Couture fashion week is in full swing now and I am really excited to see what comes down the runways. What will get snatched right off the runways? With all kinds of Pre-Fall looks out there too I have been so incredibly inspired recently. The SAG Awards is one of the more laid back red carpets of awards season. It is almost an everything goes kind of red carpet. I am really excited to see what all of the stars and stylists are busy cooking up right now. Catherine Zeta Jones wore an absolutely beautiful jade green Elie Saab Couture gown on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards. She was there as a plus one of her nominated husband Michael Douglas, but was also a presenter. Catherine hasn’t yet been announced as a presenter for this weekend’s Screen Actors Guild Awards, but I would imagine that either way that she will be on the red carpet supporting Michael, who is nominated for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Comedy Series. I was looking for the perfect gown for Catherine to wear as a plus one and when I saw this white Christian Siriano Pre-Fall 2019 side drape tuxedo gown which a plunging neckline, full sleeves, with a lapel, and a floor length with a small train I knew I’d found the perfect one. It is chic and glamorous and I definitely think that Catherine has the regal stature to really make this gown come to life on the red carpet. A sleek updo, smokey eyes, soft pink lips, white Tamara Mellon ‘Siren’ PVC detail d’orsay pumps, and Lorraine Schwartz diamond and emerald drop earrings all would allow Catherine to just exude glamour on this red carpet. Irina Shayk was at both the Golden Globe Awards and the National Board of Review Awards to support her nominated baby daddy Bradley Cooper. I was hoping she was going to wow me, but she honestly let me down at both of those events. If she steps out for the SAG Awards with Bradley I want to see Irina make a really chic statement wearing this black fully beaded Dundas Spring 2019 Couture ensemble which features a long sleeve crop top and a high waisted column skirt with a center split. Unlike most designers Peter Dundas showcased his Spring 2019 Couture show while being lauded earlier this month at the Art of Elysium Heaven Gala. It was mixed in with looks out of his Pre-Fall 2019 look book. This ensemble in that lookbook was actually a cocktail dress, but I definitely think that the gown is perfection from head to toe. Irina loves sexy and embellishment which is why I think this is the perfect choice for her to deliver on this red carpet. Add a sleek bob hairstyle, defined eyes, red lips, simple black Aquazzura ‘Purist’ sandals, and statement Chopard Red Carpet Collection diamond, emerald, and sapphire chandelier earrings and I would absolutely be in love with this moment on Irina. Keri Russell gave us an uber sexy and dazzling moment at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month wearing a sequin draped Monique Lhuillier gown. It was the first time in a really long time that I remember Keri not wearing something black. While she stepped out of that comfort zone for that red carpet I have her back in black for the SAG Awards. She doesn’t have an individual nomination so I would expect it. I love this black Alexander Wang Fall 2019 RTW long sleeve tuxedo coat gown. It is a really chic moment that depending on the wearer could go a few different ways. I think that it would go the modern femme fatale route on Keri. She doesn’t do red lips or intricate updo’s, but I think that a sleek hairstyle, smokey eyes, nude lips, a black Alexander Wang ‘Roxy’ fringe detail mini bucket tote, black patent leather and PVC Aquazzura ‘Magic’ strappy pumps, and a pair of Hueb ‘Spectrum’ diamond and emerald ear jackets would all make this the perfect look for Keri to bring to life on the SAG Awards red carpet. Lucy Boynton gave me an unexpected moment when she stepped out in a liquid gold sequin custom Celine gown on the red carpet at the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month. I wouldn’t have expected Heidi Slimane to pick up a rising star to really be part of his first major red carpet. I would love to see her give us dramatic ballerina inspiration with this white Rodarte Spring 2019 RTW tea length tulle gown which features silver and gold polka dots, an a-line skirt, and hand-beaded Swarovski crystal trim along the straps and unique asymmetric V-neckline. I think that she would give this the chic doll like glamour that this gown needs to be a really major red carpet moment. I love her short whispy bob adding simple defined eyes, pink lips, a white and gold Marzook mini capsule crystal and feather embellished clutch, gold crystal embellished Gianvito Rossi ankle strap sandals, and a pair of DeBeers ‘Vulcan’ white and multicolored, cut and rough drop earrings would all ensure this look is chic elegance on this red carpet. I finally saw Beautiful Boy this weekend and honestly I think Timothee Chalamet should be the winner of this years Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role trophy at the SAG Awards this weekend. I thought his portrayal of Nic Sheff, a spiraling teenage drug addict, was moving and emotional. I felt like I was really able to connect with his performance even never having struggled with addiction in the past myself. Timothee is always one I get excited to see on the red carpet and I am really interested in seeing what he will bring this weekend at the SAG Awards. He definitely is the dude on the red carpet that will take the most risks. He has brought bold patterns from Alexander McQueen and sequined harnesses from Louis Vuitton so far this awards season. I wanted to see something really statement making on the red carpet and I was searching the hot off the runway looks from the Paris and Milan’s Fall 2019 Menswear shows, but I didn’t find anything. Instead I’ve opted for something a little more classic with this silver and black sparkly tween notch lapel blazer from the Saint Laurent Spring 2019 Menswear collection which I would want to see her paired with a silver glitter crew neck top and high waisted black pants that came down the runway right after this look. It has a bright sparkly twist on classic menswear dressing and I definitely think that Timothee would be able to sell this more laid back moment to me on this red carpet. I would finish the look with black Saint Laurent ‘Wyatt’ silver western buckle harness detail boots.I literally woke up yesterday morning and the first thing I did was look at the Schiaparelli Spring 2019 Couture collection. It started my day in a really great way and I am super excited to see it on the red carpet. I was hunting for the perfect look for Yara Shahidi, who will be one of this years SAG Ambassadors giving insight into what it’s like to be at the awards via the SAG social media. She rocked the red carpet last year giving major drama via a tuxedo inspired Ralph Lauren jumpsuit with a big bow and dramatic train last year. I was totally not expecting that from her. She is a style chameleon and can literally do just about anything. I went for more of flirty, feminine moment for Yara to bring to life this year with this chic grey Schiaparelli Spring 2019 Couture tea length gown which features a fully sequined overlay, cami style bodice with a v-neck, a yellow bow detail on the bodice (which I could honestly be okay with being removed,) and a full a-line skirt. It is that very feminine moment that I really do believe that Yara would be able to sell to me on the red carpet. I found a pair of grey Sophia Webster ‘Arlo’ crystal buckle sandals that perfectly matches this gown. I would add a chic tight curl afro hairstyle, smokey eyes, glossy nude lips, and a selection of Anita Ko diamonds including a pair of ‘Snowflake’ cluster earrings, a ‘Medium Leaf’ ring, and a ‘Calla Lily Coil’ ring to really make this the perfect moment for Yara to wear on this red carpet.
The 2019 Screen Actors Guild Awards will take place on Sunday January 27, 2019.
