Last night, the 19th Annual Screen Actor’s Guild Awards were in full effect. The SAG Awards are pretty special to the actors because they are voted on by other SAG actors. The SAG card is a right of passage for most actors, and allows them union type of protection and perks such as health insurance, dental, etc. For big actors, that isn’t a huge deal, but for those actors who are struggling trying to make ends meet, being a SAG member is a pretty huge feat.
The red carpet last night was full of fabulousness. We saw a lot of black and white, side parts, updo’s, and texture. The SAG Awards aren’t the most prestigious during the award season, but I was impressed with many of the looks I saw on the red carpet.
Here are my SAG Awards’ 5 Most Fab of the Night:
5. Teyonah Parris
Teyonah was breathtaking in a purple (lilac I’m told) Monique Lhuillier textured gown with halter neckline. I loved this look on Teyonah, and was enamored by her natural hair, which was fashioned in a haute updo. Teyonah is an actress who you may have seen on Mad Men or in a McDonald’s commercial airing nationwide. I hope to see big things from her!
4. Jessica Chastain
Jessica Chastain can do no wrong these days. First she wowed us in The Help, and now has been nominated for all types of awards for her performance in Zero Dark Thirty. Jessica’s red hair complimented this scarlet red gown from Alexander McQueen showing off her fab figure. Her makeup was simple and toned down, but I think it really worked to her favor.
3. Kerry Washington
Kerry Washington is my girl crush. I have loved her since I saw her in Save the Last Dance years ago. Kerry is now making her mark as Olivia Pope on ABC’s Scandal, and is getting all types of praises. Her look for the evening was designed by Rodarte in what she calls, “Olivia Pope White”. I like the two-piece effect of her look with the jeweled corset top and flowing skirt. Well done, Kerry!
2. Amanda Seyfried
Amanda claims that she doesn’t know that much about fashion, but I can’t tell. She wore a dream of a strapless gown by Zac Posen, in a brilliant dark blue color with layered train. Another trend of the evening, side-parted hair, completed the look with a natural smoky eye. Perfection!
1. Jennifer Lawrence
Jennifer Lawrence graced the red carpet with walking pneumonia, but still ended up looking the most fab of the night! The Silver Linings Playbook actress looked stunning and radiant in a Dior Couture gown. So haute!
Honorable mentions: January Jones, Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway, Naomi Watts, and Marion Cotillard.
