Red Carpet Conversations continues on the road to Oscar night. The Critics Choice Awards fashions were like something out of easter but the Globes stepped it up with all the colors of the rainbow. Now we've reached the Screen Actors Guild Awards and Pajiba's Joanna has returned!
Joanna: wooo hoooo fashion
Nathaniel: Welcome back Joanna. So how is awards season treating you? You were sick yesterday when we were supposed to talk. Was it red carpet overload?
Joanna: There's only so many ruffles one girl can take.
Nathaniel: So we start on a sun-drenched field.
It was sunny at the SAGs and I'm not just talking about Jean Dujardin's disposition. Look at all the solar rays powering this first group.
Joanna: I love love love love love the sparkles on Jennifer Carpenter. Also, the length. It's not something you can wear to the Oscars, but is delightfully SAG worthy.
Nathaniel: I think the dress is great but maybe not on her. There's something about the lines on the side (gorgeous) that resemble a jutting rib cage. So skinny that one. But I included her as a thank you for being the only good thing about Dexter anymore (done with that show)
Joanna: Oh, yes, our Deb is in need of a sandwich or two. That's for sure. Speaking of curves, I'm not usually a fan of frou-frou, but that purple number looks great on Regina King. She looks very dishy. Not quite Viola territory, but close.
Nathaniel: She is SAG's Social Media Ambassador so I want to click "like" on this.
Joanna: Is she? If I were an ambassador I would demand a sash. A REALLY fancy sash with Twitter birds on it.
Nathaniel: That's over capacity fo the red carpet.
Joanna: Speaking of accessories. I am not a fan of whatever it is Kristen Wiig has on her neck. A choker? From Wet Seal? It's competing with the neckline of her dress.
Nathaniel: I can see that but independently I would digg it. I like that she doesn't try to soften her angularity much on the red carpet. She's got a bit of a dark side, yes?
Joanna: Are you saying you think she has handcuffs in that bag?
Nathaniel: Shhhhh. No one must know.
Joanna: Ugh, her date is so lucky. Can we talk about Gretchen Mol who looks like the fanciest lady on the USS Enterprise?
Nathaniel: Hee. I keep wanting not to like it but I totally do. Which is sort of how I have always reacted to Gretchen Mol. No one remembers this but Vanity Fair was trying to make her happen for the longest and I was like "does Conde Nast have stock in her career?" so I was suspicious but i almost always like her in things.
Whenever I see Diane Lane I think "movie star without the movies"
Joanna: Mol's fancy space collar looks itchy. Oh I remember her and "Vanity Fair"! I always felt like Weinstein had his sticky fingers all over that situation. But, speaking of Real Genuine Movie Stars, Angelina Jolie was back in her Cruella style. All slinky and drapey and eeeeeevil.
