Personally, I feel badly for some of our thespians at times. I mean "entertainer" does not equal "fashion Icon". However, when one subjects themselves to the world of entertainment, there are plenty of "critics" to share their opinions, all of which at the end of the day mean... almost nothing. After all, THEY are the ones attending the award show because of their accomplishments, while we merely observe and critique, with all due respect.
That said, in my humble opinion, it takes more than a good sense of humor and a flare for fashion to be a self proclaimed "expert-fashion-critic". But, if said celebrity can move past the scrutiny and invest a little, some critics, are worth learning from...the ones who have actual experience, the ones who design, or have worked with designers, the ones who understand garments and structure, body types, accessories and yes, personalities.
Thankful for divine intervention, ...I mean, when I was younger, not only was I "matchy matchy", I wore white high heels to class in high school, for crying out loud, yeah baby! (and, thanks mom) Who does that?? Eventually, I was fortunate enough to work in the fashion industry for over 20 years (yikes) with extremely gifted people, whom I've learned a great deal from and, though we all have our hits and misses, the experiences and guidance have been invaluable.
Let's face it, it's the superficial world we live in, and when a celebrity scores high in the opinion of the masses, it can propel them and their career into super stardom, and the masses can continue to live vicariously in their perceived make-believe world...it's their connection to Hollywood and they want you to look good as they, I mean you, do it.
So, here are my thoughts on the SAG awards...
|Emma Stone, perfection in Alexander McQueen Head to Toe. I love this look! I think it's young, but not too young, hip, and feminine. I want those shoes!!!! (well, the dress too)|
|Julie Bowen in Temperley London, Martin Katz jewels, Christian Louboutin shoes. Love the color, love the back, she looks comfortable, confident, hip and even a little mysterious. She's super nice too.|
|Ariel Winter is a good example of a young lady, here in an age appropriate red carpet look, she looks picture perfect in a Collette Dinnigan dress, complete w/ a little bling and lace, Miu Miu shoes, and her hair and make-up look great!|
|Kyra Sedgwick is a sexy siren in Pucci, not too much, not too little, fit is great, makes a statement, stunning. Her hair and accessories are perfect, current, sleek.|
|Ashley Simpson looks amazing in this Jenny Packham dress, it's unique and it fits her personality, I love the detail, cutting edge, classic, pretty. Perfect for a girl who sings and acts.|
|I like the jewelry and I like the hairstyle on Jessica Chastain, but this Calvin Klein gown falls short to me, it's a good color and yet I find it boring, yawn, and I don't care for the top of the dress, seems like it's from the 90's to me.|
|Mayim Bialik in David Peck, suffice it to say, this is not working, for many reasons, too heavy looking, is not flattering, makes her look old. She could go "under cover" with this dress, no one would notice her.|
