SAG Awards’ Best Dressed Boomers
The Screen Actors Guild Awards might not have the prestige or global recognition of the Oscars or the Golden Globes, but that did not stop nominees from taking the sartorial wattage up a notch or two for last night’s telecast.
True, there were no over-the-top looks like billowing ball gowns or outfits that dripped with mega jewels or – worse – left viewers wincing. Perhaps the stars are saving the big-moment attire for the upcoming Academy Awards.
What did made it down the red carpet was tasteful and mostly formal. Since this is the SAG Awards, one would have thought this would be the perfect opportunity for some of the stars to take a risk and try something adventurous, given the lower profile of the event, but there were few in the crowd that tried that tactic.
Kudos to Julia Roberts – never one known to be a fashion risk-taker – for opting for a le smoking one-piece jumpsuit by Givenchy.
And thank heavens or the 81-year-old Joan Collins for bringing some high-octane Dynasty glam, complete with big hair and elbow-length gloves.
But the award for stunning makeover must go to British actress Phyllis Logan, 59, better known as Mrs. Hughes, the housekeeper on Downton Abbey, who was practically unrecognizable in a slinky yet elegant gown.
