SAG 2016: Few Hot… and so Many Others Not!

I wonder what is happening to the award season! We are witnessing more bad taste, more bad looks and more people who wanted to make a fashion statement that turned out to be a complete failure. Thank God we still have Sofia Vergara to wow us in her hot pink Vera Wang custom made gown and Helen Mirren to dazzle us with her Jenny Packham silver gown!

From the 2016 SAG awards red carpet, see who’s hot and who is definitely not!

Elie Saab’s Journey to India!

Saree-inspired gowns with a twist wowed the audience at the 2016 Elie Saab Couture Show in Paris. Princesses enchanted the guests in delicately embroidered pieces featuring grayish waistcoats, glittery bustiers, chiffon skirts, thin belts underlining thin waists and tiny wallets that suit the dreamy adventurous lady Saab is dedicating to his collection.

With a stroke of genius, the Master Elie Saab succeeded in merging modernity and traditions, offering us a trip into the Indian jungles and culture. His color palette is composed of powdered shades of beige, silver and grey, with delicate white and a generous touch of blue, the only “explosive” color of the show. The loose pants and the dupatta (India scarf) highlight the Indian inspiration.

The bride is a vision in her fully and generously embroidered gown featuring a unique veil which carries a hundred stories about Elie Saab’s Indian dream and journey.

The Golden Globes: Who Shined (Most) on the Red Carpet in 2016?

The Golden Globes is, along with the Oscars and Cannes Film Festival, one of the most glamorous times of the year! In 2016, some nailed it overall, while some others did not. Dior and Prada didn’t make it to our list… surprisingly? So who did?

Our time to examine the looks and exhibit the best has finally come… Check our best dressed at the 2016 GG!

  1. Eva Longoria in Georges HobeikaEva-Longoria Georges hobeika
    Eva Longoria is to die for in a magnificent white sleeveless Georges Hobeika FW 2015/16 white gown featuring on the hips beautiful colorful floral designs and a gold waist bow. Hats off for what is the classiest look of the evening!
  1. Jenna Dewan Tatum in Zuhair MuradJenna-Dewan-Tatum Zuhair murad
    “Starry night” could qualify this amazing fully embellished dress signed by Zuhair Murad Jenna Dewan Tatum successfully chose for her red carpet appearance. Perfection at its best!
  1. Gina Rodriguez in Zac PosenGina-Rodriguez zac posen
    Rodriguez looks just stunning in this off-the-shoulder Zac Posen gem. She looks like a princess in the navy blue gown. Thumbs up!
  1. Lady Gaga in GivenchyLady-Gaga versace
    Lady Gaga comes right from a classic movie with her off-the-shoulder custom Givenchy. Her entire look is just stunning… Marilyn till the very end!
  1. Jennifer Lopez in Giambattista ValliJennifer-Lopez giambattista valli
    In her Giambattista Valli Couture gown, JLo is a radiant sun. Just ravishing and glowing… We love the cut, the marvelous cape and the color… not to mention the Harry Winston’s diamonds that shined bright on Lopez’ neck!
  1. Lily James in MarchesaLily-James marchesaJames looks like a fairy in her backless sleeveless tulle dress. It flows like a flawless and angelic fairy in the asymmetric neckline gown.
  2. Eva Green in Elie Saab

    The actress shined in her lace overlay Couture gown. The perfection of her dress contrasted with her makeup and hairstyle … Still, the former Bond girl was a vision in Elie Saab!

  3. Laverne Cox in Elizabeth KennedyLaverne-Cox elizabeth kennedy
    For her first Golden Globe appearance, Cox donned a white dress. She is a vision in this simple yet elegant piece whose best part is the sexy low-plunge back which goes perfectly with the high-neckline, and the flowing train.
  4. Saoirse Ronan in Hedi Selman’s creation for YSLSaoirse-Ronan Yves Saint Laurent Couture by Hedi Slimane
    The look might be safe, but still, when we see a roman style, we cannot pass by indifferently, especially when it is handmade, silky and draped.
