We got really great news yesterday. The Hollywood Foreign Press Association, the body that presents the Golden Globe Awards, put out a request that presenters are being asked to appear live and in person at either the Beverly Hilton in LA or the Rainbow Room in New York. Now while the presenters will appear live it is reported that nominees will still appear remotely. I wonder how this will work. Usually nominees are among the list of presenters at the event and I am really interested in seeing what will come from this years red carpet. In today’s wishes we have nominees across film and television this year, for those nominated for their work in front and behind the cameras, and a legend who will be honored. Each of these wishes are definitely phenomenal moments I would absolutely adore seeing each look brought to life. Amanda Seyfried earned her first Golden Globe Award nomination this year for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to her performance in Mank. I have always loved seeing Amanda on the red carpet and I would love to see her bring the glamour and drama to the red carpet be it in person or remote. I adore this rose pink Elie Saab Fall 2020 Couture one shoulder draped gown which features a dramatic rosette shoulder detail, cape sash, belted waist, and a thigh high split. It is a very feminine approach to dramatic glamour and I know it would be something that Amanda would definitely be drawn to. With a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, deep raspberry pink lips, a pair of nude pink Aquazzura ‘Celeste 105’ crystal-knot grosgrain sandals, and dazzling Cartier High Jewelry white diamond, pink sapphire, opal, and amethyst drop earrings I know that this look would be perfection from head to toe giving Amanda an absolutely glamorous moment. Her role as polarizing conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly in Mrs. America has earned Cate Blanchett her 11th Golden Globe nomination. In the last year Cate has really put forward in her initiative to wear and rewear items in her closet. We saw this on display most recently when Cate rewore looks from Armani, Esteban Cortezar, and Alexander McQueen during her times as the jury president at the 2020 Venice Film Festival. I wonder if that will be the case should we see her take part in this years Golden Globe Awards telecast. If she does I would absolutely adore seeing Cate pull out the black velvet Armani Prive gown with white ostrich feather cape that she first wore to the 2018 Venice Film Festival premiere of A Star Is Born. I have always felt that gown is the epitome of classic glamour and Cate would definitely be able to sell it to me again. Now If she chose to wear something we haven’t seen her wear I still went into the archives to pick a “vintage” gown for her with this black crepe and velvet long sleeve column gown from the Armani Prive Fall 2008 Couture collection which features a plunging neckline, crystal embellishment at the hip, and a faux wrap style. This gown isn’t statement making, but is another fine example of incredible classic glamour. Now both gowns I would style the same way; with a sleek retro glam updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black beaded lace Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie 105’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling Tiffany & Co. ‘Schlumberger® Star and Moon’ earrings in platinum with round sapphires of over 10 total carats and round brilliant diamonds. Since 1962 Jane Fonda has been nominated for 15 Golden Globe Awards and has won seven. This year the icon will be honored with the Cecil B. DeMille Award. This award is given by the Hollywood Foreign Press Associations Board of Governors for “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment”. We can definitely say that Jane has done that from her role in Barbarella to Grace and Frankie. She has been a force on the screen for almost sixty years. I am very interested in what Jane may wear for this occasion. She made a big deal last year at the Oscars re-wearing a ruby red crystal embellished Elie Saab Couture gown first worn in Cannes with a coat that she touted as the last piece of clothing she would ever buy. So I would imagine that Jane will most likely bring something out of her closet to accept this years award. When I was looking at what Jane has worn on red carpets in recent years I thought it would be perfect for her to accept this years DeMille award wearing this electric blue customized Atelier Versace long sleeve fit to flare dress with an asymmetrical neckline, nude illusion cutout details, and a sweeping train (seen above left) that she first wore to the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. It was one of my favorite looks that year I can definitely see myself loving it yet again should she wear it this year, especially switching up the styling with her grey hair in a sleek side parted style, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of electric blue Alexandre Vauthier ‘ANEPUMPBLUE’ metallic leather crystal trimmed and PVC pointed toe d’Orsay pumps, and a bit of sparkle via Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond and sapphire chandelier earrings. Now I also thought that picking something vintage borrowed from a designers archive would be allowed under Jane’s activist stance on clothing. If it is I would absolutely love to see Jane dig in the Valentino archives and snatch out this red long sleeve column gown which features a high neck and an ostrich feather trimmed hem from the Valentino Fall 2001 RTW collection. There haven’t been many who have been able to get into the archives and wear Valentino by Mr. Valentino himself, but I would definitely love to see Jane bring this gown out of the archive and onto the red carpet. Now for the Valentino dress I would love to see it styled with Jane’s signature hairstyle, defined eyes, glossy pink lips, a pair of red crystal embellished satin Rene Caovilla pointed toe pumps, and simple Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond scalloped cluster earrings. Which ever route she chooses I am very excited to see what she will wear. One Night in Miami star Leslie Odom Jr. is one of my men to watch this awards season. While promoting the film from home we have seen him wearing classic menswear looks with a twist from labels like Etro and Moschino. So I am very much intrigued to see what the actor who earned his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture thanks to his portrayal of Sam Cooke in One Night in Miami will wear for December. So I was looking for a cool look and fell in love with the idea of Leslie wearing this navy blue textured two button Dzojchen Spring 2021 tuxedo. I love the simple twist on the classic cut and feel like it would definitely be a great choice for him. Now I go back and forth if I want to see Leslie wear the matching trousers with this look for the Globes. I am leaning towards no and going a little more classic with custom solid navy tuxedo trousers with the satin stripe down the side finishing the look with a crisp white shirt, navy satin bow tie, a pair of black patent leather Tom Ford ‘Gianni’ lace-up oxfords, and a midnight blue Montblanc ‘1858 Geosphere’ watch. Regina King is once again nominated for a Golden Globe this year after winning two years ago. This year she is nominated for Best Director for her feature film directorial debut One Night In Miami. We’ve already had a major red carpet at the Venice Film Festival stolen from us. She is very much in contention to take home this trophy so I would definitely want to see Regina give us a major glamour moment. I found that in this orchid purple Antonio Grimaldi Spring 2021 Couture on shoulder gown which features a single blouson sleeve, defined waist, column git, and a sweeping train. I adore when Regina gives us bold color moments and I can just imagine this gown being a major moment on her. This gown would hug all of Regina’s curves. With a sleek updo, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, a pair of rich fuschia purple Aquazzura ‘Tequila 105’ strappy crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a selection of jewels from Vanleles including round, marquise, & pear shaped white diamond ‘Bridal Cuff’ hoop wreath earrings and a white diamond ‘Legends of Africa Iconic’ diamond ring we would definitely have a major glamour moment on our hands.
The 2021 Golden Globe Awards will take place on Sunday February 28, 2021. You can see all of my wishes for this years event here.
