Nothing makes us sadder come Style Superstar time than an awards season repeat offender: a fashionista failure who just can't seem to get it right no matter how many gowns she tries on or red carpets she walks. But on the other hand, nothing makes us happier than taking a previous worst-dressed pick and handing her all of the awards for a total style turnaround! And this week, we're so psyched to bestow the best-dressed and most-improved honors on Jessica Chastain for her SAG Awards superiority.
Yes! Yay! This is exactly what we were hoping for: Jessica's sizzling Alexander McQueen dress has all but erased the memory of her ill-fitting look from the Golden Globes. The actress proved that redheads and scarlet gowns need not avoid each other, wowing everyone in a form-fitting strapless satin gown and a blazing diamond necklace. Sure, there were a fair few "Jessica Rabbit" references on the part of certain snarky fashion critics, but they're just jealous, no doubt—and we're thrilled to see Jessica back on top of her style game.
As colors go, gray can get a bad rap for being dull and drab. Gray skies? Blah. Gray days? Gloomy. But when it comes to sophisticated style, a mist-colored gown can make for one colorful statement—as demonstrated by a pair of "Glee"-ful girls at the SAG Awards last Sunday. There was nothing grim or ghostly about these gray ladies as they walked the red carpet in two of the evening's most stunning looks. Whose gray glimmer was a cut above the rest of the palette? And whose leggy look cut a little too deep?
Naya Rivera was a stone-cold stunner when she took to the red carpet in this Naeem Kahn gown, winning Style Superstar honors with subtle sparkle, a plunging neckline and a classic silhouette. The almost-lavender gray of the dress is a perfect complement to the warm bronze tones in Naya's skin, and this understated look—with soft waves and only the barest accessories—is sophisticated without being showy.
Fashionably speaking, the SAG awards are the funnest of all awards-season celebrations—a night when the stars relax, unwind and break out some of their more unusual red-carpet looks to celebrate each other's achievements over the past year. And now that the awards have been handed out, it's time for us to give out our own honors to the actresses who best dressed for the occasion. Whose bright, bold and brave style choices caught our fancy last night?
Bright fuchsia frocks have made for many a bridesmaid nightmare, but Dianna Agron was seriously pretty in pink when she wore this Carolina Herrera dress to the awards last night; her sweet braided up-do and light blue jewelry offset the bold color beautifully. And she wasn't the only one sporting a gown in an eye-catching candy color; Emily Blunt showed up in this one-shoulder Oscar de la Renta number with an up-to-there slit and in a hue that reminds us of lemon-lime Jolly Ranchers...in a good way.
Natalie Portman. Mila Kunis. Dianna Agron. Lea Michele. The competition for best dressed at Sunday's SAG Awards was without a doubt a close race, making this week's Style Superstar decision that much harder. When it came down to it, though, we had to admit that there was only one lady who truly outshined her contemporaries in an understated look that we simply can't forget. That being said, for all the great looks on the carpet this year there were also some we wish we could get out of our minds (you'll see what we mean soon enough). Keep reading to find out which lady won our heart, and which needed a serious change of outfit.
We know, we know the "Glee" ladies have been all over our Style Superstar posts lately, but we can't help it! They really know how to pick an outfit! The last time Lea was our fashionista of the week, she tied for the honor with "Vampire Diaries" star Nina Dobrev. This time however, it's all her own. Lea totally owned the red carpet in a stunning gown by her fave designer Oscar de la Renta. What we loved about this look was that it surprised us. After all, her previous wow-worthy de la Renta was a navy ball gown that was over-the-top dramatic. We were expecting something similar, but instead we got elegant and subtle, and loved it just as much.
Love was in the air at Sunday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards, where the winners were gracious and the losers were too! "Glee" may have lost the Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy award to the cast of "Modern Family," but they could only sing their praises. Amber Riley tweeted, "Congratulations Modern Family! You totally deserve it!!!!" Elsewhere, an elated Rico Rodriguez (a.k.a. Manny) tweeted about his cast's win, "Thank you to every SAG member who voted for us. It's a huge honor! So happy that I get to share this w/ my cast! http://t.co/TEOfdsG."
Meanwhile, Rico's on-screen mom Sofia Vergara wasn't just excited about their SAG victory, she was also giddy about meeting Betty White. Sofia, who lost in her category, Outstanding Female in a Comedy Series, to the amazing, unstoppable Betty (pictured), shared with followers, "I'm in heaveeen!!! http://yfrog.com/gzic4wmj." It seems everyone, even actors watching the ceremony from home, was in awe of the 89-year-old actress (who won her first-ever SAG award for her work in the comedy "Hot in Cleveland"), including Lindsay Lohan who wrote, "Betty White is the cutest!!!! So sweet & funny #sagawards."

Before John Stamos, before Gwyneth Paltrow and before Anne Hathaway, Lea Michele's dream "Glee" guest star was pop star/actor/entrepreneur Justin Timberlake (she told us as much way back at the rainy 2010 Golden Globe Awards). Heck, she even dreamed up a Justin-Matthew Morrison dance-off storyline! Fast-forward to today, and how's that cameo from the baddest "Mickey Mouse Club" alumnus coming along? Heather Morris and Harry Shum Jr. had a few tidbits to share while walking the SAG Awards red carpet on Sunday.
"I'm arguing Kristen Wiig and Justin Timberlake," Heather told us when asked which "Glee" guest stars she's rooting for, adding, "I think his music might be coming to our show. Maybe."
His music, huh? You don't say? And which song would that be exactly? A FutureSex/LoveSounds track, perhaps?
The fashions from tonight's SAG Awards red carpet were wonderfully unpredictable. Sure, strapless gowns and understated jewelry continued to be hot trends, but the general mood among Hollywood's young elite was decidedly sexier than usual. Between Hailee Steinfeld's bold stripes and Naya Rivera's bare back, the stars weren't afraid to take fashion risks. Some looked positively dazzling while others veered close to trainwreck territory, but one thing’s for sure: The un-SAG Award goes to…Lea’s décolletage!
"Glee" hotties Lea Michele and Naya Rivera both dazzled in sexy, sparkly gowns that showed off their assets. Lea usually opts for sweet, feminine gowns, so we adore her in this daring Oscar de la Renta frock. From the makeup to the neckline to the minimal jewelry, the ensemble delivered just the right amount of sex appeal. Co-star Naya's dress was almost identical from the waist down, but she chose to bare her back instead of her chest. The result was similarly alluring. Well done, ladies!
From meat dresses to dramatic gowns, 2010 was undoubtedly the year of the fashion statement. Stars like Lady Gaga and Rihanna pushed the envelope with awe-inspiring looks, while others like Taylor Swift, Emma Watson and Lea Michele seriously upped the glam factor. We dissected the best and worst styles throughout the year, but with 2011 fast approaching we thought it was time to give some due credit to those stars who shined brightest. Keep reading to find out which red carpet ladies made the 2010 fashion cut.
Most Talked About Style: Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is known for her outlandish taste (and her affinity for pants-less outfits), but the star went above and beyond when she hit the 2010 Video Music Awards red carpet in a dress made of out meat (accessories included!). Whether you loved it or hated it (and according to our poll, the majority of you weren't fans), there's no denying that Gaga's meat dress had everyone talking for weeks on end.
For every red carpet success, there are about 10 epic fails. Sad, yes, but also true. We're not sure where these ladies went wrong during the award show dress-picking process, but we do know that someone needs to set them straight. Which is why we're here, of course. We've combed through all the dresses from this weekend's Screen Actor's Guild Awards and picked out what we feel are the six worst ensembles. Here's hoping these mistakes aren't repeated!
So, after Anna Paquin's Golden Globes dress disaster, we had hope, real hope, that the actress would bounce back for the SAG Awards. Alas, we were disappointed .. .big time. The "True Blood" star showed up to the carpet in a short, printed Alexander McQueen dress more suited for the after party than the awards ceremony. Nonetheless, the dress was a major downgrade even from her Globes ensemble. Although, on the flip side, at least the shoes matched this time! Another red carpet offender was Drew Barrymore. The "Whip It" star hit the red carpet in a dark blue dress, that we didn't completely dislike. In fact, from the waist-up the corset style top wasn't half bad (the waist-down, however, is another story). What really hurt her look however was the makeup, or better yet, lack thereof. Really Drew, would a dash of lipstick have hurt?

These last few weeks have been pretty award show heavy. First, we had the People's Choice Awards, then the Golden Globes and now, most recently the Screen Actors Guild awards. Not that we're complaining of course! But we can totally understand if you've got award show fatigue. That's why we're here — to help you skip through all the boring stuff (aka the speeches) and get to the stuff you really want to know, like who looked good on the red carpet! So, without further delay, here's our list of the SAG's top six best dressed ladies. Check it out and let us know if you agree.
Lea Michele, you've done your "Glee" fans proud! Lea looked absolutely stunning at the SAG awards red carpet in an eye-catching green Catherine Malandrino gown, with ruffled sleeves and ruched waist. We loved the color of the dress, which totally complemented her dark hair, and the fact that Lea didn't go overboard (as so many stars do), on the accessories. In fact, we were this close to giving Lea top honors as the night's best dressed starlet...but then we caught sight of Diane Kruger. The "Inglorious Bastards" star didn't exactly impress us with her bubblegum pink gown at the Globes last week, but she fully redeemed herself at the SAGs. Diane stole the spotlight in a marigold ensemble by Jason Wu, which totally evoked old Hollywood. Kudos to both ladies for choosing off beat colors!
