Are you ready to jump down the rabbit hole of all my wishes for the red carpet at the 2018 Screen Actors Guild Awards? The first set of nominees I have wishes for are for the ladies whose strong performances have been nominated for Best Lead Actress in a Movie. This is the first awards show where the field of nominees is narrowed, not breaking acting into drama and musical/comedy categories. In the last eight years seven of the winners of the SAG Award in this category have gone on to take home the Best Actress trophy at the Oscars. So we will be watching the winner of this award very closely. Frances McDormand took home the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture Drama at the Golden Globes this past Sunday and now is being seen as a two horse race for the SAG, and the Oscar, in this category. Frances has never been one that has made fashion waves on the red carpet, but I wonder if she will be a non starter until the Oscars and then show up for the Academy Awards wearing couture like Sally Hawkins did in 2014 and Charlotte Rampling did in 2016. For the Globes Frances wore a very simple black long sleeve gown. I am pushing the boundaries of her style picking something that is extremely glamorous for Frances to rock on the SAG Awards red carpet. I think that heading over to Armani Prive would definitely put Frances on the highlight reels of the red carpet especially if she wore the pale dusty rose and black Armani Prive Fall 2016 Couture gown which features a beaded long sleeve bodice, bow detail on the hip, and a black velvet column skirt. I think that the shape of this gown is perfect for Frances’s taste, but the embellishments would help elevate her standard style. Add a pair of black satin No. 21 ankle strap bow pumps, a sleek hairstyle, defined eyes, nude lips, and Harry Winston diamond wreath earrings to really ensure that this look is perfectly chic from head to toe. I don’t understand why Margot Robbie is one who I find to be very up and down. She is GORGEOUS and has amazing potential. I was expecting her to be one of my favorites on the Golden Globe Awards red carpet, but her custom Gucci gown was dated and matronly. I was expecting sleek, sexy, and glamorous. So for the SAG Awards I decided that I was going to pick an absolutely beautiful, glamorous moment for Margot to bring to life on this red carpet. I think that Margot would take this white Ulyana Sergeenko Fall 2017 Couture strapless silk gown and deliver the major femme fatale moment that I know she can own on the red carpet. The gown is uber simple, but I think that a simple gown with killer styling can be just as impactful as a gown with intricate beading and embroidery. I think that a 40’s inspired faux bob, thick defined eyes, bold red lips, a pair of nude Giuseppe Zanotti for Jennifer Lopez ‘Coline’ suede and crystal embellished strappy sandals, and a statement Cartier diamond necklace all would ensure that Margot really delivers that classic glamour moment on the red carpet. Sally Hawkins so far has worn Dior for every red carpet this awards season. In Cruise 2018 for the Palm Springs Film Festival and custom couture for the Golden Globe Awards. She has always been one whose style has always eluded me. I have never gotten much of a consistent vibe when it comes to brand or style. Will she be a Dior darling all awards season long? I am starting to wonder. In contrast to Dior Couture this blush pink lace Tadashi Shoji Resort 2018 column gown which features flutter cap sleeves and a high low hem seems like a major step down. When I was looking for the perfect gowns for Sally to wear this awards season I did think of this gown. I think that this look spoke to me because the model has similar hair to Sally and is doing a pose that we could expect to see Sally wearing on the red carpet. I do think that for the more laid back vibe on the red carpet at the SAG Awards would definitely speak to this gown being a perfect option for Sally to wear. All in I think that this look would be perfect with loose curls, a smokey eye, matte rose pink lips, light gold Christian Dior pointed toe pumps, and a pair of pink sapphire and rubellite Bulgari cluster drop earrings.Since kicking off awards season just over a week ago Saoirse Ronan has been nothing but best dressed at every event she has stepped out on. Gucci, Calvin Klein, Coach, Cushnie et Ochs, and Atelier Versace have all given different looks on the varied red carpet that Saoirse has walked so far this year. I will say that overall it has seen like Saoirse has given some major 80’s style vibes on the red carpet. On Sunday Saoirse took home the Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Movie – Musical/Comedy for her performance in Lady Bird, and I feel like that she is my favorite to take home the SAG Award for Best Actress too. I went for a really beautiful, ethereal and dramatic raspberry red Giambattista Valli Fall 2017 Couture draped gown which features tied off the shoulder detail, sweetheart neckline, peplum waist, and dramatic train for a really beautiful moment for her to rock on this red carpet. Often from the film nominees we don’t see stars wearing dramatic trains on this red carpet. This gown on the runway does have a dramatic train, which I think would make for a statement moment for the SAG Awards red carpet, but I am sure that for the power of a likely winner that if she wanted the brand to lop it off that they would. I think that with a romantic updo, defined eyes, nude lips, a pair of blush and gold Salvatore Ferragamo flower heel sandals, and a real statement making Chopard Red Carpet Collection rubellite tourmaline and diamond necklace that this would be another really major moment for Saoirse to rock on this red carpet.
The 2018 SAG Awards will be held on Sunday January 21, 2018.
