2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

jnbkAlright after a couple days of 6 looks a day I am now on 5 looks per wish list per day until I finish. All in there will be over 170 wishes for this years Met Gala red carpet. That number isn’t crazy. The Met Gala sees about 500 guests from the worlds of film, television, music, fashion, politics, theater, society, sports, and more. So the possibilities are pretty endless. In the documentary The First Monday In May Baz Luhrmann said “You can have an acting icon next to a musical icon, next to a political icon. It’s like an giant aquarium on that night.” Its so true and is one of the many reasons I love this red carpet. It really is the only space where all of these worlds collide on the red carpet. This set of wishes is wide spread it has a top model of the moment, a super hero, a Broadway vocal powerhouse, a teen scene TV princess, and a fashion icon.  I will never forget watching the Versace Fall 2018 RTW collection and seeing Adut Akech walk on the livestream and really noticing her. She has presence which is what really draws me to her. Now she has become the muse to Valentino creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli, but after bring his Met Gala date two years in a row I decided that I wanted to see Adut branch out. I had originally pulled a photo of Adut when I was picking her to wear a Valentino look, but then I saw this sand Schiaparelli Spring 2020 Couture one shoulder column gown which features a dramatic sculpted shoulder and I knew it would be a killer moment for Adut to bring on this red carpet. Now the look was sand on the runway and I do think Adut could sell the gown to me exactly as it was presented, but I would absolutely DIE to see her wear a this gown custom made for her in the signature Schiaparelli “Shocking Pink.” The color would just burst off of Adut making for a superb stand out statement. Her signature short hair, defined eyes, dark burgundy red glossy lips, a pair of matching shocking pink Christian Louboutin ‘Araborda Strass’ crystal embellished sling back peep toe d’orsay sandals, and a selection of Chopard Red Carpet Collection jewels including a pair of rubellite and white diamond cluster earrings and a statement white diamond and rubellite heart shaped cocktail ring would definitely ensure that Adut shuts down the red carpet at the 2020 Met Gala. Chadwick Boseman is a man with real style. He loves some fashion and isn’t afraid to take a risk on the red carpet. I knew going into my Met Gala wishes I wanted to include menswear to show how even though I think that classic glamour is what we are going to mostly see on this red carpet that men can still have fun with fashion and deliver some real wow moments on the red carpet. One of my favorite labels to see Chadwick wear on the red carpet is Givenchy so when I was looking for the perfect person to wear this Givenchy Fall 2019 Couture ensemble which features an intricate silver sequin embroidered coat, a silver sequined t-shirt, and skinny cropped pants I knew it had to be Chadwick. He would be able to sell this look to me with effortless ease and a whole lot of swagger. The look itself is such a statement that there really doesn’t need to be a whole lot of styling. Personally I would just add a pair of black sequined Christian Louboutin ‘Jolly Flat’ low heel ankle boots to really pull this look together perfectly. Idina Menzel is definitely known more for her powerhouse vocals than she is for red red carpet fashion. The star of stage and screen is definitely not one of the first people I think of when I think of Met Gala fashion, but I do believe that she could very well be on the red carpet this year. Her last Met Gaga moment in 2014 at the Charles James themed gala from Donna Karan Atelier would be PERFECT for this years theme, but instead I went with a more moody art deco princess vibe for Idina with this strapless black J. Mendel Fall 2020 RTW strapless ballgown which features a bondage-inspired silhouette, boning at bodice, a full circle skirt, and a dramatic train. This look screams classic glamour with a hint of subtle sex appeal and I think that is exactly what Idina needs to have a really major moment on this red carpet. Styling is where I tend to look Idina when she does pick good looks. I would love to see her style this gown with a romantic updo (nothing too curly or severe though), defined eyes, bold red lips, a black Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ velvet crystal clasp clutch, black lace trimmed Jimmy Choo ‘Sacora’ peep toe suede sandals, and a selection of Kwiat jewels including a pair of white diamond and black onyx ‘Vintage’ drop earrings in 18k white gold and a statement white diamond ‘Trellis’ cuff bracket in 18k white gold to really deliver head to toe perfection.Madelaine Petsch made her Met Gala red carpet debut last year in fairy couture thanks to Jean Paul Gaultier. The Riverdale actress is definitely one of the more high fashion members of the cast and I hope we see her on the red carpet at this years gala. I was looking for the perfect person to wear this strawberry pink Moschino Fall 2020 RTW gown which features a sweetheart neckline bustier, asymmetrical tulle sleeves, and a draped and pleated taffeta tiered skirt and I thought of the gorgeous redheaded actress and magic was made in my mind. This Moschino collection was inspired by Marie Antoinette and the infamous quote attached to her name: “Let Them Eat Cake.” I really want to see Madelaine really run with the idea of a modern Marie Antoinette to make this look a MAJOR moment on the red carpet. I would modify this gown just a little to add a really long dramatic train finishing the look with sleek beehive updo, thick winged eyes, dark dusty rose pink lips, a white and gold Judith Leiber Couture ‘Tall Slender Rectangle Garlands’ pink floral pattern clutch, a pair of fuchsia pink Jimmy Choo ‘Kate’ crystal embellished bow detail strappy sandals, and dazzling Anabela Chan ‘Fuchsia Sapphire Chandelier’ earrings set in 18k rose gold vermeil, with 18k gold earring posts, hand set with an array of laboratory-grown synthesized and simulated gemstones including pear-cut citrines and 3 fuchsia pink sapphire drops, with round brilliant cut white diamonds and pale pink sapphires.The final person in today’s wishes is a Met Gala and style icon. Sarah Jessica Parker has really become a style icon thanks to her iconic role as the most iconic New Yorker Carrie Bradshaw. While the character has been left to the annals of television and movie history she lives on in Sarah Jessica Parker’s everyday persona. I am really excited to see what SJP might be cooking up for this years gala after skipping the “Camp” themed gala last year. I can imagine that Sarah would definitely bring the drama on the red carpet at this years gala with the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration.” I decided to go with classic feminine elegance for SJP picking this ivory and black Carolina Herrera Fall 2020 RTW gown which features a solid black off the shoulder bodice with an empire waist and long sleeves and a full a-line skirt embroidered with a sketch of roses. As I was watching this show this was the first look I saw that really fell right into this years theme. A big dramatic updo (something SJP knows how to do), smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black ‘Carrie’ pointed toe strappy t-bar pumps from her own SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker shoe line, and a selection of layered antique necklaces from Fred Leighton including a green paste rivière, a pink topaz rivière, and a diamond and emerald drop necklace would all make sure that SJP truly meets the high expectations that she has set for her Met Gala moments.
