2020 BET Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

Today we finish out my 2020 BET Awards wishes with three wishes for three stars with very different and distinct style. Had there been a major red carpet for the BET Awards I know that the three stars in today’s wishes would have definitely bring the drama and glamour to the red carpet. I am hoping that in the coming weeks and months we will start to get back to red carpet events, but until then I will continue to talk about what could have been. So let’s get into it. I love me some Billy Porter. The Queer actor brings the glamour to the red carpet. He takes risks and blurs the lines between menswear and womenswear. I am still imagining myself wearing the white Alex Vinash feathered tuxedo that Billy wore for the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year for my own wedding. So I turned to a designer who loves blurring the lines of gender, sexuality, and race: Prabal Gurung. As I was on the hunt for the perfect look for Billy to wear for the BET Awards I immediately fell in love with this white and black Prabal Gurung Fall 2020 RTW tailored tuxedo which features an asymmetrically color blocked jacket with a gold button detail and a pair of slouchy pintuck straight leg pants. I definitely think this look could be super effortless and majorly glamorous on Billy. It isn’t the big drama filled gowns or coats he tends to favor, but it gives us disco Saturday Night Fever elegance. Now I would want to see Billy really go for it with the styling adding a black Stefano Ricci crystal-tipped silk formal shirt worn with a button or two undone, a black feather embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Celeste’ crystal trimmed clutch, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Night on the Nile’ crystal embellished and velvet loafers, and a DRAMATIC Philip Treacy black and white wide brimmed fedora style hat. It would all make a major moment come to together perfectly. Cynthia Erivo delivered all kinds of major looks over the course of awards season. From big ball gowns or simpler silhouettes done perfectly I was ALWAYS looking forward to seeing what she was going to bring to the red carpet. So I wanted to make sure that I included a major moment for what I would have wanted to see Cynthia bring to life on the red carpet. Enter this red jersey Balenciaga Fall 2020 RTW draped gown which features gloved sleeves as thigh high split, and a sweeping train. I went back and forth on picking this look for Cynthia because I don’t think that she would be able to pull off the look with the matching tight boots that the look was styled with on the runway and I wasn’t sure I would have liked to see the gown without the boots. The more and more I thought about it I think that customizing the gown so it had a bodysuit so there could still be a lot of leg shown and styling the look with her signature bleach blonde shaved hairstyle, defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, a red crystal embellished Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ clutch, a pair of red stretch mesh Balenciaga pointed toe pumps, and statement David Webb geometric hoop ruby and white diamond drop earrings would definitely make this a major moment for Cynthia to bring to life. 16 year old actress Storm Reid has definitely made a name for her self in the world of high fashion. She opened the Miu Miu Fall 2020 RTW show back in March and has rocked red carpets around the world in some of the most coveted fashion brands including Coach, Iris Van Herpen, Viktor & Rolf, Simone Rocha, & Etro. I cannot wait to continue seeing what the future has in store for her. So I would love to see Storm give us cocktail drama wearing this black Balmain Fall 2020 RTW strapless ruffled crepe midi dress which features a cropped bustier bodice with a sweetheart neckline and a tulip shaped skirt. The look is sexy and glamorous yet incredibly age appropriate for Storm, especially with the right styling. A chic fishtail plaited braid, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of black suede Jimmy Choo ‘Anouk’ pointed toe pumps, and a statement Vhernier ‘Calla’ ebony and 18k rose gold link necklace would definitely have made this look a major glam fashion moment for Storm.
