Mary J. Blige in Jean Louis Sabaj at the SAG Awards: is it weird to love this?

The 24th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards

Last year at the SAG Awards, Nicole Kidman rolled up with some parrots. What is it about the SAGs that makes women want to dress like birds? I don’t know. But I do know that Mary J. Blige wore the best bird-themed gown in SAG history! Mary’s awards-season style has been so hit-or-miss for me, but it’s clear that she’s working with somebody and that they’re having fun. This Jean Louis Sabaj dress is weird and fun and special, and she looks amazing in it.

Halle Berry rolled up, vampire styles, in this Pamella Roland gown. This is the kind of gown Halle used to wear all the time – very pretty, but not very notable or particularly fashion-forward.

Sally Hawkins in Dior. IS THIS A JUMPSUIT? If this is a jumpsuit, I think I actually like this a lot. If it’s a dress made to look like a jumpsuit, then I’m not into it.

Elisabeth Moss in Adam Selman. The top part of this – the halter – absolutely works for her and she should definitely try more halter-styles. But the bottom half is a mess. So unflattering.

Susan Sarandon wore Alberta Ferretti. And she’s an a–hole.

    I love Mary J’s dress. She looks amazing

    • Josephine says:

      It’s striking and flatters her figure. Not that it would take much to flatter her amazing figure. Don’t love the hair, though. I think it takes away from the otherwise dramatic look.

      • Pandy says:

        Agree. LOVE the dress and it looks great on her but the hair is bad. I do like Sally Hawkins dress, oddly enough.

    • lucy2 says:

      I love it too. It’s different and bold, but not overwhelming, and it just works for her.

  2. Sequinedheart says:

    Halle won it for me.
    Sally Hawkins…. looks like frauline Maria made her play clothes from the drapes.

    • V4Real says:

      Halle looks great. Mary is great except for the hair. The rest major fail. What is that striped mess that Hawkins is wearing. I see she wants to be noticed for what she is wearing and not her performance.

    The remarks on this post are funny, clever and right on point, thank you for making laugh, I needed it (birds, vampires and a-holes lol)

    Sally Hawkins can DO NO WRONG! I LOVE/HATE that folks are seeing more of one of my faves! Mary’s dress…perfection…Mary’s hair….ummmmmm…..Susan Sarandon…F-her, seriously, she broke my heart…and I will NEVA forgive her for that one…

    • Sullivan says:

      Sally is a treasure!

    • BearcatLawyer says:

      I LOVE Sally’s outfit, but I wish it had been properly hemmed. Dior did such a great job tailoring those stripes to exactly square up that to have one side longer than the other is just bad.

    • broodytrudy says:

      I love this look from Sally. I wish the sleeves were a bit shorter, and the waist was up about two inches. Otherwise it’s fun and perfect! I hope she wears something crazy like this at the Oscar’s.

    Mary J. Blige’s dress is gorgeous, but the hair…..And updo might have worked better or a different hair colour? The blonde is so harsh.

    • Amy says:

      I am generally not a fan of people with naturally very dark hair dying it white-blonde. I think it looks really weird and not in a fashion-forward cool kind of way. I also hate Kim kardashian when she wears white-blonde hair.

  6. Esmom says:

    I love Mary J’s. It has a cool graphic quality that makes it mod to me and her hair and makeup and styling are lovely.

    I couldn’t even focus on Susan’s fashion choices last night because she just pisses me off.

  7. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    Sally and Kate should’ve been photographed together.

  8. Nev says:

    Halle all the way.

  9. Slowsnow says:

    Mary J. Blige is KILLING IT and I want Sally Hawkin’s outfit. It’s brilliant.
    Birds and stripes, what else could a girl want?

  10. Vesta says:

    I love Mary’s dress too. It’s playful and interesting and fits her so well.

  11. Tallia says:

    Mary J Blige. Slay!

    Not a fan of Halle’s look. My daughter did a project where you took glitter and vegetable oil and put it in a jar. You flip it upside down – Halle’s dress is what happens. Her hair looks like she just woke up and was going to the gym. Surprised that this is what she went with.

  12. Nancy says:

    I don’t like anybody’s hair today. I want to like Mary’s dress, bc I love her, maybe next time. Hey Susan, take off the shades, we still know it’s you honey. Miss Halle, as always, is a Goddess.

  13. titeju says:

    Mary J. Blige is working with Law Roach, stylist of Celine Dion and Zendaya. I love his styling !

  14. Other Renee says:

    I usually hate bird dresses but Mary’s is all kinds of wow. I don’t get why anyone would like Sally’s ridiculous getup. It looks like one of those optical illusion puzzles where you stare at it until you see the lines move.

  15. KiddV says:

    Love the Mary J. Blige dress. It would look good without the sleeve too. They did the feathers perfectly.

    A-hole Susan looks great in that dress. Looks like she may have lost a little weight, she doesn’t look as squishy or soft.

    I like Halle’s dress, especially the train. Looks old school Hollywood.

  16. Ozogirl says:

    Mary looks amazing in that dress….best dress of the night!! What went wrong with her hair though? The roots, the blonde, the patches…ruins the look.

  17. I Choose Me says:

    Agree on those who say Mary looks amazing BUT for the hair.

    I actually really love what Sally Hawkins is wearing. It suits her.

  18. Taxi says:

    I love Sally Hawkins to pieces but this outfit literally hurts my eyes! Mary K looks better than she ever has in anything else I’ve seen her wear. Really, ever.

  19. Nikki says:

    Mary Blige’s dress is FABULOUS, although I’ll quibble and say I’d adore it EVEN MORE if she removed the sleeve entirely. The sleeve makes this goddess-like creation veer slightly into ice skater queen territory. But still, utterly fun, gorgeous, and satisfying to see stars glam up!! SS doesn’t get a single word in my book; I’m with you, Kaiser.

  20. Anare says:

    Sally Hawkins‘ ensemble is kind of great but TBH I have to look away. It’s like the Eye of Sauron in the middle. It makes me woozy.
