There are lots of blockbuster movie premieres coming up. We are back with another, yes ANOTHER, movie in the Terminator franchise. I have to admit that when I heard about Terminator: Dark Fate I rolled my eyes. I just don’t know why we can’t just leave well enough alone. Why do we have to keep messing with series’? I crave new stories being told. We get thousands of new books every year that can be the starting point of a new movie franchise. I have personally read several I would love to see turned into movies this year alone, why not cultivate something new? You don’t have to tell me. I already know the answer. It just bothers me. All that being said I am intrigued at what will happen on the red carpet at the films premiere in LA on Monday. The cast has been making the rounds internationally promoting the film and while no one has delivered a real WOW moment on a red carpet yet there have been several intriguing choices. I am hoping that when the tour takes them to the big premiere in LA that we see some uber chic moments on the red carpet. Mackenzie Davis has been one I have kept my eyes on for a while now. She works with power stylist Karla Welch and knowing that Karla loves to create a moment and I would imagine that she is cooking up a dramatic moment for Mackenzie to wear on the red carpet at the LA premiere of Terminator: Dark Fate. We have already seen Mackenzie grab a coveted gown right off the Spring 2020 runways when she wore a fringed Jil Sander gown for the Mexico City premiere of this film (I’m still a little salty I never got to use that gown in a wish list before it was worn) so I decided to go for a big moment picking this hot off the runway black Valentino Spring 2020 RTW gathered neckline cotton blend maxi gown which features a relaxed fit, plunging v-neckline, long sleeves, and a gathered ruffle neckline. I honestly didn’t have to do a whole lot of searching for something for Mackenzie to wear on this red carpet. Knowing how much Karla adores Valentino (don’t we all) I went right to the brand and as soon as I saw this strong gown I believed I had found the perfect moment for Mackenzie to deliver on this red carpet. As someone who usually advocates for color and pattern I definitely believe that this gown is PERFECT for a star of a major blockbuster to wear on this red carpet and still be able to make her presence known. A sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of black suede Gianvito Rossi ‘Poppy’ strappy platform sandals, and a very chic 18k gold and diamond grooved panel vintage Van Cleef & Arpels collar necklace from Beladora would all add the perfect finishing touches to this look making this that super major moment for Mackenzie to deliver on this red carpet. Natalia Reyes is a new face for me. I had never heard of her prior to the promo tour for Terminator: Dark Fate. That being said she is working with Hollywood power stylist Micaela Erlanger who has put her in looks from Alexander Wang and Longchamp on the tour trail so far. Now all of Natalia’s looks during this tour so far have been more on the casual side for photocalls, so I am really interested in seeing what Micaela will wear on the red carpet for a big gala movie premiere. So for the LA premiere of Terminator: Dark Fate I decided to go for glamour with this deep petrol blue Marchesa Spring 2020 RTW one shoulder draped satin gown which features a tea length, column silhouette, one-shoulder ruffled embellishment, and threadwork and crystal embroidery over a sheer panel down the back. We have been, very slowly, seeing stylist starting to put their clients back in Marchesa on the red carpet. I feel like we are well past how the Harvey Weinstein scandal should be affecting his estranged wife Georgina Chapman and her business. Not knowing much about Natalia’s style aside from the two casual looks I went on a search for a gown that I just think would be a beautiful moment on her. I want to see her repertoire of designers expand and I definitely believe that Natalia would deliver this gown on this red carpet especially if styled with a romantic updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a black crystal embellished Marchesa clutch, black patent leather and suede Jimmy Choo ‘Katie’ strappy crystal and bow embellished sandals, and a pair of dazzling Anabela Chan x Diamond Foundry ‘Orchid’ white diamond floral drop earrings.
The LA premiere of Terminator: Dark Fate is expected to take place on Monday October 28, 2019.
