SAG Awards Red Carpet, Part TWO

Posted on January 30, 2012

No time for talk, ladies! Hop on the bitchtrain!

 

Aleksa Palladino

At this point, we’re starting to think ladystars wear these bland lace dresses because they’re hoping to blend in. To which we say, “It’s a red carpet, honey. Blending in is for losers and character actors.” Besides, the proportions are odd here, making her upper half look smaller than her lower half. She looks like she wouldn’t be able to raise her arms.

Ariel Winter in Collette Dinnigan

Surprisingly pretty, given the elements and color. More dramatic shoes were required.

 

Ashlee Simpson in Jenny Packham

How … grownup. She looks great, though; just more mature than we’re used to.

 

Glenn Close in Zac Posen

Glenn, we’ll keep this simple because we suspect you’re the kind of gal who needs her fashion broken down for her: Stay the hell away from Zac Posen. He’s nothing but trouble. Also, stop wearing such tight dresses. You’re admirably fit, but the Sofia Vergara-style silhouettes don’t quite fit your image.

 

Jennifer Carpenter in Emilio Pucci

Pretty, but a little generic.

 

Jessica Chastain in Calvin Klein

This would look bland on a lot of gals, but it’s perfect for her. The bust sits a little low, though.

 

Jessica Lange in David Meister

Aw, she doesn’t give a fuck and neither do we. She’s the Honey Badger of actresses. And she’s earned the right.

It’s not actually a bad dress, though.

 

Kaley Cuoco in Romona Keveza

Pretty, but generic. Seems to be a theme for the night.

 

Kelly Osbourne in Badgley Mischka

Love the details here, like the shoulder and waist treatments. They take it away from being a boring white dress and they’re certainly not making it look bridal. Great fit too.

 

Kyra Sedgwick in Emilio Pucci

If a gal wants to take the opportunity to remind people that she’s still hot, who are we to argue with that? It’s not her best look ever and it does come right up to the border of Tackytown, but she’s rocking it. And why not?

 

Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji

We like everything here but the spot at which the skirt hits her midsection. Lower that just a skosh and we’d like it a lot more, even if it is a little too monochromatic a look.

 

Paz Vega

Pretty. Generic.

 

Regina King in Alberta Ferretti

When Octavia rocked that lavender dress at the Golden Globes, we wondered if it wasn’t going to spark a mini-trend among ladystars of color, just because it looks so good. She’s killing it here.

 

Rose Byrne in Elie Saab

We think you can wear a jumpsuit to the SAG Awards. We just don’t think it’s this one, dear.

 

Shailene Woodley in L’Wren Scott

Gorgeous dress.

 

Tilda Swinton in Lanvin

Surprisingly – and disappointingly – generic in a lot of ways. She looks good; she just doesn’t look Swintontastic.

 

Viola Davis in Marchesa

GURL!

WERQ!

      That’s a jumpsuit on Byrne, not a pantsuit. There’s a world of difference.

      I think Glenn Close looks fabulous, although if the skirt had been straight I think it would have been more her.

      Kelly looks good except for the hair.  Make it stop.

      Rose Byrne’s pants…maybe if they were a slimmer fit instead of giant leg holes that swallowed her feet?

      Ooooh Weee….Viola was KILLING IT last night! I loved everything!  Octavia I thought has been improving so much during the awards season. I thought her look was good, but I’d like her to stand up straight more. And smile bigger.  I like Glenn Close’s dress, but it was waaaaay to young for her. Everyone else was just sorta boring for me. It was like no one was trying because it was the SAG awards. It was really disappointing.

      I love Viola’s dress.  The problem?  It’s almost identical to one Taylor Swift wore a few years ago, same designer and everything. 
      http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-mV-ETGlWP9s/TanKbCrajgI/AAAAAAAAAIU/OnYBXXaJmgA/s1600/marchesa.jpg  Aren’t stylists supposed to make sure that shit doesn’t happen?  Same thing when Julie Bowen wore the same Reem Acra Olivia Wilde did to the Emmys a few years ago.  Viola deserves her own damned dress, not a Swiftian hand-me-down.

      • Sobaika Mirza

        Yeah, that’s annoying. You’d think an awards season favorite would be able to command the very latest and the very best.

        Whatever, Viola’s working it in a way that Taylor could never manage.

        • http://twitter.com/PumpsAndGloss Pumps and Gloss

          It does not matter if Swifty Can’t Sing wore a similar dress. I agree with you, S. Mirza,  Ms. Viola rocked the hell out of that dress!!

            Also, Talentless Shit had sex with that troglodyte John Mayer. AFTER he went up and down the halls talking about sex with Jessica Simpson.  Hell has carved it’s own special space within her, and that space is where pretty dresses disappear from the public consciousness.

        Actually, I think Viola saved that dress.

      I like Carpenter’s dress a lot. The nude pumps even work with it. Lang needed some jewelry, but otherwise looks fantastic. Close needs a darker blonde. I’m noticing a lot of bad hair color on stars lately. (Maybe it is just the camera flashes washing out the blondes?)

      I really like Kelly Osborne’s dress on her. Not sure I love the hair and lipstick, but overall the best look of this batch.

      • Anonymous

        Agreed on Kelly. She looks beautiful, and comfortably happy.  And weirdly, I think the hair works this time- maybe because there’s not a lot of competing color?

      Viola Davis looks amazing! I’d like it a bit higher in the bust and it does look a wee bit bridal..no? 
      Not loving Shailene W -the dress is nice but I don’t think she looks good in it.
      Love the color on Regina King – don’t love the ruffles/shape on her
      Jumpsuit is dreadful. 

      WOW – Ashlee Sumpson looks amazing -when did that happen (and why is she there?)

      Everyone else is a “meh” for me.

        Ashlee shocked me too.  She’s giving off major Josie-Bissett-circa-1992 vibes here (in a good way).

      That’s why I love posts like these because there’s always room to disagree with you guys. For example: I LOVED Rose Byrne’s jumpsuit. Loved it! Meanwhile, Shailene Woodley’s dress looks like a tacky gift wrap.

        I know – my first thought was, “oh, are we doing floral bias-cut dresses again?” I wore a succession of them in the mid-late 90s.

      Seeing Glenn Close in that tight of a dress is about as comfortable as seeing your mom in a G-string.

      Viola looks great. Love her hair and makeup. She just needed a tiny bit more fabric to cover the bust. Love Regina, Kelly and Octavia (though I wish she would wear some lip color). Most of the rest are safe and dull.

      I very much like Jennifer Carpenter’s dress. The lace certainly isn’t generic if a bit “here are my ovaries, dears”.
      Love Kelly Osbourne’s and Shailene Woodley’s dresses. And Viola Davis of course. Did she ever had a misstep? Not this season it seems.

      Shaliane Woodley’s dress is fantastic!!  Way to bring color and print to a see of generic!

      I know Jennifer Carpenter is, like 6 1/2 feet tall, but geez, she could use a carb or two.

    • Anonymous

      It’s a simple dress but the color, fit and accessories bump Jessica Chastain’s look all the way up to fabulous.  I’m so glad to see Viola Davis looking so glamorous.  She so often plays such beaten down characters that it’s great to see her WERQing it.  Regina King looks great – that color really works on her.  Kelly Osbourne looks fab – love, love, love that dress.  What’s the world coming to when Ashlee Simpson has one of the best looks on the RC?  Kyra Sedgwick looks tacky.  Is that a tat on her torso?  Ewww…  Not loving the L’Wren Scott dresses on this RC, though Shailene Woodley is young enough and gorgeous enough to look okay in it.  Dear Tilda, white is not your color.

      Jessica Lange looks lilke she pulled a gown from her closet at the last minute and ran out with no make-up on.  But she still looks pretty fabulous and I love the dress.  It’s a good choice for a woman of a certain age who doesn’t want to show a lot of skin.  But then I’m biased in favor of Ms. Lange.  A few years ago we were both at an industry event.  I was on crutches following a ski injury.  We both ended up heading for the ladies’ room at the same time.  She was very kind, held the doors open for me and seemed very down to earth.  And my hat is off to any woman who bedded both Sam Shepard and Mikhail Baryshnikov.

      Aleksa Palladino’s bra strap is also showing. If you’re going to wear an off the shoulder gown, invest in a strapless bra. Totally worth it. And Jessica Lange is truly the honey badger of actresses.

      I continue to detest Rose Byrne’s bangs. Hate the jumpsuit.

      Jessica Chastain got it right at last. Octavia Spencer got it right as usual. Viola looks fabulous if a little cleavage-y. Shailene Woodley has finally heard of makeup and its many benefits. Now she needs to learn about hair. And, speaking of hair, Kelly Osbourne has made a big coloring mistake with hers.

      Octavia looks fabulous… she is really beautiful in that dress.  I like it ALOT.  Viola looks great too… except for her hair… it is too old fashion… reminds me of the early days of the Supremes.  I love that dress Kelly Osborne is wearing… I really wish she would change her hair color though.  It really bugs me…. maybe another shade of blonde??

      Also gotta hand it to Kelly Osbourne, in the “best she’s ever looked” department.

        I’m with you on Regina King–she looked absolutely gorgeous!  She and Viola Davis (LOVE the curls!) were the big fashion winners in my book.  But I also really liked Shailene Woodley’s dress–which looked more silver than blue on the carpet–and good for her for wearing a print! 

        I saw Rose Byrne on the carpet, and I thought the jumpsuit was lovely on her.

      I’m not entirely sure who Octavia Spencer is (I looked her up, so I know why she looks familiar, but I’m not really into any of her movies), but I’m a little bit in love with her from TLo’s red carpet posts.  She ROCKS the plus sizes, knows how to dress her shape, and looks awesome.  I’d even disagree about lowering the waist here.

      I don’t mind Glenn Close’s look, but  haven’t we seen that dress before?

      Can’t get behind the love of Jessica Chastain’s dress.  Sure, it shows off a slammin’ bod, but so would a catsuit.  That doesn’t make it a great dress.

      I’m not sure what to think about dresses like Kaley Cuoco’s.  Those big fluffy skirts sometimes work dramatically, but more as a pose in a magazine than on the red carpet, which, for all of its showiness, is meant to lead to an event in their real lives.

      Not loving Kelly Osbourne’s.   She really does not look good as a blond.  She doesn’t have the coloring for it.  The white dress does not  help.

      I think I’d like Regina King’s better without the rows of ruffles coming down, but it’s still pretty.

      I’m just never going to be on board with jumpsuits.  Or pants for women at formal events (sorry, TLo–I just don’t think women’s pants ever look formal, no matter how uncomfortable they seem). 

      I hate that print on Shailene Woodley’s dress.  Looks like it should be on a beach cover-up.

      Can’t say I think Tilda Swinton looks great either, but then I’ve never understood the Tilda thing.

      I’ll go with the WERQ on Viola Davis, though.

      Aleksa Palladino – Boring
      Ariel Winter – I thought she looked really cute & age appropriate.
      Ashlee Simpson – She looked pretty but this look reminded me of Roxy Carmichael  in Chicago.
      Glenn Close – Like the top, hate the fish tail bottom.
      Jennifer Carpenter – Feels a little under dressed.
      Jessica Chastain – Very pretty color.
      Jessica Lange – She had a weird titscrepansy when she was onstage accepting her reward. It made her look completely cracked out & crazy.
      Kaley Cuoco – Safe but pretty
      Kelly Osbourne – Great dress. Looks like she’s toned down the gray and added a little pink or lavender to it. It’s a much better look.
      Kyra Sedgwick – She looks great, but I think this dress belongs on JLo or Halle Berry.
      Octavia Spencer – Pretty & her acceptance speech made me tear up.

      I don’t know what is up with Posen this awards season. EVERYTHING I’ve seen of his on the RC has been off. Either the fabric is too stiff, the details are overworked, or the hems are way off and make the rest of the dress seem sloppy.

      I dunno..I think Shailene’s dress looks like “Target Swim-Cover-Up Maxi-Dress W/Sequins.” Maybe I’m just not a fan of florals, but I think it could have used some more tailoring up top to keep it looking more like a gown and less like a tank dress.

      Love Jessica Chastain ! That blue is wonderful, she rocks it !
      Shailene Woodley’s dress is pretty, fun, young and fresh, a pleasure to look at.
      And Ariel Winter to dress age-appropriatly, hooray ! See, you don’t have to show your torso to look pretty ! She really got better these times and it’s a relief.

      I think Octavia Spencer looks fantastic, and that the gather at the waist is flattering to her.

      I dunno.  Glenn Close certainly did a 180 from the Armani, it has to be said.

      Why is Rose Byrne trying to rock Anna Wintour?

      Shailene Woodley never looks done up. Her hair and makeup always looks like she’s headed to the mall after soccer practice, not walking a red carpet.

      That said, I like a good print.

      This is the best I have ever seen Viola look, EVER.  The way those colors look against her skin is perfect.  This is look that says, “I’m here to pick up my award!”

      You know those books you had as a kid that were split in a couple of sections so that you’d make a creature with the head of goat, the body of ballerina and the legs of a fireman? Glen Close’s picture looks like it came from that book. That is just plain someone else’s dress and persona with Glen Close’s head.

      I think the accessory Swinton needs is someone of normal height standing next to her.  I imagine it’s very striking in person.

      I remain eternally baffled as to how a woman of Glenn Close’s beauty and talent can manage to look so very bad so very consistently. Maybe someone could write a little book explaining it. I would read that book. Meanwhile, I love Kelly O’s dress so much it makes me ache — she’s perfect in it, as usual. And Jessica Lange as the Honeybadger of actresses makes me very happy. She IS. Because she’s like, a super glamorous fabulous star who lives on a ranch in Wyoming or something most of the time. With SAM SHEPHERD. *sigh*

      I want to see Shelley O in Viola Davis’s dress!  Even if she has the decolletage altered so it’s less revealing, she would look amazing.

      Best: Octavia Spencer and Shailene Woodley.  Worst: Glenn Close and Glenn Close

      No one should ever wear that jumpsuit. No one. EVER. Kelly looks smashing in that dress. Ashlee’s looking surprising glam. Nice. Not digging Regina’s ruffles, though she looks good. Tilda’s making me sad. Viola Davis looks effing ah-mazing! She has the most beautiful shoulders and upper arms and….I’m turning green. But the girls do look like they could free themselves at any minute.

      As per usual, I have issues with Viola’s cleavage. It tends to look uneven, and a bit…how do I say this..like she has saggy girls and they’re sitting on a shelf.  The bodice is a bit low for my taste.  I’m picking nits, though, she’s a gorgeous woman.

      Jennifer Hudson has the same thing, but I’m assuming hers is because she’s lost too much weight and hasn’t had a lift yet.

      Gawker has a close-up of Viola’s bracelet.  Talk about the details — it is sublime!

      Loved Viola Davis’ dress.  Great colors on her.  I do have to say that I am glad that everything stayed strapped in…I was worried a couple times that she might jiggle right out of the top!

      “The Honey Badger” that is Jessica Lange! Fabulous, T and Lo – just fabulous.

      I thought that Viola Davis looked sadly off last night. The photo above looks much nicer than she did any time I saw her on tv. It’s like she couldn’t decide which era to be in–the hair was the most antiquated, followed by the dress, which just looked disco (not)fabulous and the glitter all over her skin the most modern. . . 

      And I also thought Octavia Spencer was maybe the best look of the night.

      Bowing down to Miss Viola!    I liked Woodley’s print dress, but she desperately needed  more dramatic hair, or any hair style for that matter and a bolder lipstick and she would have knocked that print out of the park.

      Loved Viola Davis’s dress (on HER) and that she won. I can’t talk about her hair, which was so awful I wasn’t sure it was her when I first saw her.

      Viola’s wearing the best Marchesa I’ve seen in a while.

      I have to disagree with T&L on Rose Byrne. That jumpsuit is fab and she totally pulls it off!

      Aww, Jessica Lange says fuck you in a brown dress. Love ya!

      I have no idea who
      Shailene Woodley is, but that print is fantastic, and elevates it from a simple looking dress to something worthy of the RC.
