Screen Actor's Guild Awards Red Carpet Round-Up

The SAG Awards were held in last night and I swear that the red carpet must have lasted longer than the show itself.  I usually love Giuliana Rancic and the E! Red Carpet team, but last night was just a bit painful to watch.  There were multiple times that I felt like screaming at the TV, "The show is about the ACTORS, G! Not about your rainmaking dance moves and off-pitch singing!"  Ok, I had to get that off my chest, now on to the fabulous dresses.  Just like red was the color of the Golden Globes, navy blue was the color of the SAG Awards.  My pick for best dressed is Marion Cotillard in Christian Dior Haute Couture (photo above), but I also loved:

Amanda Seyfried in navy Zac Posen. She really let her dress and her figure shine wearing only minimal jewelry.

I love Sofia Vergara and I rarely feature her in my red carpet round-ups because I feel like she usually wears the exact same dress in a different color. You know the one, with the cleavage and the mermaid train, sometimes with sequins everywhere? I feel like I finally saw something different from her in this Donna Karan Atelier white lame gown.  She looked so romantic and chic.
Jessica Chastain wowed in red Alexander McQueen.  I don't usually like redheads in red, but she made it look fabulous. She definitely stepped up her game from the Golden Globes.

Claire Danes made up for looking like this a month after giving birth by assuring us all that she was wearing Spanx during her acceptance speech. Her sleek navy sheath is by Givenchy.

I was dissapointed that there was no red carpet walk for Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner, but she looked terrific in gold Oscar De La Renta.

Jennifer Lawrence also went the navy blue route in Christian Dior Haute Couture.  She, too, looked lovely and she nailed the red lip.

My favorite couples were Frieda Pinto in Roland Mouret and Dev Patel and perennial favorites of mine, Naomi Watts in Marchesa and Liev Schrieber.

Most everyone played it very safe and looked very pretty with the notable exceptions of Morena Baccarin in Basil Soda (someone on twitter said: "What is her stylist's major malfunction?!?" and I have to agree with them) and Rose Byrne who showed up in this floral Valentino. However, nothing stood out like Sigourney Weaver in Lanvin. Really?

To end on a good note, here is the always delectable Bradley Cooper in his favorite (and mine!) formalwear, Tom Ford.

Who were your picks for best and worst dressed?


  1. Marion was my favorite too!! I wish I had that hair. Flawless.

  2. Yes! I'm thinking of getting bangs this spring, but I doubt I'd look anything like her! Ha!

  3. Wow they all look stunning! Yes get bangs!!


Tell me what you think, but be nice! You catch more flies with sugar than spice!
