If I had called you this morning to tell you that there was a sea of black and blue women at the SAG Awards last night, you would have first said, “Oh, was that last night?” and then you would have thought, “that poor Rihanna…” #truth.
It’s easy to overlook the Screen Actors Guild Awards, sandwiched as they are between the Moët-mess of the Golden Globes and the Serious Business of the Academy Awards. Even the show itself, sounds more like an old lady problem than a glamour parade, but as always, there were some pretty proper gowns to gab about.
Top three looks (by far), belong to Marion Cottilard, January Jones and Amanda Seyfried – in that order. Cotillard is rarely a snore. By now, we’ve come to expect her
in Dior Haute Couture looking fresh-faced and flawless. January is also reliable: as a month (frigid) and as a fashion muse (marvelous). Last night’s Prabal Gurung-Bowie moment was a case in example. The neckline, the red lip, the polished pompadour! Has anyone ever been this universally admired for this long? Call it Girl Crush, Uninterrupted.
Then there was Nicole… brittle, flat-ironed hair, severely-frozen makeup, and a dress engineered from the remaining scraps of Tonya Harding’s fleeting ice skating career. Black and blue and tragic all over.
