Last night's 21st annual Screen Actors Guild (S.A.G.) awards marked the red carpet midpoint for Hollywood's road to the Academy Awards in February. Compared to last year's S.A.G. awards, it was a bit of an improvement in terms of the "wow" factor for red carpet fashion. The gentlemen definitely didn't disappoint on the red carpet more so than the ladies this year at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Once again, I've added my pick for "Hottest On-stage Couple of the Night" for my new sub-category this award season. So with no further ado, I present my top 3 fashion favorites for the 2015 S.A.G. Awards:
LADIES - Top 3
1. Lupita Nyong'o
Lupita Nyong'o took the top prize of the evening and looked absolutely radiant in her multi-colored Elie Saab gown. Her whole look from head to toe was strikingly modern yet vintage with long-sleeves, plunging neckline, and full pleated skirt. I loved the mix of floral print with vertical black stripes on her gown which made the most dramatic entrance on the red carpet.
In addition, to her perfect makeup and gorgeous braided hair, she wore quite the amazing collection of Fred Leighton jewels which included: black jade earrings, 2.5 carat cushion-cut diamond and onyx ring, Art Deco diamond and emerald ring, ancient garnet cameo and diamond ring.
2. Rosamund Pike
"Gone Girl" actress Rosamund Pike looked beautiful in her black hi-low haute couture A-line gown by Christian Dior. I loved the black floral embellishments and gorgeous detailed train of the dress and, most of all, I loved Rosamund's bright red lips which were the perfect touch to such a stunningly bold look!
3. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston looked drop-dead sexy in her vintage, plunging gold gown by Galliano. In addition to her amazing cleavage-baring gown, she wore an Amrit long-link necklace that dangled dangerously between her cleavage down to her navel!
GENTLEMEN - Top 3
1. Kit Harington
Kit Harington looked tremendously hot in his Burberry suit and brooding glance!
2. Lenny Kravitz
Lenny Kravitz looks amazingly cool in just about anything including this all-black tuxedo and undershirt by Saint Laurent complete with a pair of shades.
3. Ethan Hawke
Ethan Hawke kept it interesting and wore a dark green Calvin Klein suit with peak lapels. I love when the gents' wear some other color besides the traditional black suit!
Hottest "On-Stage" Couple of the Night
After looking completely stunning in her red carpet look, Lupita took the stage with Jared Leto to present the award for Outstanding Male Actor in a TV Movie or Miniseries. Together they were a sight for sore eyes and looked absolutely, adorably hot together even if they are not together! Their onstage chemistry together was through the roof! Lupita wore again her thick, black-framed glasses and Jared still embraced his long-flowy ombré hair. Jared definitely couldn't help stare at the beautiful Lupita.
…and that embrace!
And there you have it…my red carpet fashion favorites for this year's S.A.G. Awards! In a few weeks, I am very much looking forward to the much-hailed red carpet fashion of the Academy Awards. I hope to see some amazingly diverse fashion (unlike the Oscar nominations this year)! In addition, I can't wait to see who will be crowned Best Dressed Duck and Drake for the 3rd Annual Golden Doily Duck Award exclusively for the Academy Awards.
