2011 Screen Actors Guild Awards - Hits & Misses

Did you catch the SAG awards? Overall, it was a bit underwhelming, but there were still some pretty outstanding dresses on the red carpet. Here are my hits and misses.

- Natalie Portman: Fabulous makeup, but the flat hair just takes away from the entire look.

- Angie Harmon: Again, it's the hair that ruins the look. Whoever coloured her hair clearly didn't choose the right shade. Her roots really stick out like a sore thumb.

- Paz de la Huerta: Matching your makeup to your clothing is hardly new, nor is it always a hit. This particular shade doesn't do her any justice and she could've used some liner on the upper lash line.

- Eva Longoria: Oh, Eva. Please get your makeup artist to blend your foundation better. 

- Naya Rivera: Suffering from the Eva Longoria curse. Her foundation is much too light and her hair looks like a mess. Perhaps she was going for a tousled look, but I feel she missed the mark.

- Mariska Hargitay: Her skin looks absolutely beautiful! I love the mauvey lipstick, as well.

- January Jones: This is what Natalie Portman's hair could have been. 
Love the old Hollywood vibe, it definitely suits her well.

- Jane Lynch: Proves shimmery eyeshadow isn't just for younger women. 
I also love her false lashes, they're so gorgeous and fluttery.

- Christina Hendricks: Absolutely gorgeous smoky eye! Her hair looks a bit darker than last I saw her, which was at the Golden Globe awards. I have to say, I prefer this auburn shade more.

- Jennifer Lawrence: Love the winged out eyeshadow! A bit of a risk since this look would be more suited for the likes of the MTV awards, but she pulls them off well.

- Dianna Agron: She doesn't typically wear such heavy eye makeup, so I was a bit taken aback when I first saw the photo. But the more I looked at it, the more I loved it. Choosing a soft brown / taupe 
eyeshadow is a good way to soften the look a tad.

- Mila Kunis: Mila's makeup is always on point! I love the navy eyeliner, it defines her eyes beautifully but without the harshness of a black eyeliner. 

- Amber Riley: Straight, glossy hair, blunt bangs and magenta lips... 
This was definitely my favourite beauty look of the night!

- Dianna Agron: This Chanel dress is lovely and romantic, a look Dianna Agron always goes for on the red carpet. However, I feel it was a bit ill fitting for her. This dress would look better on someone curvier, I think.

- Christina Hendricks: The opposite situation from Dianna. Actually, if they had swapped dresses, it might've worked better. This L'Wren Scott dress, while gorgeous, does nothing for Christina's lovely curves.

- Nicole Kidman: Again, I don't feel like this Nina Ricci dress is doing anything for Nicole's body. It doesn't give her any shape and and the necklace makes the neckline much too busy.

- Kate Mara: This Hervé Leger dress is beautiful and it fits Kate wonderfully. However, I think that the colour washes her out too much and that headband is just awful. Plus, she looks completely uncomfortable.

- Naya Rivera: This Aurelio Costarella dress is a bit too lingerie for me. 

- Jenna Fischer: Love the colour, but the design and fit makes her look too frumpy.

- Jayma Mays: Love this Jenny Packham dress. The vintage vibe, the peach / blush shade, the shoulder detailing 
are all beautiful.

- Hailee Steinfeld: This Prada dress is gorgeous, a lot of fun, and totally age appropriate for 14-year-old Hailee.

- Jenna Ushkowitz: This Badgley Mischka beauty looks fantastic on Jenna! The nude shade compliments her slight tan, love the gathering on the bust, and ruffles on the skirt create just enough detailing 
to make the dress more interesting.

- Eva Longoria: Eva was really channeling the Grecian goddesses in this beautiful Georges Hobeika dress. I've always been a fan of this style.

- Rosario Dawson: She really brought some sunshine to the red carpet. This pale yellow dress by J. Mendel is absolutely gorgeous and was a breath of fresh air on Sunday.

- Natalie Portman: Showing the world you that pregnant women can still be glamorous in this icey white Azzaro dress. I can't wait to see what else she'll be wearing for the rest of the awards season.

- Sofia Vergara: How impossibly tiny is this woman's waist? I can't even... I absolutely love the gorgeous blue shade of this Roberto Cavalli dress.

- Annette Bening: I cannot believe she's 52 years old. Her body is out of this world! Love the gold shade, love the draping, and love the neckline.

- Tina Fey: I don't recall ever seeing Tina Fey in red, but I'm loving this! The flowery detailing on this Oscar de la Renta dress is just beautiful.

- Lea Michele: This Oscar de la Renta dress is just perfect. It fits Lea's petite frame beautifully and thin, gold belt compliments the silvery-white dress wonderfully.

- Amber Riley: Helloooo glamour! Amber Riley's really stepped up her fashion game and this Anne Barge dress does her fabulousness justice. One shoulder, sweetheart neckline, flowery detailing on the skirt = absolutely gorgeous. The ruching on the bodice and the mermaid silhouette really compliments her curvacious frame.

- Heather Morris: Heather, like Amber, is really wowing me on the red carpet lately. This nude Romona Keveza dress has such a gorgeous bodice. I see some sequins and feathers, among other things. Always a plus in my book!

- Hilary Swank: First, let us all admire Hilary's amazing arms... Anyway, nude was big at the Golden Globes and as you can see, it's still well represented at the SAG awards. This Versace dress is has some gorgeous details - ruching, layering, and the neckline is fab!

- Claire Danes: The print on this lovely Louis Vuitton dress is so gorgeous. Love the addition of the belt as well.

- Mila Kunis: Another belted, printed dress; this time by Alexander McQueen. 
The fiery red colour is absolutely fierce.

- January Jones: This Carolina Herrera dress is just stunning. The black and gold lace combo is so high-glamour. 
I love it!

- Jennifer Lawrence: Hot pink! Love, love, love the colour! And the strap action going on around the shoulders are lovely. Love the black bow as well. Oscar de la Renta did well on this red carpet!

- Julia Stiles: *sigh.* This Monique Lhuillier dress just inspired nothing but longing sighs. The ombre effect is just so beautiful! It's a simple design, but the fabric definitely brings the house down! 
My absolute favourite of the night, for sure.

Any favourites from the SAG awards?
