SAG Awards 2013 Red Carpet

Monday, January 28, 2013

I'm back for red carpet commentary SAG Awards 2013! There were a few standouts, but most dresses were once again quite uninspired. Fortunately, there weren't too many bad dresses on the SAG Award red carpet. Quite a few actresses really embraced black, but if you wear a black gown, it better be the most spectacular black dress in the world.  

Anne Hathaway's Giambattista Valli dress got some mixed reactions, but I personally love black and sheer and tulle and I think this dress is just so charming. Maybe we see too much leg, so I would have preferred a thicker tulle skirt. And I wish her hair was slicked down like that time (minus wardrobe malfunction.)

I just think Julianne Moore can do no wrong and she just looks like a goddess in this Chanel Haute Couture black and white floral gown. I personally would have preferred if it wasn't so low cut, but this lady has a great figure - so why not show it off I guess! This dress just has so much personality. I think Ms. Moore must be on a black and white kick right now.

Naomi Watts just looks so elegant and statuesque in this shimmering Marchesa gown. It's a simplistic gown, but she looks so radiant and ethereal and it's making her skin gown. She just looks like an Old Hollywood actress with those retro waves.

I actually really like Claire Danes black and white Givenchy one sleeved gown with geometric pattern. I'm not a fan of one sleeved gowns, but it works on her. I just think this is probably one of the better gowns she has ever worn. I love the geometric shapes, I love the graphic quality. It's fun and whimsical. And I love the dark lips.

I'm still mad that Jessica Chastain has yet to impress me with her red carpet looks. Supposedly she had a good year last year, but so far, I am just bored. Sure this is an Alexander McQueen, but I can't stand satin and red satin is just worse. And I don't think redheads can't wear red, but it has to be the perfect shade of red and in that case, she should be consulting Valentino.

I hate to be mean, but why is January Jones wearing a white bib? Is she about to go to Red Lobster? I don't understand this Prabal Gurung gown. I like high necks, but this dress is confused. And I like Prabal Gurung gowns. The white bib, high neck with her pompadour hair = overkill. Just wrong.

Jennifer Lawrence is starting to get it. I was sorely disappointed and disgusted by her Golden Globes dress, but this is going in the right direction. It's flattering, it's safe, but at least she looks nice. The hair looks polished, but relaxed at the same time. Now you better find something stunning for the Oscars, because you keep picking up these awards and if you win on Oscars night, you would want to wear a memorable dress! Can't believe the poor girl had a wardrobe malfunction. How much does these gowns cost, seriously? They can't afford to be ripping! (even if someone stepped on it)

A bit disappointed in Marion Cotillard's Dior Haute Couture gown. I don't really like empire waist gowns and the white just looks like a bandage around her chest. I do like the deep peacock blue/teal color, but that's about it. Random thought: are people afraid of wearing lighter blue or blue green shades on the red carpet or what?!

So Ellie Kemper is wearing a seafoam green Reem Acra gown, but I think this is probably the worst Reem Acra gown I've seen. I don't understand this dress, I really don't, sorry. I love seafoam green and I was so proud when Missi Pyle wore it to the Oscars last year. This color needs more attention and presence on the red carpet!

I'm sorry but I don't understand or like Sofia Vergara's Donna Karan gown. I enjoy an asymmetrical dress, but this to me is a huge mess. It makes her boobs look lopsided and what woman wants to look like her boobs are lopsided!!! I like that it seems to be Grecian inspired, but I cannot forgive that neckline.

I find Rose Byrne's Valentino floral gown is be so whimsical and a daring choice. I love Valentino and I would wear a Valentino gown in a heartbeat. I love that this dress makes her stand out from everyone else and of course in a good way, in my opinion. It reminds me of the Valentino gown Michelle Williams wore to the Golden Globes in 2011.

Once I kickstart my film career, I'm totally getting into acting and applying to SAG, so I can vote! We'll see, whatever haha. DGA Awards 2/2, BAFTA Awards 2/10, WGA Awards 2/17, Independent Spirit Awards 2/23 and Academy Awards 2/24! I love Award Season!

  1. Loving these red carpet fashion reviews! I can't wait for the Oscars and the BAFTAs (though I have no idea how I'm going to watch the BAFTAs since they're not on any channels I have).
