Best-dressed at the Sag Awards 2014

Although my list for worst dressed at the Sag Awards far exceeds my list for best dressed I’m going to keep this post on the positive tip and disclose only my favs!!! On the bright side – at least things can only get better!!!

Amy Adams


Amy Adams is the epitome of old Hollywood glam yet somehow also looks incredibly modern in this cobalt blue dress by Antonio Beradi.  Amy’s asymmetrical frock is flawlessly tailored extenuating her svelte figure.  Styled to perfection with a retro bob, tangerine lips and beautiful sapphire and emerald earrings Amy nails her red carpet look from head to toe!!!

Isla Fisher


They say happy girls are the prettiest and now we can totally see just how HAPPY motherhood and marriage has made Isla Fisher!  I love how the white silk Oscar de la Renta dress compliments her skin tone.  Styled with Bvlgari diamonds and emeralds, a Ferragamo clutch, and deep red lips Isla’s look is simply perfect!  Although I feel like I could dedicate an entire post to Isla Fischer’s hair, for the sake of time, I’ll just go with ridiculously gorgeous (think Pantene commercial in 3D)!!  Just sayin-for my hair to even remotely look like this would require an hour in a salon and, once I stepped out into the Miami humidity (or gave my kids a bath) I’d be back to square one!

Rocsi Diaz


Rocsi Diaz gives a whole new meaning to the LBD (little black dress) making this sleek and sexy gown by Victoria Becham anything but simple.  The dress is tailored to perfection accentuating Rocsi’s ASSets (pun intended) throw in a sexy cutout and bra-let silhouette and you got yourself an over-the-top glam look!  Adding to this chic ensemble Rocsi keeps it fresh with a major hot pink clutch, a low ponytail, and beautiful  diamond chandelier earrings and bangle!

Renee Berg


I’m obsessed with red and obsessed with lace put them together and you get Renee Berg’s red lace frock by fellow Australian designer, Steven Khall.  The color couldn’t be more perfect against Rene’s skin tone.  What I love the most about this look? How it was styled of course!!!  I love the contrast of this beyond glam gown with understated jewels, neutral makeup and fuss-free sleek locks. Styled any other way this dress has the potential to be overdone (I’m thinking an up-do with matching scarlet lipstick) but Rene’s simplicity makes it look totally youthful, effortless and chic.
