SAG Awards 2018: A Whole Bunch of Ladies Were Feeling Pretty in Pink

Posted on January 22, 2018

Darlings, there was so much pink on the SAG Awards red carpet that we briefly wondered if this was some sort of “Time’s Up” thing or if it had something to do with the Women’s Marches happening this weekend. Apparently, however, a whole bunch of celebrity women were following the trend toward, soft, romantic, conventionally feminine pinks.

 

Abbie Cornish in Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

And right off the bat, we’re showcasing a look that photographed white half the time, depending on the light. A lot of the pinks were so pale that it was hard to tell they were pink at all. Style-wise, this is par for the course for a lot of dresses last night. There seems to be this sharp divide of choices for the awards show red carpet: either demure prairie dresses or totally glam movie star gowns.

 

 

Alison Sudol in Miu Miu

The bust sits too low and the bands around her bodice cut her up. That’s not a great shade of pink, as far as we’re concerned.

 

 

Connie Britton in Elisabetta Franchi

This is a fun way to do pink on a night when so many opted for soft, romantic tones. We like the idea here, but the dress looks heavy and isn’t particularly flattering.

 

 

Dakota Fanning in Prada

Newp.

It’s the color of her skin. A skin dress. That’s an automatic no from us.

 

 

Laura Linney in J. Mendel

We wanted to like this, but couldn’t bring ourselves to do it. From the waist up, it looks like a perfectly preppy little sweater set. That aesthetic doesn’t translate to floor-length capes with gowns. And when you add a slightly odd feather print, it makes for quite a curious look. A looser, lower neckline would’ve help the design a lot.

 

 

Madeline Brewer in Reem Acra

It’s a pretty dress and her strong lip and hair color prevent it from being too pale and featureless a look. Still pretty close to her skin tone, though. And the shoes are kind of tacky, we’re afraid.

 

 

Margot Robie in Miu Miu

We swear, these white gowns are pink. Anyway, this is fine except for the feathers inexplicable encircling her waist.

 

 

Millie Bobbie Brown in Calvin Klein

The dress is kind of an odd design, but the hair ribbons and Chucks are cute. We never expected her to get this precious about it, but we like seeing her dress a little more like a 13-year-old.

 

Ryan Michelle Bathe in Gemy Maalouf

Pretty. Feels like the neckline could be narrower.

 

 

Uzo Aduba in Christian Siriano

Boy, a lot of ladies were getting their cape action on. This is pretty, if a little standard.

 

 

Vanessa Kirby in Valentino

Probably one of our favorite pink looks of the night. It would have been so much more striking if she’d been sporting her dark Princess Margaret hair.
