“The Old Guard” Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

I have to say that I am really disappointed that The Old Guard isn’t going to have a red carpet premiere. This film is a superhero flick directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood, based on the comic book of the same name. With a cast that includes Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Matthias Schoenaerts, Marwan Kenzari, Luca Marinelli, and Chiwetel Ejiofor I would have definitely wanted to see a red carpet to celebrate the films release. The story focuses on a pack of mercenaries who are all centuries-old immortals able to heal from any wound. Just as they find another immortal has “awakened”, they realize someone is onto their secret and have to fight for their freedom. The Old Guard is scheduled to be released on July 10, 2020, by Netflix. So today I am putting out wishes for what could have been had the film had a big red carpet premiere. Over the course of awards season Charlize Theron let me down over and over again until her sleek and sexy custom black gown at the Oscars. I always want the most from Charlize on the red carpet be it a big gown or an intricate cocktail moment. So I decided that since I really wasn’t a fan of anything Maria Grazia Chiuri has created lately for Charlize that I was going to dig deep into the Christian Dior Couture archives. I found this forest green and black asymmetrically origami draped cap sleeve midi dress from the Christian Dior by Gianfranco Ferre Spring 1996 Couture collection. The look definitely brings the edgy glamour to the red carpet. I would love to see Charlize bring this glamorous moment out of the Dior archives and give it a major moment on the red carpet. Just like Charlize this gown balances hard lines and soft frills. I fee like for a Netflix movie premiere that this look would be perfection especially if styled with a pair of black lace up detail patent leather Gianvito Rossi ankle strap sandals, defined eyes, red lips, a side parted pixie cut, and vintage Harry Winston 18k gold set white diamond cluster earrings. I am really bummed that we won’t get to see Kiki Layne bring her signature high glamour to the red carpet to promote this film. I’ve been in love with Kiki and her style since she first burst onto the scene wearing Gucci for the Toronto Film Festival premiere of If Beale Street Could Talk. I would have loved to see her bring effortless high glam to this red carpet with this canary yellow silk charmuse Prabal Gurung Pre-Fall 2020 one shoulder bias cut gown which features a dramatic ruffle on the shoulder and a sweeping train. I know that with Kiki’s banging body that she would definitely have brought this look come to life. I definitely think that had she had the opportunity to bring this gown to life with a big bun updo, defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of light gold glitter Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind 100’ three strap stiletto sandals, and a selection of Anabela Chan jewels including ‘Diamond Pearl Raindrop’ chandelier earrings and ‘Constellation Pearl and Diamond’ cuff bracelet that this could have been a Best Dressed of the Year worthy moment.
