The funny ladies of television are definitely ones that I am really interested in seeing on this red carpet. So many of them have great style and I feel like we will definitely see some really amazing moments from them on the red carpet at this event.Alison Brie really has started to play the role of the a real red carpet heavy hitter from the white knit Brandon Maxwell gown she wore for the Washington D.C. premiere of The Post to the ballgown x pants Vassilis Zoulias ensemble she wore for the Golden Globe Awards all have really punctuated that idea. For the red carpet at the 2018 SAG Awards I went for bold color and feminine glamour with this tangerine Oscar de la Renta silk moire evening gown which features white contrast leaf appliques, a v-neckline, open back, spaghetti straps, a full a-line skirt, and a dramatic train. I have to say that when it has come to gowns and dresses for Alison to wear for several events on the red carpet over awards season. I was so in love with the idea of her wearing this gown, despite it wasn’t presented on a runway and that it is for sale online, that I swapped all the rest of those Oscar dresses so that this would be a real statement. I think that the dress alone is statement enough so I would pick a pair of creamsicle orange SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker ‘Willow’ suede swirled sandals and a pair of orange angel skin coral and diamond Assael earrings to add the perfect accessories to this look. A smokey eye, light pink lip, and a romantic updo all would ensure that that this look is perfection head to toe. I was really hoping that Jane Fonda would get a nomination during awards season because I already had a gown in mind for her. So when her name was read as a nomination in this category at the SAG Awards, for her performance in Grace & Frankie, I got really excited. One day while I was writing posts I decided to put runway shows on my smart TV and just let YouTube auto-play some shows I was able to work through others made me stop and watch (it was actually very distracting lol.) It was how I found designer Sebastian Gunawan. The show was 20 minuites long and it seemed like glamour from start to finish. When I saw this long sleeve gown which features strong shoulders and a tiered fringed column skirt from the designers Spring 2018 Couture collection Jane was immediately the first person to come to mind. Sometimes I love finding these designers who show outside of the standard New York, London, Milan, or Paris circuits because they can really show some major designs (keep an eye out for more wishes from the brand especially as we approach Cannes.) I think that this gown definitely fits Jane’s general sexy glam aesthetic (which doesn’t seem to be slowing down even at 80, you go girl) and the more laid back approach to glamour that we usually equate with the SAG Awards red carpet. Add a pair of black Jimmy Choo ‘Lancer’ strappy suede pumps, Chopard Red Carpet Collection yellow diamond chandelier earrings, a sleek updo, bold defined eyes, and a nude lip to ensure that Jane really shuts this red carpet down. Would it actually be awards season if Julia Louis Dreyfus wasn’t nominated for her performance in VEEP? The 2018 Golden Globe Awards nominations in this same category was pretty much an ode to new comedic talent and new series and left out almost all of the ladies nominated at the SAG Awards. Julia has been nominated in the category for VEEP now five times and has won the Actor trophy twice. When it comes to the red carpet you can usually count on Julia showing up wearing a black gown, but she also knows how to do color really well. I decided to go for the bold and pick this red vintage James Galanos gown from 1978 which features beautiful draping and a pearl beaded waist. I think that the rather simplistic shape of this gown is right in Julia’s comfort zone so the bright red chiffon and the pearl beading could be seen as a little more attainable as a wish. I think that with old Hollywood waves, a smokey eye, nude lips, a black Roger Vivier ‘Jaipur’ pearly fringe minaudiere, black Roger Vivier ‘Sin Logo’ suede sandals, and a pair of David C.A. Lin translucent white jadeite teardrop earrings that Julia would most certainly have one of her best red carpet moments EVER.Lily Tomlin doesn’t really play to the fashion game on the red carpet. She can usually be seen wearing black suits with wither a straight, wide, or palazzo leg. Picking a bold gown for Lily to wear for this red carpet seemed counter productive, but while I was looking for things for other stars to wear I saw this white Elizabeth Kennedy Spring 2018 RTW suit which is made up of a blazer that features a mirrored effect horse embroidery throughout and a fluid wide leg pant and thought that it would be a really amazing moment for Lily to rock on this red carpet. I would imagine that Lily would not walk the red carpet without a shirt and I think a basic white silk shell blouse would be a really chic addition to this look. Add simple curls, a thick lined eye, pink lips, a black Judith Leiber Couture ‘Madison’ satin bow clutch, a pair of Manolo Blahnik ‘Lisy’ crepe d’Orsay pointed toe pumps, and a pop of color via Armenta ‘New World’ rectangle turquoise & quartz doublet drop earrings with diamonds to really make this a beautiful moment for Lily.Last but not least for today is Orange is the New Black star Uzo Aduba. Uzo has won the Actor trophy in this category twice and this is her fourth nomination. I have long been a fan of Uzo’s style and I think that she will deliver something amazing on this red carpet. I looked back at her past red carpet moments and realized that Uzo has yet to have a couture moment on the red carpet, so I thought that the SAG Awards would be a perfect place for her to do so. I think that the reason that Uzo hasn’t had that couture moment is because she isn’t a sample size. But the mood in the fashion industry about dressing women of different shapes and sizes is definitely turning towards one that is much more accepting. I think that if Uzo stepped onto the SAG Awards red carpet wearing this strapless Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture tea-length cocktail dress which features multiple contrasting patterns that we would have a real moment on our hands. I think that Uzo could really take a dress like this and give us some major glam attitude and make it that moment I know I could be on her especially when paired with full bouncy curls, thick lined eyes, a red lip, black and gold Jimmy Choo ‘Milla’ moire silk flap clutch, a pair of black glitter Jimmy Choo ‘Romy’ pointed toe pumps, and 18k gold Marina B quartz, diamond, and black jade earrings.
The 2018 SAG Awards will be held on Sunday January 21, 2018.
