SAG Awards 2016: Red Carpet Review

sag awards featured pic

Unfortunately, I could not find a Fav on the Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet, but what I did find were a few If Only’s

I loved Alicia Vikander in this Louis Vuitton color-blocked sequin gown. It would have been perfect if only the hemline was shortened just a tad (enough for the tip of the shoe to peep through). That one little detail would have given this look a much cleaner finish and taken it from almost to My Fav.

Viola Davis looks absolutely stunning! The color, cut, and fit of this dress works great on her… if only it was in another material :( I hate the fact that this material holds and shows all the wrinkles and creases, and the only way to keep it looking smooth is to stay on your feet and not move (not to mention the slightest sign of moisture could ruin your evening).

Anna Faris

Anna Faris looked darling in red but again, if only it wasn’t this fabric! 

Now, on to the questionable looks of the evening…

Portia Doubleday

Let’s start with My Fav look of the night…

Portia Doubleday

Portia Doubleday (Novis dress | Farbod Barsum clutch)

As the saying goes, “If you’re going to do it, do it right” – and that she did!  She followed all the rules to wearing see-through (mine anyway) which are as follows:

  • #1 The body MUST be together underneath! 
  • #2 Wear proper undergarments and make sure they are well-fitted
  • #3 Carry yourself with confidence and class (i.e., Act Like A Lady)

Then there’s the look that made me smile…

Liv Tyler – Sexy Momma! (Literally)

And the look that got a hold of my last nerve and refused to let go…

Jennifer Aniston

What is going on with the seam down the front? Better yet, why is it even there in the first place?? Then there’s the situation at the top of the split… This is a tragedy – Who did this to her?! 

On another note: Was it just me or did the split seem to be the theme of the night?
