SAG Awards Red Carpet Picks & Monday Morning Shopping

The Screen Actors Guild Awards were held last night in Los Angeles and the red carpet was nearly bi-polar.  My pick for best couple was Diane Lane and Josh Brolin.  She looked stunning in this blue David Meister gown and together they looked relaxed and happy to be in each other's company.  My usual faves, Brad and Angie made me swoon when he continued his habit of walking around to her side of the car to open her door.  But I felt that her Jenny Packman dress was not as show stopping as the Versace dress had been at the Golden Globes.  Brad can do no wrong and he wore his Balenciaga tux very well.

Emma Stone is quickly turning into my muse for red carpet dressing.  I loved her Lanvin gown at the Golden Globes, but she looked incredible decked in Alexander McQueen from head to toe.  The clutch was just the right touch of edgy and I definitely want!  She's my pick for best dressed.  I almost died when I saw Emily Blunt.  I loved, LOVED the brilliant shade of green.  She's another one that I adore and she didn't miss a beat in this Oscar de la Renta creation.

Finally, Rose Byrne.  I know some will not like it, but I LOVED her embroidered white Elie Saab jumpsuit and I appreciated that she embraced it down to the hair.  This look could have gone horribly wrong with an updo or cascading curls, but she nailed it with the chic bob.
I almost choked when Guiliana and Kelly were going on and on about how hard it would be to pick the worst dressed.  How about Busy Phillips? Why would it be okay to wear a muu muu to the red carpet? WHY? She failed.
Closely behind Busy were Shailene Woodley in that horrid L'Wren Scott floral nightmare and Lea Michelle in a Versace gown that she could not control.  If you have to keep adjusting your dress to show off your expansive legs, your dress doesn't fit! And get a freakin' hair dresser! This didn't look romantic or flowy, it looked like you couldn't find your hair brush.
I debated about Viola Davis because she looked stunning on the red carpet in her goddess gown by Marchessa.  She was almost a best dressed pick for me.  Then, she won and this happened during her acceptance speech.  She was one sob away from a wardrobe malfunction and that knocked her off my best dressed list.  The dress should have looked as fabulous on stage as it did on the red carpet.  
I can't wait to watch Fashion Police tonight and see if anyone else agrees with me.  In other news, IFB is one week away and I have no idea what I am going to wear.  I scored a pair of Citizens of Humanity wax coated jeans on Gilt a couple of weeks ago for $70.  I am thinking of wearing those with my newest purple cashmere hoodie and faux fur vest, but I think I am tired of my black boots.  I am thinking of trying to find these booties before my trip, but I know that $300 is not reasonable when you are in between jobs.  Telling Mr. Fantastic that I saved $120 off retail is not going to go over well when our bank account is missing $300. :(
I'll keep you posted if I find them anywhere else on sale.  Let me know if you have any other ideas.
