Awards season is upon us and that can only mean lots of glamorous red carpet looks. The Screen Actors Guild Awards took place over the weekend and gave us plenty to say. Some really spectacular outfits graced the red carpet, but unfortunately, there was also an abundance of fashion gaffes.
Amy Adams in Antonio Beradi
The beautifully made gown deserves its own award. I absolutely love the colour against her pale skin, and the silhouette really flatters her figure. The asymmetry is beautiful as well as the obvious nod to old school glamour. The slit shows just enough leg that it’s sexy but not too much that it overpowers the dress.
Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
J Law is known for her superb acting chops, as well as her ability to absolutely slay the red carpet. The beautiful gown hit all the right notes, and hugged her in all the right places. I absolutely love the fact that it’s sequined, giving her a bit of oomph, and I also love that it’s totally different to anything we saw at this awards ceremony.
Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci
What can I say? This dress blew everyone away. I can honestly say, I’ve never wanted a dress more in my life! The silhouette flatters her exquisitely, and the colour looks spectacular against her skin. We love the flower detailing on the neckline, and the way that such a simple gown could say so much.
Sofia Vergara in Donna Karan Atelier
The Latin beauty left little to be desired at the 2014 SAG Awards. The embellished frock fits her like a glove, making all the right curves show. Beautiful.
Sandra Bullock in Lanvin
This is a beautiful dress to say the least. I love that Sandra took a risk and went for an unusual hem, as well as the bow. Going in the direction of an oversized bow could have had disastrous consequences, but she managed to pull it off. The slit is just right and the colour flatters her pale skin.
Elisabeth Moss in Michael Kors
The beautiful red dress looks absolutely smashing against her skin, it doesn’t wash her out or look too intense. The neckline looks darling, and the twist on the bust gives us the impression of a bigger, more voluptuous figure, also aided by the belt on her waist. A beautiful choice for someone as petite as Elisabeth Moss.
Camila Alves in Vintage Donna Karan
The stunning Camila KILLED it on the red carpet in her vintage yellow Donna Karan frock, which was expertly cinched at the waist to give the appearance of drapery.
Meryl Streep in Stella McCartney
Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Meryl, but this dress is so wrong on so many levels. It’s too casual and, not at all red carpet attire. I mean, we all know that Meryl can wear a paper bag and still manage to look good, but she missed the mark on this one. The frock didn’t in anyway, shape, or form, flatter her beautiful figure.
Sarah Hyland in Pamela Rolland
The Modern Family star absolutely missed the mark in a Pamela Rolland peach toned gown. I really really wanted to like this but I just couldn’t. The shape of the gown definitely drowns her figure, giving her an unflattering silhouette, and the hemline is all over the place. This dress made Sarah looking boring and bigger than she actually is. Boo.
Julia Roberts in Valentino
Going for a jumpsuit on the red carpet is pretty normal, it’s been done a number of times before. I myself have an affinity for jumpsuits, I just choose those that flatter my figure. Keyword: flatter. The pink jumpsuit hit all the right marks, except for one. The outfit leaves Julia looking figureless and hides any curves she might have. It makes her look like a block. A sad, shapeless block.
Kerry Washington in Prada
I love me some Olivia Pope Kerry Washington, but this look just didn’t do it for me. Note to self: never wear a cropped top while pregnant, and while you’re at it, don’t add an insanely flared skirt. Kerry managed to make herself look huge on the red carpet, and unflattering from every angle. I thought pregnant women wanted to show off their beautiful curves rather than drown them in fabric.
Edie Falco in Lanvin
Edie Falco managed to miss the mark on everything this time around. The ugly print, the weird hemline, those shoes. Nothing went together, and everything failed. She added a necklace, which made her look even louder, and a diamond cuff which just didn’t go along with the outfit.
Julia Louis Dreyfus in Monique Lhuillier
Julia usually manages to come off as cool, and collected, but this time around I just didn’t see it. The dress is just too blah, too boring. We feel she should have worn something a bit more daring and colourful.
Emilia Clarke in Calvin Klein
Khaleesi managed to look all sorts of wrong at the SAG Awards this year. Her Calvin Klein dress failed to impress, and unflattered her beautiful figure. Her dress is nice, in theory, it just wasn’t for her. I was expecting the mother of dragons to pull out a show-stopper, but unftortunately bad dresses happen to good people!
