Not gonna lie. I found this year’s Golden Globes red carpet really underwhelming. Not one dress stood out. Thankfully the stars stepped up their game for Saturday’s Screen Actors Guild Awards.
Without further ado…my Best Dressed picks:
Amy Adams in Antonio Berardi
If you ask me, this is an all-time best for Amy. It’s Old Hollywood without being cliche. The blue really suits her coloring, the gown fits her perfectly, and the belt adds just the right amount of interest.
Michelle Dockery in J. Mendel
WOW. This gown immediately made me think of that old adage “Simplicity is the key to elegance.” It isn’t revolutionary, but it’s beautiful and exactly right for Michelle. And she wisely kept the jewelry, hair and makeup (save for that bright red lip) lowkey.
Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci
Confession: I am absolutely obsessed with Lupita. This newbie is schooling red carpet veterans. I dare you to find a photo of her making a fashion misstep during a public appearance.
THAT FACE. THAT SKIN. She is stunning. And that aquamarine looks amazing on her. Between this gown and the one she wore for the Critics Choice Awards, I’m pretty sure she’s already won red carpet season.
I’m beyond excited for her Oscars debut. She. Is. Going. To. Slay.
Also, Lupita is besties with Michelle. Talk about a friendship made in fashion heaven.
Julia Roberts in Valentino
What can I say? I’m a sucker for jumpsuits. It’s an unexpected choice, but that’s why I like it. (Pretty-but-boring gowns have dominated the rc this year.) Also, that particular pink looks great on Julia.
She looks youthful without trying too hard. Two thumbs up.
