It is Oscar day and I am super excited about everything that could come down that iconic red carpet into the Dolby Theater tonight, but I am starting to move on to events that are going to come in the days and weeks following tonight’s major red carpets. The first major red carpet following the Oscars will the the London premiere of the much anticipated Captain Marvel. We have seen the cast here and there in recent days promoting the film but this is definitely the biggest red carpet the film has had yet and I am so excited to see what the cast is prepping for this red carpet. Brie Larson is in the title role in this film and I am already super excited about what she has worn. I love Brie and she has this major shift of style that covers everything from ethereal and flirty to structured and sexy. In the last month alone she has worn hot pink ruffled tulle Rodarte and a waxed silk Oscar de la Renta jumpsuit and that really is the definition of Brie’s style. I wanted to keep a good balance of strong style and feminine elegance when I was picking the perfect looks for her to wear for the two main premieres for the movie. As I was looking I saw this ivory Chanel Spring 2019 Couture halter neck floral pattern tea length gown which features side cutouts, gold banding, a peplum waist, and a column silhouette and it seemed to check all of those boxes of mixing strong and soft in addition to being a beautiful tribute to the late Karl Lagerfeld. Brie has rocked a few column silhouette tea length gowns in the past and I typically love her in those styles and I believe that she would own this gown on this red carpet. I think that a sleek side parted low bun, gold lined defined eyes, soft pink lips, gold lined eyes, a pair of gold Nicholas Kirkwood ‘Maeva Pearl S’ sandals, and a selection of David Morris ‘Out Petite Palm’ collection rose gold set pink rubellite and diamond drop earrings and cocktail ring would all ensure that this is that perfect meshing of strong silhouette and feminine styling. Gemma Chan has been killing the fashion game so far this tour. I knew she would. I love her bold style which meshes eccentricity, bohemia, femininity, and glamour and I am really excited to see what she and stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray are pulling for this tour. I decided to go with more of a Studio 54, disco glam moment for Gemma to wear on the red carpet at the London premier of Captain Marvel with this red, pink, and eggplant purple geometric pattern Halpern Fall 2019 RTW liquid sequin draped halter gown. Gemma is a huge supporter of British designers and while she has never worn a Halpern design on the red carpet before when I saw this gown I imagined how chic and effortless she would look wearing this creation on the red carpet. The faux amethyst rock crystal collar on the neck is actually a necklace and not attached to the dress and I am going back and forth on whether I want to see Gemma wearing it with this look on the red carpet or not. I do know however that if she wears it or not I want to see Gemma style this gown with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, and a pair of lollipop red Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ gemstone studded PVC strap sandals to ensure that this look gives effortless glam vibes from head to toe.
The London premiere of Captain Marvel will take place on Wednesday February 27, 2019.
