My Favorite Modest Looks From the 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards
Like I mentioned in my Golden Globes post, I firmly believe in modest fashion at modest prices. But come awards season...I love to admire all the glamour!
At last night's 24th Screen Actors Guild Awards, Hollywood honored the best achievements in film and television performances for 2017. And on the red carpet, their were a handful of modest looks that deserved their own set of awards too!
Unlike at the Globes, Tinseltown's trendiest embraced color, metallics, and bold patterns at the SAGs. And while others chose to show some skin, there were a number of actresses who embraced their femininity through more demure style choices.
Scroll my modest Best Dressed picks below.
Nicole Kidman in Armani Privé
The Big Little Lies star took home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Television Movie or Miniseries - and in this gorgeous bronze sequin gown with matching heels, she won the red carpet as well! The floral embellishment at the neck draws attention upwards while the full-length sleeves and form fit highlight her gorgeous curves. Nic, you've done it again. Bravo!
Allison Janney in Yanina
Allison looked positively radiant in her silver sequined floor-grazing frock. With metallic make-up, nails, and accessories to match, she commanded confidence on the red carpet. And those 80s-inspired power shoulders were the cherry on top. Well, that, and her SAG award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role for her depiction of LaVona Harding in I, Tonya. Simply stunning.
Marisa Tomei in Laura Basci
Wearing a hand-beaded pale pink frock, the Spiderman: Homecoming actress basically fulfills every one of my bridesmaid dress fantasies for a day wedding; allover embellishment, full sleeves, high-neck, midi length. Oh so elegant.
Saoirse Ronan in Louis Vuitton
I debated on whether to include Saoirse's look in my roundup due to the obvious thigh-high slits on her lavender Louis Vuittion...but I felt that if it weren't for them this look would've been pretty perfect, so I opted to include the Lady Bird actress here for that reason. Lavender is set to make big waves for spring and the sleek inclusion of silver sequined embellishment makes her full sleeves and floor length frock look edgy and modern.
Laura Gómez in CD Greene
You might not recognize the Orange is the New Black actress out of her prison garb, but in this glitzy white frock, she scrubs up well! Many were in dispute about Laura's look, but I think she pulled off the Grecian-inspired gown with cool-girl flair. While the silver discs on top add a dose of fun to ensure the look doesn't skew too bridal, her monochrome make-up and middle-parted tresses add just the right amount of sultriness.
Kate Hudson in Valentino
While the Twittersphere was in commotion about Kate's dress, I included it here because bold pattern, mixed fabrics, and lavender are three of the biggest trends for spring. And Kate rocked them all. A high lace neckline? Check. Allover hearts? Check - we all need more love in the world. Pink-y lavender frills and tiers? Check. Everyone's cup of tea? Maybe not. But in a world where sameness is boring, Kate took one for the team. And I think she epitomizes bold and beautiful.
