2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 26

The inspiration for the 5 looks in today’s wishes spans a whole gambit from the 18th century pannier to 60’s high society to Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball. Honestly where inspiration can be drawn from for the 2020 Met Gala with the theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” is almost endless. The exhibition spans the fashion over the last 150 years. That leaves a lot room for interpretation. While I think timeless glamour is what we are most likely going to see dominate on the Met Gala red carpet I think the looks in this set of wishes are great options to really showcase the range of looks we could see.Looking into the history of Iris Van Herpen designs on the Met Gala red carpet it seems like we have just seen the label worn 3 times. Liu Wen wore the label in 2016, Solange Knowles wore the label in 2018, and Jordan Roth wore the label last year. The dress worn by Solange is actually in this years exhibition, so I would imagine that the designer will be featured on this red carpet as well. While the label has only dressed one star per carpet in the past I’ve picked two very different looks for two very different stars to wear on this years red carpet. We’ve already seen my pick for Danai Gurira wearing the label on the red carpet, so now let’s discuss the gown I want to see Cara Delevingne bring to life. Iris van Herpen is a Dutch fashion designer who is widely recognized as one of fashion’s most talented and forward-thinking creators who continuously pushes the boundaries of fashion design. For Cara I would love to see her wearing this bone cream and black Iris van Herpen Spring 2020 halter gown which features intricate threading and jutting pannier inspired hips. This collection draws inspiration from the sensory processes that occur between the intricate composition of the human body, mirrored with the fibrous marine ecology of our oceans. Honestly to me this gown does the 18th century style in such a new, futuristic way I feel like Cara is one of the few who could really bring this look to life on a red carpet. Cara has sold many Iris Van Herpen moments to me on the red carpet and I do believe that she would sell this look to me with ease. Styling this gown in a super sleek manner pairing it with a sleek high pony tail, smokey eyes, Chanel Rogue Allure Velvet Extreme Intense Matte Lip Colour in ‘Modern’, a pair of simple black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ ankle strap sandals, and a bit of sparkle via Sutra ‘Signature’ collection palm burst cluster earrings in 18k blackened gold and diamonds would enure that Cara owns this look on the Met Gala red carpet. Greta Gerwig attended the Met Gala 4 times. Twice wearing looks I loved and twice wearing looks I loathed. For this years red carpet I decided to go to a label we haven’t really seen in a major manner at the Met in a past: Lela Rose. I have always loved chic feminine moments that Lela has created and feel like this year’s theme would be the perfect time for her to finally have a major moment. Greta’s stylist Cristina Ehrlich has been known to try out designers who haven’t gotten Met Gala moments and has been a huge fun of Lela Rose. She has put Greta in many Lela Rose creations over the years so when I was starting to think of who should wear this platinum metallic jacquard Lela Rose Fall 2020 RTW asymmetric gown which features an off the shoulder, draped waist, a-line skirt, and a side drape Greta immediately popped into my mind. This super 50’s/60’s high society glam is something I imagine being a perfect for this years red carpet. I would want to see that side drape extended into a major train moment to really make sure this gown is dramatic enough for the Met Gala red carpet. The gown would be perfectly styled with a sleek center parted beehive style, defined eyes, dark red lips, a champagne satin Judith Leiber Couture ‘Soho’ coffered crystal clasp clutch, a pair of beige satin Roger Vivier ‘Flower Strass Buckle’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and Irene Neuwirth one of a kind opal drop earrings. It would definitely make for a major moment for Greta to bring to life on the Met Gala red carpet. I feel like it has been a really long time since we have seen an Armani Prive moment on the Met Gala red carpet. I feel like that has to change this year, hence my three wishes to see the brand on this years red carpet. This is my final Armani Prive for this years red carpet. I have been obsessed with this black liquid sequin Armani Prive Spring 2019 Couture strapless jumpsuit which features a plunging v-neckline, beaded fringe details on the neckline and on hip pockets, and flared cuffs on the ankle length pants since this collection was first presented last January. I have made several wishes to see this look brought to life on the red carpet, but none of them really worked for me for the Met Gala. Instead I thought it would be a major moment for Kerry Washington to deliver on this years red carpet. She has been shunning the typical gown a lot this year in favor for bold sexy moments. I really do believe that while I typically believe that gowns are needed for the Met Gala that this look would be able to hold it’s own against some of the more dramatic gowns. Making this look super sleek and sexy with a sleek center parted bob, smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Christian Louboutin ‘Antinorina’ crystal embellished strappy half d’Orsay pointed toe pumps, a selection of Nikos Koulis jewels including a pair of ‘Oui’ collection art deco drop earrings with pear shape and emerald cut rubies, pear shape, oval and emerald cut white diamonds and black enamel, a ‘Oui’ collection geometric bracelet with rubies, white diamonds and black enamel, and a ‘Oui’ collection wave bracelet with rubies, white diamonds and black enamel would definitely make this a major moment. Inspired by Truman Capote’s 1966 Black and White Ball, the glamorous Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW  collection twinkled against the stunning backdrop of the New York Public Library. The collection delivered superb moments that I feel we will undoubtedly see a couple of moments from the label on the red carpet at this years Met Gala. This beautiful strapless silver Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW bead embellished tulle bone structured ballgown is definitely perfect for this years Met Gala and I have been thinking that this gown would be perfectly brought to life by Lily Aldridge. The supermodel has been wearing a lot of vintage looks lately, but I feel like she would be the perfect person to bring this gown to life at the Met. She knows how to deliver sensual drama on the red carpet and that is exactly what this gown is. As I was looking back at Lily’s past Met Gala red carpet looks I realized that I have never been wowed by her on the Met steps. I think this gown has potential to be her best Met moment ever especially if styled with sleek high bun updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Spikaqueen’ iridescent pointed toe PVC crystal embellished ankle strap pumps, and a statement white diamond Bulgari ‘Giardini Italiani’ leaf collar necklace. Honestly I am shocked that when I looked up who Cushnie had dressed for past red carpets I could only find one look; La La Anthony in 2014. This is is one of the more underrated labels out there in my opinion. Carly Cushnie delivers super glamorous and sexy moments in every collection and I would love to see her dress a major star for this years red carpet. I want to see Cushnie dress Regina King for this years Met Gala in this lavender one shoulder gown which features an A-line silhouette, draped bodice, pleated panel on the skirt. Now like most runway or lookbook dresses I’ve featured in my 2020 Met Gala wishes I want to see Carly Cushnie create a custom version of this gown for Regina that takes the pleated panel and turns it into a dramatic train. The look screams glamour and I do think that getting a major star like Regina to wear the look on the Met Gala red carpet would ensure Cushnie gets the major fashion moment it deserves. Styling this look with a bold braided updo, deep purple smokey eyes, nude glossy lips, lilac glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Pattie’ peep toe platform ankle strap sandals, and a pair of major amethyst and white diamond Boucheron ‘Animeaux’ winged pendant drop earrings would finish this look beautifully for Regina.
