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!!!!

MTV Movie Awards 2013 … The good, the bad and the downright ugly!

This year’s MTV Movie Awards had a mixed bag of fashion styles on the red carpet.  Some celebrities got it bang on but some unfortunately missed by a long mile!!

For the first time in a few months, I’m delighted to say that Kim Kardashian finally got it right in a black ensemble which fitted her pregnancy curves perfectly.  She looks back to her good old self in this outfit!  Selena Gomez also shone in a short, gold beaded dress which harps back to the Charleston era but I have to say I really don’t like her hairstyle .

Hitting a BUM note completely is Keisha.  It looks like she got dressed in the dark!! On what planet would this actually look good?  The answer is none.  Completely unflattering and trashy.  I can’t believe this but I’m also going to pan Kelly Washington’s outfit and I’ve had nothing but glowing reports of her fashion style recently but this unfortunately was a miss.  The main problem for me is the back of the dress.  It looks very homemade in that the yellow part of the skirt looks like it was stitched on as an after thought.  It also adds bulk to her bottom which no woman wants!!  Such a shame as I think this had the potential to be brilliant but the application and execution just wasn’t up to scratch.

 

Still in love with Kerry Washington’s style..

I know this won’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I just love the way that Kerry Washington has fun with fashion and is willing to try new things.  She’s a tiny girl, so rather than wear the “usual” tried and tested fitted gown that we see so much of on the red carpet, she has instead gone for what looks like a pretty lace top and separate billowing, brocade skirt.

The colours are reminiscent of a candy box and remind me of a packet of Lovehearts or Refreshers! Just so sweet, simple and fashion forward.  Perhaps not something we would wear to the local pub but perfect for a red carpet event.  Kerry keeps the whole look very simple with loose hair and minimal accessories.  I absolutely love this!!

Kerry Washington …. my new girl crush!

OMG, I am falling in love with DJANGO star, Kerry Washington’s style!  She looks so sophisticated and elegant, yet somehow young and fresh.  She also seems to be willing to really change things up at each of the premiere’s for the film.  Kerry is a very lucky girl and suits everything!  Even though some of the styles are very classy and structured, she still manages to look girlie and feminine.  I’m looking forward to seeing more of her style!
