I’m a day late, and a dollar short, but that’s neither here nor there. My husband was home due to the holiday yesterday, so I took full advantage of his presence (and my parents, who were visiting), and relaxed a little.
But now I’m ready to get back in the swing of things, so here are my thoughts on the fashion at this past Saturday’s Screen Actor’s Guild (or SAG) Awards.
My top 5 Worst Dressed of the evening were…
5. Claire Danes in Vionnet
Miss Claire, your hair and makeup are glorious, darling. That sheer mesh thing that makes it appear as though your cleavage begins at your clavicle? Not so much.
4. Edie Falco in a black and white, hi-low print dress
I love me a good print, but this is not a good print. And the drop wait is really not doing her any favors.
3. Amanda Peet in a blue and black dress
This dress has a lot of potential, but there is SO much going on. My eyes don’t know where to look. Her hair is also pretty pathetic looking. And I want to burn those shoes in the alley behind the building for her.
2. Kerry Washington in Prada
Love that you are proud of that baby bump, sweetie, but an unflattering crop top and that trash bag of a skirt are not highlighting the glow of your pregnancy. Don’t get dressed in the dark next time.
1. Mayim Bialik in a black lace dress
Morticia Adams? Paging Morticia Adams? Come on girl! You can do SO much better than this. I applaud her for keeping true to her faith (I believe she’s Jewish) and keeping herself covered as required by her faith, but I know there are better looking gowns out there that meet those requirements! If you have a stylist, fire them and if you don’t please hire one (please)!
Whew! Ok. That’s done. Now on to my favorite part!
My top 5 Best Dressed of the 2014 SAG Awards…
5. Sofia Vergara in Donna Karen Atelier
I love this look on her so much! It’s a great departure from her typical flouncy, mermaid-esque gown and her hair and makeup are superb! Keep going this direction, miss thang!
4. Anna Gunn in Monique Lhuillier
I realize this looks very “standard” for Hollywood, but don’t you agree the color and fit are fabulous? Her hair and jewelry also complement the overall look so well. Sometimes a simple gown does the trick (especially when you also lock it down in the makeup, hair, and jewelry categories).
3. Helen Mirren in Escada
I can only hope I have the grace and elegance she has when I am her age. Fierce.
2. Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi
From worst to (almost) first! AMY! This is a your style! This is your color! Please keep this up for the Oscars! I have nothing bad to say about this look.
1. Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci
Yes. 3 days later, I am still picking my jaw up off the floor for this girl. Amazing. Simply gorgeous in every way. I am on pins and needles for her Oscar gown. Pins. And. Needles.
Honorable Mention whom I can’t place in either category:
Cate Blanchett in Givenchy
I love Miss Cate. Luv huh. But I can’t decide how I feel about this dress. I want to like it, but the “lobster bib” (to paraphrase two of my favorite fashion critics) is completely distracting me. What do you think?
