SAG’s Risk Takers

The Biggest Fashion Risk Takers on the SAG Red Carpet


How do you make something as commonplace on the red carpet as a shrunken tee seem shocking? Oh, you know, just by wearing one while you’re pregnant. Washington has us redefining maternity wear with this revealing pink Prada top.

Roberts has been on her fair share of red carpets, so it’s understandable if she’s grown sick of wearing boring old gowns and decided to shake things up with a plunging, very wide-leg pink onesie.

We’re into sheer. We’re into silk. We’re into color-blocking. We’re into paillettes. But are we into all those things at once? If anyone can convince us that this Vionnet gown works, it’s Danes.

After ditching the heels at the Globes, Thompson clearly learned her lesson. She selected Louboutin sandals without even a hint of a heel. Somewhere, Shailene Woodley is smiling smugly.

Perhaps trying to debunk her reputation as a diva, Carey attempts to convince us that she took, not a limo, but rather a motorcycle to the awards show, hence the need for those badass and perplexing leather accessories.

Lena in a bright-yellow sweetheart gown didn’t win you over, but McConaughey gives it a go in a bold-hued Donna Karan Atelier design. (One thing that’s not up for debate: how stunning that draping is.)


And here we were thinking you couldn’t go wrong with on-trend lace. Then again, we didn’t expect to see the dainty fabric over a heavy lavender dress in the form of a mock turtleneck with ruffles, as Bialik wears it.

SAG 2014 – Hair Trend


natalie-dormer-1-435 natalie-dormer-2-435 natalie-dormer-3-435We asked that a star show up on the red carpet with a major hair change – and the Game of Thrones actress answers our wish! She sent our jaws south by debuting a half-shaved do, which she claimed was “liberating.”



The actress shows off the open back of her Givenchy halter by wearing her hair in a side-parted, low, deconstructed bun.

Her Lanvin dress needed little accessorizing to stand out and it didn’t need a major hairstyle either. Sandra opts for a simple, but slightly messy (in a good way), low bun with plenty of volume at the crown.


We knew at least one braid would pop up on this red carpet, but we didn’t expect to see anything like this. Malin sports a thin plait that starts at the nape of her neck and takes a left turn toward her ear, adding volume at the crown.

You’d be forgiven for giving all your attention to her marigold Donna Karan Atelier gown and missing her hair completely, so allow us to refocus your gaze on her perfect half-up do with a few loose pieces framing her face.

Golden Globes – The Best Dressed Stars


We’re just relieved to see Lady Mary out of mourning-black. She shines in a strapless Oscar de la Renta gown covered in dazzling silver beading, with a high-low hemline that gives us a peek at those coordinating Christian Louboutin heels.


We knew someone would wear this Zuhair Murad gown sometime this season! Kate makes our style prediction come true by hitting the carpet in a gorgeous mermaid gown covered in silver beading.


We’ll hold our tongues when it comes to her blown-back hair, but we’re happy to talk about the actress’s classic black sweetheart gown, which gets some added visual appeal thanks to the pretty burnout design on the bodice.


She may be at the Globes to present, but Naomi looks like she could pass for an award statue herself in a shimmery allover-beaded Tom Ford halter with subtle sheer cutouts on the bodice. And check out how the gold chainlink on the neckline of the dress coordinates with her snakeskin clutch and bracelet.


“I put this on and I was like, ‘There’s only one place to wear this to.'” The nominee is right: The Golden Globes is just the moment for her Andrew Gn black gown with a décolletage-baring neckline and golden coral-like detailing on the cap sleeves and bottom half of the voluminous skirt.


Someone got the lace memo. Cate has a dramatic moment in a high-neck sheer dress that looks even better going than coming thanks to the open back.

Caitlin FitzGerald

The “Masters of Sex” wore a baby blue spring 2014 Emilia Wickstead dress with an elegant hemline.


Nothing but the best for the Duchess of Bay Ridge. The Wolf of Wall Street actress shows off her amazing (no, seriously, ah-may-zing) body in a high-slit, plunging custom Gucci gown featuring not only embroidered crystals, but emeralds too. (We love that she said, “I can’t believe I’m wearing something this expensive,” of the Van Cleef & Arpels earrings!)


“I feel like I’m carrying a tent,” the nominee shares of her Zac Posen design with its sweetheart neckline that certainly shows off her assets and a major skirt. But we want to know what something else feels like: getting to wear that over-the-top Lorraine Schwartz necklace around your neck.

Mila Kunis

Kunis wore a simple gray column dress at the Golden Globes — but it was made into a magnificent work of fashion  with the addition of some serious gray sequins and an even more serious cluster of sparkly flowers at the neck.

Beyoncé’s Grammy Nails

Everyone has already talked about Beyoncé‘s hair, her performance with Jay Z and that fierce white gown she wore to the Grammys.

Now, it’s time to talk about her tips — and we have all the exclusive scoop, straight from her manicurist Lisa Logan!Image

First, take a moment to pick your jaw off the floor after staring at that insane photo above. The singer’s Lorraine Schwartz diamond rings are stunning (and we love the close-up view of her engagement ring!). Once you move past all that bling, you’ll notice her nails are perfect as well — painted with a custom burgundy hue courtesy of Sephora’s Formula X collection.30091320_web


Logan added: “She’s a creative source. So it helps us pull our best and bring her vision to life. It’s a bunch of moving parts and each and every one of us has a part to bring to life what her vision is. I’m not going to walk into a room and say ‘Orange is a new color!’ and push it on her if that’s not what she wants.”put the ‘Pedal to the Metal‘ on her nails first, and we all agreed how gorgeous it was. Then I swiped the red glitter “Atom + Eve” over it and it deepened to, like, a red-purple. It was beautiful.”“She did make mention she wanted between a red and a purple,” Logan told about the nail process.

And while the singer chose a more classic mani to go with her bold Grammys performance, in her downtime, she loves to experiment with her nails. “She’s totally a fun girl when it comes to her nails,” Logan said. “We haven’t been doing a lot of design lately, but when we did the series of music videos there were a lot of times that we did really cool, fun designs.”

Since dropping her digital album in December, Bey has been even more fearless in the fashion and beauty department. Even her glam squad is taking notice. “I feel she has evolved in every sense of the word. She’s a sexier wife, a more daring sexier mom,” Logan said. “She’s not like, ‘Now I’m wearing nude nails, because I’m a mom.’ She’s a youthful spirit she knows how to have fun and still be tasteful. If she doesn’t have a design on every nail she still chooses a fun color. She has an eye for color and style.”

Catherine Tyldesley – National Television Awards 2014


Catherine Tyldesley attended the 2014 National Television Awards held in London.


The ‘Coronation Street’ actress took my breath-away wearing a Nevena London black gown with featuring a pretty lace bodice and sleeves.

I was awe struck by her gothic gown. Since I’m so used to seeing the actress’ character wearing cleavage baring, ill-fitted dresses, I couldn’t be more stunned by this transformation to glamorous, screen siren. 

Go big or go home? She went big, and then some.

A sweeping updo and punchy pink lip rounded out her look.

Grammy – Hair & Makeup Trends

To say the hair and makeup at the 2014 Grammy Awards was a bit underwhelming would be an understatement?

Luckily, there were a few celebrities who made it to the red carpet before the show started wearing some beautiful, bronzed looks. From Chrissy Teigen‘s ombre waves and sun-kissed skin to Ciara‘s gorgeous mommy glow to Rita Ora’s amazing blond curls, these ladies were absolutely beaming.

See the best and worst beauty picks at the 2014 Grammy Awards.


Chrissy Teigen


We haven’t stopped talking about Chrissy Teigen’s whole look (that dress!) since she hit the carpet, but it’s her hair that we’re most obsessed with. Love the length, love the texture, love the accent braid.

Rita Ora


The Roc Nation artist continues to channel a modern-day Marilyn Monroe with her full-bodied blonde curls, bold brows and matte pink lips. The purple smokey eyeshadow and false eyelashes add a modern touch.

Taylor Swift


While Swift’s shiny Grammys dress was phenomenal, her eye makeup… not so much. A more subtle smokey eye or simple winged-out liner would have worked with her casual ponytail and pink lipstick.

Bonnie McKee


We were afraid that McKee would transform into Sonic the Hedgehog with just a whip of her flaming red hair. The dramatic hairstyle with her heavy makeup come across as very harsh.

Colbie Caillat


Caillat’s severe topknot, runny mascara and faded lipstick left us scratching our heads and wondering if the singer ran out of time to get ready for the red carpet.

Cara Quici


We had no clue who Quici was before she showed up with this “Bride of Frankenstein” hair. It distracts from her otherwise pretty makeup.

The Hottest Dates at the Grammys? Kids & Kin!


ImageNothing calms the nerves like having mom with you! Musgraves (nominated for a whopping four Grammys and winner of two) brings her artist mama Karen with her to the show, where she also performed her single “Follow Your Arrow.”


ImageEstefan, in red lace, complements mini-me 19-year-old daughter Emily’s red-hot ensemble at the show, where the singer was nominated for best traditional pop vocal album and best instrumental arrangement accompanying vocalists.



It’s hard to say who rocked their Ralph Lauren suit better, Madonna or her son David, 8. The Queen of Pop gets the edge with her ever-present grill; but not to worry – sounds like David will be getting one of his own soon.



Presenter Leto comes with an entourage: 30 Seconds to Mars bandmate Tomo Miličević and older brother and drummer Shannon Leto, who also joined him at the Golden Globes (guessmom had to stay home this time!).



Perry, who is nominated for both song of the year and best pop solo performance for “Roar,” is more than happy to share the spotlight with her little bro, aspiring singer David Hudson (who goes by the stage name Hudson), on the red carpet.



Surprise, Saget is nominated for a Grammy! The comedian and former Full House patriarch nabbed a nod for best comedy album for That’s What I’m Talkin’ About, and brought his grown-up daughter Lara with him to celebrate.



Foxx’s daughter Corinne, 20 next month, is getting plenty of practice walking the red carpet these days – and lots of practice primping, too! “The prepping begins!” she Tweeted five hours before show time.



Tip your hat to these two! Grammy presenter Ono made sure to coordinate her outfit with musician Sean Lennon, her son with the late John Lennon. The oh-so-hip pair was on hand to see the Beatles honored with a well-deserved Lifetime Achievement Award.
