Well kids, we are half way through Award Season and so far, we have been given so many jaw dropping moments, I now have to search for an Orthodontist. And when it comes to Sunday night’s Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Red Carpet, well… I’m just praying my dental insurance can cover all of the undoubtedly necessary work. Let’s breakdown my Top Ten Triumphant Lewks! And make sure to check the full artifice on PaperCity’s official website!
10. Henry Golding in Tom Ford
How is it possible this man is so perfect? He’s like the human form of a well crafted Charcuterie plate, there’s literally something for everyone to love. And in that dapper metallic Tom Ford jacket too?! It’s like staring directly into the sexiest sun I have ever seen.
9. Margot Robbie in Chanel
Am I the only one who thinks that they are perfect best friend material for her? Our selfie game would be so friggin strong, I’m just sayin. But in regards to the frock, I love that Margot chose this chic yet quasi demure lewk from Uncle Karl. Makes me think she is going to save the big big guns for the Academy Awards.
8. Laura Harrier in Custom Loewe
So here’s the Tea; This good. This RUHL good. It’s like what I think the women would wear in a land on Game of Thrones populated by gay men, the women that loved them and unicorns. Ah… if only such a land did exist Maybe it could be called YAAS Kweendia or something equally as clever.
7. Betty Gilpin in Krikor Jabotian
I LOVES ME A MARILYN MOMENT Y’ALL!! Everything about this is giving me Ms. Monroe via How to Marry a Millionaire vibes and I cannot stop shimmying my shoulders just thinking about it.
6. Yara Shahidi in Fendi
Little Sis is all kindsa Grownish now!!! And I am still shook that this is actually two separate LEWKS ( a pale blush sequin bodysuit with an all toile overlay?!? ) Spoiler alert: I’m wearing this to Re/Define now!!! And we can totally talk about this pose she’s hitting really anytime you want.
5. Danai Guerra in Ralph & Russo
Miss thing has been low key bringing her A-Game to the carpet this season!! This is Refined and Elegant all with the perfect hint of Jesse Spano era showgirl (say it with me, VersaYce) ala this feathered detail. Breath is officially bated for what she will turn out at the Oscars.
4. Emily Blunt in Michael Kors
It is no secret that I love pink (see any recap I hath ever written), and that I loves me some Emily Blunt, and this just took it to a whole new level of YAAS! And am I on glue, or is this maybe the best red carpet lewk Mr. Kors has sent down the line in quite a while??
3. Lady Gaga in Dior Haute Couture
Ok this just has to be said, I am LIVING on the edge of glory (cue winky face) for this. Especially because it legit just walked the Paris Couture runway basically yesterday. It’s like they said, ‘excuse me model, imma need that dress for Gaga so here’s a terry cloth robe and our esteemed gratitude as a consolation prize’. Head to Toe, makeup to jewels, She done did that thing.
2. Gemma Chan in Oscar de la Renta
Not to sound arrogant, but it is as if the good folks over at Oscar de la Renta thought to themselves ‘Reed really loves a good high low moment. And he loves pink. And some sort of a bow situation. Why don’t we make him black out from pure joy’. I mean, no one can actually say if they did or didn’t do that, so… yea. And straight up, I’m starting a kickstarter campaign to unearth the secrets as to how Gemma Chan can literally be this flawless. And lastly, we are now three for three with Ms. Chan. From the Globes, to the Critic’s Choice Awards and now with this gorgeous showing at the SAG Awards, she is showing no signs of slowing down the fabulous anytime soon.
and now… my number one Red Carpet moment from the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards goes to…
Mandy Moore in Custom Jason Wu
So this was so good I felt it necessary to call my grandmother and tell her about it. COULD SHE BE MORE STATUESQUE?! This LEWK is so iconic it could be a recipient at next year’s Kennedy Center Honors. And I do not have the time or finger dexterity to go as in depth as I would like about that ponytail. But in a word; stupendous. Also, the fact that this dress was made with a message (Wu created this in collaboration with UNICEF to shed light on the global needs of children) makes it even more perfect. I mean, you already had me crying and then you add a charitable tie in?!? It’s like watching Step Mom; I’M WEEPING!
