Hello, SAG Awards! Where have you been all of our lives?! Yes, slightly dramatic, but for just another red carpet event where actors pat themselves on the back, this year’s girls were bringing their A-game! So many stunners this year, that we’ll honestly probably forget some of them! Much improved over the last few award seasons. First, let’s name our favorites: the luminous Viola Davis (who took home Best Actress) looked drop-dead gorgeous in a flowing, white strapless Marchesa gown with an embroidered bodice (pictured, top left), and George Clooney’s newest girlfriend and former WWE star (yes, really – that acronym means she was a “professional” wrestler at one point) Stacy Keibler (pictured, top right) was head-to-toe elegance in black lace, also by Marchesa. (We usually do not include award attendees who aren’t actually part of the craft they’re supporting, i.e., Heidi Klum at the Oscars, or Kim Kardashian at… well, any ceremony, but Keibler was just too incredible to leave off the list.) Julie Bowen and Sofia Vergara of Modern Family play stepmother-and-daughter of the same age on the hit comedy, and made one bright and beautiful pair last night. Bowen (pictured, above right) wore a bold purple Grecian number by Temperley London, while Vergara (pictured, above left) sported a pleated magenta gown by, who else? Marchesa! (Hmm… do we sense a pattern here?) Modern Family‘s junior-set was also dressed quite appropriately for their ages – Ariel Winter, 14, looked adorable in a gray Collette Dinnigan dress, and Sarah Hyland, 21, matched her onscreen-mom by also wearing a classy Temperley gown. Without sounding like ageists, it seemed like the night truly belonged to the “seasoned” actresses of Hollywood. Besides Viola Davis (who is a shocking 46, although she doesn’t look a day over 35), the best-dressed of the night were women in Davis’s age-range. Kyra Sedgwick, who is the same age as Davis, was notably the most jaw-dropping attendee in an extremely sexy Emilio Pucci cutout gown (pictured, bottom right). Jane Lynch and Diane Lane looked ravishing in royal blue. 30 Rock costars Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski (pictured together, above) looked sophisticated in black gowns with beaded bodices by Versace and Antonio Berardi, respectively. Octavia Spencer (who won for Best Supporting Actress) wore a very classy lavender-gray Tadashi Shoji chiffon gown (pictured, bottom left). On the flip side, some of the younger attendees really missed the mark. George Clooney’s gorgeous costar in The Descendants, Shailene Woodley, looked a little disheveled in a Hawaiian print L’Wren Scott gown; Busy Phillips was far too casual in a floor-length beach frock that could have been used as a coverup; and Zoe Saldana looked like a modern Barbarella in a shiny white and silver mess from, shockingly, Givenchy. The cast of GLEE was all over the place again. Heather Morris, Jayma Mays and Amber Riley all wore ill-fitting black dresses, Jenna Ushkowitz sported one weird outfit, and Lea Michele was, as ALWAYS, extremely over-the-top. I don’t know how many times we’ve said it… Or how many times Joan Rivers has to say it… She’s ridiculous. We just hope the upcoming Oscars are as sumptuous and splendid as the SAG Awards were!

Be still my heart! That’s one cute shirt! While watching reruns of the hit TV show Modern Family, this editor saw a particularly cute Burberry button-down with a heart pattern! The top was worn by the beautiful Julie Bowen on the 2010 Valentine’s Day episode “My Funky Valentine.” (Which happens to be this editor’s date of birth, and anything pertaining to hearts has always been of interest to me. The Burberry fascination came later when I saw Posh Spice in Teen People with the British brand’s bikini top on.) This shirt was $325 but has been marked down to $113 at Neiman Marcus. If the shirt is too much for you, it comes in adorable accessories – the umbrella and matching bag are lots of fun! A perfect pattern when you’re feeling lovey-dovey!
