Award Season Red Carpet Looks ♥

Hi everyone! I’m Christine from Fash n Chips. Virginie asked me to write a guest post for her blog and of course I’m happy to do this for her! Now since Awards Season is about to kick off and Virginie and I (and I assume her readers as well!) are both very much into film ánd fashion I figured it would be nice to come up with a Red Carpet Wishes post for her blog.

The Golden Globes and SAG Awards will both take place in January, before the new Spring 2012 Couture collections are presented and before most of the Fall 2012 fashion weeks have started, so my wishes are all from the latest available designer collections and with just the Golden Globes and SAG Awards in mind. When the new collections have been presented I’ll possibly come up with an Oscars Red Carpet Wishes post later in February on my own blog. But for now, here are my wishes..
Kate Winslet is nominated for 2 Golden Globes and a SAG Award and if this is not a reason for an eye-catching gown I don’t know what is. Kate likes her gowns simple and form-fitting and I’d love to see her in this shiny L’Wren Scott gown from the Spring 2012 collection. The black Anne Valérie Hash Couture dress has Golden Globes and SAG Awards nominee Tilda Swinton’s name all over it and the green Giorgio Armani dress I’m sure would look outstanding on Evan Rachel Wood. Meryl Streep is also a Best Actress nominee at both the Golden Globes and SAG Awards and seeing as she likes to wear long-sleeved dresses I think this shiny green Andrew Gn number could be perfect for her (perhaps with a slightly less deep v-neck). Clare Danes always seems to go for classic, simple dresses and although I do feel she could pull off something more dramatic, I think the classic designs suit her as well. And so for her I picked this beautiful mustard yellow Burberry Prorsum dress..

Rooney Mara, Best Actress nominee at the Golden Globes, is a bit of a newcomer on the red carpet and has made some very interesting outfit choices lately, so I’m very excited to see what she’ll come up with this Awards Season. I’d love to see her in Alexander McQueen and I think this nude embellished Resort 2012 gown would really suit her pale skin tone. Emma Stone is not nominated herself, but her film “The Help” is and I’m sure that because of this she will show up at one of the events at least. She’s quickly become one of my favourite celebrities on the red carpet and I have yet to dislike any of her red carpet looks. She would look simply angelic in the pale blue Elie Saab Couture dress I’ve picked out for her. Michelle Williams is nominated for a Golden Globe as well as a SAG Award and I can’t think of any style of dress to suit her better than this Audrey Hepburn-ish Monique Lhuillier dress from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. Like Rooney Mara, Jessica Chastain is also quite new on the red carpet and so far I’ve absolutely adored her red carpet choices. I think she’s not afraid to stand out a bit and she definitely would in a mermaid gown like the Zac Posen one I chose for her from the Pre-Fall 2012 collection. The warm colours of this dress would look divine with her red hair as well. And finally, for Charlize Theron (a Golden Globes nominee for her role in “Young Adult”) I picked out this stunning Atelier Versace gown.

Happy Award Season everyone!


  1. I think the Zac Posen if my favorite, SO glamourous!! But I could see myself wearing any of them on the red carpet (... one day!).

  2. Something's going on with the text? Besides the fact that it's huge on my computer haha, that last bit about Meryl Streep and Clare Danes is copied from an earlier part ;)

    I could see you wearing all these dresses as well one day Virginie, the Zac Posen one would be AMAZING on you :) x

  3. La robe Atelier Versace est m.a.g.n.i.f.i.q.u.e.

  4. Oups, the text should be fixed now! It appears so so small on my computer, but maybe it's just me?

    Yay for Award Season!!

  5. Wow - your choices are so spot on. I can imagine every single one of the celebs you paired them with on the red carpet! Great job!

  6. I think the choices you made for each actress are spot-on! I think Meryl Streep would look absolutely stunning in the deep, dark green Andrew Gn gown! Also, I am so in love the Alexander McQueen, Elie Sabb, Monique L’huillier, and Atelier Versace gowns...yeah I couldn’t pick just one!


I always love hearing what you think ♥
