At the first major awards show last week the Golden Globes had some great gowns on the red carpet, most notably the red haute couture displayed by Emma Watson and Lupita Nyong’o.
We come to the next major red carpet, the Screen Actors Guild Awards, which was held in LA last night. Overall I feel like there wasn’t really that wow moment when we saw Lupita’s Ralph Lauren at the Golden Globes, but there was still plenty of beautiful dresses on display.
Watching the live coverage on E! was pretty slow to begin with, seems like the celebs were late to attend the red carpet and there were definitely a lot of looks that were not covered by presenters Guiliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and Ross Matthews. We got most of the major stars, speaking with the presenters including of course Jennifer Lawrence and her “armpit vaginas”.
As well as the LOLs from Jennifer Lawrence, I was absolutely thrilled to see her in the Christian Dior Couture Fall 2013 look that I picked as my number one choice for her to wear during awards season. I was so glad for this sparkly column dress after Jennifer’s disastrous look from the same couture collection last week. It was still a simple look, and she had toned down the make up to make the dress be the focal point. A comment was made to Guiliana in reference to how tight her dress was and how she was worried her arm skin looked like a vagina!
Lupita Nyong’o looked stunning in a custom turquoise Gucci gown with a slight train. The contrast of the colour against her skin just made her look even more flawless, and the floral and gold detail was exquisite. I did really love this gown but if I had to choose between say her last three looks, from the Golden Globes, the Critics Choice and the SAG Awards I would pick the red Ralph Lauren. But I am still excited to see what she picks for the Oscars because surely by now designers are clamouring to dress her for the biggest red carpet of them all.
After her Valentino look at the Golden Globes, Amy Adams chose to cover up a little bit more skin with her royal blue Antonio Berardi dress. I love this colour on her, she knows blue works well against her hair colour and the structured bust and shoulder cutout make this fitted gown stand out that bit more. If I had to say anything it would be the crystal embellished belt, I think it’s my own personal opinion but I don’t like the crystals and would have preferred a gold metal belt instead, or maybe it serves in place of a necklace.
I didn’t see Isla Fisher on E! but looking over all of the coverage today I noticed how beautiful she looked. Her Oscar de la Renta silver satin dress evokes the feel of old Hollywood glamour but in a modern way, with the dark berry lip, green jewels and voluminous hair. I can’t decide how I feel about Emilia Clarke’s custom Calvin Klein, it just seems like she’s blending rather than standing out. I felt the coppery sequin one shoulder dress washed her out but she got to flirt with Jared Leto so I think she felt like a million dollars either way. I’m always going to like a dress that is a great colour, so Sandra Bullock’s jewel green Lanvin dress was a good look for her. Some people on Twitter felt it was too “bridesmaid” but the thigh split, pulled back hair and shorter length certainly worked for me.
I’ve included Cate Blanchett below in the best of the rest on the red carpet, I really disliked her pink Givenchy gown but it seems that everyone else loved it. They are lying when they say she was the best dressed at the SAG Awards, that is a pregnancy gown if I ever did see one and she’s not even pregnant! Someone who is actually pregnant gets a pass for her Prada ensemble, I mean Kerry Washington wearing a crop top is so brave that I don’t care – I’m a gladiator through and through. Other worthy mentions include Jane Krakowski’s green Roland Mouret, Claire Danes in Vionnet, and Jennifer Garner in Max Mara.
