Emma Stone in Alexander McQueen Pre-Fall 2012
Awards season continued tonight with the 18th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, which meant another Sunday evening of red carpet fashion. To my delight, a few actresses donned designs that were fresh off the Spring 2012 haute couture runways: Zoe Saldana stunned in Givenchy while Natalie Portman looked impeccable in Giambattista Valli.
Rose Byrne of Damages also took to the red carpet in couture; she was a pleasant surprise in a sparkling ivory Elie Saab jumpsuit. Rounding out my top five looks of the evening were two style frontrunners this awards season, Emma Stone and Michelle Williams, who rocked the red carpet in Alexander McQueen and Valentino respectively.
Did you watch the SAG Awards? Who were your sartorial favourites?

Awards season is one of my most favourite times of the year, so I’ve been a bit disappointed with the slow start we’ve had this season style-wise. The ensembles at the People’s Choice Awards were completely mundane, and I was left rather uninspired by the Golden Globes the as well.
I wasn’t going to bother with a post about Golden Globes fashion until I read André Leon Talley’s Globes review, which was infused with good and bad fashion and a whole lot of ALT wit. It reminded me that though over 200 gowns sashayed down the red carpet and were largely very blah, there were still a few standouts worth highlighting.
Zoe Saldana’s romantic Louis Vuitton confection was the perfect shade of berry. She seems to be on a roll.
I needed a few days to digest Maggie Gyllenhaal’s RM by Roland Mouret gown. I loved the unexpected colour, the origami pleating and just how beautifully Maggie carried herself in the dress. I wasn’t so much of a fan of the mermaid silhouette, but I got over it.
I also debated January Jones’ look. Black seems like such an unexciting choice of colour when the whole spectrum is at your disposal, but her Lanvin gown has a sense of drama that’s only magnified by its colour. The headband I could do without though.
Grey is not really a colour you choose if you want to shine on the red carpet, but Sofia Vergara’s very unexpected Carolina Herrera just works.
Emily Blunt’s Dolce & Gabbana gown was a safe choice, but gorgeous nonetheless and it was styled with perfection.
Next stop: the SAG Awards this weekend and the Grammys the following week!
