The Producers Guild of America’s annual awards ceremony is possibly the lowest-profile event of Oscar season, and consequently the red carpet is rather sparsely attended, and wildly variable; evening gowns share space with more casual attire, and it’s like pulling teeth to find out the designers for most of the outfits. I’ve spent the better part of the day scouring Google and Twitter, but discovered the makers of only six of the outfits, so if there’s not a designation, trust that I tried and failed. Boo me. ☹️ Also, I didn’t see anything that truly bothered me enough to denote it as Worst Dressed, so this is a fairly positive batch of Fluffies.

Another dress that I couldn’t turn up a designer for, it features a striking leather bodice contrasting with a flowing skirt. The real eye catcher for me, though, is the awesome necklace, and the coordinating sparkly cuff bracelet.

This whole ensemble is just so over-the-top that I’m more than a little in love with it, but as I can’t find the designer, it’s a doomed love. That rich blue-violet color, the crystal-studded bodice, the dramatic train, the shimmery shawl, the statement earrings. Just. Wow.

This is just beautiful! This Tiffany-blue dress with silver flower accents has a definite Mad Men vibe, carried through in the pointy-toed pumps, vintage-inspired handbag, filigree bracelet, and glittery cardigan.

This palest-blush-pink Carolina Herrera gown, embellished with black rhinestones on the spaghetti straps and sweetheart neckline and accessorized with bright Chopard diamonds, looks absolutely perfect on Lady Gaga as she takes the stage to perform her song Till it Happens to You. Breathtaking.
Special Category: The Fluffy Award
The Extra-Special Fluffy Award goes to the dress I would have chosen for myself and which best represents my own style. This lovely Prabul Gurung with its draped strapless bodice and brush strokes of warm sunny color is a great antidote for my winter blahs. So original, and so me!
As I said earlier, if anyone knows the designer behind the unidentified dresses, please drop me a comment so I can edit the post. Sorry for the brevity, but there just wasn’t a lot of coverage for these awards; hopefully the next post will be more extensive and easier to research!
