SAG Awards 2011 Best Dressed

The Screen Actors Guild Awards were tonight and overall I was sort of disapointed. Glee didn't win anything, the fashion was sort of so-so and the show itself kinda boring.

That said there were still some stand outs on the red carpet. Two, of which, are fast becoming my award season MVPs and one, an up-and-comer I happen to have had the pleasure of meeting, and am always routing for!

1. Mila Kunis in Alexander McQueen

- In one of the big trends of the season "red-orange"
- With a gorgeous $300,000 Cartier Tiger Cuff
- Second "best-dressed" list she's appeared on this season

2. Heather Morris in Romona Keveza

- Gorgeous nude tulle and chiffon Romona Kevaza Gown
- Swarovski Crystal clutch pulls the feminine, ethereal look together

3. Claire Danes in Louis Vuitton

- In another printed dress! (go figure this would be a trend and I'd like it so much - really a coincidence I think..)
- With gorgeous hot pink lipstick and 1950s "Mad Men"inspired hair

And finally, an honorable mention to Natalie Portman who showed us what "pregnancy chic" is all about and is much improved from the Globes in this gorg. fitted gown by Azaaro and 2mill worth the Tiffany Jewels!

So, what do you think? Who were your best dressed at this year's SAGs?

Daily Bling - Saturday, January 29th

Kim Kardashian in Lorraine Schwartz

Red carpet season is in full swing! The SAG awards are tomorrow and I'm hoping to see some fun, bold, trendy jewelry on the red carpet. The SAG awards are definitely the more "casual" of the four biggies (GG, Oscars, Grammy and SAG) so it would only make sense our favorite stars and starlets mix it up and go less traditional with the jewels. My favorite designer who gets this look just right for the red carpet? Lorraine Schwartz. Schwartz is a favorite of young hollywood and her looks have been seen on the likes of Beyonce, Blake Lively, Lea Michelle and Angelina Jolie (who could forget those gorg. emerald earrings she did for her at the Oscars two years ago)! So how could I not pick a daily bling for SAG weekend from the unique and gorgeous design of Lorraine Schwartz!

As always, I will be live tweeting my thoughts and commentary on the fashion tomorrow evening beginning at 6 pm. You can follow my tweets @hollyberness and make sure to look out for my best dressed recap on Monday!

Best Dressed - Golden Globes 2011

How good were the Golden Globes last night? So many of my favorites were nominated and won! Glee, The Social Network and Black Swan to name a few! The fashion was also spectacular with very few stars and starlets disappointing.

Huge trends we saw on the carpet included emerald green, nudes/blushes, pink and red! We also saw a return of more dainty jewelry, from intricate diamond netting like necklaces, and feminine diamond drop earrings.

Hair and makeup was also fierce, and continued the "vintage" trend. We saw alot of french twists and full, wavy ponys and coiffs. Red/coral lips ala the original Barbie Doll (or Mad Men) was all the rage!

Of course, we had a few favorites! So below, we breakdown our top three looks of the evening.

1. Anne Hathaway in Armani Prive

- Rocking the "Pink" and "Retro" trends
- With Vintage Van & Cleef Arpels Yellow Diamond Earrings and Cocktail Ring, Roger Vivier Clutch and Brian Atwood Platform Heels

2. Mila Kunis in Vera Wang

- Rocking the Emeral Green trend
- With Judith Leiber Clutch and gorgeous Lorraine Schwartz gold and diamond leaf motif cuff and earrings

3. Olivia Wilde in Marchesa
GG Olivia Wilde
- Sparkling nude gemstones on her gown help her channel the "nude" trend
- With Tiffany & Co Citrine Earrings and Gold, fierce, Christian Louboutin Shoe Booties
Special Note: She'd be our number one, if she did a bigger earring or cuff. Needed something too accessorize the look just slightly...

Daily Bling - Thursday, January 13

I love the lariat style of this Club Monaco necklace for Its got a fun hippie vibe that isn't too over the top and it certainly adds a little zest to a more simple silhouette, like the grey crew neck tee above.

Even though you can file this necklace under "boho chic," its got a wide appeal and would go with many weekend to work day looks.

The leather cord lariat necklace features quartz crystals and silver tone beaded fringe. It's $59 at Shop Bop!

Kim Kardashian's New Jewelry Collection Available NOW!

Belle Noel, Kim Kardashian's new jewelry line, is now available for pre-sale online at Singer-22! I think about Belle Noel, Kim's middle-of-the-road priced costume jewelry line (more expensive than her Bebe collection, but much cheaper than her Loren Jewels collection) as Kim's answer to the highly successful Nicole Richie's House of Harlow line. Our prediction for the line? Plenty of in-stores at Kitson and probably footwear and bags to follow.

We have to say, the Kardashians do know style, and the new Belle Noel Collection doesn't disappoint! My favorite piece in the new collection is the Honey Hexagon and Black Leather necklace ($95), which can be viewed below on Kim herself. Its sort of a harder, cooler, younger version of a John Hardy or Yurman design.
