Awards Season Fashion Fizzle: SAG Awards
At last night’s SAG Award’s stars continued their awards season march down the red carpet towards the Academy Awards, and while traditionally the glamour wattage rises from Golden Globes to Directors Guild to SAG to the coveted Oscar… this year the styling seems to be all over the place. From full-length, to tea length, to an 80′s-homage onesie (we’re talking to you Rose Byrne) – the SAG red carpet wasn’t exactly one of our favorites. Here are some of last nights most talked about looks:
Since we pointed her out, let’s start here. Rose Byrne was notedly the most “styled” of the bunch in an attention getting sparkling onesie from Fall 2009′s Elie Saab Collection with a matching banged bob. And while I can’t say I loved the look, I thought is was a much more interesting choice than many of the other single-hued long-long-long gowns that graced the red carpet. The length and width of the pants alone made me think that this onesie was an appropriate award season winner and it didn’t look as stuffy-state-dinner as some of the more red-carpet frocks.
And speaking of long-long-long single hued frocks… here are a few of the floor grazing gowns of which we speak:
A few ladies upped the glamour factor with heavy bodice construction… and if you have the curves to flaunt it then by all means do, like big winner Viola Davis and Sophia Vergara. All in all, though… none of the long-long looks blew me away.
A few of the younger A-lister set took a notedly differently tactic for the red carpet and showed us their footwear (thank you.) Michelle Williams looked lovely in a red Valentino frock whose simplicity was embellished with a short-sleeved lace overlay and shoe-showing appeal.
And Emma Stone’s head-to-toe Alexander McQueen was a pretty (and fun) departure from the floor-length looks.
While the celebrity-wattage on SAG’s red carpet looked undeniably beautiful, I can’t say there was much about last night’s fashion that I’ll remember next year. Let’s hope the ladies of the 2012 awards season are saving the best for last… “and the Academy Award goes to…???”
