It’s SAG Award time and y’all know that means best dressed right? I’m actually shocked it’s been 3 whole weeks since the Golden Globes kicked off awards season and now we’re right back into the mix with the Screen Actors Guild Awards. Before you go on, please feel free to check out my picks from last year’s awards which you can find here.
I think it’s safe to say that Rachel McAdams was my favourite of the night – this Elie Saab dress is edgy but extremely feminine and looks beautiful with Rachel’s choppy blonde bob. The texture and structure of the dress does not swamp her petite figure and I adore the neckline. I can’t wait to see what she wears to The Oscars.
Can you say b-o-m-b-s-h-e-l-l? I adore this Vera Wang dress on Sofia, she knows what works with her curves and this fuchsia colour looks incredible with her colourings. The deeper tone of lipstick works well as I think it really compliments the entire look.
Saoirse looks very fresh in this Michael Kors number, I love the soft make up and messy hair as it keeps the vibe young despite the dress being somewhat demure. The whole look is really effortless and the dress is extremely flattering. The statement earrings really pull everything together.
This Carmen Marc Valvo Couture (mouthful, ey!) gown is exquisite and looks beautiful against Laura’s dark waves. I adore everything about this look, the textured top half of the dress is simple but stunning and I love how it nips her in at the waist and flows out perfectly.
Zuhair Murad can do no wrong when it comes to dresses on the red carpet and this forrest green number on Marisa Tomei is beautiful. The beading is incredible and the deep v-neck adds sex appeal without being too much. It’s crazy to think Marisa is 51 because she looks so youthful.
I didn’t spot much red but when I was saw Tina Fey in this Prabal Gurung dress, with it’s simple halter neckline and soft drapes, I couldn’t help but get total body envy. Whilst the colour speaks for itself, so does Tina’s incredible figure and the dress shows this off beautifully. The hair and jewellery add extra glam to the look without distracting from the dress.
Who doesn’t love Viola Davis? She’s a phenomenal actress and all round babe and I can’t decide if I prefer the Zac Posen dress or the hair and make up on her. I love the deep purple and berry tones and how they compliment this unusual muted lavender dress completely. The neckline was very flattering on Viola, keeping it classy with just a hint of va-va-voom.
I say this time and time again about Kate Winslet, if it ain’t broke…don’t fix it. She constantly gets it right with her body shape and the dresses she wears. Hourglass perfection! I love dark green on her because it compliments her hair and skin tone wonderfully. I love how simple this Armani dress is but it’s beauty is that it fits Kate like a glove.
Naomi is always one of my favourites on the red carpet, so when she was MIA for the Golden Globes, I was disappointed. However, last night she wore this stunning black and blue Burberry textured dress which upon first look could be seen as a bit boring but I love how fresh it looks with her dark lips and bag. I adore her hair shorter with just a little rough texture and bend. She looks stunning!
Look at that ponytail…just look at it. I’m getting major pony-envy right now. I love that her hair is pulled back in such a beautifully simple way. The star earrings keep it youthful as does the neutral make up. The Carolina Herrera dress is beautiful and whilst it is dark, the contrast between her hair and the dress makes it more eye-catching. I adore the neckline and texture which keeps the dress interesting.
Thoughts on the show…
I think it’s safe to say Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson are the frontrunners for Best Actor/Actress going into the Oscars but I still think there’s more twists to come. I loved that Alicia Vikander won Best Supporting Actress despite her role in The Danish Girl clearly being a lead part. I sense she may well beat Kate Winslet in the long run so her being included in that category was interesting. It was great to see the SAGs dish out awards with diversity which showed the Academy how it’s done. I loved seeing Idris Elba receive two awards, one for film and the other for TV which shows it’s not just TV that can have incredible performances from men and women of colour. It’s such a shame that there’s still so much regression in the industry. For me, it’s not even about colour or gender, if someone portrays a character in such a profound and brilliant way, they should be recognised. I think this year it’s extremely hard because there have been so many outstanding performances both on the big screen and the small screen. I was happy to see Viola Davis win for How to Get Away with Murder because she is flawless in that show so it was great to see her win another award for playing Annalise Keating.
Who were your best dressed?
Love, Kate xo
