40ish at the Screen Actors Guild Awards 2013
This is the point in award's season where I start to get a bit more jaded. I found a lot of the dresses tonight a bit boring. Or kind of tacky. I suspect the woman who are walking red carpet after red carpet are likely feeling the same. It is hard to pick a dress that is current and that works for your personality and your shape. The best wear the dress. The rest let the dress wear them. Or are easily forgotten.
There were more than a few boring dresses tonight. Contrasted by a few trying to work the trends and failing.
All the 40+ ladies, and gentlemen that I selected (good or bad) can be found in my 2013 Red Carpet Pinterest Board.
I couldn't decide on a top 10 favourites. I found that I was starting to try and justify outifts to get to ten. So I decided if it didn't wow me right away. I would leave it for your viewing pleasure on Pinterest.
Naomi Watts continues her Red Carpet 2013 Hot streak in this lovely gray lace Marchesa gown. I also liked the soft waves and red hot lips. She looked like a Hollywood bombshell.
Jennifer Garner looked spectacular in this gold Oscar de la Renta gown. She looked like a feminine version of an Oscar award.
I immediately typed "LOVE" when I first saw the picture of Julianna Margulies in this black and white Chado Ralph Rucci gown paired with a fantasic pair of sandals. But I see other comments on-line that I may be in the minority here. But I am okay with that.
I am not normally a fan of sea-foam / mint. But this colour looks lovely on Viola Davis - and even better on the TV screen than this photo. And I love that she decided not to wear one of her many wigs and have her hair au naturel.
Sofia Vergara is always a bombshell. Tonight was no different in this Donna Karan Atelier white lame gown. White can be seen as a bit bridal, but not this dress. And not on Sofia.
My final favourite is Jane Lynch. She made my favourite list because she wore a dress in a shape that she knows works for her, but went outside of her comfort zone in the studded detail on the bodice. She looks beautiful.
Also looking lovely were Shaun Robinson, Helen Hunt, Sally Field, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Jessica Lange, Jacki Weaver and Gretchen Mol. Even Carmen Electra looked lovely - how often do you read that?
There were a number of ladies who didn't shine as brightly as usual - Julianne Moore is one. While I loved the black and white skirt of her dress, the top just seemed ill fitting. Angela Kinsley would have looked great if she had just lined the bottom of her dress. Gabrielle Carteris wore a dark shawl (over a white dress) that made it look like she was attending someone's wedding on a cool summer event. Not an award's show.
But it was Signourey Weaver that was the one lady whose dress really disappointed. It was simply ill fitting and unflattering. She deserves better.
It was Dick Van Dyke's night. He and his wife Arlene Silver just sparkled on the red carpet. This dark purple gown was a gorgeous choice for Arlene. Although I might have left the white boa clutch at home.
Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel working their Blue Steel stares on the red carpet. Although Idina looks like she might be ready to crack up instead.
Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory are such a cute couple.
Steve Buscemi and Jo Andres look just so smart together. Plus I love her glasses.
And of course, no couples style recap would be complete without Jon and Jennifer (as in Hamm and Westfeldt).
Finally, my choice for Eye Candy over 40 at the Screen Actors Guild Awards is...John Slattery.
Who was your favourite tonight?
