red carpet style: anne hathaway in marni

not what we’re used to seeing from her, but i LOVE it. this outfit is everywhere: mixing prints, combining brown, black AND navy, high waisted cropped pants with a cropped sweater, stripes, and ruffles…but she still looks awesome.

red carpet style: the worst of the 2011 sag awards

warning: the following content may make your eyes bleed.

10. jennifer lawrence in oscar de la renta pre-fall ’11

{at first glance, i thought i liked this, but now that i keep looking at the dress, i’ve decided i DO NOT. mostly, it’s the slit that really bothers me, but i also think a dress of this hue just doesn’t suit her/her makeup.}

9. julie bowen in catherine malandrino

{she almost pulled this off. i mean, she has a rockin’ bod so it’s not hideous, but pantsuits are bad news.}

7. melissa leo in randi rahm

{this isn’t completely unfortunate but definitely a far cry from her amazing globes gown. i expected more from you, melissa leo!}

6. angela kinsey in jovani couture

{pretty sure i have seen jovani prom dress ads in seventeen magazine. that’s all i have to say about that.}

5. eva longoria in georges hobeika couture spring ’11

{i heard this gown came straight off the runway from the paris couture show last week. to me, it looks like one of those toilet paper wedding dresses that you drape on your friend during a bridal shower game.}

4. jenna fischer in fendi

{could she look any frumpier? not only is this drab, but it does NOTHING for her figure. she needs to fire her stylist; i can honestly count on one hang the number of times she has looked good on a red carpet.}

3. christina hendricks in l’wren scott fall ’10

{elvira, is that you? rain makes it hard to look good, but yikes.}

2. kate mara in herve lager spring ’11

{not. flattering. also: headband??}

1. winona ryder in alberta ferretti bridal spring ’11

{yep, you read that right. BRIDAL. and what’s with the black clutch? is she trying to be helena bonham carter?}

red carpet style: the best of the 2011 sag awards

so many more risks taken than the globes…lots of colorful, dramatic dresses! there seemed to be alot of blushes and reds. overall, these ladies should be proud!

so claire danes and mila kunis (and jenny packham and monique lhullier) have made both of my best dressed lists so far…should make for an interesting academy carpet!

10. heather morris in romona keveza

{a modern day glinda the good witch? i love that she wore her hair up to avoid looking too much like cinderella.}

9. sarah hyland in max mara elegante

{age appropriate, simple, and the perfect shade for her color palette}

8. kyra sedgwick in vintage thierry mugler couture

{simple, sleek, she owns this dress.}

7. jayma mays in jenny packham spring ’11

{love this peachy shade. it goes perfectly with her hair. i would have loved to see this without the shoulder detail and asymmetrical bottom and with a chunky turquoise necklace instead, though.}

6. mila kunis in alexander mcqueen resort ’10

{rachel bilson, is that you???}

5. julia stiles in monique lhullier pre-fall ’11

{i usually HATE ombre, but she looks incredible from head to toe. maybe it’s because i didn’t expect this from her, of all people!}

4. january jones in carolina herrera pre-fall ’11

{after her flesh-baring miss at the globes, i’m glad she went with something classy. this look is really …rich? the color of the carpet makes her look like spanish royalty. she really looks like she was transported from a different time and place. amazing.}

3. hailee steinfeld in prada spring ’11

{i really cannot say enough good things about this girl. not many 14 year olds can step out in prada and rock the garment like it was made. for. her…it’s like high fashion with a touch of limited too. in a good way.}

2. claire danes in louis vuitton

{the woman has the enviable ability to turn a pretty and charming dress into a breathtaking ensemble. flawless hair and makeup. jealous.}

1. amy adams in herve l leroux

{white and tight usually make for an unforgivable faux pas (not to mention trashy and distasteful) but she looks GORGEOUS. it takes balls to wear a dress like this…ever, much less 6 months after giving birth?!}

red carpet style: whitney port in whitney eve

{whitney port in a peach colorblock skirt from her line’s spring ’11 collection. the leopard print flats are a subtle touch that adds some spice to this otherwise innocent ensemble.}

her legs look really photoshopped in this picture…

red carpet style: gabrielle union in rachel roy

my favorite clovers cheerleader hosted the bet honors over the weekend. she looked SMASHING. (said with a very victoria beckham air about me)

{gabrielle union in rachel roy spring ’11}

and speaking of rachel roy:

oh hey!

red carpet style: michelle obama in mcqueen

everyone’s raving about the first lady’s choice of duds for the state dinner last night. i approve.

{michelle obama in a custom version of mcqueen resort ’11}

the original had puff sleeves, but the first lady has amazing arms, so i can’t really blame her for doing away with them…
