2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

I finally finished picked all my wishes for this years Met Gala. This year with all the uncertainty in the world and a whole slew of event cancellations has allowed me to do A LOT of wishes for this years red carpet. Today is list number 3 and I have 30 more planned. It was not easy thing picking over 170 looks that I want to see brought to life on the Met Gala red carpet this year. I am always interested in seeing how stars will interpret the theme of the gala. I am interpreting “About Time: Fashion & Duration” as classic glamour. So that means on this red carpet I want to see a lot of super dramatic takes on glamour like the six gowns below. So enjoy today’s set of wishes and just stay tuned! Supermodel Adriana Lima always exudes sexy glamour on the red carpet even when she is giving us classic glamour. I am so excited to see what she will bring to the Met Gala red carpet this year. In the past I haven’t been in love with anything that Adriana has worn on this red carpet. To be honest I cannot even remember looks she’s worn at the Met before even though I know she’s been there. That all would change if she turned to one of my favorite New York designers Area to create a custom gown based on this silver Swarovski crystal embellished bodysuit which features a cable knit braided bodice, a plunging neckline, and fringe. I imagine that creating a gown out of this look would just be making sure the fringe is a little fuller and then brought all the way to the floor allowing for the bodysuit to be hidden and allowing for a whole lot of leg to be on display easily. This look would exude sensual glamour especially if styled with old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, thick winged eyeliner, bold red lips, silver Rene Caovilla ‘Celebrita’ crystal embellished satin ankle strap platform sandals, and then a selection of dazzling Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including a pair of statement emerald cut emerald drop earrings and a beautiful white diamond and emerald floral bracelet. Now this wish may surprise some people. When it comes to major red carpets we have come to expect Dakota Johnson to wear Gucci on the red carpet as she is the face of one of the brands fragrances. I do expect that we will see Dakota wearing some sort of custom gown from Gucci. That being said, as I was picking gowns for this red carpet I thought putting Dakota in some skin tight Saint Laurent PVC would be the perfect idea for her to bring to life on this red carpet. This black Saint Laurent Fall 2020 RTW calf length dress which features thin straps, a sweetheart neckline, and a flared hem is super classic in its design, but it is made modern with the PVC fabrication. Now I would customize the look by lengthening the hem to skim the floor, adding a train, and then having it customized in the wine colored PVC that was used in another look from this same collection. To make this look 100% perfect I would finish the look with a sleek side parted updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of gold Saint Laurent metallic leather platform ankle strap sandals, and a super statement vintage 18k gold set Bulgari High Jewelry from 1965 made up pf amethysts, emeralds, turquoises, and white diamonds to really ensure that Dakota delivers a sexy, modern take on classic glamour on the Met Gala red carpet. In the case of including H.E.R. in my wishes for the 2020 Met Gala it was definitely a case of the gown choosing the wearer. I first learned who H.E.R. was at the amfAR Gala at the Cannes Film Festival last year when she walked the red carpet announcing the Giambattista Valli x H&M collaboration wearing one of the looks from the early release of the collection. Since then I have loved watching her on the red carpet. She always brings edge and soul to the red carpet. So I was thinking of who would be the perfect person to bring this cherry red chiffon and watermelon pink silk taffeta Giambattista Valli Spring 2020 Couture strapless gown which features a goddess draped gown and a dramatic bow detailed cape I knew that it fit perfectly with H.E.R.’s sense of style. I really do think that she would really be able to make this super dramatic and statement making moment come to life on the Met Gala red carpet with effortless ease especially if styled with a big curly updo, defined eyes behind pink round sunglasses (one of her signatures), bold red lips, a pair of red velvet Giuseppe Zanotti platform chunky heel sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection ‘Good Luck Charm’ ruby tassel drop earrings. Pop Diva Kim Petras has never attended a Met Gala but I feel like her cult following just might allow her to gain an invite to this years Met Gala. I decided to include her in these wishes when I was looking at some super Jean Paul Gaultier Couture moments I want to see on this red carpet. When I was trying to think of the perfect person to bring this nude pink Jean Paul Gaultier Spring 2020 Couture ball gown which is lingerie inspired with a high low tiered tulle hoop skirt I thought of Kim and couldn’t shake the idea of her wearing this gown from my head and now here we are. Given the fact that Gaultier has announced that he is retiring and that this was his final collection I will be really interested in seeing who the label puts on the Met Gala red carpet, if anyone. Gaultier has dressed everyone from established stars like Madonna and Alicia Keys to more up and coming stars like Charli XCX and Madelaine Petsch on the Met Gala red carpet so imagining the label taking Kim Petras is definitely not out of the realm of possibility. This look would be super cool with a sleek high bun updo with bangs, thick winged eyes, soft nude lips, a pair of dazzling champagne crystal mesh Rene Caovilla ‘Galaxia’ peep toe bootie sandals, and a pop of color via Anabela Chan ‘Pink Feather’ cocktail earrings in 18k gold and black gold vermeil with hand-set laboratory-grown synthesised and simulated gemstones including two stunning solitaire pear-cut pink tourmalines and 216 pavé-set sapphires, diamonds and amethysts.  Naomi Watts is no stranger to the Met Gala red carpet. Over the years we have seen Naomi grace the famed Met steps wearing looks from a bevy of different labels including Michael Kors, Burberry, Givenchy Couture, Mugler, and Stella McCartney. The theme ‘About Time’ is right up her alley. Naomi delvers old Hollywood glamour on the red carpet with ease and I definitely want to see her bring it to this years Met red carpet. I think that she would do it with great aplomb wearing this midnight blue and red Armani Prive Spring 2020 Couture strapless a-line gown which features a fully beaded bodice, a beaded watercolor pattern layered tulle skirt, and a sweeping train. This gown is definitely a signature look from Armani Prive and I feel like with the right styling that this has the potential to be one of the best looks of the night. A sleek vintage inspired updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a midnight blue Judith Leiber Couture ‘Galaxy Crescent Moon’ tasseled crystal embellished minaudiere, a pair of midnight blue crystal embellished Gianvito Rossi ankle strap sandals, and simple yet dazzling Bulgari sapphire and white diamond drop earrings would definitely make this a major glam moment for Naomi. Closing out today’s wishes is the gorgeous Uma Thurman. I was able to watch the Marc Jacobs Fall 2020 RTW show live from the comfort of my bed in my fuzzy jammies. When I saw this salmon pink silk faille ensemble which consists of a dramatic opera coat which features wide lapels, three quarter length sleeves and a sweeping train and a matching empire waist a-line gown which features a rounded neckline, thin straps, and a small bow detail come down the runway I knew immediately it would be a perfect Met Gala moment and I know that Uma Thurman could really sell this 60’s inspired fashion moment to me. The look is very much inspired by the 60’s heyday of Cristobal Balenciaga. It shows how his legacy has endured the test of time and to me that fits the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” perfectly. For the Met Gala red carpet I would go full 60’s with the styling with a sleek bun updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of matching salmon pink Roger Vivier sculpted heel pointed toe pumps, and a coral bead Chopard Red Carpet Collection strand necklace with those coral bead encased in a delicate cage of white diamonds and rubellites. I know this would all ensure that Uma OWNS this red carpet.
