Best of the 2015 SAG Awards – Black, White and Shimmer

26 Jan

Welcome to Part 2 of the SAG Awards coverage and while color was a big trend there was plenty of fantastic black, white and sparkly gowns on display. Check out our faves below.

Viola DavisViola Davis won for How to Get Away with Murder and did so in a stunning custom MaxMara halter gown in one of the best looks of the night.

Sarah PaulsonA surprising turn from Sarah Paulson in black and white Giorgio Armani. Surprising in that it manages to look different to a lot of other red carpet attire without landing in the usual ‘huh’ spot Paulson favors.

Joanne FroggattJoanne Froggatt does the whole black mermaid gown thing but what elevates this Honor gown is the pointed bodice.

Lorelei LinklaterA very different black Honor gown for Lorelei Linklater and I love the gothy vibe and bell sleeves. This looks like something April Ludgate would wear to an awards show and I cannot wait to see what Lorelei will wear to the Oscars (and what color hair streak she opts for). Bonus red lip color points also awarded.

Maggie GyllenhaalMaggie Gyllenhaal’s custom Thakoon white gown is very Nessa Stein and I love that her Honourable Woman character’s style is sneaking in on this red carpet.

Chelsea PerettiNew favorite couple alert! Chelsea Peretti’s midnight blue Rubin Singer gown has a gold shimmer and Jordan Peele’s all black suit perfectly complements the look without going matchy matchy.

Amy Poehler and Natasha LyonneAnother perfect pair and both are going for the beaded sparkle thing with Amy Poehler in Jenny Packham and Natasha Lyonne in custom Proenza Schouler. Fun shenanigans look like they are being had.

Reese WitherspoonOff the shoulder was a big trend at the SAGs with plenty opting for color and asymmetric; Reese Witherspoon avoids looking bridal in custom Giorgio Armani adding sparkle with the sequin diagonal strip.

Kelly Macdonald and Gretchen MolBoardwalk Empire ladies reunion and Kelly Macdonald’s black vintage Moschino is how you do a shorter length at an event like this, even if it does look slightly casual next to Gretchen Mol in an ethereal Dennis Basso silver gown.

Jackie CruzAnother custom Christian Siriano frock for an Orange is the New Black actress and Jackie Cruz is a sequinned gold beauty.

Emmy RossumThis photo doesn’t quite convey how much sparkle there is on Emmy Rossum’s Swarovski crystal infused Armani Privé gown, but she looks stunning nonetheless.

Nikolaj Coster-WaldauSwitching to a couple of fine looking dudes and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau wears a tuxedo as well as he does a suit of armor.

Eddie RedmayneDoing the lean! And this time Eddie Redmayne’s choice of suit is a Prada double breasted affair; another super charming approach and style win.

Best of the 2015 SAG Awards – Color and Print

26 Jan

The SAG Awards is a slightly more relaxed affair; it is still fancy frock aplenty but you can tell that some are holding back for the Oscars. Well not everyone as the TV nominees are done until the Emmys and not every SAG nominee is going to the Oscars. There was plenty of color on the red carpet continuing the Golden Globes trend and here is Part 1 of TV Ate My Wardrobes favorite SAG looks.

Lupita SAGWhen Lupita Nyong’o arrived in this stunning Elie Saab gown she pretty much shut the whole thing down and this is by far the crowning moment of the red carpet. The color, the stripes, makeup and hair are all incredible; Lupita remains the style queen even when she isn’t nominated. I cannot wait for the Star Wars press tour at the end of this year.

Julianne MooreRed hair and emerald is always a winning combination and Julianne Moore has gone for another Givenchy Couture beauty with this beaded delight.

Kiera KnightleyDeep purple really suits Keira Knightley as does this somewhat boho Erdem dress.

Julianna MarguliesOpinion was split regarding Julianna Margulies’ cobalt-blue Giambattista Valli super draped skirt and I am very much on the love it side. It didn’t photograph well from certain angles, but I adore the color and how dramatic it looks.

Jennifer Aniston and Justin TherouxJennifer Aniston has relaxed a lot since she didn’t get an Oscar nomination – the hair is down, the cleave is on show – and this vintage John Galliano goes full plunge while avoiding her usual black gown favoring. Justin scrubs up rather well too.

Claire DanesHere’s another dress that had a mixed reception and it might be my well documented Claire Danes blindness as I think she is totally working this khaki green Marc Jacobs dress; barnacle side beading and all.

Rashida JonesThe blue piping/belting combined with the bold print make this a style win for Rashida Jones in Emanuel Ungaro.

Lorraine ToussaintPockets! And an amazing printed skirt from Lorraine Toussaint.

Maisie Williams and Sophie TurnerSpeaking of pockets; Maisie Williams is a lady after my own heart as she tweeted “DRESS POCKETS ARE IMPORTANT & DONT LET ANYONE TELL YOU OTHERWISE” (all caps are her own but I support the emphasis). This super cute red dress does have pockets and Williams’ on screen sibling Sophie Turner has a fantastic pair of heart heels to go with her chic black gown.

Danielle BrooksThis is beautiful from Danielle Brooks in a navy custom Christian Siriano working old Hollywood glamour with aplomb.

Melissa FumeroOff the shoulder blue frocks were on trend and here is another excellent take with Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Melissa Fumero in Maxime Simoens.

Lauren LapkusRounding off the blues with Orange is the New Black’s Lauren Lapkus. Also passing the now patented Maisie Williams pocket test.

OITNBAnd speaking of Orange is the New Black – how great is this shot of the cast on stage taking home Ensemble in a Comedy Series?!
