SAG Jewelry Hits and Misses


The 2010 Screen Actors Guild Awards shined a light on some unique red carpet jewelry choices for a change – some stunning, some, well, notsomuch.

The winners in my book were Diane Kruger (see my earlier post for more), Kate Hudson in over $1 million of Cartier diamonds

Marion Cotillard in over $1 million of Chopard in her hair alone (!), Christina Hendricks in another teardrop triumph (by Irit), and a glowing Christina Applegate in Lorraine Schwartz diamonds – including this unique diamond hair piece. Love it.

I’m on the fence about Meryl – like the emeralds and the Balenciaga print but am not sure it was appropriate for the occasion. I’m also not sure about Sandra Bullock’s Alexander McQueen choice: is it cool or a little too ‘Golden Girls go to the buffet’? Same with Drew Barrymore’s navy get up, simple gold earrings and bedhead hair. Something’s just off here.

Speaking of off – Joan Allen? Bless your heart, but what on EARTH were you thinking with this necklace choice? The former queen of red carpet class just jumped the shark with this ensemble – quite possibly the worst jewelry look I have covered to date. Yikes.

The disappointment continued with Vera Farmiga’s unfortunate gown choice coupled with a powder blue eyeshadow look I haven’t seen since the pre-teens wore it in the 80s.

And the always reliably tacky Patricia Arquette didn’t disappoint with this ‘Mae West meets Priscilla Queen of the Desert’ interpretation. ALL Sequins? WITH gold chandeliers? Really?

As usual, I MUST know what you hounds think, so weigh in. And if the spirit moves you, check out the Jewelry.com Fashion News for more SAG jewelry buzz and their Facebook Page for a complete look at the SAG divas on display.

Diane Kruger’s Tangerine Dream

SAG Awards jewelry is still dancing in my head, but before I get to my overall impressions (will post tomorrow), can I just take a moment to applaud Diane Kruger for once again killing it on the red carpet?

Taking a cue from Michelle Obama’s penchant for young designer Jason Wu, Kruger stunned the crowd with a Wu (is it mustard-yellow, burnt-sienna, rustic-orange?) off-the shoulder gown accessorized with Harry Winston gold and ruby drop earrings and a series of ruby and diamond bracelets and bangles.

It’s the perfect mix of ‘make an impression’ meets ‘taste’ in my book. Do you guys agree? Weigh in! And stay tuned for more SAG snark – including what could possibly be the worst necklace I have ever seen on display during Awards Season.
