“The Rental” Premiere Red Carpet Wish List

The Rental is an upcoming American horror/thriller about two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away. The film is the directorial debut from Dave Franco and stars his wife Alison Brie alongside Dan Stevens. This film has actually already had a premiere. It’s pandemic premiere happened at the Vineland Drive-In on June 18, 2020. The cast got a couple of shots out of masks and then socially distanced watching the film from their cars with a group of movie fans. It was definitely a novel idea for a movie premiere amidst Coronavirus. Next week the film is expected to be released on demand for home movie goers to enjoy. I appreciate IFC Films releasing a movie, even if it isn’t one I would plan on watching. I am definitely over movie released being pushed back. This far into the COVID-19 pandemic movie studios need to pivot and start releasing films so that not only we can enjoy them, but for them to make money. For now lets escape from reality together for a bit and fantasize about what could have been had there been a big red carpet premiere for The Rental. Kicking things off is a soft romantic moment for Alison Brie. I love seeing Alison on the red carpet. She is a bit of a style chameleon and isn’t afraid to take risks, but for this red carpet I would have gone much more classically feminine than avant garde moment with this blush Zimmermann Resort 2021 collection midi dress. I adore this soft elegant ‘The Lovestruck Garland’ midi dress which features a ruffled v-neckline, sheer long poet sleeves, and a banded hem. It screams effortless femininity and I really do think that it would have been a gorgeous moment for Alison to rock on this red carpet. I would ditch the belt as I feel it makes the look more daytime than cocktail. To make this look perfect for the red carpet I would love to have seen Alison style this dress with a loose romantic updo, soft defined eyes, pink lips, a pair of salmon pink Aquazzura ‘Temptation’ peep toe PVC paneled slingback pumps, and Brumani ‘Baobá’ collection teardrop earrings which are set in 18kt pink gold earring with white diamonds, rose quartz and rose pink tourmaline. I have to say first that I loved Dan Stevens in his press tour for Beauty and the Beast, then I watched Downton Abbey and got so used to him with more weight, and now he’s giving boundary pushing looks every time he steps out. So yes. I am disappointed that we aren’t going to see him on the red carpet promoting The Rental as we won’t get to see his major fashion moments. I was looking at the Fall 2020 Menswear collections and the moment I saw this black and grey speckled wool double breasted slim fit suit from Alexander McQueen I knew I had found the perfect look. It is classic in it’s cut but the color blocking is just boundary pushing enough for Dan. I would love to see him style this look with some major black calf skin leather Alexander McQueen silver metal heel lace up silver studded oxfords to add another level of extra to this look. Finishing out this list is Dave Franco. Dave is pretty classic when it comes to his looks on the red carpet, but there is always high glam features. Like last year at the Golden Globe Awards where his custom Saint Laurent tuxedo had a soft subtle brocade pattern embossed into the velvet. For the premiere of his directorial debut feature I went back to Saint Laurent picking this black ensemble from the brands Spring 2020 Menswear collection which features a peak lapel blazer which features ribbon satin piping, a black and silver metallic thread striped polo shirt, and black slim fit jeans. It is definitely more casual than one would expect me to pick for a movie premiere, but with this movie giving more of a laid back vibe I feel like this look definitely would have been a perfect choice for Dave to rock on the red carpet especially finished with a pair of black patent leather Christian Louboutin ‘Alpha Male’ slip on oxfords.
