The Screen Actors Guild Awards of 2014 flourished with our favourite actors and actresses in amazing gowns and suits that we, as an audience, drooled over for the duration of the red carpet.
Throughout the course of the red carpet event, however, I noticed that I either loved or hated the outfits.
For example, Meryl Streep, an amazing actress and acting visionary who I admire for her work, could have been styled in a more flattering way. The black Stella McCartney number that she sported was less than praising of her figure and potential. We all do remember how well Ms Streep cleaned up in The Devil Wears Prada do we not? I personally love Meryl Streep but I think that we would have liked to see her be more ‘elegant Hollywood legend’ rather than her ‘I have no figure’ statement that I believe was completely unintentional.
On the other hand, Meryl Streep’s accessories, hair and makeup definitely saved the ensemble, making her look as lovely as always and we congratulate her on her nomination!
I had managed to narrow down my top five favourite gowns, which I will announce in a true ‘award ceremony’ manner…
Coming in 5th is Ms Jennifer Lawrence, wearing Dior
Jennifer Lawrence was nominated for her role in American Hustle and walked away with the award of “outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture”
My fourth favourite look was found on English actress Emilia Clarke, Wearing Calvin Klein. Emilia was nominated for “outstanding performance by an ensemble in a drama series” in the HBO Series Game of Thrones
In third, The Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev, wearing Ellie Saab
In Second we have Sofia Vergara, wearing Donna Karan Atelier. Sofia was nominated and became recipient of the “outstanding performance by an ensemble in a comedy series” award for Modern Family.
In first place, My favourite look of the night. A woman whose presence on my TV screen absolutely blew me away was none other than Lupita Nyong’o. Lupita stunned us all in her Gucci number.
One other TV personality who continues to shock me is the one and only Kelly Osbourne! Although not an actress or award recipient of any sort, the E! Fashion Police star looked absolutely stunning in Zac Posen. As an interviewer, I think that she stole the spotlight from her interviewees!
