The S(tylish) A(nd) G(lamorous) Awards

The Screen Actors Guild (SAG) awards were held last night, which gave me yet another opportunity to drool over some lush dresses. Throughout this awards season I have been surprised by the lack of ‘shock-horror’ moments, there have been no major fashion disasters (yet) during 2011’s awards season. Surely this points to actresses becoming more fashion savvy, and the rise in popularity of ‘celebrity stylist’ as a credible job title.

My absolute favourite at this event was Mila Kunis. The beautiful actress was stunning from head-to-toe. From her glossy chestnut waves, sultry eye make up and natural pink pout, to her bold red print Alexander McQueen dress. She was by far the best dressed at the event.

The Glee Girls looked fabulous, with Lea Michele and Dianna Agron leading the pack as always. I love Lea’s Oscar de la Renta look, in contrast to her frothy number at the Golden Globes I love the simplicity of this dress. Dianna Agron looks effortlessly elegant in her navy blue vintage Chanel dress. Jayma Mays and Heather Morris also looked lovely in their pretty girly dresses.

The women of Mad Men fail to hit the mark for me at this event. A lot of people complain about January Jones and her Versace obsession, saying that the gowns wear her and not the other way around, but I’d much prefer a controversial Versace number to this Carolina Herrera piece as I feel that it’s missing something. Christina covers up in L’Wren Scott but I feel like she fades into the background in black.

Newcomers to the A List, Jennifer Lawrence and Hailee Steinfeld (stars of Winter’s Bone and True Grit respectively) both made a colourful impact at the SAGs. Jennifer wore a bright pink Oscar de la Renta number with a black bow tied at the waist, and Hailee wore a young and fun striped number by Prada. Both of these girls are making the most of their time during awards season as they both continue to be on everyone’s Best Dressed lists. Jennifer Lawrence was my second favourite at the SAGs after Mila Kunis.

Above are a few other people who I feel the need to mention. Amy Adams stepped away from her usual choice of somber tones in this white fitted gown. Claire Danes opted for a printed Louis Vuitton number. Hilary Swank looked lovely in this Grecian style gown by Versace. Julia Stiles’ dip-die dress is gorgeous, the white looks like it is glowing. Katrina Bowden from 30 Rock showed us how fabulous blondes look when dressed in red. And, last but not least, Sarah Hyland looks simply stunning in this orange column dress which looks like it would feel so comfortable.
