Spring fever was the fashion theme of Saturday night’s 2016 SAG Awards. Hollywood actresses walked the red carpet in vibrant pinks, greens and blues that hinted at the spring season ahead.
Have you ever seen the film Groundhog Day with Bill Murray? His character in the film has to live the same day over and over again. That’s what Hollywood awards season has felt like for quite a few years now. The performers who win the major film acting awards at the Golden Globes usually go on to win the SAG Awards and then the Oscars.
It isn’t much of a horse race as we’ll probably watch the SAG and Golden Globes winners walk up to the podium and accept the Academy Awards. Based on the awards show winners so far, I can predict with confidence that it will be Leo DiCaprio and Brie Larson as Best Actor and Best Actress at the 2016 Oscars.
If I’m right, you can buy me some champagne and chocolates (deal?)
At least we can look at all the amazing red carpet fashions throughout the awards season. Here are my picks for best dressed at the 2016 SAG Awards.
SAG Awards 2016 Fashion: Best Red Carpet Dresses
Brie Larson in a powder blue Atelier Versace gown is my BEST DRESSED of the night!

Helen Mirren and Diane Lane (on the right) showed classic Hollywood style in silver and blue.
Didn’t you just love Maisie Williams in her royal blue Ermanno Scervino dress? What a frock!

My SAG Awards 2016 Best Dressed List also includes:
Julianne Moore in a stunning citron green Givenchy Haute Couture gown. There was criticism about the fit of this gown but with her red hair the green color is so striking! Julianne knows how to make a statement on the red carpet and her outfit just spoke to me, calling to mind the coming of spring…
Carol Burnett and Uzo Aduba also looked lovely in green, as did Kate Winslet, Eva Longoria and Marisa Tomei.

The color pink popped up on stars like Nicole Kidman in Gucci, Sofia Vergara wearing Vera Wang and Emilia Clarke in Dior.

Let’s not forget these ladies in red! I actually said WOW! when I saw Tina Fey…
What did you think about Susan Sarandon at the SAG Awards? She chose to wear a black bra with a white jacket, and the internet went crazy with what amounted to shaming.
We applaud @susansarandon for stealing the show at the SAG awards this past weekend. She is always proving that when it comes to being sexy, age simply isnt a factor! #femalesforward #susansarandon #sexyateveryage #womancrush #everyday #sagawards #inspiration

Some were angry she wore such a revealing outfit to give the “In Memoriam” segment, others were just nasty and said at her age she should “cover up.”
I thought she looked great—joyful and confident. Why it irks some people that an older woman would flaunt her sensuality and great body is beyond me. The message here is that true beauty is ageless, timeless. Some women keep getting better with age like fine wine.
I think a woman of a certain age who is very sexy and authentic has wisdom, mystery and grace. She becomes a force of nature with great personal power, and that is threatening to a whole lot of people, then the shaming begins.
I hope Ms. Sarandon keeps on dancing to her own drummer and wearing whatever she likes.
That’s just my two cents on the unfortunate Bra-gate and the Twitterverse. Rock on Susan!
