The Doily Duck's Top 3 Fashion Favorites: 2014 S.A.G. Awards

Just one week after the 2014 Golden Globes, the red carpet is back in the spotlight with the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Guild Awards. And quite honestly, compared to last year's SAG Awards, I was very disappointed with the majority of the red carpet fashion.  But alas, I did find my favorite gems amongst the pebbles!

Here are my favorite fashion picks of the 2014 SAG Awards:

LADIES - Top 3

1. Lupita Nyong'o
And here she is again looking absolutely gorgeous! Lupita Nyong'o was my knight in shining armor of the evening! She wore a bright turquoise silk crepe Gucci column gown with a stunning floral embellished neckline. The turquoise color was just amazing and fresh! I loved her subtle hint of blue eyeshadow too!

2. Dame Helen Mirren
In love with Dame Helen Mirren and her Escada dress! At age 68, Helen showed up women half her age and looked totally hot in her long-sleeved gold embellished black dress. Her whole look was beautiful especially the unique beading and embroidery of the dress and her Neil Lane statement earrings.

3. Michelle Dockery
'Downton Abbey' actress Michelle Dockery has yet to disappoint me at the SAG Awards! Michelle wore a bold and striking black & white tuxedo-inspired dress by J. Mendel. She looked amazing with the plunging neckline and the slit up the front of the dress. Plus I loved her matching Gianvito Rossi heels!


1. Kit Harington
Actor Kit Harington looks good in just about anything! Oh, and he is wearing a Z Zegna black suit.

2. Jared Leto
I thought Jared Leto looked pretty damn good in his Dior tuxedo. I didn't mind his long 'Tristan-esque' hair and beard and I loved his black polka dot pocket square and Harry Winston watch. But his best accessory of the night was his gorgeous silver maned mother, Constance.

3. Benedict Cumberbatch
And yes, the well-dressed Benedict Cumberbatch. He knows how to wear a classic suit to a tee! 

I hope you enjoyed my red carpet fashion favorites for this year's SAG Awards! And I am so looking forward to the mother-of-all-red carpet fashion - the Academy Awards. Moreover, I can't wait to see who will win the 2nd Annual Golden Doily Duck Award for Best Dressed Duck and Drake exclusively for the Academy Awards!

The Doily Duck's Top 3 Fashion Favorites: 2014 Golden Globes

It's that time of the year again when celebrities walk their way down the Red Carpet wearing their finest in fashion. For the first big awards show of the year, I was definitely more impressed by the ladies of this year's Golden Globes red carpet than I was of last year's Golden Globes.  Moreover, I had a very hard time trying to decide my #3 fashion favorite for the ladies that I decided to make it a tie.

So, let me waste no more time, here are my fashion favorites of the night for both ladies and gentlemen for the 2014 Golden Globes.

LADIES - Top 3

1. Lupita Nyong'o
 Lupita Nyong'o, nominated for her superb role in '12 Years a Slave', was my absolute favorite of the night. She looked ravishingly stunning in her Ralph Lauren red column off-shoulder gown with a 1960s-inspired cape. Dramatic yet simple, she epitomized such true elegance and beauty.

2. Drew Barrymore
Pregnant and just absolutely radiant, Drew Barrymore shone in her soft, flowing gown with delicate pink, red, and orange floral appliques by Monica Lhullier. I also loved her hint of red lip color and red high heels!

 3. Emma Watson
Emma Watson's Golden Globe outfit was absolutely daring! She wore a striking red Dior Couture chiffon backless gown over black cropped skinny pants. Yes, pants! Emma rocked this look and I thought it felt so avant-garde. In addition, she perfected her look with pink lipstick and purple Roger Vivier heels.

3. Julianna Margulies
Julianna Marguiles stunned in a gown by Andrew Gn Resort 2014. The black and gold brocade gown with coral detailing was "va va gorgeous" complete with a sexy plunging neckline and black and gold chandelier earrings.


1.  Chris Pine
Chris Pine in a black Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo - he wore it well!

 2. Usher
Usher looked smashing in oxblood wool, two-button tuxedo with black dress shirt and black bow tie from the 2013 Fall Calvin Klein Collection.

3. Bryan Cranston
'Breaking Bad' star Bryan Cranston looked great in his Burberry tuxedo! His best accessory wasn't the two Golden Globes he won that night, but his on-trend tie bar! I love tie clips!

I hope you enjoyed my favorite fashion picks for this year's Golden Globes. I am looking forward to next weekend's Screen Actor's Guild Awards and of course the 86th Annual Academy Awards in early March.
