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: michelle obama in mcqueen

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

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

fleur delacour (weasley) marries in “mcqueen”; katy perry dons elie saab

i am a huge harry potter nerd, so when the franchise collides with fashion, of course i’m going to give my 2 cents.

although the deathly hallows costume designer won’t outright say that fleur’s gown was inspired by (which is giving her A LOT  of credit) the late mcqueen’s fall 08 collection, the similarities are glaringly obvious, as noted by lela london. see for yourself:

personally, i feel like giving a formal nod to mcqueen would be a great posthumous homage to one of britain’s great(est)s.  and by the way, as a friend pointed out: “bill does not look like his face was eaten by a werewolf.” i concur.

in other wedding news, according to the cut, katy perry got married over the weekend in dove gray elie saab couture. a little zombie bride-ish for my taste, but she does whatever she wants, obviously.
