Leading the black dresses pack was, undoubtedly, Emma Stone. It’s a subjective opinion, biensur, my fashperspective being completely blindsided by Emma herself – I really like her and especially by the fact that she’s wearing Alexander McQueen. However, I can’t deny that Angelina Jolie comes in a dangerously close second position. But then again, she’s always among my favorites on any Red Carpet. And that’s surely not only because of her outfits.
However, since the black dresses were so well represented on the 2012 SAG Awards Red Carpet, I had to pick a best from the rest, aside from my already mentioned weaknesses. And here I go, again picking two dresses: Stacy Keibler’s black lace Marchesa and Jayma Mays black sequined Reem Acra. (hit the jump to see the rest of the black dresses from the 2012 SAG Awards Red Carpet; check out the gallery here)
Sadly, although the dress is flawless and the lady herself is truly impeccable, Stacy Keibler does nothing for me. (nor does her date, d’ailleurs). Jayma Mays I think is lovely all in all and I like her smile. Reem Acra’s sequined dress is a bit too dramatic for Jayma, but looking at the rest of the black dresses, I’m relieved whenever I lay my eyes on Jayma.
Tina Fey’s Versace black dress was like a long lost twin sister of Jane Krakowski’s Antonio Berardi dress. Although beautiful in their own rights, the two dresses, together, on the same Red Carpet, were a certified sartorial fail. And talking about fail – have you seen Heather Morris’ Masai Payan? Oh, what a complicated nightmare of a dress! Glenn Close in black Zac Posen didn’t impress me at all while Ashlee Simpson’s black Jenny Packham spiderweb dress was nice. I just don’t understand what Ashlee’s doing there, that’s all (I know, I know, she’s there as “the girlfriend of…”). Oh, and is it just me, or Amber Heard is a sweeter, taller version of Scarlett Johansson? (again another Zac Posen failing to impress me). Amber Riley. Oh gurl? Whoever told you that dress looks good (on you) needs major style revisions!
