SAG Awards 2014: fashion verdict

We’ve only just had the excitement of all of the stunning dresses at the Golden Globes.

However, us red carpet fans have been treated to another big fashion event this week as the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards were hosted yesterday (Saturday 19) in LA.

Now, ‘American Hustle’ took the big movie gong of the night – winning the top honour of the Screen Actors Guild award. However who won in the fashion stakes?

Find out who I thought did below…

HOT

Lupita Nyong'o - GucciI don’t think that there is anybody else that can be crowned as the winner of this fash-off, other than Lupita Nyong’o. The 31-year-old looked absolutely radiant in her Gucci gown.

Stunningly finished with an embellished flower neckline, the dress fitted Lupita to perfection, showing of her slender figure. The colour of the dress, which she also teamed as her eyeshadow shade, also looked absolutely amazing with her skin tone.

As well as winning in the style stakes, the actress also picked up  Best Supporting Actress for her role in ’12 Years A Slave’ at the awards – topping of her night perfectly.

As well as Lupita, there were also some other ladies working it on the red carpet. This included Amy Adams, who looked every inch the Hollywood starlet in her Antonio Berardi. Elisabeth Moss was also totally working it her a red Michael Kors gown, as was Jennifer Garner in her simple, yet elegant MAX MARA strapless gown and drop earrings.

Jennifer Lawrence also got it totally right at the awards, after some criticised her dress at the Globes. She was rocking a sparkling strapless Christian Dior number that totally was right for her, considering her young age.

Then we had Helen Mirren, who was totally working it for the more mature lady in her Escada number, whilst Kelly Osborne dress perfect for her shape in Zac Posen.

Check out all the photos of these stunning ladies below and see if you agree…

NOT

Mayim BialikUnfortunately there were some ladies who, in my opinion, got it a tad wrong on the night. 

My award for biggest fashion blunder has to go to ‘The Big Bang Theory’s’ Mayim Bialik, who just went totally overboard will too much lace and purple silk. I would say that maybe the outfit could have looked a bit better if she had a hair down and more done, but I don’t think I can, as that gown is just a monstrosity, I am afraid. 

Closely following Mayim is Emma Thompson. She makes a great actress, however she definitely didn’t do us Brits proud at the award’s on Saturday with her outfit choice. The star wore a vintage gown with an odd pattern on the front and also committed the worse red carpet fashion blunder possible – she wore FLATS. I mean, I am all for a pair of flats in the daytime, but this is a top awards show Emma, make a bit of an effort please!

Clare Danes also didn’t do herself any favours in her Vionnet dress, which had an oddly-coloured see-through neckline as well as garish sequins. Meanwhile Sandra Bullock looked totally uncomfortable in her Lanvin number  and Cate Blanchett‘s pink Givenchy dress just didn’t seem to fit her style whatsoever

Then finally we have Mariah Carey… well, I think the photo speaks for itself. 

Poor effort ladies, must do better next time please!

Golden Globes 2014: Fashion hits and misses

Now we all know that the Golden Globes are meant to be all about who’s down well in film and TV over the last year.

HOWEVER, true fashionistas know that it is all just about what people wear to the award’s ceremonies that is the main event.

And so… I have decided to share with you my fashion hits and misses of the night. Now, remember this is just my opinion, so don’t go getting all offended if I’ve dissed your favourite actress.

Anyways have a look a my verdicts and let me know if you agree or disagree!

HITS

The main thing that qualifies something to be a hit for me on the Golden Globes red carpet is class. I mean, it’s one of the most sophisticated and glittering events of the calendar year, so you need a dress that is going to reflect that – which I think these ladies did perfectly.

I’ve got to say, I think the overall style winner for me was Kate Bekinsale. The actress absolutely shines in her silver dress, which accentuates her curves perfectly. Lesie Mann also impressed me. Although she is wearing just black, the dress fits her like a glove and in my book, good tailoring never goes out of style.

Zoey Deschanel also stood out for me in Oscar de la Renta – working pretty old Hollywood glamour chic like only she could. I’ve also included Jennier Lawrence in my best dressed. Some critics aren’t a fan of her Dior number I’ve heard, however I think she looks radiant and style pulls off the tricky design beautifully. I’m also glad she’s not afraid to be daring with her fashion choices.

 

MISSES

So I think I’m going to have to say that my worst dressed overall is Hayden Panettiere. The actress just gets it totally wrong – making her Tom Ford gown, dare I say tacky and she’s not helping it with those pointy shoes either or the slicked back hair!

Battling for second and third place I’d say is Sandra Bullock in her three-tone disaster of a dress and Drew Barrymore. I mean, I know Drew’s pregnant, but that doesn’t mean she has to put on a tent covered in flowers! She should definitely take note of Olivia Wilde, who looked stunning in her Gucci dress (above).

Then you’ve got Reese Witherspoon, who looks like she went back to the nineties in her boring blue Calvin Klein number and Julia Roberts, who looked far too bland in Dolce & Gabbana.

I’m sorry ladies, but you’ve gotta pull out the big guns for the Globes!
