This Year's SAG Awards Gave Me Such Suite Dreams

Posted on: January 31, 2017

SAG-AFTRA, the Screen Actors Guild and the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, held their annual awards ceremony this weekend and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't glued to the television for the whole of it. In comparison to earlier this month at the Golden Globes, the looks are decidedly more understated. Members nominate and then vote for their peers in several categories and the sense, at least from my vantage point on the couch, is one of solidarity between actors. They all love what they do, they look up to one another and because of that,  feel especially proud to be recognized by their peers. I think that's why this is one of my favorite shows, it feels far more intimate. Fashion however still plays a huge role in the evening. It may be on a smaller scale, but the dresses are still beeeyyyond and the jewels, while fewer, are still super sparkly.

Check out Clea Duvall and her perfectly simple jewelry. This is a look we can all emulate, all day, any day.

A few layered necklaces, matching earrings and a single bracelet -simple glamour. I mean, HELLOOOOOO? I can very easily recreate this look with a little visit to the Charles Krypell case.

Taylor Schilling's attire was  a far cry from her usual prison garb. Her Tasaki hardware, however, lent a cool, tough vibe to her otherwise ultra feminine look.

Sarah Paulson may have been going for minimal, but her diamond earrings and bracelet by Nirav Modi are anything but. That they match makes them a perfect compliment to that Vera Wang, which if I am being completely honest, makes me weak in the knees.


That tailoring... weak




Another actor rocking a suite look (see what I did there?), Amy Adams. Stunning as always, she topped off her sleek black Brandon Maxwell with a punch of Cartier.

I mean, just LOOK at this necklace...  Who wouldn't want all of the matching pieces?

I'd bet that Rebecca Romijn's only fashion regret of the evening was that her neckline, while gorgeous, didn't allow for a sapphire necklace to compliment her other jewels.

I'm not sure which of Emily Blunt's jewelry I covet more, the ahhhhhmazing Lorraine Schwartz earrings and ring that PERFECTLY match her Cavalli Couture, oorrrrrr, that suite-y pie piece of arm jewelry, John Krasinski. I mean, have you seen 13 Hours?*

*Very much worth 144 minutes of anxiety for the 2 of him shirtless #justsaying #werenotintheofficeanymore

Octavia Spencer may have been thumb's up'ing their well deserved win, but her earrings and matching ring get a double thumbs up from me. Yaaaaas.


While suites were all the rage, venturing off trend is not necessarily a bad thing. Typically, when it comes to fashion, I don't like to play favorites. It's too hard to choose. That being said, you do know who is typically saved for last...

So, if there were places, Tracee Ellis Ross is certainly vying for the title of BEST. If her fistfuls of diamonds at the Golden Globes didn't already put her in the running, the mere fact that she had an entire list of jewelers being represented on her person Sunday would have. Narcisa Pheres and Lydia Courteille, and L'Dezen, and Yvel Jewelry, oh my!

As a postscript, I give you Mahershala Ali. #justbecause
