Best of the 2017 SAG Red Carpet: Sparkle, Color and Texture

30 Jan

Award season continues and on the E! coverage last night it very much felt like there was an elephant in the room throughout the interviews. That elephant being the political climate and the immigration ban for certain countries that has brought about demonstrations at airports across the U.S. The actual SAG award show didn’t keep quiet on this matter though and Kerry Washington kicked things off with a pointed explanation as to why actors can have political opinions and with every speech there were calls for inclusion and the repeated assertion that this will not be a quiet fight.

Before we get to the usual dress rundown I just want to highlight a few of the many speeches to check out. First up was Julia Louis-Dreyfus and she set the tone, Mahershala Ali gave an important, beautiful and emotional speech and David Harbour of Stranger Things delivered some super impassioned words that took both us and Winona Ryder on a journey. I’m also so excited Hidden Figures won and Taraji P. Henson got to talk about the heroes they played and the importance of unity. And like Sarah Paulson I would suggest donating to the ACLU. For more speeches check out both the SAG and TBS YouTube channels.

And now for dresses and this red carpet was awash with bold color and sparkles; two of my favorite things. For part 2 including a lot of suits head here.yara-shahidiYara Shahidi’s Naeem Khan super colorful and striped frock is my number one look of the night; everything about this is making me smile. Shahidi told Glamour that she was excited to wear this designer as he is a Michelle Obama favorite. michelle-dockeryKeeping on this theme with Michelle Dockery in Elie Saab and another stunner. I’m not going to miss Downton Abbey clogging up the drama nominations, but I am going to miss Dockery’s regular appearances at these things as she always delivers. busy-and-michelleBest best friends and this Louis Vuitton frock is so much better than Michelle Williams’ Golden Globes number. And more stripes to add to the mix; this time dipped in metal. The jury is out on the scarf – it is a little too mid ’00s combined with the Isadora Duncan danger aspect – but it is good to see Williams stepping outside her usual twee box (which you know I love).

Busy Philipps is also keeping with the all things shiny theme in a fabulous purple Jeffrey Dodd dress.taraji-p-hensonSheer can often be the thing that turns a great dress and ruins it; not so in the case of Taraji P. Henson in Reem Acra and the rare occasion where I like this fabric choice. Loving the undercut too.tarajiPlus look at the fabulous drama on display as she moves. janelle-monaeNow this is how you do floral to the max and Janelle Monàe’s Chanel midi frock is another example of how she keeps in the black/white palette zone without it getting stalesaniyya-sidneyAll the dress points to another Hidden Figures star and Saniyya Sidney is every level of adorable. Sidney is also in Fences making that two award season movies.thandie-newtonI’m currently reading The Devil in the White City so the Ferris wheel on Thandie Newton’s Schiaparelli gown instantly makes me think of that, but this also is an incredible dress which is full of sartorial whimsy. It tells a story and is sparkly to boot.claire-foy-and-matt-smithClaire Foy and Valentino are a perfect match and this is another case of preferring this to her Golden Globes frock. Onscreen husband Matt Smith scrubs up nicely and unlike the character he plays I don’t feel the need to tell him to shut up.vanessa-kirbyAnd now for Foy’s onscreen sister and pleats make for the best twirling/shimmying material so I am all over Vanessa Kirby’s Luisa Beccaria silver halter neck. Plus Margaret is my favorite on The Crown and I am so excited that Matthew Goode has been cast to play Lord Snowdon in season 2.

And thanks to Instagram we get to see the detail of her braided updo by Adir Abergel and the beautiful hair accessory he used. This is why I love social media; finding out these extras and getting to celebrate the people behind them.

angela-sarafyan You don’t tend to see a whole lot of paisley on the red carpet and this is a shame. Thankfully Westworld’s Angela Sarafyan is bringing it back in Zac Posen.gwendoline-christieGwendoline Christie has long worn Vivienne Westwood and she mentioned Westwood’s “activist mindset” when discussing why she’s such a fan. This sequin jumpsuit is incredible and I also love that those heels are not small; Christie might be super tall already but you can always add inches. Fantastic lipstick too.viloa-and-bryceViola Davis and Bryce Dallas Howard deliver on the super fancy jewels which is an instant way to give an outfit an instant oomph. Davis also made another inspiring speech this time honoring Fences writer August Wilson. annalise-bassoOne very good reason to wear caped sleeve wings is because they give great drama as Captain Fantastic’s Annalise Basso demonstrates.captain-fantasticTeam Captain Fantastic are a delight.lily-tomlin-and-dolly-partonAll the sparkles and joy I need.

Best of the 2016 Critics’ Choice Awards Red Carpet

18 Jan

The awards shows they keep on coming and the Critics’ Choice celebration continued the Mr Robot hot streak. Plus plenty of amazing red carpet looks from those who attended last weekend’s Golden Globes and a whole host of different faces (including many beloved by TV Ate My Wardrobe).

Krysten RitterCombing one of the big trends from the Golden Globes (sparkles) with perfect for shimmying pleats; Krysten Ritter’s excellent Zuhair Murad track record continues. At the Netflix TCA panel it was announced that Jessica Jones has been renewed for a second season and I cannot wait.

Aya Cash ladysuitAya Cash stakes an early claim on #LadySuitWatch2016 in this excellent tux and gold tipped pumps.

Aya CashA clutch close up because Aya Cash’s Les Petits Joueurs should be seen in all its “AAH!” glory and last time we saw one of these fabulous Lego bags was from another award season shindig.

Judith LightJudith Light continues to work the red (blue) carpet like no other slaying in a turtleneck and jacket casually slung over her shoulders finishing it all off with a floor length (and pocketed) skirt.

Lena Waithe and Kelvin YuMore #LadySuitWatch2016 with Master of None’s Lena Waithe (posing with co-star Kelvin Yu) delivering polka dot perfection in a fun twist on this look and continuing pattern shirt dominance.

Chris GeeereThe You’re the Worst cast maybe went home empty handed, but they killed it on the red carpet. Every detail right down to the pocket square on Chris Geere’s Ted Baker ensemble is incredible.

Rachel McAdamsAnother amazing maroon dress and Rachel McAdams stands out in an Elie Saab frock which manages to make me love sheer (on this very special occasion). Love the delicate chain straps, tousled hair and bold lip color.

Kirsten DunstMore lipstick yes from another winner and Kirsten Dunst does delicate tiered sparkles in this very 20s/30s Chanel Couture frock.

Constance WuIcy blue was a big trend on the Critics’ Choice blue carpet with Constance Wu leading the pack in this ethereal Peter Langner number.

Sarah PaulsonMore sequin delights and Sarah Paulson’s Naeem Khan dress has a fun silk neckline and sleeve cap spin adding that extra something something.

SaoirseAnother recent repeat awards best dressed and another take on cornflower blue from Saoirse Ronan in Antonio Berardi. The sleeve detail is spectacular.

Eden SherThe Middle’s Eden Sher kills it in Rubin Singer and I’m so here for this fun play on black and white stripes.Constance ZimmerI love Constance Zimmer’s striped Tracy Reese dress as much as I love her reaction to winning (which I love a lot).

Carrie CoonAnother speech/winner I adore is Carrie Coon and she’s bringing the bold in blonde and a whole lot of yellow.

Zoe KazanPattern clashing at its best from Zoe Kazan and her take on the red carpet experience is worth reading in this love letter of sorts – in three parts found here, here and here – to her stylist and friend Leith Clark.

Alicia VikanderDitching delicate for fun and I am always partial to a bit of Mary Katrantzou; Alicia Vikander is the ideal person to pull this look off.

Tracee Ellis RossLooking fabulous in floral sleeved Randi Rahm and Tracee Ellis Ross demonstrates how to make a black dress stand out.Bryce Dallas HowardAs does Bryce Dallas Howard in plunging Balmain and as with her Jenny Packham frock at the Golden Globes last week she bought this off the rack (this time from Forward by Elyse Walker).

Maura TierneyPosing in front of a superb piece of fan art capturing the amazing Helen dancing in her spanx scene from The Affair is Maura Tierney working a Max Mara skirt and top with super casual fancy aplomb.

Rami Malek and Portia DoubledayDitching the tie once again, but sticking with Dior is winner Rami Malek posing with co-star Portia Doubleday (whose dress I like when you can’t tell just how sheer it is *shakes fist at this trend*) in front of the Mr Robot fan art mural.

Rami Malek and Justin TherouxIn my head they are comparing the amount of desperation, sadness, confusion and sweat levels in both of their amazing performances.

Best of the Golden Globes 2016 Red Carpet: Twinkle, Twinkle Big Star

11 Jan

Welcome to our coverage of the 2016 Golden Globes red carpet coverage and while the actual show was pretty hit and miss, the style levels did not disappoint. We’ve got quite a few posts coming and kicking things off is the big trend of the night with all that sparkles. The best thing about this other than appealing to my inner magpie is how much variety there is with this theme.

Let’s get to it and keep checking back for more posts.

Brie LarsonEven if Brie Larson hadn’t won her custom Calvin Klein is giving off all the trophy vibes in the best possible way.

Regina KingRegina King combines bold gold sequins with a cape in Krikor Jabotian and someone write a superhero part for her please. I’ve already seen this on some worst dressed lists, but I love it.

Portia DoubledayMr Robot won big much to my delight (late to the party, but I just finished it yesterday) and Portia Doubleday is going full disco ball in this stunning Naeem Khan frock.

Viola DavisMoving into the shades of blue and Viola Davis could light up a galaxy in this starry eyed Marchesa delight (not something I say very often about Marchesa).

Jenna Dewan TatumSorry Channing and your Gambit hair, it’s all about Jenna Dewan-Tatum in Zuhair Murad Couture. Also ticking those all important pocket boxes.

Bryce Dallas HowardDuring Bryan Dallas Howard’s interview on E! she revealed that she bought this beautiful Jenny Packham frock from Neiman Marcus because as a size 6 (size 10 UK) she doesn’t get all that much choice for events like this, which is sadly not surprising and maddening all the same. It does show that off the rack is just as good as the sample size offerings that other stars are privy too.

Julianna MooreJulianne Moore came with Tom Ford and is wearing Tom Ford (A Single Man rewatch is on the cards) and she looks like she has time traveled from an amazing 1970s party and is somehow making the velvet choker aspect work. She truly is magical.

Carly ChaikinMore sartorial treats from the Mr Robot cast and these ladies have been killing it this weekend with Carly Chaikin going part mermaid in iridescent Juan Carlos Obando.

Olivia WildeCustom Michael Kors for Olivia Wilde and she’s switching out emerald shimmer for burgundy and it is just as mesmerizing. There was a lot to love about Wilde’s red carpet styling in 2015 and it looks like this year is no different.

Amy AdamsRounding things out is Amy Adams offering up sparkly accents in orange Atelier Versace proving you can be a redhead and wear this shade.

Stay tuned for more Golden Globes red carpet posts and for a look at what we loved last year head here.
