SAG Awards Red Carpet 2011

My favorite looks (click to enlarge)

So the Screen Actors Guild Awards were two nights ago and I had a much more difficult time narrowing down a list of favorite looks than I did with the Golden Globes. I feel like the attendees really upped their wardrobe game on this one. As you can see in my collage above, this made my selection of noteworthy looks rather large. Since I don't want to overrun our page, the individual reviews and info on who's-wearing-what are below the jump.

 Natalie Portman in Azzaro
Love her. Can't get enough of her. Is this look blowing my mind? No, but I love that Portman went with a very simple, clean look that completely accentuates her second trimester baby bump. All of the accessories are stunning ($2 million worth of Tiffany's will do that for you I guess), but not overwhelming in any way. She clearly put the focus of this outfit on the bun in the oven.

Lea Michele in Oscar de la Renta
Super sexy with a little bit of a 70's vibe going on in the dress. She nailed this look. And for once I actually enjoy seeing someone with their hair down in a red carpet gown.

Hilary Swank in Versace
Swank owned this gown. Seriously, I can't imagine anyone wearing it better. It fits her like a glove, showing off both her womanly curves and her fantastically toned arms. Even the color works well for her. My only complaint is the hair. The way it's hanging up top is reminiscent of a well-styled mop. She should have dyed it a richer shade of chocolate brown and pulled it back at least part of the way.

Jayma Mays in Jenny Packham
Mays chose a perfect style of dress for the SAG Awards; it's clearly elegant, yet it's got a casual vibe in the draping and ruched waist. Great hairstyle choice as well. Personally, I think that the look would have been off the charts if this gown were a rich navy, but nude isn't bad and she's actually found a pink enough tone that it compliments her fair skin as opposed to washing her out.

Rosario Dawson in J. Mendel
Yahoo! is right (for once) in saying that my celebrity doppelganger does appear to be just a tad bit underdressed for the occasion, but it's hard to assert that she doesn't look good. This pale hue could easily have come off as Easter-like, but paired with the sexy, floaty feel of the dress' shape, it's more "resort" than "Easter parade".

Tina Fey in Oscar de la Renta
"Ain't no party like a Liz Lemon party cause a Liz Lemon party is MANDATORY!!!!" I love me some Tina Fey (30 Rock anyone?), and so it's great to see her in an award show look that's actually good looking. No offense to Fey, but she's almost consistently on the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to red-carpet-wear, which is maybe what makes this great look such a stunner. Hopefully we'll keep seeing styling choices like this from the first lady of comedy.

Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen
First off, kudos to Kunis for breaking out the big guns; only the highest tier of American celebrities wear McQueen to award shows these days (Lady Gaga, MObama, etc.). She really does look fantastic in this flowy, printed gown. The dress combined with her casual hair and happy demeanor really come together for a very fresh, youthful look.

Julianna Margulies in YSL
This looks is so elegant. Yes, it's modest, but I admire when a celebrity can cover themself up and still come across as beautiful and stately. Very Grecian.

Dianna Agron in Chanel
For some reason Yahoo! found this look to be matronly. I completely disagree. Sure, the hemline hits at a spot that isn't long or short, but if they happen to be aware of anything that's going on in the world of fashion trends, they would know better than to call this matronly. Agron is smokin' hot in this strapless number. From her shiny golden hair to her perfect black heels, she looks great.

Kyra Sedwick in vintage Thierry Mugler
Can you say hot? Sedwick (who is 45, by the way) is stunning in this slinky black gown. She looks super fit and powerful; the ultimate femme fatale.

January Jones in Carolina Herrera
Super pretty look on a super pretty girl. I love the lace effect that the gold has as well as how well it accentuates the natural curves of her body. Hair and makeup are spot on as well.
Hailee Steinfeld in Prada
Perfect look for a young teen. Steinfeld rocks these horizontal stripes perfectly with natural hair and makeup and fun hot pink nails. So far she's been a red carpet stunner with not a single look that is too old or young for her age, and seeing her in a dress from Prada's great Spring collection gives her double the brownie points from me.
