Screen Actors Guild Awards 2011: Fashion Recap

31 Jan

Fashions fade; style is eternal. – Yves Saint Laurent

To continue the trend of award show fashion recaps, it’s time for the next round of dresses, which were on parade at the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Awards last night. In all honesty, I was less than impressed with the dresses, making it easy for me to find six standouts.  Unlike the gowns for the Golden Globes, many of these dresses spotlighted great prints and bright colors, reminding us that springtime is just around the corner (I hope!).  When I wasn’t falling in love with these fabulous fabrics, I was drawn to neutral colors – black or blush.

As I did with the Golden Globes (and to further confirm my poor decision-making skills), I’m sticking with my six favorite fashion moments for the SAG Awards. And here we go!

6. Angie Harmon radiates happiness in this feathery concoction by Monique Lhuillier. It’s my fashion dream to wear a dress by this designer, and I know that I’d be as giddy as Angie in this frock.

5. Nicole Kidman is the epitome of sophistication in her Nina Ricci gown.  The lace cutouts and jeweled neckline add just enough mystery and sparkle to her look. I’m usually not a fan of the dresses that Nicole wears, but I think she knocked it out of the park with this one.

4. Mila Kunis rocked a mainly-red print dress by Alexander McQueen.  The color looks outstanding with her olive complexion and smoldering eyes. Plus, her wavy hair complements the sweetheart neckline and flowing frock, creating a look that appears effortless.

i much prefer this look to Mila's green Golden Globes gown...

3. Fashion darling Louise Roe confirms that it’s never too early to wear breezy pastels.  The baby blue and purple print of this Tadashi Shoji one-shouldered dress really pops against the red carpet. Her neat updo and unfussy accessories prove that she’s anything but a Plain Jane.

2. Of course, Lea Michele was one of my best-dressed picks. A girl can’t go wrong in Oscar de la Renta, and she proves it time and time again.  Departing from her propensity for big ball gowns, she picked a sexier number that really suited her tiny figure.  Her simple hair and make-up are a perfect pairing.

1. Talk about a 180° difference from her Golden Globes look! Breaking from her trend of going with structural, bright-hued dresses (usually by Versace), January Jones chose an understated black-and-gold mermaid gown by Carolina Herrera. With her sweeping updo and muted make-up, she looks absolutely stunning and oh-so-ladylike. By far my favorite look of the night!

January's dress is beyond fabulous yet again!
