The SAG Awards: The Good, The Bad & The Trends

Another week, another myriad of gorgeous gowns to gawp over. Oh, Awards Season, we love you!

Last week we bought you hits and misses from the Golden Globes, today we're rounding up the red carpet trends from Saturday night's Screen Actors Guild Awards. So hold off on getting stuck into that Tuesday morning to-do list for just a few more minutes and channel your inner Joan Rivers - we're the 3BM Red Carpet Fashion Police and this is the SAGs edition...

The Good

Lupita Nyong'o in Gucci
She killed it at the globes in red, and this week Nyong'o continued with the monochrome dressing with a jaw-dropping turquoise Gucci gown. Far and away the best dressed of the night, we can't wait to see her Oscars' look...

Jennifer Lawrence in Christian Dior
Thankfully J-Law was back on her A-game at the SAGs. Unsurprisingly the dress was Dior, but unlike her Globes Dior number, this was pure megawatt glam. Particularly loving that she let the dress do the talking and kept the accessories to just a pair of Jennifer Meyer drop earrings - the perfect way to work that awesome new crop.

Amy Adams in Antonio Beradi
Amy aced it at the Globes in plunging, caped amazingness, and she continued her best-dressed streak on Saturday in this architectural royal blue look. Loved it!

Isla Fischer in Bulgari
Isla brought a massive dose of old school glamour to the SAGs. What could be more fifties screen siren than a tumble of red tresses, a slinky, silky Marilyn-esque gown and some serious rocks all topped off with the perfect scarlet lip. This is how you do awards dressing.

Laura Carmichael in Jerome C. Rousseau
We're loving everything (apart from the bangle) about the Downton Abbey star's SAGs look. Great hair, beautiful gown and that shoe peeking out from her asymmetric hem is just delicious.

The Bad

Michelle Dockery in J. Mendel
Sadly Lady Mary didn't look a patch on Lady Edith. This J. Mendel tuxedo dress somehow manages to be dowdy and far too revealing all at once. Dislike.

Ariel Winter in Badgley Mischka
The print's pretty, the fit's great, but look, we're talking about everything but the obvious here aren't we...? Does Ariel have the Mitchell brothers tucked down the front of her dress??

Mariah Carey in Saint Lauren
The dress is too short and a size too small judging by the fact it's ridden up over her hips, the tights are too granny and the gloves… well, what the hell can we say about those gloves?! Just wrong. Plain wrong.

Kerry Washington in Prada
We absolutely adore the embellished top, her make-up's flawless and we love fuchsia on Kerry. But, there's something about baby bumps and crop tops that just jars with us. We love that the Scandal star isn't playing it safe with drapey tunics but this just seems a step too far.

The Trends
And to finish up, a quick canter through the key red carpet trends...

Life is Like a Box of Chocolates
A kaleidoscope of jewel-toned gowns reigned supreme. With pretty much every hue of the rainbow covered, we can't help thinking of a very stylish tin of Quality Street...

Here Comes the Bride
Just add a veil and a bouquet and this little lot would have been good to walk down the aisle.

Hollywood Screen Siren
We were loving the girls who stepped the glam up a notch and seemed to be channeling Lauren Bacall, Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake and co. This is a trend we hope features heavily on the Oscars' carpet.

Back to Black
Hard on the heels of the rainbow bright crew were the ladies in black. Although a couple of the all black looks left us cold, when a black dress is done well, there's not much that can top it (we're talking to you Katrina Bowden although why wouldn't you have swept your hair up to show off that stunning caged section of the gown?!).
