2011 SAG Awards Red Carpet Part 2
Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2011
In a lot of ways it’s a standard Lea Michele look, which should tell you something. She’s been a star less than 2 years and she’s already fallen into a rut style-wise. It’s not a bad look at all, though.
Amber Riley in Anne Barge
We went back and forth on this. A LOT. But the bottom line is, she’s a big girl. There’s no dress that’s magically going to make her look thinner and besides, there’s no reason for her to attempt that or even want that. This dress celebrates her bod; it flatters her and balances her out by adding volume in other areas; and it’s an attention-getter of a dress. Good for her. She looks like she loves the way she looks. We love the hair and makeup.
It almost had something. There’s a little visual interest with the unusual print and good styling could have taken it somewhere, but it just looks like a nightgown here. Puff up the hair, slap on some bangles and a showy necklace, and walk it like you mean it. That’s how you make a dress like this work.
Cara Buono in J. Mendel Fall 2010
Hair and makeup are good and we like the color of the dress. Herein endeth the compliments. There’s just way too much going on here and none of it’s going on in a way that flatters her. The dress looks like it has a tumor.
Claire Danes in Louis Vuitton
We’ll always applaud a print on the RC. Not sold on the belt, but the rest of it works fine. Hubby looks like a barrel of laughs, doesn’t he?
Sarah Hyland in Max Mara
Pretty and understated. Nothing to get excited about but nothing to pan either. She looks sweet.
Hilary Swank in Versace
Enh. Nothing much of interest here.
Eva Longoria in Georges Hobeika Couture Spring 2011
We made fun of this on Twitter
last night for being too boobtastic, but it really does look good on her. It moved beautifully. She has a tendency to sometimes wear tacky dresses on the RC, so this is a move in the right direction for her.
Helena Bonham Carter in Marc Jacobs
The Priscilla Presley hair is a little cray cray, but we just love her look here. Stylish and fabulous, but still totally HBC.
Jane Krakowski in Badgley Mischka
We didn’t like this dress at all. We can’t quite put our finger on why. Sometimes these metallic dresses work and sometimes they don’t. We don’t understand why she paired those shoes with this dress, though. Black shoes would have upped the drama.
Jayma Mays in Jenny Packham Spring 2011
We hated this on TV, but it looks a lot better here. This might not be the best color for her, though. Makeup’s good but the hair’s a little goofy.
Jenna Ushkowitz in Badgley Mischka
It’s not as noticeable here, but on TV, you could see her belly button through the dress, which prompted us to come up with a new fashion rule: If we can see your belly button through the dress, IT’S TOO TIGHT. The fit is fine elsewhere, but it’s really tight across her midsection.
Julia Ormond in Johanna Johnson
It’s pretty. We like the belt and the draping in the bodice, but it does make her boobs look like they’re melting.
Juliana Margulies in YSL
Pretty if unspectacular. The real news here is her super cute arm candy. Break us off a piece of THAT.
Kate Mara in Hervé Léger by Max Azria Spring 2011
Mmmm, no. It’s like there’s all these things going on, but there’s no payoff. Does that make sense? The dress is less than the sum of its parts.
Katrina Bowden in Max Azria
Kyra Sedgwick in vintage Thierry Mugler
We thought she looked amazing in this dress. She’s got a killer bod and the styling was kept to a minimum. A simple pair of dangly earrings and big hair is all a gal needs when she’s wearing this.
Naya Rivera in Aurelio Costarella
The silhouette is lovely and it moves beautifully. It has a ’30s Harlowe feel to it, but that detail at the bust makes it look her boobs are running away from each other.
Paz de la Huerta
Wow. Somebody got to her. She’s been deprogrammed. We don’t think she’s ever shown so little skin in public. We actually like this dress a lot. The makeup is awful once again and the hair looks too casual. That lip color makes it look like she’s been drinking coffee out of a bowl all day.
Annette Bening in Tony Ward Couture Fall 2010
Freaking flawless. No more needs to be said.
Rosario Dawson in J. Mendel
It’s kind of plain, but the color is really gorgeous on her. We like the pairing here. Not everyone would pick those earrings and shoes, but we think whoever did has a good eye. We hate the one-shoulder hairstyle, though.
Tina Fey in Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2011
There has to be a new stylist in the picture. No one makes that dramatic a turnaround all by themselves. She has never looked this good, full stop. But a black pump was not a good choice with this dress.
It’s a lovely dress in a beautiful color that suits her really well. And she looks amazing for her age. The problems? First, the “1974 Country Music Awards” hair; second, really bad lip color; third, uniboob
Heather Morris in Romona Keveza Resort 2010
She looks amazing here. Never, ever looked this good before. Brava, darling.
