There was an embarrassment of riches (also an embarrassment of embarrassments) at this past Saturday's Screen Actors Guild Awards. Hugh Laurie again did not win, damn it all.
However, let us move on to the dresses!
If I had to pick a single favorite among the gowns, it would be Jane Krakowski's white satin marvel. It drapes around her superbly, and is perfect for the red carpet.
The runner up is Sofia Vergara, in a two-tone dress that stood out from all of the monochrome all around her.
I did not care for Christina Applegate's pale blue chiffon from the front, but the back won me over completely.
Helen Mirren has certainly looked more spectacular, but here she looks both extremely sexy and comfortable. Would that we would all age so well!
Speaking of aging gracefully, Meryl Streep won my heart in this dazzling Balenciaga.
It is truly a pity that I could not find a full-length full frontal picture of Monique, whose gown was soft and feminine, showcasing her bounteous beauty.
The most improved award must go to Sophia Loren in Armani Prive'. Other than her outdated glasses, she looks ultra-sophisticated (the girl behind her is her daughter). The trim is completely contemporary, a modern spin on her iconic status.
There are so many more than I am going to break this into two posts!
