“Alber Elbaz is the master of draping, and the green of this effortless and modern gown is so gorgeous. The beautiful color would really pop on the red carpet, and Irene Neuwirth’s cocktail ring is a great accent next to the green gown. The earrings bring lightness to the face without fighting with the gems on the dress, and the Aquazurra silver heels and Lee Savage clutch also accent the gown. My inspiration for this look is an effortless modern woman.”

“I envision someone like Emma Stone in this red carpet look, as the modern, feminine pieces would tie in beautifully with her luminous skin tone. The structured Repossi ring perfectly juxtaposes the delicate silhouette of the Monique Lhuillier strapless gown, while the movement of Irene Neuwirth’s ocean-inspired pieces would complement Emma’s whimsical free spirit.”

“Here’s a look I’d envision Andrew Garfield wearing at the Golden Globes. He’s young, edgy, and modern, and this Lanvin tuxedo is a great update on the classic.”

“I chose a low-back halter dress by The Row for a clean update to Hollywood Glamour, perfect to ensure you look good from all angles. Paired with a geometric clutch by Rauwolf, spiked drop earrings by Monique Pean, and a simple infinity-style cuff by Eva Fehren, this look is perfect for a ‘current’ women of any age. I also finished it off with a chic Gianvito Rossi sandal, and envision the look being completed with a bronze makeup palette and a soft up-do.”

“I envision Julianne Moore attending the Golden Globes or Oscars in this elegant gown from Erdem. I paired the gown with diamond and moonstone earrings from Irene Neuwirth and a vintage cocktail ring by Manhaz Ispahani. The look is finished off with a crystal-embellished Fendi Baguette and beautiful T-strap sandals from Sergio Rossi.”

“This take on the tux is edgy but elegant, current but classic, and on trend without being too trendy. I could see this being worn by someone like Harry Styles at the Grammy or Terrence Howard at the Emmys—a guy who’s stylish but also has a little edge to him.”

“One of the tricks to being red-carpet-ready is mixing it up by adding some slightly unexpected elements that make it unique to your personality.  I never pair things as shown by designers—that can lead to seeing your look on someone else, and if someone happens to be wearing the same thing, you won’t be winning a “Who Wore It Best” showdown! Pairing navy and black together makes this J Mendel gown elegant, while lingerie-inspired sheer lace insets add sexiness. The open neckline is perfect for showing off this amazing Monique Pean multi-tone diamond necklace. To create a little movement next to the face, these delicate earrings, also from Monique Pean, create a nice contrast to the more static neck statement. While we’re at the face, a shimmering, silver, smoky eye—created with the new prismatic shadows from Surratt—gives a perfect finish.  I’ve opted for this Raowulf clutch instead of a cuff—it adds just as much of a statement, plus allows you to sneak in your phone to capture all the behind-the-scenes shenanigans. We’ll complement the lace details of the gown with this stunning wavy heel beauty from Louboutin and finish off with a mink shrug from Lilly e Violetta, which adds warmth without detracting from the look.”

“My personal style is a combination of the very feminine interwoven with unexpected, tougher pieces for balance, which I think you can see here. Jennifer Lawrence is one of my current favorite actresses, and she embodies a playful approach to red carpet. The Valentino dress would be perfect for the Oscars nominee luncheon, and the Loyd/Ford dress would be perfect for the Golden Globes. These pieces represent an organic and youthful approach to the classic screen siren.”

“This 2016 Oscar look is how I see Rooney Mara, but reimagined as Carole Lombard. Rooney’s at the forefront of modern fashion and film, just as Carol was in her time. This Givenchy gown creates a perfect foil for the figure in a leopard print, and the reversible dark chocolate mink from The Row would drape beautifully across the shoulders. The combination of the gown and short mink gives a woman the dynamic of beauty and movement, unencumbered. Christian Louboutin’s pump elevates with powerful ease, and Monique Pean Atelier’s diamond bracelet cools down the hot colors, flashing enough serious gems to please the crowd. The finishing touch is the Brutalist clutch by Rauwolf, tonally bringing all the elements together.”

“The moment I saw this Isaia tuxedo, it screamed Bradley Cooper to me. This complete look would be the perfect alternative to all black for an occasion like the Golden Globes, without sacrificing any of his style and charisma.”
