Screen Actors Guild Awards: Fashion

The Screen Actors Guild Awards are an annual award given by the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) to recognize outstanding performances by members. SAG Awards have been one of the major awards events in Hollywood since 1995. Nominations for the awards come from 4200 randomly selected members of the union, with the full membership (120,000 as of 2007) available to vote for the winners.

This year was the 15th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards and the fashion was kept simple. Almost everyone had the look of “Old Hollywood” with solid colors, no bold jewelery, and hair up in buns.

Color was the trend of the night, as actresses walked the red carpet in hues of blue, white, red, tangeraine and bright yellow. Another trend that seems to be carrying on through this awards season — and one Michelle Obama championed on inauguration night — is the one-shouldered gown. Here are a few of my favorites.

A Little Bit About…Tory Burch

It-GirlWhile living in New York city, It-Girl, Tory Burch, has maintained personal relationships with a series of extremely wealthy men. With the financial savvy of her former second husband, she began a fashion label in February 2004 in New York City. It was an immediate success and was even endorsed by Oprah Winfrey the following year. Her label has opened stores in several large American cities and has lines that are sold in several upscale specialty department stores.Logo

FlatsShe is most famous for her affordable, modernized classics, from trademark patterns to easy-chic flats topped with her graphic hardware logo. For an overnight sensation, Burch’s formula for success is as close to home as it comes. She draws inspiration from American icons of the sixties and seventies, including her fashionable mom—but ultimately, she is her own best muse. Tory Burch has won many fashion awards for her designs, and she continues to be involved in high profile personal relationships within the social elite of New York City.

Sarah Jessica ParkerOf course, Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing this extravagant hat to the Sex and the City primere.

Marc Jacobs ShoesThese shoes designed by Marc Jacobs are called the “Inverted Heel” with the heel under the arch of your foot, instead of on the actual heel.


Be Careful!!WOW. This is a definitely a big difference to what we are used to seeing. British Designer Antonio Beradi designed these sky-high heels without any heel! It’s 5 1/2 inches off the ground…talk about scary!

Fashion Difference in Just 9 Years

I researched back to the Fashion Week in 2000 and couldn’t believe what I found. In just about 9 years, the fashion has already changed dramatically.

Do’s and Dont’s

The most thing that women lack is confidence. You need to have confidence in order to really shine into the beautiful person that you really are. Everyone has “problems” or something that they don’t like about their body. This year, you need to learn to live with your flaws. Walk a little edgier. Hold your head up a little higher. Smile and show off your own unique self to others. Trust me, people will envy what you have: confidence. Here are a few Do’s and Don’ts to help you out.


Orange is chic!DO:

  • Wear high-waisted skirts into the new year: When wearing these stylish skirts, remember to keep your hair, makeup, and accesories modern. Make sure that you tuck your top into the skirt and maybe add a simple belt to achieve the full affect.


  • Stock up orange – it’s the new purple for 2009: Orange is my personal favorite color! I think we’re going to be seeing a lot of brights because even though people are sad, they want to put on a happy face and the big color that’s working right now is orange. I also think we’re also going to be seeing a lot of blues, greens and pinks.


  • Style the bold necklaces: Go for vintage. Some of the best “bold” jewelry pieces can be found for cheap at vintage or thrift stores. Aged pieces tend to have lots of character and pizzazz and can say a lot about your personality. Not to mention, it’s much easier on your wallet.


  • Keep the black (and colored) leggings: Stay away from too-sheer leggings. Other than that, go crazy with prints and colors as long as its matched with a solid color outfit.


  • Switch from black to white nail polish: Black nail polish was all the rage in 2008, which I attribute to the neo-goth “Twilight” phenomenon. I think white nail polish and more French manicures with be seen this year.


  • Mix black and brown, as well as silver and gold: It has always been a rule that black and brown and silver and gold do not go together. Lately in the fashion world, people have broken rules like “don’t wear white after labor day” rule (another “do”!) and “always match your shoes with your handbag” rule.  Mix the colors! Mix the metals! After all, rules are meant to be broken, right?




  • Let magazines take over your own style: Sure, you can go to magazines for style tips and suggestions, but don’t let it over-rule your personal style. That’s what make you unique.


  • Example of a Fashion Victim! She looks too clutteredWear baggy clothes: Go with form fitted or tailored clothes, which are so much more flattering than baggy clothes. Even if you are plus sized, DO NOT wear baggy clothes! It makes you look heavier than you actually are.


  • Let boots count as pants: Please wear pants! Even if you think your shirt is long, it’s tacky to wear just boots with no pants. Even if your boots are extra-long!


  • Have underwear lines: Don’t wear dark colored thongs with white pants, either. Get a pair of good nude underwear that doesn’t show lines for a sleek, clean look.


  • Mix too many patterns together: Mixing patterns and colors are in, but there are some rules! Make sure that you at least pick colors that compliment each other and patterns that will coordinate so that you don’t look like a circus clown.


  • Let yourself go all out with trends: Make sure that you don’t become too much of a fashion victim or a fashionista. You don’t want to waste all of your money on things that you won’t be able to wear the next season.
