The 2010 SAG awards was definitely an interesting show of fashion. Without all the extreme glam of the Academy Awards, this red carpet show was more accessible and ready wear. Little touches to the actresses showed their personalities in the accessories.
Instead of one major trend, there were many. The color white once again was a main component. Kate Hudson chose the color again dressed in Pucci, since the Globes last week and look stunning. The front of the dress was completely modest but allowing for the sexiest back. Stylist, Rachel Zoe, turned Kate's Cartier necklace backwards allowing it to drip down her back, a totally unique, beautiful idea.
Marion Coltilliard also shined in a Ellie Saab Haute Couture. Her updo was a twenties bun allowing this asymetrical modern mini-dress to take center stage. The feathers surrounding the bottom were refreshing and the bold sequin embellishments allowed for such a perfection combination. The Chopard emerald was exactly the right amount of color.
Drew Barrymore wowed again in a navy in Monique Lhuillier in opposition to the nude color choice last week. Lhuillier is known for femininity and this dress defined it with the trumpet cascading tiered detailed skirt. Her hair took a risk with the bouffant but Drew managed to pull it off. The simple makeup, bare neck and wrists, pulled this whole look together. The dress spoke for itself.
This biggest risk taker in the color category was Diane Kruger in her marigold Jason Wu gown. The train on the dress was so classic yet once again is the modern asymertical shoulder making an appearance. She wore it perfectly right down to the red lips, Harry Winston ruby jewels and the contrast in the gold clutch.
The surprise stunner for the night was Michelle Monaghan who sparkled in her custom beaded Calvin Klein gown. It was so different and unlike any dress of the evening. The way the color silver and purple trickled down was gorgeous. The one bare arm was the sexy touch to this look along with the long tousled waves brushed to the side.
