Bombshell tells the story of the women of FOX News when they stood together and blew the whistle that the networks CEO Roger Ailes was a sexual abuser. The film is set to make waves during awards season. It has already earned several Critics Choice Award nominations and with the Golden Globe & SAG Award nominations set to be announced this week I am sure that this film is just starting its awards season run despite no love from the AFI Awards or the National Board of Review. The LA Premiere of Bombshell is expected to take place tomorrow and I am expecting that the cast will be on top form. Charlize Theron has earned a Best Actress nomination at the 2020 Critics Choice Awards and will be honored with the International Star Award, Actress at the 2020 Palm Springs Film Festival Black Tie Awards Gala for her portrayal of Megyn Kelly in Bombshell. I feel like it has been a long time since I have gotten excited about seeing Charlize on the red carpet. She has just become blah to me lately even when she is wearing runway looks I fell in love with when they were first presented. She hasn’t been breathing the life I know that she can into her red carpet looks. Now I think part of that is the fact I just don’t love her wearing Maria Grazia Chiuri’s bohemian take on Dior, but since Charlize has been a face of Dior for almost 16 years now I don’t see her severing those ties. So for this premiere I did go to a right off the runway look for Charlize to bring to life on the red carpet with this this black Christian Dior Fall 2019 Couture cocktail look which features a sleek black silk peplum v-neck bodice and a sheer 3D embroidered carwash pleat and netted midi skirt. This is one of the few looks from Maria Grazia’s Dior that I think that Charlize would be able to sell to me. It gives more of a sexy, structured, and glamorous take on MGC’s bohemian aesthetic and that is perfect for Charlize. Now recently a big sticking point I have had with Charlize’s red carpet looks has been the hair. Her pixie is definitely something she has rocked with great aplomb before, so again not sure what has been happening lately. But for this look I think that a sleek side parted pixie with bold defined eyes, bold red lips, a black crystal embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Palmette’ clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Renee’ strappy glittered leather stiletto sandals, a black Times Up pin, and dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2019 white diamond and emerald paisley ear clip earrings would definitely make this an absolutely major for Charlize to bring to life on this red carpet. When it comes to Margot Robbie she is going to have a busy awards season ahead of her as well. Not only did she just get a Critics Choice Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress for her work in Bombshell, but her film Once Upon A Time In Hollywood is DOMINATING the rounds this awards season. I am just praying that the end of 2019 and looking forward to 2020 will fair much better for Margot’s style than the rest of 2020 did. I honestly would have expected that Margot would have delivered her most major moments yet, but honestly she seemed to give more Worst Dressed of the Year worthy looks than best. As a Chanel ambassador there was a bit of a period of uncertainty of which direction the brand was going to go in the post Karl era, but Virginie Viard has kept the label going with the same aesthetic Karl laid out for the brand over his tenure. Virginie just showed her 4th collection at the helm of Chanel and it was honestly my favorite offering from her yet. This white 60’s inspired trapeze mini dress which features ostrich plumes on the hem and cuffs definitely fits the vibe of Margot’s other movie, but I think that it would be a perfect look for her to bring to life on the red carpet at the premiere of Bombshell. The look is fun, flirty, sexy, and glamorous and exactly what I feel like Margot would be able to sell on the red carpet. I think that styling this look with a teased bouffant style updo, thick sleek winged eyeliner, soft blush pink lips, white Aquazzura ‘Donata’ crystal strap pointed toe mules, and a pair of chic Mateo NY ‘Barely Blush’ pink morganite, rose quartz, and white diamond drop earrings would definitely make sure that Margot finishes 2019 in high style. Nicole Kidman is the only cast member on this set of wishes for the Bombshell premiere that didn’t get a singular Critics Choice Award nomination, but she is nominated with the rest of the cast for Best Acting Ensemble. Now for Nicole I decided I wanted to go for a bold fashion moment picking this fuchsia sequined Marc Jacobs Spring 2020 RTW suit. Regular readers know I LOVE color and I just couldn’t do all black and white looks for this wish list. I was looking for the perfect moment for Nicole to bring to life for this red carpet and I saw this suit and honestly kept scrolling, but it caught my eye because I just kept thinking about it. So I decided to go with it. Now thinking about how I wanted to see it styled on Nicole is vastly different from the runway. I would definitely ditch the metallic knit ruffled turtleneck, hat, butterfly glasses, and orange bag the suit was styled with on the runway. Personally I would love to see Nicole wear this suit bare chested with a lot of double sided tape and a Victorian Etruscan Revival gold and amethyst collar necklace from Fred Leighton. I’m not sure that would happen, but it is definitely what I think would be best. A loose updo, defined eyes, soft antique rose pink lips, and a pair of sparkling gold sequin, glitter, and PVC paneled Sophia Webster ‘Daria’ pointed toe pumps would definitely make this a major stand out moment for Nicole to bring to life.
The LA premiere of Bombshell is expected to take place tomorrow Tuesday December 9, 2019.
