Although you may hear differently, the true dominant color on the 2012 SAG Awards Red Carpet was white. White – ish, neutral. As the 2012 edition of the Golden Globes showed us already, the Red Carpet tendency is towards neutral and white. And last night’s ceremony was no exception to the trends.
If I’d had to pick a favorite, I’d definitely go for Viola Davis in Marchesa. And Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Haute Couture. Both of them took my breath away. There was even an awkward sartorial moment with Julianna Margulies and Katrina Bowden. The dresses they were wearing were heartbreakingly similar. Only they were different. In details and label (Julianna was wearing Calvin Klein while Katrina Bowden was wearing Amsale. Hit the jump to see both dresses side by side and pick the original; check out the gallery here)
Something unusual for the Red Carpet (at least lately): Rose Byrne. She was wearing a white jumpsuit from Elie Saab and her hair, she said, was inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer circa Scarface. Intriguing, isn’t it? She was wearing it well, anyway! And so was Tilda Swinton who was wearing a white draped Lanvin dress. And who was at the same table as Angelina Jolie – they were like day and night! One dressed in shiny black and the other in bridal white. Interesting!
The charming Berenice Bejo (who I’m dying to see in The Artist!) was dressed in Ralph Lauren. However, something put me off about her outfit and I can’t really put my finger on it! Can you? I could go on like this, but I’m afraid the other white wearing ladies were too bridal for my taste. There was also a handful of soft gray hues or other pale tints which were included in this “white” category: Octavia Spencer, Naya Rivera and Lea Michele are just an example of that. Also including two black & white dresses: Maya Rudolph in Naeem Khan and Emilia Clarke in Chanel.
Kelly Osbourne’s Badgley Mischka – interesting but not my kind; Kaley Cuoco’s Romona Keveza – bridal snowball; Jenna Ushkovitz’s Rebecca Minkoff white flowery – completely unflattering; Naya Rivera’s pale gray Naeem Khan dress – simple and nice; Gretchen Mol’s white L’Wren Scott dress – those golden patches ruined everything! Sarah Hyland’s white – ish Temperley London – lovely, though it reminds me of Miley Cyrus so I don’t think that’s a good sign overall; Judy Greer’s white Collette Dinnigan dress – bridal much? I’ll let you to the gallery, tell me who I’ve missed, please? (the pictures come from here)
