The SAG Awards are an interesting no-rules awards show. Some actresses dress it way up...maybe too much so; others see it as a chance to take some serious risks, and others (like Meryl Streep) toss on an LBD from the back of the closet and call it a day. I was impressed to see a lot of risky moves, but I wasn't sure how many I thought were really successful. Can't fault a girl for trying, though! Here's my round-up of who knocked it out of the park, who gave it a good college try and who needs a new stylist, stat.
Honorable mention for the hottest couple there. Dayummmm.
Good-ish...Maybe? I don't know, really.
My first thought when I saw Rosamund Pike's Dior gown was that I love a good trapeze shape and that it was a vast improvement from her ill-fitting Golden Globes gown. Then I thought it looked like a duvet cover from Anthropologie. Then I thought it looked like a duvet cover from Anthropologie covered in bath loofahs. But still, I think this is a step in the right direction.
Naomi Watts appeared in her simple Balenciaga gown and I said...
I didn't like it on Julianne Moore in 2010...why would I like it now? AMBER NEVER FORGETS.
The Big Bang Theory's Melissa Rauch also came dressed as an ugly valentine. Hers was created by Pamela Rolland. It's probably satin or taffeta, but it looks like painted paper on the bottom. Not good.
Poor Lady Edith is also a repeat SAG carpet offender. Her Vionnet looks at best like a very fancy sheer zebra stripe envelope and at worst like a spring roll with little shrimp inside. I think she was going for edgy and ethereal, but it just has me craving Thai food.
