Seberg by Benedict Andrews is screening at the 2019 Venice Film Festival and on its face it sounds like a movie that Oscar voters would definitely be intrigued by. The IMDB description of the film says: “An ambitious young F.B.I. Agent is assigned to investigate iconic actress Jean Seberg when she becomes embroiled in the tumultuous civil rights movement in late 1960s Los Angeles, California.” It’s stars are some of the buzziest of young Hollywood, in addition to Anthony Mackie, Vince Vaughn, and Jack O’Connell. That all being said when I searched the films name in the different pages of Gold Derby’s 2020 Oscar predictions I got nothing. So I don’t know what that means for the films fall film festival season. I definitely want the cast to deliver major moments and do the dog and pony show like they would if they were promoting a leading contender for an Oscar nomination. It has been a long time since I have really loved anything that Kristen Stewart has worn on the red carpet. Honestly I have to think back to days before her Chanel contract to really find a moment I loved from her. I want to see her bring her signature rock and roll edge mixed perfectly with the classic elegance we expect to see from a Chanel moment on the red carpet. I think the two looks I’ve picked for Kristen to wear from Virginie Viard’s debut solo couture collection for Chanel to wear in Venice this year do just that. For the Seberg photocall I would love to see Kristen rock the stage wearing this forest green Chanel Fall 2019 Couture sleeveless matching ensemble which consists of a halter top with a cowl neck and ruched bodice construction and a pair of sheer capri pants which features ruched cuffs with crystal embellished button details. As I was watching this runway show I saw this look and Kristen immediately popped into my mind. With a lot of events coming up I am sure that this will be optioned for her at some point, but I definitely think it is a perfect look for a Venice Film Festival photocall. Now on the runway Virginie had this look styled with a pair of black patent leather flat slippers. That is definitely something that Kristen would love, so I can see her wearing the full runway look. I personally would love to see her swap them for a pair of edgy black Christian Louboutin ‘Xiloboot’ pointed toe ankle boots with a silver angular pyramid kitten heels, a short wavy hairstyle, defined eyes, and dark mauve lips to really make this look perfect for this occasion. For the premiere I went for something a little more classically elegant with a navy satin Chanel Fall 2019 Couture halter column gown which features a wide belted waist. Now this very 90’s moment and I want to see Kristen really deliver this sleek and chic moment on the Lido red carpet at the Venice Film Festival. I think that styling this look with a pair of navy Christian Louboutin ‘So Kate’ pointed toe pumps, a sleek side parted hairstyle, navy smokey eyes, red lips, and a pair of dazzling Chanel Haute Jewelry diamond and sapphire art deco inspired tassel earrings would definitely make this one of Kristen’s best red carpet moments EVER> Margaret Qualley is gearing up to me a darling this awards season. She is already Emmy nominated for her role in Fosse/Verdon and is part of the ensemble cast of Quentin Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood. It makes me very interested in seeing what she and her stylists Jill and Jordan are cooking up for her to wear over the coming weeks. I want to see Margaret give feminine moments in Venice this year starting with this two tone chambray Prabal Gurung Resort 2020 mini dress which features detachable puffy sleeves, a v-neckline, defined waist, and a mini a-line skirt. I definitely think that Margaret could deliver elegance wearing this dress for this occasion. A loose updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black and navy satin Roger Vivier ‘Viv Fireflower’ beaded and bow draped pointed toe pumps, and navy and gold Christian Dior ‘CatStyleDior2’ angular cat eye sunglasses would definitely make this a perfect Venice Film Festival photocall moment. For the premiere I went for glamour picking this nude to charcoal ombre Christian Dior Fall 2019 Couture hammered silk strapless ballgown. This gown is one of the better creations that Maria Grazia Chiuri has sent down the Dior runway since she took over the reigns of the label three years ago and I honestly believe that Margaret would be able to deliver this in a very glamorous manner. A sleek romantic updo, defined eyes, dusty mauve pink lips, a pair of nude Rene Caovilla crisscross crystal embellished sandals, and beautiful Dior à Versailles high jewellery collection ‘Boiserie’ yellow and white diamond drop earrings set in yellow gold and blackend silver would all add the perfect finishing touches to this look. It would all ensure that Margaret’s Venice debut is on top form. As I have mentioned I want to see jury member Stacy Martin definitely have fun with fashion over the course of this years Venice Film Festival. I want to see her give us everything from the expected couture ballgowns and dramatic trains to short and sassy cocktail moments. Today’s wish is for the latter with this custom red Miu Miu sleeveless knee length dress which features a plunging v-neckline, ribbon bow details on the waist, an a-line skirt, and an ostrich feather hem. Miu Miu takes a center stage at Venice since the brands “Woman’s Tales” short film series is always screened that the festival and I am definitely expecting to see the brand dress Stacy for at least one red carpet over the course of the festival. I think styling this cocktail dress with a wavy bob, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of red glitter Miu Miu platform leather sandals, and dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection diamond and ruby chandelier earrings would definitely make this look unexpectedly perfect for a Venice Film Festival red carpet.
The 2019 Venice Film Festival will open on Wednesday August 28, 2019 and runs through Saturday September 7, 2019.
