Is she in a hair rut? I feel like she’s in a hair rut. And a dress rut too. Like, enough with the flared bottom mermaid business. It’s tired. And while black is never bad, and of course she doesn’t look bad, she also looks boring. Seen it a thousand times, almost as though she didn’t care. Full Story

Best SAG Red: Diane Lane

Good example of who is wearing it, how she wears it. This was pretty much Freida Pinto’s dress in red. But Diane Lane is not a delicate woman-child. Diane Lane is fire and experience, looks her age and her age is just right, a total sex pot who just celebrated her 44th birthday a few days ago…which means she too is older than Granny Freeze Nicole Kidman. Full Story

SAG Ladies and Ralph: Meryl, Susan, Kristin

Awards season means the likes of Lauren Conrad are shoved to the side…have you noticed? It’s time for real stars, real celebrity, so f-ck off reality twats because Meryl Streep has just won a SAG. Wearing a pantsuit. Heh. Love that Meryl is never super appreciative. That she doesn’t have to be. Full Story

SAG Prom: Freida Pinto

Please. Find her a stylist. Or sack the existing one. It’s a crime this girl, as gorgeous as she is, cannot live up to her true potential on a big night. Because at every major carpet this season, Freida Pinto is wearing a prom dress. SAG was no exception. It’s the colour. Gross. It’s the old lady weaving in the chest area that screams Arlene’s Dress Shoppe – for all your fancy occasions! Brutal. Full Story

Best SAG Reese Witherspoon: Tina Fey

Two years ago at the Golden Globes, ready to emerge from her divorce, Reese Witherspoon showed up at the Globes wearing a bright yellow strapless cocktail length Nina Ricci in one of the freshest looks of the season. It’s a different colour and obviously not exactly the same, but something about Tina Fey reminded me of Reese last night. Full Story

Worst SAG White: Teri Hatcher

Desperate Housewives is still bringing big ratings. This explains why they’re still invited. But really…it’s not 2004 anymore. People may care about the show, but no one cares about the actors. So far all intents and purposes, it’s like they’re CSI, you know what I mean? This must be why they insist on slapping us in the face on the carpet for fear we won’t notice. Full Story

Best SAG White: Taraji P Henson

Benjamin Button’s brightest star looked like heaven last night in form-fitting white and an open back and restrained accessories and unfussy hair. Hustle & Flow was one of the options on the plane flying over here. Yet another reminder of her scene-stealing abilities. Scene-stealing from bland Brad Pitt is one thing…but stealing from Terrence Howard is another. Full Story

Washed her out. Badly. She has such beautiful skin. Normally it pops. The taupe stopped the pop. The taupe killed the pop. Duana took issue with the chest area. The way the tulle is pinned - it’s a mess. And look closely. See if you can zoom in to where the bodice meets the skirt. The exposed stitching…it’s WHITE. Full Story

SAG Best Body: Kate Winslet

It’s a real woman’s body, right? Especially in this dress. Authentic breasts, the presence of hips – HIPS! – and curves and an ass and she’s fit, but she eats too, and while there may or may not be some Spanx activation, at the same time you also know she’s not a double user like Beyonce, who sucks in that sh-t with two pairs on the regular and sometimes, they say, even three. Full Story

SAG Disappointing: Emily Blunt

That’s a sick body. But that is also a low classy looking dress. And it breaks my heart. Because as you know, Emily Blunt is a favourite. But this…this is budget. When the seam that splits from her breasts does not travel a straight line down, all the way down, to me that screams cheap. It’s unpolished. Full Story

SAG Most Improved: Jenna Fischer

She’s normally at hot mess at awards shows. Like, Jenna Fischer canNOT get it together. So, all things considered, this isn’t bad. Nothing stands out, nothing offends, nothing terribly remarkable, the hair is soft and wavy, the makeup soft and pretty, the breasts respectfully and not garishly on display…. Full Story
