So the Screen Actors’ Guild Awards were last night, and amid the wins, losses and political statements, there was quite a bit of sartorial savvy on display as well. Here are my Fluffy Awards of Fashion for the evening.
Category: Most Improved
Anna Chlumsky in Elizabeth Kennedy
This is a lot better than the green bedsheet she wore to the Globes– it fits, and I love the color. Not sure what that stray bit of navy cloth trailing the ground is about, but overall a good look.
Naomie Harris in Lanvin
Sofia Vergara in Zuhair Murad
This look is a departure for Sofia, who usually wears slightly different variations of the same mermaid dress, but check out her hottie husband Joe Manganiello and how sweet they look together. Awwww.
Category: Best Accessories
Amy Adams in Brandon Maxwell
Ariel Winter in Mikael D
Ellie Kemper in Wai Ming
Rashida Jones in Vivienne Westwood
Salma Hayek in Gucci
Julia Louis-Dreyfus in Lela Rose
Viola Davis in Vivienne Westwood
Emily Blunt in Roberto Cavalli
Check that out. It looks like a medieval tapestry. Just magnificent. Also a runner up for the Arm Candy Award, as Emily and hubby John Krasinski are just so cute together.
Category: The Fairy Princess Award
Kaley Cuoco in Marchesa
Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton
Formerly known as the Sad Candy Cane Award, but this dress isn’t as sad as it could have been. It’s saved by a healthy dose of glitz and a sophisticated take on the choker trend.
Category: The Bridal Show
Kerry Washington in Roberto Cavalli
Gwendoline Christie in Vivienne Westwood
Taraji P. Henson in Reem Acra
This is so stunning. Both sweet and racy, with the just the right amount of sparkle. Just ah-mazing. Best ballgown of an evening somewhat short on ball gowns, but one this cool makes up for the lack.
Category: Worst Dressed
Nicole Kidman in Gucci
Oh, Gucci, Gucci. When you do right, it’s SO right, but when you mess up you REALLY mess up. This dress could have been awesome, if you had only resisted the sick urge to cover this perfectly reasonable green sequined dress with dead parrots. Okay, not actual dead parrots, but just because no birds were harmed in the making doesn’t make it all right. Just NO.
Category: Best Dressed
(Tie) Maisie Williams
Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen
I couldn’t decide between these two lovely ladies. I always have trouble finding the designers of Maisie’s dresses, and this time couldn’t find out at all, leading me to believe it may be an original creation of her stylist; either way, it’s a vision and so is she, emanating Old Hollywood glam. Emma is breathtaking in a black gown that’s like two dresses in one: a sheer lacy one blooming out of a pretty floral.
Special Category: The Fluffy Award
Thandie Newton in Schiaparelli
If you’ve visited this blog before, you know that the Special Fluffy Award goes to the dress I’d have picked for myself. I love this sparkling design, with an asymmetrical neckline and carnival-esque print. So unusual and pretty. So me!
So there you have it. See you next go-round!
