Three Red Carpet Surprises on the SAG Awards

While I didn't catch the SAG awards last night, I spent a bit of time checking out the lovely gowns that graced the red carpet. And while I wasn't quite as impressed as I was with the celebs' Golden Globe gown selection, there were still some big surprises.

Three surprises that stood out to me...

1) Nicole Kidman in this sex-ay Vivenne Westwood gown. And super straight locks. And sheer elements. She looked absolutely lovely! I'm often not super inspired by Nic's choices, but this is gorgeous. Definitely outside of her typical covered up, conservative with a bit of edge, gown choice.

2) A young actress actually dressing her age. Yep - 13 year old Kiernan Shipka (of Mad Men) looked perfectly pretty in Oscar de la Renta. Up and coming actresses should take note!

3) Trends that are on fire: Brown-red lips, big waves, super sparkly gowns. While these may not be *surprises* for many, the brown-red lips don't really do it for me, but Claire Danes seemed to make it happen.
