SAG Awards 2010 - my picks for best dressed

Well, I'm a little late on this post, but hey, it's been a week chock full of Couture, sick toddler and hubby working 15 hour days.  I'm spread thin.  So here are the highlights that I've seen online (I'm sure there are more that I would have liked, but I can't find pictures of everyone) so this is the best dressed from what I've seen.  Did that make any sense?  Probably not, but here they are:

Diane Kruger in Jason Wu - the color is divine (how great would this color be on a redhead?  Awesome, but maybe I'm biased)

Christina Applegate in Roberto Cavalli

Kate Hudson in Emilio Pucci

Sandra Bullock in Alexander McQueen - I LOVE the blue beading, she looks amazing

Christina Hendricks in Carolina Herrera

Nicole Kidman in Oscar de la Renta - so happy she's back to red hair, that blonde was washing her out and making her look cold, the red seems more relaxed.  But again, maybe just biased :o)

Givenchy - Couture Spring 2010

This collection had a 70's vibe, dark eyes and red lips (almost sinister) makeup.  The gowns were beautiful, the color palette stuck with black and white with some neutrals, cobalt and navy blues, emerald green and purple.  Here are my picks (that last dress - bottom right - is AMAZING):

Chanel - Couture Spring 2010 - details

What fascinates me about the Haute Couture is the painstaking attention to detail and construction that makes these clothes so extraordinary (and expensive).  So I like to look at the details (well, look at pictures of the details, 'cause that's as close as I'm getting for now).  I like how something can look so simple from far away, but when you really get close and start inspecting, you may find the most technical construction or complicated detail.  That's what's exciting to me.  So here are some detail shots from Chanel that I felt embodied this:

Armani Prive - Spring 2010 Couture

The theme for this collection was the moon (and I mean quite literally, there were crescent moons everywhere, which was kind of cheesy when you see one moon accessory after another, too distracting from the actual clothes - becomes sort of a "where's Waldo" issue, "where's the moon?").  He probably could have edited some outfits out and you wouldn't have missed them, but overall it was quite beautiful.  My faves:

Chanel - Couture Spring 2010

For this collection, Karl Lagerfeld decided to do a strickly pastel/silver palette, there was no black, navy or gold (not even a button) in sight. Lots of shorts, lots of sparkle (and some pretty unflattering shiny white tights). But hey, it's still Chanel Couture and overall it was beautiful. Here's what caught my eye:

Emilio Pucci Pre-Fall 2010

Too much black and more prints please - that's what I thought looking at this collection.  It's not that it's a bad collection, it's not, I just want it more "Pucci-fied".  I always want to see prints when looking at a Pucci collection.  Come on people, work with me here...
