2020 Met Gala Red Carpet Wish List Part 39

We have been through so many wish lists for this years Met Gala. I don’t know if or when this years event will take place, but I have enjoyed escaping from the reality going on around us and into this fantastical world of high fashion. Between today and tomorrows wishes I have some of my most fantastical wishes yet. I am closing out these wishes with a bunch of looks mostly pulled from or inspired by designer archives.  So let’s get into today’s wishes shall we? She’s no stranger to making a statement on the red carpet, but the Met Gala is one red carpet Angelina Jolie has never set foot on. Some of her previous red carpet moments could easily fit into this years exhibition and I really do think that if anyone could being the dramatic timeless glam to the Met Gala red carpet it would be Angelina. I went back to the Ralph & Russo runway debut Spring 2014 Couture and this gorgeous white gown which features a strapless neckline with a sheath silhouette, a side bustle detail which turns into a dramatic train, and black draped detail and intricate beading would be a major regal glam moment for Angie to bring to life on the red carpet at the 2020 Met Gala red carpet. This gown is perfect for this years theme and I really do believe that Angie is the perfect person to bring this gown out of the archive. A sleek updo, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white Christian Louboutin ‘Round and Square’ pointed toe asymmetrical strap patent leather pumps, and a selection of jewels from Graff including dazzling drop earrings made of 26.18 carats of diamonds and a 79.07 carat total weight cuff bracelet that features a very special 33.40 carat emerald cut diamond which forms a striking centerpiece among artfully arranged pear shape, marquise and round diamonds would definitely make this look regal perfection head to toe. Only two of the wishes in my last couple are from recent collections. This wish for the gorgeous Emilia Clarke is one of them. We’ve see the former Game of Thrones star walk the famous Met steps twice before. The first time was in 2013 wearing custom Alexander McQueen and then again in 2018 wearing Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda. Both gowns had very similar strapless cape train silhouettes. Neither was a favorite. So for this years red carpet I decided to turn to British designer Roland Mouret for Emilia. I changed my mind at the last minute from an archive ball gown from the designers Fall 2005 RTW collection to customizing a gown from the Roland Mouret Spring 2021 Bridal collection that was just presented. Roland Mouret attends the gala from time to time usually dressing one muse for the red carpet and I feel like Emilia is the perfect person to bring the designer’s vision of glamour to life this year. I love how chic this draped sequin one shoulder column gown which features a side split is, but white isn’t the color I would like to see Emilia wearing on this years Met Gala red carpet. Instead I would like to see Roland Mouret custom make this gown in royal blue sequins adding a bit of a train to really deliver modern glamour on this red carpet. It would be brought together perfectly with a loose curly updo, navy smokey eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of electric blue Jimmy Choo ‘Lovella’ strappy platform ankle strap sandals, and simple yet dazzling white diamond and sapphire David Morris drop earrings. The other more recent gown I picked for the last of my Met Gala wishes is a beautiful Vera Wang gown from the labels Fall 2020 Bridal collection. I was also picking another archive look from Vera Wang for Hailee Steinfeld, but I was looking at it and it reminded me too much of the Prabal Gurung gown she wore for the Met two years ago. So I swapped it for the silk charmuse asymmetric bias gown which features crisscrossing back straps and a single cowl draped sleeve. This gown is the perfect meshing of 1930’s and 1990’s glamour and I really do believe that Hailee would rock it perfectly on this red carpet. Now I would customize this look just a little bit creating it in silver with black back straps and sleeve. It would really make sure that Hailee oozes glamour. Finishing the look with a sleek retro updo, smokey eyes, bold red lips, silver glitter Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen 120’ ankle strap stiletto sandals, and a pair of dazzling white diamond Lorraine Schwartz floral chandelier earrings would make sure that is exactly what happens. Kendall Jenner had one of my favorite looks on the red carpet at last years Met Gala with her dramatic orange feathered Atelier Versace gown. It was the first time I feel like Kendall has really nailed the theme of the gala. For this year’s red carpet I decided to dig into the Alaia archives. Her sister Kim Kardashian has been loving vintage for a while now, and I thought why not let Kendall get in on it by pulling this asymmetrical two piece ensemble from the Azzedine Alaia Fall 2001 RTW collection which features a mid rise asymmetrical top and a dramatic mermaid skirt with a train. The look definitely fits this years theme perfectly while staying true to the Alaia codes. I think that Kendall would deliver effortless glamour on the Met Gala red carpet wearing this ensemble with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, red lips, a pair of black Alaia mesh-trimmed suede platform sandals, and a selection of major dazzling Yeprem jewels including ‘Inside Out’ white diamond spiral wreath earrings & a white diamond and sapphire ‘Reign Supreme’ hand bracelet. The last look today is for a custom gown inspired by the Prada archives. I felt like the one Prada gown I picked for Saweetie to wear for the Met Gala wasn’t enough. So I was looking at old Prada collections to find the perfect inspiration for looks perfect for the Met Gala red carpet. I found this cream and gold bead embroidered 20’s inspired cocktail dress on the Prada Spring 2006 RTW runway and immediately thought of how it would be such a superb glamorous moment customized into a floor length gown with a sweeping train. It immediately made me think of Rachel Brosnahan who has rocked a good Prada look on the red carpet before and was seated front row at the Prada Fall 2020 RTW presentation. Rachel doesn’t do a whole lot of period inspired looks on the red carpet. I would imagine that spending as much time in her Mrs. Maisel wardrobe would do that, but I feel like this flapper glam moment would be absolutely beautiful on her. A loose romantic updo, smokey eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, a gold sequin Prada crystal clasp box clutch, a pair of gold satin and metal stud embellished Prada ankle strap sandals, and a selection of Tiffany & Co. jewels including archives-inspired scroll drop earrings with aquamarines, emeralds, and sage green enamel in 18 karat yellow gold and a statement ‘Schlumberger Fleurage Stitches’ cuff bracelet in platinum and 18k gold with a center round brilliant diamond of over three carats and round brilliant diamonds would definitely make this one major glam moment for Rachel to bring to life on the Met steps.
