Best & Worst Dressed of the SAG Awards

Last evening was the SAG Awards. Were you watching? I have to admit, overall the looks on the red carpet were really fantastic. I thought that the majority of celebrities stepped it up from the Golden Globes a few weeks ago. At the Golden Globes it seemed as though everyone was either in nude or black...and at last night's SAG Awards a lot more color was worn which made me smile.


Michelle Williams looked so lovely in red. Simple yet totally chic. She was my favorite of the evening.

Emily Blunt's dress was a show stopper. On TV it looked more lime in color than it does here in this photo. I love it either way.

Diane Lane was a dream in this blue one shoulder number. She kept her hair up in a simple ponytail. Supposedly it was rather warm in LA being comfortable was key!


Amber Heard (who I'm still not sure who she is...but here she looks so much like Scarlett Johansson) looks like she ran into Edward Scissorhands on the way to the red carpet. I'm fine with cut-outs...but this was just too much. Can we say overkill?

Rose Byrne...where do I begin? Let me start out with a compliment: I love her hair! Now, on to the jumpsuit. When they were initially interviewing her they just showed the top portion of her outfit and I thought she looked really cute...and then they scrolled down. It's like she raided Elvis's closet. 

I really hate it when bad fashion happens to good people. Kristen Wiig...what the heck are you wearing? The color and style of the dress aren't terrible. I do wish that the waist was higher and not dropped like this. It just makes her look dumpy. My biggest issue (what makes her my worst dressed of the night) is that she is wearing a halter and a big ugly choker. Kristen, take note: you do not wear a fat choker (or really any necklace like that) with a halter style dress. NEVER.

Who made your best and worst dressed lists of the SAG Awards? Do you agree with my list?

What They Should Be Wearing- SAG Awards

I love awards season! To me nothing is better than watching my favorite celebrities strut their stuff down the red carpet while wearing a fabulous gown. The other week I watched the Golden Globes and thought most of the celebs looked okay...but some of them just looked like they were playing it safe. I'm super excited to see what they will be wearing to the Oscars. But I'm getting ahead of myself. This Sunday is the SAG Awards and I'm spending my Friday evening thinking of what my favorite actresses will be wearing should be wearing.

Sofia Vergara's curves would look amazing in this Zac Posen gown.

I would love to see Kaley Cuoco in a bold color to keep her look young and fun. This Christian Dior dress would be fantastic on her.

This red Elie Saab gown would be perfection on Julie Bowen. I think it would look so great with her blonde hair.

The vintage feel to this Reem Acra would be so beautiful on Michelle Williams.

Emma Stone would look breathtaking in this Badgley Mischka gown. 

What do you think of my picks? What do you hope your favorite actresses wear?

Don't forget to join the red carpet hangout going on via Google+ on Sunday.

SAG Award "Hangout"

This Sunday is the SAG Awards...and Snapshot Fashion is going to host another Google+ hangout session where we will talk about the fashions on the red carpet. I did this a couple of weeks ago for the Golden Globes, and even though it was fun I will be the first to admit that there were a bunch of hiccups in figuring out Google+. I had never used it before (oops!)...but I think I have it figured out and hopefully it will run a lot more smoothly this time. This will sort of be a mini-practice session because I will also be doing this for the upcoming Oscars.

If you want to join in on the video chat session please be sure you have Google+, a webcam, and E! channel. Please email me if you are interested. The red carpet begins at 6pm eastern time on Sunday, January 29th on E!.

Polka Dot Love

I absolutely love polka dots. They are such a huge trend right now. Actually...I feel weird calling them a "trend" because were they ever actually out of style? This print has been the must have look for so many people...for so many years! My absolute favorite way it is worn is on a dress. Polka dots have that vintage feel that make a simple dress look so classic and chic.

Cameron Diaz wore a beautiful black and white Christian Dior dress while in Paris for Couture Fashion Week. Don't you just love this look on her? I mean, if she wore this exact dress in a solid color she would still look pretty...but trust me when I say that we wouldn't be making a big fuss over her look. The polka dots are the star of this look. Beautiful Cameron...beautiful!  

Now, not many of us can afford to wear a Christian Dior dress...but there are so many affordable options out there that all of us can deck out our closet in spots!

Lindy Hop Lovely Dress available at ModCloth- $82.99

Midi Dress in Mesh Spot available at ASOS- $55.51

Sweet Dots Forever Dress available at ModCloth- $69.99

Dropped Dots Dress available at Anthropologie- $158.00

Will you be wearing a polka dot dress any time soon???

Anastasia of Beverly Hills Review & Contest

I absolutely love Anastasia of Beverly Hills. So when they told me they were sending over their Wish You Were Here set I was overjoyed!

 I love their packaging! So fun, yet so informative.

Don't you just adore the shadow colors? I'm always looking for golds and purples to wear since my eyes are hazel and those shades make the green in my eyes pop. The blues in this set are a little out of my comfort zone (I'm not going to lie to you)...but I think they would work well for a night out.

Trying my best to look like a cool California girl (haha!). I really love the colors and the quality of the makeup. Even though I am wearing makeup I don't feel like I have too much on. I feel natural...yet pretty.

Check out my review-

Do you love Anastasia Beverly Hills as much as I do? They want to give you the chance to win an amazing prize: One winner will receive a round trip ticket to Los Angeles, a 2 night stay, hair and makeup makeover by ABH, a photoshoot with the Anastasia team, and a six month supply of their products! Amazing right??? Check out their website for complete rules on how to enter. GOOD LUCK!

It is so rainy and gloomy here in Pennsylvania today that I really needed to dress in color that will help boost my mood.

plaid shirt- H&M
tank- American Eagle Outfitters
skirt- ELLE available at Kohl's
tights- H&M
boots- Lucky Brand

Do you ever dress in a specific color to change your mood?

Lookin' Fab

I am in love with this black and white Chanel gown Michelle Williams wore to the Critic's Choice Movie Awards. I swear this girl looks fantastic in just about anything she wears. She always keeps her look so elegant and chic...with a vintage feel to it.

What do you think of this gown...and Michelle's style in general? Do you love her wardrobe as much as I do?

Red Carpet Hangout

The Golden Globes are on this Sunday and can I just say I couldn't be more excited! I *love* red carpet events...and I really love it when E! is on the red carpet showing off all the fashion. Thanks to my new interest in Google+ I came up with a great idea: a red carpet hangout session. Usually I result to just tweeting about the styles on the red carpet...but with Google+ hangouts you can video chat with multiple people. I am inviting all fashion bloggers to join me in a fun hangout this Sunday. I have already sent evites to most of my fellow fashion bloggers...but if I missed you and you are a fashion blogger, have Google+, a webcam, and the E! channel shoot me an email and I'll send you the evite. Please take note that there is a limited number of spaces in the hangout available.
