Best Dressed at the SAG Awards 2008

The first actual red carpet event of the year - maybe I'm crazy or maybe I'm just fashion starved, but for what it's worth - I thought they all looked fabulous! Some could have looked better, I'll admit, a little bit more effort never goes astray, lol. But for the most-part, the SAG awards really brought out some gorgeous numbers. As per usual, mermaid trains dominated the arrivals area, but it was good to see a somewhat variety of colours...
The Blues...
These lovely ladies chose, what I personally think is, the most flattering colour there is. Amanda looks grown-up and positively regal in this jewel-encrusted gown. Jamie-Lynn stuck to block colours (she's a woman of curves - she knows what suits her and what doesn't. Gotta love that) and the result: a winner. Oh Marcia, Marcia, Marcia. The way the dress gathers at the décolletage, the stacked shimmery bangles and the clash of red hair with a blue gown - all the ingredients for a red carpet stunner.

The Whites...
Hands down best dressed. Marion Cotillard knows how to make me jealous in her to-die-for Nina Ricci gown. All I can really say is perfect. Perfect hair. Perfect accessories. Perfect length. A little too perfect, you ask? Not this time. Lol.

Backless is hard to pull off - but Eva gives Hilary Swank a run for her money. As much as I do love this dress, I think it looks better from the back than the front. She looks very chic, sporting an old Hollywood up-do and blindingly bright earrings.

I've been hearing lots of criticism about Teri Hatcher's Badgley Mischka (of course, lol) gown. But the way I see it - what's not to like? Badgley and Mischka are both wonderful designers and here's a perfect demonstration of that fact.

...and the Downright Gorgeous.
Ana Ortiz isn't quite a household name yet, but if her fashion sense is anything to go by, I think we'll be hearing her name a lot more from now on. Love the simplicity of the black, then a splash of silver with the pendant. Same with Sara Ramirez - I love her because she's really making a difference as far as not-conforming-to-skinny-Hollywood-ideals goes. And fashionably, too...Oh Debra Messing just looks perpetually beautiful. As well as her impeccable hair and gorgeous make-up, I actually preferred the top-half of her Oscar De La Renta gown - so to highlight all this I chose not to include a full-length shot. red-carpet down, hopefully many more to go. Oscar's, here we come!

Let's just hope nothing gets in the way of the Oscars (aka - the mother of all red carpet fashion exhibitions) lol.
Just out of curiosity - what did you think of Angelina's dress?
I wasn't loving it, I have to say...
