SAG Awards Push Snooze Button

Many awards were given out at the 2011 Screen Actors’ Guild Awards last night, but, in our opinion, there was only one winner.  On the red carpet, that is.  Hidden amongst the drab and predictable gowns which sashayed down the carpet and past the photogs, only Mila Kunis managed to wow us with her firey red Alexander McQueen dress.  Firstly, because the fabric and the pattern were brilliant, secondly because the shape was perfect for her body and, perhaps most importantly – it was Alexander McQueen.  It takes a certain type of woman to don the amazing designs from that house, and it doesn’t always work, either.  Kunis pulls it off, doesn’t get fussy with the hair or jewelery, and wins our RCS Award for best dressed last night.  The King’s Speech may be nominated, but the night belonged to McQueen.

Welcome Back, Sports Fans!

Yep, that’s right…the fashionista sports season has just opened up with the Golden Globe awards last night. The glamour, the glitz and the gowns all paraded over the cushy red carpet of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s big event. Having been on hiatus myself for the past few months (I’ve decided to rear a tiny Fashionista, which has taken a good chunk of my time), the beauties and the beasts were both in attendance on “the rug”. Most, sadly, took beastly honours, not because they were so heinous in nature, but mostly because they looked more like prom dresses for teens than gowns for sophisticated stars (read: Carrie Underwood in her uniform of sparkle or Jennifer Love Hewitt in an ill-fitting ruffle fiasco). There were a few standouts (thank God) and the honours go to Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive and January Jones in Versace. Anne is really starting to show her fashion grit with an open back and delicate shoulder pads, while January Jones shows, well, just about everything but makes it look gorgeous. Good on ya, girls! Now we lie in wait, licking our our chops and ready for the SAG awards’ red carpet. All of this, sportsfans, is simply fodder and preparation for le Superbowl of floor length showstoppers — the Academy Awards! I think it’s time to start a fantasy red carpet pool and start choosing our star players. It’s time to bring some shine to this dreary weather, and begin to dream in silk and stilettos…
