2014 New York Film Festival: "Saint Laurent" Premiere Wish List

French beauty Lea Seydoux will take to the red carpet at the 2014 New York Film Festival to premiere her film "Saint Laurent" on Tuesday September 30th. The actress has stayed loyal so far thus year to Muccia Prada by only wearing Miu Miu and Prada on the red carpet. I would have expected her to break away and wear some custom Saint Laurent as the film is a biopic on the life and times of the houses late founder. Despite that I figure that Lea will wear yet another Muccia Prada designed frock for the films NYFF premiere. I saw the Miu Miu Resort 2015 collection and loved the idea of layering dresses which was done very chicly within this presentation but none of the full looks would I have picked for Lea to wear. So naturally what would I do? Pick two dresses from the collection that I would layer to give Lea the perfect red carpet look. I would put the flowing navy chiffon dress featured all the way right under the embellished suede shift dress to give a monochromatic statement that reads totally of the 1960's when the Saint Laurent house was founded. I would finish the look off with a silver box clutch, a chic up do, a bold red lip, and a pair of navy sandals to ensure that Lea gives perfect face on the NYFF red carpet.

2014 Deauville American Film Festival: "Get On Up" Premiere Wish List

While "Get On Up" has been playing in the United States for just over a month now the film will premiere at the Deauville American Film Festival on Friday evening. Academy Award winner Octavia Spencer joined the rest of her cast a few times at some casual premieres and junkets for the film. I am hoping that she will glam up with her go to designer Tadashi Shoji for the films Deauville American Film Festival premiere. Last Thursday Tadashi showed the Tadashi Shoji Spring 2015 RTW collection at the tent at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City. I would pick this nude lace and silk chiffon cap sleeve slowing gown for Octavia to wear for this red carpet. This is a simple yet elegant style that would work perfectly for this film festival premiere. Finish the look with a gold clutch and a pair of gold sandals to give Octavia a perfect red carpet moment.
Academy Award nominee Viola Davis has been pretty much exclusively wearing Escada on the red carpet this year, and unlike the Octavia/Tadashi exclusive paring the looks are just okay not stellar. I would love to finally see her join the cast at the Deauville American Film Festival wearing this stunning blue tone on tone Vivienne Westwood Resort 2015 taffeta gown that features the houses signature structured draping. I know many are sick of these style of gowns but when a new and interesting style comes along I immediately want to see it on the red carpet. I would finish this look with a dark blue Edie Parker clutch, black sandals, and some simple diamonds accessorize this look perfectly for the red carpet. A chic curly bob and a red lip would complete this elegant classic red carpet ensemble.
