Emma Stane in Alexander McQueen
On behalf of my sartorial sisters, I'd like to thank the members of the Screen Actors Guild. We asked for more drama on the red carpet and you brought it. Full party skirts? Check! Sequins? You betcha. Color??? HALLELUJAH. Even though there was a bit of a white out on the red carpet, those who did wear a color rocked it...for the most part.
Now for my Red Carpet awards. The clear winner, at least in my eyes, was Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen. Not only was her dress flirty and fun but Emma also sashayed down the press line like a girl going to her first prom. She appeared fun, effortless and classy all at once. Well done, my fellow strawberry blonde. (Nevermind if hers might be from a bottle.)
Rose Byrne in Elie Saab
Major kudos to Rose Byrne for her "Scarface" reincarnation. She rocked this sequined jumpsuit like it was 1971. Though I obviously did not see her in person, this photo doesn't do her justice. The hair, make-up and fit of this get-up were perfection.
Kyra Sedgwick looked damn fine in this Pucci number. The lady has got it going on!

And I was delighted to see a colorful Oscar de la Renta frock on Emily Blunt. Where is all the ODLR this year?? Her sequined clutch was perfection against that apple green.

I don't usually adore the looks of the E! hosts but I have to give it to Giuliana for wearing not only a colorful, interesting geometric pattern but also a serious metal statement necklace. Maybe she could have pulled her hair back, no?
Giuliana Rancic in Basil Soda
The best looking couple hands down goes to Armie Hammer and his gorgeous wife Elizabeth Chambers, both in Gucci. Holy hotness! His tux was actually a really beautiful midnight blue. Usually I wouldn't go for it but Armie's approachability and modestly made the black alternative approvable. Elizabeth looked flawless and she ushered in the white out on the Red Carpet...

The white out continued with Viola Davis in an ethereal Marchesa stunner.
White gradually faded to gray with Tilda Swinton in Lanvin, another 70s style ode...
Precious Ariel Winter ushered in the gray with another surprisingly stylish frock, this time by Collette Dinnigan and shoe by Miu Miu. Two awards shows in a row this girl has appeared fresh and age appropriate. Calling Lea Michele! (Sorry, girl and Gleeks.)
Finally, we must pay homage to Glen Close and her Zac Posen gown. How fab does she look?? Ladies who are concerned about body issues, this is the dress to wear. That corseting! That fishtail skirt! Those chiffon sleeves!! It's proof that you can WERK no matter your age...
Last night's Red Carpet was way more fun to watch than the Golden Globes. Of course, it wasn't all fab and there were some styles that I really wanted to like but just couldn't bite on- Michelle Williams in Versace, Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Couture and Sofia Vergara in Marchesa.
There were so many obvious trends on the carpet as well- the white/grey/beige thing is still happening and lace topped just about everything. Later this week, we'll talk trends and find some Red Carpet to real life style.
Until then...happy Monday to you!
