Let’s just say last night was one royal evening on TV.  What, with Miss Universe, the Screen Actors Guild awards, and Downton Abbey competing for viewers, it was the perfect evening to play favorites with who wore what.


At the SAG awards, Emma Stone killed it once again, this time in Dior.  The girl knows how to pick them and she knows how to work it.  Love this about her!

For the most part I thought the SAG gowns failed and that Jennifer Aniston’s breasts were again saggy (maybe it’s all those years of not wearing a bra on “Friends,” but something has taken its toll on her otherwise perfect bod.)  In addition to Stone, I died for only three other gowns:


Camila Alves looked dropped dead gorge again in a stunning eggplant Donna Karan Atelier mermaid with train.  Hash-tag she gets it every time.



I also think Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting looked beyond sweet in her tomato red Romona Keveza.



I loved, loved, loved the pale pink and oh so simple yet stunning Balenciaga column on Felicity Jones.  Perfect hair.  Perfect jewelry.  Perfect bag.  Perfection.

Meanwhile in Miami, the Miss Universe contestants were throwing down their best starlet imitations in gowns that put many a SAG star to shame.  My faves?


Miss Jamaica not only reminded me of a brunette Jennifer Lawrence but was also so poised and I am crazy about her super short hair.   The back of this red stunner was to…die…for.



Miss USA also looked radiant in red, as did Miss Russia…

Miss Korea and Miss Hungary blew me away in blue…

Miss St. Lucia and Miss Czech Republic went for the gold…and scored big in my book…

I’m all about glitter so I loved Miss Peru’s sparkler but I also found Miss South Africa’s classy white number a real winner…

I have a love-hate feeling about Miss Ukraine’s busy and bright pink friller but Miss Guyana’s emerald green gown was a gem.

I love watching these shows and I love picking my favorites.  I wonder if you do too?  Please share!
