SAG Awards Red Carpet: Best Looks.

This morning I woke up wondering whether last night’s SAG Awards would prove to be a further disappointment, continuing on from the Golden Globes. Thankfully, I could not have been more wrong! The SAG Awards have brought style back to the carpet in abundance and have set my fashion spark alight. Of course there were some shocking ensembles, but for once the positives balanced out the negatives and, although it was tough, I have picked my best of the night for you.

I know that I constantly say this, but to try and change it up a little I’m going to write as little as possible and let you guys decide what you think of the looks yourselves. I can’t promise that I will be able to completely keep my fingers off the keys though 😛 Have a look at my favourite looks below:

1) Sarah Hyland in Vera Wang with Lorraine Schwarz jewels:

So fashion forward and beautiful.

The next 3 looks complete my top 4 of the night:

Emmy Rossum in Giorgio Armani paired with Cartier jewelry:

Lupita Nyong’o in Elie Saab:

Lupita’s gown was one that took me a minute to appreciate, but I have to say that I love everything about this aesthetic. The bold colours, voluminous skirt and full-length sleeves all combine perfectly with her jewelry giving the outfit that finishing signature stamp. Also, Lupita’s beauty look was one of my top two favourites of the night with her hair, make-up and Fred Leighton earrings leading to utter perfection.

Reese Witherspoon wearing Giorgio Armani and Harry Winston:

Effortless and classic – and just look at how happy she looks:

Next, we’re going to move onto some other stunners of the evening. These looks didn’t quite make it to the very top of the pack, but they are all gorgeous and well worth a mention. As I said earlier, the style from the night was amazing in comparison to recent award ceremonies!

Camila Alves dons Donna Karan Atelier:

 Julianne Moore in Givenchy:

The red hair and emerald green can be seen as such a classic or such a stereotype, but either way it’s for good reason – as flawlessly illustrated by this goddess.

Jennifer Aniston in John Galliano 1998 with an Amrit body chain:

Love it or loathe it, this is a look that got people talking. Personally, I adore the fact that Jen took this look from the fashion archives and brought 1998 into 2015! She looks beautiful, her body looks amazing and that Amrit body chain is just everything.

Sophie Turner:

Granted, I am a bit Sophie Turner obsessed, so she could literally wear a bin bag and I would love it, but I think that this look is young, fresh and shows promise for where her fashion point of view is heading. It’s a very urban look for the SAG Awards, with her hair and hoops bringing in that ethnic vibe. I love that she’s keeping it youthful and although I didn’t initially like them, the shoes do add a personal flare.

Keira Knightley in Erdem:

This will most definitely be a controversial choice and yes, I see why – just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean that you need to look like you’re wearing a moo moo! What I do love about this dress, is the colour and the sheer panel, both of which are beautiful on Keira. The only reason that this made it into my best dressed looks, however, is because of her beauty look. This is my favourite beauty of the entire night and I am just loving the Repossi ear-cuff with that bed-head hair and smokey eye – utter perfection.

Last, but not least, is probably another controversial pick, but one that I stand by.

Maisie Williams:

Maisie is only 17 and on anyone else I might not like this, but it is perfect for her age, her body and her style. She looks beautiful, young and stylish all whilst maintaining an element of class which young starlets often seem to forget when trying to grab the fashion headlines. Simply put, this look is pretty and I love her hair.

 

Well that’s all from me folks! Please let me know if you agree or disagree and if there’s anybody that you feel I left out.

As always, make sure to follow my blog and to see some of my worst dressed of the night head on over to my facebook page as I’ll be uploading photos of my least favourite looks throughout the day!

SAG Awards 2014: Worst dressed ladies.

Unfortunately with the good must come the bad and there were definitely some disasters on the SAG Awards 2014 red carpet and we’re gonna start off with what is probably the worst: Mariah Carey! Mimi was not on form last night wearing a dress which was unflattering on her figure, did NOTHING for her legs and was finished off with a horrific pair of finger-less gloves.

Let’s just say, the girl has definitely seen better days!

Another star who failed to hit the mark was American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson. The pretty blonde tried to turn up the style by wearing a flirty, voluminous number, but unfortunately paired with her short hair, not-so-there lip colour and underwhelming shoes the outfit proved to make the actress look some-what frumpy and older than the star usually comes across.

The final 2 ladies who missed the mark for me were Julie Bowen and Kerry Washington. Julie wore a ‘fashion-forward’ Carolina Herrera dress which did not compliment her figure at all and although she didn’t look bad, it was simply underwhelming. Kerry on the other-hand did look pretty in pink (and black), but I just can’t help to think that her top and skirt combination is a bit odd and unflattering to see on a pregnant woman, especially as the cropped top brings attention directly to her tummy.

SAG Awards 2014: Best dressed ladies!

We have quickly moved on from the fashion of the Critics’ Choice Awards to the new hot ticket of the week: the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and along with this hot ticket we have gained a whole new batch of dresses to feast our eyes on!

For the 2nd time in a row the up-and-coming Lupita Nyong’o has won my best dressed wearing an eye-catching aqua, fitted dress with stunningly intricate details across the top of the dress. This, matched with her perfectly understated hint of gold accessories, which can also be seen in the neck detail of the dress, leads to Lupita being a clear winner for me!

What’s interesting is that not only did Lupita beat out Jennifer Lawrence for ‘Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role’ thus putting an end to Lawrence’s winning streak, but in my opinion, also pipped Lawrence for best dressed of the night.

Jennifer can be seen here wearing a beautiful, strapless, sequined, floor-length dress with again, perfect accessories! The bejeweled earrings with the lack of a neck-piece adds to an optimum amount of accessories for this statement dress.Image

Finally, one more lady who impressed me on the night is ‘Game of Thrones’ actress Carice Van Houten, who went for a younger, sexy, smoldering look on the night. (Can’t say I agree on the shoe choice though…!)
