I have finalized my best-dressed list from the SAG Awards this past weekend!! Unfortunately, Allie and I missed a bit of the beginning of the red carpet because we were at the movie theatre watching Argo. But, I have the Internet to thank for coming to my rescue! (I don’t regret missing the beginning because the movie was that good…and that’s saying something)
So, without further ado….drumroll please!
Marion Cotillard. I have to admit…when I first saw Marion step onto the red carpet, I wasn’t blown away. BUT, the more I looked at her…the more I fell in love. And she made her way to the top of my list! This two-toned, full-skirt gown was tres chic (I study French now)! Her stunning makeup, delicate jewelry, and confidence were the perfect cherries on top of this Dior gown. Oh and you know I’m a sucker for bows. J’adore Dior.
Helen Hunt. First of all, she is 50-something years old. Second of all, she killed it and totally held her own among the young bombshells out there! The shimmery, Romona Keveza gown alone would have scored her a spot on my top 5 list. But the gunmetal clutch, edgy diamond necklace and bangles she complimented the dress with made her look extraordinary and brought her up to the number two spot. You go girl!
Amanda Seyfried. I love this Old Hollywood look! With the rich-navy, mermaid Zach Posen gown; the soft, vintage, side-swept curls; and the surprising art-deco pendent; Amanda looked gorgeous. My only wish was that she went softer on the eye make-up.
Naomi Watts. This is the second time in a row she has made it onto my top 5 list! This girl knows what she is doing. She looked so lovely in the grey lace Marchesa gown. The earrings were just the right amount to keep the attention on the dress, yet still make a statement. This look wasn’t anything daring; it was classic and elegant. And that is exactly what I love about it.
Jenna Fischer. Doesn’t she just seem to sparkle? She has never wowed me on the red carpet before, but there is always a first time for everything! She seemed so comfortable in the black short-sleeved gown with gold sequins. And the hair, the makeup, the simple jewelry, the matching clutch were the perfect touches to complete her effortlessly beautiful look!
A Couple Shoutouts
These two did not make my top 5 best-dressed list, but I still think they deserve some recognition!
Kiernan Shipka is such a cutie! For a thirteen year old, I thought this age-appropriate Oscar de la Renta dress was so perfect for her.
Nina Dobrev is wearing my favorite designer Elie Saab! To me, he is a genius. This isn’t his most amazing masterpiece, but it is still worth the recognition. And Nina looks pretty amazing in the dress (although I would have chosen different accessories).
And The Cutest Couple Award Goes To….
Jennifer and Ben! (Again) Will I ever choose another couple? Probably not. They are just too cute to beat!
