Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton at the SAGs: ’70s disco-fab or disco-fug?


Michael Fassbender didn’t even bother showing up to the SAG Awards last night, which is sort of fine because it probably would have gotten depressing to see him lose to Leonardo DiCaprio at every awards show. Still, Fassy hasn’t shown any interest in coming out to support his girlfriend Alicia Vikander either, and she’s actually winning some big awards. Vikander took home the Best Supporting Actress SAG last night for The Danish Girl. Which means she’s looking more and more like a lock on the Oscar. How do you feel about that?

Alicia wore this ‘70s-vibe custom-made Louis Vuitton. Celebitchy liked it, but I didn’t care for it that much. Honestly though, this is much better than the glorified apron she wore at the Globes (which was also LV). At least this gown didn’t make her look like a tiny doll. It moved well and it was interesting to look at, so it was not the worst thing overall. She actually wore makeup too – Alicia had been doing the understyled thing on red carpets for months, but she’s finally changing it up. I think her date last night was Danish Girl director Tom Hooper?




Also in attendance: Eddie Redmayne and his pregnant wife Hannah Bagshawe. I can’t find the ID on Hannah’s dress, but she almost always wears British designers, so this is probably McQueen or something. Eddie’s wearing Dior. I feel a little bit sorry for Eddie that he’s not a bigger part of the awards season conversation, but he did win so many awards last year, so maybe it’s okay.

    Oooh love Mrs. Redmaynes look. Alicias is ok but not great.

    • ichsi says:

      I didn’t know she was pregnant and when I saw her I thought ‘Now THAT’s how you do bag dresses!’. Hehe. Alicia’s wasn’t my favourite but it’s a million times better than all the LV designs she wore before. It’s different yet elegant and she looks like an adult in it for starters.

    • Ally8 says:

      Love both of these dresses, but Hannah Bagshawe’s is the best of the night, imo. Such a great combo of pattern and color. I would wear the heck out of that. Stylish, modern, striking.

      I guess they actually paid for it? Otherwise, amazing that PR person Hannah didn’t get the info out there on the designer.

    • mee says:

      agreed. LOVE Hannah’s dress. So cool and elegant.

      Alicia’s is ok but I see the Partridge Family bus on sequins. (70s reference for the youngs out there).

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    I think Alicia pulls this dress off very well. It’s sort of ugly, but it’s also different and interesting. I love textiles, and the glittery squares are beautiful in their own way. I love the styling and earrings, too. I was a teenager in the 70s, and this doesn’t give me that vibe at all, but I’ve never been great at identifying fashion eras.

    Hannah looks very pretty.

  3. anniefannie says:

    That dress is gorgeous on Alicia and the color scheme is perfect for her skin tone!
    Redmayne looks grim, I don’t think he’s happy being 2nd banana.

    • Original T.C. says:

      I love Alicia’s dress too. The white squares break up the disco look; it fits like a glove on her and she is such a natural beauty. Lovely face.

      Same with Hannah Bagshawe. Like her dress too and her makeup. Great pregnancy dress that looks good even when you are not pregnant.

  4. Rainbow says:

    I have mixed feelings for this. Like the shine, don’t like the pattern.

    Hannah’s dress is meh but she is cute.

  5. Guest says:

    I love Alicia. And she looks great. I am very happy for her. Btw why is it mentioned all the time that Fassy doesn’t show up to support her? This relationship is not a PR one for me. She doesn’t need him to support her. It was her acting which turned her in an Oscar nominated actress. Who cares if Fassy shows up? It really bothers me that she is labeled as “girlfriend of….” because she can act, you know…So she hustled? Who cares? Everyone does…. So she said that she has some movies coming out which might be Oscar contenders… Guess what? She was right and I love her for that… Btw you don’t need to show up together on a RC to show the world that you are a thing oh and I think she is way too good for Fassy…..Team Alicia and Team Brie all the way….

    • Minxx says:

      Take a deep breath and count to ten :)

    • Elisa the I. says:

      @guest: ITA.
      It sucks that she gets reduced to her relationship with this guy all the time.
      Also the dress would look fab if it was a lot shorter, like a mini-dress. This way it looks too heavy.

    • Gina says:

      I think she looks beautiful, and if things keep going well for her, she’ll outrank him career and fame wise in a year’s time. But he’ll never be referred to as ‘boyfriend of’…

      She’s all but guaranteed an Oscar with this momentum, and two of her upcoming film projects look like awards season winners as well.

      It’s just a small, but very vocal group of Fassbender stans who are angry he’s a) not with them and b) not dating a black woman like they think he should, so she’s an easy target.

      P.S. You really don’t need to take a deep breath and count to ten

      • Minxx says:

        I don’t care who Fassbender dates (I’m not “black” either ;) but it’s Alicia who mentions Fassbender in every interview, so she’s now stuck being called his “girlfriend”. Why are you surprised?

      • Elisa the I. says:

        I love your PS. (;

      • Guest says:

        Thanks Gina although I tried to count to ten without asking myself why Fassy is mentioned all the time… Did not work… I think she is beautiful, classy, talented and smart.

      • censored says:

        I like Alicia but I tend to like some of the folks who get a hard time around here

        People on here rag on celebrities relationships all the time( not that I agree with it ) plus Fassbenders girlfriend before Alicia was also white (Madeline ) so at first I was wondering why you felt the need to bring race into it , then i saw the name Gina and remembered your recent posts and went Aaaah at least you are consistent

      • A says:

        Yeah that poster Gina is constantly posting negative and borderline racist (probably to not get banned) comments about black people. She stalks Lupita in every posts and copy/pastes comments. She really has something against black women for some reason.
        Constantly brings race into it when it has nothing to do with the subject. Anything to start a race war I guess.
        She probably is that tumblr girl who called herself gorillahunter or something like that and posted a bunch of racist shit about NIcole, MIchael’s previous gf. It’s creepy and sick how far some people will go ugh.

      • Gina says:

        Wow. I’ve never posted anything even remotely racist in my life, and I’ve never commented on a Lupita post either, I don’t even usually read them. I think she’s incredibly beautiful and talented, but she’s not great gossip.

        I’m guessing there’s more than one Gina on here, and I really don’t think I need to defend myself for something I haven’t done, and certainly not ‘anything to start a race war’.

        I have noticed that some on here people have a problem with MF dating a white woman, and I pointed it out. All you need to do is look at older threads and people insist he’s got a type, and are quite upset that he’s still with AV.

      • Fluff says:

        She doesn’t mention him in every interview (I’ve never personally seen one where she did mention him), but female celebs are under insane pressure to answer those questions. I’ve personally witnessed actresses being screamed at and heckled by a group press for refusing to answer boyfriend questions.

      • Guest says:

        Don’t worry Gina…. I didn’t unterstand you wrong…I know why you mentioned the ” Black woman” part because people mentioned it before. You are save with me. And I think people are jumping at each others throats way too often here. See I even counted to ten…. 😂

        Btw she kept talking about Fassbender because she was asked. It seems that there are indeed people who are being honest when it comes to their private life and don’t talk about having been friends for God knows how many years bla bla bla….

      • A says:

        Then there is definitely two Gina’s around because the Gina I am talking about is easy to find through a simple search and you’ll see her (his?zirs??) comments if they haven’t been deleted yet.
        Anywho’s, if there are black women who don’t like him with white gf’s then that is obviously pathetic, same thing with white women who have a problem with robert pattinson’s black gf.
        I personally haven’t seen any black women say anything racist or negative about white women here or about Alicia but I wouldn’t be so quick to assume it’s because of race if they do, Michael has dated white women and asian women before without problem.
        I think it’s more about her personality than about her race.
        I have no dog in this fight since I think Fassbender is ugly and old/hard looking and I am indifferent when it comes to Alicia.

    • Naya says:

      She really doesnt need him for a career climb, she is doing just fine by herself. That said, it is strange that he wouldnt show up for her moment. Especially when he had a valid excuse for being there himself (being a nominee and all). I really doubt they are together, frankly. And if they are, I think its a casual no-strings thing, not just because of this no-show although that does add to my case. We should really just proceed like they are over.

      • CornyBlue says:

        He is shooting Assassin’s Creed and probably did not want to take time off for an award he wouldn’t win. He said he is very staunchly anti awards season kinda guy. He seems like the kind of person who does not really show up to support his girlfriend so there is also that.

      • Minxx says:

        he’s shooting Snowman in Norway, not Assassin’s Creed, that’s done. I don’t know if he’s “the kind of person” who does not support his gf, but he definitely does not show up for Alicia. Draw your own conclusions.

    • CornyBlue says:

      I can tell you most of the internet does not care about Fassy not showing up with her and love her a ton. Gossip sites have to be gossipy i guess.

    • Abigail says:

      Fassbender is in Oslo shooting The Snowman on what appears to be a very tight schedule (starting Alien:Covenant right away). Long flight there and back, likelihood of losing (it’s not “his time”); too bad he couldn’t be there, though; he looks great on the red carpet.

    • Billy says:

      She labeled herself, dude. Red latest Vogue article, totally unnecessary to have him being mentioned as her boyfriend. Especially if you want to be regarded as a serious actress with no clingy attitudes. And considering every such article is confirmed by her and her pr team, it means she knew they were going to write it and went along with it.

    • alice says:

      I agree with you that the shaming with this girl is sometimes ridiculous. She’s a fine actress but IMO she doesn’t deserve the Oscar YET. She’ll get one sure someday, but is too soon for her, it’ll probably will do more damage than good for her career.
      As for her bragging a year ago that she would get a nom for movies that she couldn’t know yet how they’d performed, that was weird. Nobody, not even the most navigated actors know how a movie will do, is rare that somebody would predict: “yeah I’m getting an oscar nom, totally” right after a movie wrapped, like Alicia did. That, tells you how Oscar and awards in general work: PR, campaigning, power players, studios knowing the candidates and even the winners even before a movie opens. It’s highly probably that some big fish told her: baby I’ll make you win an Oscar and being new and naive she went on and told it to the first interview she had.

  6. Mudflaps says:

    I loved Alicia’s dress but her hair…not so much. Eddie’s wife always looks fantastic at these events

  7. CornyBlue says:

    Alciia looked gorgeous I just wish her makeup was a bit more lively

    • Minxx says:

      No, I think her makeup was very good this time, I liked her sleek hair too. She seems to be less tanned these days and that’s a vast improvement.

  8. SloaneY says:

    She’s very boring to look at. I mean, she’s fine, she’s generically pretty, I guess, but I don’t see one interesting thing about her. Just me?

    • LAK says:

      Not just you.

    • sills says:

      She is generically pretty, but I don’t think she has the personality / “oomph” to pull off this dress. I feel like it’s wearing her.

    • Ethelreda says:

      Definitely not just you. Vikander has all the ‘ingredients’ to be beautiful, but somethng is missing. She’s just very bland, and I can never shake the idea that she looks like a 14 year old playing dress up. And her clothes always seem to be wearing her, not the other way round.

    • AJ says:

      Not jut you. She looks like a dozen other girls if you smudge their faces just right.

  9. smcollins says:

    I think she looks pretty. It’s definitely a different look for and it works. I also noticed that this type of shiny, metallicy gown was very popular lastnight. There seemed to be a lot of it on the red carpet.

  10. LAK says:

    I like both dresses.

    • Esmom says:

      Me, too. I think Alicia’s is really different from the typical red carpet fare, so bold and graphic and mod looking.

  11. Betti says:

    Am not normally a fan of Alicia’s red carpet stye but she pulls this one off well – those colours really suit her. And as much as I love Hannah R’s red carpet style (again love the dress) I sometimes wish she would add some colour to her make up palette – the natural look kinda washes her out and she has a lovely face and great skin.

  12. Minxx says:

    I hated this dress on the red carpet but it looked much better on stage. Better than the apron, definitely. I wonder if she’ll wear all gold for the Oscars :) .
    Kate said something about Fassbender sending her funny text message before the awards but he was a no-show. I don’t blame him – he’s filming in Europe and a long, exhausting flight to see Leo win was probably not high on his agenda.

  13. henriette says:

    Her dress was nice and she was lovely

  14. Jane says:

    I see shiny people…

  15. Zaytabogota says:

    She’s one of few people who can look good it that dress. It’s a bit ugly but I kind of like it.

    Hannah looks lovely, her husbands very feminine looking.

  16. Savina says:

    Not crazy about this look but you are right about it compared to the last one she wore. And it’s better than some of the other dresses worn last night. It seems fashion is hitting a low point :(

  17. BadAssCompass says:

    I think she is too tiny for this type of dress, so it gives more of a 70s disco and less of a statuesque vibe. I like color and pattern on Eddie’s wife better, but not the sacky cut.

  18. Carmen says:

    Vikander’s dress was the best of the night. It could have looked garish but all the colors complimented each other and the dress fit perfectly.

  19. taxi says:

    Sparkly, shiny Mondrian overwhelms Alicia. Or it’s an homage to a patchwork quilt.

  20. Miss V says:

    I love Alicia’s dress. She is a lot like Natalie Portman for me looks-wise… Absolutely stunningly beautiful, but not a whole lot of sex appeal. Perfect skin, perfect face, super talented, awesome style… Yet still kind of boring. Just my opinion…

    • Ethelreda says:

      Alicia reminds me very much of Natalie Portman too, for the same reasons. I think Portman is more beautiful, but Alicia is much more talented. As you say, feature by feature both of them are exquisite beauties, but they lack presence and sex appeal. Like I said above, both of them look like little girls playing dress up.

      • Minxx says:

        Alicia is pretty but Portman is a true beauty – both of them leave me cold as far as acting and screen presence. I agree, they both lack sex-appeal.

    • Betti says:

      I can see a resemblance but Portman is getting more and more like Winona Ryder these days. Alicia def is a better actress than Portman who I never really got what all the fuss was about – i know i know that people rave about her in The Black Swan but that seems to have been her one and only big career ‘moment’ – I’ve personally never found her to be that great or engaging an actress.

    • SusanneToo says:

      She reminds me of a young Jeanne Moreau in looks and talent. I can see her playing Catherine easily. I think she exudes sensuality rather than overt sexuality.

    • ctkat says:

      YES! I can objectively see that both are very beautiful women, both are good actors, and yet I am very bored by both.
      But that’s why people have favorites- my boring is another’s refined, and my favorites are no doubt far too vulgar for some.

  21. Insomniac says:

    I usually HATE what LV puts her in, but this wasn’t so bad. And I think her eye makeup is gorgeous; it really makes her eyes pop.

  22. teacakes says:

    The Redmaynes look great, kudos to Hannah especially.

    And I kind of love Alicia’s dress. It’s definitely not a snooze, and I love the combination of sequins+simple silhouette and pattern. I admire it when people take a risk on the red carpet, that’s rare in recent years.

  23. SOCHAN says:

    Alicia’s dress probably looked phenomenal in person. Sometimes photos just don’t translate well. The dress is nice, it’s not awesome. I love Hannah’s maternity gown except for the color.

  24. Cupcake says:

    I LOVE this dress!! It’s much more fun than the dresses Alicia usually picks and her make-up is spot-on. This look is an A for me.

  25. Moon says:

    I think I’m in the minority here – I love this dress. She also pulls it off well, she’s a gorgeous girl. But she’s looking too tanned and crisp for me, lay it off girl and wear some sunscreen. And her winning this award makes me fume because she’s a bland, boring and fake actress who does nothing but cry (however beautifully), I find her acting phony and I can’t believe the accolades she’s getting. Her acting was mediocre in the Danish girl, which was an awful movie and she only stands out because the movie and especially Eddie were awful awful awful. I’ve seen a lot of Alicia’s movies and she’s not a good actress, she’s limited in range and very one note, her saving grace is that she’s pretty and has a good on screen presence. As for fassy, at this point both their stans hate one another, pr or not, these two are better off not being photographed with one another

    • juls says:

      She’s winning for Ex Machina too,which is the most winning in the supporting category. If you think she’s limited in range,it’s just your opinion. Two completely different performances like her android in Ex Machina and the British activist in Testament of Youth show that she has a lot of range,imo. It doesn’t surprise me that she has three performances in the Indiewire critics poll.

      • Moon says:

        She had many different roles, in which she played them all similarly. Well not the robot one, that she was just blank but it worked for a robot.

  26. Luciana says:

    Nope… I would love that dress on Jane Fonda but not on Alicia.

  27. WTW says:

    @Moon I think her natural color is sort of tawny/swarthy. Don’t think she tans all the time. Even in “The Danish Girl,” where she was told to be “white as a sheet,” she didn’t come close to being so.
    I think her coloring is beautiful, but she happens to be darker than the average “white” person from her region.

    • Fluff says:

      I didn’t realise she was white till I read it here.

    • Fatou says:

      People must be blind. She looks white. She is white. She and Brie Larson could be sisters. She’s just a big fan of tanning (real and fake). There are photos of her from before she became internationally well known and she has a similar skin tone to Natalie Portman or Jennifer Aniston. She just has a medium white skin tone, but now, probably because she likes the look and its her signature or whatever, she just tans a lot more. Better pay packets probably lead to sunnier holidays, because if there’s one thing that Swedes adore it’s sunny vacations.

      As a mixed race Swede this whole “Alicia Vikander is mixed/black!” thing gets a bit annoying. It’s as if we actual black and mixed Swedes are not good enough to represent ourselves so a white actress has to step in for us. People should be more educated, and know that there are black, mixed, Asian, etc. Swedes. And that there are many, many shades of beige/white.

      • Camille says:

        I guess people have never heard of olive skin tone before (meaning they can be a pale-ish tone but tan really well, to put it simply).

  28. Miss M says:

    Go Alicia!

  29. Jayna says:

    I really like it on Alicia. It’s different but works on her. I like her hair simple, because the gown is so busy.

  30. ell says:

    “Fassy hasn’t shown any interest in coming out to support his girlfriend Alicia Vikander either”

    or maybe she doesn’t need him to hold her hand through every award, since she’s successful in her own right without him?

    dress looks appalling btw. redmayne’s wife always looks so miserable at these events lol

  31. Chinoiserie says:

    Glorified apron was excactly what Alicia’s globe dress looked like.

  32. lila fowler says:


  33. Flower87 says:

    Still, I dont see anything speciall about her… Still.. I dont go to see her films.. It must be a Louis Vuitton think.. Michele Williams is so boring and unpleasing too! When I met her I almost apologised for being there.. Lol This Alicia girl has the same vibe..
    I dont get why they get this kind of girl..
    Thats why I dont buy in Louis Vuitton anymore! Me? Giving MY money? Never again!
    Plus the dresses are awful and the bags are too.. Sort of.. “Why I am buying this?” Well, you pay a 2000$ for something that costs in reality 500$. Well, If You really need to buy one, go to a thrift store then! You may find it for 600$ … Well, actually 649$! I checked last week..
    But, personally, I woundnt invest my money in boring people.. BUT It’s up to You..

  34. Fluff says:

    Love both dresses, but I’m a fiend for glitter and disco.
    There are Redmayne stans convinced his wife is either faking her pregnancy or got pregnant by someone else as part of a PR deal. LOL.

  35. Jayna says:

    I think Alicia’s is one of the best of the evening because it’s unique but works. When you see all the photos of her in the gown and movement of it the way it shimmers when the light hits it at different angles and when she’s walking up the stairs and the split is all the way up showing her great legs, you see how amazing the gown is on her.

  36. eatingpie says:

    Why must everything she does be reduced to “But Fassy isn’t with her!!”? She’s more than just Fassbender’s girlfriend, I daresay.

    • ell says:

      exactly, that’s one of the reasons why some actors dating other actors are so reluctant to come out with their relationships; because they don’t want to be known as someone’s gf/bf.

    • Kreks says:

      I think because most of the articles approved by PR early on had her mentioned as Michael Fassbender’s girlfriend. “Upcoming new actress and Michael’s girlfriend”. Now everyone associates her as his girfriend. Thats how the industry works, unfortunately

      • Kiki says:

        That’s is why you shouldn’t use your relationship as a marketing tool. Now i don’t like her because she is a stuck up, snob who needs t lighten up.

  37. HeyThere! says:

    She is a lovely young lady for sure. I am indifferent about this dress. I don’t love it and I don’t hate it. I really wish I could see these dresses in person. I bet they are a lot more beautiful!

  38. AlmondJoy says:

    BEST dress of the night! I love it! I would rather her hair up or pulled into a sleek bun/chignon and I would change the earrings to studs… But the dress is 🔥🔥🔥

  39. kri says:

    I normally wouldn’t like either of these, but strangely…I like both? AV’s dress is so well-fitted and I like the colors in Hannah’s. I think I like AV’s dress because it is as if Klimt and Mondrian collaborated on fabric.

  40. Camille says:

    Alicia looks lovely, and I have no probs with her winning, anyone but JLaw!

    • CornyBlue says:

      Not the same category

      • Camille says:

        Err thanks, but I already know that. However I suppose I should clarify my comment for you. I pretty much just don’t want JLaw to win *any* awards, simply because I think shes highly over rated and I’d like to see some new up and comers winning everything instead.

        Oh and I haven’t seen The Danish Girl, but I did see Ex Machina and I think she should have been nominated for that.

  41. Josefina says:

    I love her makeup and hair. She reminds me of Salma Hayek but in a less womanly, more girly kind of way.

    The dress is ugly but I kinda love it like that.

  42. Sticks says:

    Love it except for the boat neck. I also absolutely LOVED the apron dress. Was my favourite GG dress, actually.

  43. A Fan says:

    I love it! It’s interesting, unique, and beautiful on her…

    [*Which shouldn't be difficult when you look like that*]

  44. Reece says:

    I love them both. In fact I think i would have saved them both for the Oscars.

  45. DazedandBemused says:

    Alicia is absolutely stunning and looks gorgeous in that amazing dress. Plus, she has the most flawless skin ever. Sigh.

  46. What's inside says:

    Alicia works it well – not anybody could wear that dress and not look awful. Eddie Redmayne’s wife looks very good as well, but somebody tell him to take his hand out of his pocket. That pose is not for him.

  47. Andrea says:

    Makeup and hair look great, dress looks like disco fug. But it is an improvement from the usual. Now, can she make some decent movies. The only movie I liked her in was a royal affair (she really wasn’t great in the Danish girl).

  48. Aurora says:

    Love! FUN!

  49. K says:

    Alicia was the best dress of the night! This is fashion, it is sleeves done right (which is impossible), you won’t forget the gown, she could move in it, and while it was a show stopping dress it didn’t overpower her. Perfection. Best dress of the night. True fashion piece.
