Red Carpet Coverage – SAG Awards 2012

After a brief hiatus, we are back with the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards. We are right in the middle of awards season with only the Grammys left before the big one – the Oscars.

As always, our red carpet guest editor Banana joins us. Read on to see what she and I think. There ware a lot of repeat faces so let us know if you think the celebs fared better or worse than their previous outings at the People’s Choice, Critics’ Choice, or Golden Globes.

Amber Heard – Zac Posen

D: Very ho hum, dislike the top and the hair. But I do like the peekaboo trend. BB: I like the edginess–tough girl glam! A-

Angelina Jolie – Jenny Packham

D: She looks pretty but the dress is horrendous. Leather never drapes well. B-

B: Angie in yet another sexy black dress and showing only the slightest of smiles… Snooze. B-

Ariel Winter – Colette Dinnigan

D: Love this! Vey age appropriate and love the navy blue/grey colors. Nice refresher from all the black outfits. B+

B: Cute, but the bustier makes her body seem out of proportion. Love that the braid across the top though! B

Ashlee Simpson – Jenny Packham

D: The top hangs a little too low on the chest in my opinion and not quite sure what the sheer is doing. C

B: Reminds me of Vanessa Hudgen’s sparkly Halloween-inspired Packham from a month ago. Packham’s glittering details are better left for softer pink and nude hues. C+

Busy Phillips – Katie Nehra

D: This would be a gorgeous outfit for a day on the pier but not the red carpet. Love the braid though! D

B: Time for a new stylist, Busy. Prints almost never work for evening wear. F

Diana Agron – Caroline Herrera

D: It’s a simple dress but she looks absolutely gorgeous. Love the delicate draping and braided hair. B+

B: Love the braid across the top (Thanks Jennifer Aniston, ’09 Oscars!). Diana’s fuschia number looks great, but it’s a safe choice. B

 
Emily Blunt – Oscar de la Renta

D: My favorite look of the night. The color is absolutely stunning and the simple styling makes it work. Only negative, the hair. A+

B: Wow–what a stunner. The green is an appropriate choice–I’m green with envy over Emily’s dress! A+

Emma Stone – Alexander McQueen

D: I’m usually not a fan of black but I love this look. Hair, makeup, dress, shoes – the whole look is absolutely perfect! A

B: Emma, my style muse, hits another one out of the park. Love her hair and make-up, and the cocktail dress is a nice alternative from the full evening gown. A+

 
Heather Morris – Unknown

D: Uh oh, another leather disaster. Sheer panel isn’t helping and the silver accessories scream “Cheap” to me. D

B: Pick either unique cuts or unique textures–not both! And the slicked back hair isn’t working. D

Jane Krakowski – Antonio Berardi

D: More black. This one fares slightly better but something about it just doesn’t sit right with me. C

B: Jane’s bosom looks on display–the dress draws me to look there rather than at her face! C-

   
Jayma Mays – Reem Acra

D: Not one of Reem Acra’s best, but it works. I love the lace paneling in the back for an otherwise conservative gown. B

B: I’m undecided on this sea of sequins… I do like the back paneling though. C+

Jessica Chastain – Calvin Klein

D: While I like the color, the dress is just a little too simple for my taste. Also, the bodice is again a little low on her. C

B: The color is a good choice for Jessica’s hair, but the cut does nothing to accentuate her body. C+

 
Julianna Marguiles – Calvin Klein

D: Simple but beautiful. The detailing on the fabric makes it look ultra luxe. Just wish she had done something more with the hair. B+

B: Modern brides-to-be must be drooling over this one. B+

Julie Bowen – Temperley London

D: Another dress that I love. The drop waist, shoulder details and color are all great. Unfortunately it overwhelms Julie. B+

B: Love the flowing Grecian-goddess look of this dress! Looks comfy and fab! A-

 
Regina King – Alberta Ferretti

D: Love this! I’m a sucker for soft detailing and the color is absolutely beautiful. Nothing wrong with this at all. A

B: A dreamy vision of purple! I like that she went sans necklace–minimal, natural beauty. A

Michelle Williams – Valentino

D: I like it waste up, but something about the shortened length seems off. Also not a fan of the matching red heels. B-

B: I like the dress but the shoes ruin it for me. Too many visible toes for a formal event. B

Octavia Spencer – Tadashi Shoji

D: A very elegant design with a twist. The sarong wrap skirt adds a casual element to an otherwise formal outfit. A-

B: Love the large-bun hair–very classy–and the dress is fabulous! A

Naya Riviera – Naaem Khan

D: This outfit fits Naya like a glove. The color is beautiful and the silhouette is very flattering. A

B: Naya looks lovely–a subtly sexy elegant. I couldn’t help but notice that obnoxiously large ring on her finger, though. A-

   
Sofia Vergara – Marchesa

D: Another typical Sofia outfit – tight and bright! She looks great but the bodice seems lopsided to me. B+

B: Sofia looks fabulous, yet again, but it would be nice to see her try some different silhouettes. Fuschia seems to be popular this year! B+

Shailene Woodland – L’Wren Scott

D: Oh my eyes! I get that they were going for a youthful look bu the combination of flowers and shimmery blue is too much. F

B: Shailene was hitting home runs on the red carpet up until this moment. Yet another example of prints gone wrong. D

 
Sarah Hyland – Temperley London

D: Another perfect for Sarah. I love the softness of the outfit – only wish it came in a brighter color. A-

B: So many starlets are foregoing necklaces–I like this trend! Sarah looks great, but we’ve seen her in so many nude gowns already this season. B

Rose Byrne – Elie Saab

D: A white jumpsuit doesn’t seem to be the best red carpet choice but this Elie Saab creation is perfect! A-

B: Sequin white jumpsuit? Not many women could pull this off, but Rose actually manages to so props to her. B

 
Zoe Saldana – Givenchy

D: Dislike. The skirt fabric looks cheap along with the visible tank top. The silver collar doesn’t help. C

B: It looks like she’s wearing a guy’s undershirt under that sheer top. C

Stacy Kiebler – Marchesa

D: I couldn’t find a photo without George Clooney but Stacy Kiebler looks great. Love the lace boat neck and fishtail skirt. B+

B: Ha–I think you just didn’t want to find a photo without George ;-). Stacy looks like the perfect lady, as always! B+

 
Kaley Cuoco – Romona Keveza

D: Another favorite of mine. If I had to imagine a wedding gown, this would be it. Bonus points for the head braid. A-

B: Pretty, but too princess-y. B-

Kelly Osbourne – Badgley Mischka

D: A little too much detailing for my taste The rope belt looks weird and without it I think it would have been a hit. B-

B: The silhouette is lovely, but Kelly’s hair ruins every dress for me! C

   
Kristen Wiig – Baliencaga

D: I like the drama the collar adds but it’s too much with the high neck halter. The waist falls at the wrong point. B

B: Love the dress minus the choker. Bright sparkly gold bracelets would have made this amazing. A-

Lea Michele – Versace

D: You ave to admit she looks sexy but the slit is a little too much. Also I would have switched out the shoes. B+

B: I think Lea is killing it in this dress! I love the oh-so-high slit! A+

OVERALL Most of my favorites were the nudes but I liked the use of color, especially Emily’s green and the purple/fuchsia dresses. I like the minimal accessories–especially no necklaces! Draws focus more on an amazing dress and great hair and make-up.
