2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 10

The 2019 Met Gala gave us “Camp,” a seemingly endless stream of dramatic over the top moments. There was no lack of color, volume, sequins, crystals, feathers, and more on that red carpet. I was definitely a lot to take in. This years Met Gala theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” is bound to deliver the exact opposite. While “Camp” ensured everyone delivering huge fashion moments I believe that “About Time” will deliver a myriad of takes on classic glam. I am sure that we will see lots of looks that hearken back to the 20’s, 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s which can be acclaimed as the heyday of high glamour. From flappers to Jackie O I feel like the inspiration that can be taken for style that has endured the test of time is pretty endless, but one thing runs the gambit: Glamour.It has been a while since we have seen Amy Adams on the Met Gala red carpet. The last event she attended was the 2014 “Charles James” themed gala. With major projects expected to be released later this year that could have her finally seeing Oscar gold next awards season. So I really want to see her take advantage of any major red carpet she can to keep up appearances. I actually decided to go a bit of an unexpected route for Amy picking a designer we have never seen on the Met Gala red carpet: Ports 1961. I always check out the Ports show hoping for chic moments. When I saw this burgundy sequin and and red pleated silk midi dress which features thin straps and a gold chain link belt I immediately thought it would be a superb moment for Amy. Then I started thinking of how it would look without the black polka dotted tulle blouse from underneath and lengthening the skirt to hit the floor and adding a long train to make a super chic, unexpected moment for Amy to wear on the Met Gala red carpet. Finishing the look with old Hollywood waves worn over one shoulder, smokey eyes, nude lips, a gold metallic python leather Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, a pair of gold Christian Louboutin ‘Maia Labella’ crystal embellished mesh pointed toe strappy d’Orsay pumps, and vintage Cartier High Jewelry 18k gold set ruby and white diamond earclips would definitely make sure that Amy delivers the glamour on this red carpet. Diplo has been on the Met Gala red carpet many times over the last several years and I would expect him to walk the red carpet again this year. He was front row at the Louis Vuitton by Virgil Abloh Fall 2020 Menswear show back in January and I feel like that was the precursor to him wearing a look from the label on the Met Gala red carpet. I was watching this show live from my desk in my office I would love to see Diplo go a little left of what the typical menswear look is for the Met Gala. This petrol blue button down skirt, matching tie, and pants which features degrade beading from the collar down the sleeves, tie, and torso of the shirt caught my eye immediately and I believe that it would definitely be something that Diplo would be drawn to. Lately Diplo has been wearing a lot of cowboy hats so I would love to see him ask Virgil to create a custom beaded cowboy hat to match the look. Adding a pair of black leather Louis Vuitton ‘Vendome’ chelsea boots and a grey damier pattern Louis Vuitton ‘Neo Trunk’ belt with a large buckle would definitely make this a perfect look for Diplo to rock on the Met Gala red carpet. Jennifer Lopez has delivered major looks on the Met Gala red carpet. Her 2017 robins egg blue Valentino Couture ended up topping my Best Dressed of the Year list. She knows how to bring her signature sexy brand of glamour to whatever look she’s wearing. I was looking at the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW collection and the moment I saw this black and white feathered hem velvet gown which features a high neck, long sleeves, high low hem, and a dramatic train I knew it had to be a Met moment. In the same thought I also knew that it would be a killer moment on JLo. Now with all her spring ad campaigns (Coach, Versace, Guess) it is likely that if we see Jennifer on this red carpet that she would most likely be wearing a custom look from one of those labels. I would love to see her go for this gown which is a bit of an unexpected choice. The gown is made for this Met Gala red carpet and I just know that with her sensual sensibility that she would once again shut the red carpet down. A big dramatic bun updo, defined winged eyes, bold matte red lips, a black Oscar de la Renta crystal bow clasp satin clutch, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Degrastrass’ crystal embellished PVC pointed toe pumps, and dazzling white diamond Harry Winston ‘Cluster’ drop earrings would definitely make this a major moment for JLo. I decided to delve into the archives of different brands. Chanel spokesmodels are bound to be all over the Met Gala red carpet this year. Three of the four looks that Chanel sent to the Met last year came out of the archive. So I would love to see Chanel once again dive into the archives for the perfect looks for their ladies to wear on this red carpet this year. I think that speaks to the idea of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” perfectly. Let’s make the “old” new again. I while on my Chanel archive dive I found this red metallic lurex? one shoulder draped gown from the Chanel Fall 1992 Couture collection and I fell in love. Margot Robbie wore vintage Chanel for the Oscars and so it was an easy choice for me to want to see her once again delve into the archives to wear this one shoulder moment for the 2020 Met Gala. It almost gives me a bit of a Pretty Woman vibe, but I in a very modern way. I want to make sure that the look doesn’t read dated so styling is going to have to be really on point. A sleek updo, defined eyes, soft blush pink lips, red satin Aquazzura ‘Deneuve’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of white diamond Chanel Fine Jewelry ‘Cascade’ drop earrings would definitely make this look come to life perfectly. My final look in this set of wishes is for the beautiful Selena Gomez. It has been a really long time since I have even really liked something Selena has worn on the Met red carpet, and honestly I have never loved one of her looks. I also delved into archives for Selena picking this ice blue draped yet structured Atelier Versace Spring 1995 Couture gown which features a signature pointed bustier neckline and a really sexy thigh high split. This gown is superb. Now honestly I decided to pick this gown more as inspiration for a custom look basically remaking this iconic Versace style, but adding a really long train to the look. Now this is definitely more of an out there idea for Selena to wear on the Met red carpet since she is a friend of Louis Vuitton and they are sponsoring this years gala I would automatically assume that she will most likely wear LV on this red carpet, but I really want to see this Atelier Versace moment come to life. Styling this look with a sleek center parted bob, defined eyes, bright pink lips, silver Jimmy Choo ‘Lilah’ metallic leather strappy sandals, and a selection of Messika High Jewelry white diamonds including a pair of ‘Etoile Polaire’ stud earrings, a statement ‘Calyx’ geometric collar necklace, and a modern art deco inspired ‘Shirin’ cuff bracelet would finish this look to absolute perfection making for Selena’s best red carpet moment ever.
