It’s only the second week and awards season is already in full bloom. I didn’t critique the fashions of the 2014 Golden Globes, because honestly, I wasn’t inspired by any of the looks. Thankfully last night’s SAG awards proved otherwise for me, with more than a few looks that made me very happy and a few that made me want to scream. Let’s get in to the MESS and YES fashions of the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Lupita Nyong’o has taken the world by storm, picking up awards at every turn and looking her best while doing so. The 12 Years a Slave Best Supporting Actress winner stunned the red carpet in a signature turquoise floral embroidered gown by Gucci. This was the best look of the night hands down! The beautiful, rich tone of turquoise against her flawless skin tone was a very smart choice, she arrived looking like a winner before she had even won! I cannot wait to see how stylish her year will be! YES!
Old Hollywood glamour proved to work for Amy Adams last night. The American Hustle star looked beautiful in a navy blue, illusion dress by Antonio Berardi featuring classy cut-outs and a jeweled encrusted wraparound belt. YES!
Matthew McConaughey’s other half arrived in a curve hugging Donna Karan Atelier gown that fit her body like a glove! Although the gown fit beautifully on her, I was a little disappointed with her hair style. For the type of event she attended and the classiness of the gown, her hair was too relaxed of a style. And I would loved to have seen a statement necklace or dangling earrings to make up for her bare décolletage. Dress=YES! Hair and lack of accessories=MESS!
Sofia Vegara gave her best Vegas showgirl impression in another look from Donna Karan Atelier. Although the sequin beaded gown looked fabulous on her, it’s a look that has been done before. When you’re known for having a voluptuous body it can be easy to wear the same style of dress. I saw the Zac Posen gown she wore at the Golden Globes last week, and I thought that was an improvement for her. I wish I could have seen something different this time. MESS!
Everyone’s favorite fashionista and mommy-to-be glowed in an open back hand-embroidered crop top and a pleated silk skirt by Prada. She paired her gown with a clutch by Prada and Harry Winston jewelry. I will be honest, this was a bold move. I mean, a pregnant woman in a crop top?! Very bold indeed! Although it was daring this look was just plain bad. I’ve noticed that a lot of people are giving her a pass because it’s our beloved Kerry Washington, but here at Miss Monet I don’t give passes for fashion failures and that’s what this was. I hate to utter this word but it was a MMMMESSS! I still love you Kerry!
The American Hustle star wore a strapless, sequined, silk embroidered gown by Dior. Although it was sequined, this gown comes off as a bit plain, maybe it doesn’t photograph well. It fit her perfectly and is refreshing for the young Oscar winner, however I am still going to have to give this a MESS.
I could be in the minority but I did not enjoy this look on Sandra. I don’t understand what’s happening, she was doing so well in the fashion department in 2013, but the start of this year have been a few misses. Although the emerald-green is a beautiful color on her, like Camilla Alves, the lack of accessories makes this satin Lanvin gown very plain-looking. It looks completely unfinished, like she was in a rush and forgot to accessorize properly. MESS!
Lady O proved why she still reigns supreme! Arriving in a long-sleeved purple gown by Badgley Mischka, accessorizing with a stylishly placed brooch, purple eye shadow, and flowing curls. YES!
Mariah, it’s the SAG Awards not the MTV VMAS. What made you think that a black Saint Laurent Paris cocktail dress and fishnets was appropriate for this type of event. You are too much of a self-proclaimed “diva” to have played yourself like this. MESS!
Last but not least, Isla Fisher went for Old Hollywood glam in a silk Oscar de la Renta gown. Her tousled hair and makeup added a more sultry effect. My only wish is that this gown was a different color, I think it really would have paired well with her hair if the dress had been in a more vibrant hue. But I still give it a YES!
Well there you have it a few looks from the 2014 SAG Awards. After watching this show, I’ve learned 3 things. Number 1, this spring will be full of deep, rich, vibrant colors. Number 2, the art of accessorizing should be taught more. And number 3, if you’re not going to come correct, don’t come.
What did you think of the fashions of the 2014 Screen Actors Guild Awards? Were they a MESS or a YES?
