Style: SAG Awards Favorites.

For some reason, awards season is really tickling my fancy this time around, and not even only on the red carpet. One of my silly New Year's resolutions was to actually watch the ceremonies and be less clueless about celebrity life. (Because I may or may not be somewhat interested in celebrity PR as a future career. Don't judge. We're all friends here!).
I had never seen the Screen Actors Guild awards before, so the viewing experience was something new for me. I thought the actor pride they showed was really humanizing- we tend to look at celebrities as superficial and puppet-like, but watching Uzo Aduba and Patricia Arquette become so emotional at the recognition of their hard work made them so relatable as humans. 
From a fashion perspective, the red carpet did not disappoint. Although I did not personally identify with their outfits, the cast of Orange is the New Black slayed in terms of risks and color/texture usage. And, let's be honest, they basically slayed the entire awards ceremony.

On my part, here are my favorite looks of the night (in no particular order), with a wee bit of commentary, as per usual!
Maria Menounos is just a clean and crisp Greek goddess and I love it. She always chooses to be simple on the red carpet, and it always works in her favor.
Felicity Jones is a wonderful human being and actress. If you haven't seen Like Crazy or Breathe In (both in which she is stunning and a bit insane), you better get on that. Her usual gown choices tend to be classical- a little on the elderly side, even. But this dress is classic and modern and ladylike and everything I would ever imagine Felicity to be in real life.
I'm too invested in monochrome looks to fully appreciate printed gowns on the red carpet, but Lupita Nyong'o always picks the most special, princess-worthy looks and accentuates them with impeccable hair and makeup choices. This one doesn't disappoint. 
Claire Danes is one of the most gorgeous people on this planet to me. I swear, this woman never shows signs of aging. Nope, she's still Juliet! She's also one of the people who always makes interesting fashion choices with surprise elements (THE BELT!!! AHH!!!). And that's not even the reason I'm absolutely in love with this look! Let's all just take a moment to appreciate Queen Claire and her ability to make her complexion/hair color absolutely GLOW through her color choices.
Sarah Hyland looked like a stunning princess. I loved this dress' mix of elegant and sexy and found it to be really on point for someone in her 20s. The deep cut of the dress is also very tastefully done, while still maintaining that sex appeal factor. That's a pretty important point, given the look of cleavage conscious dresses today (whaddup Jen's Globes!).
Lastly, I'm not even sure what Emma Stone is wearing, but she's Emma Stone and her look is just on point and unique every single time and I absolutely love it! The classic colors and red lips never fail me. Teach me your ways, Emma! 
AND HAI MATT MCGORRY YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL MAN AND YOU'RE ON BOTH MY FAVORITE SHOWS AND YOU ARE THE ONLY CELEBRITY WHO I RELIGIOUSLY FOLLOW ON SOCIAL MEDIA BECAUSE YOU ARE GORGEOUS AND TALENTED AND PERFECT. HI!!! 

Sorry, I really couldn't contain myself on that one! Thank you so much for stopping by!
