Brie Larson in blue Versace at the SAGs: ill-fitting or fabulous?


I’m sorry, but this was one of the first photos I saw of Brie Larson and it is AMAZING. Please, more of this!!! Obviously, both Leonardo DiCaprio and Brie Larson won last night at the SAGs, meaning that they’re both probably going to win Oscars. Leo is so tightly wound, he can barely sit down, but Brie seems a lot lighter and happier. She’s a bit earnest and Girl Scout-y, but that’s far from the worst thing in the world.

Brie wore this Versace gown which she said she just picked out hours before the show. My theory is that she probably had something else picked out and her first choice either fell through or didn’t fit, so she had to scramble at the last minute. You could sort of tell, especially when she was talking to E! on the red carpet – the dress wasn’t tailored (or tailored properly). I will give her some credit: this was a great color and she really stood out on the red carpet (most women went for more muted colors), and she really does have a beautiful figure. If this gown had been tailored properly, you could have been able to see that even more. She has fantastic legs and a tiny little waist.

As for Leo… my God, so pinched. I want him to un-clench at least once during this awards season but it’s probably not going to happen. Then after he wins the Oscar, it’s going to be a buffet of blonde models and P-ssy Posse shenanigans as he finally relaxes. Leo’s tux is Armani, by the way!

    I like the colour of the dress, but nothing else about it.

    • Locke Lamora says:

      Yeah, me too. The dress is bad, her makeup is not good either. And her hair is horrible. She does have a really nice figure.

    • MET says:

      I really liked the colour and concept of the dress – the lack of tailoring hurts her overall appearance.

    • Nutballs says:

      Same here. But somehow it managed to show off her amazing figure still.

    • Alex says:

      The fit is off for me

    • lizzie says:

      agree. the color is stunning and i like the pop of red in the back (not pictured here) which matched her lips but it is one ugly design. too many twists, the glittery knots seem like tacked on afterthoughts and the slit is too high. like most versace – it is trying to put 10lbs of crappy lingerie in a 5lb bag.

      also her boob almost popped out during her acceptance speech.

    • ell says:

      yeah, colour’s lovely. i hate the cut though, it seems tacky.

    • Greenieweenie says:

      The back of the dress has this orange strap behind one shoulder–I really like it. Her lipstick makes more sense when you see her from behind.

  2. CornyBlue says:

    I mean the dress is not not tacky but Brie makes it looks good. They could have had a side part or something her face looks really big for some reason

  3. smcollins says:

    Loved it. I thought she looked beautiful, and she seems to be consistently stepping up her game with each awards ceremony. Can’t wait to see what she does for the Oscars. And yeah…Leo needs to breath and relax!

    • Locke Lamora says:

      I am the opposiite. She looked mediocre at the Globes, pretty bad yesterday. I hope she steps it up for the Oscars.

  4. tifzlan says:

    LOVE the color.

    • MsGoblin says:

      Yes, the color is wonderful.

      It took me a while to place her. She was the teenage daughter on United States of Tara and she was terrific.

  5. LAK says:

    You know how the word ‘curvy’ has been co-opted to mean fat or big boobs, when Infact Brie’s figure is the perfect illustration of the original use of the words ie curvy like an hourglass. Small defined waist, shoulders and hips same width. I think she looks great even with the poor tailoring.

    • tracking says:

      Agreed, she looks gorgeous and does have quite the amazing figure.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think she looks beautiful, too. The dress could have been fitted better, but it is very flattering to her amazing figure, and the color is very fresh.

    • Anne tommy says:

      The wordy curvy has also been coopted to describe women who are skinny but not quite as super skinny as some of their peers- in what parallel universe is Giselle curvy, for example? Oh yes, the universe where some of her peers are practically non-existent…

    • Luce says:

      I so agree with this regarding “curvy.” Giselle isn’t curvy, of course, but as LAK said, it’s typically used these days in other regards. When I think curvy, I think hourglass, whether you are Brie’s frame or Marilyn Monroe’s.

      That said, this dress was hideous. The colour is lovely on her, but the boob cut-out — and the worst, which isn’t show here — is an orange bungee-cord strap thing in the back.

    • Original T.C. says:

      Yep, thumbs up on the dress, the color and her figure.

      Leo on the other hand like stiff, constipated and red-faced from whatever dermabrasion treatment he did.

    • Jib says:

      I think curvy is now used to describe super skinny women with fake big boobs or overweight women. Put #curvy as a tag on Instagram and see what you get. Even Brie is a bit thin to be the traditional meaning of curvy. Think Marilyn Monroe. Christine Hendricks and Sofia Vergara are both called curvy but I think they are beyond the traditional meaning in the other direction. They are voluptuous. Another naturally curvy woman is Catherine Zeta Jones, before she dieted herself away. (Yes, I am an English teacher and fascinated by how words change.)

      Anyway, Brie is lovely but what worries me is who else was considered earnest and Girl- Scout-y – Anne Hathaway. And look what People did to her.

  6. anne says:

    Larson’s dress is vulgar

    • Velvet, Crushed says:

      Agree. Terrible quality of fabric, I think, and, while I don’t dislike vivid bright colours, this particular one does not flatter her.

  7. vivian says:

    She looks like a stripper

    • Minxx says:

      No, she does not. Susan Sarandon on the other hand.. I mean, I love Susand and she’s got a great figure but the bra was too much, especially for the “In Memoriam” moment. What was she thinking??

      • lilacflowers says:

        The black bra during the In Memoriam really stood out as inappropriate. Like her boobs were in mourning.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      Oh, she does not.

  8. bernie says:

    Her speech was so hideous and she looks so cheap

    • kai says:

      Why was her speech hideous? I didn’t see any of it.

      Are they pausing on Skull Island while she’s doing the award thing or is she done filming her part? How does this work? (And, um, please don’t yell at me, but isn’t “earnest and girl-scout-y” kind of perfect for a certain co-star?)

      • lilacflowers says:

        Not sure where they are in filming the monkey movie. They may still be working in Australia or have wrapped in Australia and be taking a break before moving on to Vietnam. They should be finished by the end of February in time for Oscars. Brie, Jason Mitchell, and Corey Hawkins were all at SAG last night so they must be on a break. Hiddleston was in California last week in a recording studio but pictures have surfaced today of him dj-ing somewhere with the director but nothing says where they are.

      • kai says:

        Dj-ing??? That’s a new one.

        Thanks for the info!

      • Meee4 says:

        @lilacflowers the photo of TH in the club playing beat pad was in a club in Australia. The original poster confirmed it was in Gold Coast. Brie said on the red that she had just flew in that morning from Australia and it was the first dress she picked, hence the bad fitting. I didn’t think it was that bad. GG dress was better

      • Bridget says:

        The GFY ladies pointed out that she flew in from Australia yesterday morning. And that’s also why she chose the dress yesterday.

    • M.A.F. says:

      I don’t know about hideous but I’m never a big fan of when someone says “my cast” “my director” etc. And she did just that, thanking her cast as “my cast”. Other than that, I thought her speech was fine.

      • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

        Agree. Don’t care for the “MY crew”, etc. Many people say it, on accident, I think. I also don’t like when people clap for themselves.

    • Lambda says:

      Is this a single troll or a succession or trolls?

      • Holmes says:

        It’s several people speaking honestly. Her speech WAS in fact, hideous. To say she’s supposedly such a great actress (not to me…in anything I’ve seen her in she has a single facial expression and acts by shouting, but what do I know) you’d think she’d have the ability to come off a bit less fake in real life.

      • Marr says:

        I fail to see how her speech was hideous or fake in any way. Or too girl scout-y. Talking about somehow feeling unlovable deep down inside didn’t seem contrived to me. I can get that. Except for the whole ‘my film’ thing she struck me as elegant and genuinely emotional. I guess if you don’t like her, you’re not going to like her for anything she does or says and viceversa.

  9. Diane says:

    I thought Brie’s dress was ok until I saw that awful bright orange strap at the back! WTF

  10. Hejhej says:

    It’s a great colour for her but it’s a terrible dress IMO.

  11. Minxx says:

    I hope she wears something better to the Oscars. The dress has a nice colour but it’s just too much on her and does not fit properly. You’re right, she has a perfect hourglass figure – hips, breasts and a tiny waist, great legs. She deserves better!
    Leo looks constipated and grumpy. I wish he would relax and enjoy the moment.

  12. Ramona Q. says:

    Leo coulda cleaned up his neck stubble, yuck.

  13. Sisi says:

    Leo slipped on his ‘serious actor’ schtick once this campaign and that was when Gaga passed him and it was immortalised in a gif. He will NOT let that happen again this season.

    • Little Darling says:

      Exactly! He’s going to be this tight faced punched up version until Oscar is in hand.

      Also, is it just me or does he looked like a fuller, more rounded face Matt Damon in these photos? Especially in the one where Brie is looking off and laughing.

      He never really did it for me at ALL.

  14. lilacflowers says:

    I wanted to like Brie’s dress because the color was so pretty but I think she flashed Eddie Redmayne when she walked up to get her award.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I couldn’t believe how high cut the dress was. I wanted to like it, too, but it has too many weird details. Simpler would have been much better. I give her credit for wearing it with such poise and confidence, though. She was impressively calm and collected.

  15. BadAssCompass says:

    I like everything about Brie’s look apart the fact that it’s on her, somehow nothing flatters her. Weird.

  16. Carmen says:

    It looks like a blue sheet torn up and twisted around and held together with safety pins. Not a good look.

  17. Cupcake says:

    I think the dress is fun and it looks fairly comfortable compared to some of the others. She gets a B+ from me for this look!

  18. Guest says:

    That dress is horrible…. Geez…..

  19. HK9 says:

    The dress and the shoes are bad but she’s got a great figure though….

  20. bobslaw says:

    Brie is so charming, but I hate that dress. Especially the Swarovsky pretzel twist-tie details. WTF are they?

  21. Tania says:

    I love the colour of the dress and that’s about it. The top part is so strangely constructed, it makes one breast look bigger than the other. My biggest criticism of both her past two dresses is that she lacks support of her girls. Her boobs aren’t small and she needs to not have them flopping around. Her waist is crazy small BTW, wow.

  22. Luciana says:

    I’m not Versace fan but that dress on her looked amazing. She really pulls it off without looking tacky. I imagine Kate Hudson in it and that’s another story. Now get the Oscar, Brie!

  23. Miss M says:

    Dare I say they look good together?!

  24. SOCHAN says:

    This young lady seems to be the new Big Thing but I still haven’t seen her in a single movie. Im sure I will soon though. It took me forever to get around to figuring out who Jennifer Lawrence was. I like the bodice of her dress a lot, and the color is lovely. But I don’t love it once the slit starts to happen.

  25. Tiffany says:

    I thought Leo did lighten up a bit last night. He did not annoy me with his speech, it actually came across as…earnest. Explains why this Oscar is coming.

  26. Bridget says:

    I like the dress, just wish it was a little bit better fitted. Or just more double side tape.

  27. Chinoiserie says:

    Leo’s suit looked pinched as well as his expression, it was too small.

  28. Sesame says:

    Happy for Brie’s win – that said, the dress had a tacky design/cut. Not a fan at all. The coral strap in the back also looks gauche.

    Alicia V looks fantastic in her Vuitton.

  29. AlmondJoy says:

    I absolutely hate this dress. I think it’s because I’m just not a fan of baby blue, baby pink, soft yellow and any other those other colors that remind me of a newborn 🤔 I like bold colors.

  30. Cam says:

    Wow, i’m so surprised to see so many negative comments! He’s dress is unique and the colour is beautiful and she’s radiating happiness and confidence!. And her body! man, Brie’s a smokeshow!

    Leo also seems very happy to me. But maybe Brie can teach him how to loosen up a bit haha

  31. Josefina says:

    I’m happy for her, she’s awesome, but the dress looks like a costume. And not the expensive kind…

    Not like I’m dissapointed though. She’s never really been a fashion girl.


    I know it’s awful, but I don’t want him to win the Oscar. Not that he doesn’t deserve it, but I just want his suffering to continue, it’s too amusing. Idk what’s wrong with me.

    • annna says:

      I agree with you. I can’t stand this whole”Poor Leo hasn’t won an Oscar yet” narrative, as though not having one is a real life problem.

  33. What's inside says:

    She’s great, but the dress not so much. It looks like a Versace knock-off.

  34. What's inside says:

    She’s great, but the dress not so much. It looks like a Versace knock-off instead of the real-deal.

  35. Patty says:

    Damn Leo wants that Oscar bad and his face is a dead give away. The thirst is real with that one. It would be hilarious (and mean) if they called someone elses name on Oscar night. No lie, I’d laugh my ass off.

    Also Brie isn’t really curvy. Good example of small and curvy women: Jennifer Love Hewitt and to a lease extent Leighton Meester. It’s about ratios and proportions. It’s not about being skinny with big boobs, or even about having a small waist necessarliy. And it definitely should not be a catch all term for any woman over a size 12 or six as it seems these days.

    • kibbles says:

      I don’t think Brie is curvy either. The definition of curvy definitely differs among people of various races and cultures. Brie is petite and has curves, but she is not the epitome of curvy and for many women of color she absolutely in no way shape or form is a curvy woman compared to women in their communities. Most people think of Marilyn Monroe, Beyonce, Christina Hendricks, JLo, or Kate Winslet when they think of curvy. And none of the women I just mentioned are fat, but they do have a sizeable bosom and hips.

      • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

        What do you all think about the term “shapely”? My stepfather use to always say, “Michelle Pfieffer is shapely – she’s shapely!” He talks exactly like that. I was always HUH?! MP was very very thin…

  36. serena says:

    I really can’t stand anymore of Leo’s smug face.

  37. TreadStyle says:

    I feel like her dresses always look so Vegas-Show Girly & kind of cheap. I don’t get it bc she seems so laid back but her dresses just clash with that bc they r so look at me. Maybe she just needs a new stylist to help her out bc she is pretty and could do so much better dress and styling wise.

  38. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    YAY!! Leo won. I think he looks very happy & has a twinkle in his eye.
