Vintage on the Red Carpet at the S.A.G. Awards

The S.A.G Awards always seems like the most fun awards ceremony: actors drinking champagne at their cliquey tables, heaping praise on each other in a mutual admiration frenzy. I imagine how difficult it was to continue to pursue their dream despite all the toil and rejection, and how they’re finally getting the accolades they have always craved…and from their peers. It’s especially nice to hear the modest ones (who gush with pride at being an actor) as they accept their awards. I liked watching it this year, even though I can’t stand movies like, “The Help.”

Unfortunately, no one wore vintage except Tina Fey (I did get excited when I saw Rose Byrne’s white Elie Saab jumpsuit, inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer in “Scarface,” which was described as “vintage” in the press, but was actually from 2009.) Tina, however, wore a gorgeous vintage Versace gown that looked flattered her immensely. The internet was buzzing that she finally “got it right” by wearing a dress that was sexier than her previous choices at other awards shows. We’re thrilled that she made the “green” choice and hope she continues to!

The funniest part of the awards was when the "Bridesmaids" girls discussed the rules of their "Scorcese" drinking game. Kristen Wiig is a Chelsea Girl customer and we'd love to see her in vintage!
