2011 SAG Awards

    Last Night's 17th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards sure didn't disappoint...or at least when it came to the red carpet fashions! There were a lot of strapless, sweetheart necklines last night which I loved, belted looks, and dresses with dramatic leg slits [scandalous!] I immediately fell in love with three looks which made choosing my best dressed favorite really challenging. Love in first sight, I loveloveloved Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueenClare Danes in floral blue Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs [love!], and January Jones in black and gold lace Carolina Herrera. It's such a tough call but I have to give it to Mila Kunis as my best dressed pick of the night.  

     Mila Kunis wore the late and great Alexander McQueen -- a strapless, floor length, floral gown with a sweetheart neckline [whoah tongue twister] from the Resort 2011 collection. She was in my top best dressed picks from the Golden Globes this year in an emerald, one-shoulder Vera Wang dress, but she definitely won me over this time.   She looked so chic and so polished in this dress and the loose curls, subtle eye make up [which illuminated her beautiful eyes perfectly], Cartier jewelry, and Alexander McQueen clutch complimented her look so well -- messing up one of those elements and the whole ensemble would have been completely thrown off. I loved how she wore a belt with this dress to accentuate her waist, which was one of the biggest trend of the red carpet that night.  Like the Globes, she was nominated as the best supporting actress for her role in Black Swan, but in this McQueen dress, I felt like she looked like the leading lady.  

Oscar de la Renta
     Tina Fey of 30 Rock in a red, strapless de la Renta gown and Lea Michele of Glee in a shimmery de la Renta dress with a plunging neckline. 

Monique Lhuillier 
     Julia Stiles, who was there for the hit Showtime TV show Dexter, wore this beautiful, navy ombre Monique Lhuillier dress. Angie Harmon was also in a Monique Lhuillier floor length gown, except her dress was this whimsical pink strapless dress adorned with feathers! [i love feathers].

Cast of Glee
     I don't watch the hit show, but I must say that the leading ladies definitely caught my attention this time. As previously mentioned, Lea Michele wore an Oscar de la Renta dress. Dianna Agron was in a black Chanel Haute Couture gown,  Jayma Hays was in a dress by a designer named Jenny Packham, and Heather Morris in Romona Keveza

     Other red carpet, head turning classics were Modern Family's va-va-voom star Sofia Vergara in a very flattering royal blue, halter Roberto Cavalli dress. From the Emmys to the Globes, I've seen Sofia in strapless gowns, but I think giving her "frontal assets" [she's got ginormous knockers!] she looks best in a halter-styled dress, because they show of those mentioned assets in a flattering way. Strapless dresses give her a uni-boob effect [yuck], which doesn't suit this beautiful Columbian actress. In addition, this royal blue dress had a criss-cross stretch effect, which made the dress very form fitting and ultimately complimenting her figure.   Another red carpet pick for me [out of nowhere] is Rosario Dawson in a nude-toned J. Mendel dress with jewel-colored drop earrings. I love that little hint of color given the subtlety of the dress.

Love, KB
