We have moved past my halfway point in my 2019 Golden Globe Awards wishes, but we still have many gorgeous potential moments still to look forward to. I think that this year will be the most dramatic and glamorous year in Golden Globe Awards history. The casts of movies that are nominated for Best Picture, even the ones that aren’t nominated, are likely to be on the red carpet. Despite the fact that they are not nominated I am really excited to see what they will bring to the red carpet. Angela Bassett is one of the more underrated members of the cast of the Best Motion Picture – Drama nominated Black Panther. I am expecting that she will deliver something dramatic and sexy when she steps out on the red carpet Sunday night to support the film. I saw this black metallic jacquard Zuhair Murad Fall 2018 Couture sleeveless gown which features a plunging neckline, leather belted waistband, a thigh high center split, full skirt, and dramatic train. This isn’t typically the gown that I would pick for this red carpet, but on Angela I know it would be magic. A full pulled back afro, smokey eyes, dark red glossy lips, a pair of black lace Christian Louboutin ‘Josephine’ lace-up pumps, and dramatic Jacob & Co. ‘Palladium’ diamond chandelier earrings would all ensure that while she isn’t nominated that Angela is here to hang.I just saw Crazy Rich Asians (I know I’m late to the party) and I have to say that I definitely think that Awkwafina’s character was probably one of my favorites in the film. She should totally get her own spin off film. I am interested in seeing what she will bring to the red carpets during awards season. She isn’t the biggest style star from the ensemble of Crazy Rich Asians but I think she will still deliver chic moments on the red carpet. I didn’t go for something huge like I did for Angela, instead opting for this simple red Solace London Spring 2019 RTW sleeveless jersey gown which features a square neckline and a flowing a-line skirt for Awkwafina to wear on this red carpet. For most I would have saved this gown for the SAG Awards, but I think that it works perfectly for Awkwafina to bring to life on this red carpet. A red Edie Parker ‘Jean’ marbled acrylic clutch, a pair of red Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Sophie’ sandals, old Hollywood waves, defined eyes, soft red lips, and Martin Katz ruby and diamond halo stud earrings would all ensure that Awkwafina is more than ready to show off her fashion chops on this red carpet. Chadwick Boseman was announced as a presenter last night, and I would imagine that he is most likely going to be the one who introduces the clip of his Best Motion Picture – Drama nominated film Black Panther. He has been serving looks on the red carpet and I am really excited to see what he will bring to Sunday night’s red carpet. When I was searching for the perfect look for him to bring to this red carpet I decided to keep his love of wearing coat suits on the red carpet, but up the formal game of them up a notch picking this black Alexander McQueen Spring 2019 Menswear tuxedo which features a silver paint pattern embroidered stripe down the front of the coat. This suit is bold and glamorous and I know that Chadwick has the chops to really make this look come to life on a red carpet. Despite being part of the Hollywood scene for years now Danai Gurira has never been to the main ceremony for the Golden Globes, but last month she joined Leslie Mann, Terry Crew, & Christian Slater to announce the nominees and being that she is part of the ensemble cast of Black Panther it would shock me if she doesn’t make an appearance this year. I would expect that Danai will most likely be announced as a presenter soon, but I think that we will at least see her seated at a table with the cast. I wanted to put this bright orange Carolina Herrera Pre-Fall 2019 cape sleeved gown for someone to rock on this red carpet the moment I saw it in the brands look book, but I wasn’t sure who I could think could make it work. So when I was searching for the perfect gown for Danai and I saw this look in my archive of saved looks I knew I had found just the right person to breathe life into this gown. There is a lot of movement in this photo which shoes that the gown has potential, but when posing on a red carpet a dress like this can look a little deflated. I truly believe that Danai would be able to push through and really breathe her major glam into this look. She currently has long braids which I would style into a chic large high bun, adding defined smokey eyes, dark red glossy lips, a pair of orange satin Manolo Blahnik x Vetements ankle wrap pumps, and a stunning statement orange titanium, diamond, and spessartite Vhernier ‘Orange Velvet collar necklace to ensure that this look is perfection.In terms of sheer beauty there was absolutely no one that held a camera to Gemma Chan as Astrid Young in Crazy Rich Asians. I was expecting major couture moments from Gemma as she went on the rounds promoting the film last year, but instead she opted for mostly short looks from brands like Oscar de la Renta and Simone Rochas. Don’t get me wrong she always looked beautiful, I was just expecting more drama from the British model turned actress. I have high expectations for what she will most likely wear on Sunday night at the Golden Globe Awards if she steps out to support her nominated cast member Constance Wu and the film which is nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy. I didn’t even have to search for the perfect gown for Gemma. As soon as it came time for me to pick the perfect gown for her I immediately knew I wanted to see her wearing this baby pink and white Rodarte Spring 2019 RTW dotted lace and tulle gown features a curved deep V-neckline, thin straps, a fitted silhouette and textured tulle hem. I love this gown and I know that it would take just the right person to bring it to life on the red carpet and I think that Gemma has just the right statuesque glamour to really give this gown the effortless moment it deserves. I would style the gown with a loose wavy bob, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a metallic pink python Tyler Ellis ‘Lily’ clutch (to add a bold pop,) white Sophia Webster ‘Nicole’ sandals, and a pair of Tiffany & Co. diamond and pink quartz pendant drop earrings to really ensure that this look is feminine glamour from head to toe. Henry Golding also stars in Crazy Rich Asians, but like most of the cast he didn’t receive a nomination at the Golden Globe Awards. I would imagine thought that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association will invite him to present at Sunday nights ceremony. He started this tour strong rocking some really great Tom Ford tuxedos (one that even landed him on the Best Dressed Men of 2018 list) but as 2018 came to a close his fit started getting sloppy. I am hoping Henry’s tailor was just on vacation and will be back fitting his suits to perfection as he makes the rounds during awards season. For Sunday nights red carpet I want to see Henry bring just a slightly boundary pushing menswear moment to the red carpet with this rich amethyst purple velvet Ralph Lauren Purple Label ‘Gregory’ slim fit shawl lapel tuxedo jacket paired with classic pieces including a white tuxedo shirt, black tuxedo pants, black bow tie, and a pair of simple black patent leather lace-ups to make this that bold menswear moment I am praying we see on the Globes red carpet.
The 2019 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday January 6, 2019.
