SAG Red Carpet Roundup

I know, I know - you're all on pins and needles WAITING for our red carpet recap of the SAG Awards. Which I did not watch at all. But I DID get on Just Jared so I could spout off my armchair critique. You're welcome. Perhaps Amy will join in. Maybe not. It'll be a surprise to everyone. So here goes, wivout further adoooo, the good, the bad, and the let's just call a spade a spade.

My Favey Crocketts?

I don't know if Mila Kunis is at the top of my list because she's my number one girl crush right now, or if I really do love her look the most. Does she work wiv a stylist? I know not, but from her glorious hair to that amazing red dress, I could eat her up.

January Jones gets about half right on the red carpet, and half verrrry wrong, but luckily this is in the former category. It is perfection. I love love love the gold and black combo, and she is sleek as a seal in this. Yummy.
Hailee Steinfeld has thus far knocked my socks off on the red carpet. She looks spot frigging on in this. Love the colors, love her hair, it is age appropriate, and awesome sauce. The end.

And the award for Thank God, she FINALLY got it right goes to Tina Fey. Poyfect. The end.
This is a Sharon Stone a la Casino, Michelle Pfeiffer in Scarface, 70s disco fabulous hybrid, and I just died. Thanks a lot, Lea Michelle.
Sarah Hyland could be Mila Kunis' younger sis, and the color, the simple chic column, and her hair just made me pee myself.
Did NOT love Natalie Portman's pink and red ode to Valentine at the Golden Globes, so I'm thankful she made up for it in this. Girlfriend is gorgeous.
Also loving Mindy Kahling in this white Grecian draped number, and hells YES I love that Wonder Woman belt.
Julie Bowen, THANK YOU for wearing this exce-frigging-lent sexaaaay tuxedo on the red carpet. I just wish you would've hemmed those pants a teensy bit. And maybe worn some bigger cuffs on yo arms.
Jayma Mays, loves that apricot color with her coloring, and the relatively simple cut and drape are fantastic. Or fans-tastic, if you're Aaahnold Schwarzenegger. And no, I am NOT looking up the correct spelling of his name. YOU know who I'm talkin bout, Willis.
Palate cleanser. The more I see Jessie Eisenberg, the more my slightly inappropriate crush grows. Who knew?

And now to the not so great.

Jenna Fischer - it's not turrible, it's just meh. And she is so adorable, plus she's originally from St. Louis, which makes me love her as a fellow midwesterner. I just wish there was more there there, know what I mean?

Amy Pohler - let's get one thing straight - I love you. You rock. You are effing HILARIOUS. I am hoping you can explain this dress to me, which, while nice enough for a day job at an accounting firm, is not quite right for a RED CARPET EVENT. Come ON. Step it up. You've been warned.

Let's move on to the downright dismal, shall we?

Christina Hendricks, I am aware that you are a curvy woman who looks more like the average American woman than 99.9 percent of the other celebrities presented, but what is the meaning of this Elvira Goes to Vegas getup? The hair is not doing it for me, and the makeup? LORD HAVE MERCY, the makeup? I shudder.

Nicole Kidman - this is a joke, right? WHAT ARE YOU WEARING AROUND YOUR NECK? I get that you suddenly had a baby that no one knew about so you are probably knackered beyond belief, what with your nannies needing to take care of TWO chillruns now, but surely, based on past photographic evidence of your prowess on the red carpet, there is a better excuse for this "moment" (thank you, Rachel Zoe, for the terminology). Or lack thereof.

Merci!

Mila Kunis and Hailee Steinfeld...loooove em!

JJ loved the dress and the makeup but wasn't wowed by the hair:(

Natalie Portman looked beautiful but once again wasn't crazy about the hair.

Seriously, Christina Hendricks and Nicole Kidman...why? just why?

Let's offer our services to Christina Hendricks - she is a bombshell but no one can seem to dress her. It's like no one in Hollywood can figure out how to style up a woman who's more than a size 2. The shoes are just GAH-YUK! Sweet LORD! This also applies to Amy Pohler as well, I dont' think anyone can figure out a post-baby body so they just hit up Ann Taylor. I SWEAR!

BTW is it just me or does Winona Ryder look like a crazy loon?
