Red Carpet: SAG Awards 2015 – Best Dressed

So this award season hasn’t really blown me away, the Golden Globes and the Critics’ Choice Awards were OK, there were a few standout looks but nothing to be honest that you would remember for years to come, and it seems the SAG Awards held the same fate, the red carpet was filled with “nice” gowns. But for me nice doesn’t really have a place on the red carpet, I want to see drama, high fashion risks and creative designs. The only thing I can hope for is that all the major fashion houses are holding back on their gorgeous gowns for the Oscars next month, otherwise this could be one of the most disappointing award seasons on record.

OK, so I am being a little over dramatic, I just love the award season red carpet so much, it rivals Cannes for exquisite gowns and I love it when my favourite actresses really bring it. Normally I am a huge fan of the SAG Awards red carpet, mainly because the big stars seem more relaxed and happy to be there, but I felt last night the award show was missing some big A-list names that always kill it in the fashion stakes such as Diane Kruger, Kate Hudson, Jennifer Lawrence, Emily Blunt and Jennifer Lopez.

Saying all that I did love some looks, namely Emma Stone, Julianne Moore and Reese Witherspoon, who actually made the Golden Globes red carpet as well, there were also some great choices by Downton Abbey girls Joanne Froggatt and Laura Carmichael, as well as some stunning Donna Karen Atelier gowns worn by Camila Alves and Sofia Vergara, plus some improved outings from Kaley Cuoco, Keira Knightley and Felicity Jones, all of which grace my red carpet Pinterest board, but I have to confess I was still a little underwhelmed by Jennifer Aniston’s vintage Galliano gown, which no doubt everyone else is raving about, for me is was a little too much boob, but I do think her body is looking better than ever.

So here you have it my five best dressed ladies from the 2015 SAG Awards:

Emma Stone in Christian Dior Couture

I am really enjoying seeing Emma Stone have a lot of fun on the red carpet and I love how she really brings a menswear-inspired edge to proceedings. I loved her Golden Globes Lanvin look but this Dior Couture tuxedo-style dress with a sheer skirt and sweeping train really makes that outfit look boring. I love that she went for drama, sex appeal and fun in her look and as always she is the coolest girl in town. I really think that her partnership with stylist Petra Flannery is on fire and I have high expectations for the Oscars.

Julianne Moore in Givenchy Couture

I am loving Julianne Moore’s love affair with Givenchy, they really do seem like a team made for one another, and this is another gorgeous gown. OK, so this isn’t the most original look, a redhead wearing green, or Julianne wearing sequins or a column gown, but saying all that I still love its drama and the fact it made a statement on last night’s SAG Awards red carpet when most did not.

I know some people on Twitter were saying that they wish she had done something more with her hair but I love that she has this minimalistic vibe when it comes to her hair and make-up, plus I adore those purple stone earrings she is wearing.

Reese Witherspoon in custom Giorgio Armani 

There is something about Reese Witherspoon on the red carpet, she doesn’t always go for the edgiest of designs or even the raciest, but she always looks incredible, and I love this white custom Giorgio Armani gown. White for me on the red carpet can sometimes seem too bridal or not very flattering but there is something so elegant about this one-shoulder design with its matte sequin detailing along the neckline and shoulder that makes it beautiful.

Add to that her flawless body, stunning hair and make-up, I am a huge fan of a ponytail done right on the red carpet, and all those sparkling Harry Winston jewels and it really does make for a gorgeous look and did you see the back – that scoop is pure perfection.

Camila Alves in Donna Karen Atelier

Donna Karen really had a great SAG Awards with Emilia Clarke, Sofia Vergara and Camila Alves all looking absolutely stunning, and I am sure for most Sofia will get the best dressed nod because she wasn’t wearing a stiff-looking mermaid-style gown, but for me Camila Alves looked a knockout in this strapless aubergine gown that was tailored to perfection to show off her incredible body.

If this gown had been in black, like a lot of looks were last night, I would have been bored – it is the colour of this dress, as well as her beauty that really makes this a standout look of the night for me.

Laura Carmichael in Vionnett

For my fifth and final best dressed star it was a hard choice between Downton Abbey stars Laura Carmichael and Joanne Froggatt, who did look radiant in Honor, but I think Laura’s subtle sexy and daring choice in Vionnett with its sheer and patterned skirt deserved the space that little bit more.

What I love about this look is how different and modern this look is, she took a risk and it paid off, and I am so pleased that she resisted the temptation to over style it as the dress really does speak for itself. I am sure this look will split opinions but I love it.

SAG Awards: Nina Dobrev In Elie Saab

nina-dobrev-elie-saabWho: Nina Dobrev 

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A sleek Barbie pink Elie Saab gown featuring subtle sheer-lace cut-outs from the ready-to-wear spring/summer 2013 collection, teamed with a thin belt, Neil Lane jewels, a bejewelled Judith Lieber box clutch, and Jimmy Choo heels

Verdict: I love it when young actresses shine on the red carpet, I love it even more when they wear bright colours, and I am super pleased when it is Elie Saab!!! Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev was my best dressed last night at the SAG Awards as she looked absolutely incredible in this simple-yet-chic Elie Saab gown.

I was trying to pin down why I loved it so much, of course the Barbie pink shade was always going to get my vote, but even though I love a Princess dress I really love that this has a sporty vibe with the t-shirt sleeves, and I just couldn’t shake how much it kind of reminded me of the simple Calvin Klein dress that Jennifer Lawrence wore to the Oscars in 2011.

But what this look has is the touch of sexy glamour with the sheer lace cut-outs and the sparkly box clutch and those gorgeous Neil Lane drop earrings. This minimalistic gown teamed with sparkling accessories was the perfect combination to add to Nina’s natural beauty and incredible body – this look is when the dress + styling + star work perfectly together and I love it.

Do you love this look as much as I do?

SAG Awards: Naomi Watts In Marchesa

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A strapless silver-embroidered lace column Marchesa gown, teamed with Fabergé jewels, and a silver box clutch

Verdict: Best Old Hollywood glamour award most certainly goes to Naomi Watts she looks lovely in this Marchesa gown.

The intricate detailing in this gown is incredible and it really shimmered beautifully on camera and it works perfectly with her sideswept wavy locks.

This is just one beautiful look.

SAG Awards: Amanda Seyfried In Zac Posen

amanda-seyfried-sag-awards

Who: Les Miserables actress Amanda Seyfried

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A form-fitting strapless midnight blue Zac Posen gown with a sweetheart neckline and cascading tiered layers to the skirt from the pre-fall 2013 collection, teamed with a vintage-inspired Lorraine Schwartz pendant

Verdict: I do love a mermaid silhouette, and for once it seems that hardly anyone went for this shape even Sofia Vergara opting for something different, so it was nice to see Amanda Seyfried’s gown getting all the attention.

Like with Jennifer Lawrence and Nicole Kidman midnight blue was the colour of the night, along with black, and I think a lot of people will be comparing this to Jennifer’s Dior Couture gown, and I think I have to give this fashion round to Amanda this dress just looked incredible on her.

Not only does this dress fit her perfectly, I love the drama of the sculptural tiers on the skirt, the colour against her skin, and the quirky pendant – this is one great look without looking too forced.

Do you rate Amanda’s red carpet look?

SAG Awards: Nicole Kidman In Vivienne Westwood

nicole-kidman-sag-awardsWho: Nicole Kidman

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A midnight blue Vivienne Westwood Couture ‘Marlene’ column gown covered in floral appliqués, a sheer neckline and a thigh-high split, teamed with Fred Leighton jewellery and black strappy heels

Verdict: Wow, Nicole Kidman keeps on surprising me with her red carpet looks, at the Golden Globes I loved her Alexander McQueen and I think I prefer this midnight blue Vivienne Westwood just because of how sexy it is.

I love the exquisite beaded embroidery, the sheer panelling, and then the thigh-high split – Nicole really knows how to wear a column dress and this is the best I have seen her in a while.

However, as much as I love her gown, jewels, and choice of heels, I would have loved her to have done more with her hair, I like it sleek straight but I don’t love it I wish she had put it up and showed off the neckline of this dress more.

What do you think of Nicole’s look?

SAG Awards: Michelle Dockery In Chado Ralph Rucci

michelle-dockery-sag-awardsWho: Michelle Dockery

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California

Wearing: A black satin vintage Chado Ralph Rucci gown featuring sheer trim and cut-out detailing to the sides, teamed with a black and gold clutch, and a gold Bulgari bracelet

Verdict: It seems that black with sheer panels or cut-outs was a theme last night at the SAG Awards, and Michelle Dockery’s was simple in design but stunning and I love how it was teamed with gold accessories.

I think for some this dress with its side-boob sheer panels might be a little too much to handle for someone who plays the prim Lady Mary, but come on folks that is just a character I actually love that she was a little daring.

What I adore the most about this look has to be Michelle’s gorgeous hair-do, which represented another trend last night, the faux bob – a classy hair style that really suits her.

SAG Awards: Kerry Washington In Rodarte

Kerry Washington, Rodarte, SAG AwardsWho: Kerry Washington

Where: At the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards held at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles

Wearing: A strapless white silk tulle Rodarte gown featuring an embellished bodice with Swarovski Elements and silver lace around the hemline and back, teamed with a silver Judith Leiber clutch, white Christian Louboutin heels, and jewellery from Fred Leighton

Verdict: Kerry Washington is fast becoming on of my favourite red carpet stars as I just don’t know what she is going to wear, and like Diane Kruger she seems to have an ability to wear near enough anything and look incredible.

This Rodarte gown was not only stunning on her but a little unexpected, which is probably why it was one of my favourite looks from the SAG Awards red carpet. Normally white gowns don’t work for me on the red carpet, but this dress has an edgy quality with the structured embellished bodice, which is complemented nicely with the soft lace-trimmed skirt.

Finishing off her gorgeous look were stunning diamond jewels from Fred Leighton, I love her ’50s platinum drop earrings and that metallic Judith Leiber box clutch is perfection. Then add in her flawless make-up and up-do and this for me is a perfect red carpet look.
