The ladies brought out their A game for the 2017 SAG Awards, with almost everyone completely knocking it out of the park with their looks. The common themes for the night were lots of matching eye looks with their outfits, dark bold lip statements and no surprise many nudes that were picture perfect. I had a REALLY hard time deciding the Top 10; it took a while but I managed to pick the below (in no particular order).
1. MICHELLE DOCKERY
Sometimes a little match-matchy is a great idea when it’s pulled off well, and Michelle most certainly did that. She wore a dress with bold multi-colored vertical stripes. and her makeup perfectly complimented the look allowing the dress to standout. Both her eye-shadow and lipstick picked up the pinks and oranges from the dress. The eyes were just a perfect balance of color and light smokiness. The lips were brighter and had dual tones of pink and orange.
2. TARAJI P. HENSON
Even with the endless events during the awards season, Taraji just never fails on the red carpet and I always look forward to seeing what she’s wearing. For the SAGs she went for a very delicate taupe dress with silver/grey sequins in a floral pattern. Her makeup was almost minimalistic with a shimmering taupe eyeshadow and matching satin lipstick. She went much bolder with her hair wearing the asymetric bob look which has been the hairstyle of the past year.
3. KATE HUDSON
Kate Hudson is gorgeous, I’m convinced that she can never look bad ever even if she were wearing a trash bag! But the woman knows style and exactly what looks good on her. A bold lip was a common theme of the night but by far she was the winner in that category! Her dress was black, see through, sequiny and somehow flowy all at the same time (although I don’t get that weird flower bouquet at the front). The dark maroon lips, on point cheek contouring and mashes that stood out from a mile away created a very strong look that held its own with that equally bold dress.
4. EMMA STONE
Emma stone had quite the night awards wise, and she was perfectly dressed for it. Her dress was part lacy bodysuit and partly draped gown. The embroidered lilies were clearly the inspiration for both the earings and her eyeshadow. She had green gem colored eyeshadow on the outer lids which almost matched her eyes perfectly making them pop even more, and a light golden touch in the inner corners. When you have megawatt smile like that, you don’t need much makeup going on, and the look was completed with a pink nude lipstick.
5. CHRISSY TEIGEN
Chrissy Teigan and John Legend are one of the cutest couples on the red carpet, and on top of that they are both gorgeous! Chrissy wore a black understated suit style dress that hugged her in all the right places, with a deep neck and thigh high to boot! She’s a model so of course she can pull it off! Although she wore a bright orange-red lip, it was her glowy, picture perfect skin that really stole the show. If only we could only get skin like that.
6. NAOMIE HARRIS
I do not know much about Naomie Harris honestly but her look really stood out to me. Her pink pants and top with black accents and stripes was definitely different but it was her nude, very natural makeup that was note-worthy. It lets her outfit and that amazing bone-structure stand out.
7. SOPHIA VERGARA
Sophia Vergara is very va-va-voom and she’s not afraid to show off her curves! However she went a little different for the 2017 SAGs and didn’t go for her usual body hugging silhouette. Of course that doesn’t mean she wasn’t full on sexy nonetheless; Her dress for the SAGs this year was a glam version of a prom dress (in my opinion), with a fitted sleeveless bodice in silver, and a poofy lower half in black. However she didn’t take many risks with her makeup, and stuck to a basic eye look with eyelashes on point, and a red lip. Sometimes sticking to the classics is all you need.
8. KERRY WASHINGTON
I became a huge fan of Kerry Washington while watching Scandal; She can act and she’s got great fashion sense. Not one to shy away from a bold or unique look, she went with an off-the-shoulder, white sparkly dress (plus a Safety pin that many celebrities have been seen sporting in solidarity with marginalized groups) . Kerry had one of the boldest smokey eyes of the night with the perfect nude lip shade.
9. MICHELLE WILLIAMS
Michelle Williams is one of the cutest stars in Hollywood and that pixie haircut gives a very youthful look. Some of her red carpet outfits can be a bit hit-or-miss but today she hit it out of the park with a black, gold and silver sequined dress that was sophisticated and glamorous (although personally I wish she had skipped that skinny neck scarf thing).With that kind of dress you want to keep the makeup subtle and that’s exactly what she did with well defined eyes, a natural lip and a from-within glow.
