2018 SAG Awards, Part 1

Let’s hit the red carpet – it’s awards season, bitches. 

Best DressedDANIELLE BROOKS

O-P-U-L-E-N-C-E! OPULENCE! The colors (so very Katniss at the Opening Ceremonies!), the fit (flawless in every way), the styling (21st-century All That Jazz realness) – I love it all.

Werk, little Nancy Wheeler! Go and get it in your da Vinci-meets-spaceman ball gown.

Honorable Mention: CALEB MCLAUGHLIN
jacket and pants by Antonio Marras, shoes by Jimmy Choo

Only two gentlemen made it into my red carpet recaps (because I require them to wear a non-black color in order to be worth discussing), and they are both Stranger Things kids. I have no regrets about that. I swear, Caleb’s got more natural style in his pinkie finger than most of the starlets in Hollywood combined. The matchy-matchiness of the blue-and-red plaid with the shirt, bow tie, and shoes was brilliant. Then adding a white tuxedo jacket to bring some levity and light and yacht-party-chicness into the mix? Genius.

Needs more jewelry, but damn if this dress wasn’t made for her, from the peachy color to the sequined trim. This is what my people call beshert.

HALLE BERRY
gown by Pamella Roland, jewelry by Yael Sonia

I’m not in love with the styling, but you can’t deny it’s the best thing Halle’s worn in years. Here’s to giving a fuck about the red carpet in 2018, Halle! Not that you need to, but it’d be a nice gesture.

REESE WITHERSPOON
gown by Zac Posen, earrings by Gismondi

I love this color, and though it’s simple enough by most standards, it’s still more interesting than half of what Reese tends to wear to these events. But mostly, I’m amazed at how well she’s able to hide her third leg.

ALLISON JANNEY
gown by Yanina Couture, purse by Tyler Ellis

She’s really been killing it on the awards show circuit this year. Mama wants that Oscar, and she wants it YESTERDAY.

ZOE KAZAN
gown by Miu Miu

The earrings and purse are stunning, but I’m not convinced they actually belong with this (admittedly beautiful) dress. The accessories would be better served by something art deco and sparkling, rather than this modern-classic twee floral.

MARSAI MARTIN
gown by Miri Couture

Well, she is just the most precious little thing.

MARGOT ROBBIE
gown by Miu Miu, jewelry by Tiffany & Co., purse by Jimmy Choo

It’s fine, but she can do so much better.

ODEYA RUSH
gown by Christian Dior, jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz

I am ALL ABOUT that geometric print; I just wish she’d given any fucks whatsoever about the styling. She looks beautiful, but it’s all very basic.

SADIE SINK
dress by Chanel

Chanel! For the new kid on Stranger Things! That cast REALLY knows how to get shit done in this town. Sure, it’s on the fussy side, but that’s more Chanel than it is Sadie. I think it’s darling, different, and age-appropriate, and the jewelry is on point.

WINONA RYDER

Too boring.

HOLLY HUNTER
gown by Paule Ka

The color isn’t my favorite, but this is overall fine. Also, how mad is Holly Hunter that she’s not having Laura Dern’s moment right now? I just picture Holly lighting a candle  late at night and whispering Laura’s name to the gods. Holly Hunter WILL have her vengeance.

GOLDIE HAWN
gown by Monique Lhuillier

Photo: John Shearer/Getty

I can’t really get mad at Goldie for wearing something that could have been on the red carpet 30 years ago.

GINA RODRIGUEZ
gown by Rasario

Photo: Frederick M. Brown/Getty

It’s different, but that’s the only thing I like about it.

SUSAN KELECHI WATSON
gown by Rubin Singer

The color is dated, and the draping is all wrong.

JACKIE CRUZ
gown by Rami Kadi

Okay, I recognize that I, too, would probably want someone to make me look like a cupcake princess at some point during my red carpet career. But at a second-tier awards show, when you’re a grown-ass woman and like the 10th supporting lead on Orange is the New Black, this just feels so embarrassingly over-the-top.

Worst DressedABBIE CORNISH
gown by Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini

Beware: the worst lewks of the two remaining SAG Awards posts will be rife with terrible Wild West saloon cosplay. I don’t understand why bad trends happen to good people, but saddle up, bitches. There’s plenty more where this nonsense came from.
