S.A.G. Awards Stylings

aniston sag awardsAs we’ve said more times than we care to count, what’s an award show without the big “Who Are You Wearing” reveal in the red carpet? This time of year we get the Grammy’s, the Golden Globes and the big daddy Oscar telecast. But with the S.A.G. awards just past (and clocking-in at a respectable mere few hours) we can certainly assume dearly departed Joan Rivers’ territory like on who wore what and the effect of it all.

Birdman nominee Emma Stone slicked her hair down in a side pony and sported shocking ruby red lips, while Best Actress nominee Reese Witherspoon sported her own side pony, though wearing a white gown to Emma’s dark one.  Much is being made about another Best Actress nominee “taking the plunge” as Jennifer Aniston revealed quite a bit of her front in a plunging John Galliano gown. Jared Leto and Mathew McConaughey both sported a great bit of facial hair (and Leto his usual long locks) while the startling transformation of a beardless and quite a few pound-less Zak Galifianakis made the Twitter feed sparkle with a “Who Is that?”

Claire Danes was in a crisscross fronted grown of emerald, Felicity Jones’s in white like Witherspoon (in a Balenciaga gown) and Lupita Nyong’o’s piled high braid made her even more stunning than usual.

There seems to be no end to Hollywood’s self-congratulatory events, but they do bring the best and brightest to our T.V. screens so we can bandy about opinion on fashion and make-up choices. In the end none of this matters to most people’s everyday existences but it is fun to see who is wearing what and read opinions from far and wide.zach gal

And don’t kid yourself, though Emma Stone, Jared Leto and the rest will most likely never hear the opinions of you or me, they are in the business to care about what they look like on and off screen.




Fashion Fetish: Standout outfits at the 2009 Oscars

81st_winsletk_0181st_joliea_013MARQUIS AMERICA recommends the fashion showed at the Oscars ceremony:Viva‘s Zoe Walker picks her best and worst looks from the Academy Awards red carpet

Natalie Portman in Rodarte

I love Natalie Portman, I love Rodarte and I love this dress. It’s great that she chose a bold unexpected colour – but surely she could have attended to those tan lines before she turned up?

Sarah Jessica Parker in Dior Haute Couture

Oh my lord… This is the sort of dress you would expect to see on the likes of Vanessa Hudgens or Miley Cyrus – ie a teenage girl. SJP has a major meringue dress fetish, so I don’t know why I’m surprised by this.


I’m sorry, I hate this, on so many levels. It reminds me of a curtain print. Beyonce seems to wear the same dress, or a variation of that dress, every time she hits a red carpet. Okay Beyonce, we get it: you have curves and you’re not afraid to show them off.

Freida Pinto in John Galliano

It’s a beautiful and interesting dress on a beautiful and interesting girl, but I do wish she had chosen something a bit younger.

Angelina Jolie in Elie Saab

Angelina in black = yawn.

Kate Winslet in Atelier by Yves Saint Laurent

She looks gorgeous, but in my opinion Kate looks great in anything.

Tilda Swinton in Lanvin

She always turns up in something that divides – personally I love her because she doesn’t do the usual ‘strapless with a fishtail’ dress.
