really gorgeous moment for her. She usually has her hair styled down in loose waves, but I almost want to see her wear her hair up in a romantic updo as to not compete with the pearl embellished shoulders of the dress. Simple defined eyes, light pink lips, a Serupi mother of pearl clutch, black satin Sarah Flint ‘Kara’ tuxedo inspired pumps, and a pair of vintage Elle Gafter south sea pearl and diamond drop earrings all would add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble for Patricia. Last, but not least on this list is the gorgeous Sienna Miller who starred alongside Bradley in both Burn and American Sniper. I have long been a fan of Sienna’s style, but it has been a while since she has really wowed me on a red carpet. I want to see her bring the glam to the red carpet at the American Cinematheque Award Gala wearing this allover gold sequin Louis Vuitton ‘Song’ gown which features faux leather straps, a faux wrap style, v-neckline, and asymmetrical ruffles on one hip of the gown. Sienna isn’t exactly a face of Louis Vuitton, but she has been wearing the brand like she is one this year. I haven’t been a friend to LV or its ambassadors, but when I was on the LV website and saw this gown I asked where it has been. I think that Sienna would definitely be able to infuse her more bohemian take on glamour in this gown for sure adding a loose romantic updo, smokey eyes, nude lips, an intricate antique gold Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ crystal embellished clutch, a pair of simple gold Aquazzura ‘Purist’ sandals, and some antique Fred Leighton diamond drop earrings.

The 2018 American Cinematheque Award Gala will take place on Thursday November 29, 2018.
