The 2014 Red Carpet Report: Golden Globes and SAG Awards

Over just the past month, two major red carpets attracted celebrities and personalities world wide. The Golden Globes and SAG Awards just passed and The Grammy’s is just 2 days away! Dawning the latest from the runway, the red carpet was full of hautes and nots. See who set the the trends and who fell below the mark!

The 2014 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS

HAUTE

lupita-nyong-o

Lupita Nyong’o in Ralph Lauren

Lupita has become the “it girl” overnight because of her effortless and chic style. This red cape detailed gown is sure to be a popular trend for 2014. The color is radiant on Lupita’s skin and the silhouette is regal and exquisite.

Zoey Deechanel in Oscar de la Renta

Zoey channeled Chanel and the late 1920’s as inspiration for this darling look. The cream pearl adorned shoes compliment this head to toe ladylike putfit. The best part of Zoey’s look is how unexpected this is on the red carpet!

Allison-Williams-Alexander-McQueen

Allison Williams in Alexander McQueen

Allison is know for her frilly frocks, however she went for a more dramatic look in this black and white striped gown. The minimalist appeal mixed with classic colors and cuts create one noble gown.

kaley-cuoco-golden-globes

Kaley Cuoco Sweeting in Rani Zakhem

Kaley looked whimsical yet artistic in this show stopping gown. Digital floral print has become and understated trend, however the execution is hard to perfect. This dress has enough volume mixed with a muted pastel color pallet, making it a work of art.

 margot-robbie_Gucci

Margot Robbie in Gucci

Margot looked stunning in this white Gucci gown trimmed in grey and black crystals. The forest green shoe adds an unexpected yet royal twist. The deep plunge is sexy but not to risky. Simple yet glamorous diamond studs complete this effortless look.

The 2014 GOLDEN GLOBE AWARDS

NOT

Lena-Dunham-in-Zac-Posen

Lena Dunham in Zac Posen

Lena has always struggled in the fashion department and this disappointment comes because of the fit of this dress. The color is a great option for her skin tone, however the bust is too tight. Even a small bust line can look unflattering when smashed into a smaller size. This then creates side boobage, which is never good. A good steaming of the mermaid skirt wouldn’t have hurt either!

tina-fey-golden-globes

Tina Fey in Carolina Herrera

We understand that Tina Fey is known for her comedic demeanor, however this dress falls short of a funny take on fashion. The floral print trend looks like a children’s pillow from far away and the size of the roses are distracting.  A little less dress and a smaller print could turn this dress into a winner.

Zoe-Saldana-Prabal-Gurung-2014-Golden-Globe-Awards

Zoe Saldana in Prabal Gurung

Zoe usually knocks it out the park and trust me, I wanted to love this dress. There are way too many elements to this dress, creating an overwhelming effect. If we cut off the straps and lost the pink purse, we may be heading in the right direction.

jemima-kirke-golden-globes

 Jemima Kirke

Jemima Kirke is low maitenance and we respect that, but that is no excuse no to try. Overall this dress screams “I don’t care” and there is way to say that while looking red carpet worthy. The entire look is outdated and overly grungy.

Drew-Barrymore-Golden-Globes

Drew Barrymore in Monique Lhuillier

Drew Barrymore is pregnant and glowing, but this dress was not the right choice. The overuse of floral applique takes away from the angelic essence of this dress. Not to mention it is completely shapeless and Drew is fit enough to flaunt her bump!

The 2014 SAG Awards

HAUTE

jane-krakowski-roland-mouret-gown-at-sag-awards

Jane Krakowski in Roland Mouret

Jane let the color and cut of this dress stand out on its own. This green is a mix between Paris and shamrock, creating an eye catching hue. The one shoulder detail and crisp structure make this simple dress so much more.

Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci

Lupita-Nyongo-in-Gucci-2014-SAG-Awards

Lupita Nyong’o in Gucci

Lupita is sure to make every best dressed list. The color alone is enough to land her at the top while the 3-D floral design puts her above the rest.

2014-SAG-jennifer-lawrence-Christian-Dio

Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

Jennifer Lawrence normally wears Christian Dior and this dress was just as lovely as the rest. The multi color sequins design could have looked to “New Years Eve” however the precise design and color combination are just perfect.

gretchen-mol-in-j-mendel

Gretchen Mol in J. Mendel

Gretchen keep it simple and chic in this white net detailed gown. This is the perfect mixture of casual and elegant, using ruching and a high split as the stand out details.

Holly-Hunter-SAG-Awards-2014

Holly Hunter

I’ve loved Holly’s style ever since her appearance in Thirteen. This dress boasts a subtle key hole cut out and draping. This timeless piece is ideal for a red carpet.

The 2014 SAG Awards

NOT

kelly-osbourne-sag-awards

Kelly Osbourne in Zac Posen

People may disagree with this assessment of Kelly’s gown, but the train looks unfinished. Kelly’s figure is to die for and the eggplant color is on trend. Aside from this the dress falls flat.

mayim-bialik-sag-awards

Mayim Bialik in Liv Design

This one of a kind dress went totally wrong with the fabric choice. The satin looks cheap and the lace isn’t hugging her silhouette. If you want to make lace look sexy, it has to be the right shape!

julia-roberts-at-2014-sag-awards

Julia Roberts in Valentino

Julia is on this list because she should never give herself the opportunity to land on it! Julia always looks red carpet worthy but the color of this gown screams “pepto bismol” and its just plain boring.

Juliette-Lewis-wore-floral-print-Vivienne-Westwood-gown

Juliette Lewis in Vivienne Westwood

All that can be said about Juliette’s dress is that is perfectly resembles a night gown. The draping effect is the only thing that looks like it would be on actual clothing. Color and print, this could pass sleepwear. The mustard clutch just makes this ensemble more confusing.

cate-blanchett-in-givenchy-sag-awards-2014

Cate Blanchett in Givenchy

Slim and pregnant or not, this sequin bordered layer looks like fabric thrown on top of an already loose fitting dress. The entire dress looks like a long ice skating outfit and the halter neckline is outdated. Once again, Cate can show off her baby bump in a more stylish way!
