Screen Actor's Guild Awards Fashion Review

Saturday night was spent yet again in my pajamas, on my couch, texting up a storm. This time it was just my friend Sarah, but we still had a great time. I love hearing my other friend's opinions on fashion. Sarah has an Apparel Merchandising degree from Auburn (WAR EAGLE!) and she really knows her stuff and stays on top of what is on trend, so her perspective is always fun to hear.

The SAG awards were, sadly, not as exciting as the Golden Globes fashion-wise. There were a few *gasp* moments (both good and bad!) but mostly just a lot of middle of the road just *eh* moments. That is why for this award show recap, I have a top 7 in each category. There just weren't enough that I felt were stellar or just awful, so you get what you get!

Let's start off, as usual, with the worst dressed.

Worst Dressed
7. Oprah Winfrey in Badgley Mischka
 Oh Oprah. This color is gorgeous on you. Your hair and makeup are great. But you are OPRAH for crying out loud. Any designer would KILL to dress you and your body is great enough that you can wear something a little less...boring. And for goodness sake-get yourself a better bra. Those tatas do not need to be hanging like that! I wish you would just be...Oprah and step it up a little!

6. Juliette Lewis in Vivienne Westwood
 I don't know what the heck this is. A curtain from a Hawaiian paradise perhaps? That's about the only place I want to see this print. UGH. And the hair? Good need some better stylists honey! I do love the bag and the neckline though.

5. Claire Danes in Vionnet
Um...what? I don't get this dress on you. It is actually a super pretty dress...if you weren't wearing it. The dress is wearing you, sweetie, not the other way around. The hair is decent, but the makeup is just GAG. Where is the pretty Claire Danes that we used to see on red carpets? I miss her...

4. Anna Chlumsky in Sophie Theallet
I don't hate this dress. But it is so poorly fitted that it makes her look frumpy. Don't like hair or makeup. I guess the "thing" is 90s esque simple dresses, but I am not a fan. Its not AWFUL, but its pretty bad.

3. Edie Falco in Lanvin
What the heck is this dress? It has butterflies? Uh...what? I was trying to think of someone I would like this dress on, but I cant think of anyone right now. Her hair is decent though, but those shoes are just bad. Blegh.

2. Kerry Washington in Prada
Major props to you for wearing a crop top while pregnant. But honey this is just BAD. The proportions of the whole outfit are wrong. I actually like the pieces individually, but together you just look frumpy. Love the clutch, love the shoes, and your makeup is GORG. But your outfit is just wrong. And honestly, I don't get why she is everyone's fashion darling. I just don't get it.

1. Mariah Carey in Saint Laurent
Um. Mariah. You are fabulous. Like seriously. Gorgeous. But you are at the SAG awards. Your dress is too plain, too tight, too short, and too ugly. And your panty hose? Why? Why the heck are you wearing panty hose? I didn't think anyone wore those anymore!! (Well, I do, but not to a red carpet. You know what I mean.) You need some more makeup, too. This is just BAD. The only person more disappointing than Oprah is you. You are Mariah flipping Carey. Be FABULOUS.

Now that that's over with, let's get to the good!

Best Dressed
7. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior
Much improved over last week, bestie! (Well, I like to think she's my best friend. I had a dream we went to Waffle House and became best friends. But that's beside the point). Your hair and makeup are PERFECT. Like seriously. PERFECT. Your accessories are great, and your dress looks fantastic on that bod. Very very good, girl!

6. Julie Bowen in Carolina Herrera
Bravo, Julie! This is SO different and I LOVE it on you. This could easily go wrong, but for some reason, on you, its perfect. I love the color, the fit, the pattern, your hair and makeup, earrings, everything. Great job!

5. Emilia Clarke in Calvin Klein
This is SO pretty. This blush color is OFFICIALLY my favorite color for spring. So feminine and lady like! You accessories are great, your hair is PERFECT and your eyebrows are killing me (in the best way possible). The best part? I LOVE your dark nail! So pretty and fresh!

4. Helen Mirren in Escada
She is flawless. I should have put her in the countdown from last week. Don't know why I didn't, to be honest. She is so edgy and elegant in this. The shoes are fab, the earrings are KILLER, and the hair and makeup are perfection. It's easy to let a dress like this wear you. But she wears the HECK out of it. I love you :)

3. Sofia Vergara in Donna Karan
 SOOO pretty, Sofia!! Your hair is BEAUTIFUL. Your face is unfair. Your body is even more unfair. But the dress? UGH. I love you. Seriously. Thank you for surprising us again with a new shape-it REALLY is working for you!

2. Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi
She looks SO GOOD. Hair, makeup, accessories, dress, body, skin, etc etc etc. This color is my fave and it looks incredible on her. Another one that is much improved over last week! Love love love!!!

1. Lupita Nyong'o in Gucci

I mean. Does it get any better than this? Her hair is so cool, and the makeup is interesting and different. This color on her skin tone is spot-on. Honestly, I don't think anyone else could have made this dress look as good. She is just perfect. Official new favorite!

There you have it! Who were your bests and worsts? (Fine print-all of these photos came from e!online. I did not take them and I do not own them).

Now, can all of you do me a major favor? Follow this link and vote for my mom. She has been working so hard for the last 6 months to lose weight and she has lost OVER SIXTY POUNDS. I am so proud of all her hard work and tireless dedication and she REALLY deserves to win this.

Her name is Beverly and she is the second picture down. All you do is click "yes" by her picture and then scroll down to submit. I just cant express how proud I am of her.

Thanks in advance, y'all. Cross your fingers she wins!! (But don't cross them before you vote!!)
