Inspiration From the SAG Awards Red Carpet

There were so many trends I can’t wait to try from the Golden Globes. And the Screen Actors Guild Awards didn’t disappoint either. Get inspired by the gorgeous actresses who walked the red carpet to update your wardrobe with these three trends:


Ariel Winter (Collette Dinnigan), Michelle Williams (Valentino), Stacy Keibler (Marchesa), Emma Stone (Alexander McQueen), Amber Riley, Jennifer Carpenter

Lace adds femininity to any look. While I would do anything to wear Michelle’s red hot gown, a lace skirt is an easier way to incorporate the trend into every day life. Stay tuned this week for fresh ideas in my Staples Series.


Diane Lane (David Meister), Jayma Mays (Reem Acra), Shailene Woodley (L’Wren Scott), Sofia Vergara (Marchesa)

Sweeping your hair back into a ponytail adds a youthful freshness to any evening outfit. Plus, it’s so easy to do! I especially like how the Glee star wrapped a strand of her hair around the hair tie for a Barbie-esque feel.


Amber Heard (Zac Posen), Jenna Ushkowitz (Rebecca Minkoff), Kyra Sedgwick (Pucci)

For those who were too scared to try the trend last season, now if your time. Try a dress with small cutouts on the side of the midsection to enhance an hourglass silhouette.

Michelle Williams and Kyra Sedgwick were two of my top picks of the night. And just for fun, here are my other four…

Emily Blunt (Oscar de la Renta), Octavia Spencer (Tadashi Shoji), Ashlee Simpson (Jenny Packham), Viola Davis (Marchesa)

Who were your faves of the night?

    My favourite was Kaley Cuoco! I’m absolutely loving pastels lately, and her mint green dress with a full skirt was incredible! She complemented it with a beautiful braided hairstyle too!
