Best of the 2018 SAG Awards: Bold Color and Florals

22 Jan

More SAG Awards red carpet treats to kick-start your week. For everything that sparkles head here, below you will find a lot of florals, some strong color, plenty of couple goals and a pair that made my shipper heart all the happier. What better way to start the second part of this round-up than with Mary Steenburgen in forest green with a floral sandals peeping out from the bottom.

Why yes I did get a little teary at the end of the recent Good Place. I love that Steenburgen and Ted Danson are currently starring in two of my favorite comedies at the moment. Velvet isn’t just for suits as Felicity Huffman demonstrates in a plunging Monsoori. William H. Macy won for Shameless and this pair continues to win my heart. Everything about this shot makes my heart feel fuller. Looking great to boot; Chelsea Peretti wears Needle and Thread, Jordan Peele is in Valentino. Sterling K. Brown and Ryan Michelle Bathe have become permanent fixtures on here during award season. From tuxedo twinning at the Golden Globes to this delicate Germy Maalouf floral bodice gown. Brown won Best Actor for This is Us and looks cool af in Armani. Check out young Randall’s amazing tux here.

And he continues to give great speeches.
This is Us won Ensemble in a Drama in what was one of the big surprises of the night. While I think at times this show can be super emotionally manipulative (as the tears stream down my face), the acting is always top notch. Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Susan Kelechi Watson are all in the same shade of blue, which can’t be a coincidence.

As far as speeches go this is also a very good one as Milo Ventimiglia makes sure he thanks the production team from top to bottom. Striking a stylish tone in white and matching her TV family on the sartorial scale is Tracee Ellis Ross in Ralph & Russo. And Gucci continues to deliver stylish whimsy as demonstrated by Brie Larson in this pretty floral number. Thankfully Jane the Virgin returns this Friday (January 26), but in the meantime feast your eyes on Yael Grobglas in shoulder ruffles and Gina Rodriguez mixing delicate florals with a severe dark bodice in Rasario Resort. Orangy lips to match the orange flowers on Zoe Kazan’s Miu Miu dress and this is a great look from H to T (always channeling my inner Tyra). Last Jedi fave, Kelly Marie Tran looks stunning in Mary Katrantzou. There are so many ways to do fancy florals. This is a knockout.Queen Ann Dowd looking super regal in Escada. Bow down. A jumpsuit? A dress? Either way Sally Hawkins in chevron Dior Haute Couture is a wacky treat on this SAG red carpet.Big Little Lies sandwich of happiness.
Be still my shipper heart. Exhibit A.

Exhibit B. Great lipstick too, Winona.

Best of the 2018 SAG Awards: Sparkle Motion

22 Jan

Happy Monday! And now time for more awards. The SAG Awards is always a slightly more relaxed occasion than the Oscars, style choices reflect this because while it is still a fancy affair there is also less pressure to wear the gown. So what we get is bold ensembles often playing with color and texture.

One of the big trends so far this year has been sequins and metallics aplenty.  Check out the first part of TV Ate My Wardrobe’s SAG coverage below, which includes lots of fun pairings and group shots. Allison Janney looks like a warrior in sequined armor in custom Yanina Couture. A sleek look with dramatic shoulders to match. And in a very different, but just as effective spin on sequins is Danielle Brooks in an ombre Marc Bouwer gown.Another double delight, Lupita Nyong’o is also working the dark silver trend in Ralph & Russo complete with feathers. Yara Shahidi continues to stun in what looks like a classic black jumpsuit and tuxedo jacket.But wait! This Ralph Lauren Collection ensemble has surprise train and Shahidi is very much pulling it off. Bonus berry lipstick points too. Team Lady Bird all got the sparkle memo and have each put their own spin on it. Well, not Timothée Chalamet, but he’s got the red racing pant stripe thing working for him in Calvin Klein. Laurie Metcalf’s Sachin & Babi is the most traditional of the three and also my favorite.

Saoirse Ronan continues to switch up her look for pretty much every award show this time opting for Louis Vuitton. Studded Bottega Veneta is giving me slight ’70s vibes on Greta Gerwig, which I am of course here for.And now for another version of the metallic trend—there are so many—from Emily V. Gordon. And I really hope The Big Sick is nominated tomorrow because I would love to see a) the film get recognized and b) Emily and Kumail on that red carpet. Plaid but make it metallic. Betty Gabriel looks fantastic in Phuong My alongside Get Out co-star Bradley Whitford and his IRL gf Amy Landecker. The Stranger Things older teens (actually in their ’20s) are super coordinated with Natalia Dyer standing out in astrology inspired Christian Dior couture. Is it me or is Dacre Montgomery pulling off the pencil ‘tache? He looks like a dandy in Giorgio Armani and he managed to do up almost all his buttons.  Joe Keery keeps it classic in Saint Laurent. The really stylish member of the Stranger Things cast are the younger teens and they continue to experiment with formal fashion with aplomb. Caleb McLaughlin mixes a white Dior jacket with checked Antonio Marras pants and looks fabulous. A velvet suit is one of my favorite things, but a green velvet suit is next level and Noah Schnapp delights in Stella McCartney. And Gaten Matarazzo goes for a classic Kenneth Cole tux. *starts singing* “I believe the children are our future”

Yara Shahidi and Tracee Ellis Ross aren’t the only stylish members of the Black-ish cast; Marsai Martin in burgundy Miri Couture and Miles Brown in a MSGM tux with a floral pin tie excel at the fun formal wear. Keeping with this kids dressing better than adults theme. Sterling K. Brown is super stylish and crushes it at every event, Lonnie Chavis plays young Randall on This is Us and this Dolce & Gabbana tux might be the best of the night.Paying homage to her GLOW costuming in what turns out to not be a custom gown, but something from Dundas pre-fall 2018 collection. Brie fielded a question about allegations against her brother-in-law with grace in a moment that was unexpected from E!Rounding up the first part of this SAG rundown with the GLOW cast showing off a variety of styles; so much color and pattern. I cannot wait for season 2.
