Because of Them…

This month’s posts have taken a different direction and are geared towards highlighting important issues during Women’s History Month. This week I decided to shine the spotlight on some wonderful women I know who are making history in their own right.

But none of this would be possible without the actions of the history makers who came before.

2016 SAG Awards

Last night the Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists honored the last year’s most outstanding performances in film and prime time television at the 22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, California.

Unlike the Academy Awards, the SAG Awards was an all-inclusive affair leaving no one out.

A bit of a quick history lesson, the SAG Awards was the first televised awards show to acknowledge the work of union members and the first to present awards to motion picture casts and television ensembles. And as one of the top industry honors presented to actors, only the SAG Awards are selected entirely by performers’ peers – with two nominating panels — one for television and one for film — each composed of 2,200 randomly selected union members from across the United States – in SAG-AFTRA. Hence there were no *cough*cough* (diversity issues).LOL.

 But before we get into all the highlights from last night’s festivities, here are some of the hottest looks from the red carpet.

Classic Redsanna-farris-naeem-khan-katie-lowes-tina-fey-prabal-gurung-melissa-rauch-romona-keveza-stephanie-drake

Ladies like Anna Faris in Naeem Khan, Tina Fey in Prabal Gurung, Melissa Rauch in Romona Keveza, Katie Lowes and Stephanie Drake brightened the evening with stunning shades of red. No blending in either with fabrication and cut-outs to up the wow factor on these gorgeous stunners.

Rich Plums

Orange is the New Black‘s (Netflix) Laverne Cox served nothing but glamour in a Prabal Gurung cutout gown and the elegance of the rich wine tones were echoed by fellow ladies of the evening, Neha Kapur, wife of The Big Bang Theory‘s Kunal Nayyar; and Joanne Froggart.

Metallic Touches

Stunning gowns in every shade and fabric added much needed character to the typical LBDs and washes of white. Lady of the night Viola David wowed in Zac Posen, actress Tracey Lysette followed suit with a long-sleeved gown with a killer split. Also gracing the red carpet were sisters Kate and Rooney Mara, both in Valentino, Helen Mirren in Jenny Packham seen here with Michael Shannon, Sarah Silverman in a shimmering silver Vivienne Westwood fishtail gown and Carrie Brownstein of Transparent (Netflix) in Akris.

 

Pops of Magenta

Added personality to the evening as seen on Diane Guerrero, Sofia Vergara in VeraWang with hubby Joe Manganiello, and Game of Thrones’ (HBO), Emilia Clark in Dior Haute Couture.

Marigold Abound

hannah-murray-lily-rabe-lela-rose-sola-bamis

Brought the sunshine and and early spring fever with amazing pieces like the Lela Rose gown worn by Lily Rabe. I could not keep my eyes of Hannah Murray and Sola Bamis either.

Shades of Blue

brie-larson-atelier-versace-gwendoline-christie-january-jones-molly-parker-paolo-sareno-maisie-williams-naomi-watts-burberry-sarah-hyland-j-mendel

From Brie Larson’s unique masterpiece from Atelier Versace, and Briane of Gwendoline Christie’s powder blue to Maisie Williams Cobalt gown, Naomi Watts’ Burberry lace sheet and Sarah Hyland’s J. Mendel piece I could not help but be spell bound by the many shades of blue – leaving me anything but.

Glitz and Embellishmentsalici-vikander-louis-vuitton-eva-longoria-julien-macdonald-hannah-bagshawe-eddie-redmayne-dior-homme-nicole-kidman-gucci-julianne-moore-givenchy-couture

And for what was lacking in some regard for those who unfortunately made some of the fashion blogosphere’s worst dressed lists – there were these pieces that left nothing lacking – well maybe- Nicole Kidman’s Gucci gown which left me a bit underwhelmed. However, Alicia Vikander looked amazing in her sequined Louis Vuitton, Eva Longoria left little to the imagination in Julien MacDonald, glowing mommy to be Hannah Bagshawe styled her growing bump flawlessly while joining hubby Eddie Redmayne in Dior Homme and Julianne Moore was regal in Givenchy Couture.

Touches of Pastel

sophia-mcshera-jon-hamm-soairse-ronan-michael-kors-christina-ricci-christopher-kane-priyanka-chopra-monique-lhuillier

Girly pastels in a simple, delicate cuts and fabrics were amazing, from Soairse Ronan’s Michael Kors sheath, seen alongside Jon Hamm, Christina Ricci’s Christopher Kane pleated lace and chiffon masterpiece to Sophia McShera’s simple caped gown. Priyanka Chopra normally does not disappoint however this gown did nothing to compliment her gorgeous complexion.

 

Splashes of Whiteamanda-peet-narciso-rodriguez-amy-landecker-SAFiYAA-bradley-whittford-carice-von-houton-dascha-polanco-laura=preporn-carmen-marc-valco-julianna-margiullies-berardi

Mixing up the usual sea of colors and traditional reds and black were a few beauties in masterfully crafted ivory and white gowns. Take Amanda Peet in Narciso Rodriguez or Amy Landecker in SAFiYAA, seen here with Bradley Whitford, Laura Preporn in Carmen Marc Valcvo, alongside Dascha Polanco or Julianna Margiullies in Berardi – just stunning. I wish I knew the designer of Extra‘s Charissa Thompson’s gown because it.is. SPECTACULAR!

Kristen Wiig broke the mold of typical gowns by opting for an amazing Roland Mouret jumpsuit that left me speechless. Paired with the simple accessories and makeup, I was taken by the entire look. Rachel McAdams in black lace Elie Saab was everything, and Ellie Kemper in Peter Pilotto was truly refreshing.

Jewel Tones

Uzo Aduba dazzled in sequined emerald Zac Posen, while Kate Winslet in Giorgio Armani, Carol Burnett in Bob Mackie and Marisa Tomei in Zuhair Murad Couture were breath taking.

Weekly Rewind

     This past week has zoomed by and it’s already mid week-again. I apologize again for the late weekly rewinds but it’s just been super hectic. So let’s just get right on in.

Tv

     American Odyssey gets the boot after struggling to gain or maintain traction, the show which was already on the shortlist to be shelved has finally been nixed. Unable to gain the right momentum, NBC has decided to end the season. No word yet on if there will be a mid season replacement or any changes to the line up.

chasing-life-abc-family1

     Chasing Life, an ABC Family original is set to return for it’s second season this month and one can only anticipate the drama and twists this season will hold for young April.

E Pluribus Unum

     I know I usually focus my monthly recognition on the multiple Health Awareness initiatives but one of this month’s initiatives rings home for me so I wanted to something a little different.

  The month of June is dedicated in part to Caribbean American Heritage. This year marks the 10th year running that the month has been dedicate to recognizing Caribbean American culture. Although as a people we differ in cultural and linguistic elements, we are united in the fact that we are all children of the diaspora with roots firmly planted in the history of the archipelago.
