Major trend alert at the Screen Actors’ Guild (SAG) Awards: there was a sea of blue on the red carpet. Cobalt, cornflower, baby blue...every shade you can imagine! There was so much gorgeous blue on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, it got me singing that Eiffel 65 song of the same name!
Blue is a great color that flatters almost everyone, evidenced by the fact that it looked so great on such a range of women with different coloring. The shade makes blue eyes pop, provides gorgeous contrast to dark hair, and plays up even the slightest hint of a tan.
Kate Winslet (above left) looked amazing in blue on the latest InStyle magazine cover, and she continued to stun in a cobalt blue Narciso Rodriguez gown (accessorized with Chopard gems).
Slumdog Millionaire’s Freida Pinto (at right) wore a baby blue gown by Marchesa, and she looked absolutely gorgeous. The dress was a perfect complement to Pinto’s hair and skin tone. Normally, I’m very much against coordinated makeup and outfit, but Pinto’s smoky blue eye makeup was the perfect. The actress completed the look with a 53-carat diamond bracelet in her hair.
Even when a blue ensemble was a little boring, the color still popped. I don’t know when Angelina Jolie decided to start actually dressing like someone’s mom, but she's taken it to the extreme. Her Max Azria dress was beyond blah from the front, an unremarkable drape-like gown reminiscent of the 1970’s -- and not in a fun way. The plunging back is the only thing that saves St. Angie from looking like a bridesmaid -- or maybe the mother of the bride.
My favorite look of the night belonged to Evan Rachel Wood (at left). Her flowing deep blue Monique Lhullier gown played up the color of her eyes and creamy complexion, and complimented her blonde waves. Almost as eye catching was her large lapis and gold Neil Lane bracelet, which tied together her ensemble beautifully.
So get ready to get tangled up in blue this spring -- everyone will be wearing it, if the SAG Awards are any indication!
