Happy Monday! Hope all your weekends were fabulous ;)
Awards show season is still very much in swing and a few (*sigh*) of our favorites were spotted at the celebrations and in their regular weekend round-a-bouts. Let’s take a look…
There she is…SAG Award winner for Best Actress, Viola Davis! I had actually changed the channel before her win, but in pics she looks great in a Marchesa dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and a Judith Lieber clutch. Seriously, her mocha skin against the cream dress? Perfection!
I would have skipped the gold shadow or the under eye concealer as both together seem a bit much on camera (though I bet in person it looked lovely–darn cameras and their flash ruining good things). Her hair is LAYED though.
Octavia Spencer took home the SAG award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as sassy maid “Minnie Jackson” in “The Help”. Octavia looked absolutely stunning in this regal updo and glowing cheeks. Her acceptance speech about being able to give so many of our mothers, grandmothers, and great grandmothers a voice was quite touching (and made me change my mind slightly about being a little salty that Black women are receiving critical acclaim for roles as maids…in 2012).
She rocked this silver Tadashi gown! Perfect silhouette and the detailing is top notch without being showy. Brava!
Shaun Robinson looked great in this form-fitting fuchsia gown, but the hair kind of makes the whole look appear prom-ish.
Zoe Saldana sauntered down the red carpet in a Givenchy Haute Couture dress. I don’t know…I don’t hate it, but it sure does look like she’s wearing a wife beater underneath the bodice. A corset would have done both this look and Zoe more justice. I do love the dark nails paired with a white dress.
Typical Zoe, but she knows what works for her and I love it ;)
I adore Sofia Vergara in this sweetheart neckline hot pink Marchesa gown. The dress shows off all of her awesome curves without being too revealing and the color just sizzles. HOT!
My girl Regina King looked so good in this Alberta Ferretti lilac dress. This color was made for her skin tone and the delicate ruffles are a great choice for her toned body. HOT!!!!
One of my favorite looks of the evening was Naya Rivera in this sequined Naeem Khan dress with a plunging neckline. There’s this suspense of “my goodness she looks hawt!” and “OMG is she gonna spill out???” about this dress. It’s so glamorous, so sexy, and so age-appropriate. HOT!
Simple hair and makeup complement the look.
Naya’s “Glee” co-star Amber Riley was also in attendance…
…showing that we can’t win them all. *sigh* I said JUST last week that Amber’s glam squad always has her dipped, but this pink sponge roller Grandma Myrtle hair is killing me softly. I can’t even front though because I had this SAME hairstyle in a first grade class picture…but that was 1987. Who did you shade, Amber? Apologize at once!
Grrr…can’t even say she made up for it with the dress. I’m always co-signing on anything with peplum on it, but what’s with the gigantic bow? Seriously Amber, you need to make amends with whoever it is you pissed off.
Then in non-awards show sightings…
Sherri Shepherd was spotted at Maksim Chmerkovskiy‘s Ballroom Birthday Bash in a cute animal print (look closely) lace halter dress. I love it! Normally ankle strap shoes worn with a midi dress like this can really shorten and widen the figure, but it all works on Sherri here. Go ‘head, girl.
Seriously, I want the Rachel Roy leopard trench dress Gabrielle Union wore to a charity event for Planned Parenthood (except in a V-neck version) ASAP. It’s practically perfect with this studded leather belt and mandarin collar. Great pairing with the black tights and suede pumps. Her hair is perfectly tousled and the chunky golden brown highlights are it. Go, Gabby! HOT!
Lala Anthony was spotted shopping it up in West Hollywood. She looks too cute in her army green jacket, slim cut jeans, and mid-length Chanel biker boots. She accessorized the look well with her bright pink gloss, half-up/half-down hair ‘do, and aviator sunglasses. What a way to look effortlessly stylish. I wonder if she’s wearing one of the lip glosses from her new makeup line…
And finally Kelly Rowland hit up a Barcadi event in Berlin in a navy blue Herve Leger dress. She no doubt looks hot in bodycon dresses quite like this, but I feel this particular style dress has been overdone and the underwhelming shoe choice doesn’t help it either.
But we know the beauty will almost always turn it with great hair and makeup! The camera’s flash is distorting it a bit, but I can still see a well-executed neutral yet glamorous makeup look. Curly hair also suits the singer very well.
That wraps it up! Which look is your favorite this week?
