Golden Globes 2023: Jenna Ortega in Gucci

Current Cravings
Sublime Cravings Illustration Jenna Ortega in Gucci at 2023 Golden Globes

As soon as I saw Jenna Ortega on this year’s Golden Globes red carpet, I knew I had to draw her in this beautiful gown. Jenna wore a sheer brown pleated dress from Gucci’s Spring 2023 collection. Although the floor length dress features a train, the cutouts on the bodice keep it from completely overwhelming Ortega’s petite frame.

By the way, I am working on an illustrated e magazine. The magazine is my visual love letter to all of the divine and craveable fashion, beauty and decor trends that inspire me. The magazine will include: (1) high-fashion, concept driven editorial illustrations; (2) illustrated style guides; (3) illustrations featuring fresh-off-the-runway trends; and (4) profiles on fashion muses, past and present.

Interested in getting an issue of the e magazine when it drops this spring? Sign up for my email list so you know when it’s available for purchase.

One more thing… you can support this project by supporting me on Patreon. On Patreon, I provide my supporters with behind-the-scenes access by sharing sketches and some sneak peeks at illustrations I’m currently working on. Also, depending on the membership level selected, at least once a month I share the process (from sketch to completed illustration) that led to the final version of an illustration that will appear in the magazine. You can learn more details about what I share with my Patreon supporters here.

Met Gala 2022: Laura Harrier in H&M

Current Cravings

Here’s my illustration of one of my favorite looks from the 2022 Met Gala. Laura Harrier embodied the Gilded Glamour theme. Her silver and black custom H&M gown featured a built in corset, and was paired with a chunky multi strand pearl necklace. The overall look managed to fit the theme, but still felt modern and fresh.

Oscars 2022: Timothee Chalamet in Louis Vuitton

Current Cravings

Almost skipped doing an Oscars red carpet illustration this year, but I just couldn’t resist drawing Timothee Chalamet in this suit from Louis Vuitton Spring 2022 collection.

I’ve been considering trying my hand at including men in my illustrations, so seeing Timothee Chalamet’s red carpet look was just the inspo I needed to give it a try.

Grammys 2021: Dua Lipa in Versace

Current Cravings

One final red carpet illustration… until the Golden Globes in 2022 of course. This illustration features Dua Lipa’s red carpet look from this year’s Grammys. Just like Zendaya at this year’s Oscars, Dua’s look was also inspired by Cher. FYI, the hair flip in this illustration is a nod to Cher as well!

Dua wore a custom Atelier Versace dress, which was covered in crystal mesh and featured a Swarovski crystal embellished butterfly on the bodice of the gown.

Oscars 2021: Zendaya in Valentino

Current Cravings

As promised, here is another red carpet drawing that has been sitting on my iPad.

I’ve noticed that there are two people who I seem to draw almost every red carpet season. One is Regina King and the other is Zendaya. Honestly, both women rarely disappoint when they hit the red carpet.

Zendaya’s Oscars red carpet look was inspired by Cher. She wore this stunning custom yellow Valentino dress paired with Bulgari jewelry. Beachy boho waves added an ethereal vibe to this swoon worthy look.

Met Gala 2021: Anok Yai in Oscar de la Renta

Current Cravings

Usually I post illustrations of my favorite red carpet looks a few days after the event. But my illustrations from this year’s Met Gala, Oscars and Grammys have been sitting on my iPad, until I posted this illustration on my Patreon last week (I’ll mention more about my newly established Patreon account at the end of this post).

This illustration features Anok Yai’s stunning red carpet look from this year’s Met Gala. Her Oscar de la Renta gown is embellished with crystals in the shape of stars, moons and flowers. Sheer black opera gloves and an oversized black feather shawl complete the Josephine Baker inspired look.

One of my favorite looks from this year’s Grammys red carpet is Lizzo in Atelier Versace. The strapless white dress paired with a white faux fur stole evoked old Hollywood glam vibes.

Oscars 2019: Constance Wu in Versace

There were so many gorgeous looks on this year’s Oscars red carpet, but I couldn’t help draw Constance Wu in this lovely Versace gown. The stunning yellow off-the-shoulder tulle dress was accessorized with a Swarovski bracelet and earrings.
