The Good, the Bad and the Downright Ugly at 2014 SAG Awards …

I’m not going to write a long post about the fashion shortcomings of the stars once again at yet another disappointing red carpet event.  Instead, I will simply focus on those that were good, those that were kinda in between and those that were a fashion crime in my book.

Let’s look at the good and believe me there really weren’t that many ….

Golden Girl of the moment, Lupita Nyong’d – this girl can dress!!  Amazing choice of colour on her skin tone.  Love she went monochrome like the red cape dress at the Golden Globes, perhaps this will become her signature??  This girl is a novice when it comes to red carpets but she is absolutely leading the way in my book!

Amy Adams – a major miss at the Golden Globes I felt when she removed her cape ….. I’m not a great fan of her style normally BUT I really do like this dress on her.  I think it’s the cobalt blue against her hair colouring and skin tone which is really striking

Julie Bowen from Modern Family is a definite hit in her gorgeous gown.  Love the asymmetrical print with clashing orange top.  It’s fits her perfectly and really shows off her figure as well.

Oprah Winfrey – you gotta love Oprah!!  She looks great in the deep purple, fitted dress.  Oprah has curves so this really hugs her body in all the right places.  Loved her hair as well.

Now for the In Betweeners ….

Cate Blanchett – loved the top of this dress when she stood at the podium on stage, but a full length photo doesn’t look great.  Love the colour on her and the neckline is very elegant but the dress just doesn’t fit very well at the waist hence, dare I say it, making her look wide at the hip????

Giuliana Rancic – Darling of Fashion Police on E! is neither a hit nor a miss in this dress.  Yes it’s a lovely neckline and the deep rich purple reminds me of Cadburys, but it’s all a bit blah.  Do you know what I mean?  Just a bit eh.  Blah. Not memorable in the slightest and won’t be making any headlines.  Hated the hair and those “snail” ear rings

Sofia Vegara – My usual favourite as I love how she dresses her body!  But what has happened?  Where are Sofia’s curves??  Where’s the gorgeous hourglass shape we know and adore?

Now onto the BAD …….. Kerry, Julia, Sandra, Michelle and Emma …… You guys are KILLING me right now!

Kerry Washington – once the fashion darling of 2013.  What the hell?  Are your pregnancy hormones destroying your taste?  I just can’t comprehend who would’ve thought you looked good?  Please ditch the stylist.

Sandra Bullock – I am so deeply disappointed that for the second time in the last fortnight you have let me down in the style stakes.  This looked like you are advertising the latest Quality Street sweetie.  And note to Sandra … the green Quality Street are always left at the end.

Julia Roberts – Once a sex siren, once an onscreen goddess but now a mother and a wife yes I get that things have changed over the years BUT I HATED this colour on her and I HATED the fact that it’s a jumpsuit and not even a cute one at that.  It just looks as if she hasn’t made an effort at all with this.

Michelle Dockery – for the love of god can you please pull your shoulders back when posing for a photo!  Surely she would know the important of good posture in a photo??? Her slumped pose make her breasts look like they are at her waist and I hate the match match shoes.  Plus is it just me or does she look bloody miserable??

Emma Thompson – Are you going through a late mid life crisis???  First of all you embarrass the hell out of your daughter by being drunk on stage at the Golden Globes and then you decide to don an awful looking dress which actually looked fine at the top but then went into a weird, slashed bottom with ankle hem AND quite simply the worst footwear I have EVER seen on the red carpet.  You should be ashamed, your bunions couldn’t be THAT BAD!!!!!!

COME ON LADIES!  Step it up a gear!!!  My 17 and 18 year old school formal customers could give you a run for your money in their Belle dresses!!!!

Fancy a change like Beyonce??

It was all over the media this week when Beyonce posted a selfie with shorn locks!  Gone was the mass of blonde waves we all know her for and in their place was a short, pixie style haircut.

 

Now this pixie hairstyle has been very popular over the years with the likes of Emma Watson, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway and of course Halle Berry all championing this ok.

I thought it so very brave of Beyonce to go all the way with this look because I also have really long hair and it becomes a comfort blanket at times and a curtain to hide behind if necessary as well.  With really short hair, you are so exposed!  There’s nowhere to hide! Your skin needs to be flawless and a petite, slim jawline is a must to sport this look in order to maintain an air of femininity.  I also applauded Beyonce for trying something different, especially now that she’s a working mum, surely having less hair to style each day is bound to be a relief, right?  BUT alas, within days Beyonce must have felt the overexposure of her scalp just a tad too much to handle as a photo emerged today of her showing a short cut at the back with longer layers at the front.

I’m really disappointed.  I think this look is ghastly! It’s neither here nor there and the hair looks in really bad condition.

In fact, Giuliana Rancic from E News had a similar “non-descript” hairstyle recently which I’m glad to say she has changed to a sleeker, more groomed bob.

I think where hair is concerned you need to go either long or short with a definitive style and shape to the hair.  Beyonce this new look is so blah honestly and looks really untidy and dare I say it not becoming of a DIVA!!   Please change it immediately!!!
