SAG Awards Fashion Face-Off! Love It or Hate It: Lea Michele, Zoe Saldana and More!
Once again, we fight to the finish over who looked fab and who should have stayed off the red carpet at the SAG Awards.
-April Daniels Hussar and PJ Gach
First of all, narrowing down the best dressed of the SAG Awards wasn’t an easy feat. Too many fabulous looking women in too many fabulous gowns. Then there were the (un)lucky few that started a style-feud between us. Normally we agree on who would have looked better if PJ’s dog had styled them, but, just like with the Golden Globes, we came to a style-standoff on a handful of lovelies.
So once again dear Bettys, we present you with our picks of “Oh my gawd, must steal this” and “Are you crazy? I wouldn’t wear that for free even if I could fit into it, which I couldn’t, ever!” It’s up to you to tell us who was your favorite and who just plain looked awful on the red carpet.
Octavia Spencer in Tadashi Shoji
PJ: I just think she looks regal. The Tadashi Shoji gown fits her beautifully, love the Judith Leiber clutch (hey Octavia, can I borrow?), the hair, the makeup…to me she looks regal, sexy and comfy. Every time I see her on the red carpet, she looks better and better.
April: Agree that it’s a great fit, but so BLAND! I swooned over her DGA gown in vivid turquoise. This one is too oatmealy for moi.
Michelle Williams in Valentino
PJ: Thank god she left the headband at home! I love the contrast of the brilliant red of her Valentino gown against the creaminess of her complexion. The dress fits her beautifully and makes her look like a dream. The only thing I’d change would have been her shoes: I’d prefer either a metallic or nude sandal to offset that beautifully crafted dress.
April: B-O-R-I-N-G! Bleh. Meh!
Zoe Saldana in Givenchy Couture
April: Hmm. I saw another photo where she looked better. I bet this is something that looked gorgeous in person. I just love how different it is. Also I think I love it because it reminds me of Downton Abbey.
PJ: Big whoop that she’s wearing Givenchy Couture, Zoe looks older than Betty White in this getup. Tres unflattering. Or as I like to say, “bleccch!”
PJ: Could she hike the slit up any higher? Oh “Hi world, I’ve got ‘easy access.’“ Yeesh, how insecure is Lea anyway? She looks like a shorter, cheaper, sleazier version of Charlize Theron’s dream of a gown from the Golden Globes. One deep breath and her girls are gonna play peek-a-boo.
April: You are so evil! She looks gorgeous! Love the bandage-style top and the ethereal bottom, lvoe her enviable hair, want to steal all her accessories. Why does everyone love to hate Lea?
PJ: She may be a funny lady, but this outfit is funnier (or just sadder) than she is. The color is so wrong for her and she’s wearing some sort of anti-barking device on her throat.
April: Hahahaha. No fair, making me laugh. I love the dress — it’s super flattering on her body — but I cannot tell a lie: I do not love the choker.
April: Gorgeous! Bright, bold and flattering. I want to steal this dress.
PJ: My big question is — will she ever wear something that looks good on her? The dress looks like a stretched-out tank top. And the colors, oh gawd, just looks awful on her. I swear I saw that print as a wallpaper swatch when I was a kid.
Tell us: Who was wrong and who was right in her picks for the night?
PJ Gach is Senior Editor: Style + Beauty at BettyConfidential. She thinks “matchy-matchy” outfits are great only for the two-to-five year old set. April Daniels Hussar is BettyConfidential’s executive editor and would just like to be invited to an occasion worthy of any of these dresses!
