Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013
Award season is in high gear, darlings! The trends at this year’s Screen Actors Guild awards were: black (big surprise, and frankly, not very seasonal); strapless gowns; mermaid gowns; and side-parted, mermaid hair. Honestly, none of these ring my bell, and while I thought most everyone looked ‘nice,’ I was expecting a bit more glitz and glam (see the Golden Globes). That being said, here are my favorites from last night.
Amanda Seyfried in Zac Posen
Boy, this was the silhouette last night: strapless, mermaid gown and mermaid hair! I think Amanda did it best. I love the navy blue color of her dress, and I know it sounds silly, but that Lorraine Schwartz necklace made all the difference.
Kerry Washington in Rodarte
The more I looked at this, the more I liked it. Rodarte rarely does it for me, but I really like the shape of this on Kerry, and loved the fact it was white/silver in a sea of black.
Michelle Dockery in Chado Ralph Rucci
Speaking of black, this woman got it right. Normally cut-outs in a gown would be something that I hate, but I love all of this: the sheer panels and the sleeveless-ness really lighten this dress up, and she looks beautiful.
January Jones in Prabal Gurung
Oh, J Jo! I love how striking she looks, even with the pompadour hair. I also appreciate the risks she takes on the red carpet: she may be a ‘conventionally’ pretty woman, but unless she’s in Mad Men drag, she rarely dresses like one.
Viola Davis in Monique Lhuillier
I find it fascinating to see the runway look compared to the ‘real life’ (as if the red carpet were real life, but you know what I mean!) look. There were a few other women in this green/seafoam/teal color story last night (as there were at the Golden Globes), but I really thought Viola looked amazing in it. Plus, I am in love with her hair!
Sally Field in J. Mendel
No one else was in this lovely violet shade, and I thought she looked happy and radiant. Guess that’s what happens when you play opposite Daniel Day-Lewis, huh?
Busy Philipps in Gabriela Cadena
When my husband saw that Ms. Philipps was pregnant, he cracked, “Looks like Michelle Williams is going to be a father again!” You have to hand it to her, though: she looked absolutely stunning in that dress. Great color and again, a necklace brilliantly deployed.
How about you? I know you must have some favorites that I overlooked: tell me about it in the comments, won’t you?
