2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 8

I really need to stop myself from adding even more more parts to my 2020 Met Gala Wish Lists. Again last night I added another set of 5 wishes to my lineup. At this point I’ve picked looks for almost 185 stars and I just don’t think I can think of anyone else. So enjoy these! I have put a lot of thought into them. After I finish all now 36 parts in this series I will start a “What Could Have Been At Cannes” series featuring films we were expecting to see screened at this years festival. I have to say that part of me is super sad that these Met Wishes don’t really have the possibility of coming to life on the red carpeted steps of the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the rumored new date of the Met Gala and subsequent exhibition opening now set for mid-October. These might be my absolute favorite wishes I’ve ever done for a Met Gala. But as I mentioned at the start I didn’t want them to go to waste. So lets dive into the five looks I want to see brought to life on this red carpet? Alexander McQueen always delivers absolutely beautiful collections and what Sarah Burton sent down the runway earlier this month for the labels Fall 2020 RTW collection presentation was no different. I was enamored by her use of volume and embroidery. For a couple of years now I have said that  must be rolling in his grave knowing how commercialized his label has become. This season it seemed like Sarah toed, and sometime crossed, the line into more avant garde territory. The show closed with two major embroidered tulle moments that I feel were perfect for this years Met Gala as they really speak to the duration of the Alexander McQueen legacy. The moment I saw this nude tulle and red intricately embroidered buster high low ballgown come down the Alexander McQueen Fall 2020 RTW runway the thought of seeing Amanda Seyfried wearing it on the Met steps came into my mind. Now this is definitely a lot more volume than we are used to seeing from Amanda, but I definitely think that she has the effortless presence to really bring this gown to life on a red carpet. Now the dress itself is such a statement I would definitely keep styling real simple with a sleek updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of simple red suede Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ sandals, and a little bit of sparkle via a simple vintage Tiffany & Co. white diamond and ruby necklace which features a fringe of pear-shaped diamonds, mounted in platinum and 18k gold to deliver this look perfectly.If Deepika Padukone were to walk the red carpet at the 2020 Met Gala it would be her fourth year in a row. She has been the guest of Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung, and Zac Posen over the last three years. Her gowns have continued getting bigger and bigger. I want to see the Bollywood beauty bringing the drama to the Met steps. Now instead of one of the big labels that Deepika has become a darling of like Louis Vuitton (she modeled in the brands Pre-Fall 2020 lookbook and given the fact the fashion house is sponsoring this years event and exhibition it wouldn’t surprise me to see Deepika as a guest of the house) but instead I went to the designer who had her topping my 2018 Best Dressed of the Year list: Ashi Studio. The label has never had a Met Gala moment, but this coral silk faille sleeveless ball gown with matching big bow opera gloves from the Ashi Studio Fall 2019 Couture collection fits this years theme perfectly. I really do believe that Deepika would easily be able to sell this look to me on the red carpet. A sleek bun updo, dramatic coral smokey eyes, matte nude lips, a pair of coral patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Jonatina’ PVC strap sandals, and statement Chopard Loves Rihanna Red Carpet Collection ‘Carnival’ bright multicolored gemstone chandelier earrings an this would be a really bright spot on a red carpet I feel will be consumed with black and white looks. Janet Mock made her Met Gala debut last year wearing a mirror and feather embellished Alberta Ferretti gown. The actress is gorgeous and I really want to see her bring this major canary yellow Carolina Herrera Fall 2020 RTW tiered cape ball gown with a belted waist to life on the Met Gala red carpet. It is the perfect meshing of the legacy that Mrs. Herrera herself built for the house and that Wes Gordon has continued with his spin. She sat the front row at the Carolina Herrera Spring 2020 RTW and that is what prompted me to pick Janet to wear this gown. Like I said about Deepika I think that while black and white will be the color of the night, this gown would definitely be a bold color statement to bring to the Met Gala red carpet. Styling the look with a romantic updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of bright yellow Aquazzura ‘Very Vera’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and Amwaj white and yellow diamond cluster drop earrings would definitely ensure that Janet brings the drama to the Met Gala red carpet. American singer songwriter Maggie Rogers has become a bit of the unexpected fashionista. She was dressed by Chanel for her first Grammy’s. She has also been dressed by Prada, Gucci, and Stella McCartney for other red carpets. Most recently she was seen front row at the Valentino Fall 2020 RTW show wearing a feather cuff pyjama inspired co-ord. It was that fact that had me including her in my wishes for the 2020 Met Gala. I wanted to pick this midnight blue Valentino Fall 2020 Menswear double breasted liquid sequin loose fit suit for a gentleman, but as I was searching for the perfect people to bring Valentino looks to life on the red carpet I had the thought of seeing Maggie in this suit. I while it isn’t the big dramatic gowns that started this list I definitely think that this look would mesh Maggie’s laid back yet extra sense of style and dramatic dazzle for the Met Gala red carpet. Her full beachy waves, defined eyes, bold matte red lips, a black Valentino ‘VCASE’ crystal logo leather clutch, a pair of black and silver brocade Jimmy Choo ‘Cruz’ lace-up booties, and a selection of Anita Ko diamonds including double row marquise diamond floating earrings and a small diamond chain link choker would definitely make this look perfect for Maggie. Over the years Sienna Miller has been dressed by everyone from Thakoon, Burberry, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Paco Rabanne, and Emilio Pucci over the years. I was looking for someone to wear a custom gown version of this black and red fully beaded Dries Van Noten Fall 2020 RTW long sleeve midi dress and when I thought of Sienna wearing the gown I definitely imagined something super chic. I’m not sure what the back of this gown looks like, but I would love to see Dries customize this dress to have a low v-back taking the beaded rose corsage off the choker the look was presented with on the runway and placing it at the base of the back. I would also want to see the gown have a little bit of a sweeping train to really make sure the look is Met Gala red carpet ready. A sleek updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a rose pink satin Roger Vivier ‘Brochamour Envelop’ white and red crystal embellished buckle clutch, a pair of black satin Roger Vivier ‘Marlene’ strass ball detailed ankle strap sandals, and a pair of white diamond and ruby David Morris art deco inspired drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this Met Gala ensemble.
