I Care a Lot is an American dark comedy thriller film written and directed by J Blakeson that stars Rosamund Pike, Peter Dinklage, Eiza González, Chris Messina, and Dianne Wiest. The film had its world premiere at the 2020 Toronto International Film Festival, with unfortunately no red carpet. It is scheduled to have a streaming release in most countries on February 19, 2021, through either Netflix and Prime Video depending on the region. The premise of the film is about a woman who makes her living stealing from the elderly by deceiving judges into appointing her as their “legal guardian” but finds herself in hot water when her latest victim turns out to have ties to a powerful gangster. This seems like it will be a great break from the Rom-Com movies that have dominated during quarantine. I am just as disappointed as I was for the cancelling of red carpets in Toronto to know that there won’t be a red carpet promoted by Netflix for this film either since there are two red carpet heavy hitters among the cast. Eiza González is still a rising star when it comes to red carpet dressing, but she has had major moments from labels like Ralph Lauren, Brandon Maxwell, Prabal Gurung, and Carolina Herrera. For my wish for what I would have loved to see her wear on the red carpet to premiere I Care A Lot I went for a moment that is all about color with this bold green screen green Elie Saab Spring 2021 one shoulder crepe jumpsuit which features cutouts on the back, wide leg trousers, a shawl scarf extension, and complementary crepe belt. This look is definitely bold. I always have a hard time picking this color because I know it can be the look that launches a million memes because of how easy it is to cut out and replace this color in photoshop. We all saw how it worked out for a certain former First Lady. Even with my reservations I still think that Eiza would absolutely shut down this moment especially if styled with a sleek updo, soft smokey eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, a pair of nude mesh Casadei ‘Blake’ pointed toe ankle strap pumps, and a little bit of sparkle via IVY New York ‘Mistletoe’ tsavorite and diamond drop earrings. I have always been a fan of Rosamund Pike’s style and I cannot wait to see her back on the red carpet. When choosing a red carpet look Rosamund always goes for something sharp so I knew immediately the look I had in mind for her for this wish list. Had there been a premiere for I Care A Lot I would have loved to see Rosamund step out onto the red carpet wearing this white Alexander McQueen Spring 2021 RTW ensemble which features a cropped one button blazer over a layered frayed tulle sheer dress with side cutouts and a black leather belted waist. This look is sharp and soft all at the same time. The structure of the blazer offsets the softness of the layers of tulle beautifully and I know that Rosamund would definitely be the perfect person to bring this look to life on a red carpet, again. I say again because Chinese supermodel Liu Wen wore this look to the presentation of the collection in China back in December. I still think it would be a great moment for Rosamund and the two would wear it in vastly different ways. While Liu wore a the look as presented in the lookbook I would have Rosamund style it with white satin Jimmy Choo ‘Romy 85’ crustal trimmed pointed toe pumps, a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, a pop of color via red lips and a pair of simple emerald cut emerald Bulgari stud earrings trimmed in white diamonds. It would definitely have made for another major moment for Rosamund.
I Care A Lot will premiere on Netflix on Friday February 19, 2021.
