Betty Gabriel In Phuong My – 2018 SAG Awards

Betty Gabriel attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The ‘Get Out’ actress wore a Phuong My dress that is both unexpected and dramatic.

I can see this dress being quite polarizing among readers, but I for one, am sold. The design of this gown would fall flat in just about any other fabric I can think of–seriously, picture it–but in this unique, tartan-esque print, the dress is pushed into a league all its own. It’s bold, it’s a risk and Betty pulls it off completely.

I also love that her makeup artist chose to match her smokey eye makeup with the color of the dress. The deep green is a fresh choice that really elevates the look beyond what more traditional colors could. The fresh mauve lip is also a smart choice, since it is slightly unexpected, just like the gown.

Maya Rudolph In Zac Posen – 2018 SAG Awards

Maya Rudolph attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The actress and comedienne wore a Zac Posen dress with a floral overlay and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

I love Maya, and I love Zac Posen, which is why it pains me to say I do not love this dress! The colors and the fabrication make it look like something you could get for $60 at a department store, and it feels wholly out-of-place on the red carpet!

I do love the long ruffle at the hemline, but that pretty much sums up what I like about the dress.

Am I being too harsh? Am I missing something wonderful here?

Sally Hawkins In Christian Dior Couture – 2018 SAG Awards

Sally Hawkins attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The nominee wore a Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture gown with a Tyler Ellis clutch, Stuart Weitzman ‘Queen’ pumps and Irene Neuwirth jewels.

Never one to shy away from bold fashion, Sally wears this in a way that many people could not. While it is definitely what many would refer to as a ‘lot of look’, I love how graphic and unique it is. The length is perfect on Sally’s petite frame, and I can’t help but smile, because she looks like she’s genuinely enjoying wear it.

I will say, I miss the belt from the runway presentation. Without it, the center of the print looks like a bullseye, and I find myself staring straight at it, every time I look at the gown.

Leslie Mann In Zuhair Mura – 2018 SAG Awards

Leslie Mann walked the red carpet of the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

A presenter at the show, Leslie wore a gown from the Zuhair Murad Resort 2018 collection.

As usual, I simply love Leslie Mann and what she brings to the red carpet table. The drape of this gown was absolutely divine as Leslie walked on the carpet and presented on the stage. The print is quite unique and largely editorial, but it doesn’t lose its way on the red carpet, but rather comes to life all the more in this setting.

Ever-so-simple hair and a blue smokey eye are red carpet beauty done right.

Yvonne Strahovski In Ester Abner – 2018 SAG Awards

Yvonne Strahovski attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The actress wore a white lace Ester Abner Resort 2018 gown with diamond chandelier earrings.

I absolutely love the presence of a shirtdress on the red carpet. And a lace shirtdress? I’m in heaven! And while wearing it unbuttoned to create both a v-neckline and a front split, as seen in the lookbook, may be more expected for a red carpet gown, I love the effect it takes all buttoned up as Yvonne is wearing it. I do miss the belt from the lookbook ever so slightly, as the pop of gold adds some fun appeal.

But that one detail notwithstanding, I absolutely love how unique this gown is, and it may just be one of my favorites from the night.

Are you as smitten by this as I am?

Mandy Moore In Ralph Lauren Collection – 2018 SAG Awards

Mandy Moore attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The actress wore a striking cobalt blue Ralph Lauren Collection gown with Jimmy Choo ‘Kaylee’ sandals and a black and blue box clutch.

This look is so simple but elegant, and I think it really signifies Mandy’s place as a respected television actress. The look is mature and confident and also stylish and striking–everything a respected actress’s look should possess.

And can we talk about this makeup? The matte nude lip is utter perfection, and the pop of blue eyeshadow in the inner corner of her eyes remind us that this lady may be a sophisticated professional, but she still knows a thing or two about having fun.

Jackie Cruz In Rami Kadi – 2018 SAG Awards

Jackie Cruz attended the 2018 SAG Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday (January 21).

The ‘Orange is the New Black’ actress wore a dramatic Rami Kadi gown with diamond jewelry and matching headpiece.

If you’ve been waiting for the ultra drama of the night, I think we can agree that it has arrived! There’s not much I love more than ostrich feathers, and when you have an entire ballgown of ombré ostrich feathers, well, I’m a happy camper!

I am disappointed in the fit of the bodice, however, as it genuinely detracts from the impact this gown could make, and I feel the styling of the headbands is a bit too costumey.

What do you think–am I being too harsh, or are my concerns valid?
