By now you've heard, fashion darling Diane Kruger ruled the red carpet for a second weekend in a row at Saturday's SAG Awards. She looked stunning in an off-the-shoulder Jason Wu creation that was buttery and fluttery...and actually not too different in silhouette from her Christian Lacroix stunner at last week's Golden Globes. It appears the actress, who doesn't work with a stylist, can do no wrong when it comes to award show glamour.
Newcomer Lea Michele is more hit or miss in the style department but she also knocked it out of the park at the SAG awards. After showing up at last week's Golden Globes in a ginormous Donna Martin-goes-to-prom ball gown, the Glee phenom wowed in a simpler, more youthful Catherine Malandrino column. While picking up her first SAG win for Best Comedy Ensemble, she managed to look sleek and sophisticated yet romantic and soft - never an easy feat with the eyes of the world on you.
The Best Dressed
But the night's most welcome surprises played it a little less safe. Anna Paquin and Sandra Bullock both wore British bad boy Alexander McQueen. Surprising because neither actress is particularly known for having an edgy personal style. And yet both looked chic and appropriate and now.
With uber stylish and daring fans like Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Gwen Stefani, the fashion forward McQueen tends to be a staple at music award shows where performers want to stand out rather than film/television ones where actresses don't want to rock the sartorial boat. However, both actresses proved that McQueen doesn't just make costumes. He also makes exquisite, wearable clothes for women who are confident and not afraid to make a statement.
The Welcome Suprises
Spring 2010 has been one of McQueen's most critically acclaimed seasons to date. The looks are avant garde but elegant, fiercely unique and monstrously futuristic. The slideshow features some fantastical inspiration from the McQueen runway but to grasp the wearability of his clothes visit the designer's Melrose store. Warning: you may walk out with a whole new appreciation for snakes.
