SAG Awards Fashion

I don't think I'd ever watched the SAG Awards before last night. It wasn't particularly exciting or anything, but some of the fashions are definitely worth talking about. Along with my best and worst dressed, I've added the coulda/woulda/shoulda category for looks I would have loved if one or two things were different.

Best

Who would have thunk a WWE wrestler would ever be on the arms of George Clooney? I love lace and thought this dress was absolute perfection on her. Normally boat necks look too wide on a person, but Stacy's curves balanced out the look perfectly.

She looked terrible at the Golden Globes and fortunately she stepped it up for the SAGs. I loved this blue on her and thought the dress was tailored perfectly.

Considering Kelly hosts a show called Fashion Police, she really needed to look great last night (her Globes look was pretty bad). I loved everything about this dress; the cinching around the waist was so unique and the gathered fabric at the neck accented her face beautifully. I wouldn't be surprised if she is one of the best dressed nominee's on Fashion Police tomorrow!

Worst

Jenna Fischer

As a fellow new mom, I can appreciate what Jenna was trying to do with this dress. But, unfortunately a dress that would make Helen Miren look ah-mazing doesn't have the same effect on someone 30 years younger.

Normally Amber knows how to dress for her body type. But this dress just added volume to all the wrong places. If someone was going to wear this hideous dress it should have been someone not-so-curvy. Adding insult to injury, her hair was weird and didn't go with the vintage-y vibe of the dress.

Gosh, The Office girls had it rough last night! Ellie's dress looked like a bad 1990s Speedo bathing suit. Dresses with no defined waistline are much more flattering on small chested women, which clearly Ellie is not.

Heather Morris

The Glee girls had a rough time last night, too. I don't know even where to start with this, the whole thing was wrong. This is what I was talking about with the dress being too wide at the top, Heather's hips didn't balance it out well. And the added chiffon to the bottom of the dress made the whole outfit look really cheap. The shoes were cute, but didn't match the feel of the dress and were a bit dated. And that hair. THAT HAAAAAAIR!

Coulda/Woulda/Shoulda

Michelle Williams

Loved the top of the dress, the lace under her one shouldered gown was such a lovey surprise. However, I really hated the hemline and matchy matchy shoes. Either knee length or full length would have worked, and I think a strappy gold shoe could have taken the look to a whole new level.

I'm normally not a fan of Lea's red carpet looks, but I really loved this dress, and her hair looked great as well. What bothered me about this look was the shoes. First of all, they were too big for her, and second, they needed to be strappy sandals, not pointy toe pumps. 

Kristen Wiig

If your dress' collar is too high for a necklace, do not, I repeat, do not add a choker. Especially a choker that looks like a freaking chain link neck brace. What Kristen should have done was wear a pair of killer drop earrings and she would have looked stunning. Too bad.

Shailene Woodley

It doesn't come across well in the picture, but the fabric of Shailene's dress was beautiful. I'm pretty sure it was an homage to Hawaii, where her movie, The Descendants, took place. I just wish the top would have been a little fancier. I thought braided fabric straps would have looked really pretty.


Kaley Cuoco

Despite my near-universal hatred for strapless dresses, I really did like this one. The seafoam green color was gorgeous and the fabric in the skirt was so luxe looking. I also loved the braid in Kaley's hair, but thought it would have looked much prettier with the rest of her hair down in soft waves instead of pinned up.

  1. Yikes, Heather Morris did not have a good night on the red carpet did she?! Her dress and her hair were both terrible.
