2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 27

This years Met Gala is still postponed with no reschedule date the the books. I am really excited for this years event and am ready to know when it is going to be rescheduled for. The theme of “About Time: Fashion and Duration” is going to deliver some super major moments on the Met steps and I cannot wait. The five looks in today’s wishes are a mix of long shots and expected moments, but all of them fit the DNA of the brands they come from and this years theme perfectly. I know they would make major moments on this years red carpet, and the styling I’ve picked to go with them just makes them even more perfect. Cardi B shut down the red carpet at her first Met Gala last year giving us edgy uterus quilted drama from Thom Browne. I knew she was going to bring the drama and she did. This year I decided to go for something a lot more subdued than that moment. I would love to see her give the David Koma label it’s first major Met Gala red carpet moment. Now Koma had a couple of simple moments on the Met red carpet back when he was the creative director of Mugler, but never as the David Koma label. I was looking at his Fall 2020 RTW collection when I saw this black velvet white and green crystal embellished velvet off the shoulder mini dress which features a curved neckline and sleeve and knew it would be a super glam moment for this years Met Gala red carpet. The look definitely makes sure that the David Koma label has its first major Met Gala red carpet moment. Now I would love to see this gown lengthened into a column gown for Cardi to really have a super glamorous moment for the Met Gala. Now while the gown might be simple in silhouette the embellishments and structure on the bodice add the right amount of drama to this look. I would up the drama level even more with the styling pairing this gown with a big bun updo, smokey winged eyes, ruby red glossy lips, a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Max 150’ peep toe platform sandals, and a lot of jewels from Gismondi 1754 including a pair of white diamond and emerald ‘Rugiada’ drop earrings, a statement white diamond and emerald ‘Rugiada’ lace choker necklace, a ‘Rugiada’ white diamond and emerald lace cuff bracelet, and a statement emerald cut emerald and white diamond cocktail ring. After the 2012 Met Gala Gwyneth Paltrow said she would never attend again, calling the event “totally un-fun.” Well then she’s been twice since then as the guest of Calvin Klein 205W39NYC and Chloe. Well I don’t know why but I feel like she just might be on the red carpet again this year. Now that being said I have HATED every single thing that Gwynie has worn on a red carpet this year. It seems like she is trying to hard to hold onto her “fun.” I want to see Gwyneth ooze sophistication on this years red carpet. I have been thinking about Gwyneth wearing this nude liquid sequin Valentino Spring 2020 Couture long sleeve gown which features a diamond cutout back detailed with black satin bows and a sweeping train since it was first presented back in January. The gown is modern glamour defined and I believe that Gwyneth would be able to bring this look to life on the red carpet. A sleek updo so that the back of the gown will be on full display, defined eyes, soft rose pink lips, a pair of nude Aquazzura ‘So Nude’ slingback sandals, and statement Cartier High Jewelry ‘Sorelli’ rutilated quartz and white diamond drop earrings all would make sure that this is Gwyneth’s best red carpet moment in years. Lily Collins always knows how to handle a theme on the Met Gala red carpet. She has been amongst my favorites the last three years and I am excited to see her own the red carpet this year. I decided to go left of the expected labels for Lily because she was the perfect fit to wear this sage green tulle Azzi & Osta Fall 2019 Couture strapless ballgown which features a sculpted rose peplum bodice. This is a collection that traverses between vintage allure and modern glamour, paying tribute to the golden age of couture of the 1950s. The history of haute couture is intrinsically linked with the history of photography, and it is the work of Irving Penn that provided the inspiration for an absolutely stunning couture collection from Azzi & Osta. With inspiration like that this collection embodies the theme of this years Met Gala. Giving this gown the full 50’s treatment with a sleek beehive updo, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of mint green satin Manolo Blahnik ‘Skyroj’ crystal embellished blue pointed toe pumps, and vintage peridot, yellow sapphire, and white diamond pendant drop cluster earrings would definitely make this a major moment for Lily to bring to life on this years Met Gala red carpet. Over the years Joseph Altuzarra has designed a number of custom gowns for the Met Gala red carpet. So I am always looking at his fall collections to find the perfect look for him to customize for a lucky starlet. As I was watching the Altuzarra Fall 2020 RTW collection presentation I fell in love with this silver crinkled velvet skirt suit which features a blazer with an off the shoulder portrait neckline and peak lapels as well as a pencil skirt with a serious thigh high split. The first person to pop into my head was Best Actress Oscar winner Renee Zellweger. This look as presented is definitely right up Renee’s little box of style. Now that being said I would create a custom gown for Renee to wear on this red carpet so there is no blazer lines down the tummy or on the hips. The silhouette of a column gown is exactly what Renee wore all awards season long and I wouldn’t expect to see her deviate from that if she were to step onto her first Met Gala red carpet in seven years. Keeping the styling relatively expected for Renee with a simple center parted low bun, defined eyes, soft pink lips, the blue leather belt the runway look was styled with on the runway, a pair of silver Jimmy Choo ‘Teja’ crystal embellished pointed toe d’orsay pointed toe pumps, and then adding a bit of a statement via a David Webb ‘Dinner Roll’ collar necklace made in carved rock crystal, brilliant-cut diamonds, 18K white gold, and platinum would definitely make this a major moment for Renee to wear on the Met Gala red carpet. When it comes to style I do not typically laud Sofia Coppola. She is quite mundane and bland when it comes to her sartorial choices. I would however love to see her walk this years Met Gala red carpet as a guest of Marc Jacobs. Sofia and Marc have been friends for a really long time so when I was trying to think of someone who could wear this superb black silk satin rode caged off the shoulder midi dress from the Marc Jacobs Fall 2020 RTW collection I thought it was a perfect match. This look is definitely a chic moment, simplistic which is in line with Sophia’s sense of style, but is enough to make a look for her interesting. The classic look is perfect for Sophia and I would love to see her style it with a romantic updo, thick defined eyes, dark rose pink lips, a black satin Roger Vivier ‘Mini RV’ floral crystal embellished buckle clutch, a pair of black Roger Vivier ‘I Love Vivier’ pointed toe pumps custom made in satin instead of leather, and vintage Cartier white diamond ribbon ear clips with white pearl pendant drops.
