Tomorrow we kick off my wishes for the 2020 Venice Film Festival, which is confirmed to be an in person event this year, but before I do that I still have have 5 more wishes for the Deauville American Film Festival. It is also going to be among the first of in person events held amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. I don’t quite know what the festival will actually look like as Europe has travel restrictions on Americans entering the continent because we suck at social distancing as a whole. So while I am putting wishes into the universe for stars to give us glamor moments in Deauville I’m not holding my breath that there will be a whole host of Hollywood starlets walking the red carpets at the festival. I almost passed on including Dianna Agron in these wishes. Her film Shiva Baby is going to be screening at the festival, but I have honestly fallen out of the love with Dianna’s style. Back in the height of GLEE I loved to feature Dianna in my wishes, but since the series ended she hasn’t been one of my favorites anymore. Now with that in mind my wish for her to bring to life on the red carpet at the Deauville American Film Festival would definitely put her back on the right track. I adore this hot pink one shoulder ruched silk Oscar de la Renta Fall 2020 RTW draped gown as it was presented on the runway, but for Dianna I would like to see the gold velvet belt it was styled with on the runway. I feel like this gown with a sleek teased updo, defined eyes, glossy light pink lips, a hot pink Judith Leiber Couture ‘Fizzoni’ crystal embellished envelope clutch, sand pink satin Aquazzura crustal embellished bow heel detailed ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Kwiat ‘American Beauty’ pear and marquise cut white diamond feather like drop earrings would definitely be a major glamour moment for Dianna. Kajillionare premiered earlier this year for the first time at the Sundance Film Festival and is now going to screen at the Deauville American Film Festival. As I was watching the Dior Cruise 2021 collection show online I saw this light brown floaty chiffon caftan style gown which features and intricate embossed leather bustier and Evan Rachel Wood immediately came to mind. While I wasn’t a huge fan of this collection as a whole and it was a regression to more of the same for Maria Grazia Chiuri I feel like this gown on Evan would be a major fashion moment. I always believe that even with the most mundane looks that if they are styled right on the right person that a Best Dressed of the Year list worthy moment could be on our hands. Now I would take this gown style it with a retro glam updo, defined eyes, deep red lips, a pair of nude suede Aquazzura ‘So Vera’ crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a pair of antique gold girandole drop earrings from Kentshire for Evan and I think it could be that simply major moment I am imagining. We’ve never seen Gina Rodriguez work the red carpet at a major red carpet film festival. I would love to see her make the trip to France to promote Kajillionare at the Deauville American Film Festival. While unfortunately I don’t know if that will be the case. If it is I want her to go full glam for the red carpet wearing this black and white satin Rasario Fall 2020 RTW strapless pleat detailed a-line ball gown. I really believe that Gina would look absolutely glamorous wearing this gown especially if styled with a sleek updo, defined eyes, red lips, a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Galativi’ suede and mesh pointed toe pumps, and statement white diamond and emerald Butani drop earrings. Last year The Assistant star Julia Garner caught my eye as one to watch. We haven’t really seen much of her this year except for a navy and white Ralph Lauren jumpsuit at the Berlin Film Festival where she also promoted the same film. So I would love to see her in Deauville bringing the glam to the red carpet. As I was putting this list together I knew pretty quickly that I wanted to see Julia wearing this rose pink sequin Monique Lhuillier Fall 2020 RTW slim fit, column silhouette gown which features a lace-up detail, v-cut neckline and long poet sleeves. It is an effortless glam moment and I believe that Julia would definitely be able to sell it to me on the red carpet. Style it with a curly updo, defined eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, petal pink Giuseppe Zanotti crystal embellished three strap sandals, and vintage art deco platinum set white diamond drop earrings from Neil Lane Couture and I know that Julia would show me why I put her on my ones to watch radar in the first place. Ammonite was supposed to screen at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this year. When the Cannes officially announced their selection this film was one of the only ones I was really sad we were missing out on a premiere for because of Saoirse Ronan. So when I saw that the film would be screening in Deauville I wanted to make sure I included her. She is always one I am excited to see on the red carpet. She knows how to take risks and really deliver. I went for more of a modern ballerina vibe than an avant garde look for Saoirse opting for this neutral Khaite Fall 2020 RTW ‘Mariah’ tulle midi gown which features a drop-waist silhouette, an a-line pleated skirt, semi-sheer paneling on the waist, v-cut neckline, and butterfly sleeves. This glamorous moment on Saoirse would look absolutely beautiful on the red carpet at the Deauville Film Festival, especially if styled with a sleek asymmetric knotted updo, defined eyes, bright pink lips, a pair of gold Sophia Webster ‘Dina’ gem studded PVC strap mule sandals, and beautiful multi colored fancy stone and white diamond Bulgari ‘Barocko’ Collection drop earrings.
The 2020 Deauville American Film Festival will open on September 4, 2020 and run through September 14, 2020.
