Red Carpet Reviews: SAG Awards Fashion Critique from UK Stylist Michaela Jedinak Part #7

This is part 7 of the Red Carpet Reviews of the SAG Fashions from last Sunday! Michaela Jedanik, stylist extraordinaire. Considering the comments I have received, you will see more from Michaela and if I can swing the technical aspects perhaps some live videos. So stay tuned.
Glenn Close

Colour: This colour looks fab on her and gives her a very in the moment sophisticated feel to it.

Shape:
Half of it works- half of it doesn’t. The embroidery around her décolleté line is pretty but not prominent/big enough to balance with the wrap around her waist and to cope with the lower half of the dress. It makes her not only look unbalanced but also makes her décolleté line look petite in comparison with the rest of her body. Also this type of shape and fabric is unfortunately very unforgiving and though Glenn Close has a fit figure she still has her tummy “shinning” through the dress.
Style: Her hair and accessories underline the dress perfectly and gives a flair of effortless elegance. Unfortunately there is something missing to complete the look like bracelet, handbag…man on the arm?
Overall Rating:*** Three Stars
Holly Hunter

Colour: It works for her colouring because it is softened by the belt.
Shape: Well, speaking of shape- did someone forget to put the finishing touch here? The draping detail around her bosom works nicely and adds a bit of curves in this dead straight not fitted outfit for her. Though the belt gives her somewhat of a waist on her column body shape but it not big enough to give her a waist and is not tied in a bow big enough to make it to a feature and give her enough of a curvy shape. Also, the length of her dress in the front is tucking in- a sign that the dress is too long for her.
Style: She has long face, so the worst you can do is keeping it straight when combining with such a shapeless dress for her. She should be wearing it with more waves, or curls or pull it softly back in order to make her appearance rounder. Holly has a slim, delicate frame and she needs to add more glam, drama and personality to her look otherwise she just looks like a wallflower on the red carpet.

Overall rating:**
Two Stars


Jamie Lyn Sigler

Colour: Colour combination works here because the white top is softened by her skin colour and the deeper shade of blue is flattering a darker colouring.
Shape: The outfit complements her toned figure and gives her beautiful proportions. It really shows off her shoulders and waist in the best light.
Style: It looks as if she put her shirt over her bathing suit or working out gear. The skirt is great in colour, shape and style for her- but this top doesn’t go with it in look and is definitely not appropriate to wear it for this event.
Overall Rating:** Two Stars

Javier Bardem

Colour: It works for him because he breaks the colour up by keeping his shirt open.
Shape: Here is a man who knows it all. His suit is fitted and the 3 buttons give him a great waist without appearing too long by breaking it with the pockets around his waistline. The length and the crease of his trousers are perfect.
Style: He is very skilfully dressed. The shiny fabric reflects the formality of the event, but his laid back style of his white shirt reflects the time of the day and LA style. His look is softened and relaxed by skipping the tie, wearing his shirt open and having his white sleeves shining through the bottom of his sleeves. But the finishing note is his confident, reassured pose in line with his shiny shoes.
Overall rating:****** Six Stars (stellar!)
