Tomorrow in LA the Women In Film will gather to fete this years awards honorees. This red carpet is always one that is chic and elegant as it is sponsored by Max Mara and the honorees, and celebrity guests, usually don the brands chic style moments on the red carpet. So when I was picking looks for this years honorees to wear on the red carpet I went right to the Milan based fashion house to pick three chic looks for this years a-list honorees to bring to life on the red carpet tomorrow. Amy Poehler is going to be honored with The Women In Film Entrepreneur in Entertainment Award and I have to say I hope she turns it out. We are so used to seeing rather boring looks from Amy on the red carpet and she definitely will have simple black Max Mara suits as options given to her, but I definitely would love to see her take a little risk. I was looking at Max Mara looks that I have saved and when I saw this black Max Mara Spring 2019 RTW ensemble which consists of a ‘Virgus’ glossy jersey blouse that features one sleeve and a half-collar detail at the neckline and a pair of ‘Capsula’ wool trousers that feature a high waistline with subtle front pleats, a cropped length, and ruffles down the side of each leg I thought what an amazing moment it would be for Amy to wear on this red carpet. It is definitely just outside of her more traditionalist wheelhouse, but I think that it has the potential to be really great. The clothes themselves are such a statement that I would keep the styling super simple with a sleek low bun, defined eyes, nude pink glossy lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pointed toe leather pumps, and vintage mid-century diamond swirl earrings from Beladora to make this look perfect for Amy. Elizabeth Debicki continues to be a rising stars. Last year the young talent was honored with the Chopard Trophy at the Cannes Film Festival as a rising star with enormous potential and this year Women In Film will be honoring her with Max Mara Face of the Future Award. I have long thought Elizabeth has the potential to be amongst the ranks of Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Jessica Chastain, and Diane Kruger. I just think she needs a new stylist. Maybe Petra Flannery, Samantha McMillen, Michaela Erlanger, Julia Von Bohem, or Elizabeth Stewart. I think those women would know how to dress Elizabeth to serve major moment after major moment for every red carpet appearance she makes. The Women in Film Awards isn’t the most exciting red carpet of the year, but I still want to see glamour from Elizabeth on this red carpet. I decided to go for that simplistic glamour for her opting for this blush Max Mara Pre-Fall 2019 sleeveless column gown which features a chiffon cape. The simple gown is definitely elevated via that cape, but I would leave the runways belt at home. Finishing the look with a sleek braided updo, defined eyes, rose pink lips, a cotton candy pink glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Tatiana’ crystal broach detailed clutch, a pair of simple blush pink suede Jimmy Choo ‘Dochas’ crystal trimmed sandals, and dazzling Cartier morganite, opal, pink sapphire, and diamond drop earrings would definitely make this look perfect for this red carpet, while being just extra enough. Women In Film will be honoring Issa Rae with the Emerging Entrepreneur Award which is only fitting since she made it huge thanks to Insecure, which she not only stars in but also produces, she has just been cashing major checks and turning her checks into new projects. For tomorrow nights red carpet I had originally shunned Max Mara for Issa instead opting for a colorful Mary Katrantzou ensemble because the looks from Spring, Pre-Fall, and Fall all seemed to be very similar. I had forgotten the brand just showed its Resort 2020 collection in Berlin recently until I saw it on a Moda Operandi trunkshow. I saw this sand colored origami draped column gown which features a silver metal necklace/halter, belted waist, and a center split. Now it isn’t the typical colorful look we are used to seeing from Issa, but I think that she has the perfect elegance to make this gown come to life on the red carpet. A chic bun of braids, smokey eyes, nude lips, an anthracite grey Jimmy Choo ‘J Box’ glittered clutch, a pair of statement anthracite grey Jimmy Choo ‘Karima’ rock crystal embellished sandals, and Anita Ko diamonds including a pair of garland wreath earrings and a selection of different rings would definitely make this an absolutely chic moment.
The 2019 Women in Film Awards Gala will take place tomorrow Wednesday June 12, 2019.
