Coming off the opening of the 2019 Cannes Film Festival the cast of The Dead Don’t Die seem to be headed to NYC tomorrow to premiere the film in the US. It wasn’t well received in Cannes, and honestly I’ve seen the trailer and I think it looks incredibly stupid. The cast however typically gets me excited so I am hoping they bring it to the red carpet at the premiere tomorrow night. They gave some okay looks at the Cannes premiere, but I am hoping that off that major platform that they are a little more relaxed. Chloe Sevingy wore custom Mugler in Cannes, and it just didn’t work. It looked cheap and dated. She has a very avant garde sense of style that sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. Now while that Mugler look didn’t work I definitely loved the hot pink and black Miu Miu mini dress she also wore in Cannes. For the NYC premiere of The Dead Don’t Die went for ethereal Roman glam with this cream and red Gucci Resort 2020 sleeveless toga cocktail dress. It is almost a costume, so I definitely need the styling of this dress to work perfectly no matter who wears it. I think that Chloe is one of the few who could take this Gucci dress and not let is come across as a costume. She can make an incredibly complicated look effortless and that is what I think this dress needs. A sleek bun updo, thick winged eyes, soft glossy blush pink lips, a red sequin Miu Miu ‘Solitaire’ sequined a-frame clutch, a pair of red Gucci strappy sandals, and glamorous but simple Hanut Singh ‘Deco Squares’ diamond and ruby drop earrings would all be the perfect finishing touches to this look to make sure it reads red carpet and not frat party. Selena Gomez was the one who really disappointed when it came to Cannes this year. It was her magical debut and she wore two absolutely terrible custom Louis Vuitton looks and a Chanel suit that Kristen Stewart wore in white at last years festival. So while I was really excited for Selena I ended up being incredibly let down. I am hoping that she will redeem herself on the red carpet at the NYC premiere of The Dead Don’t Die tomorrow. I figure that Selena will definitely be wearing Louis Vuitton again and honestly I just want to see her pick one of the good looks. Sophie Turner has been snatching up a bunch of the best Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020 looks as she has been making the rounds promoting her film X-Men: Dark Phoenix. The good thing about this collection is that Nicholas Ghesquiere has actually given a lot of options for right off the runway looks for his LV ladies, in addition to details that will make for some superb custom gowns. For Selena, and this premiere in particular, I knew that an off the runway look was just right since it definitely isn’t going to be campaigning for any major awards. I think Selena would look very chic wearing this Louis Vuitton Cruise 2020 cocktail dress which features a beaded zip up blush pink satin bustier bodice and a royal blue satin draped wrap style skirt (WITH POCKETS) for this red carpet. It is edgy, classic, young, and different all at the same time and I really do think that it would look chic on Selena. Now does she have the attitude to really work this dress? I know that she can, but her typical more dead fish red carpet posing isn’t going to work. I’m going to need her to channel the vibe she gave for “Same Old Love” to really bring the sexy and confident drama to this look. Style it with a sleek high top knot, defined eyes (though not as thick as she wore in Cannes), bright pink lips, a pair of royal blue suede and clear PVC strappy Gianvito Rossi buckled strappy sandals, and simple yet dazzling Messika art deco diamond tassel earrings and I definitely think that Selena would be back in my good graces. Tilda Swinton was the only cast member of The Dead Don’t Die to not disappoint me at the films Cannes Film Festival premiere. She wore a beautiful silver beaded and crystal encrusted Haider Ackermann long sleeve gown giving us that signature effortless glamour that we know and love her for. I want to see her bring more effortless elegance to the red carpet at the films premiere in NYC wearing this mother of pearl pink Chanel Spring 2019 Couture midi gown which features 3/4 length sleeves, intricate sequin construction, a v-neckline, and a flared tulle hem. This dress is a little more flirty and feminine than the typical look we see Tilda wearing on the red carpet, but I think that it definitely works with her avant garde sense of style. It would definitely be made to fit her style with her signature coif, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of light pink Manolo Blahnik ‘Dallitre’ crystal embellished sandal mules, and vintage Van Cleef & Arpels diamond floral cluster earrings.
The NYC premiere of The Dead Don’t Die is expected to take place tomorrow June 10, 2019.
