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.
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 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!
