A couple weeks ago we covered The Golden Globes, which is only the tip of the massive iceberg that floats in the awards ocean that is Hollywood this time of year. So let’s keep this carpet rolling next up: Screen Actors Guild.
For those who don’t know, The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards is the ceremony that celebrates and recognizes working actors in Hollywood. It’s not one of the biggest award shows, however, if there’s going to be cameras and the chance you might win something you still need to be on your toes and looking great!
Right off the bat we can tell that ruffles aren’t for chips anymore. Whether they are a small accent like in Claire Danes case, who looked stunning in a beautiful Louis Vuitton gown, or runaway ruffles like Amber Riley wore. I love Glee and I love her, but that dress looked like my 5-year-old cousin made it. Not a good choice for her.
Glitter and lace are two trends that seem have a lasting effect on fashion in the past years; maybe they’re becoming the new black? January Jones looked picture perfect in a golden lace dress with a sexy 1940’s side bang. I was shocked to see a well-groomed and tasteful Helena Bonham Carter. She cleans up well! But anything she wears from now on will be better then that trash-bag thing she wore to the Golden Globes.
A new trend that might become a spring fashion trend is the deep low cut neck. I know my mother disagrees with me about this, but I think they can be classy and elegant, when worn by the right person. Kyra Sedgwick wore a very nice little black dress with a swan-like V-neck cut. It was right for her age and wasn’t too much.
Whoever said “Never wear white after labor day” didn’t know that it would be the go-to color this awards season. I think white is becoming so big because it’s a sign of a new beginning. The only downside to wearing white is that it’s a difficult color to accessories with and it never works when it’s sheer.
Not a big fan of white? No problem. Pale yellows and oranges are another great option. Rosario Dawson jazzed up a radiant canary yellow dress with brillaint emerald green earrings.
Who toped my list? Mila, Tina, Rosario, and Lea of course. I swear I love Mila in everything! Rosario knows how to combine colors, and even though Tina has made many fashion disasters in the past, her red lace dress was prefect for her age and body type. As for Lea, well Oscar De La Renta makes fabulous dresses, so of course she looked like she’s walking on a cloud of glitter.
Of course I saved the worst for last! Hailee Steinfeld is an up-and-coming actress who’s destined for greatness but what was she thinking! That stripped Prada mess of a dress weighed her down and made her look way too old. I’m no fan of Kim Kardashian but I felt bad for her because her gown was like a trashy prom costume. Jennifer Lawrence had way too much going on as well, while Glee’s Naya Rivera had nothing going for her but bedazzled potato.
But this is all my humble opinion. So who did you think was best dressed? Who do you think needs to stop dressing in the dark? I’d love to see your comments.
