2013 SAG Rundown

What’s black and white and boring all over?  The 2013 SAG Award dresses on the red carpet.  Don’t get us wrong – we LOVE black and white, it’s actually this editor’s two favorite colors, like Reese Witherspoon’s 2011 Oscar gown, or the Marchesa gowns sported by Viola Davis and Stacy Keibler at last year’s SAG Awards.  We thought red was unusually popular at the Golden Globes two weeks ago, but it seemed all anyone was wearing this time around was black, white and navy… And not too many of these runway frocks were particularly thrilling.  Our favorite dress of the night was Marion Cotillard, who was also very sick, but arrived anyway in this gorgeous white and blue Dior Haute Couture number (pictured, above).  She never disappoints us.  Jennifer Lawrence, Amanda Seyfried, Nicole Kidman, Busy Phillips, and Jessica Lange all donned not-so-exciting navy gowns.  Anne Hathaway, Jenna Fischer, Michelle Dockery, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jenna Elfman, Angela Kinsey, Elisabeth Moss, and Kelly Osbourne all wore pretty boring black gowns – many also had sheer detailing.  Dockery’s frock had a flash of some sexy side boob, but her dark makeup and pale skin made her look like a vampire seductress, and not the lovely little Brit that she is.  Sofia Vergara, Jayma Mays, and Kerry Washington all wore white, but Washington looked the best in Rodarte (pictured, above right).  And we love Sofia, but come on lady- pick another dress shape!  Julie Bowen, Clarie Danes, and Julianne Moore all wore ill-fitting black and white gowns, which was surprising, since they all looked stunning at this year’s Golden Globes.  Julianna Marguiles made a complete 180 from her last appearance, and looked amazing in black and white by Chado Ralph Rucci and a pair of Christian Louboutin cutout sandals (pictured, above left).  January Jones also sported a stunning black and white gown by Prabal Gurung (pictured, bottom left), but her David Bowie hair (which is apparently falling out) ruined it for us.  Jessica Chastain and Kaley Cuoco sported two lovely red gowns, but we were kind of sick of them after everyone wore shades of scarlet two weeks ago.  We did like Chastain’s Zero Dark Thirty director Kathryn Bigelow’s flattering long-sleeved bow gown (they’re pictured together, bottom right).  She looks incredible for 61-years-old!  Well, here’s hoping the Oscars are more exciting than this!
