Red Carpet Recap: SAGs

Wow - this show managed to be boring, cheesy and pretentious all wrapped up in one pooptacular package. The fashion, however, was at least more exciting than the Golden Globes. Let's taste the rainbow, shall we?

The Good:

Julie Bowen's dress was weird, yet totally cool at the same time. I thought it looked better on screen than in photos, but I still really loved it. I am also pretty sure we would be BFFs if we were ever to meet in real life.

J Law has not been wowing me with her red carpet wear lately, but she was ON POINT with this number. From the funky hair to the makeup to that gorgeous sequin column, this was pretty much perfection.

Speaking of perfection, is there anything Lupita Nyong'o CAN'T wear? She is seriously racing to the top of everyone's style chart, for good reason. This turqwaaaaz color is amazing on her, and I loved her makeup with it. I didn't love it as much as that white Calvin Klein that she wore to the Critics' Choice awards, but she is still a goddess in it. Let's have a moment of silence for the Calvin Klein, why don't we?

See? I tode you.

I have no idea who Lena Headey is, but I DIG her dress.

I have loved Rita Moreno ever since The Electric Company, and her acceptance speech and subsequent impromptu songs actually made me tear up. I personally think her jacket (which is fan-fucking-tastic) is actually too much with the dress, but they - and she - are both so incredible I will forgive her for it.

Ahhhh, Queen Helen - you KILLED.

Cate Blanchett's dress REALLY looked better on camera - it was breathtaking - but looks slightly schlumpy in photos. Still, she is gorgeous and amazing.

Sandy Bullock has done such a 180 on the red carpet lately. This emerald was SICK and WRONG on her, in the best way possible.

After Anna Gunn's completely flesh-toned dress at the last awards, this is 110% better. 

Most excellent use of Accessories goes to....Anna Gunn!!

The Middle of the Road

I am in deep love with Aaron Paul, still in the midst of binge-watching Breaking Bad - Netflix - come ON with the last eight episodes!!! You're really going to make me wait until February 24?!!! Maybe it's the lighting in this photo, but the bottom half of Aaron Paul looks like Aaron Paul's mom. Don't those slacks look weirdly like ladies slacks? And the shoes? I love the design, but almost feel like a chunkier sole would make them look more masculine. They're just slightly off. Still, he is adorable - no denying that.

Who knew Jesus had a tuxedo?!!!

Oh Emma Thompson - the more I see you oot and aboot in these silly awards' ceremonies, the more I love you. I just can't figure out what is going on with the bottom of your dress. I feel almost like if it were wide-legged pants, I could get on board with it.

The Wow. Just Wow.

When did I decide I could no longer stand Julie Roberts? I don't know, but it's true. She's just so damn SMUG all the time (a bit of trivia for you - the male version of Julia Roberts in my head is Kevin Spacey - SMUG). Blech. And this look, which was schlumpy to begin with, is actually a PANTSUIT. I CANNOT.

Amanda Peet - are you f@#king with us in this dress? 

While Kerri Washington's head looked GORGEOUS, the rest of her...

No. Nope. Nada. Thanks for playing, please try again. 

So much is wrong with Mayim Bialik's dress that I don't know where to begin. Is it the black widow's lace jacket that she apparently stole from the Old Timey Photo Booth at the local amusement park? The awkward fit of the dress underneath? The high-low hem? Her makeup does look nice - I'll give her that, but I cannot sign off on ANYTHING else.

I think the girl throwing side-eye in the background says everything we need to say about this look. 

So did you watch the SAG's? Who were your faves and least faves? Hit it, kids!

Okay you were spot on with your notes here. What the heck happened with Kerry? What a cluster -- and Miyam was so cute at the GGs now a disaster...Don't get me started on Miriah Carey. I loved Sandra, Lupita and J Law the best! This was fun. Thanks for the recap. Totally missed the whole thing!
