The 2020 E! People’s Choice Awards will take place this weekend. Aside from one blip with the Emmy Awards I have been more and more impressed with every awards show that has taken place during the COVID pandemic. I don’t know what we are in store for in terms of how the show is going to go, but we have been seeing lots of great things about come out about who will be there. Today we kick off my wishes for this years event starting with my picks for this years hostess, Demi Lovato, to wear on the “red carpet” and the stage over the course of the evening. I don’t know what a “red carpet” would look like for this years People’s Choice Awards, but I went for something really glamorous for Demi if there is a red carpet to walk. I don’t really think of the People’s Choice red carpet as one that calls for a gown. I usually think of great cocktail looks instead, but when I was compiling options for Demi I loved the idea of her wearing this black Zuhair Murad Spring 2020 Couture gown which features a gold beaded bodice, sheer paneling, and a plunging neckline. It is definitely more than we expect to see on this sort of red carpet, but I feel like in a year where we have been starved for glamour that this is a great option for Demi to kick off her lewks during the E! People’s Choice Awards. I would love to see Demi finishing this look with a sleek updo, smokey eyes, dark glossy rose pink lips, a pair of black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudist Disco’ ankle strap platform sandals, and Hanut Singh ‘Deco Fans’ drop earrings made up of rubies, white diamonds, and vintage blush pearls with gold chain detailing.For the actual show I’ve picked six wardrobe changes for Demi to rock over the course of the night while hosting the People’s Choice Awards. I went for color, dazzle, and glamour in all of my picks for Demi. To kick the telecast off I went for a super dazzling orchid pink sequin Retrofete ‘Edith’ mini dress which features a plunging neckline, oversized draped sleeves and subtle ruching on the skirt. I feel like Retrofete is a great choice for Demi. They are known for dazzling sequined looks and I can definitely see Demi rocking this dress. It fits the more relaxed glamour vibe that we typically see from the People’s Choice Awards and I would love to see Demi style it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, glossy blush pink lips, light holographic gold leather and nude mesh Christian Louboutin ‘Degra 2019’ spike studded pointed toe pumps.
Look number two I would love to see Demi wear during the telecast is another dazzling sequin moment. I had originally picked another orange look for Demi, but then I saw this tangerine orange sequin Alex Perry Fall 2020 RTW ‘Blaine’ strapless mini dress which features a floor length side sash detail. I saw it and I was immediately sold. It is fun and glamorous. I know this would be another major moment styled with a center parted wavy bob, smokey eyes, light pink lips, a pair of gold Versace snakeskin ‘Medusa’ platform ankle strap sandals, and a statement Marina B ‘Lalli’ collar necklace made of citrines, 18K Yellow Gold, and black enamel.
I went with a lot of off the rack looks for Demi. I’ve never really seen her as a huge runway girl. Now that being said, I do think that she rocks a lot of super high fashion labels. One she loves to rock in her personal style a lot is Balenciaga. So I felt like I had to dig through the virtual racks to find a major moment for her to wear on the People’s Choice Awards stage. I found that moment with this black crushed velvet Balenciaga long sleeve mini dress which features an asymmetric design which offers a figure-framing fit down one side and a caped silhouette on the other. It is a really cool dress that I think fits the heritage of Balenciaga in a very modern manner. Since color was my main objective with picking looks for Demi I thought that this look would be perfectly styled with a pair of fuchsia satin Jimmy Choo ‘Liu 100’ half d’Orsay stiletto sandals. A sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of Anabela Chan ‘Ruby Lily’ cluster drop earrings in 18k rose gold hand-set with an array of laboratory-grown synthesised and simulated gemstones including two oval-cut ruby garnets, pink sapphires with rose tourmalines would add the perfect finishing touches. Now I went for mostly solids in my options for Demi, but when I was looking at this white Versace Fall 2020 RTW slip dress which features zebra print detail on the neckline and slash cutouts I definitely thought it would be a super chic yet fun look for her to wear on the People’s Choice Awards stage. It is a good dress with just a fun detail. I decided to continue the zebra print out of the dress and into the shoes opting for a pair of zebra print Jennifer Chamandi ‘Vittorio’ pointed toe slingback pumps detailed with yellow straps and from the yellow straps I was inspired to add a pair of ombre yellow crystal Dannijo ‘Asher’ chandelier earrings to continue the fun color theme of my looks. A sleek bob, defined eyes, and nude lips would finish this look perfectly.
Christian Siriano is a designer we’ve seen dress Demi a couple of times so it didn’t surprise me that in the end I really did want to see her rocking one of his designs on this stage. This red bubble cape and hem mini dress from the Christian Siriano Spring 2021 RTW collection is the only next season look I picked for Demi and I really think it would be a fun glamour moment. It is less of the laid back vibe I went for with some of the other choices and I feel like it is a good change of pace to showcase in a night full of multiple wardrobe changes. Because of all the volume of the look I would keep the styling simple adding just a sleek updo, defined eyes, nude lips, and a pair of black, white, and red geometric pattern Christian Louboutin ‘Kate 100’ patent leather pointed toe pumps.
To close out the show I decided to go FULL GLAMOUR opting for this fuchsia Tom Ford silk-satin draped tea length gown which features thin straps, plunging neckline, and an asymmetrical skirt. It is such a really great gown and Demi loves an off the rack Tom Ford moment, so I think it would be a great moment for Demi do finish out the night hosting the 2020 People’s Choice Awards. I would do a chic wavy bob tucked behind one ear, defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of black Tom Ford mesh peep toe sandals with a PVC slingback strap, and a pair of dazzling Gismondi 1754 ‘Cascata’ collection white diamond chandelier earrings.
This whole line up would definitely make sure that Demi delivers major fashion moments from the moment the evening begins until she signs off at the end of the telecast. Which wish is your favorite?
