Here is a roundup of what I feel was a slightly underwhelming night at the 2020 SAG Awards on Sunday (January 19) in LA, compared to the Golden Globe Awards which gave us many dramatic moments.
Kristen Gutoskie: ‘ The Handmaid’s Tale’ gave us one of the few princess moment in Jenny Packham Pre-Fall 2020. I adore the colour and the embellished details, but I’m a little unsure about the bow. Hearts On Fire & Mémoire jewelry, plus Stuart Weitzman sandals completed her look.
Helena Bonham Carter: Love of dislike Helena’s style, the one thing for certain is that she will always keep things interesting. The British actress, who took home the award, was decked out in a Self-Portrait check sequin dress from the Fall 2019 collection. Were the accessories OTT? Yes. But subtlety has never been in Helena’s vocabulary.
Storm Reid: Much like Sarah Hyland, the actress kept things young, fun, and short wearing a beautiful Giambattista Valli Fall 2019 Haute Couture frock. I love how the fraying of the skirt gives the look of layered feathers, and the effortless styling which included white Christian Louboutin ‘Optichoc’ pumps.
Amanda Brugel: My breath was taken away by the actress in this stunning Sebastian Gunawan gown. From glorious colour, the draped sleeves and complementary styling with the Marzook ‘Pill’ clutch, I would say this was one of the best on the night.
America Ferrera: The actress had a little announcement to make wearing simple Paule Ka velvet dress. The biggest surprise here is the lack of colour, yet America looks as beautiful as ever.
Margaret Qualley: The young actress was a presenter on the night is known for her girlie, girl style, so some might find it hard to buy into this Chanel Pre-Fall 2020 suiting option. The gold Chanel brooch and slick cut keeps me interested.
Nina Kiri: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ actress presented one of my favourite looks on the night wearing a Georges Chakra Fall 2019 Couture silver sleeveless dress. Some might be put off by the sheer bodice, but I love the beaded tweed skirt and tulle hem, and the complementary Christian Louboutin Twistissima Strass silver mesh pumps with crystal embellishment. Sheer done right for me.
Camila Mendes: The design of the Ralph & Russo dress is beautiful, but I keep going back and forth between “something’s missing,” to “it needed nothing else.” Thoughts? Swarovski jewels completed her look. Catherine Zeta Jones: I have nothing but disappointment for CZJ and this Julien Macdonald dress. The dress feels very dated for me. She can do so much better.
Glenn Close: The actress was looking regal in this rich navy blue in Oscar de la Renta Spring 2020 dress.
Patricia Arquette: I have no words for this as I’m in utter shock.
Priah Ferguson: If this Red Valentino Resort 2020 yellow dress styled with a magenta sash, Mulberry ‘Micro Seaton’ bag and Malone Souliers ‘Penelope’ pumps doesn’t banish your Monday blues, I don’t know what will. Atelier Swarovski Fine Jewelry By Paige Novick Collection completed her look.
Nathalie Emmanuel: I am very surprised by Nathalie’s choice in this Miu Miu gown. It’s just wayyyy too much fabric with a bow.
Emily Hampshire: Sticking to J. Mendel – because if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it – the actress was a vision in mauve tulle. Harry Kotlar studs and a pretty pink Tyler Ellis ‘Perry’ clutch completed her look.
Yvonne Strahovski: I couldn’t get on board with the restrictiveness of this Khyeli Spring 2020 dress.
Logan Browning: The actress mixed ethereal – her Jason Wu gown. With an edge – courtesy of her nose stud, to present herself on the red carpet at the ambassador of the event.
Sadie Sink: The ‘Stranger Things’ actress was looking all grown up, but not too mature in her embellished Gucci gown.
Maya Hawke: As much as love this Giambattista Valli Spring 2019 Haute Couture bustier and trouser combo, Maya failed to sell it to me. Swarovski jewels completed her look.
