Well after my quick two day break for Palm Springs Film Festival Awards wishes I am back to tie up all my wishes for the 2021 Golden Globe Awards. This years show will go live from (at least) two locations on both coasts of the United States this weekend and I cannot wait. I won’t lie with these wishes I feel like I’ve set myself up for failure really going for bold glamorous looks for the stars nominated even though they won’t be appearing live at any of the events. Well, today we are going to talk all about presenters who have been asked to appear live and in person at either the Beverly Hilton in LA, where Amy Poehler will be co-hosting from, or the Rainbow Room in New York City, where Tina Fey will be holding down her hosting duties. I will say this the stars who will be presenting live better bring all the glamour to life and make sure that my craving for drama and moments is satiated. Let’s kick things off with Awkwafina. I’ve enjoyed watching her style grow since she burst onto the scene thanks to her role in Crazy Rich Asians. I’ve really enjoyed her recent lockdown glam promo tour for Raya and the Last Dragon where she’s rocked looks from Dior, Versace, Miu Miu, Celine, Chanel, and Moschino in recent weeks. I want to see Awkwafina bring a super glamorous moment to the stage at the Golden Globe Awards picking this rose pink Christian Dior Spring 2020 Couture one shoulder pleated chiffon gown with a cape and a flowing a-line silhouette. While I might not be the biggest fan of Maria Grazia Chiuri’s Dior I do love this soft feminine moment and I definitely can imagine it being phenomenal moment on Awkwafina. To make this moment red carpet ready I would love to see her styling this gown with a sleek center parted hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, dark antique rose pink lips, gold Francesco Russo ‘Hill’ lace up ankle strap sandals, and a pair of yellow gold Buccellati ‘Rete’ chandelier earrings with pearls.I always love seeing Catherine Zeta Jones on the red carpet so when I saw her name announced as a presenter this year I was THRILLED. She knows how to give sophisticated and sexy glamour on the red carpet without looking like she is trying. I was actually in the midst of picking an Elie Saab Couture gown for Cynthia Erivo when the announcement about Catherine came. I immediately dropped that idea in favor of putting Catherine in a gown from the Elie Saab Spring 2021 Couture collection. I saw this one shoulder silver gown with a single cape sleeve, intricate crystal embroidery, and a sheer skirt and it was seared in my mind. As I read Catherine’s name I knew it was the perfect option for her to bring to the stage at this years Golden Globe Awards. Styling this gown with a sleek high bun updo, defined eyes, light rose pink lips, silver glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Max 150’ peep toe ankle strap sandals, and a selection of dazzling Lorraine Schwartz jewels including 60 carats of white diamonds in three stone drop earrings, a white diamond coil ring, and a white diamond halo set three stone ring would make sure this look screams glamour from head to toe. As I said above I was thinking about an Elie Saab Couture gown for Cynthia Erivo to wear as a presenter this weekend at the Golden Globe Awards. I was loving the drama, but when I changed courses and went with Catherine in Saab I needed to go back to the drawing board for Cynthia. Immediately I went to Christopher John Rogers for a dramatic moment. I thought about Cynthia giving us an 80’s inspired glam moment in this fuschia strapless crinkle pleated taffeta strapless gown from the Christopher John Rogers Fall 2020 RTW collection with an asymmetric tea length tulip skirt, thigh high split, and a dramatic train and fell in love. This gown is a risk because it is all the things about the 80’s we usually hate, but I feel like if anyone could sell it to me it would be Cynthia. She knows how to take risk and make them work as well as own a really dramatic moment so I just believe this look would be perfect. Now as I was thinking about how to style this gown I kept thinking about styling this gown with turquoise jewelry and I found the perfect suite to compliment it via a white diamond trimmed turquoise Van Cleef & Arpels drop earrings, collar necklace, and bracelet set from the 1970’s. Her signature shaved head, defined eyes, glossy nude lips, and a pair of matching fuschia satin Christian Louboutin strappy platform sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Cynthia. There was a time a couple of years ago where Kyra Sedgewick was turning out looks from brands like Emilio Pucci, Reed Krakoff, Zac Posen, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier, Armani Prive, L’Wren Scott, and Oscar de la Renta all of whom were it designers of the moment. She is currently staring in the ABC comedy Call Your Mother and is confirmed to be one of the presenters this weekend. I would love to see Kyra give us dazzling glamour Sunday night and I think that this gold sequin Pamella Roland Pre-Fall 2021 caped cap sleeve column gown with an open back and a back vent would give us just that. It would be brought together perfectly with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, gold Gianvito Rossi ‘Plexi’ pointed toe pumps, and Sutra ‘Tassel’ collection rose gold set champagne diamond chandelier earrings. Rounding out today is This Is Us star Susan Kelechi Watson. She has a bold sense of style and I am always rooting for her to succeed, but unfortunately it just hasn’t worked for me yet. With so much pressure for the presenters at this years Golden Globe Awards I really want to see Susan give us a major fashion moment. I went for something I feel like I wouldn’t normally pick for the Globes red carpet when I picked this black and gold sequin chevron Morphew Collection backless disco gown which features a halter neckline, plunging keyhole neckline, and a thigh high split but it just worked for me. This is a one of a kind gown made for vintage retailer Morphew out of vintage sequined fabric from the 1970’s and so it has legs in up-cycled sustainability. Now with the right styling I definitely feel like this edgy and super sexy glam moment would be perfect for Susan to bring to life for the Globes. A sleek high ponytail, smokey eyes, deep red glossy lips, a black satin Jimmy Choo ‘Cloud’ crystal clasp clutch, a pair of black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Lilah 120’ strappy sandals, and statement 18k gold set Fernando Jorge ‘Disco’ white diamond earrings would definitely make this look a major modern disco glam moment.
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.
