Red Carpet at the SAG Awards

Last night I watched the SAG Awards (Screen Actors Guild.) I love watching award shows because I love seeing all the pretty dresses!! I would love to be able to get all dressed up like this! I don't think I've worn a formal gown since our Honeymoon 2 years ago. I have a few sitting in my closet that are saying "wear me, wear me." But I'm afraid they might not fit me right now, but I'm working on it and hope to slip one on before too long. Heck - who says I have to go somewhere fancy to enjoy one of my gowns, maybe I'll just put one on at home one day. ha ha - that would be so funny! I should do that one day before Mike gets home from work and be all dolled up and cooking dinner in a formal gown! He would really think I had lost my marbles then!

Back to the SAG Red Carpet . . . these are some of the dresses I particularly loved:

Lea Michele from Glee wearing Oscar De La Renta. LOVE the color!!

Diane Kruger wearing Jason Wu. I think this dress is so "Old Hollywood" . . . classic!

***Note: Designer Jason Wu was really put on the map after his gown was seen all over the world on The First Lady at the Home States’ Ball. His gown looked so beautiful on her, especially during the President and First Lady's dance to "At Last." After that, everyone wanted to wear Jason Wu designs!

Kyra Sedgwick wearing Vera Wang . . . absolutely stunning!!!

Kate Hudson - WOWZA!! Hey - she has the body to pull off a dress like this, so why not?? I would if I had a bod like that!!! Dress by Emilio Pucci.

Some of you may hate me for this one, but fellow Memphian Justin Timberlake is NOT looking too hot to me these days. I think he looks like a dork and I would not look twice if I passed him on the street - sorry Justin and sorry to all you JT fans out there! He just looks more like a geeky college professor than a rock star to me.
Penelope Cruz - she always looks beautiful!! Pretty dress, just not so sure about the length, wish it was either longer or a bit shorter - love her shoes though!! Gown by L’Wren Scott.

Mariska Hargitay looked pretty in pink on the red carpet! Talk about a beautiful woman!! Still looking to see who her gown was by . . .
Now for a few I didn't like . . . sorry ladies - you are all talented, but just need a little help when it comes the red carpet.

Drew . . what did you do?? Such a cute girl, but she just doesn't get it right a lot. Plus, she looks like she needs some color on her face, get some lipstick, blush - something, quick!
Meryl, Meryl, you need to take that dress and throw it in a barrel!
I just watched a movie last with actress Vera Farmiga - she is a beautiful lady, but this dress just washes her out - YIKES!! She needs a darker color against her pale skin - or a tan.

I suppose I will stop there, the list could go on and on. If I think of anything else I saw that I though was just Oh So Fabulous or a complete disaster -I will add to my list.

I heart Mariska, she is just so beautiful to me, plus I'm a huge SVU fan. And Kate Hudson's dress was amazing, you really have to have confidence to pull that off! Hope you had a wonderful weekend!
