I am super behind with my Oscar party wishes and so I’m not going to give you a whole lot of muss and fuss up here and just get right into all of today’s wishes. Brie Larson just kicked off the Captain Marvel promo tour earlier this week. She looked AMAZING wearing a waxed silk draped custom Oscar de la Renta bustier and fitted cigarette pants. I put Brie on my list of Ones To Watch in 2019 list in my End of the Year Style Awards last year. She is going to have a major year I can just feel it. I had a feeling that Brie, as a former Best Actress winner herself and being in the midst of a major blockbuster movie promo tour, was going to be announced as a presenter at this years ceremony and so when she was announced I was extremely excited. Brie loves to have fun with fashion and can experiment with brands so I decided to take a step out of that normal box that we typically see from her picking this black fully sequined Bibhu Mohapatra Fall 2019 RTW sleeveless column gown which features strong shoulders, a gold sequin floral pattern, a plunging squared neckline, and silk hip peplum. I saw this gown and Brie immediately popped into my mind. The only thing I’m not so sure about are the hip padding. I think I would ask the designer to remove them for Brie making this a straight up and down column gown. Add a sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Shiva’ suede and mesh cutout pumps, and simple Hanut Singh ‘Tres Raffine’ white sapphire, enamel, and diamond pendant drop earrings and I definitely think that this would be a perfectly dazzling moment for Brie to wear on this red carpet. Gemma Chan might not be announced as a presenter at this years Oscars. I am hoping that after Crazy Rich Asians awards season has ended that we will still see her on one of the Oscar night red carpets. I adore her very feminine glamour on the red carpet and for the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party I would love to see her bring this cornflower blue Ralph & Russo Spring 2019 Couture silk chiffon gown which features a plunging draped neckline and fluid cape sleeves embellished with sequin floral embroidery to life. It is that soft feminine elegance that we are used to seeing from Gemma on the red carpet and I definitely think she could sell it to me on the red carpet. My only hesitation comes as I write this being that the flowing style could be similar to the major mint Ralph & Russo Couture gown worn by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley on this red carpet last year, but I don’t think that the two gowns could really be compared. A soft curled romantic updo, smokey eyes, dark rose pink lips, a silver Judith Leiber Couture ‘Slim Slide’ crystal embellished clutch, silver metallic and glittered leather Jimmy Choo ‘Talia’ strappy sandals, and a pair of Norman Silverman diamond vine cluster earrings would definitely make this a perfect soft and romantic look for Gemma. Katy Perry is expected to be on the red carpets of Oscar night. She is one of the co-hosts of the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and I definitely hope that she brings the glamour to the red carpet. For that red carpet I decided to go to a newer designer that Katy has worn a small handful of times, mostly as costumes for her Witness Tour, that just made his New York Fashion Week runway debut: Cong Tri. The Vietnamese designer knows how to do drama, camp, and glamour which are basically all the boxes that you need to check to be able to dress Katy Perry. So for the red carpet at the Elton John party I would love to see Katy show us one of the designers more glamorous looks with this black, blush, and iridescent sequined Cong Tri Fall 2019 RTW strapless column gown which features a dramatic silk bow neckline/sleeve/train. I actually learned about Cong Tri when I saw that Hollywood power stylist Kate Young was styling the show. While she doesn’t style Katy obviously the brands is definitely on Katy’s radar and this super glam moment is perfect for the Elton John red carpet especially if it is paired with a sleek side parted pixie, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Darcie’ strappy stiletto sandals, and absolutely dazzling Annabella Chan ‘Orchid Citrine’ floral drop earrings made up of pink coral cabochons, orange citrines, pave-set champagne, chocolate and white diamonds. I would imagine that Katy will quick change in between the Elton John party and the red carpet at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party. I decided to really up the drama and the glamour opting for this rose pink to raspberry red Pamella Roland Fall 2019 RTW strapless ballgown which features a bonded bustier bodice with a sweetheart neckline, feather and beaded embellishments, and a dramatic tulle ball skirt. I definitely think this gown is something that we will see on Oscar night and I really believe that Katy would be able to sell it to me. It is a big frothy cupcake gown and I think that if Katy rocked this red carpet pairing this gown with a sleek vintage inspired wave pixie, defined eyes, matching raspberry pink lips, bright pink Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania’ crystal embellished mesh pointed toe pumps, and a pair of one of a kind Irene Neuwirth rubellite tourmaline and diamond pave mixed shape drop earrings that she would definitely have a major moment on her hands. I can almost expect that Black Panther star and former Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o will be out to support her film on the red carpet next weekend. I’m honestly surprised that she hasn’t been announced yet. I am still thinking about what I want to see from her on Oscar night despite that fact. I will probably do something dramatic yet glamorous for the main ceremony. For the Vanity Fair Party afterwards I went for something a lot more fun with this pink and periwinkle Duro Olowu Spring 2019 RTW bias cut gown which features a fringe trimmed cowl back. I knew I wanted to see Lupita wear a black designer on this red carpet and I went round and round to find the perfect gown for her to wear on this red carpet and when I saw this one it really clicked. Duro Olowu is more of an obscure label based out of London. He is known for is intricate prints this gown is a perfect example of his work. It is femininity and glamour defined and I know that Lupita would make it come to life beautifully. I would love to see Lupita wear this gown with a pair of custom dyed to match pink Roger Vivier ‘Broche Vivier’ satin crystal buckle platform sandals, a bun of twists, defined eyes, dark fuchsia glossy lips, and Tiffany & Co. morganite and diamond drop earrings.Tiffany Haddish is expected to attend Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios Oscar Gala next Sunday. I won’t lie to you the first time I heard about this event was last year when Katy Perry showed up on the red carpet wearing a gorgeous Atelier Versace gown on the red carpet. I want to see Tiffany bring some chic glamour to this red carpet wearing this black Alexander Wang Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve tuxedo jacket gown. I love a good Alexander Wang moment on the red carpet and I definitely think that Tiffany has what it takes to really make a gown like this work. She would definitely have some Rihanna vibes wearing this gown. I would finish it with a silver Tyler Ellis ‘Grace’ crystal embellished drawstring pouch, a braided bun updo, defined eyes, red glossy lips, black Alexander Wang ‘Kaia’ PVC detail sandals, and a selection of Messika diamonds including a pair of miss-matched ‘My Twin 1 + 2’ stud earrings and a chic ‘Ritzy’ drop necklace to really make sure that this is a really glamorous moment for Tiffany.
The Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar Viewing Party and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party will take place on Sunday February 24, 2019.
