The SAG Awards #RedCarpet didn’t fail or impress me.
I was however mildly astonished to see my “better dressed” list had more names on it than my worst… huh? Why did I call it my “better dressed” list and not best or hits you ask? Well, best dressed/hits is a huge compliment, better dressed is a job well done! Totally not a backhanded compliment or was it?
Enough about that, lets get right to it. My picks for better dressed are…
Kaley Cuoco Sweeting stunning in Romona Keveza… I kinda wish she would have fixed the expression on her face though. Looks like she either got into a fight with her hubby and left him standing in the driveway or her little piggies hurt because her shoes were too tight! As for Julianna Margulies in cobalt Giambattista Valli Couture… this is a drastic improvement from the red number she wore to the #GoldenGlobes. And lets talk about the high slit and volume… the volume tricks the eye to think she’s curvier than she is. As for my girl Reese Witherspoon in custom Armani, she is a flawless vision in this one shoulder ivory dress. Witherspoon can do very little wrong in my eyes! Surprisingly Julie Bowen in Georges Hobeika made it on my list. The jeweled dress was appropriate and her hair added the right bit of sass and edge… an interesting juxtaposition. Hard to believe Ariel Winter in Zac Posen is 17 years old… two words… #KnockOut! And last but certainly not least Sarah Paulson in Armani Prive… this B&W number is chic, elegant, modern, sophisticated and… and… I can just go on and on. Loved her in #FX #AmericanHorrorFreakShow #LOVED The two-headed thing freaked me out at first but it kinda grew on me. Get it… #GrewOnMe
And now for my misses!
I’m just as shocked as you are… only two #FashionVictims on my list? WHAT? Amanda Peet got it completely wrong in J. Mendel. From the wrong color choice, to the lack of support for the boobies and what was with all the heavy pleats in that fabric? Oh Amanda, I expect so much more from the wife of the man that created #GameOfThrones. And yes, your eyes aren’t deceiving you… the legendary Joan Collins wearing I don’t know what is on my very short list of worst dressed. Love her tons but hate what she’s wearing for so many reasons I don’t care to go into. I will say I would have liked the dress if someone took a pair of scissors to the sleeves though. I know women of a certain age prefer to cover their arms but this is taking that preference to another level. The volume on the sleeves is distracting and competes with her hair, which competes with the texture on the dress, which competes with the gloves… oh damn, I said I wasn’t going to do that!
Keira Knightly kinda redeemed herself in this purple number by Erdem… then again, anything is better then that Chanel disaster she wore to the #GoldenGlobes
Until I saw the tight shot…
The random studded earring cuff thingy looked as though her stylist got glue gun happy with the bedazzler. And what was with the strange strings around her shoulders? Ugh! I kinda
But then I was brought back when I saw Julianne Moore in that emerald Givenchy Dress. She looked fabulous but something about the dress wasn’t adding up for me. Yep, I was #SMH
And then it struck me… the heavy beading around her bust was too much for her petite figure and the straps were slightly off shape.
You see… her shoulders look narrow/weak and her arms look pale/petite. I would have preferred a strapless version of this dress on her. She’s lucky I wasn’t on that #RedCarpet with my trusty
LOL!!! So there you Shut Up And have it my #FashionVictims, my #SAGAwards #RedCarpet dish. Trust and believe, my list was much longer but I chopped a lot because the other hits/misses weren’t interesting enough to mention or read. WHAT!!!
