Last night’s SAG Awards did not disappoint, it had all of the awards show standards: humor, tear-jerking speeches, shameless self promotion, inspirational quotes, sound flubs and stumbles. The ladies on the red carpet did not disappoint either – it was tough to narrow down the looks to just four. But these choices all have a common thread – fantastic fit and fabric.
Jennifer Aniston was stunning in vintage Galliano. Its simple shape and body skimming fabric hugs her without being too tight. The long Y-necklace and her signature hair perfectly highlight the plunging neckline.
I could not stop thinking about Sophia Bush in Vivienne Westwood. The burnt orange, structured satin was unbelievable on her. A sweetheart neckline, corset bodice and draped fabric accentuated her in all the right places. Her old hollywood hairstyle and statement earrings were flawless.
Ahh, Julianna Marguiles in Giambattista Valli. It really needs no explanation. The high neckline and full skirt tempered with a high slit, minimal accessories, simple center part and a blue so rich you can’t take your eyes off of it – absolutely breathtaking.
Joanne Froggatt in Honor was staggering. What’s so impressive about a black ball gown, right? When it’s this dress, everything. The exaggerated sweetheart neckline and precisely-fit mermaid shape was gorgeous on her petite frame. She keeps the accessories simple and shows off the dress’s neckline with side swept, loose curls.
And since I make Suede watch awards shows with me, here’s his favorite line from the SAG Awards –
