The last set of wishes I have for today features a presenter, some plus ones, and a guest of a nominated film. We are finally hearing some of the presenters being announced and with each tweet that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and I keep getting more and more excited about what Sunday night will bring. I am expecting lots of drama and glamour following last years red carpet protest wearing all black. I am ready to see stars bring bring lots of bold moments this year. I have mentioned that according to my history in my Best Dressed of the Year lists that it seems like every other year a look from the Golden Globe Awards makes the list, and this is the (according to history) year for us to see a major Best Dressed of the Year worthy moment on this red carpet. Catherine Zeta Jones won’t just be on the red carpet on Sunday night as a plus one to her husband Michael Douglas (who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy) but she is also confirmed as one of the many presenters over the night. I changed my mind at the last minute about what I wanted to see Catherine wear, even before she was announced as a presenter. I honestly don’t even remember what gown I originally picked for her. I guess that proves that I was right to change it. I love the idea of Catherine wearing this rich grape purple Elie Saab Fall 2018 Couture strapless draped gown which features a cape detail off one shoulder, gathered detail at the waist, and a center split on this red carpet. I know it is a glamorous moment all on its own, but I really do think that the sex appeal that Catherine brings into every look would just really ooze into this look. Old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, matching purple Marskinryyppy ‘Pauwau’ sandals, and a selection of deGrisogono High Jewelry including a pair of amethyst and pink ruby drop earrings and an amethyst, diamond, & ruby cocktail ring to really ensure that Catherine exudes glamour on this red carpet. I was expecting Irina Shayk to step out on the red carpet over the course of the promotional tour to help celebrate her partner Bradley Cooper celebrate his film. She did step out for the films first premiere at the Venice Film Festival, but since then we haven’t seen the two together on the red carpet. We might see that change tonight on the red carpet at the Palm Springs Film Festival Awards Gala, but if we don’t I am almost expecting her to join Bradley on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. He is one of the favorites to take home the Best Director trophy and is definitely a real contender for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama trophy too. I would love to see Irina bring sexy glamour to this red carpet opting for this gold Roberto Cavalli Couture strapless column gown which features intricate beaded embroidery, draped beaded fringe on the bodice, and a faux wrap style skirt with a center split. This isn’t a typical Golden Globes gown, but for a supermodel girlfriend supporting her nominated actor/director boyfriend I definitely think it could work. I want to see Irina fight for the Best Plus One and the pair to fight for the Best Dressed Couple awards in the End of the Year Style Awards and I think that this look would definitely put Irina in a strong first footing with this look. Sleek center parted locks tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, dark red lips, a pair of gold Christian Louboutin ‘Spikko’ spike studded PVC pointed toe ankle wrap pumps, and Tiffany & Co. by Jean Schlumberger diamond and emerald floral cluster earrings would all add the perfect finishing touches to this perfect plus one ensemble. Isla Fisher is expected on Sunday night as another of the nights plus ones to support her husband Sacha Baron Cohen who is nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy. Isla is one of the more underrated stars in Hollywood and I wonder what she will bring to the red carpet on Sunday night. I decided to go with this sunset pink Zuhair Murad Spring 2019 RTW silk chiffon gown which features a deep V-neck, braided cinched waist, gathered skirt, and a flowing maxi silhouette. I think that against Isla’s peachy skin tone and red locks that this gown would just ensure glamour and elegance on this red carpet especially when paired with old Hollywood waves, bold defined eyes, soft pink lips, a gold Jimmy Choo ‘Clemmie’ box clutch, simple gold Jimmy Choo ‘Mimi’ strappy sandals, and a pair of Martin Katz diamond and emerald drop earrings. I am PRAYING that the gorgeous Laura Harrier will be on the red carpet over the course of awards season to promote and celebrate her film BlacKkKlansman. She might not be nominated or a presenter (at least not yet announced) but I know that she could deliver a really major moment on the red carpet. I am taking a risk opting for this dusty lilac Tom Ford Spring 2019 RTW strapless gown which features a crocodile leather peplum bustier and a draped fringe column skirt. Why is this a risk? Because Tom Ford is notoriously know for being incredibly picky when it comes to who they will dress for the red carpet. Usually they only dress one person for each of the major awards shows. Would the brand dress a rising style star who isn’t nominated or presenting at a major awards event? I don’t know, but I really want to see them embrace this young up and coming actress and style star. I believe that Laura would be able to really sell this gown to me on the red carpet. She would definitely be one of my Best Dressed contenders in this gown. Pair it with metallic lilac leather Tom Ford ‘Padlock’ strappy sandals, a sleek updo, smokey eyes, deep purple lips, and a pair of faceted amethyst Bulgari chandelier earrings and I know that Laura will be able to easily hang with all of the ladies who are nominated and presenting on Sunday night. Leslie Bibb was one of the major contenders last year for Best Plus One as she made the rounds with husband Sam Rockwell as he picked up award after award for his role in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Sam is once again nominated for a Golden Globe Award in the Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture for his role in VICE, and as last years winner in that same category is confirmed as a presenter for Sunday nights show. Will Leslie once again make the awards season rounds with Sam? I sure hope so. I went to one of my favorite gowns from the Spring 2019 RTW collections with this black and white Rasario bow detail silk blend gown which features a strapless silhouette with a contrasting skirt, thigh high split, and an oversized bow train down the back for Leslie to wear if she does attend. This gown defines femme fatale glamour and I know that Leslie has what it takes to really make this gown come to life on the red carpet. I don’t really see her pulling an Angelina or a JLo putting that leg out on full display, but I do think that with a vintage inspired updo, smokey eyes, red lips, black glitter Edie Parker ‘Jean’ acrylic box clutch, simple black Christian Louboutin ‘Iriza’ half d’Orsay patent leather pointed toe pumps, and Harry Winston diamond cluster pendant drop earrings that she would define femme fatale glamour. Last but not least is Zoe Kazan who I am expecting to see on Sunday night supporting her husband Paul Dano who stars in the Best Miniseries or Television Film nominated Escape at Dannemora. I wonder if since Paul isn’t individually nominated if he, or Zoe, will be on the red carpet, but I am hoping that they will. I find Zoe to be a slightly underrated star and any high profile red carpet in a high profile look would help boost her own individual profile. I went for something I didn’t think I would love but the thought of Zoe wearing this nude tulle and embroidered lace Christian Dior Fall 2018 Couture strapless a-line gown has me very intrigued. I am very interested in seeing what Zoe could bring to the red carpet and I think that this gown fits her meshing of bohemia and glamour in the way that I know Zoe love to deliver on the red carpet and would be perfectly complimented with a romantic updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, and a pair of gold Rene Caovilla crisscross crystal embellished sandals.
The 2019 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 6, 2019.
