Julianne Moore in sequin green Givenchy at the SAGs: tin foil fug or striking?

22nd Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Arrivals
Julianne Moore rarely gets it right on the red carpet and usually that’s Tom Ford’s fault (or whatever collaboration she has going on with him) but last night we can blame Riccardo Tisci, assuming he’s behind this as the head of Givenchy. She was in this green Givenchy gown which was too tight around the bust and looked like the top half of little mermaid costume. All she needed was a fin and some shells in her hair. The light green metallic lines of sequins were just awful and look at the crocodile-like strip of fabric around the cutouts at the waist. How did an entire team of people let her sign off on this look? Something nice – her styling was good, especially compared to everyone else’s.

Marisa Tomei was also in green, which was one of the on trend colors last night. (See also: Uzo Aduba.) Marisa brought the 70s glamour in this Zuhair Murad gown. Kaiser liked it more than I did, I thought it looked a little dated, but overall it’s a gorgeous dress. When I first saw the gown I thought it was an allover sparkly green but there are little sequins sewn into the fabric and it must have taken so much craftsmanship.

Laura Prepon was in white Carmen Marc Valvo, and this dress had the kind of splotchy attern on the top that we saw in Saorsie Ronan’s dress. It reminded me of this Marc Bouwer dress Christina Aguilera wore last year and which we’ve also seen on Jennifer Lopez and Naomi Campbell. This splotchy trend needs to die. Laura won as part of the Best Ensemble in a Comedy, for Orange is the New Black, and she gave a shout out to diversity. You can read her quotes here.

Christina Ricci was in a peach Christopher Kane gown with a blue and pink lace top with black stitching with led to a pink skirt. The dress was bizarre and her styling was worse. Her eyemakeup was garish and overdone and her highlights were cheap looking. She looked like Taryn Manning last night. (Who did not show up to support her OITNB cast, she has some issues of her own to deal with.)

    With her pale skin and copper hair, I think she’s always the perfect person to pull off these color combinations that would otherwise look bad on non-redheads.

    Also…Riccardo Tisci dressed her? As in….Kanye’s boyfriend?

  2. Locke Lamora says:

    Marisa Tomei looked great, everyone else, yikes. Julianne’s hair colour is beautiful, though.

    You’d think that someone like Christina, with pale skin and hazel eyes woukd look good as a blonde, but it doesn’t suit her at all.

  3. heckyeah says:

    Is it just me or does that scarf around Julianne’s bosom look like it needs to go under the straps???

  4. Minxx says:

    Up until now I thought Nicole Kidman took the prize for worst dress of the evening but Julianne just stole it from her. This is horrible, horrible, horrible. I have no words. This shade of green is very unflattering and the dress looks like something a child would wear to a fancy dress party.
    Marisa’s dress is great except this shade of green is so dull, it washed her out. The rest is just meh.

      Yes, I thought Julianne Moore’s dress was awful when I saw it on other sites, but I hadn’t noticed the crocodile edging. Shudder. Visually AND texturally hideous, then.

      Ricardo must have been thinking about Kim when he designed this one.

  5. Cupcake says:

    I love this dress on Julianne. The color is stunning for her and dress is youthful. Her face is for the gods. She gets an A- just because the bust is off.

    • Sillyme says:

      I love it on her also, but agree that she needed a bit more room in the bust. She has a great red carpet game and isn’t afraid to experiment.

  6. Jayna says:

    I love Marisa Tomei’s gown on her..

    I thought Julianne really pulled that gown off. The color on her with her hair color and skin was striking.

    And can I just say that Julianne is 55 and Marisa is 51, and they are showing how great you can look in your 50s without ruining your face trying to look younger with blown-up trout pout lips and pillow faces from too much filler and overdone botoxed frozen faces.

    • Tania says:

      I agree, I don’t know that these two haven’t done “something” but they both look amazing. Marisa Tomei is practically ageless.

    • ell says:

      honestly, the secret to looking good in your 50s is to stay out of the sun. neither of them has a tan, and you can just tell they were careful with sun protection. my mum and her sisters are in their mid 50s to 60s and they all have amazing skin because they were never in the sun. and they also didn’t smoke and drunk in moderation, which helps, but still it’s mostly staying out of the sun.

    • Esmom says:

      Agree with you about the dresses. And I was also thinking the same thing about Marisa and Julianne…that they are not deathly afraid of aging and they look fabulous.

  7. Prairiegirl says:

    OH Julianne honey, no!
    Marisa looks great.
    By going so blonde, Christina looks like every other Hollywood actress and completely undermines what made her so striking, that is, lovely pale skin and contrasting dark hair. Great dress on her, though.

    • ell says:

      some women go blonde around mid 30s because they start to go grey, so it’s just easier to be lighter. also dark hair on pale skin looks lovely on a 20 something, but it ages you in your 30s.

  8. JH says:

    Marisa Tomei is a goddess overall. She looks perfect.

    I can not even remotely stand Laura Prepon. Ugh.

  9. tx_ava says:

    ok but why is Christina Ricci blonde I’m not into that :/

  10. Sarah01 says:

    For me Julianne is mostly a no. Her dresses always look mall like.
    Laura’s dress is very pretty.

  11. kibbles says:

    I used to love Christina Ricci during her Addams Family and Casper days. She was weird in a good way and that made her uniquely beautiful. It’s very sad to see her look just like any other forgettable blonde in Hollywood. She was a beloved child star. I know she has grown up, but there are some things that should never change, such as her natural black hair.

  12. HeyThere! says:

    Call me crazy but red heads look amazing in any shade of green. I think she looks fresh and beautiful! I would love to see this dress in person.

    I also had zero clue that was Ricci. Wow!

  13. Kri says:

    Tisch needs to be stopped. So awful.Why are you haring on Juilianne…she’s not KK,you know.

  14. Lucy2 says:

    I love Marisa’s dress so much!
    Julianne’s…no. The color is too garish and the styling is just bizarre. She looks pretty but that dress is a big no for me.

  15. What's inside says:

    Dress sucks. Julianne, however, is gorgeous.

  16. serena says:

    I love Marisa Tomei and Laura Prepon’s dresses, just gorgeous! On the other hand.. I really dislike Christina Ricci with blonde hair.. not her colour.

  17. JenniferJustice says:

    Bummer! Julianne is one of my faves but the cut of this dress is not flattering. It makes her look thick and she is not. Love her hair though.

    Love Mariss Tomei. She can do no wrong.

    Prepon looks so pastic and smooth – creepy like a blow-up doll.
