SAG Awards Red Carpet Recap – Best and Worst Dressed


The SAG Awards happened Sunday night (not that you could tell if you were Canadian; Global was suppose to air it, but ended up showing a Debbie Travis special instead for most of the first hour). We did, however, get to see all of the red carpet entrances, courtesy of E’s hilariously awkward coverage (which featured Ross Mathews quizzing Mark Salling about his sexual assault charges).

In terms of fashion, the biggest trend of the night was dark gowns, some stunning (go, Amanda Seyfried!), while others not so much (I’m looking at you, Anne.) Here are my picks for the five best and worst looks of the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards.


nina-dobrev-SAG-awards Nina Dobrev was flawless in an Elie Saab gown, showing Lea Michele how hot pink should be done.

amanda-seyfried-SAG-awards It was a simple dark gown, but the hem detail and exquisite fit made Amanda Seyfrieds Zac Posen my favourite one of the night (even beating Jennifer Lawrence‘s Dior Haute Couture, which was admittedly a million times better than JLaw’s Globes gown). Amanda topped it off perfectly with an art deco medallion. —–>


marion-cotillard-SAG-awardsThere are very few people who can pull off a giant bow on their waist, but Marion Cotillard did just that in her white and green Dior gown. The fact that she did it while battling the flu makes it even more impressive!


jennifer-garner-SAG-awardsThis might be the first time Jennifer Garner has ever made it on my best dressed list, but she killed it in gold Oscar de la Renta. Not loving the hair, but baby steps! —->



Tina Fey also opted for Oscar de la Renta, channelling old Hollywood in a strapless black gown.


(Also, honourable mentions have to go to Helen Hunt in a silver/gold Romena Cervesa, Julianne Moore in Chanel Couture, and Nicole Kidman in Vivienne Westwood.)




anne-hathaway-SAG-awardsAnne Hathaway did nothing to shoot down those pregnancy rumours by avoiding the E! cameras – or by wearing this Giambattista Valli dress.


jessica-chastain-SAG-awardsI think Jessica Chastain is ravishing in red Alexander McQueen (it’s a huge improvement from that light blue Globes dress, no?) , but does anyone else think it wouldn’t have hurt her to go up one size? There’s a bunching issue here. —->



There has never, ever been a one-sleeved dress that I’ve liked, and Claire Danes black, one-shouldered Givenchy is no exception. And that throwback ’90s lipstick? Ugh.


Sofia-Vergara-SAG-AwardsModern Family’s Sofia Vergara strikes out in white Donna Karan Atelier, but I guess we should just be grateful that it’s not all about her boobs this time around. —->


Jane-Krakowski-SAG-Awards30 Rock’s Jane Krakowski called the colour of her Kaufman Franco gown “orangey-sherbet,” which is also how I’d describe her fake tan.



(Dishonourable mentions go to Ariel Winter and Rose Byrne.)
