SAG Awards red carpet: A royal soiree or a royal yawn?

The color keeps coming on the red carpet.

Justin Timberlake is rocking a charcoal gray Dolce & Gabbana tuxedo with a pleated storm blue shirt and a black bow tie. It's unexpected, and it looks great. Best dressed male so far for sure.

Lea Michele ("Glee") chose a ruffled emerald green dress by Malandrino, which is a cut above the staid black Oscar de la Renta she wore at the Globes, but still safe. Diane Kruger ("Inglourious Basterds") is in a one-shouldered Jason Wu gown in a daring hue: mustard yellow. One of Michelle Obama's designers, one of Michelle Obama's colors.

Sandra Bullock ("The Blind Side") is wearing the tamest-looking Alexander McQueen gown I've ever seen -- black, short sleeves, with a keyhole opening and blue beading at the neckline.

Still haven't seen anyone who has knocked my socks off. On second glance, Vera Farmiga's ("Up in the Air") cloud-like J. Mendel gown washes her out.

Slightly more interesting are Marion Cotillard in an Elie Saab beaded white gown with one structured shoulder and Kate Hudson in a white long-sleeved gown.

Is Sophia Loren wearing Penelope Cruz's black Giorgio Armani gown from the Globes?

Wow. I'm glad someone more qualified is finally judging the red carpet for the Sags. Lea' gown was a complete 180 from the that of the Globes, but, as you said, still safe, while Vera's was pretty but didn't do anything for her. Marion is in my top 5 (or 3) with her stunning, chic, and architecturally interesting dress, yet most people disagree or say it's one of the worst. Drew's dress was another favorite of mine (I thought it was Dior), but anything that wasn't in HD made her makeup wash her out. I have to say that my #1, however, is Diane Kruger. Her dress was beyond gorgeous and instantly reminded me of Michelle William's Vera Wang stunner from a few years back (it didn't hurt that they both rock(ed) pale skin, blonde hair, & red lips as well...)

I must say the stylist is a genious. His name is Michael Nash from New York. An amazing job. Check his porfolio at:
