Now that my Met Gala wishes are over, and before I dive deep into Cannes Film Festival, there are a couple movies with end of April and early May releases that I wanted to get wishes put out into the universe for. The first is for the London premiere of Tolkien. It is the story of the famed author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings books. The film explores his life and how he was inspired to write his famed novels. It has a pretty decent cast and I am excited to see what happens both with the film in its reception and with the cast on the red carpet. Typically, based on synopsis, I would think a film like this would be an awards season contender, but given the fact that this movie is coming out so early tells me that Fox Searchlight is not planning a big awards season campaign for the film. So I better enjoy the promo tour. Nicholas Hoult stars as in this film as the title role J. R. R. Tolkien. He is definitely one who flip flops when it comes to his red carpet style. Take this awards season for example. He started awards season at the Golden Globes wearing a simple classic black tuxedo. Flash forward to the Oscars he brought the fashion factor wearing a scarf draped Dior Men tuxedo hot off the brands latest runway. It made me excited to really see Nicholas play with his style and I want to see him continue to do so. For this London premiere of Tolkien I would love to see Nicholas give us classic with a twist by wearing this black Givenchy Spring 2019 Couture one button double breasted tuxedo which features intricate beaded embroidery on the jacket. I definitely fell in love with this suit the moment I saw it. If I had Givenchy Couture money I would definitely have this hanging in my closet. It is an absolutely beautiful suit and I think that Nicholas has the right stature to really make me fall in love with this suit all over again, especially paired with black patent leather toecap Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ slip on derbies made up of a velvet vamp and half d’Orsay openings in black satin. Now for the always beautiful Lily Collins I decided that while brands don’t usually dress two stars for the same movie premiere that since she has a relationship with Givenchy already that picking a gown for her from the label would be just right. I loved this black strapless gown from the Givenchy Fall 2019 RTW collection which features intricate silver beading, an a-line skirt, and sheer paneled pleats the moment I saw it and I definitely believe that Lily would wear it with effortless ease on a red carpet like this. Pair it with simple black Jimmy Choo ‘Shiloh’ crystal embellished sandals, an old Hollywood inspired updo, defined eyes, red lips, and Amwaj diamond two strand drop earrings as worn by Celine Dion, would definitely ensure that Lily delivers head to toe glamour in this ensemble.
The London premiere of Tolkien is expected to take place on Monday April 29, 2019.
