2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

Today I am continuing right along with my wishes for the 2020 Met Gala even though we do not have a date for when it will take place yet. With the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” I am expecting a red carpet that hearkens back more to 2009 “Model As Muse” or 2010 “American Woman: Fashioning A National Identity” which delivered a red carpet that embodies more of a sense of drama and glamour than they did to some of the more specific themes like “Punk: Chaos to Couture”, “China: Through The Looking Glass”, and “Camp: Notes on Fashion.” To be on theme this year to me will be easier than ever. I imagine that a lot of looks will evoke the very glamorous vibe of old Hollywood glamour. So I started looking through the collections and saved over 600+ looks that I thought would be the perfect match for this red carpet, and then started picking the perfect stars to bring the gowns to like on the red carpet. French actress Adele Exarchopoulos has made a turn or two on the Met Gala red carpet in the past, but she was the first person to come to mind when I was trying to think of the perfect person to bring this blush pink Fendi Fall 2020 RTW dress to life on the Met Gala red carpet. I fell in LOVE with this dress the moment it came down the runway and I definitely think that it would be a perfect Met Gala moment. This look takes ideas from Victorian glamour, lingerie sensuality, and flapper beading and meshes them into a perfect fashion moment. I would love to see Silvia Fendi take this ensemble and length it into a column gown for Adele to wear on the Met Gala red carpet. The look would exude sensual femininity in a super dramatic way. While most looks for the Met Gala I am hoping for a train I think that the full organza sleeves of this gown add enough drama on their own. A sleek updo, defined eyes, burgundy lips, a pair of nude Fendi ‘Ffreedom’ bow detail sculpted heel slingback sandals, and simple pink and white diamond Chopard Red Carpet Collection teardrop earrings would give Adele a perfect Met Gala moment.Coco Rocha knows how to deliver DRAMA on the red carpet, so when I was thinking of who could really showcase this canary yellow Alexandre Vauthier Spring 2020 Couture strapless ballgown which features a full skirt, ankle length, and all over tired ruffles Coco immediately came to mind. On the Met steps in the past Coco has dazzled in designs from Zac Posen, McQueen, and Ungaro in the past. It has also been a hot second since we have seen Coco on the Met Gala red carpet and I can definitely imagine her twirling up the steps working this gown to its maximum potential especially if styled with a sleek high bun, thick winged eyes, soft rose pink lips, a pair of dazzling nude crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Sacora’ ankle strap peep toe sandals, and white diamond Harry Kotlar leaf inspired cluster earrings. Gugu Mbatha Raw has been a Met Gala guest several times and since she has not seemed to slow as of late I am really excited to see what she and her stylist Cristina Ehrlich are cooking up for this years gala. I decided to go a very 50’s glam route for Gugu. We typically see one or two custom Emilia Wickstead moments on the Met Gala red carpet so I optioned a few looks and when I thought of Gugu wearing this gown customized to hit the floor I knew there was a real possibility in this look. The super glam of the snakeskin embossed metallic brocade infuses a touch of modernity into this classic gown. Making this a floor skimming gown would definitely ensure that this look is beautiful especially if styled with a curly updo, defined eyes, deep crimson red lips, a pair of gold crystal embellished Rene Caovilla strappy sandals, and a statement Buccellati collar necklace in silver and yellow gold with pearls and rose-cut diamonds.Kiki Layne burst onto the fashion scene about a year and a half ago with her performance in If Beale Street Could Talk. She has two projects slated for release this year including the much anticipated Coming 2 America. So after a stellar showing last year at the 2019 Met Gala wearing custom Gucci I am hoping to see her back on the red carpet this year. She can have her pick of designers to dress her for the Met Gala, but I was thinking of this soft butter yellow Chloe Fall 2020 RTW moment since I first saw it on the runway. This gown does not immediately scream Met Gala, but I would imagine that modifying this gown to have a dramatic train that it would be dramatic enough for the Met Gala red carpet. When it comes down to it the easy going, bohemian vibe of Chloe just doesn’t fit into the classic glam vibe I feel we are going to see on this red carpet, but overall the bohemian aesthetic has endured and deserves to be spotlighted as well and well Chloe usually dresses at least one star for the Met and the look is typically not on theme. Just on brand. This gown is definitely on brand and I can imagine that Kiki would ensure that it is showcased to its full potential. I think that with a creative updo, defined eyes, nude lips, simple gold crystal embellished Gianvito Rossi ‘Montecarlo’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of vintage 18k gold set Bulgari High Jewelry white diamond, emerald, and sapphire leaf earclips that this look would definitely be a really light and airy moment for Kiki to bring to life on this red carpet.  Naomi Campbell was another one who I immediately when I saw a look come down the runway that I had found the perfect Met Gala moment for her. This silver mirrored midi gown which features a structured neckline, fitted silhouette, long sleeves, and crystal fringe closed the Burberry Fall 2020 RTW show. The first video hit Instagram and when I saw this sparkling design walk I knew it was perfect for the Met Gala and that Naomi would be the perfect person to bring the gown to life. I would want to see this dress lengthened into a floor length gown for Naomi to really bring the dazzle to the Met steps. A sleek center parted hairstyle, defined eyes, bold lips, and a pair of silver Burberry ‘Kiltie’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps would definitely all make this one of Naomi’s best red carpet moments ever. When I picked this navy and black Jonathan Cohen Fall 2020 RTW cap sleeve a-line dress which features velvet sleeves and hem and intricate white floral embroidery for Tina Fey in my New York Fashion Week Fall 2020 wishes I didn’t have any intention of choosing it to be a Met Gala pick. I was going through the collections picking the looks I felt best fit this years theme I thought this dress would be perfect. I really do believe that it would be quite the chic and glamorous moment for Tina to wear on this red carpet modified to be a full length gown. Now this gown would scream glamour, but I would also add navy satin waistband to make sure that Tina’s waist is cinched. To really make sure the glamor is exuded from top to toe I would style this gown with a sleek updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of midnight blue satin Gianvito Rossi ‘Loren’ chunky heel ankle strap sandals, and simple yet dazzling Cartier High Jewelry white diamond and sapphire drop earrings.
