Red Carpet Recap: 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards

Happy Monday!

I love Awards Season because it gives me something to look forward to on Sundays (and it also makes me forget that it's almost time to go back to school, haha!). ;)

Anyway, let's start talking about what the stars wore to yesterday's awards show:

Jessica Chastain -

Jessica Chastain

I don't usually go crazy over what Jessica Chastain wears on the red carpet, but I really loved this red Alexander McQueen gown -- it really fits her perfectly and it looks amazing on her!

I also love how she kept things simple by choosing to just sport a gorgeous Harry Winston splash diamond necklace -- it's set in platinum and it's just beautiful! :)

Jennifer Garner -

Her gold Oscar de la Renta gown looks so luxurious and so opulent!
I love Jennifer Garner! :D

Amanda Seyfried -

Amanda Seyfried

I love love love the bottom part and the train of Amanda's Zac Posen dress -- it's so fun and so beautiful!
At first, I wasn't sure about her Lorraine Schwartz necklace, but somehow it totally works. :)

Nina Dobrev -

Nina Dobrev

Same as with Jessica Chastain, I'm not usually a fan of Nina Dobrev's red carpet choices, but I really loved this pink short-sleeve crepe gown with lace cutout detail -- you know why?! It's Elie Saab, that's why! ;)

Anne Hathaway -

Anne Hathaway

I love Anne and I am totally keeping my fingers crossed for her -- I hope she wins an Oscar!
However, I am not sure if this Giambattista Valli Couture dress is a winner for me... yeah, no, it's not working for me. :/

But hey, I like her custom vegan Jimmy Choo shoes, Kwiat jewels, and Eddie Parker clutch. ;)

Jennifer Lawrence -

Jennifer Lawrence

This whole dress fiasco is just so confusing... why aren't the two parts of her Dior Haute Couture dress sewn well together?
It feels like the design of this gown wasn't that well thought-out.

 However, her Chopard jewelry is definitely beautiful.
And kudos to the Best Actress winner -- she still walked the red carpet despite being sick with walking pneumonia!

Kerry Washington -

Kerry Washington

I am just not feeling the look of this Rodarte dress... and her hair wasn't the best either. :/

Freida Pinto -

Freida Pinto and Dev Pate …

This look is just all wrong!!!
Her Roland Mouret gown is ill-fitting, not flattering at all. Her hair and makeup -- not up to par. :/

There we have it, that's the end of my 2013 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet recap!
Because I wanted to keep this short, there are a ton of looks not included on this post, so tell me...

Whose look did you like the best? Whose look did you not like at all?
What do you think of these ladies' red carpet ensembles?

I hope you are all having a great start to the week!
