Last night's Red Carpet finally presented us with some achievable creativity and color to beat the band! If the Globes were all about metallic hues, then the SAG Awards flipped the script and brought a rainbow of pizzazz and even pattern.
"Game of Thrones" actress Natalie Dormer wins my Best Dressed of the night in her beautifully painted Naeem Khan gown. I'm such a sucker for a painterly print but everything about this dress was right on her. Those gorgeous purples, corals and pale pinks looked lovely with her complexion and hair. I couldn't tell if this gown was actually white or pale gray but regardless, her look was sweet and demure and a nice change in pace from gowns we've seen of late.
In a close second to Dormer's painted print comes "The Theory of Everything" star Felicity Jones in her sugary sweet pink Balenciaga. If you haven't seen her film yet, you will fall in love with her after you see her performance. She delivered in her role as Jane Hawking and she also delivered us some high fashion last night. Selecting Best Dressed was a tough decision because she is such perfection. Keeping with the sweet vibe were Reese Witherspoon in Giorgio Armani and Kiera Knightley in Erdem. Witherspoon's figure looked amazing in her asymmetrical white gown. I love that it had a bit of a cap sleeve. Knightly redeemed herself from the Chanel catastrophe at the Globes with this gorgeous tiered eyelet gown. Loved everything about her look last night!
We also saw a lot of contrasting bodice gowns where the tops of the dresses had some sort of embellishment and fabric differentiation from the skirt. Sarah Hyland rocked the look in Vera Wang with gorgeous stones sewn in to the top of her daring plunged top. She always looks so fresh and like she is having so much fun. Natasha Lyonne did it with metallic embroidery and a heavy black skirt in this Proenza Schouler number. If she didn't have so much attitude, I might not like this dress as much...
Finally, we saw more pattern and even a respectable risk on the Red Carpet. I love Rashida Jones's Emanuel Ungaro dress with the contrasting blue piping. I actually feel like this dress is something people would throw on here to go to the beach. Maybe it was a little casual for a Red Carpet event but I still thought she looked fabulous in it. "Orange is the New Black" star and SAG Award winner Uzo Aduba looked AMAZING in her Angel Sanchez gown. The color and the fabric are so interesting. With her very simple hair and makeup, it was the perfect amount of complexity. Loved this risk!
Who were your favorites from last night? I can't wait to hear whose look you loved!
