It's been a looong time since I did an award show post, and since I consider watching award shows to be one of my best skills, I thought the least I could do was bring back my review posts. I was going to after the Globes, but honestly I was bored to tears looking at those dresses. Last night, however, different story.
Apart from the fact that Global messed up the start of the show and we had to sit through 40 minutes of Debbie Travis's horrible design competition, the SAG Awards were pretty good. Ok so maybe they we boring, but the ladies were pretty decked out. I had some major favs. And some of them made me want to turn back on Debbie Travis.
Jessica came out of the woodwork and suddenly everyone is in love with her, myself included. She's SO good in everything I've seen her in, and she killed it with this red dress. I'm officially deeming her the new Kate Winslet. In that she will always look perfect and will only take awesome rolls. Well played Jessica Chastian, well played.
Truth - I can't stand this girl. I know she's America's sweetheart, and I will probably get hatemail for saying that, but I hate her big phoney smile and how she acts like she was the good one at that Oscars that she hosted. (You know she was terrible too). That said, her dress was gorgeous. Seriously, I don't know if Rachel Zoe is still her stylist (or did she go with Brad??) but whoever it is, they did well.
So, there is green in this dress, and I'm not a fan of green. But something about this dress speaks to me...specifically it's saying "Adriane, you need to get yourself a job one day that will let you buy Dior". The waist, the drape of the skirt, her perfect little French bob. She's a Parisian dream and I love it.
Yes. This dress. So it's a bit strange, but in another life I would like to be tall and rail thin and I will buy this dress and wear it to the grocery store.
I don't know how I feel about Amanda. She's gorgeous. She's a very good actress. But she had this sort of dead-eyes thing going on that kind of gives me chills. I still like her though, and this dress is the best thing I've ever seen her in. It totally takes away from her eerie vacant stare.
Now, there were a few dresses that will probably result in a few fired stylists and a good Joan Rivers flogging. Lets dive in.
Maybe it's just the hair? Ok, so its just the hair. The dress actually beautiful but I'm punishing her for looking so bad from the neck up. I think January Jones is one of the most beautiful ladies in Hollywood, and maybe she just wanted to be cheeky, but come on. These pictures are going to last forever. Do better next time please. You're super rich after all and that dress deserved good hair.
Dear god. Ok, I get that Sofia has curves and wants to embrace them. High five for that. But this dress is horrrrrible. Almost as horrible as her obnoxious personality. (Sorry SV fans!)
Julianne is stunning, and is almost always perfect at these things. Not this time. The neckline was not flattering at all, the dress didn't fit properly, and the floral was just not good. First fail ever I think, but a fail nonetheless.
What did you guys think of the show? Watching award shows in dreary January is the best escapism. You can totally ignore the fact that it's gross outside and focus on such important matters like how deep side parts are very in. Overall, this year at the SAGs there were some very cool dresses, and some not so cool ones. But really, all I want to know is WHERE IS JENNIFER ANISTON??? Ugh. Please come back to award shows. You are pretty. The world has almost forgotten the John Meyer thing, and Brangelina are almost never there, I promise.
