Well… I sat on this red carpet awards for a few days now, and starting the post with ‘well’, ain’t helping much. I liked it. The 2016 SAG awards red carpet had this calm and somewhat effortless vibe to it I think. There were a lot of nice dresses, few wowza moments, few wtf-were-you-thinking and some meh-whatever. It had it all, but there was no high stake so there was no major miss that’ll make us cry for days and turn the word upside down. Well maybe except for Nicole Kidman and Julianne Moore. Oscars might do that. Right.
Everybody at the SAGs this year was like strolling through the park for brunch. In evening gowns nonetheless but still, relaxed was the key word. Kristen Wig for instance came in pants, an outfit I still have no response to. I did like it. I guess. I swear, this week I probably bumped my head in my sleep cause I literally love everybody and tend to be less opinionated. Let’s hope it all passes by the time Oscars get here.
The hems of dresses were shorter, there were more column straight evening gowns and less mermaid. Even Sofia Vergara ditched the mermaid’s tail for this one and even went further pushing the envelope with the fuchsia… My eyes still hurt a bit, but at least I see dots of pink everywhere for the past 2 days. And what was with the long clutch?
Speaking of clutches there was Julia Louis Dreyfuss‘s Veep clutch… What the hell? That was a bit tacky I thought. But who the fuck gives a shit abut what I think.
All in all everyone seemed cool you know, for lack of better word. Borderline bored maybe, but that ain’t stopping us mortals to grow big heads when playing stylists with the stars. So here we go:
BEST DRESSES – 2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet
I don’t have a favourite. I am so normal right now I’m boring myself. I did love Laverne Cox‘s dress colour on her. I thought it was the best shade of burgundy ever, with her blonde locks it looked amazing. The dress itself was great, she looked hot, but I didn’t feel that Angelina leg too much. I heard they were giving away samples of originality down at the corner shop. Well, Laverne… maybe you bag one next time.
Alicia Vickander is one of my girl crushes, and although at first I didn’t know what to think of her sequinned dress, I love it. It was a perfect match with her hair, makeup, skin, and it was a bit edgy with the patchwork. I love this girl.
Naomi Watts is one of my fave red carpet ladies, and I thought she looked fabulous in that blue dress. Now that’s how you do red carpet. Effortless and so so elegant.
Brie Larson‘s dress was definitely a love it or hate it thing, and because I’m having this flower power moment, I loved it. She had that sexy coolness about her. Few people can pull off pale blue on the red carpet, but she did. Not a wow moment, but a nice one nonetheless.
Anna Faris was very red carpet’ish. Not a bad look at all. A big look I’ll give you that, but she pulled off that colour brilliantly. Loved the high slit on that dress. Speaking of big dresses, Emilia Clarke did a big fuchsia number. I kinda liked it. I loved the deep V-cut, and the pink contrast with her fair skin. Very dramatic. Speaking of drama, Jessica Pare and Sophie Turner were both black gowned and dramatic to the core. Very very red carpet ready. While I’m not a fan of big dresses on the red carpet I loved these. I also really liked Sophie Turner’s hair.
Giuliana did something different. Not bad. She’s one of those ladies that can pretty much pull off anything. While I love her more in long red carpet dresses, I thought it was a great fashion switch this one. To keep us guessing a bit, you know, before the Oscars.
Eva Longoria… well, well, well, well… fuck me if I know how I feel about that dress. I’ll tell you this: I love the colour, especially with her skin and hair. I love how it’s really sexy in a very loose and effortless way, I love the fabric, the cut, I actually really love the dress itself (you know me… if it’s too hot and too sexy, I’m in), BUT something is off about the look, and the more I’m trying to figure out what, the more I think it has to do with her makeup. No joke here. She’s always doing her heavy smoky eyes, and really pale lips, and I think it tends to harshen her at times. You can get a great bronzed look with a balanced eyes and lips makeup, rather than those racoon eyes and no lips. Just saying.
I loved Kate Mara‘s very breezy cool look: the dress, the colour, the hair. Perfection. Julianna Marguiles looked fantastic in her white column dress. Maisie Williams OMG, she finally nailed it. Love the blue, the dress, the hem line, the hair, the makeup. Everything was beautiful.
Rachel McAdams, was very Rachel McAdams, you know. Very pretty, not very wow, but really nice dressed. Unlike her GG dress, this one looked amazing.
Jackie Cruz… well, somebody call the fire squad. Hotness. I wasn’t too sold on that fabric, but the dress looked great, and Ioved her bangs, and her boobs, and her sexiness, and how easily she pulled puff that horrible colour. Well, with girls like that who the fuck cares about colour.
Kate Winslet. Meh. She once wore a red dress with cap-sleeves, and ever since she’s doing that style over and over and over again. She did green this time. Groundbreaking. She looks beautiful but she’s turning into the Sofia Vergara of the cap-sleeves. Perfect makeup, hair, and bling though. While we’re on the meh, there’s Laura Prepon, there’s Marisa Tomei. She had a great dress on but ruined it with that stupid colour.
Sarah Hyland was very simple & very beautiful. Not very simple was Viola Davis, but that dress colour was I swear to God the best in history. I left it last so I could OMGOMGOMG over it. You know I’m not a fan of structured dresses, or ruffles, or intricate big designs, but I’m just in love with that dress.
WORST DRESSED – 2016 SAG Awards Red Carpet
January Jones got in a fight with curtains. The curtains won. What in the name of God is that? Whatever it was, Christina Hendricks followed her. Same fight. Same outcome. Perhaps a better colour, but still a no-no.
Sarah Paulson… was that a peacock resting on your upper dress? Oh, oh, oh… my bad, my bad. That was just your dress.
Poor Nicole Kidman, she was covered in puke. Oh shit, I’m sorry. That was her dress colour and print. Damn. Nicole never really did it for me on the red carpet, but the puke-dress is a first I swear.
And the worst just keep happening. Julianne Moore. I hated it. The colour, the fabric, the cut. On what planet is that a great red carpet dress? Did she pick it, eyes closed? Did she lose a bet or something?
Julia Louis Dreyfuss, whyyyy? It’s not that bad, but she’s always doing simple classic looks. Shows you to never fix it if it ain’t broken. Saoirse Ronan is such a beautiful young lady… but that dress is kinda meh. First I liked it, but then… it lost me.
I told you I’m turing normal and boring. Or maybe the stars were too cool at the SAGs this year, or maybe, here’s a wild thought – when it comes to red carpets I’m not really such a bitch.
I promise to snap out of it though.
Have a fab week my beautiful gorgeous people!
