Continuing on with the award season for this year, the Screen Actors Guild Awards (SAG) recognized and embraced unparalleled talents in both the television and movie industry. It brought together members of a united community of both incredible ability and steadfast determination; outstanding transformation and unforgettable emotion; individualistic style and dazzling spirit. Praising the beauty of acting and acknowledging the powers of a determined union, the Screen Actors Guild Awards gave off feelings of a welcoming warmth, an intriguing uniqueness, and an evident power. The Screen Actors Guild Awards also gave off fashions of immense style and both sparkling and simplistic grandeur.
From midnight blue and black hues to bright, shining whites; from metallic silvers and golds to subdued, light pales; from seductive sheers to satin classics; from shining sparkles to feminine ruffles and delicate lace…the fashions of the SAG Awards were wonderful, polar opposites. Some designs absorbed spring trends, while others dared to stray away from the expected. Some designs made loud statements, while others stayed simply quiet. Always holding an undying love for a red carpet full of exquisite diversity and thrilling excitement, I was extremely content with the fashions I saw this year. The noticeable differences of color, structure, texture, and cut caught my attention and intrigued my eyes and my thoughts. The designs came from both sides of fashion’s many spectrums. And there were three looks from the night that intrigued more than the others…
Nicole Kidman looked absolutely breathtaking in this sparkling Vivienne Westwood, couture gown. With sequined, glittering blue details, sheer, seductive energies, dramatic, floral applique intricacies, and confident, thigh-high slit cuts, this piece of couture was magnificent. Glamour radiated off of Nicole Kidman on the red carpet, making her glow. The look was enchanting in its modern elegance, bringing with it an air of both sleekness and regality; it was majestically contemporary. It was truly bewitching. Kidman looked fantastic.
A gown with beautiful, lush satin that shined perfectly. A gown with a dark blue high-low skirt that challenged commonality and welcomed spontaneity. A gown with a tightly alluring, ivory silk bustier that added a magnetic thrill. A gown with a smooth, flowing bow, that added a playful vibe. This Dior Haute Couture gown on Marion Cotillard was effortlessly chic. It was harmonious in its simplistic color-blocking design and fluid texture. It was outstanding in its differences, in its unique, architectural sovereignty.
Flowing on the red carpet with a beautifully ruffled, navy train, this dazzling Zac Posen gown looked extraordinary on Amanda Seyfried. This mermaid silhouetted, dark-hued creation is one of enormous appeal, skillfully emphasizing Seyfried’s shape, wonderfully allowing Seyfried’s alabaster skin to shimmer. The gown connected simplicity to loud substance; gracefulness to energetic force. And the long, diamond, Art Deco necklace only added to the look’s tremendous appeal. Amanda Seyfried made both her vigor and charm seen to the world.
The actors and actresses were seen and their voices were heard.
The designs worn on the red carpet were seen and their stunning qualities were felt.
And now on to the Academy Awards…
