Red Carpet Recap

The SAG awards were possibly the Most Boring Awards Show In the History of Award Shows. Seriously? Ya'll people ENTERTAIN for a living - that's the best you could do? For the most part, I thought the fashion was as boring as the show. Here are my spur of the moment thoughts, in no particular order (well, maybe alphabetical)...

Amanda Seyfried


Nothing earth-shattering, but it is a pretty dress, and the more I see it, the more I love that long necklace with it.

Alec Baldwin


I know Justin Bieber, and you, sir, are no Justin Bieber.

Elisabeth Moss


Very pretty. Maybe the best she has looked. I love her eye-makeup.

Eddie Redmayne


Usually he looks like a dork on the red carpet with his posing and facial expressions, but I have to hand it to him - not many men could pull off brown velvet, and he is, so HOLLA, Eddie. And also, I'm beginning to wonder if the right side of his body is dis-proportionately heavier than the left, because he is ALWAYS leaning. He's the Ginge Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Gabrielle Carteris


YOU GUYS, Ahhhhnnn-drea Zuckerman is IN DA HOUSE!!!

Julie Bowen


Gym hair with a kind of kick-ass dress.

Jessica Chastain


aka Jessica Rabbit. Not perfect, but at least it's not what she wore to the Golden Globes (that saggy-boobed mess of a dress), and it's not the same color as her skin, so I'll give her a pass.

Jenna Elfman


Jenna, GRANNIE PANTIES ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE RED CARPET!!! The best part of this photo is the creeper in the background who is throwing Blue Steel like nobody's bizness.

January Jones 

Blech. Take your Blade Runner hurr and Project Runway "Dress Fashioned From Napkin" challenge and begone.

Jane Lynch


Wowsers. I got a glimpse of this in the audience, and thought it could be cool, but now that I see it in its entirety, I just think Zena Warrior Princess.

Juliana Marguiles


Yeesh - something about those shoes with that split in the dress is not working for me. Or her. But her arms look good.

Julianne Moore



Ill-fitting and unfortunate.

Justin Timberlake 

I don't know if it's red-carpet appropriate, but DAYUM he can wear a dandy suit and pull it off.

John Slattery


Silver fox. Homina homina...

Kaley Cuoco 

Kaley, sporting dress from the dance scene in Grease, and wig from Halloween-Town

Kiernan Shipka


A-frigging-dorable. Perfection to the nth degree.

Marion Cotillard


Better version of what Juliana Marguiles was trying to pull off.

Morena Baccarin 

Creature from the Black Lagoon goes Hollywood 

Nina Dobrev

Best dress of the night. Color, cut, everything are perfect.

Noah Wyle's Date 

Don't know who she is, but like Nina Dobrev above her, this silhouette was rocking my world.

Claire Danes


Interesting dress, and more interesting makeup. And by "interesting makeup," I mean, "goth chick from 1992."

Sarah Hyland

Second favorite of the night. This color is SMASHING on her.

Sophia Vergara 

Straight up stole someone's wedding dress. That shit ain't right.

Sigourney Weaver

Oh honey, NO. So bad I don't know where to begin.

Who were your faves and least faves? Happy Monday, yo!

merci,
Shan

The one on Lynch is a breast feeding bra from the ancient Greece.

I loved your breakdown.

AN-drea Z. Hilarious! I liked Amanda S, mainly b/c of the jewels and I like navy. I haven't seen Anne H. in a full version yet, but I thought it had potential.

Paula said...

Someone needs to explain the wonders of tape to Gabrielle Carteris - she could poke an eye out with her nipple.

And why did Julia Stiles look like she put her dress on backwards?

Zahra Sandberg said...

Hahah love this - first of all who is Eddie and is Redmayne his real last name?? Also, I think the girl with Noah Wyle may be the chick from Dexter last season, i think...
I really loved Amanda Seyfried's dress - one of my faves!

Suzanne - thanks mama!! I think you're spot on with the ancient Greece theory.

Sarah - I did think Anne H.'s makeup looked very pretty, but I have such an irrational dislike for her that I just couldn't. Plus her dress was sheer on the bottom, like she forgot her slip.

Paula - Tee Hee!!!

Zahra - Eddie is in Les Mis and I never realized until I was typing up this post that his last name was Redmayne. Perfection.

what the hell Claire Danes?! She's normally perfection. The makeup looks like she hit up the MAC store and had a new hire do her face. ugh.
