Today’s Met Gala wish list is all about firsts. I think that the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” is perfect for firsts. Timelines have to start somewhere. In each of my wishes today I am going to feature a first to come to the Met Gala red carpet. Most of the wishes are for new stars to receive their first invitation to walk those famed red carpeted steps, but there are also a couple of wishes for new labels to be featured on the Met Gala red carpet. I am hoping that lots of major beginnings happen on this years red carpet. So why don’t we get right on into the wishes shall we? I am always ready for a great couples moment on the red carpet. This year I would love to see Dylan Sprouse & Barbara Palvin make their Met Gala red carpet debut, both as a couple and as individuals. Last year it was all about Dylan’s twin brother Cole and his former girlfriend Lili Reinheart and now I am hoping that Dyan and Barbara will get their turn. I was looking at menswear and definitely wanted to see this black Balmain Pre-Fall 2020 crystal embellished skinny shawl lapel button-less tiger print tuxedo jacket to see on the red carpet and I immediately thought of Dylan. I don’t know what it was about the jacket that screamed Dylan to me since he has never worn Balmain before, but I would love to see him make this classic yet extra and fun moment perfect for the Met Gala red carpet with a crisp white button up buttoned all the up, without a tie, a pair of skinny tuxedo pants, a satin cummerbund, and a pair of black suede Balmain ‘Karen’ silver cap toe ankle boots. Now for Dylan’s former Victoria’s Secret Angel supermodel girlfriend Barbara Palvin. She is a face of Armani Beauty so when I was trying to think of the perfect person to wear this black Armani Prive Fall 2016 Couture gown which features a sheer long sleeve bodice with beaded “pockets” on the breasts, a poufy peplum, and a flared velvet skirt with a long train It just clicked as a great moment for her. Now the sheerness of the top could pose a problem. I don’t really want to see boobs on the red carpet so trying to figure it out could include a black velvet bustier underneath, a black bra (another option I really don’t want to see), or a strapless bustier specifically made to match Barbara’s skin tone perfectly. The nude bustier is probably my favorite option. Old Hollywood waves, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, a pair of black leather Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of white diamond Djula jewels up one ear would definitely make this look come to life on the red carpet. Both of these looks would compliment each other extremely well and make for a major moment for these two to rock for their first Met Gala red carpet. It has been a while since I have really loved the look that Karlie Kloss has worn on the Met Gala red carpet. Honestly I’m not the biggest fan when it comes to the looks Karlie decides to wear on the red carpet. I decided that for this year’s Met Gala that Karlie would be the perfect choice to give New York City based label Marina Moscone designed by sisters Marina and Francesca Moscone its first Met Gala red carpet moment. The label has had great moments at the BAFTA Awards on Zazie Beetz and at the Vanity Fair Oscar Party on Martha Hunt, and I feel like they are ready for their first Met Gala. I LOVE this cream Marina Moscone Fall 2020 RTW silk-blend gown which features a partially lined relaxed fit, shift silhouette, leopard print, floor length fringe throughout, a rounded neckline, and long sleeves. It was definitely one of my favorite stand out moments to come out of New York Fashion Week and I think that it gives nods to several eras in fashion. There’s 20s, 60’s, 70’s, and 90’s inspiration in this look and I really want to see Karlie bring this look to life in the perfect way on the red carpet. I think that this gown styled with a romantic updo, defined eyes, dark cherry red lips, simple cream nappa leather Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist’ ankle strap sandals, and a pair of dazzling rose gold set Messika High Jewelry ‘Diamond Catcher’ feather inspired white diamond drop earrings would definitely ensure that Karlie makes sure that Marina Moscone has a major moment for their Met Gala debut. Meryl Streep is going to make her Met Gala debut this year as she is one of the co-chairs of this years event alongside Anna Wintour, Emma Stone, Lin Manuel Miranda, and Nicholas Ghesquiere. It is shocking to think that the queen of cinema has never attended a Met Gala before, but it is true. I would imagine that Meryl will most likely wear a custom Louis Vuitton design, especially since her stylist Micaela Erlanger works very closely with the house, but I looked at the latest runway show and I just didn’t imagine Meryl wearing any of the looks. So I went back to the drawing board. I had saved almost 700 looks to consider for stars to bring to life on this red carpet, so I went searching for a look that screamed Meryl. When I saw this champagne sequin and crystal embellished Celine Fall 2020 RTW long sleeve 70’s inspired peasant dress and thought it would be the great base for a super custom gown for Meryl to wear on this red carpet. Lengthen the skirt to hit the floor and add a sweeping train would definitely make this a major moment on the red carpet. Now Celine creative director Heidi Slimane is known for his super skinny size 0 models. Meryl has curves so I don’t know if he would create a custom gown for her, but he should. I can imagine how major of a moment this could be and it would be a shame for it not to happen. A chic updo, defined eyes, punchy pink lips, a gold Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ mirrored stingray leather clutch, a pair of gold Roger Vivier ‘Flower Strass Buckle’ pointed toe pumps, and a selection of vintage Bulgari jewels including white diamond framed emerald cut emerald stud earrings and an 18k gold set white diamond and emerald coil ring worn on her index finger would all make sure this look just oozes effortless bohemian glamour from head to toe for Meryl’s first time walking the famed Met steps. Olivia Culpo has also never walked a Met Gala red carpet. It honestly depends on the moment on whether or not I even think she should. I was looking that this black Roberto Cavalli Pre-Fall 2020 strapless a-line dress which features a strapless velvet bustier bodice and intricate art deco inspired gold beading thinking about bow it would be amazing customized into a floor length gown. That custom gown definitely speaks to the theme of this years gala. I was racking my brain for the perfect person to bring the gown to life on the red carpet and I got the thought of Olivia wearing the gown and it was a great idea. The look screams glamour and I imagine that with old Hollywood waves, smokey eyes, red lips, a black crocodile pattern stamped satin Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch, a pair of two tone bronze and gold Sophia Webster ‘Nicole’ ankle strap sandals, and a statement 18k gold Buccellati ‘Serendib’ white diamond and black sapphire collar necklace that this look would be glamour defined from head to toe. Yara Shahidi is one of my favorite red carpet stars, but I just haven’t loved any of her past Met Gala moments. I really want to see Yara bring the drama to this years red carpet. I decided to pick Yara to be the first celebrity to bring Christopher John Rogers to life on the Met Gala red carpet. The designer won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund prize last year and I can imagine that he will be bringing the drama to this years red carpet. The Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW collection was full of major moments that could be major moments on this years red carpet. This emerald green silk cap sleeve ballgown has a dramatic skirt with a major tulle crinoline underneath is different than anything Yara has worn before. It honestly could skew a little old. I want to see Yara rock this gown perfectly fit to her torso, perfectly steamed with a teased afro bun, defined eyes, ruby red lips, a pair of black and green Gucci ‘Crawford’ knotted metallic leather platform sandals, and a statement Bulgari High Jewelry ‘Cinemagia’ collar necklace set in pink gold with amethysts, tourmalines, moonstones, emerald beads, and white diamonds to really make sure that Yara gives Christopher the first major Met Gala moment his label deserves.
