Grease is the Word

This is a PSA to remind you that there’s a live production of Grease on Fox at 7pm EST tonight! I’m excited to see it!

Sadie Dishes- Grease

I think this has the potential to be a good one! If you ask me, as opposed to some of the other TV musical productions, I think Grease was made for this venue. We’ll find out tonight!

SAG Awards 2016: Best and Worst

There were some very elegant dresses at the Screen Actor’s Guild Awards this year. There were a lot of slim silhouettes like column dresses and subtle mermaids. There were also a lot of geometric details from triangle cutouts and interesting straps to geometric patterns. Not a whole lot of over-the-top sexy or revealing gowns, but then again, this isn’t the Grammys. Also, lace seemed to take a back seat to bold colors. All in all, a very grown up scene.

As always, the pictures are from People.com.

Best

Julianna Margulies is hitting all the right notes with this dress. It’s simple, flattering, fashion forward, elegant, and edgy, all in one dress. She can take some fashion risks and I think this one really paid off for her.

Hannah Bagshawe (Eddie Redmayne’s better half) is making a major maternity fashion statement here. Maternity tends to be clingy and sexy or flowy and etherial, but I like this modern, edgy direction. It’s right on point!

I love the understated but modern elegance of Saoirse Ronan in this dress. The crew neck and long sleeves make it stand out from all the cleavage baring dresses on the red carpet, but I think this is just as attractive if not more so. I’m not 100% on the makeup choices, but definitely like the look overall.

Marisa Tomei looked flashy in this forest green frock. I think the silhouette and strong shoulders are doing a lot for her. I like her makeup and hair, but I might have done something a little more dramatic with her hair (asymmetrical cornrow braids on one side, or vintage shiny waves).

Worst

January Jones looks like she’s going to a toga party. I think if you go the Grecian route, you need a more forgiving fabric with a better drape. I know she likes to be fashion forward, but this is a miss and kind of a snooze.

I think Julianne Moore‘s love of fashion got the best of her this time. She loves to try the latest lines and styles, but current does not always look pretty. This looks like a 90’s throwback and an Indian sari gone very wrong. That fabric is cray.

Viola Davis needs some help. I don’t mind the bodice on this dress, I think it’s a fresh interpretation. The problem here is the overall presentation. It looks extremely wrinkled and ill fitting. This fabric is so problematic, I think I would avoid it for award shows. In any case, her hair and makeup look flawless.

Marsha Stephanie Blake of OITNB fame looks like she put on her mom’s old prom dress. It looks like the dress is several sizes too big, and I think the ruching is supposed create a figure for her but it’s backfiring. I think if she wants to create more of a shape, she should opt for a defined waist and fuller skirt.

Who are your best and worst dressed from the SAGs?

Swimsuit Preseason

Since it’s super cold out, I think we should talk about swimsuits. The first round of suits is out for the spring breakers and there are a lot of fun new styles and colors! It looks like high neck halters, crazy cutouts and straps, and mesh are all very in this year. As always, there’s a great combo solid suits and some really crazy prints. Here are some of my favorites of the early releases.

LBS (Little Black Suit)

Sadie Dishes- VS Swimsuit

I love this suit from Victoria’s Secret because it’s basic but edgy at the same time. Everyone needs a black suit, so might as well make it fun!

Classic with a twist

Sadie Dishes- Becca Swimsuit

Becca is one of my favorite suit brands because that have a lot of great basics and a really good range of sizes but I love the fresh take they took on the above suit. It’s a basic look in the front, but a party in the back. Just think about the fun tan lines you’ll get!

Sporty

Sadie Dishes- Nanette Lepore Swimsuit

Sporty suits are often color blocked or have wetsuit inspiration, but I picked this one because it’s the total opposite. There’s really great coverage to avoid body surfing related wardrobe malfunctions, and the back is a lot more substantial as well- almost like a sports bra. Nanette Lepore has this and few different similar styles that fit the bill.

Wild Card

Sadie Dishes- VS swimsuit

Another from VS. This one is really cool because of all the straps/cutouts but it’s also a great combo of covered and edgy. It’s very minimal in the back with just a couple straps. This suit is definitely a party!

Classic One Piece

Sadie Dishes- LaBlanca One Piece

It’s great to have a classic one piece on hand thats flattering and has a little retro flare. I love this silhouette, I think it’s very functional and very chic. This one is by La Blanca.

Wild Card One Piece

Sadie Dishes- Mara Hoffman swimsuit

This one is perfect for a tropical getaway. Even though it’s festive, it’s functional covering all the right spots and shows some skin right at the natural waist which is often a good spot to highlight. It’s on the pricey side from Mara Hoffman, but can you really put a price on fun?

PS- If this is getting you thinking about your bikini body, I have the perfect bikini body equation for you:

your current body + a bikini = your bikini body

In my opinion, you can go to the gym and eat as clean as you want, but the only thing you really need when you put on your suit is a little confidence and you’re set!
