Ahead of the Screen Actors Guild awards, we have had the Screen Producers Awards, which were another feast for my fashionista eyes. Unusually, a lady who I think has been absolutely nailing it on the red carpet at the moment, Anne Hathaway, didn’t make my top five in a pretty floral dress that was lovely, but more summer wedding than January red carpet. Also not making my list was Amanda Seyfried, who chose to wear gorgeous zesty orange, but in a creased and ill-fitting dress.
But there were some real movie stars out there too. Here are my favourite five of the night.
Julianna Margulies was a 1940s movie siren just waiting to lure Robert Mitchum to his doom. With her vampish make-up and Veronica Lake hair, Julianna could’ve appeared straight from the set of an Otto Preminger movie. The dress, fittingly was vintage, and the whole look summed up why I just adore Julianna’s style on the red carpet.
The black lace design was like the sexiest merry widow get up ever, and Jessica wisely kept her accessories to a minimum with this design. A total showstopper.
Kerry Washington has been making real style waves of late. I loved her look at the Golden Globes, and think this lingerie style dress is another winner. The dress, from Marchesa, could’ve seemed a bit showgirl on another celebrity, but Kelly’s choppy hairstyle, use of pink accents and simple elegant heels made this a totally wonderful look.
Jennifer Garner is an actress who has become increasingly classic in her style choices. I loved this frilly cocktail dress by Oscar De La Renta. It might seem a simple look at first glance, but this dress is absolutely exquisite up close, with a brocade style print and structured frill detail. I also love her Kate Middleton hairstyle.
In a sea of very elegant black dresses came Hannah Simone in a sea of blue. This was just fabulous – the Sofia Vergara moment of the night. Hannah’ s dress was super sexy in a Jessica Rabbit way, and by keeping accessories to a minimum, she let the dress just speak for itself and ensured the vintage style dress looked ultra modern.
