They say “you can’t go wrong with a little black dress”, but you can. You can also go really wrong with a long black dress. See who got it right and who got it wrong on the red carpet this past Sunday for the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards.
I like to think that Tina Fey read my post about her for the Golden Globes two weeks ago because she ixnayed another fluffy gown in favor of sleek and sexy Versace! I love the smooth black gown she wore with the draping metallic ombré bodice. With black peep toe sandals and a chic bouffant hairstyle with diamond and onyx drop earrings — she looked amazing. The “30 Rock” star also carried a sparkling glitter silver clutch.
“Glee” actress Heather Morris opted for an off-the-shoulder leather trim Masai Payan mini dress that was connected to a black sheer long skirt with side slits. I really like this dress as an LBD, but I can’t get on board with the rest of it. Furthermore she needed strappy silver or black sandals; her python metallic Giuseppe Zanotti slingback pumps are simply way too heavy. Her voluminous curls were pulled back to show off her bold earrings and the neckline of her dress.
Oh no Amber Riley, what happened? She looked insanely awesome at the Globes and I’m all for having fun with fashion but… that bow. I wish she had opted for a less distracting and a much more flattering look for her. If the dress had been full length and the bow wasn’t there, I still don’t think I would have loved this — but… that bow.
“Albert Nobbs” star Glenn Close was working those tulle ruched sleeves on her Zac Posen gown and I’m digging that bustier sweetheart neckline. Sadly, as was the case for many stars earlier this month — that fishtail skirt was too hard for her to manipulate down the red carpet.
Here’s the Tilda Swinton I know and love! Gone was her Mother-of-the-Bride look from before as she walked the SAG red carpet in this custom made off-white gathered jersey goddess gown with articulated shoulder by Alber Elbaz for Lanvin. I feel like she needed a belt, but I’m just happy to see her working this. Tilda finished off her look with a red lippe, a brilliant metallic gold cuff and a bronze platform sandals with wood cone heel from Lanvin‘s Ete 2012 collection.
Am I the only one who thought Gretchen Mol was wearing an ivory crop top and skirt over a yellow textured dress at the SAG’s? I mean, what was going on with this L’Wren Scott design? I’m just confused as to why this was her number one choice.
Judy Greer selected a white lace cap-sleeve gown by Collette Dinnigan that seriously — I’m not joking one bit — looked like a wedding dress. It’s a beautiful bridal gown, but it’s not a something I would ever consider wearing to an award show. On top of that she’s wearing red lipstick and carrying a bright pink clutch. What?
“30 Rock” actress Katrina Bowden just got recently engaged and like Judy Greer she was obviously in the mindset of her big day when she got dressed for this show. Don’t get me wrong, her Amsale couture strapless champagne sheath gown with a floral beaded tulle overlay was gorgeous. It was just also wedding bell reminiscent. Thankfully, she accessorized with an accomdating clutch and wore her long blonde locks in beautiful big curls.
