2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

While the ceremony will be shorter this year, the Screen Actors Guild will still hand out its annual awards. The 2021 SAG Awards will air on Sunday, April 4, in a one-hour, pre-taped event, the show’s producers announced in early March. Hostless, and absent the normal banquet and red carpet, the shows producers have revealed that they still have a lot planned to honor the best actresses and actors of the year. I am very interested in seeing what the show will be and even more importantly what the fashion will be. With the abbreviated and pre-recorded show will the stars still turn out gowns and glamour? We will have to wait till Sunday night to find out. In the meantime let’s make a couple more wishes for what could be for this years show shall we? Despite all her nominations this season Cate Blanchett has skipped out on every single virtual awards show and I HATE it. I always love seeing Cate on the red carpet and I am missing her turning out looks. I’ve picked major looks from Alberta Ferretti, archive Armani Prive, and Lanvin and I am continuing that with the look I’ve picked as the must see moment for Cate to wear for the SAG Awards, even if I am doubtful that she will zoom into the ceremony. Cate has long been a fan of Givenchy and has worn looks from all of the brands creative directors. So I would love to see her try to sell me a look from Matthew Williams helm at the brand. I have been imagining Cate wearing this one shoulder white column gown which features a macrame detailed bodice and a tassel detail from the Givenchy Fall 2021 RTW collection. This collection is far from one I really love, but I feel like this gown modified to be lined for modesty (which I am sure will happen for retail) would be a super edgy glam moment for Cate. We usually love Cate more in her classic glam moments, but when she serves up edge I am in love with her looks. I obviously would ditch the coat and style this gown with a sleek updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Bow Tie’ crystal embellished pointed toe pumps, and statement aquamarine and emerald Chopard Red Carpet Collection 2020 drop earrings would make this a major fashion moment for Cate. Elle Fanning is nominated with her fellow The Great cast members for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. After her super glam custom Gucci gown with Fred Leighton jewels at the Golden Globe Awards I am dying to see Elle give us a super glam moment for the SAG Awards. Now as she isn’t nominated individually or presenting I’m not sure that we will, but I definitely believe that if this were a normal year that Elle would have served up a MAJOR glam moment. I just fell in love with this white strapless beaded tea length cocktail dress from the Georges Hobeika Spring 2021 Couture collection which features sheer detail, 3D floral embroidery, and POCKETS. I feel like Elle with her classically glamorous sensibility would easily be able to sell this look to me. Cocktail dresses for the SAG Awards aren’t really a norm for me, but I think that with a sleek retro inspired updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white Sergio Rossi ‘Sr1’ crystal studded square toe ankle strap sandals, and a dazzling white diamond Harry Winston teardrop and scroll detailed collar necklace would definitely elevate this look to the level of glamour needed for a major awards show red carpet. Gillian Anderson took home both a Golden Globe Award and a Critics Choice Award for her performance as Margaret Thatcher in The Crown. That same performance has earned her a nomination for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series at the 2021 SAG Awards. She is up against her co-star Emma Corrin and I would say that it will most likely be Emma that takes home the Actor. Now in terms of fashion Gillian has exclusively worn Dior Couture this awards season. While I don’t hate her looks I also would love to see her branch out. I know Gillian has some fashion chops and I would love to see her give cozy glamour wearing this petrol blue knit Loewe Spring 2021 RTW long sleeve gown which features multicolored sequined strewn about, a thigh high split, and a knotted sash belt. While a knit gown is not something we would expect to see for any major award shows and I totally understand, but in lockdown I love the idea. Why not take advantage of it now? To make this look SAG Awards perfect for Gillian I would style it with a loose romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, a pair of petrol blue crystal embellished mesh Gianvito Rossi ‘Rania 105’ pointed toe pumps, and dazzling white diamond London collection by De Beers ‘Thames Path’ teardrop cluster earrings. There was a huge snub that the Golden Globes and the Critics Choice Awards didn’t nominate Michaela Coel for her performance in I May Destroy You. Well the SAG Awards rectified that and I am hoping that she will bring us a major look. I went through a lot of options when I was thinking about what I wanted to see Michaela wearing for the SAG Awards. Ultimately I decided to go with a customized version of this rose gold sequined Off White Resort 2021 asymmetrical slip style dress which features thin spaghetti straps and the brands name embroidered on the front. I would customize this into a floor length gown with a bit of a train to really make this a glamorous moment for the first time SAG Award nominee to wear for her first ceremony. I would style this custom gown with a short afro, defined eyes, ruby red lips, a pair of rose gold Sophia Webster ‘Rosalind’ three strap crystal heel metallic leather sandals, and simple yet dazzling 18k pink gold set Hueb ‘Luminus’ white diamond cluster earrings to really make it a MAJOR fashion moment for Michaela to bring to life on the “red carpet.” Phoebe Dynevor might have been the Diamond of Bridgerton and I tell you that had awards season happened like normal that she would have been the Diamond this season as well. She rocked an edgy glam Louis Vuitton cocktail dress from the Critics Choice Awards and for the SAG Awards where she is nominated with her cast for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series I would have love to see her bring something feminine and romantic to the red carpet. I have been thinking about Phoebe wearing this blush pink Chanel Spring 2021 Couture a-line tea length gown which features thin straps, defined waist, tiered skirt, and red and white dot embroidery all over. It is gorgeous and I know that Phoebe would bring the statuesque elegance to the red carpet. I would style it with a sleek updo, soft dewy makeup with light pink lips, red leather Christian Louboutin ‘Loubi Queen 100’ ankle strap sandals, and a selection of David Webb jewels including a pair of white diamond and ruby feather drop earrings and a matching ruby and white diamond cocktail ring to really make it scream glamour.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021. You can see all my wishes for this years show here.

2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

“We’re looking at trying to do a unique award ceremony in an hour and leave people saying, which they very rarely do [with an awards show], ‘Man, I wish we had more,'” SAG Awards co-executive producer Todd Milliner told Variety about this years ceremony. That has me very intrigued. After taking a lot of time to find my inspiration to write wishes for this years event I’ve finally found it. While I am disappointed that this years show isn’t going to be live I am still excited to see what fashion the stars will bring to this show. Another of the producers for the show Kathy Connell said “We hope they [the nominees] respect the show enough and everybody does, and their fellow actors, that they don’t want to disappoint the audience at home by letting any surprises go.” So far this is true and it seems like even stylists are holding images of looks to release them when the red carpet would usually take place. For the Golden Globes Carey Mulligan rocked a draped white Prada column gown. I wasn’t thrilled with the fit of the gown and the look was lacking great hair and makeup. She kept a similar beauty look with a white satin suit for the Critics Choice Awards. It seems like white has been her color of choice this awards season so with that in mind for the SAG Awards I would love to see Carey bring something incredibly chic from head to toe to life. I found the perfect look for Carey in this vintage Chanel Couture ensemble which is a white short sleeve lace blouse, a black banded waist, and a white sequin diamond pattern embroidered a-line tea length organza skirt from the brands Spring 2001 Couture collection. I have been loving vintage Chanel in lieu of many of Virginie Viard’s collections and I believe that Carey would look absolutely phenomenal wearing this gorgeous gown. With a soft curly romantic updo, defined eyes, antique rose pink lips, a pair of white Jimmy Choo ‘Romy 85’ crystal trimmed pointed toe pumps, and antique Victorian white pearl and white diamond silver-upon-blacken gold drop earrings from London based vintage jewelry dealer Jewellery Discovery I know that Carey would have a phenomenal glamour moment on her hands. Kerry Washington hasn’t made any appearances this awards season, but with her Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series nomination at the SAG Awards I am praying that she ends up serving us a look. I looked at a lot of dresses and there wasn’t a whole lot that spoke to me. This black Iris Van Herpen Spring 2021 Couture high low strapless gown with a peplum train, mini underskirt, and intricate sequin embroidery was the gown that really spoke to me. I can’t say that Kerry is someone I would normally think of when looking at an Iris Van Herpen collection, but the moment I saw this dress I couldn’t help but shake the idea of Kerry bringing this gown to life. I’ve loved her looks since she’s worked with Law Roach and the two make magic together. It would be a super cool edgy glam moment and I believe that Kerry would absolutely be able to sell this gown to me. I would add a sleek side parted bob, defined eyes, dark red glossy lips, a pair of black Aquazzura ‘Moon Crystal’ crystal embellished ankle strap sandals, and a statement emerald and white diamond de Grisogono collar necklace to really make this a statement edgy glam moment for Kerry from head to toe.Leslie Odom Jr. has been showing up in some super cool fashion moments for award shows so far this season. He rocked hot off the runway Valentino Couture for the Golden Globe awards and Celine look from a collection we haven’t seen a lookbook from for the Critics Choice Awards. I am very excited to see what is last few stops along awards season including this weekends SAG Awards. I’ve always thought that Leslie in classic menswear styles with a twist. That is exactly what I found in the Tom Ford Fall 2021 Menswear collection. I adore this black leopard print tuxedo jacket styled with a silk button down shirt and black tuxedo trousers. It is a cool moment and I definitely believe that Leslie would be able to sell this look with ease. I would keep the styling rather simple finishing the look with a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Greggo Orlato Flat’ glittered velvet and patent leather oxfords. Nicole Kidman dress in her best custom Louis Vuitton for the Golden Globe Awards earlier this year to partake in the ceremony virtually with her family from their living room in Australia. I am very excited to see what she will wear for this weekends SAG Awards where she is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Limited Series. I had several options for what I would like to see Nicole wearing, but it was this black liquid sequin Giambattista Valli Fall 2021 RTW column gown which features a single sleeve, floral embellishment, and a bow detail on the shoulder that really spoke to me. I feel like it this gown is incredibly sleek and glamorous with a hint of sex appeal and Nicole would easily be able to make this look come to life on the red carpet. With this being a pre-recorded virtual event I know this simpler silhouette would be perfect for Nicole. A soft romantic updo, defined eyes, light pink lips, black crystal embellished mesh Rene Caovilla pointed toe slingback pumps, and a selection of jewels from Fred Leighton including a pair of Georgian pendeloque rose cut white diamond drop earrings, a pink spinel and white diamond cocktail ring, and a 1960’s Colombian emerald and white diamond cocktail ring would all tie this look up together in one glamorous package. Viola Davis has been loving bold prints lately. She’s rocked Lavie by CK for the Golden Globes, XulyBet for a recent appearance on Jimmy Fallon, and Duro Olowu for the NAACP Image Awards. Each one was statement making and bold. Never a look I would have expected to see from Viola and who knows if they are looks she would have chosen to wear had this been a regular year. I didn’t go the bold pattern for my SAG Awards wishes I really wanted to see Viola wearing this teal chiffon Elie Saab Fall 2021 RTW a-line flowing gown with a sweetheart crystal halter neckline, ruched bodice, and a crystal waist. I saw this gown and knew immediately it was perfect for Viola. It was the first gown I picked for my SAG Awards wishes. It was actually the thought of not putting this wish into the universe that kept me coming back to look at my wishes and persevering to make sure I got them up. To make this a perfect red carpet moment I would love to see Viola style this gown with a teased afro hairstyle, smokey eyes, deep burgundy glossy lips, a silver crystal embellished Judith Leiber Couture slim faceted rectangle clutch, a pair of strappy silver Casadei ankle strap platform sandals, and selection of Thelma West jewels including simple white diamond drop earrings and a statement white diamond cushion cut cocktail ring.

2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

It has been a whirlwind this year seeing how the different major award shows adapted to still go on amidst the global pandemic. There was the hybrid virtual nominees and in person presenters presented from both coast of the United States, the fully remote Critics Choice Awards, and the scaled back yet in person Grammy Awards. Each award show so far has taken their own path with accommodating the public health orders across the country and the world. The Screen Actors Guild has decided not to do any sort of live event, which is totally different. Instead they will be airing a one hour special that will be pre-recoreded. So these wishes are really just thoughts about what I would like to see as I am sure that portions of the show have already been recorded. As we move closer to this weekends event let’s dive into the wishes I have today for looks I would love to see worn for the SAG Awards. Anya Taylor Joy’s performance as Beth Harmon in The Queen’s Gambit has earned her both a Golden Globe and a Critics Choice Award. She has done so turning back to the same label Christian Dior Couture for both shows. It would not surprise me in the least if she will not be the next face of Dior, maybe the Miss Dior fragrance. It would actually shock me if Anya wore anything other than Dior for the SAG Awards special. I’ve loved this white and black sequined silk tulle Christian Dior Fall 2020 Couture spaghetti strap tea length ballgown since I first saw it. It was presented as a miniature collection on doll sized mannequins, but I would love to see the Dior ateliers take this miniature and create the full version for Anya. It is glamorous and sophisticated with a little bit of sex appeal. The vintage inspired nature of this gown blends together the iconic style sensibilities of both Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. To really make this look perfection I would style it with a sleek rose inspired updo, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of white satin Aquazzura ‘Celeste 105’ strappy crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Bulgari jewels including simple white diamond and emerald drop earrings and a delicate white diamond ‘Wings of Rome’ feather inspired necklace. It would be DRAMA and GLAMOUR defined. Cynthia Erivo has shown up for the Golden Globes, Critics Choice, and Grammy Awards this year and has served a MAJOR look at each. For the Globes she wore a neon green Valentino Couture neoprene tea length gowncustom lace and tulle Vera Wang for the Critics Choice Awards, and then a gorgeous silver and gold sequin and bead embellished custom Louis Vuitton gown for the Grammy’s. Each look she’s served could easily be a Best Dressed of the Year contender and I cannot wait to see what she has in store for us next when she is a presenter at the SAG Awards this weekend. I would love to see Cynthia go for bold dazzle wearing this black and silver Elie Saab Spring 2021 Couture one sleeve sheer ballgown which features a 3D feather inspired feather detail on the neckline and a zebra inspired pattern. I feel like this moment is a major statement moment and Cynthia would definitely be able to sell it to me with ease. Now with this gown I would LOVE to see Cynthia style this gown with her signature bleached buzz cut, thick defined eyes, deep red glossy lips, black Roger Vivier ‘Mini Broche Vivier Buckle’ peep toe platform ankle strap sandals with a chunky clear crystal embellished plexi heel, a Maria Tash ‘Apsara Clicker’ white diamond septum ring, and a selection of MAJOR Djula jewels including a pair of white diamond cluster fan earrings, a single ear with top and side white diamond ear cuffs, and a selection of white diamond rings strewn about all her fingers to really make this another major fashion moment from the powerhouse. Dan Levy has also served up LOOKS this awards season. He’s strayed away from the typical menswear looks wearing canary yellow Valentino Couture wool and sequins for the Globes and victorian military inspired Dior Men for the Critics Choice Awards and each one is a Best Dressed of the Year worthy ensemble. I am expecting him to take home an Actor trophy for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Comedy Series this weekend and I want to see him do so in high style. I turned back to Valentino picking this very classic cut black Valentino Fall 2021 RTW tuxedo that was styled with a see through sequin mesh turtleneck on the runway. Now I don’t know if Dan is exactly the see through mesh on no undershirt kind of guy, and I am leaning towards no. So I’ve been wondering what I would like to see. Part of me want’s to see Valentino create a custom black liquid sequin top to layer under it or just go with a classic white t-shirt. Both would be cool moments and I am leaning towards the white t-shirt. His black thick rimmed glasses, the runways black leather boots, and a statement vintage white diamond Harry Winston flower brooch would make this a MAJOR menswear moment for Dan to bring to this “red carpet.”Lily Collins is presenting at this years SAG Awards after helping announce this years nominees. It will be the first time Lily is partaking in a SAG Awards ceremony and I want to se her doing so in flirtatious glamour. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the bohemian glam custom Saint Laurent gown that Lily wore for the Golden Globe Awards. I know she has so much more in her. I would love to see her deliver this black and blush pink ombre asymmetrical Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 a-line cocktail length gown with an asymmetrical neck and a bow detail on the hip. It screams feminine glamour and that is what I feel like Lily serves up the best on the red carpet. While for most red carpets in and out of lockdown I don’t prefer gowns that don’t reach the floor I feel like the SAG Awards that a cocktail length gown is appropriate, especially for a presenter. I feel like with a sleek romantic updo, defined eyes, bold lips using Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Lipstick Drama Matte in Rose Lancôme, blush pink Alexander McQueen crystal ankle strap sandals, and a pair of Anabela Chan ‘Diamond Supernova’ white diamond, white sapphire, and ivory pearl chandelier earrings would make sure this look is flirty and glamorous from head to toe. Maria Bakalova was one of the new faces among the list of nominees this year and it turns out she is quite the fashionista. She has rocked some major glam moments during awards season so far with a raspberry red crystal embellished tulle Armani Prive ballgown and a black velvet Prada gown with a crystal tassel bow and I cannot wait to see what else lies in store for her over the course of awards season. I feel like custom is in her sights for the SAG Awards. Maybe Gucci or Dior. I wasn’t totally thrilled or inspired with anything that I saw, except for this white Marchesa Spring 2021 RTW orchid purple and grey hand painted floral print ball gown which features a statement crystal embellished halter neckline, open back, a-line skirt, and a sweeping train. I don’t know if Maria would wear Marchesa, but her stylist Jessica Paster would option the brand for other clients so I decided to throw caution to the wind and pick this gorgeous gown for Maria. While Marchesa still has the tainted stain of the Harvey Weinstein scandal on it I think that this moment on Maria would be perfect especially if styled with a sleek side parted updo, defined eyes, soft pink lips, silver crystal embellished Giuseppe Zanotti wrap-around ankle strap sandals, and a pair of sleek and glamorous Graziela Gems ‘Navete’ white diamond wreath hoop earrings.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021. You can see all my wishes for this years show here.

2021 SAG Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

The SAG Awards broadcast is this weekend. I say broadcast because I am sure that the Screen Actors Guild has already started bringing their presenters and nominees together to record their sections as this years show will be pre-recorded and broadcast with a 1 hour television special. I am not sure how they are going to condense the whole show into just one hour, but I am sure there will be a way for them to do it. I’ve been ruminating on my wishes for this event for a while. It actually put me in a bit of a funk. I was originally going to start these as soon as I was done with my Grammy’s wishes, but because of the circumstances I just wasn’t feeling inspired. In fact until this past weekend when I finally finished putting the wishes together I was still uninspired. I will not be detailing out everyone. I have just decided that I don’t have that in me right now, but I have a couple days of detailed wishes that will culminate in a big round up style post for everyone else. I picked the stars featured in my detailed wishes based on who I was able to easily pick a look for and who I know has been turning out looks during our virtual awards season. Kicking things off is Amy Adams whom earned a surprise nomination this awards season for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role in a Movie thanks to her role as Beverly “Bev” Vance in Hillbilly Elegy. I’ve always loved Amy and her style, but in more recent years her looks have missed the mark for me. We haven’t seen her show a fashion look since Emmy night 2019 where she wore a hideous Fendi Couture gown. I want to see her give us GLAMOUR this weekend for the SAG Awards and I know it would be a perfect moment to see her wearing this black Oscar de la Renta Fall 2021 RTW crystal embroidered halter neck column gown which features a draped bodice and keyhole bodice cutout. It is classically glamorous and I think that it would be a great moment for Amy to bring to life for the SAG Awards. I would then take this classic gown and style it with a sleek retro glam updo, thick defined soft smokey eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Tom Form ‘TF 105’ slingback pointed toe pumps, and a selection of Cartier jewels including intricate vintage white diamond chandelier earrings and a statement ‘L’Odyssée de Cartier’ white diamond cuff bracelet to really make this look scream glamour from head to toe. Over the course of this major winning awards season Catherine O’Hara has given more understand glam looks with a custom Vera Wang suit at the Golden Globes and a black Elie Saab ruffled cocktail dress for the Critics Choice Awards. For this weekends SAG Awards I would really love to see Catherine finish out the awards run for Schitt’s Creek giving us a bit of razzle dazzle wearing this black, gold, and white art deco inspired Elie Saab Spring 2018 Couture long sleeve column gown. I am SHOCKED that no one has worn this gown yet. I would have figured Angelina Jolie, Nicole Kidman, Helen Mirren, Catherine Zeta Jones, Nadine Labaki, or Jane Fonda would have fought over this dress. Three years later we are still waiting to see it have a red carpet moment. I feel like it is totally in tune with Catherine’s chic and sophisticated sense of style and it would make sure that she sends Schitt’s Creek off in HIGH glam style. I feel like her soft wave center parted and worn down, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black satin Roger Vivier gold metal crystal buckle platform chunky heel strappy sandals, and simple elegant IVY New York red spinel and white diamond drop earrings would add the perfect finishing touches to this look. Emma Corrin has been serving LEWKS this awards season. She collected her Golden Globe wearing custom clown inspired Miu Miu and then went for bold 80’s inspired style with a Schiaparelli mini dress for the Critics Choice Awards. Her style has been top notch and I am sad her tenure with the cast of The Crown is coming to an end. After her wins this year I would say that her portrayal of Princess Diana has her as the favorite to take home the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Drama Series trophy this year. I went for edgy glam with this silver and black Armani Prive Spring 2021 Couture sleeveless tea length gown with a halter neck vest and a spaghetti strap slip dress for Emma. Now I would ditch the belt from the runway and style this dress with her edgy cropped hairstyle, navy blue glitter Pat McGrath Labs ‘Dark Star’ smokey eyes, soft pink lips, strappy black Awge x Amina Muaddi ‘Isd Gladi’ thigh high crystal embellished sandals, and a selection of Messika jewels including asymmetrical white diamond wing cluster earrings and a white diamond fringe cuff bracelet to make sure this look is in line with Emma’s bold edgy glam style.Helen Mirren is one of the announced presenters for this weekend’s show. I have always loved seeing Helen on a red carpet and I cannot wait to see what look she will turn. She isn’t afraid of giving bold glamour on a red carpet and as I am working planning out the rest of awards season and headed into events like Cannes I cannot wait for Helen to serve more and more looks again. I was saving images from the Fall 2021 RTW collections when I saw this hot pink Tony Ward long sleeve a-line gown which features intricate beading on the bodice and sleeves, a jagged drop waist, and a tulle skirt. I immediately thought of Helen when I saw this gown and when I saw she was presenting at the SAG Awards I immediately thought of this gown. It’s such a bold statement moment and I know that Helen would be able to sell it to me easily especially with a sophisticated side parted hairstyle, defined eyes, soft pink lips, a pair of hot pink Alexandre Vauthier crystal toe cap PVC sling back pointed toe pumps, and a bit more sparkle via white diamond Chopard ‘Precious’ collection white diamond cluster earrings. Finishing out today is Vanessa Kirby who has given some simple yet very chic looks this awards season wearing a simple black Gucci halter gown for the Globes and a red lace Saint Laurent gown for the Critics Choice Awards. I have definitely been paying attention to Vanessa and I am praying that she brings major looks to her final stops on the awards season circuit. She knows how to do major tailoring moments so I knew pretty immediately that I wanted to do this black and white Alexander McQueen Resort 2021 RTW tuxedo inspired ensemble for her to rock for the SAG Awards. I love this look which consists of a classic white button down shirt and a pair of black high waisted slim fit trousers with a major bow peplum detail. It is simple, sophisticated, and classic but in a way that SCREAMS drama. I mean can a look be classic and statement making at the same time? Because I definitely think that this look is exactly that. While Vanessa has a very no muss no fuss sense of style I think that the bow detail is within her wheelhouse. I think a sleek down hairstyle tucked behind the ears, defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of black crystal embellished Christian Louboutin ‘Loubiloo Bling Bang’ twist strap ankle strap sandals, and Bulgari ‘Barroko’ collection white diamond and ruby bunting cluster drop earrings would ensure this look fit’s in perfectly with Vanessa’s red carpet vibe.

The 2021 SAG Awards special will broadcast on Sunday April 4, 2021.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 4

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place THIS SUNDAY! I want to start off this list by thanking all of my readers. I know I stepped back in the last quarter of 2019 and didn’t really give you all the coverage you are used to, but you all have helped turn this January into the most traffic If I Was A Stylist has ever seen in a single month! I am blown away. With the accelerated awards season I just haven’t been able to deliver the same detailed wishes I know you are used to, but it hasn’t stopped you from coming back and checking out the looks I do want to see brought to life on Hollywood red carpets and beyond. For that I am so very thankful! Now on to my 4th set of wishes for the 2020 SAG Awards. Of the ladies, and one gentleman, in today’s wishes you are going to find a lot of chic and sophisticated moments. The red carpet at the SAG Awards is typically a little more laid back, a little more bohemian, than what we see at events like the Golden Globes or the Oscars. That being said I had mentally reserved several of the looks that stars wore on the Globes red carpet earlier this month for the SAG’s and was disappointed that there were some looks I loved on the runway or in the lookbook that I won’t get a chance to feature on here. Well with the spirit of the SAG’s I honestly have found it super easy to shop for just about everyone whom I have featured here. I think that each look seen below really speaks to the person whom I want to see wearing it’s style but also fits the vibe I have come to know from the SAG Awards perfectly.

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 19, 2020.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 3

Today is the middle point in my wishes for the 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards. Today we have nominees who have been singled out for their individual acting accolades, members of the casts nominated for Best Ensemble, some plus ones, and Joey King who is one of the SAG-AFTRA Ambassadors whom we will see on this red carpet on Sunday night. There are several superb moments waiting to happen out of this set of wishes including the Christian Dior Couture look I want to see from Cynthia Erivo, the Givenchy 3D floral embroidered gown for Gwendoline Christie, the fun floral Giambattista Valli Couture gown for Joey King. I also really love the dayglo pink Helmut Lang gown I picked for Maisie Williams. I have been waiting for the perfect red carpet to pick that gown for her since it first walked the New York Fashion Week runway last September. I also scoured every Chanel Couture collection I could find online from 1980 to 2006 to find the perfect moment for Margot Robbie to wear on the SAG red carpet ahead of the next Chanel Couture presentation next week. All of these looks would definitely make for one of the best SAG Awards red carpets in a while. All elevated drama and glamour and I am totally here for it.

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 19, 2020.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 2

The Screen Actors Guild Awards will be the final official stop for many of the nominees featured in today’s wishes including Jennifer Lopez, Jodie Comer, Elisabeth Moss, and Meryl Streep. While it is just another stop on the road to the Oscars for others like Renee Zellweger, Scarlett Johansson, and Laura Dern. When it comes to red carpet fashion I have to be honest that I haven’t been blown away by much recently. The year seems to be a slow burn and when you figure that come the SAG Awards that Awards season is more than half over then I am already worried about not having looks to inspire me to write a Best Dressed of the Year list again. I am hoping that this red carpet will deliver a superb fashion moment (or well hopefully several).

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 19, 2020.

2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 1

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards are coming this weekend! I am so not a huge fan of this accelerated awards season. I want to delve deep into what I want everyone to wear on every red carpet, but I just do not have the time to do that. I am excited to see what the rest of the awards season will bring, but I am also happy that next year things will return to “normal.” So while I don’t have the time to break down each and every look I definitely wanted to bring some superb fashion moments that I want to see brought to life on the SAG Awards red carpet this weekend. Honestly looks worn by Charlize Theron and Rachel Brosnahan (from this set of wishes) to the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month would have been much better suited to the SAG Awards, but the looks I’ve picked for them to bring to life on this red carpet are just as amazing. Honestly favorite from this set of wishes is the pool blue silk faille Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2020 one shoulder bow detail gown I want to see Danai Gurira to wear. Honestly all of these looks bring the “IT” factor to this red carpet. Where these looks could be lost would be in the styling. So ladies, and stylists, please in the immortal words of RuPaul Charles “Don’t Fuck It Up.”

The 2020 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 19, 2020.

2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 8

I know it has been a hot second since my last set of wishes for the SAG Awards, but I have been holding off because I have been waiting for the announcement of presenters. Apparently the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences has been holding top talent hostage to only present at the Oscars, and so this year there aren’t really any stars who aren’t part of nominated shows or nominated themselves that will be presenting. So basically I held off for nothing. This list is short, but it puts the last two girls out there. Lady Gaga was supposed to be in my first set of wishes, but I held her back because I wanted to snatch a look right off the Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week runways for her to wear on the red carpet tomorrow night. I have all kinds of wishes out of the couture shows that I want to see Gaga wearing, but I really wanted to see her wearing this silver Givenchy Spring 2019 Couture cap sleeve gown which features intricate embroidery and beading, and a flared mermaid skirt. The moment I saw this gown I immediately thought of Gaga for the Oscars, but another gown came down another runway after and I fell in love with that for the Oscars and so I thought if anyone could sell this dramatic modern glam moment to me on the red carpet at the SAG Awards it would be Gaga. Though I will say the carpet this year is a silvery grey instead of red, so this gown could easily fade in. I do think however that Gaga has the presence to really make this a major moment no matter the color of the carpet she is walking. A sleek vintage inspired updo, thick defined winged eyes, punchy pink lips, a pair of silver Christian Louboutin ‘Very Lace’ peep toe platform pumps, and bold Hueb ‘Luminous’ diamond cluster earrings would all add the perfect finishing touches to this ensemble.  Laverne Cox was on hand to help announce the 2019 SAG Awards nominees with Crazy Rich Asians star Awkwafina so it came as no surprise when the Screen Actors Guild announced that she was going to be one of this years presenters. She love drama, glamour, and sex appeal so I turned to this chic pink Nedo by Nedret Taciroğlu Spring 2019 Couture strapless bias draped gown which features a dramatic sweetheart neckline, a mermaid silhouette, and an uber sexy thigh high split. I definitely think that this gown screams Laverne’s style and she would definitely be able to sell it to me on the red carpet. A big updo, smokey eyes, antique rose pink lips, a light pink RAFE ‘Stella’ hammer shell tassel detail minaudiere, a pair of light pink satin Stella Luna simple sandals, and Anabela Chan ‘Rose Asscher’ pink and blue sapphire chandelier drop earrings with pear, emerald, princess and round brilliant cut lilac, white and pink diamonds to really make this an absolutely beautiful moment for her to bring to life on the red carpet tomorrow night.

The 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place tomorrow night Sunday January 27, 2019.

2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet Wish List Part 7

Couture fashion week is in full swing now and I am really excited to see what comes down the runways. What will get snatched right off the runways? With all kinds of Pre-Fall looks out there too I have been so incredibly inspired recently. The SAG Awards is one of the more laid back red carpets of awards season. It is almost an everything goes kind of red carpet. I am really excited to see what all of the stars and stylists are busy cooking up right now. Catherine Zeta Jones wore an absolutely beautiful jade green Elie Saab Couture gown on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. She was there as a plus one of her nominated husband Michael Douglas, but was also a presenter. Catherine hasn’t yet been announced as a presenter for this weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, but I would imagine that either way that she will be on the red carpet supporting Michael, who is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. I was looking for the perfect gown for Catherine to wear as a plus one and when I saw this white Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2019 side drape tuxedo gown which a plunging neckline, full sleeves, with a lapel, and a floor length with a small train I knew I’d found the perfect one. It is chic and glamorous and I definitely think that Catherine has the regal stature to really make this gown come to life on the red carpet. A sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, white Tamara Mellon ‘Siren’ PVC detail d’orsay pumps, and Lorraine Schwartz diamond and emerald drop earrings all would allow Catherine to just exude glamour on this red carpet. Irina Shayk was at both the Golden Globe Awards and the National Board of Review Awards to support her nominated baby daddy Bradley Cooper. I was hoping she was going to wow me, but she honestly let me down at both of those events. If she steps out for the SAG Awards with Bradley I want to see Irina make a really chic statement wearing this black fully beaded Dundas Spring 2019 Couture ensemble which features a long sleeve crop top and a high waisted column skirt with a center split. Unlike most designers Peter Dundas showcased his Spring 2019 Couture show while being lauded earlier this month at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala. It was mixed in with looks out of his Pre-Fall 2019 look book. This ensemble in that lookbook was actually a cocktail dress, but I definitely think that the gown is perfection from head to toe. Irina loves sexy and embellishment which is why I think this is the perfect choice for her to deliver on this red carpet. Add a sleek bob hairstyle, defined eyes, red lips, simple black Aquazzura ‘Purist’ sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection diamond, emerald, and sapphire chandelier earrings and I would absolutely be in love with this moment on Irina. Keri Russell gave us an uber sexy and dazzling moment at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month wearing a sequin draped Monique Lhuillier gown. It was the first time in a really long time that I remember Keri not wearing something black. While she stepped out of that comfort zone for that red carpet I have her back in black for the SAG Awards. She doesn’t have an individual nomination so I would expect it. I love this black Alexander Wang Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve tuxedo coat gown. It is a really chic moment that depending on the wearer could go a few different ways. I think that it would go the modern femme fatale route on Keri. She doesn’t do red lips or intricate updo’s, but I think that a sleek hairstyle, smokey eyes, nude lips, a black Alexander Wang ‘Roxy’ fringe detail mini bucket tote, black patent leather and PVC Aquazzura ‘Magic’ strappy pumps, and a pair of Hueb ‘Spectrum’ diamond and emerald ear jackets would all make this the perfect look for Keri to bring to life on the  SAG Awards red carpet. Lucy Boynton gave me an unexpected moment when she stepped out in a liquid gold sequin custom Celine gown on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month. I wouldn’t have expected Heidi Slimane to pick up a rising star to really be part of his first major red carpet. I would love to see her give us dramatic ballerina inspiration with this white Rodarte Spring 2019 RTW tea length tulle gown which features silver and gold polka dots, an a-line skirt, and hand-beaded Swarovski crystal trim along the straps and unique asymmetric V-neckline. I think that she would give this the chic doll like glamour that this gown needs to be a really major red carpet moment. I love her short whispy bob adding simple defined eyes, pink lips, a white and gold Marzook mini capsule crystal and feather embellished clutch, gold crystal embellished Gianvito Rossi ankle strap sandals, and a pair of DeBeers ‘Vulcan’ white and multicolored, cut and rough drop earrings would all ensure this look is chic elegance on this red carpet. I finally saw Beautiful Boy this weekend and honestly I think Timothee Chalamet should be the winner of this years Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role trophy at the SAG Awards this weekend. I thought his portrayal of Nic Sheff, a spiraling teenage drug addict, was moving and emotional. I felt like I was really able to connect with his performance even never having struggled with addiction in the past myself. Timothee is always one I get excited to see on the red carpet and I am really interested in seeing what he will bring this weekend at the SAG Awards. He definitely is the dude on the red carpet that will take the most risks. He has brought bold patterns from Alexander McQueen and sequined harnesses from Louis Vuitton so far this awards season. I wanted to see something really statement making on the red carpet and I was searching the hot off the runway looks from the Paris and Milan’s Fall 2019 Menswear shows, but I didn’t find anything. Instead I’ve opted for something a little more classic with this silver and black sparkly tween notch lapel blazer from the Saint Laurent Spring 2019 Menswear collection which I would want to see her paired with a silver glitter crew neck top and high waisted black pants that came down the runway right after this look. It has a bright sparkly twist on classic menswear dressing and I definitely think that Timothee would be able to sell this more laid back moment to me on this red carpet. I would finish the look with black Saint Laurent ‘Wyatt’ silver western buckle harness detail boots.I literally woke up yesterday morning and the first thing I did was look at the Schiaparelli Spring 2019 Couture collection. It started my day in a really great way and I am super excited to see it on the red carpet. I was hunting for the perfect look for Yara Shahidi, who will be one of this years SAG Ambassadors giving insight into what it’s like to be at the awards via the SAG social media. She rocked the red carpet last year giving major drama via a tuxedo inspired Ralph Lauren jumpsuit with a big bow and dramatic train last year. I was totally not expecting that from her. She is a style chameleon and can literally do just about anything. I went for more of flirty, feminine moment for Yara to bring to life this year with this chic grey Schiaparelli Spring 2019 Couture tea length gown which features a fully sequined overlay, cami style bodice with a v-neck, a yellow bow detail on the bodice (which I could honestly be okay with being removed,) and a full a-line skirt. It is that very feminine moment that I really do believe that Yara would be able to sell to me on the red carpet. I found a pair of grey Sophia Webster ‘Arlo’ crystal buckle sandals that perfectly matches this gown. I would add a chic tight curl afro hairstyle, smokey eyes, glossy nude lips, and a selection of Anita Ko diamonds including a pair of ‘Snowflake’ cluster earrings, a ‘Medium Leaf’ ring, and a ‘Calla Lily Coil’ ring to really make this the perfect moment for Yara to wear on this red carpet.
